I gave up my usual CBS comedy line up to watch NBC’s I’m a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! Monday night, even though one of its “stars” is religious fundamentalist homophobe Stephen Baldwin (who’s main claim to fame is The Usual Suspects and a brother who can act). He recently appeared on Dr Phil to preach about the perils of gay marriage. Anyway, the new show was a big waste of time! I can’t believe it’s on four nights a week! At least, it only lasts one month. I mean, Patti Blagojevich? The wife of Rod? Really? How fitting that she got sent down the river in the first ten minutes of the show and almost drowned.

The premier episode was saved by eye candy couple but none too bright Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag-Spencer (married at the hip stars of MTV's The Hills), Frangela (comedy duo Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton from the movie He's Just Not That Into You, and VH1’s Best Week Ever), and crazy but gay-friendly Janice Dickenson (the “world’s first supermodel”).
Well, maybe “saved” is too big a word. This show should ask the public for absolution! I first realized that after thirty minutes into the program, when the host said, “After the break, Spencer and Heidi head for the hills!” and fifteen minutes later my suspicions were confirmed when Spencer announced, “Good news! We’re having Sanjaya for dinner. I’m going to cook him alive.” What the hell happened? Did all the writers come down with Costa Rican jungle fever?
This program should’ve been called, I’m Still Not Going to be a Celebrity after this Show Tanks. Tuesday night’s program (There was little else on!) substantiated all my trepidations and suspicions that fundamentalist homophobes are tragically stupid. And really, folks, all those faux threats from Heidi and Spencer about quitting got old fast. Not sure if those two are homophobic, but they sure are dumb. I hope they get voted off soon! Not that I'll be watching or anything.

The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien was much improved last night. He got into some topical stuff and was pretty funny. His bit making light of Twitter was priceless! Maybe he’ll make it after all.
It was disappointing how the mainstream press tended to ignore President Obama’s proclamation of June as LGBT Month. At least our gal friends on The View talked about it, as they did former Vice-President Cheney’s speech approving gay marriage at the state level. CNN had blurbs about both, but I found little about either story on network news programs.
I’ll never understand the hypocrisy of anti-abortionist activists who think unborn life is sacred but not that of adults who disagree with them. What a sad commentary it is that one of those misguided fools killed 67 year-old Dr. George Tiller because Tiller was recently acquitted of bogus charges that he performed illegal abortions.

Although he’s not married, he just had a baby girl named Everleigh with his girlfriend, Dominique Geisendorff.
Born August 16, 1982 in Tacoma, Washington, he is best known for playing surfer Kevin Volchok in the Fox series The O.C. Cam has also starred in several other TV shows, including The Young and the Restless and Jack & Bobby (Try to say that three times fast with a straight face!). In his spare time Gigandet enjoys going to the movies and playing sports.
