When Miley Cyrus surfaced on the beach smooching Foray co-founder/Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter, most people thought it was fake, including The Hills star/Tommy Lee’s and Pamela Anderson’s son, Brandon Lee. Personally, I thought it was more disrespectful than fake. In fact, it’s just as disrespectful as Brody’s recent rendezvous with Josie Canseco, but because society is way harder on women, Brody’s actions seemed to get a pass. He rightfully came to his ex-“wife’s”defense, but the damage is done.
Here’s my issue. Why is it “fake” when two women kiss on the heels of a divorce, but it’s “scandalous” when a woman and a man run off together? Is a lesbian love affair less believable? Though men might not place the same weight on girl/girl infidelity, it’s just as tacky to rub your new relationship in your ex’s face, regardless of the gender. I have zero idea about the timeline here, so I can only go by their announcement. But judging by Liam Hemsworth’s reaction, he’s still grieving the loss of his marriage – which makes this worse.
It’s no secret I’ve been riding the Taylor Swift hate train for quite some time, but that doesn’t make me a “hater.” I’m just simply a longtime fan gone rogue after a series of unforgivable missteps. Aside from the usual complaints about her whoa-is-me/I’m-a-victim behavior, she’s released a new tune entitled “Lover” and it’s so clearly a rip-off off of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” my head might explode. Will she receive legal push-back? Probably not. To quote my friend, “It’s close, but it’s not close enough.” Listen below and judge for yourself.
It’s hard to believe the ladies of RHOBH think the show can survive sans Lisa Vanderpump, especially given that 80% of the season was about Lisa Vanderpump — even AFTER she quit the reality series. Fans of LVP have been quick to point out the leading ladies are hypocrities for attacking the WEHO Queen, a tactic used to deflect attention from their own personal lives — specifically the multi-million dollar lawsuits they’re facing. Those lawsuits are against the husbands of Erika Jayne, Kyle Richards, and Dorit Kemsley.
On last night’s reunion, Andy Cohen served the tea, and rightfully brought those lawsuits to light. The ladies conveniently all agred they should be kept private, with Kyle Richards leading the charge. Kyle insisted that the husbands are not fair game for the show, which is an interesting assertion given that Kyle uses the show to promote her husband’s business. In fact, she threw a party for his company ON THE SHOW. Furthermore, Kyle has consistenly brought up the actions of LVP’s husband, Ken Todd.
The lawsuits are fair game. If you sign up for a reality show, then that show should reflect the reality of your life. At the very least, you could use it to deny the accusations against you, instead of completely ignoring a monstrous life event. And besides, even if LVP leaked that story — who actually cares?
If you ever wondered whether Brody Jenner takes after his father, just watch the clip below for a taste of his temper, lack of empathy, and desire to completely ignore what’s directly in front of him. The Hills: New Beginnings is back and better than ever, and this time around Heidi and Spencer seem like the only solid couple on the show. And without Lauren Conrad’s holier than thou narration, it’s just good, old-fashioned drama. Enjoy the clip, and try to tune out Justin Bobby’s horrific music.
I don’t usually side with Bethenny Frankel, but after watching the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, she’s officially my favorite cast member of the franchise. For those that don’t watch the show, Luann de Lesseps has let her newly successful cabaret show go to her head, and her friends/co-stars are fed up with her unbearable narcissim.
In the clip below, you’ll see Bethenny finally say what everyone else is thinking. According to Bethenny, Luann never checked in after Bethenny’s then boyfriend died of a drug overdose, which is especially awful given that Bethenny put her life on pause to help Luann get sober.
Taylor Swift has reached that sweet spot in her career where she can pretty much do no wrong with her fans, as evidenced by the unconditionally positive response to her newly released single, “You Need to Calm Down.” It certainly helps that it’s an anthem against anti-gay bullies. While I support GLAAD, I don’t support the song. Why? Because it simply isn’t good. The melody is nearly as terrible as “ME!.” I realize the irony in expressing distaste for a song that’s all about being kind in the form of “calming down.” Just know that I’m perfectly calm. Also know that the song is subpar. As an aside, it seems as if Swift has made a conscious choice to veer away from singing about her personal life. Since her entire career was based on publicizing her personal life, I imagine it’s going to take some time to find other inspiration besides social media trolls and celebrity “snakes.”
Impressions are a dime a dozen these days, but accuracy is far less impressive than originality, and Dana Carvey has both. The former Saturday Night Live star is a frequent Howard Stern guest, and Stern’s team created this genius compilation video of all of Carvey’s spot-on impressions during their interview. It’s not just how he does it, it’s the material surrounding it. Watch below to see him in action.
If you believe Chelsea Handler, she’s had some sort of spiritual awakening, and that specific awakening is documented in her new book, Life Will Be the Death of Me. She credits her healthier perspective to intense therapy, and her book goes into detail about her painful childhood and the grief surrounding the loss of her brother.
Though I appreciate authenticity in any form, Handler’s recent book tour seems more about drug use than book promotion. In fact, she’s gearing up to launch a marijuana company, and she’s happy to help any and everyone who’s in need of advice about “microdosing” harder drugs. I had never heard the term microdosing prior to Handler, but I’m now aware, whether I like it or not.
It’s worth noting that marijuana is not technically legal in any state. If you want to argue that with me, google the Supremacy Clause. Additionally, if Handler was encouraging wine use to cope with life, I’d be equally outraged. Therapy is an excellent tool to better one’s life, but if you find yourself talking more about drugs than therapy, perhaps you missed the message. It’s important to note that I support prescription medication as a tool to combat depression, but Handler is not a doctor, and her loose drug endorsement is dangerous.
I have zero inside intel on Julianna Margulies, but she left a bad taste in my mouth during her stint on The Good Wife when she filmed her final scene with Archie Panjabi via green screen because their relationship had apparently grown so contentious they could not be in the same room with one another. As for Archie, she insisted she was ready and willing to film, which suggests the camera trick was at Margulies’ request.
