So DeAndre played his first game in Dallas last night and the fans let him have it. I was just enjoying my popcorn and taking it all in while the guy next to me screamed at least 100 times during the game, “DeAndre you suck.” Great, dude. He can’t hear you. Look, I get why he changed his mind. Even being a Maverick fan I know the Clippers are a better team. It made all the sense in the world for him to stay on the Clippers and have Chris Paul and Blake Griffin surrounding him, because DeAndre is not a #1 option on a team and never will be. He’s a perfect fit for the Clippers. The Mavericks courting him saying he was going to become a more focal point of their offense was them just blowing smoke up his ass. He can’t be when he hasn’t shown any offensive game in his 7 years, nor can he shoot free throws. So I don’t fault DeAndre for staying with the Clippers. More money, better team. But how he handled it? Completely wrong. You don’t not return calls and texts to an owner you had verbally agreed to a contract with. Just be straight up, tell him you changed your mind, and be done with it. But not letting the Mavericks know you’d changed your mind was just stupid and made him look bad. The Mavericks got their revenge by winning last night, but we all know in the long run the Clippers made out better, and the Mavericks probably shouldn’t have wanted DeAndre as bad as they did in the first place. On to “Daily Links”…
-I’d say a satisfying episode of “Survivor” last night, wouldn’t you? Holy crap. A 9 person blindside essentially since Kelly had 9 votes against her and none of those people had a clue she had an idol. Jeff Probst talks about it in his weekly EW.com interview. And dammit Fishbach, get your column up in time so I can post it. Bryan Fischer’s recap will be up later today. I will tweet that out when it’s posted. In the meantime, check out Savage’s Ponderosa footage:
-Yesterday it became official that Andy Cohen is adding two new “Real Housewives” shows to his stable – Potomac and Dallas. There were reports about a Dallas reality show being filmed for Bravo, called “Ladies of Dallas,” but according to this blog, that show is what they are turning into RHoD. LeeAnne Locken seems to be the only person that seems to be 100% confirmed for this cast. Will I have spoilers because it’s where I live? Considering I’ve never had any spoilers for any other show outside the “Bachelor” franchise, my guess would be no.
-It didn’t take long for the paparazzi to drag up pictures of the nanny that Gavin Rossdale was allegedly banging for 3 years during his marriage to Gwen. Remember yesterday how I said these Hollywood couples need to stop hiring hot nannies to watch their kids? Ummmm, I take that back. This nanny isn’t hot. But she does look like a full blown “Single White Female” considering she tries desperately to dress and look like Gwen. Scary.
-Most of you don’t have a clue who this person is, and neither did I until yesterday, but condolences go out to the family and friends of Carol Doda. Who is Carol Doda? Well, she was one of the first strippers to ever go topless, paving the way for so many young women with daddy and cocaine issues to follow in her footsteps. You are true pioneer, Carol. Thank you for the example you set. All Asian businessman thank you as well.
-I can’t remember if they’ve ever let a contestant who was eliminated return to the show on DWTS, but apparently, it’s still a possibility for Alexa, considering what happened to Tamar on Monday. Logically, it makes sense. However, with Alexa getting perfect 30’s this week and still being eliminated, it seems that letting her back on is only prolonging the inevitable and she’ll be the next one to go anyway. I don’t know. As much as it sucks she was eliminated and how surprising it was, I’d rather just let it be and move on.
-So apparently Scott Disick isn’t done with rehab, and him posting a picture of him boarding a plane was just because he got his phone back. How long is this guy gonna be in rehab? A year? Two years? Seems like he’s been there forever. Rehab is really cutting into to his Vegas party appearances. Someone might want to check on that. Scott Disick wouldn’t be Scott Disick if he wasn’t hugging up on some 22 year old hottie at Lavo. Let Scott be Scott.
-Noted MILF Julianne Moore is addicted to Twitter. She can’t get enough of it and is on it constantly. Maybe Julianne Moore is the only person in the world that doesn’t get trolls tweeting at her on an hourly basis. Whatever the case, good for her. I mean, my Twitter news feed is pretty much the first thing I read in the morning to see if I missed anything while I was sleeping. I think it’s how a lot of get our news in the morning before we start our day. Or is that just me?
-Jennifer Lawrence says in a new interview with Vogue that she’s lonely every Saturday night and guys are mean to her. Uh huh. Sure you are, Jen. This is so ridiculous. The wealthy, attractive woman yet again claiming that no one asks her out. A huge pet peeve of mine. No, it’s not that no one is asking you out Jen. It’s that who you WANT to ask you isn’t asking you out. I’m guessing there are thousands of men who’d ask you out tonight. They’re just no one you want to go out with. So stop it with the “woe is me” garbage. The highest paid actress in America can’t find a date? Please.
-Amid the Leah Remini book release and all the negativity surrounding Scientology recently, Tom Cruise wants to do a sit down interview, preferably with Oprah, to clear his image. Is he gonna jump up and down on the couch again like a complete spaz? Hell, put that on PPV and I’d watch it. Seriously, what happened to Tom Cruise? I said it before and I’ll say it again, he’s probably the weirdest, most famous Hollywood celeb out there, and that’s sayin’ a lot.
-Farrah Abraham is gonna be a mom again. Well, at least she hopes to be. Looks like this one wants to adopt in the future. This is great. Because I’m sure any adoption agency has this mother at the top of their list to care for a needy child. When you hand your daughter off to your nanny so you can turn tricks for the camera for the night, you know you’re up for Mother of the Year. If Farrah Abraham is given a child to adopt, our adoption laws in the U.S. are officially f***ed.
-The cast of season 28 of the “Amazing Race” is made up of social media stars – Instagrammers, YouTubers, and Vine stars who have gained a giant following from something they’ve done. Apparently the race begins this Saturday and the beginning of it will be able to be streamed online. Considering I’ve only watched 1 season of the previous 27 (and I can’t even remember which season it was or who won), I can’t say I’m all that interested in this. But I know many of you are into this show, so here you go. I will admit, I do find the “Amazing Race” spoilers fascinating, as it’s one giant crowd sourcing event from country to country.
-Idol premieres on Jan. 6th for their 15th and final season. I’m sure there will be a lot of look backs during this season, along with performances from probably every past winner at some point. I gotta believe that at some point, Randy, Paula, and Simon make an appearance, no? Say what you will about the show now, but in it’s prime, it was the most successful reality show for a good 6-8 year stretch in the history of reality shows. That’s quite an achievement. Idol was “must see TV” back in the day and pretty much paved the way for competition shows on TV. It changed the face of singing competitions as we know it. I’ll definitely be watching.
-And finally, another game show clip. This woman on “Wheel of Fortune” had to be doing a bit, right? Z? X? What the hell was she doing?
