Welcome to week five of The Dishmaster’s podcast experiment. Enjoy my take on all things celebrity news, with a particular emphasis on crazy-breastfeeding-lady (that’s at the end). Thanks to all my loyal readers for their support, and if you have any criticism — don’t give it — I only listen to unconditional praise.
“I was in Jerusalem and I was being chased by a bunch of Hasidic Jews, and I ironically that was the closest I’ve been to being killed.” Sacha Baron Cohen tells Howard Stern about his brush with death while filming Borat and the humor in possibly being killed by his own people.
True love is rare. And it unfortunately can have a painful ending. That painful ending was beautifully portrayed in the moving film, ‘The Swell Season,’ which follows the love story of Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard after their Oscar win for their film, ‘Once.’ The movie documents their struggle with their new-found fame, and the slow process of falling out of love. The song below, “I Loved You Wrong,” is about finding your one true love in the next life, because the timing isn’t always right in this one.
After watching Jennifer Lopez’s perform “Dance Again” on American Idol, it became immediately clear that she and Casper Smart are having some very hot sex. It also became clear that he loves her, because he walked up to the front of the stage to fix her hair after she performed, followed by Lopez realizing it and saying, “He’s so cute.” Watch below. They sure are adorable — and she sure is beautiful.
For some reason actors rarely talk about River Phoenix. There’s stories in Hollywood about very famous actors who were good friends with him, such as Johnny Depp, but no one ever mentions it. So I was happy and moved to hear Kiefer Sutherland recount what it was like to work with him on Stand By Me. Watch below.
I learned something new today that I seemed to have overlooked for years. Sacha Baron Cohen is extremely hot. Apparently all those years in ridiculous get-ups clouded my ability to see straight. Watch his appearance on Howard Stern below. It’s one of the first times he’s ever appeared out of character. Did I mention he’s hot? And Jewish? He’s the fu^king holy grail.
Eva Longoria is a bad liar. If there’s anything I know about the entertainment industry, it’s where there’s smoke . . . . Watch her very bad acting skills at work when Letterman asked whether there’s a feud with her co-stars, specifically — Teri Hatcher. And as an aside, keep your carry-on luggage. That has to be the worst gift ever. Watch below.
Howard Stern is at his best when he’s expelling venomous hatred toward his enemies. One notorious enemy is Jay Leno, who Stern’s been bad-mouthing for years. Their bad blood started when Leno stole one of Stern’s staffers and years later, Stern still won’t relent. So when Jimmy Fallon mentioned Leno to Stern, the Stern fans in the audience predictably went nuts, as did Stern. Apparently, Fallon called Stern for advice about interviewing President Obama and then confessed to Stern that he also called Leno. Stern then said, “Jay Leno’s hasn’t done a good interview ever,” and “I never would have answered you if I knew [that].” Watch below.
