Ana’s Top Celebrity Tweets of the Week


Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen,

This week’s post was delayed because I wanted to allow for the full week after Sandy/Halloween tweets to come in. Half our country was celebrating Halloween, which seemed at odds with everything going on for our East Coasters – our hearts go out to everyone affected by the hurricane.

Without further ado, these tweets made the cut for me:

Decided to post this one first because I’d like to get on a soapbox for a second: I can empathize with how difficult it is to be considered a role model when, as a celebrity, you only intended to be an entertainer- is it unfair for us to ask you to be a little more responsible than we are because dumbass stans are modeling themselves after your choices? Is this 100% unfair, yes. However, woman, are you stupid!? I know I like my spirits, and I know I’ve done my share of other things back in the day, but zero impressionable youths are looking  up to me! Maybe be a little more apologetic, and stop hanging about with that misogynistic asshole while you’re at it, okay, hun? Thanks.

Off my soapbox, can someone tell me how I can persuade Mindy Kaling to be my best friend? Also, this serves as a reminder that I seriously need to watch Friday Night Lights, it’s one of those shows that I missed out on and I hate myself everyday for it.

Am I the only one that follows Michelle Betts? She was on the first season of Tough Love: Miami, I loved her because she was a down-to-Earth kind of girl, sweet, and if you follow her on the Twitter she gives out tons of fitness tips (she’s a personal trainer, in real life). Anyway, I’d completely forgotten Breaking Dawn was coming out this month! Did the Robsten cheating scandal Eclipse (see what I did there?) its release, or has it been totally over-shadowed by the garbage that is 50 Shades of Suck Grey?

 Well, this is awkward . . . but, uhhh, I guess someone should break it down for Kate Mara . . . darling? They are saying your face is wonky.

Ohhhmygoodness, aside from the fact that I am forever mad that homeboy’s name is IronE (pronounced irony) Singleton, he was NOT exaggerating at the amazingness that was last night’s episode of The Walking Dead! If you haven’t read the comics then you didn’t anticipate so much happening in one episode. Great acting from Singleton, and Andrew Lincoln’s Rick was flawless (who continues to do ‘things‘). Read the DiC recap!

I guess I need to dust off my Follow me to America VHS language acquisition series, because I have no clue what the hell a ‘madrilena‘ is.

No clue what he’s on about now, Maher probably mocked Trump’s stupid 5 million proposition to President Obama, and now he’s probably flipping his wig over it. It’s comical coming that Donald Trump, who is an amazing idiot, goes around picking fights with everyone for attention – especially when his entire public persona reads like a long-running mid-life crisis stunt.

I still don’t know what a Cody Simpson  (his Twitter background is of him holding a guitar, so I assume he’s a musicianis, but I’m intrigued to know why he promised his fans to post a ‘Guys with Iphones‘ type of picture.

In tweets related to Hurricane Sandy:

Is this not the coolest thing for an athlete to do? Wish more acts of kindness like this would happen nationwide! Four for you, Dwayne Wade-Coco, you go, Wade-Coco!

Did you all know that some of the medical staff of NYU medical center ran down nine flights of stairs in darkness carrying patients from the NICU, while also helping to manually work the machines that breathe for the patients that were on respirators? Bravery at its finest.

 Too soon, Caroline Rhea. I’m all for finding some laughter in times of crisis, but it should be handled with more respect . . . or, at least, y’know: be funny. Saturday Night Live flamed on Bloomberg and Christie brilliantly without being worthy of side-eye. At least she didn’t pull a Lindsay Lohan and call it #HurricaneSassy, while asking us to just pray it away.

While I kept watch of news stories and twitter accounts for information on how the East Coast was doing during Sandy . . . the comic relief came from this parody account of Mayor Bloomberg. His Spanish alter-ego, Miguel Bloombito was flawfree, I had so many of his tweets retweeted and favorited, I was almost choking laughing from his updates. Rhea should take note, this is Sandy joking done right.

While the ING maintained that the marathon could have gone on without taking away from the city’s recovery, I agree that the best was for the marathon to be cancelled, it’s a bit sad that all the efforts put forth by the runner’s will have to wait until next year- but at least it’s more time for training! Also, it was another amazing opportunity for generosity in that a lot of the participants donated their hotel rooms to displaced individuals.

Now for some Halloween posts!

Two things bother me about this, 1) in general, I dislike couples’ costumes, and 2) I dislike Paris Hilton. Ughhh, the costumes are great, and she looks cute here. I hate myself.

The other Paris, as in, Paris Jackson, is adorable. Her Adventure Time costume as Marceline the Vampire Queen was nicely done.

Best-Costume-Ever. If you don’t like A Christmas Story, or haven’t seen it, then I don’t know what your childhood was- and I don’t know that we can be friends. Seriously, he wins.

My favorite costumes are always of things that aren’t popular that year (hi, everyone who dressed as Katniss Everdeen or an Avenger), nerd things, or ones that make you nostalgic . . . I am in love with Naya Rivera for being the Roadrunner! beep beep!

Unlike Paris Hilton, here’s someone I dislike immensely making it easy for me to continue disliking her. Miley Cyrusmust you duckface in EVERY single picture? Have you no friends to tell you what a complete twat you look like, does Liam not care that  you look like a fool? Also, if you’re quoting a Nicki Minaj song while dressed as her: pick a different song to quote, you stupid, Stupid Hoe.

