Celebrity Gossip – It’s Back!

July 9, 2010

Friends and Comrades, it’s back! The Friday edition of the Celebrity Gossip Round up.

I knew you missed it.

Let’s start with the obvious.

Lindsay Lohan. Remember when she was just that sweet girl from The Parent Trap and Mean Girls? Ugh. Go to jail and never come back, Lindsay. I’m tired of you and I’m even more tired of your family.

The other person I’m tired of?

Mel Gibson. Remember when he was that nice guy from BraveHeart and What Women Want? Well, this woman wants you to disappear from the face of the earth, Mel Gibson. Hitting women and tossing out racial slurs and anti-Semitic nonsense like it’s your job – maybe it is your job. I haven’t seen you in any good movies lately – I hope it stays that way.

Now, on a good note.

Oprah’s ENTIRE SET was made of Godiva chocolate yesterday. Seriously. The set was created from approximately 7,000 Godiva bars and 2,400 Godiva truffles. Seriously.

You can take a tour of the set here. It’s incredible. And seemingly delicious since the audience members were invited to eat it afterwards.

Oh, Oprah. You are a genius. And a woman after my own chocolate-loving heart.

What was your favorite gossip item of the week?

Friday Gossip: I’m back!

May 22, 2010

So, after a brief hiatus, here’s this week’s round up of gossip greatness.

Grey’s Anatomy: To be honest, I haven’t cared about this show in a long time. I usually just catch up with it when I’m bored because I’d rather watch The Office in real time on Thursday nights. However, I saw a preview of this week’s episode of Grey’s and knew it was worth watching. Did you see it? Without giving too much away, I’ll say that it was phenomenal. Over the top? Maybe. But, it felt like one of the best things I’ve seen on TV in awhile (excluding LOST). Drama? Check. Excitement? Check. Sadness? Happiness? Heart palpitations from Sarah #2? CHECK. Even if you don’t watch Grey’s, this episode is worth a look. Though, it may cause you to think you’re dying. So, be careful.

Greyson Chance: Have you seen this kid yet? He’s been everywhere. I mean everywhere. As in first I saw him all over gossip blogs and then I went home and his YouTube video was on World News Tonight. I guess Diane Sawyer digs pop music. Who knew? His version of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” is simply amazing. I should know; I’ve watched it about 50 times – no joke. The Christian Science Monitor thinks the whole thing may be a big farce, but I don”t think I care. This kid deserves to be famous. Heck, he got a record deal already. And he seems adorable and humble. That will probably wear off, but for now he makes me swoon in a non-pedophile way. I want to squeeze his cheeks. (Mom, please learn to  play this song on piano like he does. K? Thanks.)

Harry Potter: No one else probably cares, but The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens at Universal Studios in mere weeks. I, of course, have been stalking its progress as closely as possible. With every article I read, my desire to go there increases, while my coolness correspondingly decreases. I just want to send some owl mail, drink a butterbeer, and visit the castle. It’s like all my dreams are coming true; well, if the wizarding world were located directly next to the lot of General Hospital. Maybe one day. For now, here are some awesome tour videos of the park attractions.

Notice I purposefully didn’t bring up that actress from The Parent Trap / Mean Girls, or the “actress” from The Hills and her insane husband. Not worth it. I’ve only got room for one crazy in my life and her name is Britney ThankYouVeryMuch.

Gossip Round Up – Summer’s Here

May 7, 2010

Beyonce and Jay-Z: Word on the street is that the music moguls are moving just outside Philly. Apparently, they’re looking at a multimillion-dollar manse situated on 210 secluded acres in Schuylkill County. Apparently it’s just a rumor, but let’s be honest, I hope it’s real. I am nothing if not a celebrity stalker. And while I leave Bradley Cooper, M Night Shyamalan, Wanda Sykes, and Tina Fey alone while they’re in town, I probably wouldn’t leave Beyonce alone. I’d probably go to her house and stand outside the gate doing the Single Ladies dance and rapping Big Pimpin’. There’s your warning Beyonce. Hope to see you soon. I’ll be the white girl you kick off your lawn.

