Like I’m sure most of you feel right now… I am bored out of my freakin mind! Contemplating driving a candy cane through my damn eye socket just to know I’m still alive. Soooo… that also means I’ve been trolling the entertainment superhighway and ran across a couple of interesting tidbits. In true WGUB fashion I’ve decided to line the info up in tidy little pretty stacks of powdery glam we like to call your HOLLYWOOD CRACK!!!
30 Rock: In real life, Tracy Morgan (the Show’s Tracy Jordan) has spent years fighting a civil war with his own body in the form of severe diabetes. A case so bad that he was once told by a doctor his foot was very near the need for amputation. Needless to say he got his act together and is one of the few Hollywood actors putting needles in his arm every day for a good reason. Sadly, no matter how hard we try… disease gets the better of us at times and Mr. Morgan recently underwent a kidney transplant. Thankfully it was a successful operation! What does that mean for us? It means that Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are going to have to step up and fill the Tracy void for at least two-week (which I really don’t think would be too hard). All-in-all… he’s better, healing, and ready to make us all laugh like our jobs don’t suck giant monkey balls anymore. By the way… what ever happened to that other cast member on the show within a show? You know, the white guy. Did I miss an episode where he left or something?
Pee-Wee Herman: Yup… that crazy LSD Flashback in elevator boots is back on the small screen people. Well, sort of. HBO has agreed to record Pee-Wee’s Broadway show The Pee-Wee Herman Show sometime in early January with plans to air it later on in 2011. I always got a kick watching this guys show (surprisingly… while sober too), and even though he was just a squirrel trying to bust a nut at the wrong place & time… home-boy is just kinda gross now. Sorry Mr. Herman. Truth hurts.
Arrrrrrrgh: What is the most pirated film of all 2010? According to TorrentFreak.com it was….. AVATAR. yeah, no real surprise there. Movie Studios thought the whole 3D thing would stop that from happening, but NOPE. In your face! Here is torrentfreak’s top 10:

Villa of Hate: Guess who’s selling some shit??? Mel Gibson’s Costa Rica estate is on the market. According to his listing agent Sandra Miller he originally picked up this little piece of real estate as a private getaway from the
jews paparazzi… then they found out about it and it lost it’s purpose. You can’t afford it so I’m not going to bore you with the details… just like writing about Mel Gibson. He’s funny.
Snookie: Some rich MoFo in Arizona paid a crap load of money to have A-List reality TV stars (wait… is there such a thing as “A-List” reality TV stars? Or is that an oxymoron?) attend a recent party of his. Namely… $17,500 for Snookie to show up and mingle. Is this guy for real? I wonder how much it would cost me to let Paystee punch Snookie in the face?
