Simon Cowell is writing children’s books
February 24th, 2020 under Books, Simon Cowell. [ Comments: none ]


We have all pictured Simon Cowell doing a lot of things, and I don’t think any of us imagined him as an author of children’s books. Come spring of 2021, that will be on his resume.

The television mogul announced today that he and his son Eric are releasing a 7-book series called Wishfits with Hachette Children’s Group. The Wishfits are a combination of two animals like the DAT (dog/cat) the COG (cat/dog), the SNOG (snail/dog – the enthusiasm of a dog at the speed of a snail), the PEEP (pig/sheep) the CHUG (cheetah/slug – the slowest cat in the world), the HIPPOROO (hippo/kangaroo), the CHIMPANPOO (chimpanzee/poodle), the POLARBAT (polar bear/bat), the CROCOPUSS (crocodile/cat), the SHIGER (sheep/tiger – the most nervous cat in the world), the SPIKEY (spider/donkey) and many, many more.

The father and son have been working on this concept for three years, or half of Eric’s life.

Part of the proceeds of the books will be donated to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices and Together For Short Lives. Who knew the King of Mean was such a big softie?

The best part of the press release is the 6-year-old’s bio, “Eric’s favourite things to do are reading stories, he loves going to school and playing with his friends. Eric also loves animals, swimming, go-karting and jet ski-ing together with his dad Simon amongst other adventures. Eric’s dad is Simon Cowell, his mum is Lauren Silverman and Eric also has an older brother Adam Silverman (14).” His bio is more impressive at 6 than mine is now.

Back to the papa bear, does he believe that hybrid animals exist? He wrote, “My gut feeling is that some of these WISHFITS actually exist…somewhere!” Every time our dog humped our cats, we really thought that one day we were going to have a dat or cog. There was only one problem, they were all males, so no puttens or kippies for us. At least not in the real world.

Stephen King likes Revenge for the ‘great clothes’
May 23rd, 2013 under Books. [ Comments: none ]


Stephen King did an interview with Parade magazine to promote his new book Joyland and they asked him what shows he is currently watching on TV. He told them “Justified, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead. The best show of the year is The Americans. I don’t watch Mad Men. I think it’s basically soap opera, and if I want soap opera, I watch Revenge. That show is crazy, but they have great clothes.” I get Bates Motel and The Walking Dead, but Revenge that I just don’t get. When I think of the greatest horror author of all time watching TV, I don’t picture him watching a show about a woman getting revenge on the people in The Hamptons, who got her father sent to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. I just don’t.
The mind of Stephen King never ceases to amaze me. And on his brilliant mind, am I the only one who can’t wait until June 24th at 10p to see Under the Dome on CBS.

Florence Henderson’s TMI

Florence Henderson has written a memoir and according to Reuters in it she shared a story that none of us really needed to know. Carol Brady, the sweet and innocent mom on The Brady Bunch, details how an one night affair left her scratching.

Henderson, now 77, recounts in her upcoming memoir that she was cheating on her husband during the 1960s, and gave in to her better judgment when her married and unattractive friend put the moves on her over drinks at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
“I was lonely. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it,” she writes in “Life is Not a Stage,” set for publication in September.
Henderson went home later that night, and awoke to a grisly surprise the next day as she saw “little black things” crawling over her bed and body.
An urgent call to a doctor took care of the problem, known medically as pubic lice, and Lindsay sent her flowers and a note of apology.
“Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata,” Henderson writes. “He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”

I have to admit that story got me wanting to read the book until I the article added that only one chapter in the book is dedicated to the show that made her household name. That is all I care about when it comes to her.
BTW her TV daughter Susan Olsen aka Cindy Brady to Twitter to defend her TV mom, she said “SOOO sick of the vapid media. Give them a good book to read and all they get is a case of crabs.”
