Cheers & Jeers

Cheers to Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard! Kristen gave birth to their baby girl on Saturday. Dax tweeted, "Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!" Kristen added, "My new roommate poops her pants and doesn't pay rent...basically Dax pre-sobriety :) welcome baby Lincoln xo." They are the cutest! And I love her name.

Cheers to Prince Harry! He's coming to America in May. He'll spend time in Colorado for the 2013 Warrior Games, visit Arlington National Cemetery, Walter Reed, areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, and play polo in Connecticut. I wonder if a Vegas trip is out of the question. I know I'll never see him, but it's always exciting to have my favorite ginger in the country.

Cheers to Justin Timberlake! He's on fire. He had a hilarious week-long stint on Jimmy Fallon, he's got the fifth biggest album release of the decade (behind two Taylor Swift albums, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne), an upcoming tour with Jay-Z, another album release in November, and he's working on a fall solo tour. I will definitely get tickets to see that! I really wanted to go to his concert with Jay, but they aren't coming to Seattle and I'm busy the night they play Vancouver BC.

Cheers to Ryan Lochte! I'm going to hate his new show, but I'm going to watch it, and probably love it a little. Cause he's so pretty. (And don't make fun of me for it. I know most of you are Kardashian, Teen Mom or Bachelor fans!) Check out the 4-minute trailer and ad for What Would Lochte Do? beginning April 21.

Cheers to Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler! They are teaming up for another romantic comedy. In the movie, they are trapped in a hotel with each other and their kids from previous marriages after a disastrous blind date. I haven't been thrilled with Adam Sandler movies lately, but The Wedding Singer is one of my favorites and I forgot how cute 50 First Dates was until I recently watched it at Julep while getting a mani/pedi. I'm excited!

Cheers to Mindy Kaling! The Mindy Project got picked up for a second season and she's writing a new book. It'll be another memoir focusing on the highs and lows of the last 18 months. She's funny and smart and I love her. I can't wait to read!

Cheers to Tom Hardy! Check out a photo of him and his costar on the set of his new movie, Animal Rescue. Awwww....

Jeers to Taylor Swift. See that information above about Prince Harry's visit? He will also be meeting such stars as Jennifer Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Upton and Scarlett Johansson at parties thrown in DC and NYC in his honor. The Sun is reporting that stupid Taylor is desperately trying to get her named added to the VIP list because she loooooves him. Her publicist says it's not true, but it kinda sounds like Taylor, right? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Her new video is terrible. Or I'm just old.

Jeers to Prince. He's going on a west coast mini-tour next week and playing four shows in Seattle. I've always wanted to see him, despite hearing how crappy he was in 2011. (His show was less than 90 minutes long, consisted mostly of guitar solos, he sang to pre-recorded tracks, only performed a few hits, and said, "I don't want to sing this song," and stopped Darling Nikki in its tracks, just because he didn't feel like it. But there was lots and lots of glitter, so that's fun!) However, the show is at a tiny venue and tickets are $250 each! I can't swing that. Even for Prince.

Jeers to James Franco and Ashley Benson. Remember when I shared their music video for Justin Bieber's Boyfriend and how totally weird it was? Well, they're at it again with Selena Gomez's Love You Like A Love Song. It looks like it was probably made the same night as Boyfriend because they are in the same clothes and wigs and that other is there. But why?! I don't understand it! 

Jeers to Smash. It's so boring this season. I didn't like the extra story lines (like Ivy's musical and Jennifer Hudson's arc) and I don't like Karen's love interest at all. He's not cute and he's too grouchy. I was going to delete my season pass until I found out the show is being moved to Saturday nights. Saturday. Not even Friday. That basically means it's cancelled and now I must finish it because I'm OCD like that. (I'm the feel the same about The Office and HIMYM. They are terrible shows, but I can't stop.)

Jeers to Kim Kardashian. I always jeers her, don't I? Well, she's an idiot. During her divorce trial, a producer said she made them re-shoot her marriage proposal because she was completely surprised and didn't like how her face looked during the first take. He also said that all of her on camera pre-wedding jitters were filmed after she filed for divorce from Kris. I can't believe they are still getting divorced. Her two month marriage ended in 2011 and she's about to pop out a baby with another man any day now. Oh wait. She's not due until July. She's got a Jessica Simpson-like pregnancy going on.

Jeers to shark diving. This video of a great white shark getting into a diver's cage in South Africa last week is totally scary. I feel bad for the two guys inside and everyone on the boat waiting to see if their friends were going to be eaten (all while recording it). But how about humans just stop being stupid? I don't see the point in this "entertainment" at all. Sure it's cool to live on the edge and take chances and be EXTREME, if that's your thing, but go do something that's only putting yourself in danger. I think it's terrible to do this to sharks. You are baiting a wild animal, idiot! Also, don't own tigers or chimps or bears or pythons. They'll kill you. I wonder if the shark was ok. The story about the shark that died for a Kmart commercial pissed me off too. Why not get other footage or CGI a shark? Ugh, I really like sharks.

