A baby for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend!


How wonderful that these two beautiful people are expecting! They should really make pretty babies!

Sorry that they have had trouble conceiving but it’s lovely that they are sharing about their struggles in support of others. The news indicated tonight referencing their story that 1 in 6 couples have trouble conceiving. I had no idea. That surprised me.

In case you are wondering YES  I love to keep up with “movie star” news. From the time I was old enough as a little girl I was looking at my momma and grandmama’s movie magazines. I have never lost this. Why not enjoy them. They put themselves in the public eye for us to enjoy!

What do you think?

John Travolta is surely “Staying Alive”!


Ok so yes the guy has really not aged well and he is a Scientologist but ever since “Saturday Night Fever”  I have been a huge fan.

You know all that stuff about him being gay. Which, let’s face it, if he was so what. Being gay is not a crime for pete’s sake. It does irk me that anyone at all would be threatened with that. In the book “Going Clear” about the supposed real scoop on Scientology, a “tell all person” who is close to Travolta scoops us that the Scientology big dog threatened our Johnny with this every time he wanted to leave Scientology. Apparently he has wanted to leave many many times. I don’t know why he didn’t just go. He may yet.  As far as the threatening him with being gay, they have smeared him in the tabloids multiple times with less than flattering stories of antics.

He’s done alot of memorable movies:

Tod in Boy in the Plastic Bubble 1976

Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever 1978 (love!)

Danny in Grease 1978 (never could like this even if it was John)

Bud in Urban Cowboy 1980 (love love love)

Tony Manero in Stayin’ Alive 1983 (loved but not as much as Saturday Night Fever)

James in Look Who’s Talking Too 1990 (loved this)

James in Look Who’s Talking Now 1993 (loved this movie)

Vincent in Pulp Fiction 1994 (I hated this movie and would have walked out of the theater but I couldn’t walk out on my guy Travolta)

Chili Palmer in Get Shorty 1995

Maj Vic “Deak” Deakins in Broken Arrow 1996 (one of my all time favs)

Michael in MIchael 1996 (one of my all times favorites.. love him as an angel)

Archer and Troy in Face Off 1997

Gov Jack Stanton in Primary Colors 1998

Brig General Quintard in the Thin Red Line 1998

Warrant Officer  Paul Brenner in The General’s Daughter 1999

Terf in Battlefield Earth 2000

Captain Mike Kennedy Ladder 49 2004

Edna Turnblad in Hairspray 2009 (he makes an unattractive woman for sure!)

Woody Stevens in Wild Hogs 2007

There are quite a few others of course but these are the ones that stand out to me.

and then there was Johnny Depp


For as long as I can remember I have loved movies! How about you? Currently I am just dying to see Black Mass. Not only is is true but Johnny Depp stars in it. Let’s face it what can Depp NOT do? Let’s see:

Lerner in Platoon 1986

And he did so many others but these are the ones that most come to mind and some of the ones I love the most. He is a magnificent actor not to mention an eccentric, mysterious and definitely intriguing person/character
