How did no one mention Winston’s pink and purple combo on last night’s New Girl? The man was wearing a lavender sweater over a pink Oxford and Nick didn’t zing him? There must be a zinger on the cutting room floor somewhere, because we were waiting for it the entire time. Luckily Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner stopped by as Jess’s adorable divorced parents so we were able to distract ourselves, but still. This is not Easter! Earth tones, people. Everything else in this holiday episode was adorable but where was Schmidt on that one?
One of the only good things about a disaster on the scale of Hurricane Sandy is that it definitely helps put things in perspective. And celebrities of every stripe are using their money and influence to spread the word and help those in need! Of course on the wake of the storm’s destruction, many eyes turned towards New Jersey’s favorite son: Bruce Springsteen. And he hasn’t let us down. At a concert in upstate NY, The Boss dedicated a heartfelt rendition “My City Of Ruins” to his hometown of Asbury Park, and thanked emergency responders for all of the work they’ve done. He is set to headline a benefit concert called Coming Together with fellow Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel and Sting, which will air this Friday at 8 PM on NBC. The telethon will be hosted by Matt Lauer and will also feature appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Brian Williams, and we’re sure many more.
The cast of Jersey Shore has been mourning the loss of their Boardwalk, and posted numerous well wishes to their twitters. J-Woww was reportedly moved to tears when surveying the damage, and Snooki has offered her volunterring services and pledged to donate money to rescue efforts and repairs to her Seaside Heights home turf. “Cleaning my closet today to donate clothes and whatever I can do the victims affected by sandy!” she posted to her twitter. “I’m comin with clothes!!!!”
The night before the You Again premiere, two of the movie’s stars, Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver were having a chat on the phone. The film, BTW, deals with three generations of women who were high school rivals. But in real life, these two are totally besties now, naturally.
Jamie Lee Curtis: Hey S.Weave!
Sigourney Weaver: Hey JLC!
JLC: So I was thinking, wouldn’t it be a hoot if we showed up at the premiere wearing the exact same dress? ‘Cause then the fashion police won’t get to choose who’s hotter. I love you!
SW: You mean to say you’re scared someone will say I’m hotter than you, even though I’m older? Hah. Joking! I love you!
JLC: Erm. Okay.
SW: I was totes kidding. You’re just a little bit on edge ever sinceÃ‚Â people started calling you the poop Czar!
JLC: Listen, Activia yogurt is one of the reasons why I still look awesome in a dress. OKAY?
SW: Calm down, babe. Get your sh*t together! HeeHee
JLC: Look are we doing this or not? Are we going to be ironic or what?
SW: You’re on!
The night of the premiere
SW: I thought we were supposed to wear the exact same dress, Jamie.
SW: Then why is yours hemmed shorter than mine?
SW: And why are you showing more side-boob than me?
SW: And is that a FAKE TAN?
SW: You b*tch!
JLC: Looks like I really AM the sh*t!
That’s not a peace sign, that’s the symbol for going number two. And Jamie Lee Curtis should know, she’s all but the most recognizable face in America’s war against irregularity.
For those of you stuck in the bathroom for the past few years, Curtis has been the face of Activia yogurt, the goo that makes you poo (trademark!). And as a result, she says that people are really comfortable approaching her to discuss their digestive issues.
She puts it bluntly: “I have a job where I advertise yogurt that makes you poop. Now people tell me about their bowel movements every day.” What a wonderful world we live in where such a product exists, and not only that, that the star of Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the face of it, and people are comfortable enough to want to tell her their own sh*t stories. (Hey, that’s what could round out the trio of our favorite shows which also includes Storm Stories and Celebrity Ghost Stories! Celebrity Sh*t Stories.)
Jamie Lee adds that she’s shocked by the response, saying “I never in my life thought that would happen when I first was asked by this company, Activia, Dannon, to be their representative. I go out now and talk about bowel movements and about how people’s digestive tracts work. But it has turned out to be the most fun thing.” Hey, we love talking about poo as much as the next guy, but we never realized you could make a job out of it either.
