Bethenny Frankel co-hosted ‘The View’ today, and the producers might want to consider giving her a permanent spot. She seemed to be the only normal person on the panel, often stating the obvious points that the other yentas consistently miss. Watch her very funny conversation with Laura Ingraham about the competition for baby tutors.
If you read my blog then you’re well aware of my celebrity crushes. One such crush is Dave Grohl. And to think I’m not even a Foo Fighters fan. He’s a rock star that doesn’t do drugs, he has all his hair, and he’s a great interview. Plus, he’s a bad-ass. Watch the heavily bleeped clip below to understand what I mean. Grohl stopped his concert to yell at a fan in the audience who he spotted fighting. Did I mention that Dave Grohl is hot?
When I sent my friend the video below, he said, “Why are you wasting my time with animated musical renditions of your life story?” He could not be more correct. Cartoon Network rebooted ‘The Looney Toons Show,’ and the very funny Kristen Wiig provides the voice of Bugs Bunny’s lady friend, Lola Bunny. Let’s just say that Lola Bunny has some boy issues, and she can’t seem to keep the crazy on the inside. If you’ve ever had a crush on a boy, then you’ve certainly had some Lola Bunny in you. Besides, we all know that Bugs secretly loves Lola — he’s just scared of his feelings, right? Click the link to watch the video.
If you ever watch Mtv, then you’re familiar with a gentleman named Chris Tamburello, or “CT.” He’s a notorious bad boy, and his most famous melt-down occurred when he almost killed Adam King and ate him for sport. But since every girl wants a bad-boy with a heart, I’d still marry CT and have beautiful babies with him. The man sure is gorgeous. Sure he has some emotional issues — who doesn’t? Watch his fights below. He looks damn fine when he’s angry.
I know Meryl Streep is a genius, but she still consistently exceeds my expectations. Is that even possible? She’s brilliant, and the trailer for ‘The Iron Lady,’ is no exception. When I first heard about the Margaret Thatcher biopic, I thought, “another one of these?” Then I heard that Meryl Streep was attached and I thought, “now that’s a film I want to see.” I’m told Streep has worked with the same costume designer for years, and for ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ it was Streep’s idea to lose weight for the character. In fact, when the ladies of ‘The View’ asked Streep if the producers suggested she lose weight for the role, Streep said, “they wouldn’t dare!.” Watch the trailer below.
If I were a lesbian, I’d want to marry Ann Curry and adopt lots of babies with her. First, she’s been a news anchor on The Today Show since 1997, and she was consistently passed up for the co-anchor gig. Instead of stomping her feet and quitting, Curry patiently waited, and when Meredith Viera left, NBC finally gave Curry the job. I’m happy for her, and her interview Nadya Suleman solidifies that she’d not only make a great mother to our future adopted children, but she’s also a good interviewer under pressure. Suleman’s eight children literally tore the house down, and one kid actually tripped over the set, and Curry rescued him. Suleman; however, did not seem the slightest bit fazed. Watch the clip below, and notice how the it took 4 staff members to come to the rescue.
If you know me personally, then you’ve probably heard me excessively encourage others to read ‘The Game.’ The book is often pitched as a how-to guide, teaching men how to pick-up women, but it’s much more than that. It’s a book about the psychology of women, and it helps men have the courage to approach women without looking pathetic. I read it on a whim, and I thought I would laugh at its inaccuracy and its misogynistic undertones. But the truth is — it’s dead on accurate. If men want to understand how to get out of their own way when they like a woman, then they should read it, and if women want to understand why they often act like such bitches around nice men — then they should read it too. So you can imagine my happiness when I heard that it’s finally going to be adapted to the big screen. Congratulations, Mr. Strauss. You deserve it.
“Well, Joel Silver came on board the project and said that he has a quote-unquote ‘formula’ for these quote-unquote ‘buddy movies’ and it has to be a white guy and a quote-unquote ‘ethnic guy.’ And they relieved me of duty and basically paid me off, which I was really upset about, you know? I didn’t get a call from Stallone. I was a little upset about that. Maybe they didn’t want anybody on the movie with a bigger dick than him.” Thomas Jane on why he got fired from Sylvestor Stallone’s new movie, ‘Headshot.’
I’ve made it clear time and time again how much I detest every interviewer but Barbara Walters, and Diane Sawyer is no exception. There’s a clip below of her interview with Jaycee Dugard, and needless to say, Sawyer stinks. She doesn’t even ask a question. She instead makes a statement of fact and pauses, forcing an uncomfortable silence with Dugard, who is then awkwardly filling in the conversational gaps with what she thinks Sawyer wants to know. Isn’t there a school you go to as a journalist where they tell you that an interview actually involves asking a question, instead of inserting uncomfortable pauses in a conversation? Can Babs please come out of retirement for the big interviews? I realize they both work at ABC, but there’s no excuse for Walters’ absence on this one.
