DEFENDING OUR "SHORE"

You’re not going to believe this, and I really don’t believe it myself, but I’m going to defend those yo-yos on “Jersey Shore” – well sort of.  Just this week, I read that the “stars” of Jersey Shore are heading to the shores of Italy to start filming their next season.  Well, the Italians are […]

THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT GETTING NAKED

  So, a few weeks ago, my nephew sent me a link to the following webpage, “W Magazine Replies to Kim Kardashian’s Tears Over ‘Porn’-y Nude Pics.” Let me start out by saying that I find anything Kardashian disgusting and try to avoid reading about Kim or the rest of the litter. I still remember […]

"GOOD CHRISTIAN BITCHES": HIGH CONCEPT/LOW BLOW

A couple of weeks ago, someone asked on my Facebook page, I Don’t Get It, for my comments about a tv show on ABC’s fall line-up entitled, “Good Christian Bitches.”  So, Rick, here are my thoughts. The tv show is based on the novel by Kim Gatlin.  The “dramedy project,” as it’s described, is about […]

TOO MUCH TIME, TOO MUCH MONEY

I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t use that expression.  I either read about or see someone who just has too much time on his hands, or has too much money, and gets into some sort of trouble.  I see it in people in all walks of life but Hollywood seems to […]

SOME REALLY BONEHEADED PEOPLE!

I miss those days of innocent reality tv shows like Love Connection when the worst you saw were two contestants sheepishly admitting having sex with one another on their first date.  At least back then, they and the host, Chuck Woolery, feigned embarrassment.  Now, you have the Jerry Springer/Maury Povich crowd who readily admit to […]

LORENA BOBBITT REVISITED

I’m not at all familiar with CNN’s correspondent, Alina Cho.  I know she wasn’t all too happy with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown’s op/ed piece he wrote back in 2008 about the rise of Sarah Palin.  Other than that, I haven’t paid any attention to her…until a few weeks ago. She recently interviewed Lorena […]

What’s Wrong With These People?

When I think the “Jersey Shore” crowd has hit bottom, there’s yet something else they do to debase themselves.  Will this never end?  Which one of these losers is baring her bling….

I WANNA BE A REALITY TV STAR WHEN I GROW UP

A couple of weeks ago, I published an article about the media circus surrounding the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. Several readers responded to that article and wrote about heroes, both past and present, and that got me thinking.  On the same day Michael Jackson died, First Lt. Brian Bradshaw was killed in Kheyl, Afghanistan.  […]
