Favourite Friday: July 27 Edition

July 27, 2012

Ally:Let’s get right into it.

Favourite Unfavourite: The Kristen Stewart Apology

I love celebrity gossip. The Blake and Leo debaucle? Loved it even though I hated it. There comes a point however, where it gets icky for me. The Kristen Stewart cheating “scandal” delivered the icks. Personally, I do not need to hear an apology from a 22 year old actress for making out with her boss in a parking lot. I didn’t know what to say! Was she waiting for me to be like, “It’s cool, I’ll still watch the next Twilight” (even though  I  won’t)? It was awkward.

Listen, Kiki, spend your time writing a handwritten note to your married director’s wife, or trying to get RPatz to answer your texts. The apology itself…woah…I have to agree with those who are questioning whether a publicist approved this . To me, it looks like she released it independently. Why? BECAUSE SHE IS 22 AND AT RISK OF HER BOYFRIEND LEAVING HER. Whatever her publicist was ill advising, I have no doubt that Tom Cruise’s publicity team was doing a lot of this all yesterday:


I mean, even though I’m 108 years old, I do remember what I was doing when I was 22, and what I was doing was not making good decisions.

Peace sign? Peace out to that effing outfit is what.

I had an exchange on the Twitter with a friend of mine last evening around the judging harshly of a 22 y/o’s mistakes. My line in the sand is that I can make fun of you for your awful taste in clothing (Miley Cyrus), but I can’t hate on your romantic life mistakes.

As such, let’s move on to my next Favourite.

Favourite Plea for a remake of Pretty Woman if I ever saw one



First off, it’s July. Secondly, it’s July. Why are you wearing thigh-high boots, Miley? Answer me! Thirdly, if I was going to do a Who Wore it Best for this look, I’d have to give it to Paisley.

Parenting is a mixed bag, folks. Sometimes you come up with winners for a mom and dad and sometimes you’re Little Paisley. God Speed my tiny friend.

Favourite Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!

Official Unpaid Guest Blogger Eden is in town with her family, and she’s coming for lasagna (I’m writing this on Thursday prior to her arrival). I can only hope the result will be a lot of self photos of the two of us making duck faces or any of the alternatives as outlined here:

Favourite More Kate Moss Awesomeness!

I love Kate Moss everything.


Kate Moss! Rag & Bone!


No one has more swagger than Kate Moss. Not even Justin Bieber! The above outfit is so beautiful it makes me question the education fund I’ve established for my child. Who needs “school” when mommy needs a pair of leather shorts?

Favourite Best Moment of Life

You all are familiar with Lainey at Lainey Gossip, yes? You read her blog, correct? But you don’t “hang out” with her do you? No? We do. That’s right. Lainey will be in town on Monday night for an intimate evening to kick off her Faculty of Celebrity Studies tour. She’s even going to appoint a valedictorian! In case you’re wondering, that person is going to be me.

My admiration for Lainey is best described through the following video. I can only hope that she picks me up and cuddles me the same way Justin Bieber cares for and respects this little fan.


Crappy Pop Video of the Week: I love you, Usher, but whaaaaat?

Seriously, I do enjoy Usher. I listen to him on the frequent. I’m not sure how I missed the following song, maybe because once it was released it sailed right into the Museum of Inappropriate Sexy Talk. I’m not sure what I would do if I came home and my husband was giving me the wink with this jam in the background. Quietly back away? Not make eye contact? Sit back and enjoy, “Daddy’s Home”.


L-A: Oh sweet merciful, Usher. What is that? That is not sexy. Not even a little bit. Daddy’s home is reserved for small children, not for sexytimes. You should realize you’ve pushed the limits of bad pop music when even Ally can’t get on board with that.

Okay, favouritestime:

1. #Sethspotting


Still no sightings, but hope springs eternal my friends. I should eat out more often. Although, that’s not really doable as my cat is out to break my bank account (dental work AND hyperthyroid. This is my second hyperthyroid cat. Which, quite frankly, is bullshit). But long story short, I am going to see Seth Cohen. And of course, we’ll totally be friends.

2. Lyrics from this song I’ve shared with you five times already.

 They say

Never fall in love with a celebrity.

It’s just weird  and it’s wrong, except with you and me.

I think that totally applies to Seth Cohen and I. He can do kickflips in my dreams any day (that is totally more song lyrics).

3. Kristen Stewart, I got your back.

Ally may be my lobster, but I’ve got your back on this K.Stew. Save the public apologies. You don’t owe anyone (other than R.Patz and the wife) anything. The only thing you need to say to the public, both adoring and otherwise?

You can just leave it at that while you sort your shit out.

Also, in an art imitates life sort of moment, I was reminded by Ryan McNutt of Adventureland. It stars super cute Jesse Eisenberg and K.Stew’s character sleeps with an older married man. Y’all should check it out.

4. I would almost like doing dishes if my tea towel were this cute:

Seriously you guys. This is the best. I need to go buy one ASAP.

5. Trailer on the radar

I propose we get a box of wine and go watch this when it hits theatres.

I mean. Lizzy Caplan + Adam Scott? Insies.

6. Six days until Torontotime!

Oui! Going to hang with the husband, some friends, some severe humidity and some wine. Do not expect favourites from me next Friday because that is it. Sadly, my original shopping plans have been seriously curtailed by aforementioned cat. I really wish she responded to guilt trips. Kickstarter campaign for shopping trips? Is that a thing? And if it is, how fast can we make it happen? Because I think I need something cute to wear to the Lainey show on Monday.

    Sorry, Ally, but I’m going to be valedictorian at the Faculty of Celebrity Studies. I’ll let you hold my ceremonial mace, because I intend to be magnanimous in victory.

    Oh, ha ha, that’s cute, Krista. Really cute. It’s on, bitch.

      Girl, I’m going to beat you so bad you’ll need a shoehorn to put your hat on. (Trash talk liberated from Muhammad Ali).

        And also, I’m just gonna be a busy lookin’ around to see who’s gonna finish second (inspired by Larry Bird circa 1986).

          Girl, get your popcorn ready, ’cause I’m gonna put on a show.

            “”You couldn’t make your fans throw up their hands if they swallowed their fingers”. I’d tell you where this line came from, but it’s between me and Lainey. We share things. Like Pretend Boyfriends we’re ashamed of.

    Best part of that Usher video? It looks like his bodyguard kisses him on the cheek on the roof about 20 seconds in.
