Ugh!: Actors, Hosts, and TV Personalities You Just Can't Stand

Recommended Posts

I saw Pete Davidson live when he was touring with John Mulaney. His material was lame & his energy was awful. They had him perform before John which was smart because I would have left a minute into Petes set. John on the other hand was once again brilliant and super charming. I don't hate him but I don't find him funny either.

Terry Crews is going to Terry Crews.  With him and J.K. Rowling, is this some kind of "making things worse" week?  It's going to be hard for me to separate him from his character now, like I'd been able to in the past when he has done things that annoyed me.

Nope. He showed his true colors. Nobody is going to listen to a out of touch celebrity who lives in a gated community and wears rose-tinted glasses.

I've only seen Pete Davidson in some SNL sketches, and I'm baffled by his popularity. He's not funny. His line deliveries aren't funny, he doesn't do any physical comedy, he doesn't even seem to have good comic timing. And to top it off, he looks skeevy and like he badly needs a wash. Why is he famous? Does he write amazingly funny material that he just can't perform?

I guess he has enough talent to land a job at SNL, but he just existed there for years.  It wasn't until he started dating Ariana Grande and her subsequent comments that made him famous.  It was a couple of years ago, but the gist of it is he is great in bed.

Great article (as always) by Michael Harriot Take off Your Mask, Terry Crews.

Crews’ Twitter account is a smorgasbord of fuckshit displaying his repeated attempts at cleaning the collective Caucasian Doc Martens using only his tongue.

Chevy Chase. I never found him funny on SNL and reading that Live from New York book about how horrible he was to the various casts when he came back to host all those times, has only validated that opinion. 

Oh, and that infamous fistfight he had with Bill Murray when he first returned? In his version he tried to spin it that John Belushi somehow was responsible because he thinks (key term: thinks, no proof) that John spread rumors about him. As if that were the only reason, and not the fact that Chevy ditched them after one year and probably had his fair share of acting like a douchebag around them! Noooo, just lay suspicion at the guy whose been dead for thirty years.

I remember listening to the episode commentary for the first 3 seasons of Community, and the rest of the cast plus Dan Harmon had a difficult time trying to say positive things about Chevy.  Reading between the lines, it sounds like he was a horror on set always suggesting to play Pierce like Clark Griswold and just not following direction.

I imagine Chevy Chase is like his character Pierce Hawthorne in Community, so basically a jerk on his best day and generally an asshole.

I always thought so too.  In the early seasons, Pierce was just written as a clueless out of touch old rich white guy.  But then as time went Pierce became cruel in addition to all that.  There are some episode where it was really hard to watch him (the recently pulled 'blackface' Dungeons and Dragons episode is one of them).  I head-wanked that Pierce's growing ass-holishness on screen mirrored Chevy's ass-holishness behind the scenes and that Pierce's character arc was Dan Harmon's low key way of showing the audience what Chevy ws really like.

I felt a bit vindicated when I read an interview with Donald Glover in The New Yorker.  This snippet is about Chevy on community:

Quote

Chevy Chase, one of Glover’s co-stars, often tried to disrupt his scenes and made racial cracks between takes. (“People think you’re funnier because you’re black.”) Harmon said, “Chevy was the first to realize how immensely gifted Donald was, and the way he expressed his jealousy was to try to throw Donald off. I remember apologizing to Donald after a particularly rough night of Chevy’s non-P.C. verbiage, and Donald said, ‘I don’t even worry about it.’ ” Glover told me, “I just saw Chevy as fighting time—a true artist has to be O.K. with his reign being over. I can’t help him if he’s thrashing in the water. But I know there’s a human in there somewhere—he’s almost too human.”

He and Beverly d'Angelo are good friends, but, yeah, it seems like most people who work with him don't care for him.  Which is unsurprising, since he's a jerk in interviews; imagine how much worse he is in private if that's how he behaves in public.

I read that SNL book last year, and my two biggest takeaways is everyone who works on the show must have daddy issues, which leads to some weird dynamics with Lorne Michaels, and Chevy Chase sounds like one of the biggest assholes in show business, even when he was just starting out. Like, I don't remember one likable anecdote about him at all.

Another part that stood out was when he and Lorne attended Michael 'O Donahue's funeral and Buck Henry of all people called them out for being there because "they knew full well what Michael thought of them."

Michael supposedly said when National Lampoon founder Doug Kenney died that it was a shame Doug wasn't holding hands with Chevy when he fell off that cliff. (Chevy had been with Doug in Hawaii doing blow with him a few days before).

It's funny in retrospect, how Mr. Chase seemed to instantly believe himself the SNL breakout star and leader of the pack who eagerly did a 'so long suckers' deal just one year after the show's inception- only to find out that the public didn't consider him a top tier movie comedian (despite Goldie Hawn's best efforts to try to shore him up as a romantic rom-com lead in Foul Play)  AND his fellow cast seemed to be relieved at his departure rather than believing the show would imminently collapse without his 'leadership'.

OK, I probably should have posted this before the individual's passing but what wasn't done wasn't done. Anyway, I know this will likely be unpopular (and for those who like, love, adore, etc. this individual , you are more than welcome to re-read the kudos others gave  on the In Memorium: Celebrity Deaths thread over the past week). To each one's own.

