I worked from home yesterday, which means I had Bravo on in the background all day. Which means I got to catch up with the lovely and bizarrely accented Rosie Pope and her band of charmingly crazy preggo ladies. But this season’s debut episode featured perhaps one of the worst dudes on record: Fritz. Fritz, I’m coming for you. Fritz, who along with his wife Christina, is an “esoteric performance artist entrepreneur,” was adamant that his wife go out into the woods and give birth against a tree somewhere.

As you might imagine, his wife was less than convinced that this was a good idea, but acquiesced to his decision not to have a hospital birth.

“That’s all me up there. I don’t need a stunt ass. I would regret it for the rest of my life if I was in a male stripper movie and didn’t get up there and strip myself. At first it was scary as hell, but then it became like a drug and I couldn’t wait to do it again.”
-Matthew McConaughey tells the Advocate about his big striptease in the upcoming movie “Magic Mike.” Apparently the scene wasn’t even in the script initially, but thanks to Matthew’s enthusiasm, it because the dirtiest dance of the movie. “It had to be wonderfully filthy,” he says. [People]
It might just be that I happen to own to highly evolved cats (hello Colonel Mustard and Pony), but it really sounds like this unhappy cat is saying “I don’t want it.” As in, I don’t want to go to the vet you stupid, stupid lady why are you making me? I’m inclined to agree with him. [YouTube]
The man who taught several generations about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll is hosting this week’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Sadly, Mick Jagger’s probably got less of a drug problem these days than certain other recent hosts who shall remain nameless. [Pop Culture Brain]
