The Master

Very, very funny, and a crystallization of why I stopped watching ALL pre-awards-show red-carpet blather about five years ago. It's actually possible to just turn the TV on when the actual show begins.Unfortuantely I occasionally need to check the crawl on the TV Guide channel, and all this week you can not turn it on without encountering Joan & Melissa. According to their own listing, they are still "live" three days after the event is over. Frankly, there is some doubt whether Joan is "Live" even when she is live.

Of course, that was too good to last.

Eye in the LA sky

Just realized that Tawny has recently turned the big 5-Oh!That means she could soon be joining Joan & Melissa on the crawl-screen of amusement!

Just kidding, Tawny. We really do love you.

aidon't know what made me google tawny little today...I've lived in So Cal for almost 30 years...i forgot about her on the red carpet! Thanks for pointing out all the things people can say when they're not scripted! Apparently Sam Rubin and his posse have a problem thinking and standing at the same time! And Joan and Melissa? oy! who's got the market cornered on plastic surgery in THAT famiy! I'll remember this if I tune into a pre-game show for the Oscars this year...stop me, please!
