Tiffany Apologized

Jonathan Knight, the oldest member of New Kids On The Block, made his official "coming out" statement on the group's official website :

“To all my fans who have expressed concern: I have never been outed by anyone but myself. I did so almost twenty years ago. I never knew that I would have to do it all over again publicly just because I reunited with NKOTB! I have lived my life very openly and have never hidden the fact that I am gay. Apparently the prerequisite to being a gay public figure is to appear on the cover of a magazine with the caption, ‘I am gay’.

I apologize for not doing so if this is what was expected! My belief is that you live your life by example, and not by a caption on a magazine! If there ever has been any confusion about my sexuality, then you are someone that doesn’t even know me.
I love living my life being open and honest, but at this time I choose not to discuss my private life any further! My fellow band members don’t discuss their private lives with their loved ones and I don’t feel that just because I am gay, I should have to discuss mine!”

(Thanks to Nina C for the heads up and to homorazzi for the photo)

Jonathan Knight Outed By Tiffany

I am sure you have read by now that former 80s superstar, Tiffany, outed NKOTB member, Jonathan Knight in a recent interview. I have to wonder if her intentions were as pure as she said on Twitter....or if it was an attempt to regain some of the spotlight. I can say this though, he didn't seem too upset about it on his Twitter. If Jon really is gay, he will be the second boy band member to make it public (first being Lance Bass from N'SYNC). I personally don't really care because I will love New Kids On The Block regardless of his sexuality and I am Pro-Gay (obviously)! I just wish people would leave it alone and to Tiffany, I hope it was worth it.....

The Lost Valentine


We may not have seen much of Jennifer Love Hewitt since her show, "Ghost Whisperer", ended after a five season run; but 2011 seems to be a big year for her. She has a few projects coming out this year and some guest appearances (she was also nominated for a Golden Globe and might be heading towards an Emmy nomination as well). For her new movie, all she really needs is......Betty White? The veteran actress teams up with Hewitt for a new Hallmark movie, "The Lost Valentine". In the movie, Love plays a journalist who is working on the profile of a woman whose husband was declared MIA during World War II. The movie will air January 30th on CBS (Hewitt's former home) at 9/8c - check your local listings for time and channel for your area and if you want more information on the movie, you can visit this link!

Twilight Director directs Former "Mean Girl"

This is a movie I have been waiting for since I first heard about it being created, and I am very excited that we are only about a month and a half from its release! Catherine Hardwicke (you may know her as the director of "Twilight") teamed up with Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman (and a few others) to create a new twist on "Little Red Riding Hood". The movie is called "Red Riding Hood" and it will come to a theater near you on March 11, 2011. I would like to point out that this is NOT a kid's movie! See for yourself:

New Nick Lachey Music!


In case you didn't get the memo, I named my radio station "Resolution Radio" after a Nick Lachey song because I am a huge fan of his. He hasn't released an album since "What's Left Of Me"; but you are in luck, because he shared some new tracks on his website today!

My Superbowl Predictions


I was really hoping my two fave NFL teams would be battling it out; but since the Patriots lost.... The good news is that the Packers are still in it and still have a chance! I really think it will be the Packers vs the Steelers at the Superbowl; but how epic would it be for the Packers to face the Jets at a time when Brett Favre could be calling it quits (epic because they are his former teams). I am sad the Patriots didn't make it to the end; but I have faith in my Packers :).

Scream 4 - Will the 10 year wait be worth it?

Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven joined together once again to create "Scream 4", the long awaited sequel to the Scream Trilogy from the 90s. According to my sources, this movie will kick off another trilogy. This movie brings back our cast that survived the first 3 movies; it also brings us some new faces (such as Hayden Panettiere) that may, or may not, survive to see the last 2 movies. "Scream 4" will be released to theaters on April 15, 2011; but here is a sneak peak:

Interview: Abram Boise and Cara Maria Sorbello (from MTV's The Challenge(s))



These two were nice enough to sit down and answer my questions about The Challenges and their real lives; you can find them on Twitter and Facebook!

First off, thanks a lot for taking the time to sit down and reply to these. I might have more questions later; but these are what i came up with for right now.

Cara Maria: The grey team lost two of its members during the final, were you guys told that if you won that the money would still be split 5 ways and did you think that was fair? (no offense to Abram or Sarah)

CM: as long as a person DQ's due to health reasons they would still get a piece of the money. no one quit on us.... abram and sarah had to stop because their body made them stop. so i do not hold them at fault for that. They did their best.

Is there anyone from a season of the RW/RR/FM, that you have NOT done a Challenge with, that you want to play with/against? That could include someone you would want to play with in your alliance. Someone you would want to face in an elimination round. Someone you would just want to beat, period.

CM: Honestly I don't care.
AB:the truth is I dont watch the shows at all. So the only people I know are the ones I have done shows with, and even out of them- I only remember a handful. someone just sent me a link to one of the Infernos I did...even after watching it and seeing the other people and hearing their names I still dont remember them at all.

If there was a challenge where alliances wouldn't help save anyone, do you think the real competitors would win instead of the ones who coast their way through? Why or why not?
AB: I have actually never made an alliance to save myself from going in....it cost me on the gauntlet when I did not join when they offered, and I always make it to the end (unless it is a vote off like Battle of the Sexes II and you dont even get a chance to defend yourself).

Abram: Out of all The Challenge seasons you have been on, which has been your favorite (competition wise) and why? Which one was your least favorite and why?
AB:The Island was my favorite as far as Challenges go location and style wise- the first inferno was awesome because we had so much fun off camera! I have some pretty great stories from there! the truth is everyplace had something great for me- but when you are looking at things in a positive light you tend to find it:)

who are your favorite female and male competitors? (besides each other-lol)
CM: Fave Males: Landon, Darrell (Landon and D play a solid game and are great competitors), Nehamiah (awesome down to earth guy) Brandon, Luke, Vinny, (my homies from FM2) and Johnny cuz he makes me laugh. Fave Females: Laurel (hate her... love her... shes a good player... but needs to work on her people skills) Emily (shes a killer competitor and never complains... laurel could take lessons from her) and Beth because people give her shit yet she sticks around and absolutely cracks me up, and Carly syd and sandy and Mandy (my fresh meat girls) and Emilee is a sweetie too. Coral used to be a favorite... but due to her and Abram's romantic history I feel weird saying her name in the list.
AB: Cohutta, Ace, Landon I really liked hanging with Dunbar and Brad on this last one, Derrick, and Kenny because he is so damn funny. I always respected CT and Alton as competitors, but both are too on edge for me when at challenges....I like the easy goers. I dont really have any opinion about the girls- except for rachel- I had a crush on her in the gauntlet, and Laurel- as awful as her attitude is, I think she is a diamond in the rough.

Who is your least favorite competitor?
CM: Anyone who send me into elimination. and Chet.
AB: never thought about it- dont like to dwell on that sort of thing. If someone bothered me that much I would just walk away- this happens a lot for me on all the challenges. I just go off on my own and try and stay out of things....usually.

What do you do when you aren't doing Challenges?
CM: Paint (I sell them through facebook... facebook.com/caramaria) Make youtube vids with Abram (youtube.com/misscaramaria) and riding my horse..... and now onto making skull beads dreads which will be for sale soon!
AB: I am currently going on a National Tour to promote my kids book, The Star of Happiness. You can see samples of the book and order a signed copy online at starofhappiness.com I will be reading at bookstores, schools, and libraries, and we will be filming the whole thing. I also have a vacation rental, The Sun House, in Paradise Valley, Montana. I will be up there taking care of the place and guiding whitewater rafts this summer. You can see The Sun House and book it at bookings.mountain-home.com Outside of that I also sell my art and paintings in a number of galleries, or online through my facebook, (its under Abram G. Boise). And I continue to write for plays, TV shows, and film.

How do you feel you've grown and changed since your first Challenge?
CM: I'm much more levelheaded. no tears or tantrums.
AB: I feel as though much of my youthful wonder is gone....but it has evolved into something far more fascinating....i love the experience of life, and such a bizarre thing as the show is quite interesting. I feel more as though I am part of the production side than the cast side these days.

What are your thoughts on them bringing in the heavy hitters? Had johnny and tyler faced each other, do you think that the final result of the entire challenge could have been different?

CM: interesting to watch CT because he is a machine. but I'd rather see tori vs theresa and Johnny vs tyler.
AB: I think that it was cheap and ripped off both Johnny and Tyler. I thought it was lame. It took away from the challenge being a competition. But what are you going to do? I knew that something like that was going to happen. I dont know why it was Tina though, they could have had a tougher girl.

Which cast members from past shows are you friends with outside of the show?

CM: Nehemiah, Brandon, Luke, Emilee, Carly, Vinn
AB: I avoid being part of the crowd from the shows in my real life. Jeremy Blossom is the only cast I really talk to and consider a friend. Then there Cohutta and Ace- two of the coolest dudes you will ever meet. I want to go fishing with Brad.

Cara Maria: Tell me about your life outside of the show and how did you get into The Challenge thing?

CM: I am lazy. I like to ride my horse for hours and paint. I bartend to make money between shows. I submitted to real world a long time ago and 3 years later and several failed castings later... they called me for Fresh Meat. I guess they were holding off til they found a spot for me.

Abram: Tell me about your book and your life outside of the show (like real job and all that)
AB: I am a children's book author and will be on national tour promoting my current book, The Star of Happiness, published by SoundColor Productions out of Missoula, Montana. I am doing reading events promoting youth literacy at schools across the country. You can see samples of the book at starofhappiness.com as well as info about myself. We set up the event as a read-along with the kids at the school, and it can also be set up as a parent-invite read-along. After reading the book I discuss publishing, writing, and all about the work of being an author. The main focus of the event is to encourage children's literacy and the creative process. These reading events are free to all public schools. However, our publishing company only covers the cost for readings & signings at bookstores, not schools. It is at my expense as the author to do the extra readings at schools as a charity, because I believe it has great inspirational value.

If either of you could have picked the grey team, who would you have picked? Who would you have replaced?

CM: Wouldn't have changed a thing. Things happen the way they are meant to and you learn from them.
AB: I would want to be on the Abram, Derrick, Johnny, Brad team....its funny though- even without who is seen as the toughest guys, the grey team still dominated in the challenges.

What was your favorite gulag to watch?
CM: Not gulag- but the final challenge in Riot Act where Abram faced off against Brad. He looked soooooo hott! Grr baby grr! Every time I watch it I want to jump his bones again!
AB: The Johnny CT was unforgettable, but the best was not a gulag- it was the riot act- when Derrick went against Tyler, Brad, and Dunbar at the same time.

What kind of music do you like? Who is your favorite singer/band? (being a DJ, I have to ask haha)
AB: I love a band called Lucero- real southern rock 'n roll style. Metallica, jack johnson, jackson browne, rise against and against me, beethoven- ode to joy, and more and more i am listening to Bob Marley, I love the Rolling Stones and the Beatles.... wreckless eric, led zeppelin, jimi hendrix, santana, the doors, neil young, janis joplin- I dont listen to gangster rap. or too much metal.

CM: depends on my mood. Sometimes a lil classical... sometimes Sinatra.. sometimes some jazz and swing/big band.... sometimes even country! .sometimes alice in chains or tool or a perfect circle..... but never rap...never hip hop... never anything you hear in the clubs. I bartend and it stabs my brain to hear that crap.

What is your favorite movie/tv show?
CM: American Psycho and Batman Returns. Favorite TV show: Nip/Tuck even though it's over I was addicted. or any show involving Food. Unwrapped. mmmmm!
AB: Legends of the Fall, and a River Runs Through it- part of both movies were filmed in the home valley I grew up in out in Montana- but I love the depth of both= and all the pretty horses is a runner up.

Abram: I know Cara Maria's biggest fear is needles, what is yours?
AB: i am afraid of being afraid- Fear kills the minds ability to function- I enjoy the opportunity to be placed in situations where fear is the obstacle, and therefore self control is the goal.

Cara Maria: In honor of Abram's new book, what was your favorite book as a kid?
Hmm.... Loved Dr Suess. Also old fairy tales where there were no happy endings.
AB: I am going to jump in on this too- Rudyard Kipling just so stories, all of Dr. Suess, and St. George and the Dragon....Cara Maria really does like happy endings:)

Nicole Scherzinger - Don't Hold Your Breath (Song Premiere)

Here is the final version; can't wait until its official release!

Dear Brett Favre, its time to retire - for real


Football season 2010/2011 just keeps getting better and better for Brett Favre (seriously, he isn't having a very good year). First his team (the Minnesota Vikings) started totally sucking; then he got busted for those texts he sent to Jennifer Sterger while he was on the New York Jets; then he got fined by the NFL for being "uncooperative", and now this: Brett Favre’s Sister Busted for Meth. I was a huge Brett Favre fan; but I am an even bigger Green Bay Packers fan (sorry Brett). He has had a long, successful career though and I wish him the best. He has "pretend-retired" a few times; but always came back, but I really think this time is for real. Can't wait for the superbowl!

Carmen goes from DJ To Lawyer in new drama


I've been waiting for Sarah Shahi to get her own show since I first saw her on "The L Word". Well, it turns out that I got my wish! Sarah stars in the new USA Network drama, "Fairly Legal". She plays Kate Reed, a top lawyer who decides to become a mediator instead. The supporting cast includes Michael Trucco, Baron Vaughn, and Virginia Williams, with recurring appearances by Richard Dean Anderson (you may know him from a little show called "MacGyver"). I am really looking forward to this show and I hope it becomes as successful as other USA shows. "Fairly Legal" is set to premiere on Thursday, January 20th at 10pm (check your local listings). Here is a promo to tide you over until then:

Interview: Chris Koon

Chris Koon will be "Artist of the Week" next week over at Resolution Radio. If you aren't familiar with Chris or his music, you can check him out on Twitter, Myspace, or Facebook. Thanks again for doing the interview Chris, I really appreciate it!

