Glambert responds to Gayken…

I know, I know…I didn’t plan to blog about AMERICAN IDOL after the finale, however, the Clay Aiken vs. Adam Lambert controversy finally grabbed my attention…

Essentially, how this all began…Clay, who isn’t really doing anything right now besides raising his son, decided to blog about Adam’s performance of “Ring of Fire” this season on Idol by saying

“At that moment, [I] thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful, and slightly frightening,” Clay wrote.

Gayken went on to say Idol was more about flashy performances then actual singing these days…and that flashiness, although he didn’t say, referred directly to Adam Lambert…and I wonder, does anyone remember when Clay performed “Grease” on IDOL?

Yeah…uh huh…watch those hips honey! So, here’s some highlights of what Lambert said in response to Clay’s comments:

“I don’t know Clay,” Adam told Access Hollywood on Thursday morning after performing on the “Today Show.” “I’m glad he’s getting headlines now though, because he wasn’t before.”

“If he wants to ride my coattails about it, good for him,” Adam told Access, giving Clay the thumbs up sign.

BITCH SLAP!…however, there’s also been outrage over Glambert not coming out after the completion of the competition…and yet, several pictures continue to pop up online supporting Adam’s true sexuality…he’s probably one of those who thinks “why should I have to say it?”…maybe he’s protecting his privacy and his family–WTF?!
Then you have to remember, Aiken didn’t come out until September of last year, but we all knew!…we didn’t need flash cards!

Happy Weekend!

Dear Ricki Lake…

Why? Why CHARM SCHOOL?…I ask because I’m wondering how valid you are in 2009…you’ve had an up and down career…remember this?

Ricki as Tracy

You looked so happy, landing your first major acting role, Tracy Turnblad in John Waters’ HAIRSPRAY…you were fearless and girl, you were big…not only big, but proud!…this is how I’ll always remember you…okay, I did see MRS. WINTERBOURNE too…not great, but a cute movie…I guess it was not long after that, you decided to pursue a career as a talk show host…with microphone in hand, THE RICKI LAKE SHOW was on the air 1993-2005…it was okay and you were mocked to no end…fat seems to be easy to make fun of…

You lost the weight which is awesome, you had some kids, awesome, and you laid low for a while, which is really awesome…you made an brief cameo in the movie musical version of HAIRSPRAY…Nikki Blonsky has NOTHING on you!…and if you’ve kept up with her in the news, she’s dangerous!…

I do want to say, I did like your turn in the movie, PARK…you and your best friend, played by Cheri Oteri, took revenge on your cheating husband, played by one of the Baldwins, I don’t remember which one…and your character realized her true sexuality, kissed her best friend, and went to a gay bar at the end…loved it!

Here were now, and your CHARM SCHOOL is out of control…I guess it’s good to have a different dean each season…but Ricki, you gotta watch out for yourself!…I don’t think in a billion years I would use the bathroom after some of your girls…YIKES!

Good luck!

I am "Obsessed"…

When I saw the preview for A and E’s new show “Obsessed”, it freaked me out a little bit…the woman in the preview’s obsession is pulling her hair out!…so I get to thinking, this is gonna be a good show…I’m already a fan of “Intervention”, so I was definitely glued to the TV for the premiere of “Obsessed” last night…

Each episode focuses on two people, each with his/her own extreme OCD…case in point last night, Scott…Scott is a germaphobe who does not have any trash cans in his house–he carries every piece of trash directly to a trash can outside–he has no carpets, and he santizies his house and himself several times a day…he also chooses to sleep on his couch instead of his bed, because it would take him too long to make his bed perfectly…that sounds like me when I was living in Owensboro…and I too, am a bit of a germaphobe…I carry around at least one container of Bath and Body Works’ anti-bacterial lotion at all times…no, there are not gallons of Germ-X or Purell around my house, but I like to keep my hands clean…Scott’s OCD has affected his relationships…he’s gay and the reason he won’t let his boyfriend move in, is because of the possibilty of chaotic “contamination”…which is Howard Hughes’ talk…his therapist tests him, by telling him she has to use his bathroom and she has her period, so she’ll need a trash can…Scott freaks out! he starts to sweat…she washes her hands but then makes Scott press her used towel against his face…he slowly becomes unglued….