David Boreanaz: Did you ever watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Angel? Do you watch Bones? Do you love David Boreanaz? I do. He’s smoking hot and a great actor. And, you know what that means? He’s a cheater. Yup, rumors have long plagued this guy, calling him out for cheating on his equally smoking hot wife (with whom he has 2 kids, including a baby). He admitted that these rumors are true. Of course, he’s sorry and trying to salvage his marriage. Blah blah blah. We’ve heard it all before from every other philandering man in Hollywood which, at this rate, is all of them. You’ve lost me as a fan, David. And I know your father, former longtime Philadelphia weatherman Dave Roberts (ABC6) is probably shaking his head with disbelief. You’re a disappointment, mostly because you’re just like the rest of them. Sigh.

Britney Spears: It’s a good week when there’s something to share about Ms. Spears. I won’t mention what the National Enquirer is reporting about her because there are happier things to talk about. For example, the fact that Britney recorded a demo of Telephone long before Lady Gaga did. I love that. Why? Because Gaga thinks she’s the shit and now her song is just a Britney cast off – the queen of pop’s leftovers. Furthermore, Rolling Stone published an article claiming that Britney’s version of the song is not only better, but also declaring Britney’s Blackout album as the most influential pop album in the past five years. Coming from Rolling Stone, that’s a major statement – and definitely one I can get on board with. So, move over Gaga. Your crazy hairdos, outlandish outfits, and general weirdness have got nothing on Britney. 

It’s been a good week for gossip. Don’t you agree?

Friday Gossip Round Up: The Running Edition

May 1, 2010

This week has been pretty crazy in the world of celebrity gossip. So, let’s just get started. I need to distract myself from the fact that I’m running 10 miles on Sunday with THIRTY THOUSAND people shoved into Philadelphia… in NINETY DEGREE WEATHER. I have a supreme fear of fainting.

Moving on…

Sandra Bullock: I take back when I called her an idiot. I love and adore her. Her eloquence, her focus on her (new) family, and her value system are admirable and courageous. I admire her poise in times of difficulty and I want to be her when I grow up. For one of the most powerful women in Hollywood, her words and deeds are a far cry from those of her peers. Go get People Magazine.

Christina Aguilera: She has some new music out. Good for her. I don’t personally find her music to be all that groundbreaking, but she has an awesome voice and I like to pretend I can sing like her. There’s been a lot of hubbub about  how Christina is “reinventing” herself by taking over Lady Gaga’s persona. I don’t really care either way because, let’s be honest, everyone in pop music is the same. The end. Shut up.

Halle Berry: She and her beautiful boyfriend broke up. They weren’t married; they were going for one of those Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell things and failed. They got a beautiful child out of it, but that’s not surprising since they’re two of the hottest people on the planet. And you know what happens when hot people get together? Someone gets burned. Or, in this case, they both did. Sad.

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to spend my evening hydrating. And unfortunately that’s not a euphemism for drinking adult beverages.

Gossip Round Up – ACM Edition

April 23, 2010

Sunday was the ACM’s (American Country Music Awards). I actually forgot to watch – astonishing, I know, coming from someone who scours the TV Guide at least twice a day. But, it happens.

Don’t worry, I caught up with all the winners/losers, performances, and fashions online. And now, I’ll offer my own person critiques.

imageI’m biased. Carrie Underwood is heaven to me. She’s gorgeous and she sings like a gosh darn angel. I’d pay money to be her. Her fashion is usually sort of, well, awful. But, good work this time, Carrie. And way to win Entertainer of the Year. You deserve it. I should know, I’ve seen you in concert 3 times. I give you a 3.5/5. I hold you to higher standards. Sorry.

imageTaylor Swift. I think your songs are catchy and your lyrics make me feel like a high school girl. I don’t think you can sing any better than me, but  I will admit that you are much prettier than I am. And, you can wear a damn dress. I give you a 4/5. You could have picked a less subtle color.  

imageFaith Hill got old. Tim McGraw is still hot when he keeps his hat on. I think that’s pretty much how it goes for them these days. I give them a 4.5/5 only because it’s nice that they’re happily married (though my college roommate told me once that he propositioned her friend in a bar) and aging with grace. Classy, not trashy.

imageReba is hot. I love her dress and she has a nice body. But, please lay off the botox. Your face doesn’t even look like it belongs to you. Yuck. Minus 2 points for you face – 3/5.

imageJewel, I still am not quite sure that you are a bonafide country musician. I like your music; I sometimes like your fashion. This is a total win. 5/5.

image Miranda Lambert could have picked a more flattering dress for her body type. The color is pretty and her make up is flawless. Plus, I follow her on Twitter and I like how real she is. 4/5, Miranda. Just try to accentuate your hips a little less. You have what are referred to as birthing hips. Keep them on the dl.

