People Pay You That Much to Sit Down?
WORDS BY PETITE ANGLAISE
For those connected enough to attend New York Fashion week, be well advised. Front row is now the new red carpet with many celebrities, socialites, and wannabees skipping the cameras of the front entrance to sit calmly and most importantly to be seen, front row. At my first New York Fashion Week 2 years ago, I was honored to even sit down, let alone sit about 4 rows behind Nicole Richie. But alas, some of the more infamous (or famous) personalities feel well…”obligated” to make an appearance, for a cost, of course.

I’ve Been Watching the 3rd Season of 30 Rock Lately
I’m late to the party but whatever. If it weren’t for NetFlix’s watch instantly feature, I would have never known the genius that is Tina Fey. But as much as I enjoyed the first two seasons, the third season has taken a decidedly different course. Albeit, none of my qualms with third seasons are of any significance to the casual viewer, but the changes they made to the show felt like someone moved all the furniture in my home.
First example, 30 Rock goes heavy on the celebrity cameos. Don’t get me wrong. I loved seeing Oprah, Jon Hamm, and (oh God!) Selma Hayek on this season. I could have passed on Jennifer Aniston. Maybe Elizabeth Banks would’ve help up better for me. But there is no scarcity of guest appearances on the show. The problem with that is less time for the actual cast. And to me, 30 Rock is more than just Liz Lemon, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Jack Donaghy, and Kenneth the Page. Plus, the celebrity thing is one-trick pony. It usually only sets up filler episodes that don’t further the plot. Luckily, 30 Rock can lean on strength of its comedy alone. The plot is merely a device to deliver the jokes.
I wonder if he has replaced “D’oh!” with “Sn’oh!”
It’s Official: CoCo is no longer coming back to NBC.
I felt so strongly about the news today that I could not let this seemingly insignificant Tuesday go on without commenting about it. Conan O’Brien has issued a statement to the public that he will not play along with what could only be described as his 7-month anniversary sodomy. In other words, he’s not going to stand idly by while NBC gives the Tonight Show back to Jay Leno and let Conan have it in name only at a later time slot. And while the rumors were rampant about Conan’s next move, we all knew this was coming when the news broke out. It was lose-lose for Conan at that point. If he stayed, he ran the risk of showing the world that NBC had taken everything from him, including his balls. Instead, he displayed his classier side with that statement he released, he got to keep his dignity, and people now realize that a world without Conan is a lot better than a world with only Leno.
