This morning will be the usual with some links and commentary although there is really not much out there to look at. The afternoon post will be another Jackass v Kindness post because it has been awhile since I did one of those.
Last night I called a really good friend of mine to get a phone number to thank someone which relates to the kindness portion of the afternoon post. It was just going to be a one minute call and it turned into an hour. This friend is on a tv show and has been for some time and he does movies also. I have asked him before if he considers himself A list and his answer is usually something sarcastic or self-deprecating. See, he is A list and all of you would know his name, but he would not be the first person you would think of when A list is mentioned. Unless someone is constantly self-promoting then you just hear about the star when they want you to hear from them.
For example, this friend of mine does not have a publicist. He just relies on the network's publicist or the production company of the show and when he does a movie, follows the same type of formula. He also gave me the jackass story for this afternoon and it is pretty entertaining so be nice in the comments section because he will be reading them.
I know I have been talking about publicists frequently and so you probably want me to shut up about it, but think about Gwyneth Paltrow. Is her publicist good? Absolutely. Is there anything the publicist could do to fix the mess Gwyneth got into when speaking about America? They tried, and got a response in the press two days running, and made up a really bad explanation which is good, but this is a case where the star should have called the publicist before the interview and not waited until after when not much could be done.
I have had some e-mails from people who want the colors reversed on the blog because it hurts their eyes. They would prefer a white background and dark writing. I would like to know if this is the case for everyone before I make any kind of switch.
I have also had some e-mails about defamation and I can go into a long spiel about it like I did when discussing Perez's case, but I do not know if anyone would be interested. What it really comes down to is if you are a public figure is that you have to prove that the offending party did so knowing what they were reporting was untrue and did it anyway. That is a very tough burden for the celebrity/public figure.
Without Tim Gunn, no one will watch Project Runway so they better fix this problem quick before next season begins. Could you imagine if they had a Ryan Seacrest type style instead of Tim Gunn? Tim Gunn is in about 10% of the show max, but he is what brings it all together.
Get on a plane thinking you are still with your baby's daddy. Get off the plane and he is dating someone else.
You guys always are asking for inside information. I believe I told you all this a week ago, and the Sun is just now reporting it. Hmmmm. How did I know?
