There's been a lot of talk about Anthony Weiner lately. Between the sexting, his wife Huma Abedin, and the ridiculousness that is Carlos Danger, where does one begin? Well, I can't answer that, but I can direct your attention to someone who has some pretty good advice for Señor Danger. That person is Kristin Chenoweth.
One of Chenoweth's biggest roles was Glinda in the musical Wicked. And one of her most popular songs from that show was aptly titled "Popular." Tuesday night Chenoweth made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where she sang "Popular," but this time the words were a bit different. Rather than addressing a girl who didn't fit in with the cool kids, the new lyrics give Weiner a few tips on how to stop being Carlos Danger.
Basically, the song tells Weiner to stop putting a camera down his pants and act like grown man instead of a 17-year-old. There's some advice for Abedin in the song as well. But the main point is really that Carlos Danger needs to go away and never come back. Also there are some "la la's" in there to make everyone feel happy and encouraging.
Listen to Kristin, Weiner. Chenoweth is trying to help here. Let's hope he gets the idea and learns how to become "the right kind of popular."

The Good Wife star Julianna Margulies has described the Anthony Weiner sex scandal as "the gift that just keeps on giving" as she is convinced the politician's story will influence the next series of her TV show. The former E.R. regular plays a lawyer whose politician husband is jailed amid a sex and corruption scandal, and the actress admits she is fascinated by the case of New York City mayoral candidate Weiner.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 amid a row over saucy pictures, during which he was forced to admit he had "exchanged messages and photos of an explicit nature" with a number of women over the years, and his political comeback was dealt another blow last week (ends28Jul13) when more X-rated snaps leaked online.
Margulies admits she has been paying close attention to Weiner's headline-grabbing story, and insists she can see it influencing her TV series.
She tells E! Online, "I would never want to benefit from someone else's pain but I have been emailing (our producers) for two weeks now. It is the gift that just keeps on giving. It is shocking that in our fifth season, this show is more relevant than ever."
However, Margulies admits she feels for Weiner's wife Huma Abedin, adding, "I feel like everyone is jumping to conclusions with Weiner's wife Huma. We don't know what's happening behind closed doors. If I have learned one thing from this character it is, 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' You're not in her shoes. Huma has a one-year-old baby (sic). We don't know what her daily life is like. And we don't know what he's saying to her.
"We see him how he wants us to see him as a politician... But I don't know if he goes home at night and gets down on his knees and says, 'Help me deal with this problem.' It benefits our show, the writers just happen to tap into that on this show and I get to play her."
Asked whether the story will be reflected in upcoming plot lines, she adds, "I can't imagine it not."
Embattled American politician Anthony Weiner, who resigned from his position as a New York congressman after a sex scandal earlier this year (11), is a first-time father. His wife, Huma Abedin, gave birth to son Jordan Zane Weiner on Wednesday (21Dec11).
Kim Kardashian plans to sue In Touch Magazine, for saying that she's already cheated on her fiance, Kris Humphries. She wrote a long post on her blog about how she never met the guy In Touch claims she's been sleeping with, and that she's never sent him any text messages, and that she doesn't even know him. She said, "This guy should be ashamed of himself. Calling up a magazine and making up an entirely fake story just to get attention!?!?! It's just shameful and this guy should feel ashamed and humiliated....I've said it before and I'll say it again...don't believe everything you read." - Kim Kardashian
Sales of Lady Gaga's album, Born This Way, have taken a nosedive. It has dropped 84% since it debuted and sold 1.1 million copies, as it only sold 174,000 copies this week. However, Rolling Stone still puts the album in the top spot on Billboard charts. Um, I kinda think this is because everyone already owns it and the only people who don't are Sky Captains and the World of Tomorrow. - Celebrity Cafe
Anthony Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, is reportedly pregnant. Gawker says that Weiner has been telling associates that Abedin is about three months into her pregnancy, and a source indicated the couple had been trying to conceive. Additionally, they have put their two-bedroom apartment in Queens up for sale -- which actually shows that Weiner is even MORE of a multitasker than we thought he was when we learned he was just sexting people. Think about how hard it is to sext without anyone knowing about it, while you're trying to get your wife pregnant, WHILE YOU'RE PUTTING YOUR HOUSE UP FOR SALE. I'm sorry, but this guy is working really hard. Recognize. - Gawker
