  1. Yulanda Williams: I just googled that. Oh, boy, she was in the worst of the worst. OMG. Apparently taken in from childhood, just as Leah was.

    I just can’t with the preposterous legal strategies anymore. How could they get the lawyer’s bank records for that cross examination? However, I appreciated that he had the motivation of saving his brother. That was a somewhat clever twist.
  3. I noted mostly that he seemed really tall while looking into the refrigerator.

    I’ve been donating to Tia and to the small Lomg Island shelter where we got our dog. So sad about Spencer. I was not clear on what happened. Was he caught associating with folks he wasn’t supposed to? Darn. Timbrrlake was so excited!

    Another example of fakety-fake crying by hubby in the interview room!

    Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club

    Very sad. Yesterday she was on Howard Stern. He asked if she was upset at not getting acting roles any longer, and is she upset when she sees someone like Emma Stone, who is comparable in age and look, getting great roles. She said yes, and she attributes it to her not living in LA anymore. When you’re not around they don’t think of you, she says. No insight or just a sad cover up. There’s a picture of LL in today’s NY Post in Page Six, where I swear she looks like a 60-year old Joan Crawford.
  8. I have to disagree in part. All religions depend on fundraising, albeit not to the level required by Scientology. Churches or synagogues can’t function without membership fees and additional fundraising. For example, I have seen friends who belong to a synagogue have to attend an annual dinner and pay a fee. Every year someone is nominated for an award at the dinner, and it’s expected that the honoree will donate money and solicit outside friends to donate. It can get pretty aggressive I consider myself lucky that I was raised without religion. But I find them endlessly fascinating. We had cousins who joined the Sri Chinmoy cult. One left as a 50 year old after a wasted life. It’s partly to try to understand why that I watch shows like this and read up on the subject.

    So a brand ambassador is someone who “up-sells” $1500 bottles and beach chairs! All righty then.

    I agree with this. It's the ascendancy of social media, which we happen to be participating in here. But they want you to post on Twitter and the like so that they will get buzz, even if the responses are nonsensical.

    This is the worst show. So unfunny! I tuned in to a random episode because I saw the lead actress in Crazy Rich Asians.

    The IG report is riveting.

    Welcome back, show! James was pulling an Eddie Haskell. Hope that’s not too much of a geezer reference.

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    The Friday story was edited in such a misleading way. The friend couple spent an hour and a half in high dudgeon about Sabrina''s transgressions, but then it was revealed that they were involved in the poly lifestyle too. It came off like they were jealous. Then it was revealed that they were divorced. Why not just say so from the beginning?

    S01.E07: Part 7

    Too late now but for future reference it was on Showtime Anywhere at midnight, but not on regular on demand. They usually post episodes earlier on the SA app. I learned this while watching other shows.

    So funny. Dano is also my BIL’s doppelgänger. We’ve noticed the resemblance for years.

    They were really off the air for a long time, I realize now!

    They are married for two years? I thought it was one year!

    S01.E01: Meet The Bates

    The first episode of the new Bates show is sneak previewing on demand. I caught it yesterday by chance. They still seem way more normal than the Duggars. Not as much time in front of the cameras yet plus less personality disorder. I loved watching Gil go up in a tree with the chain saw. My dad was in the same business and did the same stunts daily. While it was very scary we just thought of it as normal.
  20. Well, that's just it. It would paint them into a corner. a corner that doesn't really make sense for these people. They are not the type of people, usually the super orthodox, who sit shiva for a daughter who does the wrong thing (e.g., marries out of the faith). But they have also been written as overwrought. overbearing, overinvolved parents. Still, I can't see her having to hide a career as a comedian. Just my gut feeling.
  21. That was the plot of Dirty Dancing! What if someone saw them performing at the Sheldrake? Seriously, for me it was only fake drama that she couldn't tell her parents she wanted to be a performer. It just didn't ring true. Sure, Rose and Abe are peculiar prima donnas, but still . . . What were they going to do? Sit shiva?
  22. Yes , she could have kept sneaking out as she was doing at home. I think they skewed it so they could stage the ludicrous reveal where Abe was wearing a Hawaiian hat.
  23. I'm glad you pointed this out. The Catskills were always a showcase for comedians. I thought Susie would have been glad to have Midge there and could have booked her more often.

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    I recorded this wacky Twilight Zone/telefilm mashup called A Carol For Another Christmas, with Sterling Hayden as "Scrooge." WTF? Anyone ever see this before?
  25. How hypocritical for Rose to give Midge the cold shoulder about the baby shower when she (Rose) ran away to Paris. And would Midge really have just forgotten the baby shower instead of apologizing in advance for having to miss it because of her tour? Those are two of my top peeves for the season. Also the silliness of two wacky girls driving around in the Bonnie and Clyde car. In the 50s people did not drive vehicles like that. You could buy used recent vintage cars for little money. They could have afforded that. ASP anachronisms again.
