Hump Day & Chill

Coming & Going There's Nothing Like Daddy's Boy
Zac Efron
This week's Hump Day & Chill is brought to you by Daddy's Boy, Zac Efron. As you all know I have a thing for Zac and "yes" I follow him on Instagram

Well my boy Zac has been posting a lot of images from the set of his latest movie bearing the hashtag #wickedcrew which intrigued me, duh. So I surfed over to IMDB and it turns out my boy is portraying serial killer/rapist Ted Bundy in an opus with the title Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile - say that three times fast, c'mon I dare ya.

Awwwwwwww, my little boy is growing up. Also he is the perfect choice to play the monster formerly known as Ted Bundy. Why? Because Ted was extremely charismatic and good looking. How else do you think he lured his female prey?

Boy Zac
as
Ted Bundy
Even though I have included an image from the upcoming film the point of Hump Day & Chill is to ogle Man Candy, and that I have with nearly naked images of Zac from Dirty Grandpa

You can clearly see why he is Daddy's Boy.

Gwen & Blake Wig Out!

What's That On Your Head? A Wig!
Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton
What would you do for a Scooby Snack? Well if your Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton you would don wigs and go as Daphne & Shaggy to her son Apollo Rossdale's Scooby Doo themed 4th Birthday party, that's what.

Aren't they the cutest? Honestly when I first heard these two, who met while being vocal coaches/judges on The Voice were a couple I was skeptical. You know ratings, PR and all that jazz. 

Obviously they are the real deal and have lasted way past the shelf life I would have expected post Gwen not appearing on the show.

Good for them! 

Now that I've done my due diligence I'm going to grab myself a Snack, of a non Scooby kind and motor off to spin class.

Holla!

Blonde Oprah

Mrs. Which, I Presume...
Oprah Winfrey
She's back and she's blonde, get used to it. That's correct peeps Oprah Winfrey is giving you blonde ambition in her latest opus A Wrinkle in Time. She plays a character named Mrs. Which, is she a good one, or a bad one? We will find out on March 9th, unless you have read the novel, well then I assume you already know the answer.

For those of us unfamiliar like me here is the storyline:

"Following the discovery of a new form of space travel as well as Meg's father's disappearance, she, her brother, and her friend must join three magical beings - Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which - to travel across the universe to rescue him from a terrible evil"

Sounds pretty standard, but here is the ahem, wrinkle that makes this guy want to go see it:

"The movie, is about what it means to be a source of light in a world in which darkness seems only to proliferate. It also makes the case for thinking independently when conformity is the norm." 

Yes the perfect antidote to the times we live in.

Oprah is quoted, saying:  

“I felt like we were making the new Wizard of Oz for another generation.”

Color me very intrigued...Blonde Oprah on a Blue Monday indeed!

Need A Hand?

Hands On
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Ever sit and ponder "I wonder what Sarah Michelle-Gellar is doing" more than likely she is getting a hand. She is and I quote "obsessed" with a handy piece of furniture she owns, what is it? Why her very own hand chair, naturally.

Thus our beloved Buffy the Vampire Slayer always has something at hand to get the job done. She is never lacking in the hands on department and she has a hand and then some.

Some women have all the luck.

Hey Sarah gimme a hand sometime will ya? I need one for an extra special job.

After all wouldn't you give your hand to a friend? Of course you would....

Oh Daddy!

Who's Your Daddy?
Josh Duhamel
While I have never thought of Josh Duhamel one way or the other this image of him attending the premiere of his latest Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G. made me do a double take and say: Oh Daddy!

See Josh on the red carpet, see Josh dressed to kill, see Josh sporting salt & pepper hair, and looking like a studly Daddy.

Wow! Who knew all it would take for me to notice Josh was not coloring his hair?

Now that you've got my attention Mr. Duhamel, let's see if you can keep it.

Mic Drop!

Seeing Red (Dress)

Red, It's What Your Seeing
Jennifer Hudson
This ended up being the week of "seeing red" twice here on Entertain Me. While black is my favorite color, red is a close second. The main reason I like black is it looks good on me and goes with everything. I wished I could rock red nearly as well.

All this being stated Jennifer Hudson looks amazing in this red number she is sporting out and about in London. But WTF? with the fuzzy slippers Miss Thang

While I am not a fashion plate, those slippers are silly with a dress that compliments you to perfection and vice versa.  

Sometimes we simply can't have it all. A pair of black shoes, flats would have complimented this dress nicely. Hey, I would never sentence a woman to heels as I know I could never sport them myself.

Moving on, Jennifer you look absolutely fabulous, keep on doing you.

