Who Got Kicked Off on Episode 2 of The Bachelor?

We never saw much of Alissa and, apparently, neither did Chris. Her departure is unsurprising and expected. She made this flight attendant video as her introduction but now, sadly, she’ll be leavin’ on a jet plane.

I thought Jordan was super-cool in the first episode as she presented a bottle of Whiskey to Chris. That, and she’s a blonde with model looks and she likes to give her man sexy dances. Well, it turns out she must have consumed the bottle of Whiskey because she was simply hammered on this episode to the point of unattractive. I might have kept her for one more episode just in case her inebriation was the exception rather than the rule.

Breaking Bachelor News: Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray – Splitsville!

That was then...

That was then…

As I was completing my review of The Bachelor girls from Season 19, I came across the news that Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray have split up.

Excuse me? You’ve got to be kidding! I just saw Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray Monday night talking about their engagement. They seemed all touchy feely. But, as listed in the 10 Possible Reasons they broke up, the Naughty Mommy speculates that this affection could have all been a ruse.

I’m actually not surprised that Andi and Josh broke up. I’m only surprised at the timing of it.

I know…everyone was all happy googly eyed when they seemed so happy at the end of her season of The Bachelorette. People loved Andi because she called out Juan Pablo on his all-around-lameness and everyone was rooting for her.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton: Back Together After Christmas Celebration?

Are Robin Thicke and Paula Patton back together? is reporting that the two spent Christmas Eve partying together and that Paula’s family was treating Robin as someone that they would enjoy having back in the family.

I was quite unaware of Paula Patton until one pivotal evening when I saw the movie 2 Guns with Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. I enjoyed the movie but left thinking just one thing: Who was that girl playing the love-interest of Denzel Washington?

Of course, Google led me right to her and I quickly discovered that she was married to Robin Thicke, who had recently shot to fame with his recording of Blurred Lines.

Robin’s success with Blurred Lines apparently went to his head and he began stepping out on the most ravishing beauty I’ve seen in a movie in awhile. She said “you’re out a here” and he tried forcefully but somewhat pitifully to win back her affections. It did not work and Paula, after declaring legal separation in February, filed for divorce on October 18.

Is their Christmas Eve together a sign of hope for Robin or simply co-parents sharing holidays for the benefit of the little one? We shall see…

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton: Images Through the Years

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have been together since they were in the their teens and married back in 2005. Let’s take a look at them through the years. Why? Because every photo of her is a feast for the eyes and, well, Robin’s with her so we’ll see him too. See larger versions up top in the carousel.

Unbroken Review: A Torturous Movie That May Leave You Broken.

A Torturous Movie?

There are various predispositions and expectations one has when they enter a movie. Have you seen lots of previews? Do you adore or respect one or many of the actors? Do know what the movie is about before walking in the theater? These pre-sentiments can have a vital impact on what you will think of the final result.

In the case of Unbroken, I knew practically nothing about the film prior to entering the theater. I only had vague notions that this was a movie made by Angelina Jolie about (I thought) some sort of great American hero who triumphs against all odds (see trailer below).


Then, the movie begins and, for a brief time, my preconceived notions are confirmed. In the main character, Louis “Louie” Zamperini, we discover a rambunctious young boy, an Italian immigrant in America, who is always up to no good and feels that he is unworthy of being great. His older brother intervenes, however, and teaches Louie that he is special and can do great things. With his older brother’s help and inspiration, Louie builds his character and his physique to become an aspiring Olympic track star; he is chosen to represent America in the Olympics in Germany in 1936, where he will earn a 3rd place metal, and in Japan in 1940.

Then life and war intervene to derail Louie’s life path and, in my opinion, the movie. He enlists in the military and is commissioned as a bombardier in the Pacific Islands during World War II. Great, I thought, I am usually intrigued by movies about World War II with their stories of battles, heroism, and redemption. Read More

Stay With Me: Sam Smith Earns the #10 Spot

He starts off the song with: “I guess it’s true I’m not good at a one-night stand.” Well, that’s a shame because they can be fun! But who can not relate to the song “Stay With Me”. We’ve all felt it. C’mon, I know you have and that’s why you love this song!

Problem: Ariana Grande Comes in At #9 With Iggy Azalea

This song is like the reverse of Jay-Z’s 99 problems. Jay-Z’s got all sorts of problems but a b*tch ain’t one. Not so with Ariana as she refrains: “I got one less problem without you.”

All About That Bass: I Love This Song at #8. Should Meghan Be At #1

I have a confession. I first heard this song in a Zumba class and thought it was saying “All About That As*”. I couldn’t wait to see the video and then sadly discovered that they were saying “bass”. Love it anyway!

Rude: Magic Makes #7 With This Sweet Song

That day when you have to ask your girlfriend’s dad permission to get married? Stressful…and then he says, “not a chance.” How rude!

Jason’s Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” Comes in at #6

I had to watch my niece and nephew for a week while my sister went on vacation this year. She said to me: “Don’t let them listen to Talk Dirty.” First time in the car…we blasted it. What a beat!

Counting Stars: One Republic Tops the Year at #5

“Lately I’ve been I’ve losin’ sleep dreaming about the things that we could be…” Great intro to a great tune!

Fancy: Iggy Gets Me Jiggy at #4

From the moment I heard this, I knew. Iggy’s got talent…she’s hot…white girl got rhythm…take a listen…She be fancy!

All of Me Reaches Legendary Status as the 3rd Best Song of 2014

John Legend is simply a smooth crooner romancing this hot babe! Who is she? I love all her “curves and edges”. Ooops, now I feel bad…that’s actually his new wife, Chrissy Teigen. Go John…you got a winner there đŸ™‚

Katy Perry Can Never Be Considered a Dark Horse: The #2 Best Song of 2014

Juicy J gets in on the Katy Perry show as she becomes an Aphrodite! Do people like Dark Horse? More than 740 million YouTube views would suggest that the answer is yes.

Pharrell’s Happy: The # 1 Song of 2014?

I like Pharrell and I have to put him at #1 because this is an official list. But is it fair to say that this song has been overplayed? Anyway, here you go…but check out just below for A Rich Ideas pick of the best song of 2014!
