The Entertation Index: December 29

December 29, 2009

China, Hollywood In2012 became the top-grossing Hollywood film in China this year, amassing the equivalent of $67.3 million USD and passing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  The Chinese government allows in only 20 films from the West per year, and controls their distribution.  Western studios are clamoring for more access to the huge population, but given that the Chinese people chose 2012 and Transformers: ROTF as their favorites, we suggest China keep it at 20.

Gosselin, Jon –The Jon & Kate Plus Eight star returned from a Christmas trip to find his NYC apartment vandalized.  Furniture, luggage, and clothing had been slashed with a butcher knife; and a Wii, Blu-Ray player, and pots and pans had been stolen.  The burglar or burglars were unable to find any of Gosselin’s propriety or dignity, however, and had to leave without.

Kardashian, Kim – The reality TV star visited Ashton Kutcher on-set and was entertained by a magician named Dynamo who, according to People magazine, “made a monkey appear.”  (We’re not sure if this is a euphemism.)  The simian promptly peed on Kardashian.  When asked why, Kim supposedly said, “I don’t know!  I just asked him what he thinks of season 4 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians!”

Schaech, Johnathon – Forty-year-old Schaech recently proposed to his 26-year-old girlfriend, actress Jana Rae Kramer of One Tree Hill, and posted a video of the event (plus commentary) on Facebook.  The couple met on the set of 2008’s Prom Night.  We wish them the best and couldn’t care less about the age difference, but we urge Kramer to keep in mind that she wasn’t even alive when the first Prom Night (1980) came out.

Shore, Jersey – Color us shocked! that Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was a male stripper before starring on MTV’s hit(?) show.  At least as shocked as when we found out brother-in-chumpery Channing Tatum had also found work as an, um, exotic dancer.

Trump, Ivana – Trump had to be physically escorted off of a flight when she ignored crew orders to calm down.  The Donald’s first ex-wife, who just divorced her fourth husband, became agitated when rambunctious children were running up and down the aisles.  While no charges have been filed yet, courts are expected to sentence Ivana to a fifth marriage.