Omarion comes out as Bisexual


The official statement

I am so proud of Omarion for coming out. I think more people in the industry need to do the same - be proud of who you are. I think every person who comes out is a step in the right direction towards gay rights, and I think it will become more accepting eventually. Now before anyone misquotes me, I'm not saying that we can't beat this thing on our own. There was a time when women and people of other races were looked down upon and treated differently, and times have changed; so I really believe the same will happen with gays.

Lindsay Lohan Is Free (Again)


One big story in the news right now that I do want to talk about is Lindsay Lohan getting out of rehab. I really hope that THIS time will be the one where she stays on the right path and only surrounds herself with positive influences on her life. Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a fan of hers and I do want what is best for her. I also really hope that she can find a friend that won't sell "her story" to the tabloids and that she can once again become a positive role model in young women's lives. One of my favorite blogs ever is the one that SHE wrote about Sarah Palin being nominated for office - it is a blog that EVERYONE should read. I hope she doesn't go back to jail for that Betty Ford Clinic altercation and becomes a box office hit once again. I am not sure yet how moving in next to Sam will work out in her favor (or against her); but I will keep you updated on my thoughts about the subject. I really think that she just loved the apartment and Sam gives her positive vibes :). UPDATE: it has been reported, since writing this blog, that Lindsay has said she didn't know she was right across from Sam and just loved the apt - see? :)

Album Review: Crystal Bowersox - Farmer's Daughter



Ridin With The Radio (Track 1)
I don't really like the music; but I like the lyrics

For What It's Worth (Track 2)
I think she did a really great job on this cover

Farmer's Daughter (Track 3)
Another one of my favorite songs off this album

Holy Toledo (Track 4)
Its a slow start; but I liked it after it got past the first part of the song (being honest)

Lonely Won't Come Around (Track 5)
I really like this song

Hold On (Track 6)
I have reviewed this song so many times already (and it was on My Top 50 for 2010); so all I will say is that I still love the song and it reminds us all why she should've won American Idol!

On The Run (Track 7)
Has a good beat and her voice is on target

Kiss Ya (Track 8)
I really like this song - definitely in my top few picks from the album. Its nice to have a song with a more rockish vibe

Speak Now (Track 9)
I feel that its a little too slow; but the song itself is good

Mine All Mine (Track 10)
I like this song - very pretty

Mason (Track 11)
She sounds great; but I just don't really like the song

Arlene (Track 12)
Good song - very powerful

Finally Got It Right (Bonus Track)
She wasn't an Idol yet; but the song definitely tells us she had some potential already :)

Album Review: Rihanna - Loud



S&M (track 1)
One of my favorite songs on the album and I first heard it on Resolution Radio :) (so how perfect lol).

What's My Name (feat Drake) (track 2)
I like the song and I like the beat; but Drake's part really annoys me (which is why it was her only song of 2010 not to make my list).

Cheers (Drink To That) (Track 3)
This is probably my least fave song on the album (if not least; then close to it).

Fading (Track 4)
I'm not usually a fan of Rihanna's ballads and this is no different - I'm just not feeling anything about this song.

Only Girl (In The World) (track 5)
It's not her best song (in my opinion); but it's not bad and I think every girl can relate to it (and maybe some guys too).

California King Bed (track 6)
I love the lyrics and the music isn't bad either. Who doesn't dream of being in a bed with Rihanna? (and there would be NO distance between us (haha)).

Man Down (Track 7)
The song is okay as a whole; the lyrics are good and I also like the beat.

Raining Men (ft Nicki Minaj) (track 8)
The song itself is pretty good; but I might be one of the few people in the universe that is not a Nicki Minaj fan.

Complicated (Track 9)
I noticed she yells in a lot of her slower songs and I don't really get why - its a slow song, you are supposed to be quiet. I don't really like the song itself very much either.

Skin (Track 10)
I have no problem with Rihanna being sexy or talking about sex; but I think this song could've been a lot better - it had major potential.

Love The Way You Lie (part 2) (Track 11)
I love this song and its nice to hear the other side of the story.

What The Hell

Avril Lavigne premiered her newest single, "What The Hell", at the NYE festivities last night and I thought the song totally rocked; so here it is!
