Friday newsflash!

Happy Friday! I need this weekend more than ever! 1. Sandra Bullock adopted a precious baby! The baby boy, named Louis, is from New Orleans and has been in her home since January! Her and stupidface Jesse James began the adoption process together years ago, and decided to keep things under wraps until after the Oscars. Now that her idiot ex husband is out of the picture, she's going to raise the little handsome guy by herself. She also plans to continue being a stepmom to Jesse's kids. Hi, she's almost to sweet for me to like her. Almost. 2. Arizona immigration reform = huge mess. The state of Arizona has passed a law that allows police to ask anyone they even suspect of being an illegal immigrant to show their "papers" at any time. Racial profiling much? I agree that border control is an issue, but this seems pretty much as anti- "America-the-land-of-the-free" as you can get. What if you walk down the block to your friend's house without your wallet? Grounds for arrest if they think you could have snuck into America. WTF? Shakira, who I could have been in a past life, has joined the fight. AMEN. People are up in arms all over the country, even going so far as to boycott Arizona tea beverages (which are actually made in New Jersey). Whole cities have boycotted the entire state (I don't really get that) and Al Sharpton is in the mix (yikes!). I hope they repeal it and think of a better idea. Don't ask me what that is, I just write a nonsensical blog for a hobby. 3. Jessica Simpson has a dirty mouth. Literally. She admitted on the Ellen Degeneres show that she only brushes her teeth "maybe three times a week" because they're so white that when they're clean they are too slippery. WTF? Also she prefers to use a "shirt or something" to clean them when she actually does it. (Insert obligatory "maybe this is why she can't get a boyfriend" comment here.) Gross. Gross. Gross. I just can't root for her. She's a major idiot. Wait, remind me why she's famous anymore? I wonder if she was on this regime when John Mayer referred to her as "sexual napalm." Ick. They deserve each other. 4. Last week there was a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and it may reach land today! This is a terrible thing. They think the spill covers 600 square miles of ocean. The spill was caused by an explosion on an offshore BP oil rig. 11 men have gone missing and this massive spill is seriously threatening to eff stuff up. This is a mostly a major environmental issue, but also has serious political and economic impact. YIKES! It breaks my heart. I saw this commercial yesterday and it was cute, but sad: They better get lots of Dawn up in there. Looks like they may be needing it. Go buy some! 5. Quote(s) of the week:
"It's a wonderful number. We had a blast. It's rock and roll. ... And I just got a whole new knee, so I can promise you everything is moving!" Liza Minnelli on her musical performance in Sex and the City 2
Ok, enough is enough. I love SATC, but come on, knee replacements? These women are too old to be making these movies. I thought the menopause talk in the last move was pushing it. I'll obviously still be seeing it opening weekend. Sidenote: she'll be singer a cover of Single Ladies in the movie. That's reason enough to see it..
"I'd be perfectly fine if I never saw the color pink again." Molly Ringwald
This sent me into a fit of rage. I love the brat pack and all their 80's cinematic glory. ESPECIALLY PRETTY IN PINK. I hate when people bite the hand that feeds them (I'm talking to you, Kristen Stewart). The topic of the article was to name 25 things about herself we might not know. She just HAD to insert a "look at me I have this whole other successful life" comment. 6. Kate Hudson got a boob job. She debuted them on the red carpet this week but wore a full-coverage dress. (Huh?) I'm sort of disappointed in her. While she remains a flooze-tastic and philandering idiot when it comes to dating, she wore her 12-year old girl bust proudly. I always gave her a little bit of credit for never getting on the plastic surgery bandwagon. Guess that's over. On a related note, Spencer Pratt clearly disapproves of her not getting mega-breasts. I'm so glad he's chiming in. 7. Bret Michaels is in the hospital in serious condition. He's suffered a brain hemorrhage and remains in ICU. He's been in the hospital a week now and is responding well to treatment, but this situation is no joke. I hope he gets better soon. I'm right on the verge of writing off VH1 programming altogether and I'm going to need him around if they want to keep me as a viewer. I wonder if anybody saw what's under his bandanna. I suspect is a balding middle-aged man's head. In all seriousness, I pray for his recovery. 8. The economy may not totally suck any more. *May not. Economists are reporting the third straight quarter of GDP growth! Yay! They think that this means the recession was officially over sometime in the middle of last year. Funny, it still feel like everyone's broke to me. Anyway, this is good news and the glimmer of hope that we'll all be fat and happy again is a bit brighter. Have a great weekend. Stay tuned tomorrow for a wrap up of my April Resolutions!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
