|33 days until the OC returns
||[Aug. 14th, 2005|01:33 pm]
Hello again--so there's lots of update, so I'll cut to the chase. All of the photos are from: rachel-bilson.com, rachelbilsonfan.com, mischa-web.com, and wireimage.com, so props to them.
Rachel is on the cover of Elle Magazine and Lucky Magazine, and she looks gorgeous on both (Elle mag cover photo is old though). Lucky has a really short article about a week in the wardrobe of Ms. Bilson, and the clothes are very cute.
Speaking of magazine covers, Mischa is on the cover of Cosmogirl this month.
Adam, Rachel, and Mischa walking their dogs. Mischa's dog is totally attacking that other dog, and it's so endearing because it's a celebripet. If it keeps that behavior up, it could possible snag a deal with VH1 for its own show, since they've got their celebreality dealie thing. I would watch a show about Mischa's dog, but I am also a glutton for terrible television.
Rachel looking gorgeous (yes, I bolded it, she looks that hot) at the Lucky Mag party celebrating her cover. Mischa and Adam look cute too!
Rachel and Mischa again looking fabulous at the Fox Summer All Star Party. I love Mischbarts with long hair, she looks like a 70s sitcom star!
Peter, Josh (who still hasn't hired me and relieved me from my duties as a medical student, call me!), Adam, Ben, Kelly, and Melinda at the same party as above. There are two things that need to be said. First, Kelly Rowan is super hot here. She looks great! That rehab is sure treatin Kirsten' well. That said, I am afraid of her and Melinda Clarke. They look buff enough to beat up every single man on the Eastern Seaboard. Obviously someone hit the gym during the show's hiatus. Like, they are beefy now. Oh, and Melinda was just on one of my favorite shows, Entourage, on HBO, but since I no longer live in a dorm and now am only getting basic cable, I couldn't watch it, which makes me sad. I'll try to get someone to dl it for me one day.
Everyone looks healthy and nice, especially Peter wink wink. Oh, except Adam, but I think he has a clause in his contract that states that he will not get buff/get sun because he might lose the scrappy nerd/indie hero appeal. It would be like going from Anthony MIchael Hall in Sixteen Candles to Anthony Michael Hall in Deadzone. I was going to use AMH in Edward Scissorhands as the boyfriend as the reference, but I didn't think that many people would get it.
Russell Crowe, err, I mean Ben at the premiere of his movie, Junebug. And he's gotta be intentionally trying to look all Baby Crowe because this is just ridonkulous.
At the Hustle & Flow premiere, apparently he likes this suit combo
And if any of you saw Dukes of Hazzard (and I'm not judging you if you have...well, maybe a little but only because Jessica Simpson desecrated that Nancy Sinatra song), you may have recognized a familiar face. Nikki Griffin, who played cokewhore Jess on the OC, was an ex of the Dukes in the movie, so congrats to her!
And a shoutout is due to Jen at www.the-oc.org News Reel because she still pimps my site even though I haven't updated in awhile . Thanks, Jen! Be sure to visit her frequently updated News Reel over at www.the-oc.org.
And with the dawn of a new season almost upon us, there's going to be more people moving to the OC this fall, but I won't spoil it for you...the surprise will be better this way. Just know that Josh is ready to throw some curveballs at us. He's like Bartolo Colon, that one. And speaking of, GO Orange County Anaheim Los Angeles ANGELS of California, or whatever they are calling themselves these days. That's my team, and they will prevail over Oakland.
Lastly, it's time for a Laguna Beach discussion. I don't have enough time to recount everything that's been going on in the show...well actually, I can in one word: nothing. But that's the beauty of this show--nothing happens, but we can't stop watching it. My friends and I watch it every week and have gotten others to follow suit. This is how MTV has managed to stay afloat without showing any music videos during hours when people are actually awake. This and My Super Sweet Sixteen, which premieres tomorrow. I. Cannot. Wait. for that. "We're in a $400,000 car!"
First of all, these are my opinions. They may be offensive, but don't sue if this happens to get back to a castmember whose daddy is a high powered OC attorney. It's all in good fun. I'm from OC, so I'm basically making fun of myself.
