An oldie, but damn goodie (May, 2011).
KTLA’s Allie MacKay & Co. go to the edge and beyond with what’s become a classic morning news segment.
The video quickly went viral.
It pulled in a couple million views in just three days or so. That’s before the station’s Chief Exec had it pulled from YouTube, and sent each member of the morning team an official reprimand.
Obviously, it lives on elsewhere.
Gone are the days when Janet Jackson’s junk-shot during Superbowl halftime raised eyebrows (and the ire of the FCC).
These days, smart stars & starlets are hitting the high beems to stay in the spotlight. To paraphrase the words of Auntie Mame, “when you’re desperate for stardom, you’ve got to DO something!”
So come with us on a stroll down Mammary Lane, as we look at some “unintentional” instances of celebrity overexposure that have happened over the years.
How dare she?
How dare Taylor Swift publicly hit the spin cycle and air John Mayer’s dirty laundry. Specifically, taking a musical jab at John with a six minute song about how the self-described douchebag deflowered the then 19 year old.
Mayer, whose song “Your Body is a Wonderland” is (allegedly) about his sinful sessions with Jennifer Love Hewitt, is whining to Rolling Stone about the way Taylor landed a low blow by writing and recording the song “Dear John,” which dealt with the way he (allegedly) manipulated the once-innocent performer into opening her vadge for his teensy peen.
“I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he says about the song which was released in 2010. “I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anybody’s ship, but I think it’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!’ That’s bullshit.”
At that point in the RS interview, The Big Cheese can only assume Mayer then wiped away a single glycerin tear, not unlike the ones Debbie Reynolds sported for much of her onscreen time in “Singing in the rain.”
You gotta be shittin’ us!
Two Betty Whites? There are TWO BETTY WHITES?!?!
Apparently that’s the… “rumor.”
Or at least the bogus myth busters at Rumor Fix would like us to believe that’s a “rumor.”
Those tireless crusaders against all things cruel on the Hollywood grapevine have confirmed the the most egregious “rumor”… that Betty White has a body double at Madame Toussauds wax museum <gasp!>.
Oh, the horror.
Like sands through the hourglass.
So were the days of Lindsay Lohan’s career.
Not content to have merely fucked up her own pathetic existence, Ms. Lohan insists on scarring our memories of the Hollywood legend, gay icon and glamour-puss Elizabeth Taylor.
Here, the former shoots a scene as the latter. It’s from the once-blonde box office bomb’s Lifetime movie, sophisticatedly titled “Liz & Dick.” At her side – as Taylor’s 5th & 6th husband – is “Good Christian Bitches” graduate Grant Bowler.
Those simultaneous spinning sounds you hear from the directions of Forest Lawn’s Great Mausoleum in Glendale and Vieux Cemetery in Geneva, Switzerland are Liz and her Dick doing 360′s in their respective sarcophagi.
The Real Richard and Elizabeth
When The Rat Pack first saw the headline “Munsters Headed Back to TV in NBC Reboot,” we were less than bloodthirsty to see someone try to recreate Grampa, Lilly, Eddie, Herman and poor cosmetically challenged Marilyn.
Then we read the fine print. The show will be a on-hour drama, starring Jerry O’Connell as Herman.
We won’t put a stake through our hearts yet. We’ll wait until the pilot premieres on the network sometime midseason 2012-13
So Guess whose popularity rating in Michigan is higher than Mitt Romney’s.
It’s not Jack Kevorkian, but that’s probably only because Kevorkian’s doing the long dirt-nap these days.
Nope. As you may have guessed from the photo, it’s Kid Rock whose approval rating is actually higher than the Presidential Wanna-be. (Need we remind you that Michigan is Romney’s home state?)
Forty-two percent of the Michitigans polled gave the Pam Anderson’s husband of 182 days a thumbs-up. For Romney, the favorable number was 35 percent.
Maybe it’s time for Mitt to record a duet with Sheryl Crow.