Winner’s Circle

imageJennifer Nettles of Sugarland only gets more beautiful and more fashionable with age. Each awards show she is more and more astounding. This was no exception. Girlfriend can work a dress, hard. 5/5.

imageHillary Scott of Lady Antebellum. I don’t know anything about her except for the songs her band sings. But, I now know that she can dress and she can dress well. This dress is flattering and the color is amazing on her. She certainly draws your attention!

Speaking of fashion, have you ever checked out Rent the Runway? Basically it’s a service that makes high fashion affordable. You can browse for a designer dress, pay a small fee, and they’ll deliver it in 2 sizes (just in case). Wear it, flaunt it, then return it in pre-paid packaging. Phenomenal, no?

I’m dying for a good opportunity to try this out. You know, so I can pretend I’m attending the CMA’s. Then you can judge my fashion.

Who do you think was the best dressed? What dress would you choose from Rent the Runway?

Friday Gossip Round Up

April 16, 2010

I forgot last week. Sue me.

Now, onto the gossip.

Glee: Glee returned this week. And you know what? It was AWESOME. I don’t care if you don’t like singing. I don’t care if you don’t like campy, soap opera-esque shows that make fun of themselves. I don’t care. Because I like them. And, I’m fairly certain this show was created solely for me, to provide material for me to sing in my car. So suck it.

Shannen Doherty: Shannen is releasing a book that I assume will be riddled with gossip circa 1990 – the best kind. In case you’re not as “culturally” aware as me, Shannen starred on 90210 for a long time and then left amid gossip about how she’s a biotch. Subsequently, she was on Charmed for a long time and then left amid gossip about how she’s a biotch. I love a good biotch and I love backstage gossip from shows long gone. Don’t worry, I’ll take it upon myself to read it and recap it for you.

Whitney Houston: Once upon a time my sister and I owned a Whitney Houston Barbie. Our Whitney has mismatched shoes, wore slutty outfits, and never brushed her hair. I believe we directly foreshadowed Whitney’s fate. Word on the street is that Whitney’s concert performances haven’t been so great. Whitney, you should have hired Kevin Costner to protect you from the coke. Didn’t consider that, did you? And, maybe you’ll always love me, but I’m over you. Sorry; it’s time to retire.

Britney Spears: I love her. I don’t care if she’s a horrible role model. But, for once, she’s done something awesome. She’s released un-airbrushed photos of herself to be compared with the airbrushed photos. She’s hot no matter what, but it’s nice to know she’s shapely and has blemishes and cellulite. Now, not only do I think she’s a normal person because she’s crazy, I also think she’s normal because she’s physically flawed. Additionally, I still think we can be friends. Either way, good for her, putting the truth out there. Someone should discuss that with Mariah Carey.

Celebrity Round-up

April 3, 2010

I love celebrity gossip. LOVE IT. Therefore, I’m going to try to do a little weekly round-up post each week with some thoughts on current celebrity gossip topics.

Sandra/Jesse: Let me start by saying that I watched The Blind Side this week – phenomenal. I generally hate hype, but this movie was amazing. The caliber and success of the movie only make Sandra Bullock’s current situation (dealing with a douche bag husband), that much more sad. However, I know she leads a busy life, but really? She didn’t have the slightest inkling that this was going on behind her back? He wasn’t a one time cheater, he was an all the time cheater. So, now not only do I feel awful for her, but I’m questioning her intelligence too. Either way, she has my support. I’m just saying – was she really blindsided by this revelation? – (Ha, I also love puns).

Ricky Martin: Ricky’s gay – oh my heavens who would have guessed that the guy who sang “shake your bon bon” is homosexual?! Ricky, everyone already knew. But, kudos to you for coming out and announcing it so eloquently. I sincerely applaud you. Plus, you will always hold a place in my heart for playing Miguel on General Hospital.

Britney Spears: No, nothing particularly exciting happened to her this week. But, I lovelove her. So, here is she wearing cute (fake) glasses that she rocked multiple times during the week.

Celebrity I hate this week: Lindsay Lohan. I mean this with love – go to rehab. You’re a mess and I’m tired of you taking up precious space on blogs with your stupidity and poor choices. Go away.

Those are the most pressing celebrity gossip items I feel compelled to discuss. I hope you enjoyed it. Do you have celebrity situations you want to rant about? Leave a comment!
