Snarky Celebrity Roundup...

I think this was sort of a David Spade skit on SNL back in the 90's, but I'd like to bring it back. I admit, my guilty pleasure is reading the Star magazine and going on and watching Entertainment Tonight or E! Celebrities fascinate me; not because they are beautiful or talented - because apparently you no longer have to be talented to BE a celebrity - but because I am a people watcher and it's interesting to see how the other half life and why.

Okay, so first up is my issue with celebrity couples who you NEVER see together. For example, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. I mean, I cannot remember the last time I saw these two in a picture together. You see Jen all over the place with one of their two daughters but Ben? MIA. Then there's Gwenyth Paltrow and Chris Martin of Coldplay. Honestly, I don't think I have EVER seen a picture of these two together. I see them at different events, alone, but never at the same one together. Why is that?

And the whole David Letterman thing? Let me just say that I think that this has just gotten WAY out of control. I mean, I don't approve of sex in the workplace or cheating on your spouse but it does happen. Like this woman (his assistant) is the first woman EVER to sleep with her boss? I think it's disgusting, personally but the media is focused on the wrong thing here - isn't extorting two million dollars from someone a bad thing anymore?

And the Kardashian's? What exactly are they famous for? Um, their dad was on OJ's murder defense "dream" team and Kim was a celebrity "shopper". Last I checked, that's nothing to even earn a small round of applause for! These three sister's have no talent yet they have their own reality show and you know what? They're not even believable doing that!! One's pregnant by and ex-boyfriend who was a notorious cheat, one married an NBA star after only knowing him a month so that the network would pay for the wedding and the other is famous for a sex tape. If their dad was still alive...well, it's my opinion that right now he's probably turning in his grave. Shame on you, girls!

Oh, and here's a reality show pet peeve of mine (okay, one of many): On Dancing with the Stars, am I the only one that has had enough of these dancers hooking up with the stars? It started after season one when Cheryl Burke was accused of having an affair with MARRIED man Drew Lachey. But the one that takes the cake at this point is that Karina something-or-other! First it was Mario Lopez then it was one of the other dancers now it is a really YOUNG Aaron Carter. Give me a break, please. And to distract the public, now it's like "Oh, Karina was just diagnosed with adult ADHD". REALLY?? Now I care even less.

And Jon & Kate? Please, please, PLEASE just go away. How does being fertile make you famous and why should I have to see you all over the place. Enough. Be gone.

Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!

Well said Stace! You're last comment cracked me up - "Enough. Be gone."

Another one that gets me is "Dog the Bounty Hunter." I enjoy the show, but he doesn't deserve all of the attention that he gets. He doesn't do anything! Tim, Leland and Dwayne Lee (and sometimes Baby-Leesa) do all the dirty work. Dog just runs in as they're rounding everyone up and starts cursing and making a show of things. I think they ought to change it to "Dog's Pups - The Bounty Hunters!"

Jennifer Garner is one of my favorite celebs. I love all the pictures of her with her girls, being a hands on mom, something a lot of celebrities aren't. I would love to see pics of her with Ben, but I understand why there are so many of her alone.

Everyone else...I agree 100%. Especially the Jon and Kate thing. I am tired of reading about the squabbles over money and the show. I wish they would go away, too. They are both horrible.

You said it girl! Couldn't agree more! I happend on your site through Entrecard hopping and was completely laughing by the end of your post. I too consider myself a people watcher...I like the magazines, I like to tune in to E! every now an again (which I really don't have time for with 4!) but still, you nailed it with your witty and forthright commentary. Thanks for the giggle!

I have been wondering the same thing about the Kardashians. Why should we care about them! LOL

Okay A. they weren't fertile, they used drugs TWICE! She is a ~~~~that made him crazy but he knew it before he married her so his actions now are not excused, plus, she is just better at being an idiot, B. I have proof Dog is a JERK, and C (not related to your post) I never saw your music tastes before! what happened to the "good" music? Where did the (pre-rock-of-love)poison go? Where are all of our hair bands?

And after proofreading, maybe I shouldn't post after our 3 day weekend drinks anymore!
