But don’t worry, it’s going to be nothing but class.
“It won’t be the Jersey Shore. It’s more of an episodic documentary. We’re trying to invent something you haven’t seen before that follows a bunch of people in this crazy little subculture.”
What subculture is she talking about, you may ask. And the answer is “ping-pong.” Because apparently there’s a ping-pong subculture, and Susan Sarandon is really into it. Who knew?
Susan is an investor in a ping-pong nightclub, SPiN, and she calls herself the “Johnny Appleseed of ping-pong.” She wants to showcase the growth of the club and the ping-pong players that frequent it, a few of which she believes will make it to the Olympics.
As for when to be expecting this show, Susan doesn’t know that. She’s unsure what network the show should be on because she wants the show to be “quite different than anything else that anybody’s seen before.”
I had no idea ping-pong was this big of a deal. When I first heard the story, I thought it made sense, but then I realized I was thinking of beer pong, not ping-pong, so I went right back to square one. And believe me, I love me some Susan Sarandon, but I don’t see me ever watching a show about a ping-pong nightclub. What about you guys?

I chose this story just because I wanted to write that headline.
Susan went to The Box in New York to celebrate the burlesque club’s third anniversary and was vomited on by transvestite performer Rose Wood while Wood was on stage.
“She actually handled it very well,” a source said. “She was laughing while a bunch of guys came over to towel her off.”
Chances are the performer won’t handle it as well. From here on out, she’ll probably be known as “the one that vomited on Susan Sarandon.”
I don’t know if this is really “news”, but other websites have decided it is, so I’m just regurgitating it for you because it’s the perfect example of how ridiculous celebrity gossip can get.
Does it really matter if Susan Sarandon got barfed on by a tranny? I guess it does, because I find it very funny in that “life is utterly ridiculous and anything can happen” sort of way.

Talk about media pros!
After 23 years together, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins — the original Ashton and Demi — broke up this summer. Their rep issued the following statement today:
“Actress Susan Sarandon and her partner of 23 years, actor Tim Robbins have announced that they separated over the summer. No further comments will be made.”
I wonder if they discussed this during their summer break-up. Like, “This sucks, but let’s wait until it’s basically Christmas Eve to announce it so it’s not a media firestorm.” That’s how you do it when you’ve been around the block a few times, I guess.
The couple have two sons together, Jack, 20, and Miles, 17.
I’m genuinely sorry to hear of their split, but, to be fair, they made it way longer than most married couples. That was an impressive run, you two! You should be proud of yourselves. The pic above is of the twosome at the 1989 Golden Globes.

Does anyone watch ER anymore? I’m happy this is the last season, but that show really should have ended, like, ten years ago. How many fires, earthquakes, bombs, falling out of the sky helicopters, limbs lost, addictions fought and people resurrected from the dead should one audience be expected to tolerate? County General Hospital should have been shut down about fifteen hundred cataclysmic disasters ago. That show fucking exhausts me.
ER is credited as the show that gave George Clooney his break. To me, he will always be George the handyman at the Over Our Heads novelty shop, on The Facts of Life. Longtime fans have been hopeful that Clooney would return for the final season, and it looks like they are getting their wish. Also appearing for the George episode was Susan Sarandon. Not sure how she fits into the storyline, but don’t be surprised if her character suffers a fatal implant explosion.