My dislike of couples’ costumes doesn’t count for family costumes, I love those. My uterus jumps at adorableness like this, not as much as it flailed at the Harris-Burtka family costume, but it jumped.

Again, couples costumes need not apply, but, Ashley Benson gets a pass because theirs is not a sexified version of Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum. I love Halloween so much, I would lose my shit if I saw a complete set of characters from anything – I would have loved for these two to be at the same party as Paris’ Alice.

If you haven’t seen Chris Brown’s idiotic costume, check out the DiC post linked again  here, but I won’t be posting it again since I’m still pressed at Rihanna’s dumbassery (see first tweetcap).

Many other celebs were did their over-the-top thing, I won’t post Kim Kardashian’s mermaid costume picture because it encompasses everything I hate: you whored-up an already sexy costume idea (read: over-kill), and it’s a couples’ costume, and you didn’t even look good in it (if you’re going to pay over two-thousand dollars for a wig, make sure it’s worth it- read: it wasn’t).

That’s it for this week, folks! Hope all our East-Coasters recover quickly, and ask everyone that can pay an act of kindness forward to do so!

Louis C.K. on ‘Saturday Night Live’


It’s been a long week for the New York, New Jersey and surrounding areas but the show must go on. ‘Saturday Night Live‘ has a way of bringing the funny after major and disastrous events, check their post 9-11 episode where Lorne Michaels asked then-mayor Rudy Guiliani if “they could be funny.

Many are still without power, but while things are up and running at 30 Rockefeller, host Louis C.K. took the opportunity to address the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. You can read his letter to New York here via The Hollywood Reporter.

The cold open featured Fred Armisen as Michael Bloomberg accompanied by his sign language translator Lydia Callis. I think she might be more famous than Bloomberg and his mediocre Spanish. 

Chris Christie, played here by Bobby Moynihan also shows up wit his own New Jersey style translator. Bloomberg makes a special plea to the Hispanic population of New York, asking them to be patient with white people because they going to miss ‘Homeland‘ and that is the “worst thing that has ever happened to them.”

I wasn’t expecting Louis to sing or go on about how nervous he was to host. His whole monologue was basically stand up with him talking his encounter with an old lady, or something. It wasn’t that funny to me, but it was Louis in his natural element.

Best Sketches

In a parody of his own show ‘Louis,’ Mr. C.K. appears as President Abraham Lincoln, arguing with his wife Mary and chillin’ at the bar with a couple of freed slaves. They were able to perfectly capture the tone of his show while making some well timed jokes about the 16th Prez. Easily the best and funniest sketch of the night. Here is the dress rehearsal version.

The last sketch of the night, “Last Call” was surprisingly funny, and gross. I saw a lot of comments praising it for the latter. Louis simply shows up at a bar and drunk flirts with Kate McKinnon, but it’s the ridiculous things they say to each other coupled with the open mouth kiss that saved it from being the last only slightly funny sketch. I also learned that a lot of the ladies wouldn’t mind getting slobbed down C.K.

Weekend Update

For the final WU before the big election, we only get Jason Sudiekis as Mittens Romney but strangely no Jay Pharoah as President Obama. He talks with Seth about how Hurricane Sandy has overshadowed the election. Maybe the writing staff wasn’t sure that there would even be a show this weekend but it was a little disappointing that there weren’t more political sketches, not just during WU but for the whole show.

Despite that, Aidy Bryant makes a good showing as “Social Media Expert Kourtney Barnes.” She also appeared in the Lincoln sketch as Mary Todd and I’m really glad she’s getting more screen time on the show.

Worst Sketches

Australian Screen Legends” had only one real funny joke, which was that Louis’s character was the “Australian Steve Zahn.” I don’t remember much else about it.

Mountain Pass” was just bad, okay? I’m sure everyone involved regrets every second of it.

Next show will be hosted by Anne Hathaway with musical guest Rihanna. I wonder if RiRi will show up to rehearsal this time?

Christina Aguilera Performs ‘Beautiful’ For Hurricane Sandy Benefit (Or was it Peggy Lee?)

I love hearing Christina saaaang.  She performed her lovely hit “Beautiful” for the televised “Coming Together” Benefit for Victims of Hurricane Sandy.


Speaking of old, blonde broads, raise your hand if you think Christina should play Peggy Lee in a fabulous biopic?  I KNOW, right?? Why the HELL aren’t I a casting agent? Watch this vintage video from The Dean Martin Show, where Miss Lee gives us a lovely rendition of her melancholy classic, “Is That All There Is?”…



I’d like to leave you with the image of a skinny little 3rd grader with freckles in a navy blue mini sweater- dress, with a saucy little belt, navy tights and red patent leather Mary Janes singing “Is That All There Is? ” her best friend, Susan Hackbarth, just to make her cry with laughter.  That little dork was me.  I’d hold an imaginary highball glass and a Fanny Farmer chocolate ciggie in one hand, then slur my words into my hairbrush…”lets break out the booooooze.”  Memories.  Seems I never stopped doing my old act, right Cyndy?  Only those times I was covering Miss Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone” right smack in the middle of our office.

One more thing: This post was written entirely while under the deep influence of Ambien. And. It. Shows.

What were we talking about?
