Sunday Supplement Sellebrity for 5/10/09

May 17th, 2009 No comments

All three of the Sunday newspaper supplement magazines I receive–American Profile, USA Weekend, and Parade–feature a celebrity gossip column on their first page. These columns are structured as answers to questions that have been sent in by readers.

I have my doubts.

Here are the questions that “readers” sent in for 5/10/09:

What can you tell me about the 1970s singer Lobo? Was he as unlucky in love as many of his songs seem to portray?
–Bruce Aman, Menominee, Mich.

I think that the actress who plays cashier Flo on the Progressive Auto Insurance commercials is dynamite. Will we see more of her in the future?
–Maureen Gallaher, Oneonta, N.Y.

What can you tell us about Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, the handsome leading men on the CW’s Supernatural?
–L.K. Richards, Seattle, Wash.

I got hooked on Lost when I bought the first season on DVD. The only thing I don’t like about the show is how many great characters–and actors–have disappeared. 
–Esther Myers, Embarrass, Minn.

 Will actors Sam Elliot, Tom Selleck or Bruce Boxleitner, who have played memorable cowboys, star in a new TV western? No one makes them anymore.
–Roy McCallen, Aurora, Colo.

Is the actress who plays Lt. Maria LaGuerta on Showtime’s Dexter the same one who was Tootie in The Facts of Life?
–Nancy Nutile, Perkinsville, Vt.

When House, the character, plays the piano on the Fox medical drama of the same name, it looks as if actor Hugh Laurie is actually playing. Is he a real pianist?
–Dolores Ruhlin, Flagler Beach, Fla.

 I miss the Lindsay Lohan of Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. How can she regain Hollywood’s trust?
–S. Park, Los Angeles, Calif.

What is the tattoo that Bachelor reject turned Dancing With the Stars darling Melissa Rycroft has on her lower back?
–T. Diaz, Miami, Fla.

I read that Jeff Bridges will play the guitar in his new film, Crazy Heart. Can he really play?
–Bill Jackson, Fort Worth, Tex.

Does Adam Richman, who gorges himself as host of the Travel Channel’s  Man v. Food, ever check his cholesterol?
–S. Paul, Hoffman Estates, Ill. 

I heard Mel Gibson was going to star as an ATF agent in Under and Alone. What’s the movie’s status?
–Merwin Sands, Waldorf, Md.

How is Robin Williams recovering from his recent open-heart surgery?
–Dwayne Wilder, Denison, Tex.

I haven’t heard about Debbie Reynolds recently. Has she finally gone into retirement?
–Gail Lebowitz, Atlanta, Ga.

I hear there’s a new Mike Tyson documentary. Why should we care about a prizefighter who threw it all away? 
–Joe Smith, Queens, N.Y.
