What I Learned from 10-13 Year Olds

Over the weekend while at the wedding, I was hanging out with some nephews & nieces, all of which between the ages of 10-13…and this is what I learned…

They do NOT care for the Biebs!Justin Bieber departs his hotel wearing a yellow studded baseball hat

I figured my nephew Blake would say that….but was shocked at how much Allie & Anna were just disgusted with Justin Bieber.

Of course, I immediately tried to request a Bieber song from the wedding DJ (who ironically said, “Man, I love that guy.”


I also learned from the tweens that I can still outgross them all! When you tell them that you’ll put diarrhea on their cupcake…they will laugh and say ewwwwww.

Oh, they also reminded me numerous times that I have no hair on my head. Thank you for that….enjoy your cupcake, ha ha!

Butter Abraham Lincoln

So at the Fair this year, it’s going to be a Butter Abraham Lincoln, and a Butter Lincoln Bridge. Jennifer had the best comment on the Ken & Colleen Facebook page….”Will be hunting vampires?” That’d be fantastic.

I was thinking that they’d be going with a big butter Iphone.

Matt Nathanson

Friend of Star 102.5 Matt Nathanson has a new album out today, “Last of the Great Pretenders”…go get it. We’re looking forward to him coming back to Des Moines when he opens for Train at the State Fair on 8/17!

Daytime Talk Takes Another Hit

Well, two hits.

Kris Jenner…and Jenny McCarthy? I can takes no more.

Kris Jenner’s new talk show is just going to be plain awful…and who is showing up to be in the studio audience? They should all be hit in the head with a rolled-up newspaper and scolded. No! Bad Audience!

Jenny McCarthy on The View? I just don’t understand this. What is she going to add to the panel? It’s going to be a trainwreck…but that’s probably what they want. People talk about trainwrecks…even when there’s nothing to actually talk about.

Something for the Ladies

A website came up with the Top 10 Sexiest Celebrity Silver Foxes…and here ya go!

10. Jeremy Irons24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards - Arrivals
