So with all of my other duties working on Windy City LIVE, writing this blog has been nearly impossible. Yet, I love it. Therefore I have decided to write an entertainment wrap up once a week with my take on all of the pop culture and celeb news from the week. When big news breaks (or when I feel like it), I’ll write other columns, but for now… here we go…
Lady G was in New Zealand for her latest tour and got smacked in the head with a pole by one of her dancers. Ouch! She ended up with a concussion, but finished the show anyway. I’m hoping it smacked some fashion sense into her. Get rid of the weird costumes, you freak! You have talent. You don’t need all of that. The video of her get smacked was on YouTube, but the owner took it down. He probably got offered big bucks by one of the networks to do so. I’m sure it will be popping up tomorrow on some show.
LOOK OUT FOR LINDSAY
Lindsay Lohan is doing well after wrecking her rented Porshe on Friday as she was driving to set of her new movie on the life of Liz Taylor. Here’s the really stupid part. Lindsay had a limo to pick her up and bring her to the set, but she refused it on Friday when he arrived, so she and her assistant drove the Porsche as the limo followed. DUMB! Then she totals the car and tries to blame the truck for cutting her off. No dice, Lindsay. In almost every rear end case (don’t quote me on this), the driver who rear ends is cited for failure to follow at a proper distance and failure to maintain control. Lindsay says her brakes failed. I think her common sense failed. Again. Grow up, child. Follow the rules and you’ll see that life gets much better.
Ok, I get it. People like sneakers. And they like sneakers attributed to rock stars and athletes. But Kanye West’s new Air Yeezy 2 sneakers retail for $245 and before they were released they were selling for $90,000 on ebay. I’m sure the bids were fake and Kanye’s reps were probably behind the ebay bidding war, but really, people. THEY ARE SNEAKERS!!! Do you know how many pairs of Pumas I can get for $245??? I don’t get it, but that’s just me.
CHIPPENDALES JOEY LAWRENCE = YES, LAWD!
Former Blossom star Joey Lawrence is doing a limited run in the famous all-male Chippendales review in Las Vegas. He made his debut Friday. Let me just say, “Book me on the next plane to Vegas!!!” Whew. Now if all child stars could turn out that good! Are you listening, Corey Feldman???
SEE IT: SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN
I finally got around to seeing the new Snow White flick. LOVED IT! The art direction and the cinematography rock. Charlize Theron is brilliant as the evil queen and I didn’t even mind Kristen Stewart as Snow White (although she does come across as her Twilight character at times). Excellent summer flick and well worth it. Check it out.
Last but not least… tune in every Monday to see me on WINDY CITY LIVE on ABC7 in Chicago. You can also watch it online at windycitylive.com
Welcome to franklyHANK’s first live blog. For those of you new to this, it’s simple. Just keep refreshing the page to see my updated comments throughout the Golden Globe Awards telecast on NBC. Newest comments are posted on top. You can make comments to the blog, but they will not post until I approve them, so give me some time. It’ll be a busy, but fun night.
Be sure to tune in to Windy City LIVE tomorrow on ABC7 Chicago or windycitylive.com, both at 9AM. Paige Wiser and David Plummer will recap the winners and losers and stylists Eric Himel and Amy Tara Koch will talk all things fashion. Let the blogging begin.
ALL TIMES CENTRAL
9:56pm Thank God this show ended on time b/c if it had run long, I would have killed myself. It’s over. Amen and Good night. Hope you enjoyed the live blog.
9:54pm Harrison Ford has the big award… Best Motion Picture – Drama: THE DESCENDANTS. Are you kidding me? Really? Really? “The Help” will win the Oscar. The Golden Globes are not really the pre-cursor to the Oscars, so I will hope for better things.
9:47pm Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama: GEORGE CLOONEY for “The Descendants.” Yawn! Although the golf joke about Michael Fasbender’s penis was pretty good. LOL
9:39pm Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical: THE ARTIST
9:37pm Meryl curses when she can’t find her glasses!!! Brilliant. As the music plays her off, she screams, “Oh no, no!!!” And her best line… “And I love you, Viola. You’re my girl.” Gracious to a fault. But Viola should have won! She’ll get the Oscar.
