I Just Checked Google News For My Name… I Was Featured In @theinquisitr, JWeekly, E!Online
Back when I was blogging like a mad[dened]-man, I was constantly getting press mentions, to the point it was such a pain-in-the-ass to keep track of them all, even though it was my favorite thing: “optimal bragging rights” and I was not taking advantage of it.
Today, I checked Google News to see what results came up for “Shabooty.” Here are some interesting ones… and also one throwback one from E!Online (way tf back in 2011), but it’s “new to me.” Hence blog-worthy. They even astutely called me a “hater.” Lolz.
Johnny Fratto, Howard Stern Regular And ‘Mafia Guru,’ Dies At 61 Of Lung Cancer [inquisitr.com]
Despite everything else he did, though, Fratto admitted in a 2009 interview with Shabooty that his one true passion (and main source of adrenaline) was calling into the Howard Stern show.
“Something really challenging for me… weird thing as a caller, when you’re dialing that number, you’re gonna say something and they’re gonna put you through to Howard — there’s an element I can’t explain to you. It’s like your first kiss with a girl – either gonna go along with it, or gonna get shut down. It’s adrenaline – I love it.”
That’s pretty cool that my 2009 interviews are still being quoted in 2015, 2016. Kudos to… me? Sorry, sometimes I have to compliment myself.
The next press tidbit is pretty funny. I was sorta mentioned in a J[ewish]Weekly — of Northern California news article. These two tweets best explain it:
Come on… how is that NOT hilarious? I’m sleep!
And last but not least, don’t forget when E!Online mentioned me after I got in a twitter fight with Kelly Osborne.
Jack Osbourne’s Going to Be a Dad! | E! Online
She missed out on this interview, but sister Kelly Osbourne is obviously rooting for Jack and his soon-to-be missus.
“@shabooty shut your f–king mouth!” Kelly tweeted in response to a hater who had written, “What an idiot, you’re not supposed to knock up your model girlfriend :P.”
Looks like Jack’s little one already has the fiercest aunt in town.
LOL at that actually being reported in the mainstream press. I may be a so-called hater, but I am not a racist and entitled ass-hat like Kelly Osbourne turned out to be. #NeverEverForget
I will actually take this moment to attempt to say something nice though. So I guess Jack Osborne’s wife has since plopped out two kids total and she still looks hot. Congrats! That’s why you SHOULD knock up your model girlfriend because at least you know she won’t [likely] hit the wall!
