Recently our 2008 eight-medal winning Olympic swimming champion smoked pot for the first time at a Michigan hotel. His reaction was a bit boisterous – the stoned Phelps broke all the televisions in his room, but later bought exact replicas so he could replace them before anybody at the hotel was the wiser. But we have to forgive Mr. Phelps since he’s been in training for most of his 23 years and this is the first time he has let loose.
Not too long ago we learned that Martha Stewart used a hand model for close-up shots in her latest book since she deemed her own hands too wrinkled.
Last week the still very, very sexy Susan Sarandon had her first face-lift. Susan is the mother of the statuesque and stunning 23 year old Eva Amurri.
We can’t speak of 2008 without talking politics, politics and more politics. This year was filled with characters, clichés and catchphrases!
It started early when Governor Spitzer of New York was identified as ‘Client # 9’ and ended in November when Jesse Jackson Jr. was identified as ‘Candidate # 5’ in the Governor Blagojevich investigation – you can’t make this stuff up!
The year also started with a no drama Obama campaign and came full circle with an all drama Rahm Emanuel for Obama’s White House Chief-of-Staff. Rahm gets the job done and that’s huge. It will be good to have a little ‘safe’ drama in the White House. It’s only fair since Obama doesn’t give the late shows and comedians food for fodder – Rahm will.
