The Wolfpack will be back. Hangover Part 111

Categories: Uncategorized

Back in May last year we got to see The Hangover Part II and while it didn’t break any formulas or depart too drastically from the original movie, it still managed to do well in the box office. Today we have learned that there is going to be a THIRD and final installment in The Hangover series, making a trilogy of this comedy franchise

The Hangover Part III will star Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, who will reprise “the wolfpack” with their notorious roles of Phil, Stu and Alan. Part II was pretty much exactly like the original film, but set in Bangkok. I enjoyed the first and second, but I know that a lot of other people found part II to be fairly boring and unremarkable and will question why they are doing a third installment. The franchise has done extremely well though in the box office, which explains why they are doing another one.

In making the announcement, they stated, “We are extremely pleased to have Todd Phillips and the guys back together again for another ‘Hangover,’ and we look forward to collaborating with them on another great movie.” Phillips said, “I’m so excited to embark on another ‘Hangover’ film with Bradley, Ed and Zach. We’re going to surprise a lot of people with the final chapter we have planned. It will be a fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions.”

Production on the film is projected to begin in September and it is due for release in May 2013. Look, I’m kinda excited about another installment. I’m interested to see what they come up with given that they have said that this is the third and final installment in a 3-part opera. I guess it could really go either way and ruin the success of the first two or totally blow us all away. I personally hope that they shake up the formula a little bit and do something slightly unexpected.

Christian Slater Is Psyched About ‘Breaking In’ Season 2

Categories: Uncategorized

Christian Slater is psyched for “Breaking In” Season 2. After all, the new season almost didn’t happen. In an interview with “Good Day NY,” (weekdays, 9 a.m. ET on Fox) Slater could barely contain his excitement about Meghan Mullally joining the cast, his character Oz’s Star Trek chair, and well, the joys of seeing himself on TV.

Slater beamed about comedienne Mullally, who joined “Breaking In” this season as Veronica, a character who originally posed as a temp secretary, but was actually the head of a company looking into acquiring Contra Security. Slater had nothing but good things to say about his new TV boss. “Megan Mullally from ‘Will and Grace … great actress, full of energy, and she loves to throw money around, as you can see,” he said.

Slater also discussed his own character, who’s the ring leader of the information security firm at the center of the show. “This character Oz is a lot of fun. My favorite thing about this guy is that he gets to sit in the Captain Kirk chair from the original [Star Trek] series … this guy is definitely the captain of this particular ship, which I enjoy,” Slater beamed. Later, he told more stories about the chair. “I was naked in the Kirk chair, covered he roses.”

But then Slater got distracted … by himself. Looking around the studio, he commented, “There’s all these monitors and things, and I’m a phenomenal narcissist! I see myself in every frame, it’s crazy. I’m in heaven!”

Trump’s Sons Hunting Trip Probed By Zimbabwe Officials

Categories: Uncategorized

HARARE, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwean conservationists said Friday they are investigating the legality of a hunting spree in the country by the heirs to U.S. magnate Donald Trump’s fortune after photos showed up online of the brothers posing with dead game animals.

The independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said that Trump’s sons Donald Jr. and Eric killed an elephant, an endangered leopard, a buffalo, a crocodile and other “big game” animals on a 2011 trip arranged by a South African safari firm that is not registered in Zimbabwe.

Photographs of the brothers – one with the slain leopard and another showing one brother holding up an elephant’s severed tail in one hand and a knife in the other – have been were withdrawn from at least one website after a flurry of protests.

Animal protection groups were outraged how “rich people” had boasted about their “shocking and unethical” behavior, the trust said.

Johnny Rodrigues, the head of the conservationists’ alliance, said investigators are sifting through records on whether license and trophy fees were paid and if the South African firm had been cleared by Zimbabwe wildlife authorities to operate in the northwestern province near Victoria Falls.

Safari trips routinely require supervision by Zimbabwean rangers and licensed local hunters.

If they are found to have breached hunting laws, organizers and hunters can face imprisonment or a fine of up to $500,000, Rodrigues said.

“The safari operator was obviously paid but the majority of the money probably didn’t come into Zimbabwe,” he said.

Claims by the Trump brothers they gave the meat from dead animals to impoverished local villagers were also being checked. There are no villages in the northwestern Matetsi district of Zibabwe where they hunted.

“It is an insult to say ‘we gave away the meat.’ They mustn’t turn around and say that they shot those animals for conservation either,” Rodrigues told The AP.

“This is the problem with those who they think they can come to manipulate and control people, destroy natural resources and say ‘we came to help.’ We don’t want them here,” he said.

The Trump brothers have said they were hunting last year in an area with an excess of elephants.

In recent years Zimbabwe has not been able to cull elephants in districts where increasing herds are destroying the bush habitat that other species depend on.

Veteran animal rights campaigner Meryl Harrison of the Veterinarians for Animal Welfare in Harare said she was “absolutely disgusted” by photographs of the brothers with animals they shot and the international publicity they’ve received.

