Did you watch the Emmys Monday night? Well I sure did, along with about 15.6 million other people. Yep, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards had the 2nd-highest number of viewers in the past 8 years, trailing only 2006’s show, which averaged 16.2 milllion watchers. Though that pales in comparison to the Oscars last year, which clocked in at a whopping 35.2 million people. So why exactly did everyone tune in this year? Was it the big name stars in attendance, like Matthew McConaghey and Julia Roberts? Maybe the lack of competition from a Monday Night Football game? Or Seth Myers’ hosting chops? Whatever it was, it worked.
So we all saw the young homeless teen that Miley Cyrus had accept her MTV VMA award Sunday night. But now more information is coming out about mystery man Jesse Helt, and it’s not pretty. Apparently there’s a warrant out for his arrest for violating his probation, which came from previous charges of criminal trespassing and criminal mischief. Not only that, but he was also charged with burglary back in 2010 when he tried to break into someone’s apartment! I’m sure his emotional speech was every bit as heartfelt as it came across, and it was definitely generous for Miley to share her time in the spotlight and shed light on America’s homeless youth problems, but maybe she could’ve chosen a better spokesman?
She loves him, she loves him not. She loves him? Pamela Anderson’s marriage to husband Rick Saloman seems to be back on again because she requested for her divorce filing be dismissed. It’s been on again off again for the couple after remarrying over eight months ago. She told Ellen they were just friends, then announced they were getting married, then filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. Now they’re back to locking lips? The girl just can’t make up her mind! Maybe she just likes filling out paperwork.
The next Bachelor is none other than fan favorite Chris Soules! Yep, Farmer Chris apparently beat out former Bachelorette star Arie Luyendyk Jr. to be the show’s next leading man. Arie took to Twitter, saying “he’s not the Bachelor” and “it wasn’t meant to be.” And while it isn’t 100% official just yet, my sources are saying that Chris is indeed the guy they picked. Producers for the show claim they want “the anti-Juan Pablo” for the new season, and they think they’ve found their new nice guy. Farmer Chris’ response says it best: “How could you not be interested in that?”
Some people may think it was inappropriate to parade Sofia Vergara on stage during the Academy President’s speech Sunday at the Emmys, but the actress definitely doesn’t. Critics called the stunt sexist, but Sofia Vergara says they’re being ridiculous. She says that “It means somebody can be hot and funny and make fun of herself while enjoying her work.” Among those opposed -- Katie Couric, who tweeted that the gag was “somewhat offensive.” But Sofia Vergara thinks everyone should lighten up a little bit. After all, her show Modern Family took home top honors from the awards show, so who’s really surprised to find her propped up on a golden pedestal?
Think you’ve got road rage? Well look out for Justin Bieber and his red Ferrari in your rearview mirror. The pop star was out driving in West Hollywood when he was rear-ended by a photog. Apparently the Biebes was annoyed by the photographer and his Prius behind him so he slammed on his brakes, causing the crash. Justin Bieber wasn’t hurt, and though the Ferrari was barely scratched, he lashed out on Twitter, even relating his minor fender-bender to the tragedy involving Princess Diana. Of course, Princess Diana’s quick temper didn’t instigate that terrible accident…so let’s just cool our jets, huh Justin? Safety first, privacy second.
Have all the stars finally aligned to make a Full House reunion a reality? Of all the 90s sitcom alums, sources say John Stamos is the one who’s really pushing for the show’s return, and the rest of the original cast isn’t far behind. Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and even possibly Bob Saget and Dave Coulier could be back on board. But John Stamos has teased the idea of a reunion before, and up until now all we’ve seen are a couple of brief appearances by the actors for Jimmy Fallon and Dave Coulier’s recent wedding. So is the Tanner family really getting back together, or are they just yanking our chain? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
