The (We Wish He Were) Naked and the Dead
Poor Mike Delfino. He made a sudden departure on Desperate Housewives, much like many of the show’s loyal viewers. Actor James Denton’s death by gunshot wound was a shock to many, even if it was leaked at the Nicollette Sheridan trial—and by anyone watching the show on the East Coast. Dead or not, we still think Mike’s the hottest Dilf on Wysteria Lane.
Another sad death came to the big-budget film John Carter, which cost over $350 million to make and took in $30.6 million in domestic box office over the weekend. The New York Times called it “Ishtar Lands on Mars,” and most everyone else just called it off. Read Movie Guyd Jay’s review of the film here.
Dignity was on the demise this week, especially after Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett’s comment about the new ultrasound bill: The Pig of Pop (Party of Palin) advised women to just “close your eyes” when an invasive object heads up their insides. We hear ya, Corbett. And we think you should set an example and try the new ultrasound technique yourself. As Karen Walker once said, “Just point your heels to Jesus and think of handbags.” See, we can be Christian too.
Quote of the Week
“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me. But they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress. They want to control how we act. They even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies.”–Hillary Clinton, 3/12/12
Death on Denial?
… And then for showing off his “SYTYCD Like a Hater” audition tape. Actually, I’m sure he’ll be on DWTS within 15 minutes.
Speaking of Stiffs, Newt Gingrich went after ABC’s GCB, saying the title was hypocritical and un-American. I agree: Let’s go back to the good old days of guns, God, and open marriages.
Check out our interview with GCB’s Mark Deklin and hear what he has to say about the critics.
Musical theater is alive and well, and coming to a theater near you. Barbra Streisand’s film version of Gypsy is back on, with 69-year-old Babs playing Mama Rose—heck, if she could play a boy in Yentl she can certainly play a domineering stage mother! No news yet as to who will be cast as Stripper Louise, so we thought we’d make a few suggestions:
Katy Perry: If She Can Act It
Anne Hathaway: If She Can Sing It
Lea Michele: If She’s Not in It We’d Really Appreciate It
YouTube Video of the Week: Which One Is The Real Fake?
Funny how two women can both play completely scripted creations. Watch here. ”Game Change” reached 2.1 million viewers and was the most watched HBO flick since 2004′s “Something the Lord Made”–ironic, as Palin is something the other half made.
Hate, unfortunately, lives, and after this instantly infamous bumper-sticker (above) went viral, the Huffington Post did a follow-up piece. The sign is from a site called Stumpy Sticker’s, and they’re chockful of hateful messages. There are no words for this kind of behavior, only hope that things will get better.
Speaking of getting better, if you didn’t already have enough reasons to get fat, Ben & Jerry’s released a flavor in support of same-sex marriage. Ah, we love you guys as much as we love your ice cream. You, sirs, are this week’s Guyding Lights!
