happy halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEENNNNN EVERYONE!!!!!!!

Here are some quick things for the day.. :)

1,000 lb pumpkin dropping onto an outhouse? Innnnteresting.


Too old to trick or treat? It's okay. Make one of these:




Why are these SOO funny?!? Tons of Halloween pranks-->




Do you believe in ghosts?! Watch this FOX news video and then fast forward to about 20 seconds LEFT. At about 13 seconds left, it looks like a ghost appears in the background, on the deck. They think it might be the ghost of the daughter, Caylee, who was killed. Woah.




Alright, I'm running out of time! Sorry! Everyone have a fun and safe Halloween!!! :)

leaving the hill

It's time to say byebye to your friends on The Hill.


Yep, FOX has canceled the second-longest running cartoon series.. Which will officially end after its 13-episode 13th season.

The show started in 1997, and there was always talk about it being canceled, but now they have officially pulled the plug.

Not everyone over there is very happy about it, but they thought it was time.. And have even made plans on what will fill that gap on Sunday nights.. Either a spin-off of Family Guy called "The Cleveland Show", or "Sit Down, Shut up."

This scares me.. I hope they don't do anything crazy with the Simpsons, too.

But I guess this show has slowly been fading out.

Adios Hank and fam! We shall miss you!

before you go out tonight..

..Make sure you know how to do the booty dance!

You want to impress everyone tonight, right?! Dressed up in your barely-there costume.. You better make sure you know how to work it..! ;)

Good thing this video is on the internet for us to learn how!:



Ha, honestly, it makes me laugh. But it's cool, I guess. The basics for ya. :)

Let me know how it works out for ya! And THANKS to whoever was clever enough to make such a video.......

speaking of couples

So, speaking of couples.. There's a new one that I certainly didn't know about.. So I wonder who did?!

One Tree Hill co-stars Sophia Bush and James Lafferty are dating.. OFF SCREEN!

And how did it become public news?! Sophia's ex-hubby and another co-star Chad Michael Murray spilled the beans during an interview with CW News..

"[Sophia and I are] both professional and mature enough to get through it. Now, it's just easy. She's got James, and James and I are friends. It's just a little tight group in Wilmington."
--Chad Michael Murray

Wow. Uh. Hmm. I'm a big fan of her, I like her a lot.. But, this is kinda awkward, am I right? I mean.. her ex husband is on the same show, and good friends, as her new boyfriend. I thought there was a rule like, don't date friends' exes.. Or, find new people in different area codes?!

They do make a good couple, though. Maybe it's one of those Dawson, Joey, Pacey love triangles.. And this is the one she is supposed to be with.

Meh, either way, do your thing, honey! ;)

elizabethany

barbie and ken lovers




You know those couples that make you SO jealous and make you believe that love is real and it can happen to you? [Or the ones that completely break your heart and your hope for love when they break up..] I have the Top 10 list of them, and an Honorable Mention.

I call them--> my Barbies and Kens:


Honorable Mention: Sean Puffy Puff Daddy P Diddy Diddy Combs and Jennifer J.Lo Lopez -- 1998-2001
Okay so, in hindsight, this probably wasn't a good relationship.. But ya gotta admit that at the time, they were one of the hottest couples around. Their looks matched, and I think individually, this was the high points of their careers. J.Lo was still Jennifer.. Jenny from the Block, if you will, and bangin' out awesome songs. Diddy.. or Puff Daddy, wasn't the cocky SOB that he is today.. Well, not as bad, anyways. How I miss those days..


Ashton Kutcher && Demi Moore -- 2003- still goin strong
As much as I am kind of weirded out by the age difference in the two, they are a damn good couple. The fact that they can be married and happy and cute, while still getting together with Demi's ex Bruce Willis is amazing to me. (And weird kinda.. But cool.) It seems like they're always going to be in that puppy love stage.. life, forever.


Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson -- 1997-2005
Okay, okay.. So it's either cliche, or stupid of me to include them.. But I'm sorry, when they were together, they were PERFECT! Or so it seemed, anyways. She could definitely be herself with him, and he seemed to love every second of it. It provided good entertainment and definitely made me want to be a Newlywed. ;)


Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams -- 2004- now.. kinda.
Any female is going to agree with me here.. Or any guy who likes The Notebook. The two met while filming the most amazing love story of a movie ever, and then fell in love off-screen too! They have been off and on a little bit, but that doesn't even matter. When we see them kiss, it's like our wildest dreams of a "Notebook story" coming true. Plus, as of now, they're totally together! They're always having fun and being goofy and touching each other. It's real. I know it. Fairy tales can come true.


