Iâ€™m not a guy that will sit on my ass and write about how pissed off I am because the bigger kids at school tried to steal my lunch money. I wonâ€™t write one either about that really cute girl that I wanted to ask to Prom who told me to get a life and she wouldnâ€™t even go with me if I was the last man on earth and there were no sheep! Are there sheep? What I will write and complain about until my face turns blue for lack of oxygen is when my time gets wasted! Thatâ€™s exactly what happened the other day, when I received an email asking me if I had any interest in interviewing the cast of Disneyâ€™s â€œPromâ€. I want to put an emphasis on the word CAST. That means the entire cast. Not the guy who was on screen for 5 min and nobody give a dam about.
Normally, I donâ€™t say yes to going to Macyâ€™s under any circumstances. Whether itâ€™s to meet the cast of a movie or if that cute blond girl from High School changed her mind and now wanted me to go with her. Well, technically, I guess I gave in because I said sure it sounded like fun because it would give me more time to speak with the cast than if I had done the premiere. I have not been more wrong in my life. But, I took the time to go to Macyâ€™s in Glendale and it could not have been more awkward because I am not the smallest guy at 6â€4-6â€6 (depending upon what convenient store I am exiting! LOL).
I have a question to ask all of the readers of this column. Do we really have Hollywood movie stars or real actors that we had in the past? I mean the time when the studios had an iron claw on the stars and being a star actually meant something!
Yes, today we still have a handful of Academy Award winning movie stars such as Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, and Clint Eastwood, who was a star back before I was born! With that said, we donâ€™t have stars like Steve McQueen, James Dean or an Audrey Hepburn.
Today, television is packed with reality shows that makes us lose lots of brain cells and for some reason, we become dumber after each one! We have a different group each year that try to get a record deal, win a date, lose 100â€™s of pounds, lots of Italians drinking, acting like idiots and these people are getting $100,000 dollars an episode! Are they serious? MTV is paying those losers that much?! Soon, MTV will become the network of Jersey Shore TV!
MTV is not the only network that has stepped away from its original business plan. Entertainment Television best known as E! is becoming the Kardashian television network with Ryan Seacrest adding more and more shows devoted to the Kardashian family! What is wrong with entertainment? HELL, WHATâ€™S WRONG WITH THIS WORLD??
This past weekend, the world of reality television came together to celebrate everything that is reality television. I must say that we just lost a few more brain cells because of the launch of Reality Rocks Expo! It just shows us that enough people like reality television enough that they would agree to pay $35 dollars to go see their favorite reality performer. I refuse to call them stars because in full reality, they have not done anything to get the star treatment that they are!
Itâ€™s not like sleeping with as many women or men in a big house rigged with lots of cameras is going to make you a star.Being a 4 foot supposed Italian who drinks and swears enough that your average sailor is going to wonder why you have such a big mouth, is not going to make you a star either. This is what networks are selling to the public. The sad and honest truth is that Americans and other countries in the world actually love watching what I consider train wreck television. Shows such as â€œThe Hillsâ€, â€œThe Cityâ€, â€œPregnant at 16â€, and â€œThe Kardashiansâ€ is television that makes us dumber and dumber every time we watch it.
The thing is the Los Angeles Convention Center was packed (or so they thought) with reality performers, fans and media who attended panels. Some of these panels, like Reality TV Changed my Life, Dating and Love in the reality spotlight were nonsese! On the panel of discussion, whatever you may want to call it, were performers/actors from Real Housewives of Orange County, Atlanta and Tough Love. What makes these people experts?

Donâ€™t laugh or call me a girl (HA) but, if youâ€™re anything like me, you might enjoy watching movies with lots of dancing! While watching some of these dance movies such as Hitch or The Step Up or any one of the Bring It On movies, you may have wondered who dancer number 1 was. That really cute dancer is Sarah Mitchell from Burlesque.
I was invited to attend the first annual Dance Track Magazine Artist Awards. I had never heard of such a thing or did I know anything about dancers or dancing for that matter, but I will explain that later. I have to admit that attending an event with all of these beautiful and talented young ladies intrigued me and it was an easy sell.
