Casper SMART HUGE ROOKIE MISTAKE! LEAKS JLO American Idol Return

Jennifer Lopez is returning to American Idol as a judge, he said with a whimper. It should have been BIG news! FOX and AI producers were ready and willing to spend a ton of money on the reveal! BUT.. JLO’s boyfriend, Casper Smart, (insert play on words here,) made a huge rookie mistake by revealing – prematurely – that his superstar GF is in fact coming back to American Idol to sit on the judge’s panel. So much for millions of dollars in teaser promos..jlo3 Continue reading

Simon Cowell Your American Ignorant

 

It must be nice, while people all over the word suffer with a variety of troubles, chaps like American Idol’s Simon Cowell are driving Million dollar cars, introducing Cowell’s $1,000,000.00, 240 MPH, Bugatti Veyron.

Sure Cowell has the money, and mostly thanks to our patronage of TV shows like American Idol and XFactor, however, is it not a bit, well, obscene to be this flashy in these times? I admit this is a bit of sour grapes as I try and figure out how to pay the gas bill this week, however, I am also thinking about other everyday folks also suffering with money problems and how this type of excess must make them feel.

Hey Cowell, go take a bath in champaign in the privacy of your own mansion, use 100 dollar bills to wipe your ass, I mean, light the fire place, buy your dog a condo, whatever, just stop rubbing in all of us little people’s faces…

“Reading Rainbow” Reaches its End

Sad news for literature fans. Reading Rainbow, the PBS childrens’ show that inspired millions of kids to read (including me), has ended. Today’s episode will be its last after an impressive 26 year run.

Reading Rainbow

Reading Rainbow

The show, hosted by LeVar Burton, would profile a new book in each episode, usually accompanied by animation or some sort of adaptation of the work.  The show would always end with children reviewing other books.  Throughout the series, Burton toured the world, teaching children about other cultures and the literature they read.

PBS says the show is coming to end because lack of funding and a general change in the world of children’s television. The approach of Reading Rainbow, teaching children why reading is fun, isn’t as popular as it was 26 years ago.  That, paired with a cash shortage for the show, brought it to an end.

So ends another chapter from my childhood.  Thanks for the memories, Reading Rainbow!

Happy Birthday Mary Kate and Ashley!

dmatteo

These 2 crazy lovebirds, Drea de Matteo (Sopranos) and her rocker boyfriend Shooter Jennings, are engaged to be married. Us Weekly reports that Jennings proposed to  Matteo during his show in Utica, New York. The couple already have a child, Alabama Gypsyrose, who was born in November of 2007. I’d like to go on record to say that this family has the coolest names of all time. Mega inventive and classic. I wish my parents had been a wee more creative but that’s what I get for being the daughter of a couple of french librarians. Congrats to the newly engaged couple!
