A Terrible Dinner Party

DaveS and I sometimes ask each other to come up with what we think would be a terrible group of people to have to be at a dinner party with.  Kind of a self-flagellation sort of exercise.

Watching the Oscars last night, I came up with a howlingly horrific Hollywood version of a downer way to spend an evening.  Dinner for four:  Me, Marly Matlin, Celine Dion, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Who would be the three Hollywood celebrities you'd least like to spend an evening with at a dinner party?

Does Baba Wawa count? If so... me, Baba, Jamie Foxx, and Jennifer Hudson. Or maybe me, Gerard Depardieu... wait, you said just Hollywood celebrities, not just Oscar noms/winners. In that case... me, Tom Cruise, 50 Cent, aaaand... hmm... Baba Wawa. There's so many to pick from, but she's still right up there.

me, roberto benigni, robin williams, and meg ryan.

Me, Paris Hilton, Tanya Kim and Seamus o'Regan (aka Finnegan O'Toole). These may not qualify since they are only famous for being around famous people. If the people have to be famous for doing something then I'll substitute Britney Spears, Bill O'Reilly and Jennifer Lopez.

No strict rules here, stan. You can have your awful party with whomever you want. Famous or beside famous.

Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck, Ben Mulroney.

Brent Butt
Andrew Lloyd Webber
Stockwell Day
Rosie O'donnell
Tipper Gore
I would hastily ask if anyone of them could lend me 60000 dollars. then I'd excuse myself with no explenation (whether they lent me the cash or not) and crawl out a window.

Jada Pinkett-Smith. Wow. She never would have crossed my mind, but that would definitely be complete and utter hell.
So her of course, but to pick three others besides.
Tyra Banks
Frankie Muniz
Danny Bonaduce

I'm curious why Brent Butt made your list. Is it a gut reaction or is there a specific reason?

graham said...

Oh... I'm sure he's a good guy and all. he walked out of my show after 5 minutes so I assume he's was a jerk.
You're not him are you?

dylan said...

I can think of topics of conversation for a lot of the people listed already. And for a truly horrible dinner party you really need animosity.
Dinner Party Hell would be: Paris Hilton, Ashlee Simpson, Nicole Ritchie, and Tara Reid.
These four vapid girls are so useless that I could not see spending 5 minutes with them.

Graham, No I'm not Brent Butt (I thought his real name is Brett but the character on Corner Gas is Brent but I could be wrong) but I've liked his stand up for quite a while. He just never struck me as someone who could inspire hate. Ever hear his bit about wearing lime green sweat pants to a biker bar?
