I’ve returned from my week long vacation in the Catskills and I am sad to report that it was not a Dirty Dancing-esque summer. One day it will happen I swear. In other news, after being completely isolated from any celebrity news or movie watching for one week, I had a few shocks when I returned to NJ.
1. Brad and Jen are finalizing their divorce. I, like any other stalkerazzi in training (SIT?), wonder when Brangelina will come out as an item. I mean they were spotted in Canada at some dinosaur museum.
2. Chelsea is really Georgia. (That’s Days of Our Lives reference.)
3. Hillary Duff’s greatest hits album, “Most Wanted” is number one on the Billboard charts. I’m by far not the biggest music buff in the world but even I know that is wrong on so many levels
4. Brock Peters, who played Tom Robinson in To Kill a Mockingbird and starred in other great movies such as Carmen and Porgy and Bess, passed away on August 23. He was also a huge part of the sci-fi genre, with roles in Star Trek and the voice of Darth Vader on NPR. Peters was an important actor who most people probably haven’t heard of or know of his work beyond TKAM. (It’s a shame how that happens). I think his death is far more important than the three items I listed before.
