Saturday 26th July


Some persons in show business have the sense to know when they're bottom-feeders or also-rans in the industry. Sadly, most don't. Anyone who ever appeared in a sitcom with Tony Danza, for instance, and who now finds him or herself portraying Annie Oakley in a dinner theater in Des Moines, or can be seen throwing someone under the bus on E!'s True Hollywood Story, and generally seems to be agonizingly unaware that they could possibly be treading on life's banana skins - that's who I'm talking about. So it's refreshing, in a way, to come across one Tom Bergeron, a level-8 television personality and host of both Hollywood Squares and America's Funniest Home Videos as he accepts congratulations on being chosen as this year's host of the Miss America Pageant: "I referee a Tic-Tac-Toe game and I introduce clips of people hitting themselves in the (groin). This will help my career, if anything," he said. A man of wit and style, I daresay. His avid fans will doubtless wonder, as they lick the smell off their wrists where the watchband has begun to rot this summer, what word was tactfully changed to "groin."
