It’s been a while since we’ve had a best and worst celebrity looks of the week, so here we go. This is from the last week of October. I chose Kelly Osbourne for best celebrity dressing up as another celebrity. That’s her above as Christina Hendricks. Pretty dead-on.
I promise not to overdo it on the Halloween costumes.
Martha Stewart, former criminal (anyone think back on how weird it is that she actually went to jail?) is going to look for love on Match.com — but under a fake name. In an interview on The Today Show with Matt Lauer and chief executive of Match.com Sam Yagan, Lauer asked if she would consider marrying again. Ms. Stewart paused and said, “depends.” When asked what she was looking for on Match Stewart said,
I’d like to have breakfast with somebody. I’d like to go to bed with somebody. You know, sleep with somebody.
They then cut to Lauer, who looked shocked.
The Daily Mail provides more quotes from the Interview. Mr. Yagan, again the chief executive of Match.com, told her,
I think finding a soulmate for you might be a little bit difficult, but I think first dates are easily doable.
Wow, way to rep your site and TOTALLY SAY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT ALL OF YOUR COMMERCIALS CLAIM. You know the Match.com commercials: “This will be ~~an everlasting love~~” plays while actors couples smile and hold each other and babble things like, “I can’t believe I found my soulmate on a dating site!”
Stewart’s first Match attempt didn’t end well — because she couldn’t even finisht he application.
I tried filling out the application . . . but I started to laugh halfway down the page – it was, like, impossible!
Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Just yesterday, I told you all that Lindsay Lohan was going to be on The Today Show this week. Remember that? And we all got excited that Lindsay might finally be pulling it together, and we held hands in a circle and sent positive vibes her way? Yeah, you remember. The interview was actually done yesterday, and guess what! We have excerpts!
There was a time when we talked last time, where I think you didn’t want to talk about a lot of things. Because I think, and correct me if I’m wrong, there was a little denial going on.
Definitely. And I think it was– it’s a scary thing to have to kind of express to people. I don’t think I was– I wasn’t as comfortable with myself then. And yeah, definitely, though. I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wakeup call.
Can you go to the night life? Can you go to parties? Can you go to clubs without suffering the temptation that’s going to get you into trouble?
Remember this little gem? Kanye’s infamous “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” announcement? All right, now remember 9/11? Yes? And that whole War on Terror thing? And the actual Hurricane Katrina, not just Kanye’s comments on how Bush handled it? Ok, now that you have those things in your head, guess which one George Bush considers the worst moment of his presidency.
Matt Lauer interviewed Bush about the former president’s upcoming book, Decision Points (both of which you can check out next week), and Matt had some questions about what Bush wrote about the Kanye comment, which was that “the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all-time low.” Bush got upset all over again, and Matt decided to push it:
Lauer: “You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your presidency?”
Bush: “Yes. My record was strong, I felt, when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.”
Lauer: “I wonder if some people are going to read that, now that you’ve written it, and they might give you some heat for that. And the reason is this — “
Bush [interrupting]: “Don’t care.”
Lauer: “Well, here’s the reason. You’re not saying that the worst moment in your presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that.”
Bush: “No, and I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
One of my nieces used to be an absolute demon. She wouldn’t listen to anyone, she liked to pull hair and pinch and say mean things. But after a while of this, she’d always get to the point where she was just spinning, like she was just sputtering out nonsense, and that’s when I’d pick her up and put her on my lap, and I’d say “it’s ok, honey, it’s ok, just go to sleep.” And that’s exactly what this interview makes me want to do to George Bush. The man is sputtering out nonsense, and somebody needs to rock him to sleep.
I hope you’re all getting into some debauchery tonight. Like I said earlier, it’s the one night of the year when you can dress like a slut, a freak, or a creep, and people won’t think you’re insane or hold you accountable. It’s just like living in Hollywood.
Celebs are taking advantage of the same opportunity. Katie Couric was spotted sporting this year’s ubiquitous Kate Gosselin costume while the hosts of the Today Show went the Luke & Leia route. Fashion designer Michael Kors dressed in a detailed hippie costume while designer Valentino (above) dressed up as an Oompah Loompah. Oh wait… that’s not a costume.
Would someone please tell me what the hell Martha Stewart and Mickey Rourke are supposed to be? I tried to figure out their costumes, but the best I could come up with was “tree trunk” and “Mickey Rourke.”
People reports that Today show host Matt Lauer had a little run-in this weekend with a deer. Apparently Matt was riding his Schwinn, I don’t really know that he was riding a Schwinn but it sounds like “schwing” and I always feel that when Matt is around, and hit a deer.
Where in the world was Matt Lauer on Monday? Not on the Today show, due to a weekend incident as he was riding his bicycle, according to his NBC cohort Meredith Vieira.
Lauer encountered a deer while he was on the road, said Vieria, who wasn’t quite clear about whether or not Lauer and the animal smacked into one another. She seemed to doubt it.
Lauer, she informed viewers, “thinks the deer was hired by the competition.” Not true, Vieira insisted. “I hired the deer, but I said, ‘Just graze him.’ “
No real word on his injuries; I’ve been reading that he flipped over the handlebars of his bike. Here’s hoping that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can put him back together again. Oh, dear.
