Melissa McCarthy

THE MOST ANNOYING AD ON TV

HGTV’s popular twins Jonathan and Drew Scott, along with Melissa McCarthy, are currently appearing in the most hated ad on TV (for Chase banks) and it seems to be running constantly. In the commercial, Melissa is seen walking around a house, loudly smashing decorative objects on the floor while the twins watch. Viewers (including me) find the ad noisy and stupid and HATE seeing perfectly good things broken for no reason. It’s NOT funny and irritated viewers are griping all over the internet: “I like the people in the ad LESS each time I see it!” ”Is this supposed to be FUNNY?” One viewer said “Chase should FIRE their ad agency” and another responded “No – blame the stupid Chase execs who OK’d it!”

Attention Drew Scott: dyed black beards are NOT attractive

MELISSA MCCARTHY: NEW YEAR’S EVE AT JOAN’S ON THIRD

Melissa McCarthy spent an early New Year’s Eve with her daughters Vivian, 12, and Georgette, 9. They dined at celebrity favorite Joan’s on Third in Studio City and picked up McConnell’s ice cream on the way home. Vivian and Georgette already appeared in The Boss in 2016 with their mom – Vivian played Melissa as a child. Melissa says both her daughters are “smarter and funnier” than she was at their age…

MELISSA MCCARTHY IS NOT ABOVE BARGAIN HUNTING

Melissa McCarthy got up early Sunday for the Long Beach flea market, and she must be a serious shopper because she brought her own cart. Not sure why, but Southern California flea markets are among the best in the world. Melissa pulled out a baseball cap and a fanny pack and browsed every booth. By the end of the day her cart was packed with vintage clothing, rugs, tchotchkes (home décor) art, and at least one pair of shoes. A good time was had by all

THE MOVIE “KITCHEN” HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FOOD

Just seeing this photo of Tiffany Haddish, Melissa McCarthy, and Elizabeth Moss in their 1970’s attire filming Kitchen in New York, got us interested in seeing the movie. It’s a comedy/drama about three Hell’s Kitchen mob wives who take over their husbands’ rackets when the mobsters are sent to prison. AND the film was written and directed by a woman – Andrea Berloff. We always have higher expectations for movies made by women – the characters seem more relatable.

MELISSA MCCARTHY AS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN HER

Melissa McCarthy is a whole new person in her upcoming movie Can You Ever Forgive Me? and it might be the best role she’s ever had. She plays a real person in this true story – a curmudgeonly failed New York writer named Lee Israel who became a literary forger out of financial necessity. (Her cat needed expensive surgery.) She’s also an alcoholic with a dour personality and no interest in fashion. But she’s clever, and starts forging amusing letters, supposedly written by Oscar Wilde, Dorothy Parker, and other notables – they sell to collectors for a high price. Her adventures and eccentric friend played by Richard E Grant make for a smart and amusing comedy/drama.

MELISSA MCCARTHY DOES FARRAH FAWCETT

If Melissa McCarthy looks serious in this photo- it’s because she’s actually filming Kitchen – described as a crime drama set in 1970’s New York. Hence the feathered Farrah hair and bell bottoms. It’s the story of gangster wives who take over their husbands’ crime business when the guys go to jail. With Tiffany Haddish co-starring – how could it NOT be funny?

MELISSA MCCARTHY DOES IT AGAIN

If this photo is any indication, Saturday Night Live is going to be a winner this week. Melissa McCarthy was seen in full Sean Spicer drag, rampaging through the streets of Manhattan on her motorized podium while SNL cameras followed her today. Looks like Spicer’s aggression toward the press is increasing. She was filming a sketch for tomorrow’s show, which she is hosting.

MELISSA MCCARTHY AND HER TWO HOT GUYS

You’ve got to give Melissa McCarthy credit- not only did she crack up costar Jude Law, but she made her OTHER costar Jason Statham laugh – and it’s hard to even make him smile. The happy threesome showed up for the London premier of “Spy” in which they all play CIA agents. Melissa looks exceptionally pretty. Spy is a comedy with good reviews – usually we find Melissa’s movies rather vulgar, but this one looks interesting.

Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone took their daughters Vivian, 7, and Georgette, 4, to a birthday party at a bowling alley on Saturday. The Mike & Molly star is still wearing black in spite of the fact the she lost around 40 pounds recently. Melissa wants to be healthy but she knows her weight is part of what makes her funny so she says her goal is not to be skinny, just comfortable. Or is that an excuse?

SUSAN SARANDON DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A GRANDMOTHER

She looks so great that you’d never guess that Susan Sarandon is about to become a grandmother, thanks to her daughter, actress Eva Amurri. Coincidentally, Susan plays Melissa McCarthy’s mischievous alcoholic grandmother in “Tammy” – due to be released July 2. The twosome take a road trip with some hilarious consequences and we can’t wait to see it.(Above Susan and her dog Penny)
