Kelly Ripa needs to relax!

I am really sad that Kelly Ripa is going bonkers over the news that her co-host Michael Strahan is going to GMA.

Kelly… stop complaining.

Uh Kelly. Did you know that you get paid pretty well?  Infact. There aren’t many jobs in the world that pay $15 million a year.

NO! Not even a soul cycle instructor makes that.

I am sure there is a sub group of out of work actresses and soap stars willing to take over your spot for less than 90% of your salary.

They may be sending resumes over as we speak.

So…buck up and put your dress on,  smile and go host your show that has your name on the title.

Today is not the time to be having a premenopausal meltdown.

Thanks.

Demi Lovato was one of those stars I thought wouldn’t make it!

Demi Lovato is looking amazing lately!  Her pop song “Cool for the Summer” is on repeat in my head.

I am so happy for her.  I wasn’t sure about her continued growth as a pop star, but she seems to be killing it.  

I mean, she was one of those Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus….and we all know how Miley turned out. 

I am really happy Demi has kept herself on the straight and narrow.  Facts:

  1. She has a major music career.  She has sold out arenas everywhere.
  2. Demi looks really rich; whether it’s from her private jet travel, or Chloe bags she shares with us on Instagram.
  3. She’s dating a boy and not a girl…

I think she’s at her peak right now.  

Cross fingers that Demi doesn’t lose focus and fall off the wagon of fame and good taste.  

Oops!  I spoke too soon.  This was her last night at the iheart radio concert in Vegas.  

A woman on a monetary bill? WOW. How Convenient.

Ok. The US Treasury wants to change the image of a person on a monetary bill and make it into a woman instead.

Does this have something to do with Caitlyn Jenner?  I hope not.  

I feel this is a large part of the Democratic machine who wants to get Hillary Clinton elected as president. 

Wow!  If we see a female on a monetary bill, then we should elect a female as a president.

You win.  You brainwashed me now.  (not really)

Thanks.

Sure…go ahead…..you can order a thousand more of those things.

Do you ever go into a store and it’s so full of clothes and things that you wonder why some head honcho at the corporate office gave a lower level employee permission to buy, buy, buy?

Sometimes I think it will take years for all the stuff crammed into the store to just move on out.

Sure, sales rack are the perfect place to find all the forgotten things that no one wants.

But, if it is jammed packed, and there is so much new stuff around the racks that you can’t even get to the sales rack, you just give up in sheer exhaustion and mind explosion.

After your mind has calmed down, and your heart stops racing, all the new stuff at full price seems reasonable.

But, it’s not like I have any luck finding something amazing in the sales racks anyway.

The stuff that ends up on those racks are usually hideous, ugly, out of season, or full of lipstick stains. 

I always wonder what do the stores do with all the extra clothes?  That’s probably where Marshalls and TJ Maxx come into play.

The unwanted stuff will find it’s way to the savvy shopper one way or another.

Silicon Valley in the Know

Ok. I watched Silicon Valley on HBO the other day, and I am getting the sneaky feeling that this show is more for Silicon Valley billionaires and those types who want to be on this show as either a character or real life person.   It’s a  very ego driven thing.

They probably had one of two conversations with the creators of the show like, “I am going to  pay HBO a lot of money,  only if you base a character on my rich self” ….

Whew!  There, I said it.  Whether or not that is true is up for discussion.  But, after watching this show, it is obvious that there is a hidden agenda, or similarities of certain Silicon Valley players being portrayed on this show.

Yes, those in Silicon Valley are more “in the know” than the rest of the world watching this show.

For example,

  1. Hooli is obviously Google.  So, anyone who works at Google is probably snickering, or secretly laughing at the parallel characters on the show.
  2. The main character of the person who runs Hooli,  is loosely based on similar characteristics of the Billionaire Superman, Mr. Brin….?  Is he really like that in person?
  3. Does Brin really wear beaded bracelets, and travel with a personal Yogi / or spiritual guide with him at all times?
  4. Is there really an obnoxious, guido type VC out there that no one likes to associate with?  There must be!

I really want to know!

But what is more annoying is the actual placement of real people, intermixed with actors.

For example, the no name tech crunch journalists and panelists from last season;   or the re/code editors from this recent episode.  I am pretty sure they are all Hollywood now.

We always see people from the Journalism and TV news world pretending in movies and TV shows.  Just like the billionaires, everyone wants to be relevant in this microcosm of California…including tech journalists.
