Hey Folks,

I'm calling this entry Finale-mania because with so many shows calling it a summer and couples calling it a day, we have loads to discuss:


Nicole Richie & DJ AM
First, check out this amazing mock Egon Schiele (one of my fave artists) depiction of Nicole Richie...

Nicole and her DJ whatevs split again, which means she’s sure to be diving into a giant mound of nose candy and evaporating yet some more.

McCartney & Wife Split
Dude, your kids could've saved you a quarter billion bucks if you had just pulled your head out of your ass five years ago. What a latent, expensive mid-life crisis that was! Perhaps during your last face lift, Heather arranged for some brain tissue to be snipped along with the excess skin.


American Idol
We all know Daughtry's go was a big no. But did you know that there was scandal brewing beneath the surface? Apparently, a lot of callers voting for Chris heard "Thank you for voting for Katharine" at the end of their messages. No shit. Talk about a rig. (Thanks go to Jenny for that scoop!).

Now the bitch goes and does a decent job of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and we won't be rid of her until the finale. Sadly, this meant the end for our pal Elliott Yamin, who did a fierce rendition of "What You Won't Do for Love" the other night. Here’s hoping the low-rent, Matthew Perry-gone-gray Taylor Hicks gives us justice in the end.

I don’t know if it was because the final two actually got along, both finalists were strong or the director was lousy, but the finale was atrociously anti-climactic. Danielle won. Having gotten right back on the elephant after she was hospitalized, she showed great sport and did deserve it, but I felt for Joanie who was more consistent overall. Alas, this show is formula with a capital F, and the winning pattern goes black girl, multi-culti girl, white girl, black girl, etc., so it concluded in predictable accordance.

Will & Grace
Dearly beloved, the show that finally bestowed fags and hags all across America with the love we deserve has officially departed for eternal life in syndication. The finale was a wonderful send-off with Jack, Karen, Will & Grace all finding true love and companionship in the end.

Quote of the Week:

"Do what every self-respecting woman does! Just get on your back, point your heels to Jesus and think of handbags!"
- Karen Walker, Will & Grace

Summer TV

I’m looking forward to the return of:

Rescue Me
Worcester’s finest Penis with a D is a fucking genius. Not for the faint of heart, the writing is raw, rough, hilarious and tragic, all at the same time. Check it out if you dig The Sopranos.

30 Days
If you liked Supersize Me, you’ll love Morgan Shurlock’s uncanny ability to turn willing everyday people into real life guinea pigs.

Rock Star
What can I say - I'm a sucker for a singer with a dream. And you know Tommy Lee, Jason Newstead and Gilby Clarke will say many inappropriate things to Brooke Burke.

Weekly Stupidity
This one takes the cake, y'all.

Save Our Sean

First she drives off with poor cute little Sean Preston on her lap. Then the nanny drops him on his head. Then she puts him in a car seat facing front and peels down the PCH. Now she trips over her shoes and nearly dumps him in midtown traffic. Hey, I'm a mom. We sure aren't perfect. But this is getting really ridiculous. Will someone please tell her he isn't a handbag before she acquires her second liability?

Loads of love and good weekend wishes to all of you!

re: Chris Daughtry - I'm a sucker for a bald head and facial hair; he was my fave.

"Worcester’s finest Penis with a D" LOL! I saw that!
