Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, March 19, 2010

“Never get behind old people. Their bodies are littered with hidden metal and they never seem to appreciate how little time they have left.” – George Clooney, ‘Up in the Air’

I’ll try to remember that truism this weekend when I depart for Mendocino on a solo trip to do some hiking, and clear my head before starting a new job come April. I’m looking forward to it - the trip at least.

But before that can happen, let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

People magazine reported this week that Sandra Bullock has left the Southern California home she shares with husband Jesse James after alleged rumors surfaced that James cheated on Bullock.

Bullock's rep has not commented on the In Touch Weekly story that broke the affair story, and the article quoted tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee as saying she had an affair with James last year.

James was rumored to be especially sneaky with his affair - he only cheated with McGee when he was planted firmly in Bullock's Blind Side. Ouch.

Charlie Sheen pleaded not guilty to domestic violence charges on Monday following a holiday 911 call from his wife to Colorado police in which she told them that Sheen had put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.

The plea was entered by Richard Cummins, a Colorado attorney who represents Sheen. The star of "Two and a Half Men" on CBS is charged with menacing, criminal mischief and assault.

Richard 'Dick' Cummins is being charged with provoking unintentional laughter from the judge due to his name.

Reality star Heidi Montag announced this week that she will make her big screen debut in an upcoming Adam Sandler comedy titled “Just Go With It.”

Montag will have a cameo role in the romantic comedy. She posted on her Twitter page: "I was just cast in my first feature film comedy! I start filming Monday!!!!! This is one of the best days of my life!!! Getting ice cream to celebrate."

"Ice Cream" is Montag's code word for "Plastic Surgery."

Montag's husband, Spencer Pratt, is reportedly taking a break from the "The Hills" to fight cyber terrorism. Seriously.

Bill Beasley, president of American Defense Enterprises, a firearms training firm in Los Angeles, told that he and Pratt are in the "beginning stages" of negotiations to start a cybersecurity venture.

"He's always been very patriotic," Beasley said Monday. "What you see on television is not him. He's moving out of the Hollywood portion of his life."

Pratt told People magazine: "Upon learning of President Obama's declaration that the 'cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,' I have decided to refocus my energy and devote my full resources to helping America face this and other unprecedented challenges."

Pratt's first cyber mission will be to stop the spread of viruses associated with surfing for pornography.

Kate Winslet has split from her film director husband Sam Mendes, a British law firm said Monday.

The couple separated at an unspecified point earlier this year, Shillings law firm said, and it wasn't clear whether divorce proceedings have begun. The pair have been married since 2003 and have two children.

In a statement e-mailed to journalists, the law firm said the split was "entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement."

Meanwhile, Mendes said the split was indeed mutual "if you consider the Titantic hitting the giant iceberg as a piece of mutual understanding."

Paula Abdul was said to be finalizing a deal this week to help ABC launch a new version of the TV show ‘Star Search.’

The network isn’t commenting, but Abdul would reportedly juggle a combination of hosting and judging duties for the show, which could debut this summer.

ABC wanted to Abdul to host the show so contestants wouldn't be intimidated by an actual Star.

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

Something sweet on the lips works for me, and it's hard to argue with a feather boa in any situation. So, let the feathers fly today, don't be afraid to let things get sticky and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Heff Says:

    Damnit ! You took my "Blind Side" joke !

    "Dick Cummins" ???? Hell, I thought THAT was the name SHEEN used when signing in with whores at sleazy motels !

    I wish Spencer Pratt would leave Hollywood altogether, to fight off "Television Terrorism" !

    Damnit ! Got me with the Titanic joke too ! You're on a roll !

    Re : Abdul - I hope ABC has stockpiled the required amount of prescription drugs to make Abdul entertaining !

    And in closing, Keep it between the lips, and try not to make a mess this weekend, 2Dollar !

  3. Heff - First again, nice work, and appreciate the detail, so I just knew I had to use a Blind Side joke, ha, nice one w/ the Sheen/hotel name as that could even be true, ditto on Pratt as the guy is a complete dipshit, the 'Titanic' came to me at the last minute so whew, I bet the pills are in her contact and I am clean above all else. Happy Friday Heff.

  4. Linda Says:
  5. Both Winslet and Bullock had endeared me to their marriages, so this week's celebrity news made me sad. And then I realized that the demise of any relationship sucks. Bullocks story will be a true study in masterful PR as events unfold. It's been quite a year for her in so many ways. Congratulations on the new job and have fun this weekend. Happy Friday!!

  6. Miss Ash Says:
  7. Your solo trip sounds lovely, I'm in need of such a thing as well.......

    As for Bullock the timing is just awful really I mean talk about a huge high to a huge low, poor gal.

    Enjoy the hiking and your weekend, you do realize that new job means less slacking off right? Ha!

  8. Linda - I agree as I tend to like both couples, and Bullock & Winslet are a couple of my favorite actresses. Too bad on all accounts. Thanks on the job & Happy Friday to you.

    Miss Ash - I can't wait as I haven't done anything like it in a long while. And that is what scares me about the new job. Ha. It's for one of the biggest companies in the world & they probably are a bit more strict . . . oh well, I agree about Bullock & Happy Friday Miss Ash.

  9. JLee Says:
  10. Great quote from "Up in the Air" and so true. haha

    You and Heff covered all the jokes so I'll just say congrats and enjoy your trip. Should be gorgeous this time of year. Maybe you should have put a "blogging clause" in your new job contract ;)

    wv: "catmen"

  11. I had no idea who Jesse James was until this week. And where does one meet a tattoo girl who's willing to have sex in the garage three times a day? I need to know so I can start hanging out there ;-)

    Good luck with the new job!!!

  12. nobich Says:
  13. Happy Friday!!!

  14. Jlee - Thanks on all accounts, and I should have added that clause, although their are some pretty sweet perks in theory at the new place. WE'll see. Now I just have to wrap up things & pack. Happy Friday.

    Native Minnow - Thanks a lot, and you should read the slew of articles that are bound to come out w/ this James/Bullock story as I'm sure many details will emerge which might be useful. Ha. Let's hope, eh? Happy Friday Minnow.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you.

  15. Gypsy Says:
  16. I also feel sad about Sandra and Kate's marriages as those two ladies are classy and more stable than most in the Hollyweird World.

    What? No Lindsay this week?

    Awesome pics at the end and that's also fab news about the job. Congrats and enjoy your hiking weekend too.

  17. TROLL Y2K Says:
  18. The honey-lips picture was kinda gross in my humble opinion.

  19. Heidi Montag needs a brain job to go with the rest of her plastic head. Perhaps this would have a positive effect on her IQ.

  20. Boxer Says:
  21. You did change jobs? I hope it brings many opportunities for a bright future. Still, it's never easy being the "new guy" no matter how great the job.

    Enjoy the trip. I hope it clears your head for the next phase of your career.

    The whole Sandra and Jesse story just makes me sad. :-(

    What a douche.

  22. BostonPobble Says:
  23. The Winslet-Mendes split made me oddly sad (I usually really don't care about celebrity relationships).

    I'm intrigued by Charlie Sheen's definition of domestic violence if that wasn't it.

    And I once knew a man named Dick Seman (say it out loud). I wish I was joking.

    Enjoy your time off. Clear your head ~ and don't worry about the state of your cat. I'm sure he'll be fine. ;)

  24. Maybe James was trying to hide from the embarrassment of seeing his wife in All About Steve.

    Are you kidding me? Sheen's lawyer is Dick Cummin? that makes me laugh. I couldn't find him credible in any profession, but I guess I can see how Sheen does.

    If Spencer looks hard enough, he'll eventually find Heidi on one of his porn sites. I'm sure that day is right around the corner.

    great golden images. I'm diggin the sticky lips.