Scott eventually comes around and he allows his boyfriend to move in AND…he throws a party, where there will be food left out, cups left out…he doesn’t worry about any of it and tries to enjoy himself…you have to ask yourself: what is the line between OCD and just keeping neat/clean?…

The other case is Helen…she is MUCH worse off…her main OCD focuses on checking her alarm clock several times a night to the point where she doesn’t get any sleep…she’s a single mother with 3 children…she’s obsessed with her father’s death and this, is the freaky part…she kept a box of personal belongings, clothes from when he died…yes, a bloody shirt…and she PUTS THE CLOTHES ON to try and figure out or relive his accident…WHOA!…her main fear is driving on the freeway; she constantly checks her children to see if their seatbelts are fastened; her father was hit by a bus on the freeway (?)…so naturally, her therapist takes her for a drive on the freeway, she’s the passenger…she stalls a lot before they even get in the car…Helen also succeeds to a degree and she drives on the freeway with no big stress…she also burns her father’s clothes…

Oh, I am sooooooooooo watching this…”Obsessed” is on Monday nights at 10E/9C…

**I also ended up watching the season premiere of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″…big mistake!…Kate is angry and she mentioned parents of multiples have “triple the divorce rate”…and Jon?…he was so down when he was being interviewed…you get the sense they aren’t going to make it…no more for me!**

Are You Kidding Me?????

Southern Belles: Louisville

Okay…I was a little excited to see this show…SOUTHERN BELLES: LOUISVILLE…my sister demanded we watch it…her husband is from Louisville; he wanted to watch it too, to see if he knew any of the girls or the places on the show…I took notes–NERD ALERT–but really, I have nothing…this show is bit of a disappointment, to say the least…I’m used to all the REAL HOUSEWIVES shows on Bravo and I guess I’ve been spoiled…by the way, the New Jersey is pretty good so far; I cannot wait until Atlanta returns!…so the concept of Belles is supposed to be in the vein of Housewives, uh, not so much…Let me introduce the ladies (from left in picture)

JULIE: described as a “washed up model” and she’s only 34…and really, all we saw of her story was a casting agent suggested she would get work in the “soccer mom” market…eh…

SHEA: the “daddy’s little rich girl”…Dad is a doctor, Shea is a trust fund baby and I predict, will be the ruthless bitch of the group…we are introduced to her “yankee” boyfriend, Jeff, an attorney…Shea wants a “ring on her finger”, only thing is, Jeff would have to spend a six-figure, small fortune to please his g/f…I have a feeling, this won’t last….

EMILY: the “prodigal daughter” who turned her back on a four generation family business to pursue a career in broadcasting, specifically, TV news making only $30,000 a year (I would give both my kidneys for that!)…she’s a fan of extensions…girl, please!…and her parents are very bible belt, which in the next episode, Emily is offered a job in Las Vegas…oh boy!

KELLIE: the narrator started her story off, “she used to clean the stables at Churchill Downs…” lucky!…and all we learn is she has been married twice, the second marriage was to money, and Kellie is forced to live modestly and move into a small house…and she was not satisfied with her latest divorce settlement, sound familiar Housewives’ fans?…Kellie is seeking her independence…

and finally, HADLEY: a Ph D candidate, PA for a film producer in Louisville, she’s putting her degree on hold, she likes to shop the sales racks at stores…”I buy 5 dollar tee shirts..” what’s wrong with that????…she is dating Sterling, a good old southern boy…he rents out an entire ice skating rink for the day for Hadley, however, Hadley has always had a thing for her best friend, Russ; she describes him as “the ladies’ man of Louisville”…LMAO!…and Russ?…yikes!…he is wanting Hadley to cut Sterling loose so they can finally be together…the drama!

All that really happened in the debut episode was the girls organized a fundraiser at the Derby Museum for the Susan G. Komen foundation…Shea was underwhelmed with both the final total they raised and Jeff’s bad dancing…Kellie got hammered…and Sterling cancels at the last minute on Hadley for a family thing, which Russ jumps all over…that’s it!

I will give this show a chance, but if it lacks the good stuff…I don’t know…have a wonderful, 3-day, Memorial Day Weekend folks!

How to Eat Crow…

I’m okay folks…I had everything planned out for today’s blog, before the results last night…I was going to paste the picture of Katy Perry’s cape from last week which had in big red letters, “Adam Lambert”…after Kris Allen’s victory, I don’t feel like pasting a picture…On the brightside, Adam will have a huge career whereas Kris will be lucky to get a good one or two years…here’s my question after a record 100 million votes were cast: what exactly is the country’s definition of an American Idol?

By choosing Allen, you would believe America prefers a Jason Mraz (on the finale last night)/John Mayer/Dave Matthews Band frat boy…and now I realize, Danny Gokey would have probably won last night against Lambert too…who knows why we vote the way we do…I wanted Adam because he’s “family” and he’s what I call the ultimate pop star…I’m not going to accuse America of being homophobic, but a little of that played into Kris Allen’s victory…why do they think “the guy next door” would be better than the guy with eyeliner?…I think overconfidence had a part in Adam’s loss…however, he knows he’s in the better position and he won’t have to release “No Boundaries” as his first single…UGH! what a turd of a song!…

I hope Adam Lambert, after the Idols Live! tour and all of his 19 Entertainment committments, he takes his time in making his first album…the top 10 never rest until the production company says so, that includes Kris…I don’t want to be wrong anymore, so that’s why I’m proudly eating crow today…what does it taste like?…I would imagine the new grilled chicken from KFC…

(NOTE: I’ve already given up watching THE FASHION SHOW, however, I’ll be watching something entirely new tonight…SOUTHERN BELLES: LOUISVILLE…I will recap tomorrow!)

