The Freakspeakers version of she who must not be named seems to have gone offline but at least she serenaded us on YOUTUBE first!! I don't exactly know what to think of it. she's weird and she got harassed off the net. But at least she sounds pretty good.

I got this on Friday from some friends and it seems to be spreading like wildfire! That look-a-like must be making some good cash these days!

Funny Video. Paris should hire that chick as her body-double!

So, now they are saying Paris is claustrophobic and has Attention Deficent Disorder (ADD) and didn't have her meds which is why she lost it the other day!

Hmmmm....doesn't seem to get claustrophobic when she's in a car or partying at a night club!

And...Barbara Walters got the exclusive phone interview with Paris!

Yes, Paris has been playing stupid all these years! OMG...you mean all this time that's just been an act?

Even Anderson doesn't buy the excuses. His interview tonight with Dr. Drew was interesting to say the least.

ivy said...

video is great! I couldn't understand first (with no sound) if they took paris video or it's an actress -lol

@jr- it was interesting. Anderson expressed his opinion of celebrities a la paris pretty clearly, didn't he -) It's kind of ironic that while he's slamming the amount of attention celebrities get he's spending a l ot of time on it on his show. To his credit he didn't mention her name not once today -)

jr said...

@Ivy: Oh yes, it is so obvious that Anderson refuses to say her name! He cracks me up sometimes! He talks about not putting your opinion on your sleeve but on this story, it is so apparent how he feels.

I thought it was funny tonight when they were talking about her turning a new leaf and Anderson suggested that maybe she should simply just perhaps "find a job"....wow...now there's a concept!

I'm sure there will be more drama to come....

ivy said...

I guess his "opinion on the sleeve" quote doesn't apply to enterntainment related news. He made a few comments tonight that are very much his personal opinion, like a 26-year old "playing dumb" not being cute I wonder what criteria he has which entertainment stories and people are ok to show what he thinks.

rudy said...

Let's bet:

what will happen first?
a. Anderson in public and announcing a "significant other"
b. Paris opens her Paris for tots daycare.
c. Bush wins the Iraq war.

Anonymous said...

I loved George Bush's trip to the city named "Hel" in Eastern Europe.

He said he knew that a lot of people had wanted him to go there.

Anonymous said...

Bush wins

ivy said...

@1:04 Yeah, in poland -lol He should've stayed there for another year and took his vp with him. Hope you've seen jon stewart today about bush visit to the Pope -)

Stewart also made fun of cnn's anchors going on about how they don't want to cover paris and covering it all day long, and anderson's clip was first -)

Anonymous said...

Anderson makes his feelings very clear on certain topics sometimes. If you've watched him over years, you can pick it up very easy. He's been on Paris Hilton's case for years, on the older, snarkier 360. He was pretty snarky on Monday too.

Didn't sound like he'd be coming back on Tuesday, we'll see.

Rudy's comment is very funny, but who knows? Anderson could decide to announce that he's gay if he ever got out of the news business. B & C of course are never gonna happen!

Anonymous said...

anon 5:12 am: you think he's gay?

Anonymous said...

vacation in New Orleans for the week. Bet we don't see him tonight. Larry asked him if he is living down there now. Anderson seemed to like the idea.

Anonymous said...

He likes the idea of living in New Orleans because the people there kiss his butt and he likes it.

Is SDJ posting as an anonymous now?

@SDJ if you read this thanks for your thoughful comment on the 360 blog, you said everything I was thinking.

Anonymous said...

That was a funny vid. I love youtube, too much actually. For some reason Anderson kind of annoyed me last night. For starters, I think maybe he is dying his hair. Secondly, he could have gotten much tougher interviewing that Army Corp of Engineers guy. He was giving Anderson the run around. Thirdly, I just wanted to show I could count to three!

Anonymous said...

What makes you think he is dying his hair? Adding gray to it?

Anonymous said...

no it looked blonder or more yellow. maybe it was the lighting or humidy or something.....

cassie mackin said...

As an anchorman, it is assumed that Anderson has his hair colored and if it is not done often, it obtains a yellowish tinge like other white haired and/or gray hair.

