Quote of the Day — Matt Grant Trashes Shayne Lamas

Written by , Posted in General

“Did I find true love on the show? Um, no. Not one little bit. I proposed to a woman who was about a foot and a half shorter than me, who had nothing in common with me, and thought there were palm trees in London. Did I make a mistake? Yes. Did I look like an idiot? Yes. Do I regret it? A little bit.” Matt Grant on whether he regrets proposing to his ex-fiance, Shayne Lamas.

The Bachelor Ratings are Down — Ben Flajnik Stinks!@

Written by , Posted in General

When The Bachelorette’s Ashley Hebert reduced her romantic prospects down to a select few, I thought, “ABC is screwed on their next Bachelor. Everyone Ashley likes is boring and unattractive.” The network often picks a reject from the previous season to kick off the new season, because the viewers are already familiar with the star, which increases the likelihood of immediate ratings. But what do you do when the reject lacks the star power necessary to carry the series? In ABC’s case the answer is — cast him anyways. And they’ve paid the price with bad ratings. They should have cast someone entirely new, but I’m sure the powers-that-be felt it was too risky, considering their decision to cast the newbie Matt Grant led to its worst ratings of all time. It was a lose-lose. Perhaps Ashley Hubert should apologize to ABC for her taste in men.

Dave Grohl on ‘After Lately’ — Jen is Obsessed

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t think the video below is very funny. In fact, I think Chelsea Handler’s side-show, ‘After Lately’, is altogether humorless. That being said, Dave Grohl is incredibly hot, and I therefore have no other choice but to post it. Please watch and then envision The Dishmaster and Grohl living happily ever after. After all, we manifest our destinies, right?

Cee Lo Green Butchers John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ — Defends Himself

Written by , Posted in General

If you’re going to cover a song, then cover the song. Sure it’s fine to change the melody, but only an egocentric nut would take one of the most famous songs ever written and completely change its meaning by altering the lyrics. Cee Lo Green sang John Lennon’s Imagine on New Year’s Eve and he changed “Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too” to “Nothing to kill or die for, And all religion’s true.” When asked about the controversy, Green said that his choice was “done out of love and out of peace and unity and tolerance and acceptance and all those many wonderful things that seem cliche and a little bit cheesy. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” It’s always the angry dudes that preach “peace and unity.” Only someone with internal rage would mess with John Lennon lyrics.

Quote of the Day — Jimmy Buffet on His Stage Fall

Written by , Posted in General

“I’m healed up from my fabulous stage drive in Australia. To dispel a few rumors, I wasn’t drunk and there wasn’t a beautiful girl in the audience that caused me to walk off. When I woke up I said, “Was it a heart attack or a stroke?” I was very happy when they said, “No, you had a concussion. You just walked off the stage like a Miss America contestant.” Weirdly, my tennis game got better afterward.” Jimmy Buffet, on his well-publicized stage fall during his Sydney concert.

Howard Stern Drunk Dials Twitter Fans on New Years

Written by , Posted in General

The art of Howard Stern’s genius is that his ideas are simple yet brilliant.  His latest ground-breaking adventure involved calling his twitter fans on New Years, telling them he and his wife are drunk-dialing and asking for phone numbers.  And according to some tweets, Stern followed through. Too bad I was out of the country and missed the opportunity. Here’s hoping he makes house calls next.

The Dishmaster Returns! – Happy New Year!

Written by , Posted in General

Fear not, loyal readers! The Dishmaster is back from vacation and as promised, I received just the right amount of rest and relaxation to rejuvenate my dishing skills. May 2012 be about letting the past go to embrace the future. And when all else fails — have a laugh. Don’t be too concerned about my new found positivity though — I’m still pretty cranky. Hooray for the new year! And if you’re feeling extra creative, please share your favorite vacation pictures with me. Can you beat my iguana?

Happy Holidays — The Dishmaster is On Vacation

Written by , Posted in General

In an effort to restore what’s left of my sanity, I am taking the holidays off from all things gossip and technology. It’s time for some family lovin’ and some adventure seeking in a far off land. I will return in full form after the new year. To all my loyal readers — please take this time to enjoy your holidays, and thank you for your continued support. I couldn’t do this without your positive encouragement. I’ll see you in 2012!

Will Nicole Scherzinger & Steve Jones Leave X Factor? — Fired?

Written by , Posted in General

Most television shows go through major changes after season one, and I predict that X Factor will be no exception. When recently asked about her return, Scherzinger prepped for the potential public relations cleanup, saying it’s more difficult than she expected to publicly reject people. Translation? — She fears she’ll get fired and she’s planting the seeds to make people think she quit. As for Steve Jones, he will likely get the boot as well, given the enormous amount of negative criticism he’s received. Apparently, Jones was only hired as a last minute replacement for Corbin Bleu, because Scherzinger refused to work with him, and the network therefore had to scramble for a new co-host. They chose Jones because of his chemistry with Scherzinger, but when Scherzinger replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge, the reason for Jones’ hiring became moot. The truth is, neither Scherzinger nor Jones will know about their status with the show until “pick-up letters” are sent out for the new season. If no such letter arrives, then they get the axe. Until then, only the network executives know the plan. I suggest firing Scherzinger and Jones, leaving the judging panel at three, and then hiring Brian Dunkleman as the new co-host (okay, that last part is a joke . . . sort of).
