Jon Hamm has nabbed himself four Emmys playing the now-iconic role of Don Draper on “Mad Men.” But apparently, he was not producers first choice for the role.

Last week, Marisa Tomei squealed that she went skinny dipping at George Clooney’s house in Lake Como. She even implied that her “Ides of March” co-star Evan Rachel Wood had stripped down to splash about with her. “George kind of … I don’t know if he set us up but he certainly set us u…

A First Look At “The Raven,” The Edgar Allan Poe Movie

I, like everyone else who has read “The Telltale Heart” and “The Masque of the Red Death,” am obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe. And yet, I’ve been a little apprehensive about the fact that Relativity Media is making a movie called “The Raven,” about the classic American author. I had assumed it would be a…

Mates of State is a band composed of two people—Jason Hammel and Kori Gardner—who happen to be married. And their upbeat, clap-able tunes make marriage sound really, really fun.

Girl Talk: I Am A Reunion Concert Junkie

“Close your eyes, give me your hand … darling. Do you feel my heart beating?”

Earlier this week, I found myself swaying back and forth, a glass of Prosecco in my hand, belting out the lyrics to The Bangles’ “Eternal Flame,” my favorite song circa 1988. I was 8 years old when the…

The Coen Brothers To Make A TV Show

As a major TV addict, it’s been exciting over the past few years to watch actors you’d normally see on the big screen—the Zooey Deschanels, the Toni Collettes, and the Steve Buscemis—sign on for small screen projects. Now it seems like big name directors are starting to pay attention to the boob tube, too. If…

Lady Gaga News: A Lifetime Movie And An Invitation To Join Queen?

We love a good Lifetime movie as much as the next girl. No seriously, we’ve watched “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?” more times collectively than we’d wish to confess. But we’re a little skeptical of a new flick that Lifetime has in the works called “Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story.” The network ha…

A 40-year-old woman in Moscow must be extremely happy with her decision to get silicon breast implants five years ago. And not just because her tatas look great in a tank top. Apparently, her implants saved her life. When she and her husband got in a fight earlier this week, he flew into a rage,…

Chris Pratt’s Cat-gate

Chris Pratt, aka the husband of Anna Faris who you know from “Parks and Recreation,” is on cat lovers’ s**t lists. On Monday, he tweeted a photo of a big white fluffy cat along with the message, “Anyone in the LA area want a cat? Full disclosure, she’s old and prone to accidents. So sweet…

“America’s Next Top Model” Ann Markley Is Back

Ann Markley is hardly an “America’s Next Top Model” all-star. Even though she was completely stunning and the judges kept commenting on her incredible potential, she kind of sucked at the competition. Instead of rising to the top of the pack, she became a cranky nag, always picking at eventual winner Eva Pigford. But I…

Jennifer Aniston, Self-Admitted Chair Thrower

“I threw a chair at a director. It wasn’t my proudest moment. He was treating a script supervisor horribly … When the director walked in, I threw a chair at him. I missed, of course. I was like, ‘You can’t speak to people like that.’ I can’t tolerate it.”

A “Mr. Ed” Movie Is In The Works

I am terrified of horses. Not because I had a bad experience with one when I was younger. Nope, my irrational fear began while watching “Mr. Ed” reruns on Nick-at Nite. I mean, a talking, scheming horse—that is pretty darn scary to a kid! Well, unluckily for me, it appears that “Mr. Ed” may soo…

Were you lucky enough to nab tickets to see Adele this month?

Katy Perry As Snow White

Katy Perry said goodbye to her cotton candy pink locks in this ad for GHD hair styling products. Instead, she channeled her inner Snow White, holding a poisoned apple. Personally, I love this look and think it’s far superior to either Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins as the fairy tale heroine. I also love the…

Kat Von D Recording An Album

“I’ve been passionate about music all my life. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message. It’ll be more on the dark, more tragically romantic [side]  …  I think it’s much like tattooing or the TV show…

Taye Diggs’ Mom Thought He’d “Marry A White Girl”

“My mother said ‘I told you!’ She always thought—I hate this, but I’m being honest! She said, ‘I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!’ It was a trip because [when Idina] took me home, her dad came out and I was like, ‘Ok, well take off that hood then and let’s see.’…
