Somebody Check the Water

So, Kim is expecting (via surrogate).

Kylie announced she is pregnant less than a week ago.

Now it comes out that Khloe is also expecting.According to People, she is three months along.

It sure is hard to “Keep Up” with those Kardashians!

And, please, somebody check the water in the family compound.

Survivor Premiere Tonight!

Yes, it’s back on tonight…Survivor.

Ever since that first season when Richard Hatch introduced the concept of “alliances”, this show had my full attention.

And it’s back tonight.

Who else enjoys the athelticism but also the strategy, human drama and “Lord of the Flies” intrigue?

Outwit.  Outplay.  Outlast.

Megyn Kelly Today

Megyn Kelly made her NBC daytime show debut – taking over the 3rd hour of the Today show this morning.

In what was a somewhat surprise move, she left Fox News to join NBC, and while her Sunday night show didn’t get off to a great start, the daytime show was meant to be a fresh start.

I tuned in for a bit to see the “Will & Grace” cast interview, and let’s just say her natural interrogative properties she skillfully wielded on Fox News didn’t quite convey to morning show warmth. There was a ‘trying too hard’ kind of feel.

And then came the Will & Grace interview including bringing up a super-fan. She asked him if he “became a lawyer and became gay” because of Will & Grace. AWKWARD!

Here’s a link to the video – take a look for yourself.

She may just be finding her way, but girl you ain’t anywhere near Oprah yet.

For me, it’s not going to be Megyn Kelly Today, Tomorrow or the Next Day. Opinion: HARD PASS.

Royal Romance

Great Britain (and the world?) are all a-flutter with the first public outing of Prince Harry and his girlfriend of one year, Meghan Markle.

CBC has the must see photos. They were dressed casually! OMG! They held hands!

If you thought you’d be living the Grace Kelly dream of dating/marrying a prince…you’re out of luck. But I bet the wedding will be fab…

Art at Work – It’s a Sticky Situation

I love, love, love this!

Get out your sticky notes and get creative.

Who doesn’t love old school, pixelated video game characters and a good old-fashioned competition between business?

 DNA Info provides the deets and shows pictures of a friendly rivalry going on in Chicago.

Back in the day, arcade games cost a quarter, and if you were really good, you could clear a couple levels and get a 15 second Pac-Man cartoon. (Remember when Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man got married? ::swoon::) But this article here, is good clean fun for free, no skill required.

HEARTILY ENDORSED!!

KARDASHIAN PREGNANCY RUMOR

I’m not really in to the K-family, but hey, the people want what the people want, so we shall give you all things Kardashian news!!

 Buzzfeed is reporting that Kylie has a bun in the oven. Is she the model? I can’t keep them straight.

Anyway, commence kibitzing about this nugget of news, FFF (FocusedFeed Friends). Sounds like a new reality show to me?!

The Night Of

Riz Ahmed won for Best Actor for his role in The Night Of.  Eight powerful and gripping episodes tell an enveloping story of prejudice and (perhaps in)justice.  The transformation of his character is unexplainable.  Literally it has to be seen to be believed.

One of the best mini-series I’ve ever watched.

NO, This is Not Normal

I’m going to take a brief respite from fashion and pop culture posts to be “THAT PERSON”.  I know, not everything is politics, but this guy, Sean Spicer, as the spokesperson for the President of the US, blatantly lied to the country (the world) multiple times for no purpose than to soothe the fragile ego of his boss.  Example:  “Largest inauguration crowd ever.  Period!”

Him showing up for yuck yucks at the Emmys for image rehab shows me the country is becoming numb to a culture of holding leaders accountable for their actions more now than ever before, and that makes me sad.

Now back to the fun.

Purple FTW

Generally men wear a tux in black and snooze fest, that’s it for award nights.

Donald Glover rocks the purple – yes, I said PURPLE!

LOVE IT

Too Much…It’s Simply TOO MUCH

Issa Rae (HBO’s “Insecure”) and Riz Ahmed (HBO’s “The Night Of”) on the Emmy stage together – WOW.  So much talent and two of my favorites from the past year.

(SWOON)
