This Week in Pop Culture ~ 4/4

PicMonkey Collage3Well, this first week in April has been a moderately busy one in the land of celebrity.

Let’s discuss the ups and downs in the lives of our famous friends, shall we?


Earlier in the week Cory Montieth (Finn on Glee) checked himself in to rehab…

I know this isn’t a joking matter, but Finn on drugs kinda makes my head explode a little…don’t know the issues he was struggling with, but in my brain anything more than cough syrup is too much for me to process.

Hope he does well and takes care of himself.


In other Glee news it was announced that Heather Morris is pregnant!

Moving on to changing bodies…

Before_and_AfterHayden Panetierre got engaged, allegedly…

Also, I’m thinking I can spot her engagement present?  Just me?


In other fun news it’s been officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will take over for Jay Leno on The tonight Show in the fall.

1365008121_jay-leno-jimmy-fallon-lgTotally love this, as I am way too old to stay up and watch Jimmy in his current time slot.

Actually I’m too old to stay up and watch The Tonight Show, but you know, it’s slightly more doable.

Congrats, dude.


Sad news this week in the world of Buckwild…

1364991860_shain-gandee-article“Star” of the reality show Buckwild on MTV, Shain Gandee, died this week of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning.

I have to admit I watched a few episodes of this show, and while I found all of them to be nincompoops, Shain seemed to be a generally decent guy.

His death appears to be completely accidental.  After leaving a bar, he and 2 others wrecked their car, leaving it stuck in the mud…they are assuming that the accident knocked the men out, and the muffler was below the surface of the mud, allowing gas to leak into the car.

So very sad.


Let’s move on to some hero news.

That Heidi Klum…

PicMonkey Collage2On vacation in Hawaii, a strong riptide pulled her son and 2 nannies out into the ocean.  Heidi sprung into action pulling everyone to shore.

Super model, business mogul and now hero…whatta gal!


In scraping the bottom of the barrel news, Amanda Bynes now claims she has a body double.

She is alleging that the crazy woman with the red hair gallivanting about NYC is indeed, NOT her, but an IMPOSTER!

Screen Shot 2013-04-04 at 9.15.09 AMI totally don’t know what’s going on with this girl, but I sincerely hope this is all some elaborate hoax, ala Joaquin Phoenix.

She was such a cute, normal girl once upon a time…I really want to see her pull it together.


Now I will put 2 names together that I thought would never, ever reside in the same sentence.

Ryan Cabrera and Ryan Gosling.

PicMonkey CollageDoes anyone remember Ryan Cabrera?

He had that one song, “On the Way Down” and dated both Ashlee Simpson and Audrina Patridge when they were famous-ish.

Now, I have no idea what he is doing, except trying desperately to stay relevant at the expense of Ryan Gosling’s face.

Apparently he and his friends play a super smart game called tattoo-roulette.  They blindfold each other and allow the other to pick a tattoo, not seeing  or knowing the final product until it’s INKED ON YOUR BODY FOR LIFE.

If this were my kid, y’all…

Anyhow, it’s all very weird and awkward.  Also face tattoos…never a good idea.


Also, there are ZERO movies worth mentioning coming out this week.  ZERO.

If you’re still interested in knowing, here’s the link to Movie Insider’s list of upcoming the weekend of April 5th.


Have a great weekend!

    Does anyone else find it sad/funny that Cory Monteith first went to rehab when he was 19 and it just so happens that he is going to rehab at the same time he is playing a 19 year old on TV? Good on Lea Michele and the rest of the Glee cast for standing by him during this hard time.
    I am sure they can write Heather Morris’s baby bump into the script but it will mean she will probably have to leave the show (has it been renewed for a 5th season?!) and we won’t get any more of Brittanys funny one liners and stupid antics :( congrats to her and her boyfriend though :)

    Hi Ladies,
    I’m a Canadian living in Europe and I found your blog through Shelly’s. Just wanted to let you know that I love to read the Pop Culture posts, the Bachelor recaps, the online shopping and of course the weekly menu. Feels like I am staying in touch with some things from North America. Thanks a bunch!
