BANTER BLENDER #100: Damian Holbrook on “Gotham,” “Scorpion,” and Trolling the iPhone in a Samsung Commercial

This week, we’re joined by Damian Holbrook (TV Guide Magazine) who recently gained notoriety after his snarky Twitter dig at the new iPhone wound up in a Samsung commercial. We talk about how that happened, what the response has been, and how Damian is dealing with the onslaught of iPhone fanboys.

Then it’s on to Fall TV. We discuss some of the most talked-about shows, starting with “Gotham,” then “Scorpion” and then of course “The Mysteries of Laura.”

Lots of fun stuff here. Come listen!

Gretchen Rossi Tweets The Joke

Makeup maven, handbag designer, comedienne? Yes, add that title to Gretchen Rossi’s growing roster of professional endeavors. The star of Real Housewives of Orange County is this week’s Tweet The Joke celebrity host, which means that she’ll be tweeting out jokes through Friday. Well, she’ll sort of be tweeting out jokes. She actually just tweets out the setup, and then we have to come up with the punchline. For example, today Gretchen wrote “What do you call a gay dinosaur?” I, of course, submitted my own witty response (“Duh-wight.” You know, from Real Housewives of Atlanta? Because he’s old and gay? Get it? GET IT???).

Anyway, I’m not sure if submitting jokes means that Gretchen will actually interface with you, but it’s worth a shot, especially if you want some Beauté tips.
