When will Jessica learn?

This makes me cringe. I mean, if she is truly that happy, good for her. But I wonder what Tony thinks about this? For some reason I feel like we will be soon seeing a picture of her and Tony Romo on the cover of People with those big slash marks between the two of them. I guess this is all to promote her new album but I have a feeling she is going to regret this cover story.

Williams v. Manning

It's a commercial but kinda cute!

DWTS read my mind!

I recently commented to my friend "Madame McTuffy" that I would love to see ballroom dancers from So You Think You Can Dance make the move to Dancing with the Stars as one of the professional dancers.

Well, it looks like it is going to happen!

Dancing with the Stars announced their new line-up today for Season 7 which will premiere on September 22nd. There are three new professional dancers - one of whom is Miss Lacey Schwimmer! She will be paired with Lance Bass from N Sync, or more recently, My Life on the D-List.

The rest of the line-up:

  • Celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff
  • Beach volleyball Olympian, Misty May-Treanor, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Track star Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke
  • Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo
  • Kim Kardashian and Mark Ballas
  • Cody Linley (Hannah Montana) and Julianne Hough
  • Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas (Mark's father and a World Latin Champion)
  • Ted McGinley and new pro Inna Brayer (current U.S. Amateur 10 Dance Champion)
  • Brooke Burke and Derek Hough
  • Jeff Ross (TV's "celebrity roastmaster general") and Edyta Sliwinska
  • Warren Sapp (football) and Kym Johnson
  • Susan Lucci and Tony Dovolani

David Beckham's appearance at the Olympics' closing ceremony...

... felt kind of random, right? I mean, you've got Leona Lewis rockin' out with Jimmy Page and then David Beckham rises from the stage at the end - I thought he was going to join in! But no, he just kicked a soccer ball to the crowd. (He appears around the 2:50 mark in the video clip below.)

Anyway, I wasn't too impressed by London's "teaser" performance - hopefully, in four years they can come up with some better entertainment for us. I mean, China did raise the bar pretty high!

Bye bye Olympics - it was so fun having you here!

Random Youtube video I found entertaining

Is it possible that Miss Britney will redeem herself?

So I just caught some of the new promos for the MTV VMA awards with Britney Spears and I am quite hopeful that she is back on track with her life. I think she looks great - fit and everything.

I don't know if she's performing at this year's show, but if she does, I sincerely hope she can make up for last year's disaster.

(Watch how Britney squirms from Russell... pretty funny)

I've Got Olympic Fever

I didn't really pay much attention to the events leading up to the Olympics (other than the marathon events) but now that it's here - I'm fully on board!

I thought the opening ceremony was pretty cool. And it was so exciting to see Phelps win his first gold of these games on that 400m medley. I love that little green world record line that was chasing him to the finish - it had me on the edge of my seat! But that picture above - watching Phelps celebrate their win in the 400m relay had me crackin' up. And c'mon France, no more trash talking, OK?

I also watched the men's basketball team beat China so it was interesting to see them play China with Yao Ming. (On a random note, and I know this sounds crazy - does Yao Ming kinda sorta in a really remote way remind you of Tom Brady?) And you know, I'm no Bush fan but I think it is cute to see the President at the various events.

Today I caught some of women's gymnastics. I know they had a lot of out of bound moments during the floor exercise, but I was so fascinated with how they were able to line themselves up so precisely against the lines without looking. Silly, yes.

Anyway, it's now after midnight ... I wish they would air the events on the west coast simultaneously with the east coast. Like they do with the Oscars! It would be awesome to catch all the exciting stuff and be done by 9PM.

iTunes Update: Rihanna, Pussycat Dolls, Enur

I needed some new tunes for my running mix so I downloaded these three:

Rihanna - Disturbia: Rihanna's my girl - I've downloaded a bunch of songs from her current album ("Please Don't Stop the Music" is still one of my favorites). Rihanna also inspired me to chop off my hair :) I didn't think much of this song at first but it's grown on me after hearing it on the radio multiple times - this is the first time I've seen the video. Kinda weird!

Pussycat Dolls - When I Grow Up: I heard this on So You Think You Can Dance - it's catchy. By the way, is anyone else surprised that Nicole Scherzinger's solo career didn't really take off?

Enur - Calabria: I got this one from the Target commercial with the two young girls that seem to have a dance battle as they decorate their apartment. FYI - Yahoo Answers has been very helpful in finding the names of songs from commercials.
