Earlier this week, it was rumored that Channing Tatum would be selected by People magazine this year for its coveted (or cursed? Who cares!) Sexiest Man Alive issue. I’m sure we are all on the edge of our seats waiting to find out if these rumors are true. Gahhhh! Your mom won’t stop calling you, like, “Is there any news? I tried emailing Bryant Gumbel but I don’t know how to program the computer!” The fact of the matter, though, is that Channing Tatum is probably having a pretty good day regardless of whether he is selected as People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012. I mean, who knows how he is actually doing on Thursday, November 8th, but I just mean overall: guy is doing OK. This has been his year! He was in a bunch of movies, although that’s been going on for awhile, but I feel like his movies this year were the ones that finally made everyone respect him. As my friend Leah recently said after I had explained that I realized that it turns out that Channing Tatum is actually pretty good, “Ugh, every guy I know has some story about how they realized that it turns out that Channing Tatum is actually pretty good.” It’s kind of true though! We all made fun of him in 2011, and we all love him in 2012. That’s showbuzzness. (Also motherfucker won a PEABODY AWARD. What is even going on anymore?!) But hey, how are YOU doing? It’s been kind of a big week. The northeast is still recovering from hurricane Sandy, only to be hit by a pretty serious snowstorm. Also Obama. I mean, did you guys even buy your Bond tickets yet?! What is going on? How ARE you today?
