This Week in Pop Culture ~ 11/29

It’s been a good week y’all.

Stuff has been happening in Hollywood.

Those folks are crazy…


Let’s start on a high note…Looks like Jessica Simpson is preggers again!  Good for her!





Next up…let’s talk Two and a Half Men.

Of course we all know the train wreck, Charlie Sheen…but now it seems as if the show’s youngest star has gotten in on the show-bashing.  Angus T. Jones, who plays John Cryer’s son, released a video on You Tube earlier this week pleading with people not to watch the show… Here’s the video…

His quote went a little something like this…”"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men, I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”

Charlie Sheen claims the show is cursed.

It seems to me that this kid might have gotten used by this “pastor” trying to further his own agenda…but who the heck knows.

The next day he issued some very scripted apologies that were released to the cast and crew of the show.  The whole situation is just weird, right?

Chances are he will be off the show next season, if there is a next season.


Speaking of train wrecks…

Liz and Dick starring Lindsay Lohan.

I want to know who watched this.  Please tell me…I won’t judge.

So Lindsay Lohan made this movie where she acted all dramatic-like, claiming that she was “back and ready to work”.

Then she went and got arrested a few days later for assault. She punched a woman at an NYC Club called Avenue.

Why are you at a club?

I have some advice for you…STAY HOME!!!!  Just stay inside your house.  Don’t leave ever, and if you do, hire a driver.

I can’t even.



And not that anyone cares, because Jared Leto stopped being relevant in 1996, but he shaved his eyebrows off….

Apparently he’s getting all Daniel Day Lewis for a movie role where he is playing a transsexual woman…with no eyebrows.

Whatever, I thought it was funny.



So it looks like Rihanna and Chris Brown are back on…

She tweeted this picture of Chris Brown asleep on a bed over the holiday weekend…then a few days later tweeted images of their matching Rolex watches.

Here’s the deal…ok, so you decided to get back together with him…I don’t know you, and I don’t know him…however, I DO know that he beat your face up.

I know this because you talked about it on Oprah.

And honestly, whatever if you decided to give him a “second chance”… but just come out  and say it.  Don’t tweet vague images and make it all cryptic.  You CLEARLY want the attention.

These two need to go away, in my opinion.  I just wish her music wasn’t so darn catchy!



This week a new winner of Dancing With the Stars was crowned…

Yes, I watch this show.

Yes, I adore Tony.

I am happy for them both and glad he didn’t get another dud like Kate Gosselin for a partner.

Good for them!



SO this week as been a cah-razyyyy week in the lives of Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez…

I talked a little bit about it on our Whatta Man this week…but apparently Aubry was dropping off his and Berry’s daughter Nahla at the home of Berry and her fiance Martinez.

It was reported that Berry and Martinez wanted to move to France and a judge told them they couldn’t as Nahla’s father, Aubry, resides in the States.  I guess this played a major role in the argument between the two men…it seems like Aubry got attacked by Martinez and basically got the poop beat out of him.

I don’t know much about the situation, but Halle Berry seems like she might be a little cray cray as well as her choice in men.

Major drama.

Plus, Aubry’s face.. I mean, that’s just wrong, Olivier.  just plain wrong.


Now we normally hit on a few movies that are coming out over the weekend, but honestly…there ain’t nothing…

Here’s a list…

Silent Night Dragon The Collection Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning Killing Them Softly The Frozen Ground What A Man Crossroad Hecho En Mexico Addicted to Fame California Solo Talaash – The Answer Lies Within

And not one of them seem at ALL interesting to me.

But I will say that the family and I went and saw Skyfall and Rise of the Guardians this past weekend and I thought they were both great!

“An epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world. Rise of the Guardians tells the story of a group of well-known childhood heroes (Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost and Sandman) – each with their own extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch (also known as The Boogeyman) lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.”
