Are you down with PCC?
Sorry, I’ve been holding that joke in for weeks now. This is Father’s Day weekend and the super fantastic Karalee is back with her recap of all this weeks pop culture happenings.
What’s happening? Friends is on the old sitcoms channel! Kris Jenner dishes out sage advice like being on a reality show is better than college and more wonderful nuggets!
Check it out below!
Hola friends! Wishing all the great dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day weekend. I surprised my wonderful father last night by flying home to the Mitten – needless to say, he was stunned and thrilled. With all the pregnant celeb mamas, sometimes it’s easy to forget the papas.
Thankfully (and by “thankfully,” I mean “woefully”), someone like the ever-modest Kanye West won’t ever let us forget him. Ever. If you haven’t yet read his recent New York Times interview, make that must-read #2 – after this week’s PCC, naturally. Speaking of which,…here we go…
Could we BE any more depressed?
One of my all-time favorite shows, “Friends,” is coming to…wait for it…TV Land. Say whaaa? How old am I?! I’ll be there for you, indeed. With some Metamucil and compression socks, apparently.
Mom-ager extraordinaire and soon-to-be talk show host Kris Jenner said in a recent interview that the business empire her family has created employs hundreds of people and is a great learning experience for her kids, adding “It’s the best education I could offer them.” Or college, Kris, there is college. Higher learning can involve more than for-profit sex tapes and made-for-TV weddings. But what do I know? All my parents did was send me to a four-year university. That’s the best education they could offer me.
How the West was won
Oh Kanye. I try so hard to turn away but you and your humble heart pull me back every time. From the interview I mentioned earlier, he delivers some outstanding quotes. It’s truly mind blowing that one, he not only thinks these things, but says them aloud. To another person. For print. Here’s one of my favorite Kanye gems (and trust me, there are A LOT):
“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”
It’s nice to see that impending fatherhood has really given him new perspective. Somewhere, even Donald Trump is shaking his said, saying, “Too far, Kanye. Too far.”
Hookups? Hold up.
In the world of “Where’d that come from?” there were reports of two new pairings this week. The first being Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber (that sound you hear is part of your soul breaking).
Miley took to the radio airwaves and refuted the hook-up claim, spouting the ol’ “I’m engaged, y’all!” excuse. Sure, sure, M. Cy. Whatever you say. Not because I believe the claim to be true. But because I truly don’t care. The second new couple alert was that of jiggle-jangle supermodel Kate Upton and “Dancing with the Stars” bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Oh yeah. That has “till death do us part” written ALL over it.
Ageless John Stamos said this week that “Full House” co-star Lori Loughlin may have been “the one that got away.” Apparently the duo went on a date to Disneyland when they were in their late teens but timing and life got in the way. Um, Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky could actually have been the real-deal Holyfield?! Am I the only one humming along to “Forever” right now? Anyone? Hello? This made me think of other TV couples I would love to hook up in real life.
Tops on my list, without question: Jennie Garth and Luke Perry.
Followed by Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen.
And to go “old school,” I loved George Clooney and Julianna Margulies when they were on “ER.”
I’m sure there are many more, but those are just off the top of my head. If you care to share your top wish-pick, feel free to leave it in the comments area below.
That’s all for this week…catch ya on the flip side!
