The Short But Sweet Edition

A recent article in Entertainment Weekly referred to Jesse James as "the Most Hated Man in America". While Sanda Bullock has been referred to as "America's Sweetheart", I think it's pushing it a little much to say he is the most hated man. He cheated. But he isn't the only one. Look at Tiger Woods? In all the backlash against Woods, he was never called any thing that harsh. And Tiger cheated too. ALOT!

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery with Bret Michaels. Last week he complained of severe headaches so he went to the hospital. He had a brain hemmorage. He isn't in the clear yet either. According to doctors he has been in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition. So like I said, hopefully he recovers.

The Censored Edition

Matt Stone and Trey Parker, co-creators of South Park, have found themselves in trouble once again. The last two episodes (episodes 200-201) deal with celebrities suing the town unless they can get Mohammed's special power (long story). They dress the prophet Mohammed in a bear suit, which of course offended Muslims, naturally. Because if we know anything, Muslims have no sense of humor. Comedy Central had to censor episode 201 and seems to have also pulled episode 200 as well. Stone and Parker both received death threats from a Muslim Group located... in New York City. Oh the irony there.

There is quite the sordid Soap Opera happening in Larry King's life these days. Looks like Larry might be getting divorced for the 7th time (once again I have to point out that it should be celebrity marriage getting banned, not gay marriage. But that's just me) because he is in love with his wife's sister. While his wife is having an affair with their sons baseball coach. You wonder if all 4 of them just deceided to have one big... sleep over? It might just make it easier for everyone involved.

It's been a while since I randomly mentioned it, so Avatar! Oh yeah, and it's on DVD right now.

Further proof that we have run out of original ideas... There is talk of remaking the Dudley Moore movie Arthur. Apparently the role will be played by Russell Brand. I can understand that. It all ready sounds like he is drunk everytime he opens his mouth. And I say this admittingly cause I am a fan of Russell Brand. Playing opposite him will be Dame Judi Dench. Talk about polar opposites!

And finally.... Lets have a moment of silence. Kate Gosselin, the first non-celebrity ever to appear on Dancing With The Stars, has been eliminated. That atleast gives her a chance to go prepare for the 19,000 other shows she will appear on in the very near future. Twist of Kate? Really? A & E? Really???

The 20th Edition.... Edition.

When Conan O'Brien was forced out of the Tonight Show, it seemed almost certain he would wind up doing a show on Fox. After all, he started there as a writer on The Simpsons. But then TBS stepped in. So coming to a TBS near you in November will be an unnamed Talk show starring Coco, Conan O'Brien. This week it was also announced that Kevin Eubanks will be stepping down as Jay Leno's bandleader. I'd call this the worst week in Leno's career. And the best in all of ours! :)

A recently published book stated that John Tesh used to date Oprah Winfrey. Tesh has stepped forward to admit that rumor is true. However before you get all excited and start thinking of a name for the power couple, it was before they were famous. It is still an interesting idea if you think about it.

Normally I think the 2nd worse idea on TV is reality TV. The only thing worse then that in my opinion is Washed up Celeb Reality TV. But like a train wreck, somehow I can't resist watching Celebrity Apprentice. Where else will former Wrestler Bill Goldberg face off against Cyndi Lauper? Bret Michaels vs Holly Robinson Peete.

I finally saw the Trailer for the A-Team. Quite honestly, I am not impressed. I will file this under the same category as the last GI Joe Movie. It was a good action movie but nothing like what I remember as a child.
