While those of us in America can only recall the days of Manny Ramirez just being Manny, pro baseball fans in Taiwan still get a routine dose of the former slugger, including a recent home run that led to a wild ex-girlfriend remark by the announcer. Ramirez, who plays for the EDA Rhinos in the Chinese Professional Baseball League, launches a solo home run to left-center field that easily clears the fence. The announcer calling the game, who is bilingual, suddenly bursts into English.

A lawsuit filed by Tim Burton's ex-girlfriend over his assets should be dismissed, an appeals court has ruled. The California Court of Appeals issued a ruling this week ordering a lower court judge to grant a motion by Burton's attorneys for a summary judgment. The move halts a trial scheduled for next week that would have focused on the couple's nearly decade-long relationship, which ended in 2001. Burton's longtime girlfriend, Lisa Marie, sued the director in 2006. She claimed that she was cheated out of money that Burton had promised her during their relationship.

A calm Anthony Pellicano confidently assured a onetime assistant not to worry that his alleged wiretapping enterprise would come to the attention of authorities, the former employee and government witness told a federal jury Tuesday. "He said, 'Calm down. Relax. They are not going to find anything,' " Tarita Virtue recalled during her second day on the stand in the trial of former private investigator Pellicano and four others charged with illegal eavesdropping and other crimes. Virtue, a 38-year-old model testifying under a grant of immunity, said Pellicano made his reassurances almost eight years ago when the private investigator allegedly wiretapped the ex-girlfriend of a client.

One of the unfortunate echoes of "Breaking Bad" - other than real-life-teachers-turned-meth-cooks - is the proliferation of the principled drug dealer as a character trope. It's certainly possible to make an intelligent film about a coke-peddling antihero, but writer-director Zak Forsman's "Down and Dangerous" merely exploits its cops-versus-cartels backdrop to preen its world-weary scofflaw protagonist, Paul (John T. Woods). Unambitious to the core, "Down and Dangerous" is the perfect flu movie: It's so predictable in its beats and pedestrian in its execution that a viewer can slip in and out of consciousness, confident she won't miss much and will know exactly where in the story she is when she awakes.

Everyone admits that the scandal surrounding Peter Orszag, director of the Office of Management and Budget at the White House, is a fatuous waste of time. Orszag fathered a child with one very high-gloss girlfriend and, just weeks after the baby was born, he got engaged to another woman with similarly stellar stats. But really, aren't there more important things to think about (like managing the budget)? Or this: Why are people so surprised that Orszag could score with hot women?