 

HOWEVER; I COULD NOT STAND the late Regis Philbin. IMO, he was a  hammy, smarmy, smug  loudmouth, self-important bore! I mean, wasn't ONE Bob Hope already one too many? Among other things that annoyed me was his and his fellow loudmouth cohost Mrs. Gifford always referring to their Executive Producer like he was  a nothing flunky by calling him 'Gellman' NEVER by his first name or MR. Gelman- despite the fact that the continuing existence of their annoying show completely depended on that individual (and, no I didn't get ANY sense of respect or love behind that) ! I always thought if they could scream and yell at him like he was nothing, they likely were even RUDER to the rest of that crew! Oh, and another bit of Mr. Philbin's schtick was to have showing photos of  his head put on other folks' bodies when standing next to famous people like Ted Baxter did with his dressing room photos. I mean, this might have been worth a feeble chuckle ONCE but he kept doing it and thinking it was the most clever and adorable thing ever! It wasn't!  I avoided that Live show as much as possible during Mr. Philbin's tenure and have no regrets doing so. Oh, and I was SO happy when he retired because that meant that he wouldn't be on that show and so many other shows and commercials!

Pick any of them.  Wink Martindale.  Jack Barry.  Bob Eubanks on The Newlywed Game.  Richard Dawswon on Family Feud.  Peter Tomarken on Press your Luck.  Of course Bob Barker.  Gene Rayburn on Match Game. 

I'm gonna remove Richard Dawson from this list.  His kissing all the female contestants was creepy and borderline abusive.  He was in a position of power and there's nothing they could do to prevent his perhaps unwanted attention.

I have to wonder what percentage of Family Feud female contestants loathed the thought of the late Mr. Dawson kissing them and ONLY agreed to go on the show with the others so that  their family to reap the cash. 

P.S. He would claim that the reason he did NOT kiss the contestants in his revival of the show was that his young daughter said she didn't want to see him kissing any woman besides her mother. If that's true, that's actually a noble reason, IMO.

I remember him from Match Game where all the women seemed to want to kiss him. If he gave the right answer they'd run over. One even ran and kissed him when one of the others gave the right answer. It was a different time.

I've seen at least a couple of women turn their head when he was going in for a kiss while watching old episodes of his original run of hosting Family Feud on Buzzr. Those few times his kisses landed on cheeks. At least he, the show or both knew to keep his lips away from the underage ladies who appeared on the show as contestants with their families.

I know, right. I feel so nostalgic for the days when literally all I knew about Laurence Fox was that he was married to Billie Piper and a minor member of the Fox acting dynasty. This heel-turn into public meltdown seems so abrupt and over-the-top. I wonder where it's all coming from and what triggered it, what he hopes to accomplish by being so publicly awful. I mean, I have to assume these opinions were always there (in which case, I've lost a bit of respect for Billie, for staying married to him for so long) but it is only within the last 12 months or so that he has been ranting like this so publicly. Does he actually believe he will win support, fans, and work like this? Does he genuinely believe the 'political party' he is trying to launch stands any chance of success? Does he feel emboldened by, erm, certain right wing governments that I shan't detail here because politics - but do they make him feel like he is courting majority opinion by taking this stance? He's an elitist public schoolboy from a wealthy family, so I can believe that his worldview is that narrow, but then again as an actor, you'd think he'd have spent enough of his life in more liberal circles to be more open-minded. It just seems such a pointless downward spiral that can only damage his reputation and career when literally all he had to do was stay quiet and no one would have known he harboured such repugnant views, but maybe he doesn't care. Urgh.

If someone pushes you, how much can you take before you push back? All those other people are wrong! He's sick of all these people and their incorrect views and has to lash out.

I just discovered Inspector Lewis during quarantine and absolutely love it.  While I think Fox's political views are horrendous and think he seemed like an asshole based on other things I've read about him before I knew what his political views were, the appeal of that show to me is Lewis/Hobson, so Fox won't keep me from watching the show.  I'd be okay if they wanted to do a reunion special without Hathaway.

It's one thing to say ' I disagree with this  because. .' but going so far as to call   anyone who disagrees with one's POV a vile and slanderous term which (  Mr. Fox did)? IMO, that's going WAY too far.

Well, I never watched the show and never had any interest in it so I can't begin to boycott it.

Late to the Chevy Chase discussion but as a big Community fan, its pretty well known he was just an a**hole not only as a character but also as a person to most people on the show. 

I'm old enough to know him from his 1980s and SNL days as well and he was hilarious in movies like Vacation and Fletch.  But personally its no secret he is a not well liked in Hollywood.

Eh, Dre sells headphones now and Snoop Dogg is starring in a Just Eat advert, over here in the UK. The gangsta rappers of the 90s went corporate a long time ago. It makes you wonder what Tupac and Biggie would be doing now, if they'd lived.

Meanwhile, the woke performers are all the teen idols and former teen idols - Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, this Yungblud chap and others. And, as privileged as they might be, I trust them to be far more in tune with the culture they represent.

Pre Lois & Clark (and even before the 90210 episodes where he played a nice guy Brenda met in France), Dean Cain guest-starred on A Different World as a cocky, racist student from another college.  There was a fight, and Dwayne Wayne punched him in the face several times.

I'd go into more detail but I'm trying to avoid anything political here. So, unless he does a MAJOR and sincere mea culpa, no more clicks or views of ANYthing he does from this point on from me!

I missed out on his heyday and didn't follow his career or anything, so I'd had no opinion on him one way or another in the past. 

But yeah, this news definitely puts him into the "awful" category, for sure. That is truly shitty as hell. For so many reasons. I seem to recall he also had a domestic violence thing recently, too, though, which would make this not all that surprising as a result.

Let the record show that after it was revealed that   others confirmed that the performer Rick Shroeder evidently did something more appalling in recent days than the   allegations of domestic violence against a onetime companion in 2019, I was DONE with him. I'll let others draw their own conclusions as to what the more recent action may have been.
