Yeah? Well, you like the Prince of Wales' ex-wife AFTER the crash

While breezily joining SAG today, one of the membership employees and I had a lil' chuckle when she sportingly asked me:

"How's your wife Tori doing?"

"I'm sorry?" I replied, a bewilderedly good-natured grin yawning across my face like I've just been told, simultaneously, that I just won a million dollars, but, somehow, the money is INSIDE OF ME.

"Your wife...Tori Spelling?"

I don't know who Tori Spelling is married to. Largely, because I don't give a shit, but, mostly, because I can't even remember the names of the spouses of close friends and relatives, let alone the quasi-celebrity husband of some over-privileged dildo. And yet, despite my obvious embarrassed confusion, she continued:

"You look just like him. You must get that a lot."

"I don't."

"You will."

And with that last bit of ominous prophecy, she was gone; back to the computer where she will no doubt suck the remainder of an extra's meager funds for his crowd scene in Spider-Man 3. Again, because I don't know what Tori Spelling's husband looks like, I was terrified. As I've written before, one of my biggest pet peeves is the average American's sometimes desperate urge to tell you which celebrity you resemble most. For some, like my girlfriend, this is NOT a problem. She gets Angelina Jolie, arguably the current front-runner for most attractive female celebrity on the planet. Not long ago, I got Colin Hanks, who, up until his part in King Kong, I assumed had some sort of mild Downs Syndrome. It is this very unpredictability in the sport of star-equating that makes me extremely nervous. HOWEVER, the good news is that Tori Spelling's husband ain't half bad. His name is Dean McDermott, and he looks like this:



I'm just kidding, he looks like this:


So, if I must be billed as a younger "Dean McDermott," so be it. I'd like to hear his Cosby impression, but I'm sure he's very talented.

Speaking of talented, an old friend of mine, James "I'm not hispanic" Roday has got himself his own show on the USA Network called Psych. I say we support this show come Hell or high water. I, personally, don't have cable. So, you know...it's up to you. Besides, this man used to touch my balls...that's...that's something special:

I say we all chime in with who we think Gabe looks like. I've always thought Paul Rudd. Even before I knew who Paul Rudd was.

Gabe said...

don't i know it. Paul Rudd's got the career I'm yearning for. His whole gig is one long cameo. Think about it. He rarely does lead roles these days. He has a lot of friends who put him in awesome roles. SIGH

Yum!

Looks like all you need then is some friends. Someday. Someday.

Foxy said...

Uh...Roday is on like his 4th or 5th series. You're a bad friend.

Gabe said...

I'm counting this as his breakout lead role, Mr. Anju. That young lawyer bullshit thing wasn't going anywhere and that first series with Sean "Seriously, I'm not gay" Maher was a real train wreck. I'm just backing the right horse. And everybody KNOWS I'm a bad friend. Oh, and why do I know so much about James Roday's career?

Foxy said...

Because he touched your balls?

Gabe said...

oh...right...

Kath said...

Is this the guy who said "hey buddy, package?"

Gabe said...

the very same, yes

I could be worse, she could have offered sincere and heartfelt condolences for the death of your father-in-law:
