What Might Have Been: A Look Back at the 2005 That Wasn’t

posted by kris rasmussen

Just in time to start the new year off with a laugh, I stumbled across a funny article from the Associated Press. The writer’s premise was that the major moments in pop culture for 2005 could all be traced back to one significant event: Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah’s couch. If that one event had not happened, we would have had a completely different year of entertainment–no Paris Hilton engagement, no Russell Crowe arrest, etc. It’s a complicated theory, so I won’t go into the details, but in the spirit of that idea, I thought it would be fun if I came up with my own list of what could have or should have happened in entertainment in 2005 and how the year might have been different. I invite my fellow bloggers, and all our readers, to offer their own lists.

Instead of “Insider” host Pat O’Brien being interviewed post-rehab by Dr. Phil, he’s interviewed by the Reverend Billy Graham and has a profound religious conversion experience. “The Insider” promptly changes its format to replicate “The 700 Club.”

Jude Law actually attended a Promise Keeper conference in an effort to convince fiance Sienna Miller to reconcile after his, um, indescretion. However, Sienna Miller read my fellow Idol Chatterer Donna Frietas’s book “Becoming a Goddess of Inner Poise” and had a revelation–she doesn’t need Jude Law for anything.

Hoping to demonstrate the need for religious understanding and tolerance, Donald Trump created yet another reality show where people of various religious faiths compete against each other in a variety of tasks to see who can recruit the most converts to their religion and become the next… “Apostle.”

In an effort to shut up “D List” star Kathy Griffin, numerous movie stars such as Nicole Kidman and Brad Pitt got together and unanimously voted to promote Griffin to the ”A List,” causing Griffin’s Bravo series to be cancelled and her career to disappear.

Feel free to add: Ashlee Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Jen and Ben Part 2, and many others are out there….
