Hello my friends!
This week has been a busy one in the land of the rich and famous!
First up the news that has taken over my television.
They cast the 50 Shades of Grey movie.
People have been speculating over the who’s for months now..
Finally they made the announcement and there was a collective “Huh?” heard round the world.
How do we feel about this?
He seems a little grungy for the role..but that’s who he plays on Sons of Anarchy: a grungy motorcycle guy. But then, in due research, I took a look back at some of his modeling shots and me thinks he might do fine.
As for Dakota Johnson…not so sure. I haven’t ever seen her in anything…and I actually think she will be really pretty with the dark hair.
I guess we’ll see?
In wedding news…
Katie Couric in engaged to her boyfriend, John Molner!
Also Scarlett Johansson is engaged…
Also Seth Meyers got married to his longtime girlfriend, Alexi Ashe.
Also, Kate Bosworth tied the knot this week.
In really fun news it looks like Gwen Stefani is expecting a third kiddo!
So looks like Lamar Odom has checked into rehab…
Of all the crazy that the Kardashians are, I really like Khloe and hope they can get this worked out. She really truly seems to love him.
And finally the new season of Dancing With the Stars has been cast!
Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — dancing with Sasha Farber
Former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson – dancing with Sharna Burgess
Actress Valerie Harper – dancing with Tristan McManus
Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty – dancing with Peta Murgatroyd
Singer, The Voice star Christina Milian – dancing with Mark Ballas
Bill Nye the Science Guy – dancing with Tyne Stecklein
Actress Elizabeth Berkley – dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy
High School Musical star Corbin Bleu – dancing with Karina Smirnoff
Glee actress Amber Riley — dancing with Derek Hough
Comedian Bill Engvall – dancing with Emma Slater
Jack Osbourne – dancing with Cheryl Burke
Actress Leah Remini – dancing with Tony Dovolani
I think Leah got cast as basically the opposite of the witness protection program. This way we know where she’ll be the next few months, so she doesn’t go mysteriously missing at the hands of the Scientology.
This weekend at the movies:
Basically nothing. Unless you really are dying to see Riddick with Vin Diesel…
Here’s the synopsis according to Movie Insider…
The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.
The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.
Have a great weekend!!
