The guy from Bevery Hills 90210 and Tara Reid are in this movie about sharks mixed with tornados. The first film was so well received by who knows how many people that tuned in to watch Kelly Osbourne, Andy Dick, Vivica A. Fox, among other celebs who wanted in on the Sharknado action too. The SyFy channel description for the first one was “super tornadoes suck sharks up from the ocean, hurling them at LA.” No word yet on sequels to Arachnoquake and Piranhaconda. Read on to see who is screaming and running from shark-infested disasters in the latest movie that is so bad it’s good!
Kelly Osbourne: Papa, don’t preach! Kelly’s in trouble when a shark comes flying at her while she’s on a plane in flight. You can’t expect to wear that flashy purple hair and not attract the attention of man-eating sharks. Maybe this was a shark that was friends with that bat that got its head bitten off by Ozzy during one of his concerts and this is the last revenge.
Rachel True: It is true that Rachel True was in that witch movie “The Craft” starring Neve Campbell. It’s too bad she didn’t have any of those spellcasting powers to protect her from the tornado of sharks terrorizing the plane in which she is piloting. They can’t teach anyone about shark attacks in pilot school if it never happened before. Hey, Sharknado can be a training guide!
Wil Wheaton: Wil Wheaton was in the television show “Star Trek:Next Generation” as an ensign and wore one of those Star Trek pins on his uniform. There are no Star Trek pins in Sharknado 2, sadly. But he is wearing a plaid short sleeve shirt and gets his head chomped off by a shark on the plane as the lady sitting next to him screams in horror.
Kelly Oxford: Kelly is a microblogger and that is a word that is not used to describe enough people. She’s sitting on a toilet in Sharknado 2 when a shark busts through the ceiling to feast on her head. That’s not the most dignified way to go. Sharks should spare the people in the restroom! They haven’t even gotten to relieve themselves of the almond milk they filled up on before the flight.
Andy Dick:Andy Dick plays a cop in Sharknado 2 and this must be an exciting moment for all of the Andy Dick fans out there. Andy was in the masterpiece of journalism known as “NewsRadio” and the movie “Dude, Where’s My Car?” Film buffs will remember that movie as an informative account of a guy who misplaced his vehicle and went through the proper steps to retrieve it.
The Naked Cowboy:The Naked Cowboy is known for being brave enough to stand in Times Square wearing nothing but his unflattering white briefs. Because a white thong would be pushing it. Give the guy credit for having a little shred of dignity. He’s got to strap on those boots everday, carry around that heavy guitar, and pretend that he is a bona fide shark-loving, nudity-loving southern boy.
Matt Lauer: Matt got to make the news and not just report the news for a change when he encountered a feisty shark in the newsroom. It’s reminiscent of that scene in the Simpsons where Arnie “Pye in the Sky” tells Kent Brockman “I wanna make the news!” Then Kent goes, “Now is not the time.” Then Arnie says, “You’re not the time Kent! You’re not the time!”
Pepa: Only the Pepa portion of “Salt-N-Pepa” was cast in this movie as a woman riding a bicycle sponsored by Citibank in New York City. Those bikes are everywhere in the island of Manhattan. But there will be no peaceful rides along Madison Avenue for you, Pepa, because these salty sharks are going to season your plate with a lethal dose of sharks!
Tiffany Shepis: She is known as a “scream queen” of horror films and has starred in classics such as “Chainsaw Cheerleaders” and “Pauly Shore is Dead.” Pauly Shore is like the human embodiment of palm trees and a stoner’s alluring drawl. Pauly Shore can’t really be killed if the ghost of MTV VJs has anything to say about it. But you can kill a woman played by Tiffany Shepis if you put her in Sharknado 2.
Judah Friedlander: He’s from 30 Rock with Tina Fey. Friedlander has been reportedly telling people that Sharknado 2 is the “most important film ever made about climate change.” Pause and think about this. We’re polluting all of the water, drinking up all the water, and shark-ing up the water. Yes, Friedlander was right all along.
Judd Hirsch: Judd was a taxi driver in the 80s television show called “Taxi” and now he’s a taxi driver in the 10s movie called “Sharknado 2.” Perhaps more kids from the 90s will recognize him as the father of that guy in “Independence Day” starring Will Smith. He asked his son, “You punched the president?” There’s no time to think about the president now, Judd, because you’ve got to swing on a rope away from these sharks!
The Subway guy: Jared Fogel is the luckiest Subway sandwich eater in the universe. There may not be Subway restaurants on Mars but if there are, Jared will remain the luckiest Subway sandwich eater in the universe. He even gets ti sit in front of a Subway ad while eating a Subway sandwich in this New York City subway. Shark-themed Subway sandwiches for the win!
Daymond John: Shark Tank is a show about inventors asking rich entrepreneurs for money and showing off their inventions. There were no tanks or genius inventors in this movie, but somebody should invent a tornado of a less deadly kind. How about a tornado with chocolate Clark bars? Clarknado. We got a deal.
Billy Ray Cyrus: Don’t break my shark! My achy-breaky shark! Well, it’s either the shark or a painful death so the sharks have got to go. It’s Miley! No, it’s not Miley but it is her country superstar father Billy Ray cyrus as a doctor. No wrecking balls came to the rescue in this movie but that would have been cool too.
Mark McGrath: There is a halo hanging from the corner of Mark McGrath’s girlfriend’s four post bed and these sharks want to destroy it. But shut the door, baby, and don’t say a word because Mark needs to get into his role as an emotionally struggling father with a son who gets kissed by Vivica A. Fox on top of a car surrounded by hammerhead sharks.
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
