Cheers & Jeers

Cheers to SNL’s Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Baby sketch! I never watch SNL live. My kids get up at 6:00 am so I can never stay up that late. I read all the Facebook updates and tweets about how awesome it was and when I finally watched it Monday, I agreed. It was hilarious. Actually, the entire episode was really good. My other two favorite sketch was Blue Ivy. Every character was spot on!


Cheers to Lindsay Lohan hosting SNL! I know some people think this is a jeers, but I still have a teeny tiny glimmer of hope for her. Plus, her previous episodes have always been pretty funny. This will be her hundredth chance to prove that she’s well and serious about acting again. She’ll host on March 3 with musical guest Jack White. Don’t screw it up, LiLo! She will also play Liz Taylor in the upcoming TV movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story. Hmmm...


Cheers to Struck By Lightning! Chris Colfer annoys the crap out of me on Glee, but he looks great in this movie and the rest of the cast is awesome. Watch the trailer.


Cheers to Call Me Maybe! Total guilty pleasure song! Canadian Carly Rey Jepsen sings this super catchy song that has been popular up north for a while now. After mention of it on Twitter by Justin Bieber and a fun little video including Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, the song is creeping up the iTunes chart. And I love it.


Cheers to Downwardly Mobile! Roseanne and Dan back together? Roseanne Barr and John Goodman are teaming up for a new sitcom about a trailer park. She is the owner and he is the handy man. I’m not sold on the premise, but I love both of them and was such a fan of the show Roseanne, that I’m totally giving it a shot.

Jeers to Chris Brown/Rihanna remixes. She should really stay away. If you're curious, you can find the remixes of her song Birthday Cake and his song Turn Up The Music on YouTube. I'm not gonna post them though. It's so twisted how they're using their tragic past for promotion. Not cool and I'm done talking about it.


Jeers to the Spice Girls NOT reuniting. I’m bummed. I loved them back in the day! There were rumors going around that they would perform at the Olympics or Jubilee, but Victoria Beckham confirmed that it wasn’t going to happen because they are all too busy. One item on their plate is the musical “Viva Forever” which I am looking forward to! What’s your favorite Spice Girls song? It’s so hard to choose, but I think mine are Stop and Say You’ll Be There. Oh, and Holler! It brings me right back to college when we had The Box on TV. (Did you have that channel? We never called it, but we watched it all day!)


Jeers to crappy TV. A few shows that I used to love are so boring lately. I can’t delete Grey’s Anatomy or How I Met Your Mother because I’ve been with them since the beginning, but they need to step up their game because I’m losing interest fast. I finally gave up on 2 Broke Girls and Are You There, Chelsea. I'll miss Beth Behrs.


Jeers to cashing in on Whitney Houston’s death. Bobby Brown is trying to sell a tell-all book. Whitney’s family sold the coverage of her funeral to benefit Bobbi Kristina. (Don’t you think she has enough money?) And Julien’s Auctions will be selling Whitney’s clothes and jewelry next month, after receiving them from people close to Whitney. This is all so tacky and disrespectful. Her funeral was just a few days ago! Boo!


Jeers to a serial killer in my hometown. No joke. This guy has killed two people and attempted another (all by stabbing) in the past nine months. He doesn’t fit the description of a typical serial killer because he’s young (they think 20 years old), his victims are totally random (19 year old woman, 50 year old man, 61 year old woman) and the attacks happened in the middle of the day, on pretty busy streets. My parents and sister still live there and when I went to visit this weekend, the town felt very eerie. The FBI is involved, there are posters of all over the city, everyone is on edge and they’re all being told not to walk anywhere alone. I was totally creeped out walking from my car to Starbucks just a block away. Scary stuff!

The Blue Ivy skit was hilarious. I loved the guy who did Brad Pitt. So funny!

I'm still watching 2 Broke Girls and Whitney, but stopped watching Chelsea.

I never liked Roseanne. Rihanna & Chris Brown... so disgusting.

I think we're giving up on Chelsea, too. I love Laura Prepon, but Chelsea herself is such a terrible actress, I just can't get past it. We love 2 Broke Girls, though.

Rihanna and Chris Brown just totally gross me out. Together and separately. I can't stand either one of them. Ugh.

I've been DVRing Chelsea but never got around to watching it. From what everyone is saying I shouldn't bother and just delete it...which is what I'll end up doing when we run out of space. This Chris Brown/Rihanna thing irks me. So stupid. That serial killer thing is freaky. At first I didn't get the 'hometown' part and thought that it was happening here. Still freaky.

I heard on the radio just this morning that LiLo is crediting that hard nosed judge with saving her. I hope she keeps it together this time.

I hated 2 Broke Girls from the beginning, and I've never been a fan of Chelsea Handler, so I'm not surprised that neither of those shows is really going anywhere.

That serial killer thing is freaky. I remember when the Night Stalker was running around LA county back when I was a kid. Freaky stuff!

"Struck By Lightning" looks awesome! I'll be watching the SNL with Lindsey, if only for the fact that Jack White is the musical guest and that skit is awesome!

Jessica Renee said...

OMG that SNL skit was so funny, Maya Rudolph was so good as Beyonce! I might still be in the hospital for the March 3rd one so maybe I can catch that one :p and I FULLY agree with all your jeers!

I'm not a fan of either of the girl's acting skills on 2 Broke Girls so I gave up on that about 2 episodes in :/

Call Me Maybe video was so cute!! I love when I get to see celebs in their natural states - acting normal and not all made up!
