Merry Christmas from Lizzie McGuire

Merry Christmas! Or Happy December 25th to those non-celebrating folks.

Raise your hand if you want Disney channel to bring back Lizzie McGuire reruns for Christmas.

*raises hand*

I love that show and will forever be a fan of Hilary Duff even if I never see another thing she does or read a single book she writes. Well, Disney might not be bringing back Lizzie McGuire anytime soon, but here is a Christmas photo of Hilary Duff to make up for that.

@HilaryDuff Happy holidays from the three of us!! @HaylieK what would I do without you and your artistic ways!

That being said, can I just say that it is incredibly weird for me to see pictures of her pregnant. I just keep thinking, "She's still a child! She can't be pregnant!" I don't care if Hilary Duff is in her 20s and married, when I look at her I will always think of the young, klutzy and at times awkward, Lizzie McGuire.

Here is a very poor quality screen shot of one of the final shots from the last episode of Lizzie McGuire.

*tear* I remember that day like it was 10 years ago.

Where Are They Now...Shawn Hunter

I was recently catching up with Rider Strong (ie I was reading his Twitter updates), and he mentioned...

@onthestorm Bullet Magazine asked me to write a piece for their next issue: what I think happened to Shawn Hunter. Not easy but I sent it off last night

Now, I'm not mixing up fictional character Shawn Hunter with live actor Rider Strong, because we already know what happened/is currently going on with Rider Strong; however, we have no idea what happened to Shawn Hunter and the rest of the gang when the curtains fell just as Cory, Topanga, Shawn, and Eric were off to New York. Thus, enter a new segment: you tell me what you think became of the much loved character.

First up, Shawn Hunter.

To get this started, here are some ReTweets that Rider Strong shared based from fans.

@ianthomasfew @onthestorm Mr. Hunter traveled the country in his dad's trailer dominating poetry slams. Angela had lots of babies. The End.

@mdelahanty @onthestorm Shawn went on to become a famous musician and became a heroin addict, robbing Cory & Topanga..ending his life w/an o.d. @ 27

Love them or hate them, and then tell me what you think happened, or what you hope happened.

I Love And Hate Glee

I remember thinking when Glee premiered, "LOVE THIS SHOW!" Then Fox played this great tease on fans by waiting months before the fall premiere and did all that crappy scheduling during American Idol season. Ugh, those jerks. I'm pretty sure the scheduling people at Fox knew exactly what they were doing when they introduced it, took it away, brought it back, took it away again, brought it back ... All the teasing made us want it even more, and now I find myself watching it week after week with friends, despite the fact that I'm utterly disappointed with the characters, the story lines, and the messages the show is sending.

For the record, this post contains spoilers, so if you have not seen the most recent episode and you like surprises, you should probably stop reading.

Let me begin by saying that Coach Beiste is the character I have the least qualms with, and I actually find her story lines to be the most real and relate-able. Expressing your emotions for the first time is hard. Additionally, I find flirting to be awkward, and I generally fail at it in a big way.

That being said... Santana, could you please stop being such a bitch and just get over yourself? I'm not trying to be insensitive to the fact that she is struggling with her sexuality, I merely am so tired of the writers making her more and more mean with each episode. The show tries to be anti-bullying (remember when Kurt felt forced to leave McKinley for his safety last season - the best story line the show produced last season), yet they make their characters into the most unlikable and harshest bullies I have ever seen. The worst part is that, every time Santana has an "Awwww" moment, later in that episode or by the next episode, she has reverted back to her "I hate everyone except Brittany" personality that totally isolates her from the group.

Then there is Quinn. The poor teen mom who gave her daughter up for adoption and now is trying to steal her daughter back, and will do anything, including plant false evidence, to make that happen. Yeah, umm...great role model.

As for the adoptive mother of Quinn's baby, Ms. Corcoran, aka Rachel Berry's biological mother, this thing you are doing with Puck, NOT OK! Seriously? What is with shows promoting student teacher relations that are way inappropriate? Anyone seen Pretty Little Liars? That show has another student-teacher relationship story line and I'm just trying to understand when THAT became so common that it is now included on hit Teen shows. I mean, Mr. Schu is already pushing the line with student teacher relations the way he coaches, but at least he has stood firm on the no dating or sexual relations with a student rule.