Punked!

Glee

I was so excited to set my eyes on GLEE last night after American Idol, which by the way, Adam’s got it friends!…GLEE rocked!…I think when my parents were in high school, they had a “swing choir”…I watched it with Mom last night…we loved it!…I was drawn in from the promos of “Don’t Stop Believin'”…GLEE’s creator is Ryan Murphy, who has given us the bizarre NIP/TUCK…the show is original, although the story with the jock joining glee club reminds me of Oz/Chris Klein joining choir in AMERICAN PIE…in fact the vibe of GLEE reminded me of another movie Chris Klein was in–ELECTION…

Okay, why did I title this “Punked!”?….We won’t get to see anymore new episodes of GLEE until this fall…WTF?!?!…NOT FAIR!…fortunately, the debut episode will be available all summer on fox.com…

**I have to work until 7 tonight, so I’m DVRing Idol…I’ll get to see most of it***

Adam…Don’t Fail Me Now!

I just can’t stop pleading my case for the newest American Idol…it’s all on the line tonight…the last time you’ll be able to vote!!!…I wish I could start voting now!…and I have a massive gay man crush on Adam, as evidence by the picture above…I would just say don’t relax too much…it’s already being speculated the “heartland” won’t be voting for Adam and it doesn’t help Kris Allen is from Arkansas…Like I’ve said, it won’t matter if Adam wins or loses, he’ll be a huge star!…in some cases, the winner is the cursed one; he or she either takes off or stalls just after the first single is released…(sorry, I’m being distracted by CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC, you know the movie/story of how the Village People were formed, yikes!)

I leave you with the moment I became an Adam Lambert fan….I couldn’t find an actual clip, just a picture with the audio…

The Anti-Diva…

Kate

Where should I begin?…all I know is, throughout this difficult time for the stars of JON AND KATE PLUS 8, no one has really focused on the kids…yes, they should be left out of the spotlight, but they should have the right to know what’s going on…

Kate Gosselin has been a problem from the start…OCD, bad hair, the alpha male in the relationship…I heard this weekend, the crew would film hours of footage for the show, but could only use up to 10-15 minutes…they would feel bad on occasion because Jon and Kate would yell at each other in front of the kids, again, non usable footage…the Gosselins had to know their show and their unique family wouldn’t go unnoticed…there were books, appearances on Oprah, a $1.3 million house, many paid trips, it was all too good to resist for the Pennsylvania family…

I’m not sure which season is set to premiere next Monday on TLC…I keep wondering if the network will pull the plug in light of recent events, which now includes Kate’s own brother and sister-in-law (as seen on the show) selling Kate out to the tabloids and sitting down for a web-only interview…if this relationship does fail, both are to blame, although I will lean more in blaming Kate…she has been shown as controlling, manipulative, obsessive compulsive, and just plain nuts…and again, that was all out of hours of footage…

American Idol recap…busy Friday!

**No bells and whistles today…I am busy busy and I will be helping set up our team’s campsite for RELAY FOR LIFE later tonight…I’m extremely tired, since I spent the day in Nashville yesterday, helping with another charity event and seeing old friends…good times!**

All right, well Danny Gokey couldn’t win over America one more time to make it to next week’s two-night finale…and I’m SO FREAKING HAPPY!…okay, yes, it might have made for a better finale with Gokey versus Lambert, but realistically, Gokey would have been the worst winner ever!…paging Taylor Hicks!…oh don’t worry, Gokey will get a record deal, but ugh, the marketing and the miserable sales to come…

And who would’ve thunk Kris Allen would make it to the finale???…I didn’t, considering he was forgettable in making it to the top 13…then, he flew under the radar until this past Tuesday night, when he delivered a better version of Kanye West’s “Heartless”…wow!…he had the chance and he did it!…he took down one of the stronger competitors this year and he did being himself, acoustic guitar, no band…perfect…but can he stop the Adam Lambert machine???…my thoughts, no…Adam Lambert has come to be one of the best contestants in the show’s 8 season history…I won’t go over the bullet points again, because we all know why he should and he WILL be the winner…

bye!

(one note: I didn’t get home in time to watch the entire second episode of THE FASHION SHOW, so no recap…will do next week!)
