It’s been a while since I’ve had to go furniture shopping, and after my experience on Tuesday, it’s a good thing I don’t have to go again anytime soon. Holy crap. Now, part of it may be because I went to the newly opened Nebraska Furniture Mart that opened last month that’s about the size of Cowboy Stadium. I think the last place I got furniture at was Rooms-To-Go, so needless to say, I had a much bigger selection at NFM. Which basically led me to be there over 3 hours because I couldn’t decide what I wanted. I needed a new sofa, but then you see all the sofa sets they have with chaise lounges, and you realize you can’t possibly go in there, get a sofa, then leave. Impossible. You need things to coordinate with it. So me stupidly thinking I was just going to get a new sofa turned into me walking out of there 3 hrs later having purchased a new sofa, recliner, coffee table, two end tables, and two lamps. Not being delivered until Tuesday, but I gotta say, I’m pretty impressed with what I was able to color coordinate and match up (No, the picture attached to this column is not the sofa I bought. But it was one of many in the running). Just call me the Mr. Martha Stewart. My interior decorating is on point. You need your living room refurnished? Gimmie a call.
Daily Links 4/30
-Meghan Trainor is collaborating on a duet with Harry Styles, and she’s freaking out about it. Well, at least maybe now Meghan will have a song that doesn’t repeat her chorus 4,000 times and actually has some lyrics to it. One can only dream.
-As you know, I don’t watch any of the Housewives shows, but given how much time I spend reading entertainment sites, it’s not hard to have an idea of who’s in the news more often than not. Safe to say Kim Richards is one of the hottest messes ever, as evidenced by her appearance on Dr. Phil. Someone take the bottle away from Kim please.
-It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for 3 Questions for Jeff Probst on EW.com. Man, he took an awfully long time trying to explain Will and Dan’s behavior in that first question. I think he’s starting to backtrack on things he said earlier this season. Why not just say, “Dan is an ass who said things he shouldn’t have” rather than go on that diatribe?
-For some behind-the-scenes of DWTS 10th anniversary show, check out Jessica Radloff’s column for Glamour.com. The thing that surprised me most was for a show on 10 years and 20 seasons, they only did an hour special. Seemed a bit short. Not to mention the awful editing since it was taped the week prior. How many quick shots of audience members laughing that were completely shown at different parts did they have? Like 100? Did they think this was the “Women Tell All” or something?
-Wanna know what Demi Lovato’s gynecologist asks her? Or how about the woman that’s lasering her vajayjay? Fascinating stuff I tell you. Although that does have to be awkward as a celebrity to have that happen. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before Demi gets “Property of Wilmer” tattooed on the small of her back.
-I completely forgot that Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield broke up. Or did they? Pictures yesterday of her carrying a bag with his name on it. What is she? His personal assistant? I highly doubt these two aren’t having ex sex if she’s carrying around bags with his name on it. Good on you, Andrew.
-Another celebrity decided to dye her hair pink. One thing that stands out to me the most in this story is the fact that they didn’t refer to her as Kaley Cuoco Sweeting, since that’s her now married name. With recent breakup reports surfacing, I find that interesting. Not to mention my thoughts on celebrity marriages where the woman is infinitely more of a celebrity than the man never seem to work. Like, ever. Good luck you two.
-Those hoping for a “Friends” reunion can quit holding your breath. According to Courteney Cox, that just ain’t happening and you can blame it all on one person: David Schwimmer. If Ross wasn’t a big enough p***y on the show, now he’s being one in real life. Way to ruin it for everyone Ross. You’re nobody’s lobster anymore.
-Hilary Duff is starting to date random dudes on Tinder and is telling everyone about it. She went bowling on a Tinder date? Hilary, let me fill you in o something. As much as I’d like to date you, I’m afraid if we did you wouldn’t appreciate me kicking your ass at bowling. It’s kinda my thing. I mean, when you got it, you got it. Sorry, but I show no mercy at the lanes.
-A lot going on in the Kardashian world nowadays, and here’s a story that has me confused. Not that we haven’t heard this rumor for years that Robert Kardashian isn’t really Khloe’s father, but apparently she told Lamar she knows he isn’t her dad and this is going to be revealed on the season finale? Huh? I would think this would be a bigger story if Khloe is telling everyone she knows he’s not her father, so I’m guessing this isn’t true. He certainly doesn’t look to be her father since she looks nothing like him or her sisters. But she told Lamar in private? Ummmm, ok.
-What would a “Daily Links” be without an update on Bruce? Wanna know what Bruce likes best about being a woman? He likes wearing heels and doing his hair more than anything. If you thought Bruce’s interview with Diane Sawyer was a big deal, just wait until he finally makes his “official” gender reveal whenever that is.
-Scarlett Johannsen is your host for SNL this week. Here are her promos. Ummm, when did she go to the pixie cut and when is it going away? Thanks.
-Uh oh. Major happenings in T Swift land. Calvin Harris has met her cats. That’s a big deal. Like, a HUGE deal. Especially in Taylor’s world since she never stops talking about her cats which essentially makes me lose faith in a future relationship with her.
-The Biebs is going to make a cameo in “Zoolander 2.” Will I be crucified if I say that I’ve never seen the original? Ben Stiller is hit and miss for me. Some of his stuff I love (“Dodgeball,” “Meet the Fockers,” “There’s Something About Mary”), then there’s pretty much everything else he’s done. Can’t say I’m gonna rush out and see this one.
-Speaking of more sequels, looks like they’re heading for a female version of “21 Jump Street.” Now this I could get behind if they cast the right twosome. Why do I feel like it’s a no-brainer Melissa McCarthy will somehow be cast in this? Isn’t this pretty much right up her alley?
-And finally, today’s sports story revolves yesterday’s bizarre Orioles/White Sox game played in front of no one. With everything going on in Baltimore, the game was closed to the public. What I didn’t understand is that plenty of people were still across the street watching the game through the fence. They couldn’t have let those people in. Obviously they were close enough to watch the game themselves so it’s not like the area was shut down. Why not just let them into the game? The whole situation down there is a complete mess. However it was totally bizarre watching that game on TV yesterday. Amazing how much different a game on TV is with absolutely no crowd noise.
