Daily Links 4/3
-As mentioned in yesterday’s “Daily Links,” Catherine took a bit of beating on social media for posting a fake baby bump on April Fools Day. So yesterday she did a retraction saying she was sorry for her post and she didn’t mean to offend anyone, especially those that are infertile. My stance is the same. I honestly don’t think when she posted that pic she was intentionally making fun of people who can’t get pregnant. Catherine wasn’t the only person in America who posted about a pregnancy on April Fool’s, so people need to realize the context of the joke. Problem is a lot of them don’t. Sad.
-Well, we can put all rumor and speculation to rest. T Swift and Calvin Harris sure look like an item now after being seen together holding hands last night in Hollywood. I wonder if Taylor already has the lyrics stirring in her head about a song involving her and Calvin’s inevitable breakup, or does she show some respect and actually wait til it happens?
-In one of the bigger TV stories in recent memory, we are this close to Netflix ordering a re-boot of “Full House” and essentially everyone from the original cast is onboard. I seriously thought this was fake. I understand over the year people have been clamoring for the Tanner’s to come back with a bunch of appearances and reunions they’ve had over the years, but I didn’t think they’d actually go back and do the show. I think the nostalgia will probably wear off after about the first 10 minutes of the first episode.
-We all know Bruce Jenner is transitioning to be a woman. A couple days ago I shared with you the story of how he just had breast implants. What story do you think is coming next? You guessed it. He’s now shopping for lingerie. He’s a 44C in case you were thinking of getting him a nice negligee thingy.
-We hear about fad diets all the time, whether it be the Atkins, Paleo, 21 Day Cleanses, etc. Guess who needs one? No, not Kelly Clarkson. Stop it, people. She looks perfectly fine. I refuse to listen to listen to all your Belly Bloatedson cracks. Enough already. No, it’s the Pope that was told by his doctors to lay off the pasta. Really? The Pope can’t cut out the Olive Garden either? Makes me feel so much better.
-I had no idea Kendra and Hank were still together. What exactly does this guy have to do for her to ditch him? You do realize the dude likes hanging with she-males right? Wow. How far you’ve fallen Kendra. Anyway, here’s a clip from their show where I guess she’s sad that he likes chilling with people that aren’t his wife. This is all very confusing to me.
-Jimmy Fallon has easily become the king of late night with so many videos that have gone viral. He was back with another edition of “The Evolution of Mom Dancing 2” featuring Michelle Obama last night. Are the dances that great? Probably not. But lets not lose sight of the fact this is a talk show host getting the First Lady of the United States to do this with him…twice. Pretty cool.
-Remember when Vanilla Ice burglarized that home a few weeks ago? Those charges have been dropped and now he just facescommunity service time. You don’t jail the Ice. No sir. When he’s in an orange jumpsuit picking up trash on the side of the road, how many people driving by you think will drop a few cracks at his expense? Over/under is set at 1,000. Go! “Yo Ice, word to your mutha!”
-Peter Facinelli explains his recent engagement to Jaimie Alexander. Peter, you do realize you’re basically hated in this world because you dumped both Kelly Taylor and Amanda Beckett, right? You could children from a burning building and I still don’t think America would forgive you for how you treated Amanda at that party. Jerk.
-Obviously we know comedy is such a subjective thing. What some people think is hilarious some people might not find funny at all. One of the funnier bits going right now in the comedy world, according to those in the know based on his popularity, is Billy Eichner’s “Billy on the Street.” I’m sorry. I just don’t get it. I’ve seen a few of them, and I really want them to be funny, but I just don’t. Here he is in NY asking randoms what David Letterman should do with his career. I guess because there’s so many “man on the street” bits that other than his weird ass personality, nothing really sets it apart. Yelling does not make something funny that isn’t. I don’t know. I realize I’m in the minority though since this guy is getting major run nowadays.
-The human Ken Doll will appear on the upcoming season of “Botched” on E!. The fact that anyone even wants to look like a human Ken Doll is beyond me. I mean seriously, you look ridiculous. You know how you’re always told as a child to stay away from fire because you might burn yourself? Well, if you’re an adult and you have to stay away from fire because your body might melt off, you know you’ve had too much plastic surgery.
-Derek Hough recently talked about how awkward it used to be to dance with his sister. Yes we understand there’s nothing sexual happening, but yeah, that’s gotta be a little weird, doesn’t it? Especially the way those two dance. Glad I wasn’t the only one who thought this.
-About a month too late, but Daniel Seavey was finally eliminated from “American Idol” this week. I haven’t talked about Idol much at all this season even though I’ve seen every episode. There wasn’t a singer in recent memory on that show that was so out of his league and completely overwhelmed by the moment every time he stepped on stage than Daniel. Sorry. We all know why he stuck around. He talked to the media this week about his journey on the show.
-Celebrity Baby News: Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle have decided to grace us with their child’s name: Rocket Zot. I can’t even.
-I’ve always been a sucker for game show bloopers. I could YouTube them for hours on end. Another one just recently happened on “Price is Right” where dingbat girl accidentally gave a woman a free car even though she didn’t win:
