VIDEO: ET’s Kevin Frazier Flawlessly Asks Brad Pitt The Tough Question Hosts Dread Asking But Every Entertainment Show Wants.

Published

on

Frazier slid in with the Aniston / Pitt question, got his buzz headline, and moved on.

Here’s the thing – working on a red carpet is HARD. All the entertainment outlets want some JUICY scoop, which means they want their hosts to ask often, icky, tough questions – usually with about 2 minutes or less to do so.

Unlike a long sit-down interview, where you can warm up the guest with pleasantries and ease into what is eventually the ‘headline making’ question, red carpet interviews, if you’re lucky, will run about two minutes or so. (And that’s if you’re with a big network or syndicated show – far less if you’re working the tough section of the red carpet where every other press outlet from newspapers and internet sites camp out.) There you may get one minute.

For Sunday night’s Golden Globes, the ‘big’ entertainment story for entertainment shows was that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were both there. That’s right, a now divorced couple in the same ROOM! But this isn’t just any divorced couple – this is BRAD and JEN. Once married, the last time both were at the same GG ceremony was back in 2002 when they were still together. And while it’s been established publicly already by Brad’s attendance at Aniston’s 50th birthday party in early 2019 that they are not only civil but friendly, nothing seems to get the entertainment news business more excited than a story about Brad and Jen, even 15 years after their divorce.

While celebrities understand that the shows want a juicy exclusive, they also lean in to publicists who do what they can to nip those kinds of questions in the bud. So a red carpet journalist is tasked with the near impossible: appease your bosses, who want you to ask THAT question, and keep high level publicists (who represent not just your target, but also ten other big stars) happy too.

Enter Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier, who is by all indications, the most friendly, non threatening guy you could ask to be interviewed by, who along with Sharon Osbourne got Brad up to the microphone.

Frazier’s honest, ‘the obsession… the whole world is waiting’ admission about what people are watching for, is a perfect approach. Literally, the first question, the potentially ickiness, diffused and addressed. Brad’s answer, one of self awareness – he knows that’s the deal, addressed it immediately and succinctly. (It’s also likely he fielded the question earlier with a far more clunky approach from another journalist.

“I’ll run into Jen, she’s a good friend. Yeah.” 

Clean, simple. and also, a headline. Watch Entertainment Tonight and I’m sure you’ll see that in their show open. Up high. You’ll know they got that byte, because it’s exactly what an Executive Producer wants.

Pitt seemed okay with the questioning, willing and comfortable with the chat. Arguably, Sharon Osbourne slammed the brakes on the dialogue with “Excuse me, excuse me, what about me?” as Pitt was answering. (cue the producers screaming at the monitors.)

But that aside, from there Frazier has his byte, and can transition in to the next question you have to ask every nominee and try and find a different way in every time: “what would it mean to win.” Another tough one, because there’s not really an answer, but it has to be asked. That’s why they’re there, and you need to ask because he’s nominated. (In Pitt’s case, the good news is that he won.)

So in a sense, for young, aspiring entertainment journalists, this is sort of a case study in what you’ll face on a red carpet for a big event. It’s not always going to be as fun as it looks when you’re watching it home. Frazier does it authentically, honestly, and briskly. You’re done, you got your headline, and you can move on.

Jason Momoa Was Hosed Down After A Dirty Dune Buggy Ride And The Photos Are As Hot As They Sound

Published

on

We couldn’t love him any Momore.

Social media is a bit of a double edged sword. Some days it feels like all there is to scroll through is overused quotes or endless tirades expressing personal opinions that no one cares about. But just when you think you might need to take a little social media sabbatical something like this happens.

Earlier today, Jason Momoa took to Instagram to share photos of himself being hosed off after a particularly messy round of dune bugging riding. And when I say hosed off I mean…shirtless…with a hose. Of the ride the Aquaman star wrote “like a pig in shit. 🤣🤣🤣hard to explain this one. but i had an amazing day. now i need a dune buggy. dune coming soon aloha j. @schaeffersgarmenthotel dirty pink 😭🤣😂” I fully support the idea of Momoa purchasing a dune buggy if it means he will share more content like this.

Of course fans went wild for the sizzling pics. One Instagrammer asked “Where do I apply for the hose guy’s job?” Another pointed out the obvious by saying “good god that is a man right there.” And finally one brought offered this very sage advice and said “wash your hands like you’re washing Jason Momoa.” Definitely wouldn’t mind washing for the full recommended 20 seconds am I right?

Disney+ Series ‘Muppets Now’ Reveals Shocking Detail About The Swedish Chef

Published

Bork, Bork, Bork?!

If you haven’t taken the time to check out the new Disney+ series Muppets Now, stop reading and start streaming! The improv sitcom is an unscripted, segmented series in which our favorite fur-covered friends put together a digital show. Think The Muppet Show meets millennials. I watched the first episode, which became available for streaming as of July 31st, and I smiled through the entire thirty minutes. It’s cute and campy and reminds us all why we love The Muppets so much. I was enjoying the childhood nostalgia of seeing Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang when suddenly our favorite gibberish-spewing chef came on the screen to partake in a cooking challenge. Of course I was prepared to giggle at the Swedish Chef’s horrendous attempt at cooking but I was immediately distracted and could only focus on one shocking detail!

Did you see it? Can you see what I was distracted by?! The stached Swede is wearing a wedding ring on his left hand! The Swedish Chef is married?!?!

I mean, sure, it’s not surprising with the sexy foreign accent and killer eyebrows but still, I would have never guessed the chef had someone waiting at home for him! Since the chef is one of the few Muppets to actually feature human hands, I first thought the ring might have belonged to a neglectful puppeteer who forgot to take off their ring. But I did a quick Wikipedia search and apparently the Swedish Chef has been donning the gold ring since 2010 and is known to be married!

I guess there truly is a lid for every pot.

Muppets Now is now available for streaming on Disney+.

Martha Stewart Responded To Chelsea Handler Recreating Her Sultry Pool Selfie With Some Shade, Compliments And An F-Bomb!

Published

We are all Martha-Stewart-Livinggggg for this.

Domestic goddess Martha Stewart has turned into a spicy septuagenarian and it has only made her fans love her more. She is besties with Snoop Dogg, she has no trouble roasting celebs and most recently, she posted a selfie that left the internet buzzing. At 78, Stewart posted this stunner to Instagram earlier this week:

Peep that pout! It’s safe to say that any of us would kill to look this good when we reach our seventies. Hell I’d give my left foot to look this good now. It came as no shock that the selfie went viral, so viral in fact, comedian Chelsea Handler took the time to recreate the selfie. With a caption that read “I’m here to take @marthastewart48’s swimming lesson. If I look this good at 78 I better still have a pool to show myself off in” the 45-year old shared this to Instagram:

Along with tips for party throwing and scenic tablescapes, Stewart is also known to have quite the funny bone and can give a backhanded compliment better than most. In a response to Handler’s recreation Stewart wrote “Dear Chelsea, I’m so happy that you like my post well enough to emulate it. I do think my pool is a little bit prettier than yours and that my facial expression is a little bit more relaxed.” THE SHADE! “Nevertheless you are a beautiful girl and F–KING too young to be emulating me,” Stewart continued dropping a wholehearted F-Bomb, “Continue with your comedy, your humor, and your amazing ability to gather around you political liberals. We need it!” And because she is the queen of good manners, Stewart finished the comment with “Love Martha.”

All of this is just goals.
