Billie Jean King Cup at Madison Square Garden

2 03 2010

Yesterday night my boyfriend and I went to the BJK cup and it was pretty cool. Participants were Svetlana Kuznetsova, Kim Clijsters, Venus Williams and Ana Ivanovic. The only spoiler on the night were two fat african american lesbians that had their arms around each other and sometimes when I moved, I touched their arms that were way over the seat and one of them got pissed at me. Well, I got pissed right back at that bitch and only than she backed off. The tennis made up for it though, definitely the last 2 matches. The first one was between Kim Clijsters and Ana Ivanovic and that was not on a very high level, Kim won 7-6 but showed that she was rusty after a 6 weeks dry spell on the tour. Ivanovic showed at times the brilliance that made her number 1, but was often very sloppy. The second semis was between Venus Williams and Svetlana Kuznetsova. This match was very entertaining and both ladies played great. Venus just came from a 2-in-a-row tournament win and played very solid and proved to much in the end for Kuzzie, 6-4. After that there was some entertaining and the class of 2010 for the Tennis Hall of Fame were introduced and Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe were in attendance as well. As fellow viewers I saw David Duchovny with daughter who acted really cute together and Star Jones with entourage of obnoxious attention-drawing people. The final was between Kim and Venus and was pretty good, Venus won 6-4 3-6 7-5 in the end and got $400000 dollar, Kim $300000 and Kuzzie and Ivanovic each 250000 for 1 set of tennis. Not too shabby.





Gossip; Ellen new AI judge, Rosie/Star’s reality show, baby news

10 09 2009

The big news yesterday certainly was that Ellen DeGeneres will be replacing Paula Abdul and becomes the fourth permanent judge on American Idol. During audition rounds they will have a few rotating judges like Victoria Beckham, Shania Twain and Neil Patrick Harris. I think Ellen is a great choice, she is funny, caring and knows show business.

Rosie O’Donnel and Star Jones, former ‘The View’ enemies that now bond over their hatred of Barbara Walters might get their own reality show together. It will be a combination of Oprah and Gayle’s cross-country trip with bits of Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie’s Simple Life thrown in. I would so tune in for that!!!¬†

Speaking of Nicole Ritchie, she became a mother for the second time yesterday this time from a baby boy named Sparrow James Midnight Madden, what kind of name is that??? And Katherine Heigl, comedy movie actress and star of Grey’s Anatomy is adopting a baby girl from Korea called Leigh. She seems like a total bitch so I feel sad for the baby!!
