An Ode To Danno


Though his full name may be Danny Williams, everyone knows the hardworking and lovable sidekick of “Hawaii Five-O” as Danno. James MacArthur brought this iconic character to life, and provided us with one of the most important phrases in the pop culture lexicon: “Book’ em Danno.” MacArthur spent 12 seasons booking Hawaii’s toughest thugs in the original 1968 series. He passed away this week of natural causes at 72. His most memorable role lives on in CBS’s reboot of the show and in the thousands of original fans who remember MacArthur for keeping America’s paradise safe. Keep reading »

All Aboard “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” Sightseeing Tour

Someone in Jersey has been taking notes on the success of the “Sex and the City” bus tour in New York City, because now “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is getting a caravan of their own. Instead of being taken to cupcake shops and Carrie’s stoop, “Housewives” obsessives will be rolled around to the houses, salons, and stores that are highlighted in the Bravo show. The tour will also feature a lunch stop at Caroline Manzo’s The Brownstone, though Caroline insists she is not making a profit from the bus riders. The tour will still cost you $95 per person. For those of us who can’t afford this New Jersey joyride, I suggest getting a car and hitting the landmarks yourself. Or not. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: Taylor Momsen, Why Are You Flashing Your Audience?

Yes, you read that right. Seventeen-year-old Taylor Momsen purposefully bared her chest in the middle of a New York City concert this week. I can only guess it was part of Momsen’s continuing desperate attempts to prove how unconcerned she is with the morals of society. Or a peek at just how badly she wants to get her whole audience arrested for pedophilia? Your pick. Sources at the concert say that T-Mom had pasties on under the top she pulled down, but for me that still doesn’t change the fact that she crossed the line. And for the record, we’ve chosen NOT to run the photo evidence. Keep reading »

Eating Disorders On Campus Leads To “Drunkorexia”

So what is “drunkorexia,” you ask? It’s a new term given to the growing number of college students who choose to skip meals in order to binge drink without gaining weight. While these students are said to be proud of being able to drink and stay slim, just about everyone is understandably concerned about what could happen when calorie consumption is limited to solely alcohol. Health officials worry that the fusion of these two addictive behaviors not only signals major psychological issues, but also wreaks havoc on your physical well-being. As one eating disorder specialist summarized, “You’ve had the experience of drinking on an empty stomach? These folks are drinking on an empty body.” My stomach is quivering in horror just thinking about this. [Newser] Keep reading »

The two 27-year-olds will be making their debut in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series this Saturday to show off their skills behind the wheel.
