Quote of the day

Celebrities you'd probably hang up on if they phoned

While the likelihood of receiving such a call is remote (in the extreme), reality-TV show host and ex-photographer's model Anna Nicole Smith tops a list of celebrities whom Americans say they wouldn't care to hear from on Valentine's Day. The list results from a nationwide poll commissioned by SBC Communications of San Antonio, Texas, the US's second largest local telephone service provider. The top names on the don't-bother-me list and their TV networks, by percentage:

1. Anna Nicole Smith, "The Anna Nicole Show" (E!) 35%
2. Kelly Osbourne, "The Osbournes" (MTV) 21%
3. Evan Marriott, star of "Joe Millionaire" (Fox) 10%
4. Simon Cowell, British record executive and judge on "American Idol" (Fox) 8%