Ok, and can we rewind to when Artie got waaaaaaaaay to power hunger as director and straight out told Rachel and Blaine that they need to lose their virginity if they ever want to be successful in West Side Story. Not good advice! Furthermore, asking a teacher at your school if she is a virgin, NOT OK! Shesh, these shows are confusing the role of teacher and friend and can I say that, as an educator, the two are not the same. Teachers are not suppose to be your friend, they are an adult that you respect and hopefully trust, but they are not your friend. Teachers that try too hard to be friends with their students end up losing control of the class, I see it every week.

Man, I miss the 90s. Remember how cute it was that Cory and Topanga waited until they were married to shack up, and how totally ok that show made it? Today, if you are a virgin in high school, let alone a virgin into your adult life, there is something wrong with you.

Shows like Glee, The Secret Life of An American Teenager, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, 90210, blah blah blah, they set horrible examples. They portray parents incapable of taking care of themselves let alone their teenagers, teenagers killing and then not facing consequences, teachers who date students, sex, sex, sex. There was not that much sex going on at my high school, seriously. Though, the teacher/student inappropriate relations that did happen, but still, it wasn't glorified, it destroyed families and people's career.

I would like to see the 90s return to TV. People were less Hollywood/more normal looking, more relate-able, and just overall better people. I watch them as adults and I still want to be their friend.

Bob Miley Has Another Drug Scandal

As you may or may not know, Miley Cyrus had a fantabulous birthday a couple weeks ago and new BFF Kelly Osbourne hosted the event for the now old and wise 19-year-old. Can you believe how fast our little Hannah Montana has grown?

Unfortch, I couldn't make the event because I'm not in any of the Hollywood It-crowds (shocking, I know). Well one of the guests who is "supposedly" Miley's friend (or maybe he/she is a professional party crasher/celebrity rumor-mill worker) posted a video from the event where Miley seems to insinuate a love of pot. In reference to to her Bob Marley cake, Miley laughed, "You know you’re a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake. You know you smoke way too much [wash yo mouth out with soup Ms. Cyrus] weed!" Then Ms. Osbourne remarks, "I thought salvia was your problem," a reference to a hil-a-rious video of Miley partaking in some legal drugs. Everyone at the party laughed and it was a jolly good time.

Well friends, drugs are no joke and therefore no laughing matter.

Since it wouldn't be November without some Cyrus related drama, people are attacking the video and the message it sends to Miley's young fans. Phesh, as if young people care about her anymore. They have probably already moved onto the next Disney sitcom. It is the adults who care because we like to judge other people.

Well, I just want you all to know, IT WAS A JOKE! Miley doesn't really smoke weed, though there is video of her puffing salvia so you can't deny that. Thank Twitter for Twitter! Kelly Osbourne took to Twitter to defend Miley

let me make something very clear after @MileyCyrus salvia incident we started calling her bob miley as a JOKE! the cake was also A JOKE! it makes me sick that @MileyCyrus so called 'friends' would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not! u guys if @MileyCyrus is not recording/filming/touring she is works everyday how could she possible do all that if she was a stoner! #think

Ok y'all! Think before you judge next time.

A Day In The Life Of Me

This is what normally happens throughout my day...

Me, reading Twitter, "I should totally write a blog about this." "I HAVE to share this picture." And, "that Evanna Lynch is too funny. I could dedicate a whole blog to her tweets."

Then I browse some of my usual entertainment news sites, "Love this, must share." "I wondered what became of him/her, I wonder if I can dig up more and share." And "Funny videos, I love funny videos!"

It is all quite fun and lovely. Then I sit down and think about writing and, because the selections are so numerous, I start to re-evaluate what I found funny at 1am the night before. I reconsider in an attempt to narrow the field. Suddenly, nothing is interesting anymore.

