Heading out of town tomorrow, so there will not be a “Daily Links” tomorrow, Friday, or Monday. However, I will be releasing more contestants from Kaitlyn’s season in tomorrow’s column. Probably 4 more to bring the total to 15. I’ve got 23 of the 25, and the other two I just have first names on, but they are not important to the season. So look for that tomorrow. Since I have a story about Taylor Swift today, just so you know, my niece Olivia has been dying to see her in concert. I got her the tickets two months ago for the two of us to go in August, but haven’t told her yet. I’ll be letting her know tomorrow. Well lets be honest, the tickets are for me and I’m just letting her come along ha ha. So that’ll be interesting to see her reaction. I’m sure I’ll hear about it from tomorrow until the show at Staples Center in August. My first TSwift concert. I’m glad I can take an 11 year old with me to mask my T Sizzle obsession. Woulda been kinda creepy if I just went by myself. Will I have a sign with a bunch of cut outs of Taylor’s face? Perhaps. Hey, it’s my first concert of hers. Leave me alone.
Daily Links 4/8
-Nell Kalter’s RHOBH recap is up now. As you know I don’t watch the show, but how many episodes of a reunion show does one series need to have? Aren’t there like 417 reunion episodes or something? This can’t be healthy, can it?
-Chris Soules tells US Weekly about his life with Whitney since the “Bachelor” ended. Likes the relationship she has with Becca, his partner Witney, and even admits it’s been hard. I’m hearing the same things come from him that I’ve heard from numerous other couples, so we’ll see where this is going.
-On Monday, DWTS announced their summer tour. Well, now you have all the dates and cities they will be appearing in. And no, Chris you can just stay home. It’s really not necessary for you to make an appearance anywhere and be the worst dancer there by 10x. I give him an A for effort, but about a C- for execution.
-I’m not sure if this is just something she did for fun yesterday or what, but Julianne Hough dyed her hair pink. I guess we’ll see next Monday night if she keeps it, but ummmmm, yeah. It’s ugly. You’re on a national televised show happening once a week. You don’t need any more attention.
-I think it’s safe to say any story about Kendall and/or Kylie Jenner is going to make the “Daily Links.” Especially when Kylie teases she went and got her nipples pierced. Does that surprise any of us? I didn’t think so. I can only imagine the next thing getting pierced is.
-This might be the greatest study done of all time and I applaud the person who took the time to research this. I would’ve done it myself but, you know, I was busy. However, this is an important question us Americans have had for years, and it HAD to be answered. Which Reese’s candy has the most peanut butter? I’m a sucker for Reese’s peanut butter cups. They are my kryptonite. And no, not the 2-pack either. I need the 4-pack. Every. Time.
-Why is Taylor Swift the greatest? Because she responds to the tabloid trolls saying she and Lorde are fighting like this:
Media, when you say "Lorde & Taylor are fighting"-by fighting do you mean "FaceTiming constantly from US to NZ and LOLing at you"? Thnx bye

-Speaking of obsession for teenie bopper music, Katy Perry is in the news. Why? Because she got pajamas made with her dog Butters on them. I guess that’s why Katy will always be one rung above Taylor on my list. She’s a dog person, whereas Taylor is a cat lady. That’s a no-no.
-There’s a rumor going around that there will be a “She’s All That” reboot, which just might be the worst idea going. Then again, this is Hollywood and there are very few original scripts floating around. It’s reboot this, make a sequel to that, do a prequel to that show/movie. On and on and on it goes. You don’t mess with “She’s All That,” but I’m sure they will. Horrible.
-Sophia Bush was so inspired by Amy Schumer’s Entertainment Weekly cover where she went nude, that she decided to recreate one herself. Sophia, more of you naked is a good thing. Keep doing this. I’m sorry the whole thing with Chad Michael Douche didn’t work out and all, but hey, I’m available. If you wanna come to the Taylor Swift concert in August, I’m sure I could boot Olivia out of there. Kidding. I think.
-Taraji P. Henson is hosting SNL this week and here are the promos:
Can I just say one thing about her? EVERY SINGLE TIME I see her name, I keep thinking it’s Tajiri P. Henson. Every time. It drives me nuts. It’s like I don’t want to accept that her name is Taraji. Something is wrong with me.
-The Teletubbies are coming back to television. So if you didn’t think your kids suffered from ADD enough as it is, lets bring these prancing colorful whatever-they-are’s back into the fold. Wonderful. They weren’t even funny the first time around.
-Sofia Vergara would like everyone to know that she doesn’t have fake boobs. Yes, we’re aware. The more amazing part of the story is that she’s the highest paid actress on television. $325,000 an episode for “Modern Family,” when honestly, she’s about the 5th funniest person in that cast. So ladies, when they tell you sex appeal will only get you so far in life, they’re lying. Sofia Vergara is living proof of that. If she was a 32B instead of a 32F, I can guarantee you she wouldn’t be the highest paid actress on television.
-“Lip Sync Battle” is probably my new favorite show. There’s only been two episodes, but they’re quite entertaining. Well, the Biebs is on an upcoming episode (I think tomorrow’s) and he lip sync’s to Ozzy Osborne’s “Crazy Train.” The Rock beat Jimmy Fallon last week, along with Common beating John Legend. By the way, Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen really has no business being on that show other than for, you guessed, sex appeal.
-Michael Sam was eliminated from DWTS on Monday and talked about it with the media. Man, his dad seems like a real stand up guy, no? Geez. Sucks for Michael that his dad sold him out the way he did, but at least Michael didn’t let it affect him. As for his football career, unfortunately his measurable aren’t great, and I’d be pretty stunned if he ever has a significant impact in the NFL.
-And finally, well, Kylie. Again. This is the world we live in people. Kylie Jenner trips and falls at the beach, and it’s a headline story for US Weekly. Go figure.
