Jerry Seinfeld is headed to Las Vegas in late August for back-to-back nights at Caesars Palace at the Colosseum Las Vegas. Caesars Palace has been able to attract perhaps the biggest headlining acts in Sin City, so it should be no surprise that one of the most recognizable voices in comedy would choose this casino, hotel, and resort to perform.
The bigger question is whether or not this will simply be a brief, two night affair or if this will turn into a more consistent set of performances, like Jay Leno’s two-night a month date at the Terry Fator Theatre at the Mirage. According to Crave Online, Jerry Seinfeld’s relationship with Caesar’s Palace could be something more than a brief affair.
Jerry Seinfeld tickets will as of now, be available for the following nights:
Tonight is Country music’s big night and all the stars are headed to Las Vegas for the 44th Academy of Country Music Awards. The show will air live tonight on CBS at 8:00 so tune in to see all the big winners (and losers.) IT should be a great show with scheduled performances by Rascal Flatts, Sugarland, Toby Keith and Taylor Swift, and as I mentioned earlier this week Miley Cyrus will be on stage singing “The Climb” from her new Hannah Montana movie. Reba McEntire will be hosting the event for her 11th time. There is big competition tonight for the Entertainer of the Year award. Carrie Underwood is the sole woman up against 4 men in this category. She is competing against George Strait, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban. I am personally hoping she can do it and beat those 4 men…good luck Carrie; you have had an amazing year!
It looks like 3 year old Mercy James from Malawi will not be going home with Madonna as planned but is going back to the orphanage. First the judge rejected the adoption claim based on the fact that Madonna hadn’t been a resident in Malawi for the 18 -24 months requirement before adopting. As one can imagine Madonna was very upset and has already started the appeal process, but Lourdes as well, was devastated by the turn of events. In addition to that, it seems that the baby’s biological father has stepped forward. James Kambewa is claiming he is the baby’s father and he never knew that she was alive. After getting the baby’s 15 year old mother pregnant he fled. The baby’s mother then died several days after the baby was born and Kambewa said he thought the baby had died as well. So now he is back and claiming that he wants his daughter. HE of course will need to take a DNA test to see if he is indeed that father and then he says he will be ready to meet Mercy. So we will just have to wait and see what happens. All I have to say is regardless of the new information about the father, why would the government make you be a resident for so long? I just feel that if there is better opportunities for these children besides living in the orphanage why make it so difficult? Absolutely, take some time and make sure you have a good family to adopt these children but asking perspective parents to live in the country for almost 2 years seems a lot to ask and who knows what other requirements there are. Hey Madonna can adopt me. Regardless what you think of her and Angelina Jolie they are truly helping these children and giving them a better life then they have in an orphanage. I just think anyone who is willing to bring these children into their lives and try to provide a better life them should be commended.
It was a night to remember at David Lynch’s “Change Begins Within” concert and benefit at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall this weekend. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr both performed solo sets during the night. Paul was actually headline the show and after his set he did what everyone hoped he would….he called up his old friend Ringo and the two performed on stage together for the first time in 6 years. How cool is that?? The two sang “With a Little Help From My Friends”, “Cosmically Conscious” and “I Saw Her Standing There”. I bet that was incredible not only to hear them together but to see them together as well. The event was a bit out there but I guess that is no surprise with David Lynch. He organized the event to increase awareness and funds for his foundation for “Consciousness – Based Education and World Peace, a charity that works to promote the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Transcendental Meditation technique. A lot of stars and performers showed up to show their support including Howard Stern, Jerry Seinfeld, Sheryl Crow, Eddie Vedder, Moby.
I will publically admit that I am a reality TV junkie, however I think the new reality series planned to air on NBC this fall is a bit over the top (although that doesn’t mean I won’t tune in). Jerry Seinfeld is going to be producing the show and the concept is his baby. The show is going to be called,”The Marriage Ref”, and basically America will be watching your everyday couples fighting about everyday stuff. The show wants to put cameras in as many homes around the country that will let them. Then as couples fight about common topics, likes hubbys that watch too much sports, or not helping enough around the house, special guest judges will be brought in to offer their comments and strategies to help the couples cope with these situations. Hmmm…interesting.
Jerry is hoping to bring in famous comedians, celebrities, and athletes to help these people work on their problems. Now correct me if I am wrong, don’t most Hollywood marriages break up within months? If you were having problems do you really think advice from a pro football player would help you iron things out? Some of Jerry’s “dream refs” would be Denis Leary, Kathy Griffin, and Ray Romano. Marriage advice from Denis Leary…right. Jerry is quick to note that this will not be a marriage therapy show but rather a comedy. I am sure if Kathy Griffin is giving the advice it will be hysterical. So far 6 shows have been ordered and we will just have to see how Jerry’s first jump back into TV works for him. I mean, we have all heard of the Seinfeld curse haven’t’ we?
Jerry himself is doing quite well in the marriage department. He has been married to wife Jessica for 9 years and has 3 young children. That is a lifetime in Hollywood and probably does give him license to hand out marriage advice. Jerry’s comedy always focused on the issues of dating and the hilarity of being single. Now that he is married with kids his comedy and changed to marital and kids stuff and he says “marriage is a gold mine of comedy.” Well I for one will tune in and see if he is right.
