Kate Winslet’s Fight Against Plastic Surgery

Kate Winslet started a campaign against plastic surgery in Hollywood.  I am starting my own campaign against Kate Winslet.  Really Kate, you are against cosmetic surgery, and are encouraging other Hollywood starlets not to fall under its magical spell?  Really?  How very convenient for you to start this campaign AFTER you’ve have all your plastic surgery done.

You don’t know what I’m talking about?  Well, let me refresh your memory.  Remember how you gave birth to two children?  Remember how you got really fat?  Remember how you had all that ugly, saggy skin hanging and hated your body?  Remember how you lost all that baby weight, and all of a sudden had even more sagging skin?  Remember all those interviews you did saying how much you dislike your body?  Does any of that ring a bell?

It’s really funny how all of a sudden you decide to “start loving my body”.  Sure you are loving your body now.  After all those nips and tucks and Botox injections, or whatever it is they inject into women’s foreheads across the pond (say that with an English accent for better effect; sounds much better), of course you are loving your body now!

How very mature of you, as a role model for girls everywhere to mislead them about what a “natural” woman looks like.  Looking at you at the Sunday’s Emmy Awards really made me believe that your hotness is purely due to working out, eating right and shedding baby weight.  Yea, right!  A tummy tuck, a breast lift, and full body liposuction had nothing to do with the way you look now, right?  At least be an adult about it and admit you had work done.  Do us all a favor, don’t lie to the regular folk.  We are not idiots, alright so some of us are very much the idiots but we still would like to hear the truth.  Own your Man-Made Beauty, Kate Winslet!  Own it!  That’s all I gotta say.

Oh Sarah Palin, what nonsense fell out of your mouth now…

Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her unapologetic statements about Paul Revere the other day.  Even I, someone who was raised in the Communist Soviet Union where you learned history based upon what the government wanted you to know not what really happened, also learned about Paul Revere’s warning calls to the Patriots.

After checking with my fifth grader, it was confirmed that they are still teaching that Revere’s midnight ride and warning calls were in fact to the American Patriots, not to the British soldiers.  As I have tried to come up with reasons and excuses for why this poor, ignorant woman would make such claims, this is what I’ve come up with:

1.  Palin is just plain stupid.  And as my grandma used to say:  “You can fix anything, but you just can’t fix stupid no matter how hard you try.”

2.  Sarah Palin has invented her own version of American and Republican history.

3.  Palin is really a genius who purposely creates material for Saturday Night Live, so she can claim success of the show as her own.

4.  She is undercover for Comedy Central.

5.  Nope, she is just plain stupid.

6.  She was the only one to come out of her igloo to vote herself into the Governor’s office, therefore she has to be right.

7.  In America, if you don’t have the brains but got the looks, it gives you the right to make up your own version of history.

8.  Nope, just plain stupid.

9.  She can see Russia from her house!

10.  This excerpt from the Katie Couric interview explains it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRkWebP2Q0Y&feature=related

Do we really expect anything different from a woman who can’t name a single newspaper, and claims that she knows foreign policy based on the fact that she lives “next door” to Russia, therefore can “spy” on them?

Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes

I really don’t understand what’s all the bruhaha about!  Why is everyone so upset with Ricky Gervais, and his performance at the Golden Globes?  Last time I checked, Ricky Gervais was a Comedian, and the Golden Globes committee hired him to host the show knowing that he is a Comedian, right?  I am pretty sure they also knew that he is British, as well as his comedic style and sense of humor, right?  It doesn’t just change overnight.  He did the same thing last year as well.  People, what is the big deal?  I could be totally wrong about this, but I am pretty sure that Comedians are supposed to make people laugh, make fun of people, things and events, especially actors and celebrities.  So, when Ricky made fun of celebrities at the Golden Globes for their own stupid behavior, was that not funny?  I thought it was.  People are saying that it was inappropriate and tasteless, but I couldn’t agree with that less!  I think he was dead on, and furthermore funnier than every other host of that show or any awards show altogether!  Jon Stewart tried it, and was funny but not edgy enough for my taste.  Ellen DeGeneres was so-so, staying on neutral subjects and trying not to cross the line.  That’s not comedy, that’s censorship.  I want outrageous, tasteless, edgy, hysterical, dark humor!  I don’t think I am alone in that.

Are we not supposed to laugh at the stupid lives of these so-called celebrities?  Are we not supposed to laugh at their lavish lifestyles, multiple nannies, housekeepers, chefs, and personal trainers to make their lives “easier”, only to find them unable to manage their personal lives, get arrested over and over for public intoxication, driving drunk, hurt those around them, and finally end up in jail or rehab?  Of course we are supposed to laugh at that.  How else are they ever going to learn?

I absolutely loved seeing the actors faces when he was talking about them, it was priceless.  Priceless, I tell you!  Talking about the characters in the Tourist movie being 2-dimensional was genius, not tacky.  Even I had to take a moment to think about that one, and you know that’s a good joke if that happens.  What about his introduction of Robert Downey Jr.?  Yes, it was crude but so what?  Downey is constantly making fun of himself.  For instance, a few minutes before the show started, as he was walking down the red carpet he made an obscene joke to a reporter about his drinking and rehab days.

If the guy can make fun of himself, he can definitely take a joke from a comedian.  All of them can, they are not called Public figures for nothing!

So all of you straight arrows out there, take a chill pill (does anyone say that anymore?), buy yourself some sense of humor, and laugh a little!
