Rosie O’Donnell bashed this week’s episode of Glee, and rightfully so. One of her main contentions is with Lauren Zizes, calling her “unlikable,” and questioning whether she can actually sing. I completely agree with Rosie, and since she seems to have a larger following than The Dishmaster, I’m hoping that Ryan Murphy listens up. Lauren’s has become almost cartoonish at this point. First, why would Puck be interested in her? Judging from her current portrayal, she has no redeeming qualities. Also, Puck’s been superficial all along, and there’s no explanation for his about-face, except that he’s gone completely crazy. There’s so many other overweight girls with big voices that would have been better picks for that part.
In response to the outrage over the Glee GQ cover, bad-boy Mark Salling said he thinks it’s “not a big deal,” because “people are starving,” and “there’s more important things to worry about in the world.” Can celebrities stop making this argument when trying to circumvent tabloid criticism? I’m fully capable of focusing on world peace and a slutty GQ cover at the same time. Isn’t it funny how much information my pea-sized-brain can actually handle? How about I focus on those things and stop watching Glee altogether (since that other stuff is so much more important)? The cover was gross and unnecessary. Accept responsibility and move on.
About one month ago, I single-handedly broke the story that Mark Salling had been fired from Glee for recording an album in violation of his contract. Because The Dishmaster is a newly launched blog, my story didn’t get any legs until the new season of Glee began to air, and folks started to notice that Salling was missing in action. They arrived at my blog after Googling his whereabouts, and then other (more known blogs) ripped my story off as though it was their own (are you listening Hollywood Life?). Salling’s camp publicly denied the story, ensuring that he’d be back for episode six. I can only guess that his camp worked it out internally, and he was merely forced to sit on the bench for a few episodes as punishment. I stewed about my story being ripped off (with no credit) for days, and then picked myself up off the floor, and began to read the news again. Today, I stumbled across Salling’s new video, and it finally occurred to me why Ryan Murphy was so pissed at Mark Salling for his album, yet he’s fine with the other cast members releasing their own music. Salling’s album isn’t “Glee-rific” to put it kindly. Listen below, and let me know if you can read between the lines.
Update: The video has been completely removed. Gee, I wonder why.
