Back from a week layoff. Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. I was in New York for my cousin’s wedding, and let me tell you, it was unlike anything I’d ever been a part of. Granted, I haven’t been to a ton of weddings in my life, so I don’t have too much to compare it to, but it was my first experience at a real Italian wedding. Holy bejesus. I’ve never been served that much food at a wedding before in my life. It wasn’t even close. The 12 different table stands of food they had at the cocktail hour, the 5 course dinner, the cake, and then topped off with a Venetian Hour Dessert Table? What the hell? I’d never even heard of that before. I ate so much at the cocktail hour that by the time dinner rolled around, I was stuffed…yet still managed to fight through and eat pretty much every course. It was full on craziness. I’m still reeling from all that caloric intake. I should be fine by next summer. Anyway, fun times all around, and thanks to everyone who came out to the Ainsworth on Saturday night for the get together. I appreciate it. Now, back to the grind. Somewhat.
This is actually the slowest part of the year for me because there’s no filming for any of the shows going on now, and I’m not doing any recaps. Outside of the couple weeks from the ending of “Bachelorette” filming to their start date, it’s the only time of the year where I have NOTHING “Bachelor” related going on. Think about it:
-“Bachelor” airs January through mid March
-“Bachelorette” begins immediately filming same week “Bachelor” ends
-“Bachelorette” airs end of May through end of July
-“Bachelor in Paradise” airs end of July through mid September
-“Bachelor” films mid September through mid November
So now you know how this is a full-time job. There’s basically only 8 weeks out of the year where I’m not either writing about the show as it’s airing, or spoiling it as it’s being filmed. These last 6 weeks of the year after “Bachelor” is done filming are my biggest break where I don’t have recaps and I’m not spoiling anything because, well, I’ve already given you everything for the season in Ben’s episode-by-episode spoilers. I’m sure you’ve read and digested them by now. The only “Bachelor” stuff now is waiting for the bios to get released (probably a couple more weeks) so I can write my annual “Bio Breakdown” column the next day. Then waiting for the first episode to come online so I can spoil the first episode in detail for you. Until then, “Daily Links” every day until about Dec. 22nd when I’m in CA for Christmas.
-Nell Kalter has your Vanderpump Rules recap now up for your viewing. Is Jax still banging like 7 different girls at one time on that show? Not that I watch it, but I always hear that guys name and what a Grade A douchelord he is. So you know, I’m curious to see if he’s kept that status.
-If she wasn’t already insufferable enough, Anne Hathaway is pregnant. Ok fine, I honestly don’t think she’s that bad, but the rest of Hollywood seems to think so. I actually don’t mind her. Granted, I’ve maybe seen two movies she’s ever been in, so I guess I don’t have much to go on, but whatever. Shoot me that I’ve never seen “The Devil Wears Prada,” or the “Princess Diaries.” I’m not a 14 year old girl, although, I do have the musical taste of one.
-Since T Swift is finishing up her 1989 tour in Australia right now, she decided to take a mini vacation to New Zealand with family. Ummmmm, excuse me? Is there a reason I wasn’t invited to this? Yes, I’m not family. I get that. But she could at least extend the invite to like her biggest fan ever, no? It’s ok Tay Tay, your birthday is in 12 days, so I’ll fully be expecting an invite to join you and the squad for that.
-Someone who I hope never becomes part of her squad, Kylie Jenner, decided to dye her hair green because, well, apparently she thought she wasn’t already getting enough attention. Even though the mere thought of her and Tyga breaking up had the tabloids scurrying for every bit of info they could come up with. Nice hair, Kylie. You look f***ing stupid.
-Channing Tatum has beef with one of his “Magic Mike” co-stars, Alex Pettyfer. Basically, he hates the guy. And Alex doesn’t blame him since he acted like an elistist a-hole on set. No wonder why he wasn’t invited back for the 2nd movie. Kick his ass, Channing.
-CBS yesterday announced the midseason return of “Survivor” and a couple of their other shows. “Survivor” returns Wednesday, Feb. 17th with season 32, which was actually filmed before the current season of “Second Chances” earlier this year. It’s a “Brains vs Brawn vs Beauties” season again, and you can read about the cast and some tidbits (no spoilers) here.
-Another “Batman vs Superman” trailer is out, and this is probably the best one yet. Why? Because Batman is chained up in a cave, and Superman rips his mask off! It’s like the final scene in any Scooby Doo episode except, well, we all know who Batman is already. The dude that was banging his nanny and got a divorce. I wonder if Superman is gonna give him shi** for that.
-We’re only 17 days away now from the whole world coming to a complete halt when “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is released. JJ Abrams talks about how now Princess Leia is a General. Whoa. Big move there, Leia. Aren’t you the special one? I think we all just want to know when and how many times you and Han consummated your relationship and do you have any kids running around now? And are they good or evil? And did Luke ever get laid and reproduce? Lets hope JJ does a better job at answering these questions than he did in the “Lost” finale.
-Jessica Simpson is out flaunting her athletic apparel line. Damn. Remember when she was the “it” girl. Ummmm, what happened? I know she got married and had kids, but like, is that the plan for the rest of her life? Is she ever gonna sing again? Act? Do anything other than appear on an informercial at 4 in the morning? It’d be nice to see her do something other than pop out babies. But hey, that’s just me.
-People.com decided to dedicate a whole column to what the new nickname should be for Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik. Considering these two will be broken up within months releasing a joint statement saying something to the effect of, “…their schedules just didn’t match up,” how about we not give them a nickname? I guess now we know why Zayn left “One Direction.” To get divorced and chase as much tail as possible. #BecauseZaynleft
-Brielle Zolciak is the 18 year old daughter of Kim Zolciak in case you didn’t know. She’s basically a spitting image of her mother in every sense of the word. Look, I get she’s 18 and she can do whatever the hell she wants whenever she wants. But this is already heading in the wrong direction. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. “Dr. Drew will see you now, Brielle.”
-I knew that Miss Universe Olivia Culpo somewhat recently broke up with Nick Jonas after two years, but had no idea she had started dating Tim Tebow. Well, not anymore. And apparently it’s because she wasn’t getting any. Of course, a report came out later yesterday after this story appeared which denied that was the main reason, but c’mon…we all know it was.
-And finally, if last night wasn’t a perfect microcosm of the Cleveland Browns franchise, I don’t know what was. This tweet pretty much summed up what it’s like to be a Browns fan.
