Snootches said...

@jennifer, I think Amy P. was the popular guess (or answer) for the blind about the chick who got implants after hsr divorce.

Allison Williams is so thin, she's making Zooey look chunky

Jennifer said...

Thanks Snootches! It was throwing me off.

derek harvey said...

Snootches said...

Cool your jets, it was just jokes...didn't mean to rattle da cage my love...not sure how but I guess it's the old 'internet has no tone' jive again....have a blessed day Derek! Apologies if I offended t'was not my intent/context xox

califblondy said...

I felt that way about Breaking Bad, but I was hooked with the first episode I saw. I came in for the last two seasons only and I still need to catch up one day. The acting, story lines, and the shocking twists were unlike anything I've ever seen.

House of Cards is my new BB.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I'm the only person alive who thought Breaking Bad was boring. Every time I attempted that series I fell asleep.

FS said...

Miss Kitty, and others...
To be clear, TTM started a blog for her book club a few months ago (April or even earlier). That came first. It was only after a few 'things' happened (whatever they were, I didn't see any of them), that she decided to stop posting at CDAN.

They are just blogs on the internet, it's not a competition. No need for drama.

Back to the show.

Tricia S said...

@*Jason..nope not akonet
Watching paint dry entertained me more

hatton713 said...

JULIA ROBERTS LOST.... YEAH!!!!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Jesus, Woody Harrelson hasn't aged a day since Natural Born Killers opened exactly 20 years ago.

califblondy said...

New rule, if you win the Emmy and you don't show up for the show, the audience gets to pick the winner from the nominees who are there.

Doctor's note or death are the only exceptions.

FS said...

Oh too much surgery Jessica Lange.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Remember back in January when Lindsay said she was trying to get Jessica Lange to co-star in her fake movie? Boy, that was funny.

sugarbread maker said...

I lurved Emma Roberts in ahs. Can't wait for next season. Glad jld won. And Kathy bates.

Tricia S said...

@ Hatton I too am happy..seems odds..but she is just not that goodand she served...Kathy Bates:)

Tricia S said...

@ Jason..I forgot that LL nugget
Neither ofwoody or Matthew M age
Maybe I should start toking..

Note to self..toke,yoga..repeat

Jessi said...

Jessica Lange is shmammered. Sweet Jesus.

FS said...

New thread has been opened.

califblondy said...

IDK Jessi, she always acts like that. So maybe she's always shmammered?

Desert.Fox said...

Who let Seth Meyers host? Ugh the worst.

hatton713 said...

@Tricia, right, she's a talentless mean bitch. Everyone in h'wood knows it too...

Jessi said...

I do think she is a big drunk and I still think she's the one that got fired from American Horror for always being shmammered. :) they are just letting her get away with saying she is "stepping down".

Rose Lizenberg said...

I know I'm about an hour late one this, but did anyone else notice Julia Roberts looked none too pleased with Ryan Murphy's erin brockovich joke?

Rose Lizenberg said...

*on

Tricia S said...

Yep..still...working one...she must have dirt on peeps...cuz no one would work with her otherwise....

Jessi said...

Rose she is insufferable!!!!
