The PopWatch Confessional (Vol. 35)
Spot Inspection: What’s your current obsession?
Mine is cowboys. I know this because:
(1) I just spent three days at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut watching the PBR (that’s Professional Bull Riders), and returned home with: the 2008 “Cowboy Hunks” calendar; photos of myself with seven of the sport’s finest (including top-ranked Justin McBride, who, this just in, sings!*); and the firm belief that watching a man mount a 1,900-lb. beast named Evil Forces while “You Shook Me All Night Long” blares in the arena is somewhat of a turn on.
(2) When I received an email announcing WE’s new dating reality show Girl Meets Cowboy (premieres Oct. 14), I responded immediately asking to see the first episode.
not-so secretly hoping that the Hallmark Channel is about to repeat its 2003 original Straight From the Heart, starring Andrew McCarthy and Teri Polo.
* “Beer Drinkin Songs” doesn’t entirely suck.
