Best Wishes, Sugar!


I’ve been in the hospital and wasn’t able to post this earlier.  Our friend and former Survivor runner-up, Jessica “Sugar” Kiper will face a new challenge, one more daunting than being on an island eating bugs.

Sugar will be one of the participants in VH1’s Celebrity Rehab.

The upcoming fifth season of “Celebrity Rehab” will be inhabited by Michael Lohan, Bai Ling, “Blade Runner” star Sean Young, Amy Fisher and former “Baywatch” actor Jeremy Jackson, among others.

Lohan is best known as the controversial father of troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan and last year announced his intentions to open his own rehabilitation center. Chinese actress Ling, known for her big-screen work in “The Crow,” had an unfortunate turn in the spotlight in 2008, when she was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport for shoplifting two magazines and a pack of batteries. Fisher, known in tabloid circles as the Long Island Lolita, grabbed headlines in 1992 when, at the age of 17, she shot the wife of her lover, Joey Buttafuoco. (Fisher more recently embarked on a career as a porn star.)

Rounding out this season of celebrity rehab will be former pro baseball player Dwight “Doc” Gooden, onetime Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler and “Survivor” contestant Jessica “Sugar” Kiper.

The fifth season of “Celebrity Rehab” will premiere June 26 at 9 p.m. on VH1.

Be sure to watch and send her love and support!

Survivor 22: Survivor: Redemption Island


UPDATE – FOLLOWING THE BREAK

Only halfway into the current season of Survivor: Nicaragua, few details of the next exciting season are being leaked to the outside world. In a stunning reversal of the past two years (when spoilers were rampant but true – and according to rumor, came from the fingers of the wife of a certain two-time recent Survivor loser), little legitimate information about the new season has been spoiled*, although a few critical details appear to be true…

Filmed back-to-back with the current season in Nicaragua, the next season will, according to rumor, bring back two of the most hated, yet loved, players in the game. Actually, make that three.

SPOILER ALERT!

Hit the break for details…

An Interview with Jessica “Sugar” Kiper


Following her impressive debut on Survivor: Gabon, Jessica “Sugar” Kiper was an obvious choice to join Survivor: Heroes vs. Villians, which premiered last week on CBS. After multiple trips to Exile Island, a sound alliance, and a strategy that made us realize she was far more than just a pretty pin-up model, Sugar made it to the Top 3 of that competition with hopes of going even further this time around. 
That didn’t happen, but she did provide us with one of the most memorable scenes in Survivor history. 
After a grueling post-premiere schedule of interviews and auditions, Sugar was able to answer a few compelling questions submitted by her fans here and from the SpoilerTV forum: 
H: How long did it take you to decide to do the show again when you got the invite to come back? 

S: I thought about it for about a second… 

H: Do you have a lot of interaction with Jeff or is it as little as what we see on the show? 

S: We see Jeff before the challenges, he walks us through… 

H: Is Jeff really that much of a stud? 

S: I don’t really think so. He’s not my type. 

H: Who is the most villainous hero? 

S: J.T. 

H: Who is the most heroic villian? 

S: Boston Rob. 

H: Did you guys get any heads up about Russell? 

S: No. 

H: Is Russell really that obnoxious? 

S: Yes. 

H: Where did those damn chickens come from? 

S: The “all seeing eye”? It’s a mystery! 

H: Why do you think you were voted out first? 

S: I can only say…that this edit is just fine with me… 

The Colby thing. Was it real or “selective” editing? 

S: Selective. 

H: You’ve mentioned the “real story”. What is it? 

S: shhhhhhhhhhh…..

H: Your “topless two finger salute” was a historical Survivor moment 

. Were there others we didn’t see?

S: Probably, but not from me. 

H: Who do you think would be a good host for Survivor if Jeff left? 

S: Steve Carell. 

H: Who are you rooting for to win the game at this point and why? 

S: I’ve been saying Tom, but honestly, I don’t care that much. I know who I DON’T want to win… 

H: Who DOESN’T deserve to win?

S: Who’s to say really? My views have changed in the last year.

H: Would you do it again? 

S: No, hahahaha…hell no. 

H: What are your current projects? 

S: I have a band “She Luvs Betty White”. We just got together and should be playing out soon in Los Angeles. I just got cast as Magenta in Rocky Horror Picture Show – coming in May/June. I just filmed a part in a video game, have a Coke Light commercial running overseas…other than that there’s reruns! You can see the UN-blurred version of “Sex and Death 101” on Blockbuster.

Review: Survivor: Heroes vs. Villians Ep 1


Take my word…this will be the best season of Survivor evah!

Here’s my take.

Watch for the Heroes to become flat out Villians. Led by JT, Stephanie (when did she turn out to be such a jerk!) and Colby (when did he turn out to be such a jerk! How dare diss my siss!), and prodded on by Cirie and Amanda, these NeoVillians will make Boston Rob, Russell, and Coach look like smitten school girls!

Oops. After what went on between Coach and Jerri, he already does look smitten! :)

Anyhow…Mark my words here: What we’re seeing is the Ultimate Survivor Blindside. You’ll see what I mean as the season progresses.

I’ve always admired Rob…he’s so honest (to a fault) and he really loves Amber. But that farmer’s tan from the wife beater had me lol’ing!

I’ve made no secret of my dislike for Russell. In fact, Samoa was (imo) the least effective of all seasons. Only because it was All Russell All The Time! Now with Russell intermingled with the other (for now) Villians, he’s a lot more palatable. And…once again I giggled at him being starstruck by his fellow meanies.

James. James. James! Definitely has the physical ability to smack down Russell. Let’s hope he’s got the mental ability.

Parvati, Amanda, Sandra, Colleen, Tom, Randy, and yes…Rupert…bit players

And who was it that said the biggest threat was those who “talk, talk, talk”? So true…

Finally…poor Sugar. Of course, I knew the outcome, but it was still upsetting. She’s so sweet and wears her heart on her shoulders you just want to hug her (IASHW)*

Super Hypocrisy


I guess the whole world’s waiting to see the Super Bowl ad sponsored by the Right Wing-Conservative-Political-Hate-Group-Disguised-As-A-Religious-Entity Focus on Family. Apparently the ad will document the decision ex-Florida Gator Tim Tebow’s mother Pam made to not have an abortion after contracting an illness while pregnant with him.

Resulting in what I’m sure some right wing Christian zealot bible-thumping idiots consider the…

Second Coming of Christ

I really don’t care that Focus on Family runs this ad…although I find it amusing that over a thousand employees of the organization lost their jobs in order to pay for it.

Nor do I care that the thousands of young, impressionable, and stupid Christian teenage girls and young women watching the ad will entertain the thought of putting their own life in danger when faced with pregnancy complications in the future…

Because Focus on Family tells them they might be carrying the next Tim Tebow!

What I do find quite silly is the reasoning CBS is using to run the ad. Historically known for not airing controversial commercials during the Super Bowl, CBS had the following comment to make:

“We have for some time moderated our approach to advocacy submissions after it became apparent that our stance did not reflect public sentiment or industry norms,” said spokesman Dana McClintock. “In fact, most media outlets have accepted advocacy ads for some time.”

Yet, CBS has refused to air the following commercial during this year’s Super Bowl:

Ok. Sure. It might portray a stereotype of a certain subculture of gay life. Is that a reason to not air the ad? Nope.

How about this commercial? Also refused by CBS?

Even less inoffensive.

Unless, of course, you’re a homophobic bigot afraid of seeing two guys kinda-sorta make out!
