Can someone please explain to me why celebrities need to be complete assholes and insult other celebrities? Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill recently said, “I love Jane, honestly I do . . . but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character.” So who put the stick in O’Neill’s ass, and why did he feel the need to gratuitously insult Lynch (who I have on very good authority is one of the nicest women in the business)? Here’s my educated guess: Ryan Murphy (the creator of Glee) recently insulted Modern Family for their portrayal of the gay couple on the show, saying it’s ridiculous that the two men never kiss. Modern Family creators were pissed at Murphy for his statements, though they suspiciously executed a gay kiss shortly thereafter. Perhaps O’Neill wants to keep the war going, and therefore decided to take a dig at Glee? Oh yeah — and Sofia Vargera lost the Emmy to Jane Lynch.
I have a couple of confessions to make before writing this post. First, I tricked you with my title. Jim Parsons’ Letterman interview was taped in May of this year, which is not exactly “vintage,” but I had to think of a clever title to make up for the fact that I missed this great interview when it originally aired. To assuage my embarrassment, I’d like to remind you that celebrities often wear dresses on the red carpet that they call “vintage,” which basically just means it wasn’t hand-made with them in mind. Remember Reese Witherspoon’s “vintage” Chanel dress at the Golden Globes, which was actually worn by Kirsten Dunst the year before? My second confession is that I don’t watch the Big Bang Theory, despite its incredible success. But after watching the interview below, I might have to start. Jim Parsons recently picked up an Emmy for his role on the show, which I’m guessing he seriously deserves. Watch and enjoy!
