Though we suspect the Kardashians have been enjoying the Kardashians a little more than us.
As we all worry about keeping our jobs, renewing our contracts and doing as little as we can possibly get away with for payment, spare a thought for the Kardashians this week who’ve signed the most lucrative deal in reality TV history, signing up for three more years of E! Television for $40 million. Gulp.
Still, all that money can’t prevent people leaking fake pictures of you naked in a kitchen cracking eggs into a frying pan as also happened this week…
Just when you thought they were no better than rats with wings, the pigeon PR machine throws you a curve ball, coming out with the news that they have ‘satnav brain cells’.
Yes, researchers have discovered a group of 53 brain cells that respond to the Earth’s magnetic field. It all then gets a bit technical and our eyes glazed over a bit, but if this is the case and they have some kind of superhuman powers, why aren’t they all in Hawaii?
The end of Desperate Housewives
Apparently, they’ve shot the last ever Desperate Housewives. Which is surely a blessed relief for everyone – except for a lot of Botox doctors in Hollywood – as it should’ve been put out of its misery many seasons ago.
DC writer Grant Morrison who helped define the character of Batman has virtually ‘outed’ his creation.
Talking to – who else? – Playboy, he revealed ‘He’s very plutonian in the sense that he’s wealthy and also in the sense that he’s sexually deviant. Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously
as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay. I think that’s why people like it. All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn’t care.’
But if Batman is now gay, then who else? People will be telling us all sorts about Tinky Winky from the Teletubbies next…