Que Mosley and Dawn Richard -- 2008- puppy love

If you're one of my MTB lovers, all I have to say is: silver slippers. If not, they are the perfect definition of puppy love right now.. And I think it's going to last.. At least for a little while. Que is absolutely in love with the girl, saying he's going to marry her, etc. It all started with her refusing to give him a chance, but when she did, she fell hard, too. She still doesn't love showing her affection to everyone, but it's obvious it's there.. And he makes her losen up quite a bit. They're precious.


Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears -- 1998-2002
Call me typical or whatever you want, but these two were the epitome of a great couple during the pop era. Everything about them matched. Plus, they had the fairytale story of growing up together in the public eye and hitting the big time together the whole way. They were always having fun, laughing, and keeping each other sane. They both admit to this day that the breakup was one of the hardest times of their lives. And really, if you don't believe me on this being a great example of Barbie and Ken, google image them. They're amazing together and every day I hope it'll happen again. :)


Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon -- 1997-2006
After Jen and Brad broke up, I had given up on love. When I started to believe in it again, it was because of these two. They seemed to place NOTHING above their marriage and kids.. Until the split. When I once again realized love isn't real. Everything matched with them. They were like a puzzle that fit together without any force.


Tim McGraw and Faith Hill -- 1996- still very in love
These two know how to do it right in Hollywood. Or Nashville.. wherever they may be. They both have hugely successful country music careers, yet they make time for each other and their family. They have even set rules on how long they can go without seeing each other, and it's not a very long time. Still, they go tour on their own, and make special appearances at each others shows when they can.. AND record tons of singles together. If this marriage were to ever fail, that's it. I'd be done with relationships. I'd give up. I need them together forever. And they will be.


Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston -- 1998-2005
When you think of perfect couples, TELL ME you think of these two. I don't care if you on stupid Angelina's side, THESE TWO represented perfection. When they broke up, I gave up on love.. no joke. Their looks matched, their body languge.. everything. And if you can honestly look at pictures of them, and then compare to pictures of Brad and Angelina, and tell me that he's happier now.. You're lying to yourself. Period.


Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi -- 2004- just married!
So this example may not technically have a "Ken".. but they definitely represent a perfect couple. They just got married over the summer once it was finally legal, and it's so obvious that they couldn't be happier. They're both equally as infatuated with each other. Beyond all of that, they're opening the nation's eyes to show that homosexuality is no big deal.


Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith -- 1996- forever.
These two are the definition of real love. They're not in the relationship just to be in the public eye, there's not one that thinks they are better than the other.. They are in it for each other and their beautiful family. They are ALL VERY talented, but they don't flaunt it. I have no doubt in my mind that even if neither of them were famous, they would still be together. They're soulmates. A couple we'll remember AND SEE forever. They're legends.


Ahh, I love reliving the past with relationships, and seeing people all happy and lovey together. It's cute. :)

Congrats and good luck to those couples still together.. for those who we've "lost"... I will always have hope for a reunion.. ;)

As always, let me know what you think! :)

love,
elizabethany

record breaking


If you're a Fall Out Boy fan, you want to be listening to the radio or checking out your favorite radio station this morning!

They're on a mission to break the record for most radio interviews in one day.. and they're goal is at least 60.

All they have to do is talk to 60 stations for 5 minutes each, and always mention the Guinness Book of World Records.

I feel like that doesn't sound like too much.. but we shall see, eh?!

Good luck, guys!!

love,
elizabethany

shut up....

IS THIS REAL?!?!?

No really... I'm a gymnast and I LOVE playin with babies and trying to get them to do flips or whatever.. But this is over the top. And. Wow. I literally covered my mouth in disbelief.



.... My goodness. You're about to dislocate your kids arms.. And maybe even kill them.

love,
elizabethany

yikes

Hey guys,

I just want to apologize for the lack of updating the past couple days. It's been a terribly hectic week for me, and I have been trying to post for the past 2 hours and it just isn't going my way. I'll do what I can tomorrow, and for the entire weekend.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! :)

elizabethany

dos mas!

The countdown continues...

more days til HALLOWEEENNNN!!!


I have some more celeb costumes for you!

Courtney Cox-Arquette, dressed as a witch, and also the host of this party... Kurt Russell as a pilot, and David Arquette as a wizard.

Isla Fisher as a fairy-tale princess..

...and Fisher's boyfriend, "Borat".. aka Sacha Baron Cohen as a cowww...

As mentioned before, Gwen Stefani as a fried egg.

Ohhh man. I'm disappointed with the lack of creativity.

Step it up, everyone!

elizabethany

update: JHud's tragedy

So, her nephew's body was identified, and the autopsy showed that he died from 2 gunshot wounds to the head.... :(

Now, they think someone else was involved besides Jennifer's sister Julia's ex-husband and father of Julian. They think he had help driving his car around, etc.

But get this.. William Balfour, who's in for questioning, has quite the history. In fact, he violated his parole in June, which he was on for attempted murder back in 1999, for having cocaine on him. Had the police decided to revoke his parole back in June, he wouldn't have been around for this to happen. He also hasn't completed his required substance abuse or anger management counseling.. And he's reportedly in some really violent gang called Gangster Disciples. OH! And did I mention his dad is currently in jail for 30 years for murder, and his brother is in for drug dealing?! Sounds like quite the family, eh?!

There's lots more information here, as well as some videos too.. All the celebs helping Jennifer out such as Nelly, Ashanti, American Idol colleagues, Sex and the City costars, etc.

We're still thinkin about ya, Jennifer!

love,
elizabethany

ut oh

Another DK member is reportedly flying the coop.

Mrs. Shannon Bex has now left the group, which now only consists of Aundrea and Dawn.. And Dawn has a couple single tracks out sooo...

It's not confirmed by Bad Boy or Diddy or Shannon yet, but it's not looking good.

"All I hope and pray for this whole thing is we still remain the sisters we are. And that the Danity Kane brand stays strong. Whether that means a hiatus for a moment so that we can heal from this and then come back together, I don't know."
--Shannon Bex of Danity Kane


Oh and did I mention that D.Woods and Aubrey are at the bottom of Aundrea AND Dawn's Top Friends on Myspace.. behind all DAY26 members, LorieAnn, Diddy. etc. You KNOWWW THAT'S a big deal!!!

Yikes. This is just no good. I don't know how much hope I have left at this point.

Come onnn girls! Pull it together!!

elizabethany

c-o-o-l

I've always looked at Jamie Foxx as one of the coolest guys ever. And by cool I mean literally cool. Like cool, calm and collected. Fly.

And now he's using the word to describe someone else, so you've GOTTA believe him, right?

He said it about none other than Barack Obama.

"Oprah introduced me to him and I just loved how cool the brother is. We need a cool president. But I'm nervous. You never know how it may turn out. I will have a party if he wins, but it will be a quiet party because we've got a lot of work to do once he gets in there."
--Jamie Foxx


"how cool the brother is..." See! I don't know why but his swagger is just THERE. Ah. Love it.

Welp, if I didn't support Obama before, I sure do now.. Just because you called him cool, Jamie. :)

love,
elizabethany

you will watch this right now

HAHAHAHAHA.

Best video of the day. Week. Maybe even month.



No comment. Except HAAAAHAHAHA.

tunes on tuesday 102808

Time to break out the iPod and add these new songs to it! Or, maybe add them.. :)

Mariah Carey has a new video out! "I Stay In Love".. directed by hubby Nick Cannon! Aww, how cute!

No really though, I kinda like the song. The video isn't bad.. But I haven't decided what makes a video "good" these days. Check it-->




Brandy--> Long Distance



This was on last night's episode of The Hills, AND in my girl Katie's away message this morning.. And I kinda like it. It's for all of you doing long distance relationships, duh. You can do ittt! And you can like this song. I give you the OK. It's pretty, and I support Brandy coming back into the music world.


Lady GaGa ft. Space Cowboy and Flo Rida



Hmmm. I want you guys to tell me how you feel about this.. At the beginning I did not like it at all, but I think it's a good dance song. Good beat and all.. But.. Who's Space Cowboy?!?!?


Christina Aguilera has a video for Keeps Gettin Better now!! Check it out! I feel like it's been forever since we have seen an Xtina video.


