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.
