Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides = Another Blockbuster For Disney with Johnny Depp

Looking up on Hollywood Blvd, Johnny Depp is Larger Than Life. Depp has to be one of the most talented and likable actors on the planet. He is also one of the most successful. Johnny Depp is a rare and unique mix of talent, looks, charm, charisma, sexiness and fuckability. Most women (and men) find him devilishly attractive.

Christian Louboutin Party - KAT Smashed The Videos

Ok, I had FUN last night. The Christian Louboutin Party hosted by Brad Goreski was all the rage. Besides the amazing shoes and boots, the food, the champagne and the wait staff as well as the staff were MARVELOUS. The company was entertaining to say the least. I will add pix later but here is a sampling of the videos...
A quick look inside with Bobby Trendy...

KAT & JB play Romeo & Juliet...

A Jamaican sings me a song...

And then he "spits" more knowledge...

THE VOICE Victorious on Virgin Viewing Slays DWTS and Glee

The new NBC TV show THE VOICE (with judges Adam Levine (shown above), Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton debuted with nearly 12 million viewers according to the Hollywood Reporter. "Dancing With The Stars" aka DWTS (ABC) followed in second and "GLEE" (FOX) was in third.
Makes one wonder about the recent antics of two of THE VOICE's star judges who got into trouble and then got some press for it. Cee Lo who recently stormed off Coachella stages according to reports and Christina Aguilera’s trouble with the law regarding public intoxication and her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler arrested for DUI. After much sensation, later it was determined that he was under the the legal limit for a crime and the charges were dropped.
Recently, the talented Christina Aguilera was out at the Abbey to be inducted to the Gay Hall of Fame with much media fanfare. Perfect timing a week before the premiere episode of "THE VOICE."
With the recent machinations of "DWTS" (having) and "American Idol" (allowing) castaway Pia Toscano on the show to sing, it is easy to surmise that it was a ploy to draw viewers away from the new competition. Well according to the ratings, the tactic backfired and NBC looks like it has a hit in THE VOICE.
American Idol was created by Simon Fuller and starred Simon Cowell until he moved on to "The X Factor" (which Cee Lo has said he turned down Cowell's requests for him to judge) and Simon Cowell's other franchises "America's Got Talent" which follows the success of "Britain's Got Talent". and American Idol is produced and sometimes directed by Nigel Lythgoe. Both Simon Cowell, Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe are British. Dancing With The Stars is distributed by BBC World Wide and is produced by Conrad Green also British.
All four men are listed in the Top 20 British talent making it state side (list) by The Independent Media dated Monday, 30 June 2008. Both men have collaborated together on a reality show in the past called ALL AMERICAN GIRL produced by 19 Entertainment which was founded by Simon Fuller in 1985. Since then 19 Entertainment has grown to astounding heights with the purchase of
Storm Model Management one of the top modeling agencies in the world as well as their focus on entertainment properties in film/TV/music. They also have a hand in the careers of David and Victoria Beckham, as well as numerous Alist Brands and Personalities.
Also Simon Fuller is connected with CKx which manages among other assests three major cash cows: 1) 19 Entertainment Limited which owns RIGHTS to the IDOLS and So You Think You Can Dance brands/franchises through out the world.
2) 85% Ownership of the Elvis Franchise and 3) 80% of Muhammad Ali Enterprises that means ALI's image (name, image, likeness, certain trademarks and intellectual properties.
I forgot to mention that Prescilla Presley (former DWTS contestant) serves on the board of CKx.
Another interesting gem is that the British are considered the pioneers and the creators of
"Tabloid Journalism" which literally means "compressed news/journalism" also in today's game sensational stories (sex, violence, emotional pulling, causes a reaction). The word "tabloid" is said to have come from "London based pharmaceutical company Burroughs Wellcome & Co. to the compressed tablets {instead of the original loose powder form} they marketed as "Tabloid" pills in the late 1880s" - according to Wikipedia.
So now that it is understood that IDOL and DWTS are owned by British colleagues it would make sense for them to join forces to try to kill a new King - "THE VOICE".
"The Voice" was developed by a Dutch Media Mogul and premiered in Holland. According to a press release "As Previously Announced, NBC Teams Up with Leading Reality Show Pioneers John De Mol, Mark Burnett and Warner Horizon Television to Bring Holland's Blockbuster Vocal Talent Discovery Series to America in Spring 2011" - NBC Press Release.
John De Mol is one of the richest media moguls in the world. He also developed the highly successful and influential reality series BIG BROTHER. His partner, Mark Burnett is famous for producing SURVIVOR, The Apprentice, MTV Awards & The People's Choice Awards to name a few. Burnett was born in Britain but moved to the U.S. in the early 80's.
To summarize we have some serious media moguls controlling the TV game board and right now after the virgin viewing, De Mol and Burnett have a hit. It will be fascinating to see what tactics will be used next, in this multi-billion dollar chess game. Simon Cowell's American installment of the "X Factor" will unveil in the fall of 2011. According to rating reports in Holland, The Voice of Holland has beaten the Dutch versions of "American Idol" and "The X Factor". Will "The Voice" be able to hang on to their high notes after an impressive opening?

