Good morning, Pineapple fans! It’s a beautiful morning, and it seems the heat is creeping back up on us. Although a high of 95 is still much better than 105. And a chance of rain this afternoon may bring some extra relief.
It’s a quiet morning here at Pineapple HQ. I think everyone is still sore from the golf tournament on Sunday. I am, and I can’t figure out what I did, other than run around like crazy all day. I didn’t do any of the heavy lifting like Brock and Charles did. It’s just one of life’s great mysteries, I suppose.
Barlow is on his way to North Carolina this morning to visit with a potential client. We wish him a safe journey, short lines at the airport, and a comfortable hotel bed. We’ll find out shortly if North Carolina is ready to Pick the Pineapple! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for travel updates from the Big Pineapple!
Do we have any Pineapple fans that are also fans of Dancing with the Stars? I’ve personally caught maybe 10 minutes of the show EVER, but it’s always fun when the names of the season’s dancers are released. If you haven’t seen it yet (drumroll, please!), the contestants for the new season are:
Personally, I celebrate the man’s entire catalog. To me, it doesn’t get any better than when he sings ‘When a Man Loves a Woman.’ Brandy
Where in the world has she been? Moesha got canceled nine years ago. Margaret Cho
I must admit, although the name was a tad familiar, I had no idea who this person was. Apparently she’s a comedienne. “Her performances have been seen by millions around the world.” Um, not by me. But good luck to Margaret. Rick Fox
Again, I didn’t know who he was. This could be because I’m not an NBA fan, and although his list of television and movie appearances is impressive, I’ve never seen any of them. So we’ll move on now. Jennifer Grey
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner!” Now this makes me happy! Jennifer Grey has been out of the spotlight for a while, after shooting to fame with hits such as “Dirty Dancing” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Rumor has it that a botched nose job messed up her career. Not because it looks bad, but just because she doesn’t look like herself anymore. I think she’ll definitely have a leg up, since she’s got all of that “Dirty Dancing” experience under her belt. David Hasselhoff
“Don’t Hassel the Hoff!” Oh, yeah, this should be entertaining. Although he used to be an attractive man, I just do not see the fascination. Germany is obsessed with this man, but I think his music and videos are absolutely ridiculous, although funny. Want proof? Click HERE. Hasselhoff was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most watched TV star in the world. What?! I bet he would be a good dancer, though, as long as he can stay sober and he can keep his cheeseburger addiction under control. Florence Henderson
It’s Mrs. Brady, “America’s Favorite Mom!” Who doesn’t love Carol Brady? I picked up a couple of fun facts about “The Brady Bunch” while researching for this blog: “The Brady Bunch” was only on for five seasons (seems like it would have been longer!) and it has never been off the air in the USA. Ah, such a feel-good show. Ms. Henderson has maintained a high level of professional success as a spokesperson for a zillion different products, and now serves as a motivational speaker. Kyle Massey
Another mystery for me. Then I realized that he is a Disney star. Although I admit to watching numerous episodes of iCarly, thanks to my niece and nephew, I have never watched “That’s So Raven” because I have an intense dislike for Raven-Symone. Bristol Palin
Ah, Bristol. Probably the only teenager in the world to get pregnant, engaged, unengaged, re-engaged, and then un-engaged again, and to announce each event on the cover of a national magazine. Audrina Patridge
Okay, I admit it, I watch “The Hills.” It’s a guilty pleasure, go ahead and laugh. And while a beautiful girl, Audrina is my least favorite. She just seems so…airheaded. (I know I sound like that now; it’s “The Hills”, for crying out loud.) But still. But she is in great shape, so she may be a good contender. Her ‘ceiling eyes’ bug me, though.Kurt Warner
Okay, I have already admitted that I’m not an NBA fan, so I guess this is where I say that I’m not an NFL fan, either. Kurt Warner is the first quarterback to participate in “DWTS.” That’s all I’ve got…sorry. But you can click on any of the contestant’s names for more information.And now for my personal favorite…
Yes, I watch “Jersey Shore.” Now that we’ve got that out in the open, I think The Situation will be a fabulous contestant! Yes, he’s arrogant, yes, he’s too tan and used entirely too much gel, but he does have an amazing body, and he’s in fantastic shape. I wish lots of good luck to Mike. He’ll probably get a significant amount of votes from women, because “Ladies Love The Situation!” So what do you think about this season’s line-up? The season premiere will be on September 20. I just might watch it this time. Until American Idol starts again, and then I don’t know what I’ll do!
