No more puppy love

This is a Donnie Osmond overload alert.

Not to say that we didn't go all weak in the knees over him oh, about, 32 years ago. We did. We'll cop to it.

And he's resurrected his career, so good on him, we guess. But he's becoming as ubiquitous as Ryan Seacrest, Jessica Alba and the Coen brothers. It was bad enough when sister Marie and her creepy doll obsession took up way too much space on "Dancing With the Stars." That apparently jump-started his path back into the Mormon-loving public's zeitgeist.

He's on "The Insider" and "ET," he's taking "Moment of Truth"-style televised lie detector tests (why?), he's on "The View," he's in the music video for "College Road Trip" (again, why?). Next: Osmond reunions! Vegas!

So that we will not be alone in our horror, we're sharing the music vid: Martin Lawrence, Raven-Symone, "Double Dutch Bus" and Donnie. It's Disneyfied! Enjoy?

From your blog I take it that you are from the USA. I am in th UK where Donny has always been seen as a star and where we think ourselves lucky when he comes here to perform. His cd's chart on the day they are released, his cd "From Donny With Love" is at present number 4 in the British charts.

Donny's and his brothers concerts were sold out with in hours and new dates need adding
and they have sold out Wembly Stadium for both nights.

So if you don't want him I know a country that will welcome him with open arms

About this blog

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
