Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, June 26, 2009

“Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!” – Bill Murray, “Ghostbusters”


Let’s hope it doesn’t come to any of that today as I just don’t think I could handle it on a Friday. I can barely cope with the 12th straight day of 100 degree weather, a predicament which rules out patio drinking. But before I roll out of here around 3 p.m. and find a new plan for the evening, let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Police have charged the tour manager of the Black Eyed Peas with assault after he allegedly punched celebrity blogger Perez Hilton outside a Toronto nightclub.

Hilton said he got into an argument with band members Fergie and will.i.am at the Cobra nightclub early Monday morning and was punched outside by Polo Molina, the band's tour manager. Molina turned himself in and has been charged with assaulting Hilton.

Hilton, who is openly gay, told The Associated Press that he called will.i.am a "faggot” after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his Web site.


Despite Hilton’s sexual preference, I think he’s confused on the definition of that word and when to use it (i.e. never).

Jon and Kate Gosselin announced plans to divorce this week.

The co-stars of "Jon & Kate Plus 8,” who are parents of 5-year-old sextuplets and 8-year-old twins, spoke of their decision to separate during Monday's episode of the TLC reality series. Near the end of the hour-long episode, a title card summed read that "legal proceedings were initiated in Pennsylvania to dissolve the 10-year marriage of Jon and Kate Gosselin."

"We've been dealing a long time with this," Kate said, speaking of her marital problems and the attendant publicity.

"It's been a hard seven or eight months," Jon said in one of his separate on-camera sessions. "It's been a really hard last four months. This is the hardest episode ever."


It will be even harder for the Gosselin’s when the checks from their reality TV show stop coming in.

Actress Daryl Hannah was among 31 people arrested Tuesday as they protested mountaintop removal mining in southern West Virginia.

State Police Sgt. Michael Baylous said all were released after being cited for impeding traffic and obstructing an officer after they blocked a road near a Massey Energy Co. subsidiary's coal processing plant.


I guess this story proves that contrary to recent rumor, Daryl Hannah can still get arrested in this town.

Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault against his one-time girlfriend Rihanna this week.

Brown will not serve any jail time, but he has been assigned to six months of community service in his home state of Virginia, and he will serve five years on supervised probation with quarterly California court visits and complete a domestic violence counseling program. Finally, Brown has been ordered to stay at least 50 yards away from Rihanna at all times with the exception of music industry events they are both attending.


Personally, I plan to stay at least 50 yards away from any more mention of this story.

Former MTV reality star Nick Lachey and former "TRL" host Vanessa Minnillo have broken up after three years together, according to People.com.

"They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another," a rep for Minnillo told the magazine.


Apparently, the break-up ensued after endless arguments about which reality star had faded more quickly from public consciousness.

Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves announced they are expecting their second child this week after McConaughey posted the news on his website.

Matthew wrote: "Happy Father's Day - it's my first, and the last 11 months with Levi and Camila have been the most rewarding adventure to date - we have more blessed news to celebrate this Father's Day that make this time next year double the fun." "Levi is going to be a big brother... Yeah, we pulled off the greatest miracle in the world one more time, Camila and I are expecting our second child, bringing more life into the world, making more to live for. The future looks bright as the family grows and we thank you for all the well wishes you send our way."


McConaughey doesn’t plan to stop having children until he can fill out a complete band of naked bongo players.

“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick become parents to twin daughters this week as their babies were delivered by a surrogate mother.

The girls, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, were born in an Ohio hospital on Monday.


The biggest surprise was that both children were given reasonable names, a rarity among Hollywood parents.

As always, let’s end with a few gold images:



A little self confidence and affection towards a mirror or with another person if fine with me. So, don't be afraid to enjoy yourself or others today, have fun either way and . . . Happy Friday!

{Editor's Note: R.I.P. Michael, Ed & Farrah. Just sad.}

  2. Good work. I hadn't even heard about Daryl Hannah with all the celebrity deaths going on this week.

    Damn, that Jacko thing hit like a ton of bricks, didn't it ?

     
  3. JLee Says:
  4. Nice quote. Always like that one. ha

    Will i am is my new hero now. lol
    Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black a little bit?

    Very sad yesterday. I feel bad because after Ed McMahon died, I said there would be two more. (as they come in 3s) Damn, I shouldn't have mentioned it!

    Have a good weekend and I'm telling your boss you're leaving early! ha

     
  5. Boxer Says:
  6. our friends from Austin are here and they're VERY happy with the cool weather. I'm still getting my head around M.Jackson... can't say I'm surprised, but yeesh I don't like it when MY generation starts kicking the bucket. Even the freaky drug addicts.

    despite that big news, it was nice to read your "roundup"

    Have a great weekend. Stay cool.

     
  7. Heff - Thanks, the Hannah story barely justified mention as she's pretty far past her prime & Yes, the Jacko thing was the biggest kick in teh guts of the week. Regardless, Happy Friday.

    Jlee - I know. I was just talking with someone at work this morning about this coming in 3s . . . sad. I like that quote too & keep your mouth shut on me leaving early. Or else. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Boxer - I bet they are very, very happy to be away. I'm sure my invitation was lost in the mail. Ha. I agree 100% about Jackson as it was both suprising & not so much. Still sad. Have a great weekend.

