Let’s Get Political

Governor Deval Patrick and Ayla Brown.ayla

If you’ve been following the news, or you’re from the great state of Massachusetts, you’ve heard these names a lot recently.  Coincidentally, both the Governor of the state and the daughter of newly-elected Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, are both chatting with BlogTalkRadio hosts on the very same day.

Ayla Brown first made headlines a few years back as a talented contestant on American Idol.  The statuesque Boston College basketball player survived the first two rounds before being dismissed.  Now, she’s been thrust back into the spotlight as the daughter of Senator Scott Brown, who recently won the late Ted Kennedy’s coveted and long-held senate seat, shifting the political tide in the Republican direction.

And Ayla was also singled out by her father during his acceptance speech, when he declared his two daughters’ dating status, “Just in case anyone who’s watching throughout the country, yes they’re both available.”  Is that true? Ayla herself joins Dr. Blogstein tonight to discuss the mortifying event and what she’s looking forward to as a devalSenator’s daughter.

Governor Deval Patrick sympathizes with the stress of being in the spotlight, and he discusses his job and much more with Left Ahead, a show about Massachusetts politics with a progressive viewpoint.  Governor Patrick discusses the state of the Obama administration, the potential he sees for achieving his progressive goals in the state, and how he’s coping with funding issues and the strains of serving in a difficult economic period.

Don’t miss the chance to hear these two political insiders today on BlogTalkRadio.

Oh, Snaps! Pauly Hangs with ‘American Idol’ Finalist Adam Lambert

There’s no question as to which American Idol finalist our Fruit Salad hosts will be rooting for tonight when the mega-hit reality series picks its Season Eight winner: Kris Allen or Adam Lambert.

Hands down, it’s the flamboyant Adam that Pauly’s got his money on.

“Adam is an unbelievable talent,” Pauly tells us. “I don’t think we’ve ever seen someone of his caliber in our generation. He’s reminiscent of David Bowie, Freddy Mercury and Steve Perry all rolled into one hot package.”

Meanwhile, hot new boy band Varsity Fanclub tells us they, too, have their fingers crossed for Adam – and that they’ve chilled with his beau.

“We hung out with him a couple of weeks ago out here in L.A.  So we gotta choose Adam,” VFC frontman David Brandt tells WZAP Radio host Zachary Sang.

“Did you meet his boyfriend?” asks the incorrigible Zach.

“We definitely saw him. We were at the ‘Do, which is an awesome club. And they were definitely hangin’ out in the corner… in a booth.”

The live season finale of American Idol gets under way tonight at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
