Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz says he will not be continuing with the series, meaning in all likelihood, the show is dead. The twenty-five people who watched it, myself included, are devastated by the news.
Let’s take a moment to say goodbye to the funniest sitcom in television history. And try not to forget that Reba recently aired its 200th episode. It’s a cruel, cruel world we live in.
Blurry video footage shot by an amateur photographer from a decent distance away? Sounds like someone from the North East spotted another sasquatch, right? Wrong. More like somebody from South
Central spotted… wait for it… the late, great, Tupac Shakur.
Just watch this video.
What do you think? Is it him, or is it a guy in a Tupac costume, hanging out and smoking cigarettes just like the Tupacs are known to do? It’s hard to say. I just hope it’s real, because if it is then it’s only a matter of time before we find the Loch Ness Monster and/or the Notorious B.I.G. next.
As you know, Star Jones and Joy Behar got into it on when Star called into The View to talk about her breast lift. Watch as Joy writes a note to her cohosts (I’m guessing it read something like, "Get her off the phone!"), then cuts off Star, then gets bleeped when she says that she hopes that Star’s boobs are perky. In the end, you can hear Star say that Behar is still a bitch. Great stuff.
In case you missed last night’s Gauntlet 2 season finale and reunion, here’s a brief summary:
- The rookies won.
- Kina and Cara inexplicably hate each other.
- Robin has brown hair now.
- Cara and Montana both hooked up with Jamie during the show.
- And host TJ Lavin almost butted heads with Syrus during one heated gauntlet (remember guys, it’s just ‘Name that Coconut’)
But the biggest news of the night was Mark’s long-awaited retirement. The original road rules cast member who’s outlasted Eric Nies on MTV reality spinoffs is finally hanging up his cheezy bandana. While his myspace page explains he’s retiring from the MTV reality cycle to host a brand new show on FOX called Reality Remix- we wonder if our forboding post last week had anything to do with his decision. (note the irate comment from "renaldo").
If you’re not already reading the sporadically-updated blog of A-list Hollywood screenwriter Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds, The Black Dahlia), you really should be. Even if you only have a passing interest in screenwriting, or even none at all, Friedman is consistently hilarious, entertaining and insightful. Like William Goldman, but angrier and way more funny. Anyway, here’s an excerpt from his latest post – a mediation on mortality, and the ways in which our words can help us live on:
"Our words will always outlive us, immortalizing us if not always powerful enough to make us immortal. Although if we choose our words well, there will always be a way back to life, a way to and fro
through time…If we choose our words well there need not always be a last. If we choose our words well there will always be a way to find us. I have chosen my words. They are:
There are motherf**king snakes on the motherf**king plane."
We think Katie Holmes has been a great partner to Tom Cruise throughout her pregnancy. Our only complaint is that she’s way too noisy. While she usually lets Tom do most of the talking, the few times she does speak her voice threatens to bother the baby. Which is why we’re thrilled Katie decided to birth her baby in complete and utter silence.
In fact, she’s not the only one who can’t make noise. Tom has posted a sign outside their mansion requesting silence and slow physical movement anywhere near the unborn baby. Any loud noise from Katie, the doctors or any one else involved in the birthing process could be detrimental and irritating to
Tom, we mean the baby.
Hey, guess what, after watching WifeSwap, Prison Break, 24, and The New Adventures of Old Christine last night, I’m willing to say that I had the best night ever. Check it out.
Star Jones called into The View to talk about her breast lift, and apparently Joy Behar got sick of hearing about it. After Jones talked about for a while about how the lift was quite a hoist, Behar took the bull by the horns:
… Behar grabbed a pen and furiously scribbled a note, then gestured to Meredith Vieira to read the note, tapping the paper for emphasis. "Last Friday was my 44th birthday, but my boobs still think they’re 20," Jones said – and that’s when Behar heard enough. "OK, Star. That’s enough about you. On to us. ‘Bye," she snapped.
Behar was bleeped when she added "Keep your [breasts] perky!" in a mock-cheerful voice. "I’m glad to see you haven’t changed," Jones shot back. "Even today, you are still a b***h," she said before the call was abruptly cut off.
Do I detect a note of jealousy?
