The Talk of Tinseltown
DUI Is The New Black


Ricardo Chavira, the actor who plays Eva Longoria's husband on Desperate Housewives, was pulled over for a routine traffic stop when cops allegedly smelled alcohol on his breath. TMZ says Chavira failed field sobriety tests and refused both breath and blood tests. The cops arrested him on suspicion of DUI.


Marie Osmond remarried her first husband, Steve Craig, in Las Vegas. Osmond wore the same dress from her first wedding to Craig in 1982. Part of me thinks this is sweet, while the other part of me thinks this is weird and a disaster waiting to happen.


In case you hadn't heard, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon chose ridiculous names for their kids. We all saw this coming. The little boy and girl are named Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon. Why Moroccan and Monroe? The top level of Mariah's Manhattan apartment is called the Moroccan Room, filled with Moroccan-inspired d├ęcor, and it's where Nick proposed. Scott is Nick's grandmother's maiden name, as well as his middle name. Monroe is named after Marilyn Monroe. Monroe has no middle name because Mariah doesn't have one. I get the reasoning behind the names, but I don't have to like them.


Yesterday afternoon, FOX made the official announcement that Paula Abdul will join Cheryl Cole, Antonio "L.A." Reid and Simon Cowell as a judge on the U.S. edition of The X Factor. Paula and Simon together again? This is exciting news.


Andy Dick was arrested at a restaurant in Temecula, CA because he was acting disorderly while under the influence of something or another. The only thing I know about Mr. Dick is that he gives me the creeps.


Sources connected with ABC say a huge deal with Katie Couric is in its final stages. Katie would do specials for ABC News, "20/20," and a significant amount of fill-in work. She'd also get a 1-hour, 5-day-a-week syndicated talk show that would begin in September 2012. This could mean General Hospital, the last remaining ABC soap, could be getting the ax. How many freaking talk shows do we need? No offense to Katie, but I can say with absolute certainty that I'll only be watching Ellen.

ok, so I didn't HATE Monroe. Until I figured out that it was the girl's name. Poor thing.

tara said...

I'm still angry about the name Moroccan. Weird.

stephanie said...

Moroccan and Monroe? no thanks.

Christina said...

I like Monroe, not Moroccan. Even MoroccO would have been better. It's like naming your kid AmericaN or MexicaN. Or DakotaN. So stupid. Andy Dick creeps me out too.

I used to dye my hair a color called "Moroccan Spice". "Moroccan Scott" is way, way too close. Strangely, however, I like Moroccan better than Monroe.

Christy said...

Can I just say my favorite line of this post was, "The only thing I know about Mr. Dick is that he gives me the creeps.". Thank you for that monring pick-me-up. And the names...uggghh! Moroccan??? That'd be like me naming my kid "Country Cottage" or "Kitchen" (since that is of-course where the hubs proposed). WTF?! And I'm kinda sad Marie Osmond got married. My mom married, divorced & remarried my step-dad & I honestly thought I'd be able to taunt them forever. Now it looks like the thing to do. There goes my fun! Happy Monday!

I bet Andy Dick is a child molester. There. I said it.
Seriously. Mariah and Nick...UGH. She's rich and stupid enough to name her kids that and her husband is like 12 so he went with it. BARF.
Katie Couric. I don't like her. She should go away.

Nikosmommy said...

Not that I watch any soaps, but i agree, talk shows are completely taking over. They all start to become redundant...either she'll get all heavy and have serious topics or she'll go for fluff and talk about "5 minute meals" and "flirty dresses for spring"! It's ALL been done. (and she doesn't seem funny so I predict it'll be boring!)

Alicia xoxxo said...

I do not like Mariahs babies names....ughhh....but I didnt expect much coming form her.
I am SOooo over all of these talk shows! Enough already!!! No one cares anymore! Although, I do like Ellen, because she keeps it light and funny!

californiadreamin said...

love me some Ellen!

AMY said...

Celebs name their kids the dumbest names...UGH!
Andy Dick is Creepy! Scary and he looks super old (like 60)!
What was Carlos thinking...he should know better.
And I only watch Ellen (Love her)!

grace said...

And did u hear they are calling them solely by their nicknames, "Roc," & "Roe." ??????

Date Girl said...

Terrible names. I'm already against naming twins with the same first initial. You are always going to call them by each other's names. Poor kids. Moroccan really? Sad.

Wow, Andy Dick looks like a rapist.

Heather said...

Thanks!
I feel all caught up now!
I agree 100% on Andy Dick!! What does he even DO anymore?

silvergirl said...

those babies don't have a chance!
did a double take on the Mariah pictures, didn't realize there was a person standing behind her... was thinking...damn she is huge!

The amount of talk/news shows out there is ridic!!
We don't need 21458245 different new stations/shows reporting the same damn shiz!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

In Mariah's defense at least she didn't name the kids Blanket... I still don't get what MJ was thinking with that.

P.S. Where do you find all these awesome celebrity outtake shots they crack me up!
