Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, February 13, 2009

"LAPD, shitbird. Get the fuck outta here or I'll call your wife to come get you!” – Russell Crowe, “L.A. Confidential”

I watched that movie again this week after a long hiatus, and had forgotten what a good one that project was as it broke Crowe into Hollywood, and featured an outstanding cast with Kevin Spacey, Danny Devito, Guy Pearce, James Cromwell and Kim Bassinger.

Anyway, I’d love to employ the term shitbird a few times today, however, work is not the appropriate venue for that addition to my vocabulary. So before I finish my projects and flee downtown to use it freely, let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Salma Hayek breastfed another woman's baby during a trip to Sierra Leone in front of “Nightline” cameras this week.

Hayek, 42, discovered the child, who's mother was unable to produce milk, during a tour of a hospital in the war-torn country.

"The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother did not have any milk," she told USA Today.”He was very hungry - I was weaning my daughter Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk, so I breastfed the baby."

Since reading this story, I’ve been starving myself for days and have sent multiple letters to Hayek’s reps but have yet to receive a visit.

Prior to the Grammy Awards this past Sunday, Police arrested musician Chris Brown on charges of making criminal threats in relation to his girlfriend Rihanna after an alleged fight inside a car.

The incident occurred in Brown's car, and celebrity websites and magazines have said Brown left the scene and police found Rihanna, 20, suffering from a bloody nose, split lip and bite marks in the vehicle. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, but later released.

Brown, 19, is currently free on bail, and unnamed police sources have told the Los Angeles Times that Rihanna is cooperating with police.

This is a pitiful reflection on Brown if the reports are true, and he deserves whatever punishment is doled out. I just can’t fathom what would make you that angry if you’re a teenager who is already internationally famous, a multi-millionaire and dating someone even more famous and richer and better looking than you – I’d be happy as a clam all day long.

Grey's Anatomy" stars Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight will soon be leaving the TV medical drama, Us Weekly magazine reported on Tuesday confirming long-swirling rumors concerning the actors.

Heigl plans to move onto a career in movies while Knight is hoping to audition for a string of Burger King commercials, if he’s lucky.

In other television departures, Nicollette Sheridan, who plays Realtor Edie Britt on the ABC comedy “Desperate Housewives,” is leaving the show, a spokeswoman for the network said on Wednesday.

ABC gave no further details about the timing or circumstances of the departure of Sheridan's loud-mouthed character.

If Sheridan was ‘Desperate’ before, then just wait until she’s looking for work and no longer on the show.

Singer-actress Mandy Moore and rock singer Ryan Adams are engaged.

Moore's publicist Jillian Fowkes confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the two are planning to wed. No details were announced.

Rumors have Adams taking Moore’s last name once they are married so drunken concert goers will stop screaming out requests for him to “play ‘Summer of ’69.’

Joaquin Phoenix made a bizarre and disastrous appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” this week.

Still bearded, claiming a new rap career and wearing sunglasses, Phoenix gave confused, abrupt answers and made things awkward for Letterman who refused to extend the actor an invitation to perform a rap set on a future show and concluded the interview with: "Sorry you couldn't be here tonight, Joaquin.”

I think most people were sorry that Phoenix was actually there as he seems to be killing a joke that was never funny in the first place.

Thailand's government got angry with Angelina Jolie this week after the actress spoke out and called for the country to respect the rights of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority people fleeing nearby Myanmar's military dictatorship.

"It was not her role to comment on the matter," Thai Foreign Ministry spokesman Tharit Charungvat said Thursday.

Jennifer Aniston immediately pledged her support for the government of Thailand, and called Jolie’s comments “uncool.”

But let’s not end with feuds, and instead, focus on a gold image or two like:

These images contain a plethora of my favorite things like food, wine, breasts, and heavy artillery. I guess you could strike that last one from the list.

Regardless, don’t be afraid to mix pleasures today, remember that you can’t hide anything when you’re naked and . . . Happy Friday!

  2. Despite your brain sucking meetings earlier, you pulled off a fine QHF today! It had me chuckling on this cloudy Friday morning and great photos too. You can't go wrong with heavy artillery. ha
    Have a good weekend. :)

  4. If all it takes to get my mouth on Salma Hayek's tatas is to have my mother stop feeding me then done. My mom hasn't breast fed me in almost three decades. Salma darling, I'M STARVING!!!! Baby needs his milk!

  5. Jlee - Thanks as I was running behind all week long & my brain still feels fried. You're right about the artillery, so pack some heat & have a good weekend. Ha.

    WhatIgot - It doesn't work. Trust me. And I'm very sad about it. Ha. Happy Friday.

  6. nobich Says:
  7. Joaquin Phoenix looks a little Charles Manson-ish. eeewww!
    Well Happy Friday!!

  8. Heff Says:
  9. Quick Heff Friday !!!

    Salma Hayek's got enough for BOTH of us. You mind if I take the left one ?

    I think Chris Brown has a problem being under the "Umbrella" of Rihanna's fame.

    Regarding Grey's Anatomy, I think the WHOLE show should become extinct.
    If so, Color me "McPleased". Hey - you should have gone with a "Mc"Donald's joke there instead of Burger King, eh ?

    Nicollette Sheridan leaving "Housewives", huh ? With her Hot Ass gone, they're gonna be "Desperate" for viewers !!!

    Mandy Moore should really re-think marriage to this turd. Marriage often "Fowkes up" a career.

    Joaquin Phoenix was HILARIOUS on Dave. I saw the clip. Sadly, it was DAVE that made the appearance funny. It'll be interesting to see if this Phoenix can rise from the ashes of his steaming career choice. I think the whole deal is a Farce, anyway.

