[2014 VIDEO] ARE SINGING COMPETITION SHOWS ON THE WAY OUT? AMERICAN IDOL & THE VOICE FIGHT TO STICK AROUND

Sorry, it’s been a while since my last blog post.  My real estate world has been so busy that it gives me little time to write.  But today I reflected back on a video I posted on The X Factor long before its demise.  It’s funny to see that all predictions came true.  If only Simon Cowell would have listened to my suggestions, his show may have had the success and longevity of American Idol.  Such a waste of a well produced show, I was sorry to see it canceled in the U.S.

This year the singing competition shows were all a complete bore.  I cringed while watching American Idol and The Voice.  They were both lacking their original magic…so I could only bear watching a few episodes.  The judges were not fresh and the contestants did not have the excitement of past singers.  Was it just me?  Or were you thinking the same thing?

Even the return of Jennifer Lopez to American Idol was clearly disappointing.  While she will forever be my favorite judge on any singing competition show, the chemistry was just not there.  Did she even like Harry Connick, Jr?  JLo even looked slightly bored on several of the shows.  It may have just been a quick payday for her or something to boost her new CD.  But she should have just had a V8:)

Are singing competition shows on the way out?  Probably so.  It will be interesting to see just how long American Idol and The Voice will stick around.  Maybe we are burning out on these type of shows and need something fresh to watch.  Reality TV appears to be strong and not going anywhere anytime soon.  But they may need to find better ways to promote singers in a new light.  Will America’s Got Talent do it this season?  We shall see…

[VIDEO] SIMON COWELL CONFIRMS BABY RUMOR…I’M THE DADDY & PROUD!

Simon Cowell finally broke his silence about the love triangle “baby daddy” rumors.  During this week’s London World premiere of the “One Direction” This Is Us” new film, the famous Brit told the BBC; “I’m proud to be a dad.  It’s something I hadn’t thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it.”

The shocking tale of him sleeping with his good friends wife, Lauren Silverman, caused a stir and unfortunately a divorce.  When her husband, Andrew Silverman, heard the shocking news he quickly left her and filed the dreaded papers.  After 10 years of marriage, his wife leaves with another mans baby AND about $2 million bucks.  Seems like she is the BIG winner in this deal.

Well, at least Simon was a gentleman and held his tongue until the furry of waves calmed.  He allegedly kept his silence to allow time for the divorce to become final.

Lauren sure knows how to pick rich guys…and she definitely upgraded by getting pregnant by a BILLIONAIRE:).  It was once rumored that Simon did not want kids, but he seems to be all smiles now.

The most surprising part about the story….is that it happened with his mistress, not the dozens of model types he has previously been linked to in the past!  Can you say….child support payday?  Maybe his luck ran out and was used up with all of his successful business ventures.

This should have a very interesting ending.  Let’s just hope it’s NOT a boy…we know his HUGE ego will force him to name the baby Simon!

Looks like The X Factor just found a way to see huge ratings…do you think he timed this out perfectly? The show premieres September 11th….wow!

[VIDEO] JOE & TERESA GIUDICE INDICTED FOR FRAUD; NEW JERSEY HOUSEWIVES’ GOING DOWN

The hit reality show “Real Housewives of New Jersey” will definitely see a surge in ratings. Today Joe and Teresa Giudice were indicted on 39 counts of fraud.  They allegedly defrauded the system and were slapped with multiple counts of “screwing the law” which could land them in jail for up to 55 years!

It was reported that they turned themselves in today and faced the judge.  Accusations by the court include; conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, bankruptcy fraud, making false statements, falsifying bank statements and pay stubs to get loans, along with failing to file tax returns from 2004-2008.

The not so loving couple had to surrender their passports and post a $500,000 bond each!   Since Joe is not a U.S. citizen, he will also be subjected to drug testing.  Let’s be clear…these are FEDERAL charges, so they should be scared!

It seems that evil Teresa may be getting what she deserves, after repeatedly bashing most of the cast and her own family members.  This should snap her back to reality and humble her extremely arrogant husband.  I just feel bad for their kids and whoever may have to care for them (they are a bit of a challenge).  Will Melissa and brother Joe come to the rescue?

Well, maybe it is good they went into therapy recently and tried to resolve their family issues.  They will definitely need family support if convicted of these crimes.  We know footage from the show will NOT help their cause.  Lavish living was a part of their every day life….and who lives in such a big mansion after a bankruptcy anyway?

How many times did Melissa say Teresa was a LIAR on the show?  Hummmm???  We know sis will be called in to testify….along with the producers and other family members.  I bet Teresa will wish she was nicer to her family!  Especially Melissa…payback is a B%&#@!

