I’ve had the most frustrating night with computer problems on Monday and I spent hours trying to figure it out. We had a huge storm late in the afternoon. When I couldn’t connect to the internet I just assumed it was a problem caused by the 2” of rain we had in a little over an hour. But then I discovered that my neighbors all had internet and my laptop could connect but not my desktop. So the solution is simple, right? Just blog from my laptop, except it has a very finicky battery and will shut down at the most inopportune moment. Also it doesn't have the ability to do screencaps. So bear with me, I’m going to try to get this posted. It will be a little short on content and you'll have to wait until Sheryn posts on Tuesday afternoon for screencaps. But, oddly enough, I found a bunch of pictures of AC, stored in my laptop, with the same tie he had on Monday night. So not to confuse anyone but that's what I'll use for the purposes of getting this posted.
What I did manage to catch on Monday’s AC 360 was the naked picture of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband, Prince what’s-his-name. Ewwww. This is one time everyone should be happy I can't screencap.
Sad to see that the Goldman’s and the Brown’s have ended up on opposite sides of a courtroom. I never understood why Fred Goldman thought he was entitled to 100% of money seized from OJ, I think the Brown’s had to proceed with this lawsuit. That said, Ms. Brown didn’t let Anderson get a word in. She not only asked all the questions she answered them. I found it very annoying…but it didn’t take much to annoy me on Monday night.
It was good to see AC360 spend a few minutes covering the horrific helicopter crash that occurred in Phoenix on Friday. Tuesday is the funeral for 2 of the victims and Phoenix will come to a standstill for this service. It’s hard to explain the popularity of the local channel they worked for. They advertise themselves as Arizona’s Family and it really is true. Most of them, like Mike Watkiss, have been with the station for many, many years and are just like family to the viewers. CNN’s Kristi Paul worked at this station and was one of the first to call to offer her condolences.
That’s it for program coverage for me. I’m sure I missed much, but I’m just as sure you’ll let me know about it too!
We have another Anderupdate thanks to our wonderful ATA team. Megan found that Anderson Cooper has been named to Vanity Fair’s 2007 International Best Dressed Hall of Fame. No surprise there, right? He’s being inducted along with George Clooney in the August issue of Vanity Fair, on newsstands now.
I have a bit of Big Brother news for those of you who have been watching since the beginning. Dr. Will, winner of Season 3, and participant in Big Brother All Stars is making his debut on E!'s Dr. 90210 Monday night. If you’re not familiar with this show it is a reality show about a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. I’ve been told that Will is going to be joining the practice on a temporary basis.
