Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, January 11, 2008

"You play football like Ed Generro played football. A guy who gave his life for this football team. He was a 140-pound halfback, and he played like a goddamn wildman! No! Like a goddamn rampaging beast!

And that's the way you got to do it! You got out there! You tear their fucking heads off, and you shit down their necks! Let us pray," - Robert Loggia, "Necessary Roughness"

Now that's an inspirational speech in my book. I could use a little inspiration or motivation or something to deal with the work that's piled up on my desk, a growing stack that I've neglected for the past 3 weeks as the holidays and traveling took precedence. These things happen.

But before I dig back into the pile, let's take a look at the hard-hitting stories of the week:

Dr. Phil McGraw said Britney Spears was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center hospital last week, but still needs psychological help.

"My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention," McGraw said.

McGraw had planned a show on Spears with her family, but later cancelled the program and received angry admonishments from the Spears clan.

It shows you just how far Spears has fallen when I side with Dr. Phil, a "doctor" who I generally consider to be about as qualified to give advice as mentally-deficient baboon on tranquilizers.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell interviewed Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for the British edition of GQ magazine. The issue was released this week, and Chavez told Campbell that he likes Prince Charles, thinks President Bush is crazy, and asked her to feel his muscles.

When GQ editors were asked what qualified Campbell to interview the President, they replied that "she was the only person we could find who was crazier than Chavez."

Pamela Anderson is pregnant with Paris Hilton sex tape star Rick Salomon's baby, but is still divorcing him, sources told this week.

Salomon has told friends he believes she is "acting crazy" because of the pregnancy and hopes she will settle back into the marriage.

If a sacred union between two amateur porn stars can't last these days then I fear for the entire institution of marriage.

On Monday, Nicole Kidman, 40, confirmed that she and Keith Urban, 40, are expecting their first child together.

"The couple are thrilled," her rep tells People, with his more enthusiastic mouthpiece echoing to Us, "They're thrilled!"

The duo later added that if anyone they meet isn't as "thrilled" as they are about the pregnancy that those same unenthusiastic people will be buried somewhere untraceable in the Australian Outback.

It was reported this week that Detroit rapper Eminem was admitted to the hospital over the holidays where he was treated for complications due to pneumonia.

Em's Interscope Records publicist Dennis Dennehy told The Detroit News today, "Over the holidays, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, was under doctors' care at Detroit-area hospitals for complications due to pneumonia. He has since been released and is doing well recovering at home." reported that Eminem was also treated for a heart problem as Em's weight has "ballooned" to more than 200 pounds.

I guess Eminem should consider changing his name to Peanuts M & Ms - as he's obviously consuming them by pound. That was too easy (and lazy).

Spice Girl Victoria "Posh" Beckham topped style maven Mr. Blackwell's worst-dressed celebrity list of 2007 on Tuesday.

"In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty 'Posh' can really wreck-em," Blackwell said in his annual list of fashion fiascos among music, movie and television stars.

I don't happen to agree with Mr. Blackwell because I figure if you're going to starve yourself and buy some really round orb-like tits then I wouldn't cover them up with very much fabric either.

A woman who was in the car that Lindsay Lohan chased before being arrested last year said this week in her lawsuit that the incident caused emotional trauma and cost her thousands of dollars in doctors' bills and a well-paying job.

If the woman in question saw Lohan's recent film, "I Know Who Killed Me," she could have asked for even more money - at least $7.50 in refunds.

But let's not end with ugliness and lawsuits. Instead, we'll focus on the positive:

I know lots of women who always need another "little black dress," a concept I can sometimes get behind as this one places me firmly in the acquisition camp.

So, treat yourself to something nice, make sure it hangs in all the right places and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Heff Says:
  2. Pamela Anderson acting crazy ? Say it ain't so !

  3. nobich Says:
  4. I heard Dr.Phil said she needed a real doctor not just a tv doctor which I thought was smart of him. Ya Think??? I mean the girl has been screaming for help for the past year.
    Well Happy Friday!!

