It's never like it is in the movies

In case you don’t already know this about me, I am a celebrity gossip whore! I love all the magazines, People, US Weekly, OK, and star. I’m addicted, I can’t help it. As a part of my 2010 new years resolution I vowed not to purchase any of those magazines this year. It’s been tough, but I’ve been handling it pretty well. What I've learned is that a weekly family trip to the bookstore is quite refreshing. The boys and I go grab some books and magazines and spend some quite time reading (them) and catching up on Hollywood (Me). I love it! I love it not only because I now read the magazines for free, but I also love it because it encourages my kids to read as well. It’s a win win situation all around.

I have realized that I don’t need to purchase the magazines to get the gossip! I know, crazy concept, huh? I still get my celebrity gossip fill, while saving a few bucks, and no wasted paper on my part. Hey…I think this new years resolution may be my answer to becoming green!

Ok, Ok, you are probably asking yourself what the point of my post is today. Well, it has nothing to do with buying magazines, saving money or going green…nope. Today’s post is about some things in Hollywood that really irk me. And if they irk me, they are bound to irk you, so I thought I would share them with you, my two cents...

Renee Zellweger’s new haircut- apparently it’s all the rage. Check it out…

…yep, I don’t get it either! Not only does this chick have the absolute worst hair cut ever but I am dying to prop open her eyelids with toothpicks. Apparently she got her hair cut in her dining room by a celebrity stylist. Apparently, this “pixie do” is the latest rage in Hollywood. Color me crazy, but I’m suddenly glad that I don’t get my haircut in Hollywood. This is by far one of the worst cuts I have ever seen on a celebrity.

Well, except maybe this one…

…but I’m not sure, it’s definitely a close 2nd!

•Countess LuAnn de Lesseps newly released single- Some of you may not be familiar with the Countess, but if you are a watcher of the Real Housewives of New York, you know exactly who I am talking about. This is her…

…She used to be married to a Count, but he cheated on her and now they are divorced. Classic Hollywood Fairy Tale…Anywho, she is currently writing a book on manners. And to promote her book, someone has convinced her that she should sing a song about manners too. It’s called Elegance is Learned. I was thinking about posting the youtube version of the song here but it is so horrible I didn't want to scare you off. I guess I just don’t get why Hollywood convinces these people that they should do these kinds of things. I mean seriously, just because she is a countess and has money doesn’t mean she can sing. Frankly, I think they are making a fool out of her and in my book that does not equal elegance!

•Betty White on SNL- Don’t get me wrong…I love Betty White just as much as the next person, but I am not ready for the cougar jokes…please, please, please SNL, I beg you…save the cougar jokes for Courtney Cox.

Tough Love Couples- In case you haven’t heard of this show, it is a “relationship style bootcamp” show on VH1. The goal this season is for six couples to go through tough love lessons to try to save their relationships. At the end of the season the couples will either get married or break-up. I like the idea of the show, I really do, but what I don’t like about the show is the “counselors/therapists”. It’s these two…

…it’s a single guy and, wait for it...his mom! A single guy and his mom counseling couples on how to have a successful relationship? Really? An unmarried guy and his mom are the best people to give couples advice on successful relationships? It just doesn’t make sense. It’s almost like a football coach coaching a basketball team. Maybe I’m just old fashioned but I think if you are going to see a counselor about your relationship, it should be a marriage counselor and not a single mother, single son tag team duo.

Simon Cowell- the fact that this dudes ego is so huge totally irks me! Look at this picture…

…you can see how much he loves himself by the look on his face and the cocky strut. My only question to you Simon is this, are they real or fake? (look at his pecs…they don’t fit his body) I think he took some of the filler from J Lo’s ass and had it injected into his pecs. But that’s just my opinion…

And last but certainly not least…

The surge of men in Hollywood that think it is ok to cheat on their wives. This needs no explanation, just names. Tiger, Jesse, Tiki…what is your problem?

…I got news for you guys…you will NOT do any better than these women! If you think you have, give it a few years and you will eventually wake up and smell the coffee and it will be too late!

There you have it...that's just my two cents!


  1. I'm with you... I totally don't understand what Tiki, Tiger, and Jesse were thinking! Nice to meet you! (from SITS)

  2. Renee Z used to be so cute (circa Jerry Maguire) now she just looks sweaty and wasted. Oh, the cheaters ... poor misguided fools.

  3. The Countess is doing a pretty good job of making herself look like a fool this season, no? I mean, yeah, editing and so forth but, really? It's getting a bit thick!

    But, then again, I'm on Team Frankel so I might be a smidgen biased ;-)

  4. I hate men right the last fact...yep...can we just have a mandatory castration session in Washington? All men have it chopped where it hurts to prevent further pain to any female?

    Eh...I hate men!!!

    Oh & Renee - sheesh---who told her THAT looked good??? Did they forget to take their meds that day perhaps?

  5. omg. the countess' song was HORRIFIC. Maybe she should do a duet with the wigged one on RHOA. I mean, I didn't think anything could be WORSE than "Tardy for the Party" but the Countess has proved me wrong.

    I actually kind of like Renee's hair. Is this b/c I also recently cut my hair short? Not a fan of Renee, tho. EAT A COOKIE, for reals!

  6. Oh Countess, no no no! Did we not learn anything from Kim from Atlanta that Housewives can't sing?

  7. I'm not big into celebrity gossip, but I don't mind a little (I'm human, after all.) But I agree. That is a terrible, terrible hair cut.

  8. I used to buy all the mags too, then I discovered all the gossip was online. I feel like I've saved so many trees since I stopped buying them! =D
