Last week, while in the Dominican Republic, I watched a lot of CNN's Showbiz Tonight. I was appalled at the amount of airtime taken up by none other than Kate Gosselin. Is she really a celebrity? Is she an absentee mother? Blah, blah, blah... I mean, really. She totally blew it - again - on Dancing with the Stars this week. You fans out there, you have the power to remove this woman from the show. Exercise your right to do so!
There was a big debate as to whether Kate was a courageous single mom trying to provide for her kids or a narcissistic fame whore. I'm leaning towards the latter. Yes, she's making way more money being on a shit reality TV show than she would nursing, which is what she used to do. I get that.
But this whiny-ass woman does not belong in celeb land. So she's a domineering mother of eight. This is a legitimate claim to fame? Watching her on television is about as much fun as listening to fingernails against a blackboard. It's cringe-inducing. I don't give a shit that she's a single mom of a small sports team - that's her problem.
Kate's famous for subjecting herself to this. The fact that she survived is the only thing differentiating her from a Darwin award winner.
In other maddening celeb news, Jessica Alba will be a member of the judging panel for the Tribeca Film Festival. To which I say: Huh? Other judges include Brooke Shields, Alicia Keys, America Ferrera, Zach Braff, Aaron Eckhart, Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Peter Facinelli, Cheryl Hines and Whoopi Goldberg.
Notice how one is not like the others? The others, in this case, are talented performers. Jessica Alba is woefully inadequate as an actor. I mean, let's get real. This girl gets by on physical assets alone. It's an insult to this film festival that she's actually a judge. Who did she blow for this gig?
I am SO a talented actress!
