Grey’s Anatomy is beginning its 8th season this fall and the original cast members’ contracts are up at the end of it. The first of the original doctors has spoken out about it and Patrick Dempsey says he will not be back for a ninth one. The doctor with the hair told Italian Vanity Fair (via TVLine), “It will be my last. I do not know about the other characters, it may or may not continue. But for me it’s over.” And to me without McDreamy, the show will be a McNightmare.
I know it has been said that ER was able to survive without its original cast members, but that show did it more gradually and they had replacements we liked. I don’t like any of the new doctors on Grey’s. That and ER was more realistic with their medical stories and every episode didn’t feel like a stunt.
To me Grey’s started going downhill after the Super Bowl episode. Yes, I still watch, but almost every week I ask myself why.
So who else will you be upset to see leave? Who do you think will leave? Who do you want to leave? Will you still watch if the originals left the show?
America’s Got Talent is back for its sixth season tonight on NBC at 8p and Piers Morgan and Howie Mandel said this is the best season thus far. A few weeks the judges including Sharon Osbourne and host Nick Cannon met with reporters to preview the upcoming season and the CNN anchor said there was one city that had more good acts than some of the previous entire seasons. Morgan said, “We had better talent in Atlanta over three days than we’ve had in some entire seasons this year, and I have been on every season. And there was one act in particular that I said at the time and I meant it was the most exciting audition I’ve ever seen in Britain or America. The talent level has been incredible this season. People won’t believe what they are seeing.” He didn’t say what that act was, but I wonder if it is the one that Howie described later on. The bald headed comedian described one audition that stood out, “We have a burlesque act who pulls doves out of her privates.” The poor doves is all I can say about that.
But that isn’t the only risky or risque act that we will see during the auditions because here is what Howie told us, “That being said, it’s been the most dangerous year. We have had some thrills and spills that I have never seen before. I mean, I came this close to seeing almost near death experiences right in front of my eyes, and they were not planned. And I don’t know if NBC is going to air them, but I’m telling you that it’s probably the most dangerous show on television, the most exciting show on television, and I’m thrilled to be part of it because to be witness to this besides watching somebody take the journey and come from obscurity to hopefully the next big star, I’m seeing things that I have never seen before. There isn’t a place to see this on television. There aren’t places that have these kind of performances live.”
There really isn’t, so don’t miss a single minute of the show that launched the career of a man who has now made over $100 million for playing his dolls!
Robert Smith has always had an interesting hairstyle, but now the Freakshow just looks like a long deserted bird’s nest. There is no Cure for that untamed Forest, I think the only way to tame it would be to chop it all down. Can some one please show him how to use a brush because it doesn’t look like he has used one since his mother sang him a Lullaby to go to sleep. It is so bad that Donald Trump wrote him a Lovesong because he no longer has the worst hair in show business.
Robert Smith the only way I want to see Pictures of You is if you did something to control that hairdo that makes Edward Scissorhands’ look sleek. And remember if you go to the barber, Boys Don’t Cry!!!
Tori Spelling is pregnant with her third child and she is showing off her growing belly in a black bikini during a family trip to the beach. It is not her baby bump that makes me feel like the first picture, but it is the two lady lumps above them. Seriously why hasn’t she gotten those things fixed by now?
Tonight at 10p Lifetime has a new take on the popular weight loss shows. Love Handles: Couples in Crisis looks at couple who need to take off the pounds to make their relationships work, but that isn’t the only problem that is hurting them. So besides learning ways to take care of their bodies, they learn ways to take care of their souls. You watch as they struggle to become the new and improved individuals and lovers! They come out of this show better than they were before on both the inside and outside and what more do you need from a weight loss show?
Could you imagine Footloose without Kevin Bacon? Well according the actor, who is six degrees from every actor in Hollywood, that was almost the case. He told Details magazine, “Craig Zadan, one of the producers on both films (referring to the sh!tty remake that’s coming out in the fall), actually found my screen test in a vault and sent it to me. What had been going on back then was the producers and the director wanted me, but the head of the studio famously said, ‘He’s just not fuckable.’ So they went and did their own screen test. Watching it, I got a chance to see this kid with this hunger and ambition and energy. There were parts of myself that I didn’t even recognize. You could just see that I was going to fuckin’ go in there and kill it.” Thankfully he nailed the screen test because he is the only actor that I could ever see playing Ren McCormack.
BTW according to Rob Lowe’s must read autobiography Stories I Only Tell My Friends, he auditioned for the role, but he blew his knew and the audition when he attempted that infamous slide that Bacon perfected!
