The "Insider/Entertainment Tonight" nexus is always good for a laugh or two.
Tonight, "The Insider" covered John Travolta and Kelly Preston's freakish Scientology crusade against the use of psychotropic drugs – which Travolta mispronounced, as in, "Psycho Tropic of Cancer." Appallingly, the show did so with a straight face, even billing the wackos' harmful work as "humanitarian."
It's a little hard to take Travolta seriously when he gives the name of a website as "fight-for-kids-dot-organization." (And is it really a surprise that he will be playing a role made famous by Divine?)
And then on "Entertainment Tonight," we were provided with a cruel tease regarding Tyra Banks fainting spell on "America's Next Top Model," which was to air tonight.
What caused it? Did Tyra not eat enough grains of rice for dinner? Was her Victoria's Secret bra on too tight? Did the helium that was holding her head aloft finally escape through her ears?
Apparently she was "acting." I guess you have to "act" when you're a model.
