Ruby Redeems Herself

Last spring, Ruby confessed to us her shocking, closeted affection for Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock,” on her list of 5 Freebie Hook-Ups. The rest of the bar raised their eyebrows but remained polite while we were all secretly thinking, Really?! The fake-wrestler guy? Well, all-righty then! Who knew.

But, I’m here to say that this evening, I watched the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, and Ruby is, actually, quite Smartini. The Rock was hot! And, it was the funniest overall episode of SNL since Justin Timberlake hosted last year—no easy feat. I’m totally impressed. Please enjoy the following HOTNESS skits below. You won't be sorry.

1. May I say that I did call the play on “The Rock” and “Barack” prior to the episode. Regardless of your political persuasion, this one is very funny:

2. Random, but still relatable (so key to the skit turning out well), and smartly put together. Also, I cannot get over Dwayne Johnson’s “dancing,” it’s hilarious.

So, what do you think, ladies? The Rock: Hot?? Or are Ruby and I going to have to fight it out amongst ourselves. Bar brawl!

5 tips left at the bar:

I didn't get the Tarzan talk in the first one, but I loved the Hawaiian one - hilarious! We're definitely busting out that "dance" when we go out on our retreat!
Great post. I didn't know his hotness was in question, I just found it interesting he made RUBY's list, that was all.

He was supposed to be the Incredible Hulk, I think.

Hmmm, for me his hotness was in question, but I have different tastes, usually. Leaner muscles, for one, rather than huuuuuge, veiny muscles. :) And obviously smarts and a sense of humor are key, which ultimately is what changes my mind about Mr. Johnson.

Johnson, hee. Sorry. Not quite awake.

I can't believe you just posted this! My friend "Red" posted his monologue on her blog yesterday, because she, like Ruby, has the super-hots for The Rock. I am, however, in line with your thinking, Pen. To wit, my comment on her blog, verbatim:

"See, I was thinking he was looking hotter now that he wasn't so beefy. Then he took his shirt off and it totally turned me off. The chair dance was awesome, though. What is wrong with me? Am I only attracted to gay, heroin addicts?"

You can see the monologue at the link below, which I think had an awesome "dance" as well. And it's funny they did an Obama skit b/c I think his voice sounded a lot like Barack's in the opening!

Great minds think alike! Oh, the monologue was pretty good, thanks for mentioning it! I thought Ruby would get a kick out of that one especially. With his... scanty ensemble.

GIRLS! You have just made my day with all of the Rock talk!

For the record, I still think DJ is hot and think that Andria is a genius for agreeing with me. And now Pen too! And Red!

Not for the record, I left a comment at Red's blog that I might potentially want to lick that big tattoo on his chest. But don't repeat that.
