Check out Karalee’s Pop Culture Countdown after the jump!
Like so many others, I’m ready to hit the “reset” button on this week. I know I’m not alone with the heavy heart I’ve carried the past few days — from the horror in Boston to the devastation in West, Texas and everything in between —it’s all made for a scary and terribly sad week. This column always hopes to provide a few chuckles and a bit of escapism fun. I hope you’re able to find that, whether here or somewhere else. To make your heart really soar, be sure to look up the video of Boston Bruins fans singing the national anthem at the first hockey game after the tragic bombings. Fortitude at its finest.
And now here’s this week’s PCC:
Puff, puff, preggers?
Is she or isn’t she? That is the question swirling around Rihanna like a cloud of ganja smoke. Canceled tour dates are the key ingredient in this pregnancy rumor du jour.
If it is true and assuming the baby daddy is Chris “Light as a Feather” Brown, all I will say is, “Congrats, Kim Kardashian! I have now found someone else’s pregnancy who repulses me more than yours.”
Remember Lara Flynn Boyle? The raven-haired beauty from shows like “The Practice” and “Twin Peaks,” and also one-time Jack Nicholson lady love? Oh and she also once wore a pink tutu to the Golden Globes.
Well, she’s been out of the spotlight in recent years…and maybe that’s a good thing. ‘Cuz she was spotted in Beverly Hills this week. And it was different.
Like Carrot Top different.
I’m not saying she’s had work done. But I am saying she’s had plastic surgery. (Or so it would seem. I’m not a doctor, I just pass medical judgment on aging stars.)
You gotta have Friends
Why must they toy with me like this? NBC quickly shot down a rumor this week that claimed one of my all-time favorite shows, “Friends,” was going to have a reunion special. No orange couch. No Central Perk. No Regina Phalange. Heavy sigh. Followed by an even heavier sigh when I realized the show went off in 2004. How is that possible? That’s NINE years ago! Trust me, I took entry-level math three times in college. The show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman reportedly said, “’Friends’ was about that time in your life when your friends are your family and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.” Awww, I think I read that on a Hallmark once.
What would Brandon say?
I love “Beverly Hills, 90210” more than most things in life. (Judge all you want, Judys…I don’t care. Peach Pit forever!) Ahem, anyway, as much as I love this show, I was mightily dismayed to learn Ian Ziering, who played permed Steve Sanders, is heading to Vegas to be a stripper.
I’m sorry, but I’m going to need the names and numbers of all the women who filled out a comment card at the Las Vegas Chippendales demanding to see this. (For those who care, and sadly I know some of you do, Ian will be following in the footsteps of Joey “Whoaaa!” Lawrence and 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons.) Fans will be delighted to know Steve will be dancing to tunes spun by David Silver and Ray Pruitt will perform a live guitar accompaniment.
Looking for a way to perk up your wardrobe? Look no further than Vin Diesel. Yes, he and the rest of the “Fast & Furious” crew have inspired more than insipid storylines and gratuitous half-naked dancers. They’ve now inspired a clothing line from GUESS.
The 15-piece collection is described as a “meeting at the intersection of body conscious and bold designs.” Sadly, that’s better written than all of the movies combined.
Have a great weekend, everyone. Hug the ones you love and don’t rush your family off the phone. Catch ya on the flip side!