  11. Boy this is really a week of folks who should STFU. Especially Perez Hilton and Joh & Kate.Folks here at work think I killed MJ cuz after Farrah passed I said, "OK who's next? They come in 3s." Yikes!! Such a sad week in celebrity deaths. Anyhoo, have a great weekend and Happy Friday!!

     
  12. kmwthay Says:
  13. Man - What a week it's been. I don't know why I feel so heartbroken for MJ. I didn't expect to feel so sad. Strange.

    OK -
    Perez is a lush to the max and needs his ass kicked.

    Jon and Kate sold their souls to TLC. How could they not have seen this coming? And seriously, who announces on national television that they are getting a divorce. I just feel so bad for their kids.

    Daryl Hanna is still trying to make a splash in the media spotlight.

    I never heard forsure - Did Chris and Rhianna breakup?

    I'm glad for Matthew, and Sarah and other Matthew. (and totally agree with you about their children's names.)

    Happy Weekend.

     
  14. Linda - That is most weeks in Hollywood. Ha. But yes, there was certainly a lot this week. And I think you weren't alone in thinking about the 3 thing - so don't feel guilty. :) Have a good weekend.

     
  15. Kmwthay – Flew by you in Cyberspace, but I appreciate the detail, so . . . felt the same way about Jackson – surprised and sadder than I thought, Hilton has been overdue for an ass-kicking so I don’t really feel bad for him, I do feel bad for Jon & Kate’s kids (as you noted), loved the Hannah pun (should have thought of that), I am pretty sure they are broken up, and good for Parker/Broderick (and their children). Happy Friday.

     
  16. I disagree with you on one point: Tabitha is not what I'd consider to be a "normal" name.

     
  17. Miss Ash Says:
  18. Why the Fuck was Perez tweeting (?) (if that's what it's called) for people to call the police for him....WTF?? Call yourself drama queen, call yourself. Clearly he was seeking attention and not medical help. The tapes of the incident are hilarious of him whining.

     
  19. Wendy Says:
  20. "Greatest miracle..." blarblarblar. I always wonder why celebrities think they're the only ones in the world who can make babies.

     
  21. Native Minnow - Ahhh, but in Hollywood, it is more than normal. Ha. They play by a different set of rules. Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - Yep. And I need to watch the tape as it is probably quite funny. Ha. I'm glad he got popped, nothing serious, just enough to let him know he's kind of an asshole. Happy Friday.

    Wendy - If you're not a star, they don't really count the same. Ha. At least I think that's the implication most times. Selah. Happy Friday nonetheless.

  23. Can't comment, hands too busy touching myself while looking at that second pic.

  25. More questions than answers from the Troll this week.

    Does anyone sane really give a darn that Mikey Jackson died? Outside the media, does anyone really think ANY of the songs other people wrote for him are "classics"? Does anyone really think that someone who can't read or write music nor play an instrument qualifies as a "musical genuis equal to Mozart".?

    As an adult, he had a mediocre voice and DECADES AGO was able to record songs after MULTIPLE takes under the close supervision of world-class producers. And, after multiple takes under the supervision of choreographers, he could APPEAR to be a decent dancer on VIDEO. But never in concert, where he sucked badly, forgot lyrics, sang off-key, lip-synched, and couldn't dance at all.



    Is Will. I. Am's name William? That just dawned on me.

    Is it Darryl Hannah who only showers once-a-week for enviro-nazi reasons and is that why her career has tanked? I know SOME hollyweirder made that vow!

    Are Horse-Face and Mathhew Broderick the ONLY non inter-racial couple in hollywood?

    What race IS that Gosselin guy?

    Enguiring minds!

  27. Happy Friday!! Just glad the sun is shining.

     
  28. KayDee Says:
  29. Once again there are a few people in this report I have never heard of (Perez Hilton, Jon and Kate) and once again I feel kind of lucky that I'm in the dark.

    I don't know about in America but Farrah's death only got a nano second of air time once the news of Michael Jackson broke. I know this might sound crass, but people in Hollyweird don't think like the rest of us mere mortals and I can't help thinking she would have felt upstaged.


    I hope they all go on to somewhere better than the crazy town they just left. RIP Michael, Farrah and Ed.

     
  30. Troll Y2K - I was never a huge Jackson fan, but I don't think you can argue against 750 million albums sold. Seriously. That number is just ridiculous, and will likely never be reached again. He also paved the way for music videos & was a hell of a entertainer, so he could point to a lot of resume material that places him ahead of 98% of other artists out there, so . . . Most of that was accomplished awhile ago, but it was still done & that will live on far longer than his extremely questionable personal life.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you & the sun is shining and baking me. Ha.

    Kaydee - Great to see you around here, and you don't need to know who those people are - trust me. Do you know who Isabela Lucas is? She's from Australia, and I just learned about her . . . And yes, Farrah did get the rug swept out from under her, which is really too bad, but it was kind of a bad week all the way around for that kind of thing. Hope you had a good weekend.

     
  31. KayDee Says:
  32. Yes I do know who Isabel Lucas is. She's a local soapie star and I did hear she's working over there in the States. I think most of our actors go there eventually as our industry is just too small.
