Another Reason Why We Don’t Need Political Advice From Celebs

By Debbie Schlussel
In the August 6, 2007 issue of Newsweek, Catherine Zeta-Jones, star of “No Reservations,” reminds us why nothing celebs say is relevant or in touch with reality:

This is Your Brain on Drugs. Any Questions?

Q & A: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Zeta-Jones plays a chef in the movie “No Reservations.” She spoke to Nicki Gostin.
Is it true you couldn’t boil water?
I can, but I must admit I never got boiling an egg right. If someone wanted a hard-boiled egg I’d boil it till the shell exploded, and if they wanted it soft, it would be raw. I actually think cooking an egg is quite a difficult feat to pull off.
Do you cook for your kids?
I do now. I have somebody who helps me cook at home.

Can’t boil an egg. Thinks cooking eggs is “quite a difficult feat.” Hmmm . . . and I thought it was just one of the basics, like Mac & Cheese.
But to insulated Hollywood . . . .

Your brain really must be on drugs to take these people seriously. Their explicit display of ineptness rather amuses me.Their perennial stupidity and their aptitude for their incoherence ( much to their credit) can qualify them a position at Homeland Insecurity. Having said that so eloquently, perhaps there lies a contingency for Catherine Zeta-Jones to run a Culinary school or to be promoted as the head chef with her cooking disabilities. At least she has the capacity to make reservations.

I cook very well, but hard boiled eggs? You cannot test for doneness. There are tricks not to get them too rubbery, without the green hue, etc.
Frying? That is another matter.
Not defending, just saying.
At least she has the capacity to make reservations.
Ah but can she KEEP the reservation? /Seinfeld mode off

So we shouldn’t listen to people who can’t cook? So does that mean we should ignore the vast majority of college kids and bachelors?
And if we’re basing who we should listen to around food, let’s remember that Bush nearly choked to death eating a snack sized pretzel…I’m just sayin…

I could careless what kind of crap comes out of her mouth. Hell, I can cook. As long as she still holds that smokin body when Im 65.

I’ve said this a million times to people who say they can’t cook. If you can read, you can cook. That’s what Betty Crocker is all about. Maybe Ms Jones is illiterate, or just plain stupid.

I feel like such an intellectual, I have no idea who this woman is.

Can’t boil and egg, huh? Toast, anyone? (Hmm, I thought Michael Douglas was looking a little anorexic).

The more one has to expose oneself the more one exposes themself. Just sayin’.
