Wendy Williams Show Feb 2013

Hey there! For those of you discovering POPgoesTheWeek from watching The Wendy Williams Show,  thanks for coming to visit the site!

As you know from watching, The Wendy Williams Show is a PARTY! The set of The Wendy Williams Show is more energetic and fun than you can even imagine. Before the show starts, music is pumping and the audience is dancing and grooving with the help of a great audience warm-up coordinator. Then, in between segments, the music is pumping again – so much so that Wendy and I must practically yell our hellos and goodbyes! In case you’re wondering – Wendy is the real deal – and I am infinitely grateful to her – and her amazing production team, for having me back on so often. Have you ever been to a workplace where you can just tell everyone gets along like family? The Wendy Williams Show is that place. Even though the mood is a party, there is obviously a lot of work to get done, and they all do with it a smile on their face – sometimes under stressful deadlines!

So what exactly is POPgoesTheWeek? A dose of celebrity news, TV and movie updates,  and a lot of viral videos! Come on, who doesn’t love a cute animal, talented kid, or who-knows-what-else creating a buzz on line?

Generally, I try not to be to be too mean about celebrity scandals. (although if you run into me with a cocktail in my hand, we’ll chat privately!) I love a nice drink among friends – so much so that I’m also working on a cocktail website (not alcoholic and non-alcoholic) called DrThirsty.com.

I love being friends on facebook, sharing pics on instagram, and tweeting about what’s going on in the world of POP Culture. I’d love for you to come back, or just connect with me somewhere online! Join the fun, or just say hello!

On facebook, I’m at www.facebook.com/brianbalthazar

On Twitter I’m @BrianBalthazar. Same goes for instagram.

Again, thanks for coming by! Reach out and tell me what you want to see here!

Thanks!
Brian

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