One of the girls even asked me to show her what I had! I had to tell her that I suffered an illness that kept me from dancing. I was not very surprised when she took a few steps back as she asked what that may be. Being the wise Ass I am, I told her being Caucasian!! She gave me a little smile and told me she could teach me a few moves! Unfortunately,I had to very nicely decline (What the hell is wrong with me?) and told her Iâ€™m like Kevin James in the movie Hitch and have been doomed to stay in the box!
I did have some fun with Chad Smith, who you may remember from Step Up 3, whose role was the guy who is like a human robot. He did perform a little and introduced us to his special someone that we wonâ€™t reveal here but check out Hollywood Unwrapped on You Tube to get the scoop.
Anyway, I also had the opportunity to have a little discussion with my new favorite dancer, Sarah Mitchell. To me, she could be the perfect 10 (just like the movie) as sheâ€™s seemed down to earth, approachable and just seems like a fun girl next door that sat behind you in math class and had that â€œitâ€ factor. Soon, youâ€™ll be able to see her on E! as she is a principal cast member and assistant choreographer under Laurieann Gibson on â€œThe Dance Sceneâ€ that will premiere this Sunday (April 10). Oh and did I mention she was a knicks city dancers? That is the dance team of the New York Knicks in case you are wondering.
This is why I love my job! This week, I had the opportunity to talk to Jason Ellis about his show EllisMania coming to FuelTV on April 9th.
The thing is, while I was discussing his huge resume that includes being a professional skateboarder, satellite radio host and now MMA fighter he told me to get in the ring and he would show me what the show was all about. Looking at this guy, I kept asking myself…WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO???
Well lucky for you, I was more then happy to let Mr Ellis show me what heâ€™s got! I believe in the process, I made the publicists worry for a minute that I was either a daredevil or just straight up nuts! What would they think that I,Jeremy Meyer, some guy in a shirt, jeans and no real MMA experience would agree to get in the ring with this professional fighter!
The people from Fortune Gym in Hollywood had me sign a release so if he beat me to a pulp, they here safe from me going after them for the legal bills! Anyway, they gave me a pair of gloves and to tell you the truth, I had no clue if they even fit correctly. I didnâ€™t have a mouth guard so Jason Ellis told me he would be nice and not hit me in my face.
I got a handful of what I thought were some good punches but Iâ€™m not afighter. I didnâ€™t tell them that I hadnâ€™t picked up a weight or run more then a very slow mile in about 7 years! I was sure that I was not in good enough shape to even think about being a challenge in the ring but I was stupid enough to give it a try and it didnâ€™t go too well.
I must thank him for being gentle with me and not fighting full on. As well as not hitting me in the face because I donâ€™t need more help getting better looking! HAHA! Lets put it this way-the promise didnâ€™t last long as a few minutes into our little fight, I gave him a hit to the head. He returned the favor after we hit each other in the stomach and I got a few shots in behind the head He would end it by giving me one good shot to the stomach with the hit bouncing back up. Then continued by giving me a good upper cut that would gave me the opportunity to see stars and Ellis was quick to apologize and ask if I was okay.
Yes, It was one hell of a hit but it was all good and I was ready for more but Fortune Gym actually ended our fight .Hereâ€™s my question does that mean I win? Did I get hit in the face and in the process get a technical knockout? I want to know what you think!!!!
While people where doing April fool jokes the joke was on me as I tried to take on an MMA fighter! FuelTV wants you to check out Jason Ellis on EllisMania. In the show, Jason prepares for and hosts
Ellismania 6, a self-branded evening of â€œfighting at its dumbest,â€ peppered with hilarious twists of comedy for the amusement of friends and fans lucky enough to witness the absurdity. The series also looks back at the craziness of the previous five Manias, where star-studded match-ups meet goofball antics, including shock collars and blindfolds, in the most original fighting event on the planet!!! The show premieres on FUEL TV Wednesday, April 6 at 10:00PM ET/PT.
Thatâ€™s my story of the day I stepped in the ring with an MMA fighter with no real preparation or training! He dared me to step in the ring and on the media release for the event it said â€œGet in the ring if you dare!â€ For my readers, I had to dare and at least give it a try. Now, itâ€™s time to go back and rest up my SORE BODY!! HAHAHAHA!
So pease make sure to catch the show because I do not want him to ask for a rematch.
