Trump's New Reality Show Is The Worst.
Huffington Post - 20 days
This post originally appeared on fortheloveofwineandcoffee.com I must confess -- I love reality TV. It's like junk food for the brain. When life gets too heavy, you've had a rough day and you just want to tune out, reality TV provides the perfect escape. I was really looking forward to the new show from Donald Trump (of The Apprentice, the Celebrity Apprentice and WWE fame), but it's just awful. In previous seasons, there was always a villain shaking things up and providing a bit of drama. But almost everyone on this show is a villain! It's hard to root for someone when they're all despicable. The producers really took things up a notch. For example during a previous Celebrity Apprentice episode, super villain Omarosa poured a glass of wine over Piers Morgan's head. That was the old standard in reality TV drama. This season, the super villain is this disheveled looking guy who has a quite passionate fan base and allegedly doesn't like Jews. Whoa! Too far! I like my reality TV w ...

Octavia Spencer Says 'Less Underwear' Is The Key To A Fun Red Carpet
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Octavia Spencer knows how to make the Golden Globes even more fun: a sharp tuxedo and not a whole lot of underwear.  The “Hidden Figures” actress appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday and spoke to the talk show host about her outfit ― and the lack of shape-wear beneath it.  “I don’t think I’ve ever been to an awards show and had as much fun as I did this past time. I chose to wear a tuxedo and in doing that, I was able to be freer,” Spencer said while making a funny face, drawing laughs from the audience. “Less underwear. A lot less underwear.” The actress said that everyone told her she looked “radiant,” which they assumed was because of her movie dominating the box office and overtaking “Rogue One” for the top spot. Not so, said Spencer, again crediting her lack of undergarments and the menswear-inspired outfit she wore.  “More women need to say, ‘You know what? We’re going to wear the pantsuit,” she said. Fellow Golden Globes attend ...

Mariah Carey Reprimands Ryan Seacrest Before Her Awkward Performance
Huffington Post - about 2 months
What happened? Times square party goers and viewers anticipated Mariah Carey's New Year's performance on ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2017" but were left a little perplexed as she stopped singing in the middle of her song, "Emotions." She seemed not to be able to hear the music in her earpiece but refused to even attempt singing her own song. As her dancers continued their routine she told the audience to sing. Mimi's displeasure with the production was apparent even before she took to the stage. The always professional host of NYRE, Ryan Seacrest, made an apparent faux pas when he referred to her reality show, Mariah's World, as well, a reality show. "Congratulations on your reality show," Ryan offered. Mariah seemed to reprimand Ryan on live television, "Ah, I just told you that we don't like to call it that but that's o.k." "What do we want to call it?" "I didn't name it Mariah's world," Carey offers without further explanation. R ...

Trump lacks preparation, temperament to be President: Obama
Yahoo News - 5 months
Washington, Sep 28 (IANS) US President Barack Obama repeated on Tuesday that the Republican candidate for the White House, Donald Trump, lacks the temperament and preparation necessary to occupy the Oval Office, in his first reaction to the televised debate on Monday night between the real estate magnate and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. "Anybody who was watching the debate, I think got a sense that you got really sharply-contrasting visions about where we should take the country," EFE news quoted Obama as saying in a radio interview on the Ryan Seacrest show. Obama said he was "admittedly biased" in favour of Clinton, whom he said is "well-prepared" and has the "right temperament for the job" of President, as well as being highly respected by everyone.
