Ryan Seacrest Hopes You’ll Give ‘American Idol’ Another Chance

How do I put this gently? American Idol sucks ass. It has for years and it continues to get worse. Last year, even with Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey on the panel, the show was boring, uncomfortable and deserved to be canceled. Fox hoped that by bringing back Jennifer Lopez for this season, they can pick up in the ratings again, but seriously, people – just let this shit die already. Oh yeah, Harry Connick Jr.‘s on it, too.

Well, the troll that guards the Idol bridge, Ryan Seacrest, really wants you to give the show another shot to, I dunno, be good?

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“I will say this to those who have watched the show throughout the years and maybe they didn’t watch last year. I ask them to come back and give it another shot this year,” Seacrest told The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 concert at Madison Square Garden. “The judges are so fun,  and they are having such a good time and they get along with each other so well that I think you will see your old American Idol back on the air.”

Well… no, I don’t think so. Even X Factor is shit. I think people are just tired of seeing the same old crap on TV all the time. It’s a fixed “competition” wherein the producers decide pretty early on who they want to win. They give the public the illusion of “voting” for their favourites, but we all know if an unpopular contestant – one that they deem unworthy – came out on top, those votes would be fixed. They prey on people with sob stories and it’s all just a mess. Idol has been on for like, 10 years now. It’s done. Say goodbye. Bow out with some small amount of grace.

That being said, I’ll be watching in January… but not because I enjoy it, because I have to live blog it for another job. It’s the bane of my existence.

Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence on Motherhood: “It’s Crazy”

Kim Kardashian has never really been a woman of words – at least not words anyone cared about hearing, that is. Still, she’s remained bizarrely silent since giving birth to America’s Kanye West‘s baby on Saturday nearly 5 weeks ahead of schedule, making everyone that much more hungry for details about the nameless child. Well, you’re not getting any of those, and you’re not even really getting a statement from Kimmypie, but what you will get is a sentence she apparently wrote in an email, as dictated by Ryan Seacrest. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, PEOPLE!

From Ryan’s KIIS-FM show:

E! News’ Ken Baker phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to share that despite giving birth five weeks early, both baby and mom are healthy.

“This was not planned,” he explains. “It came on very quickly and when it was time for the baby to come, it was time for the baby to come.” Ken adds that the moment was so unexpected, “the whole family was [even] dispersed all over the place.”However, Ken confirms: “[The baby] is healthy and Kim is doing well … There’s a great sense of relief. Everyone is very happy for her and Kim is relieved [because] this was a very stressful time.”So now that her daughter is here, how does Kim feel about being a mom?Ryan shared he emailed her moments after she gave birth, saying, “Yay! Congrats my darling, you’re a mommy!” and that she responded: “Cant believe it! It’s so crazy!”

I love that Kim had time to get on email after giving birth. Because, you know, can’t miss those bids pouring in from People and US Weekly – gotta figure out which to sell the kid’s first pictures to, after all.

To be fair, I’m sure motherhood is “crazy”, but she’d better start believing it soon… unless of course the nanny’s are gonna raise this thing, which seems likely. That’s a random nanny, by the way, not The Nanny, Fran Drescher (though how great would that be?). I’ll show myself out.

Kendall Jenner Doesn’t Want to Be a Big Part of the Kardashian Reality Show Empire

She may not get a choice, however. While Kendall and Kylie have always sorta floated along in the background of the Kardashian family’s insane collection of reality shows, she’s pretty okay with it. She still gets all the “opportunities” (as she calls them) associated with fame without having to actually be on camera 24/7 like her sisters. However, producer (LOL) Ryan Seacrest wants her to be a bigger part of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to portray her “coming of age” story. Oh, brother.

From The New York Times:

But in 2011, the network broadcast “Kendall’s Sweet 16,” a special that showed her attending her birthday party and getting her driver’s license. Since then, she has shown up more frequently in the series. “I don’t know any different,” she said of growing up on TV. Still, she added: “I don’t want to be a big part of the show. Neither does my little sister, only because we want for a little while to keep our somewhat normal lives.”

In a 2011 episode called “Kim Becomes a Stage Mom,” Ms. Jenner headed to New York for a gig modeling prom dresses, only to storm out of a runway coaching session after her half-sister pushed too hard. “I was just like, I don’t know,” Ms. Jenner said, explaining her behavior. “My sister was being kind of annoying, and I was just overwhelmed.”

Among other things, she had been concerned about missing cheerleading practice. Both Jenner sisters have since left Sierra Canyon; at their request, they’re now home-schooled to allow them more time to focus on careers. “It’s fun,” Ms. Jenner said. “There’s so many just crazy opportunities. That’s the upside.”

I actually remember that episode well – Kim was really pushing Kendall into the famewhore lifestyle. Kendall was being a brat, sure, but is there anything wrong with saying you don’t want to follow in crybaby Kim’s footsteps? I don’t think so.

Here’s what Ryan Seacrest had to say about changing things up:

“The original concept was the three primary sisters, but one of the things that we’ve noticed is the viewers have connected with Kendall growing up,” he said. “A coming of age story is always compelling.”

Stop the madness! In any case, Kendall is a pain in the ass. She wants all the benefits of fame without the “work”, and her claiming that she isn’t really into fame is just bullshit. If it weren’t for your family’s fame, you’d be just another California girl working a barista job at Starbucks inbetween desperately going for modeling auditions. Chill.
