Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, November 06, 2009

“You could say I’m a man of the cloth – without the cloth,” Matthew McConaughey, “Contact”

McConaughey portrayed some kind of Playboy spiritual adviser in ‘Contact,’ a man who could both sleep with Jodie Foster the day he meets her, and also somehow manage to parlay his spiritual bent into a high-ranking advisor post to the President of the United States. Bizarre.

Anyway, my own spiritual path seems murky at best today since the weather is a cool and a sunny 70 degrees and so a downtown patio with a view is calling my name. But before I can slide out the office door, let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Prosecutors brought felony charges Monday against an Army reservist who allegedly stalked Ryan Seacrest and was arrested Friday after showing up at the E! Entertainment headquarters brandishing a knife.

"His aggressive and violent efforts to come into physical contact with me are extremely frightening to me," Seacrest wrote in a declaration for the restraining order Friday. "They have jeopardized not only my personal safety, but also the safety and well-being of those around me."

Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr., 25, faces up to four years in prison related to the charges, and he has entered a plea of Not Guilty.

While Uzomah’s guilt or innocence has yet to be decided, he’s already been convicted of having extremely poor taste in choosing celebrity victims to stalk.

A three-minute audiotape of a distraught Lindsay Lohan claiming "no one cares about me" was released by RadarOnline this week.

The recording was allegedly obtained through Lindsay’s dad, Michael Lohan, and is supposedly several years old, according to Lindsay herself, who Tweeted on Wednesday that: "My father's such a loser . . . To release personal things is foul enough, but to edit them(?) I used to think that he needed the book for dummies on learning how to be a father. Ha ha - he needs the book for dummies on HOW TO BE A MAN."

This whole Lohan clan saga has almost stopped being funny – Ha ha – but not quite yet.

Josh Duhamel and his wife Fergie denied another round of allegations from an Atlanta stripper this week who claims that she had a one-night stand with the actor.

“This is not the first nor will it be the last time that a stripper was paid a large amount of money to sell a false story about a celebrity,” says Duhamel’s rep. “This story is absolutely ridiculous.” A rep for Fergie added: “These allegations are nonsense.”

Nicole Forrester says she had sex with Duhamel in an Atlanta hotel a week after he came into the Tattletale club, where she works as a dancer. Forrester says she has text messages and a polygraph test to back her up. “We did hook up and had lots of sex and we had a really, really good time,” Forrester told Atlanta radio station Q100’s “Bert Show” on Monday.

Duhamel remains surprised that a stripper who works at a club called the Tattletale could have such a big mouth.

Jessica Simpson ripped the new “Melrose Place” TV show this week after her sister – Ashlee Simpson – was fired from the production, allegedly due to her suspect acting abilities.

Big Sis Jessica Tweeted: "CW catching up on MP.who writes this crap?i have had bad scripts to work with,but this?thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press...Watch til Jan.. :)"

To add credibility to her accusations of knowing bad writing, Jessica Simpson screened copies of 'The Dukes of Hazard,’ ‘Major Movie Star’ and ‘Private Valentine’ as evidence.

Mel Gibson became a father for the eighth time this week when his girlfriend, musician Oksana Grigorieva, gave birth to a baby girl, PEOPLE confirms.

"Everything is great! They couldn't be happier," a friend tells PEOPLE. "Everyone's healthy and thrilled. He loooves it!"

Following the birth, Jon Gosselin sent Gibson a nasty letter for stealing his 8-baby celebrity thunder, claiming “it was the one thing I had going for me.”

Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were announced this week as co-hosts for the 82nd Academy Awards.

"I am happy to co-host the Oscars with my enemy Alec Baldwin," said Martin.

"I don't play the banjo but I'm thrilled to be hosting the Oscars -- it's the opportunity of a lifetime," said Baldwin.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Baldwin brothers – William, Stephen and Daniel – are competing with each other for the role of Alec’s body double for the broadcast.

Brad Pitt made news in Tokyo this week by announcing that he is in the market for a new motorcycle after the actor wrecked his favorite bike recently in L.A. traffic.

Pitt was involved in a minor accident in Los Angeles last month after a paparazzo reportedly cut him off in traffic. He said that while he is in Tokyo he will be looking for a replacement.

"I will definitely be looking at motorcycles," he said. "You've got some of the best builders right here."

This is not news in any way, shape or form, but it was reported in numerous places this week anyway.

Kirstie Alley announced via Twitter this week that she will star in a untitled reality show on the A&E network next year that will follow Alley's life as a single mom at home with her teenage children as she launches a new weight-loss program.

She Tweeted Tuesday that show will be a "very funny docu about me losing weight, raising unpretentious kids, and biz." She later added: "I hope it's not like any real show you've ever seen.. That's my goal.. I hate reality shows, so this outta be a REAL challenge," Alley said.

The REAL challenge will be when Alley passes by a Cinnabun store while clothes shopping with her kids – now that might create some REAL drama.

As always, let’s end with a gold image or two:

It's hard to go too wrong with Dita and you can never go wrong with stockings, so pull your own garters up high, don't be afraid to express your dominance over others and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. There you go again, making me feel like an awesome father by posting news about the Lohan clan. Thank you!

    What is it with actors/actresses who always think that the project they're working on is always going to be so much different than "anything else that's on." News flash Kirstie, reality TV is reality TV. Every show is basically the same.

    And as always, very nice images. I can always use a little bit of that in my life.

  2. Miss Ash Says:
  3. Who stalks Ryan Seacrest....I wonder if the guy is even remotely embarassed about that...I'm guessing not!

    As for MP yes of course I watch and her acting abilities are horrendous at best...I thought that maybe she was cast to play that way...guess not!