Jeers to Jon Hamm. Not really. At all. Ever. But, in case you aren't familiar, Jon has a rather large and noticeable, ahem, bulge and we aaaalllll see it. There's even a tumblr dedicated to it. In a recent interview he expressed his hatred of being objectified. He said, "They're called 'privates' for a reason, I'm wearing pants, for fuck's sake. Lay off. I mean, it's not like I'm a fucking lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal." Since the clothes of the 60s are pretty tight, he's been asked to start wearing underwear on the set of Mad Men. Both Jockey and Fruit of the Loom have offered him a lifetime supply. That's just plain hilarious. Why can't he see the humor in this? Grump. Also, wear some tighty whities under your costumes if you're so concerned. (But don't). I cannot wait for Sunday night!

That Ryan Lochte show looks interesting. He definitely is nice to look at.
I definitely don't get the James and Ashley videos either, so strange!

Gretchen said...

You crack me up! :) The Ryan Lochte show looks pretty funny...and I really don't watch reality shows. :) We seem to think the same about a lot of things! :)

MiMi said...

I had all kinds of stuff to say but the Hamm thing has me laughing my ass off!

Misty said...

I'm not judging you for watching, but I think Ryan Lochte is a tool.

Hamm is packing some serious heat. He should laugh that shit off.

Love Dax, Kristen and baby Lincoln. JT better be coming to his hometown for his solo tour. Hopefully I can get tix.

I love Adam and Drew together! Yay!!

And Tom Hardy... Oh that man is sitting at the top of my list.

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

Love your posts like this!!

Drew + Adam.. love them together!
Also, I'm totally in love with Dax & Kristin.. and the adorable baby name!! Hate Taylor, hate Kim K, hate Prince. I want to be Hamm's wife for a day.. bow chicka wow wow!

Karen Peterson said...

Oh how I love Ryan Lochte. Even if he's a total douche.

Yay for Adam and Drew!

tara said...

kimmyk is so annoying. i cannot stand her. blech. and JT better come to houston for his solo tour!

Jodi said...

I love 50 First Dates so if this movie is as good as that was I'll be excited!!

I love Smash. So sad it is getting moved to Sat nights. I really wish they would stop focusing on all depressing story lines and make it a bit happier so people would want to watch!

And JT yes Cheers. Always cheers.

Jo said...

Love the Wedding singer ... you know the song that he sings to her with Billy Idol on the plane, I wanna grow old with you? Well my husband sang it to me at our wedding reception .... So I can't wait to see the new movie, just love Adam and Drew together.

Love Kristen and Dax and love the baby's name.

You know what, I feel sorry for Taylor Swift. I think she is so desperate to find the perfect love that she totally freaks everyone outs by being all in right from the get go. She needs to chill, learn to be happy on her own and then boom when she least expects it she'll find love.

250$ for a ticket?? That is just crazy! Would explain why it is being held in a small venue cause at that price not many people will be willing or able to go.

Smash -- I loved it but yes this new season is sort of .... bluh and I don't like the new love interest at all.

Don't even get me started on Kim K! what the hell is up with her not wearing any proper maternity clothes! No she would rather force her very pregnant body in to regular clothes and look ridiculous! ugh! There is a reason why they make maternity clothes!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

Seriously Hamm, like you don't like the world talking about your giblets. Enough!


Same for TSwift.

LOVE love love Dax & Bell. And their baby's name.

jessica renee said...

I so love these posts!!!

I am so in love with Kristen and Dax and at the complete other end, I HATE HATE Kim K. I am so over her and her family!! I don't even get how they're not divorced yet?!

I had no idea about the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore movie! I love both of them and their movies, I'm excited now!!

Ok, old crochety grump ass Jon Hamm! I love Mad Men and him but I had no idea he was so pissed about his privates. If you've got big privates, be proud and just move on, that's what I say.

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

Don't you ever jeers my Hammy Hamm again!!! He is shy about his man meat!

Taylor Swift needs to be shipped somewhere far away with Kim K. We can keep Kanye as long as he stops wearing kilts. Who am I kidding, I loved that shit.

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

hahaha oh man you are hard on T.Swift and Kim K....I like this side of you!! You know about my love for Kristen Bell and her tweet was freakin adorable...I like the name too!! Think Lotche will have Phelps guest star? I'd watch that ;)

Kate said...

And I got distracted by that last jeers ;)

You know how I feel about Taylor. ugh. The only reason I don't hate her is because she is tall. Otherwise she drives me nuts.

Can't wait for JT solo tour! I am seeing him with Jay Z this summer (with Leeann) but I will see the solo tour too

Excited about Adam and Drew doing a new movie. I love the Wedding Singer

I'm sorry but I don't like the name Lincoln, especially for a girl. In H's classes we have met at least 3 Lincolns-too trendy now!
