The Bachelorette’s Dream Date With JP Rosenbaum

Written by , Posted in General

Most of the time, I love being single. I love going out every night and not having to answer to anyone at the end of my day. Having said that, there are a few choice moments when I miss having a relationship. First, when I have to squash a bug. I need a man for that. Second, when I need my tire changed. And third, when I watch ‘The Bachelorette’ and see Ashley Hebert on my dream date. Watch below.

Quote of the Day — Beyonce

Written by , Posted in General

“There is room on this earth for many queens . . . I have an authentic, God-given talent, drive, and longevity that will always separate me from everyone else. I’ve been fortunate to accomplish things that the younger generation of queens dream of accomplishing. I have no desire for anyone else’s throne. I am very comfortable in the throne I’ve been building for the past 15 years.” Beyonce’s best attempt at humility

Lady Gaga Sings ‘Edge of Glory’ on Howard Stern — Magical

Written by , Posted in General

I have to admit that I’m not a Lady Gaga fan. I find her to be indulgent and inauthentic. Plus, I don’t love her music. Having said that, her performance of ‘Edge of Glory’ on Howard Stern blew me away. Dave Grohl once said that his acoustic performance of ‘Everlong’ on Howard Stern put Foo Fighters on the map, and I have a feeling Gaga will join Grohl in the Howard Stern history books. Listen below.

Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout & Ryan Edwards — Still in Love

Written by , Posted in General

Perhaps I have a skewed view of relationships, but here’s what I know for sure: If you don’t fight — you don’t love. So if you ever meet one of those annoying couples that proclaim to “never argue,” then give them that message. One such person in need of that advice is Teen Mom’s Maci Bookout, who left her baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, and is now in a new, no-drama relationship with Kyle King. The only problem? — Maci and Ryan are still madly in love with one another and they are too dense to notice. Watch the clip below to see what I mean.

Jennifer Lopez & Mark Anthony Divorce — The Way They Were

Written by , Posted in General

The tragedy of a celebrity breakup is that there’s an internet time capsule with interviews of happier times. Let this be a lesson to famous couples everywhere — don’t publicly declare your love — you might pay for it later. Speaking of paying for it, I’m posting a video of Jennifer Lopez and Mark Anthony’s performance on American Idol, to show that Jennifer Lopez has a very nice ass, and these two might have actually liked each other at one point in time. Actually — they look like two titans competing for stage time. Perhaps that’s the lesson. Don’t marry someone of the same celebrity stature. No one wants to share a spotlight.

Movie Review: Larry Crowne

Written by , Posted in General

Not even Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks can rescue a bad script.  I’m surprised their agents even signed off on this mess.  Actually, they didn’t sign off on it — Tom Hanks wrote and produced it, which explains how it hit the big screen.  Actors often become too big for their own good, and there’s no one willing to break unfortunate truths to them.  So here’s the truth — the movie is terrible. Tom Hanks plays Larry Crowne, a navy veteran who gets laid off from his retail job because of his lack of education. He decides to go back to school, where he takes a speech class with Mrs. Tainot, played by Julia Roberts.  It’s unclear what Larry Crowne hopes to learn from Mrs. Tainot, given that she’s an extremely unlikable professor who’s miserable with both her personal and professional life.  The problem with this film is that the characters have nothing to offer.  Crowne is misguided, and he seems to have no particular skill of note.  If he served in the Navy as a cook, then why isn’t he running a restaurant?  Furthermore, why would Tainot ever be interested in him or vice versa? She’s a terrible teacher with a crummy attitude, and he’s a bit of a loser.  In fact, I wasn’t even sure these two even liked one another until they started kissing, which was so confusing and random, I found myself rolling my eyes. I presume the original intention of the script was to have two lost souls fall in love and help one another move forward with their lives — but that’s not what came across. Instead, it was two lost souls that felt like making out once or twice.  OVERALL RATING: DISHASTER

