Survivor’s Colton: AppendixGate (SPOILER-Y!)

(Courtesy of al.com)
Although Colton Cumbie may be one of the most hated contestants in Survivor history, viewers won’t have him to kick around anymore. As Colton and new tribemate, Alicia (she is Ani DiFranco’s doppleganger) continued to berate Christina and talk shit, Colton was getting sicker by the minute. Lack of food and water is the main reason I’ll never attempt to get on this show. I have an f’ed up colon to start with; I can’t even imagine what those conditions would do to me. Apparently, Colton didn’t know either until it was too late.
Following another Manono reward challenge loss, footage started to show Colton’s head in Christina’s lap, I guess she was thinking if she would take care of Colton, he would change his call on the vote, nope! So we then see several shots of Colton writhing and whimpering in pain on his side. Christina made the call to bring in the medical team. After an intital assessment, the doctors determined Colton may have had acute appendicitis and that they would have to TAKE HIM OUT OF THE GAME to get further tests and to determine if he would need surgery. I screamed out! I could not believe what was happening. Colton was nearly inconsolable as he begged Jeff to let him stay. Nothing doing, Colton was told to say his goodbyes and in a very Colton move, he kept his hidden immunity idol “as a souvenir”. Hilarious! To say the least, Alicia was pissed, I cannot stand her! So with Colton gone, the tribes officially merged and no one was voted out. It’s going to get good with everyone scrambling around.
However, this afternoon, a new issue came to light. Colton did NOT have apppendicitis! According to his interview with E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos, Cumbie revealed his GI tract was inflamed and he was put on antibiotics, no surgery. I suppose at the time, the medical team had to make sure, but Cumbie’s appendix, as of now, is still intact.
It’s all being touted as karma, and it was, but I would say Colton is glad his medical issues weren’t worse than they seemed. Damn, he had a great chance to win. I pray we see him again if the show does another All-Stars season. PLEASE CBS!

Ke$ha?…I’m intrigued!…

However, I’m still forming an opinion…Here’s what I’ve learned about Ke$ha…she’s 22, her mother was a singer, she lived in Nashville at one time and I think she had some sort of songwriting deal there…she is the featured female vocalist on Flo Rida’s huge number one “Right Round”…and she appeared in Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” video…oh yeah, the other day I read, by no great suprise, she’s bisexual or heteroflexible…”Tik Tok” is growing on me…I really didn’t know what to make of it at first…mostly because when she raps she sounds eerily like Alix Olson or Ani DiFranco…brownie points if you know who Alix Olson is!!!…
Ke$ha’s debut album, Animal, was released yesterday and what better way to promote it than with a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show…I had never seen Ke$ha perform, so I was very interested and I was very impressed…although, I think she stole Adam Lambert’s keyboard player…no, not the one he deep-throated on the American Music Awards, the chick you keep seeing in his band on TV performances…eh:
