Help Wanted: Must Love Cheerios And Disney

When times get tough, the job market tends to get a little … er … creative. You know a Craigslist “gigs” ad is going to be sketchy when it starts with these words: “This is an odd request.” Where it goes from there, I could not have predicted in my wildest Disney-fied dreams. Let me give you a hint: This gig involves role play, a bad Disney film from the ’80s, and a love of Cheerios. Yep. That’s right. You guessed it. Someone is hiring for a “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” role-play partner. The perfect candidate would be skilled at playing “normal size” to a “shrunken individual” and have extensive knowledge of the Cheerios scene from “Honey I Shrunk The Kids.” Requirements for the job? A verbose female who is descriptive almost to the point of it being ridiculous, very imaginative, and a lover of Cheerios. Pay? $50 per session via email or IM. Who’s game? It can’t be real, but it’s just too mind-blowingly bizarre to be fake. I bet the resumes are just rolling in. [Craiglist] Keep reading »

What’s Your First Response To The New TLC Web Series “A Conception Story”?

I may be unpopular for saying this, but I’m really tired of reality TV series about pregnancy and kids. I used to enjoy watching “A Baby Story” on TLC until “Jon & Kate Plus 8” came along and bastardized the baby biz. It seemed like parenthood and pregnancy went from awe-inspiring phenomenon to cultural hot commodity over night. I just can’t endorse anything that portrays children as valuable accessories. I personally think the pregnancy reality market is way more than covered, but TLC and First Response home pregnancy tests think there’s an untapped reality pregnancy niche. Keep reading »

11 Reasons Why We’re Smurfing Out Over The New Smurfs Movie

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la … “The Smurfs” film is coming soon to a theater near you. According to the New York Post, Hank Azaria, who will play Gargamel, has been spotted rocking a “chrome dome” in public, which can only mean one thing. We’re getting closer to the slated 2011 release of the film. If you were a child in the ’80s and your family owned a television, then you were probably glued to the screen every Saturday morning watching your favorite little, blue people foil Gargamel’s evil schemes, live peacefully as communists, and spread their Smurfiness around the village. After the jump, why we’re totally Smurfing out over the film. [NY Post] Keep reading »

8 Celebs Who Played Nerds But Landed Super Hotties In Real Life

Let me pick my jaw up off the floor and dust it off. Seth Green, who is notoriously typecast as “the dorky, funny guy,” just got hitched to super hot actress Clare Grant on Sunday, at George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch. Nice score, Seth. Maybe money can buy you love? OK, that’s shallow of me—perhaps he makes her laugh. And I guess he was pretty cool on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” If werewolves can be “cool.” [Radar]

37 Years Later, Carly Simon Finally Makes A Video For “You’re So Vain”

A little while back, it was rumored that Carly Simon’s 1973 hit “You’re So Vain” was actually about David Geffen. And here I was assuming all along that it was about every guy I’ve ever dated. Carly put all that energy into keeping the song’s “you” a secret that she forgot to make a music video. She talked about her oversight at a Tribeca Film Festival party, telling the crowd, “I never really thought about it until I was on the ‘Today’ show recently and had a 103-degree temperature. I was completely out of it, but I realized, why don’t I have a video for ‘You’re So Vain?’” Good question, Carly. We’ve been wondering the same thing for like … our whole lives. I guess Geffen and my narcissistic exes were all booked up, because Carly chose to have a competition to see who could make the best “You’re So Vain” video instead of making her own. The winning entry shows a Hasidic Jew searching for a pie. Huh? I don’t get it. Please explain. I guess we’ll have to wait until it hits YouTube to find out. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Colin Farrell And 6 Other Celebs Who Struggled With Accents

Colin Farrell was tripping over the Irish accent he had to do for his latest role in the film “Ondine,” which is slightly bizarre considering he’s … uh … Irish. “I spent most of my childhood watching ‘TJ Hooker’ and ‘CHIPS’ so I was more familiar with an American accent than an Irish one,” he said. “This film was one of the hardest accents I’ve had to do especially because I felt a national obligation not to f— it up.” Poor Colin, it must have been really hard for him to replicate the way he talks in real life. I guess that’s why he gets the big bucks? [NY Daily News]

“DWTS” Is Kicking “The Bachelor”‘s Butt In The Romance Department

dwts love g1 jpg
“Dancing With The Stars” is fast becoming a more reliable source for love than “The Bachelor,” which is totally embarrassing. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the new dating cesspool for B,C, and D-list celebs. Maybe it’s the garish costumes, the bad cover music, or the sexy Viennese waltzes that makes so many of the dancing duos fall in love … or at least make us believe they are. Since Derek Hough and Shannon Elizabeth ended their “DWTS” romance, he is free to dance his way into his new partner’s heart. The rumor is that Derek may be practicing the horizontal polka with his partner Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. But Scherzinger denies the charges saying that Derek is just like a little brother to her and that her relationship with race car driver bf Lewis Hamilton is still going full throttle. Only time shall tell if this pair really has chemistry. After the jump, some more “DWTS” romances. [NY Post, People]

Shakira Shakes Up Controversy Over Arizona’s New Immigration Laws

If I wasn’t already slightly embarrassed to admit that I grew up in Arizona, I am now. With the announcement of the new immigration laws, I want to boycott the state altogether, but unfortunately that’s not an option since my family lives here. In fact, I am here right now with my brother for a family visit. On the flight over from NYC, there was a guy sitting a few rows behind me wearing a baseball cap that said, “Don’t shoot! I’m legal!” Yes, it was meant to be ironically disdainful, but this issue is personal for my brother. His girlfriend is a Canadian citizen, which would make it potentially dangerous for her to come visit. That’s how over-the-top the new laws are. Speaking of visiting … Arizona has a famous visitor this week who is also deeply angered by the new laws. Keep reading »

Rielle Hunter Tries To Prove What A Private Person She Is On Oprah


Rielle Hunter really wants us to know what a PRIVATE person she is. The best way to do that? An interview with Oprah of course. Yet oddly, her little chat with the Big O seemed anything but private. Like when she admitted that she felt like she did nothing wrong by having an affair with John Edwards claiming, “I followed my heart and I believe it was the right thing to do.” That’s some advanced morality right there. I was also cringing when she explained her intention in getting involved with Edwards. She felt in her heart that she could help him “see his authentic self” and “be more of his authentic self so people could see who he really is.” That just makes her sound so arrogant and clueless.
