#anchorman

It’s been over a year since we last discussed the reincarnation of Ron Burgundy here on #sasstag, so it’s about time we had a catch up sesh. The continuation of the legend (no, really…it’s called Anchorman: The Legend Continues) got a release date- mark your calendars for December 2oth! Losing The Office this month is going to be a tough blow, but at least this sort of makes up for it.

Anyways, that date was actually announced a while back. The more pressing thing we need to talk about is that Kim Kardashian was on the movie’s set yesterday and it is sending shivers down my spine. Apparently, Kanye is making a cameo in the film (???) and Kim went to the film’s set in Atlanta to keep him company. I know that shouldn’t necessarily make anybody think she has anything to do with the movie, but the people working on this set are generally crazy– otherwise the first movie wouldn’t have been as amazing as we all know it to be. What if Kim’s presence on set gives them ideas they shouldn’t be having? THESE ARE THE THINGS I WORRY ABOUT, PEOPLE.

This photo

is what E! is using to scare the crap out of us with re: the Kim K thing. Maybe I’m missing something here but this isn’t the most solid of evidence…which is kind of a good thing in this case. What I am happy about, however, is this picture of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey also on the set, but actually acting out a scene in the movie:

Those are some new characters I’m very OK with seeing this time around.

If you are a #sasstag reader, I assume you lead a really cool life. Which means that on the weekends, you are out of the house, doing fun and cultured things with your awesome friends. You don’t have time to stay updated on the happenings of Hollywood and/or the world between 5 PM on Friday and 9 AM on Monday. The easiest fix?

Michael Jordan got married

So, it’s not a name we see in the tabloids a lot…but definitely worth mentioning because SPACE JAM WAS THE SHIT. Oh, and Michael Jordan was a really great athlete and blah blah blah. His second wedding had a casual 2,000 guests because he’s Michael Jordan and he doesn’t do small scale shit. Whatever.

Harry Styles, 19, is dating a 33 year old woman

Kimberly Stewart, to be exact. Yes, the daughter of Rod Stewart. Also, the sister of Sean Stewart- the youngin’ dating a recently divorced/cougared Adrienne Maloof. The Stewart family is really into the whole “age is just a number” thing, huh? The age difference might be cray but you can only go up from Taylor Swift, so more power to Harry with this one.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner Happened

There is literally not a single other event in the world that I wish I could attend more. What is better than a bunch of awesome celebrities (minus Katy Perry on that awesome comment) hanging out with THE OBAMAS? I checked, and I doesn’t get much better than that.

Cory Monteith is out of rehab

I mean…if Amanda Bynes is the poor man’s version of Lindsay Lohan, I don’t even know what this is. Cory’s trip to rehab was so sudden and shocking, yet extremely underreported or talked about because nobody cares about Glee. It’s like they have their own celebrity sub-ecosystem in Hollywood or something. Anyways, he’s out and tweeting about how much he appreciated “the support” and whatnot.

This is happening to me later in life than it happens to most other people, but I am slowly beginning to realize that I have a love/hate relationship with TMZ (and all other tabloid-y forms of media out there). I obviously have an interest in popular culture and knowing what important celebs like Tara Reid is doing at all times, but even I can admit they go too far on one too many occasions. Not necessarily re: the privacy thing, because most of the celebrities that make it on there luuuuurrrrvvvvveeee every minute of it, but more so situations like when Kimye is house hunting, and they post a headline like this:

Sure, I love a good celeb-related headline just as much as the next person. But the problem with this one is that homelessness is actually a serious problem in this country and in the entire world so maybe they could have just thought of another way to let people know that Kim and Kanye are having a hard time deciding which mansion to live in? I suppose that the fact that the headline was so attention grabbing that I felt compelled to write several paragraphs about it means it has done its job. But it’s still ridiculous and they could have said literally anything else about them not having a place to live and I would be significantly less offended.

I know we are not talking about a reputable new source here. TMZ certainly isn’t a website that should be anybody’s main source of information about what is happening in the world. But at the end of the day, CNN told the story of Justin Bieber and his visit to the Anne Frank house as if it constituted breaking news. They just didn’t do it the same way…

Believe me, I know there are much bigger issues with TMZ’s existence than their inflammatory headlines. But I thought they could use a friendly reminder about what homelessness means and that it is an actual problem people face. That is all.

