Little did we know that the much talked about Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais had an interesting past! He doesn’t talk about it much, but Ricky was the lead singer in a new wave pop duo from the 80’s called Seona Dancing. Ricky and a school friend, Bill Macrae, got together in 1982 and were signed by London Records. They released two singles and we found this video at The Huffington Post. Ricky, above right, looks HOT!

    strom: you are such a hideous excuse for a human being, why don’t you go hang yourself in the closet?

    Ricky G. comes off very similar to early David Bowie in looks as well as sound. Don’t know if that was on purpose or just a sign of the times. Funny that he started out in entertainment as a skinny singer and then went to chubby comedian, and then unchubby actor, all the while never bothered to fix his “English teeth”. Cough up the dough Ricky and get em done, the snaggle-toothed look is so Neanderthal.

    Hautie: good eye! You’re right. Altho this guy is an improvement over the ever-gross Paulie.

    Hey, Indy, notice that Ricky has the triangle-head deformity that seems to be prevalent in those coming from England (along with the hideous teeth issue). Well, at least you can FIX your teeth…as for the triangle head, maybe the perfect hairdo could camouflage it, and if not just never be caught without your bowler hat (or 80’s hair-do as in the background guy who could be smuggling some serious triangle head under that hair)!

    Exceptionally bad video, typical of the 80’s. Was that guy in the background beating on bathroom fixtures with a tire iron? Maybe they could send him over to Zsa Zsa’s garden.

    Reta, yes, that appears to be true about triangle heads, our boy Pattinson, being #1.

    Reta, for more information on Kelly Preston’s first baby with Kevin Gage, I found out some stuff via detective work. Scroll down til you come to the pics of Kelly, John, and baby Ben and it is on there. Cheers.

    Thank you strom for keeping your finger on the “pulse” of gay issues.

    Denise, gotta say I am a big fan.
    And Patrick, I’ll out dance you any night. My ex was in two bands, played guitar and piano and I was always the first person up and the last one off the dance floor. Give me a great beat and I’m off, but then you knew that already, right? (The being off part). OH, and by “beat” (hearing strom in the back of my head) I mean drumbeat not come after me with the biggest stick you can find, or in strom’s case one-inch stick). Oh, but I flatter him…

    PS: Yes, Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” has always been a fav, The Cars (anything) Talking Heads, Blondie, Boomtown Rats (I Don’t Like Monday’s) they were one of my favorite alltime bands with Bob Geldorf in the lead. FANTASTIC!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
