Daily Links 3/31

I’m going to use the first paragraph in today’s column and tomorrow’s column to talk about the same thing because it’s important you remember/know this. Tomorrow is April Fool’s. So when you wake up in the morning and immediately begin reading Twitter or any other news story, just keep that in mind because most sites will be trying to prank you with fake stories. Guaranteed. It’s coming. You’ve been warned. I will not be doing so. Will just be a regular “Daily Links” column with maybe some info on the “Bachelorette” filming happening today. But all these sites that will run bogus stories like “Justin Bieber Being Deported,” or “Britney and K-Fed Back Together” will be fooling the gullible all across the world. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you. The first thing I check when I get up in the morning for my news is usually Twitter. I just know tomorrow there will be a lot of stories that are made up, so just consider this a friendly reminder not to be fooled by unfunny, untrue, and bad attempt at humor stories you will inevitably see tomorrow on some of your favorite sites. You’re welcome.

Yesterday, the “Bachelorette” arrived in San Antonio to begin filming episode 5. Someone on Twitter was able to get a picture of a lot of the guys standing around near the RiverWalk.

I can tell you that there are more than 9 guys left in San Antonio, so this was either a group date, or this person just happened to get a picture of a lot of the guys – just not all of them. If there were any doubt to my spoiler that Nick was still on this show, well, here’s your confirmation. He’s smack dab in the middle of the guys looking as miserable as ever. I guess I would too knowing that all the guys probably hate me. I’ve got every guy in the picture identified. Some I’ve given you and some I’ve yet to release. Patience my friends. You’ll get them eventually. No need to release it all right now, since there’s quite a few things I’ve yet to share. You’ll get it eventually. We’ve got plenty of time before the premiere on May 18th. Ok fine, I’ll give you one thing that I’m hearing: Apparently Kaitlyn is giving Chris Soules and Bob Guiney a run for their money in terms of how many guys she’s making out with. She ain’t holding back, that’s for sure.

-Anyone wondering how hard Josh is taking the break up with Andi? I know it’s been a couple months but sometimes stuff with this lingers and you have a hard time moving on. Ummm, not Josh apparently. He was asked at the IHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday night if he misses Andi. He gave about as clear and precise of an answer as you can get. Thanks for that, Josh. Tell us how you really feel.

-Seems like we’ve been talking about this for month’s, but the Justin Bieber Roast finally aired on Comedy Central last night. US Weekly recapped what they thought were the 10 funniest jokes. However we know comedy is subjective, and I thought there were better ones than that. Also, E! has some behind-the-scenes stuff that you didn’t see. The weirdest part of the whole night was Justin. He barely laughed. It almost seemed like every joke went over his head. Jeffrey Ross absolutely destroyed him. If you missed it last night, just go set your DVR to record one of the next 100 times it’ll probably air this week. It’s worth it.

-Any of you curious as to how Bruce Jenner’s gender transformation is going? Well, Radar has the exclusive of how he went and got himself some new breasts. Outstanding. Thank you for that. I didn’t know how I was going to continue on with the rest of my day but now I do. Face down into the toilet.

-Is there a reason that Hilary Duff decided to go with blue hair? She realizes she’s not 18 and this isn’t Halloween right? And how many tattoos does she have? Let me give a word of advice to anyone, male or female, looking to get a giant thigh tattoo: Don’t. You look like a moron. There. I feel better now.

-Jenny McCarthy lasted like 7 minutes as one of the co-hosts of “The View,” and now she’s speaking out about it. She appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday and basically said she’d be shocked if the show was still around in a year. You think? You mean when a TV show changes their host schedule every 6 months that’s not a good sign?

-Exclusive sneak peek at tomorrow night’s “Nashville” as Rayna and Deacon get into it. Oh boy. This doesn’t look good. We don’t want these two fighting. And nooooooo!!!! Not the guitar!!!!! Isn’t it obvious that either Rayna or Maddie is gonna end up being Deacon’s liver donor, or is that way too easy?

-Khloe Kardashian, now back together with no-name French Montana, decided to share her favorite beauty products because, well, she probably makes money by doing so. I don’t think anything any of the Kardashians do isn’t motivated by how much money they can make. But hey, if you want to wear the makeup that Khloe does, there’s the list. Go to Sephora and stock up.

-Don’t forget we are 2 days away from “Lip Sync Battle” on Spike TV debuting. I’ve mentioned this in previous columns, but here’s another little clip that was released yesterday. Derek and Julianne Hough battling against each other. Derek’s looks cheesy. Julianne’s looks like I’ll need a cold shower afterwards.

-Oh wonderful. Live musicals on network TV aren’t going anywhere. After the “Sound of Music” and the embarrassing “Peter Pan,” NBC’s announced this year’s live musical will be “The Wiz.” Awesome. Another one I won’t be tuning into. And when is Fox’s live musical of “Grease” airing? Hasn’t that one been talked about for over a year now? I’m waiting patiently for that thing to drop. Sure, I’m guessing it won’t touch the movie in terms of its awesomeness, but sure as hell can’t be any worse than “Sound of Music” and “Peter Pan,” can it?

-Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato are collaborating together in a new project. No, not making babies. At least not yet. He’s going to direct her in something and it’s their first time working together that didn’t involve a bedroom and under the sheets. And it will be something I absolutely cannot wait to not watch. Looking forward to it.

-Last night Van Halen played on “Jimmy Kimmel” and shut down Hollywood Blvd. I think we all knew that Valerie Bertinelli was once with Eddie Van Halen (or still is), but did any of you know their son is now the bass player for Van Halen and has been for 8 years? Mind. Blown. Anyway, Eric Stonestreet from “Modern Family” was recording the performance last night when Valerie wouldn’t move her big head.

-Katie Holmes attended the “Kids Choice Awards” this past weekend with Suri and looked like this. Katie has been divorced from Tom for a few years now, right? Is it too much to ask that she actually gets back into acting or something? Geez. Does the Xenu God still have a grasp on her career or something? Give us a “Dawson’s Creek” movie or something. Anything.

-And finally, domestic violence is becoming a huge issue in this country. Especially after the Ray Rice incident, America seems to be paying more attention to it now than it ever did before. It’s no laughing matter. It needs to end. Although, when you get a story about a wife stabbing her husband because he ate all the salsa, don’t tell me you didn’t chuckle just a little bit. Sick people.

    Interviewer: Josh, do you miss being with Andi?
    Josh: No.

    Helluva’n article. Deserves a Pulitzer in my opinion. Glad I took time to click on that link.

    Sorta’ happy Nick is back. I think he got a bad rap at the After.

    Josh was also in the audience with Whitney at DWTS last night.

    Josh did comment on the article about wanting to be The Bachelor. Sounds like he’s keeping his options open just in case the guys all turn out to be a bunch of Ben Flatdicks. Good luck with that Josh. They took Juan Pah-blow two seasons ago and Old McDonald last year over going outside the immediately preceding season…. and despite having two leads that can barely speak the English language, their ratings were better than Sean “Mr Perfects” season. Go figure, I know. Sometimes it’s counter intuitive and what seems stupid is really smart. That’s the world of reality TV.

    Thanks for the warning about April Fools Day Steve. Don’t know what I’d do….or fall for, without your heads up. #grateful.

    If you can get past someone in that short amount of time it makes me wonder how much you were into that person in the first place. What a sad love triangle Josh, Andi and Nick turned out to be! Don’t fool yourself people, he is trying to remain in the spotlight to get a chance at being “The Bachelor.” If he gets the gig I bet it won’t last, though.

    I don’t know about this whole Nick thing. I personally think he wanted on the show NOT for Kaitlyn, but a chance to be booted some time before the final two so he can have a shot as the next Bachelor. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

    Whitney looked good with Josh. I think she needs a man who can stimulate her intellectual!y, if that is what she has in Chris.

    This show reminds me a little of the “Swept Away” movie by Lina Wertmuller. A man and woman from opposite ends of the social spectrum were shipwrecked on an island and became passionate. Rescued, and brought back to the ‘real’ world, the rose colored glasses were off and they fell back into their old roles. And went their separate ways.

    And Nick? Why he would want to do this again?? The money is good as “The Bachelor,” but still…..

    Why would Nick be on the show? It’s been a very long time since people really came on this show for love. Oh, there are some delusional exceptions, but for the vast majority all about getting their mugs on TV. We see the beat downs they take in the media, especially when presented with the dreaded “bad edit”. And, of course, Nick’s edit all went bad on the last episode. But, they see the attention they get, D List celebrity status, the girls that suddenly become available to them and the potential for more…. and dream of becoming the next Bachelor.

    Maybe you and I’d like to think we’re above all that. But, I can imagine that while a healthy ego gets you to apply to be on the show, actually getting there and experiencing the sudden “fame” can be intoxicating. Of course, the vast majority of them have zero real talent, but there are a lot of places these days for people to exist (for a while) without talent. I.e. DWTS, BIP, Couples Therapy, Blogging, etc. Eventually all of them, with the exception of Jesse Palmer …. and you have to give Jesse credit. He turned a decent college career at Florida, a 3rd string QB role with the Giants and a Bachelor appearance into a solid commentator role with ESPN. Genius. He was the first to really exploit the opportunity…… the rest end up being forgotten. It’s kind of sad really. Fame is intoxicating. Lost fame must be really depressing. I wonder if that factored into Gia’s suicide. Not trying to be disrespectful, but I really wonder what it does to a person when they are once again, off the fame radar, and have to return to their normal lives.

    How much per episode does the bachelor get?
    Are the girls given an allowance of any kind?

    @rob22, Not that you would ever give a darn about offending anyone. but I find it offensive that you add blogger to your list of “people with no talent”. I happen to be a blogger in addition to many other things I do very well. The fact that I can support my three children as a single mother is a talent in and of itself. Being able to work from home is a bonus.
    When I see people telling Steve to get a “real job”, I can’t help but laugh because he probably makes more money than all of the haters put together. People used to tell me the same thing. Needless to say, they shut their traps when they see I am actually doing BETTER than they are. So, those of you who don’t know what it really entails to be a successful blogger, please zip your lips. You’re making yourselves look foolish.
