Hall of Shame #1

Welcome to the Hall of Shame. I just can’t stand it anymore. So many stupid people, so little time.

1. Remember when Angelina Jolie was raked over the coals for appearing cool and stand-offish at the Golden Globes? How the day after Ryan Seacrest and others blasted her in the press for not answering his questions? Well, at the time, I thought she didn’t appear cool, only distracted, as if she hadn’t heard what he said. The video of her made me think she would have rather been somewhere else, but was committed to that appearance and was making the best of it. And you know what? I was RIGHT. It turns out that her mother was in her final stages of her battle with cancer. It has been reported that her mother died this week, confirming that she wasn’t intentionally rude to the nitwit interviewer. Poor Angelina. I’ve been there, I’ve felt the pain of trying to go on with life when one you love is dying. You can’t hardly focus, yet a lot of other people expect you to.

So, shame on Ryan Seacrest who criticized Angelina when in reality, he didn’t have a clue. And shame on the paparazzi who won’t get out of the family’s face even long enough to let them grieve.

2. Shame on the anti-war protesters who defaced the Capitol building this last week. You don’t agree with the war? Fine. Protest. Whatever. But you should be ashamed of yourselves for defacing the Capitol.

3. Shame on the Cartoon Network, nitwits that they are. Did you hear about how they installed those little blinking boxes at major locations in Boston, setting of a terror scare? (click here for entire article.)

Peter Berdovsky, 27, of Arlington, and Sean Stevens, 28, of Charlestown, were arrested Wednesday night on one felony charge of placing a hoax device and one charge of disorderly conduct each, state Attorney General Martha Coakley said.

In a news release announcing Stevens’ arrest, she said the men worked together to place the devices. At an earlier news conference she said Berdovsky had been hired to place the devices.

Highways, bridges and a section of the Charles River were shut down and bomb squads were sent in before authorities declared the devices were harmless.

Kudos though, to the citizens who noticed something that COULD have been real, and taking action.

That’s all for this time. But you can bet, there’ll be a LOT more to come in this category.

  1. Wow, I had not heard that about Angelina Jolie. I was one of the people who thought she was acting weird. What a horrible thing to have to go through, let alone to stand still and look pretty while doing so. I hope Ryan and crew apologized.

    It’s sad, isn’t it, that I keep up with the celebrities while criticizing the medium that feeds me info? 🙂 Not Seacrest though. I’ve never jived with him.

    I saw that interview and I really did not see anything wrong with it, except Seacrest, who looked completely out of his league. I thought Angelina was stepping back, allowing Brad to have the spotlight, as it was him who was the nominee, his film which garnered critical praise. I think Seacrest simply has a personal dislike for Angelina and, when he saw an opportunity to wreck her name in public, he did. Well, now he has eggs on his face, the slimeball. I think he should apologize to Angelina for so publicly bashing her for no reason. Shame on you, Seacrest!

    Yay Abby! That’s a good point, about it being Brad’s work that was up for an award.

    I didn’t see this–it’s the first I’ve heard of it, but dang, how hard it must be to be a convincing actor when you’ve got a personal tragedy going on at home.

    I could never do it.