Alexis Stodden & Doug Hutchison’s First Interview — Still Gross

Written by , Posted in General

Remember that story about the 51 year old actor who married the 16 year old? Well, they interviewed with Good Morning America to “set the record straight,” and I’m pretty sure the “record” now confirms how gross these two are. Sure it’s possible for love to exist amongst such a vast age difference, but it’s also extremely unlikely. And judging by the interview below, these two don’t fall into one of those rare exceptions. The most entertaining part was when Alexis claimed to be a virgin upon meeting him, which is hard to believe considering she almost licked Doug’s face during the interview. Did I mention her misplaced and uncomfortable laughter? I assure you — her husband is not a funny guy. In fact — disturbing is a better word.

Don Jeanes Interview — Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Written by , Posted in Celebrity Interviews, General

When I saw the first trailer for ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ I thought, “I wonder if that guy in the space-suit is hot?” Then I landed an interview with him and as it turns out — he is hot. There are days when being a blogger really pays off. Actually, I prefer to call myself an “online journalist,” but that’s neither here nor there. The hot guy in question is Don Jeanes, and he plays Neil Armstrong in one of the biggest blockbuster films in history. Jeanes grew up on a ranch in Texas, and he later moved to New York to pursue acting. After a few years in New York, he moved to Los Angeles, where, needless to say, he’s doing quite well for himself. Read my interview with the yummy actor below.

 

I think every kid fantasizes about being an astronaut. What was it like wearing the space suit?

It was really cool. Our costumes were inspired by the designs of actual NASA space suits. I couldn’t help but feel a little heroic just trying it on at the fitting. I will say though that once you put on the glass helmet it gets a little claustrophobic.

The 1984 animated Transformers film was Orson Wells’ last movie. Were you intimidated by the history of the Transformers franchise?

Yes and no. As an actor I was intimidated to play one of America’s most beloved heroes in front of such a large audience but not of the Transformers franchise; in that aspect it was an honor.

As a kid, I loved the transformers cartoon and used to watch it every morning before school. I went to see both ‘Transformers’ and ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ in the theater. I remember sitting there after ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ envisioning myself being a part of such an action thriller film.

Shia Labeouf has described Michael Bay as having an “aggressive personality.” What was your experience working with him?

From my personal experiences on set, I would say that Mr. Bay is straightforward when he is directing. I found him to be as personable as a man can be considering the millions of dollars invested in the film while orchestrating hundreds of people on set everyday. I was intrigued by his hands-on approach for each scene and his interactions with all of the actors and crew members. It was great knowing that I could have an open line of communication.

You’re starring in the Los Angeles play, ‘Jesus Hopped the “A” Train,’ this summer. I know your career began in New York. Do you favor theater or film?

That’s a hard question to answer. I really enjoy working in both mediums because they allow me to work as an actor and perform in different ways. A linear performance in front of a live audience on stage is what I love. On the other hand, I also love film because it reaches a broader audience in which I can impact more people.

I read in an interview that your cousin is a rodeo clown. For some reason I think his career might be just as entertaining as a Hollywood film. Any chance you might have stayed in Texas and gone that route?

(Laughs) Yes, there’s a slight chance that would have happened. I started riding bulls when I was fifteen with my older brother. We had only been riding for a short while when he broke his collarbone. I must admit, as a young kid, that scared me a little given that I could no longer get to the rodeos because I couldn’t even drive yet. I think if that accident hadn’t happen I might still be “Spurrin and Pickin Apples” in Texas today.

Tell the truth. Do you have a Megatron figurine from your childhood that you fight in your spare time?

(Laughs) No, but I do have a “Sonar” figurine that was given to me for my last birthday.

Did you get to steal anything from the set?

(Laughs) Does a pair of socks count? I drove my motorcycle to the set every day and one morning it was raining. My feet ended up being soaked. I ended up getting a pair from the costume department and they have been a memento ever since!
