Ramon Rodriguez Transforms Into New Bosley

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Say hello to Charlie’s right hand man, Tom Bosley. 31-year-old actor, Ramon Rodriguez is the latest cast member to join ABC’s 2011 reboot of “Charlie’s Angels“. The latin hottie is certainly an upgrade to those who’ve portrayed Bosley. While the Angels have always been gorgeous in the original or in the movies, Bosley has been… let’s just say, not so angelic. In the original 70s series, David Doyle portrayed Charlie’s go-between, while Bill Murray and Bernie Mac took over the role in the movie adaptation and sequel, respectively.

Since the reboot is taking place in sexy Miami, it only makes sense the producers selected an equally sexy latin stud. The new and improved Bosley will be very tech-savvy and have a way with the ladies. Whether this reincarnation is a hit, one thing is certain. It’ll be one of the hottest casts on television. Rodriguez joins Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as the new generation of hair-flipping crime fighters. Robert Wagner has been tapped to play the voice of Charlie.

American Idol 10: Hollywood Week Day 1 & 2

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After seven episodes of hearing the good, the bad, and the truly awful, we enter the second phase of “American Idol“. Hollywood Week is by and far my favorite part of the audition process. In past years, the producers have skimmed through this portion and it always left me with wanting more. Even though tonight’s episode was only an hour and covered the first two days of competition in Hollywood (actually it was Pasadena), it was very well-paced and covered quite a lot.

Surprisingly, the episode followed up with plenty of the contestants we’ve gotten to known through the auditions. This year, over 327 singers received golden tickets, doubling the amount they normally grant. Will more contestants mean, more drama and tears. I surely hope so. By the end of the episode, over half of them didn’t survive the sudden death solo rounds. Check below to see, which early favorites fizzled and which continued to sizzle.

While other writers on the site occasionally write about Heidi Montag and her cohort, Spencer Pratt, I have tried to shy away from giving them any sort of press. Sure, I sorta found their schtick amusing during Season 3-4 of “The Hills“, but their attitudes and actions have annoyed me to no end the past few years. These two are so hungry for fame and to stay in the news, they often stage things to garner press. From their their fictitious breakup, separation, divorce filing and back to their reconciliation, there isn’t anything Speidi won’t do to grab headlines. These two are seriously ridiculous. Having said that, when I read about this incident, I felt compelled to write about it and rip Heidi a new one.

In a statement, Heidi claims Jennifer Aniston banned her from attending the premiere of their movie, “Just Go With It”, for “being too polarizing”. Montag goes on to tell US Weekly, that she was also prohibited from walking the red carpet as well. Here’s what plastic Hills Barbie also stated:

“I’ve been such a huge Jennifer Aniston fan my entire life and it’s just really upsetting that she would do this to me. She should know how hard it is to make a career for yourself and to have someone like Jennifer Aniston go out of her way to make things hard for me is really disheartening.” – Heidi Montag

Homorazzi Chats With Stonebridge

In: Interviews, Music, Tyrell

Last month, world renown DJ and producer StoneBridge was in town and Patrick and I got a chance to meet him (through our friend Amber). We sat down to chat about where it all started and what he’s up to now and let me tell you, this man cannot sit still.

StoneBridge has been making music for decades and his chart topping remixes are a clear indication that this guy knows what he is doing. His remix of Ne-Yo’s Closer even garnered him a Grammy nomination. StoneBridge was also the first DJ that Britney’s people asked to remix her lead-off single from Blackout, Gimme More.

Between touring, producing and his radio show on SiriusXM, what else is there to do? Well, Stone revealed exclusively to Homorazzi that he has been in the studio helping 90’s pop diva Crystal Waters make a come-back with some new tracks which we hopefully begin to hear in March. I can’t wait! Stone is honestly one of the nicest guys I have ever met and was so great to talk to.

Thanks to my friend Scott, this past weekend I was lucky enough to catch the screener of  Justin Bieber’s new film ‘Never Say Never‘ in 3D.  And now for a confession – I enjoyed it.