Hump Day & Chill

Happy Birthday Suit!
Christopher Atkins
Happy Birthday to actor Christopher Atkins who turns 57 today! You remember good ole' Chris who was fond of baring it all on screen in such films as The Blue Lagoon & A Night in Heaven and in photo shoots, most notably a spread in Playgirl

Being one of my boyhood crushes due in no small part to his fondness of showing himself fully naked on camera, I was pleased to learn that Atkins Birthday was today as he is the perfect fit for my weekly focus on Man Candy - Hump Day & Chill.

How did I hear of this blessed event? Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things, naturally. 

Now I am not sure where Tye dug up the image I am using as a teaser, but it is obviously a candid of Chris on a nude beach. That's correct it's Atkins enjoying the pleasures of being naked outdoors because he can. Of course a photo was taken, Chris never met a camera he didn't like when he's exposed.

So what are you waiting for?! Click on the link below to see the full image of the Birthday Boy in his Birthday Suit! Do it and do it now!!!

Seeing Red (Sparrow)

Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow
Jennifer Lawrence & Joel Edgerton
Here we are at the premiere of Red Sparrow in London yesterday. Red Sparrow opens March 2 and stars Jennifer Lawrence as some sort of dominatrix spy who kicks ass at here job, but actually has a conscience. Um, not sure how that's going to work when jobs like that usually require the constitution of a robot, but if she didn't have any moral compass there would be no movie.

See Jennifer smile, See Jennifer with her co-star Joel Edgerton on the red carpet, See them enjoying shits & giggles at the London launch (say that three times fast, I dare ya.)

Moving on up I presume. Personally I am on the fence about this one, it would have to get spectacular reviews for me to even consider stepping foot into a theater. Isn't that always the case with me? Nod your head "yes."

This being stated I am sure Jennifer will knock it out of the park!

Namaste.

Monday Motivation

Yoga Guy
Robert Downey Jr.
While I know today is Presidents' Day, that does not mean it is necessarily time off from the gym. Therefore some Monday Motivation is in order.

Some of you may or may not be in the loop that I do yoga once a week. It is not my favorite thing, but my body is addicted to it, and I listen to my body talk

Well I am trying to up it to twice a week and I needed something, or someone to motivate me to take it today. Hence this shot of Robert Downey Jr. in yoga action.

Honestly I am quite impressed with how flexible he is, something I am not. Which going more than once a week would improve on that situation. 

Robert and myself are also the same age, 52. Also considering everything he has been through in his life and the fact that he can commit to the ancient art and do it well...that's motivation for you!

So, I am going to bend it like RDJ today and step up my yoga game. 

Hey, it's Monday after all.

A Tale of Two Paris'

I See London, I See France...
Paris Hilton & Paris Jackson
"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale..." Theme From Gilligan's Island 

Here's the tale, it goes something like this Michael Jackson so loved Paris Hilton's first name that he asked Kathy Hilton permission to name his daughter Paris and of course being the game gal she is, she said "yes" - and the beat goes on.

Thus when Paris Hilton celebrated her 37th Birthday, well, yesterday the two Paris' took the time for a photo op, naturally.

Actually this is one time I am not going to state I would like to have been a fly on the wall because, well think about it. While I don't purport to know either of these women, I feel they would have nothing to add to my life experience, collectively or separately.

What slays me is that Paris Hilton is 37! Seriously, it makes me realize how much older I have gotten as I remember when she was doing the The Simple Life with Nicole Richie at a mere 22 years old!

Aye Carumba!

David Cook Gets "Kinky"

Steppin' Out
David Cook

C'mon Kinky Boots, start walkin'...!!! 
Singer-songwriter and American Idol Winner David Cook’s brand-new EP, Chromance was released today.   The EP features all new material that was written over the past year and also includes an ethereal mid-tempo spin on the Phil Collins classic "Another Day in Paradise" - https://soundcloud.com/ingroovesmarketing/04-david-cook-another-day-in-paradise/s-2Bu2o?in=ingroovesmarketing/sets/david-cook-chromance/s-YC25e  
If putting out a brand new EP wasn’t enough to keep Cook busy, in April he’s heading to the Great White Way for his Broadway debut in Kinky Boots as Charlie Price. “I’ve had conversations about finding creative outlets outside of being a musician, but the timing was never right.” While Cook is excited for his first starring role, he’s also aware how timely and relevant the message behind Kinky Boots is right now. “I am honored I am going to be part of this show and get to work with so many amazing people. I love the collaborative aspect of theatre too, the idea of being part of a creative team and working it out in front of an audience each night.”

