Golden Globes Undressed! The Worst
By Kat Giantis
Special to MSN Entertainment
Cathouse Call: There are many exclamations a star in haute couture hopes to hear as she arrives on the red carpet, but "Holy cats, has Renée Zellweger been rummaging around in Sharon Stone's medicine cabinet?" isn't one of them. That is, unless she was trying to look like Miss Kitty from "Gunsmoke" after she quietly branched out into the brothel business. The puckered-lipped Oscar winner suffers an epic failure in a crackpot outfit from her longtime go-to designer Carolina Herrara, who definitively proves that sheer black organza over one's unmentionables does not a top make (see Gwyneth "Granny Panties" Paltrow for additional evidence). While Zellweger's trumpet skirt might have been tolerable if paired with something (anything) other than a see-through overlay and a creepy, flesh-colored corset, there's nothing that can overcome her screwball corkscrew updo, which appears to have been styled with an industrial strength bottle of Super Glue and an electric cattle prod.

The highlight of the article is:
'There’s a voice on the speakers that wakes everyone out of the moment: it’s Frank Sinatra singing “My Way.” His ode to defiance is four decades old this year and everyone sings along for a lifetime of reasons. I am struck by the one
quality his voice lacks: Sentimentality.
Is this knotted fist of a voice a clue to the next year? In the mist of uncertainty in your business life, your love life, your life life, why is Sinatra’s voice such a foghorn — such confidence in nervous times allowing you romance but knocking your rose-tinted glasses off your nose, if you get too carried away.
A call to believability.
A voice that says, “Don’t lie to me now.”
That says, “Baby, if there’s someone else, tell me now.”
Fabulous, not fabulist. Honesty to hang your hat on.'

I made scrambled eggs and chopped summer sausage for brunch New Year's day.:)
Later that day, we stopped at Cracker Barrel and I had my 'good luck' black-eyed peas to start the New Year right. (my friend told me about this tradition, and wouldn't you know it one of Cracker Barrel's specials was black-eyed peas!)
I wish everyone a safe, wonderful, and peaceful New Year.:)
