Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, October 17, 2008

"The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self awareness," - Susan Sarandon, "Bull Durham"

Great quote. Even better movie. I've heard they are talking about making a sequel, which sounds like a truly horrible idea, but then again, nobody asked me. Selah.

Oh well, it's Friday and the weather is damn near perfect in Austin. Sunny and dry with a high in the mid-80s before dropping into the 60s at night. I plan to take full advantage both outdoors and indoors this weekend, but before that happens let's look at the hard stories of the week such as:

British newspapers reported Wednesday that Madonna and filmmaker Guy Ritchie are set to end their marriage after nearly eight years.

Citing unnamed sources, The Sun and Daily Mail said the couple hoped to have a divorce finalized by Christmas. The Sun said that Madonna, 50, had wanted to wait until her latest world tour wraps up in Brazil in December before announcing the split.

I'm betting Madonna returns from Brazil with a heavy heart and a buff Brazilian in a Speedo to help ease the pain of divorce.

Rocker John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston proved they could still be friends after they were recently spotted enjoying a meal at Il Mulino in New York together.

A source tells, "They looked like they were having a fantastic time."

The pair broke up in August after several months of dating.

I guess they're now 'Friends' with benefits, eh?

Maureen McCormick - Marcia from the TV show "The Brady Bunch" - has a new memoir coming out entitled "Here's the Story: Surviving Marcia Brady and Finding My True Voice."

The actress writes of her romance with TV sibling Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady, dates with Michael Jackson and Steve Martin, and her many addictions which ultimately led her to trade sex for drugs.

McCormick wrote concerning her first kiss with Williams that: " . . . we continued to kiss and press against each other so closely that we could feel each other's body heat, a part of me — a tiny part, admittedly — said to myself, `Oh my God! I'm kissing my brother. What am I doing?'"

On Martin: "I remember him being a very good kisser," McCormick writes about Martin. "But I was insecure and either high or spaced out (most likely both), and I didn't laugh at his jokes."

Meanwhile the actress who played Jan on the TV series was quoted as saying "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia is such a druggy slut."

Ringo Starr said this week that he will begin placing all fan mail into the trash because after 45 years of stardom, he doesn't want to spend any more time answering mail or sending signed photos back to fans.

The fan fatigue led the former Beatles drummer to post a sometimes angry sounding short video clip on his Web site telling fans that any mail sent to him after Oct. 20 will not be read or answered.

"It's going to be tossed," he says on the video. "I'm warning you with peace and love, I have too much to do. So no more fan mail. Thank you, thank you. And no objects to be signed. Nothing. Anyway, peace and love, peace and love."

Simply put, Starr would rather spread peace and make love than sign any more pieces of memorabilia, so piss off everyone. You have to admire his honesty I suppose, but then again, I honestly wonder who is still sending him so much fan mail?

Britney Spears is gearing up for a tour next spring, her first outing since 2004, sources said. The arena trek will help promote her new album, "Circus," due December 2 via Jive Records.

If Spears incorporates a real circus into her act then I might buy a ticket as I'm a sucker for watching the guy who gets shot out of the cannon.

David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni revealed Wednesday in a statement to People magazine that they've been separated for a while after 11 years of marriage.

The statement from their reps reads: "In light of continuous speculation over the lives and marriage of Tea Leoni and David Duchovny, the couple has confirmed that they have in fact been separated for several months. The couple had hoped to keep this separation private for the sake of their [two] children."

Divorce is never fun, however, I imagine it will also be a huge setback for Duchovny's recovery from sex addiction as most guys attempt to sleep with anything that moves following one.

After the positive response last week, I figured that doubling up on a final gold image(s) can hurt so:

I always enjoy studying a complete picture of things before truly understanding them. So, remember to look things over front to back today, leave no stone unturned and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Gypsy Says:
  2. Don't you have to be separated for 12 months before you can be granted a divorce or don't the rules apply to celebs? How can Guy and Madge possibly be divorced by Christmas when it's only October now. Marriage is so expendable isn't it?

    McCormick wrote concerning her first kiss with Williams that: " . . . we continued to kiss and press against each other so closely that we could feel each other's body heat, a part of me — a tiny part, admittedly — said to myself, `Oh my God! I'm kissing my brother. What am I doing?'"

    What is she doing? Barry Williams was banging his mother, Mrs Brady at the time so I don't think you have much to worry about Maureen.

    I think Ringo needs to seriously get over himself and Brit's whole life is a circus so that's an excellent title for her new record. I'm feeling a little bit maternal towards Brit at the moment and hope she manages to get her shit together this time.

    .....and speaking of feeling maternal....I hate to diss your golden images at the end, but give those gals a sandwich for God's sake before they keel over.

  3. JLee Says:
  4. I too am speechless after seeing the bony ass at the end! lol
    Happy Friday ;)

  5. Miss Ash Says:
  6. Ewe Marcia and her brother...that's just creepy!!!

    As for Madge and Guy awwwww I kinda liked them :(

    And least she can finally get some rest haha!

