Brandi Glanville Leaves Real Housewives: End of a Very Crass Era

Written by , Posted in General

 There’s a rule on Real Housewives: You can’t be hated by everyone at the same time, or you’ll get the axe, and Brandi Glanville broke it. Allies will earn you favor, but not when your only ally is Kim Richards who also earned her walking papers. I actually feel bad for Brandi, but she played every card imaginable to land a job in LA LA Land, and she had a damn good run of it. Hats off to the girl that makes lemonade out of some seriously unfaithful lemons. Like her or not, I applaud such a turnaround, especially when you somehow manage to become more famous than that famous chick that stole your husband. In a sweet sendoff, I’d like to say goodbye to Brandi Glanville’s RHOBH’s run with her greatest moment in history. Watch below.

Hilary Duff Releases Acoustic “Tattoo” Video: Watch Now

Written by , Posted in General

 I should preface this post by professing my unlikely obsession with Hilary Duff, whose cheesy movies were the perfect end-of-day unwind during my formative adolescent years, along with a girl-crush admiration for her bangin’ bod, that is just curvy enough for my liking. As for her public image, she has yet to find her post-teen niche, which might soon change with her new music. Duff release an acoustic rendition of “Tattoo,” which about getting burned and not feeling appreciated in a relationship, and the marks you get left with at the end,” according to her conversation with Vulture. Th song is good, her voice is good, and I enjoy the pared-back approach. Watch below.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Impersonates His Wax Figure: Scares Fans

Written by , Posted in General

In one of the best social media moves in history, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonated a wax figure impersonation of himself (yes, that’s confusing) and visitors of at Hollywood’s Madame Tussauds gallery. Donning his famous Terminator gear, Arnold also hit the streets of Hollywood, which resulted in a very funny conversation with another impersonator outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Check Terminator: Genisys when it arrives in theaters July 1. Watch below to see his prank in action.

Madonna’s New Video is a MESS: Watch Now

Written by , Posted in General

Close your eyes and remember every horrible party in your youth, then imagine what’s it’s like to revisit those parties years later with a new group of sad people that are way too old to be there. That my friends . . . is Madonna’s new video. I realize there’s an obvious response here about my ageism, but after watching this monstrosity I’d say the same thing about anyone past the age of eighteen engaging in this nightmare. Madonna is far too cool for this crap. On top of that, she doesn’t need help from her younger peers or celebrity friends. She’s fu*king Madonna, and she can go it alone. Leave out Nicki Minaj (though she’s the only saving grace), ditch Miley Cyrus, and let Chris Rock spend this lost time preparing his new comedy tour. There’s just nothing creative coming from a woman whose entire career was predicated on creativity. And can’t she dance? Is there any ounce of choreography? Watch this mess below.

Editor’s Note: I actually LOVE her new album. So don’t accuse me of bias.

Jerry Seinfeld Dodges the Seth Meyers Pre-Interview

Written by , Posted in General

Inside sources tell me that Jerry Seinfeld is a notorious curmudgeon with many demands and endless complaints. That revelation is not surprising given his interview with Seth Meyers below, where Seinfeld breaks the fourth wall on late-night television’s canned, cheesy style. To be fair, the spotlight seems exhausting, and the talk-show circuit is a five minute pressure cooker demanding a lot of jokes in a very short exchange. But when an A-lister like Seinfeld grants the courtesy of his appearance, it makes sense to assume he’d bypass the annoying pre-interview that just adds to his time. To quote Seinfeld, “you want me here, I don’t want to be here. So YOU engage ME.” Watch below.

The Rachel Dolezal Story: How Big News Steals Small News

Written by , Posted in General

Lost in the Rachel Dolezal story is the name of the original reporter that started the national craze about her race. Dolezal, the NAACP’s local chapter President, has long identified as black, when she in fact . . . white. The story surfaced when KXLY4’s Jeff Humphrey (an affiliate of CNN) asked her some tough questions, and she fled the interview. Humphrey was strategic in his inquiry, engaging in a long interview before exposing his true agenda, and carefully asking her race without appearing as a bully. “Ma’am, I was wondering if your dad really is an African-American man,” Humphrey asked.

Since that now well-known exchange, Humphrey been referred to as a “reporter,” with very few mentions of his actual name. In fact, The Today Show was celebrated for landing the first interview since that exchange, and all the credit thus went to an entity that did none of the work. It’s easy to get paid a $20 million dollar salary to suss out details of a story someone else uncovered, especially when that someone garnered the original facts. But if you’re going to capitalize on the work of others, give them credit and say their name.

Kim Kardashian Misspells Giorgio Armani’s Name: Brand Responds​

Written by , Posted in General

  When you’re Kim Kardashian, the Twitter Gods can grant you just about anything, including discontinued foundation courtesy of Giorgio Armani, along with a stern schooling on how to spell the iconic designer’s name. Though it’s obviously an innocent mistake that could be made by just about anyone, everyone knows about Armani’s attention to detail, so the idea that he’d take some special time to correct a Kardashian gives me sweet satisfaction. Also, now that she’s making a spirited attempt at high-end fashion, there’s an extra special bow on top of this mistake. The brand has since deleted the tweet, presumably because they don’t want this type of attention. My advice? This is the exact type of attention they should want.

Rachel Dolezal breaks her silence on ‘The Today Show’ – Watch Now

Written by , Posted in General

  It’s fine to self-identify as a different race or religion from that which you were born. If a man born as a woman changes his gender identity, it would be politically and morally insensitive to deny his new gender. So why not accept a white person who identifies as black? After all, being a minority comes with its own set of struggles, and the more the merrier right? We’re all going to be one race eventually, so who cares?

While Rachel Dolezal and her supporters (see Whoopi Goldberg’s argument below) might present that argument, it has some serious holes. First, Dolezal’s claims of identifying as black at the age of five by “drawing self-portraits with a brown crayon” don’t hold up since she sued Howard University alleging that she was discriminated against for being white. To Matt Lauer’s point in her interview on The Today Show, she’s identifying with whatever race suits her needs in the moment, rather than authentically self-identifying with a different race. Furthermore, no one likes a liar, and it appears as if she deliberately twisted the truth to perpetuate the public’s ideas. For example, she claims that a black man named Alfred Wilkinson is her father, justifying the lie by implying he’s been more of a father to her than her own parents. Wilkinson has removed himself from the drama by hanging up the phone on reporters, and there’s no evidence to suggest he raised her as his daughter in any capacity. Furthermore, there are legitimate questions about Dolezal’s claims regarding alleged hate mail she received, adding to the many questions surrounding her web of lies.

This is less about race and more about truth. The public will pounce on lies, with an eager effort to hold people accountable. Had she been honest about her life, perhaps she’d have been embraced. Now she just looks like a standard, “crazy white lady” in need of a serious mental health intervention. Watch her interview The Today Show and see Whoopi Goldberg’s take below.

Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals in Prison: Watch Clips

Written by , Posted in General

  Until now, I’ve viewed Jeff Ross as a one-trick-Roast-pony. Sure he can hit Hollywood’s top dogs, but is he creative? Can he think outside his box of tricks and do something original? The answer to that question is yes. Ross crafted the original idea of roasting felons at a prison, and he found only one jail that would consent. According to Ross, it took a full year of behind-the-scenes production to pull this off, and his angst, though obviously elevated, waned once the roast began. Only those on good behavior got ot attend the roast. Watch clips below.
