Dancing With the Stars Reveals Season 10 Cast–>I am Disappointed

Written by , Posted in General

Here is the lineup for Season 10: Pamela Anderson; Kate Gosselin ; Shannon Doherty; Nicole Scherzinger; Erin Andrews; Niecy Nash; Evan Lysacek; Aiden Turner; Jake Pavelka; Chad Ochocinco; and Buzz Aldrin.  This lineup makes me mad.  First of all, this show was originally supposed to be about putting has-beens or relatively unknowns back into the spotlight.  It is not supposed to be about putting people into an even greater spotlight than they are already in.  Evan Lysacek just won a gold medal for goodness sakes!  If you want a gold medalist, choose Greg Louganis, who is a diving legend and was vying for the spot.  Nicole Scherzinger!?  Where are the has-beens!?  Okay fine – Shannon Doherty and Pamela Anderson make me happy.

Jan Brady Doesn’t Appreciate Marcia Calling her a Lesbian

Written by , Posted in General

A ‘Brady Bunch’ reunion was planned on a morning show Wednesday, and it was nixed because Maureen McCormick and Eve Plumb don’t get along.  The problems started when McCormick released her auto-biography, and she hinted at a lesbian relationship with Plumb.  Plumb felt it was a desperate ploy to sell books and did not appreciate it.  According to Radaronline, they never really liked each other.  Regarding the feud, Susan Olsen/’Cindy’ said, “I love them both and this means whenever we get together for any project there will only be one or the other.”

Paris Hilton Ad Pulled in Brazil

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Paris Hilton’s beer commercial in Brazil has created quite the firestorm.  Apparently Americans are not the only prude ones.  Remember the outrage in America over her Carl’s Jr. commercial?  I’m not sure what all the fuss is about.  I posted the ad below so you can see for yourself.  I also posted the Carl’s Jr. ad just to confirm that Paris Hilton is very good at selling sex . . . oops I mean selling beer and burgers.

Shutter Island is Number One Again!!

Written by , Posted in General

This is music to my ears.  The fact that Scorsese is able to stay relevant after all these years amidst the insane ageism in Hollywood, makes me very happy.  This is Shutter Island’s second week at number one, with a total gross of over 75 million dollars.  It is also the most successful film opening for both Scorsese and DiCaprio.  They make quite the team.

The 27th Annual PaleyFest

Written by , Posted in General

The William S. Paley Television Festival is held every year to celebrate all things television.  The Paley Center for Media was founded in 1975, and was formerly known as the Museum of Television and Radio.  At the festival, new shows and old shows are honored, and after episodes of each show are played, there is a panel discussion with the cast and creators. Some of the shows honored this year included ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ ‘Lost,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Dexter,’ and ‘Modern Family.’  One thing of note at this year’s festival was some Lost spoilers.  See some pics from the festival below.

Karina Smirnoff Cut from Dancing With the Stars

Written by , Posted in General

Looks like Karina Smirnoff is joining Lacey Schwimmer and Johnathan Roberts as a casualty of Dancing With the Stars.  She will not be returning for the upcoming season.  Does this have anything to do with her breakup with Maksim Chmerkovskiy?  Maybe the show felt that having both of them on would be too awkward.  Maybe she was the one that wanted off the show.  I just think they are cutting professional dancers this season that they felt didn’t carry a big enough personality.  Who knows.

Forest Whitaker is Pissed at the Weinsteins

Written by , Posted in General

Forest Whitaker’s new film, ‘Hurricane Season,’ has gone direct to video, and he is calling it a “travesty.”  He obviously expected a theatrical release, given that there were many big names in the film, and Whitaker thinks it has a great story.  The Weinsteins’ claim that the film didn’t test well, but something tells me this really has to do with the Weinstein Co.’s financial problems.

Matt Damon Says a New Bourne Movie Unlikely

Written by , Posted in General

At the premiere of his new film, ‘Green Zone’ Paul Greengrass said that he is unlikely to direct a new Bourne film, as he has nothing else to contribute to the franchise.  Greengrass directed both ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘Green Zone,’ and Damon has said that he would not do another Bourne film without him.  This would not be the first time that rumors of a sequel have been squashed.  After ‘The Bourne Supremacy,’ Damon said that ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ would not work, because the original novel was too dated.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this is just Damon and Greengrass gratuitously babbling to the press.  See pictures from the ‘Green Zone’ premiere below.

Billy Joel Drops Out of Tour with Elton John

Written by , Posted in General

Billy Joel has dropped out of his tour with Elton John. The tour was supposed to run until March 11, but Joel has left early, claiming that he wants to take the year off. Because of its success, it was speculated that Joel and John would extend it beyond March 11, but now that won’t happen. Thus far, it has already grossed around 88 million dollars. John said that although he is disappointed, he understands Joel’s decision. Prior to this tour, the last time Joel and John toured together was 2003. Hopefully they will tour again in the near future.

Conan O’Brien’s Twitter Account

Written by , Posted in General

I usually don’t care about twitter but I will make an exception for this. Conan O’Brien just started a twitter account. It’s been about a day, and he already has around 350,000 followers. Go CoCo!! Here are his two tweets so far:

“Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me”

“This morning I watched Remington Steele while eating Sugar Smacks out of a salad bowl. I was naked.