Fabulous Frenchie Davis Performs on THE VOICE

As the competition between the "REALITY Contestant/Competition Shows" heats up, the desire to win viewers to consume the products that are advertised during the expensive programs is crucial. American Idol, Dancing With The Stars and the new show The Voice are pulling out each other's hair by cannibalizing on each other's cast aways. Dancing With The Stars last night had Pia Toscano (American Idol) and The Voice had a wonderful singer that was kicked to the curb for naughty photos, FRENCHIE DAVIS. Frenchie Davis is a rotund women with a killer voice which American Idol discriminates against. AI likes its women slim so it is easy to blame some photos as an excuse to getting her off the show meanwhile they have had several contestants arrested for breaking the law on American Idol. Here is a clip of Frenchie Davis singing at a fundraiser last year.

Chris Jericho Gets Voted Off Dancing With The Stars

WWE and Heavy Metal Singer, Chris Jericho lasted to the midway point on Season 12 of DWTS. That is no small feat. Jericho was always polite and friendly to fans and is a very likable guy. He put in hours and hours of rehearsal with his pro partner Cheryl Burke and Jericho should be proud of his accomplishment.

Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas "Walking On Sunshine"

These two are adorably good together. Their dance Monday night was full of charm and technique. Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas got another 10 and will be safe in the result show. Chelsea loves her some Red Bull (diet). Maybe Red Bull should sponsor her.

Kendra Wilkinson Slams The Samba on DWTS

Above Kendra is seen holding an ice pack and a banana. Kendra had a giant bruise on her knee from all the dancing. Kendra put it behind her and got her best scores on Monday.
Sexy Kendra Wilkinson shaked her money maker on Dancing With The Stars during her slamming Samba. Wearing a sexy yellow Tina Turnerish type dress, Kendra was definitely in her element. I would be very surprised if Kendra gets voted off after doing that dance last night.

Romeo Gets A Special Visit on Dancing With The Stars

Romeo was in a serious mood on Friday when he took a time out from dwts rehearsal and had an intense conversation on the phone. Less than an hour later, a very special person came to visit the star. None other than his dad, Master P. Master P was very proud of his son and it seem to bring some more good luck to Romeo. Last night, Romeo got his first 10. Master P has done an outstanding job being a father! Romeo is a very talented and bright young entrepreneur who also like his father gives back to the community. Looking forward to seeing Romeo compete in the Dancing With The Stars finals.

Ralph Macchio Saves Karina Smirnoff on Dancing With The Stars

There is something quiet and chivalrous about Ralph Macchio. When his partner Karina Smirnoff tripped on their costumes during a turn, Macchio was there in a heart beat to pull her back up and get right back to the dance. Ralph is a PRO. CLASS ACT! I don't think they are going home tonight. I think Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff will be in the Finals.

Can Chris Jericho's Fans Save Him on Dancing With The Stars?

Its coming down closer to the finals and it is tougher and tougher to survive. Dancing With The Stars is not only about how one dances but the popularity of the Stars. Can WWE Chris Jericho survive another week against Ralph Macchio, Kendra Wilkinson, Hines Ward, Chelsea Kane, Romeo and Kirstie Alley? Will his tango keep Chris Jericho alive? Tune in Tonight for the Results on ABC.

LA Galaxy Win 3 to 0 Over Portland Timbers

The LA Galaxy made it look relatively easy to take down the Portland Timbers Saturday Night. The first goal took place minutes into the game. Landon Donovan assisted Barrett who fired the first goal of the night. A few moments after the first goal, Donovan converted a penalty kick into the net. In the 2nd half of the game, Donovan scored again. The Timbers weren't able to convert anything into a score. Galaxy Goalie Donovan Ricketts had the net on lock down so nothing got passed him during the night. At the end of the first half David Beckham appeared to grimace at the Refs regarding a call. Later he is seen saying something to the officials and it looks like Beckham was quieted by one of the Galaxy Coaching staff before he got into serious trouble.

KAT & Bunny at LA Galaxy Game

Great Times at the LA Galaxy Game last night against the Portland Timbers. Before the win, I met up with a very big Bunny. Happy Easter, Passover, Spring Time.

Christina Aguilera is KING at the ABBEY & Bobby Trendy is Queen

The Abbey celebrated it's 20th Anniversary with some remodeling and a party with Christina Aguilera as their first Gay Hall of Fame Inductee. While the lovely and talented Ms. Aguilera was on her way, Bobby Trendy held court and kept the photogs busy outside with some fun costume changes. Bobby is proudly on the worst dressed this week on several blogs and magazines this week and next. The crowd was getting ugly waiting for Christina. I was told she was going to arrive at 8:30. She didn't until 11pm. But that is to be expected. Good things come to those who wait so they say....

I'll add videos later.