  5. Heff - I fear the silicone might have finally started working on her brain. Let's hope not.

    Nobich - That's semi-intelligent, especially for Dr. Phil. And yes, Spears needs a lot of help as she does not exist on the same plane of reality as most of us. Happy Friday indeed.

  6. In high school I took a girl on a mercy date. We went to see Necessary Roughness. Thanks for bringing up memories of that awkward night.

  7. Miss Ash Says:
  8. I watched a video I believe on Youtube a while back of Hugo berating Bush, it was hilarious!!

    Totally off topic, how many Almonds/Pistachios are OK to eat as a snack LMAO, cause I know they are fatty and you are mr. fitness.

  9. I love your News round-ups. Keeps everything in perspective :)

  10. Native Minnow - I'm sorry, but it should have been worth remembering for that quote alone. I love that scene (although poor dates would certainly have an effect I suppose).

    Miss Ash - Chavez is nothing if not entertaining (and semi-delusional). As for the nuts question, a good snack is raw, unsalted almonds. Total of 10 is a decent number for a snack between meals - say breakfast a 7, almonds at 10, lunch at 1 for example.

    Havingmycake - Thanks as there's enough hard, depressing news out there, and I think it's good to take a step back - especially on a Friday.

  11. Linda Says:
  12. Anyone who listens to Dr. Phil must be nuts ..... what the hell happened to Eminem? (I know, ding dongs and booze) I used to think he was hot, that's a sad pic. Your opener reminds me that it's almost time for my annual rental of Any Given Sunday, my favorite football flick. Happy Friday!!

  13. Gypsy Says:
  14. I look forward to Quick Hit Friday as I don't get time to read the trashy mags anymore. Those ankle "bracelets" that Lindsay's wearing seem to be the latest fashion accessory among Hollywood's finest these days. If I looked like that chick in a little black dress I would make that my permanent uniform. Not fair.....

  15. Mentally deficient baboon on tranquilizers...That's quite interesting. hahaha
    Pamela Anderson - preggers? whatever!Two amateur porno stars that can't keep it together. hahaha
    M&M becoming Peanut M&M's...I love it.
    Pouty Posh and her orb-like tits on the worst dressed list. Oh no!
    I don't even want to comment on Lindsay Lohan. I do just want to say, why is she always in a freakin bikini?
    That little black dress is real little!

  16. Heff Says:
  17. Oh yes, I almost forgot - Eminem : Picture of Health, and my mentor, as always !

  18. cats Says:
  19. yeah, siding with "dr" phil makes me a little crazy too... maybe i could share a nice padded room with pamela, not that she needs much padding. oops, there i go, now i am being lazy too.

  20. Linda - That is a sad pic as he just looks bloated and bored. And maybe I should rent 'Sunday' myself as I haven't seen it since the theaters, which has been awhile. Good idea.

    Gypsy - This is your one-stop Friday stop for that kind of stuff, AND it's free. Ha. Why not? And yes, a black dress can legimitely be a permanent uniform in some cases. I believe it. Finally, those ankle bracelets must be making a lot of money for whoever manufacturers them.

    Trina - Thanks for the diligent comment as I do appreciate it. Lohan is always in a bikini because she tans all the time and has turned orange. Anderson is now denying being pregnant, so who knows? And finally, I do believe that about Dr. Phil completely.

    Heff - Ha. I doubt you'll go Ems route if he's that bloated as he seems to have neglected working out completely.

    Cats - Yep. I felt the same way as I don't think I've ever agreed with Dr. Phil before. And there's just some jokes that are too easy to resist, so I can't blame you one bit.

  21. I have bets the Britney at least tries to commit suicide on mothers day. She won't succeed at killing herself of course. What a failure.

    What's with rich, famous, old ladies pooping out babies? Jeese.

  22. There's a ton of babies that got born this past weekend alone as they all seem to be on the same cycle.

    And yes, Spears couldn't successfully cross the street these days. Pitiful.
