Hi, what are you looking for?

Columns/Features

The 89th Academy Awards RANT!

The time is 4:45 and I’m at my Homegirl Claire’s apartment (she’s got a big screen TV with stereo sound) where we’ve just begun to drink and have a nosh.

We just turned on E! (Where I’m sure they’ve been at it since noon east coast time) and what do we see…it’s ROSS, the funny Queen who owes Jay Leno his career – remember when he made fun of him on The Tonight Show? He was “Ross The Intern” back then, fat, insecure, somewhat closeted, and seemingly very clueless.

BUT LOOK AT HIM NOW, he’s thin, living his life, and in a designer tux from head to toe, and giggling through it all, GOOD FOR YOU ROSS, you’ve come a long way baby!

Oh shit, here he is with some young gal, killing time in the worst way…creating an Oscar acceptance speech via a MAD LIB (someone get Fallon on the line!)

Ugh, the result

MIND NUMBING

Oh boy…A FASHION SEGMENT!

It’s the blonde girl again, with Brad what’s-his-face from the Rachel Zoe reality show, AND the very interesting Makeup Artist, Jeffrey Star. They’re wonking on and on about some Drag that Brad picked, and the makeup Jeffrey did to match.

YAWN

Okay, I’m gonna get something to eat now. And I might need some booze.

Okay,

We are back, and so is Ryan Seacrest!

THE STARS ARE ARRIVING ON THE RED CARPET!

This stopped me in my tracks

Apparently she just gave birth to triplets yesterday, or a few weeks ago.

This is how she used to look…

More fashion, Fashion, FASHION!

Janelle Monae!

Great dress but PUT A DAMNED BRA ON!

Okay, so Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are announcing Best Picture, La La Land

Everyone claps, the director, cast, etc all all go to the stage -the producer starts to give the acceptance speech, after a minute or so, random guys with headset mics start walking around on the stage – people with Oscars in their hands are looking confused…the second guy is giving his speech, and I see a guy snatch an envelope from Warren, lots of confusion, then I hear,

“Sorry, there’s been a mistake – Moonlight won”

HOLY SHIT!

People’s faces are CRACKED AND ON THE GROUND, gobsmacked and shocked – LOTS OF CONFUSION!

Then Warren is about to explain what happened…here, just watch the videos (thank you Claire for having a DVR!)

I’m still shocked and wondering who’s ass is being handed to them right now, WHOAAAA!

Get Price Waterhouse on the line!

Okay, now it’s REALLY OVER.

Oh, don’t forget to look at this when you have a chance… @HalleBerryHair

SEE YOU IN 2018!
