Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin says her children are crying over the loss of their ‘buddies’ from the TLC film crew. In an interview with Barbara Walters for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009Â special, Kate Gosselin said her children miss the film crew that used to be so much a part of their daily lives.
“They cried in the van on the way home from school the other day,” Kate Gosselin tells Barbara Walters in the interview. “I finally admitted to them, they kept asking, ‘Where’s the camera crew? Where’s the camera crew? We miss them.’ And I said, ‘Our show is over.’ …Eight sobbing kids driving home from school.”
TLC had initially planned to remake Jon & Kate Plus 8 without Jon Gosselin following the couple’s very public separation. The reality TV dad, however, forbade TLC from continuing to film his children, effectively ending their time as mini-TV stars.
While Jon Gosselin continues to flounder around trying to find a new way to capitalize on his waning 15 minutes of fame, Kate Gosselin is set to start co-hosting a new talk show next spring, according to ABCNews.com.
The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009 airs Wednesday night at 10 PM. Other famous names scheduled to be featured include Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, Brett Favre and Glenn Beck.
We’ve learned several new unflattering terms this morning and it’s all because of Current TV and their apparent dislike of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. In a cartoon called “The Stupid Virus,” aired on Al Gore‘s Current TV, Sarah Palin is referred two as both a TWILF and a ‘Gun-Ho’. We admit, we had no idea what either one of those labels meant, so of course we had to go look them up.
There are actually several definitions listed on UrbanDictionary.com for the term ‘TWILF’ – so we picked our favorite: “One who farts in the bathtub and bites the bubbles.” Now THAT is quite an insult. Although it could also just be a twist on a MILF who uses Twitter. The term ‘Gun-Ho’ was shown as Sarah Palin’s username on a fake Twitter page shown by the cartoon. We didn’t find any definition out there for that one, but it’s not hard to interpret the meaning.
The whole cartoon was basically one big slam of prominent conservatives, which isn’t all that surprising considering the liberal reputation of the network. Parody and sarcasm are often entertaining no matter what side of the conservative/liberal fence you’re on, but this bit of video did seem rather over-the-top nasty.
Last night on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin‘s farewell speech was the subject of an amusing tribute by none other than the infamous William Shatner.
Whether you’re a Sarah Palin fan or not, theÂ William Shatner Sarah Palin farewell video is a golden bit of political satire to love or hate. We share it with you here:
And no, Shatner is not taking liberties with the text in his poetic, beatnik rendition. Kudos to staying true to Palin’s words and letting them speak for themselves. You can check out the original here.
John Chu, ACDC member (not the band, grampaw!) who brought us Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux’s WAY popular Youtube danceoffs, has created a new way to solve the world’s problems. Dance ’em away! Seriously, John’s created a fun new site that’s become wildly popular…people send in their dance videos where they are dancing for their candidate of choice! The Palinistas are here too! The winner of the danceoff will be announced on Election Day, November 4th. To submit a video, visit ibeatyou.com. Don’t forget to vote, unless you’re uninformed. If you are, good news! You can stay home! Party time!!
Will Ferrell made a President Bush cameo on SNL last night for “Update Thursday”, and he gave John McCain and Sarah Palin his endorsement! John tried to get away, to no avail. Tina Fey as Sarah had to straighten the President out about the role of the VP!
Lindsay Lohan announced she’s gonna be Sarah Palin on Halloween. Yawn. In Hollywood, she’ll be bumping into herself EVERYWHERE. Britney Spears has a more original idea…but it’s NOT a good one!
Britney wants to go as herself… back when she was in full meltdown. Shaved head and all. She wants “to remind people how far she’s come.” Don’t do it, Brit! Looking at the pics is bad enough, and we’ve all just been able to get the bad flashbacks out of our minds. You DON’T want to remind everyone of the crazy-days. You just don’t. Yes, it would be the scariest costume around. But all you’ll accomplish is scaring some kids out of their candy, and making the papz cry for the good old days.
And speaking of kids…you REALLY don’t want SP and JJ seeing THAT horrifying image again? The little dudes are gonna need therapy anyways, but don’t pile on! The press will go more batshit crazy than you did at the time. Seriously, what about going as Lindsay Lohan? All you have to do is put on some socks, spray on some fake tanner, take OFF the socks, put on a mini-dress and heels, and…presto! Instant Lohan! No baldness necessary. Just think about it, okay?
Yep, I said it. (Sorry if you choked on your morning coffee.) Too many of my fellow media purveyors won’t (or can’t) go there. I hate the “C” word with a passion. Apparently, however, Sarah Palin’s protesters love it. Here are the pictures from the Philadelphia protest the other day against Palin that the mainstream media won’t fully show you, and I’m NOT blacking anything out. I SERIOUSLY doubt if Hillary Clinton had been a nominee that you’d be seeing any crap like this. This shizz has got to stop.
McCain has repeatedly had the guts NOT to take the bait from some of his angry supporters when he could have gotten down in the dirt about Obama. Instead, he called him a decent, family man, with whom he differs. He defended Obama against some of the questioners in his audiences.
Obama, however, has not denounced any of THESE stunts, which are sadly quite common. Aren’t we better than this? All I’ve seen from McCain rallies are people in goofy hats, or dressed in every variation of an American flag, or wearing a shirt picturing a pig wearing lipstick.
Yes, people are angry on both sides of this extremely important decision. But if a McCain supporter is going to be called a racist for his or her vote, that doesn’t help our country. If an Obama supporter is going to be classified as a friend of terrorists, that doesn’t help our country. If we don’t get it together pretty damn fast, we are going to have serious problems AS a country after the election. Our country has enough on it’s freaking plate as it is. We have to live together after this is over. Grow up, people.
