Imogen Thomas, Get Over Yourself Already


For someone who bitches and complains a lot about just about anything and everything you’d think Imogen Thomas was famous for something more than sleeping with a footballer or getting her boobs out for a lads mag. Imogen Thomas, the welsh glamour model, apparent ‘beauty queen’ and no-talent TV personality ‘star’ lasted three months in the seventh series of reality TV series Big Brother. Best known for her cover-girl shoots with Zoo and Maxim magazines and working with the Daily Star newspaper, Thomas has also appeared in other lads mags such as FHM  where she came in at number 58 on their Sexiest Woman in the World list and in 2008 and was included in the list of Playboy Bunnies onPlayboy‘s website.

She’s incredibly annoying. I struggle to find the words that make her a ‘celebrity’ personality. There is no real talent. Just someone who slept with HE WHO CAN NOT BE NAMED and is using this and her boobs to mastermind her own popularity. Most recently the bimbo model posted a picture of herself on Twitter saying how much weight she has put on over the Christmas period. Are we blind and stupid? She must be the skinniest fat girl I’ve ever seen. Again another attention-seeking way of getting her so called fans the attention she needs. Does she look fat? No. Between you and me, although I’ve lost weight I’m still bigger than her. Thomas posted pics of herself, stripped down to her underwear, moaning about her ‘increased’ waistline. The  model proclaimed: “Im gonna workout and do bikram so much. I cant wait to feel good again,” before adding, for those left confused by her vague mutterings, “On the atkins diet as of today.”

 But as much as she wanted the ‘poor Imogen’ tweets to flood back it wasn’t long before the backlash began; “Oh I’m so fat boohoo. Attention seeker,” nicy0007 Tweeted, and her opinion was shared by others prompting Thomas to respond “I’m sorry if my ‘weight photo’ made ppl angry. I didn’t mean to – I have some body issues.”
 Oh F*ck off.

She’s always in the papers. If not for doing a Jordan like pose on the beach in a skimpy bikini, she’s wearing t-shirts that would gain a slap from most people. To continue her flight of super-celebrity awesomness, Thomas is most of the time seen hanging off another footie stars arm, falling out of nightclubs, wearing revealing dresses or bitching about other people of social networking site Twitter. She has no talent. She is just an attention seeking nobody that has to use her body (coz she’s definitely not using her mind) to get herself noticed.

She’s most famously known for having sex with HE WHO CAN NOT BE NAMED Manchester United footballer which I guess in her eyes would’ve meant she would be seen as ‘poor little naive Imogen darling’ instead it didn’t exactly go in the reality TV star’s favour. The alleged footballer is hiding behind a super-injunction to protect his name. Her previous conquests include Jermaine Defoe and Russell Brand and she’s currently being represented by Max Clifford. She was instead seen and described as a home-wrecker. It’s irritating to imagine she thought she’d gain huge amounts of sympathy from this. He is married. Although what he did can’t be excused you can’t use and abuse this to gain anything. Especially when going on TV, talking to every show out there and releasing your exclusive story to the press is going to gain you any sort of credibility neither. Crying your eyes out about how awful your life now is, and how you are suicidal due to all the media attention is ridiculous. STOP IT. She’s also managed to make a huge amount of money from it, something we’d all apparently do ourselves, because money is the key to everything. In an episode of Celebrity Come Dine With Me, dimwit Imogen says “If you were in my position and you’d been through the same thing and then you get offered a 100 opportunities there on a plate, what would you say?”

“Would you say, ‘Forget them I’m just going to carry on’ or would you think, ‘I’ve got bills to pay and I have to make the most of what’s happening now. I’ve got mortgages, I have to keep working. You can’t say that [it is immoral] until you’ve been put in a situation like that. Of course you would try to stop it but it gets out of control. I am just a normal girl next door and I’ve been put in a situation like that where I am getting death threats and people are camping outside my house every single day for the past six months. It’s hard-going. For me it’s like I made a mistake. I made my bed, I lay in it and for me I just want to get on with my life.” It wasn’t your bed to make, you daft cow. It is beyond obvious that she is in it for the fame and acclaim but he knows full well, as the rest of us do, that any publicity is good publicity. She’s got Max Clifford and he knows best when it comes to this sort of thing and is making sure her bank balance is fully accounted for.

Since Imogen’s affair came to light, Natasha Giggs and her have been having their very own slagging off match. Natasha Giggs the latest twit to fall for this footballers charms in a whopper of an 8 year affair was in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother (why, God knows) but she also has been doing her best to publicize her own views on Twitter. With a very short stint within the house, being voted out the other week. The first person to have a Twitter row with Natasha is none other than Imogen Thomas. It all started off with Imogen tweeting ‘Just watching cbb catch up. I love Natalie Cassidy and her task,’  she said. So far, so nice. But then she carried on… ”Wag’ Nicola McLean is a fake. And as for the other one…….’ she said. As for the other one what?’, which was almost definitely going to start some sort of a scrap so seems a bad idea, but hey, this pair seem to thrive on that stuff. Rather than reply to Natasha, who was voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house ahead of Nicola McLean this week, Imogen then tweeted a list of hashtags that we don’t quite see catching on, but we suspect weren’t really meant for that purpose. It all is childish. A bore to watch and read and makes me wonder how they get the time of the day people give them. They both did something wrong and there’s no need to publicize it through their pathetic Twitter accounts. You both shouldn’t be famous for sleeping with famous people. Nor for anything else that involves stripping off or falling out of clubs. There is no need. It also gets rather tiring reading the endless crap that your pathetic lives fill in the press. I for one don’t want to read about it anymore and know others would agree. So why not use your degree to something more useful like actually getting a real job like the rest of us.

The Kardashian’s. What are they actually famous for?


Apart from Robert Kardashian being OJ Simpson’s attorney, the rest of The Kardashian clan aren’t actually famous for anything except for being known as socialite royalty. Basically the same reason Paris Hilton is famous; for falling out of nightclubs drunk, shopping too much with their trust fund or having a sex tape leaked onto the internet (Kim’s fault). They some how have got a reality show from Kim’s sex tape and are somewhat famous just for that fact. The Kardashian family was very close to O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson. The Simpson trial caused conflict between Kris and Robert. Kardashian was on O.J.’s defense team, while Nicole had been Jenner’s best friend.

Who are they?

Kris Jenner 

Kris, the matriarch, was married to the late Robert Kardashian, best known for being a defense lawyer during the O.J. Simpson murder trial, and had three daughters and one son with him before they divorced in 1990. She later married athlete Bruce Jenner, and together they have two daughters. She is also known for being a  socialiteand businesswoman as she manages all of her family members. She and Bruce Jenner married on April 21, 1991. Bruce Jenner had four children from two previous marriages: Burt, Casey, Brody, and Brandon. Kris and Bruce have two daughters, Kendall Nicole (b. November 3, 1995) and Kylie Kristen (b. August 10, 1997). On December 14, 2009, Jenner became a grandmother when Kourtney and Scott Disick had a child, Mason Dash Disick.

Bruce Jenner

Bruce was a decathlon champion in the 1976 Summer Olympics. He married Kris in 1991 and has four other children from two previous marriages: Burt Jenner, Casey Jenner, Brandon Jenner, and The Hills cast member Brody Jenner.

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney is an American businesswoman, socialite, model, actress and reality television personality. She is the oldest of Jenner’s children. Kourtney first became known to reality television audiences on the 2005 series, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, on which she earned money for charity. She then became a cast member on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which depicts the lives of her extended family. She and her sister Khloé starred in their own spinoff reality show, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, the first season of which documented their opening of the Miami D-A-S-H location in 2009. In January 2011, Kourtney and Kim Take New York premiered, which documents her and sister Kim opening their third D-A-S-H store in New York.

Kardashian and her boyfriend Scott Disick have a son, Mason Dash Disick, born December 14, 2009. On November 30, 2011, Kardashian announced she and Disick were expecting their second child.

Kim Kardashian

Kim is an American socialite, television personality, model, actress and businesswoman or best known for their leaked sex tape in February 2007 that she made with singer Ray J in 2003 which subsequently resulted in a court awarding her $5 million. Kardashian has been involved in the production of several lines of clothing and fragrances. In 2010, she was the highest earning reality star, with estimated earnings of $6 million.In August 2011, Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries in a widely publicized ceremony. She filed for divorce 72 days later which has gained her some not so great publicity from around the world. Several news outlets have surmised that Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries was merely a publicity stunt to promote the Kardashian family’s brand and their subsequent television ventures. Her former publicist has also claimed that her short-lived wedding was indeed staged and a ploy to generate money. Kardashian has since filed suit against him, saying his claims were untrue.  A widely circulated petition asking to remove all Kardashian related programing off the air has been followed since their split. This wasn’t her first marriage. Kim was in fact married before. Kim married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and divorced in 2004.

In December 2007, Kardashian posed nude for Playboy. Kim is mostly known for her regular appearances in gossip magazines showing off those amazing curves and also for her love of fur coats. In 2010 animal rights organization PETA criticized Kardashian for repeatedly wearing fur coats, and named her as one of the five worst people or organizations of 2010 when it came to animal welfare.

Khloe Kardashian

She is an American businesswoman, television personality, radio host, socialite, and model. On September 27, 2009, Kardashian married Dallas Mavericks, then Los Angeles Lakers, forward Lamar Odom. Last week RadarOnline reported that Robert Kardashian‘s ex-wives Jan Ashley and Ellen Pierson had come forward in an exclusive interview stating that he had revealed to each of them that he was not Khloe’s biological father. Khloe’s mother, Kris Jenner admitted in her new book Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian that she had an affair during her marriage to Robert Kardashian.

Khloe Kardashian has called the claims “disgusting”. She wrote: “The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this! Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low. YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are).”

Rob Kardashian

is an American television personality. He is best known for appearing on his family’s reality television shows, such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Khloé & Lamar. Kardashian competed and placed second on the thirteenth season of Dancing with the Stars. His professional partner was Cheryl Burke.

Kylie Jenner

Kendall Jenner

She is an American model and television personality, who is featured on the E! reality TV showKeeping Up with the Kardashians along with the rest of her family.  Kendall has modeled for the Sherri Hill dress line and is often seen in People’s magazine with her sister Kylie in the ‘Beautiful People’ article series. She is mostly known for her modelling, most recently venturing into the world of runway modelling where she modeled during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for the 2012 Spring/Summer collection of Sherri Hill.

It seems the family’s popularity has brought mixed opinions from people all of the world. As much as I think they’re beautiful, none of them actually have any real talent. Releasing sex tapes and stripping for Playboy isn’t a talent to be proud of. Nothing to wave your arms in the air for or do an Irish jig over. According to a report released by the New York Post yesterday claims the ‘stars’ are ‘no longer sought-after celebrities.’ Apparently failed ratings, lost contracts and a decline in magazines wanting to publicize their every move is hitting their pockets pretty darn hard. It all seems to follow the swift demise of Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries last year. The family already rake in $65million per year from various merchandise, clothes, modelling and their reality deals too. This probably won’t be the biggest cut back to their pockets but no doubt mamma Kris will think of something else to flaunt to make more money for the attention-seeking family.

What Would You Do To Make Quick Cash?


Everyone loves money. You need money to survive. To pay rent, the bills, travel, clothes, food, socializing. The list is endless. Money is a peculiar thing that life seems to be centred around. You need money to buy things, both necessities and desirables. It is the drive for money and lust for material goods that has left the population without money, the banks facing serious questions and politicians revising budgets. With many jobs unavailable, people who are capable of working find it hard finding a job because a lot of employers (many I’ve come across as well) are bloody fussy when it comes to taking people on board. With more and more people getting into debt and a closed job market it seems that the economic factors affecting people in the UK are drawing them into a black hole. As many say, money makes the world go round. But to what extreme would you go to to get or make money? Some people do the most craziest things.We’ve all looked into quick and easy ways to earn money, but most of us use our common sense and morals in deciding what is an acceptable risk.  Most common ways of making money can be from Pyramid schemesgambling, selling your unwanted stuff or get a payday loan-which most of the time can end in debt.

You’ve probably seen in the paper in the last few days about a woman from New Zealandwho is strapped for cash has taken the drastic action of auctioning off her bottom. Tina Beznec posted an advert titled ‘YOUR Tattoo on my Bum!!’ on New Zealand auction site Trademe.com. Amazingly 111,396 views by bidders offering up to $11,000 New Zealand Dollars to help her reach her goal. Thanks to being made redundant twice in the past year Beznec has decided upon quick money making schemes to pay off her debts, rent and other necessities to the highest bidder.

“To be quite honest I am so happy with it as it is right now,” Ms Beznec said.

“The bidders at the moment all appear to be businesses or advertising agencies and I feel very confident that they aren’t going to do anything racist, I don’t care if it’s a swear word or something like that.”

However, if it is a bit distasteful she will go ahead with the tattoo.

“It has crossed my mind a bit and I guess if it does come down to it I will do it, I’m not going to pull out.”

People were quick to criticise the 23-year-old for her unusual auction, which went live on Wednesday.

“Class. Some people just don’t have it,” one dompost.co.nz reader commented.

Others were supportive of her cause: “Good on you ! Far better than moaning about your situation, getting on with it to find a solution. Don’t listen to the negative feedback, they’re probably just old and wrinkly with nothing better to do.” 20% of the highest bid will in fact go to charity of the winner’s choice. Iget her need to want to make money quick but tattooing her backside for cash seems like an oddball decision. It’s permanent and just so random. What would you do to raise cash, that’s totally out of this world? Can you beat this and go one step further?

 

Things Go Bump in the Night


Anyone else share the feeling that horror movies or actually any form of scary movies scare you senseless? Just me. ok. I feel like a dork admitting it, but whatever. I don’t understand why someone would deliberately choose to put themselves through mind torture watching seriously fucked up terror for a minimum of an hour and a half. The type of horror where seriously fucked up things happen to each other thanks to someones seriously twisted mind. I don’t get. Where is the fun in that?

Nearly all my friends can watch slasher terror movies. The ones where some dude is running round being psycho murderer. It’s just plain weird. Fucked up type of weird. I’m very happy being the proud owner and constant watcher of Despicable Me, Monsters Inc and Ice Age. Forgive me but I’m cool, you suck.

“I recognize terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorize the reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I’ll go for the gross-out. I’m not proud.”
–Stephen King

Do people actually like being scared? Asking a few friends and they all said the same thing. ‘People will always want to be scared, because by being scared, we find out more about ourselves than would be possible otherwise.’ Really? Is that the real reason.Not only are horror movies still being made, they are still doing astounding amounts of business at the box office. Is it because of fear that I hate to watch these types of movies? Maybe, but I’d rather not face or conquer my fears by watching horror movies. I’d rather do that myself without Pin Head being in the picture.I also don’t see the thrill of getting over a fear by watching two men who are chained in a dilapidated subterranean bathroom and are each given instructions via a microcassette recorder on how to escape. One is told he must escape the bathroom, while the other is told to kill him before a certain time, or the 2nd’s guys family will die. Meanwhile, police detectives investigate and attempt to apprehend the mastermind behind the “game”. Erm no thanks.Those who recognize this plot should recognize    it from the Saw franchise which not surprisingly received mixed reviews. According to Wikipedia, ‘Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 48% of 162 critics have given the film a positive review, with a rating average of 5.4 out of 10. Dennis Harvey of Variety gave the film a negative review after its Sundance premiere. He called it a “crude concoction sewn together from the severed parts of prior horror/serial killer pics”. Carina Chocano of the Los Angeles Timesalso gave the film a mixed review saying, “Saw is so full of twists it ends up getting snarled. For all of his flashy engineering and inventive torture scenarios, the Jigsaw Killer comes across as an amateur. Hannibal Lecter would have him for lunch”. She said the film “carelessly underscores its own shaky narrative at every turn with its mid-budget hokiness”. She also noted that Elwes and Whannell had trouble keeping an American accent.’

What is the attraction to fear? Why do people enjoy being scared?

If horror movies use the collected fears of our society, then what exactly do those horror films say about the society as a whole, and how does the changing subject matter of what is considered a horror film reflect the changing fears and worries of a society entering a new millennium? There are many different explanations. The first is that the person is not actually afraid, but excited by the movie. The second explanation is that they are willing to endure the terror in order to enjoy a euphoric sense of relief at the end. Different people like to be scared by different things. Be that scary movies, thrill rides or being involved in extreme physical sports.

The hormonal reaction we get from responding to a threat or crisis is what motivates us to “like to be scared”. This is the same “fight or flight” syndrome which guaranteed our survival in more primitive times. At the moment we are threatened, we have increased strength, power, heightened senses and intuition. This increase in mental and physical capacity is commonly referred as an “adrenaline rush.” It is named after the primary hormone involved.

Basically, you can get this feeling defending yourself against a lion in the jungle or sitting in a theater showing a horror flick. We, as humans, appear to be “hard-wired” to be drawn to this feeling. It is older than we are as a species, and is tied to our survival; without it, we would have perished and died out long ago.With something so compelling, is it any wonder that many people like to get this sensation within the comfort, security and complete resolution a ninety minute scary movie or a two-minute thrill ride provide? It maybe tied to our survival but it’s not something that I’d go out of my way for. Being scared by movies isn’t something I’d go out of my way for. I also wouldn’t go Shark cage diving or jump out of a plane. The fear in that case is definitely not needed.

I can’t judge as I haven’t seen any of the following but I’ve been told via my friends that the following movies are indeed the ‘scariest of all time.’ Correct me if I’m wrong on the following movies if you disagree or agree (whichever), I’d be intrigued to know (just please leave the gory details out please) thanks. The following are all said to be of the traditional horror fare, be simply twisted or literally separate the men from the boys. The pictures themselves scare me enough and I’ve not even watched the movies yet.

The Exorcist

The film most of my friends and honestly my own Mum has banned me from watching. I’ve seen some of the pictures from Google Images and NO I’m NOT gonna watch this. Gross.

The Exorcist is a 1973 American horror film directed by William Friedkin, adapted from the 1971 novel of the same name by William Peter Blatty and based on the exorcism case of Robbie Mannheim,[3][4] dealing with the demonic possession of a young girl and her mother’s desperate attempts to win back her daughter through an exorcism conducted by two priests. The film features Ellen BurstynMax von SydowJason Miller and Linda Blair. The film is one of a cycle of ‘demonic child’ movies produced in the late 1960s and early 1970s, including Rosemary’s Baby and The Omen.

Rosemary’s Baby

Directed by Roman Polanski, a young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.
The Omen (original) & The Omen (remake)

The Omen is a 1976 American suspense horror film where the newborn son of Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) and his wife, Katherine (Lee Remick), dies shortly after birth in Rome. Robert is coerced by Father Spiletto (Martin Benson) into substituting for the dead child an orphan whose mother died at the same moment, without telling Katherine. Out of concern for his wife’s mental well-being, Robert agrees. They name the child Damien. Clearly not the name to call your child as this is also the name commonly used for the Devil.

All the Halloween movies

Halloween is an American horror franchise that consists of ten slasher filmsnovels, and comic books. The franchise focuses on the fictional character of Michael Myers who was committed to a sanitarium as a child for the murder of his older sister, Judith Myers. Fifteen years later, he escapes to stalk and kill the people of Haddonfield, Illinois while being chased by his former psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. Michael’s killings occur on the holiday of Halloween, on which all of the films primarily take place. The films collectively grossed over $366 million at the box-office worldwide.

Blair Witch Project 1 &2

The 1999 American psychological horror film pieced together from amateur footage and relates the story of three student filmmakers (Heather DonahueJoshua Leonard, and Michael C. Williams) who disappeared while hiking in the Black Hills nearBurkittsville, Maryland in 1994 to film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch. The viewers are told that the three were never seen or heard from again, although their video and sound equipment (along with most of the footage they shot) was discovered a year later. This “recovered footage” is presented as the film the viewer is watching.
Nightmare On Elm Street 

It’s got ‘Nightmare’ written in the title. Obvs it’s gonna be.

The Ring 1&2 (original and remake)

The Ring is a 2002 American psychological horror film directed by Gore Verbinski, and starring Naomi Watts and Martin Henderson. It is a remake of the 1998 Japanese horror film Ring.

Both films are based on Koji Suzuki‘s novel Ring and focus on a mysterious cursed videotape that contains a seemingly random series of disturbing images. After watching the tape, the viewer receives a phone call in which a girl’s voice announces that the viewer will die in seven days.

I watched most of this under a duvet with two giggly people. My sister and her best mate who thought my scaredy cat ways where ridiculous for someone at my age.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 

A 1974 American independent horror film, the film follows a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals while on their way to visit an old homestead. Although it was marketed as a true story to attract a wider audience and as a subtle commentary on the era’s political climate, its plot is entirely fictional; however the character of Leatherface and minor plot details were inspired by the crimes of real-life murderer Ed Gein.

CandyMan

I stupidly watched this with friends when I was 13 at Halloween and it scared the bejeezus out of me. To this day, mirrors and darkness doesn’t bode well for me. Even if people are in the house I’m even more scared that before.

The Shining

A a 1980 psychological horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, co-written with novelist Diane Johnson, and starring Jack NicholsonShelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. A writer, Jack Torrance, takes a job as an off-season caretaker at an isolated hotel. His young son possesses psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, such as the ghosts who inhabit the hotel. Soon after settling in, the family is trapped in the hotel by a snowstorm, and Jack gradually becomes influenced by a supernatural presence; he descends into madness and attempts to murder his wife and son.

Paranormal Activity 

I don’t like things that go pump in the night and this is something I definitely won’t be watching anytime soon.

IT (i think that’s what it is called, the movies with the clown)

Obviously because it has a clown in it. I HATE CLOWNS. Whoever likes Clowns NEED HELP. End of story.

The Grudge (both American and Japanese versions) 

The Grudge is a 2004 American horror film, and is the first installment in the American horror film series of the same name. It is a remakeof the Japanese film Ju-on: The Grudge.

28 Days Later

Danny Boyle‘s acclaimed 2002 British horror film stars Cillian MurphyNaomie HarrisBrendan GleesonMegan Burns, and Christopher Eccleston. The plot depicts the breakdown of society following the accidental release of a highly contagious “rage” virus and focuses upon the struggle of four survivors to cope with the ruination of the life they once knew.

Saw (all of them)

Hostel

I’ve seen bits of both Hostel’s through an armpit of an ex-boyfriend but I won’t be watching it this through to the end ever again. A2005 horror film written, produced and directed by Eli Roth and starring Jay Hernandez. Due to the graphic nature of this film, its showing has been restricted in certain countries.

So these movies I won’t be watching anytime soon. Instead I’m going to stick to kiddie movies and romcoms. Go me. Out of everything I want to go and see this movie right now…
