(NEW YORK) So it's a slow news week! What else to do but pore over the delightfully juicy musings of our recent (if inexplicable) obsession, New York Post television columnist Linda Stasi. Clearly, she's on a roll this spring, so without further ado, behold these pearls.

On Nurse Jackie:
"Look, I love Edie Falco -- and who doesn't? But to think that every man she meets falls dangerously in love with her character, Nurse Jackie -- thief, junkie, disloyal wife and big ho' who will have sex with anyone with a prescription pad -- is the stuff of high sci-fi."

On Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution:
"Some towns are known for their beaches, some for their quaint town squares, some for cultural activities. Huntington, W. Va., is known for its fatties."

On Christian Siriano: Having A Moment:
"Because the clothes are so drop-dead gorgeous, real, and -- did I mention gorgeous? -- there is not tension in worrying about whether the buyers will buy. The clothes are fairly priced and beautifully made. Hopefully as Siriano becomes the next Armani he won't forget that there are real people who don't live on the Amalfi coast and have millions in spare change to spend on clothes."

On Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty:
"In the market, of course, they have to eat fried bugs as if they're some kind of beauty enhancer when, I suspect, it's just some stupid excuse to watch the now sensationally slim Simpson eat bugs and gag."

On High Society:
"On this coast, the woman who put the 'lite' in 'socialite,' soon-to-be-divorcé Tinsley Mortimer proves that the socialows she hangs with are nearly as vulgar and as criminal as the Neiers clan...Tinsley's pals, unlike the West Coasters, add the always-important social qualities of impromptu violence and casual racism to the mix."
