“The Bachelorette” Finds Out Why One Paramour Is Nicknamed “Shooter”


Last night was the premiere episode of “The Bachelorette,” and boy, was it a doozy. (BTW, thanks to those of you who stopped by and participated in the liveblog!) In what is sure to be a classic moment of the “Bach” record books, one bachelor hoped it wasn’t “too soon” to share the meaning behind his nickname, “Shooter,” with Ali. Let’s just say, it isn’t because he’s good with firearms. Check out the clip, above. Spoiler: he was sent packing! Keep reading »

American Kennel Club Welcomes Mutts For The First Time

For the first time in its 125-year history, the American Kennel Club is allowing mutts to compete alongside pure breeds in their dog shows. OK, so not in every category; mixed breeds are only allowed to compete in the skills-based competitions like Agility, Rally and Obedience. But the message is clear — the organization whose mission has been to “advance the study, breeding, exhibiting, running and maintenance of purebred dogs” is finally recognizing the beauty of all dogs. “AKC has always been best known as an advocate for purebred dogs,” says the AKC’s Gina DiNardo, in discussing the change. “But [we're] concerned about the welfare of all dogs.” And if all dogs are worthy of being shown and celebrated in front of the AKC, maybe less people will be inclined to purchase pure breeds from unethical puppy mills and will adopt instead.

Nagy complained that, “The thing that really hurt me is that it all came out not through my own doing.” Because, obviously, the phone company had the affair on her behalf. Keep reading »

Whenever I hear about people moving in with their boyfriends, my first reaction is always, “Why?” I really enjoy having my personal space and have rarely wanted to see more of anyone I’m dating. I guess Reese Witherspoon feels differently, because she is shacking up with her boyfriend/agent Jim Toth, after dating for four months. A source says they “don’t want to spend any time apart.” Gross. And so quickly! [NY Daily News]

We’ve rounded up a few other celebrity couples who got to the monogrammed his and hers towels super soon!

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” For May 24th 2010

Oh hai. Haven’t you missed this? Our little rendez-vous every Monday night, I mean. I know it seems like eons ago that Jake Pavelka gave Vienna Girardi his final rose — can you believe that they are still together?! — but our weekly date night is back in the form of a new season of “The Bachelorette.” Our lookin’-for-love cutie this time around? Ali Fedotowsky, who apparently decided her job at Facebook wasn’t worth it after it cost her Jake the first time around, when she was in the Final Four on “The Bachelor.” I think we all knew she could do so much better than that cheeseball, right? Tonight, on the premiere episode, Ali meets the 25 bachelors vying for her heart, gives out a first impression rose, and kicks a few tools to the curb! I will see you bitches at 9 p.m. EST — don’t forget the boxed wine! Keep reading »

Chris Klein Spoofs His Own Terrible Audition


You know what would be a kind of ironic and unexpected result of that leaked Chris Klein audition tape that we posted a week ago? That it would eventually result in him getting more work. The blogosphere pissed itself with laughter at Klein’s terribly douchey audition tape for “Mamma Mia!” but the essentially out-of-work actor has responded in the best way possible — spoofing himself in a Funny or Die video. And to be honest, the dude is actually very funny. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
