American Idol Top 13 – Kate’s Escapades

I’ve been biting my tongue for the past few weeks, just chomping at the bit trying to keep myself patient enough to refrain from writing an American Idol post until we get down to the actual final contestants.  I love this show. This season rocks with the addition of Steven Tyler ahhhhh!…                   and Miss Jenny from the block. (Not my block, mind you.  The people on my block wear cowboy boots…or camo…or more often than not, it’s cowboy boots AND camo, which is a stunning look, trust me. But someone’s block, like maybe Beyonce’s block where people have perfect hair, makeup and bodies. Yeah, THAT block.) This season, I love, LOVE, L.O.V.E. me some American Idol.  Without further ado, here are America’s Top 13 contestants (10 picks from the audience vote, … Read entire article »

Kate’s Oscar Wrap-Up

The 83rd Academy Awards were held Sunday, Feb. 27, 2011. I love the movies. I love the celebrities. I love the glitz and glam. Suffice it to say, Oscar night is one of my favorite nights of the year. I’ve got all of this year’s Oscar winners here for you, but first, a few of my own bests and worsts of the night. Most Heartfelt Acceptance Speech- Natalie Portman Best/Worst White Trash Moment - Melissa Leo (Proving  the actress didn’t have to stretch too far to play her role as boxing mother/manager, Alice Ward.) Most Awkward Moment - Any time Hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco were on stage I was soooo hoping for the best with these two “younger” hosts, but feared the worst.
