Close2TheEdge: I like Penn. I really do. But, that was sad. It's tragic to know that he is not that much different from Bristol Palin. Both are attention whore "celebrities." The difference is that Bristol is sincerely, genuinely vacuous, while Penn tries to pretend that he is above it all.
Dwight_Yeast: LonMead: "Penn Jillette's secrets of "Celebrity Apprentice": Donald Trump is a whackjob"And...?Amusingly enough, Penn Jillette is also a complete wackjob.
omeganuepsilon: He's not as much of a magician as a comedian, and the time on the BS show, a comedian more like George Carlin than Jeff Dunham.
Mad Scientist: Didn't Trump's Vegas steakhouse get closed down this past weekend for health law violations?Just asking questions.../I agree with Jillette about reality shows being a sign that the end is near for TV.//If you watch a reality show, kill yourself.
rickythepenguin: Adam Carolla pretty well dissected the show after he got booted. not as in how bad it was / "i got kicked off, here's sour grapes", but just how manufactured and "cooked" it was. (i know, news flash).like he mentioned how on some presentation for the contest, he did like, 10 minutes of standup on some car, and the audience loved it. Arsenio and Jillette both agreed. But, the way it was cut, they made it look like the audience wasn't laughing, and Pauly apparently said something like, "get off the mic" and they cut to commercial. so Adam's thing is like, "in real life, I killed, the room was exploding with laughter, but they chopped it up into a 30 second clip that was completely manipulated to tell a false narrative."so who cares.
snowshovel: As far as the whole complaint of "he's hates the shows, but he'll still go on them," unless you are someone like Tom Hanks, if you are a Hollywood performer, the mantra in Hollywood is "there are no bad paying jobs," and as long as it fits in your schedule, you do it.
PirateKing: I've always liked Penn. He's usually the first to admit that he's a pompous prick.
keithgabryelski: sweet jesus that was a painful read -- I got to his complaints about Clay Aiken calling him condescending and had to quit
