Legendary MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer) Up for Sale Soon!

Legendary movie company and once a major movie studio MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer), is sitting on the edge of 4 billion dollars debt and a potential sale of the company! The death of Hollywood begins…

We all know MGM… the Lion that growls before the movie starts… yeah, that company. This is very sad news for every movie lover in the world. MGM is the birth and blood of moving motion pictures.

The MGM studio lot was sold years ago to Sony Pictures (wish they kept the org MGM sign!), which still resides over in Culver City. I had the opportunity to work there a few times, one being on “The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons” movie. MGM currently has an office building over in Century City. I’m not aware of any current standing “MGM” named studios, but the company does shoot at the Sony studios. Sony owns part of the MGM brand/name/company now, along with a few other odd companies like Texas Pacific Group, Comcast Corp., DLJ Merchant Banking Partners and Quadrangle Group.

This must mean that the new MGM owners can’t take care of their baby due to their own company failures! We’re calling child protection services!

In my opinion this is very bad news and this reflects what kind of current state our entertainment industry economy is in.

Do a blockbuster NOW! Hurry! Save MGM!

Australians Britney Spears Lip-Sync Ticket Disclaimer

Leave it to the good people of Australia to come up with a way to advise people thinking about attending a Britney Spears’ concert that not all parts of the show are performed live… print it on the ticket!

Thanks right! Seems Aussies are not familiar with a well known fact that Spears Lip-Syncs a majority of her Circus concert and they want a disclaimer printed right on the ticket!

Spears spoke out to the controversy surrounding one concert in Australia where fans are said to have reportedly walked out of the Circus concert after realizing the fix was in.

Spears, 27, although not directly addressing the lip-syncing issue did state, “Some reporters have said they love it and some don’t. I came to Australia for my fans!” Which translates in to, “Look Aussies, I’m in your country as a favor to the people to adore me and if you don’t like my show you can lump it.”

Sesame Street’s The Count Makes a Comeback!

Count Von Count on Google!

Count Von Count on Google!

We are really pleased here at ThecounT.com to see that Google.com has decided to feature Sesame Street’s “Count Von Count” today on their site!!!

Count Von Count has been low-key for the last ten years, and it looks as if he is back in the spotlight! We’re not sure if he was too controversial being a vampire on a kids show, or if he just got tired of all the glitz n’ glam of the celeb lifestyle. Sesame Street started doing all their Muppet photo ops during the day, and obviously Count Von Count just couldn’t risk the sunlight. Maybe Sesame Street and Count Von Count made a deal for nighttime shoots FINALLY!? Whatever happened we are just pleased to see Count Von Count making a hot comeback gracing the cover of Google.com !!!

Happy 40th Anniversary to Sesame Street and thanks for finally getting Count involved again! Vampires are so hot right now!  Good move.
Love you Count Von Count!!!
Kisses!

Lisa

Chimp Attack Victim Planned Oprah Guest

When Charla Nash, a resident of Connecticut was attacked by a 200-pound Chip chances are she wasn’t thinking, “Wow, move over doctor Phil, Here comes Charla!” however, that’s in essence what has happened as Oprah’s people have announced that Nash will appear on the show.

The Chimp, named Travis, did severe damage to Nash, tearing off several body parts.

Cheers to anyone one who goes through a tragedy like this to emerge on the other side!

EXCLUSIVE: Megan Fox Mega Offer to Endorse Boob Jobs

Here’s proof that some companies are willing to shell out the big bucks for a celebrity endorsement, even if the celebrity has not utilized their services!

In this ThecounT.com exclusive, we show you an offer Fox recently received to endorse breast enhancement even though Fox has stated publicly she hasn’t had any plastic surgery!

No word yet on whether Fox will take the whopping 1.5 Million being offered to her to attach herself to the boob job website or not, however, given the fact that Fox is painfully missing from the new “Transformers 2” sequel movie trailers may indicate that the movie gods are not very happy with her these days and taking the under performing “Jennifer’s Body” in to account, who knows? Maybe Fox should take the booby prize and run!