Shontelle--> Battle Cry



She's the girl who sings the t-shirt song [and performed for HOT 99.5 last weekend for their Bra's Across DC event!] and she's got a really pretty voice! [Seems unusual these days..] I like this song, but it's exactly my style. It's a song for my ladies! So listen to it, love it, download it, do what you gotta do. :)


Beyonce's video for "If I Were A Boy".. which I personally love-->



This and "Irreplaceable" are the only ones I love from her.. Even if she kinda sorta stole the song. It's an interesting video, too.. But I think I like it; it's cute [until it kinda turns bad]. Again, I don't know what would make me love or hate a video these days in general, unless it was just weird.


I don't have a NoVAnator just yet. Give me a couple more hours. This is just to give you something til you come back.. ;)

See ya then! Hope you enjoy!

love,
elizabethany

well this is awkward

I think this is one of the most awkward but pretty funny interviews David Letterman has done.

He had LC from The Hills on last night.. And it was more of an interview to make fun of every interview The Hills girls have had to do... And making fun of them in general.

I promise, even if you don't like The Hills, you'll like this.. You'll probably even like it more than the super-fans.



HAHA He called her an idiot pretty much. Spencer a weasel. And wanted to know what Brody actually does.. She says he looks good. Ya, we know.

And my goodness, every question he asked or comment he made had that extra great sarcasm behind it. Almost like he knew NOTHING about the show, but knew it was ridiculous. Which is probably the case. She was SO into it, of course.

Oh LC.. Even as a huge fan of you and the show, I think it's time to lay it to rest. It's becoming too much I feel.. And I think everyone else agrees, too.

love,
elizabethany

PS: As much as I think it is all becoming too much, I still would love to BE her.. :) Anyone else with me on that?! I bet so.

videos you need to check out.. NOW.

As you've noticed from today's postings, I'm tending to group up things and not comment as much.. That's because sometimes I just don't need to comment. And I'm here to show you what's worthy of your time, right?!


So click this link, then close your eyes, and tell me what you think it is. Then watch it.



HAHA it's nuts. And hilarious. And terrible. But hilarious.


OMG. This is funny!! HAHAHA! Okay. Again, not funny. Uhhh...


Failed Attempt At Riding Slide Off Roof - Watch more free videos

It needs a "Do Not Try This At Home" tag on it.


This isn't funny or anything.. But it is pretty sweet. Some people are REALLY smart! They programmed their computers so that the screen savers would make it so it looked like a race car was traveling around a track, screen to screen. Just watch. Fast forward to the good stuff if you need to.-->




Hopefully I helped you waste a couple minutes with this post. ;)

morons on monday 102708

So for many of you, Monday is long over. For me, it's still kickin'..

Here are you stupid idiots in the news.. ;)


When you guys are a little.. mm.. frustrated, if you will.. Don't use a pipe to satisfy yourself. You might get your junks stuck in there, have to call the police, and the fire department will have to spend 90 minutes chipping away at the pipe to get it off. I'm not making this up.. It really happened in Newburgh, NY.

Standing in a dark street is never safe or a good idea. Seriously. Not even when your dog gets hit by a car and you want to get out and direct traffic around it. A 19 year old girl in Palm Coast, FL tried this and ended up getting HERSELF hit by a car. Woops.

Lots of people can relate with this lady.. But not many people have gone to the length she has. She had the typical neighbors with the obnoxious dogs that barked all day long.. until she kidnapped it. She took Spike, the dog, and drove him 15 miles away where she then abandoned him. Now she's facing up to a year in jail if convicted for felony possession of stolen property. Can we say not worth it?!

Randomness not about morons, really:
It's time to stop encouraging kids to be smart and have high IQ's. Yea, I said it. A study proved that 10 year old kids, with higher IQ's than normal, have a higher chance in becoming an alcoholic later in life. In fact!: for every 15 point increase, the possibilities for having an alcohol problem increase 1.17 times for men and 1.38 times for women.


Hopefully I don't have to hear about any of you guys in these stories I find one day, eh?

Use that ol noggin of yours every once in a while!

elizabethany

Today's Halloween countdown gives you celebs dressed up in their costumes one week early.

Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale did the whole couple-costume thing and went as an egg and bacon.