In school, I always hated when a teacher did not provide a topic for us (the students) to write and a well defined rubric to follow. That pattern follows me into real life. Here are posts I wrote for SocialiteLife.

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes take their love to Paris.

Reese Witherspoon takes her family to Disneyland.

Cory Monteith plays the role of Grand Marshal for Grey Cup Parade.

sidenote: did you know Canadians play a sport other than hockey? Today I learned football is also played and viewed, though it is no where near the popularity of hockey.

second sidenote: I accidently typed hickey and not hockey the first time I typed that.

third sidenote: Blogger keeps telling me accidently is spelled wrong and the number one suggestion to replace it is confidently. So...I confidently typed hickey and not hockey the first time I typed that.

Eureka Convention

On Saturday, I went to "Creation Entertainment Salutes Eureka and Warehouse 13" at the Marriott. Two conventions in less than one month *gasp* my nerdyness reaches new heights.

Instead of boring you with some long winded post on how my day went, I shall use pictures. I'm gonna go ahead and assume you all have watched Eureka, especially after I recommended it months ago, so please enjoy these photos of Niall Matter (no relation to Tow Mater), Colin Ferguson, and Deborah Farentino. There may or may not be some exaggeration in my details.

Scene 1:
The story begins when Niall takes questions from the audience, and he spots me.

Me: *tries to be cool and sound intelligent* Yes, well I remember Salli mentioning at Comic-con that she often went to Colin for help with understanding the technical terms in dialogue and the science behind the machines. Do you do any research on your lines, and if so what?
Niall stares intently
Me: Whew, is it hot in here or is that just me?
Niall: You are making this room hot.

Moderator: Well time is up, we must now clear the room for the next Q&A
Niall: damn you moderator *shakes fist in air*

Scene 2:
The evil Beverly Barlowe enters the room

Me: Yes, what was it like to kiss Colin?
Deborah: Honestly, I can't remember. That day was like a hazy dream. I love Colin.
Me: Stay away from Colin or I'll tell your husband!

Scene 3:
Colin enters the room

Niall couldn't stay away

Niall: Colin, you are so not the ladies man.

Me: Who was your favorite guest star and/or who would have been your dream actor or actress to work with?
Colin and Niall: You.

Me: Please, please, don't fight over me.

Breaking Dawn Part I Premiere!!!!

Tonight is the Black Carpet Premiere of Breaking Dawn Part I!

On this momentous day, I reminiscence...

Hard to believe that it was just two years ago that J and I showed our true Twilight colors by going to Westwood to hang outside Bruin - Westwood Village for the New Moon premiere.

And this is what I saw...

Of course, my shining moment was when this happened.

Doesn't matter how much I pretended to be cool, like this event was no big deal because I live in California and I've seen plenty of celebs, the moment Robert Pattinson passed, shaking hands and signing autographs, me and everyone around me lost it. I would have been scared for my life had I not been freaking out like a silly little girl.

Well, today is the "Black Carpet" Premiere of Breaking Dawn Part I, and I am currently covering the premiere from the comfort of my home. Way more comfortable and less time consuming, yet lacks the adrenaline and energy of the carpet premiere.

Check out photos and news from the event at where I will be.

More All That Reunion Panel

Remember that time I went to the All That Reunion Panel at Comikaze? Yeah, that thing was all kinds of awesome. I posted videos to my youtube, you should check them out :)

Also, the moderator from the event compiled some videos from the panel and the autograph signing that basically lets you pretend you were there. Check out the video by BlackNerdyComedy

I love Josh Server, and isn't he looking all kinds of hot in his Gap cardigan? I don't actually know if it is Gap, but I went to Gap this weekend and saw a very similar cardigan and thought, "That mannequin ain't got the style Josh Server has." Then I got to fantisizing about how our family would look...

Our oldest boy is Walter the Earboy and our baby girl is Detective Dan(ielle). Aren't we adorbs?

It's 11/11/11 11:11, celebrate with Harry Potter!

