Quick Pats of Butter: Betty, Mel and Pee Wee
Bettymania shows no signs of letting up, despite skirting the boundaries of overexposure. White’s new show Hot in Cleveland is getting notice, though it’s generally not the kind one wishes for a slap dash vehicle fueled by the power of Betty White’s unstoppable 3rd act. Now comes word that the ubiquitous vampire franchise – which is doing just fine sans Betty – Twilight wants to tap into the tremendous cultural currency of Ms. White. Now, I am all about some Betty White, but at some point the phenomena will reach saturation and the eventually backlash will began. Remember, once we were all bonks about Clara of “Where’s the beef?” fame, but audiences got tired of that, after it was run into the ground.
Speaking of folks who need to be run into the ground Mel Gibson has struck again. Offending the Jewish people and beholders of sugar tits, simply wasn’t enough for this drunken, abusive crackpot. He went for the triple crown. Radar got some juicy dirt on the aging sociopath’s latest performance piece:
“You’re an embarrassment to me,” Mel tells her at one point.
“You look like a f***ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault.”
Okay then! Anyone want to wager which blactor will be sitting next to Mel across the desk from Larry King or on the couch with Oprah? I don’t think it’ll be Glover. Isn’t he still in jail on a trumped up civil disobedience do gooder charge? Decades ago after watching Lethal Weapon, La Mommie said, “I don’t think he’s [Gibson] acting.”
An Judd Apatow has decided there ought to be a Pee Wee Herman film.
“Let’s face it, the world needs more Pee-wee Herman,” Apatow told Variety
I’m gonna go ahead and take a hot bag of, “no thanks!” on that.
