Ann Curry Says Goodbye to ‘The Today Show’ — Stays Classy

Written by , Posted in General

I really like Ann Curry. I think she’s classy and sweet, but she just didn’t have a co-host personality. She’s a little too serious, and she’s better suited to cover hard news. But that’s not a bad thing. ‘The Today Show’ co-hosts are cheesy and relatively douchey, which Ann Curry isn’t. If it’s true that Matt Lauer pushed her out, she certainly held it together during her farewell speech. If it were me, I might have socked him. This really is a positive move for Curry. Her “success” is in no way related to being a co-host on ‘The Today Show.’ And as an aside, she is very pretty. I’d like to buy that red dress she’s wearing. Watch below.

Chris Evans Talks to Women’s Health Magazine — What’s His Type of Woman?

Written by , Posted in General

Women’s Health Magazine asked Avengers star Chris Evans a series of entertaining questions, though they failed to ask the most important one. Does he have that Captain America costume, and would he wear it in bed with The Dishmaster? Oops, that was two. Read some of his answers below, and click here for the rest of the interview.

1. Finish this sentence: Women don’t understand how much men want to. . .
Watch football on Sundays. And I know a lot of women who don’t understand that the whole day is going to be dedicated to football. That’s all we ask!

2. What might be a surprise to learn about you?
I’m a pretty decent tap dancer. I enjoy all types of dancing, actually. I get a couple of drinks in me and I stand up—it just happens.

3. What qualities make a woman marriage material?
I really like women who get emotional about babies and puppies. I’ve met some incredibly cool women who are tough, but the woman you marry should have a really soft side.

4. The ultimate turnoff is. . .
Arrogance and fake modesty. Nothing is worse than a beautiful girl fishing for compliments by saying how gross she is. On the flip side, I find genuine humility and modesty attractive.

5. Should girls play hard to get?
Oh God, I hate that! Nope, nope, nope. I just don’t like games in general.

Kate Walsh Goes to Belize for Oceana — See Pictures!

Written by , Posted in General

I don’t post paparazzi pictures on The Dishmaster, so I was excited to get these approved, candid photos of ‘Private Practice’s’ Kate Walsh in my inbox. She’s the face of Oceana’s Save Sea Turtles campaign, and she hopes her involvement with the conservation group will “raise awareness,” because, people “don’t know that [sea turtles] are an endangered species.” See the beautiful pictures below.

Lisa Ling v. Oprah — Kardashian Kriticism

Written by , Posted in General

Though I appreciate her candor, if I were Lisa Ling I’d likely keep my mouth shut about the woman keeping me employed. While promoting her OWN television show, ‘Our America,’ she made it clear that she disapproved of Oprah’s Kardashian interview, saying although she understood why she did it, she doesn’t understand why the Kardashians are the most revered family in the country. Allow me to take a moment to point something out to Lisa Ling. The Kardashians are not the most revered or respected family in the country. They are on a mindless television show, which provides a relaxing release at the end of the work day. And just because I watch that television show, doesn’t mean that I can’t also watch the news. I am fully capable of doing more than one thing in the day. Should I also stop eating popcorn because it’s not oatmeal?

‘Teen Mom’ Recap — Maci Crashes Ryan’s Vacation

Written by , Posted in General

If you watch ‘Teen Mom,’ then you know that the producers desperately try to edit Ryan into a villain, but the true villain is Maci herself. And this week’s episode solidified it. In short, she asked Ryan if she could attend his family vacation with him and his girlfriend, because she would miss their son too much during their time apart. Ryan graciously and thanklessly complied. I wonder if Ryan goes to Maci’s apartment to hang out with her and her boyfriend, because he misses his son? And furthermore, this isn’t the first time she’s tried to crash Ryan’s family time. Remember the infamous birthday blowout, which she predictably blamed on Ryan? The entire episode is below. Watch and enjoy.

Vintage Clip — When Harry Met Sally

Written by , Posted in General

I’m still heartbroken over Nora Ephron’s death, and I’m therefore posting one of my favorite love soliloquies in movie history. It makes sense that it’s written by a woman, and it’s a style only Nora could properly illustrate. Ephron once said that the character “most like her” is Sally. Ephron called herself “optimistic” and said she “makes waiters unhappy.”

Jenny McCarthy Covers Playboy — Looks Stunning!

Written by , Posted in General

Since Jenny McCarthy is so aware of her strengths, perhaps she can petition MTV to bring back “Singled Out.” Aside from ‘Temptation Island,’ that was the best dating show on television. This is her sixth cover of Playboy, and she looks incredible. In fact, this might be my favorite cover, since she actually looks as if she’s a healthy weight. I hear she brings back the eighties in her photo-shoot. Let’s hope it sets a trend, because it would certainly reduce my monthly grooming bill by a significant amount.

Goodbye, Nora Ephron — You Will Be Missed

Written by , Posted in General

Goodbye, Nora Ephron. You were a pioneer for women in this industry, and your words will live on forever. Take some time to watch below for one of the greatest scenes in movie history, written by Ephron. Director Rob Reiner once said that Meg Ryan’s character was based largely on elements of Ephron’s own personality.

Update: Ariana Huffington also wrote a beautiful tribute to Ephron, who was her personal friend — Read it here.

Quote of the Day — The Washington Post Hates Maroon 5’s New Album

Written by , Posted in General

“Overexposed is a hit-seeking missile that doesn’t just slaughter Maroon 5’s reputation for sincerity (which was pretty nonexistent anyway), it festoons its corpse with glitter, hairspray and Hello Kitty stickers. It seems more like a collaboration between Swedish hitmakers and AutoTune than between Levine and members of his band, who apparently exist, but it’s a small price to pay.” An excerpt Allison Stewart’s very cutting and well-written review for The Washington Post on Maroon 5’s new record.
