I usually watch the “Voice” auditions, then never watch another show the rest of the season. However this past week, I decided to give the “Battle Rounds” a try. Big mistake. Why? Because each judge pretty much already knows which singer they like better and who they’re going to pick, hence the reason they match up certain ones versus others. But then if you rewind back to the audition rounds, I guarantee when they were pleading for a singer to join their team, at some point they’d say, “You can win this thing.” Just seems all disingenuous. The coach has listened to both singers sing. They’ve worked with them in rehearsals. They’ve gotten feedback from their guest coach. Of course they already know who they want to go through before that “Battle Round” song even takes place, yet, they have to act like it’s the toughest decision in the world. One of many things wrong with that show. The over excited crowd on every episode, of every performance, clapping in unison to every song is unbearable. And Carson Daly is a bore. Other than that, great show!
-Who would’ve ever thought that Kanye and Kim’s engagement was being recorded? So with every aspect of these people’s lives seemingly caught on camera, how did Kim NOT know that a proposal was coming?
-Kim also talks about how hard it was to lose her baby weight after North was born? Wait, huh? She lost her baby weight? When did this happen? Didn’t we just see a selfie of her in that one piece bikini?
–50 Shades of Grey dorks can now start rioting and picketing again since a new Christian Grey has been named to replace Charlie Hunnam. I expect the petition of upset, bored, lonely housewives to start in 3…2…1.
-Edward Norton is hosting SNL this weekend. Not sure why, and I believe this is his first time. Cuz when you think comedy, you think Edward Norton.
-Another sad day when we hear about a Hollywood breakup. Minka Kelly and Captain America have decided to party ways. Man, that’s gotta be tough. You go from Derek Jeter to Captain America, and back to single again. That can only mean one thing for Minka – time to rekindle the flame with Tim Riggins. Texas Forever.
-Well, well, well…if you had “Vegas Hooters waitress” in your office pool for what the occupation of Pauly D’s baby mama was, you win! I mean, are ANY of us surprised by this? Cute kid. Man, it’s gonna suck when she’s working the pole at 18 to make ends meet.
-Interesting Tribal Council last night on “Survivor,” especially after a giant blunder in the Immunity Challenge. Jeff Probst answered his “3 Questions” from EW.com this morning to talk all about it.
-Tough to hear that Tori & Dean are struggling so much financially they can’t get Dean that vasectomy he wants. This can only mean one thing. Donna and Kelly need to re-open their boutique store in that little strip mall. Has to happen. C’mon, Donna needs the cash and Kelly needs a job.
-Yet another instance of a celebrity responds to trolls on Twitter. When will these people ever learn? This time it was Danielle Fishel, better known as Topanga from “Boy Meets World.” The hate police was out in full force commenting on her marrying a guy 7 years younger than her and calling her fat in her wedding dress. Really? THAT bothered her? She should probably move out of Hollywood if that’s getting under her skin enough to go on a Twitter rant.
-And speaking of Twitter rants, Kendall Jenner is back at it. Really a lot of the same ol’, same ol’ with her talking about how the media is out to get her family. Uh huh. Hey, she might even be right on this one, but frankly, I don’t think most people care since they’d love to see your family go away.
-The show “TMZ Live” has now been renewed through 2017. And there goes society. What was shocking to me is this show is only on in 15 markets. Seems like wherever I go, I always see this on late at night.
-One of the many criticisms of Miley is that she looks rather, well, horsey. One website decided to take that to the 100th degree and compare Miley to 17 different horses. Enjoy.
-Katy Perry says she keeps a lock of Miley & Taylor’s hair in her purse at all times. No, that’s not the least bit creepy – Signed, Pedophiles of America.
-The latest craze in making an ass of yourself on TV has now happened twice in a span of five days – taking off your shirt during a live shot. Happened this past Saturday on College Gameday and then again last night in Boston. Sure they look like idiots, but it makes for a good laugh.
-Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland has a cameo in the opening scene of “Dumber and Dumber Too.” Considering what a nutjob the Dutch Oven is, and how much he’s obsessed with that movie, I’m sure this made his career.
