Quick Hits Part Two


At Least The Can Do A Divorce Show Next - CBS ordered a new series which is basically going to be four blind date marriages. Yes, real marriages. Four single people who have no luck finding a mate have their friends and family find them a wife. The couple gets married and the show follows them through their marriage. Yeah, this won't cheapen the whole marriage thing will it? Seriously? I mean I am not saying I won't watch the show but what kinds of odds do you give the marriages for success? I think it is a great idea to get people to watch television but a bad idea in every other sense of the word.

Baby News - You know when I only have to write a sentence or two about baby news it isn't that bad. It is when I try and come up with several paragraphs about celebrities having kids that I start to not care. I don't know how that celebrity baby blog does it. I would go insane. Anyway, the very lovely. Did I say she was lovely, Sarah Shahi of The L Word and Life is pregnant. According to E! this is going to cause lots of changes on Life. Yeah, it will also cause big changes in Sarah's life too I would imagine, but sure, lets focus on the show. Bobby Brown is having another kid. I thought I just did a Bobby Brown having a baby story a few months ago. Anyway, this is his 5th. I think it is probably fair to say he may have more than that. Hell, I thought he had more than that he had publicly acknowledged.

Love it!!!! - One of the Jonas Brothers is rumored to be getting laid off. According to Advertising Age magazine, Disney has decided that since the Jonas Brothers are not great singers anyway that why not save costs and reduce the number who sing down to 2 from the current 3. Since they can't sing anyway, Disney is thinking of getting rid of the non-cute one. I don't even know their names, but apparently Disney thinks Kevin is the one who should be removed from the group. Practice these words Kevin. "Do you want fries with that?"

The arranged marriage show sounds pretty stupid.

Let's hope Bobby stays far, far away from octuplet mom.

I love our society.

And I think Kevin is the gay Jonas brother.

not on my dollar said...

Disney isn't really splitting up that talentless group the Jonas Brothers? This is joke right?

KellyLynn said...

Maybe Kevin Jonas and Zac Efron could both come out of the closet, hook up, and then market the resulting "reality" show to MTV. It could happen...

Ror said...

I should have tried out for that arranged marriage show.

Couldn't be any worse then when I tried to do it on my own.

EPIC failure. Thank GOD!

Lisa said...

I'm almost gonna swear that there's already been a show (pre-reality) that did that exact same thing! I watched the first episode and thought "who the hell would sign up to have their families arrange a real marriage to a stranger?!"

selenakyle said...

Ha Haaaaa, amster!

Bobby and the octuplet mom....now THAT would be something I might not boycott, just for pure entertainment.

And is that photo this Shahi person from The L Word? Damn, I would maybe leave hot hubby for that chick. I mean, she is one seriously hot chick. Sheesh!

I gotta start watching more mainstream TV and leave off Andrew Zimmern and his gourmet penises and testicles for a while...

Mooshki said...

Lisa, yep, there was. They got married at the Mall of America. A sure sign it would be a huge success.

Mooshki said...

"Married by America" - that was it. Cheapened marriage almost as much as Britney Spears did.

lutefisk said...

Think of how much will be saved on hair gel by cutting the Jonas Brothers by a third.
What happened to the bonus Jonas?

brendalove@gmail.com said...

This is why God invented the pre-nup.

maggiemei said...

Love Sarah Shahi. She was uber hot in the L Word.

Mooshki said...

Also, it's a very funny joke, but you know Disney would clone thousands of Jonai in a heartbeat if they could.

lol @ the thought of disney downsizing the jonas bros.

bobby brown having a child...omg poor child. :( seriously.

jax said...

Brendalove!!!! where you been hiding lady!?

ok so gay people can't marry and 'tarnish' up marriage but these useless fools can and thats ok?
wow.
wait till the Mormons get a load of this.

GladysKravitz said...

Jax, you stole the words right out of my keyboard.

One of the biggest arguments for Prop 8 in this state was that we need to preserve the "sanctity of marriage." Those people who bash gay marriage better get a protest and a backlash going against this show---talk about taking away the sanctity of marriage.

Britney can get married for 55 hours, these people can marry complete strangers for money and "fame," but I can't marry my partner.

Yeah, that makes sense.

Ror said...

HA!

Yeah....she has been known to do that to others as well.

And I have the PROOF!!!

Lil' thief!

Ms.Leigh said...

gladys, i completely sympathize. there is a quote that came about during the election- i don't remember it exactly, but it was basically "how can we say 'home of the free' and then say 'no, you can't marry who you want'"


if it's ok for 2 consenting adults to marry a complete stranger, based on their family and friends decisions, shouldn't it be ok for 2 consenting adults (g/l/t or straight) to marry based on their OWN decision?



sorry if i sound like a troll, i'm really not- i forgot my password and couldn't post for a while.

Mooshki said...

Ms. Leigh, you don't sound like a troll at all, just a smart gal! :)

The ugly Jonas Brother is I think also the oldest Jonas brother so that is 2 counts against him. They have a younger brother that Disney wants to bring in hoping he will suck in more of the tweener $$$ demographic. Sure worked with Britney and JamieLynn for Nickelodeon!
