Wow, we’ve already reached May of 2015. That means we are now in the month where the “Bachelorette” officially begins with a two night, 3-hour premiere beginning May 18th. Monday night the 18th will be a 2 hour show, followed by a 1 hr. show the following night. Since we are now in “Bachelorette” month, next week I will start revealing all the stuff I’ve been holding on to. The first night cocktail party and what the show is hiding about that night, the voting that happened, the drunkenness, who had the 1-on-1’s in the season, and answering the teasers I gave you. Hell, I might even be Mr. Nice Guy and just give you your episode-by-episode spoilers up to a certain point in filming next week. We’ll see. Regardless, I will start giving you stuff next week. By all means, if anyone has anything that they think has happened, or any other spoilers they know of, I’d love to hear it so email me. I haven’t seen any other media outlet report anything on Kaitlyn’s season since the boxing group date, which was the first one of this season. Unless I’m missing something, you will be getting A LOT of info next week that none of you were aware of. Filming is close to being over, and with a much, much quicker turnaround time for this season than any “Bachelor” season, I’m hoping to have it all for you before the 18th. Every season is different, but things look good so far.
Daily Links 5/1
-A lot of you have been asking me about Chris & Whitney lately. Here’s Radar’s story on them which really is a bunch of hot air not clarifying anything. I’m going to tell you exactly what I told you when Chris’ season was airing. He is not marrying Whitney. He was never interested in marrying anyone from that show. So whether they’re actually broken up now, whether it happens in two weeks, or whether it happens in two months, does it really matter? They’re never getting married, plain and simple. I don’t know anything about what’s happening now other than I see the same exact things you do on social media. Does he look like and is he saying things that make it sound like these two are spending the rest of their lives together? So yeah, I think you have your answer.
-Bruce Jenner’s gender reveal apparently has the family split on which team they’re on: Team Jenner or Team Kardashian. I mean, would that really be too hard to figure out. Sure, the Kardashian clan is saying all the right things publicly, but if there actually is a family divide, I’m guessing all of Bruce’s older kids are Team Jenner and everyone that bows under the matriarch that is Kris Jenner is Team Kardashian.
-Did you watch Lip Sync Battle last night? If you didn’t you should. And yes, I’m speaking to myself since I had a full night of NFL Draft and Spurs/Clippers going on, so I haven’t watched yet. But here’s a clip of Hoda Kotb vs Michael Strahan. By the way, if you didn’t see Mike Tyson doing “Push It” last week, it’s a must see. He was all over the place.
-James Corden is quietly making a name for himself with the “Late Late Show” that he took over for Craig Ferguson recently. Here he was performing “The Time of My Life” with Adele Dazeem last night:
For those who are longtime readers of this column, I’ve mentioned it a few times before, but I won the 7th grade Lip Sync Contest to that song performing as half man, half woman. It was legendary. Now, if I could only find that video.
-Reese Witherspoon’s new movie with Sofia Vergara “Hot Pursuit” had its red carpet premiere last night, and Reese posted a pic with her daughter Ava on Instagram, and yes, they look like twins. I wonder if Ava ever watches “Cruel Intentions” and asks, “Mommy, is that the scene where you and daddy conceived me?”
-With “Fuller House” coming to Netflix, the original is ramping up the nostalgia factor. People.com has a Full House Quiz that you can take, testing your knowledge about everything from the show. I just realized I didn’t watch that show barely at all since I didn’t know even basic questions. And since I don’t have Netflix, well, probably won’t be watching “Fuller House” either. I think I’ll live.
-Wednesday night during her Las Vegas performance, Britney Spears rolled her ankle on stage. Sorry, but that was funny. Well, not so funny for the people that have tickets to her show this weekend since she has rescheduled this weekend’s shows due to her clumsiness. Oh Britney. You naughty little minx, you. You’re forgiven.
-Remember the other day I posted the story of Demi Lovato being interviewed in New Zealand talking about the wrist tattoo she got drunk on a tour bus when she was 18? Well the tattoo artist who gave it to her wasn’t thrilled that Demi called her out, so Demi responded like only she could in a very passive aggressive “apology,” if you want to call it that. Hmmmm, so who’s at fault here? The drunk 18 year old asking for the tattoo or the tattoo artist who agreed to ink up someone who was completely incoherent and had no idea what she was doing?
-“Survivor” castoff Shirin had her conference call with the media yesterday to talk about her time on the show. These conference calls I link to every week are very interesting because you always hear the contestants say something that wasn’t shown on TV. Like Shirin knowing that Mike had the idol and the act she put on at Tribal was just that – an act.
-The new “50 Shades of Darker” trailer is out and it basically is absolutely nothing. What makes it that much worse for all the bored housewives out there who live for the mommy porn that this is, is that the movie doesn’t even come out til Feb. of 2017! Really? And they’re gonna give you that teaser of Christian putting on a masquerade mask to hold you over another 22 months? Outstanding. I hope these women don’t overheat in the meantime.
-This might be one of the more irrelevant stories I’ve ever posted on “Daily Links.” Hey, it’s a slow news day. Cut me some slack. You ready? Ok, brace yourselves. Jennifer Aniston shared her ice cream with some strangers. Yes, that’s now considered a news story in today’s day and age.
-I’m kinda looking forward to “Jurassic World” when it’s released. Come to find out the original T Rex is returning in the new movie. I dug the first two movies. The third one? Ummmm, not so much. Do you realize in the third movie that a giant T Rex was terrorizing downtown San Diego by the end? Just think about that for a minute and get back to me. How utterly f***ing ridiculous.
-Remember the story a couple weeks ago about Tori Spelling burning her arm on a steaming hibachi grill at Benihana’s. Her husband Dean says she’s doing better now, but had to get a skin graft. Great. Whatever. The most interesting part of that story is him saying they are thinking of suing. Huh? Suing for what? Your wife’s stupidity to brace her fall on a burning hot stove with her arms? Good luck with that.
-Taylor and Calvin sittin in a tree…K-I-S-S-I-N-G…first comes love, then comes marriage…then comes an inevitable break up where Taylor writes a song about him. However, while they’re still together, lets enjoy Taylor and Calvin driving around LA together yesterday. How cute.
