In the Center of the Ring…

26 Apr

Just like a circus!  Yes, that’s right, Mondoo and friends (Vitamin G included!) went to the circus this past weekend.  Jealous?  You should be!  I saw elephants, tigers, zebras, horses, doggies that did all sorts of tricks, and lots of people in spandex.

Aside from thinking about how fun it will be to take Baby to the circus someday, I couldn’t help but think about one of my favorite childhood television events:  Circus of the Stars.  Anyone out there that still follows my dwindling blog remember this show?  OMG, I loved it!  CBS plucked celebrities from many different genres, assigned them a circus act, they practiced, and then performed for the circus audience.  Notable (at least to me) celebrity appearances:  Kristen Alfonso (Hope from Days of Our Lives), Jennie Garth of Beverly Hills 90210-fame, Hulk Hogan (that’s right, Big Beefer!), Mario Lopez (we all know that he looks good in spandex, hello Spandex Twins!), Weird Al Yankovic, and various cast members from Just the Ten of Us (another late 80s/early 90s favorite of young Mondoo).

At first, I thought it might be fun to develop the ideal Circus of the Stars cast but then I got to thinking about today’s “celebrities” (I use quotation marks because most of today’s celebrities aren’t celebrities at all) and decided it would be more fun to develop a list of “celebrities” who I would like to see eaten by tigers.   Oh there were so many!  But I’ve ridiculed so many celebrities on this blog since its inception that I decided to explore some new faces to mock

Circus Tiger Menu:

Nicole Scherzinger

So until recently, Nicole Scherzinger to me was just some moderately talented pop singer who served as the face of the Pussycat Dolls.  And then I started watching this season of Dancing with the Stars and I developed an intolerance for her cheesy personality, her garish facial expressions, and THE FACT THAT SHE IS TOTALLY CHEATING!  How do you put a dancer/pop singer in a ballroom dancing competition and expect it to be fair?  It’s not fair!  SHE’S A DANCER!  Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater, Nicole.  I hope that you get voted off because bitter housewives like me watch the show and hate you.

Jillian Michaels

Oh Jillian Michaels, the villainess of The Biggest Loser… the tigers might even be afraid of you.  You are evil.  I dunno about the rest of you but having someone scream in my face and demanding that I puke or cry doesn’t really inspire me to work hard and lose weight.  And why does this woman insist that everyone has some deep emotional issue that causes them to be obese.  Maybe they just like food.  I do.  That’s why I eat.  Food is amazing.  I don’t eat because I’m sad, alone, or can’t think of blog topics.  I eat because I love food.  Why is that so hard to believe?  At least we don’t have to worry about her procreating a demon spawn.  Thank all of the Gods for that.

The people on Pretty Wild

Ok, I’ll be honest.  I’ve never actually watched this show.  I just see the beginning minutes as a search for a new show after Kendra airs and occasionally see clips of the ridiculousness on The Soup.  But this post on Gawker gives you a pretty good rundown about what makes it so horrible.  As far as why these people have a show and what makes them “famous,” I’m still trying to figure it out.  The only one that I’m remotely familiar with is the middle child who was part of a celebrity burglary ring.  That’s right.  Her plan to get famous:  steal stuff from celebrities.  Well, apparently it worked because she has a reality show on E!.  Honestly, the people that we really need to feed to the tigers are the creators of this show.  E!, you are one more ridiculous reality show away from being VH1, I’d watch out if I were you.

Baby Daddys on 16 and Pregnant

Ok, so I guess I watch a lot of reality shows but 16 and Pregnant is just one train wreck that I cannot stop myself from watching.  I think it has something to do with being pregnant.  Although excited, I’m pretty nervous about the idea of being Mommy Mondoo and caring for a child but then I watch this show and if these immature young women can do it, then surely I can.  But wow, these Baby Daddys.  They are something.  From fighting with the baby momma while she’s in labor, to leaving the labor room to get some Chinese food, to calling your baby momma a fat, stretch-marked bitch and asking where to sign the papers over for your mistake, well, let’s just say, some classy dudes.  It’s bad enough that most of them don’t physically or financially care for their children but then they have to ridicule the young moms?  Granted, some of the moms are clueless and keep taking these deadbeats back.  Hopefully Dr. Drew can talk some sense into them at the reunion show. And hopefully tigers love the taste of whiney, immature Baby Daddys because there is apparently a surplus out there according to this MTV show.  Enjoy, tigers!