I noticed it was different also. And, sometimes the copper in water cast a weird color as I have had that experience.

Anonymous said...

Maybe the lighting made him look yellow.

tina c. said...

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who was a little annoyed last night. For me it was the Paris Hilton thing. It was funny for the first few days that he wouldn't say her name but now it's getting childish. I know he doesn't like her, and the press compared him to her (socialite status) but be a reporter and just get on with it.

OK, off my soapbox now.

anon 5:12 said...

Anderson has friends in NOLA but he also has enemies. Not everyone's kissing butt and he gets a bit of criticism from certain bloggers in NOLA. And I don't mean this one particular crazy blogger, but the normal ones. I don't get this attitude, you would think people would appreciate someone who wants to keep the plight of their city on the front burner of the news.

The less I have to hear the airheaded heiress's name the better. I applaud Anderson for not saying it.

anon 5:12 am: you think he's gay?

Yes!

Anonymous said...

Did you guys hear Larry King last night? Today we have Larry Birkhead. Why can't he and his baby go live in private? That story is even more annoying than Paris. At least Paris is just dumb, slutty and annoying. Anna Nicole is dead and that poor baby is going to grow up and hear all that happened.

Anonymous said...

I don't know why anyone is interested in Paris or Anna Nicole or anyone connected to them. It's certainly not news, but those days are over where you just get straight news and no Hollywood crap. I guess you have to watch PBS for real news.

Guess I'm just nosey, do you have these blog sites where he is criticized and/or tell what they are specifically criticizing him about?

jr said...

Am I the only one that thought it was odd that Dr. Gupta is doing PIP reports in Africa? Maybe he's going to spin it around health. I guess we will see.

We will soon find out if Anderson will be MIA tonight. Kind of makes you wonder if the NOLA trip was previously planned or if he went down there just because of Obama's recent comment!

Anonymous said...

June is the month for the Cooper family reunion and Anderson has gone before. My guess it was last weekend, this weekend being Fathers don't know if they would schedule it for that weekend but maybe so.

NOLA blogger said...

@jr for some reason I get the feeling that last night's trip to New Orleans was a last minute thing because of the Obama remark. It seemed to be to hurried and not much of anything - most of the reports I had seen on other CNN shows. And really we didn't see much of Anderson regarding New Orleans except for two segments. Personally I wish he would have been tougher with the ACE person, hasn't Anderson said to ask the question until you get the answer?

As for people not liking him down in New Orleans or the Gulf Coast those that don't feel that he and CNN are spending too much time on the negative aspects of the recovery, they think there should be some good news about the area once in awhile.

ivy said...

Everybody was right, JK is subbing for Anderson tonight.

@6:50
this time paris was news as an exapmle of celebrity justice in our country, whether it should be the first segment is a different story. Larry on Larry is something I don't get.
@tina c - what I find more annoying is how much time they spend on covering her when there are a lot of more important news to cover. I think not mentioning her name is the least he can do if he can't avoid covering her at all.
@jr - Sanjay did cover africa before, so I don't find it strange. It was unusual that he was reporting for "planet in peril", but climate issues are tied with health and humanitarian topic. Keep in mind that Jeff Koinange is no loner with CNN and they don't have a replacement for him. I wonder if Anderson is on vacation or he'll join Sanjay, (unless sanjay's reports were filed some time ago). He did have plans to go to africa some time this summer

Anonymous said...

anon 10:02: Isn't Jeff Corwin going to Magdasacar(sp?) soon? As I'm typing I realize it is off the coast of Africa so he could do a combo.

Anonymous said...

I think there needs to be more new news from NOLA. How many times have we heard about those trailers? Every time he anchors from down there, he is in NOLA? I can see the complaints people down there may have about not covering the other areas and other topics.

Susan Roesjen (sp?) lives down there and am sure can dig up some new stuff.

Anonymous said...

"Personally I wish he would have been tougher with the ACE person, hasn't Anderson said to ask the question until you get the answer?"

Maybe because the guy was about 10 feet taller than Anderson and Anderson was afraid he would beat him up.

ivy said...

