Season 6 of the hit HBO show “Entourage” returns on July 12th and has some big guest stars. “High School Musical” hottie Zac Efron joined the show and actually shot some scenes at the Niketown store in Beverly Hills today. None of the other cast members were there but a Niketown employee said Efron shot a scene talking on a cell phone and that he was really nice. Also joining Jeremy Piven and Adrian Grenier this season will be Tom Brady, LeBron James and Lil Wayne and they will all appear as themselves. I don’t know about you but I am ready for some good summer shows to start back up!!
Madonna is out and Kate Hudson is in when it comes to officially dating Alex Rodriguez (A Rod) from the New York Yankees. It seems that Kate and son Ryder followed A- Rod on the road to Dallas during a three game series against the Texas Rangers. A source says they stayed at the same hotel and even worked out together. It seems like love is in the air, now we will just see how long it lasts. Wonder how Chris Robinson, Kate’s ex and Black Crowes band member feels about baseball.
I finally got to see a monologue by Conan O’Brien and I am happy to say it was for his first “Tonight Show” gig. He was finally early enough for me to see him and I have to say he was funny. It was odd to not see Jay behind the desk but I think he did a fine job for his first night. The sketches were funny and he did a good job with guest Will Ferrell and Pearl Jam. I must admit though that my heart still belongs to Letterman. He is just my favorite and his show was funny as always. David Letterman had on Bill Cosby and his mom, who said, “Well Dave, I see you didn’t get the Tonight Show again.” You have to admit…pretty funny. I wish Conan luck in his new beautiful studio and everyone will just settle into to their favorite host or who has the best guest on that night.
The word of the day for Mr. and Mrs. Pratt is – WIMPS!!! It seems the duo cannot decide if they really really want to quit the NBC reality show, “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here” or if they want to stay. Now I am not saying I could do it but I would NEVER sign up for that. What were they expecting….easy living since they are “celebrities” – it’s the JUNGLE? So quit your whining guys. Literally the first night, Monday, during the premiere they threatened to quit twice and did and then unquit and came back to Tuesday nights show. At the moment it seems like they quit but honestly I am not really sure. We will just have to wait and see. Here is a quote from Mr. Super celebrity Spencer Pratt himself…”Super- celebrities don’t belong in the jungle. They belong in Hollywood with the paparazzi.” That makes you really like the guy right?? That statement is so irritating for so many reasons… the first being that he thinks him and wifey Heidi Montag are super celebrities!!! Anyway more power to the nine celebrities’ toughing it out in the Costa Rican jungle for charity. Lou Diamond Phillips, Stephen Baldwin and Janice Dickerson are sticking around – for now anyway. Bye bye Heidi and Spencer…hurry back to “The Hills” while you still can.
I have not talked about her for weeks but this cannot go without mention. It is absurd and shocking and I will try to just tell you the story without my soap box. Nadya Suleman is contemplating a new pet…possibly a small PIG!!! Really…does she really need one more mouth do feed or excuse me…but more poop to clean up??? She says that if she did indeed decide on a pig is would live outside and wear a diaper. A pig???? Another possibility is a teacup Pomeranian or some other little dog. Like taking care of 8 newborns plus 6 other children is not enough…but the kids have been asking for a pet for awhile she says. Have you heard the saying…Just Say NO!!!! Nadya has been busy looking for someone to give her a reality show as well as trying to trademark the name, Octo – mom. Nuff said!
Here are few odds and end stories. Jay Leno was admitted to the hospital for undisclosed reasons on Thursday and has been admitted for observation. He had to cancel “The Tonight Show” for Thursday but is expected back to work on Monday. Jay’s people say he is doing ok and has been joking around with the doctors and nurses. And since we can never have enough Lindsay Lohan scoop… it seems that Lindsay and ex girlfriend Samantha Ronson spent about 6 hours together yesterday. Maybe Samantha caught Lindsay on The Ellen show, telling the world that she still loves Samantha. Ronson has actually even changed her Face book status to “complicated”…interesting. Stay tuned – I am sure this will not be the last we hear of these two. Bruce Springsteen’s wife, Patti Scialfa, was not with him at his Wednesday night concert because she fell off her horse. She is bruised up but luckily that is all. She is at home recuperating. Have you seen Susan Boyle recently…she is hardly recognizable. Check her and her new makeover out. She looks 20 years younger – which brings her to her age and not a grandmother. She really does look great. Amazing what a good hair cut and color can do for a woman. So the overnight success named Susan Boyle looks like a million bucks!
