Commentary on Hollywood

Today I'm a little fed up with a few things in Hollywood.

First, the whole Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien thing --- I'm so tired of hearing about it. I think that there is a lot of blame to go around in this -- Jay and NBC included but I'm a little disgusted about the 30+ million dollar settlement Conan is getting to go off the air. Seriously? 30 + MILLION Dollars!!!! What? I think the whole thing is RIDICULOUS!!! I mean aren't we in the middle of an economic crisis? And Conan gets millions to "NOT" be on tv anymore. I just don't understand that!

Second, I heard on tv tonight that Tiger Woods is in rehab. Probably a good thing. But then they also said that he made $100,000 worth of upgrades on his room so it would be comfortable for him. HUH? The rooms were beneath him?

Now, I know that one shouldn't believe everything one sees on tv. And I don't . But still. If that statement about Tiger is even remotely true, it makes me sad.

And the whole Conan/ Jay Leno thing -- again -- makes me sad! People in Haiti could really use that 30 million dollars. And who knows - maybe Conan will give some - maybe even a lot-- of his money away.

Sometimes I think we need to remind these people that the love of money is the root of all evil.
And clearly -- there is some love of money going on here. Am I the only one who feels this way?

So- thanks for letting me gripe for a few minutes.
Been a busy week. Not much time to write anything that matters. Hopefully next week!
Have a great weekend!!!!

No Mindy, you are not the only one who feels this way. Our world is really out of balance and the money could definitely be used in Haiti.

Or to pay the poor underpaid teachers and nurses in this country. BAH!

Even though I haven't been keeping up with Hollywood lately (No TV in the family room anymore), I still completely agree with you on this. I didn't know any of this new stuff, but I've recently been finding that if we just do the exact opposite of the world, we'll be doing the right thing.

Thanks for the comment on my blog and finding me through Mandy. Your blog is great!
