Arsenio Hall used to do a segment on his show called something like: "Things That Make You Go 'Hmmm?."
At least that's what I've heard; I was more a fan of the other late night guys. Arsenio was too hip for me, I suppose, with that whole sittin'-on-a-sofa-and-not-behind-a-desk thing he did.
But there is a whole lotta entertainment news that is making me go "Hmmm?" today, including:
Crack Is Wack: C'mon...When they wed back in '92, didn't you just know that Whitney was making a huge mistake. I mean, Bobby was a bad boy, and we couldn't figure out why the pop diva with the golden voice was interested in the guy from The New Edition, who had legal problems involving drugs and infidelity.
Now, the couple is seperating.
Well, I caught the Diane Sawyer interview back in 2002, and I watched Being Bobby Brown, so I have only one thing to say: "It's about damn time, Bobby! Don't walk, run. And count your blessings you got out with all your limbs intact."
Coincidence? I Think Not: Tom Arnold leaves Shelby Roos, his wife of four years, at the same time Heather Locklear is splitting from her short-term beau, David Spade? Surely you see the connection. ...Don't ya?
Nah, It Couldn't Have Been That: Ben Affleck is in today's USA Today whining about being typecast...as himself !
"Modern typecasting isn't about, 'I think of you as the captain from Star Trek, therefore I can't watch you in X-Men,' Now it's, 'I think of you as yourself, therefore I can't watch you in a fictional story.' "
Ben, listen...Next time you are in Taylor Books, let's have a chat about poor career choices, the effects that over-exposing your personal life can have on public perception, and about what the hell you were thinking during that whole "Bennifer" period. I'll buy.
