It’s Best Night Ever for Sunday, June 18th! Robin Hopkins is here to walk you through the best of Sunday night tv, including Treasure Hunters, Deadwood, and Entourage!
First of all, the theme of this week’s BWE Drinking Game is “genitalia”. On tonight’s new episode at 11pm, every time you see private parts – as a reference, as an actual thing, on people or meerkats – take a drink and prepare yourself for a difficult next morning.
In last night’s candid interview with Britney Spears, Matt Lauer pulled out all the stops and did his darndest to MAKE BRITNEY CRY. (audience applause). At first it seemed like no matter what tear-jerking question he asked, she wouldn’t turn on the water-works. But after a few rounds with the Lau-ster, she was puddy in his hands. Ladies and Gents, witness the undefeated tearful-breakdown champion in action. It’s Matt Lauer Makes Them Cry: Britney Edition!
When celebrities sacrifice themselves at the altar of Exclusive Primetime Interviews, it usually means they’ve been taking a bad enough beating in the press that they have no choice but to go on national television and try to convince America that they’re not the freaks we’ve come to think they are. Britney’s tearful carnival of absurdity last night on Matt Lauer is a great example. Sometimes these celebs manage to provide us with enough insight to empathize with their struggles (UPGRADE), while other interviews only confirm their craziness and leave us wondering whether their publicist might need to be put on a suicide-watch (DOWNGRADE). Take a look at these memorable interview pairings, then let us know who comes out clean and who’s dirtier that Sean Preston’s diapers.
Frisky right wing View co-Host Elizabeth Hasselback can deal with you ripping on Laura Bush, the war in Iraq or Ann Coulter, but whatever you do don’t call her honey. When Sandra Bernhard sat in the hotseat this morning, not only did she send Hasselback into a mouth-foaming, head-spinning fury when she used the term of affection, she set off a chain reaction that sent all the other co-hosts into a screaming match that rivaled Jerry Springer. Oh yeah, it’s a good one.
Thanks to laughterkey for dropping this amusing clip from some local news team who is apparently fed up with the popularity of Jon Stewart and those cool kids over at The Daily Show, and decided to do something about it. And by “do something about it”, I mean create a video segment demonstrating Jon Stewart’s infuriating inability to properly pronounce the name of Indiana’s beloved city, “Terre Haute”.
Forget about Bush dissing the blind and Britney breaking down on TV– today D-Listed directed us to the best video of the week.
In honor of VH1′s Save The Music, the beautiful Beyonce put herself up for auction on eBay– the winner got to have dinner with the star. Well, as it turns out, the people who placed the winning bid were actually members of PETA, and used the dinner to ambush Beyonce about the use of fur in her clothing line. TMZ has the video of the entire thing.
You gotta feel sorry for Beyonce. First she got Punk’d by Ashton, and now PETA. I wonder which is worse…
Not since the untimely deaths of Biggie and Tupac has the hip-hop world been so swiftly dealt two consecutive blows as crushing as yesterday’s news that Jay-Z is boycotting Cristal Champagne (whose highfalutin executives have grown increasingly uncomfortable with rappers associating themselves with their product), and that bling baron Jacob the Jeweler, apparently dealing more than just diamonds, got busted on drug charges and might not be making any more iced-out gold ropes for a very long time. So, in less than 24 hours, two of the primarly foundations upon which the entire hip-hop empire has been built have been ripped out from under it. Without the luxurious refreshment of Cristal, or shiny diamond-encrusted golden goblets from which to drink it, what accoutrements of success can young rapper aspire towards anymore? I did a little brainstorming and came up with a list of suggested wealth-affirming baubles that might serve as acceptable replacements for the bubbly and the bling that will now be conspicuously missing between the death threats and sexual boasting in all your favorite rap songs. Take our poll and decide which of these items YOU’D like to hear about in every hip-hop track for the next 10 years!