  7. The Troll Says:
  8. Meanwhile the actress who played Jan on the TV series was quoted as saying "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia is such a druggy slut."

    I'm guessing the above is an "inside joke" for those ghey enough to have actually watched The Brady Bunch?

  9. Gypsy - Never. That 12 month rule certainly doesn't apply to celebs. Ha. I forgot about Barry
    And Mrs. Brady, so thanks for that reminder. I think Spears might actually have it back together - at least for the time being as her first single from the album went straight to #1 on the charts. Finally, nobody can bend over like that & hold a sandwich at the same time. Happy Friday.

    Jlee - It's not that bony. Ha. Maybe I didn't look at it closely enough & I will remedy that shortly. Have a good weekend.

    Miss Ash - That's funny about Tea, although I figure Duchovny's problem with other women too. And I thought Guy & Madonna worked relatively well for a celeb couple too. Oh well, they made it longer than most.

    TheTroll - You don't have to watch the "Brady Bunch" to know pop culture & that whole 'Marcia, Marcia, Marcia' thing is still referenced if the situation fits. I imagine you could look it up on the Internet, although that would be a huge waste of time.

  10. Nice pix this week. No faces.

  11. WhatIgot - Flew past you in Cyberspace, and yes, no faces adds to the mystery I suppose.

  12. Heff Says:
  13. Is it sad that I recognize the car in the last photo as a slightly modded-out convertible '65 Mustang ?!?

  14. A.B. Says:
  15. It was a rough week for celeb marriages this week. Weirdly, because I rarely truly care, all of these left me a little verklempf.

    Maureen McCormick looks pretty good considering the drugee life she lived for awhile, but I'm just bored with these "tell all" books coming out from celeb-tards right. I'm sure Wendy D. will also have something to say.

    Your last shots are always my inspiration to make sure I stay in the gym this weekend...

    Have a great one.

  16. Wendy Says:
  17. Why would Ringo have to announce that? Don't most celebs trash their fan letters? Or, at least, have someone else answering them? Besides, he's a freakin' BEATLE. He shouldn't have to explain himself.

  18. No, faces is where the mouth is found. The mouth is where all the talking comes from.

  19. nobich Says:
  20. Happy Friday!!!!!

  21. Heff - Not sad at all - unless you failed to notice other items in the picture too. But I tend to doubt it.

    A.B. - I thought the same thing about McCormick. She looks well preserved for living that way for so long. And yes, I could generally care less about Tell-All books (but I did just buy Steve Martin's 'Born Standing Up' and it is excellent). I'll be hitting the gym this weekend too, and I hope you get some updated Ipod tunes for your trip. Happy Friday.

    Wendy - I know. I wondered that too as most people have people who sort through their mail, and even if you aren't going to sign it, do you need to announce it like that? Bizarre.

    WhatIgot - Personally, I enjoy a bit of talking now & again, especially if they're very descriptive. But we all have our preferences, eh?

  22. Nobich - Missed you in Cyberspace . . . Happy Friday back at you!

  23. wigsf Says:
  24. I'm surprised you didn't mention this, maybe you didn't hear. Apparently George Hamilton slept with this stepmother when he was 12 years old.

  25. Linda Says:
  26. Wow, this could be the largest collection of celebs I could care less about. I do think Guy Ritchie is adorable, but not too bright. Dude, you married Madonna and you thought you'd have a "normal" life?!? Silly boy. Kinda surprised that one lasted 8 years. And Ringo Starr needs a huge dose of get-over-yourself....peace and love. Happy Friday!

  27. vivavavoom Says:
  28. it's a slow week....everyone is getting separated....thus the butt cheeks I assume. hope the weekend is a good one. only necessary separations.

  29. You hit the nail on the head about Madonna returning from Brazil with a buff Brazilian right after the divorce.

    Jennifer Aniston seems to be all over the place since her divorce. I'm kinda getting tired or hearing about her latest love interest.

    I was thinking the exact same thing about Ringo Star....who the hell is still sending him all this dam fan mail?! Hahahaha

    And if I said it once I've said it a million times....Britney Spears is an absolute train wreck!

  30. Oh I forgot one more thing...the last two images were classic!

  31. WhatIgot - Thanks for the knowledge as I missed that one entirely. That being said, I can't say I'm that surprised. Ha.

    Linda - Happy Friday belatedly, and I agree about Richie as far as what he thought he was signing up for in marrying Madonna. Normal? Please. Ha. I do want to see 'RocknRolla' though as I've heard good things about it. At least there will be no 'Swept Away' sequel, eh?

    Vivavavoom - Agreed. And I'm glad you picked up on the symmetry (sp?) with the butt checks separating. Ha. Most weeks at least one couple breaks up in Hollwyood, but sometimes they come in waves.

    TrinabeingTrina - I can't even imagine what Madonna's tour bus looks like now - ha -, agree about Anniston as she doesn't seem to know what she wants, thanks on the last two images as I was digging for them, and finally, Spears may be getting her act together. Her new single is apparently #1 on the charts already, although I haven't heard it because I don't really listen to the radio.