2013: SINGER BRUNO MARS MOM DIES SUDDENLY OF BRAIN ANEURYSM; AT ONLY 55YRS OLD

It was sad to hear of the sudden death of singer Bruno Mars mom on Saturday.  Bernadette Hernandez was only 55-years-old, when she unexpectedly suffered from a brain aneurysm and was rushed to Queens Medical Center in Honolulu.  She passed away after doctor’s were unable to save her from this untimely diagnosis.

The only thing Bruno can take comfort in, is that his mother was able to see him shoot to stardom and make her proud.  His talent is undeniable, but losing his parent at such a young age will certainly change his perspective and artistry.  With him already writing and belting out extremely emotional lyrics, it will be interesting to see how he can become even better.  Wonder if this will also affect his upcoming tour….let’s hope he continues on in memory of his mom.

Bruno’s new song “Treasure” is already a hit, but may now have even more meaning after this tragic loss.  A mom is something to definitely treasure….so his lyrics can be replaced to honor her in a different way.

R.I.P. Bernadette Hernandez….and fans are certainly supporting Bruno in his time of loss.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is an iconic hit TV show from decades ago.  However, it appears fans around the world could not get enough of star Will Smith’s recent impromptu reunion dance on the UK talk show hosted by Graham Norton.

While promoting his new upcoming film “After Earth” with son Jaden, they broke out in a mini-dance off.  He was also joined by his ex-side kick Alfonso Ribeiro, doing the “Carlton dance”.  And we cannot forget the famous DJ “Jazzy Jeff” who helped launch is rap career, he was also there to mix the music.  What a treat!

It was a fun show and watching above videos does bring back fond memories.  No wonder it has already received over 11 million views on Youtube (and growing).  We can never tell what will go viral these days…but obviously funny and light-hearted videos hit a nerve.

If you loved the comedy show as much as I did, you will get a kick out of the video.  Did you watch the show?  If not, you will still get your laugh on….ENJOY!

[VIDEO] 5/19/13: BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS RECAP; MIGUEL & BRUNO MARS BEST PERFORMANCES OF THE NIGHT

The Billboard Music Awards were held on May 19, 2013.  It was an exciting show with stellar performances in spite of the weak host Tracy Morgan.  Although Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift (loved it),  Will i am,  Nicki Minaj (or bitchy Minaj…NASTY!), Neo, David Guetta, and many other fan favorites rocked It…but two definitely stood out..

Don’t get me wrong they ALL were definitely at the top of their game.  However, my personal favorite two performances of the night were given by Bruno Mars and Miguel.  It is unfortunate that Bruno Mars does not seem to get the FULL props he deserves, he is amazingly talented and a hit maker.  No worries…his time is coming, loved his song Treasure.  And for those not yet familiar with Miguel, mark my words, he will be as big as Michael Jackson down the road (ok maybe close).

It was their best produced show in years and they get an A+ for entertainment value.  This show offered incredible music, performed by some of the most creative artists of this decade.  It is about time that…true artistry is FINALLY BACK!

Obviously, additional highlights included the guest appearance by Madonna for her Top Tour Award and Prince for his Icon Award.  They are both icons new singers aspire to be in the future….and are living legends for sure.  Prince is just too damn cool and he actually PERFORMED!  Not feeling the FRO nor the rock style arrangement..but still love him for life.

On another note; it was funny to see JLO have a boot malfunction.  Some poor fashion designer will be FIRED today.  But I have to say, she still jammed it and worked it out!  It was also still better than the Janet Jackson upper body flash.

And kudos to Justin Bieber… first artist under 19-years-old having 5 number ones on the Billboard 100 is INSANE!  His Milestone Award was well-deserved.  Did they BOO Bieber?  Bring him up to bring him down…shameful!  From Youtube to mega fame…is a GREAT JOB!  BTW…does Bieber look like Robin Thicke now?  I’m just saying! 

AND THE BILLBOARD ARTIST OF THE YEAR GOES TO….Taylor Swift.

2013: CATHERINE ZETA-JONES ENTERS TREATMENT CENTER FOR BIPOLAR DISORDER

zetaCatherine Zeta-Jones is an Academy Award winning actress.  She is married to actor Michael Douglas.  She has starred in dozens of hit movies. She is stunningly beautiful and a mother of two.  She is wealthy and successful.

It would seem that she has it all and should be the happiest woman in the world.  However, she admits to having Bipolar disorder and recently announced, she is seeking treatment by checking herself into a mental health facility for the illness.  Over 6 million Americans suffer from this debilitating disease and seek help, so she is not alone.

This goes to show that we sometimes view celebrities as perfect and happy; which is not always the case.  They are human and have the same issues as anyone else. The only difference is that they are in the limelight and have found fame and fortune.

She is an incredible actress and fans are sending her much love and support.  Let’s hope she finds success in treatment so she can live a fulfilling life.  We are rooting for her!
