THREE BLIND BLONDES! SEE HOW THEY RUN!
Well, there was some interesting justice involving three blind blondes yesterday.
One was the daughter of fame who has wandered blindly through life while getting by on her charm and who her daddy is. That would be Nicole Richie, who served 82 minutes in jail for driving under the influence of drugs. She was arrested after witnesses reported seeing her car driving the wrong way on a freeway in Burbank. By the time the California Highway Patrol arrived, Richie was parked in the car pool lane. Driving the wrong way on a freeway and then parking in the car pool lane?!? Girls just wanna have fun, huh? Why only 82 minutes of jail time instead of the 4-day sentence she had been given? A jail overcrowding problem.
Another blind blonde receiving interesting justice is an actress who actually has some legitimate talent, but she's been doing her darndest (recently) to seemingly be trying to prove to people that she's a walking and driving train wreck! That would be Lindsay Lohan who's currently in rehab (again) and who received a 1-day jail sentence for her latest highly publicized problems. She also got hit with 10 days of community service and 36 months' probation. Lohan's small jail sentence was also attributed to the jail overcrowding problem. But why did Paris Hilton serve the amount of days she served and Richie and Lohan didn't? It's because Richie and Lohan weren't on probation when they were busted. Both women face jail sentences of 120 days if either were to violate their probations.
The third blind blonde received merciful justice of another kind. That would be Lauren Jones who was the star of the new Fox reality show "Anchorwoman" that debuted on Wednesday. The show was cancelled by Fox yesterday. Now if there was some real justice to be had, it would be to figure out a way to put the Fox executive in jail who green lighted this piece of television garbage.
NEW MOVIES THAT ARE OPENING THIS WEEKEND:
As usual, there's a number of new films that will make their debuts today. I don't see a potential monster hit in any of them, but I've picked three to mention. "Nanny Diaries" starring the (in my opinion) very overrated Scarlett Johansson is a film that looks like it will go straight to DVD after about two weeks.
"Resurrecting The Champ" looks like it might be an interesting film. It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Hartnett, Alan Alda, Kathryn Morris and Teri Hatcher. It's directed by Rod Lurie, a guy who strikes me as possibly being a bit of a "head case", but he always seems to provide us with interesting work.
The new film "War" is not the type of film I would usually go to, but something tells me this film might not be what I would ordinarily think it is and I mean that in a good way. It stars Jet Li and Jason Statham and I'm going to see it today.
MONDAY WILL BE MICHAEL VICK'S SENTENCING DAY:
We're told that when Michael Vick stands before a man who everyone regards as a tough judge, Vick will plead guilty to the charge of interstate commerce for the purpose of dogfighting, but he will not plead guilty to having ever killed dogs or to gambling on a dog fight.
Short Commentary: Well...If this is true and the judge accepts this plea, I go back to what I surmised yesterday. About this being a first offense, etc. and that maybe...this will be what will keep Vick out of jail. I must emphasize though that this is a BIG "maybe"! Hey, look at the way justice was handed out here yesterday.