@10:13 that's right, madagascar was on the list as one of the series destinations, series were planned for 6 months, didn't they start in january? Anderson mentioned plans to go to Niger this summer to do an update on situation with famine for 60 minutes. Niger borders with Nigeria and Chad where Sanjay is now, so just a thought. Who knows, of course, could be a vacation.

btw, I'm not an anon, I know, it's very easy to get confused here -) why can't people just pick a nick -lol

NOLA blogger said...

@anon10:33 I sent an email to Susan Roesgen awhile back asking why they don't cover more positive topics and her reply was that although they have done a few the main focus now is Keeping them Honest and getting answers from government officials.

By being so negative with their stories people don't want to go down to New Orleans. As for the rest of they Gulf say MS no one has reported from there since, I don't know when. They need volunteers to help Waveland needs tons of help and no one seems to know that.

Off soapbox - what I or anyone else says to any media person about the shape the Gulf Coast is in falls on deaf ears, most don't really care and others just go through the motions.

anonymousaba said...

Anderson is getting some negative press in Chicago, too. He couldn't leave out ongoing problems on the Southside, that tiny area of about 2 square miles. There's a weekly status update in Anderson's name. Not good for his ratings here. We hear accounts of local tragedies on our daily news, we don't need AC 360 to reiterate the facts. CNN is $$ cable. Why pay to hear the same negative press we can hear for free? Most importantly, what happened to a 360? All negative, all the time is not what AC360 prides itself on. Most of Chicago is magnificent. I can't believe 360 is ignorant as to what makes Chicago the great city it is.

jr said...

I also think that when AC360 goes to NOLA, they should do more of a 360 view and show the good and the bad around the area.

With that being said and the fact that they are only focusing on "Keeping them Honest" stories within the area, then the reports are always going to be a bit one-sided, IMHO. The "Keeping them Honest" pitch will work if exposing the story gets some results. Have there been any success stories with AC360 keeping NOLA honest? It's unfortunate but without showing some of the good coming out of NOLA, people will not want to travel to NOLA and will eventually stop caring.

It's also sad to hear that Anderson is getting bad press in Chicago. Chicago is one of my favorite cities and I agree there is definitely more to Chicago than what is going on in the Southside. So, if this report was a "keeping them honest" spin. Who were we trying to keep honest? Mayor Daley? It was obvious that he wasn't too happy to talk with Anderson.

anonymousaba said...

Mayor Daley didn't need to hide his true feelings towards Anderson and I'm glad he didn't. Whether you like Richie Daley or not so much, it's virtually impossible to deny that the city is a well-oiled machine with Daley's name written all over it. The way AC360 paints Chicago, you better not visit here unless you're willing to lose a child or two or three to violence. So untrue! In Manhattan's dreams that it could look as good and be as safe as Chicago is. Anderson is complaining about and focusing on the same few streets in a big city. So, how many streets can we name in each major area of LA and NYC which are insanely dangerous? But, I don't see him complaining about the violence there. Chicago residents are proud of their city and their families. Personally, I'm offended that he won't get off his horse riding those few blocks. For every tragedy in that hood, I can show you 10 times that amount in teen success stories in areas of the north, west and NW side. Daley is honest. He doesn't need Anderson to point out the poverty, violence and destruction in Englewood.

ivy said...

@nola blogger, @jr

positive or negative, I wish they would have more reports on problems in NOLA period, when they're doing a show from there! Anderson barely had 2-3 reports from NOLA having a 2-hour program. What's the point of going there at all if you have more time spent on "heiress" or "her", then on area's issues.

And to the question of anderson's hair color yesterday. Don't you get it... He's channeling Paris! Or his lighting person thinks so -)

@anonimousaba

I've never been to chicago, but I didn't get the impression from the show it's dangerous to go there. They did not explore the reasons in depth, but they focused of a very partucular problem of highschool kids shottings in a particular area, not the crime level in the city of chigago in general.

Anonymous said...

