See more at World of Wonder.
A lot of chatter and bantering today among the pod squad. WOW executive assistant Lydia Rendon – dubbed the Lindsay Lohan of World of Wonder due to her frequent attendance at such hotspots as Les Deux, LAX, and Hyde – joins the mix today. James recounts a Descent-like nightmare he had about her, with cave as metaphor for vagina, which Randy interprets probably not incorrectly as a “K-hole dream.” Hairspray is discussed, including the snubbing of John Waters’ original film in the publicity machine, the huh? quality of Travolta’s performance, the over-praising of Queen Latifah, the hotness of Zac Efron, and the fact that Waters’ original film really wasn’t that good upon seeing it again. And Kelly Osbourne and Macaulay Culkin somehow get worked in. Can Lindsay Lohan ever come back? “She’s an old whore to me now,” says James, adding that Halle Berry now is nothing more than a spokesperson for Revlon. In a discussion of actresses vs movie stars, Sharon Stone and Elizabeth Taylor necessarily come up. Mad Men. Much talk about Damages and Glenn Close and that leaning against the Cadillac bit. James loved his 30s, hates I Hate My 30s. Scott Baio proves to be a “serial douchebag” in Scott Baio Is 45…and Single. Kathy Griffin just gets better and better. Beauty and the Geek. The evolving of reality TV – and thoughts on how perhaps it should evolve. Julie Chen’s ridiculously solemn hosting of Big Brother. What the hell’s with John from Cincinnati? Californication. Weeds. Mary Louise Parker. Claire Danes. Michelle Pfeiffer’s eternal youth and beauty.
