No Filter Friday

I could make another list of the things that are irking me this week, but I think I'll cover one topic that seems to dominate the news.

I've unwillingly come to know too much about the personal lives of those in the public eye. I understand that being in the public eye means the public sees what you're doing and is somewhat interested. I admit I like my little tidbits of gossip. I just don't need or want to know the down and dirty details of every "celebrity's" life.

Case in point - Kelsey Grammer. I know way too much about his pending divorce. Divorce is painful enough. Do all the little details need to be blasted out over every network? Do I need to hear his divorce is being delayed because his soon-to-be ex-wife wants to re-examine his estate? He was cheating on his wife and she's pissed. We get it. That should be filed under "No Duh." Does she need to go on every channel and discuss it with these wild-eyed gossip collectors? Too much information. It's called personal for a reason!

I can't believe I'm bringing him up again, but Charlie Sheen. I know. I know. So he's hospitalized for "severe abdominal pain." Stop right there. That's all I'd like to hear about that story. Please don't inform me about the vomiting and diarrhea. Too much information. If this guy wants to kill himself, that's his personal business.

Katy Perry's new husband posted a picture of her waking up first thing in the morning looking like, well, like we do first thing in the morning. Really? How many of us would appreciate that photo being blasted around the world - famous or not?

I understand we now have 24 hour news cycles, and those 24 hours need to be filled with information. Isn't there anything else going on in the world that needs to be reported other than whether or not Mark Wahlberg is going commando on the red carpet? Come on . . .


  1. LOL! Mark Wahlberg went commando--I must have missed that--now THAT's news. ;-) Have a great day--I'm a new follower.

  2. Very funny and sad at the same time. I agree; enough already. I am a new visitor and follower via Java.
