Jon Gosselin tells his sad sad tale!

September 3, 2009

57981223Though it very well should be a little too late to be seeking sympathy from the masses, Jon Gosselin of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus Eight—  who has been TOOLing it up everywhere these days — wants it, wants it bad.  And he’s not afraid to boo-hoo his way further into tool-dom to get it either.

He will be appearing on ABC’s Primetime September 8th where he too will detail the reasons for the demise of his 10 year relationship to Kate Gosselin. (Kate previously appeared on the Today Show with her side of things.)

He says that he was taking “a lot of abuse” from Kate and complains extensively that while she was out promoting her book and the show (that they both share the bill on mind you) poor little A+-for-no-effort father was at home taking care of the kids.  Boo hoo.

He also talks about the manly man incident when the cops were called to their Pennsylvania home.  Apparently, he wouldn’t let Kate in the gate because he wanted to ostensibly spend more time with his kids.  The cops were called and Jon gloats that Kate’s waterworks didn’t well…work and she had to leave.

File under: Can this guy get any more annoying?  Um, I guess.  One more Ed Hardy ill-fitting shirt or psedu-celeb trip to Vegas or torrid story of him using his fame from a show about him and his 8 kids to get chicks and I think I will just barf.  Why would any woman give this man the time of day!


Charles Perez in Battle

August 9, 2009

charles%20perezThe guys I love over at TMZ have recently reported that Charles Perez — after being demoted from his original nightly news post over at an ABC Miami affiliate for being “gayer than the public can handle” — has now been fired after he filed suit.  

I mean how gay is too gay for the public?  Was he walking around in a boa and ass-less chaps?  Who would see the ass-less chaps anyway?  He is behind a desk! Ha.  No, but let’s not be ridiculous here.  It’s the news!  How many ways can you gay that up?  Well, one of the theories is that it has nothing to do with his on-air appeal at all and stemmed from a private email one of Perez’s former boyfriends sent to his bosses.  Seems the sharp-as-nails bosses interpreted the email between Perez and his therapist as a desire to have a sex change operation.  

I feel like I grew up with Perez in a way.  In recent years, I have seen him take over for anchors on ABC New York-side.  I really remember Perez from way back on his Ricki Lake-esque talk show “The Charles Perez Show”.  But, even before that, I remember him on the first season of the “Real World”.  He had a brief-yet-memorable pairing with Norm, if you recall.  Remember when they went to the rally together and sat cuddling on the grassy knoll?  Back then, he was trying desperately to keep his sexuality a secret and I think that was what lead to the demise of his burgeoning relationship with Norm.  Norm cried and cried!  Awww!  

Anyway, Perez is suing and he has every right to.  I am so sick of the archaic!  Just let the man be and do his job!  I mean look at Sam Champion!  I am still not sure if he came out yet but, if you remember from another post, when you walk around the city in frayed cut off shorts and rollerblades, doesn’t leave very much to the imagination.  Maybe New York is just a bit more forward-thinking and forgiving (even the gays should be mad about the cutoff shorts)!  

File under: And remember those steely blue eyes?  Wish you luck, Perez!

So you guys know how I am the envy of a hoard of teenage girls and some really confused teenage and middle-age boys/men, right?  Well, that’s why I am blogging about it so you will know.  SHIT! 

So, anyways, I happen to work right next to where they shoot some integral scenes for Gossip Girl.  I was never into it but YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE said I would find it rather entertaining so I bought the first season DVD and did find it rather amusing. XoXo.  So it’s season 2 and I feel really gay gay gay for still tuning in every week to see what over-indulgent melodramatic tragedies our poor little rich kids could possibly be facing.  With their Louis Vuitton clutches in hand, the world could be so brutal!

But back to the fact that it took me a good month to even recognize they were shooting right next door (and the scenes were outside mind you).  This shows how much I mind my own business (or more like how often I am stuck in my office like a caged bird.  Right, Maya Angelou?  You tell ’em, girl!)  I’d been watching the show and didn’t even recognize the landmarks from the neighborhood. 

But my cluelessness aside, let’s go to the cast.   So I have to  start by saying that I am a Starfucker (not that I have ever; well, there was that one time but I think an MTV reality “star” hardly counts).  But, yeah, it’s like as long as you are on TV I find you hot.  This is why when I saw Sam Champion (did he finally come out publicly yet?  I ain’t blind item-ing this ass) in cutoff shorts with fringe, a tank, and roller blades in the Chelsea-Flatiron border I was sooooo confused.  I know the “cool” part of me should have been appalled, disgusted, and maybe even belligerent with him (I mean fringe??? Rollerblades???  Chelsea???)  but the Starfucker part of me said he’s a weatherman!!!   From ABC!!!  (I think I need some sort of intervention!!!  Seriously!!!)

But, yeah, I keep digressing.  The cast… The cast…  Gossip Girl… Well, that one that plays Blair?  She is actually really really hot in person; very cute.  I’d do her!!!  The blonde?  Not so much.  Is that weird?  Just seems like she would be cute in person.  Not!  And Dan, oh Dan, why in the world do they put more makeup on you than the females in the show.  On the show, I absolutely fell in love with him.  I wanted a Dan for myself.  You know?  The sweet unsullied wannabe writer (he reminds me of someone I know very well).  But he’s just not cute in person at all.  Yes, girls, gays and the confused, I saw him pretty close up.  He delivered some lines and had to appear as if was walking out of the scene and did so at the expanse only a few feet away from where I and some other onlookers were.   Well, we were face to face and this dude is F.U.G.L.Y.!  Ugh. 

I haven’t gotten to see the rest of the cast but I am sure I will have some interesting stories to tell soon.  Well, that’s if my job, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, won’t keep me locked up tight for a century of lonely nights, waiting for someone to release me (Right, Christina Aguilera?  You tell ’em, girl!)

Side bar before I sign off: Some of the extras are actually really hot though I feel really weird finding actors and actresses in schoolboy/girl uniforms cute! 

Signing off…  XOXO, Gossip Boy!!!
