So apparently there is a 7 year long feud between Shia LaBeouf and Frankie Muniz, which Shia has decided to hold onto till this day. How did I not know about this?! This is like when Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump had a feud, I love it when two people I dislike fight it out! Because it always forces me to examine things and decide which of them I really don’t like. Apparently the feud started when they were both on the family friendly TV shows Malcolm in the Middle and Even Stevens in 2003, but Shia re-opened the wounds in an interview this week when he commented that he had just gotten lucky with roles and that most of his movies like Transformers would have gone to number 1 no matter who starred in them, even if it was Frankie Muniz. Oh snap, Shia! When asked if he was worried about running into Muniz after the dig, LaBeouf said, “I don’t really hang out in Frankie Muniz-type zones.” Muniz immediately hopped on Twitter with his response: “Dear Shia LaBeouf, it’s getting creepy the fact that you can’t stop talking about me. It’s been 12 years now. I don’t know you. Thanks.” So who do I dislike more in this scenario? Despite minding his own business and simply asking to be left alone, it’s still Frankie Muniz. Sorry, he seems like a tool. Furthermore, by using the phrase “Frankie Muniz-type zones,” I think I actually like Shia LaBeouf now.
Speaking of things that I find disturbing, Snooki from Jersey Shore is writing a book. Ok, “writing” might be a generous term. She’s collaborating on a book. Still too generous? Ok, her agent and manager are probably quickly glancing at and approving pages from a series of struggling ghost-writers while Snooki gets drunk in a hot tub and makes money off of it. Better? Although I immediately assumed it would be an autobiography of sorts, Snooki has instead chose to go the Lauren Conrad route of writing a “novel” with a main character that sounds exactly like herself. A Shore Thing (sigh) will “revolve around a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore).” How does she think of a character like this? What an imagination! The best part of this news? Snooki tweeted only a few months ago about reading her first book and how proud of herself she was. And now she’s writing one! And it will probably be a bestseller! Take that struggling writers and the dying art of real literature!
And finally, the long-time feud between David Letterman and Oprah (which had seemingly been smoothed over thanks to mutual appearances on their shows a couple years back) has once and for all been explained thanks to a conversation between Letterman and Jon Stewart on the Late Show with David Letterman. We always thought it was just Letterman’s jokes about Oprah and Uma Thurman during his ill-fated turn hosting the Academy Awards that kicked it off, but it turns out it was all over a classic prank. I’ll let Letterman explain what he did, but come on, take a joke Oprah! Like you can’t afford to cover a meal for Dave! You give your audience cars!
