A LEGEND VERSUS A TALENTLESS MAN WHORE.

Well this sucks! Ricardo Montalbán is dead. I suppose it's okay though, because he at least lived a terrific long life. The media isn't saying it, but his one and only lovely wife Georgiana Young died back in 2007, and my guess is this left Ricardo heartbroken, so he had to go and join his one true love. They were married for 63 years for Christ's sake! That is a hell of a long time, and terribly hard on the grieving spouse left behind. A wonderful classy charismatic man, with the most original voice and a true role model for Latinos everywhere! Ricardo would've been born in Spain, but his Spanish parents had a business in Mexico City, so Ricardo's mom ended up plopping him out in Mexico. When he was young, he came to Hollywood and attended Fairfax High School, quickly became proficient in English, and got into showbiz, which used to be (and sometimes still is) very anti-Latino. They wanted him to change his original name to Ricky Martin! AHAHAHAHA! Ricardo refused, and kept his lovely romantic birth name. More on this now deceased legend here, in this awesome interview he gave just a few years ago.

Of course, why does one even need to be as talented as Ricardo was back in the day when nowadays you can get away with just being good-looking and being born into the right rich family! Yes, reality shows have destroyed Ame
rican brain cells, and you can now be famous like Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian simply for looking good/being rich and contributing absolutely nothing to our society! Ain't that a kick in tha head?! The male version of being untalented these days would have to be Brody Jenner, the son of the famous Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner. Yeah, this guy was on Howard Stern the other day and he's living the good life screwing women left and right, driving around in expensive cars, and getting paid to make appearances in clubs! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! What an unjust and unfair world this is right? Personally, I think Brody is kind of a hottie, but a vapid waste of space at the same time. He was on The Hills or something which brought him his current "fame" and now he's hosting some dumbass show called Bromance, about how straight dudes can be close and love one another without ever being gay/having sex with each other.

I'll stop it right here, before I lose any more of my valuable neurons talking about all this nonsense. Enjoy the weekend okay?

Not one of today's celebutards can hold a candle to Ricardo Montalban.

Ricardo gives me the creeps. His heavy handed judgments and moralistic pronouncements on "fantasy bile-land" would have you jumping out of the bathhouses with your head hung low. lmao!

Can anyone tell me how big his VERGA was?!??! TIA.

It seems that Ricardo had a wonderful life. To be able to share your journey with another person for 63 years is nothing short of amazing.

As far as Brody Jenner...he is REALLY good looking and that is all I know about him. I never saw him do anything besides some verizon commerical so I'll take your word on it that he is a no talent hack.

Hope you are feeling more upbeat these day. I am bummed that you decided not to go with teaching but something will come along that sparks a fire in you.

I always like Ricardo M, he was so talented and diverse.

I can't think of Ricardo without picturing the scene in the beginning of the Fantasy Island show and hearing "zeee plane... zeee plane...." good times.

After 63 years together it must have been a half life for him after she was gone. I can only speculate, but I would think that kind of void would be too big to get over.

Brody Jenner does have a killer smile......