Chromance is available through the PledgeMusic campaign: www.pledgemusic.com/davidcookas well as all other digital retailers.

Michael's Musings

Seeing Red
Michael Shinafelt
This week I am seeing red, not necessarily in a bad way, maybe somewhere split down the middle.

Perhaps Valentines Day had some sort of influence on my fixation. Or, perhaps not.

What did I do for VD yesterday? Fluff up your pillow & dream...

1,2,3 - 1,2,3 I'm gonna swing from the chandelier!

Let's bump crowns

I had a rockin' photo shoot this past Sunday

Beware of the cross armed hyena

On this weeks RHOBH Erika Jayne brought her assistant to Teddi Mellencamp's beach house and then stayed in a Hotel, alrighty then

Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton are friends, the world can rest in peace now

To my friend & confidant, producer Shani Bayne. Have a fun time skiing in France!

Sometimes, when I am extremely bored I think to myself: If I were one of the Spice Girls what would I do?
Special Delivery Package
Jon Hamm
Who else besides me wants to be a pair of Jon Hamm's pants? Holla!

Hump Day & VD

Feel The Love
Sandy Zacky & Mike Clifford
This week Hump Day is brought to you by the letters V & D, rather than "Chill,"
because "yes" beautiful people, Valentines Day falls in the middle of the week. 


What better way to celebrate than with Entertain Me's resident chanteuse Sandy with a "Y" not "E" Zacky and her singing partner Mike Clifford? Featuring the title track from their joint CD Love is Everything...duh!

Today is the day we are are given a spoonful of love via every media outlet that can spurt word vomit to make it the focus of the day.

So why not me?! However I am prescribing love in general today. Not love to that one "special" person. If you have someone like that, spectacular! But if not, you can still spread love. It's about being a good person today & everyday.

Get to it and spread your VD love!

Happy Valentines Day Peeps!

Listen closely to Mike & Sandy croon LIE after the jump!

Good Vibes

Go Johnny, Go!
John Stamos
"I'm pickin up good vibrations, Shes giving me excitations, I'm pickin up good vibrations (oom bop bop good vibrations)" - Good Vibrations, The Beach Boys

SHE may not be giving me excitations, but HE certainly is! Yep, I'm pickin' up Good Vibrations from this photo of John Stamos taking the stage on guitar with The Beach Boys in Florida.

Nothing like letting loose with the cool vibes of music to soothe your soul. It also does not hurt that Mr. Stamos has gotten hotter in his 50's than he has ever been.

The vibrations I feel when I see John are very good in many ways (wink)....

So come on let me hear you shout and let loose on those good vibes.

You know you want em'!

Thin Mints???

Cookie Monster
Jennifer Garner
Would you buy some Thin Mints from this woman?! "Yes" that's Jennifer Garner shucking Girl Scout cookies outside of grocery store and pimping them out on her Instagram account with the caption:

“Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints"

Oh really? I myself prefer the Tagalong cookies.

Whatever. I am sure the troop aided and abetted by Ms. Garner killed their competition sales wise.

Hey, that's what a celebrity Mom is for damn it!

Now about those Tagalongs...

Fashion It's a Thing

Birds of a Feather
Julianne Moore & Elizabeth Banks
Continuing on with my weekend fashion posts I just had to bring you a photo op I enjoyed viewing from New York Fashion Week which is happening as I produce word vomit from my keyboard.

Behold one of my favorite actresses Julianne Moore with her beautiful sidekick Elizabeth Banks attending the Tom Ford fashion show. How's that for name dropping???

Julianne as you may recall, or not was in Tom Ford's film directing debut A Single Man. Elizabeth has not only been in all three Pitch Perfect movies and made her directorial debut on Pitch Perfect 2.

These two look like they are truly enjoying each others company and are up to no good.

Oh to be a fly on their designer clothes...mic drop!

Crimes of Fashion

WTF?!
Kirstin Maldonado & Mitch Grassi
OK, as you all know I like the acapella group super group Pentatonix. Also some of you may know I was there from the start before they became worldwide superstars. "Yes" I covered them and know them and have the photos on this blog to prove it.

I will be the first to admit that even though their casual sense of style needed a little oomph in the beginning it was who they were and quite charming. Well that all changed after they signed with RCA a stylist stepped in and has been doing them no favors ever since.

Bear witness to the featured pic. Who in the F#ck told Mitch to sport the look of a 70's porn star, complete with a porn stache accessory?

Oh Kirstie, while I know you have eclectic fashion taste Morticia Addams called and she wants her look back.

Seriously you know I love you guys but it's time for a little push back on whoever is advising you on what to wear. 

Trust. That is all Michael has left the building.
