As you may have heard through The Frisky grapevine, the cast of “Jersey Shore” is doing a series of Best Picture nominee spoofs in the days leading up to the Oscars. Well, now we have three more videos—let us consider it a gift from the guido gods. Check out Snooki doing her best Brad Pitt in “Inglourious Basterds” impression, only this time, instead of killing Nazis the crew is dedicated to killing brain cells. So true, Snooki, so true. [TBS]
Check out the other two videos after the jump, and see how these supposed Italian-Americans take on “Avatar.” Keep reading »
The formula seems to be if you are a young, female up-and-comer in Hollywood, and in the midst of puberty (or already have large assets), you are going to get hit with a breast implant rumor. Read on to see which starlets and songstresses have dealt with this tabloid rite of passage.
The 2010 Winter Olympics has some heart-wrenching stories. The games started off on a tragic note when the 21-year-old Georgian luger, Nodar Kumaritashvili, died on impact during a training run, hours before the opening ceremony. Kumaritashvili’s death cast somewhat of a dark cloud over the Olympics, but there is a silver lining. As Morgan Freeman’s soothing voice will tell you in the numerous Visa ads playing during the games, there are also plenty of Olympic happy endings as well. One of the most recent inspirational tearjerkers is the story of Canadian figure skater Joannie Rochette, whose mother passed away suddenly from a heart attack two days before Joannie’s first skate. But yesterday, Joannie delivered an almost flawless short program that left her in third place going into Thursday night’s long performance. Joannie said that she had “no regrets” about her short program performance and while “words cannot describe” what she is going through, she appreciates everyone’s support. Kleenex, please!

A first love is a pretty freaking powerful thing. It serves as the opening chapter to the epic novel that is your love life. While most first loves aren’t meant to be forever, they usually leave behind some lingering and pesky “what ifs?” What if I should’ve stuck it out? What if that was the best sex I’ll ever have? What if he became rich and successful? What if he was the one? A new TV Land show, “First Love, Second Chance,” will be answering those questions for a few former couples. Each episode of the show, which will premiere March 10, reunites a single person with their also conveniently single first love, to see if they want to try again. The couple spends two weeks living together—one week at her place and one at his—after which they must tell the other if they are worth a second chance. It’s kind of like “Grease,” except with Dannys and Sandys who can’t sing. To us this sounds like a recipe for drama—in a good way. Here are the five reasons we’ll be watching “First Love, Second Chance.” Keep reading »
So if you weren’t able to stay up through the glitter and glamour of the men’s figure skating long program last night, I’ll just tell you that it was pretty durn exciting when American Evan Lysacek skated a nearly flawless program and won gold, defeating Ruskie champion Evgeni Plushenko. (Unfortunately Lysacek’s teammate, the fantastic Johnny Weir, did not have the same success—but we’ve already ranted about that.) We are still sort of in awe of the sheer fantastic-ness that is Evan. Here are 10 reasons he deserves your love and already has ours. Keep reading »
