Please note: I have not forgotten about my loyal Platinum Pen readers. I love this blog and I have invested SO much of my time and energy into this, and I still plan to keep it running. Things will just be a little slow for now, as I think the content of the blog will change to some degree. I need to figure things out, but this is DEFINITELY still going to be around.
For now, until I update further, please visit http://marcmalkin.eonline.com to see some of my reporting!!!

But as far as my comments go in regards to the acting and the characters and so forth, I do take it all back. I met the majority of the cast last night, and I spoke to them individually at great length. They were the most normal, funny, lighthearted, down-to-earth people I've ever met in this business, and I hope newfound fame does not change them.
So with that said, yes, I do look at this show in a little bit of a negative way (based on where my heart is--with Aaron Spelling and such), but I will not say anything else negative about the show from this point on. I wish the show and the characters all the very best.

This 3-day weekend was far more than I ever could have imagined. It was SO much fun! On Friday I went to OC, and then for the rest of the weekend I pretty much covered all of LA--hitting up everything from the hotspot gay clubs on Santa Monica Blvd., to the hostpot regular clubs in Hollywood/West Hollywood, to random bars in Studio City, to parties in the West Hollywood Hills. and the list goes on. I feel so full from eating and drinking all through the weekend.
last night, my roommates and I hosted the official Chingy Comeback Movement party. It was badazzz.
Now I'm just tired and in recovery mode. Not hungover at all or anything like that. More just like in hunger-hangover mood. Ate soooo much. But wow, so much fun!
I will post more later. For now, I'm just trying to focus on staying awake and doing my job.

The lesser-known of the Knowles sister duo made an appearance on a Las Vegas Fox channel to talk about I guess her album or something. And naturally, the producers of the show planned to ask her about Jay-Z selling his Vegas club 40/40. I don't see this being a particularly juicy question. It's not like it's related to some scandal. She could have given some B.S. answer. Give these journalists a break for doing their freakin job! But instead, she gets all defensive on the reporter who happened to appear confused. Watch as Solange calls the station out for introducing her on TV in such an "unprofessional" manner, and the producer tells her that the question about Jay-Z didn't even appear on air.
But anyway, Doherty and Garth revealed some skankalicious 411 about the premiere of the 90210 remake. And this scandalousness is shit that wouldn't even appear in an ep of Melrose Place for crying out loud.
"All I know is there's a girl giving a guy a blowjob in the first episode," says Doherty.
"I thought, Aaron Spelling is rolling over in his grave right now," Garth reacts.
And EW also gets to the nitty gritty of Tori Spelling's not-so-best-selling memoir which I saw sitting on a table next to a rack carrying the Lauren Conrad Collection at the Kitson outlet store only two months after publication. So sad.
EW says, "In Tori Spelling's book sTORI Telling, she tells some pretty harsh stories about you, Shannen. Did you read the book?"
And the newly mature Doherty responded all properly, saying, "I will censor myself out of respect for Jennie because she's friends with Tori. I got passages sent to me and a vast majority of it is incredibly exaggerated. Maybe it's a difference of how I was raised. I just don't believe you write personal on-set experiences in a book. For me, when you work it's almost a sacred experience whether you get along with everyone or not. In 27 years of acting I've never sold out one of my cast members. Ever. And I will stick to that."
Tori is pathetic. We all know she was a bitch of her own right in those days. But she felt like selling out her former co-stars was a good way to make a buck. Note to Tori: nobody cares about your stupid book or the stupid drama you have to recount by living vicariously through people who had a far more exciting life than you!

Janice Min's famed celeb tabloid took a break from the Speidi sagas and finally decided to place an icon on it's cover!!! I have nothing more to say except that I want to murder the new 90210, but I am thrilled that at least it's giving my idol Shannen Doherty the exposure she still deserves. I am the hugest 90210 fan on the planet and I always will be. Nobody loves her/Brenda more than myself, and I proudly and confidently state this.
Shannen's probably pissed that she has to share a cover with a newbie like Carrie Underwood. [snooze]. Shannen should have been granted the entire cover. Nobody in the world is worth sharing the Goddess of television's space!--well, except maybe Jason Priestley. He's kinda the effing sh*t!

God's gift to the Armenian kind, AKA Kimberly Kardashian, has been rushed to the ER at a hospital in New York after slicing her foot open on a glass table. Reports are saying there was so much blood from the incident that it looked like a murder scene!
Buttt....this could be a blessing in disguise for the sexpot, as reports are also saying that this mishap may result in the inability for Kimmy to partake in Dancing With the D-Listers as was originally planned. You know she did this shit on purpose. She realized what a complete mistake she'd be making by agreeing to do the worst show ever! So she went through all this! Good choice, Kim. It'll all be worth it in the end.

Ugh, I need to finish this post and publish it, because the longer I am forced to look at this gawd-awful photo, the more angry I am increasingly getting by the minute!

Per Perez, Mr. Knight is super close to coming out to the public and he currently does have a boyfriend. So is he dating fellow gay boy-bander Lance Bass? Nope, apparently the former Sweet Valley High actor is named Harley (eew) and currently works as a trainer at Barry's Bootcamp in L.A.
So if Lance Bass turned out gay from NSYNC, and Jordan Knight is apparently gay from NKOTB, then (at least) one of the Jonas Brothers has to be gay, too, right? I mean it would only be fitting for boy band statistics. I kinda think all of those Jonas Bros are gay, but that's just me. I mean, those chastity rings they wear have got to be a cover-up to avoid having to sleep with a woman.
But I will give big ups to the network for making the show last this long...and it's still goin for that matter! 2000 epsiodes is a lot of music videos, a lot of guests and a lot of Freestyle Fridays.
Keyshia Cole, Big Tig, Soulja Boy, Jennifer Hudson, Busta Rhymes, Terrance Howard, and a much too heavily tattooed Bow Wow all came on the monumental episode yesterday to chat up the crowd or perform a song.
Congrats, 106 & Park!