“You shoot an animal and you pose with the dead animal? Is it glorifying hunting? I think it is just sickening,” she said. “I just wonder what Donald Trump says, as he is against hunting.”

Zimbabwe is further investigating reports that hunting dogs were used on last year’s trip.

Harrison said Zimbabwe’s Wildlife Act of 2000 prohibits hunters from using dogs to hunt leopard or any wildlife unless given special authority in certain conditions.

“A leopard doesn’t stand a chance. The dogs chase it up a tree and they stay at the bottom of the tree and the hunter takes an easy shot,” she said.

Whitney Houston’s Deadly Cocaine Cocktail: Who Cleaned Up The Evidence?

Categories: Uncategorized

Cocaine played a major role in the tragic death of Whitney Houston, yet no traces of the illegal substance were found anywhere in the hotel room where she died — leading many to ask, who cleaned up the scene before authorities arrived?

On Thursday the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released the 48-year-old singer’s official cause of death, stating she drowned because of heart disease and cocaine use.

Just one month after her death, Whitney’s sister-in-law  Patricia Houston revealed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that it was her assistant, Mary, who first found Whitney drowned in the Beverly Hilton Hotel bathtub and it was her brother and Whitney’s bodyguard, Ray, who performed CPR to the point of exhaustion before paramedics arrived.

“As I got closer and I turned the corner, Mary’s at the door and she’s screaming ‘Oh my God.’ I told her to stop — I said ‘Calm down, please,’” Patricia told Oprah as she relived the scene.

“When I got into the room, I saw my brother Ray, the security guard, trying to revive her to the point of exhaustion and I called his name. I said ‘Ray, let it go.’ They asked him to move, he was on his knees, and he said ‘I tried.’ I felt so badly for him.”

But while Mary was in hysterics and Ray tried to save her life, who was cleaning up?

Whitney’s 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina, told Oprah she spent the night with her mother but that day her aunt, Patricia, says she was on the balcony in a neighboring room when Whitney’s body was found.

Authorities stated during their initial investigation that no illegal drugs were found at the scene, yet toxicology reports state, “Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death.”

Cocaine residue and traces of drug use had to be evident in the hotel room, with someone from her team scrambling to clean up the scene before authorities arrived.

While a 911 call was placed to the Beverly Hills Police Department at 3:43 p.m. on February 11 and they were on the scene in two minutes, the I Will Always Love You singer was pronounced dead just 12 minutes later, at 3:55 p.m. with no indication as to how long her entourage waited or attempted to save her life on their own before making the call.

Who else was in that room and who cleaned up what ultimately contributed to the troubled star’s shocking death?

Kim Kardashian speaks to Jay Leno

Categories: Uncategorized

Kim Kardashian was on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Wed. March 21 and told Jay she believes that her 72 days of marriage to Kris Humphries has changed her as a person. She also discussed how her divorce helped her personal growth. When it comes to the princess Kardashian, personal growth usually means personal wealth. The only real thing achieved from her marriage was publicity and money. She told Jay, “I pride myself on being an open book. We share our lives on a reality show,” the 31-year-old said, before admitting, “I didn’t know that the media would be so brutal with it, but I learned so many lessons about it and it’s changed who I am as a person I think for the better and the things that I care about in life have completely changed because of this so I really think everything happens for a reason.” Kim didn’t realize that after prostituting herself in the media sense for months on her “reality” program with her fairy tale wedding plans only to be separated prior to the airing of the wedding itself would create a backlash. If she isn’t the idiot as some have called her recently, statements like these certainly speak for themselves.

She was asked when she knew her marriage was over, The Griper’s #1 Moroon girl said to Jay, “I hear stories of people that were married for ten years, they knew it wasn’t right, but they wanted to stick it out and then they involved kids. I want that forever and I believed in love, I still do, but I felt to be fair to everyone I knew I had to end it and I’m OK with that decision.” I am sorry Kim, I am confused, and when did you think it was over? Who are “they” and who did you want to be fair with, you took the money, you allowed the shows to air and you have reaped all the publicity possible. Who were you trying to be fair with, Kris? Apparently there were also family warnings. I wonder what they were, probably warnings like, he’s not famous enough, and he doesn’t make the right amount of money to keep you in the custom you desire. Well, Kim’s response to ignoring those warnings was, “I’m a person, when I’m in love, you can’t tell me anything. And you gotta go through it yourself. So, I did what I believed in doing, and sometimes you don’t want to hear what your family has to say.” She added, “You look back and you’re like, ‘OK, that was a sign,’ or, you know, ‘Maybe I should have listened to them.’ But, I wouldn’t have been who I am today had I not gone through that.”

What Kim is today as well as yesterday is someone who has created a Brand and does anything and everything to live, all for publicity. This way of life seems to be the mantra for her entire family. Hopefully their 15 minutes will come to an end but unfortunately for all of us, another Moroon male or female or possibly family will be waiting in the wings to take their place.

Chris Brown – Need a Tissue?

