It is a sad day in Brooklyn and the rest of the United States of America because Joey Chestnut lost the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest today. Matt Stonie downed 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes, 2 more than the 9-time champ.
This news is really hard to swallow, kind of like the 53th hot dog for both men. I need to drown my sorrows at Barbeque with some beer, a few franks and some buns.
Everyone let’s have a moment a silence for Bubble Wrap’s pop because Sealed Air Corp has silenced the sound that makes its so enjoyable. Without the pop, the world will be a much quieter place.
According to the Wall Street Journal, iBubbleWrap’s “new packaging is sold in flat plastic sheets that the shipper fills with air using a custom-made pump. The inflated bubbles look much like traditional Bubble Wrap, with one key difference: They don’t burst when pressure is applied.”
This needs to be stopped ASAP. This is a crime against humanity. We need to have the ability to get a package full of Bubble Wrap and get excited because we have a sheet of it to pop over and over again until the last bubble is popped. Without it, what do we have?
I am so sad right now. Someone get me a huge sheet of Bubble Wrap because that is the only thing that is going to make me feel better.
Josh Peck posted a photo of himself wearing a Santa Claus hat and coat today, and doesn’t he know that Christmas is exactly six months away? I know the holiday comes earlier and earlier every year, but this is way too early. I want a little break between New Year’s and Christmas. Like at least 8 months.
Last week, Rose McGowan posted a casting note that asks for the actresses to show up in tight low-cut shirts and pushup bras, and yesterday she said her acting agent fired her. Actually, what she Tweeted was, “I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bullshit in Hollywood. Hahaha. #douchebags #awesome #BRINGIT.”
You can’t blame the acting agent for firing her. First off, they probably got an earful from the casting agent because of what McGowan posted. If she was a client that was booking all the time, then the agent would have kept her. But what else has she been doing besides collecting residuals from Charmed? I can’t remember the last time I saw her in something, do you?
When it comes to the note, welcome to Hollywood. Yes, the agent asked for it, but if you go to casting calls, then you will see a lot actresses who are already dressed like that. Plus, when did she become so prudish? For the most part, whenever you see her she is wearing low-cut tops. So to me she sounds hypocritical.
I assume the reason why she went forward with that casting note, is she was probably upset she was not up for a lead in a Madam Panhandler film.
What do you think of it all?
Lifetime has had some huge reality hits like Dance Moms and Little Women and tonight at 10p they are introducing us to UnREAL.
UnREAL is not a reality show. It’s a scripted comedy that looks at what happens behind the scenes of a reality dating show. If you think those shows are messed up. they ain’t got nothing on UnREAL.
Quinn King (Constance Zimmer) is the executive producer of Everlasting and she doesn’t care about the Bachelor finding his true love because she’s only focusing on its ratings. She will do anything in her power to make sure they are the highest they can be. That means keeping everyone on their toes.
Then there is Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) who had to take a break from the show last season due to some mental reasons. Now she is back, but is she as ruthless. Especially when there are other producers who want their girls to win so they can get the money.
If you think the star of the show’s love life is crazy, the people behind the scenes’ love life is even wilder. King is dating the King aka the head of the show, Chet (Craig Bierko), and he’s married. When it comes to Rachel, it was her relationship with someone who works on the show that sent her away. He’s moved on and she is trying to, all while they have to see each other every day on the set.
It’s a messy situation, but that’s what makes great TV. So if you ever wondered what really happens behind the scenes of shows like The Bachelor, let’s just say UnREAL is better than all of the seasons of that show combined and equally as addicting.
Before we get to UnREAL, Devious Maids is back on its new night at 9p. When we last left off Rosie and Mr Spence got married and their wedding ended with a bang. Actually several bangs because someone shot at them and their guests as they left the church.
Tonight the episode starts off with the shooting and we find out who was shot. At least one person will not be back this season. Just because at least one person died, doesn’t mean that the rich don’t need their house cleaned. That means there is a new devious maid in the mix and it is Naya Rivera. Whose house is she tiding up? You will have to tune in to find out. And also to see who else dies at the end of the episode that is not related to the shooting…
Dr Sarah Kingston, of Lancaster University, spoke with several male and female escorts and found that the need for them has tripled since 2010 in the UK. She found that women all of ages and backgrounds are using the service. Some are professionals who are just too busy for a relationship and others wants to spice up the ones that they are on. Many of the women who are hiring the men are doing so by using their phones and the internet to find them.
To show how much need the need has grown, in 2010 there were 5,246 male escort profiles and 11,056 female escort profiles and now there are 15,732 male profiles and 28,614 female.
Since this study was done on the other side of the pond, I wonder if Showtime’s show Gigolos played a role in the growing desire for this business. The docudramedy debuted on the pay cable network back in 2011, which is about the time the world’s oldest profession saw a surge in the numbers. If it didn’t play a part in the rise, then I think Showtime needs to send out Vegas boys to London and let them work their magic.
If you are a woman who pays for sex, then Dr Kingston wants to talk to you.
U3cL49W518 had some fun and edited a scene from Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Bloodsport and added the music from a Mentos commercial together, and what we got was pure happiness! Who knew the two would go so well hand and hand together, but they do. So sit back and let this fauxmmercial put a big smile on your face. Kind of like when you bite down on Mentos! Now I am craving one.
Juliette Lewis posted a photo of herself in her workout clothes and the 41 year old said, “Gettin closer to my goal of ‘light weight body builder’!!” That’s right, she is 41 and 21 year olds wish they had a body like hers. Damn.
We saw Meryl Streep do her best Disco in Mama Mia, and now we are seeing her rock out in Ricki and the Flash on August 7th. For the most part, it looks like a movie you would watch on cable during a lazy weekend afternoon. But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to be good. Sometimes those films are really enjoyable, especially when they star Meryl Streep.
My only problem with it, is why does everyone have to look like sh!t? I mean, her own daughter, Mamie Gummer, looks older than her and that’s not a good thing. Plus, for the first time Rick Springfield doesn’t look f*ckable and that says a lot.
Everyone has seen or at least heard about ESPN repoter Britt McHenry’s rant against a tow truck worker and turns out she wasn’t the first star to do this. Funny Or Die has uncovered video of David Spade doing the same thing and he really is Joe Dirt. Who knew? He used to be known as one of the nicest men in Hollywood, guess it was just a rumor. Sad.
BTW watch the video all the way through for a very believable ending to this tale.
