Why yes, Jon Hamm, I will run away with you to a small remote island where we're forced to be sans clothing all the time. I will bare you lots and lots of babies and wait on you hand and foot and we will most certainly live happily ever after and no one will ever hear from us again because we'll be living in bliss. Oh, wait. That might cut into your Mad Men schedule and then I wouldn't get to watch Don Draper anymore. Nevermind. Please resume your regular life of being too beautiful to live and making my heart smile.
Long before he was Chuck, I loved watching Zachary Levi on the cute little sitcom Less Than Perfect. He was perfectly snarky and fun to watch. Oh, and did I mention hot? Since I've been in LA I feel like I've missed seeing him at approximately 2,987 events, so I was thrilled to finally get to see and meet him the other day. He was awesome.
In a trying-to-be-positive spin, instead of saying "Things I Hate" I've decided to list a few things that make my eyes bleed and my skin crawl. As if the sheets weren't enough, now they're manufacturing Barbie dolls made out of that annoying teenager?!?! Gah.
Really, Brad? Will you? THIS time you'll find a wife? How about dating in the real world like the rest of us and stop wasting our time. Nice shirtless shot, though. Yesterday I finally met Edward Norton in person. I. Was. Thrilled. I love him so much - he blew my mind in Primal Fear and everything else he's ever been on he's knocked out of the park. You might have noticed there isn't a picture of Edward listed on here. Why's that, you ask? Because he "doesn't do that." Um, what? Is he in cahoots with Sandra Oh? Doesn't do that? Sweetie, you're in the entertainment industry. If cameras weren't your thing (or pleasing your fans for that matter), perhaps you should've gone into another line of work. Yes, I know it's annoying and I'm sure you get asked all the time and had you not been promoting your film I wouldn't have cared about the shoot down. But, really. "I don't do that?" Come on. At least come up with something a little more believable.
Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. When did Jude Law officially become a pimp?
I love Olivia Wilde, but why does it look like she's playing dress up?
Last night it was announced that Brad Womack, who famously selected NO ONE on his season of The Bachelor, will once again, be the new Bachelor. Um, what now? Are you freaking kidding me? While it's true that I enjoyed his season up to the point of picking no one and think he's incredibly sexy, I don't see myself getting on board with this decision. Ever. First of all, he had his chance and he blew it. Second of all, not only was he closed off at the end, but he's blown off the show since his season aired. He didn't do interviews, wasn't in any reunion shows, and didn't ever comment on anything. He distanced himself so far from the show it was like he was trying to convince himself that he was ever a part of it. Finally, aren't there other people out there who'd like a chance? Why do we need to suffer through more of the same? While they're at it, will DeAnna be one of the girls? All I know for sure is this: The Bachelor has lost a fan. For good. I will not be watching this season yet again. I'm done. We're breaking up, Bach. I don't want to stay friends.
The one good thing to come from waiting for Dane the Douche today was that Maroon 5 was also on the same program and they know how to treat their fans. Score! I'd been wanting to get a picture with Adam Levine (the lead singer) ever since he posed with some friends of mine and today I finally got my chance. My fave part about the pic? His hand on my shoulder. Swoon! Adam was so awesome. His manager or PR person was trying to rush him through the line and finally Adam turned around and said, "You're killing me, man. Enough." You go, Adam! I've gotta admit - I may have fallen in love with him just a teeny weeny bit.
I'd like to tell you that my entire day wasn't wasted by waiting that douchebag-that-I-sadly-love, Dane Cook. Unfortunately, that would be a lie, as I spent not one, not two, but almost FIVE hours waiting (don't judge me) for that pain-in-the-ass who's awful to his fans (or at least his fans whenever I'm around - everyone else says he's great. Well, almost everyone). If I cared more (OK, I care, I'm just too annoyed to put more effort into this) I'd write him yet ANOTHER open letter (because apparently the first one did wonders for his shitty attitude), but instead I'm going to bitch and moan in a post and lament the fact that Dane's a jerk to me. It's sad because most of the word on the street says he's not, he loves his fans, he does stuff all the time, blah blah blah. But so far in my two miniscule experiences with him he's not been as cool as he appears to be on Tourgasm or any other show I've watched him on (because I really am a huge fan despite my bad experiences). Shame on you, Dane. Shame on you for making your fans wait and not being the slightest bit grateful. It's not like there were 100 of us; there were like 10. Fail.
