Checking in on Celebrity Couples: Adam Brody and Leighton Meester

I think the moment that Entourage, the greatest show of this or any generation, really hit its creative peak (if we can narrow it down to just one, you guys) (feel free to settle this very important and timely debate in the comments), was when Turtle dated Jamie-Lynn Sigler in real life. Because everyone on the internet was like: “Jamie-Lynn, you precious sunflower, you’re a gosh-darn national treasure and you can do so much better than this slovenly, directionless loser,” and Jamie-Lynn was like: “uhh, he’s hardly any of those things, his name is Geraldine Ferraro (or whatever) (R.I.P.), he’s a successful actor starring on HBO’s most watched show, and I think you must be confusing him with his character, which only proves how talented he is.” So we chewed on that for a while, and then we were like: “surprisingly good point, Jamie-Lynn, and shame on us.” That day, Entourage taught us never to confuse an actor for their character. (Thanks, Vince and the gang! #Entourageboysshare.) And because we stuck to that rule, we had a great couple of years. Really! Since J-LS first guested on Entourage in 2008, has anything gone wrong? The economy has been in tip-top shape, all our favorite teams have won the World Series of Sports, and Miley Cyrus birthed the Royal Baby or whatever. I give the last seven years an A+. All because we remembered our lessons from Entourage.

And then Seth Cohen went and married Blair Waldorf and screwed everything up. (Look: People Magazine coverage.) (Or, you know, here: Homeless Monsters coverage.)

I Don’t Know Anything About Suicide Squad Except That This Article Is Ridiculous

I have no knowledge of/interest in whatever Suicide Squad is but when I saw the headline “Suicide Squad Has an On-Set ‘Therapist’ for Cast” on the front page of IMDB I was intrigued. Was this a case of hilariously misused quotation marks? Why would it be news that actors need therapists when we all know they are all crazytown? If it’s not a therapist but a “therapist” is Scientology involved somehow? I had to know the truth. And the truth was so ridic that I had to annotate it:

How Was Your Weekend?

I was sooooo lazy this weekend, and it was wonderful. I just stayed inside and watched Netflix (I’ve finally started The X-Files, it’s very exciting) and read trashy books and listened to the rain go full monsoon outside.

(Co-BM’s Note: Please also take this time to read Fatima’s scary story and voice your opinions, as comments were disabled for some damn reason last week.)