#tarareid

As many of you have probably gleaned by now, I have an inexplicable fascination with celebs who have had meltdowns, are currently having meltdowns, or are on the verge of having meltdowns. I am constantly struggling to surpress my urge to bring up Amanda Bynes during nice dinners out with my friends (sorry guys), and I can’t get enough of Lilo. Not news. But let me tell you about somebody who has sooo not been on my radar until she went ahead and pulled the celebrity card– Tara Reid. Yup, Tara Reid threw a hissy fit and pulled out the “do you know who I am?!” card when she didn’t get her way (a.k.a. a discount for her “fame”) while shopping. Apparently she needed some new digs for Coachella and expected a discount from the store she was shopping at because she “is a walking billboard for them.” Hahaha. Hahahahahaha.

Hearing about this confused me because I didn’t think it was possible for a human to be so delusional. Clearly Tara must know she is not actually a celebrity? This is somebody who has not mattered to the world in so long, it’s surprising she has a verified Twitter account. Speaking of Twitter and Tara Reid- remember that time she alerted the paps she was making her way to LAX? I’m sure this had just as much influence on TMZ photogs as it would if I tweeted it- a.k.a zero.

Side note: she got the name of her “friend’s” band wrong– addicted, infected…it’s all the same to her.

Anyways, I’m not bringing this up out of nowhere. It’s just that we need to talk about the fact that celebrities must stop asking people if they know who they are. First we hear reports of Reese Witherspoon citing her celebrity status as a reason she might not need to comply with the law. Now this Tara Reid situation (much less disappointing but equally, if not more, annoying). The bottom line is, if you are a celebrity and we recognize you- you will probably know it (by we I mean any and all non-celebs that would be subjected to the “don’t you know who I am?!” card). If you feel like we don’t recognize you, we either a) know exactly who you are and don’t give a shit, or b) we genuinely don’t know who you are and certainly are not going to care once you inform us of your status. The bottom line is that this line should never be used. It is pathetic and makes you an even less popular celebrity than you were before you asked the question.

Maybe if Tara Reid had been walking around the store with her nipple showing, the salesperson would have recognized her and given her a discount. Just a tip for next time.

Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct

Don’t worry, I thought the headline was fake, too. This is not what I like to see when I search for pop culture news. My heart is broken. America’s heart is broken. Reese and her husband, Jim Toth, were both arrested on Friday morning because Jim was driving drunk and Reese was having none of this “cops doing their job” business. I’d like to believe she was just trying to be sassy, but no…she was just being stuck up and pulled the “do you know who I am?!” line. I wonder if Elle Woods will represent them in court?

Selena and Justin are becoming that on-again, off-again couple

It’s been a while since we’ve seen these two together, but Selena went out to Norway to see Justin’s show this weekend…so they may be back together. Which, even though this has no direct effect on my life, I would be very happy to see. Boy neeeeeds some stability in his life. JB posted a photo of the two of them on Instagram but quickly deleted it because he is a teenager and everything.

LeAnn Rimes gets caught buying Twitter followers

The singer/songwriter/homewrecker (a.k.a the original triple threat) made a sudden jump of about 50,000 followers in a 24 hour period, so people picked up on her not so slick attempt at being popular. Go home, LeAnn. #teambrandi

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have reached a divorce settlement

Thank the reality-star gods that be. It’s too much to keep track of this and her pregnancy. Unfortunately for Kris, he will not be getting a dime for being married to Kimbo and for having his name forever associated with hers. Short. End. Of. The. Stick.

Lindsay Lohan made time for Coachella pre-rehab

Lilo attended the music festival this past weekend with her little bro because that’s exactly what she needs before she heads off to rehab for 90 days- a short vacation in a drug and alcohol fueled environment!

Justin Bieber makes questionable Anne Frank comment

The Biebs is being slammed for writing that he hopes Anne “would have been a Belieber” in the guest book at the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam. People are freaking out about this, but can we just acknowledge that the kid had no bad intentions? At least he took time out of his schedule while visiting Amsterdam to go learn about Anne and her history when there are many other things he could have been doing.

Kevin Hart was arrested for drunk driving

The bad news: Kevin Hart has (clearly) been in a downward spiral ever since he begged to be part of Kimye. The good news: nobody got hurt. Also of note: Hart admitted to the cops that he was drunk the second he was pulled over.

The MTV Movie Awards happened last night

Rebel Wilson hosted the event, Aubrey Plaza crashed Will Ferrell’s acceptance speech and was apparently asked to leave the show, and somehow, Ke$ha managed to look scarier than Snooki.Pretty standard for an MTV event, I suppose.