  4. Native Minnow - It's so easy with the Lohans that you can pretty much feel good coming around here every Friday. Ha. And I know exactly what you mean regarding "different" reality shows as it is just ridiculous. Glad you liked the ending images & good luck finding it this weekend. Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - Excactly. Nobody sane would stalk Ryan, so maybe this guy will get out by pleading insanity. I haven't seen the new MP, but yeah, apparently everyone is saying that Simpson was pretty horrible, which is saying something because it's not like she is surrounded by thespians on that show. Ha. Happy Friday Miss Ash.

  5. BostonPobble Says:
  6. Gotta love Dita. :) Have a great weekend ~ and thanks for the comments over at mine.

  7. Heff Says:

    Chidi Benjamin Uzomah should be charged simply for not "taking out" Seacrest while the opportunity was available.

    Lindsay need to purchase the book for dummies on HOW TO BE -WITH - A MAN, although I HAVE heard rumors that she may have switched teams again....

    Tattletale, indeed. Have you SEEN Forrester ? Hell, I BELIEVE HER.

    The only thing Jessica Simpson needs to "rip" is her clothes....OFF.

    Congrats to "Octo-Mel" !!!

    Are Martin and Baldwin going to dress like funeral directors for the Oscars as pictured ?

    Re : Pitt - No shit. I'll bet I saw the clip of him busting his ass on his bike 50 times this week. The best part was that it got funnier every time !!!

    Yes, we all know how good Kirstie Alley is with GOALS !

    And in closing, after that last picture, I think I'm in need of medical aid !!

    Have a "downtown patio" Kind of weekend, 2 Dollar !

  9. wigsf Says:
  10. Ryan Seacrest secretly hired the guy to stalk him because having a stalker ups Ryan's celeb status to "stalkable."

  11. kmwthay Says:
  12. Boy, a boring week in hollywood.

    I am having a difficult time understading how Ryan Seacrest is stalkworthy. He's more facepunchworthy than anything.

    I'm not here to say whether or not Josh Duhamel had anysort of one night stand with a stripper, but I am here offering Josh Duhamel a one night stand with me. ;)

    And I hate to break the news to Ashley and Jessica, but I would hardly call anything on the CW "acting." So I don't know if Ashley should be insulted or grateful.

    I would love to see Steve Martin and Dan Akroyd host the Academy Awards as "Two Wild and Crazy Guys."

    Happy weekend BDS, and enjoy this awesome November weather!

  13. BostonPobble – I always love Dita, and no problem on the comments as I meant them & am sorry it took so long to get over there. Happy Friday nonetheless.

    Heff – That’s OK when you bring the detail, so . . . Seacrest was probably hiding under his desk so it was likely hard to find him, almost had a comment referring to that myself with Lohan, I haven’t seen her (but I take it that I should), that’s probably coming for Simpson since her career is definitely floundering, I still like Gibson better than Jon & Kate or OctoMom, I bet they dress a bit livelier, I finally saw that clip too and it was pretty damn funny, Alley’s GOALS have been well documented and get yourself to a Dr if needed. Happy Friday Heff.

    WIGSF – It’s possible, although he should have hired a female if that were the case versus an ex-marine or army guy or whatever. That would be my recommendation. Happy Friday.

    Kmwthay – It seems to get slow as we move towards the holidays, but . . . like the facepunchworthy comment on Seacrest, that’s awfully generous of you to take over for the stripper with Duhammel, Ha, I think Ashlee should be insulted because as you noted, there is a lot of bad acting there & if hers was worse, then that would make me nervous about my abilities, and why not dust off Ackroyd for that skit? Sounds like a good idea to me. Happy Friday and I plan to enjoy the weather for sure.

  14. JLee Says:
  15. I had forgotten about "Contact". I'm sure McConaughey hopes we forget it too. lol Just weird.

    Who the hell names a strip club "The Tattletale Club"??? He was asking for it...

    Great pics (Dita rocks) and enjoy this gorgeous gorgeous weather. Too bad we can't ALL skip out of work early ;)

  16. Wendy Says:
  17. Pretty much everyone you mentioned made my skin crawl, especially Mel Gibson, whose movies I now refuse to watch. But Steve Martin... just saw The Jerk again on TV. I'd forgotten how hilarious and brilliant he was... "I'm picking out a thermos for youuuu..."

  18. Linda Says:
  19. I'm starting to think that the Lohans are just attention whores. They all deserve each other. Love the Oscar hosts for this year. Now let's see if they can make the show a little less tedious. Have a great weekend and Happy Friday!!

  20. Jlee - I hadn't seen it in a decade, and while it's not a great movie, I like it OK. And yes, anyone who works at a club w/ that name cannot be trusted to stay quiet. Ha. Finally, sorry you can't skip out . . . unless your'e sick (?), but Happy Friday nonetheless.

    Wendy - I'm not a big fan of them either with the exception of Baldwin and Martin and who I think will do a good job at the Oscars. And I need to re-watch the Jerk now that you mention it . . . Happy Friday.

    Linda - Yeah, they all kind of deserve each other, but none of them will shut up for even a week, so they keep making QHF. Ha. I think Martin/Baldwin will help, but they can only make it less tedius if they cut some of the montages and musical numbers and trim the broadcast by at least 30 minutes. Doubt it. :) Happy Friday.

  21. nobich Says:
  22. Happy Friday everyone!!

  23. Boxer Says:
  24. I was in such a work/travel cloud last week that I'm here to get the news I missed. And glad to see Heff here too. I want to say more, but I'm jet laggy.

  25. Nobich - Happy Friday to you. Sorry it took so long. Ha.

    Boxer - That's OK as traveling wears my ass out too. Hope you had a good time . . . and Happy Friday to you. It was a slow week so you didn't miss too much.
