Seriously? OMG! WTF?

Blanco Brown gits up for the first time since his car accident
April 21st, 2021 under Blanco Brown. [ Comments: none ]

Back in September, Blanco Brown was in a car accident that left him with such serious injuries, he was not able stand or sit up for a while. He spent the last few months rehabbing, and there is one thing he hasn’t done since then. That thing is the line dance he created for his song Git Up.

When a fan saw him getting out of a car, he put on the tune and started dancing. That was all it took to get the Country singer to do his dance for the first time since his accident.

Brown is back better than before. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us. That is besides a duet with Darius Rucker.


What is, LeVar Burton will guest host Jeopardy?
April 21st, 2021 under Jeopardy. [ Comments: none ]

Fans of LeVar Burton have been doing everything in their power to get him to guest host Jeopardy, and it worked. Today, the game show announced that he will be in the final group of guest hosts this season, along with George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts, David Faber, and Joe Buck.

“THANK YOU… to all y’all for your passionate support,” Burton wrote. “I am overjoyed, excited, and eager to be guest-hosting Jeopardy!, and will do my utmost best to live up to your faith you have in me. YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE! Go ahead and take my word for it, this time.”

Mike Richards, Executive Producer of Jeopardy, confirmed they made the difference. “Our passionate fans are telling us what they like, and we are listening,” he said. “All of the guest hosts have brought individualism, energy and an authentic love of our show to each of their episodes. We look forward to sharing the rest of the season with our viewers.”

Except for the Reading Rainbow host, I think the rest of the names are a yawn. I don’t know how people stay awake when they watch Good Morning America. That show is as exciting as watching my coffee cool down so I can drink it without burning my tongue.

I wish they would’ve gotten Neil DeGrasse Tyson to audition to be a permanent host. I think he would have been great. He’s smart and funny, unlike Stephanopoulozzzzz.


I need a man to look at me the way Peter Dinklage looks at himself
April 21st, 2021 under Wax Figure. [ Comments: none ]

Peter Dinklage got his own life-size candle at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, and I can’t get over what a great job they did. They look exactly alike. Can you tell the difference between the actor and the stiff? The only reason why I can is that I love how he is looking at himself so lovingly. He better look at his wife the same way.


Lucie Arnaz continues to defend Nicole Kidman as her mom
April 21st, 2021 under Keith & Nicole Urban, Lucille Ball. [ Comments: none ]

Ever since it was announced that Nicole Kidman is going to play Lucille Ball in an Aaron Sorkin movie about a short period of time in the life of the legendary actress, people have said it was bad casting. However, there is one person who defended her being hired, and she is Lucie Arnaz.

Recently there were pictures released from the set, and people hated the casting even more. Therefore, Ball’s daughter took to social media once again to defend the Oscar winner.

I often enjoy what I see as I scroll through many “I Love Lucy” fan groups here, but, it seems it may be time, once again, for me to make my little speech.

Hi, Folks! Look, regarding the upcoming Aaron Sorkin-Amazon Studio two hour feature film shooting right now about my mother and father – with all due respect-

As you continue to find it fertile fodder for your chat room banter, please keep in mind that:

A) This is not going to be a full biography- just a snippet of time during a crucial and interesting period in their true life story.

B) We agreed to the inspired casting choice of Nicole Kidman because she is smart, a first class, award winning actress who can play comedy or drama and become anyone she puts her mind to and box office gold (important to big studios these days). She was cast to portray Lucille Ball. Not her fictional TV character, “Lucy Ricardo” and, take my word for it, Lucille Ball and “Lucy Ricardo” were quite different people.

C) Our director was not interested in this cast looking exactly like any one of the real life people they play. Acting chops and an essence of the person is what you look for- unless you are doing a drag act or an SNL sketch.

D) If one has not seen a script for a film, how can they begin to know whether an actor would be right for a part -even if they had the talent and experience to make such a decision?

And E) AGAIN, this is not a reboot/remake or updated version of “I Love Lucy”, their iconic comedy series.
No one should ever attempt to do that. It would be a very very bad idea.
If someone WAS trying to do that, then many of you would be correct, no one could replace those four original actors or the brilliance of that show’s writing.

This film takes place almost entirely behind the scenes of “I Love Lucy”, in the real lives of the people involved with the show, off the set and off the studio lot, during that same time period. The title, “Being The Ricardo’s”, is a clever play on words that you will understand after you see what Aaron Sorkin has written.

So, how about everyone just take a big, deep breath and let these actor kids play in the sandbox for a while with our team and make us all a nice gift, okay?

If she approves of the woman playing her mom, I guess we should too. However, I recently watched Kidman in Grace of Monaco, and all I saw was Kidman and not Grace Kelly. Kidman is an outstanding actress, but, to me, she is not good at playing other famous people.

How do you feel about Mrs. Keith Urban playing Mrs. Desi Arnaz?


Are you there Gd? It’s me, Judy Blume?
April 21st, 2021 under Movies. [ Comments: none ]

We all grew up reading at least one of Judy Blume’s books and even watched some of them be made into Hollywood productions. One of the books we have been waiting to get that treatment is, Are You There Gd? It’s Me, Margeret. Well, the wait is almost over because they started filming the movie.

If you thought we were excited about that, we have nothing on Judy Blume. She has been waiting over 50 years for this to happen for her 1970 novel, and the day is finally here for the 82-year-old author. That is why she is smiling as big as she on the set of the film.

Seeing her holding the movie clapper like that makes me as happy as when I read her books as a kid. How could you not love reading Fudge or Freckle Juice?
