Sorry about no column yesterday. I thought I was gonna have time Sunday night but I ended up taking my niece and nephew to see “Frozen” at a later showing on Sunday, then got back, had dinner, and didn’t feel like scouring the internet for stories. Man I gotta tell ya’, of all the Disney/Pixar animated movies I’ve taken Olivia and Nicholas to see, I think I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I think Olivia enjoyed “Frozen” a little more than Nicholas did since he’s all big into his superheroes and frankly, I don’t think he cared for a movie about Princesses and girly stuff like that. But all these movies that I’ve seen all have pretty much the same formula: Happy beginning, conflict in the middle, happy ending. Wash, rinse, repeat, make gazillions of dollars. Man, I missed my calling. I somehow should’ve gotten involved in animation. What a cash cow that is. I’ve got a couple good cartoon voices I could use as characters. C’mon, someone offer me a deal. I could totally voice the next great cartoon with my high pitched squeal. I think.
And of course, be sure to check out this season’s episode-by-episode spoilers.
-The biggest “Bachelor” related news over the weekend was obviously the in flight live tweeting on Thanksgiving day from producer Elan Gale that ended up making national news. Of course last night, Elan admitted the whole thing was fake, which many people suspected in the first place. I’m not really sure what Elan’s motivation was in all this. I mean, it’s his job to lie, manipulate, and create fake drama so we shouldn’t be the least bit surprised at what he did. However, is he that bored? Did he really need that much attention? I’m sure he’s thrilled he picked up 135k Twitter followers since Thursday, so in that aspect, what he set out to do worked. But once the story got legs, it really had too many holes to be real.
Why not just admit it was fake right after the flight was over? Why carry on the lie for 5 more days and then get mad at people who questioned it, which is basically what he did if you read his Twitter feed. The guy has fake live tweeted in the past, so anyone who’s done that has every right to be called out in the future. It’s like the boy who cried wolf. How does he not see that? And then to say “everything I say is a joke, it’s your fault if you believed it” is about as ignorant as you can get. I truly hope he doesn’t believe that and he’s just being Elan the Jerkoff again. Whatever the case, pretty much goes to show that these producers are slime. Always have been and always will be. Looking back, the whole thing was silly and was never going to be truly believed until someone found out “Diane’s” last name and got a picture of her, which we now know never could’ve happened. But at least now I have more to make fun of Elan for other than looking like a homeless person.
-WetPaint gathered up a few of Juan Pablo’s Spanish commercials he’s done and posted them. I didn’t watch all because, well, I don’t know Spanish (despite my wonderful tweets). But yeah, this guy is TOTALLY out to find a wife and step mom. Uh huh. Ok. And Elan is an honest tweeter.
-The Kardashians Xmas card has been released and man, I gotta tell ya’, I care less about it now than I did before it was ever announced.
-Interesting piece by Joe Jonas that came out over the weekend talking about his brothers career growing up and being molded by Disney. Nothing too earth shattering but it was different in that you don’t hear many celebrities speak so candidly about certain topics. Then again, if you ask another former Disney star Dylan Sprouse, he thinks Joe exaggerated and it’s all BS to draw attention. I think I’ve learned a lesson. Basically anything that anyone says about anything is not to be believed until they can prove it. To just blindly believe things in the media without any sort of track record, credibility, photos, etc is just naïve. Probably why I’m so skeptical about most things and people.
-Demi Lovato says back in her cutting, drug days she was a nightmare. I bet on her Match.com profile her quote was “I work hard and play hard.”
-So the latest rumor for next season of DWTS has them going with an all Oscar winners cast. Fail. I don’t see this happening, and if it did, I don’t think it would work. You’d think most Oscar winners are a bit older and more established that they don’t need DTWS to help their career. Sure, there are some young Oscar winners but do you really think Jennifer Lawrence would do that show?
-The first set photo from the 50 Shades of Grey movie is out and I’m guessing bored housewives all over America are now in full freakout mode over Christian and Anastasia having a cup of coffee together. Wow. Riveting picture.
-Barbara Walters list of the years Most Fascinating People is out. Most aren’t too surprising – Miley, Jennifer Lawrence, the Duck Dynasty clan, etc. But really? William and Kate’s baby? Someone that doesn’t have a clue what’s going on and can’t even speak is considered one of the year’s most fascinating people?
-Katy Perry and John Mayer have a duet coming out and released the cover art for it. Enjoy it while it lasts Katy. Unfortunately you’re with the wrong dude.
-Here’s an original idea. A single Hollywood mom is writing a book. Man, there hasn’t been one of those released in like the last 14 minutes or so. Jennie Garth is jumping into the pool next with a book about her 90210 days and being a single, dating mom. Lets just stick to the 90210 stuff. Oh, and that time you dated my former roommate Jason Clark for a hot minute. Tell us all about that.
-In case you still think these two will end up staying married, Lamar and Khloe didn’t spend Thanksgiving together. Now we just need to know which crackhouse Lamar did spend his Thanksgiving at.
-In news that makes me feel much less pervy when I see Selena Gomez in the outfit she wore last night to the Jingle Ball concert here in Dallas, Bradley Cooper is dating a 21 year old, Suki Waterhouse. Really? I’m sorry, but a hot British model is not allowed to have a name like Suki Waterhouse. Anyway, Bradley Cooper is 38. I’m 38. So now if I ever go down the Jef/Arie road of dating women barely out of college, I can now use Bradley Cooper as an excuse.
-But of course, the best story of the weekend happened in sports, as it usually does. The ending of the Bama/Auburn game was one for the ages and one I can watch 1000 times over and not get sick of. Better than any drama on TV.