Cindy Crawford as Amy Winehouse. Notice the coke under her nose! BAHAHA.

little tidbits for today

Here's some things you need to know, but I don't need to expand on.. ;) Enjoy!

  • Slutbrey O'Day is claiming she and Kanye West recently made out.. Ya okay.
  • Amy Winehouse is back in the hospital again.. With a chest infection. My goodness.
  • Madonna is planning on having a funeral to bury all of ex-husband Guy Ritchie's stuff. That's a little bit too much.
  • High School Musical 3: Senior Year is officially the number 1 movie right now.. pulling in 43 million dollars over the weekend. Big surprise.............
  • Dee Snider of Twisted Sister says that Rock n Roll was killed by none other than Bon Jovi
  • Diddy posed for Vogue magazine with his twin daughters in only bow ties. Nothing else. Inappropriate. [Check it out below.]
  • Country singer Trace Adkins made a comment about how gay marriage "ain't right" at one of his recent concerts. Woopsies.
  • John McCain's brother, Joe, called 911 this weekend because he was stuck in traffic in Alexandria, VA. Wow, he really hates NoVA, eh?

Diddy and his kids posing for Vogue Magazine

Ahh, what a day. What a weekend. I need to catch up.

love,
elizabethany

ummmm.

Question. Pick me.

Great. How old is too old to be having a kid?? Do you think maybe 68 is pushing the limit a bit?

What if you have a 44 and 17 year old son? Think you should have one more?

Welp, Michael Gambon, AKA Dumbledore from Harry Potter thinks it's not a bad idea, apparently. His 43 year old girlfriend is preggers with their second child.

Oh and did I mention he also has a wife of 45 years? Try to keep up with me, here..

"He continues to see his wife and mistress, but is very secretive about both relationships. He may be getting on, but Michael is still a wizard with the ladies."
--Friend of Gambon

Uh. Wow. This is a problem. I wonder how the kid will even come out?! And what do the other siblings say?! Holy cow. This is awkward.

Hey Mister, I don't think you're supposed to have kids over the age of like, 40.. So, uh, let's calm it down please, okay?

love,
elizabethany
"Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time"
-Barack Obama



"My heart and soul goes out to her and the rest of her family. I left a couple of messages for her and I'm just trying to give to her whatever I can. My God. The world is an ugly place right now."
-Randy Jackson

this is so terrible

Over the weekend, Oscar winning actress, American Idol alum, and singer Jennifer Hudson's family was murdered.

As of Friday, her mom and brother had both been shot and killed in their hometown of Chicago. Her mother (Darnell Donerson)'s body was found in her home around 3 pm, after the gunshots were heard around 9am.. but no one thought to call the cops because its "a common thing to hear" in the neighborhood she lived in. Her brother (Jason Hudson)'s body was found a little later. They believe the murderer walked into the house, shooting Jason first, and then kept firing and hit Darnell.

That's not all that happened.

Jennifer got the call from her sister while out promoting her new movie "The Secret Life of Bees," and rushed home to identify the bodies. She then made an important announcement, while staying out of the public eye...

Her 7 year-old nephew, Julian, was also missing since the murder.

"My greatest fear has already happened," she said tearfully. "My greatest hope is for him to come back."
-Julia Hudson, Jennifer's sister and Julian's mom.


Jennifer announced a $100,000 reward for anyone with information on his disappearance.. and police issued an Amber Alert. Bullet casings were found in his bedroom..

The body was just found this morning, around 7am, in a white Suburban.. It's registered as her brother's car.. who was shot. Now all that is left is to identify him.

They have one man in custody, Julia's ex-husband William Balfour, but police say he is only a "person of interest" and is just there for questioning.


Oh.. my goodness. I just.. I don't even know what to say. J.Hud has been living the dream the past couple years since she was on American Idol, then Dreamgirls, getting engaged and so on. For her to have to go through this.. This is the worst tragedy and worst thing anyone could ever imagine.

Everyone just keep her and her family in your prayers right now. They say she's doing OK.. but I don't know how "okay" one can be in this situation.

Hang in there, Jenn.. as much as possible. We love you!

love,
elizabethany

PS: If you're interested, there is TONS more information, videos, random facts.. etc here.

change of heart

So Angelina and Brad have been all "we're not getting married until EVERYONE can" and marriage is "just a piece of paper" since they have been together. They even admit they did it a little backwards and had kids first, but they don't say it's a bad thing. People rush into marriage just to have a kid, according to them.

