I spent so much time gushing over Aaron Tveit (and believe me my crush is NOT diminishing), not to mention Nick Adams, that I neglected to mention there was another of my favorites looking pretty wonderful on last Sunday's Tony Awards. I have profiled actor Matt Cavenaugh before on the blog, but this truly beautiful man with the equally beautiful voice deserves another mention.
I am not a hater of Sarah Palin. Even though I certainly wanted her and McCain to lose last year, I thought she got a bum rap by the press. I hate almost all of her policies but the attacks on her were directed sharply at her family and her intellence. I am someone who likes to see someone in the political arena who is not your typical Washington clone. (although maybe not as VP...). Sarah provided me with lots of laughs during the election, some intential, some not. I simply respected this woman as a hard working mother. Even though again, I would NEVER want her elected, seeing how some went after her kids was not pleasant to watch.
That being said...
Kudo's to David Letterman! Yes, without a doubt, the joke was in poor taste, really poor taste, but...when your on 4 or 5 nights a week for as many years as Letterman, that is bound to happen. But... Palin's reaction and comments about Letterman are just as bad or worse than the joke that began it all. For someone so outraged at his comments, she certainly jumped right into the mud with him. Sarah, I liked ya...not a lot, but a little but no more. Kathy Griffin summed you and your husband up quite nicely on DL the other night and I will leave it at that.
I am sure Letterman regrets his comments, they were in very bad taste, but Palin's subsequent comments are just as bad.
I profiled model Ryan Paevey before, but you can never get enough of a good thing! Ryan, who joined Major Models last fall (though has yet to make the main site). Many of you might know Ryan from his work with Scott Ashton for Rehab briefs, but he has done a lot more work. Some of it you can check out at his Myspace page HERE:
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 178 lbs
Hair color: Black
Hair length: Short
Eye color: Blue
Skin color: Tanned
Experience: Very Experienced

'The New Adventures of Old Christine' has been on 4 or 5 years now. Not sure CBS really respects the show as it has been moved around so many times. I was never really drawn to the show, but lately I have been watching 'Big Bang Theory' and 'How I met Your Mother' and through watching these CBS comedies, I have been starting to watch the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy. I have quite liked the past few episodes and plan on adding it to my tivo. I have always loved Wanda Sykes and the writing is much better than I had expected.
An added bonus of course is the adorable Hamish Linklater. Hamish plays Christine's brother and thier relationship is both interesting and risky for a prime time comedy. I remember Hamish from American Dreams but Hamish is also an accomplished Theatre actor with many theatre credits on his resume. The writers of 'Old Christine' also seem to enjoy putting his character Matthew in the bathtub, bathrobes and without a shirt as often as they can. Certainly one of many reasons to check out 'The New Adventures of Old Christine' if you have not already!
