Click to viewBoomp3.com Emotions ran high outside of popular Italian restaurant Il Sole on Monday night as Goldie Hawn attempted to come to grips with her missing car. The valet brought a series of silver Mercedes Benz, but none of them belonged to the Cactus Flower star. Eventually, Hawn’s silver Benz emerged from its seclusion. The valets could not come up with an answer for the confusion other than simply suggesting that people look into another color for their Mercedes Benz.

With our daily "MGM Tower Under Attack" report in the books, "retard" outrage in the streets and everything thankfully quiet on our Billy Bob Thornton Co-Star CurseWatch, the only real news we have left to pass along today actually speaks for itself: "The Best Breast List: wowOwow’s Peek Down Dazzling 40+ Décolletage." Indeed, the saucy ladies of the women's Web site wowOwow — including Liz Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, and Lily Tomlin among others — gathered their 10 favorite middle-age busts in no particular order for discussion, observation and, if you dare, debate. We don't exactly know the criteria (bikini-rocking couldn't have hurt Helen Mirren), but see if you can lift and separate them in an excerpt after the jump.
