Think Quick: Cheryl Tiegs booted off Celebrity Apprentice

Cheryl Tiegs was fired on Celebrity Apprentice by Donald Trump because she apparently didn’t want to be on the show. Once you admit something like that to your boss, you’re gone like Santorum’s sanity.  The task was to create sandwiches that they then sold to people (and celebrities) for exhorbitant prices. They also appeared on Rachael Ray’s show where she judged the two best sandwiches, picked by the teams, and chose the men’s sandwich. I guess it must have been a very good sandwich. The men’s team was shown to be taking in very little cash for the number of … Continue reading Think Quick: Cheryl Tiegs booted off Celebrity Apprentice

It was a treat from America, one that you didn’t get every day – and we loved the reruns just like many other countries do The Simpsons is the third longest running scripted primetime show on American television. It’s got at least two more seasons but I’m betting it’ll keep going. I launched into the … Continue reading The 500th Episode of The Simpsons

Watch it now: Downton Abbey Season 2

Downton Abbey has a lot going for it. This season is very full of intrigue, death, love, and historical references. World War I pushes the family into embracing the coming modern age with not only electricity but also a bit more equality. The age of the house being run by more servants than uppercrust society people is coming to a less than gracious end. If you haven’t started watching this show, it’s time.  Watch this show if: you like period pieces you wish you could be addressed as “Lady” or “Lord” you have the desire to manipulate people (like O’Brien) … Continue reading Watch it now: Downton Abbey Season 2
