LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
“Glee” Roars Back With A Beiste – “Pronounced Like Beast!”: After “Glee’s” great Season 2 premiere last night, we’re obsessed with the show’s new breakout character, Coach Shannon Beiste, played by the stellar Dot Jones! E! Online’s Marc Malkin has awesome scoop on some great tidbits about the actress that we’re guessing most of America only just met last night. According to E!, Dot previously won 15 world arm wrestling championships, is an impressive 6’4” and used to star on the medieval-themed fighting competition show, “Knights and Warriors,” as Lady Battleaxe. The actress, who has also appeared on a slew of shows including “Cougar Town,” “HawthoRNe” and “Desperate Housewives,” convinced “Glee” co-executive producer Brad Falchuk to put her on the show following a chance meeting at an LA area Whole Foods. “I said to him, ‘I want to be on ‘Glee.’ I love it,’” Dot recalled. “Brad goes, ‘Can you sing?’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m not Mariah Carey, but I can carry a tune.’ And I’ll be damned if they didn’t call my agent and asked my availability starting the middle of July because they were creating a character for me.” Long live Dot and Coach Beiste!
Snooki Prowling For A Bull Or A Bear!: “Jersey Shore’s” perpetually unlucky-at-love-girl, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, has already tried her luck with gorillas and now she’s moving on to a different section of the man zoo! “I cannot find that perfect guerilla juice head!” Snooki said during an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Tuesday. “So, now I’m thinking more of going to, like, a business guy at like Wall St. or something. Change it up a little bit! Try it out!” We’d like to formally issue a warning to all stockbrokers in the lower Manhattan area.
New “Twilight” Couple?: We’re tired of trying to guess whether or not Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are actually dating, so now we’re focusing our attention on Ashley Greene and Xavier Samuel. According to People, the co-stars were spotted dancing together at the grand opening in New York’s Lavo this week – reportedly “by each other’s sides all night.” We’re down for this cute pairing – what do you think? Sound off below!
Kim’s Mother Of A Problem!: How old do you have to get for your mother to stop embarrassing you? For almost 30-year-old Kim Kardashian, the answer is… never! On Wednesday, the reality star Tweeted during her trip in Germany, “My mom will not take off her drindle she is even doing interviews in it! Embarrasing!” In case you – like Roll Call – is not familiar with German garb, here’s Kim wearing her own drindle. So many drindles, so little time! Kim, Roll Call has a little travel safety advice for you while in the Motherland. Beware of angry Germans who might seek revenge on Americans for voting The Hoff out of “Dancing” last night!
