Another week of moments that made us say, “Wait what?” Let’s get started.
Kylie Jenner is on the path to Oprah-level richness… Wait what?
L: Listen, I’m a fan of the Kardashian’s. So my thoughts are “more power to them”! About an hour after this was announced it was also announced that Keeping Up was renewed for another 5 seasons with the KarJenner clan making an additional $150 million. Kinda hard for people to say they do not work at this point.
H: Kylie Jenner made $420 million in 18 months in makeup sales alone. That is… Impressive. I’m not necessarily surprised, but I’m shocked that people live this lifestyle. We all know the Kardashian/Jenner clan are loaded, but that is a lot of money in such a small amount of time… For a teenager. Kylie Jenner is on the road to billionaire status. I never saw this coming when I met this little girl on Keeping Up With the Kardashians all those years ago.
John Kelly turns the tables on the press.. Wait What?!
L: I watched this press conference by accident. The news was on in the background while I was busy with something else. However, when White House Chief of staff John Kelly began his press conference regarding the treatment of Gold Star families, I immediately stopped and watched. His speech hit home, but what really stood out to me was when he opened up the floor for questions. Mr. Kelly asked if there were any Gold Star families in the crowd or anyone who knew a Gold Star family and took questions from them first. Classy move.
H: I have no comment because I have no idea what this is referring to. “Gold star.” I’ll assume it’s something good? That’s all I got.
Uncle Jesse got engaged at Disney… Wait what?
L: If you are not following John Stamos on Instagram you are missing out. His now fiancé is obsessed with Disney and man, it is great! While it is unclear if they actually got engaged at Disney, I hope they did. It’s the most magical place on earth after all.
H: Wait what? Isn’t that how he got engaged to Aunt Becky? When he serenaded her? And Michelle got lost? And Steve was in Indiana Jones? I’m going to be honest, I don’t know much about this John Stamos story, but I have a plethora of information about Full House.
The Walking Dead’s total viewership on the season 8 premiere dropped 43 percent compared to last year… Wait what?
L: Pass. I am not a fan of zombies or their television shows unless they are the frozen undead with haunting blue eyes and ice spears. (You know what I mean? )
H: I’m a diehard fan of The Walking Dead. I’m totally invested in the characters and what happens to them. They are what keep me watching because, let’s be honest, the plot is a little slow. Negan is the ultimate villain and Rick, Michonne, Maggie, Carol, and Daryl are the dream team, so there is no excuse why this show has to move so slow. There are so many characters with their own personalities and struggles, there should never be a boring moment. I can’t help but compare it to Game of Thrones, a show that utilizes every character and every environment to the extreme. It makes for excellent tension and a show that you don’t want to look away from for a second, let alone miss an episode. Step your game up, Walking Dead. Your competition is fierce and people are beginning to notice.
The Matrix, Twilight, Heavyweights, Goosebumps, and How I Met Your Mother are leaving Netflix in November… Wait what?
L: Eh, no hearts are breaking over this news in my house. In fact I am super pumped to see Goosebumps go. My 7-year-old keeps trying to watch it even though it scares her, which effects all the sleep. So, see ya!
H: I’ve been wanting to rewatch How I Met Your Mother. I’ve been saying I’ve been wanting to for years. But every time I try, I remember how it ends and I get too annoyed to start it. So, maybe this is for the best. Farewell, you jerk of a show. (Heavyweights, you will actually be missed.)
Casper, Charlotte’s Web, Field of Dreams, Men in Black, Scary Movie, and The Pursuit of Happyness are arriving at Netflix in November… Wait what?
L: Aside from Scary Movie, the rest are pure cinematic gold. Looking forward to snuggling up for movie nights in the near future!
H: I love that Netflix switches things out and keeps their audience on their toes. As long as the Office never leaves, I’m satisfied.
Scientists are developing injections to stop you from overeating… Wait what?
L: Well it’s the future folks. Science. I’m into it. Still no commercial flying cars, but you can stop me from eating 50 tacos or whatever? I say yay for that. I cannot wait to see the side effects. You won’t over eat, but you will also lose the ability to taste all foods. Or you will stop over eating but there is an increased risk of death or blindness.
H: I really doubt anything could stop me from eating a full bag of chips in one sitting when I set my mind on it. But hey, it’s cute that they’re trying.
Well that’s it for this week. In an effort to keep this interesting we will be posting “Wait What Wednesday” as a biweekly blog series. Please share some of your own wait what?! moments down below in the comments section. See you back here on November 8th, and in the meantime, check out some of our other posts or find us on Instagram @Mysistersaidwhat.
