Ain't nobody gonna come between Rachel, her man or her obsession with reality fame.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Are you blacking out from those tequila shots yet?
Who needs a produced pilot when your YouTube videos can become TV shows themselves?
Billy Ray Cyrus will make a guest appearance on The View. This is a fantastic blood bath waiting to go down...
Why on earth would I watch The Biggest Loser any more?
Today's news is heavy on the guilty pleasures!
What is art? Why do we dream? What is death? I dunno, what do I look like? Rainn Wilson?
Elisabeth Hasselbarf is rumored to be leaving lady chatfest The View and it's not even my birthday! Word is the token right-winger will depart for greener pastures, and by greener pastures I mean token right wing news outlet Fox News. Is this Fox's attempt to compete with MSNBC's lightening rod lezzie leftie Rachel Maddow? Because I think we all know who would win that cage fight -- assuming Hasselboobs hasn't had her acrylics redone in the last 48 hours.
Sorry to post this, like, two weeks after the issue came out, but I just read the interview with Chevy Chase in New York Magazine, and...man, that dude is a dick. Forgets the interviewer's name; is pointedly apathetic about the strike and the current season of SNL; won't watch the Brothers & Sisters episodes he filmed except "to see what they cut"; talks about how the applause he got for his appearance on "Weekend Update" "took attention away from Seth and Amy," so he's not going to do the show again for a while; complains about how he took time off to raise his kids, and now it's hard to get work, like every actress with children, or other actor over 60, doesn't face the same issues, even if they're extremely talented, which, I love European Vacation but a thespian Chase ain't; and bags on the women on The View: "It's not that difficult to speak like a human being without a writer. Aren't these women reasonably intelligent?"
Remind me...how'd your talk show do, Chevy? Oh, that's right -- it bombed, because even with a writer, you were visibly uncomfortable and unable to connect with your guests. It was so bad, in fact, that people still talk about how bad it was, and it was on for maybe 5 episodes. Like 15 years ago. So, you kind of don't get to talk shit about The View when your own attempt at that gig was a suckball.
People in the TWoP bullpen are talking today about how bad your B&S appearance was, and how the editing seemed weird...almost like you didn't give them enough usable takes. So if you're wondering "what they cut," I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's "most of what you filmed," because apparently you think you're above making an effort. The entire character seemed phoned in and flat, and whatever you had done to your face, I hope you kept the receipt.
It doesn't seem that arrogant and unprofessional, written out this way, but go read the interview; he's so fucking full of himself that he's seriously this close to popping. I ripped him a new one in the TWoP book, and I've wondered from time to time if I was too harsh, but...nope. The guy's an ass and a half. I mean, don't put me in the position of defending The View, a show I think is asinine.
Well, let's be clear here: I'm not sure that any version of The View is necessary, and I'm not looking forward to CBS' clone (with Julie Chen) coming this fall, either. But what I definitely know is that there isn't a void in the TV landscape that needs to be filled by a panel of men discussing the issues of the day. However, Barbara Walters apparently disagrees.
