McDonald’s Rationing Fries

McDonald’s Rationing Fries

Apparently McDonald’s in Japan is having to ration fries because of labor disruptions on the U.S. west coast. Prolonged negotiations with the port workers on the west coast is causing a severe delay of over 1,000 much needed spuds to the fast food chains in Japan. The spuds are one of the U.S’s top exports and are partially cooked and cut before being shipped. The Japanese consume over 300,000 tons of french fries a year, mostly at fast food restaurants. Looks like they may not be asking “you want fries with that?” in Japan for the time being.

Russell Peters $21 million

Russell Peters’ $21 Million Salary Stuns, ‘Almost Famous’ Comedian Makes Big Money

In Hollywood, they say fame and fortune go hand in hand. That’s not the case for comedian Russell Peters. The 43-year-old pulled in an estimated $21 million last year, but chances are you’ve never even heard of him. (more…)

Monica Bellucci Next Bond Girl

Monica Bellucci is a famous Italian actress who is set to become the next bond girl opposite Daniel Craig. She is also to be joined by Dave Bautista and Christopher Waltz for team Spectre. She will actually be the oldest lady to ever play a bond girl. Must say I didn’t see this pick coming as Bellucci is usually in independent or foreign films. Little is know about this future bond movie as far as the plot and no trailers have come out just yet. Skyfall was a huge success and hopefully this next film is as superbly done as that one.

Kelly Monaco Takes Third Place DWTS Finale

Kelly Monaco Takes Third Place DWTS Finale

Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy won third place on the third season of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars.

On last night’s show Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy danced the Paso Doble & the Freestyle – These underdogs received excellent comments from the judges, and hot final scores. During their first dance, the Paso Doble, Len said, “Well done,” Bruno called Kelly “a thing of beauty,” and Carrie Ann noticed “a little slip-up,” but despite that remarked that it was their “best dance.” Len and Bruno awarded the couple 10 points, while Carrie Ann awarded them a very close-to-perfect 9.5 points. Their total score for the first dance was 29.5 – 2.9 points above their 26.6 average score of the season.

During the Freestyle, Bruno “loved the blend of cirque de soleil and dancing.” Len thought the dance was “truly wonderful,” and Carrie Ann said, “The truth is we have been all watching you as a couple grow and it has played into your dancing and you told us a happy ending into a beautiful love story.” Kelly and Val received a perfect ten from Carrie Ann and Bruno, while Len awarded them a near-perfect 9.5.

Whenever reality television show ideas dry up, they bring back previous contestants to compete on an All-Star show off. This television style has been implemented on America’s Next Top Model, Survivor, Bachelor/ette, Big Brother and millions of lesser important late night reality television productions. This was the first time ever in DWTS history that an All-Stars season was being produced – it was an attempt to rekindle the famous DWTS fire and bring back viewers who lost interest in the show for the past five seasons. However, the downtrodden 15th season of the popular show might have been the swan song we’ve all been waiting for.

Ginger Alden 20 When Elvis Proposed

Ginger Alden 20 When Elvis Proposed

Can you believe Ginger Alden was only 20 when Elvis proposed? Maybe it’s more shocking that The King would ever settle down. He proposed to Alden and gave her an engagement ring two months later, though several of his friends later claimed that he had no serious intention of marrying again. But he did and it led to Lisa Marie being born a little while after.

Ginger Alden was born on November 13, 1956 in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. She is an actress, known for Living Legend: The King of Rock and Roll, Capitol and Lady Grey. She is now married to Ron Leyser.

Jon Hamm Drama Teacher – John Burroughs High School

Jon Hamm Drama Teacher – John Burroughs High School
Before Jon Hamm was stupendously famous for his role as Don Draper in Mad Men he was a mild mannered drama teacher at John Burroughs High School. I guess this throws out the old saying “those who can’t, teach”. Jon attended the private school as well in his younger days, where he was a member of the football, baseball, and swim teams. Hamm was also on some minor hollywood dating reality shows before he got his big break, and guess what? He got rejected, apparently the young lady found someone more appealing than the future Don Draper.

I guess it’s a bit humanizing to know that not all celebrities are born into fame and many of them work normal jobs before their big break.

They Married The Same Person Twice

They Married The Same Person Twice

Divorce among celebrities has long been in vogue long before it became socially acceptable amongst rank and file Americans. However, some celebrities reconsider their decisions and remarry their former spouses.

Marie Osmond

Marie Osmond married her first husband Stephen Craig in 1982 in a storybook Mormon romance. When she divorced him in 1985, she was the first member in her family to divorce going back generations. She married a year later, but after twenty years that married ended. In a surprise announcement, Osmond remarried her first husband in December 2012, in the LDS Las Vegas Temple wearing the same gown she had worn back in 1982. They are now expecting their first child.

After a failed third marriage, Wagner remarried Wood in 1972 and was with her until her untimely demise in 1982. Sadly, the circumstances of her death remain a controversy to this day and the police recently reopened the investigation into her death.

Judge Judy

The Honorable Judge Judy obviously made an error in judgment in 1990 when she divorced Judge Jerry Sheindlin. The pair reunited a year later — Judge Jerry was Judge Judy’s second and third husband, while Judge Judy was Judge Jerry’s second and third wife. (Are you with us?)
Their time together: 1977-1990 and 1991 – present.

Somewhere in between those eight marriages of his, talk show host Larry King managed to marry one of his eight wives twice. Arlene Akins was the lucky lady who captured this man two times — she was wife No. 3 and No. 5.

Jean-Claude Van Damme

The handsome Belgian martial arts action film star has been married to his American actress and former female bodybuilder wife Gladys Portugues since 1999. She was actually his third and fifth wife so we’re hoping the second time around for these two will be the charm.
Their time together: 1987-1992 and 1999 – present.