Categories: Top Stories

Chris changed his profile picture to a tragic Vincent van Gogh painting called ‘Sorrowing Old Man (‘At Eternity’s Gate’)’ — is he devastated over losing Rihanna again?

Chris Brown has been involved in an intense love triangle with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, but it seems like he may have been dumped!

Chris, 22, took to Twitter on March 22 to write, “At Eternity’s Gate”. He also changed his profile picture to the similarly-titled Vincent van Gogh painting Sorrowing Old Man (‘At Eternity’s Gate’), which — as the name implies — is one of the saddest images of all time.

We’re thinking that Rihanna, 24, may have dumped him once more, causing him to get depressed and introspective!

Dan & Chevy together again?

Categories: Uncategorized

Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase may be working together again. The former “Saturday Night Live” cast members have already appeared together on several movies including, the 1988 film “The Couch Trip,”1985 “Spies Like Us,” the 1988 “Caddyshack II” and the 1991 “Nothing But Trouble,” which Aykroyd also wrote and directed.

Dan Aykroyd recently was quoted as saying, “Chevy (Chase) and I are about to start work on a script concept for a comedy movie, Cannot say too much about the concept, but the joy of working with him again is one that I am extremely excited about. Chevy is one of my favorite people, and one of the great anarchistic and physically committed comedians in the business.”

It’s too early in the process to report anything more however; we can only hope these two comedy gems can create something more than a movie which just gives them something to do. Aykroyd has also talked about another installment in the Ghost Busters franchise, I am sure everyone would agree, if the script isn’t up to standards, hopefully he’ll wait until it is before making that particular movie. We all remember the last Blues Brothers film.

The 7th Heaven Days

Categories: Top Stories

 

Jessica Biel didn’t always act like the squeaky character she portrayed on the hit TV show “7th Heaven”. She tormented producers at times but how could you blame her, she just 14 when she began playing the straight-edged daughter of a Protestant minister on the family-friendly drama back in 1996.

She says she went through a wild stage back in the day and that behavior at times made her bosses pretty mad. She says, “I cut my hair super short and dyed it blonde. I had to apologize to (producer) Aaron Spelling for doing that. He wasn’t happy. When I turned 17 or 18, a really obnoxious friend sent a stripper to the set. I had to apologize for that too. The show was all about family values, and they took that position seriously. I was always apologizing.”

Biel was written out of the program after she posed semi-nude for Gear magazine when she was 17 however, we can probably agree, she’s doin alright.

2 1/2 Men – It’s Time To Go

Categories: Uncategorized

 

The season is almost over and I believe the series should be over as well. The “2 ½ Men” that ruled the airwaves over the last several years is not the program we have had to endure this year. What happened to this program, what changed? Of course the main reason everyone gives is, Charlie Sheen. It is more than the departure of Charlie Sheen and the Charlie Harper character, much more. Without a doubt Charlie Harper not being the focal point has changed the dynamics. Charlie was the center, he could be funny, stupid, and sympathetic, and he always brought the story line back. When Ashton Kutcher was hyped as Charlie’s replacement, a buzz was generated and that was what was desired by the Producers, take the heat off the fact Charlie Sheen is gone. The problem however is the only real reference for the audience was Ashton’s previous Television character – Kelso from “That 70’s Show”. Now Kelso was loved yes, but he also was an idiot. Ashton’s new character Walden, although different from Charlie Harper, is also an Idiot. The problem I find is now we have 2 idiots, Walden and Allan. Allan’s stupidity was countered by Charlie, with Walden, Allan has no one to point out that stupidity with creditability, throw Jake in the mix and we now have 3 idiots. Too many idiots do not make a successful program.

Another issue that may have contributed to this mess is in the fact the Producers have too much on their plate. Having one successful program can create a challenge to the producers, re: consistency. The powers behind “2 ½ Men” have 2 more programs on their plate which have become very successful in their own right, “Mike and Molly” and the incredibly successful “The Big Bang Theory”. It is no wonder “2 ½ Men” has suffered, the question I have however, would it have suffered as much if Charlie Sheen was still part of the ensemble? Well, he isn’t but Ashton is, recently he was asked about his future where he said, “I’m adoring the time I’m having,” and went on to say,”I haven’t heard from the powers that be yet.” I’d imagine they would be speaking to him soon if in fact they do want to continue because Ashton is only on a one year contract.

In thinking of the future, perhaps the first thing done is to reflect on the past. Should they have replaced Charlie Sheen with someone who’s previous Television experience included numbers in the title of the program he starred in. Maybe going from “That’s 70’s Show” to “2 ½ Men” doomed this experiment from the start. Regardless, the next story line in Men should include a circus Shark act – you know the one, where they, Jump The Shark. In a recent episode we were exposed to dialogue which included the line, “If my Mother wasn’t’ here, I’d be steering the car with the back of my head,” spoken by Allan’s girlfriend while they were driving in his car. With writing like this, Chuck Lorre’s comment of a year ago is pretty apropos today, where he said, “A year ago today I know we thought the show was over.” Well Chuck, I think it’s over now.
