TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” is everything I could have longed for in a show and more. I am like a kid in a candy store grappling with toilet paper consumers, rock eaters, compulsive nail growers, and even pee drinkers. OK, so the pee drinking episode was really hard to watch. But most of the others … absolutely compelling. So many odd obsessions, so little time. What are the chances they’ll start airing the show ’round the clock? Maybe they could feature Scarlett Johansson next season. Now that she’s off her strict “Avengers” diet, she’s going buck wild … with buffalo wings. “Oh my good [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them … You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me … I can’t stop eating them, I just can’t get enough.” That sounds like the makings of a great “My Strange Addiction” episode. I’m picturing ScarJo making covert excursions to sports bars and eating her wings secretly in the parking lot. Keep on clicking to see other celebs’ strange addictions. [Celebitchy]
“I pinched myself everyday, especially after doing love scenes with Nicole Kidman. It was the highlight of my life. Nicole was something else and was always in character. She didn’t get weird method, like some actors do, but I have never seen anyone so centered.”
– Zac Efron discusses the delightful time he had filming “Paperboy” with Nicole Kidman. Zac plays the eponymous paperboy in the movie, while Nicole “stars as Charlotte Bless, a woman who writes letters to death row inmates and who is having a correspondence with the murder suspect, played by John Cusack.” OK, then.

I thought I could count on Emma Roberts to keep things sleek, chic, and under control, but not so. Coachella would be the perfect opportunity to let your freak flag fly, and Emma seems to have taken up that offer. Girlfriend is looking less than her usual classy self in a bizarre boob tube she might have put through a paper shredder before changing her mind, not to mention those unbuttoned cut-offs. Seriously, I want to know what she was thinking. I can’t help but approximate, in the spirit of Coachella, that drugs may have been involved in the creation of this outfit. Thanks, drugs!
If you haven’t already read the 2005 memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, pick it up or download it ASAP. It is seriously one of the most riveting books I’ve read. In case you don’t trust my taste, it spent over 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, so there’s that. But great books don’t always transition seamlessly into great films. Does anyone remember the film version of “Running With Scissors”? No, because it was awful. Which is weird because the book was really compelling. Hearing that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in the film version of “The Glass Castle” gives us hope for its greatness. Um, yes, please. She would be perfect to play Jeannette Walls. We’ll be staying tuned for casting announcements. [Just Jared]
Carlton Banks was secretly my favorite character on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.” Even then I knew he was a dork after my own heart. These days Alfonso Ribeiro is keeping busy hosting dance party flash mobs to the Tom Jones song “It’s Not Unusual,” like this one filmed on the Universal Studios City Walk in Hollywood. Apparently he was trying to break a world record for most people dancing to the same song at the same time around the globe. (It brings pain to my heart that I cannot embed the video on The Frisky, but you can watch it here.) Glad to see you’re still awesome, Carlton Banks.
What have you been up to lately, Will Smith? Another stupid “Men In Black” movie? Feh. [The Sun UK]