In honor of DVD/blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II (it's today, y'all!), some of the stars of the franchise are heading to Florida for a little family reunion.

Since I know most of you aren't in Orlando for the fabulous reunion, I bring you great news! You can watch the red carpet reunion from Wizarding World of Harry Potter, thanks to E!.

You can also check Twitter for pictures from some of the cast that will be at the event. My personal favorite is Evanna Lynch who plays Luna Lovegood. Not only is she a Pottermore Gryffindor which bascially makes us family, she is also appears delightfully entertaining and down-to-earth.

@Evy_Lynch Just got to the hotel!!! Look at all the free shit WB/universal gave me!!! Pottering myself out!!! #yeahfreeshit

See, even famous people love free stuff and get excited over Harry Potter merch. Evanna and I could totes be bff.

@Evy_Lynch I'm hooooooome!!!

I wish I was hooooooome!!! Alas, I shall live vicariously for now.

Here are some other tweets from her to support my statement of her being "delightfully entertaining and down-to-earth"

@Evy_LynchAnd Chamber of Secrets is on ABC. Aaaaaaand I'm totes watching it. You should all do likewise. #HarryPotterWeekend

@Evy_LynchApproximately 98% full of butterbeer. :) #IheartOrlando

AND, a final picture from Katie Leung (Cho Chang)

@kt_leung So...just popped along to the wand shop this afternoon. As you do

Have a great Harry Potter weekend! Do something fabulous for 11.11.11.

Thrilling Adventure Hour, November 5

Dreams do come true!

Last weekend, between Comikaze, Angel and I had a wonderful evening at the theatre. The show for the night, Thrilling Adventure Hour, a 1940s radio-style show that had us laughing the better part of the evening. Best of all, it was done in musical format! What could be more awesome than people randomly bursting out in song? It's like High School Musical for adults, but with no dancing since it is radio.

Now, it is radio-style, but the audience still gets to see the performers interact and the fabulous orchestra perform. It is radio in the sense that set design is non existent, the show involves people gathering around a few mics on stage, and best of all you can sit at home and enjoy the show via podcast. Podcasts for Thrilling Adventure Hour are available at one of my favorite places,

The show features a bevy of actors and actresses as regular cast, including John diMaggio who voices Bender on Futurama, plus each month they book different guest performers. A semi-regular guest performer happens to be Nathan Fillion, Angel's true love.

In the November 5 show, He plays a young man smitten with his gal, Red (played by Busy Phillips). The two are adorable! Have I mentioned how much I love things that embody the 1940s-1960s? I'm talking the family dinner, Pleasantville, Grease, Wonder Years kind of stuff. I. LOVE. IT. So basically, this show is meant for me.

Fabulous point from the show, The Wonder Years reference in Act 2's Beyond Belief segement. Sad note, Fred Savage was a previously confirmed guest star, but a couple weeks before it was sadly announced that he and another would not be able to make the show. On the other hand, Jason Ritter did play a delightful Kevin Arnold-ish character.

So beautiful. If he was my child's teacher, I would SO date him. That is, assuming I am unattached. And he is unattached. I ain't no homewrecker.

Other performers we stalked to photograph:
Simon Helberg

Linda Cardellini (who happens to be an adorable pregnant woman)

And, in the audience, Jane Espenson
I met Jane Espenson at Comic-Con when I was in line for the Joss Whedon signing, and I basically decided at that moment that she is awesome. She was awesome long before than, but I didn't really know of her existence until then and she was a seriously down-to-earth, giddy about science fiction person, and I loved it. Check her out on IMDb and discover the awesome writer/producer that is: Jane Espenson.

I have already purchased our tickets to the December show, featuring guests Nathan Fillion, Josh Molina, Colin Hanks, and Gillian Jacobs. *whhheeeeeeee*

Who Loves Orange Soda?

Kel loves orange soda.
Is it true?
I do, I do, I dooooOOOO!

Oh snaps! Check me out with Kel Mitchell. Admit it, you're jealous. Go ahead, photoshop your head over mine and pretend like it is you. Imagine Kel telling you "Kel loves orange soda!" and then experience pure joy when he signs your orange soda bottle.