Hello and welcome to Thursday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. Yum. How YOU doin', Becks?I'm sure Lenny Kravitz *thought* he was being stylish by tucking his black leather pants into his black leather pants, but unfortunately all this did was turn his outfit into a dress with pumps. Fail.Did Miranda Richardson take off someone's pilgrim hat and decide to wear it as a pin?Can someone please remind Miley that a) She's a role model for young girls everywhere and should therefore attempt to hide her bra? and b) Wearing cowboy boots is not going to make this fashion faus pax forgivable.Pete Wentz's shirt oh-so-cleverly reads: "Leave me alone." No problem, nobody. But remember when you're all washed up that this was due to your request.

As I was sitting here bemoaning my fate and wondering what I'd be up to if I were back in Utah slagging away at work, it occured to me that it's Christmas card time in the land of Pink. You know what that means....time to vote! I found this super cute pink card, but couldn't figure out how to upload my pics (the website was being wonky). The second one isn't too bad...is the catchphrase lame? I have no idea what pictures even to use....the list is endless! I could have worse problems, right? :)Now, why the 2009 is still in the corner is anyone's guess. Are you shocked to see Bradley Cooper? You really shouldn't be. I'd like to put Sam Trammell on, as well, but I'm afraid no one knows who he is except me and the rabid True Blood fans. Then again, it is my card, right? Where's Ricky Schroder when you need another good pic? Or Nic? Or Benicio? Any of my Top Three will do.
Just think - a few mere weeks ago, I'd only met one cast member from my beloved Queer as Folk and now (happy days!) I've met a total of three. Now, don't get me wrong, I love Hal Sparks in theory - he's a really funny stand-up comedian and did a great job on the show. But I HATED his character on QAF for always whining and being a baby. So, when I met him he was saying it was kinda awkward to see a fan who'd seen him naked.....My response? "Oh, I was all about Brian Kinney, so I don't even remember seeing you naked." Nice way to kick him in the stomach a little. Sheesh. What the hell is wrong with me??? I hope his self-esteem is still intact.
So, Neverending Boyfriend posted this picture of himself on FB today. Um, was he trying to tell me something? A pink wig? Really? And I'm NOT supposed to take that personally? Yeah, too bad all it did was make me want to see him. Don't worry, I'm not doing anything rash...I do have some standards (*cough* Andy Dick *cough*)...I think....well, I used to at least. :)
Hello and welcome to the early Wednesday edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.I think Jennifer Garner stole way too many items from her wardrobe in 13 Going On 30. Those were costumes, Jen. NOT TO BE WORN OUTSIDE, m'kay?
I'm starting to think Mischa Barton is just messing with us now. There's no way she actually thinks this looks good.Speaking of messing with us. Blue eyeshadow? Foo foo dress? Was she playing dress up with her daughter and forgot she had an event to attend?Oh, goodie. Even more dress up. Now, I understand Jada and Willow were going to Fashion Week and probably wanted to step up their game. But did they get dressed in the dark?Somewhere in Florida, someone's beloved, aging "Bubby" is naked.

Dear George Lopez, I just wanted to thank you for being SO extremely cool and nice tonight. I realize I was taking a big chance by approaching you long after our picture was taken to pass you my information and "pitch" you on my being Pinky Lovejoy on the Spot for your show, but it felt like the time and place to do it. Plus, I didn't really foresee ever having the opportunity to do so again, so I jumped at the chance. Thank you for not making me feel like an idiot. I'm sure you get that kind of thing done all the time, but you didn't make me feel like I'd done something stupid at all. In fact, you told me you "liked it" which made me happy. Sure, the chances of something actually arising from said transaction are slim to none, but I still appreciate the opportunity to give you my information and taking a chance on what might be. I've always wanted to meet you and you certainly didn't disappoint my expectations in the slightest. Thanks again for being cool. You rock. Appreciatively, Pinky Lovejoy