Well nowww, they're saying they might get married.. Ya know, for the kids.

"Usually people fall in love and everything revolves around the ritual of marriage, children are an afterthought. We did everything backwards. But sooner or later it will be the kids who ask us [to get married]. You know, they see films and start asking questions. Such as, 'Why are Shrek and Fiona married and you're not?'"

--Angelina Jolie



Hmm. I think that's great and all that they're wanting to get married, and that they claim it's for the kids.. But I'm pretty sure it should have happened already. Really? It's just a piece of paper? Yea, maybe, but why not just get married? What are you worried about? I mean, they jumped into the relationship real fast. Had twins pretty quickly. Why not keep the process moving? I don't know.. It just seems weird to me.

Oh, A also claims she's going to be slowing down her workload.. and maybe even quitting! She says her kids are her main priority and that reality is more exciting and adventurous for her now.. that she doesn't need the movies. She even said she has a lot less ambition than she used to!

Yikes. I hope you Angelina fans are okay with this.

elizabethany

in case you missed it

SNL featured not only our favorite Sarah Palin.. I mean, Tina Fey, but also WILL FERRELL as George Dubya Bush.



Quick highlights:
  • Ferrell mentions that the VP is actually more important than the Pres.
  • Tina Fey talks about how her and McCain go shopping. Ha. Get it?
  • Will does Bush's eyes PERFECT. I love it.
  • "A vote for John McCain is a vote for George W. Bush."
I'll be honest.. I always liked SNL, but I never watched it all that much. Ever since this whole election thing, and how great Tina Fey does, I look forward to catching the clips! Of course, they know that too, seeing as they expected their ratings to skyrocket last weekend.

Ahh, whatever will we do once the election is over?!

Take a sigh of relief, probably.

Until then,

love,
elizabethany

Remember when McCain dropped the s-bomb? He dropped another one. This time, I think it's worse. Check it out here.

Uh. Wow. Not good Mr. Presidential candidate.

a different kind of PSA

Sick of the boring and unoriginal PSAs from celebrities? Good thing we have Ron Howard around to change things up... No pun intended.

His PSA features him going back in time to the characters he used to play. (Opie from The Andy Griffith Show, and Richie from Happy Days) He even brings back characters from the shows! Oh yes, that means Fonz and Andy Griffith! :)

Here, relive the good ol days-->

See more Ron Howard videos at Funny or Die


HA! I LOVE seeing them back at it.. They're SO old!!!

Good work, Ron!

underrated celebrities



Every Thursday I post a list, of my own opinion. This week, I present to you the opposite of last week's Overrated Celebrities;


Hollywood's Most Underrated Female Celebrities


10th place Tie: Whitney Port and Blake Lively

OK, some of you are probably like "how can someone from The Hills or a Gossip Girl be UNDERrated?!" Well, that's the thing, they're only known as characters on their show. Finally, Whitney has gotten credit and been given her own show, but before then, she was just in the background of The Hills, and looked at as the normal girl with no drama. [Why should that be bad?!] Blake is one of the main characters on GG, and she's GORGEOUS [her rating may be based on looks alone, I haven't decided yet], but I haven't seen her on lists of hott celebs, really. [Minus AskMen.com putting her at the bottom- #90] They're both beautiful and good people, from what I can tell, and I just feel they deserve more indivudual attention.


9. Vanessa Minnillo

This is another one that is pretty much based on looks alone. Having met her in person, I know that she's just as attractive in real life as she appears on TV, and she actually looks a lot like Jessica Alba, who everyone loves. She's also a celebrity who is down to earth and doesn't flaunt her stuff just to get attention. The TRL host and ET reporter may have made some silly career decisions like "Disaster Movie," but she's certainly not a disaster. And I don't know why so many people criticise Nick Lachey for dating her! I think it's a good thing!


8. Sophia Bush

I'll be honest, I'm not sure where her "rating" stands, but I know I don't see anything about her in lists of "hottest celebrities" or whatever [well, she was all the way down at #86 on AskMen.com], and I need to. The "One Tree Hill" actress was all over magazines and the internet when she was dating Chad Michael Murray, but since then, if you want to see her, you better tune into the CW.


