Time Out: Celebrity Gossip

So the Fertile Soul gets a day off. What does she do? She catches up on all the celebrity news of course. Where does one begin with all this foddor between The View, Clay Aiken, Kelly Rippa, Michael Richards, and celebrity infertility story to boot? First off, i love Rosie O'Donnell. I just love her. So, naturally, ever since she joined the View, i began to record the View. I still dont actually get to watch it, but on occasion, i get a day off and i'm bored and i thumb through my recordings. On yesterday's episode, apparently, they were talking about Kelly Rippa's tiff with her guest co-host Clay Aiken (American not-Idol). And then they showed the clip of what Clay did to tick Kelly off.

Apparently, she was not letting him get a word in edge wise during their interview with the winners of Dancing with the Stars. Soooo, to get her to stop talking or firing questions, he thought it would be cute if he put his hand over her mouth to physically shut her up. Ha. Ha.

But Kelly would have none of that and i really really respect that she instantly just stopped the questioning, gave him a look, shook her head (eyes bugging out), and said "Oh, that's a no-no." He said "oh, i'm in trouble now. I should just sit back here." But then he awkwardly tries to change the subject by asking questions of the winners from DWTS. But Kelly joked back, "saying, no, i just dont know where that hand has been."

Which is so true! Seriously, people dont wash their hands enough. And if you're a celebrity, you're most likely shaking A LOT of strange hands. Donald Trump in general has a policy against hand shakes.

So good for Kelly for not sitting back and accepting that treatment, even though it caused a scene on live tv. So what. She didnt like the treatment she was getting, and she stood up for it.

But then, Rosie O'Donnell said on her show that Kelly's comment (i dont know where that hand has been) was a homophobic comment. and that she would not have said that if he'd been Mario Lopez. The other women disagreed with Rosie, and, on this one, sorry Rosie, i do too. It's the flu seaon and people are just gross in their hygeine, straight or not. Disgusting hygeine habits do not discriminate and affects all people regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.

And then, while the View is on, Kelly calls into the View and disagrees with Rosie saying that she should know better than tell the American people that her behavior was homophobic, when it was natural to not want another man place his hand on one's mouth, regardless of whom that man sleeps with at night. Rosie kept her position, that from her point of view, as a gay person, that it was homophobic.

My pov is this, Rosie, you're a little sensitive to all things potentially homophobic. The fact that something may be schewed into a homophobic reaction does not necessarily make it so. You need to take a breath and be more objective. I think you take this one way too personally.

Onto other topics. The co-host on the View was Sherri Shepherd (comedien/actress). She was funny. But she told this story about her baby. He's 19 months old now and they show his picture. And she's like, i love my baby. And i'm thinking, man, does everyone just have kids to talk about??? But then she goes on to say that she delivered him at 5 months. FIVE MONTHS. He weighed a pound and was born with bleeding on both sides of his brain, and that because of this he was going to have severe cerebal palsy, severe mental retardation, shunts in his brain, operations, holes in his intestines and "we were going to pull the plug and let him go." (At this point i'm balling.) And then she said that before pulling the plug she asked God "God, i'm going to give this baby to you, but i've been praying so long for a baby, if you could give me a miracle.... And when we went to go pull the plug to let him (the baby) go to heaven to be with his sister because i lost his sister too, the doctor came in to say that the black hole in his intestine was healed and that his intestines were pink and healthy. And when the doctor said that i knew that God was saying to me that he comes home (to heaven) when i say he comes home, not when you say."

Kleenex! Someone pass the tissue! Good Lord, God is great.

And then, finally, Breaking Bonaduce. I know, i know, what am i doing watching reality tv, right? I should spend my time more "wisely." Well, sometimes you get suckered in. Did you know that that Danny Bonaduce married his wife on the first date because she said that she cant have sex with him unless they were married? So they got married and the next morning, he wakes up to this woman by his side and is like "who is you?" and she's like "i'm Mrs. Bonaduce." And so the romance began.

But, i just have to say this because no one is saying it on that show, his wife does not want to be with him. Ok, they are kind of saying that, but only because he has anger management issues, once cheated on her, and had some addictions to intoxicants of some sort. They're trying to deal with that and still stay married, and for the most part he's gone to rehab and they're all in therapy. But, the whole show is about his psychological issues and them dealing with his psychological issues. So you mean to say, that once he's cured "his" problems, she'll be okay with him? Because, she has no problem of her own?

Her issues are blatant, and i'm just wondering, when is the therapist going to key into that? She is in complete mommy know what i mean? You know when you get into mommy mode, and chop your lovely locks into a boy cut, and start wearing ugly mommy pants that reach your armpits like Steve Urkel? Ok, she's not doing the mommy pants or boy cut, but everything else that exudes from this woman is asexual. And that's not Bonaduce's fault. That wont be healed or cured by his therapy. When all is said and done and he does become whole, she will still not be interested in him. That's the ultimate tragedy of this story, unless she turns around and realizes that she's lost herself to motherhood and needs to resurface as a complete woman.

Those are my thoughts on my day off. Now it's off time to cook. yay!

Oh wait, how can i possibly forget Michael Richards, huh? What a *!@&#*!#@. I just cant believe all the vile garbage he spewed on us like that. What the F#*$&! What's wrong with that guy? Get yourself into therapy, man, and out of the lime light. The media is focusing on how, oh, at least Richards takes responsbility for his actions and doesnt blame substance abuse. I'm sorry, but Michael Richards DELIBERATELY THOUGHT THOSE UGLY THINGS, deliberatley repeated the N-word OVER AND OVER AGAIN. He was not under the influence of any drug. He knew exactly what he was saying and it was vile and he kept at it. Mel Gibson was drunk. There's a difference in intentionality here. The media is trying to paint Mel Gibson's racial slurs as worse because he says he was drunk (which was true, hence the dui and the cop who reported the comments) but i dont see how they are worse (especially since Mel Gibson apologized and accepted responsbility for it, saying that what he said was despicable, not that it was excusable because he was drunk). But it is, in fact, WORSE when you say that stuff with a straight face, meaning every last damn word.

Now i'm done with the gossip review.
