I am beginning to have more and more problems with Sam Brown... she's just getting annoying, a little too "white girl from Northeast", especially after watching the episode of Paris where she keeps pronouncing Arc de Triomph "trai-awnf" instead of "tree-awnf." Who cares about the $400/night hotel room you're staying in unless it is what defines the city? Maybe there is one that I'm not thinking of off the top of my mind right now but when was the last time you hear someone said that Hotel Bordeux is a must see in Paris (I don't know if there's really a Hotel Bordeux in Paris, I just made that up). She's got a new series now on China... I have a feeling I won't like it and I'll be incredibly offended.
Some other random thoughts:
- Claudia Bassols is really quite beautiful. I have a mad crush on her right now. She's just turned 30 so it's not like age wise it's out of the question. I think she's even more beautiful than Penelope Cruz.
- Who takes road trips in two Mercedes convertibles? When I think road trip I think like Honda Element or just something easy and comfy. I guess after all this is celebrities we're talking about. And it's so funny they always seem to be find a parking spot right in front of the restaurant or whatever destination they're going to. They never happens to me. Oh... the magic of television.
- My gosh! Gwyneth Paltrow knows Spanish? I had no idea! Not only is she a great actress, taken after her mother Blythe Danner, you know, the mom from Meet the Parents, good looking, married to Chris Martin from Coldplay, whom I assume have made and will make more gorgeous babies, she's really quite well traveled and knows her stuff.
If any producers out there are interested, I'd happy to pitch the idea of doing a road trip show through the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Australia and different regions of the U.S. That's at least maybe 6 seasons. All sponsored by Honda Element. Go ahead, whore it up. I don't care about product placement.
