This Week in Pop Culture… 5/9


It’s Friday Eve!!

Let’s talk a little pop culture, shall we?


Bethany Hamilton is Engaged

Bethany Hamilton, the surfer who lost an arm in a shark attack and wrote the book Soul Surfer (which became a movie) is engaged!!  Bethany and Adam met a year ago on a blind date where they went cliff diving, and have been happy ever since.  Jon David and I absolutely loved her story, and find her so inspirational.  I wish them both a long and happy marriage.


Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Split

Well.  This is kind of depressing news.  After 3 years of dating, Ian and Nina, stars of The Vampire Diaries, have split.  Aren’t they a gorgeous couple?  On a good note, now he’s free to Somerhalder me.

Just kidding.  Kind of.


Liam’s brother Chris Hemsworth Staged an Intervention

Apparently, Liam’s big brother Chris had an intervention with Liam, urging him not to marry Miley Cyrus.  Um…obvious, much?  The girl is a hot mess.  I knew I loved Chris (and not just for his giant Thor muscles).

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Backstage And Audience

Chris Brown and Rhianna Split

So apparently Chris Brown and Rhianna are over.  Again.  Agaaaaainnn.  And they insist on tweeting vague references and being all weird.  OVER. IT.

This weekend in theaters:


The Great Gatsby, finally!!  I’ve read the book (it’s good, but not my favorite), and the movie looks like a lot of fun.  I can’t wait to see it!!

The synopsis, via Movie Insider:

The Great Gatsby follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

The Great Gatsby is rated PG – 13 for violent images, sexual content, smoking, partying, and brief language.

That’s it for this week!!

Have a great Mother’s Day weekend!!
