SNL funny man, Seth Meyers will be entering the scary land of late-night talk shows. NBC announced on Sunday that Meyers will succeed Jimmy Fallon who is set to take over Jay Leno’s timeslot. This move does not come as a surprise, many people had predicted that Seth Meyers would get the job. After all, he was a fairly obvious choice, considering his success with NBC’s SNL. NBC said in a statement released on Sunday,
“We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His year’s at SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the ‘Late Night’ franchise.”
Meyers and Fallon won’t be in their new roles until sometime early next year, but Meyers is already excited about the incredible opportunity. He expressed joy on his Twitter account yesterday, thanking NBC and his mother, of course. He also had this to say before he went live on SNL on Saturday night,
“Working at ‘SNL’ requires 100 percent of your mental capacity — on easy weeks. And so I had not really spent a lot of time thinking about what I was going to do next. Obviously I can’t quit Lorne (Michaels). So this seems like a pretty good deal that I have an opportunity to keep working with him.”
Seth Meyers, huh? It doesn’t excite me, but at least it helps with getting Jay Leno off the air.Read more...
Well, we hate to say we told you so…but we did tell you so! Yesterday, we reported to you that FOX wanted to hire an all new judging panel for the next season of American Idol, and it appears like they are well on their way. Randy “The Dawg” Jackson has just announced that this current season of American Idol will be his last. That’s right, Randy Jackson is clearly not “in it to win it” anymore. Jackson released a statement through his publicist, and this what he had to say.
“Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to rest, after twelve years of judging on American Idol I have decided to leave after this season. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.”
Only Randy Jackson would start a statement with, “Yo! Yo! Yo!” that’s the kind of thing I will miss about him. I know most people couldn’t stand his silly catchphrases, but his silly catchphrases are the only part about him I do like. He is certainly lacking the skills it actually takes to be a great judge, but every time he says, “Duuuude…..dude.” my heart melts a little bit. Anyway, this announcement is not really surprising, however, it is still big news. Randy Jackson was the last original judge on the show, so the fact that he is leaving really says a lot about where Idol is now. Ratings are falling, fans are getting bored and people are questioning how many more seasons it will last.
Fox has not commented on Jackson’s statement, but the creator of “mjsbigblog.com” MJ Santilli has some pretty interesting thoughts on the announcement. MJ told USA today,
“It probably is time for him to go because his critiques have gotten a little rote. But on the other hand, he is such a part of Idol history. (Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest) are the links to the history of Idol, which is really what Idol has right now…They really do need a major overhaul at this point, but it’s going to be a loss because it’s a big piece of Idol history.”
Do you want to hear my thoughts on the subject? Of course you do! I think the move is smart for both Randy and Idol. The only thing that will save Idol is a “major overhaul” like MJ sated above. They need new judges (with personality) and maybe introduce some new plot twists. There is no guarantee it will work, but it is the only shot they have to keep this thing going. Otherwise, they will be lucky to last past next season. I will say that they should keep Ryan as the host. He is the best at what he does, and I think it would be a mistake to let him go.
We’ll see what happens…Read more...
Well, the big American Idol top 3 performances took place last night and one contestant proved to the front-runner. But before we get into the performances last night, let’s talk about the new rumors coming out of Idol Land. A source that is supposedly closely connected with the show told E! News that Idol producers really want to shake things up,
“Yes, we want to do a whole new panel — but just like last time around, it depends on who we get.” the source told E! News, revealing that the plan is to have all new judges next year, but only if they find the right people to replace them with. According to multiple sources, it is clear that Mariah Carey will definitely not be coming back next year. One source even said that it was “absolutely certain” that Mariah will not be on the show next year. “The others, it depends who we get (to take their place.)” the source said.
Well, obviously getting rid of Mariah Carey would be a smart decision. She has as much personality as a my big toe, so that is the easy decision. What about Randy, though? Randy has been there since day one, they’re not really going to let him go, right? He doesn’t have a lot of personality either, but at lease he has a few catch phrases that make him amusing. I don’t think Idol would be the same without hearing, “SHE’S IN IT TO WIN IT!!!” every damn episode. It’ll be interesting to see what they do next year, and they will have to do something. American Idol ratings are down 22 percent this year, and they’re only going downhill from here. They need to do something to keep up with, ‘The Voice.’
Anyway, enough about the rumors! The top 3 performed last night and they somehow managed to drag it out for two damn hours. Each contestant performed 3 songs and they showed videos of the contestants going home for the first time since entering the competition. All of the hometown videos were extremely emotional, but Kreee’s video was the most heartbreaking to watch. During her visit back home, her and her sister paid a visit to their old family home to remember their dead parents. It was an extremely emotional video that left the judges and audience in tears.
And while Kree might have had the most emotional video of the night, it was Candice Glover who stole the show with her incredible performances. She performed the last song of the night and ended it with a bang. She performed, “Somewhere” from West Side Story, and she received a standing ovation from all of the judges. Even Mariah Carey stood up after the song, which almost never happens because her dresses are usually too tight to stand up in. The judges loved the performance so much that it caused Keith Urban to say this, “If you don’t vote for Candice, call your doctor, you probably don’t have a pulse.”
It’s clear that Candice is the favorite right now.Read more...
