I have mixed feelings about this. Though I appreciate AnnaLynne McCord’s effort to remove the veil between celebrities and real people, I also don’t think it’s the best idea. It’s one thing to remove airbrushing, it’s another to remove all excess and look ordinary. Sure she’s still beautiful, but there’s a certain mystique celebrities should maintain, and removing that mystique removes star-power.
I feel a special connection with Robert Downey Jr. given our extensive love affair that’s been going on for years in my mind. Watch him on Jay Leno promoting The Avengers, and you too might fall in love. Hands-off though — he’s exclusive to The Dishmaster’s fantasy-man list.
“You know, [my husband] Joel [Madden] barely speaks all day, and then out of nowhere he has 9 million things to say, only for 30 minutes, from 9:00 to 9:30 P.M., when I’m watching Real Housewives.” Nicole Richie, on her husband’s very annoying habit of interrupting her reality-television-time.
The only difference between N Sync’s “Girlfriend” video and Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” video is that N Sync’s title doesn’t make the entire band sound like homosexuals. And also — if I had sex with the members of N Sync at the time of their video, I wouldn’t feel like I’d go to jail for child molestation. Watch the strikingly similar videos below.
When I think of Anderson Cooper, the word “bad-ass” comes to mind. He’s not only a nice guy with a sharp newsman take, he’s also witty and unafraid to take-on criticism. In response to Rush Limbaugh’s predictably ridiculous rant about Anderson Cooper’s exercise routine taking away from his CNN duties, Cooper suggested that Limbaugh “try the gym from time to time.” He also gave him advice about how to get his work done simultaneously. Watch below.
If you’re wondering about Steve Jones’ post X Factor career, wonder no more. He’s interviewing celebrities on ET Online and violating every rule in the PR handbook. If you’re going to circumvent a publicist’s request not to talk about a celebrity’s personal life, at least be funny about it. But since Jones’ has the personality of a throw towel, he awkwardly transitioned the conversation from discussing Sharper Image gadgets by saying, “You know what gadget every man wants? A baby.” Watch the debacle below.
There’s a lot of controversy about Ashton Kutcher’s decision to wear “brown-face” during his Popchips commercial, with everyone in the media calling the choice “racist.” Though The Dishmaster loves to point fingers when finger-pointing is due, I’m passing on this one. I think the guy made a poor choice, and he’s paying for it. It’s certainly wrong, but to quote Anil Dash, “I think the people behind this Popchips ad are not racist. I think they just made a racist ad, because they’re so steeped in our culture’s racism that they didn’t even realize they were doing it.”
One thing I love about Gabourey Sidibe is that she’s unafraid to discuss her weight. She’s also unafraid to expose other celebrities for their bad behavior. Today’s celebrity in question is Joan Cusack, who Sidibe talked about on Watch What Happens Live, when host Andy Cohen asked her what celebrity she was most “disappointed by.” Sidibe said she met Cusack at an industry party before she shot to fame, and Cusack advised her to quit the business, calling it too “image conscious.” Oops.
