Dish Upon a Star

…but reaction to her has already annoyed me. I know, catastrophes make you reach out to others. Though with 9/11, Facebook hadn’t been an issue. You were out of touch, but you called and emailed people. Now it’s the FB status updates that are setting off my stereotypical red-headed temper: “Light rain so far…” “Oh…it’s looking gloomy.” “OMG, so bored.” So am I. Maybe it’s that everyone has become a broadcaster (including me), maybe it’s because even the broadcasters are melodramatic. Maybe it’s because I’m in Canada and can’t experience the anxiety firsthand. People are vulnerable so one should be compassionate. Right now I’m Irened out and she hasn’t really hit NYC. Though…I will admit FB did prove useful with getting married and knowing that I lived through an earthquake that I didn’t feel. Never mind my bad mood.

So enough kvetching, Dish, what’s new in celebrity land? There’s some news that Ricky Gervais might host the Golden Globes again. I say, Halleluliah! He’s one of the few hosts who isn’t politically correct and kissing an audience’s ass. I hope, hope, hope Jane Lynch is the same for the Emmys. But, yes, please bring on Ricky to make stars remember how privileged they are to wear beautiful clothes and be in movies/television and make…um…art.

I had the fortune of seeing the trailer for Fireflies in the Garden where Julia plays a MOTHER to Ryan Reynolds. I can’t tell if it’s good, but we do know it’s another Serious Julia Movie, where in the crux of the turmoil, she will cry beautifully and at some point, flash her brilliant smile:


Congratulations to Dishbrother who married his love Dishbrotherpartner! It was very moving. How else to recover from a great wedding than to watch the catty Part 2 of Real Housewives of New York City? Even TG had a hard time breaking away. Speaking of housewives, Desperate Housewives‘s last season is ending a year shorter than planned. Maybe because it’s been blowing lately? Maybe the fast-forward five years wasn’t brilliant, though it did give Gale Harold more work.

Why I love Kathy Griffin: My favorite incorrigible whore.

I’m reading things about The Normal Heart, to be directed by Ryan Murphy and possibly starring Julia and Mark Ruffalo. Cut to Dish running toward Julia yelling, “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” The play has had a huge resurgence but I just don’t see it as a movie and after Eat Pray Love, well, I can’t say it because Julia is Love itself. What about Notting Hill 2 instead?

A tidbit that seems like bs: Ryan Reynolds ended things with Charlize Theron b/c she was getting too serious. Women are such wily creatures. All we do is get too serious. One look at a man and we *have* to nail him down. After 10 years with a steady beau (whom she never married), I can’t really see this as true.

So, Janet Jackson was vindicated when Nicki Minaj slipped her nip GMA. And it was a huge slip with a bulging boob popping out of her spandex. WHY DIDN’T SHE WEAR A BRA??? When you have large gozongas, you keep them from popping out.

Allegedly, Daniel Craig’s ex charged a million $ on his credit card when he dismissed her for Rachel Weisz and wouldn’t return her phone calls. That’s hard core but I get it.

Netflix prices are going up significantly. Those f*ckers. Hitting Dish where she lives. They know they’ve got a good product. I love hate them!

Today was a day for grim news. Say a prayer for the family of Leibby Kletzky, a nine-year-old Brooklyn boy who went missing yesterday and whose body was found today, victim of a grizzly murder. This is one of the few times when I wish New York had the death penalty.

RIP to Sherwood Schwartz–genius creator of The Brady Bunch.

We need a little cheering up, don’t we? Ted Danson has been cast to take over the lead in CSI. I’m a huge Marg Helgenberger fan but I need more than one awesome star to get me to watch a show. This might do it. I heart Ted, especially since he’s been playing these creepy roles (Damages).

Rodney King was busted again. He is still one handsome son of a gun. Even though he’s a screwup, he will always have one good sentence (Can’t we all just get along?). Isn’t that what Hemingway tried to achieve?

Rumor has it Ryan Reynolds and Charlize Theron are dating exclusively. Huh? I can see it sort of. Her star power has faded in the last few years so it’s a strategic choice on her part. Though, Green Lantern. Hmmmm.

Oh, Michele Bachmann has blown any chance she might have had to be President. You just don’t go against the gays. They are too powerful and awesome.