Ke$ha

Oh wow, did you see this thing on SNL?

Eek.  Someone needs to tell this poor man’s Lady Gaga that she blows, big time.  She’s tone deaf and obviously trying too hard with her wardrobe.  Nothing bothers me more when people try too hard to be unique with their outfits and really it just comes off as stupid rather than avant garde.  (I learned that term from Project Runway.  I think it means:  this would look really stupid on normal people but on models or celebrities, it works).  And honestly, if I hear “Tik Tok” one more time on the radio, I’m throwing myself at the mercy of the circus tigers.  Oh and don’t even get me started on the dollar sign.  Ke$ha $uck$.

Love/Hate: E! Entertainment Television

25 Sep

LoveHate

Anyone who has received an email or a text message from me knows that I love exclamation points (!!!!), so it only makes sense that this week’s edition of Love/Hate covers E! Entertainment Television, the network that also loves exclamation points.

Love:

1)  The Soup and Joel McHale. I don’t think that I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like The Soup.  And I mean, really, how could you not love that show or Joel McHale? We all hate celebrities but Joel McHale hates them more and he’s funnier than all of us so we sit and watch and laugh every week.

2)  The Girls Next Door Seasons 1-5. I know, who would’ve thought that I’d fall in love with these three blonde bimbos, but I truly did.  I loved their interactions, their antics, and their fake, forced relationships with Hef.  I loved them so much that I watched the first season of Kendra and will probably even watch the second season.  But I can tell you one season that I won’t be watching… (Spoiler Alert, See Hate #2)

3)  E! News. I love celebrity news and gossip; hence half of the links on the blog roll.  I really can’t help it and E! News feeds into this addiction of mine.  I could do without Giuliana Rancic though, she is hard on the eyes and needs to eat some cheeseburgers.  And stop looking like an alien.

4)  E! True Hollywood Story. This show was a suitable replacement for VH1’s Behind the Music and it covered more than just musicians, so bonus.  I also love that they completed obscure episodes like “Mischa & Kristin: Babes of O.C.” (about “celebrities” Mischa Barton & Kristin Cavallari) and Mr. T.  (Side note:  Did you know that VH1’s Behind the Musicis back?  Probably not because no one watches VH1 anymore, but new episodes started September 10.  Pretty exciting).

5)  Comprehensive Red Carpet Coverage. Award shows are dabomb.com.  My favorite part is the red carpet.  I love to see what the stars are wearing and what ridiculous questions people like Ryan Seacrest or those weirdos over at Access Hollywood ask them.  Nothing is more entertaining than celebs being put on the spot.  E’s coverage of the red carpet is especially awesome with their creepy Glam Cam and this year’s nauseating Glam Cam 360.  I also love Fashion Police.  Jay Manuel is my favorite fashionista.

Hate:

1)  All things Kardashian. Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe, it doesn’t matter.  I hate them all.  They are famous for no reason and continue to be famous because they orchestrate things like engagements for unnecessary publicity.

2)  The Girls Next Door Season 6 and any future seasons. My heart and loyalty remains with the original three girls next door.  I do not want to know these white trash twins or this Holly-wannabe.  Quit trying to force these newbies on us, E!, no one likes them or wants to like them.

3)  Daily 10. I care not for this recycled E! News that is aired directly following E! News.  They repeat the same information but in a more obnoxious way with over exaggerated delivery and facial expressions.  Oh, I have a good idea E!, let’s take the host from The View that everyone, including Barbara Walters, hated and put her on a show.  That will help your ratings.

4)  So True/So False. This is the most ridiculous segment ever.  They make up celebrity “rumors” tell you that it’s false and then tell you what really happened. Check it out. Here’s an idea, maybe you can just tell us what really happened first instead of making it more dramatic than it already is.

5)  Ryan Seacrest. I probably should have added him to my list of celebrities that I hate while the rest of the world loves.  I was over Ryan Seacrest like ten years ago.  But not, America.  Or entertainment networks.  He’s EVERYWHERE and making a crap-ton of money doing it.  He’s on American Idol, E! News, his stupid radio show, hosting this, hosting that.  Oh wait, it’s not just me.  Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie hate him too.  So there.
