It’s Red for Jen

For a fake reporter, such as myself, it’s heartening to know that even during sluggish times in New Mexico Entertainment news I can always count on our friends in the trenches to provide light, yet important fair regarding our state’s coveted celebrity guests.

Like the crack news team, lauded world-wide for bringing you the details on President Barack Obama’s Chile plate preference, I can announce to you today that America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston, recently ordered herself up a plate of….RED!

A girl’s gotta eat right? These are the kinds of facts I like to know about our superstar guests, this and the other widely spreading word on the trail that Ms. Aniston is just as awesome, unpretentious and kind to all those around her as we’ve all heard she is.

Aniston is in town for just a little while longer wrapping-up her latest film, “We’re the Millers” co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and New Mexico, USA standing-in for Arizona and Old Mexico.

Escándaloso Ranger – New Mexico Style

Posted by on February 27, 2012 | 2 comments

Between dueling chopper shots* of a mysterious and remote set, to our own ABC** affiliate broadcasting their interview with the New Mexico extras casting director for The Lone Ranger (record scratch…aka “Silver Bullet” – worst kept secret in town btw and there’s a lot of ‘em) Disney’s The Lone Ranger continues kicking-up dust in the New Mexico desert like no other production before it has.

You may recall this whole extravaganza kicked-off when this was the shoot that almost never was, but director, producer and stars alike dug in their boot heels and made it happen. Salary cuts and budget wrangling aside The Lone Ranger will likely continue to spur controversy right up until its DVD/Blu-ray™ release.

The film has already landed on apocalyptic predictions lists as possibly being “the last movie you’ll ever see“, as its first estimated premiere date aligns with the Mayan calendar’s forecast of the end of the world.

So while Marvel’s** entire crew of mighty Avengers were able to sweep in and out of town with ~less ruckus than TLR has had thus far, don’t count the masked man, his loyal sidekick or New Mexico out of the controversial headlines for the duration of filming.

Why, even our little space here on the web has been hit with a trickling trail of fury when this blogger chose to publish these pics sent in to us of some rather generic western props – leading to some healthy industry banter?

“Shame on you for posting this! Is your purpose to support the NM film industry and the local New Mexican’s [sic] it employees [sic] or are you one of the weak links in the chain that will cause what remains of the NM film industry to most certainly disappear?” – fb comment

“It must be pictures like these that drove them away from Hollywood….”
– Industry Journalist

Wielding this kind of power delusion to stir-up such controversy, perhaps this blogger can now lead the charge in the next round of TLR Escándalo:

One of the most hotly contested debates from the word “Yo” on this project was the casting of the still smoldering Johnny Depp as Tonto.

While this touch of Chinese, Mexican girl with smatterings of alleged Native American and Irish descent can appreciate the demand to cast true to race, the bigger picture on this big picture is clear, and that is that hundreds of many races now have a chance at work on this sure to be blockbuster New Mexico production (unlike this lost production – but I’m the one running film out of NM).

BUT MOREOVER – The smoking (pun intended) hot Armie Hammer, who’s cast as The Lone Ranger himself, IS NOT FROM TEXAS!

The LONE RANGER was written as a Texas cowboy qué no? Boy is from L.A. Escándaloso up!

*KRQE did it first
**Parent co. Disney

The Ipecac of our Generation

Posted by on August 21, 2011 | 2 comments

Just as a follow-up post we felt compelled to share the details of what a fame-whore celebrity can earn turning the trick called her wedding.

Here, ad nauseam are the figures for what a “reality star” earns for such a spectacle:

Well over $17 MILLION!

$2.5 million for People Magazine photo exclusive, $15+ million for the forthcoming four-hour, two-part wedding special on E! Entertainment Television.

These numbers don’t include the comped if not paid endorsements for the promotion of venues, merchants and product placements.

Ahh, holy matrimony.

We’ll try to refrain from Kardashian posts in the future unless and until prenuptial agreement details become pertinent, you know as a follow-up. Or…in the unlikely event that these millions of dollars find themselves being used in a philanthropic or even remotely useful turn back to society.

ICYDK: Syrup of ipecac (play /ˈɪpɨkæk/), commonly referred to as ipecac, is derived from the dried rhizome and roots of the ipecacuanha plant, and is a well known emetic (substance used to induce vomiting).

Got. Your. Period.

Posted by on August 13, 2011 | Comments Off

 
As with the advent, and subsequent hyper-overuse of emoticons, I was at first resistant to the trend of using a “period” between every word for emphasis. However I now fully embrace the use of these non-verbal intonations.

In fact, I’m a bit of a ;) slut, but it’s only because I have so many amazingly wonderful online contacts who have me wanting to throw winks their way like a saucy southern flight attendant.

