Obviously, we’re still waiting for the leaked photo! More importantly, how many more people need to die before they change the gun laws in our great nation?! Latest shooting included 28 people, of which 20 were children. R.I.P. I can’t imagine what the parents are going through right now…
It was a tale of two halves last night between the Eagles and Bengals, well more so a tale of the Eagles only playing well during 2nd quarter with the rest of the game in favor of Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Bengals took advantage of 5 Eagles’ turnovers to take the victory 34-13. Not only did the Bengals take the win, they kept their playoffs hopes alive and control their own destiny with their final two games against the Steelers and Ravens. The Steelers have been very streaky since the Big Ben injury and the Ravens don’t seem to be clicking lately so it’s very much a possibility for the Bengals to make the playoffs AND win the AFC North. As for the Eagles, the season was over weeks ago and it was very evident by the lack of supporters in the stands, quick to boo anything that didn’t go their way throughout the game. It looks like the departure of both Andy Reid and Michael Vick is inevitable but rookie Nick Foles has shown signs that the future could be bright for Eagles.
Is it just me or does it seem like every game this week will either be played very well or the game will be a complete disaster with no in-between? The good games (Giants at Falcons, Vikings at Rams, Packers at Bears, Broncos at Ravens, Colts at Texans, Steelers at Cowboys, Niners at Patriots) all have potential to be a classic, all with major playoff implications. Now there are plenty of potential disasters but the game to definitely avoid this weekend is the Chiefs visiting the Radiers because the only thing on the line in this game is higher draft selection next April. By the way, what was ESPN thinking when they scheduled Jets-Tiants as the last Monday night game of the season?
This weekend I like the Colts (+9) to keep it close against the Texans. The Colts have shown this season that they have late game heroics. If they don’t keep it close, Luck will at least make it so they cover the spread. Also, i’ll be attending the Cowboys game against the Steelers. I wanna see the Cowboys win in person this season dammit!
On The Road is the upcoming film that has received buzz because Kristen Stewart gets topless. The film is an adaptation of the novel by the same name and stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Amy Adams, Alice Braga, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen, in addition to Kristen but none of that matters because all anyone cares about are Kristen’s topless scenes, yes, scenes, plural. Just Google “Kristen Stewart topless” and we’re sure you’ll come across enough rips and still from the film that you likely won’t even bother heading to the theater. But for those who will, On The Road opens in US theaters on December 21st.
In 1947, Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) is a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). [Wiki]
The beautiful Irina Shayk was seen time out of her busy looking-hot schedule to visit ASPCA Adoption Center in NYC to strike a few poses with the center’s long-term resident dog named Lady, who needed a home for the holidays. Judging by the photos, it appears as if Irina was the kind soul who opened her heart for the lucky dog. We’re pretty sure it’s not a coincidence the dog is a female named Lady b/c we’ve all seen what happens w/ male dogs & supermodels. Just in case you missed it the first time around, here the video of Chrissy Teigen (John Legend’s fiance) getting humped by a friend’s dog:
I would just love to see behind the scenes footage of Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj acting like divas on the set of “American Idol,” but I just wish producers wouldn’t be so damn racist in their portrayal of Nicki Minaj as the evil Diva and Mariah Carey as the angelic one. Why can’t they both be bitches?!
These were snapped yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles as judges Keith Urban & Mariah Carey were seen making their fashionable arrivals on the set of “American Idol.” Mariah wore a short & shiny gold dress as she catwalked her way inside the studio w/ her man-slave assistant directly behind her. Nicki Minaj, as expected, followed the bitchy diva script & arrived nearly two hours late to the taping while camera crews waited for her.
It’s sad how he has to walk around wearing boy-Ugs & an old-dude tee, but hey, style-queen Miranda Kerr can’t be every celebrity kid’s mom, right?
These latest photos were snapped yesterday as Christina Aguilera was seen hanging w/ her son Max and her sugar baby boyfriend Matthew Rutler at The Grove. Max hit up Santa, but we all know Santa visits each time he gets tossed between Christina & her ex-hubby Jordan Bratman, who resides in NYC (or at least he did).
Coming to theaters July 12, 2013 is Guillermo Del Toro’s mega science fiction epic Pacific Rim which stars Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Idris Alba. Personally, methinks it looks like next summer’s answer to Prometheus (which was a pretty darn great movie), but we’re told this one is a more standard summer potboiler with really awesome good guys and really bad bad guys. At least good and bad guys in giant robots battling each other against alien invaders.
What else could a summer movie aficioando ask for?
The NOH8 Celebrity Studded 4th Anniversary Party was held at Avalon in Hollywood.

“MTV says the fivesome is “the clear choice for the top spot” after a year that included two No. 1 albums, hits such as “What Makes You Beautiful” and a sold-out world tour.”[HP]
No, we’re not dumping on them just because they’re an obnoxiously cute boy band from the UK. But, really MTV? Your Artist of the Year is One Direction? Guess we know which direction you’re headed in.
After two chart topping albums, millions of screaming teenage fans (and we assume some of their moms as well), a spot on Barbara Walters’s now meaningless 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year list, and a superhit song about telling an ugly girl she’s beautiful, One Direction now claims the mantle of being the most honored musical act by what was once the authority on pop musical entertainment.
In further ironic news, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was named Song of the Year. (If this doesn’t get David Geffen to beg Joni Mitchell to make another studio album . . .)
“According to those who have seen pre-release tracking, Hobbit could open in the $75 million to $90 million range domestically.”[THR]
Ignore what your friends are saying on Facebook: The Hobbit is not “the best movie ever made, you guys”, but it is a pretty darn good one nonetheless. Which is why it opened overseas to a very strong $11.2 million in just 16 foreign markets. Official tallies are not yet in for the North American take from yesterday, but we can easily expect it to match that and more.
As for the full weekend haul, analysts say the movie is on track to open between $75 million and $90 million, though some are being to chirp that a $100 million opening would surprise absolutely no one, especially given the fact that you can see the film in an unheard of number of formats: standard, 3D, IMAX, IMAX 3D, HFR 3D, IMAX 3D in HFR, and more. Somewhere, Galadriel is grinning very, very wide.
