It’s okay to love Tom Cruise. Sure he’s a little nuts, but so are all actors. And if you judge him for his Scientology beliefs, then don’t you also have to judge every other actor with a religious affiliation that thinks there’s an imaginary, bearded man in the sky waiting at heaven’s gate? Plus, he’s still super hot, and here at The Dishmaster, looks are most important. So watch the trailer below for ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol‘ and start to get excited about the best action-movie franchise in recent history.
Because I’m in love with both Howard Stern and Rachel Maddow, you can imagine my excitement when my friend pointed me to the video below. Maddow is clearly a Howard Stern fan, dedicating a full eight minute segment to Benjy Bronk’s hilarious press-conference-crash. Maddow called Howard Stern both “horrifying and compelling” and said that he’s “the greatest long-running, gross-out, genius performance art satire radio spectacle of [her] generation.” Can Howard Stern please book Rachel Maddow as a guest?
If you’ve never had your heart broken by the one you love, then you’ve never truly lived. And while nothing can expedite the healing process, it’s certainly welcome and unique when the heart-breaker apologizes. So you can imagine my excitement when I witnessed the very sexy Chuck Bass finally apologize to Blair on ‘Gossip Girl.’ Sure it’s imaginary, but I enjoy turning to my imaginary world in times when reality fails me. Let this be a lesson to men everywhere. Watch the beautiful scene below.
“Being asked to help put on the Oscar show was the proudest moment of my career. But as painful as this may be for me, it would be worse if my association with the show were to be a distraction from the Academy and the high ideals it represents.” Brett Ratner on stepping down from his post as producer of the Academy Awards, because — well . . . he’s a douchebag. And Brett — if you’re reading this, I have some advice. Treat those around you with a little respect and maybe you won’t be such a terrible person.
It’s time for celebrities everywhere to get over Marilyn Monroe. I get it — she was beautiful, tortured, and talented — but can’t someone think of a more original person to copy? At least Jennifer Aniston had the bright idea to copy Barbra Streisand. Lindsay Lohan has hopped on board the copy-cat train with her new Playboy shoot, where she will be “channeling” Marilyn Monroe’s Tom Kelley nude pictorial. No word yet on whether she’ll follow this up with a Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her arm like Megan Fox. Further Reading: Karina Smirnoff Poses for Playboy — What’s the Point?
Was there a moment when Dr. Drew realized he’d gone to the dark side? Or has he convinced himself he’s still doing important work? And speaking of important work, is there anything more valuable than conducting an on-air ultra-sound to determine if a pedophile’s teenage girlfriend has had breast implants? I suppose there’s a line that everyone crosses when they get a taste of fame, and even real doctors are susceptible to becoming blood-sucking maggots. Shame on you, Dr. Drew. Watch below.
“I apologize for any offense my remarks caused. It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.” Brett Ratner (A.K.A. the douchiest douche on the planet), on saying “rehearsal is for fags.”
Howard Stern should give Benjy Bronk a raise. The Stern writer has gotten his ring-master’s name in the press on numerous occasions, most notably for asking Anthony Weiner if he is “more than seven inches.” His latest victim is Gloria Allred, who was set to introduce Herman Cain’s latest sexual-harassment accuser when Bronk took the podium to chant in Hebrew, followed by assurances to the press that he may or may not be the woman in question because perhaps he got “genitalia surgery.” Watch below.
Our greatest loves are often the most turmoil-driven. Angst breeds obsession, and obsession is debilitating. So when I came across Ingrid Michaelson’s song, ‘Sort Of’, and I heard the line, “I find you stunning, but you are running me down,” I had to post it. The song is on her 2009 album, ‘Everybody.’ If you’ve ever experienced that kind of painful love that “flattens” you, then pay close attention to the lyrics.
