It’s Pop Culture Countdown!
Oh the magic that this week brought! Seriously, I wish Karalee was making some of this up… I really do… Seriously…
We have Reese Witherspoon’s drunken antics! Jessica Alba Skinny girdles! Ice Ice Baby going Amish and Magic Mike is 33! Doh!
I won’t hold up the awesomeness that is this weeks PCC!
Happy Friday, everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out this week’s PCC. Can anyone else believe May 1 will be here in less than a week? To put it another way, there’s only 242 days from now till Christmas (you’re welcome for that). I know time is whizzing by at warp speed, but hopefully we’re all able to take moments of pause, reflect on life’s gifts, and be sure we’ve left the house wearing underwear. (Yes, I’m talking to you, Skinny Gwynnie. You’re stunning, but when you make Giuliana Rancic look plus-sized, maybe it’s time to swing by Red Robin for some bottomless fries,…just sayin’. ) And now, on to this week’s PCC!
You go, girdle!
Jessica Alba is freakishly beautiful. (Just ask Billy Beers.) She recently confided her hot-body secret to Net-a-Porter’s magazine:” “I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it. It was brutal; it’s not for everyone.”
Umm, if wearing one of these…
Can make me look like this…
I will be wearing four of them, 24 hours a day, from now till Christmas (which, again, is 242 days away).
(Editor’s Note: Me too! Me Too! M-)
Stop, collaborate and RUN!
Vanilla Ice. Two words guaranteed to elicit a visceral reaction. Don’t pretend that right now you don’t have the song — you know which one — running through your mind right now. Well, guess what…Rob Van Winkle is back — and he’s Amish! OK, maybe that’s not entirely accurate.
But he does have a new reality TV show called “Vanilla Ice Goes Amish,” which will track Mr. “Go, ninja, go ninja, go!” learning construction from an Amish community in Ohio. The show will air on DIY later this year. The 45-year-old entertainer tweeted earlier this week, “This show is going to be amazing, pure magical.” Sometimes these PCC blurbs just write themselves.
Reese picks up the pieces
Oh, Reese, what happened? Like millions of others, the PCC (i.e. me) adores you. Quick recap for those who missed it: Reese was arrested last week for disorderly conducted after her hubby, Jim Toth, was pulled over in Georgia for drink driving. (He blew a .139; the legal limit in Georgia is .08. I’m no math genius, but I think that’s no bueno.)
Ignoring an officer’s instruction to remain in the car, Reese reportedly got out, stated she’s a U.S. citizen and could stand on American ground. She then asked “Do you know my name?…You’re about to find out who I am.”
Oh, no, Reese. Really? You played that card? Reese, channeling legal advice from Elle Woods, later issued an apology, remorsefully saying “I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.” Reaction spread like wildfire, including a nugget or two from David Spade.
When asked about the incident, the “Rules of Engagement” star reportedly said, “If you have to explain to someone you’re famous, then you’re technically not that famous.” When David Spade starts being the voice of reason in your life, perhaps it’s time to reevaluate some things.
No way, Norway
School officials in Norway opted to reschedule mid-term exams to accommodate for Justin Bieber’s recent concerts. They were reported to have feared students would skip their exams to travel to Oslo to witness the Biebs navigate the stage shirtless, in pants around his knees, all while holding a microphone.
Hey, that’s no small feat; I bet Michael Buble can’t do that.
Good for you, Norway school officials — way to pick a lane and take a stand. You’re a shining example of it never being too late to reevaluate priorities and make modifications, especially when it means young students can ditch school without penalty so they can go see someone who signs, dances, has his monkey confiscated, shares insights about Anne Frank, and keeps drugs and a stun gun on his tour bus. A+ effort!
Make a wish!
Happy birthday, Channing Tatum! The “Magic Mike” star turns 33 today.
The “Sexiest Man Alive” has quite the year ahead of him: the birth of his first child with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, the opening of his summer movie, “White House Down,” and of course, meeting me and stopping to take a quick photo. This will happen, people. Trust me.
Have a great weekend…catch ya on the flip side!
To celebrate the Tatum’s Birthday let’s do a little Channing Tatum photo gallery shall we?
