Celebrity 101

I love to watch Extra & Entertainment Tonight. I find the lives of celebrities to be very interesting. I don't envy them...I am past the days of wanting to be one, but the way they live just fasctinates me. It is my guilty pleasure that I hate to confess to:). I am, however, SO tired of hearing about all the bickering & feuding. So here is my two cents even though it matters not & it actually effects me none at all...

I cannot stand Rosie O'Donnell. I have disliked her since she was so ugly to Tom Selleck about gun control. (I am a proud member of the NRA but that is a whole NOTHER blog:). Rosie has been immature & quite ugly to Donald Trump. Did he deserve it...I'm not sure. I have mixed feelings about giving Miss America a second chance but he shouldn't be dogged...it's his pageant, his choice, & everyone makes mistakes. But what little respect I had for Donald Trump was lost when he fired back. He called her fat & a slob....that's REAL mature. And THEN he brought Barbara Walters into the ring...that was tacky. They are both ridiculous & I wish that the media would quit given them 5 minutes of fame over the issue.

On to the set of Grey's Anatomy...I am tired of the public bashing Isaiah Washington. He has been in the news a few times for misbehavior on the set so he may very well be a twirp. Was it wrong for him to use a slur? YES...it was very wrong!! Did he apoligize? Yes, he did. I am sorry that it was said, I don't think people should ever resort to name calling or judge other people based on race, religion, or sexual preference but come on....fire him? We have all said things that we shouldn't have & things that we have immediatly regretted saying...let the punishment fit the crime...

Finally...American Idol. People are SO upset with Simon...GIVE ME A BREAK!!! This is the SIXTH season people...his harsh commentary is NOTHING new! You knew he would be mean when you sat down to watch & I guarantee that they would not have 37 miliion viewers each week if he wasn't on there being tacky!!! He is no more harsh this year than last...and if it bothers you that much...QUIT WATCHING!!! And another thing....if you have a child that wants to try out for AI & they sing horribly...TELL THEM! Don't let them make fools of themselves on national television!!

I have said my peace....I realize that most people have quit reading already........

I totally agree with everything you say here... get 'em girl!!

I am content and grateful for my one channel (ABC Lawton) and don't have a clue about any of what this blog is, other than I reconize some of the names. I felt you deserved a comment just the same.

True,

And So True

I can't believe they spend so much money on pointless stuff. Like $1,000 on a pair of pants. Why not a hundred dollars on a pair then donate the rest. Makes more sense to me if they just want to throw the money out and not save it.
