1. Why would Jared Leto do this to his hair?!


It’s a ponytail and a bun. You know how I know? Because I used to wear my hair like this when I was studying for finals in college. Not to the Golden Globes.

2. I love Andy Samberg. I wept when he left “Saturday Night Live.” Maybe not so much weeping as just saying to my husband, “Oh that sucks that Andy Samberg is leaving SNL.” But I do think he is very funny and I really wanted to like his new sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

But the show feels uninspired and flat to me and the morning of the Golden Globes, I deleted it from my DVR for good. And then bam – two Golden Globes for the show. I think the Hollywood Foreign Press might be a little drunk. Okay, a lot.

3. Why would a 70-year-old man (who looks so much like my dad) jump on one of those electric motorcycles just two days before his hip replacement surgery?

I guess he figured he hadn’t done enough damage to his body trying to ice skate with the twins the week before.

4. Why does everyone think Jennifer Aniston is pregnant because of this photo…

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Apparently, it’s the placement of Justin Theroux’s hand that is the tell tale sign. I guess she could be pregnant.

Or maybe she just leaned over to Justin and said, “Honey, that triple cheese beef taco I ate in the limo is not sitting well with me. I am so bloated  I am about to bust out of my Spanx so be a dear and put your hand in front of my stomach while I get my photo taken.”

Or that pregnant thing.

5. Why are they pretending that Haddie Braverman never existed on “Parenthood?” I really think she would have shown up to her mom’s election night. I’m not even a big Haddie fan but I don’t like when TV shows just change the rules like that. That little Nora Braverman better watch her back.

6. My girls loved the movie “Frozen” and I thought it had a pretty good message for girls. Plus, I seriously adore that snowman. But Disney, enough of the anorexic waistlines and big weird doe eyes.  It’s not a good example for young girls and it’s super creepy.


Yes, creepier than Jared Leto’s pony-bun.

    Jared did that because he’s Jared and he can. Because hair up, down, long, short, he’s still one of the most attractive men in the universe. Yes, really. (have you seen the yummy pics on his site from his vacation? A must see!)

    I am so far behind on Parenthood. I have heard so many complaints about Haddie not being mentioned anymore. That’s sad. I need to catch up. But if they are only going to tick me off, is there a point?

    Your dad is great! Go pops!

    The Aniston thing? I am confused on it also. Instead of tacos, I thought she was bloated from PMS. But you know, either way, still the same.

    I still haven’t seen Frozen. But I want to. I do agree with you on the ideas planted in girls minds based on the films. Where is the plus size queen or princess? (Anything over a size 4 is plus sized to Hollywood and Disney.)

  • Kim says:

    I agree with all of them, especially Haddie! I mention her absence to my husband after every episode. Did they forget about her completely? You’d think they’d exchange a phone call now and then. It wouldn’t even require the actress to be IN the scene!

  • bitsy says:

    I thought the same thing about Jared’s hair. Dude, just ponytail it.

    And why does everyone want Jen to be pregnant? That’s what I don’t get. They have been reporting that she is for, like, 20 years. Lay off her, people! A woman doesn’t have to have children to be complete.

  • Lanie says:

    While Disney is adjusting the waistlines and the eyes maybe they can consider not always killing off the parents. . . Regardless, we are Frozen Fans (complete with singing “do you want to build a snowman” 47 times a day.

    Good luck Tommy Tom – I hope that all goes well (with the surgery and the new motorcycling).

    P.S. When i saw Jared Leto’s ponytail/bun it did remind me of you and studying for finals. xo

    I was disappointed Jordan Catalano didn’t wear his black choker.

    I’ve also wondered about Hattie. Perhaps they should have a stand-in. Tyra Collette may be available.

  • beachgirl says:

    Your Dad is AWESOME!. Then End. Lots of luck to him on his hip replacement – looks and sounds like he will be the super bionic man when its all done.

  • Stacy says:

    I am with you on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I too had it on my DVR and would watch it every week. It just wasn’t very funny. I couldn’t believe that it won.

  • Michelle says:

    Sadly, I was thinking about Haddie Braverman this morning. Why would they just dump her? Then I started thinking about what it could mean. Did that actress go to college? If she does go to college, will she be a has-been when she gets out??? Thank you informing me that I am not the only one…

  • colt13 says:

    6. They call those “Anime eyes.” Or the Jayma Mays look(the cute Emma from Glee).

    3.Ice in Florida? Now that’s a cool picture.

  • Erin says:

    Re: Hattie. NBC is just hoping we killed enough brain cells watching tv to forget about her.
    Re: Frozen. Eyes are annoying but more so what does Disney have against parents? They are always killed off or just strangely missing?

  • Karen says:

    Erin, I hear you on the parent thing with Disney! I spent quite a bit of time during & after trying to explain what happened to my daughter (she is 6). Why could they not have sailed away & returned when all was well? Still, liked the movie & loved Olaf!

  • Issa says:

    I saw something somewhere and to be honest it could have been Buzzfeed, but I don’t remember anymore…anyway it said if Jennifer Anniston had as many babies as had been reported on magazine covers, she’d have 27 right now. They showed every single cover and here she is 15 years of that crap later with none babies.

    Basically? I’m of the opinion she’ll never have any. Ha.
