Sometimes Meg wonders what fame does to actors. One day you see them in a great movie or TV show; maybe they are twirling on the red carpet. Then years later, you wonder what they’ve been up to, and you realize they’ve completely gone off the f**king rails. Shall we ponder how a career goes down the toilet?
Meg remembers Janine Turner on Northern Exposure, it was such a quirky interesting show, with a fabulous ensemble cast:
She can’t remember if she ever got together with Rob Morrow, but she remembers the show. Especially the John Corbett part:
OK, enough distraction. Want to know what Janine is up to now? Check out this video, which I KNOW you will not be able to get through:
Janine is a conservative radio talk show host. Janine apparently has been teaching the Federalist Papers, the Constitution, and as well as pimping out her daughter on her Constituting America website. If you think this website is crazy, take a look at her personal website, Janine Turner, where she not only has a million publicity stills:
But she also has ads for a local bakery and Century 21 real estate. I guess no one told Janine that simplicity is best when putting up a website. I always think sleek and spacious pages attract readers, but hers looks like it might attract a serial killer.
Alicia Silverstone. Wasn’t she so cute in Clueless? Meg loved that she didn’t see Paul Rudd was into her for practically the entire film.
Now she’s a well known vegan and cookbook author, and she’s also more recently famous for this:
OK, she’s feeding her kid like a bird. Call me crazy, but isn’t that what baby food is for? Or better yet, use one of those special baby blenders to puree the food. I realize civilization worked like this at one time, but there really isn’t a need for mouth to mouth feeding in Hollywood. Oh, and for the love of God, please stop naming your kids screwed up names. Bear Blu? Isn’t that like a cartoon on TV?
Lastly, I hate to even put this one in here, but I have to:
Drew Barrymore sweetie, you might call you hair “ombre” but I call it bad roots. Stop doing that and get a real color!
I always try and tie Jon Stewart to any Friday piece I write, and here he is, waxing on Rupert Murdoch’s role in the cell phone hacking scandal:
And kids, if you have learned nothing from this Friday’s blog, it’s to always have a good hairdresser at the ready. Never succumb to celebrity bad hair.
