Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, April 13, 2007

"One thought he was invincible, the other thought he could fly.
They were both wrong," - Steven Seagal, "Marked For Death"

It was snowing and cold last weekend, but now the sun is out and it's 80 degrees and there seems to be no good reason for me to be in an office today, yet I find myself sitting here pondering stories like:

Anna Nicole Smith's former boyfriend Larry Birkhead is the father of Smith's baby, DNA tests have revealed Tuesday and Birkhead proclaimed 'I told you so' after emerging from the courthouse.

If you had money on Howard K. Stern being the father then you are a complete buffoon.

Singer, dancer and one-time Playboy magazine model Willa Ford will star as the late Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith in a biographical film about the billionaire's widow that starts shooting next week. Ford, best known for her hit single "I Wanna Be Bad" and a stint on the ABC television show "Dancing with the Stars," confirmed her title role in the film, "Anna Nicole."

I think Ford is a great choice given her history of "wanting to be bad" because this project is going to be even worse.

Embattled broadcaster Don Imus' professional fate depends on the CBS Corporation, now that MSNBC has stopped simulcasting his morning program following the controversy stemming from Imus' reference to the Rutgers female basketball players as "nappy-headed hos" last week.

Imus' comments were ridiculous on multiple levels, but staying strictly on the surface for a minute, how can Imus criticize anyone else's hair?

Kevin Costner is sung a music promoter, alleging the company breached a contract to back his fledgling music career as he has tagged Mahee Worldwide Ventures with an $8.5 million lawsuit alleging fraud and a breach of contract.

My feeling is that Mahee Ventures quickly realized that The Kevin Costner Band was a musical albatross around their necks and refused to fund the group because anyone foolish enough to buy a CD of their material would likely sue the company for extreme auditory discomfort and for far more money than a paltry $8.5 million.

Joe Francis, the multimillionaire founder of the "Girls Gone Wild" video series, was indicted on tax evasion charges on Wednesday -- a day after being arrested and jailed in Florida for contempt of court. The sultan of soft-core smut faces up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

If Francis does go to jail, it seems like karma that instead of him yelling for underage girls to "take off your top" and "show us your tits" that some hairy, giant monster cell-mate will be telling him to "drop his pants" and smile. Ouch.

Laguna Beach and The Hills alum Jason Wahler was arrested for the fourth time in the past nine months in Seattle this week, and charged with criminal trespassing and assault after allegedly launching into a racist and homophobic tirade against a police officer.

I generally hesitate before writing people off before they are legally allowed to drink, but Wahler is just a flat-out worthless piece of shit. I hate to be ambiguous, but . . .

Let's now dwell on the bad, and so we'll end with a gold standard image:

Regardles of whether you're driving a crotch rocket or a Taurus or taking the bus to work today, have a good one and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. If you're betting on who's the father of Anna Nicole's baby, you're a complete buffoon.

  2. A fair point, but there's money to be made there if you could find anyone willing to be the other way.

  4. Happy Friday!!

  5. SymplyAmused Says:
  6. Be sure and duck when the storms come through! Happy Friday!

  7. Miss Ash Says:
  8. Maybe someone can explain to me the fascination with Anna Nicole...truly, I don't get it, I really don't. I remember her from the guess ad's, marrying the old guy and acting in a bizzare manner on an awards show. That's about it. I certianly do not watch Inside Edition and such shows, but while flipping i've come across them and that is all you see. Her funeral was on for days and days. I don't get it.

  9. Nobich - Happy Friday back at you.

    Symplyamused - I'm hoping the worst of the storms stay north of Austin. We'll see, and happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - I'm over it, and she was quite striking in Guess and Playboy, but since then, well you aptly described her behavior following that point in time. But I don't think the stories are going away anytime soon.

  11. should I do cockblog Wed?

  12. BostonPobble Says:
  13. You know, I think this has been a deeply disburbing week on many, many levels. ROFL

  14. I also do not understand the big deal about Anna. But since everyone else was making such a big deal I thought I was missing something. ((shrug))

    Anyway I always thought Birkhead was her baby daddy.

    Don Imus looks like a HOT MESS!!

  15. tkkerouac - I can't say it will do much for me, but . . .

    Bostonpobble - You're right, it's been a brutal week on any number of levels and planes of existence and luckily, at least some of them are humorous.

    Trina - Anna's getting more press now than the last 5 years of her life put together, and Imus is in a hot mess for sure. I'm sick of hearing about it.

  17. Well, anyone who is blond (even from a bottle) and has boobs (even plastic ones) is worth to be talked about. ANS just proves this point. And her boobs are non-recyclable!

  18. Talked about at the very least & I prefer pictures if truth be told. Ha.
