Man, it really sucks spending four days in Vegas then returning back to reality. I almost feel like I’m in an alternate reality when I’m out there. Like at some point, Dr. Jack and Locke are going to appear at the Venetian and talk to me about getting back home at some point. It’s amazing how much I tune out pretty much everything else going on in the world when I’m in Vegas. Outside of what was happening in the sports world, I pretty much missed anything and everything that happened this weekend. Kinda hard to concentrate on Syria when you’re poolside at the Venetian checking out the scenery, isn’t it? Whatever the case, I’m back, and now have to somehow start transforming into “Bachelor” mode as filming begins in roughly a week. The girls start arriving in LA this Saturday, which means filming will begin next Monday or Tuesday.
Tomorrow I will post 5 of Juan Pablo’s girls for you that I know have been accepted on the show. Still a chance that they might get cut since they always bring extra women out there in case of an emergency or whatever, but I won’t know that until after filming begins. Some of you may ask “Well, do you think that some of them might not make the cut because you’re releasing them before they even leave?” The answer is no. If the producers want you bad enough for their “storyline” for the show you will be on the show, no matter if I confirm you as a contestant early or not. Look no further than last season. If you go back to the “Desiree’s Guys” link, you’ll see that three of the first four guys I confirmed for her season were Brooks, Chris, and Zak – all of which I confirmed before they left for filming and all of whom ended up making the final four. So no, whether I post them early or not doesn’t seem to matter. If they want you bad enough, nothing I do will ruin anyone’s chances. So look for those 5 girls tomorrow.
-Gia’s mom will appear on the season premiere of “Dr. Phil” this afternoon. If you haven’t seen the promo clip, here it is:
Last week I questioned Jake’s appearance on the show, and then come to see that 2 weeks before Gia’s death, he did an interview with Radar Online, where he was specifically asked who he kept in touch with from the franchise. He never mentioned Gia’s name. Now he’s claiming he always loved her. Interesting.
-Juan Pablo is out in LA prepping for his season to begin filming next week, but over the last month, he’s been in Florida out and about shooting scenes that will most likely be appearing in his intro package. Like this one at the Marlins game a few weeks ago.
-Pretty funny to hear Jillian admit now that basically she forced herself to stay together with Ed when it was obvious the relationship wasn’t working. I’m sure this is a sentiment most other couples feel the pressure of but don’t’ want to admit until long after the fact.
-Your first three hosts of the new “Saturday Night Live” season have been announced. Miley is going to be host and musical guest for the second episode of the season. Y’all, this is Miley’s world now. We’re just lucky to live in it.
-Speaking of Miley, I’m sure you caught her new video that debuted yesterday, right? Naked, wrecking ball, licking a chain. Go!
If that wasn’t enough for you, just know that it set a new record yesterday for most YouTube views in one day than any video ever made.
-Wait a second, you’re telling me porn stars pass diseases on to each other? I don’t believe you.
-Remember that “Catfish” episode a couple weeks back with that really weird guy Justin that almost seemed to fake to be real? Well yeah, it was fake. They just didn’t know. Catfish got Catfished.
-I have no idea who Jesse James’ new wife is, but I’ll just assume he’ll cheat on her like he did on Sandra Bullock and Kat Von D.
-So I’ve told you I’ll basically link to any story involving Miley or Farrah Abraham. We can add another name to that list – Courtney Stodden. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.
-I’m always interested to hear about who sleeps around with who in Hollywood, even though none of it ever surprises me. However, this was one Hollywood hook up I don’t need a visual of. Blech.
-You know that twerking video of the girl who set herself on fire that everyone you know was posting on Facebook as the funniest thing ever? It was staged. By Jimmy Kimmel. He’s becoming the king of viral videos.
-This might be the story that I got most excited about over the weekend. Two words: chipped tooth.
-Yesterday Leah Remini informed us that since she left Scientology, she’s lost some friends. Xenu is definitely not happy with her right now. Or whoever their leader is. If she breaks her leg during DWTS, then you know the Scientology gods are punishing her.
-Maybe not as scandalous as some other reality shows, but this is the kind of stuff I’m interested in. America’s Got Talent now has a behind-the-scenes book available to read. I’m pretty sure I’ll be purchasing this one.
-So was he freaked out or just playing a prank? Eminem’s performance Saturday night in the booth during the Michigan/Notre Dame game was, well, interesting. His people are saying he was just playing the character in his video “Berzerk.” Or maybe he’s just crazy.
-Man, if “Couples Therapy” doctor Jenn Berman is even getting a divorce, what hope is there for the rest of us?
-Our sports story for the weekend has a 7-year old kid taunting fans at the Jets game on Sunday. Gee, you think this kid is much of a trouble maker at school?
