This week in Pop Culture ~ 2/7

PicMonkey Collage

Yeah, Hollywood took the week off.

Nothing especially exciting happened.

I mean, I’m not really HOPING someone has a mental breakdown, or goes into rehab, or punches a paparazzo….but it WOULD make my life a little easier.


But in the meantime, let’s discuss what DID happen.

Well, we had this thing called the Superbowl last Sunday…did you hear?


And beyond all the football playing, Beyonce performed.  Now here’s how I felt about the whole situation…it started out (for me) a little slow-ish.  THEN she brought out her girl’s from Destiny’s Child and I might have cheered.  So it all ended well.  So well, in fact it’s rumored that the power went out in the Super Dome because the universe was paying respects to Bootylicious.


In more happy news…

1359671775_penelope-cruz-javier-bardem-467Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are expecting their second child together.  Muy Caliente!


Now let’s get a little uncomfortable…

1359741567_katie-couric-larry-king-lgKaty Couric reported this week that she once went on a date with Larry King many many years ago.  Eek.

Katy went on Jimmy Kimmel and told everyone that Larry took her out to eat, then took her back to his NYC apartment and “lunged at her”.

Ok gross.  She claims she politely declined his advances.  Lord, I hope so.


Next up in old people dating news…

1359833062_demi-moore-harry-morton_1Demi Moore is at it again.  She’s allegedly dating Harry Morton, a restauranteur. Morton is 20 years her junior…

So fine, ok, she dates younger men…

But she just seems like a hot mess.  Right?  I want her to be back with Bruce Willis.  Or at least Robert Redford.  Or heck, even Woody Harrelson.  Please Demi.  Make it happen.


Speaking of hot messes…

1359850742_amanda-bynes-evicted_1Amanda Bynes apparently got evicted from her NYC apartment this week, and is now living in a hotel.  According to US Weekly, she got evicted for smoking marijuana and cigarettes in a no-smoking building…oh and also for not paying rent.

Somebody please employ this girl.  She has way too much time on her hands!



And now onto the story that will never die… 1360162386_u940-467Brandi and LeAnn.

The latest story is Brandi cheated first.  Oh lawd.  Make it stop.

And is it just me, or have these ladies morphed into one person?  I mean, they’re starting to look exactly alike.

Anyhow, I want it to stop.



And in news that makes me smile…

1360082972_kristen-wiig-articleKristen Wiig has signed on to be in Anchorman 2.

Hilarious. Can’t wait.


Out at the movies this weekend:

Two movies that I actually want to see!


First up Side Effects…


A provocative thriller about Emily and Martin (Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum), a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist (Jude Law) – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects.  Directed by Steven Soderbergh ~ Movie Insider


Also out this week, Identity Thief...


Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (Melissa McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Jason Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back. ~ Movie Insider


Have a great weekend!!

    People might feel sorry for Brandi if she wasn’t such a big mouth. I’m sooo sick of her but I can’t stop watching RHWofBH because I want to know what was so shocking that she said about Adrianne that was so shocking that Bravo bleeped it.

      I know, I’m so over all of them! But, spoiler alert………

      I “heard” (AKA, googled it until I found something) that she was blabbing that Adrienne and Paul used a surrogate for their twins and Adrienne and Paul are upset because the kids don’t know that yet. Brandi says it’s because Adrienne didn’t want to lose her figure, Adrienne says it’s because she had complications with her first pregnancy.

    I saw both of those movies this weekend. :) Identity Thief was pretty good, but Side Effects was GREAT!
