RALPHIE REPORT: damon, drescher, dbags speidi…

Looks like the Bourne series will become a tetra logy.

Maybe you read about it this week on Perezhilton.com – but you heard about it first on The Ralphie Radio Show almost three weeks ago, when I exclusively interviewed actor Matt Damon.

“It looks like they’re gonna start writing a script on (Bourne 4),” said Damon. “We’ll shoot it in a couple years… we still have a few years to wait on it.”

The Boston-born star called in to the show on behalf of Senator Barack Obama. Damon, along with fellow actor and buddy Ben Affleck, were avid supporters of the Presidential Candidate from Chicago. The Academy-Award winner voiced a number of concerns about the current state of our country – almost none as adamantly as his gripe with our current education system and its emphasis on standardized testing.

“I personally, was a terrible test taker,” he admits. “But I got in to Harvard because when I looked at my first SAT scores, I went to one of these Stanley Kaplan courses and learned how to take a test better.”

Damon argues that we can’t base the funding of our education programs on standardized scores, because students will only learn how to take tests, and not the material they should be tested on.

I feel like somewhere here, there’s a prequel to the Ocean’s series. Couldn’t you see the gang meeting up in college and figuring out a way to ace some type of big exam, without studying what will be on it?

FRAN DRESCHER DOES FACEBOOK, THE RALPHIE RADIO SHOW

I wrote on Fran Drescher’s Facebook wall last week.

Really, I’m not one to brag about celebrity friends – but The Nanny?! Just too good to pass up.

Anyways, I shared on Fran’s wall a link to our interview from earlier this month on The Ralphie Radio Show. Appropriate that I spoke with her, since just weeks earlier she appeared on my favorite TV series.

“A lot of people watch that show, it’s awesome,” Drescher said of Entourage – which just wrapped up Season 5 on Sunday.

Besides HBO cameos, the actress keeps busy these days as a U.S. ambassador and as a founder of the organization, “Cancer Schmancer.”

Atleast, according to Fran’s Facebook status, updated not too long ago.

SPEIDI ELOPES

Congrats to newlyweds Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag – who eloped over the weekend in Mexico. The “reality TV stars” went hush-hush and low-key with the ceremony. Of course, neither forgot to contact US Weekly, who obtained the official first photographs and will run them as the cover story for the next issue to hit newsstands.

Does anyone else hope the same fate of other MTV couples awaits these two (i.e. Nick/Jessica, Carmen/Dave, Travis/Shanna)?
