There is a new AMAZING show on VH1 called:  Confessions of a Teen Idol.

I accidental stumbled upon it the other and WOW.   VH1 has done it again.  I just love their ridiculous programming.  You really can’t get better than Brett Michaels in his bandannas deciding which stripper he’ll give his heart to.  But then he’s not sure if he can fall for a stripper again since “a dancer” as he calls it, broke his heart once and that’s what inspired Every Rose Has it’s Thorn. They just have this knack for finding people who are willing to take themselves way too seriously and exploit that on national tv.

But Confessions of a Teen Idol is hosted by Scott Baio.  At the beginning and end of each episode he does this Doogey Howser wrap up about the pit falls of fame and wanting that limelight again.  The show is just about former teen idols trying to get themselves back in show business.  Check out the cast list:

1)Guy from the Blue Lagoon

2) Guy from TJ Hooker

3) Guy from Fame

4) Jeremy Jackson from Baywatch

5) David Chokochy from Baywatch

6) Eric Neis from Real World New York and The Grind

7) Jamie Walters from Beverly Hill 90210


You might remember him from his hit single “How do you Talk To An Angel.”  He was also Donna’s bf, Ray on 90210.  Please see the below clip to job your memory

Isnt’ that a really beautiful song about Donna?  Ok, here’s what happened on 90210.  Ray comes into town with his guitar and flannel shirts and sweeps Donna off her feet.  Then he throws her down some stairs, he pushes her against the wall, and he sleeps with Valerie.  DRAMA.  but he from the wrong side of the tracks. He couldn’t deal with Donna being all spoiled and stuff.  It wasn’t his fault!

But now Jamie Walters is a dad and doesn’t necessarily even want  to be in the public eye.  He’s happy just being a dude and hanging with his kids.  However, during one of their group therapy sessions they helped him realize how happy he would be doing what he loved the most – music.

cue How do you talk to an angel

If you’re like me, you immediately went to your itunes and tried to find this song so you could listen to it while you did your billing or planning.  But OH NOOOOO IT’S NOT ON ITUNES AND IT’S NOT UNDER JAMIE WALTERS.  In order to find this song for download, you need to go to Amazon.com and look under the band The Heights.  The Heights was a 90210 spin off that lasted for 12 episodes according to IMDB.  I think I had that song on cassette as a little girl.  I dubbed it off the radio and would listen to it before bed.

Man, I love Jamie Walters.

Elvis and Me (Bess)

I told you 2009 would be the year I blogged more.

Yesterday was Elvis’s birthday. You may not know this about me but I actually really like Elvis. I even made Mom and Dad take me to Graceland 2 Januaries ago when we had a layover in Memphis. We were only in Memphis for maybe 4 hours but we had time for the ENTIRE Graceland tour and some bbq.

In honor of Elvis’s yesterday birthday, here is photo of me admiring him in Graceland.


He was at one point on my top 10 list (young Elvis about the time he was in war). My infatuation has to do with my love for the TV movie Elvis and Me. The movie is all about Priscilla’s relationship with Elvis. As a young girl it was very inspriational to see that as an adoring fan I too could get the most famous musician to fall in love with me. I used to watch the movie with Carrie. She loved it and I loved anything that she or Adam loved because I wanted to be cool so desperately.

Elvis and me is awesome. I tried to find a clip on youtube but I could only find some lame fan videos.


Mad mad mad

I’m into Mad Men this year.  The show has always had incredible buzz.  I thought that I might like it considering it has great fashion and takes place in the ad world.

All those things are true and reasons why I like the show.  But… my big take away from the show is Don Draper.  He has that quality that you can’t quite put your finger on, but you’d really like to.

I mean look at him.

He’s very Old Hollywood looking to me.  I get that Carey Grant in Philadelphia Story vibe from him.  I think it’s the calm confidence.

Let’s be honest, he’s also really good looking.

Also, he even makes smoking look like the right thing to do.

He carries the show.  He does things (like cheat on his wife) but you can’t help but like him for it.  I love flawed characters.  They’re much more interesting.  He’s also very mysterious which adds to his appeal.

I like to think of the show as it would apply to our agency.  Each person on the show I equate to someone in my office.  Granted, I don’t think there is really a strong correlation besides we work in the same industry, but that’s just a minor detail.

I decide I want to be Joan, the red head.  I like her mainly because she takes charge in the office, but she’s very womanly.  And he clothes are hot.

Anyway… Moral of the story.  Mad Men is a very good show and I can’t wait till Sunday to see what happens.  Does Don Draper stay in LA?  What happens to his family?

Top Ten

Woot Woot! Here is blog entry #1. This blog will be dedicated to things I like. Since my life is pretty boring and uneventful, I decided my opinions will make for better reading. Things I like could range from celebrities, tv shows, movies, books, magazines, people, etc. Who knows…

The First thing I like: Top Ten List

Since freshman year of college, I have kept a top ten list of celebrities I most want in the throws of passion. This list has gone through countless revisions. Some have been staples since list one. Others (like Joel Madden) only stayed on the list for a week.

Here is the most current list (keep in mind that time and space are no issue):

1) Leo DiCaprio – I have loved him since middle school. I have to admit that my initial attraction was based on his awesome hair in Romeo and Juliet. However, as I have matured, I now appreicate him not only for his great hair, but his talent and ability to pick excellent movies. This combination of raw sexuality and talent secures him a spot at #1which he has held for over year.

2) Jake Gyllenhaul – I really like his scruff and Donnie Darko

3) Michael Cera – He is easily the most controversial member of the list. But there is something about him. Perhaps it is because he is almost as awkward as I am, or when he sang “These Eyes” in Superbad, it sounded like angels singing. If anyone doubts his right to be on this list, check out his webisodes of Clark and Michael, and I think you’ll be converted. http://www.clarkandmichael.com/

4) Seth Rogen – After watching Knocked Up I kept thinking how lucky Kathrine Heigl was. Oh if only I could be lucky enough to have a charming stoner knock me up.

5) Chef Tom Colicchio – He can cook, he gives that sly look when he talks on Top Chef. FOX

6) John Krasinski – Name one girl who doesn’t want Jim Halpert. I can’t think of anyone. And John went to Brown so not only is he sexy, he’s smart.

7) Gael Garcia Bernal – talented, latino, sexy, done

8)  Collin Farrell – dirty, hot, accent

9) Clark Gable – In Gone With the Wind in our Southern mansion as he carries me up the grand staircase

10) Prince Harry – By far the hottest royal. Also has a knack for trouble… I like it!
