The Cardi B/Offset publicity train is still chugging along at full steam and just made a whistle stop at Offset’s parent’s house. Offset’s dad, Michael Woodward aka Tony Pla, had to hold on to his hat as he ran down the tracks and hopped on the back so he could add his 2 cents. According to Bossip, Michael did what a lot of dad’s do, he got on Facebook and wrote a lengthy post, calling Cardi a “hot headed female that thrives off of social media attention”, and accused her of posting that picture of baby Kulture out of “spite”. He said that the whole situation has gotten out of hand, that “psychological issues, depression and drugs make the situation worse”, and he wants people to leave his son alone. Who needs a Leave Offset Alone kid when your dad has a Facebook account!
It wasn’t the Modern Family wardrobe stylist responsible for that heinous crime against googly eyes. In September we were told that a “significant character” was going to die in an episode. That death happened last night, and don’t worry – you don’t have to scatter the floor beneath you with pillows in anticipation of falling off your chair from shock. “Significant” might have been a misleading word choice, because no one who appears in the opening credits died.
Oh they’re all smiling now. But just wait until one of them gets a script that’s only two pages long and a note for makeup that reads: “Corpse-y, but not like, ghoulish.”
Modern Family is rumored to be ending after its tenth or possibly eleventh season. Show creators Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd said at the beginning of this year that they’d like the show to leave on a huge ratings-grabbing high note, like a birth, a death, or a wedding. I was hoping the show would end with Haley Dunphy reuniting with her older, denim-slinging dirtbag boyfriend Kenny and getting married in matching jean outfits. But it looks like they’re going with a death, and it’s going to happen sooner than at the end of the series.
Julie Bowen who plays Phil’s wife Claire on Modern Family is about to make her own family a bit more modern by separating from her husband of 13 years. According to Us Weekly Scott Phillips, Julie’s “estranged” husband, is a real estate investor. It’s like what Phil, who is a real estate agent on the show, might do for a job if the characters on the show were as filthy rich as the actors who play them.
Your aunt Patty’s favorite show, Modern Family, is celebrating its 200th episode and contemplating the end of the road as it limps its way through its 9th season. And The Hollywood Reporter says that season 10 will probably be the last. That’s sad news for the ridiculously well paid cast. How will Ariel Winter afford the modesty pixels she has to carry with her at all times?
TV Guide Canada published a quote they say came out of Ed O’Neill’s mouth about how he feels his Modern Family TV wife Sofia Vergara should’ve won the Emmy instead of Jane Lynch for Glee. The quote went a little something like this: “I love Jane, honestly I do. I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character.”
When it got back to Jane Lynch’s ears (or eyes), she responded with a simple: “Let it go, that’s what we’re doing.” But it turns out, it didn’t come out of Ed O’Neill’s mouth like that. Either somebody was drunk (most likely) or a Sue Sylvester-hating force transcribed the interview, because TV Guide Canada issued a retraction and published the real quote:
“I’m one of Jane Lynch’s biggest fans. I love Jane Lynch. She is a genius. But at the same time I said ‘Sophia could win’ because … and I’ve only seen Glee a couple of … I’ve only seen Glee once. But I thought Jane’s role is rather one-dimensional. It’s kind of strident. It’s always kind of the same. I’ve seen her be much better. So I thought ‘Sofia’s funnier,’ and I think she is in these two comparative roles. Anyway, Jane won. But I was hoping that Sophia would.”
And Ed tried to clear it up some more by saying these words to EW:
“Last week I spoke to a group of journalists and one quoted me supposedly saying of Jane Lynch, ‘I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part.’ I never said those words and transcripts of the press conference attest to that fact. Of course I root for my dear friends Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen (and all of my colleagues on our show) at Emmy time, but I absolutely never said, nor do I believe that Jane — whom I think is an enormous talent — was undeserving of the award. I reached out to her yesterday to ensure she knew I’d been misquoted but I wanted to clear this up publicly as well.”
But Ed still said Jane’s character was one-dimensional and that she’s done better work… Okay, okay, I’ll drop the ladle and stop stirring the pot filled with this non-story. We can go all go back to sitting on the couch with our hand in our safe place.
