They Must Have Been Desperate For Filler


When you read as much gossip as I do to find something to comment on, most of the time you realize when something is a piece of crap. I say most of the time, because even I screw up and talk about something that has already been debunked or whatever. It happens. There is so much crap out there that you can't read it all, and so it is not uncommon to see some site writing about an event that took place a few weeks ago because they just didn't see it the first time.

Anyway, OK! must have been really desperate for filler this week because they wrote a story that makes absolutely no sense on any kind of level. The article is about Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson. The gist of the article says that while in Hawaii, Tony said that his ex-girlfriend Carrie Underwood was a better singer than Jessica and that he thought that Jessica's new country CD would bomb.

First of all, I'm not sure that Tony and Carrie ever dated. She says no, but then again she is the wicked witch so who really knows. Maybe he just screwed her and so that doesn't really count as dating does it? Let us pretend for a second that Jessica and Tony are just a regular couple. I know that as a member of the male gender that we can be a bit dense about relationships. However, if you have been in at least two relationships, you know from very painful experience that if you have to mention an ex-girlfriend, and I advise all men to really think through whether you should mention them at all. However, if you do mention them, you do so very sparingly, and you speak of them in positive terms even if you poke pins into a doll of her image nightly. The most important thing though is to never, ever, never say the ex was better than the current girlfriend in any form. You just don't do it and every guy knows this. Every guy knows the surest way to misery is to say the ex was better at something. I don't care if the ex was better at everything, you just don't verbalize it.

Tony has been in a relationship or two in his life, and I know as a guy he wouldn't say Carrie is a better singer. Also, unless he really loves fighting, there is no way he would say Jessica's CD is going to bomb. Why would he? Even if he thinks that, just say it will do great. She doesn't want his honest opinion about it, she wants affirmation. She has her dad and producers and everyone else in the business to give her honest opinions. So, to me the story is a bunch of crap and just a way for OK! to take some digs at what we all know will be an awful album and the fact that Carrie Underwood despite my loathing of her is a much better singer than Jessica Simpson.

And in a side note. I just found this photo above which I guess was taken last night. Is it possible that your teeth never stop growing because hers are getting larger I think. Click on the picture and make it bigger. Maybe her lip injections have reduced or something, but the teeth look huge.

NEED. BETTER. INSIGHTS.

Seriously dude, I don't mean to be a bitch about it but the tone of your articles are just like you're happy just to nag at anything and everything with specious insight.

Where's that snarky humor you once had? You just sound like you're ready to shoot someone in the face these days.

What? You screw up? HOW DARE YOU?! You should not be allowed to blog!!!

I actually think Jessica looks the least drag queenish in that photo than we've seen in years. She looks good.

I thought the exact same thing when I read an excerpt of that article on line. I thought, who would be so stupid? I didn't believe it either.

She looks so much better with no makeup. And her mouth closed. And her body covered up. And her dad nowhere around.

Twisted Sister said...

I'm surprised EL didn't say she was hiding a baby bump with her bag. He's got baby bump on the brain with all these pregnancies lately.

Trix said...

Growing teeth? Maybe she got Veneers.

I also dont think Tony Romo would have said that to her. That would go down in the history of stupidest things a guy has ever said to a woman. I can only imagine him saying that if he was really really really trying to shake her off and get rid of her.

jessica is silly enough to play the " i really want you to tell me the truth...i won't get mad, i promise" game. the shit 13 year old girls do on the phone. then they call their girlfriends and cry for hours when the boy finally tells them the truth..."well you have a better face than so and so, but,yes, she had a better body".

I guess I'm alone on this but I don't think Carrie is a better singer than Jessica. When she wants too, the girl can wail. Go listen to her first cd for how she can sound before her dad fucks everything up.
Then again I also agree that Carrie is all about Carrie and pretty much considers herself the savior of country music, so I just don't like her anyway. She can sing but she isn't the end all be all.

I agree with you sweater. I think Jessica is an amazing singer...you can tell from her first few albums. I just hate that breathy thing she always does.
Carrie is a raging bitch who needs to go away like all the other AI alums.

I just clicked on Jessica's picture and I notice crow feet on her eye for someone that is not even in her 30's. Her teeth must be her own since the ones on the right side are crooked. Her lips look like she had some stuff injected.

Jessica looks great in that pic, very natural.

I agree with blooter the tone of the articles has changed in the past few weeks, I've mentioned it a few times lately.

I'm probably way off the mark but it seems like a woman writing now. There's been a lot of bitching about stuff and people Ent and/or the writer admits to not having much knowledge - Enty always got his facts straight in the past, I smell a rat.

She has veneers, had her eyelids lifted to make them more open, a boob job once she lost the weight again this was all in her early 20's. Good times.

In honor of Hollywood, I'll always think of them as teeth implants.

Sadly, that's a record I hold and will never lose. Don't ask.

Those are from squinting at Nick Lachey all those years while saying "you want me to WHAT???!!!"

in ent's defense, perhaps he's overly busy at his real job because its tax season??
and let's face it, kids, with the pop tart on a short (er) leash and linds staying a little more out of the limelight, gossip has been a little slow.

or maybe he just needs to get laid.
