Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel Both Getting Divorced

5 Jan

I always thought that there was a slight chance that Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel were the same person, or, at the very least, separated from birth.

And then, they both announced divorces from their respective husbands (Russell Brand and  Ben Gibbard) within days of one another.

Conspiracy?

(All kidding aside – they do look A LOT alike. LOL.)

For your (mind-boggling) viewing pleasure:

That all being said, we’re sorry to hear about the misfortunes of these unlucky-in-love ladies. Seems to be so hard to keep a Hollywood marriage alive….

Oprah: The Farewell Season

10 Sep

Is anyone else feeling as distraught over saying goodbye to Oprah as I am?

I know that she’s set to launch her OWN (pardon the pun) network (yes, it is entitled, OWN – the Oprah Winfrey Network) but, to me, it just isn’t the same!

Oprah’s show is 25 years old. I’m almost 27. Do the math – Oprah has been around my entire life, and, I’ve loved the show since I was old enough to watch it!

I have to admit, as much as some people will mock me for it, Oprah is one of my idols! She is definitely a role model to me, as she should be for many women. It really is bittersweet having to “say goodbye” to her – almost like a breakup or the end of a friendship! It really is the close of an important chapter in pop culture history.

That being said, we all know that “The Big O” is not ACTUALLY going anywhere. I mean, Oprah will probably surpass Betty White in longevity. She’ll be the Brett Favre of TV – she’s not ever going to actually retire. So, I know that this “farewell season” is just farewell to THIS era of the O, and not goodbye forever.

So, a part of me is anticipating what she’ll do next, and it’s kind of exciting. Even moreso than that, I’m really anxious to see what Oprah has in store for her final season. What surprises is she going to have in store? What big names will she wow us with? I can’t imagine all the stops she’ll pull out this year.

It does make me sad that a lifelong goal of mine was to appear on the Oprah show as a guest – ok, or at the very least, to attend a taping as a member of the audience – and now, I see that this will not be happening. Bummer!

I’m still excited to see what awesomeness Queen Oprah will bring us with her 25th season.

Everybody set your DVR’s for that series recording! The farewell season starts Monday, 9.13.10…I know I’ll be watching, will you?
PS: Who do you guys think will REPLACE Oprah? Such speculation. My guess? Has to be Ellen. Thoughts?

THE BACHELOR BREAKUP: Jake and Vienna … my personal thoughts…

27 Jun

 I’m usually not all Perez-Hilton mean in my blog but I can’t help it with this one …..WHO CARES?!!?!??  She was a skank who looked like a cross-eyed tranny horse.

 The show is among the fakest out there (save for most things on MTV and VH1) and anyone who goes on it or The Bachelorette has no concept of what real love is, nor a chance of finding it. (Trista and Ryan may be an exception.)  This girl was, from what I gather just from reading magazines, watching TV, and having ears and eyes, a piece of fame-seeking, white trash with a not-so-shocking, love ’em and leave ’em party-girl past. And Jake? Um, Douchebag. (Please note the capital D.) There you have it – Glitzburgh’s take on the least-shocking, least-important breakup of the moment. Why did I invest 60 seconds of my time and a couple inches of my blog space in writing this, again??

PS: YUP, I’m ready for the “haterade” … bring on the nasty comments! The beauty of creating, maintaining, and writing your own blog, is that you can write whatever you please, and spread your own opinions across the web like wildfire! So, bring it on. Most people whoI talk to tend to agree with me, anyway…We all have our guilty pleasures, I watch some crap TV, too. Unfortunately, I’ve just had my fill of The Bachelor series, even WITHOUT EVER WATCHING IT, and I am annoyed that every one of these couples’ breakups or Bachelor/Bachelorette scandals is “news”. I mean, WHAT?!?? It *WASN’T* TRUE LOVE? OMG!!!!!!!!! What is the world coming to?!???

Cut me a break. The show has been on forever. Isn’t it time to call it quits? The gimmicks get worse each season. I don’t even WATCH it but the clips they show on other entertainment shows, the previews/commercials, and the things that I read in magazines, are enough to make me throw up in my mouth a little. I’ve just had enough of it…and this particular couple gets on my nerves beyond belief. When he was on Dancing with the Stars I wanted to throw things at the TV. Hell, I wanted to throw TVs at the TV!

The show makes a mockery of romance, relationships, courtship, and marriage. It’s rather sickening and pathetic. No wonder women in our country have a warped perception of relationships and marrige. (Just a little food for thought.)

STEELERS: Santonio Holmes TRADED & Big Ben News…

12 Apr

Well, it looks like the Steelers won’t have to worry about Holmes’ reported 4-game suspension.

Why, you ask? The Rooneys are FED UP and have had enough, and are “breaking up” with Santonio.  Santonio Holmes has been traded to the New York Jets for a 5th round draft pick. Sources say that this was the best offer on the table — and, had the Steelers not been able to make this trade, they would have out-and-out CUT Holmes. The Steelers have had enough.

While the team will surely miss his on-the-field talent, the Steelers organization and fans will likely not miss his off-the-field behavior. (Though, so far, this trade has not yet provoked Holmes to encourage anyone’s suicide via social media.)

Some people are criticizing this move, but I think that it was a good decision. After all, the Steelers organization is about more than on-field skills and is a team that prides itself on more than just winning. While Holmes is a great player, the Steelers do not need his BS or his baggage…this is one franchise that has a reputation to uphold!

So, New York, enjoy your clearance item. How does it feel to get a Super Bowl MVP on sale?

Let’s hope that no other Steelers become “damaged goods.”

If I were Jeff Reed and Big Ben, I’d watch my off-field antics a little more carefully, and beware those drunken shenanigans.

PS: Big Ben press conference today at 2:00 pm EST. While ESPN reported that Roethlisberger would NOT face sexual assault charges, some sources are reporting (as recently as yesterday and today) that a final decision in Roethlisberger’s case could be months away. Additionally, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to meet with Ben at some point THIS WEEK. Stay tuned!

Wahhh!! Jon Gosselin Dumped by 25-year-old Girlfriend. Too bad, so sad. (Hallelujah!)

27 Mar

I usually try to not be overly critical on people but …. Jon Gosselin? Really? Kate, I don’t mind. I kind of enjoy my love/haterelationship with her. On some days I feel sympathetic towards her. Plus, their children are all just darling. However, Jon makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit. When you look up “douche” in the dictionary, his doughy, earringed, receding-hairlined, Ed-Hardied, poser mug should be staring right back at you.

I can’t say that I feel bad about the “breaking news” (or lack thereof) that Jon, 32 going on 14, got dumped yesterday by his 25-year-old girlfriend, Morgan Christine.

According to US Weekly Magazine, Jon “is a mess and feels like a loser.” Oh, boo-hoo. Maybe he’s finally seeing the light?

Kate Gosselin thinks their kids are better off with a nanny than with Jon. I can’t help but to agree. Has he shown any ounce of maturity or responsibility, or any reason whatsoever to be respected in recent years?

Ummm….no. How does one go from a sort of, kind of, almost sweet-ish, laid-back, semi-dorky, pretty normal guy with 8 kids, to a chain-smoking, wannabe loser chasing after young twentysomethings who quite obviously just want to be on TV or in the tabloids? Otherwise, what could they possibly see in him? Really? (Haley Glassman – class act, by the way – that Kate Major chick – probably just wanted a story out of the whole affair – and now Morgan Christie – a cute law student, who all in all, probably realized she was too good for him….)

He makes me cringe. I don’t want anyone to end up alone in life, but some people are just asking for it, truly. If you feel the need to stick up for Jon at all, we just can’t be friends. End of story.