And how about those Brits? Two famous British celebrities have decided to donate their brains to help Parkinson’s research and are asking others to do the same. Wows…talk about using your star power for good. Jeremy Paxman is a TV host and Jane Asher is an actress as well as the president of the British Parkinson’s Disease society. Already 1000 people have agreed to do the same. Two of our famous celebrities here in the US suffering from the disease are Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali. Let’s end on a lighter note this Friday afternoon…. It has just been announced the Taylor Swift will be performing at the CMT Awards on June 17th in Nashville. Also performing will be Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts and new daddy, Brad Paisley.
Kelly Osbourne says she “has never been clean until now”. Kelly was just released from a month long rehab. program has been out for three weeks. She says she has been addicted to painkiller since she got her tonsils removed when she was 13 years old. Although she has been in rehab 2 times previously this time she is really clean. She said that she went into rehab because “she knew if I didn’t get help I would die.” Kelly is back with her family and has reunited with them for their new Fox show called the “Osbournes Reloaded.” Keep it clean this time Kelly
Poor Obama, he offended quite a few people during his appearance on The Tonight Show in Los Angeles on Thursday night. He made an off the cuff comment about his bowling abilities and compared them to the Special Olympics. Well you can imagine the people that were up in arms. Come on people, give the man a break. He says himself that he in “no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics, and that he thinks it is a wonderful program”. Of course he does who doesn’t? I understand that it wasn’t the nicest thing, but people say things and it is just reality. I am sure he will be more careful and does deeply regret the comment. You can be sure that Sarah Palin jumped right on this. She says that, “This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world.” You know she couldn’t wait to give her comments against Obama.
Ellen DeGeneres can say…mission accomplished. For weeks she has been campaigning to be on the cover of Oprah’s O magazine. Ellen has called Harpo studios, she has been talking about it on her show and even made several mock ups of her and Oprah on the cover. On Friday, Oprah made a surprise satellite visit to share the good news with Ellen and told her that she loved the idea and wished she had thought of it herself. Ellen has big plans for her cover magazine and told Oprah that she wants her issue to be the biggest selling issue the magazine has ever had. For some reason I think she will accomplish that goal as well.
Finally some good news in the Chris Brown and Rihanna story. The two have decided to take a break. They have not officially broken up by Rihanna has decided to take some time and focus on herself and her career. It sounds like she is finally coming to her senses. Rihanna is back in LA after spending some time with her good friends Beyonce, Jay – Z, Brandy and her manager. Maybe all the input from friends, as well as Oprah, who talked to the couple on her show and has also been focusing on domestic violence, finally got through to her. Whatever, it is a good start to getting her life back on track.
Justin Timberlake has something to celebrate as well as something to celebrate with. He is launching a brand new brand of tequila called 901, which just happens to be his old area code from where he grew up in Memphis. The project has been in the works for more than 2 years and will be available in select markets in May. The lucky markets are St. Louis, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Justin is keeping his plate full; he also has his fashion line as well.
Make sure you turn into The Tonight Show tonight to catch President Barrack Obama chat it up with Jay Leno. This will be Obama’s first live talk show appearance since he became President. HE plans on making a grand entrance and will of course talk about the economy and his economic plan.
I am still so saddened and shocked as we all are about the death of Natasha Richardson. Every time I see a picture of her it just does not seem real. The autopsy has come back and shows the cause of death was an “epidural hematoma, due to blunt impact to the head, which led to profound bleeding between the skull and the brain’s covering”. My heart just goes out to her family and the people who knew her. It makes you realize how precious every day needs to be.
