This Week in Pop Culture… 12/6

A fair amount of news came out of Hollywood this week…


UNFORTUNATELY, most of it was people I could care less about.


However — let’s start with the best and go from there:


A royal baby is on the way!!


Kate Middleton is my birthday twin (OBVI!!) so I am super excited about this. Hopefully, the stars are aligned and she is having a boy, who will be a Prince Harry Doppelganger and marry my sweet Lucy.


Sadly, Kate has been hospitalized with severe nausea.  Hopefully she’s up and feeling better very soon!!


Mario Lopez got married.


Sadly, I don’t care very much about this, but apparently it’s news in Hollywood so whatevs.


Eva Longoria was present at the wedding, there was a cake made by Cake Boss, and the whole thing will be aired on TLC on Dec. 8th.


Also, can we all just agree to call him Slater?  You know you want to.


Kristin Chenoweth, 44, and Jake Pavelka, 34,  are dating.


This makes me throw up in my mouth a little.


Okay, a lot.


Kristen — you’re GLINDA.  Are you SERIOUSLY dating Jake the Slimy Pilot Snake??  WHY?????


This whole thing is just so confusing to me.  And gross.  And sad.  The end.


Let’s never speak of this again.


Harry Styles from One Direction and Taylor Swift apparently spent Monday and Tuesday night together in her hotel…




I just wish she’d find a boy her own age.  Or maybe a few years older.




In other news, look for a song titled, “Just Barely Not Jailbait” on her next album.



Hugh Heffner and Crystal Harris are engaged again and planning to be married on New Years Eve this year.


You might remember that Hugh and Crystal were engaged in 2011, and she dumped him five days before the elaborate wedding was scheduled…


Hugh has decided to give her a second chance though, because he is super old, and she is young and hot.  Or as they call it, BEING IN LOVE.


And lastly, Brandi Glanville and Leann Rimes are at it again…


This time, Brandi is saying that Leann is not fit to be alone with her sons, after an incident where her 9 year old, Mason, got a hold of a laxative that belonged to Rimes and ate it.


According to Glanville, Eddie Cibrian and Leann Rimes do not keep candy in the house.  Her son was so desperate for a sugar fix, that he snatched up a laxative he found on the floor, thinking it a rogue Skittle.


Eddie and Leann deny the allegations, saying that Brandi is just vindictive.


Well…you know what they say about a woman scorned, right?



In movie news this weekend…


Playing For Keeps premiers Friday.  It looks super cute, Gerard is looking mighty fine, and I definitely plan on seeing it, although it will probably be as a rental…

My days of theater movies are over for the foreseeable future.


George (Gerard Butler) is a retired soccer pro whose glory days are behind him. Attempting a reconciliation with his ex-wife (Jessica Biel), he becomes the most sought-after property in suburbia when he agrees to coach his young son’s struggling team. With bleachers full of sexy and restless soccer moms (Catherine Zeta-Jones, Uma Thurman, Judy Greer) – many of whom want private time with the handsome coach – George must keep his winning streaks, on and off the field, from unraveling.  –Movie Insider


Playing For Keeps is rated PG – 13 for some sexual situations, language, and a brief intense image.


That’s it for the week!!  I’d love to hear your thoughts.


Have a great weekend!!

    Great minds think alike! I would have put those in the exact same order. There are too many people on that list I just don’t care about(why are they news!) and others (hello Taylor and Kristen!) that are just making bad choices in men, well I think one can only be considered a manchild.
