Daily Links 10/9

October 9th, 2013 | 8 Comments | Posted in Daily Links

I have bizarre dreams. All the time. Anyone that knows me knows this. Hell, I usually tell them that they appear in my dreams. It’s a common occurrence. You know what last night’s random dream was? That the first two episodes of Juan Pablo’s season aired last night on the USA network, but nobody knew. So I was emailed about it, and somehow got to watch them privately, then 10 minutes after watching them, I was somehow on set watching them film the next episode. I guess this is what happens when spoiling the “Bachelor” becomes your job. You dream weird sh** like this. And trust me, this is certainly not the first “Bachelor” dream I’ve had, nor will it be the last. I’ve lost track at this point how many Bachelor related dreams I’ve had. Whether the dream was about the show, one of the girls, me being in the show, me and Fleiss having an argument at a restaurant where we both had to be restrained – everything and anything you can think of when it comes to this show I’ve probably had a dream about it. This is what my life has become.

-News coming today that former “Bachelorette” contestant Drew Kenney is now dating Chris Harrison’s assistant. Huh? I don’t know what’s more unbelievable: that Drew is dating a female, or that Chris has an assistant.

-This past weekend, Sean & Catherine were in Seattle for their engagement party and WetPaint has exclusive pictures from it. I guess I should start browsing wedding gifts for these two. Doesn’t bother me at all. You figure after 16 consecutive failed “Bachelor” seasons where the lead didn’t end up marrying the girl he chose, the string had to be broken at some point, right? 1-for-17. And I’ll call it early that after this season it’ll be 1-for-18.

-So for months, and even close to a year, we heard about marital problems between Kris and Bruce Jenner, and all they did was say the media has no idea what they’re talking about, things are great, blah blah blah. Well anyone with half a brain knew that was a lie as it finally came to a head yesterday as they announced they are divorcing. Probably a weight lifted off Kris’ shoulders since now she can flirt and email all her ex’s without getting in trouble anymore.

-And considering these two never had a prenup, it should be fascinating to see Kris lose half her fortune. Man, what a heartbreaker that is. Such a kind, caring, woman. You hate seeing things like that happen to such wonderful people.

-Monday night, Julianne Hough took a shot at Mark Ballas’ choreography…and ego. So naturally, he fired back yesterday with a little shot of his own calling her “hypocritical.” The best part of this story is that this could possibly be going all the way back to Julianne’s childhood where she’s said she was abused, and this was a back handed stab at the Ballas family, who basically raised her when she left the states to go live in England and train under them. Ouch.

-Since Hollywood doesn’t have an original idea in their heads and they just remake movies from 20 years ago, or just continue making sequels of others, it should come as no surprise as “Carrie” is being remade over 30 years later. So in promoting the movie, they figured they’d try and scare the sh** out of some people in a New York coffee shop:

Maybe I’m just skeptical, but how could anyone in that coffee shop possibly thought any of that was real? Really? We’re now believing someone can levitate someone else against a wall? Please.

-Before the Jenner’s announced their split yesterday, Khloe took to Instagram to send out another message to all the meanies out there by dropping an f-bomb. Because nothing says “I don’t care what people say about me” than responding on Instagram and dropping f-bombs. Nice move.

-I’ve preached about “Friday Night Lights” being one of the best dramas in the last 20 years numerous times on this site. There’s been talk since the season ended that a movie was in the works, but I will go on record as saying I hope it doesn’t happen. It’s like MJ retiring from the Bulls, but then playing for the Wizards for two years. Pointless. And apparently Coach Eric Taylor is one that’s against the movie as well. Couldn’t agree more. Leave it how it ended since there couldn’t have been a better ending to a series if they tried.

-Because Miley went on the “Today” show Monday and said that people don’t have sex after 40, Suzanne Somers I guess felt the need to tell everyone about her sex life. Great Suzanne. Thanks for that. This isn’t 1985. We don’t care.

-Do you realize how uninterested I am in Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling collaborating on a TV show? Unless it has to do with them reprising their roles of Kelly and Donna and filling us in on their lives in Beverly Hills, please stop with this nonsense. We want to see Kelly as a struggling single mom after Dylan her and her child, and Donna and David raising 8 kids while she runs a boutique and he tries to makes ends meet by DJ’ing. Other than that, not interested.

-In episode 2 of “Homeland” this past weekend, the new character Fara looked familiar to me. Of course! How could I forget? She was one of the women who auditioned to be Tom Cruise’s wife before Katie landed the 5 year role. Tom Cruise auditioning women to be his wife is my favorite Hollywood story ever.

-More background on the 9 year old that boarded the flight from Minneapolis to Vegas successfully last week. Yeah, safe to say this kid is in need of a little help. Not to mention the MLPS airport security staff. Might as well just have this 9 year old run it since he basically outsmarted everyone there.

-The stories I’ve heard about Owen Wilson here in Dallas are legendary. There isn’t a skirt he hasn’t tried to get up in, like, ever. Well, now he’s gone off and impregnated his trainer. This should surprise exactly zero people.

-Miley went on Jimmy Fallon last night and did an a cappella version of “We Can’t Stop” with Jimmy and the Roots. Gold.

-Tonight on “Survivor”, husband and wife Candice and John will be competing against each other in a duel, or truel as they now call it. They both talked about it to EW.com. So was this interview done during filming before it actually happened, or they are answering these questions months after the fact obviously knowing what the outcome was? My guess is the latter.

-By now it’s become quite obvious that Matt Schaub stinks. I mean, when you set the record for consecutive games with a pick-six, the proof is in the pudding. There are some Houstonians that are so pissed at Matt, they figured they’d let him know it. No, not on Facebook or Twitter or any social media outlet, but to his face showing up at his house showing up at his house. If you ever get that worked up over an athlete’s performance to where you violate their privacy, you are a loser.

  1. I am so confused. Does Steve not know that there already was a Friday Lights movie? It came out in 2004 and the show by the same name that he loves is based on it. What’s he talking about?

  2. Oh lol, okay maybe I should read the link before commenting. Steve is right, pointless.

  3. Count me in the minority (of one?) who had never actually heard Miley sing. That a cappella version of her song was actually quite good. She has a voice.

  4. Athena-
    Miley’s acapella version of that song was very good.. she has definitely improved as a singer, that’s for sure. And I thought she was hilarious on SNL.. for being 20 years old, she is pretty talented.. and I have a sneaking suspicion she knows exactly what she’s doing causing all of this “controversy”.. I think she has a lot more smarts than people give her credit for. That “We Did Stop” parody of the government shut down was one of the funniest I’ve seen in a while. I know there are many people that don’t like her, so let it be known that I am merely stating my opinion. (I will now duck under my table). ; )

  5. I don’t care for Miley- never have, even back in her younger, innocent Hannah Montana days- but she definitely has talent. I’ll admit when Wrecking Ball comes on the radio, I listen to it. I still think the video is disgusting, but the girl can sing when she puts her real emotions into it. And I agree with Kasey that she knows exactly what she’s doing and is laughing all the way to the bank.

  6. Laughing all the way to the bank, yes. But I also meant that she hasn’t lost her mind like people think she has. She’s very articulate, very present when she’s giving an interview, and she knows how to stay relevant in the industry. Anyway, she’s a kid, so it’s hard for me to say I don’t like her. I don’t like some of her actions, but I hope she’s growing and learning from them.

  7. It’s not hard for me to say I don’t like her. lol ; ) She turns 21 next month so I pretty much consider her an adult by now. My 16 and 17 year old stepdaughters are far more mature and grown up than she behaves. Sad! Okay, I’ll get off my Miley rant. (for now) haha
