Real Housewives say that filming their show is tantamount to "slave labor." If slave labor involved spending husbands' money on Juicy Couture track suits and throwing antipasto at each other's nose jobs. NAACP slightly miffed. Other housewives' reflections: bankruptcy, "normal." (celebuzz)
For someone who hasn't watched The Office since around the time Pam broke off her engagement with Roy (wait, you mean she's married to Jim and
they have a kid??), the recent rumors being battered about regarding the
show's future have me surprisingly giddy. Those rumors being the best-case-scenario that Ricky Gervais may be taking David Brent across
the pond to replace Steve Carell when he departs following this season
in favor of the opulent pastures of Hollywood.
It seems that the newly returned (and showered up) Christina Aguilera is ready to make her bid for next Oscar season, if the trailer for her upcoming feature film "Burlesque" is any evidence. Stronger evidence suggests that Xtina has ripped a chapter out of Mariah Carey's book of dubious career moves, because the plot of this film sounds vaguely familiar.
Meet Basil Marceaux, Tennessee gubernatorial candidate and proud graduate of the Tom Menino School of Public Speaking.
Bristol and Levi, former teenage paramours and parents to an Alaskan baby, are no longer engaged...again. Rumor has it Levi knocked up yet another teenager. Also, there were whispers of Levi going off to star in some music video mocking Bristol's family (early footage can be seen here,) offering Bristol the excuse that he was, instead, off to "a hunting show in Hollywood."

Kids today. They just don't get God like they used to. All these young whippersnappers care about are their smart phones, and their facebooks and their pop music. What a world. Which is, apparently, why one trailblazing man of the cloth took a page out of T. Pain's well-worn handbook and created the above video.
What's funnier than watching the gang of glorified rent-a-cops bumble around in crotch-hugging shorts on Reno 911!? Watching them do it in zero gravity! On a spaceship! We'd wouldn't mind watching Lt. Dangle pat down an alleged extra-terrestrial prostitute with six boobs, would you? Of course you wouldn't.
He's alive and he is sick of all the death gossip-mongering, ok? He didn't drown facedown in a kiddie pool filled with delicious JELL-O pudding. He didn't giggle himself into cardiac arrest over something a precocious 5-year-old said. He is alive, damn it. Another death rumor went viral this Monday (on Twitter, where else?) ringing the fourth death knell for the 73-year-old funnyman.
It's my tremendous honor to announce that I'll be interviewing Crazy Legs this Friday in Boston (info below) after a FREE screening of Bouncing Cats. For those who don't yet know about this film, it follows the Rock Steady legend and African b-boy Abraham "Abramz" Tekya in their mission to teach peace through breaking throughout war-torn Uganda.
While riding on the wave of her newfound hotness, the skeletons in Tina Fey's closet have come out. They are Liz Lemon.
The above: Lady Gaga during her Vanity Fair shoot.
You know, for the interview where she admitted that she “occasionally” does drugs and is afraid that having sex will suck the creativity out of her vagina.
Kanye West's online activity is weird and erratic. Just like the self-appointed king of awesomeness himself. The messiah of all that glitters recently stood up from his diamond-encrusted throne, set down his golden chalice of talent-juice and took a moment to survey his kingdom. His subjects gaped up at him through thankful, teary eyes, hands raised beseechingly, and waited.
Buried in the last few paragraphs of a long story, the UK's Daily Mail quotes a friend of BRADLEY MANNING thusly: "‘He was different from other kids. He was interested in girls but he
could never really get them to be interested in him. When he was 13, he
told me he was gay.’"
Over the weekend, the British Daily Telegraph described Manning as "openly homosexual," and delved into his Facebook account to retrieve a status update referring to "an ex-boyfriend" as well as a photo of Manning, at a gay-rights rally, holding a placard that demands LGBT rights on the battlefield.
So last night's Mad Men . . . hoo boy. That was something, all right. Not going to do a full recap in this space for the benefit of those who've yet to see it, but for those who did watch last night, feel free to take a moment out of your lunch break to discuss it with us. We'll be back here in this space starting around 12:30; we promise we won't make anyone wear a Santa suit. Just don't pour cereal all over the place.
