Speaking of “Gossip Girl” … tonight kicks off season four of everyone’s favorite show about Upper East Side richy rich teenagers. As the preview teases, Serena and Blair have headed to Paris for the summer. Blair says, “I am not someone who is going to stop looking for love just because I’ve lost it. Which is why I’m heading directly into the belly of the beast—Paris.” Cue the berets, French rock, and a girl fight in a beautifully lit fountain.
While I am very much looking forward to watching, I already have a bone to pick with the show. Um, why are we going to Paris? So many freaking shows pull the Paris card when they need to shake things up. Keep reading »

“I came off the pill and, weirdly, a week later [I got pregnant]. But then it was really difficult, I had complications. I had about a week and a half of really heavy bleeding and had to have lots of scans … I’ve been living in fear for the past three months.”
—Lily Allen tells the Sunday Times about a scare she had early in her pregnancy. Understandable that she’d be freaked out, considering that she had a miscarriage in 2008. Here’s hoping Lily’s baby stays healthy. Even if she won’t be telling her child that she was once a pop star. [People] Keep reading »
“As part of my spiritual cleansing I’ve spent the last week living alone in the [Costa Rican] jungle, reflecting on my past transgressions, and working to become a better person. I had to live off the land, and hunt to survive. As I departed the country this morning to continue my spiritual journey, I mistakenly brought my hunting weapons to the airport. It was an honest mistake … Costa Rican jail smells like children’s tears. And soup. Delicious soup. Thanks to jail, I finally have something in common with Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and that Lohan chick!”
—Spencer Pratt tells TMZ and his Twitter followers that he was jailed for weapons possession in Costa Rica. We’re sure Gandhi and Mandela are happy to be in such esteemed company. Also, Spencer was apparently in Costa Rica to try to win back Heidi Montag, who is there finding a new plastic surgeon. Make it stop. [TMZ]

When I first heard that a show was premiering on MTV called “World of Jenks,” I assumed that it would A) be about a group of guys who like to punch each other in the nads à la “Jackass” or B) star a stuffed monkey à la “Warren the Ape.” Luckily, neither is the case. Instead, “World of Jenks” is the type of show that MTV, despite its usual flash and pop, is actually amazing at creating: documentary television.
So who is this Jenks? Keep reading »
“My sex scenes with Ben, which were cut—I think, wisely—were raunchy … [Working with Ben] was an awful experience. He’s a horrible human being. Talent-free, I guess we could probably say. It was pure misery. Two-and-half months of absolute, abject terror.”
—Jon Hamm gets sarcastic talking about “The Town” at the Toronto Film Festival. He stars in the flick alongside Ben Affleck, who also directed. Don’t tease us like that, Jon! We’d love it if you and Ben did “Brokeback Mountain: The Sequel.” I dub your partnership Hammfleck. [People] Keep reading »
