Culture: The first and only time “The Marriage Ref” will ever be funny

  • OK Ricky, we admit it. We put crack in your drink. Pretty much everything about “The Marriage Ref” is stupid as heck, especially the fact that Jerry Seinfeld produced it, but at least the celebrities appearing on the show seem to realize it too. Ricky Gervais calls it “the weirdest show I’ve ever been on,” and is bewildered at his fellow celebrity guests – Larry David and Madonna. At least the celebrities agree that this show sucks. source

Culture: Madonna fell off a horse again. And no, it wasn’t her high horse.

  • The Material Girl also fell off a horse in 2005. Between the Kabbalah, the adoptions, the sex books and the lengthy pop career, Madonna has a pretty interesting life. But we bet you didn’t know Madonna rode horses, too. And she tends to fall off of them, too. In 2005, the pop singer broke a bunch of bones when she fell off one at her birthday party. She didn’t hurt herself that badly this time, just bumps and bruises, but isn’t it weird that she was on a freakin’ horse in the first place? source

Culture: Saving the children, one at a time: Madonna looks to adopt again

  • Well, that’s one way to build a family. Madge has taken a specific liking to the children of Malawi, where she adopted her son David a few years back. Now she wants to adopt Mercy James, a young orphan who would be a sister for David. A court will hear her case next week. By the way, Madonna is 50, which means she’s AARP-eligible. source
