Sunday Gossip!

We may not have cricket but DC does have a soccer (football) team DC UNITED - even if last season saw them fail pretty spectacularly. Our coach was fired midway through 2010 for being so terrible and assistant coach (and former player Ben Olsen) was bumped up into the job.

So now we've got a new coach and a mostly all-new team... and at the opening match last night, we whupped the Columbus Crew 3-1!





My sister and I are most definitely Team Ben Olsen!


Congrats, guys! And especially to comeback kid
Charlie Davies, who scored two of them!

But... now to the stuff you care about!

* Note to programming directors of Indian film festivals:
This is how you do it! There should be room for both films like I Am and films like Dabangg.

* Catch up on what's happening in the
Asian film markets.

* Ram Gopal Varma's
Dongala Mata is apparently not that great. It's unsurprising considering that one of the USPs was the short shooting time - perhaps they could have used one of those days to punch up the script. If the film is a bust, then the reviews, at least, gave us this gem of a statement:

Charmmee has been shown in various angles in the film but most of the shots captured in still camera focus on her rear.

Oh, Ram Gopal Varma, you'll never change...

* Bips thinks fans only want to see her in
tough girl roles, which may have the ring of truth about it. So, instead of all this sequel nonsense, why not make a film about Bipasha's police lady character from Dhoom 2!

* Find out about choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza, whose
FALTU is opening soon.

* Prakash Raaj's brother is making his debut...
as a villain.

* John Abraham gives a lovely and enlightened response to being quizzed on his status as an
actor loved by gay men. That link isn't working - try this one.

* Salman Khan is relocating to Film City for the shooting of
Bodyguard.

The link for the John story is broken.

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
