Ed Schultz Calls Laura Ingraham a “Right Wing Slut” — She Deserves It

Written by , Posted in General

Ed Schultz got himself in hot water for calling author Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut” after Ingraham attacked President Obama for drinking Guiness in Ireland on an official visit. Ingraham predictably jibed back, calling Schultz a misogynist, which ultimately forced Schultz to apologize for his “vile and inappropriate language.” For those who have forgotten, Laura Ingraham is the same asshole who called Meghan McCain a “useful idiot,” and later attacked her weight, calling her a “plus-sized model.” At the time, McCain took the high road, saying, “To all the curvy girls out there, don’t let anyone make you feel bad about your body. I love my curves and you should love yours too.” So in case Laura Ingraham is listening — you don’t get to arbitrarily attack another woman and then scream “misogyny” when someone attacks you. When you’re a jerk, I’m fine with just about any offensive term being thrown in your direction. That includes “slut.”

Beyonce v. Lorella Cuccarini — Inspiration or Ripping Off?

Written by , Posted in General

My mother used to say that copying is the greatest form of flattery. Then I’d tell my mother she’s ridiculous. I’m not one of those people who enjoys when others copy my work. In fact, you probably don’t want to be on the other end of that accusation. It isn’t pretty. So when Beyonce was accused of copying Lorella Cuccarini’s 2010 performance during the Billboard Music Awards, she insisted that she was merely inspired by it, and didn’t directly copy it. Hey, at least she admitted to having seen the performance. Most artists would dismiss it as a strange coincidence. Lorella’s performance is so original, it’s only fair to say that Beyonce liked the idea and took it on as her own. So does it matter? If I were Lorella, it would infuriate me, especially since no credit was given to her idea during the performance. She only admitted to the similarity after the copy-cat accusations surfaced. Watch below and judge for yourself.

Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring — 20.5 Carats — Necessary?

Written by , Posted in General

Far be it for me to poo all over someone else’s happiness, but is it really necessary to get a 20.5 carat engagement ring? According to the newly engaged Kim Kardashian and her fiance Kris Humphries — there’s no limit when love and wealth are involved. Can we chop that ring up into little pieces and send it to a homeless shelter somewhere? Let’s just hope she has security guards around her 24/7, because nothing says “mug me” like a gigantic and accessible diamond with a publicized worth.

Loveline Will Air on AOL — Not the Same Without Adam Carolla

Written by , Posted in General

For years I’ve been wanting to see Loveline on television again. It was one of my favorite shows growing up, and it taught me everything I didn’t want to know about third nipples. I was so obsessed I even caught the evening radio show after watching it on MTV. Since Adam Carolla left the show, it has never been the same. Carolla says he left because he was strangely offered a much lower salary, which led him to think someone wanted to push him out. The disloyal Dr. Drew chose to continue the show without his much-need partner in crime, and Mike Catherwood is his current co-host. If you saw Catherwood on Dancing With the Stars, then I don’t need to explain why Mike Catherwood is not exactly . . . entertaining. So does it really make a difference that AOL will start to air video of Loveline? Bring back Adam Carolla!

Vintage Clip: Kirstie Alley Tells Larry King About Her Oprah Bikini Moment

Written by , Posted in General

I’ve developed a new love for Kirstie Alley lately, mostly because of her incredible performances on Dancing With the Stars. While watching some recent clips, I came across her interview with Larry King below, where she discusses her choice to appear on Oprah Winfrey’s show in a bikini. When King asked her “what she was thinking,” Kirstie accused him of looking disgusted by the clip. She then explained that she didn’t know the clip would live on forever, and she just figured she’d pose once and then be done with it. Here’s hoping she gets a show on Oprah’s new network where all she does is prance around in a bikini.

Quote of the Day: Howard Stern on Building a Career

Written by , Posted in General

“If you want to take your life and ride around on a bicycle, just do me one favor. When things aren’t going well for you when you’re older and u don’t have health insurance and you don’t have any money in the bank because you spent your youth riding a bicycle instead of building your career, I don’t want you complaining, and I don’t want you going on welfare, and I don’t want you asking me for a handout. That’s all.” Howard Stern on his staff-member’s terrible decision to quit Stern’s radio show so he could bicycle around the country for an entire year.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy — Best Freestyle on Dancing With the Stars

Written by , Posted in General

Kirstie Alley is my favorite contestant in the history of Dancing With the Stars. The goal of the show is to find someone that you can watch progress throughout the season, and Kirstie Alley embodied that. Plus, she’s lost so much weight in such a short period of time, I find myself doing cartwheels in her honor. On tonight’s finale, Kirstie and Maks stole the night with their freestyle. It’s not that it was the most technically perfect, it just had the most heart. It also doesn’t hurt that Maks is an Adonis of beauty. Seriously — he hurts my eyes.

Quote of the Day: Zach Galifianakis on his January Jones Experience

Written by , Posted in General

” . . . if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party — I’d never met her — and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for ten minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so fucking be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?” Zach Galifianakis’ take on his awful January Jones encounter, after recently hearing that she called him “the most naturally funny man she’d ever met.”

‘The Hangover’ Director Todd Phillips Insults Howard Stern’s Robin Quivers — Total Jerk!

Written by , Posted in General

‘The Hangover’ director Todd Phillips called Howard Stern today to promote his sequel, and he’s officially on The Dishmaster sh*t-list. First, he sounded exhausted and boring, and second, he took aim at Robin Quivers, saying he was “over her.” When Stern prodded, Phillips said she upsets the rhythm of the show, and she’s “changed for the worse with her constant interruptions.” I’m sure Quivers incited his anger after insulting his film, ‘Due Date,’ saying that no one saw it. When Phillips informed Quivers that the movie made “$200 million” worldwide, Quivers responded with, “from where? Thailand?” Clearly the guy can’t take a joke, because his retaliation was far worse than her original insult. Since I’m a huge fan of both Robin Quivers and Howard Stern, I’d like to tell Todd Phillips to suck it. Also — he should go to bed early the next time he makes a Stern appearance. That might help with his boring disposition.
