You look like Eva Braun.

Posted by Gwen |

My friend Peabody came over Sunday afternoon to watch the pre-Oscars red carpet festivities and we began by watching the coverage on E! which was partially hosted by these two clowns.  (On the left, Giuliana Rancic; on the right, Kelly Osbourne.)

Trust me when I tell you that the poor quality of the picture does not make them look any worse than they actually did.

Anyway, later in the show - you know, when the real celebrities arrived - Ryan Seacrest interviewed Helena Bonham Carter.  The entire time Seacrest was doing his thing on the red carpet, Kelly was in the studio gushing profusely about how much she loves Helena: she loves her; she loves her style; she loves that HBC doesn't care what people think.  It was uncomfortable but HBC graciously thanked her and commented, "You've gone blonde."

But what I heard HBC say was, "You look like Eva Braun."  We had to rewind to be sure and I can't tell you how disappointed I was to find out I was wrong.

Every bit of this story makes me think that the terrorists have a point :p

she looks alien

Wx3: Oh, indeed. I watch because I enjoy making fun of the spectacle and yelling obscenities at my TV.

Cat: Great minds think alike. Peabody and I were calling Rancic "The Alien" and Osbourne "The Clown." When she wanted me to switch to E!, she'd yell, "ALIEN AND CLOWN!"

You gotta' give Kelly credit. She looks better than she used to.

Bella said...

how much more awesome would Helena be if she actually said that? Makes me want to go tell someone that right now actually.

A freudian slip of the ear??

H.B.C. is a bit of an icon in our household.

You sure she didn't say "You make me yawn"?

"these two clowns" made me burst out laughing.

Rancic looks like she's just had novocaine. MORE SKINNIER!!

Looks like a Chinese/Nazi gang rape took place here in the comments. Unfortunately Hallmark doesn't make a card for this so... my condolences.

HBC is my daughter's hero. She LOVES her. That being said, I'm surprised she DIDN'T say "you look like Eva Braun," that kinda seems like something HBC would say.

Whiskeymarie said...

I like to think that you look more like a Caucasian Halle Berry.

Tony Van Helsing said...

HBC might have said 'I've left the iron on'.

Mommy Lisa said...

HBC should have worn her Queen of Hearts costume.

OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!

Incidentally, I'd much rather watch a red carpet show hosted by Eva Braun. Or any horrid dictator's significant other, really.

LOLA said...

I saw you listed on LegalMist's list of blogs that she lists and thought I'd drop by. I actually laughed out loud. I get the Eva Braun thing all the time -- yes, I look just like her. No, no, no, it's that the things I think people say are so much funnier than what they really say. And the stuff I think I see on signs is so much funnier at first glance than when I really read it. I am the Lovely Lola of WOMEN:WE SHALL OVERCOME a.k.a. dumpedfirstwife.blogspot.com and I like prescription meds very, very much.

Infinities of love,

Lola

pretty face!

i thought Giuliana looked awesome, I love her. I'm so bummed you think she's a clown :( As far as the Kelly Osbourne thing, I agree, I was never a fan of her. She's a bit too "unique" for my liking. And did you happen to catch Fashion Police where she continued to gush over celebrities that she has a lady crush on?! geesh!

lauren.tweed said...

omfg, I thought this was the Emmy's.. and to think that I was just laughing at Kelly Osbourne for being blonde... I look stupid now! :( hahaha at least i can laugh at myself!

Look at the faces that you were able to capture. They look so goofy.

Online Furniture Stores said...

Eek... I hope you didn't loose too much time on that.

Lol, why did you want HBC to say Kelly looked like Eva Braun? Kelly does look good I have to say...and HBC is classic.

fashion books said...

Helena Bonham Carter is strange - and awesome! That's funny you thought she said she looked like Eva Braun...HBC wouldn't say that about Kelly. Lolol.
