VIDEO: Kesha Invades Jerry Seinfeld’s Personal Space. (and fails). Here’s Why Jerry Is Right.

Published

Not all of us are huggers. We know this. (I’ll admit I’m kind of a hugger.) But we now know that Jerry Seinfeld is NOT a hugger. At least not with strangers. Can you blame him? Watch the below video – and then we must must must discuss.

So here’s a little back story – while at the David Lynch Foundation’s National Night of Laughter and Song at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. on June 5th) he was giving an interview with Tommy McFly of 94.7 Fresh FM.

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of his interview, Kesha decides to ambush him for a hug.

“I’m Kesha, I love you so much…Can I give you a hug?”

He politely declines. She tries again.

“please?”

“No thanks.”

“a little one?”

“No thanks.”

In case you lost count, that was three times.

She saunters away, embarassed, and Seinfeld tells Tommy he didn’t know who she was.

“No thanks.”

HERE’S THE THING:

  1. Jerry is in the middle of an interview. Unless you know Jerry personally as a friend and know he won’t mind, it’s rude to just interrupt that. He could have been talking about something serious. Even if he wasn’t he could have been promoting something important to him, or simply making an important point. Mama told us not to interrupt.
  2. Whild I DO know who Kesha (sorry, Ke$ha) is, I’m still not sure if she walked right up to me I would immediately know. First, there are bright lights everywhere, and second, sometimes she’s got pink hair, other times she has that raccoon eye makeup going, and still another time she had silver paint going down her cheek. These “I’m an artist” getups these pop stars wear on the red carpets make them unrecognizable every time they’re at an event.  Hella confusing, I believe the young kids would say.
  3. Okay, third. When someone ‘passes’ on a hug just ONCE, laugh it off and blow him a kiss. If they pass a SECOND time, shame on you, walk away immediately. If you are crazy enough to go in for a third attempt, you never deserved a hug in the first place!
  4. Wait… I thought of one more… Why are we supposed to believe that all big stars (like Seinfeld and Kesha) should be bonded as friends by connection of celebrity? If a total stranger walked up to you, or me or one of your family and asked for a hug wouldn’t we all be a bit skeeved out by that? Without any context? I would be. We shouldn’t assume all celebrities are friendly just because they’re walking down a nicer rug than we are.

Okay, I’ll calm down now. And this comes from me, who is pretty much a hugger. I have on occasion hugged some people I’m just meeting, based on who is making the introduction, as long as there is some context and both of us are down for it (you know pretty early on.) I’m totally down with that. But I don’t blame someone for not being a hugger. That’s cool too.

Here’s Seinfeld’s own explanation, which I think jives completely with what I’m saying.

“I was right in the middle of an interview, it was a little off…I don’t hug a total stranger. I have to meet someone. Say hello. I gotta start somewhere…I’m sure I would’ve liked her, but I need to know who are you.”

Apparently they reconnected (still without a hug) later on in the evening, and all is fine, Kesha has recovered, and both shared a laugh. I’m guessing Seinfeld laughed a little more than Kesha.

AWKWARD: Ross Didn’t Like His Pet Monkey On ‘Friends’?!?

Published

on

Remember back in the 90’s on Friends when Ross got a pet monkey while living in New York City and no one batted an eye? Those were truly simpler times. Here in the jaded 2019, we just discovered that David Schwimmer didn’t like working with that monkey and now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

Last night, Matt LeBlanc stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his latest sitcom, Man With A Plan, but it was his chat about a particular Friends star that has the internet buzzing. When Jimmy Kimmel coyly asked if Matt keeps in touch with Marcel the monkey (who is actually named Katie in real life), Matt shared a nugget of information that I wasn’t prepared to ingest. David Schwimmer did not like working with the monkey!

“I liked the monkey! I like animals, and the monkey was really cool. Schwimmer… Not so much. He’s the one that had to work with it the most, so he was like, ‘Again with the monkey?’ But I got along great with it.”

Ouch. Right in the nostalgia. Apparently Katie the monkey wasn’t always the most cooperative co-star as Matt recounted the time she forced taping to come to a complete halt when she climbed above the lighting grid to hang out on the ceiling. It took about thirty minutes and a few mealworms to finally get the monkey back down to the set! Talk about a diva.

Check out the fun interview below! Click ahead to 3:05 mark to hear all about the monkey business.

VIDEO: The 38 Seconds Of Video Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Is Regretting Right Now.

In a video from last year, Loughlin’s daughter says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

As mom Lori Loughlin faces allegations she paid 500,000 to help get her daughter Olivia Jade into college as a member of the crew team – even sending photographs of her daughter on a rowing machine to create the impression she was an athlete – a video made by her daughter in August is making the rounds again for the embarrassing references she makes to not even caring about getting an education in the first place.

Follow @brianbalthazar on twitter.

In the video, an entitled Olivia Jade, a YouTuber followed by 2 million people on the video platform, says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

Why she hasn’t taken this video down yet completely escapes me.

Naturally, social media has unleashed upon her, although it is unclear whether Olivia Jade even know her entrance into college was a result of bribes, (if the allegations are proven correct.)

In either case, the social media celebrity had to apologize days after this video first came out, and is more than likely wishing she had taken it down entirely now…