Let me be honest, I was completely unprepared for the All That reunion and autograph signing on day 1 of Comikaze. I had nothing to get signed (as if I don't have an old Tiger Beat pin up of the cast buried in my closet) and the $10 a person signing is a steep price for one whose hourly wage is less than that. Also, I was basically giddy with tween emotions, I was a total fool. Oh, and Josh Server sporting that preppy cardigan had me drooling all over the place.

However, for day 2, I came prepared to meet and impress Kel, who was there promoting Asia Lee. And that I did. Other fans were totally jealous they didn't think of bringing orange soda for Kel to sign, I heard them oooh-ing and aaah-ing when I pulled out the bottle.

Then, when the photo time came, I insisted on taking the photo myself despite Asia Lee's offer. I have had practice with this, don't worry, I got this covered. Kel was impressed with my ability, he told me so, which obviously means he loves me and wants me to have his orange soda loving babies.

And look at how lovely that family will be.

Notice the Ed from Good Burger look, so dreamy <3

I Want To Marry Josh Server

Daylight Savings is providing me one extra hour of sleep tonight! However, before I take back the hour I lost last Spring, here is a video you might enjoy from today.

In case you lived without cable as a child, I hope that song sounds very familiar to you. Today I witnessed the All That reunion at Comikaze in Los Angeles and it was fabulous. More details later.

- Candace Cameron Bure is supposedly in a future episode, thus forming a near Full House reunion

Justin Bieber Baby Scandal

Rather than recounting the ridiculous allegations and story behind the supposed Justin Bieber paternity scandal, I shall let Jimmy Fallon do the talking. Watch "(It's not my) Baby" and giggle over the sillyness of it all.

And, in case you are wondering, here is Justin Bieber's reaction to the rumors:
@JustinBieber "so Im going to ignore the rumors...and focus on what is real. an opportunity to help by doing what i love. Judge me on the music! Love yall!"

Now, I like to believe the accused is innocent until proven guilty so I'm gonna assume this is some desperate girls attempt at fame and fortune until there is some legit evidence. Like, a baby picture that features a young child with side swooped bangs, or a video of the baby singing "Baby" will suffice.

What do you think, did JB father a child?

Neil Patrick Harris + gorgeous David Burtka + babies = adorable!

Time for an adorable picture of the Neil Patrick Harris family in costume!

Seriously, that hubby/boyfriend/baby daddy of NPH is gorgeous. Like, I love NPH, but when I see David Burtka I think, "woah! That man makes NPH look average!"

Who Am I?

In honor of Monday being Halloween, Tuesday being All Saints Day, and today being All Souls' Day, we have a special Who Am I? :O

Guess the famous face under the face paint!

Don't let the paint scare you, I'm pretty sure the man beneath the paint is a quite lovely person and you probably crushed on him at some point, especially in your high school years. He stole my heart when he took Jamie Sullivan to the stateline. Gah! Tears erupt just thinking of that movie :,(

He currently stars on a CW drama (CW drama is redundant, I know) in which he plays some character I don't know because I haven't watched the CW in a very long time. However, I do know that Devon Sawa has guest starred on the show and the two have a very obvious bromance over Twitter.

Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Following Her Heart

As you have probably heard, the fairy tale of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries was too good to be true. It's not their fault, not everyone can be Khloe and Lamar.

All joking aside, Kim wrote a message to her fans on her blog explaining why she did what she did and assuring her fans that it was all for love, not money. Also, she answers the very important question, what is gonna happen with all those wedding gifts?

A Message To My Fans
November 1, 2011
This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.

I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!

Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.

I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.

There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.

I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am.

What do you think?

Netflix Time Wasters, The Wonder Years

Oh little Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper, how your 12-year-old romance makes me smile.

A few weeks ago, I discovered The Wonders Years had been added to Netflix's Instant Queue. I immediately celebrated.

