Will Kato Get His 16th Minute?????

Per L.A. event organizer Mac Africa, one-time mini-celebrity and professional houseguest Kato Kaelin (remember O.J.????) is down to the final three for a potential reality show on Fox Reality Channel.kato.jpg

The show is called “16th Minute” about all those 15-minute fame types who never got another look.

Mac is trying to drum up support for the former pal of O.J.’s. But she (yes, Mac is a woman) described the show as giving “people who have had their 15 minutes of fame, one extra minute.”

That minute theoretically makes them famous again.

“Watch Kato go on an emergency backed up toilet call at a kiddies party with Joe the Plumber.”

“Kato shows u why these people are famous by showing news clips and interviews from their past.”

Go to this link, watch a preview and vote 4 KATO.

Our day could only go down from here. Check out what our girl-crush says of Patti Smith: Dream of Life: “At times Smith does look like she was sculpted from marble, as when she stands in front of her husband’s grave. Impossibly long and angular, with a brutally beautiful face, she represents something that’s been rare in the popular culture in the past decade: an artist with a voice and a vision. In this respect, there’s a note of mourning in this otherwise celebratory film — for punk rock, for New York, for reality, for a time when popular music was animated by something other than money.” Sigh.

Meet Joe the Plumber*

If there is a lesson to be learned here maybe it is that it pays to speak up at rallies…or something. Whether Joe the Plumber is this election’s ‘Checkers’ moment remains to be seen, one thing is for sure, if Joe the Plumber manages to tap the right agent (of the hordes that have no doubt reached out to him in the last 18 hours) this is not the last we will be hearing from him. But wow, Joe the Plumber is no fan of “pretty talk” Obama. Maybe look for him at your next GOP rally!

*Or not. Turns out Joe’s not a plumber. His name isn’t Joe. And being singled out in a presidential debate more than two dozen times is the quickest way to let the IRS know you owe in back taxes. Still, this is America, so we imagine he will still manage to make money off this somehow.