Who else hates Jason? I DO. He's Colin Farrell lite and an asshole. I wanted to spit on him when he told Jessica to drive herself on their foray out to dinner. Who the hell does that? What a dick. And poor Jessica, I know she's afraid of not having a hot boyfriend (and she did date Dieter, so that fear is warranted---burn. I'm kidding Dieter, you're my fav and we'll go running from TJ to Laguna together one day--that was an allusion to an OC charity he is involved with, and all of no one will get that reference), but she shouldn't be treated like shit. Who the hell is he anyway, he's into a fatter, brunette version of Kristin.
Jessica is the nicest and cutest character on the show, which means she'll get pancaked. Jason will cheat on her, and she'll be crushed, and probably have to hook up with Cedric or something. She looks like Jamie Lynn Spears at times.
Alex M. Eww. Like I said before, she is a bigger, brunette Kristin. Their faces are similar. Plus she bought the ugliest Christian Dior shoes I've ever seen. They look like something that could have been purchased at Target, which is a great store, but she paid $700 for them. What an idiot. Seriously CD jumped the shark when they introduced those saddle bags. Over. Someone tipped me off to her myspace music site, as she is a fledgling singer, but I haven't visited it (I don't live this stuff, kids, I just watch it on TV). Kristin doesn't like her, and I can't believe I'm agreeing with Kristin, but I'm not really digging Alex M. either.
Casey: There is not enough time for me to go on about what is wrong with this girl, so I'll leave it at a Kristin quote, "Everything from her hair to her personality is fake." Very astute, Kristin. She was a pageant girl, and let me tell you something about that. My sister was in pageants, and those girls are all headcases. Seriously. Casey tries too hard, and it's suspicious that she just happened to move to LB. I'm just sayin'.
Taylor: WHAT the HELL is Talan thinking? Good lord. As a quote from my favorite movie, Mean Girls states, "I have a theory that if you cut off all her hair, she'd look like a British man." Not only do I not think she's that cute, she's got nothing to offer this show. She is blah, all she does is agree with Alex M. And the scene with her mother before the date with Talan made me want to vomit. It was disturbing that her mother would talk like that. It made me pray that they would bring Christina and Morgan back on the show, and that's very very low.
Cedric: Laguna Beach Water Polo. I think that speaks for itself.
Talan & Kristin love triangle. They are both whores so it should work. Kristin always wants what she can't have, and thus she's going for Talan. He's a player and he drives an Audi for chrissakes. Kristin's also a player though, so they are perfect.
Kristin looks cute this season still even though she's Miss Diva now. But even though she's a bitch and talks shit on every single person and their mom, she makes no qualms about it, and for that I respect her. She doesn't try to act like she's the nicest person in the world, she accepts herself for what she is, and if you can't deal with it, she doesn't care. And that's why Kristin is a true representation of an OC girl.
Alex H. Nothing ever happens to Alex H, except when Kristin makes her get numbers at D&B. Sad.
Steeee-ven with a PH. I still don't like him as a character, but he's cute, and that's all that matters on TV. My favorite part of the first ep was when he says, "What, am I supposed to be happy to see you or something?" when he was the one who called Kristin to come meet up with him! WTF? And once he found out that there was no hook up there, he went back to poor puppy dog LC, who is still waiting for him.
And poor LC, she went to SF for one semester, only to find out that she hated it and that she wanted to go back to LB. SF is wonderful but not for OC girls who think they are liberal and independent when they are not. But she and Stephen did sing Journey in his car, which was major points. And what happens in Rosarito stays in Rosarito, except when your family, friends, and everyone else in the world watches your hookup partner put a do not disturb sign on the door.
Lo: looks cute in some scenes, and not so much in others.
Morgan and Christina: still dispensible
All characters: no one has anything to say at all, I missed it when Trey actually had a cause he was trying to promote.
This recap was brought to you by Pomodoro, because it is apparently the only place one can eat at in Laguna Beach. I mean, it's good, but I dunno--it's a nicer Pasta Bravo, and that's just a notch below Olive Garden. Stay tuned next week when Kristin shoots off her mouth, and Jason almost cheats on poor Jessica.
The OC Season 2 DVD comes out August 23, 2005. And the third season is only 33 days away. Until we meet again!
EDIT Congrats to Peter, who came in at #17 on VH1's 40 hottest over 40.
