Lisa Lampanelli v. Lou Ferrigno — Lisa’s a Bully

Written by , Posted in General

This post is a week delayed, but it was so disturbing it could not go unmentioned. When Lisa Lampanelli found herself in the boardroom next to Lou Ferrigno on Celebrity Apprentice, she fought to the death to stay in the competition, which included verbally beating Lou Ferrigno to a pulp. If you’d like to see a bully in action, watch the clip below. I actually felt sorry for Lou Ferrigno. Just because you’re on a reality show doesn’t excuse acting like an assh*le.

Cheryl Burke & William Levy Dance Argentine Tango — Kill It!

Written by , Posted in General

The Argentine Tango has always been my favorite dance on Dancing With the Stars, and Cheryl Burke is one of my favorite professional dancers who doesn’t get the credit she deserves. She gets the best out of her partners, and her choreography is complicated without being over-the-top. And it doesn’t hurt that William Levy is not only talented, but he’s easy on the eyes. They easily stole the night with the Argentine Tango. Watch below.

Maria Menounos & Derek Hough Dance Salsa — Ego-Mania?

Written by , Posted in General

There’s something about Maria Menounos and Derek Hough’s salsa dance tonight that rubbed me the wrong way (no pun intended). Perhaps it was Derek Hough’s insatiable desire to show-off his body, or Maria’s faux-coy act. Either way, it didn’t work. I finally understand Howard Stern’s rants about how the male dancers’ egos have become to big for the show. Watch below.

Maksim & Melissa Dance the Salsa — Maksim is Shirtless

Written by , Posted in General

Every week that Dancing With the Stars airs I get an inevitable call from my mother, which involves an endless monologue about Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s hotness. “Mother,” I say, “I know, I know. What do you want me to do about it?” But this week was particularly different, and I’m forced to jump on board my mother’s drooling train. Not only did the man dance a very sexy salsa routine — but he also had his shirt open the entire time. Did I mention he was covered in sweat? Alright, I must stop now. Watch below, and note how the judges never have anything nice to say about him no matter how good his routine. It’s tough being beautiful.

Quote of the Day — Billy Joe Armstrong on Axl Rose: “He’s Crazy”

Written by , Posted in General

“Shut up. He was the greatest frontman to ever step in front of a microphone. But he is … crazy. And I can vouch for that.” Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s reaction to the audience’s boos when Axl Rose’s name was mentioned during Armstrong’s Guns N’ Roses induction speech. Despite Axl’s absence, three of the original members were present, including: Slash, Duff McKagan, and Stephen Adler.

Rachel Dratch Continues Self-Hate Tirade — I’ve Had Enough

Written by , Posted in General

I like self-deprecating humor just as much as the next person, but even The Dishmaster has a boiling point. Former Saturday Night Live performer Rachel Dratch is promoting her new book, which involves endless confessions about how by “Hollywood standards” she’s considered a “troll, ogre, woodland creature or manly lesbian.” She also recounts how Tina Fey replaced her character on 30 Rock, and how the media subsequently speculated that Dratch wasn’t attractive enough for the part. I’ve had it with Rachel Dratch. I realize that controversy sells books, but there comes a point where self-deprecating humor just becomes sad. She’s not ugly, and I’m sick of hearing her proclaim otherwise — even if it’s a joke.

The Dishmaster’s Radio Show — Weekly News Roundup

Written by , Posted in General



 

If you’re a loyal fan of The Dishmaster, then I’d like to welcome you to my first weekly radio show where I discuss all things pop-culture. If you’re not a loyal fan, then welcome to my site, and brace yourself for my superficial rants about endless irrelevant subjects. Sure there’s more important things going on in the world — but someone has to complain about nonsense — and it’s going to be me. Thank you to my friends at Brick & Mortar Recording for making this happen. Enjoy below.

Joel McHale Spoofs Taylor Swift — HILARIOUS

Written by , Posted in General


I’m constantly defending my love for Taylor Swift, and I’m constantly told by my musician friends that I’m ridiculous. But it’s not until I came across Joel McHales very funny spoof of the singer that I finally understood the criticism. There’s no need to explain further — just watch the brilliance below.

SNL Does “The Californians” — Excellence!

Written by , Posted in General

My favorite part of Saturday Night Live’s “The Californians” skit was the very obvious effort for the performers to stay in character. I’m told that Lorne Michaels becomes insanely angry when his performers laugh during their skits, which makes it even funnier to watch. Also, after living in California for a few years, I was shocked at its accuracy. We’ve all been to the party where all anyone discusses is Los Angeles traffic, and we’ve also all encountered a brain-dead-nutjob. Watch below.
