The new girl

Can´t wait!!! It starts in a few minutes!!! “The new girl” is FOX´s new show. Zooey Deschanel is the star of this show. She is a korky, geeky, let´s just say weird but adorable girl who after a breakup moves to live with three guys. Just watch the video above and tune on your tv to watch it on FOX, channel 5.

If you still want to read more this is what Fox.com says:

NEW GIRL (working title) is a new single-camera comedy from Liz Meriwether (“No Strings Attached”) that features a young ensemble cast and takes a fresh and outrageous look at modern male/female relationships.

JESS DAY (Zooey Deschanel, “(500) Days of Summer”) is an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn’t. Although she’s dorky and awkward, she’s comfortable in her own skin. More prone to friendships with women, she’s not used to hanging with the boys – especially at home.

Of the three male roommates, NICK (Jake Johnson, “No Strings Attached”) is the most grounded. He had big plans for life, but somewhere along the way, he stopped caring and became a bartender. Usually the smartest guy in the room, he has an uncanny knack for reading people and uses humor to deflect everyone and everything. SCHMIDT (Max Greenfield, “Ugly Betty”) is a hustling young professional who fancies himself a modern-day Casanova. Though his heart is usually in the right place, he’s always scheming ways to climb the social ladder and is driven by an immature and almost obsessive urge to be on “the scene.” Viewing Jess as a gateway into the elusive female mind, as well as a personal project, Schmidt encourages the guys to bring Jess into the apartment. The third roommate, COACH (Damon Wayans Jr., “The Underground”), is a former high school athlete who currently makes his living as a personal trainer. Set in his ways and with a take-it-or-leave-it attitude to dating, Coach is most comfortable when he’s in the gym. Though he’ll never admit it, Coach’s macho athletic exterior is actually a cover for his shyness around women, and he struggles to translate his personal confidence into conversation, preferring to speak in sports metaphors – or not at all.

Rounding out this group is Jess’ childhood best friend, CECE (Hannah Simone, “Beautiful People”), a deadpan, somewhat cynical model who blossomed after outgrowing her promiscuous adolescent years. She has the street smarts Jess lacks and spends a lot of time doling out no-nonsense relationship advice that only a professional model could give. She and Jess balance each other well and accept each other despite their faults, making Cece the perfect complement to Jess.

As their relationships progress, the five friends come to realize they need each other more than they ever thought they would and end up forming a charmingly dysfunctional family.

NEW GIRL (working title) is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Liz Meriwether. Meriwether, Jake Kasdan (“The TV Set,” “Freaks & Geeks”), Peter Chernin (TERRA NOVA), Katherine Pope (TERRA NOVA), Dave Finkel (“United States of Tara,” “30 Rock”) and Brett Baer (“United States of Tara,” “30 Rock”) are executive producers. Kasdan directed the pilot.”

The knockout

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Victor Ortiz

I´m still thinking about what on earth happened this Saturday?

Ortiz seemed to be going hard on Mayweather and suddenly, when it seems like their on a break, Ortiz is not even looking at Mayweather, and Mayweather hit back so hard that he knocked him out. It was only the 4th round. The fight had just started and it ended. It was great and frustrating at the same time. You don´t see fights like that very often but at teh same time, we didný have time to enjoy it. One thing´s for sure, it was too fast.

Take a look at how it happened

Here are some of Ortiz´s best hits from his career

Is Reality getting too real?

Bad news hit Bravo Tv (one of the biggest reality show tv channels in the US) a couple of weeks ago  when after the preasure of his new life, Russell Armstrong (husband of Taylor Armostrong, one of the cast members from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and a cast memeber himself) comited suicide.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Premiere
The show (probably the most successful of the Real Housewives saga) has already aired the first two episodes of season 2 and had to make space on the first one for an extra reunion of the girls talking about what had happened. The reunion in the first episode took place without Taylor who has been going through a lot of harrassing from the press. Bravo could’ve cancelled but, although they’re treating the issue with a lot of touch, it’s sad to say that the truth is that the suicide has been great publicity for the show. The public is now dying to see hints of what could’ve been what triggered this horrible end for Taylor’s husband. In fact, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which´s first season seemed to be one of the most watched shows of Bravo TV) had 42% more viewers on this season´s premier than the first one. Be sure that Bravo is already making changes on the editing. It´s yet to see if they finally air the images of the couple´s counseling sesions.


