Celebrity Big Brother

I am sinning. I am sitting next to The Soph watching Celebrity Big Brother. I’m sorry but there it is. I’m addicted. I can’t help it.

We’ve only just seen the last of the celebs (Ulrika Jonsson) enter the house and the comedy is already in full effect.

La Toya Jackson looks disturbingly like the product of decades of experimental plastic surgery that most of the world calls Michael Jackson.

But the funniest point so far was (when greeting Mutya Buena) Coolio did a classic ‘Joey from Friends’ impersonation with a very credible ‘How you doin’?’

I may have accidentally pissed myself right then.

I’m really looking forward to the goldfish-bowl voyeurism that this season of the Celeb version promises to deliver.

I’m not sure about Celebrity Big Brother’s Big Mouth though, it seems that it is being presented by a complete and utter cock who doesn’t have two braincells to rub together. The jury is still out on that one. But not for long, I suspect.

    Yep, I am addicted too. Love it!!!

    Did you and Sophie like Marrakesh then? We should compare notes! Are you going to blog about it?

    I should put some of my photos of my trip up on my blog…

  2. Sally says:

    ps did you realise that LaToya is older than Michael? ie she must be older than 50? her surgery was so horrific I couldn’t work out whether she was 40 or 60 at first…

    Urgh….I started watching it at the end….I’m not so sure. Luckily I’m in Egypt from Sunday, so will miss a week of it.

  4. Trixie says:

    oh, and where is your badge for winning wordless wednesday? I purposely gave you the horse one! lol.

    Oh, dear, what a shame! We don’t get that down here in NZ. We do get most stupid reality shows from the USA and Australia mind you. At least the unequivocal star of Celebrity Apprentice was a pom.

    But really, I’m waiting for my ‘perfect’ reality series ideas to be produced. It should only be a matter of time:

    1) Survivor New York
    2) I’m a celebrity, lock me up
    3) America’s next top politician

    Oh wait, that last show was on already last year.

    I’ve just seen a picture of all eleven contestants.

    I was able to name three. Whether that’s because they are all Z-list celebs or whether it’s because I’m generally not interested in them, I don’t know.

    Like the jungle one, I think I’ll be giving this a bit of a miss.

    But, I must say that Ulrika-ka-ka-ka seems to have scrubbed up quite well!

  7. Soph says:

    Masher – I thought how rough Ulrika was looking in the VT they showed before she went in. I think it’s because her hair was tied back though – she looks better with it down.

    And how well has Terry Christian aged?! He hardly looks any different.

    Yup, I’m addicted.

    Sally, we loved it there, thanks. Soph and I haven’t discussed who is going to write what about it. Perhaps we need to have that conversation. 🙂 Always willing to compare notes. And La Toya scares the crap out of me!

    Trixie, I’ll deal with the badge thing today. Promise. And you have a great time in Egypt!

    Allister, I think Celebrity Big Brother is for the seriously addicted, not the casual viewer. 🙂

    Masher, I know that in your world ‘scrubs up well’ is probably a euphemism for ‘I would’, no? 🙂

    Sweet Jesus everyone!

    Sorry you have to be told – “It’s a load of SHITE!!”.

    But I know that if I watch it I might get hooked which is exactly why I won’t watch it. In the same way that despite, in my business, being surrounded by the stuff I won’t dabble with the old Bolivian marching powder.

    To quote some oik from Grange Hill – “just say no!”.

    I wouldn’t mind if these people were interesting or even vaguely celebrated but they are a bunch of tossers and has beens and we shouldn’t promote them any longer. You know I make sense.

    At least in the first series we had people with brains and wit like Jack Dee but it has gone seriously barrel scraping since then.

    Now if we had Boris Johnson, Ken Livingstone, Malcolm McLaren, Eddie Izzard, Felicity Kendall (sorry, showing my age there), Catherine Zeeta-Jones, Woody Allen and Sophie Dahl – then that would be bloody worth watching.
