You know how I feel about social media. It’s not going anywhere, it’s part of our every day lives, and can be very beneficial in our daily lives. It also has a downside which can be just about the worst thing ever at times. But yesterday after a couple weeks of annoying tweets, I’d pretty much had it. I know, I know, first world problems. But hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. I’m fine if people want to tweet things about me about my site or my column in a negative tone. It happens. I don’t block people like that. However, the annoying ones are those that constantly include my Twitter name in conversations with other people. There hasn’t been a bigger group that’s done that over the last 2 weeks than Britt fans. I mean holy Jesus, you have no idea how annoying these people are. I get that people have their favorites out there, but this clan takes it to a whole other level. These people aren’t even directing statements/questions towards me. They just like saying how Britt walks on water, she should be the “Bachelorette,” and trash Kaitlyn any chance they can get. Not to mention if anyone tweets anything negative about Britt, they immediately attack them. So that’s not for me. If you incessantly include my name in tweets, you’re blocked. Just putting it out there.
-Every once in a while you get a story that makes absolutely no sense. This is one of those times. Someone had sex. Fine. You say, “Steve, that’s not a story. People have sex all the time.” And yes, you’d be correct. People do have sex all the time. Except this dude had sex with a dolphin. Now what do you say? C’mon buddy. Really? Just when you think people couldn’t get any weirder, some dude is out banging Flipper. Disgusting.
-There really isn’t much of a reason to post this next video for no other than it involves Tiffani Amber Theissen. I’m sorry, I know she took off the “Amber” years ago but I don’t care. She will always be Tiffani Amber Theissen to me. And only one of these questions is about “Saved by the Bell,” but that’s enough for me.
-Jon Cryer admitted that when he was going through a divorce, he went to co-star Charlie Sheen for a little help. A shoulder to cry on? No. Someone to talk to? Not really. Maybe a little spiritual guidance? Not quite. No, Sheen helped set Cryer up with a hooker. “Keep smiling…keep shining…knowing you can always count on me…for sure…that’s what friends are for!”
-Patrick Schwarzenegger’s relationship with Miley has taken a turn for the worse since he went down to Cabo and started taking body shots off a chick he claims is a close friend. Now comes word that Miley actually hung out with this girl back at a USC game before. So either this chick is the smartest girl in the world pretending to befriend Miley all while knowing she was banging her dude behind her back, or, she’s just a skank. You make the call.
-Robin Thicke’s divorce was finally granted and should be finalized next month. I can’t imagine why these two didn’t work out. She’s ridiculously hot and he likes having sex with women that aren’t his wife. Doesn’t seem to be the right recipe for a healthy marriage, but hey, what do I know?
-I know you’re not going to believe this, but busty DWTS contestant Charlotte McKinney did a racy photo shoot that accentuated her breasts. Shocking, right? This is the same chick that in her intro video this past Monday night said she didn’t want to be known for just her breasts, then did a whole feature about her breasts. Some women just don’t get it.
-So yesterday People ran the story about how Robert Herjavec contemplated suicide after separating from his wife of 25 years earlier this year. Then the flirtatious intro video on DWTS and subsequent story they were cozy at the after party on Monday night. Well, 3 days later, and E! apparently has confirmed Robert and his partner Kym Johnson are absolutely a couple. I mean, are we really surprised by this? Wealthy older man fresh off a divorce jumping right in to something much younger and hotter? When this isn’t the norm in Hollywood, then I’ll be surprised.
-Liza Minnelli has checked herself into rehab. Again. I don’t know how many times that is for Liza, but I think I’ve run out of finger and toes to count them on. Honestly, I haven’t looked at how many times she’s been in, but I’ve only known the trainwreck Liza as long as I’ve been alive, so I just assume it’s over 20.
-The fact that Kevin James’ baby announcement was a story today, isn’t really news. He and his wife had their fourth child. What is surprising is that this child was born in January! You know you’re kinda low on the Hollywood totem pole when your baby announcement on US Weekly happens over 6 weeks after the baby is born. But hey, “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” is coming to a theater near you soon, so I guess there’s that.
-Good two hr episode of “Survivor” last night. Our “Survivor” recapper Bryan Fischer’s column will be up later today, so check it out. To hold you over until then, Jeff Probst answers his weekly questions for EW.com. Always a good read every Thursday. Probst is the best at what he does.
-Peter Facinelli is engaged to Jaimie Alexander. Great. 3 Thoughts:
1) Jaimie, stop spelling your name with 2 “I’s.” Frankly it’s annoying.
2) Peter, you will always be Jennie Garth’s ex-husband to all of us. She chose you over Brandon and Dylan and that’s not acceptable.
3) And Peter, I don’t care what role you played in “Twilight,” you will always and forever be Mike Dexter from “Can’t Hardly Wait” who dumped Jennifer Love Hewitt only to beg for her back and get rejected because she wanted to date some nerd who wrote her a love letter freshman year, in one of the most unrealistic yet awesomest movies ever. I think that was the movie that put JLH’s breasts on the map.
-Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper argued about “Fashion Police”, because, of course they did. Enough said.
-Another shocking story, but you’ll never believe that Kate Gosselin is a crappy mother. Really? Gee, and I thought she had a “Mother of the Year” award in her future?
-The weirdness continues. Some guy in North Carolina likes to hang out at his house naked. And he’s allowed to. Note to self: Move to North Carolina.
-And finally, in honor of “March Madness” beginning in just moments, at some point today, take the time to watch this excellent “30 for 30” piece ESPN did on the Princeton/Georgetown game in 1989. The reason “March Madness” got it’s name and the reason you are filling out brackets and able to watch all the games all day long can basically be traced back to this game. This started it all. If you’re a college basketball nut like myself, you will love this piece.
That’s it. I’m off to watch 10 straight hours of college basketball. Greatest sporting event of the year, hands down. Basketball coma. Love it.
