RA interview with BBC Radio today; watch latest RIII doc on YT


Just a reminder to all that the full interview with Richard Armitage regarding his career and recent discovery of “The King in the Car Park,” aka R III, will air at 11:10 a.m. GMT on BBC Radio Leicesterhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/radioleicester

I truly hope to be asleep at the time the broadcast could be heard live here, but will catch up later. I will be in town for a good portion of the afternoon, so not sure when I will get back with you all to discuss it. Humane Society meeting, a visit to the library, some shopping and an attempt to set up an appointment to trim my hair and wax the brows and ‘stache (yeah, I have one. Thank goodness it’s blonde).

Anyway, back to the Richard III story. The second Channel 4 documentary Richard III: The Unseen Story, is now available to watch ( for non-UK residents, anyway) on YouTube. Haven’t had a chance to watch it all yet, but it’s very interesting and features more of the science behind the find:

I am glad I didn’t read this about you, Mr. A.


In case you missed it, apparently one of those Real Housewives stars slept with actor Gerard Butler. Seems Brandi Glanville claimed it before,
but Gerry wasn’t admitting to anything. This week, apparently having seen photos of Ms. Glanville, he admitted the two had hooked up, but he’d forgotten her name.

Glanville (the ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian, now married to Leeann Rimes, just to fill you in) is  excited that she’s been vindicated in this matter. Oh, Ms. Glanville, I am SO happy for you. And yes, I am being sarcastic.

First of all,  I wouldn’t be all that proud of trumpeting the fact of having slept with some guy who found it such a forgettable experience he couldn’t remember exactly who I was, even if he was some hottie Scots actor. Then again, I am guessing the reason she felt the need to do so in the first place was to boost her own self-esteem (“Look! I bagged a Hottie Scottie even if he doesn’t have any idea who I actually am!”) and brag about shagging an A-lister.

Secondly, I hope to never see or hear this kind of story about Richard Armitage as his star continues to rise.

And I don’t think I will.

Not that I don’t recognize he’s a grown man who lost his virginity a long time ago. He might be one who even possibly enjoys the occasonal casual “hook-up.” We don’t really know, do we? We can only surmise.

But  I am convinced RA is not a man who kisses (or much of anything else) and tells. There’s no evidence of that thus far, at least.  Nor do I think he is attracted to the sort of woman who is likely to go blathering all over the internet about such a tryst, either. Let me say I think he’s just a little–or a lot–classier than that.

I am thankful that Richard Armitage is a class act and a true gentleman.  But then again, that’s one of the reasons we admire him so much, right? Not just your bog-standard celeb.  Not intending to bash Mr. Butler, who is a talented and charming guy, but this is the kind of tabloid fodder behavior of which I grow weary.  And really, Gerry–one of the Real (Fake-*Ass) Housewives? Please.

Sometimes, it’s really nice and refreshing not to have everything about a well-known individual’s personal life splashed out for everyone to see. There really IS such a thing as too much information.  A little mystery can go a very, very long way.