    The only "role" that Angelina Jolie should stick to is nude movie appearances. That, or a "role"" in the hay with Heff !!!

    And in closing, "Heavy Artillery" indeed. LOOK AT THOSE GUNS !!!

    Ahh, it's good to be back !

    Have a Great V.D., 2Dollar !

  11. You've done a stellar job on QHF especially considering the week you've had and it's good to see Heff on fire too :)

    What I need to know is, why weren't my breasts like Salma's when I was breast feeding and I was feeding TWO? That really sucks, pun intended.

    Have a splendid weekend B.

  12. Nobich - He does look somewhat insane, and if he hasn't lost his mind, then he's certainly lost his sense of humor. Happy Friday!

    HEff - Ahhh, it's good to see you back . . . SO, I usually share things, however, NO you cannot have the left one, love the puns throughout, the McDonald's one was inspired and should have been used versus Burger King, I need to watch the actual Phoenix clip, I'm not sure she has a permit for that weapon but I don't care and have a hell of a good Valentine's weekend yourself (or w/ Donna as the case may be).

    ROmany Angel - Thank you as I was worried about finding stories, much less commenting on them. As for the breast thing, IF I can get to Hayek, then I will gladly research and report back. Ha. Have a great weekend!

  13. Linda Says:
  14. That Phoenix interview was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen. Watched it twice to try to figure out what he was doing. If it's "performance art" all he accomplished was looking like an ass. I feel bad for the film he was supposed to be promoting. Even artists are obligated to do their job.

    LA Confidential was one of the first films I ever saw by myself. The reward was so great, I never thought twice about going alone again! I still remember the dress Bassinger wore to the Oscars. I need to revisit that one.

    Happy Friday.

  15. Boxer Says:
  16. I thought the Selma news story was a joke at first, but at least she gave the kid some milk and late night comics (and you) a lot of material.

    I think J.Phoenix has gone down the road to "Crazy Town" and that's really too bad.

    Have a great weekend and thanks for making QHF a priority after a short week.

  17. CHEF TROLL Says:
  18. 1) That was a very good film.

    2) Hayek has large round boobs.

    3) Never heard of Chris Brown or Rihanna until he beat her up.

    4) Never heard of either of the love-birds who are rumored to be leaving the show I've never heard of.

    5) Never heard of Sheridan but have heard of the show she's leaving.

    6) Fuck the Rohingya and God Bless Thailand. Why don't hollyweirders ever speak out against the persecution of Christians? Rhetorical question.

    7) Grrehrahahahhahahaha on "Summer of 69".

    8) Letterman stole that line from the late (not so great) Tom Snyder. He should acknowledge that.

    9) I prolly missed a few items or got them out-of-order. Shit happens.

  19. Look at the size of Salma Hayek's jugs. I mean Good-Ness.

    I had some other stuff to comment on, but I'm "udderly" distracted.

  20. Linda - I enjoy going to the movies alone, especially when the choice is going with someone who won't enjoy it or talks or something along those lines. Ha. As for Phoenix, I no longer care what he's going for whether it be a rap career, a documentary of performance art. But you are definitely right that everyone should do their jobs. Happy Friday!

    Boxer - It sounds like a joke, doesn't it? I'm glad it wasn't. Ha. I too am starting lean that direction towards Phoenix, however, I no longer care that much either. He's a fine actor, so if he wants to do that again, then I'll catch up with him sometime. If not, good luck with the rap career. Ha. Happy Friday & have a great weekend.

    TheTroll - Order means nothing to me, however, extensive detail does, so thanks. And, I dig Hayek quite a bit, I knew of them but hadn't heard their music outside of 'Umbrella' once, Heihgl has done some films (the only one I saw was 'Knocked Up,' Sheridan is the blonde on 'Housewives,' my knowledge of Thailand is remote at best, I have a sneaky affection for that Bryan Adams song that I'm not proud of, and thanks for the Snyder tip as I had no idea. Happy Friday.

    Native Minnow - Udders - I haven't thought of that word for a long time. Thanks for that one, and I've loved Hayek for a long time & this only reinforces that notion. Happy Friday.

  22. My favorite line from the Letterman interview was "we owe Farrah Fawcett an apology." rofl

    Have a good weekend, $$.

  23. Wendy Says:
  24. I breastfed both of my kids. I know that the baby Hayek saw was (allegedly) starving, but, geez, there is something inherently... ICKY... about nursing someone else's kid. Why didn't she just donate some formula or something?

  25. Even at 42, I feel a bit hungry myself. If you actually have her address, share it so I can write to her too.

  26. slopmaster Says:
  27. Chris Brown and Rhianna where the young black version of Brad and Angelina... that's too bad.

    Seriously, those pictures you post are amazing. Can you introduce me with the girl from last week?

  28. Bostonpobble - Ha. I've got to watch the clip as I hadn't read about that line from the stories. Bizaree. Hope you had a good weekend as well.

    Wendy - Apparently, there's a big (relatively) debate about that very issue following the Hayek story as I didn't read the articles but did notice there were several . . . I think it's a little bizarre myself, however, I also would cut Hayek a lot of slack in this department. Ha.

    Getoffmylawn - Hunger knows absolutely no age limits - at least I believe that to be true. Good luck to us all, eh?

    Slopmaster - The Brown/Rhianna story is just sad and ugly as I take no pleasure in it at all. As for the pics, it's a dirty job scouring the web for ones that are sexy but not dirty as it's a fine line . . . And if I get any numbers, I'll try to pass them along, but then again, your geographical handicap at the moment probably wouldn't allow you to act on them anyway. Ha.