There once was a time long ago where bikini pictures of Kim Kardashian were something that was celebrated. Sure, some people might hate her, but I think everyone agreed that she had a little “something something” working for her. However, as we all know Kanye West went and got her pregnant and ruined everything! Kanye West has a way of screwing things up, just ask Taylor Swift. Anyway, Kim Kardashian’s very pregnant belly can be seen on the cover of this week’s US Weekly magazine. You can view the cover photo down below. The words, “Kim dares to bare: YOU CALL THIS FAT?” can be seen plastered next to her bare belly.
“She’s loving the seventh month. And she thinks pregnancy is so cute.” a source told the magazine. It really does seem like Kim Kardashian is enjoying this whole pregnancy thing, which is just strange to me. I don’t see how any woman could enjoy pregnancy. Not only does it look extremely uncomfortable, but you don’t even get anything good at the end of it. A baby? That’s not a prize, that’s a chore! An accident waiting to happen, money going down the drain and your free time going down the drain. I think women should be applauded for being brave enough to go through all of that for nine months.
Anyway, back to Kim Kardashian. Her sister Khole Kardashian recently told E! News that Kim is indeed enjoying the pregnancy, but admits it was a bit awkward at first.
“She’s really great. I think she’s finally feeling great about her pregnancy. There’s an awkward time — you’re not really showing, (but) you don’t feel like your old self. So now that her bump is alive and in full effect, she’s having fun showing it off.”
And while she is starting to enjoy pregnancy a little more now, it wasn’t always the case. She’s always been excited about being pregnant, but just last month she admitted to Ryan Seacrest that the pregnancy has been very painful. She told Ryan Seacrest on a E! News special,
“I was waiting for this amazing experience where I can just do whatever I want, eat whatever I want, feel great…and it hasn’t been that way. I’ve had a lot of pain everywhere. I’m in pain physically. I get really paranoid (and) I start Googling things. The things that come up are really scary. It freaks me out all the time.”
I never Google around when I’m sick. Last time I did, I was like
Okay, quick recap time. Rumors spread about a Farrah Abraham sex tape being shopped around to websites. Then we found out that the alleged sex tape was really just a planned porn video Farrah did with one of the top male porn stars in the business, James Deen. A big cloud of embarrassment followed Farrah around and she was forced to come up with some excuse for her pathetic behavior. Farrah then claimed that the video was for “personal use” and that she basically did it for the memories. The memories of getting pounded by a porn star.
Anyway, a week or so later, Farrah decided to sell the video that was supposedly made for just “personal” use. Vivid Entertainment ended up buying the video for $1.5 million, which means Farrah got paid $1.5 millon just to have sex with a porn star. Flash forward to today and we now have an official release of the highly anticipated video. It’s only been about a month since Farrah actually made the video, but I guess things work fast when there is money to be made. One of the most interesting things about this whole thing is that Vivid Entertainment is still trying to market it as a “leaked” sex tape. Even though we all know it was made professionally with multiple cameras and a freaking hair and make-up crew.
Vivid Entertainment writes about the video,
“From Iowa cheerleader to MTV Teen Mom Star, Midwest beauty Farrah Abraham breaks free with her most daring video ever, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom. Made originally as a personal ‘boudoir’ tape, Farrah decided to release the video to her fans due to an overwhelming response once news of the tape became public. Shockingly explicit, she takes James Deen as you’d never imagine, in a backdoor scene you’ll never forget. With her tight young body and totally uninhibited sexuality, it’s no wonder why she wanted to capture this moment in time. And now you can too!”
Who the hell writes these things? And what is up with this whole “Farrah Superstar” thing? Is that her porn name now or something? I realize no one really cares about the names of porn stars, but do they really have to be so stupid? Farrah Superstar makes it sound like she’s going to be farting glitter out of her butt. Anyway, you can view the frightening (NSFW) trailer if you want by clicking here.
So, what does Farrah think about the sex tape being released?
“Well looks like Vivid released their version of my video…ya I’m not watching, but thank you all for the positive compliments #XXX”
First of all, aren’t all compliments positive? That’s why they’re called compliments! And one other thing, why isn’t she going to watch the video? Just last week she was saying one of the reasons she sold the tape was to celebrate her awesome body. Does she not want to celebrate it anymore? Is it no longer awesome? I’m so confused.
Update: Farrah is blowing away Kim K’s tape. According to TMZ:
Farrah’s 70-minute debut, “Backdoor Teen Mom,” lured in more than 2 million visitors in just 12 hours Monday … annihilating the record previously held by Kim K and Ray J — which attracted 600,000 during the same time frame.
One of the stars of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” NeNe Leakes talked with Andy Cohen for a special one-on-one edition of “Watch What Happens: Live” and we think it’s safe to say, NeNe Leakes likes herself some NeNe Leakes.
She told Cohen that she was the main star of the reality show and took credit for casting everyone who has appeared on the show. She also revealed the one cast member she will never talk to again,
“Sheree (Whitfield) out of all the girls, is the very one person I will never have anything else to do with. I think Sheree is very evil, I think she’s very mean and she is a true bitch.” she also admitted that she made a mistake in recruiting Sheree for the show. “She’s not grateful. She feels very entitled.” NeNe said of Sheree. While Sheree Whitfield has fallen out of the spotlight after leaving the show last year, NeNe Leakes career in television has just begun.
Bravo announced recently that NeNe would be getting her own spin-off titled, “I Dream of NeNe” which will document her wedding to her ex-husband. On top of her new spin-off, she also plans to continue her stint on the Real Housewives. NeNe is also currently starring on NBC’s “The New Normal” and she’s even landed a role on, “Glee.”Read more...
