We are nearing the end. The final rose ceremony in Jamaica is this Wednesday, and filming will be done. As mentioned last week, depending on how soon I find out the ending of the show will determine when I post the episode-by-episode spoilers, since I like release everything at once. I don’t leave for NY until next Wed. the 25th, so it will definitely come before then. I don’t see how there’s any way I won’t find out the ending before next Wednesday. Obviously coming off a season where I had the ending wrong, I wanna do a little more due dilligence, but then again, every season is different. Last season’s ending has nothing to do with this season’s ending. And considering I have every date, every rose, and every elimination up til this point (including everything I’ve spoiled publicly up to this point), I feel pretty confident about getting the ending right. I know after being wrong, no matter what I write there will be doubt, and that’s fine. It comes with the territory. But I think I’ve got a reeeeeeallllly good pulse on this season. Especially if the final four plays ends up playing out like I told you it would before the hometown dates even started. On to your “Daily Links”…
-As you know, Chris Harrison is the new host of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” A couple weeks ago, they had “Bachelor” alums on the show, and now it seems like that show does more “theme” weeks than in previous season. This week’s theme is Eligible Bachelors. Hmmmmm, I wonder if any of these guys will end up on the next season of the “Bachelorette?”
-In case you missed SNL this weekend, EW.com has your recap with host Elizabeth Banks. I enjoyed it, but then again, there are few SNL’s I don’t enjoy. The all girls music video to their first time getting horny was a good one. Who doesn’t want to see Cecily Strong humping a pillow to Carson Daly?
-We all know that selfies have basically become the downfall of our society. Especially ones that are faked. Well, Kim Zolciak got on in the action and got called out for it. Uhhhhh Kim. You do realize how off those pictures are right? We can see clear as day what you look like when someone other than yourself photographs you at the beach. Amazing how tiny your waist looks when you do take the pic yourself. I don’t understand the point of this. Then again, so many people live their lives on social media that’s completely different from what’s going on in their real life.
-Miley is at it again, and now we’ve officially entered the point where she is steps away from self releasing some sort of sex tape. She posed naked for something called Candy magazine. No, not topless. No, not naked but covering herself up. No, naked. As in, zero clothes on and showing everyone her birthday suit. And oh yeah, one where she’s licking her armpit hair. What’s funny to me there was once a point where people were comparing who would have a better career, Miley or Taylor? Any questions?
-The nanny that allegedly broke up Gavin & Gwen’s marriage, Mindy Mann, was back in LA was back in LA this weekend for the first time since the story broke, and basically couldn’t walk four steps without the paparazzi in her face. Sucks for her but, well, that’s what you get for allegedly sleeping with a married man. There’s really only one thing to say about this: Really Gavin? Really?
-Khloe Kardashian will be on Ellen promoting herself and, yeah, promoting herself. Oh sure, she’ll throw in some sob story about how she still loves and cares for Lamar even though she’s currently in a relationship with someone else. There’s no point in trying to explain to me exactly why she’s still married to someone she broke up with years ago, all while she’s dated other people publicly since, because I won’t understand it.
-Two shows this week, “Supergirl,” and “NCIS” will show different episodes from what was supposed to originally air after the Paris attacks from this past weekend. Both episodes had storylines revolving around attacks on a city. Reminds of the premiere of “24” waaaaay back in 2001. The show was set to debut the week after 9/11, and if you remember, the premiere episode is pretty much all based around a plane exploding over the Mohave desert. Producers actually thought that was the end of their show and it’d never make air and was just horrible timing. Eventually, they ended up just pushing back the premiere a few weeks, and limited the footage they showed in the episode of the plane actually exploding, and the show went on to become a cultural phenomenon.
-E! Online posted Blake Shelton’s high school pictures and they are pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to look like. Nice mullet, buddy. Business in the front, party in the back Blake. Of course everybody can look back 20 to 30 years and see the fashion no-no’s back then, but the mullet was always something that didn’t make sense to me. But I wasn’t from the country, so maybe it shouldn’t have.
-After the new year, “Grease: Live” will be televised by Fox, and the promos have already begun. This one has celebrities from the Fox network trying to sing some of the famous songs from the movie. And fail miserably. I’m sorry, but if you don’t know the words to these songs, you should be fired:
-One of the few times I that I have read a headline and been completely wrong about what the story was really about. I mean, when you see a headline on US Weekly that reads: “Scott Disick in Talks to Make Money Using His Beard,” of course I’m gonna think that Scott came out of the closet. But apparently we’re supposed to take that headline literally. He’s going to make money promoting product for men. Man, could’ve fooled me.
-Cameron Diaz once posed nude early in her career, and now some magazine is releasing those pictures. I mean, after today’s pictures of Miley in all her glory, are these really that big of deal? Then again, ask yourself if you’ve ever seen the Joker naked before. The answer would be no, so I guess these pics could be pretty iconic.
-And finally, Soleil Moon Frye (aka Punky Brewster) is expecting her fourth child. Normally this wouldn’t be news, but when the three kids you already have are named Poet Sienna Rose, Jagger Joseph Blue, and Lyric Sonny Road, let the speculation begin on what f***ed up name this child will be burdened with.
