Keri Russell was robbed. Of a career! (Baddum-bum-tiss!) No but seriously, folks, she was robbed and it sounds terrifying. People snuck into her Brooklyn apartment while she was sleeping and stole her stuff. From People:
“The break-in did happen,” the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is fine, and Keri sends her thanks to the police.”
A laptop, jewelry said to be earrings and a purse were taken around 3 a.m. Wednesday, reports the Associated Press. Although asleep at the time, Russell, 37, awoke to hear footsteps and voices in the apartment, then she called 911.
While Russell never saw the intruders, police said afterwards that she found a window and front door open and her items missing.
Nearby, a 70-year-old neighbor awoke to find a burglar inside and called 911 with a description, according to AP. After canvassing the area, reports New York’s Daily News, police found and arrested an alleged uncle-nephew cat burglar team, as well as recovered some of Russell’s stolen property.
Poor Ms. Russell. All she’s doing is chilling out, living her normal life, getting her stuff stolen in the dead of night while she’s inside the place. Does this not freak anyone else out?
Unrelated note: the older Keri Russell gets, the more I see Aunt Becky from Full House.
Perez Hilton is THE WORST. Everyone knows it, and yet someone at The Real World’s production company, Bunim-Murray, decided it would be a great idea to give him a reality show called Gay Dads of New York. WHYYYYYYY? The show will follow his life and other single/married gay dads in the city as they live their lives. Yes, absolutely fascinating. Keep in mind that no network has bought this piece of shit yet, but Perez thinks it’ll be all about “love, humour and drama”. Fuck off.
Here’s his statement:
“What will it not be? Trashy or boring. Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the ‘real’ Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system.
“I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to – hopefully – love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!”
They’re casting for the show now. Please let someone stomp this out before it ever truly sees the light of day.
Listen, Sex and the City was a great show in its time! It was fantastic, even, and it holds up really well. I could pop in a DVD right now and still enjoy it very much. The first movie was a bit meh, but it was excusable. And it should have ended there, but it didn’t. Then a really bizarrely racist and just terribly written Sex and the City 2 came out and it was like, eh? What is going on? But then surely THAT was the end of it?
I’m afraid some people still think Sex and the City 3 could still be in the cards, and one of those people is none other than Charlotte herself, Kristin Davis. No. Y’all are in your 40s or above now and are all living your lives (the characters, I’m talking about) and no one needs to see you anymore. Your stories are done. What the hell ever happened to going out on a high note?
“I don’t think [a third film] is a pipe dream, there is discussion.
“People talk about it amongst the people who are the players, but I don’t know if it will come together. It would be very exciting if it did. I’m going to have a little talk with Cynthia the next time I see her!”
Let’s keep it at discussion level, Kristin. Oh, and side note: Kristin Davis looks as good now as she did 10 years ago!
Simon Cowell isn’t really concerned with much in life besides money and how much of it he can make and, I suppose, now his love child with his soon-to-be shotgun wife. That being said, I’m not really surprised that he doesn’t “get” Russell Brand‘s political passion and call for change and that he thinks the best way for Russell to fight “the man” is to give back all his money. Uh…….
Here’s what Cowell told Shortlist magazine:
“A revolution? He’s getting $10 million per movie. I mean, come on! Well, give your money back then, Russell.
“I always say that about people. Start off as you mean to go on. Donate all the money back to the revolution and then I’ll believe it. I’m living in a 10 million dollar mansion and I want a revolution? Give me a break.”
I sort get the point he’s TRYING to make, but I just don’t think it holds water. Here’s the thing: as Russell himself has pointed out, no one listens to the poor people. That’s the people he’s fighting for, and he’s doing it because while they’re fighting for themselves, it’s easy to shush people up who have no power. He’s using his platform – which, yes, comes with money – in order to try and MAKE the authorities listen. He’s much more visible than your average joe who works at a sanitation plant down the street.
Second of all, last I checked, Simon Cowell doesn’t have access to Russell’s personal accounts and therefore has no idea what kind of donations he makes or how much money he gives away to whatever cause. Saying that someone’s feelings are invalid because of how much money they have is absolutely ridiculous, so Simon Cowell needs to shut the fuck up.
Also, I’m shocked that I’m defending Russell Brand when I don’t even really like the guy very much, but I just feel like it was called for here. Oh, and below is the Newsnight interview Russell did that really kicked all this off – it’s well worth the watch.
