There has been a lot of media coverage about Paula Abdul’s contract negotiations for the next season of American Idol. She’s even Tweeting about how no deal has been reached. I suspect that there will be a last minute, hail Mary type deal which will ensure at least one more year of Paula “I Swear There’s Just Water In My Product Placement Coca-Cola Glass” Abdul. But if it doesn’t pan out the way I and millions of others hope that it will, I think Jimmy Kimmel has a brilliant idea.
On the opening monologue of last night’s show, Kimmel proposed a new game show vehicle for Paula, called What the Fuck is Paula Abdul Talking About? It was an idea that started out as a joke, but I would actually totally watch that. Paula, if the money is there, I say “Go for it!”
Stay tuned to the end of the clip, where Ryan Seacrest briefly appears with a seemingly afro’d child on a spoof promo for Are you Tanner Than A 5th Grader. Offensive?
I’m completely obsessed with this interview Jamie-Lynn Sigler did on Jimmy Kimmel this week. First off, I’m blown away that she’s still dating Jerry Ferrara. Don’t get me wrong, Jerry seems like a cool guy, but he’s a far cry in the looks department from AJ DiScala or Scott Sartiano. But I guess it didn’t work out with those guys, so she’s trying something different? Whatever makes you happy.
Jamie also dishes about her addiction to Tiger Woods Golf on Xbox, which I find hilarious. She says she plays up to four hours a day, and spends the whole time thinking about things she should be doing. I guess Jerry also has his friends in Brooklyn spying on her on there, so he always knows when she’s wasting a day on Tiger Woods. This is especially amusing to me, because back in LA I dated a guy who did the exact same thing. We’d make plans for the night, and I’d come over at the appointed time, and he would not only not be ready to go out, he’d be stoned and on hour six of a Tiger Woods game. That stuff is like crack.
I’m taking thirty seconds off from my disdain for Jimmy Kimmel, because he was actually sort of amusing, and willing to admit to being the douche that he is, on The View today. Jimmy recently broke up with his awesome on-again-off-again girlfriend, Sarah Silverman, and dressing up like Rosie O’Donnell didn’t keep the nosy ladies of The View from grilling him about it. When they asked him what happened, Jimmy responded: I’m a 41-year-old man with a bra filled with Koosh balls. What do you think happened? I’m an imbecile and she couldn’t date an imbecile anymore.”
Poor Sarah. First her show budget gets crapped on, and now, this.
Despite a reconciliation that gave them both cause for laughs, late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, 41, and comedian Sarah Silverman, 38, have split.
No reason was revealed for their second breakup. The funny duo dated for five years before they called it quits last July. But they rekindled their relationship just a few months later. “They’re taking it slow,” a source told PEOPLE last fall. “They’re on the road back to being together.”
For my own selfish reasons, I hope there’s another Matt Damon collab in the works but those kinds of things really only happen once in a lifetime.
