Matt Lauer Is Totally OK With Your 15-Year-Old Running Around Naked

This morning on “Today,” Matt, Meredith, and Al (do they even need last names anymore?) were introducing a segment about kids running around naked during the summertime. Meredith asked, “At what age does it become inappropriate?” and Matt, pausing to think for a sec, responded, “Sixteen?” Eww? Clip of the awkies moment above! Keep reading »

Katie Holmes Prances And Shimmies On “So You Think You Can Dance”

Last night on “So You Think You Can Dance,” Katie Holmes — yes, Mrs. Tom Cruise — performed a dance routine as an homage to Judy Garland and also to promote The Dizzy Feet Foundation, which provides art scholarships to children and teens. The charity is cool, the performance was meh. She looked fabulous and I think she does have a real presence on stage, but her dancing is only OK and her lip-syncing was, uh, off at times. Check it out above. Keep reading »

Why Is Gerard Butler Cultivating A Jerk Personality?

It looks like Gerard Butler might have overly embraced his role in “The Ugly Truth” as a brash womanizer. Instead of denying rumors that he’s had affairs with his co-stars, he’s gladly fanning them! In an interview, Butler said:

“That’s how I live my life. Conan asked me about [Jennifer] Aniston, who is my co-star in the movie I’m making now, and I just said, ‘Yeah, we’re getting married. What the hell.’ Tell a joke, that’s my technique. But, I’m careful to also say that I’m marrying Cameron Diaz and maybe Joan Rivers. I like to tell everyone I’m going to be a busy guy.”

Smart move or is he playing up the bad boy routine a bit too much?

Introducing “MERRIme.com: A New Web Comedy”!

Starting today at noon EST, The Frisky will be debuting the first episode of “MERRIme.com,” a new web comedy. Until then, watch the show’s trailer and get psyched. “MERRIme.com” stars Kaily Smith and features appearances by Tom Arnold, “90210″‘s Ryan Eggold, and “Arrested Development”‘s Tony Hale, amongst others. This hilarious web series is about trust fund baby Merrideth Weisman, for whom everything seems perfect: She has the perfect friends, perfect house, perfect Black American Express Card. Life is too good to be true. However, matters take a turn for the worst when Merri discovers her perfect fiance is a “Cheating, Scumbag, Bastard!” After a broken engagement and her father’s ultimatum to find a job, Merri realizes that the key to her survival is not a career, but a man. DUH. And so, the race to the altar begins as she is forced to plunge headfirst into the deep end of the dating pool … the ONLINE dating pool, that is. Soon, Merri is cast into a world wide web of men only to experience the ups and downs of cyber love in the 21st century! [MERRIme.com: A New Web Comedy] Keep reading »

Baby Wolf Learns How To Howl

Good morning! Here’s a stupid cute video of Wolfman Shaun Ellis teaching a wee lil’ baby wolf how to howl. I play this game with (my dog) Lucca all the time, but she just looks at me like I’m cray-cray. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

A Musical “Notebook” Is A Bad Idea

Everyone’s favorite sappy chick flick, “The Notebook,” is being turned into a musical. This troubles me. For starters, I am a fan of the movie, not the book by Nicholas Sparks, and am only a fan of the movie because Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams made the characters’ romance so believable (because, duh, they fell in love while making it). If, say, Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves had been playing Allie and Noah, I would have hated it — just like I hated that horrid movie “The Lake House” — because it would have just been another cheeseball romance with two doofuses tonguing each other in the rain. A musical version — without The Gos and McAdams — could be 10 times as bad because how do you choreograph a tap dance routine about Alzheimer’s? However, we know Gosling can sing and McAdams just looks like a gal who’s done some musical theater, so I would be first in line if these two signed up. But my dreams never come true.

“Alice In Wonderland” Looks Like The Best Movie Ever

The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” has finally come down the rabbit hole and it looks a-maaaazing. Johnny Depp, in particular, looks deliciously wicked, definitely channeling the same dark kookiness of his version of Willy Wonka. Only this time, we hope his brilliance is fully appreciated. With Wonka, he could not escape comparisons to Gene Wilder, but his Mad Hatter can only be held up against a cartoon — we’re sure he’ll hold his own. Keep reading »

Joe Biden Has A Thing For Ukrainian Women

“I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kiev went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn’t say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That’s my observation.” – Vice President Joe Biden

Now, our Vice President is known for having foot-in-mouth disorder, but this little quote in particular icks me out. For starters, it’s kind of un-patriotic. I don’t think that American women are the most beautiful in the world, but it’s not my job to think or say so. But as VP, if Joe Biden feels the need to talk about the “most beautiful” anything, he should really stick to the good ol’ U.S. of A. Really, I don’t want my VP ogling the ladies when he goes abroad and if he’s going to, he should do so subtly and keep his observations to himself. The fashion industry, which employs a bevy of Ukrainian models, already does more than enough to make the Average Jane feel inferior next to ladies like Dasha Astafieva.

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: A Kate And Hailey Cat Fight? Mischa’s Drug Binge?

Tabloids are kind of like elaborate ventures into fan-fiction. Basically, they watch celebrities and then pick and choose where the stories would go if they had their way. Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if these characters fell in love and had to fight for each other? Oh, this celeb is sick—let’s make it heroin! This week, Mischa Barton‘s on drugs, Kate Gosselin and Jon’s new chickadee are clawing each other’s eyes out, Patrick Swayze had a heart attack (that one might be true), and Kristen Stewart is gonna sex it up to win back Robert Pattinson.

R.I.P.: Gidget The Taco Bell Chihuahua Enters Doggie Heaven

Tear. Gidget the Chihuahua, famous for her manly utterance, “Yo quiero, Taco Bell,” in the chain’s commercials (watch one after the jump), has died at the age of 15. “She made so many people happy,” Gidget’s trainer, Sue Chipperton, told People. “[She] always knew where the camera was.” On the one hand, this is sad, because it is ALWAYS SAD when dogs die. But on the other hand, 15 is a good ol’ age for a dog and Chihuahuas are known for living longer than certain other breeds. Gidget certainly had an exciting life. Also, I’m pretty sure my dog Lucca is part Chihuahua, so that hopefully means I have plenty of time to clone her. [People] Keep reading »
