Weekend Tidbits

It was a big week in New York for U2 ,who was there to promote their new album, “No Line on the Horizon”.  They performed and did an interview on “Good Morning America” where they were performing live from Fordham University. The students were in frenzy and all morning classes were canceled. I guess with the right motivation you can get 4000 students up and out of bed in the early morning hours.  The band was honored this week with a street temporarily named after them by Mayor Bloomberg.  53rd street in Manhattan will be called U2 Way for a week. The band then headed over to “The Late Show with David Letterman”, where they spent an entire week. The group performed songs from their new album, did an interview and even helped Dave with his Top 10 List.  IT was a load of fun to watch them all week.  The group kicks off their world tour in Barcelona on June 30 and will head back in the U.S.  for a concert in Chicago at Soldiers Field in September.

 In other news, People Magazine is reporting that they know who is going to be taking Nancy O’Dell’s spot on DWTS and it is a doozie. Although ABC has made no comment, People are saying, Melissa Rycroft the jilted fiancée from this seasons Bachelor, is the one. We will just have to wait and see. She has had only days to rehearse, but she will be at the season premiere on Monday night.

Let’s talk about Nadya Suleman for a moment. The Octuplet Mom has lost another spokesperson. Victor Munoz has decided to no longer represent Nadya Suleman and it doesn’t even have anything to do with death threats, which was the reason her first publicist, JoAnne Killeen decided to leave. Munoz says, “I wish her luck she is going to need it.” He also says that, “It’s pretty much a free for all over there right now. They are freaking out. Not to sound arrogant but those people depended on me for everything. You have no idea what I’ve had to do for these people. Nadya got real greedy. This woman is nuts.” Wow, sounds like a pretty intense experience. No wonder she is nuts, who wouldn’t be with 14 children, 8 preemies and about to have no home. Yikes!
And lastly, some break up news. Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman just could not make it work. After trying to make another go of it after splitting up last July and getting back together in the fall, it just isn’t happening for the couple. Too bad they were awfully cute and funny together.
