It’s no mistake that the Critics’ Choice Awards come the day after the People’s Choice Awards. Celebs who don’t win the popular vote can drown their sorrows in the idea that perhaps, perhaps the critics adore them. But while the People’s Choice was a slightly less formal affair, the Critics, well, the Critics we dress up for. Find out who fared well and who critically missed the mark…
Lover of butter, endorser of the deep-fried everything, daytime drinker Paula Deen has revealed that she can’t eat her own fatty foods anymore. The 64-year-old chef has admitted that she suffers from Type-2 diabetes. I guess this means no more deep fried mac n’ cheese recipes. No more butter tower photo ops. And no more endorsing cheesecake as a breakfast food. Deen has allegedly signed on to be a spokeswoman for the diabetes drug Novartis. [How convenient, waiting to reveal her diagnosis until she could make a buck off it. -- Editor] I guess she’s going to have to re-brand herself as a healthy chef now. I’m glad she’ll be eating healthy and hopefully encouraging the country to do the same, but some small part of me will miss watching her eat fried Twinkies. [The Daily]
A few days ago, The Roots’ Questlove was on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” and he started some beef with Tina Fey, claiming that whenever she’s on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” she’s kind of not very friendly. Tina, being awesome, wanted to address this as quickly as possible, so she appeared on the show last night and resolved to squash their beef by ceremoniously chowing down on Ye Olde Hoagie of Forgiveness.
For those of you who aren’t from Philadelphia, a hoagie is a sandwich, and it is delicious. And Tina Fey’s impression of the Philadelphian accent is pretty much spot on. I won’t keep you in suspense: the sharing of the Hoagie of Forgiveness seemed to work like a charm. Perhaps it can be employed in other similar beefs? Say, peace in the Middle East? What if we made it Kosher? [Hulu]
“When someone says something negative about my face or body I will always and forever just completely lose my shit, because I have so much hatred in me, a violence that lies just beneath the surface of my delightfully illustrated skin. Being called ugly and fat and disgusting to look at from the time I could barely understand what the words meant has scarred me so deep inside that I have learned to hunt, stalk, claim, own and defend my own loveliness and my image of myself as stunningly gorgeous with a ruthlessness and a defensiveness that I fear for anyone who casually or jokingly questions it, as my anger and rage combined with my intense and fearsome command of words create insults meant to maim, kill and destroy.”
– Margaret Cho defends her profanity-laden Twitter tirade yesterday in a post on her blog. Cho had posted photos of some new tattoos she got on her ass and when she received a couple of nasty responses, she went off, prompting some of her other followers to say she was out of line. I think Cho has the right to post photos of her new tattoos. I think assholes have the right to call her nasty names. And I think she has the right to tear them a new one. I think she does that exceptionally well in the full blog post, which you can read here. [via Jezebel and NYMag.com]