So, rock the drama of a period. Between. each. word. But don’t incessantly use the 90s dramatic buzz word “surreal“, the Anistonized “uncool” or hurl the most played-out, contemporary comfort phrase of our time, “no worries“, at me. Ever.

Your OMGs, LOLs, and esp. your LMFAOs are always welcome! xo

And p.s. I ain’t no English major, but I KNOW a lot of y’all join me in going batty over this one:

Who Wore it Best: Incognito Edition

Posted by on July 27, 2011 | Comments Off

Back in the day this look could get a cook damn near executed…and back when these two polar opposite actresses played equally different sisters apartment pants were all the rage (not really).

Here both ladies are sporting new accessories – Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon with her husband, Hollywood Agent Jim Toth and Jennifer (1shot) Aniston with her latest boyfriend, actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux show us what the new airport chic looks like from both ends of the celebrity totem pole.

So the next time your incognito needs an update remember, new man, classic shades and the airport scarf are IN.

QOTD: Deux Sided Coin Edition

Posted by on March 31, 2011 | One comment

Rihanna with her varying array of luscious red velvet hair and the queen of on-screen seeyounexttuesday-tressness, Kim Cattrall have alternate views of the blogosphere.

As lifted directly from the web pages of the greatest poet of our time, Michael K., who spun his beauteous yarns of word weaving around what Page Six recently encountered, Cattrall had this among other things to say about modern-day career choice of blah, blah, blah blogging:

“What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want [or] care about.”

On the otra side of this virtual coin, I’ve cried countless times into my afternoon cocktail over what my beloved red velvet head had to say on the same topic a few moons ago:

“I still read the blogs sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out. I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is. It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities. It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer.”

Gees! Generalize much…Salt to wound she said this to one of my favorite class of peeps, the coveted Radio DJ – specifically Ed Lover of NYC.

And now because re-reading and posting Ri’s harsh words render me temporarily unable to wallow in my self hatred dance around to my favorite Rihanna song…I’ll leave you with this bag of sads for the eyes and ears: (if you close your eyes maybe you can see Rihanna stepping on my black hair while whipping and lording her magical red hair over me and my broken dreams)

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall – New Mexico is for Coupling! So much so that Han Solo chose to finally make Ally McBeal his bride here and the pretty birdie now known as Black Swantastic is betrothed AND knocked-up after catching smootches with her on and off screen love interest in the Fe as we brought you here

The WORST

Posted by on November 17, 2010 | Comments Off

From the sublime in entertaiNMent to the absurd…have you ever wondered what the reigning “most annoying sound in the world” is since Jim Carrey made the concept famous in 1994’s Dumb and Dumber?

Well, you need look no further than this morning’s episode of the View (shocking, I know).  And this is supposed to be a spotlight focused on the talent of their behind the scenes staff & crew.

This stuff needs to stay behind the scenes, que no? But it may serve a purpose as one of the three components to World Peace…though you may find, like me, a much stronger hatred aversion to these women than toward any babies…

Enjoy, I mean annoy…

Absolutely Superfluous: Et tu Kim K. Edition

Posted by on October 4, 2010 | Comments Off

“She USED to be an extremely beautiful woman. But she’s running a race that no one can beat .. aging.” – angelleindisguise196

The comment above is not about Kim K., but(t) it may soon apply – Kim is only ’bout to be 30 years old and me thinks the naturally gorgeous Armenian may be experimenting with facial sculpture.

What do you think? Is she messing around with mother nature or is that just a butt load of bronzer and whacked-out fur lash appliqué gone wild?

At least ‘Cilla and Rourke started fighting their battles later in life. AngelleinDisguise is quoted from her comment left on the awesomeness that is the Mistress of Morph’s channel where you can find gems like these!

UPDATE 1/26/11: According to multiple outlets, including the LA Times, Penny and Javie have welcomed a son into the world! ¡Felicidades!


Penny Cruz/Javier Bardem/Progeny Projections

Besides both having starred in New Mexico movies (All the Pretty Horses & No Country for Old Men) and a pair of Oscars between them…

Penelope “I told my father we were lovers,” Cruz and Javier “Friendo” Bardem have congealed their DNA and now the world wonders what that co-mingling will yield.

Thanks to the fun and good times found at Morph Thing we have a visual guesstimate of the {adorbs} offspring soon to be and down the road.
Congratulations & best wishes!

Here’s Bardem (below) in Spain last night, with NM res. Julia Roberts for the Eat Pray Love premiere, fielding a rush of questions re: the “very happy” news! – via the Daily News/Getty Images
