Who Gives A Twit? Brooke Burke, Elizabeth Taylor, Gene Simmons…

by | July 1, 2009 at 2:00 PM | Who Gives A Twit


Brooke Burke knows how keep her family stepping out for free. Today Brooke twitted us a pic of her attractive clan from their new Skechers ad. Sample campaign ad, “We’re all great looking and we wear Skechers!” Also, seems like a sweet tattoo on Brooke’s foot…

File this under “The Six degrees of Twitteration.” Yesterday, Us Weekly broke the news that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of his two children with Debbie Rowe, but rather Rowe’s former boss and MJ’s dermatologist Arnold Klein is. Interestingly, 3 days before Michael passed, his extremely close friend Elizabeth Taylor was twitting to the esteemed Doc. “I will never be able to thank my dear friend, Dr. Arnold Klein enough for the stunning drawing by Matisse.” Liz’s very next tweet came 3 days later, “My heart…my mind…are broken. I loved Michael with all my soul and I can’t imagine life without him.” This is without a doubt the ultimate in the six degrees of twitteration… Also, I agree with Liz. Gotta be hard to thank anyone enough for a Matisse.

One would think that having a hit television show like A&E’s Family Jewels would keep Gene Simmons busy enough, but he’s got some real problems to face with facebook, “about to reach the max of 5000 friends on facebook. Then what?” I would worry more about why you have 20k followers on Twitter while Donnie Wahlberg has over 75k.

Just because her man Reggie Bush has an endorsement deal with Reebok, doesn’t mean that Kim Kardashian can’t be out there searching for her own deal. Kim twitted us that an American Idol judge is also an All-American when it comes to his contacts in the athletic world. “I love Randy Jackson 4 introducing me 2 Tracy Gray @ Nike!!! Love Nike” Don’t you get enough free stuff from Reggie? In any event, you work that swag girl.

And early this morning the very sexy Armenian Princess (that’s what her twitter bio says) also twitted us some workout tips, Kim Kardashian @6:44AM 7/1/09: if u can’t get 2 a gym today work out at home! Do squats, lunges, stomach & arm dips” Prediction. Kim will sign a deal with Nike to come out with her own line of work out clothes.

Meanwhile television’s hottest trainer – The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels – twitted the alternative to Kim’s tips with a short cut to boring and tedious workouts. “Learn to cheat genetics. Body-sculpting teaches you which areas to work to give you the body you want!” That’s Jillian’s polite way of saying, “Visit your plastic surgeon for a consultation, tubby.”

Time to twit it out my fellow t’weeps…

Alyssa Milano @2:07PM 6/30/09: Please welcome my Charmed sister, Rose McGowan to twitter. Just got an email from her confirming that @mcgowanrose is her @name.” M.C.

The show is the angel and that ad is Like the devil on the other shoulder” Bill Engvall @9:59PM 6/30/09: Eric Clapton just did Layla acoustic. Gotta be honest, really disappointed.” Dr. Drew Pinsky @ “I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying.”- Woody Allen”

Hilarious. I wish Woody was on Twitter…

What do I give a Twit about? I’m hooked already on Bravo’s ‘NYC Prep.’ Spoiled teens, and lots of drama!