7. Mandy Moore

Out of all the "pop princesses," she's the only one not really in the spotlight anymore, yet she was the most overall talented one. She could sing, she had hits, AND she COULD act! She also lives the life of the girl next door. You don't see her partying naked all over the tabloids or getting married for 55 hours or mistaking tuna for chicken. [Maybe this is the reason, maybe you have to do ridiculous things to stick around.. but that's stupid.] I mean really, when is the last time you heard of her? [Minus "License to Wed".. which didn't do that great, and was out a year and a half ago] It's been a while!


6. Cassie

This is almost purely based on looks. I don't have to say it, the girl is beautiful. I also think she's a great singer, though. She hasn't had an overwhelming amount of hits [I wonder if it has anything to do with how Diddy runs things over at BadBoy??], but she's had good songs like "U and Me" and most recently "Official Girl." She's always just kind of in the background of people's minds, and needs to be brought up more.


5. Kelly Rowland

This is an example of someone who gets overlooked simply because someone close to her gets too much attention. You can't tell me that when you look at the 3 ladies from Destiny's Child that Beyonce beats Kelly. And it's not even about looks! When you look at Kelly, physically and how she handles herself, she's seems so down-to-earth. Her music is/was a little more low-key, but it worked. ["Dilemma" is one of Billboard's Top 100 songs ever!] She's gorgeous, and she may know it, but she doesn't flaunt it.. and THAT makes her WAY more attractive than her fellow bandmate.


4. Kourtney Kardashian

The problem here is that her sister, Kim, another overrated celeb, gets ALL of the publicity. And I don't just mean in general. Kim is looked at as the gorgeous Kardashian girl with the perfect body, perfect life, blah blah blah. I don't buy it. Kourtney is way prettier, and on the show she seems a lot more genuine and "real-person" than her younger sister Kim. It's just one example of the younger sibling getting all of the attention.


3. Jessica Stroup

AKA Silver on the new 90210. If you watch the show, you'll know why. For those of you who don't, she's another one of those pretty, but not too pretty girls. [Minus her struggle with weight right now.. She's SO skinny!] Most of you probably have NO idea who she is, ESPECIALLY if you don't watch the show, and that's a shame. She has been in movies like "Prom Night" and "The Hills Have Eyes II," but she certainly didn't get much credit for them. [And if she did, I don't know about it.] There's not much else to say.. not much I NEED to say, except that shes a beautiful, young, talented actress with little-to-no recognition.


2. Ellen DeGeneres

Okay, a lot of people definitely give her a lot of credit, and the credit she deserves, but it drives me NUTS that when people think talk-show host, they think Oprah.. or sometimes even Tyra! [Both of which should have been on my list last week. Hmmm.] Ellen has the funniest talk show out there today, and it's also useful. She stands for equal rights and just about every important issue out there today. ANYONE AND EVERYONE can love it. She's won Emmy's for it, so in that sense, yes, she's acknowledged, but I think with my generation, she's completely overlooked, and that's not okay. Not to mention the fact that she's beautiful and has the most amazing eyes! [Does this sound like I'm coming on to her??] If you haven't yet, watch a week's worth of her show. If you DON'T fall in love with it/her, I'll be amazed.


1. Tamyra Gray

I could come up with TONS of people from American Idol who didn't win and deserve WAY more credit, but this girl is at the top of my list. She was on Season 1 of AI, before most people even knew it existed, and WAY before people got sick of it, and she ROCKED that stage. She was the one who got kicked off way too early that season. Fans had hope when she got a gig acting on Boston Public and sang her version of "Dance With My Father" [which I like BETTER than Luther's version..]. Then, she disappeared, and no one has heard much since. She is one of the most talented Idols ever, [think of her as Jennifer Hudson, but even better] but few people remember.



I better not have any haters. If I do, fine, state your case. ;)

the countdown continues..

Yiiiikes. Maybe Halloween pranks AREN'T so good sometimes.

Sorry, buddy.

This is another one of my completely random, has nothing to do with anything, posts.. But I saw it on a HOT 99.5 intern's blog, and I thought they were cool, so I'm here to relay it to you. :)

It's cool things to buy for guys, or yourself, or whoever. :)

First.. Everyone knows the leg-lamp in "A Christmas Story".. Why not revolutionize it, if you will, and get gun lamps?