A few months back, I got to see Justin in concert and he was actually really good.  He put on a great show and – shocker – sang the whole thing live, which compared to most artists at least double his age, is a pretty big deal.  Anyway, after that concert I kind of understood the whole Bieber Fever thing.  I love ‘I Just Need Somebody to Love‘ and ‘U Smile’…ok, I love ‘Baby, Baby, Baby‘ and now ‘Never Say Never.’  Now that I’ve admitted that, we can talk about the movie.  The whole movie centers around the 10 days prior to Justin’s performance at Madison Square Garden and also tells the story of how he started out as a kid singing songs on YouTube.

Wine 101: Words I Can’t Pronounce

In: Charge It, Nic

Mourisco, Tinto Cao, Tinto Roriz, Vinho Verde, Encruzado, Tourigo Nacional, Malvasia, Codega….

What the hell am I talking about? Grapes! And more specifically, Portuguese ones. There’s a whole world ouside of the grape varietials that the world has come to know and love, and a whole experience that doesn’t involve Chardonnay or Merlot. But don’t let the fact that you can’t wrap your tongue around the syllables intimidate you, because every single one of those syllables is delicious and worth a try.

Portugal is my number one underrated country for wine. I’m a fiend. And for those of you that like you some Spanish wine, it’s not a far cry from what you’re used to. A lot of people think Portugal, and they think Port (if it’s called Port, it has to be from Portugal), and are turned off because they don’t like sweet wine, but that’s really not the case. The country itself puts out an incredible amount of White and Red table wine, even though we only see a fraction of it imported here. The problem with reading the labels is that, like France, they don’t usually put what varietal it is, like us North American’s are so used to here. They do it by region. The more popular one’s you’ll see are Dao, Douro, Alentejo, and lately Bairrada. I know, more words we can’t pronounce, but you’ll get over it once you start drinking it I promise.

Today I woke up to an e-mail from a petition I had signed a while ago in support of Bill C-389, which will add gender identity and gender expression as protected grounds of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act and in federal hate crimes laws. This is awesome new for the Transgender community but it still has to be passed into law. Bill C-389 was introduced by NDP MP Bill Siksay and read for the first time in May 2009 but finally last night the private members’ bill passed third reading in the House of Commons and is now on its way to the Senate. I’m worried that the Conservative dominated Senate will try their hardest to prevent the Bill from passing into law but only time will tell now. The vote was close, 143-135, but surprisingly saw six Conservatives break ranks to vote in favour of human rights – including John Baird and Lisa Raitt. Maybe with this news other Conservative MP’s will follow and the Bill will be passed into law for Canada.

Currently the Canadian Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based upon race, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability and conviction for which a pardon has been issued. The amendments add both “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the prohibited grounds of discrimination. Opposition has tried their hardest to see this Bill fail stating that nowhere in the bill are the terms “gender identity” or “gender expression” defined or differentiated. They also argue, legal recognition of transgendered people will allow men who say they are women to enter women’s washrooms, making it easier to commit assaults and other attacks on women. To me this is just ridiculous and sounds more like they are grabbing for anything possible to stand in the way of this Bill. If a man commits assault despite claims of sexual identity or whatever washroom her is in, it is still assault and he should still be charged as such. I don’t think the opposition really understands that if a man is claiming to be a transgender woman and is in the pre-op stages they want nothing to do with their man bits, let alone use them in a sexual way. So for a man to claim transgenderedness and yet assault a woman, clearly said man is lying and trying to use it as an excuse.

Is Modern Family Initiating A Threeway?

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Last night, Modern Family took us through the havoc that Valentine’s Day can cause: the dinner reservations, the surprise, the babysitters, all of that. But, my favorite story line of the night followed Cam and Mitchell and Mitchell’s office assistant, Broderick.

When Cam calls the office to find out if Mitchell received the flowers he sent from himself and Lily, to his dismay, they have not reached the desk. His first assumption is that Broderick failed to deliver them. Why? Because he has a crush on Mitchell. As much as Mitchell denies it to Cam’s face, Mitchell admits that yes, his assistant has a crush on him.

But then, the tables turn. When Cam comes to get Mitchell at the office to go for dinner, he finds out that Mitchell is mysteriously in a meeting and Broderick ‘forgot’ about their dinner reservation when he booked the meeting. I little peeved, Cam heads into the elevator to leave. Broderick follows him in only to throw himself on to Cam saying how hard it is to see someone have something you want so bad. WHAT?!

So how does this relate to a 3-Way? Find out here…
