It’s episodes like this one that make me like this show better than Celebrity Apprentice. That being said, that doesn’t mean I like everyone on it. David is a freaking loose cannon on the mens team and has been a huge problemo on ever episode. After Canadian Stephanie, the winning PM from last week, gets to meet with the CEO of Rockport, we move onto this week’s task. And with that comes the “king music,” just so we know that Trump is coming. All Hail. Barf. His first words of the episode: “As you can see, they named a bus after me.” Get over yourself already!
This week, teams must pass a test to get pedicab license, design a tour, and sell it. Team who makes the most money wins. Kelly is the project manager for the women (Fortitude), while Anand steps up for the men (Octane). Everyone passes the driving test except for Kelly and Mahsa, who were deemed unsafe drivers. HA! Hilarious.
British R&B artist Taio Cruz has enlisted Australia’s “Pop Queen” for his new single which will serve as his new international single. With “Break Your Heart” and “Dynamite” being huge hits this year, the remix of “Higher” featuring Kylie Minogue has a good shot of becoming another smash hit for 27-year-old singer. “Higher” originally appeared sans Kylie on Cruz’s “Rokstarr” album.
I have to admit, the addition of Kylie’s pop vocals is a clever addition to the track. Without her, “Higher” lacked that extra kick which relegated it to album track filler. But now that the Aussie Diva is on the track, it’s far more appealing and takes the single to a “Higher” level. This sassed-up remix is leaps and bounds better than Taio’s last collaboration with Ke$ha on “Dirty Picture“.
True Blood our heart’s pumping with that racy cover of Rolling Stone’s magazine…and now Next Magazine has brought it back to life in a …more gay way. Gerald McCullouch, Joe Conti and Stephen Guarino star in the gay film, BearCity. The three men cover the next issue of Next Magazine, hitting the shelves tomorrow for the October 22nd Issue. The issue also features an interview with Judith Light, discussing all of the unfortunate teen suicides.
The film, about a timid young cub named Tyler (Joe Conti) who sets his sights on foxy, older alpha male Roger (Gerald McCullouch), is something of a love letter to New York’s vibrant bear community. So it’s only fitting that the community opened its hearts, homes and wallets to make this movie a reality.
The film has done exceptionally well and there’s promise for a second…
Its has been a long time coming and it’s finally here. The Double Down has made it to Canada. If you don’t know what that is, it’s KFC‘s new sandwich. instead of bread you get two pieces of chicken, with bacon, cheese and sauce in the middle. Marketed as the “Man’s Sandwich” this has been on my radar to try since it was announced…and last night I tried it.
My excitement was through the roof, I couldn’t wait to chomp into this thing. Sadly, it’s not very good…
This has to stop. Corey Jackson, a 19-year-old student from Oakland University was found dead in a wooded area of the Rochester, Michigan campus on Tuesday. Jackson had hung himself. This the night before the “Spirit Day,” campaign where everyone was going to draw attention to the cause by wearing purple in unity for the fight against homophobia and teen bullying. The Michigan Messenger Reports:
Police say there is no indication bullying was a factor in Jackson’s suicide.
And while bullying may not be a factor, Melissa Pope, director of the university’s Gender and Sexuality Center said the issue points to larger, hidden epidemic of suicides among LGBT youth: “We must look beyond the term ‘bullying’ to the overall treatment of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community to begin to grasp the long-standing epidemic of suicide among our LGBT youth.While the national press has picked up this issue over the last two months, we have been losing high numbers of LGBT youth to suicide for decades…”
Whether or not bullying was a factor, suicide is never the answer. Reach out and ask for help! Check out the Trevor Project for help: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/
True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten steps into the sunlight and shares his beach bod secrets, as he takes the cover of November’s issue of Men’s Health. I’m sure he’s someone you’d certainly love to sink your teeth into. He works very hard to have the body he has (and that other’s enjoy). “I’m not one of those actors who gets physically fit for a role and then loses it all again.” An excerpt from the MH article, describes his regimen:
“Kwanten works out every day, sometimes for 2 1/2 hours at a time, year-round. It’s a strenuous regimen that Kwanten fills with a combination of running, biking, shadowboxing, vinyasa yoga, and other forms of intense cardio. The result is a total-body workout that not only saves him from the boredom of the gym but also reduces the physical stress that can cause injury. By adding variety to an exercise plan, you challenge many muscle systems without overstraining any single one. Just think about how both squats and running work your legs but use your muscles in different ways.”
Kwanten likes to blow off steam outside, “Just breathe some fresh air. You don’t have to be going at a cracking pace. For me, it beats the hell out of the gym.” He also isn’t ashamed to admit he’s into yoga. “I used to laugh at anyone suggesting it. Guys fear not being the best in these classes, but over time, you learn how to spend an hour not worrying about what anyone else is thinking. For guys especially, that’s a good thing.” Agreed. I need some yoga in my life.

I’m going to go a little more cerebral for this week’s man crush. ABC News Chris Cuomo has become part of my weekend ritual. My latest new obsession is to watch Friday night’s taped 20/20 on Saturday morning in bed. What better way to wake up then to catch up on current events and drool over some hot man candy at the same time. I’m such a multi-tasker. Jealous???
The 40-year-old Cuomo joined ABC News in 1999 and has held several positions within the network. Last year, the journalist was promoted to anchor the prestigious 20/20 desk. During his illustrious career, he’s won awards for his hour-long documentaries on pressing social issues, teen drug use, gang violence and other hot topics.
Chris Cuomo is a licensed attorney. He received his undergraduate degree from Yale and his Juris Doctor from Fordham University. Cuomo has some pretty high-profile familial connections. His father is the former New York Governor, Mario Cuomo, younger brother of New York State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, and designer Kenneth Cole’s brother-in-law.
Welsh singer Duffy, unveiled the cover art for her forthcoming sophomore album this week. “Endlessly” will be the follow-up to Duffy’s highly successful debut, “Rockferry“. The CD will hit stores on November 29. The lead-off single, “Well, Well, Well” is currently on radio rotation and receiving favorable reviews. I can’t wait for her new CD drop.
Duffy looks incredibly adorable on the CD artwork. Loving the pigtails. Given her squeaky clean image, it’s no wonder people often refer to her as the PG classy version of Amy Winehouse. Another artist she is often compared to is 50s soul singer Dusty Springfield. With her retro style, it’s no wonder why the comparisons are made.