Last season, the show had shown the couple the reality of how bad their relationship was, making it even harder by knowing that the world had realized what was going on too. The preasure of reality seemed to be too hard for them and broke the relationship after the second (now airing) season, right before the sad incident. At the end of the first season it seemed like Taylor and Russell were trying but the second season started with a broken and even skinnier than ever Taylor. In July, at the end of recording the second season, Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce. She acused her husband of domestic violence. Some say the reason for Russell hanging himself was the separation, others say it was because of the more than a 1 million dollar debt. Viewers are trying to make a guess out of what they see on this season, that´s for sure.


Can Reality shows become too real also for those who live it?
What´s sure is that his family thinks so and is thinking of proceeding against the TV channel.

PS: Added on September 14th, seems like Taylor Armstrong might be making a deal to talk about Russell´s death. Just saw it on E! News.

PPS: September 15th update. You can check out the reaction of the Real Housewives to the shocking pictures of Taylor after suffering domestic violence in hands of Russell Armstrong. They claim to be upset and devastated for her and say they understand she sold the pictures to sustain her daughter.

A Royal Wedding

As everyone knows, the US doesn’t have a blue blood monarchy. To substitute that americans fill their gossip life with a royalty “made a la americana”.

Khloe Kardashian's Message For SIster Kim On Her Wedding Day

A set of “princes and princesses” born from reality shows, old forgotten stars and Hollywood makeovers.

Less than 2 weeks ago, Kim Kardashian got married and crowned herself going from US princess to queen. The reality show star’s wedding should be history by now if we follow US terms but the 20 million dollar valued wedding is still in

everyone’s mouth, and channel E! (home to all the Kardashian shows that contributed to making the family earning over 65 million dollars last year) is making sure it’ll be for quite some time by airing the wedding video in about a month when people start to forget it. In fact Kim Kardashian´s Fairytale Wedding airs on October 9th at 8/7c and October 10th at 9/8c.

Here go some details from the wedding:

    • 20 million dollars is what the wedding was worth, 6 million what she suposely really spent.
    • 450 guests
    • Montecito, California, that´s were it happened.
    • Aside from the Kardashian clan (Khloe, Lamar Odom, Kris, Kourtney, Bruce Jenner, Kendall, Kylie, Robert, Scott Disick…) other celebrities like Lindsey Lohan, April Lavigne and Eva Longoria attended.
    • The wedding registry included things like: a $1,250 silver serving spoon, a $375 Baccarat candy jar, a $1,600 Scandinavian-designed teapot and an antique ebony oval breakfast tray worth $1,590.
    • The ring that Kris Humphreys gave in the proposal is worth 2 million dollars.
    • The wedding cost 20 million dollars (the royal brittish wedding only cost 5 million dollars).
  • 2.5 million dollars is what the Lorraine Schwartz headpiece she wore to walk down the aisle cost (65 carat diamonds).
  • The  Schwartz jewelry she wore on her wedding day cost 10 million dollars but was borrowed.
  • 200,000 is what the Kardashian’s wedding band cost, just a little bit over the 150,000 dollars that makeup, hair and groomin cost.
  • 10,000 dollars in black and white invitations for the more than 400 invites.
  • Most of the things where given free or at a low price for the wedding and all the exclusives and tv deals are surley to report money for the famous Kardashian. People Magazine payed 1.5 million dollars for the exclusive first pictures of the wedding which took 11 pages.
  • Kim wore 3 Vera Wang dresses which you can see in the pictures I attached.
  • 5 million were estimated to watch the wedding on tv next October, they think it would´ve been 8 million if it had been aired live. Her sister´s wedding Khloe and Lamar Odom was one of the most watched shows ever on E! with 3.2 million viewers.
  • Sharon Sacks, her wedding planner.


Love it or hate it, reality shows are bigger than ever and are starting to rule America.

The pre-wedding was interesting too. You can see the pictures of the Kim Kardashian´s Bridal Shower, Kim Kardashian´s Engagement Party,  Kim Kardashian´s Bachelorette Party, and her last goodbye´s before marrying.

Gossip Girl o la Reina Cotilla

 

gossip girl new york times

gossip girl new york times

SPANISH:

7:30  de la tarde, J. No ha sido vista enganchada al ordenador, no es capaz de separarse de la pantallas, las reinas de la sociedad juvenil neoyorquina la tienen intrigada. Parece que S. y B. tienen otra de sus peleas y que la pequeña J. le ha dado en las narices a B. que a su vez tiene que cada vez más química con nuestro conspirador favorito que últimamente no sale de su castillo en el centro de Manhattan….La vida del Upper East Side puede hacerte adicto. Cuidado amigos…

 La serie americana del momento me tiene totalmente pillada, no soy capaz de despegarme del ordenador. No es sólo por unos chicos guapos y que la acción transcurra en mi querido Nueva York, es que, es de esas series que a pesar de parecer una tontería tienen la magia suficiente para enganchar, tiene…no sé el qué pero funciona. Un montón de Paris Hiltons y niñatos ricos muestran lo “difícil” que es ser un malcriado y lo trepa que es la gente en su mundillo. Vamos, el tipo de serie que no me interesaría normalmente. Pequeños monstruos más adultos de lo que deberían para su edad con todos los excesos a su alcance. Y todo narrado por una Reina Cotilla que refleja la vida de estos seres privilegiados en su web para aquellos que aspiran a pertenecer a su mundo.

Puede que parte del éxito se deba al casting, los actores están elegidos a la perfección y cada uno tiene su carisma. El guión se resuelve de manera rápida sin dar tiempo a que te aburras. Nueva York se pone a tus pies dándote acceso a todo aquello a lo que no podrías acceder sin ser parte de la jet set neoyorquina. Y… la nota marketiniana: a las mujeres les encanta ver ropa y modelitos, peinados y maquillaje en una serie y esta va camino de ser la sucesora de Sex in the City en cuanto a fashion product placement se refiere.

La recomiendo encarecidamente. En Cuatro, los jueves por la noche.

Sabéis que me queréis,

                                               XOXO,

                  Julie No

ENGLISH:  

7:30 pm, J.No has been seen looking at her computer without beeing able to leave it for a minute. New York’s hig society queens got her madly interested. Seems like S. and B. have had another fight and that little J. has shut B.’s mouth who at the same time seems to get along better and better each day with our favourite conspirator who these last days hasn’t gone aout of his castle in the center of Manhattan. The Upper East Side  life can get you addicted. Beware my friends…

America’s TV phenomenon of the moment has got me nuts, I can’t leave the computer. It’s not only because of the hot guys or because the action happens in my loved and adored New York, it’s just that it is one of these tv series looking like some dumb tv product for teens that ends up being a great surpirise and makes you addicted, it’s like magic, you simply don’t understand why but it happens. A whole bunch of Paris Hiltons and rich kids show us how “difficult” it is to be a spoiled kid with everything you can have in their devastating world full of crap. Exactly the kind of tv serie I normaly wouldn’t have liked. Little monsters acting like adults with all kind of excess at close for them to reach. And everything told by queen of gossips, the Gossip Girl who reflects this privilege kids’ lifes in the computer’s screen through her blog for anyone aspiring to belong to that world to access.

whos-who

Gossip Girl’s success might be thanks to a perfect casting with actors full of charisma. The script’s action goes fast so you don’t have time to bore waiting for anything to happen. New York is given to you in a way you would’ve never imagined giving you access to all those things you won’t get access when you’re not part of high society. And …. the marketing note: women love to see clothes, hair dressing works and make up in tv series and Gosdsip Girl seems to be Sex in the City’s sucesor in fashion product placement.

I really recommend this serie. WAtch in Spain in Channel 4, thrusday nights.

You know you love me,

                                                       XOXO,
