Observations from a grumpy old man

  • MTV has ordered a new talk show to be hosted by “Jersey Shore” cast member Vinny Guadagnino. The series will feature Guadagnino talking to his guests in his family home in Staten Island, New York. Such are the limitations of having to wear an ankle monitor.
  • Some people are saying it isn’t right that the producers of the new — and very funny — cable series “Wedding Band” used the show’s star, Brian Austin Green, to get his wife, Megan Fox, to guest star on an episode. It’s hard to believe Green would be upset. If you were married to Fox wouldn’t you want to do anything to let the world know? It’s a shock that their wedding photos aren’t tattooed on his forehead.
  • Hostess, the makers of Twinkies, is going out of business. C’mon people! I did my best to keep the company going.
  • Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up. No wait. They’re back together. Wait. It’s over. Wait. Who cares anymore? All the talk about their love life is worse than the gossip at a junior high dance.
  • TMZ is reporting Russell Brand accidentally crashed his SUV into a homeless man’s cart and then helped pick the mess. It’s not the first time Brand’s been involved with something that’s garbage.
