Unconfirmed, Possibly Untrue Rumor Says “Jersey Shore” Is Back For Season Two! YAY!

Our prayers to the Red Peppers and Sausage Gods have been answered: Rumor has it that Snooki, The Situation and the gang are coming back for another season in Seaside Heights. (Duh of the century, right? MTV ain’t no fool.)

Apparently, Vinny told a group of admirers at the “Youth In Revolt” after-party that MTV wants the “Jersey Shore” cast back this summer—a piece of information overheard by a New York Daily News gossip columnist. Now, a PR rep for MTV hasn’t officially confirmed this bit of gossip, but let’s not get caught up in details.

The next order of business: can someone puh-leeze find out if our girl Snooki will be getting her own show, “Snookin’ For Love“? [Gawker] Keep reading »

Princes William And Harry Totally Hot Even In Their Official Portrait

Oh, there’s something about men in uniform when you know they’ve got British accents, too! Prince Harry (my fave) posed with his brother Prince William for a painting by artist Nicky Phillips to hang in London’s National Portrait Gallery. [Times of London UK] Keep reading »

What’s A “Twilebrity”?

Vanity Fair has discovered Twitter and—because it’s Vanity Fair—they’re on the case with a new article about “Twitter celebrities.” But oh no, not actual celebrities like tweet-happy Ashton Kutcher. The magazine spoke with a half-dozen young, attractive women who live in places like NYC or the wealthy suburb of Brentwood, CA, and take to social media to share the adventures in their lives, like getting highlights. Twilebrity Sarah Evans, a 29-year-old publicist with 33,000 followers, told Vanity Fair, “Twitter is like going to a giant cocktail party, every day.” Keep reading »

Quotable: Sorry, Directors, Zoe Saldana Won’t Play Your Prostitute

“I have a hard time accepting roles that typecast a culture. I don’t need to play Juana, the prostitute from Washington Heights, in every movie. If it’s been done before, you don’t need my help. Latinos, we’re not all pimps or prostitutes, we don’t all deal drugs; not everyone in Jamaica smokes weed; not every Middle Easterner is a terrorist. It’s boring, offensive, and hurtful. “

“Project Runway” Season 7 Trailer Is Here!


A new season of “Project Runway” already? Didn’t the last season just end, like, last week? I guess the calendar got really screwed up with that Bravo vs. Lifetime fight over the show.

Anyway, here’s the season 7 trailer, starring my dream boyfriend Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and the ever-irascible Nina Garcia. This crop of designers looks hella fun—and hopefully this season, no one (cough Irina cough) will be ripping ideas off New York magazine. [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Will Someone Please Give @NeedyGirlfriend A Book Deal?

S**t My Dad Says? Fake AP? They’re old news, bitch. The new must-follow Twitter feed in town is @NeedyGirlfriend.

The only thing to say about Needy Girlfriend’s insecurities is they are effing hilarious. Is she fat? Does her hair smell like hair? She wasn’t checking your texts; she was skimming your phone with her eyes. Needy Girlfriend doesn’t care if she’s just a friend—it’s unacceptable for you to be hanging out with that girl! Of course, no needy girlfriend would be complete without the emotionally unavailable man in her life who makes her feel insecure: @AloofBoyfriend. Not only is he blissfully unaware of all the things Needy Girlfriend frets about, but he doesn’t want to talk about it. We’re guessing these kids have their own book deal by the time Needy Girlfriend plans—err, accidentally has—her next pregnancy scare. [Needy Girlfriend and Aloof Boyfriend] Keep reading »

Single Ladies Rejoice! Living With Someone Causes Weight Gain

Dang it, we knew there had to be a trade-off for getting sex on demand when you live with a partner: A recent Australian study of 6,000 women has shown that, after 10 years, the average gal gains 15 lbs. if she lives with a partner and 20 lbs. if she lives with someone and has a baby. According to The New York Times, “There is no reason to believe that having a partner causes metabolic changes, so the weight gain among childless women with partners was almost surely caused by altered behavior.” You know, like those post-coital pints of Cherry Garcia.

Andrew From “Real World D.C.” Likes To Draw Rape-y Cartoons

Cartoonist Andrew Woods, the most irritating cast member on MTV’s “Real World: D.C.,” is even more unscrewable than originally thought. Amanda Hess at The Sexist ransacked his student newspaper archives and found that a bunch of Woods’ cartoons are about date-raping women. Yes, rape, the most giggly of topics! Wannabe-brodawg Andrew’s oeuvre damn near entirely consists of cartoons about liquoring women up so he can get laid, which is very much in the style of Tucker Max‘s body of work: women + too much alcohol + scampish naughtiness = pushing the borderlines of consent as a “joke.”

Let’s check out Andrew’s rape-y cartoons, after the jump! Keep reading »
