This season of “Bachelor Pad” atoned for all of its boringness in the finale. Let’s start off light, before I delve into the dark and dirty underbelly where people betray one another and we ponder the ways in which money corrupts human beings. Let’s start with Jamie’s ridiculous Pocahontas outfit. It’s as if she thought we would forget what a lunatic she was on the show by dressing like an even bigger lunatic for the finale. It didn’t work. I had almost forgotten. But her outfit brought all the cringeworthy memories back — the awkward makeout session with Chris, how she wanted to fall in love on TV so her kids could see it. Ugh. And just like the false eyelashes and face jewelry she wore, her Padmates called her out for being “fake.” But one couple found something real. Find out which couple, to quote Rihanna, “found love in a hopeless place,” after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s become fairly common knowledge that the unofficial awards season kicks off with the Toronto International Film Festival. Critics and film fans alike have all eyes on the Canadian city as studios launch their Oscar hopefuls and indies look for distributors.
With films like “Slumdog Millionaire” and “The King’s Speech” having made their international debuts at the fest, the movies showing this year are among those we can’t wait to see this fall — in fact, we listed 20 of them before TIFF even kicked off. So, how did they fare? Well, here’s what the reviewers from our sister site, Film.com, had to say…

Good day, and welcome to Terrible Young People Behaving Terribly. On this episode of “Gallery Girls,” we’re mainly concerned with the comings and goings and It-Girl-ing of one Angela Pham, resident photographer and Brooklynite. It seems that Angela insists on pursuing her dreams or something of becoming a photographer/It Girl, and it’s the eve of her first big show. “It has to be good or else I don’t know what will happen to my reputation,” she intones. Yes, because that’s what making art is all about. Your reputation. Keep reading »
In case you have been living under a rock, “Gangnam Style” is the most absurd dance craze since “The Macarena” and you should not attempt to do it unless a) you are willing to look like an idiot, or B) you have the physical dexterity of Britney Spears (and, apparently, Ellen DeGeneres). Ellen surprised Brit-Brit with a visit for Psy, the South Koren pop star/rapper to teach her his sick moves. Dress classy and dance cheesy, everyone! [Entertainment Weekly]
Is there anything more entertaining than when celebrities read from trashy books? “No Reservations” star Anthony Bourdain is no Gilbert Gottfried reading 50 Shades Of Grey but he does bring a certain Jersey-fied panache to Snooki’s novel, A Shore Thing. Oh, God, I just realized she (“her ghostwriter”) is probably going to write a novel about having a baby. [BlackBook Mag]
