Imagine Footloose with Valerie Bertinelli instead!
October 19th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Valerie Bertinelli. [ Comments: none ]

As we know, Lori Singer got the part of Ariel in 1984’s Footloose. Before she got the job of a lifetime, there were two other actresses who were also up for it. They are Fast Times at Ridgemont High’s Jennifer Jason Leigh and One Day at a Time’s Valerie Bertinelli. The latter has her theory why she didn’t get it. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live yesterday that she can’t dance. That as we all know, is a key requirement for that classic movie.

Proving she might be Hot In Cleveland, but she is not hot on the dance floor. Now I am going to spend the whole day pondering what it would have been like if she got the starring role in that film.


Jesus Campos, the Las Vegas security guard, breaks his silence about that night
October 19th, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

October 1st, the World was horrified when they heard that there was a shooting in Las Vegas aimed at an outdoor concert attended by thousands of people. With each passing hour, the news got worse and worse as we found out that 58 innocent people died and nearly 500 people were injured. We were sickened, saddened and angered. Then the stories came out about all of the heroes there were that night from first responders to the people at the concert to civilians who were passing by. It was the little bit of solace we needed to get through this tragedy.

There was one story from a hero we did not hear about and that was the story that Jesus Campos had to tell. Yesterday he told his side of the harrowing event that was about to unfold to Ellen DeGeneres. He is a security guard at the Bellagio who was just doing his job. That is until he got a call that would change his life forever. He went to check on door on the 32nd floor that was open for too long. He went up the stairwell from the floor below, but the door would not open. That is not supposed to happen, so he took the elevator to check out what was happening. That is when he realized the door was bolted up with brackets. He called engineering to check it out and that was when he heard what he thought was drilling. It turned out that it was gunshots and he had been shot. He called downstairs to let them know what was happening and did not even tell them that he had been shot.

At that moment, Stephen Schuck from engineering came up, and Campos told him to take cover. Saving his life. That was not the only life he directly saved that day, he also saved a female guest’s life who was coming out of her room. He told her to go back inside and she did. Then there are all the lives below, who were saved because he called in the shooting, stopping the f*cker earlier than he anticipated.

When Ellen offered the two men money, they refused it. Instead, she gave them tickets to their favorite sports teams and Shutterfly donated $25,000 in their names to GoFundMe page set up for the victims of that horrific night.

All of that makes him Campos a hero. But what sets him apart from a lot of other heroes, is just how humble he is. He did let them initially know that he was shot so that can work faster to get the shooter. Even though he was bleeding, he did not go to the hospital, so that he could help law enforcement. He did not take money that was offered to him. And most importantly, he does not comprehend all that he did that night and that he saved countless lives. He is not asking for credit, he just wants to be left alone to get over it. That is something we will grant him, but we will also never forget that this the face of a true hero. We need more people like him and we are glad that he was there night and will continue to be there for the rest of his life.

Thank you Jesus Campos. Thank you!


What are Halloween’s most popular dog costumes?
October 19th, 2017 under Animals, Harry Connick Jr. [ Comments: none ]

Are you a furent who likes to dress your dog up for Halloween and have not yet picked up a costume for your pup? Yesterday on Harry Connick Jr’s show, not only did they tell what is this year’s top 5 outfits, they also had five precious pooches model them for us. Now you have a better idea of what to get your best friend for October 31st.

The five most popular costumes are a devil, bumble bee, lion, hot dog and a pumpkin and most cost as little as a big bag of dog food. Which is not a bad deal and it will make you buddy stand out when you take them for a walk.

Every year I try to dress my cat up, but she looks at me like don’t even think about it. If I was ever successful, I will be going as a Mummy because the hospital will be forced to bandage up my scratched up body from head to toe.


What got Tina Turner to come out of retirement?
October 19th, 2017 under Remember?, Stage. [ Comments: 1 ]

For the better half of last century, Tina Turner was everywhere. Then when the calendar turned to the year 2000, she announced her retirement when she was just 60 years old. Since then she has barely been seen.

But then 2 days ago, she came out of retirement for the launch event of her bio musical Tina that will debut next year at London’s Aldwych Theatre to announce who will be playing her. The legendary singer said that they found the next Tina in Adrienne Warren, and she is not kidding when you hear the actress sing. Not only did we hear Warren sing, we also heard Miss Tina belt out a few bars of River Deep – Mountain High. It might have been 17 years since we heard her sing live, but she sounds exactly the same. That and she looks freaking phenomenal at 77. She could still be any man’s Private Dancer and that’s What’s Love Got To Do With It!


Ed Sheeran shows off his broken arms
October 19th, 2017 under Ed Sheeran. [ Comments: none ]

On Monday, Ed Sheeran reportedly was hit by a car while he was riding his bike and he fractured his right wrist and left elbow. Up until now, he has only shown pictures from the neck down. Yesterday, he went to the Q Awards and we got to see what he looks with his new cast and sling. The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo, was poor guy. Then the next thing I wondered is how is he going to play with his instrument while he recuperates. And I am not talking about the one with strings. Tell me I am not the only who thought that.
