“Huge” Recap: Fat People Were On TV And, Whaddya Know, The World Didn’t End

When the opening shot of a TV show is a scale, one thing is clear: this show will be about weight. But true to what actress Nikki Blonsky told me in our recent Q&A, her new ABC Family show “Huge” is about so many things beyond just body size. “Huge” debuted on ABC Family last night and it’s cute, funny and just like Blonsky said, it’s unlike any other show on television. Visually, the show is a complete anomaly: Nearly every single actor is plus-sized. Their size stood out at first, but soon I forgot it was a show about kids at a weight-loss camp and just saw it as a show about kids.

Spoilers, after the jump … Keep reading »

Rumor Alert: Has MTV Canceled “The City”?

Oh noes, Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo might have lost their fake jobs! Fashionista.com is reporting that MTV is canceling “The City” after this season. Rumor has it, MTV is booting Palermo off the network because she was cutting into Snooki’s pickle budget. Just kidding! We don’t know why “The City” would be canceled or if the rumor is even true. Frankly, we’re surprised the “Hills” spin-off lasted this long: Whitney Port has always been très boring, non? The only character we’ll miss is Kelly Cutrone, the People’s Revolution fashion PR girl. Thankfully, Kelly’s got her own show, “Kell On Earth,” on Bravo — but considering she’s one of Whitney Eve‘s biggest advocates, this won’t be the last we’ve seen of Whitney yet. Palermo, however, can crawl back from whence she came. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Facebook’s “100 Biggest Sluts” Page Creator Could Face Stalking Charges

The Australian who created a Facebook page called “100 Biggest Sluts of Ballarat” will soon learn the list was not only cruel, but criminal! [FYI: Ballarat is a regional city in Victoria, Australia.] Police say the 60 women who contacted them after being called “sluts” on the nasty page (which has since been taken down) could each seek a charge of stalking against the site’s creator. Yes, stalking. Apparently, slut-shaming one’s fellow Ballarat-ians online is illegal. “Stalking covers quite a large range of actions and one of them is using the computer to offend or harass a particular person,” Detective Craig Dooley told Perth Now. Cops say they interviewed someone in relation to the incident, but are still looking for more info.

We hope this Facebook-ing fool never gets laid again. That’ll teach him/her to mess with angry sluts! [Perth Now and The Age] Keep reading »

Cate Edwards speaks! This week’s People magazine will feature an interview with Elizabeth Edwards and her 28-year-old daughter, who will open up publicly for the first time about her dad, John Edwards, and her mother’s cancer. Cate has also penned a essay for People about her mom. “There are the things she taught without words [like] how to continue to live your life on your own terms when it somehow becomes savaged by people you never invited into it,” Cate wrote. The mother/daughter duo are promoting the paperback release of Resilience, Elizabeth’s bestselling memoir.

Cate, 28, is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard, a former editorial assistant for Vanity Fair and now clerks for a federal judge in Washington, D.C. Cate has every reason to play the Lindsay Lohan card — I mean, what would you do if your dad cheated with a professional wackadoodle like Rielle Hunter? — but the girl is nothing but a class act.
