Here's my Friday Five for June 22, 2012:

2. Fanboy Comics: They kindly syndicated my article on "Three Reasons To See Disney•Pixar's Brave". I warned you in the article and I am going to warn you again.....this movie is scary. Please think twice about taking a child under the age of four. My mommy friend took her three-year old today and her little girl was only happy when the movie was over. As for everyone else, go see the movie and check out my article here and a great Vulture article that Josh Sussman passed along to me that ranks their favorite Pixar films.
3. Swirly Garden: I was given this hand-painted glass as a part of The Artisan Group gift bag at the GBK Gifting Suites during Oscar season. I love how vibrant the flowers are on the glass and I am going to scoop up more for gifts during the holiday season. Check out Meena Kumar's work on her website where you can find exquisite hand-painted wine glasses, coffee mugs, and vases. Tell her KB sent you!
4. Ann Curry: I imagine this was a really hard week to be Ann and go on national TV each morning while everyone speculates about your firing and possible replacement. Even though the news was made public this week, the gossip has been going around for nearly six months in the entertainment industry. It reminds me of this insightful article Deborah Norville wrote for The Hollywood Reporter about women needing to support, not bash, each other in the industry. For even more perspective, read today's New York Times article on the whole debacle.
5. Rumor Fix: I love debunking Hollywood myths and I discovered a site that does just that with reality shows. For my Housewives fans, watch Alex McCord give inside scoop on how they film the Housewives series. Yes, the emotions are real, but the situations often are not. Remember, reality is not always reality.
I will see you on Monday, but be sure to follow my weekend adventures:
Instagram: @KristynBurtt for all of my Hollywood Bowl photos tonight.
Twitter: for all of my weekend chatter.
Facebook: to see the "HUGE" check I received this week and why it was sent to me.
The Swirly Garden glass was gifted to me. I was not asked to post about it, I just thought it was a cool gift idea. All opinions are my own.
