Look, I don’t think Keyshawn or Bill Nye are any good at dancing. Their performances over the first two weeks showed it. Neither had zero chance of winning this thing. However, still pretty shocked to see Keyshawn being the first one to go. I’m sure he’ll get a lot of ribbing from all the former athletes (most notably the football players) who’ve been on this show, especially considering how well they all did. Man, going home first sucks. And when you’re a former football player, and guys like Warren Sapp, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and Jason Taylor all paved the way before you? Ouch. I wouldn’t want to be Keyshawn right about now. Sure, he tried and was completely out of his comfort zone, but that was pretty bad to be beaten out by the Science Guy. Go join Jeff Ross and Kenny Mayne in the “One and Done” club. They’re anxiously awaiting your arrival.
Couple notes on the “Bachelor” season, plus a couple new girls will be posted on Thursday, so be on the lookout for that.
-Even though we never even saw a picture of this guy, nor even knew what his name, Miss Sparkle Tierra LiCausi, claimed during her “Women Tell All” season that she was engaged. Well, not anymore as the engagement is over. If someone could ever produce a picture of these two together or a name of this guy, then I’ll maybe believe she was ever engaged. Maybe.
-We almost had a day with no Miley stories. As of last night, I had nothing. But then of course I wake up this morning and see she’s topless on the cover of “Rolling Stone” this week. Miley, you never seem to disappoint. Someone needs to stage an intervention. No, not because she can’t keep her clothes on. Did you read that article? Why does she talk like she’s from the hood now?
-Man, and to think I was all excited about Britney’s 2 year deal she signed with Planet Hollywood to do 50 shows a year, come to find out it seems that no one cares, as her ticket sales are in the toilet.
-Your Emmy ratings are in and they’re some of the best numbers they’ve pulled in years.
-People will say their favorite Emmy moment was the dance number. Some will say Will Ferrell appearing with his kids. Others probably liked the tributes to people who have died in the past year (unless you’re Jack Klugman’s son). Not not me. My favorite Emmy moment from Sunday? Tina Fey’s nip slip of course.
-Just so more women can be jealous of her, Jessica Alba now says she was self-conscious about her body. Real shocking to hear that someone who’s essentially a 10 had body image issues. Don’t they all say that?
-As you heard last night, Julianne Hough is going to be a guest judge on DWTS this season filling in for Len at least once while he’s in the UK. Here were some of the other dancers reaction to the news.
-Another cast member from “Grey’s Anatomy” is running their mouth. Really surprising to see it’s the woman whose face always looks like she just sucked a lemon dry. Congrats on the racial diversity of your cast, Ellen. Doesn’t change the fact that through the years, most of your cast have acted like pompous a**holes.
-One thing I enjoy about the Emmy’s are hearing stories about some of the after parties. Well, here’s my favorite one. Three words: Sofia Vergara twerking. You’re welcome.
-Lets be honest, the Emmy’s are essentially a popularity contest for what’s “hot” right now, or, something that TV execs want to make hot by giving it an award. There’s zero logical explanation for the “Voice” to win Best Reality Show upsetting “Amazing Race” (the only show that’s ever won the award), when “American Idol” never won all those years it was drawing 30 million people an episode. Ridiculous.
-Reading that NCIS is looking into a spinoff series. Ummm, doesn’t that franchise already have 17 different spinoffs already? How many more do we need?
-A few sports stories to get to. Interesting piece in the LA Times about Kobe’s future with the Lakers. Some of you may not care. Most of you probably don’t. But I’m sure interested. I’ll say this: If Kobe is truly serious about winning more championships in LA, then he won’t ask the Lakers for $30 million a season. He can’t possibly do that with a straight face, then expect them to field a championship team around him when he’s already taken up half their salary cap. Yes, he deserves to be paid more than anyone. But c’mon. How much is enough. He’s banked 17 years of contracts, not to mention numerous endorsement deals. This will be the lasting image on his legacy. If he wants to win, and win with the Lakers, he’ll do what MJ did towards the end of his career and just sign one year deals for about $10-12 million so they team can spend around him.
-So last week I made fun of the Dbacks for getting upset that the Dodgers jumped in their outfield pool after winning the NL West by saying “at least they didn’t take a leak in it.” Uhhhh, now reports are that they did. Idiots. Now THAT is classless.
-Remember yesterday when I gave you the link to truly one of the worst injuries I’d ever read about? Well late yesterday, Rashad Johnson decided to tweet pictures of his finger for the world to see. If you just ate, I suggest you not look. Pretty gruesome.
-I’m all for a good end zone dance, and Lions tight end Joseph Fauria might’ve broken out my favorite one yet this past Sunday. Nsync anyone?