Okay, this is awesome. And I want it. Now. It's a chrome liquor-dispensing keg. Yeah. For the bar-top. Holds a couple bottles of liquor and stays fresh. Looks fresh too!


WHOOO likes weird/different/cool furniture? Welp, if you do, you probably want this. PACMAN FURNITURE! Yeah, awesome, I know. They're like little seats with ottomans as the "food" if you will.. But they puzzle-piece together!


Finally, what's your favorite game system?! If it's the original Nintendo, you're going to love this. A BELT BUCKLE!!! Holy moly. You could remember the "good ol days" every day! [PS it's 10$ off right now.. til tomorrow.]


I'm in love with the last 3. And now I feel like a crazy salesperson. Oh well.

You got anything else great for me?!

Thanks to the fellow intern, Vijay! ;)

love,
elizabethany

HAHAHA... i'm not laughing

Okay, I am. I'm laughing. And you probably will too. Because videos like these, are funny.. As long as they're okay in the end, right?! :)



A kid straight passes out at a wedding.

Oh my. It's been an early morning for me, so when I saw these I chuckled. :)

Please feel free to send me more of the same. :)

elizabethany

do you hear bells?

Wow!

So it's been about a week since Maniston was "officially" back together again, and apparently it had a little something to do bribery and pressure.

There are reports that Jennifer Aniston popped the question to John Mayer.. but not necessarily the conventional way. They're saying that after a bunch of emails, Jen said she'd only take John back if they were going to get married.. And he agreed!!

Well, if this is true, good for them! Good for JEN! If not, hopefully soon?

Good luck, guys! :)

is this really happening?!

Problem: Spending people's donated money on things like clothes and plane tickets.

Bigger problem: Spending 150,000$ of people's donated money on things like clothes and plane tickets.

Biggest problem: All of the above, plus over 13,000$ for hair and make-up, all because you're running for Vice President of the United States.

Yeah, Sarah Palin has spent over $150,000 of the Republican National Committee's money on her WARDROBE. She also spent over $13,000 so that she could hire "So You Think You Can Dance's" make-up artist, FOR A MONTH.

Seriously, SEEEERIOUSLY, this is not okay. Not in my book, anyways.

I understand the money the committees raise are for the campaigning and whatever, but this is.. I don't know.. uncalled for maybe?

Oh and by the way, while being Governor of Alaska, she would constantly buy her kids plane tickets to wherever they wanted, and then charge it to the state's funds. That's tax money, people.

Are there REALLY people out there who are voting for her?! To possibly become the next and first President of the US? [Assuming McCain doesn't make it, of course.] I just can't grasp this. She doesn't seem real to me. It's like she's pranking us, and come Nov. 4th she's going to say YOU GOT PUNK'D!!

Yea, so, if it wasn't clear before, I guess it is now. I'm voting Obama.

Please, Miss Alaska Barbie, save us the time and just tell us we're being punked right now. Why wait?

love,
elizabethany

rich b-words

Oh hey guys, I was just wondering..

If you have a LOT of money that you're not quite sure what to spend it on..

Should you buy a $4.8+ million bra?



Or maybe an all-chrome Mercedes?


Or, maybe, just MAYBE, you want to spend $6.8 million on a license plate. That seems like a good idea.

Yeahh, this is ridiculous. Even if in somehow, some way it IS helping charity, no. This is not okay. None of them.

Please donate your money to ME. That'd be better. :)

love,
elizabethany

PS: thanks milf :)

he's responding

After Sarah Palin's basically record-breaking performance on SNL, Barack Obama and his team are not ready to let her get all the shine.

There are tons of legit rumors going around that Mr. Obama will be on Saturday Night Live again on November 1, just 3 days before the election.

Hmmm... Good or bad timing if it does happen? I'd say good, unless he does a terrible job.

He was on Ellen this morning, too, dancing and cracking jokes about the election and how it's working. He said Michelle can dance better than him, but he's certain that he can dance better than McCain. He also gave a motivational speech for "Clooney Watch '08." [Ellen, now on the Warner Bros lot, is trying to get Clooney on her show any way that she can.] It was a good one.

Really though, what do you think about him possibly being on SNL Nov. 1??

Good luck, B! I'm rooting for you, of course! I hope you can do better than Sarah!

elizabethany
