A lot of you have been telling me that you miss my celebrity snark, and/or my Real Housewives recaps. (And some others have told me that they don’t watch the RH of anything and that the recaps drag down the blog.) I didn’t purposely stop writing the recaps of the Real Housewives franchise, I was just so disenchanted with it after the suicide that I thought I’d be better off not touching it.
Sunday is kind of dead blogging day, so maybe I’ll use this day to discuss little bits of pop culture that interest me? What do you think?
First up, La Lohan’s “comeback” on SNL last night.
Here are my thoughts: I just can’t get over what she did to her face. It’s ravaged. Can you have a comeback if you look SO SO terrible? Its obvious that she doesn’t listen to anyone because if she did, she would go right back to her red hair. In almost every skit they had her in red wigs and she looked noticeably better. The “new old Lindsay Lohan” should have had red hair.
As for her performance, it was spotty. There were moments where her old Lindsayness shined through, gravely voice, cute personality. BUT she read from cue cards and flubbed some lines… which wasn’t the main problem, it was that she was treated with kid gloves. Not in that they didn’t poke fun at her checkered past, in that the SNL cast did all the heavy comedic lifting. She wasn’t in that many skits and when she was in them, she didn’t have that many lines.
So, do I think she can have a comeback? Yea maybe. But in what role? She can’t play someone under 30 with her face looking like a bloated ball of injectables, although her body looked great through out. Unless she took a role like Angelina Jolie in Gia, or Anne Hatheway in Rachel Gettting Married… All I know is she definitely cannot play a cute kid anymore. I’d be interested in seeing her in some serious roles.
I usually skip Lindsay articles and I kind of wrote her off in my head as a lost cause, but last night made me want to route for her again even though it was somewhat sad, and so maybe her mission was accomplished?
Anyway, in closing, the best skit of the night, BY FAR, at least to me, The Real Housewives of Disney:
I actually had real out loud guffaws from this skit.
What did you think of her performance?