I forgot how much I love Fred Savage, and how great this show is until I started watching it again on Netflix. The Winnie and Kevin young love is just too adorable at times. Fortunately, romance aside, the show is a great reflection of how I imagine the late 1960s and early 1970s to be. From Kevin's hippie older sister to his stern and unsmiling father, everything about this show is charming and quaint. In fact, I imagine that, had I grown up in the 1960s/1970s, my family would look very much the same.

Here is how I see it: my older and younger sisters would be hippies (despite the general typecasting of me as the hippie in this family) because they are rebellious and quirky, respectively, which fits Karen Arnold; my older and younger brother are stellar in the role of pestering and annoying brother, so they were really made for the role of Wayne Arnold; my dad was raised in the military so he can successfully play stern and he rarely smiles, he is like a modern day Jack Arnold; lastly, as a teacher in California, my mom is currently unemployed so she is getting great practice as the stay-at-home mom/wife, hello Mrs. Arnold! Obviously, I'd be a female version of Kevin because this is my life so only I could have the starring the role. It'd be like if Winnie were Kevin and then Kevin were Winnie.

I forget what my point was with that last bit...To conclude, The Wonders Years is one show definitely worthy of consuming your evenings before bed and your freetime on the weekends.

Hilary Duff and The Case of The Killer Heels

Despite the title of this post, nobody in this post was killed by heels or Hilary Duff. Rather, this post calls to question the footwear choice of the pregnant Hilary Duff while grocery shopping.

via Twitter @HilaryDuff

Is this woman crazy?! Who goes grocery shopping in heels?

I don't even wear shoes like that on the 2 days a year I get out my fancy clothes (trips to Magic Castle). On the contrary, I stick to 2 inch heels without stiletto and/or platform; yet my feet are begging for release from that prison before the night is even finished.

Grant it, my heels by whatever brand is available at Ross at the date of purchase are very likely crappy compared to the designer brands the celebs wear, but I doubt the shoes Mrs. Comrie-Duff is wearing can provide the comfort and ease offered by Keds, Reef flip-flops, or TOMS (my shoes of choice).


Oh women, how you love pain and beauty.

Kevin Richardson To Rejoin Backstreet Boys?

What the what?!

US Magazine is reporting that Kevin Richardson, the fifth member of the Backstreet Boys who left several years ago to pursue other things (ie having a family and performing on Broadway), will be joining his former band-matesgroup-mates in December when they set sail for their second Backstreet Boys cruise.

This news would be about 100x more exciting if I was going on the cruise, but none the less, it still is fabulous news. Of course, him joining them for the cruise does not equate to him joining the group again. However, it is a step in the right direction, and Kevin has not ruled out the possibility, even mentioning to Ryan Seacrest
"I would love to perform with them again on a more regular basis. Our chemistry when we come together just feels like old times."
Dear Kevin,

Please re-join the Backstreet Boys. Then, next summer, y'all should tour. Might I suggest tickets to said concert go on sale at a point in time in which I have money in my bank account.

Guess Who...

Guess who...

Once a child actor, he now works mostly behind the cameras, including directing episodes for such series as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the Emmy awarded winning Modern Family (note: the above picture was tweeted by a star of Modern Family).

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from a snooty junior university, but I can't hold that against him because he starred in my absolute favorite movie of all time. I can't hate someone connected to that masterpiece, even if I don't agree with the choices he makes as an adult.

Still not sure? Well you might have been just a little too young to remember his most popular television role, but you will definitely remember his brother. He even directed some episodes of his brothers famous T.G.I.F. show that also starred her.

Who is this?

Sidenote: He happens to be scheduled to appear on the Thrilling Adventure Hour in November that my fabulous friend got us tickets to. Eep! So excited :D

I Love Darren Criss

Oh well, here is some beautiful Darren Criss to help you through the next couple weeks.

Brenda Song To Wed, Probably Without Baby

The Disney almost-princess (she never actually had her own show, so she is whatever is beneath a princess. I'm American, so I don't have to know what that royal business is) Brenda Song is gonna wed her future baby's daddy, Trace Cyrus. Remember in August when people went cray-cray over Brenda Song pregnancy rumors? Well those rumors were probably false so those cray-cray look even more cray-cray. Overreacting over false allegations, phesh, silly people.

