10 Most Fascinating People of 2012: Part Deux

Pin It Alright, party people! Here is part two of two in my list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012. 

5. Amanda Bynes's Publicist

I don't actually know who this person is. However, he/she is a fascinating individual. Being able to put a spin on a few DUI's and pass it off as exhaustion? FASCINATING! Calling Amanda's stint in out-patient rehab a "spa get-away"? YOU DON'T SAY!. Seriously, I think I'm most fascinated because if they just came out and said, "Hey, Amanda Bynes has a bit of an issue and is suffering from post-child-star-traumatic-stress-disorder," I think we would all be like "alright. Cool. Amanda's getting the help she needs." Your client has probs, Mr/Miss Publicist! Own it, yo!

4. The Brown Family: the cast of Sister Wives

I will admit that I'm a pretty faithful viewer of the TLC series, Sister Wives. Polygamy is a concept that I don't really know too much about, and Mormonism is a religion that I am not all that familiar with. I really don't agree with the concept of polygamy, and I certainly do not agree with the way that Cody Brown runs his family, I still can't look away!

3. Mindy Kaling

I don't know what else to say, other than I kind of want to be Mindy Kaling when I grow up. She is beyond hysterical, and it's just the kind of humor that I appreciate...slightly quirky, sarcastic, and ironic. I think that she is the next generation in women in comedy.

2. Guiliana Rancic

Not only do I find this woman fascinating, but I also truly admire her. This woman has been to hell and back over the last year or so, with her challenges conceiving a child, being diagnosed and treated for breast cancer, and undergoing a double mastectomy. However, I think that she is the face of resiliency in the face of adversity. I also think that she is a perfect example of the saying "God wouldn't bring you to it if he couldn't bring you through it." She and her husband, Bill, were blessed with their little baby boy, Edward Duke Rancic, via surrogate, this fall. Everything happens for a reason!

1. Baby Kimye

Oh, Kardashian family. You really are the masters at pop-culture and publicity gold. Announcing the pregnancy merely days before the premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami? Like I said, PR GOLD. The spawn of Kim Kardashian and Kayne West will, undoubtedly, be the talk of 2013...so we'll name him/her number 1 on this blog and give the little nugget a jump start. 
Congrats, Kimye Nugget! You're fascinating!

10 Most Fascinating People of 2012: Part One

Pin It

Hey friends!

   Yes, I am still alive. I have been a naughty little slacking blogger lately.  Life has been sooo busy, but I am loving every minute of my new life as a "Mrs."!

So as you all probably know (unless you're into that whole living-under-a-rock thing), Ms. Barbara WaWa is getting ready to air her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012. I have been an avid viewer of this annual special for several years, mostly because Babs typically has some humdingers that leave me scratching my head..."they're FASCINATING? Let's not get carried away here. *Ahem Justin Bieber ahem*." 

That being said, inspired by one of my favorite bloggers Taylor, over at The Daily Tay, I decided to compile my own list of the most fascinating people of 2012. We'll split this into two parts, because I know you'll be waiting with baited breath for the second installment (and mostly because I can't think of 10 people right now...because there are so many people I'm dumbstruck  fascinated by).

10. Andy Cohen, Bravo tv.

Ok, I'll admit, I love me some sweet, sweet Andy Cohen. I think that this dude, as an Executive Producer for the Bravo TV network, really has an eye for the mindless crap that will suck viewers in. And, Andy, you have made a believer out of me! Not only that, but, dear Andy, I have to commend you for sitting through all of those interviews with Theresa Guidice and not smacking her false eyelashes off of her face. Bravo, Andy. Bravo, indeed.

9. Antoine (aka, the dude that looks like an alpaca)

If you haven't seen this video somewhere on the inter webs  please take a moment to view it. I think my fascination with him lies in two parts-- 1) he basically coined the phrase "hide yo kids, hide yo wife". And 2) how many people have YOU seen that look like an alpaca? And I don't even say that to be mean. I mean, seriously, he OWNS IT. You work it, you little alpaca, you!

8. Hugh Jackman

Oh, Hugh. Sweet, sweet Hugh. Honestly, is there anything that you cannot do? I've been a fan of Hugh Jackman's for YEARS. Ever since he was in that little movie with Ashley Judd, Someone Like You, and I used to listen to The Boy from Oz, which he starred in on Broadway. And now, we've got him portraying one of the most demanding roles in musical theatre and film, Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables. I admit, I'll probably be one of those cookoo's that goes to see it on Christmas Day, and I'll probably cry through the whole thing, but you know what? I ain't even mad about it.

7. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

Full Disclosure: I'm kind of a geek about British History. Even more so when it comes to the monarchy. So, you can imagine the level of geek-dom that occurred when Price William and Kate tied the knot. And now, she's going to have a cute little royal nugget! I think Kate is fascinating for so many reasons, but among them, I think that she just seems so approachable. I find this so endearing because her grandmother-in-law is just the opposite, I feel. Additionally, I love her sense of style, and I also think that she has gotten William to chill out a little bit.

6. Mama June

I know that my girl, Babs, named Honey-Boo-Boo as one of her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012. But, I truly think that her mom, Mama June, is the most fascinating. She is, after all, the originator of Go Go Juice and the brains behind the operation that IS Honey Boo Boo. Mama June likes to cool off in the local swamp on hot summer days, and also enjoys making lemonade with straight lemon juice and exactly one pound of sugar. Mama June also loves her man, Sugar Bear. Well you know what, Mama June? You make my heart smile.

Stay tuned for The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012: Part Deux!
