Andy Cohen talks Madoff, Larry King, and Franklin Roosevelt.
Well, I guess it's ABOUT to be a snowy morning... It's not as I type this but I saw Janice Huff - the Empress of NYC weather - in the hallway yesterday and the look on her face and her red suit said to me "6-8 inches" vs. "wintry mix".
Yesterday I met with a gal who works at MSNBC and is looking for a career change. I took the opportunity to ask her why the "news" on TV is 24/7 Caylee Anthony. Am I alone in not giving a crap about Caylee over other stuff in the world? Of course I want her returned and I love children and I love Caylee but there are a trillion missing kids and we're at war and broke and there's about to be no more water, so what is extra special about Caylee again? Find her and let me know then.
So is this Madoff creep going to commit suicide or die in jail or be killed or what? What will happen to this horrible guy?
The gays are in a STATE about Pastor Rick Warren speaking at the Inauguration. Here's how lame I am: I got so revved up that Aretha is on the program, that I forgot to get worked up about Rick Warren. Now that I've gotten 85 mass emails from pissed homos I've given the matter a little thought and decided that I do not care. Obama is trying to put up an umbrella that has covers everyone, and that includes stupid people, cat lovers, homophobes, and radicals. I care more that Obama supports gays than him letting some Nazi speak for a minute at the inaugural. I am looking at the big picture here and I know that no one agrees with me.
There's a tribute to Ron Howard's 50th Anniversary in Show Business in today's Variety. The guy is fantastic and you just root for him. There's a great full page ad from his kids that will warm your heart. (or not.)
This is starting to read like a Larry King column. (i.e. no good.)
Last night was the Palm with Jonathan Alter and his amazing family. Besides his amazing NEWSWEEK column, Jon wrote THE DEFINING MOMENT: FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT AND THE FIRST HUNDRED DAYS. And why do we care about THAT, you ask? Well Obama is reading it right now, which is reason enough for us all to put it in our Christmas Beach bag along with Maureen McCormack's bio. They're probably RIGHT next to each other in the bookstore.
We saw THE READER after dinner. INTENSE! Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslet can do no wrong. Wow.
Oy now this really IS reading like Larry King. I am in the midst of screening a few episodes from next season of the REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NYC, and I am doubling over with laughter. PEOPLE magazine just named RHNY one of the top 10 shows of 2008! Mazel, ladies!
Ok enough of this nonsense. Have a great day!
