The “Bachelor” has kept the same schedule for the last 5 seasons – they film from September through November and the first episode airs the first Monday in January. This season is going to be slightly different. There’s been no press release about this yet, no tweets, and ABC.com’s “Bachelor” page still has all of Sean’s stuff on there. However, the Bachelor Fan Page on Facebook is showing that it’s going to be a 2-night premiere beginning Sunday, Jan. 5th. Just remember, this is a Monday show. I really don’t think they are airing any of episode 1 on Sunday night. Or even starting episode 1 on Sunday and finishing it up on Monday night, thus giving us 4 hours of programming dedicated to night one. Not happening. Maybe it’s going be footage of Chris having his sit down with Juan Pablo? Maybe it’s going to be a retrospective of past “Bachelor” seasons? Maybe it’s going to be a video package of Juan Pablo’s life? I’m sure it’ll be announced soon, or I’ll find out. Judging by the spoilers so far this season, I’m guessing I’ll find out before they officially announce it.
-Reboots in Hollywood are all the craze. Rebooting movies from the 70′s & 80′s, rebooting TV shows, it never ends. The latest they are thinking of rebooting is the TV show “Charmed,” a show that ended in 2006. Are they that unoriginal that they are re-making shows that ended in the mid 2000′s? And if Alyssa Milano isn’t gonna be a part of it, I don’t want to see it. Not that I ever watched the original, but still. The more Alyssa, the better.
-Bruce Jenner celebrated his 64th birthday over the weekend, and not only was Kris Jenner a part of it, but she made sure every media outlet knew about it by tweeting out pictures. And you wonder why this family is so insufferable? You want everyone to respect your privacy, yet you constantly invite people into your lives. You people make no sense.
-Horrible news this morning breaking in the world of entertainment. Brace yourselves. What has been rumor over the last few weeks was made official this morning: The Jonas Brosare officially broken up. If you have an answer as to how the rest of us are supposed to go on, please let me know. I’m having a hard time already.
-I love “Homeland.” I also love anything Muppets/Sesame Street related. So when they decided to collaborate on a 5 minute parody, I thought pure gold. It’s corny, it’s cheesy, repetitive, and honestly not even all that funny, but what the hell. It’s Sesame Street. Can we ever be mad at them for anything?
-I know you’re going to find this hard to believe, but a famous Hollywood actress once had a nose job. Lisa Kudrow admits she got hers done before high school. Now it’d just be nice if she told us everything she’s gotten done SINCE she became relevant.
-Jimmy Kimmel Live usually has some of the funniest bits going in late night television. However, looks like one of them went too far and ABC had to issue an apology.
-Nicole Kidman is finally admitting something all of us knew 20 years ago – Tom Cruise was never truly her great love. Gee thanks, Nicole. Fascinating stuff. What’s next? You gonna tell us he’s straight?
-Production on the 50 Shades of Grey movie has been pushed back til the beginning of December, thus giving the lunatics two more weeks to complain about something and starting new petitions to get another actor in the lead. Delay in production means a delay in the release date too. I’m sure those crazies will handle that with the utmost normalcy.
-Selena Gomez decided to hang out at the pool in a zebra bikini and show off her new hip tattoo. The story does say she’s 21 now, right? Ok, whew. Just checking. Only 8 more days til my niece Olivia sees her at Staples Center and her world is rocked.
-George Clooney has a new gal pal Amal Alamuddin. I know nothing about her, nor do I care to, since she’s just the next one in line before she’s replaced by someone younger and hotter. Good luck, Amal. Hope you at least get a LV bag out of it or something.
-Kaley Cuoco and her new fiancé Kaley Anna double date with Anna Faris and her husband Chris Pratt. Wait a second…Kaley went out without Ali? Oooohhhh boy. Someone’s gonna be jealous.
-Jason Aldean’s tour bus struck and killed a pedestrain. Man, that’s horrible. Lets just pray that Jason’s mistress was ok.
-Should we start working on the “Dad of the Year” award for Simon Cowell, or just wait until his baby is born? Sounds like he’s going to make a great father.
-If you didn’t see this from this past weekend, it’s pretty neat. A couple weeks ago the Ohio St. marching band did the Michael Jackson moonwalk. This past weekend, they did a tribute to the movies. Man, it was never cool to be in the band. Maybe until now:
