Today, if you wanted to watch a TV show about nothing starring a bunch of selfish assholes, you’d probably turn on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But in the 90s, there’s a 99.999999% chance you’d be watching Seinfeld. Jerry Seinfeld announced that the ninth and final season of Seinfeld would air in 1998. NBC wanted Jerry to stick around, but nothing could have kept him, not even the promise of $5 million an episode.
A month ago, an extremely awkward and random celebrity interaction happened after Kesha tried really hard to give Jerry Seinfeld a hug on the red carpet of the National Night Of Laughter And Song event in DC. Jerry reacted to Kesha like she was the script for Bee Movie 2; he was not having it. Jerry claimed afterwards that he didn’t know who Kesha was and that he doesn’t hug strangers. We’ve now got Kesha’s side of the story.
It’s kind of weird that today’s Comey Hearing wasn’t pushed to a later date so that the Hugs Hearings could go down, because I would think that all branches of government would want to get to the bottom of why Jerry Seinfeld didn’t want to hug Kesha. But my fellow non-hugger Jerry did talk to AJ Calloway from Extra and explained why he didn’t want to touch chests with that strange blond fan.
At last night’s National Night Of Laughter And Song event in DC, Jerry Seinfeld was talking to Tommy McFly of 94.7 Fresh FM on the carpet when one of his fans, Kesha, spotted him and wanted a hug. Like me to Jessica Seinfeld’s gross beet and spinach brownies, Jerry wanted nothing to do with Kesha’s arms and turned her ass down.
The Obamas hosted their last state dinner in the White House last night and their guest of honor was Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini, so they went full Italian and delivered the best of Italy! Guests were served authentic Italian dishes from the Olive Garden, entertainment was provided by world-renowned Hungarian-Italian superstar Ciccolina and both President Obama and Michelle Obama wore ensembles from celebrated Italian designer Z. Cavaricci. I made all that up. Like the White House party planners have taste!
Forbes has published yet another list of rich people and the money they made this year. This time they’re talking about the world’s highest-paid comedians. We already know that The Rock is 2016’s highest-paid actor, that Jennifer Lawrence is 2016’s highest-paid actress, and that Gisele Bundchen is 2016’s highest-paid model. Out of those three, The Rock made the most with $64.5 million. I thought that was a huge amount of money. As it turns out, The Rock can take his measly $64.5 million and have a seat, because Kevin Hart has him beat by a long shot.
