A Little Me A Little Celebrity!

I've been dying to tell you all the details of our trip but work has completely consumed me.   It's been a pretty tough few weeks in fact and it's made me rethink my priorities.  More on that later!  Once this work project is over I'll get back to posting a lot more often.

For now, I wanted to leave you with an update on Conan and a tell you about a little cat fight and how I'm connected to it!

Conan just announced that he is doing a 30 city comedy tour called The Legally Prohibited From Being On Television Tour (is that hilarious or what?) and apparently he is not going to be making any money from the tour, he's only doing it to keep the members of this former show working for a while longer!

I knew I liked him for a reason.  He is just decent and funny to boot!

And on a much sillier and cattier note, apparently there is a big feud between Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stranger and Real Housewives of NY Bethenny Frankel.  I'm not sure of all the details but there is some name calling going on over Patti's friend Jill Zarin from the Housewives show.

I don't watch either show (although I have seen a few minutes of each show in years past), but the reason I bring it up is that I actually "met" Bethenny a few months ago and she made quite an impression on me.

I was in NY for the Sherlock Holmes premier (I know, how fancy of me...but I was just a guest of a friend of a friend) and while standing in the lobby of my friend's apartment building I saw Bethenny walk in with her dog.  Since we were in a small lobby facing each other, I smiled and said "hi, how are you?"  Honestly, I didn't even realize who she was at first.  I thought it was someone I knew because her face was familiar.  Well, she looked at me with what can only be described as a mixture of indifference and disdain.  It was so rude.  I asked my friend about it and she said that Bethenny had just moved into the building and was already giving people the nose up attitude.  These reality TV people are just ridiculous.

That's my media news for today! :)


  1. I have a SERIOUS love for Bravo's shows. LOVE LOVE me some Bethenny and Jill. PS I heard the coco DC show is already sold out! I'm going to Chelsea Handler in a couple weekends - couldn't be more excited! Oh, well the fact that I have Millionair Matchmaker and RHW of NYC on the DVR for the weekend is pretty banging too :)

  2. Drama! What a hoot. Doesn't surprise me in the slightest, your interaction with Bethanny... I used to like her well enough on that show--she's kind of in the middle in a range of insanity--but I think the whole thing has really gone to her head. The NY version of Housewives is the only one I've indulged in and unfortunately, it's a guilty pleasure... Thanks for sharing your little piece of the drama. Now I have to go google the feud...

  3. i love conan too and how perfectly classic is that tour name?!?!

  4. NY Housewives (and Millionaire Matchmaker on occasion) is a guilty pleasure of mine as well. I used to really like Bethenny and Jill but now all of them are just ... way too much. Fun in very very small doses :)

  5. Oh - that's a good one! I've never gotten into the housewife shows either (except for the few Atlanta episodes I saw when I was away for a weekend) but I see BF all over the place. Honestly - I don't understand her celebrity at all. I also think she looks far older than she is (probably the lines are her face that can't be helped - but also the skinniness that makes her look kind of haggard).
