Thank you for being a friend!

I have been singing The Golden Girls theme song ALL day so I thought I would post it on my blog so I could stop having to go to You Tube to listen to it.


New American Idol judges finally announced

After months of speculation, American Idol finally announced today that joining Randy Jackson at the judges’ table this season will be Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler.  When Idol debuts its 10th season in January 2011, Randy will be the only original judge remaining.  

I am dying to know if you are going to tune in for the new season or do you think Simon Cowell is irreplaceable. I don’t think anyone could ever replace Simon’s black t-shirt but I applaud Fox for giving  J.Lo and Tyler a shot. Both of them are more interesting to me than Kara DioGuardi.

I haven’t decided if I am going to tune in yet. Weigh in…who’s gonna watch?


First Simon now Ellen. Should American Idol call it quits?

American Idol is now down two judges after Ellen DeGeneres announced yesterday she would not be returning to the hit Fox show. “A couple months ago, I let FOX and the ‘American Idol’ producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” Ellen said in a statement issued to Access Hollywood yesterday.  Simon Cowell, who announced last season that he was not returning, has yet to be officially replaced by Idol execs.  Online reports are buzzing this morning, however, that Jennifer Lopez will fill one of the two open judges’ seats.

Personally I think Idol should call it quits.  While no one can fill Simon’s black t-shirt, with two judges gone I think the show can no longer be what it once was.  The records hit a record low last year even with Simon still there.  I think the only thing that could rejuvenate Idol at this point is a Simon/Paula return.   

What do you think?  Are you going to still watch Idol with two new judges?

Thank you for being our friend Blanche Devereaux

Today the world mourns the loss of actress Rue McClanahan, who is famous for playing Southern belle Blanche Devereaux on the hit TV show The Golden Girls.  Ms. McClanahan passed away from a stroke at age 76. Blanche was always my favorite Golden Girl and it’s sad to think that there is only one surviving cast member alive, the fabulous Betty White. I always remember watching The Golden Girls with my sister who LOVES this show.  Thank goodness we can still see all of our girls in reruns.

Here is a tribute to all of the Golden Girls. Enjoy!

Did you watch the Idol finale?

I have to say that given the lackluster season on American Idol, I was not planning on watching tonight’s finale.  Crystal or Lee– I don’t really care who was crowned the winner. But since I *heart* Simon Cowell, I decided to watch his last show ever.  Amazingly I actually liked the finale and was impressed with the amount of musical talent on tonight’s show including past Idol winners.  One of the best things was Bret Michaels’ performance!!  It was good to see him back on the stage after his recent health problems.  If you missed his duet with Casey James, you can watch it here.  Yes Ashley this is for you since I know you are Bret’s #1 fan! 🙂 

Robert Pattinson’s new short hair cut – Love it or Hate it?

This week Robert Pattinson showed off his three-day old new short haircut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In the interview, Pattinson joked to Ellen that he had “nits” and that is why he had to shave it.  The reason he shaved it was for an upcoming movie, “Water for Elephants,” which also stars Reese Witherspoon. Pattinson said the movie begins filming in Los Angeles this week. 

Do you love it or do you like the shaggy mane he is known for like as Edward in The Twilight Saga?  I pretty much think he would be cute with any hair but if I had to choose I would say I prefer the more shaggy look he has made famous.  What do you think?

Brothers and Sisters’ Tearful Season Finale

I normally don’t cry while watching television. A movie, maybe, but not  TV.  But during the season finale of Brothers & Sisters on Sunday, I cried some major buckets when Sen. Robert McCallister died with his eyes open in the dramatic car crash.  It was SO sad.  Rob Lowe gave a definite Emmy-worthy performance in that episode.  From the events of the show, it makes me wonder if Robert’s death was a murder and whether or not that truck was supposed to collide into his car.  I can’t wait to see how the show will handle his exit next season.  I wonder if they will open with the accident again or his funeral.  This was supposed to be Rob Lowe’s last episode so I am guessing they open with some post accident aftermath.

If you watched, what did you think of the finale.  RIP Sen. McCallister.  😦
