    I don’t think one can get too much Betty White.
    Mad Men, the best drama from US after Battlestar Galactica found its way to Earth.
    Omarion – never heard of him, but based on his pics great body.

    It took this long for you see that the Ad for MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” campaign features male couple being married.

  3. Paul R says

    I love Betty White, but I think she may be right here.

    As for Mad Men, it’s renewal is a surprise to precisely no one! Thank goodness; best drama on TV.

    Isn’t David Beckham too old to be having children again? What about all those drugs he’s taken over the years (I don’t care if they were prescribed)? What selfish people they are for not adopting their children when so many orphaned children are in need! This is obviously just another fashion accessory because the parents are celebrities and only self-centered attention seekers.

    Oops, I thought it was about Elton John….Never mind.

    she may be right? Christ, she was making a joke. Go away for a “little while” at 88?! You can’t be sarcastic anymore because of da peoples. It was funny, too.

    I agree with Paul R about Betty White because I enjoy her enormously and would hate to see her career end on the note of being a “potty mouthed” old woman spouting things you don’t expect her to…simply because she will and most TV writers are uncreative as hell and rely on the same hackneyed tropes. Going away for a “little while” could be all of 3 months, and in any case she still has a TV show. Not to mention, she’s in excellent health. I want her to keep going strong for decades.

    Still, the schtick of senior citizens cursing has gotten really tiresome, though she does it with far more elan than most. But she could do better. It’s *slightly* comparable to why Silver Silverman, a FAR less talented performer, stopped being even remotely watchable ages ago where once she showed a hint of promise. A one-note tune.
