As I mentioned last week, “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” won’t return on a weekly basis until the “Bachelor” season starts the week of January 6th. But in the meantime, I’m going to start posting the occasional one or two emails before the “Daily Links” portion of the column. Doesn’t even have to be “Bachelor” related. Just anything that catches my eye, or is about something from the “Daily Links” or maybe even I might thrown in a “Dr. Reality Steve” email. Last night I think I received the longest “Dr. Reality Steve” email I’ve ever gotten in my life. I’ll save that for later in the week. So anything that you got, whether it be something about something you say in the “Daily Links” or whatever, feel free to send it and I’ll try and post at least one daily up until the season starts, when it’ll then go back to being a weekly feature. “Dr. Reality Steve” is enjoying his hiatus by the way. He will be back and refreshed with all new wonderful insight to give come January. This email is related to the Katy Perry story last week regarding seeds being stuffed into her CD cases:
I had to laugh out loud at your story saying Katy Perry’s new CD contained “bio hazard” for including seeds in the packaging.
I worked for a major commercial media company when her last album was released. One of her “special edition” cases was printed with ink that smelled like cotton candy. The manufacturing part of the plant smelled AWFUL for about 3 1/2 weeks and the scent seeped into the offices after about 5 days. I went home and my husband and kids could smell it in my clothes.
Never bought the album and now I can’t stand the smell of cotton candy…. forever scarred, Katy. Thanks.
Comment: She really did that? Man, that probably would scar me from cotton candy too. Never been a huge fan of cotton candy. Flavored cotton balls never really appealed to me. Especially when it stuck all over my hands, made my tongue red, and gave me the chills biting down into it. Sorry, I’ll stick with a Snickers bar.
-In probably the least important news of the weekend, Audrina Patridge changed her hair color. Wow. Fascinating stuff. I guess now that she’s taking over for Ali Fedotowsky’s show, she must need to have hair like her. Or something like that.
-Courtney Stodden spoke out for the first time about her breakup with older pervy guy. At least I think that’s Courtney Stodden. When did she go get a new face? Holy crap.
-And it would only be fitting that Courtney and Doug would have one of the weirder separation agreement’s we’ve ever seen. They’re going to continue living together. Translation: Doug can watch me have sex with all the weirdos, transients, and freak shows I bring home.
-It’s long been believed that everyone in Hollywood likes George Clooney, he has no enemies, and he can do no wrong. For whatever reason, Clooney decided to take some shots at Crowe, DiCaprio, and Ashton Kutcher in an interview with Esquire magazine.
-”Survivor: Blood vs Water” contestant Aras got engaged at the end of last week. I know there are spoilers out there for this season, but I’ve yet to read to read them nor will I. Interesting timing though on the engagement and why “People” would cover it.
-Hey you’ll never believe this, but Tom Cruise might have some shady people working for him. It’s possible that he was spying on Katie through her doorman. Like any of us would be surprised by this. That might be the easiest person to use to get info on Katie and, well, this guy has been in “Mission: Impossible” movies so he’s probably tapping her bathroom too.
-The European VMA’s were this weekend. In Amsterdam. Miley performed. And Miley twerked. It pretty much went as you’d expect it to other than the fact than she actually wore clothes this time. Man, Miley loves her midgets doesn’t she? Didn’t she say she was giving up her twerking and sticking her tongue out, or was she misquoted? Whatever Miles. Keep doin your thang.
-You know, like smoking weed on stage. It’s Amsterdam, so what she did was perfectly legal but still unexpected. So much so that when it aired here in the US, they edited that part out. Can’t imagine why they’d do that? I think that sets a wonderful example for all her little Miley’s out there. Smoke em’ if you got em’.
-Miss Universe was crowned over the weekend and it went to Grabriela Isler, Miss Venezuela. Figured it wouldn’t take more than 18 seconds for the “Bachelor” to tie in the Miss Universe winner to the fact that their “Bachelor” is from Venezuela – and it didn’t when executive producer Robert Mills tweeted about it. Hey, did you know this season’s “Bachelor” is Latin? I think they might remind you 459 times this season. All style, no substance. Just watch.
-So you knew it wouldn’t take long for the Biebs prostitute to start talking about the video she posted with him sleeping in bed. And I’m sure it won’t be long before a reputable tabloid in the US pays her about 50k for an exclusive either. They’re probably all fighting over her now. I’m sure she has a lot to say, you know, being a hooker and all.
-Kaley Cuoco took to Twitter (where else?) to tell the whole world she’s not pregnant. Thank you for the clarification since, yeah, I’ll admit I was one of those people who believe you got engaged to a dude you basically just started dating after Superman dumped you because he put a bun in your oven. Glad to know I was wrong.
-When I reported a couple weeks ago there was going to be a re-boot of Murder, She Wrote I mistakenly said that Angela Lansbury was dead, which I corrected. Well now the un-dead Angela Lansbury has voiced her thoughts on a re-boot and she thinks it’s a horrible idea. Because it is. I may have been in 7th grade that show was geared towards anyone over 50, but we used to watch as a family every Sunday night, and during the last commercial break we all had to write down who we thought did it. I don’t think I ever got it right. Which is funny to look back on now. Kinda like Scooby Doo. There was literally only 2 people every episode who could’ve been behind the Scooby Doo shenanigans, yet there I was, totally baffled every time they pulled off the person’s mask. I’d totally figure it out now if I watched.
-Katherine Webb got some camera time again during the Bama/LSU game on Saturday night. Last time this happened, Brent Musberger had to change his pants during the commercial break. This time? Verne Lundquist handled it perfectly. Even took a little shot at the four letter network in the process.
-However the best thing to come out of the Bama/LSU game was this fan GIF that’s been making its way around the internet. I’m sorry, this reaction to an LSU touchdown is so stupid, it’s funny.