Well, Song and Cyrus are now engaged! It was even confirmed by Trace on his personal twitter, and later by sister Miley.

Congrats to Trace Cyrus and Brenda Song and the use of social media to announce big things.


Emma Watson Sends Greetings From Oxford

You know I'm a sucker for Harry Potter related stories, and so here is another one specifically written just for me you.

Emma Watson is back to school. In March of this year, Emma announced she was taking a break from her studies at Brown to focus on her career. In celeb terms, this usually means, "peace out homies, school is for fools!" However, Ms. Granger Watson is having none of that and she is now back to her University studies. The setting has changed since Watson is beginning a semester abroad at Oxford, but she has stated she hopes to complete her studies at Brown.

A semester abroad? Who is this person, former-British child star worth millions OR typical college student?

Here is a message and photo shared by Emma via her official website.

New Message from Emma
16 October 2011

To Everyone who is starting a New School Year, (sorry those who have been at school for a while Oxford starts late)

Just to say have a great term and good luck with all your work.
You might not hear from me for a while because I will be really busy studying but I wanted to just say hi and bye : )

Hope you all like 'My Week with Marilyn' and i'll keep you posted on 'Perks'.

Love Emma xx

(Please see a picture in the slideshow on the right hand side of the page).

Matthew Lewis In Vegas

I weep.

I had a productive Saturday spent promoting Issue 2 or The Gryffindor Daily Prophet (check it out) and restructuring the nargles out of the Showbiz Department. I was feeling pumped. I was like boom, boom, boom! *pats self on back* "CC, you are awesomebeans!"

With Midnight approaching, I set aside my work to have a quick peek at Twitter before calling it a night. *Enter sadness*

Twitter welcomed me with this tweet from MFH:

@Mattdavelewis: I'm in Las Vegas. Tonight I think we're hitting a club called Pure. Anybody been?
Tears erupt (metaphorically, that is).

Why? Why did I not see this tweet 6 hours ago when there was totes enough time to hop in my car and drive to Vegas for this stalking opportunity? Furthermore, why have I not been to Vegas in over a year? Where has life taken me?

So many questions to ponder.

Demi Lovato And Her Goofy Hat

It has been a while since I posted on someone not related to Harry Potter or my teenage dreams. I apologize for the lack of diversity, but I like what I like and I'm not ashamed of that.

But...even I like a break from the norm every so often, and so I give you a Demi Lovato update. I suppose technically this is predictable since I do have quite an archive on Demi Lovato posts.


Demi tweeted the above photo on Friday with the caption: "Favorite thing about traveling... Goofy souvenirs :D "

I love to see how great she is doing. She seems so happy and young, just before the picture she tweeted about eating a blue ring pop and susbsequently discovering herself to have a blue month and toungue saying, "Man this is embarrassing." I love that down-to-earth, eaveryday girl vibe she emits. And she is just so stickin' beautiful.

Demi has been pretty busy promoting her new album, Unbroken, and tickets to her mini tour A Special Night with Demi Lovato went on sale Friday. Girlfriend has come a long way since her emotional crash last October on tour with the JoBros. Love to see the growth and strength.

Don't forget to listen to the emotional first single, Skyscraper.

Always rooting for Demi.

Teen Icon Revisited...JTT!

Alright y'all, your life is about to get totally exciting because you can now stalk follow Jonathan Taylor Thomas (JTT) on Twitter! And what a great time to join, what with The Lion King 3D in theatres and Tim Allen back on TV, it's like the stars have aleigned for a JTT comeback!

Now, his tweets have not exposed any fabulous news of a comeback, yet. However, I would like to point out that 1/3 of his current tweets are messages to other 90s icons; it's like my childhood Tiger Beat collection is totally going viral.

Notice the Danielle Fishel tweet? He also tweeted something to Devon Sawa which basically makes me feel like I'm 12 years old watching those two in Wild America.