What on earth is wrong with AC360 focusing on a very serious issue of school kids being murdered? No reasonable person believes that ALL of Chicago is Dodge City, but for some people to think we shouldn't hear about this troubling and sad occurrence in Chicago is just mind boggling to me. I was glad to see Anderson focusing on these inner city kids whose lives are just as important as Natalee Holloway's or these other individuals who get all of the media attention. 360 should be commended for breaking out of the usual "white girl missing" mold and highlighting the senseless deaths of these kids. 31 dead kids is nothing to gloss over and pretend that it's not happening. I hope the positive side of Chicago will be seen too, because I'm sure there are kids who are succeeding, but I don't think AC360 was wrong in showing what they did of the city.

There is a whole bunch of them abo8ut internet addiction and going to narcotics anonnymous meetings and she even sang a song to Carter. Wow, to quote AC I'm "verklempt"

anonymousaba said...

anonymous 6:46 & 8:54, and what do YOU achieve personally by hawking your prejudices against SDJ on a blog? Why not be thankful that you and yours are free from addictions and complications? Perfection is an ability that's tough to grasp. I commend you for your obtainment of a perfect life, but please let us show a little compassion for those individials still working on theirs. I'm proud of SDJ's need to right her wrong's. Her willingness to address weaknesses is testament to her inner strength. I wish her well in her difficult journey for a better life for herself and her family.
This is the internet, it's not the real world where we have to deal with certain persons 24/7.

anonymousaba said...

The violent death of an innocent kid is front page on the Sun-Times with a running total. These cases of school kids in the line of fire are not being ignored. However, a paralell article will often report the successes of minority youth in similar domicles and circumstances would be a truer platform for 360 to take. The fact that basic cable in Chicago costs approximately $60 monthly per household makes you wonder what CNN is thinking. Why bother to pay to see a canned, one sided version of the same story we see full circle? The CPS system, the Mayor and his entourage are all addressing the issue openly and yes, they care.

Anonymous said...

In reference to SDJ, I personally do not want to see tapes of someone who is working through their 12 step program, personal problems and struggles. or "the world according to SDJ".

Most of us are not co-dependent. I do not like to see people reinventing themselves in a 48 hour period.

anonymousaba said...

I can appreciate those not wanting to experience SDJ's "reinvention" of herself. However, it's HERE where I learned she filmed videos parlaying her life & times. If you don't want to get wet, don't step in the swimmingpool. I still don't understand how SDJ can aggravate us with her solo quest to better her life. Why not live and let live?

If that person has problems, she should probably work on them off-line. Her takeover of this blog was irritating and tiresome and it's a relief not to see her name here as frequently. Maybe Christianne will keep it updated more now that the other one is gone.

Anonymous said...

I never heard anything about the problems in the Chicago school system until 360 reported it. For those of us who don't read the Chicago Sun Times, it was rather shocking news and something that needed to be covered and I think it's great that they did.

marie said...

That Paris video is so wierd and yet I can see her doing all that, LOL!!

anonymousaba said...

Problems in that portion of the Englewood hood are exclusive to a few mile radius, which is by not the entire Chicago Public School system. Infact, the problem occurs repeatedly at the same school. The tragedies are reported in the Chgo Tribune, too and also reported on the 10 pm news, Channels 2,5 & 7. The Chicago Reader (free), The Red Eye (free) and Today's Chicago Woman (free). What's ironic is that all the above approach both the tragedies as well as measures taken or anticipated to alleviate the deadly atrocities. There's the alternative success stories,too, to fairly balance the negative, but necessary reports.

anonymousaba said...

Thanks, but no thanks, anon 10:43. I'll stick with the law. I'd never make it in social work.

If she wants to use the internet as her venue to vent while working out her problems and it's not here on this blog, why should it matter to us that she has her stuff on youtube? We don't have to access it ever.

Anyone know where Anderson is? The boy with the rare form of terminal cancer just graduated from HS. His mom took a pic of him and AC when they visited CNN when they were at Sloan Kettering.

As a favor to Christiane, I'm going to step in and ask that the slagging of Sharla stop. Now.

I am perplexed and a little upset about the situation only because I thought I really liked his reporting. Another instance that reminds me that we all know little to nothing about people on TV.
