Celebrity Smackdown: Tom Cruise and Scientology

It’s Wednesday and if you know CoupleDumb, we need to do a smackdown! But, who do we smackdown during therapy week? Would we smack Freud? Hell no! Sigmund Freud is the forefather of modern psychology and, despite the obvious chauvinistic qualities to his theories, his developmental stages still hold true and were the model for further theories. So we had to scourge the world for an appropriate target. Who out there has disparaged the practice of psychology? Who has dismissed dysfunction and diagnoses as quackery? Who, in a very glib fashion, stated that psychiatry in general is destructive and abusive? If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last few years you know we are talking about Scientology’s boy-toy Tom Cruise. You’re wondering, ‘Hey guys aren’t you afraid they are going to sue you and harass you and have a dingo steal your baby?’ CoupleDumb does not back down and our answer to that is ‘Bring it ON!’

Celebrity Smackdown: Heidi and Spencer

We don’t know whether it was the second or third child. We don’t know whether it was turning 40 a few years ago. We don’t know whether it was an overdeveloped sense of good taste but we readily admit some popular culture has totally escaped us. We refuse to dress in the same clothes we wore in the 70s and 80s. Lee has a picture of her mom next to a Pontiac sporting a frosted wig, leotard, red pants, zebra coat and big bee-eyed sun-glasses which today would be really cool. We have missed much and what little we know comes from listening to the music our 16 year likes, reading the Twilight series for the literary value and the occasional mention of stuff on TMZ or Perez. So this week’s Celebrity Smackdown is based on what little we know of a certain young couple in the land of notoriety. However, to know them little is probably a good thing.

Celebrity Smackdown: William Shakespeare

Love is a many splendored thing. Many artists have tried to capture the essence of love but few have succeeded. Even today, romantic films often fall into the morose category and leave love somewhere on the cutting room floor. Few artists have had the impact on this four letter word than one writer. So this weeks Celebrity Smackdown is a little different. It will be a posthumous smackdown in some part. I wonder if they have internet in heaven and if Shakespeare is on Facebook?

Celebrity Smackdown: CelebriKin (Unfamous family of marginally famous people)

We are writers despite what you might think. We have written a few books now and are looking for representation so we can be published. So we have a question. Does everyone who gains some notoriety have a messed up family flailing their arms behind them to get noticed? We’ve heard of Stage Moms but nowadays a celebrities parents or sibling gets paparazzi after them as if they actually did something. Have we become that fame starved? This week’s Celebrity Smackdown goes to the most disgusting of the hanger-ons in Hollywood. I’m talking about Celebrity Families and they should be ashamed of themselves.

Celebrity Smackdown – Mel Gibson

It’s a Dysaffirmation week and we are enjoying the sideways glances from all. Yes, we know your dirty little secret. Our Dysaffirmations are funny but some are so true. When people bitch and moan about the truth, we simply point to what people believe. If you repeat it enough times, it becomes true. If your parents or other significant life figure tells you enough times, it becomes true. Just ask Mel Gibson.

Smackdown for Jenny

It’s Mother’s week on CoupleDumb! With all the hubbub surrounding Lee being chosen as a finalist for Mom Logic’s Mother of all Bloggers contest (VOTE NOW!) and our radio show on Thursday for Mom’s Nite Out, who has time to write and rant? Unfortunately for the children of the world, there are still Moms who deserve the smackdown and we would be shirking our responsibility to our public if we didn’t say it like it was. So, today’s Celebrity Smackdown is for a mom who we feel is not only doing a disservice to her child but to all our kids. As parents of a child diagnosed with a Spectrum Disorder (Autism and its friends), we understand how devastating it is to know that your child will not be able to function like other kids. So please take a peak at our open letter to Jenny McCarthy.

Celebrity Smackdown: The porn industry

We have been talking about sex this week and nothing can substitute for good sex like a good rant. And this week’s smackdown we are going big. What did you ask? Going after the Pope wasn’t big enough? No. Unfortunately, our subject for this week’s Celebrity Smackdown is bigger than the pontiff and Disney combined. They are constantly pushing people to raise the bar and more is better. That’s right, we are going after the porn industry and God help us if that tape we made 19 years ago ever gets leaked.

Some actor guy that we can not mention is an asshole.

We all have dreams. Some people have dreams of being successful and rich. Some others would forego all of that to be able to express themselves artistically. Musicians, painters, writers and performers have been known to live in squalor to be able to practice their craft. Then you get Hollywood douche bags like Billy Bob Thornton to come and dash the dreams and hopes of some impressive musicians because he thinks he’s Tom Petty. Canada kicked you out and now be prepared to get the Smackdown from CoupleDumb!
