It’s no surprise to the people I know that I am obsessed with shoes and particularly runners/sneakers. Jeremy Scott‘s collaboration with Adidas is one in particular that I’ve noticed these past few years with his eccentric and whimsical designs. From the triple tongue runners to the metallic winged ones, this collaboration always seems to sell out and is probably one of the most successful partnerships in sneaker history (not counting the hugely successful collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto).
Probably even better than the late Alexander McQueen’s collaboration with Puma.
So, who is Jeremy Scott?
The National Enquirer has taken another stab at revealing John Travolta‘s sexuality and apparent affair with their manny – and call me gullible, but it kinda seems plausible AND N.E. is not the only one working on blowing the lid off his secret life.
Travolta graces the cover of this week’s issue of tabloid mag, claiming he’s been cheating on this 47 year old wife, Kelly Preston, who is due to give birth to a boy later this fall. Rumors in the past have suggested that the Church of Scientology threatened to out his sexuality if he ever left the “church”. Maybe that’s Tom Cruise’s excuse as well? Travolta had already been outed by former Scientologist, Michael Pattinson, who had said that Travolta got down & dirty with porn star Paul Barresi, among other men, at a secret gay spa.
A secret gay spa? Yep, that’s right. Author Robert Randolph is set to release a tell all memoir titled, “You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again,” which will reveal all of the known faces that were Spa-ted at the facility working on their
shaft craft. Among some of the names?
A huge explosion from an oil rig was reported in the Gulf of Mexico and the coast guard is on the scene. There were 13 workers aboard the rig – 12 of which were rescued safely, while one is injured. The location of the spill is approximately 90 miles south of Vermilion Bay, and west of the BP oil spill. The rig is owned by Houston-based Mariner Energy, among the largest independent oil and gas companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico.
Another devastating blow to innocent bystanders – the ocean & the environment. Ironic that a man was shot down after taking Discovery Channel hostage in his offbeat efforts to save the environment, then the day after, another oil spill. Not that it has anything to do with Discovery Channel, but just ironic that that was the big news story yesterday, and this will be the big one today, and for days to come I’m sure.
For it’s 22nd season premiere, “The Simpsons” are enlisting help from their Fox friends. The cartoon has done musical-themed episodes in the past and they’re doing it again for their Sept 26 kick-off. The episode titled, “Elementary School Musical” finds Lisa with a newfound love of showbiz and attends a performing arts camp. Enter a few Gleeks for some good old crossover promotion fun.
Lea Michelle, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley find themselves at the same camp. The three actors voice the animated versions of themselves for the episode. With the help of her new friends, Lisa begins to embrace her creative side. When Lisa returns to Springfield, she becomes restless with her mundane suburban life and makes changes to recapture her “inner hipster“.
Patrick normally takes care of Big Brother-related posts, but I couldn’t resist writing a small blurb about last night’s episode. Normally at this point of the season, I’m bored out of my mind because most of my favorites are without fail, always voted out.
In between all the gaming, scheming, POV competition and ceremony, the producers showed a hilarious dancing segment that had me in stitches. I can’t even remember the last time I laughed out so loud during a BB episode. Big Brother maybe a lot of things, but “Soul Train” or “SYTYCD” it ain’t.
As repercussion for Lane opening Pandora’s Box, the housemates were forced to get up and shake their groove thing. The rules for “BB12′s Dance Party” were simple. Whenever music came on the speakers, the contestants had to dance until the music stopped playing. For twelve hours, the cast had to interrupt whatever they were doing to boogie on down. Their punishment was our gain. Gloria Estefan was right, “the rhythm is eventually going to get you.”
Last week “Glee” released the first batch of promo pictures for Season 2- the slushie wars. This week the first actual images and video from Glee’s Season 2 premiere, titled “Audition“, have made their way onto the web. The kids from McKinley High are back, and with an “Empire State of Mind“. The Jay-Z and Alicia Keys hit, is the first audio we’ve heard from the upcoming season. All summer long, we’ve heard casting news, and potential plot developments but no video or audio… until now.
I didn’t realize, I was in such Glee withdrawal until I watched the 30-second trailer. Immediately, I became giddy with excitement that a new episode was just around the corner. The short clip doesn’t give a lot in terms of spoilers, but it certainly wets your appetite. What we do find out is, this year the nationals are being held in New York, ergo the Jay-Z cover. We also see Will’s ex-wife, Terri, is back and Quinn has her pre-pregnancy body back. Scroll after the preview pics below to check out the trailer yourself.
With only five people left in the house, each competition is crucial – and this time, the POV competition is life or death for Ragan and Enzo, but mostly Ragan. The brigade still make up three of the five people, and Lane who is one of them also has an alliance with Britney, the fourth person in the house, leaving Ragan on his lonesome as the fifth. Dude better pull through on this or he’s dunzo!
Shortly into the episode, Enzo gets to take his penguin costume off by way of a shunning ceremony – the houseguests are super bored and looking for things like this to do at this point – clearly! After that time waster, Ragan spends his time studying all of the houseguests faces, the order of HOHs, POV winners, and even spends some time bench pressing. He is determined to win this POV and I hope he does!
At the Veto competition, the houseguests meet Otev (Veto backwards – clever) The Broadway Clam. There are CD’s everywhere, amongst mud puddles, etc. Otev sings a short song about two evicted houseguests and the houseguests have to figure out who he’s talking about then find a CD in the yard that is named with the two names combined and bring the CD back. Last one out, or with incorrect name, is eliminated.
Looking for some more Spice in your life? Well, 35 year old Mel B (aka Scary Spic), has a new docu-comedy called “Mel B: It’s a Scary World“, which premieres this coming Sunday, September 5 at 9pm ET/PT on The Style Network.
The show follows Mel while she and her husband Stephen, a successful film and TV producer. raise their two daughters, Angel (3), and Phoenix (11). I guess while Geri Halliwell looks for the new Spice Girls, Mel B wants to make sure she’s not forgotten or replaced. Well, actually, in comparison to a lot of the other girls, she’s been doing a lot in the public eye. She killed it on DWTS and she is currently a host on Dance Your Ass Off and is releasing her Get Fit with Mel B videogame later this year.
