This Week in Pop Culture ~ 10/3

PicMonkey CollageHey Poppy People!

This week hasn’t been a major one in Pop Culture, but let’s talk about what we’ve got!


First up, apparently there is a question of who is actually the father of Ronan Farrow…

8C9251212-tdy-131002-sinatra-farrow-03.blocks_desktop_teaseI’m not quite sure what the big mystery is, ahem.

Apparently the story is Woody Allen raised Ronan as his son, but apparently the lines were blurry when Mia and Woody got together, having just ended (maybe) a relationship with Frank Sinatra.

Well, looking at the photo above, and many photos actually that are out there, it doesn’t seem like a huge mystery.

Kinda scandalous, and also hilarious.


In sad news this week the famous author Tom Clancy died…

1380725729_tom-clancy-lgTom Clancy has written popular novels like The Hunt For Red October, Patriot Games, Clean and Present Danger amongst others.

Our thoughts go out to his family.



In “So What? Who Cares” news this week Angelina Jolie was spotted wearing a “mysterious” gold band on her left ring finger sparking rumors that she and Brad Pitt finally tied the knot.

Screen Shot 2013-10-03 at 8.55.53 AMDoesn’t make any difference in my life if they are or aren’t.  Just reporting the news, people.



So this is happening…

1380485239_courtney-robertson_1Apparently Courtney Robertson, the winner of Bachelor Ben’s season on the Bachelor is writing a memoir.

She wants to tell her side of the story….and I am sure say how she isn’t really a mega-jerk, like the show portrayed…


Anyone who actually buys this book can’t be my friend anymore.



It’s been reported that George Clooney has officially moved on from Stacy Keibler…

1380661920_george-clooney-monika-jakisic-lgReports say he is now dating Monika Jakisic, a Croatian supermodel.

She looks twelve, but is 33…so there’s that.

Is it wrong of me that I want him to get married?



So Kim Kardashian has been all over the place this week…

1380551170_september-29-2013She’s got blonde hair now and is all about showing off her post baby ta-tas.

I am never one to criticize a new mom on their post-baby body…ever.

Just make better fashion choices, girlfriend.  Please?  My eyes will thank you.



This week at the movies, we’ve got some good ones!

Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney…

130729According to Movie Insider

Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.



And also Runner, Runner starring Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck…141527According to Movie Insider

Princeton grad student Richie (Justin Timberlake), believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.



Hope you have a great weekend!!

      Agreed. I am over the Kardashians!!! Seriously can’t they just make responsible choices and stay out of the spotlight?
      Jocelyn, I am sure their halloween costumes will be quite scary (as in out there and crazy) and not suitable for children or really the public for that matter. As their normal clothes aren’t suitable for anyone 100% of the time.

    nice way of putting it – kim needs to make better fashion choices. it’s not her body that’s the problem, it’s her style!! she looked terrible while pregnant cuz she was dressing like a fool.

    also, george clooney just built a compound with Cindy Crawford in Mexico. mmm it looks naaaiiiice.

    PS: why must i have a baby making it so i can never go see movies?

    Not gonna lie – the commercials for Gravity give me slight heart palpitations. I’m not sure I can white-knuckle that one – Argo did that to me and I KNEW how that was gonna turn out! Runner Runner looks like good old fashioned movie fun though…

    I desperately want George Clooney to marry Sandra Bullock. IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!