I'm hoping for some juicy details on a reburgeoning acting career. Will get back to you with details later. *fingers crossed*

Matthew Lewis Is My Future Husband

I've missed blogging.

Fortunately, one of my classes has just ended and suddenly my evenings have opened :D

So here is one of my favorite wizards to bring in this new wave of posts.

Don't you just melt when you see that half grin smile? So, My Future Husband (MFH) posts a lot about some British teams and sport I don't understand, but I have recently asked a Brit to translate the tweets so that MFH and I might share a bond over it, so I'll keep you posted. For now, let me explain that the picture is of him holding some cup/trophy that some team from some sport won. Capisci?

Notice that celebratory beer by his foot? That was accompanied by many more, me thinks, and my poor wittle Mafew woke up with a hangover. The night before presenting at an awards show is probably not the best night to party hard, but when your team wins how can you resist?

The next day Matt presented with Tom Felton at the British, Radio 1 Teen Awards. And after the event he tweeted the following:
Bloody hell, there were thousands of you. And you're really loud. I specifically told you I was hungover. Cheers for the reception though. X
Man, how I likey this one.

In other news, Matt took to Twitter last week to discuss puberty.
I'm still confused as to why people keep talking about me and puberty in the same sentence. I'm 22. Ta
Umm...duh, because those fake teeth in Harry Potter hid your post-puberty gorgeousness from us.

Matt continued by explaining: "No, no, no. Puberty made me greasy and miserable. At 14. The gym and my dentist were kind to me. At 22. Getz?"

And...since we are on the topic puberty...

"Don't eff with Topangs"

Do you know why September 24, 1993 is such an important day?

It was the premiere of Boy Meets World. In other words, it was the day your life changed forever.

I don't believe that is an overstatement. Even if you didn't start watching the show at the time because you were 6 or 7 and thus most likely too young to appreciate it, chances are you spent many Friday nights perched on the couch glued to the TGIF line-up as a pre-teen, so you became VERY familiar with the lives of Cory, Topanga, and Shawn. I will even go so far as to say that you probably secretly dreamed of having Mr. Feeny as a neighbor/principal/teacher/professor. Oh yes, the man of way too many hats would have been a lovely addition to any life, right?

So did you celebrate yesterday, the 18 anniversary of when Boy Meets World premiered, by doing anything special or memorable?

No you say?! How could you forget such an anniversary? For shame.

Well, although you might have gone about yesterday like every other day, Danielle Fishel celebrated the anniversary of the day her life changed forever by getting into a fight at a rock concert! Huzzah! Wow, September 24 is like a really special day in her life.

This is one of those moments I love Twitter and the obsession people have with using it to post the deets of their life.

So, what happened? What could cause the loveable Topanga to snap and throw a fist at a stranger? Well, the answer is hair pulling coupled with threats of "effing" her up. And I quote (via Twitter):

"Ok...deets from last nights fight. 2 girls in front of us, SITTING DOWN at a rock show, got mad because my bf (it helps the story if you picture Cory Matthews as said bf) bumped into the back of their Chairs. They stood up & got in his face, i stepped in front of him & said "what's your problem?" Chick said "don't eff with me "topanga, i Will eff you up" & then pulled my hair. So i clocked her in the face. Hard. She started crying and security threw them out. My first fight!"

And...caption the photo: "I swear to God, i just got into a fist fight with a girl. Don't eff with Topangs, i will punch your lights out."

Oh Topanga, you are so badass.

Maggie Smith wins an Emmy

The Emmy's happened today and the lovely Maggie Smith walked away with an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries for her work in Downtown Abbey.

This is cause for celebration. Chocolate Frogs for everyone! And Butterbeers, all around!

Baby Gryffindor says, "Rawr!" Which roughly translated means: "We love you Professor McGonagall! Congratulations on the win!"

This win is very convenient as I was looking for a way to justify posting one of the adorable Gryffindor inspired pictures I took of my nephew.

Thank you Maggie Smith for making that possible. And you're welcome ahead of time for the smiles this picture induced.
