The mighty mighty good men of the U.K.

What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man…

Oh yes, he is!

“He’s not a fake wannabe tryin’ to be a pimp

He dresses like a dapper don, but even in jeans

He’s a God-sent original, the man of my dreams”

Boy, Salt ‘N’ Pepa and En Vogue really were onto something, weren’t they? Then again, this song was penned in the mid-’90s, which is right about the same time I was totally geeking out lusting after men of the U.K. Actors, more specifically.

And I had a major flashback this weekend – via some British/Scottish-specific beefcake viewing – that reminded me that they are, indeed, God-sent originals.

"Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds. Or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no! It is an ever fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken. Willoughby. Willoughby. Willoughby."

“True Blood”: Got Mott?

Dearest Franklin Mott,

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Well, helllooooooo there, good lookin'.../Photo credit HBO

I’ve fallen head over heels for Bon Temps’ newest bad boy, Franklin Mott. I’m dying to know more about him (when he was turned, if he’s looking for another woman to obsess over – cause I’m available, ya know), and I sure have got my fingers crossed that Tara didn’t do him any more harm than dent his head in a little.

Side note #1: I’m finding myself writing this post in an adopted Sookie Stackhouse-like Southern accent. Kinda weird.

At any rate, while I whittle away the hours until my dear Franklin’s return to “True Blood” (and of his return I’m absolutely certain), I thought I’d pontificate on about the *history* I share with the fantabulous actor who plays him, James Frain.

Jesse James: Oh no he didn’t!

I am totally bummed.

Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, rumors are flying that Jesse James cheated on his Oscar winner wife Sandra Bullock.

According to In Touch Weekly, the affair went on for nearly a year, and the woman Jesse allegedly cheated with is a tattoo model.

Michelle “Bombshell” McGee tells In Touch Weekly she and Jesse had sex numerous times while Sandra was in Georgia filming “The Blind Side.”  Worse yet, she claims he didn’t use protection.

This all seems so… sordid. And, despite Jesse’s past (which includes two ex-wives, one of whom is Janine Lindemulder, a porn star who served time in prison for tax evasion), he’s always seemed so devoted, loving, honorable and crazy about Sandra.

I’ve written about their apparent passion for one another numerous times – here, here and here – so this latest bit of disturbing news is especially upsetting.  And let’s not forget that Sandra has been instrumental in helping Jesse maintain custody of the daughter he shares with Janine.

Is there a chance that the tabloids have gotten it all wrong? Sure. But when Sandra goes and cancels her appearance at the London premiere of “The Blind Side” (for which she just won an Oscar), and Jesse abruptly deletes his Twitter account without a word, you’ve got to wonder.

“Daisy of Love”: London Calling

I told you Daisy De La Hoya was going to pick London.

Of course, you probably already figured that out, too. It was obvious she was drawn to him and never recovered after he departed the show. I read somewhere that it really was only a week between when he left and when he came back, so that makes her pining for him a lot more understandable.

Plus, of course, Daisy’s psychic told her London (aka Joshua Lee) was the  best choice of the remaining four guys (which also included Sinister, Flex and 12 Pack).

“London is a homeless sex addict who my psychic thinks is perfect for me,” Daisy declared. “Go figure.”

Who doesn’t listen to their psychic?

I felt really bad for 12 Pack/Dave (who I just learned is a Jersey boy – go Dave!) when he was the first of the final three to be eliminated. But it wasn’t really a surprise, though. Sure, 12 Pack had his jerky moments just like the rest of the guys, but on the whole he seemed a lot more put together and pretty much out of Daisy’s emotional/mental league. He was also by far the funniest of the bunch, as evidenced by the all too hysterical skunk incident.

Don’t cry for 12 Pack. He’ll be getting his own show faster than you can say “banana hammock.” Mark my words.

Fox is out like sauerkraut.

And for the rest of my life,  if I ever see another photo of Fox that hilarious “Fox…oooooh yeah” music is going to automatically pop into my head. Thanks, VH1.

“Daisy of Love”: It’s been a wild ride

“Daisy of Love” has been a completely wonderful surprise for me. It’s entertaining and hilarious, and I’m honestly going to miss it after the finale airs this Sunday, July 26 (my birthday!!).

Vodpod videos no longer available.

One of my favorite Daisy De La Hoya quotes:

“London is a homeless sex addict who my psychic thinks is perfect for me. Go figure.”

I frankly found Daisy annoying when she was trying to woo Bret Michaels in “Rock of Love.” So I really didn’t even plan on watching “Daisy of Love,” because I figured she would be even more annoying. But the reality is that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, she’s young and acts dopey, but she’s clearly not a bad person (and I think the dopiness is for the most part an act).

But the real break-out stars here are the men. I totally believe the “Daisy of Love” casting director deserves an Emmy for finding these guys. I can’t imagine they will ever be able to top this season (should Daisy decide – like her mentor, Bret – to do multiple seasons).

Seriously, what other show can you hear the words “banana hammock” uttered repeatedly?

As for who Daisy should pick, I go with London. Not because he’s the most deserving of the bunch (he’s definitely not), but because he’s exactly what she’s attracted to: young, foolish, immature and a bad boy. 12 Pack/Dave is the nicest and most mature of the bunch (and that’s really saying something), but I think he’s too mature and nice for Daisy. I don’t think she would fully appreciate him at this point in her life. Flex is a hot hothead, but I don’t think he’s right for her, either.

Actually, I don’t see her going far with any of them. Paging season 2!

In the meantime, I hope VH1 is planning a “Daisy of Love” marathon leading up to the finale.
