New Kids on the Block go Cruising

This was finally the big New Kids on the Block Carnival cruise weekend. There were about 2,100 obsessed fans on board to see the boys (who should really be called boys to men – but too bad that is already taken). The women ranged from in their 20’s and 30’s  and were all about the boys,  they wore their  New Kids t-shirts, buttons,  and some even kissed those life size card board cutouts of their favorite kid. The guys were going to perform twice on board in order for everyone to have a chance to see them. They were also around to sign autographs and hang with the fans. It seems like this was a big hit for the cruise line who along with many other companies have taken a hit with the struggling economy. Who will be the next group to sign on to “get on board”? Already Jon Mayer,  Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bare Naked Ladies have also done similar type events. The boys get started with their actual concert schedule on June 4th in Atlanta.

 This weekend, Jen Scheff, the former ABC Bachelorette got married Friday night in Chicago to Joe Waterman. IT’s nice to know that she has found love and so has her Bachelor ex- Andrew Firestone who just became a new daddy. And if you are a Bachelorette fan don’t forget the new season starts this Monday night on ABC with one of last season’s cast off, Jillian Harris. I am so happy that everyone seems to be finding love (hey even Melissa Rycroft is happy again after the whole last season debacle), it would just be nice to see it work out with one of the people they actually “fall in love” with on the show. Hey, I am a romantic what can I say?
After a 5 year hiatus, Gwen Stefani and No Doubt kicked off their concert tour in Las Vegas Saturday night. The band was actually playing for the 12th annual Tiger Jam, which is Tiger Woods charity that benefits kids and education. The band mostly played their old hits but did do some newer songs in their 90 minute set.  The crowd went wild for the group and I am sure they felt good to be back.

Not much to report this weekend and I refuse for the moment to write any more about the Gosselin’s from “Jon and Kate Plus 8”. So that is it for now. We will see what this week brings us in the world of gossip.
