Sometimes people want…

…second chances. Once you’ve been impeached from a government position, are you allowed to run for office again? Like, for example, say you were the governor and then you were impeached for being a total DB, are you banned from running for the position once more? Because I get the feeling that Mr. Blago has the audacity to run over and over again. And by audacity, I mean balls. He is so crazy. You know what’s even crazier? Illinoisans, the same Illinoisans who voted for Blago twice and elected the last 4 of 8 corrupt Illinois governors, might just elect him again! I’ll miss him. But mostly, I’ll miss the hair. But not as much as I miss the Spice Girls. (You knowI had to throw that in there. I had to. I couldn’t resist.)...

Sometimes I feel like a newsie…

…so I put on my cap, sing and dance and almost go on strike? No. I don’t. Sing? Yes. Dance? Absolutely. But I’m not the type to strike. But most of France is on strike right now. It’s been a rough day for them. And will continue to be as their economy goes down the toilet as well. I read an article today that, instead of fully explaining the strike, talked about how people commuted to work without a fully functioning metro. Apparently rollerblading is a big thing and I imagined hundreds of people rollerblading around Paris. Wouldn’t that be awesome? New Yorkers should try it. Of course, that means I would need to learn how to rollerblade but I’m in if you are. Did you see Blago today? He gave an hilarious closing statement at his impeachment trial. Hilarious meaning ridiculous and arrogant once you realized that the sincerity that he was trying so hard to create was a bunch of bologna. For half a second, I was almost convinced we shouldn’t impeach him until he said something like “Walk a mile in my shoes. If this could happen to me, it could happen to you…” Coming from his lips, that phrase sounded especially threatening. Then he continued, “Do you know how painful it is to drive down the street and see people waiting for the bus who voted for me. Well presumably voted for me. More of them did, than didn’t and know that I can’t help them…I want to apologize but I can’t… ” Man, he is one crazy son of a…woman with amazing hair. At...

Sometimes my Backstreet Boys…

…grow up so fast! Nick Carter turned 29 today on January 29th. Aw, how cute. Honestly, I can’t believe he’s only 29. Perhaps in another life, I would have had a chance with him after all. He was only seven years older than me this whole time??? (More like six and a half but who’s counting…Oh wait, I am.) He’s celebrating in Canada. Why? Because ever since his reality television show, House of Carters, revealed the Carter’s true colors, he hasn’t been able to show his face in the states. And maybe Canadians throw better birthday parties. It’s possible. Have you ever celebrated your birthday in Canada? Exactly. So don’t rule out the possibility that birthdays are that much better up north. But I’d just like to say, Nick Carter, Happy Birthday and thank you. Thank you for getting me through some rough and chubby pre teen and teenage years. I used to love you. Now I just have fond memories of our time together. And by our time together, I mean the few years I listened to BSB albums every single night and stared at your poster above my bed. Did I mention that I miss the Spice Girls? The boy band/girl band era was good to me. I can’t wait to tell my kids about it. And they will be forced to listen. Love,...

Sometimes American Idol visits…

…Saaaaalt Laaaaake Citttyyyyy: my home away from home away from home.  That makes sense, I promise. I just finished watching this week’s episode of AI and I’m still taking it all in.  Let’s chat for a minute about this episode so I can get some sleep:    1.  OMG, Utahns are like so gosh darn it all nice!  They were grateful through tears of rejection!  They smiled after hours of waiting in line, wishing, hoping, praying…for a chance to…say something nice on the camera?  Seriously, the producers did everything they could to find some crazy for that episode and it was still the most bland episode, probably ever.  Even the bad singers were decent.  2.  An Osmond?  Really?  He had to audition?  He really doesn’t have any other connections in the music business?  Really? 3.  Utah is a beautiful state full of beautiful people.  Why do you think I had to leave?  In Utah, I’m  a 2 but in New York City I’m at least a 6 or a 7.   But seriously, there are about 9 ugly people in Utah and apparently ALL of them think they are the next American Idol.  Utah, a state with a population of over 2,000,000 people, has less than 10 ugly people.   And you lucky viewers saw them all.    In the end, I saw some of my old friends, acquaintances, singing nemesis, nemesi, nemesises?  And I thought, wow, I’m so glad that’s not me.   I can’t wait to be made fun at work today.   Thanks American Idol.  And thank you, happy happy Utahns.   Love, Jenna P.S. The girl who...

Sometimes ugly…

…goes too far.   Tonight I’m bringing you entertainment news.  Stop pretending you don’t care and read. Ugly Betty is going on hiatus.  Why?   Braces, unibrow, out of control frizz, horrible sweaters, nagging personality.  It all adds up to one thing: Ugly Betty it just too ugly.  Remember the movie, “She’s All That.”  Of course you do.  Ugly in that movie meant Rachael Leigh Cook with glasses.  Now that’s the kind of ugly Americans want to watch.  Americans don’t need to watch ugly people on TV because Americans have to stare at themselves in the mirror everyday.  And lastly, I’ll believe just about any story line you throw at me but I refuse to believe that Betty’s personality is so good she can attract two smokin’ hot guys who are willing to risk their own beauty in a fist fight for her affection.  No, leave ugly people to the real world, The Real World, or any other crappy reality program starring that rapper with the giant clock around his neck.   This just in: Rod Blago and Jackie Chan are going to appear together in an ad campaign for Head and Shoulders.  Blago couldn’t be happier; he could really use the work right now. It’s a match made in hair heaven.  It would make Jonathan Antin cry tears of joy or beeyotchie jealousy.  Robbie Williams is moving back to the UK.  No, not Robin, Robbie.  You know, the guy who sang that song.  It was on the radio occasionally a couple of years ago.  He misses England.  And the career he left over there.  Poor guy.
