You know, I often think that if we normal people would just ignore all things Kardashian, the family would slowly fade into obscurity. Of course, I realize the irony of me wishing this would happen while blogging about them. I also realize it is never going to happen if non-normal (read: wacky celebs and "news correspondents") people keep giving them the time of day.
That said, I have an announcement to make. I am now watching Good Morning America for the first time ever. I don't know why I waited this long as I think George Stephanopoulos is hot, and I adore Amy Robach. The TODAY Show is dead to me. I'm sorry, Al Roker. I'll always think highly of you, as I know the show stripped you of extra time with your best pal Ann Curry, but to Matt Lauer (I blame you for Ann!) and the rest of the morning show's cronies, I say, for shame. (P.S. I still heart you, Willie Geist!)
A month after the headbutt that ended his marriage happened, Chad Johnson has been officially charged with misdemeanor battery against Evelyn Lozada!
The State Attorney for Broward County, Florida tells TMZ that If convicted, Chad faces up to a year in jail. Chad was arrested and Evelyn pressed charges against him following the incident. This is not his first offense; he was previous charged with domestic battery against a former girlfriend.
Last night on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo we were treated to more redneck living. It's sort of becoming an anthropology experiment at this point. This time we examined their diet in the wild. Don't these people have some pageants to do?
Anyway things begin with the local morning trek to mecca, aka the convenience store about 100 yards from their house. Mama, tired of the girls, ships them off to procure the daily necessities. Apparently Pumpkin often makes this journey styled in what the manager calls the "Bam Bam Look" – which means NO SHOES. Whatever happened to No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service?
Yes – the employees know them all by name as they're reg'lars at the slurpee machine. Pumpkin spends so many hours hanging out there Mama has to call her to come home. Wasn't this a Family Guy episode? Whaddya wanna bet Pumpkin manages that convenience store some day and then starts her own franchise. Dream big. Big as a pumpkin!
Just hours after VH1 announced the addition of Daphne Wayans to the season 2 cast of Hollywood Exes, Daphne took the time to chat with us about reality TV, motherhood, her friendship with her ex, and to share just how well she knows her co-stars.
Preparing for the interview was challenging because there is so little known about Daphne! There were no prior DUI's, no dramatic details about bitter divorce proceedings, no child custody battles or crazy interviews to be found! A real rarity in this business. All we knew about Daphne is that she was previously married to actor Keenen Ivory Wayans and that they share five children together: Jolie, Nala, Keenen Jr, Bella and Daphne.
I kicked off by asking Daphne if there was any truth to the rumor that she was originally meant to be part of season 1. She did confirm this as truth; she was part of the initial pitch for the show, but she simply got cold feet and decided to sit season 1 on the sidelines. What changed her mind for season 2? "The product speaks for itself. It is exactly what I was hoping it would be and even more. She says that what we see is the real deal. "That's the truth of it, that's not PR, that's not anything else."
One of the original reality stars, Jessica Simpson, has just shed a remarkable 40lbs a mere four months after giving birth to her daughter Maxwell. While we want to congratulate her success, we also want to snark on it because, well, that's what we (and you by extension) do!
The Fashion Show hostess has been using Weight Watchers and exercise to shed the baby weight. She's not at her goal yet, but she's still working hard to achieve her pre-baby body. I'm sure she'll be getting a few nip, tucks, and lipos in secret!
Jessica reportedly earned more than $4M to diet, which makes me very sad. I can't even earn $4.00 to diet, although I guess I could save that money if I gave up my morning latte – which is pretty much the same thing. Right? No, no it's not.
Geez Louise! It seems like lately all it takes for Kelsey Grammer to prove he's a giant bag of ouche-day is for him to just open open his mouth. He is definitely getting back at ex-wife and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille for that cross-dressing comment, isn't he?
After visiting with Oprah Winfrey where he debunked any rumors that he was anything but all man in the bedroom, Kelsey then spoke with Conan O'Brien about how he wasn't getting any from Camille in said bedroom…or anywhere else in their gaggle of pricey homes for that matter. When will celebrities learn that this isn't really the stuff we commoners want to hear?
