“For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said, ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.’ He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a prick. I’ll give him the credit — he made me an adult, and put me on the road that I’m traveling.”
— Adele shares that her ex-boyfriend, who inspired the songs on her first album, 19, thought he was entitled to royalties for fueling all her songs of heartbreak and devastation. Wow, what nerve that guy had. Luckily none of our exes have asked for a cut of the profits from all the ink we’ve spilled about them on The Frisky. Maybe I shouldn’t give them any ideas.

Matthew Morrison kind of drives us crazy as Will Schuester on “Glee.” Homedude is just a touch whiny, you know? But we’re still excited for his debut album, Matthew Morrison, because his abs are amazing (even if he ate nothing but sweet potatoes for days to get them) and because we think curly hair on guys is kind of cute. The best moments on the album are definitely his duets—with his college buddy and “Glee” guest star Gwyneth Paltrow as well as with Sting and Elton John. And we’re just proud of the guy for going in New Directions. Har Har.
Bristol Palin‘s reality show is happening, people. (Is this why she (maybe) got plastic surgery?) There’s no baby daddy Levi Johnston in it. There is no “16 & Pregnant” pal Maci Bookout in it. And it’s airing on the BIO network, which I’ve never heard of. So far, not so good. The utterly compelling premise of Bristol’s reality show? America’s most famous teen mom moves into an apartment with her “Dancing with the Stars” castmate Kyle Massey, his brother, Chris Massey, and her son, Tripp. According to BIO’s press release, the show “follows Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey.” Wait, she is living with boys? BOYS! Or does Disney neuter their male employees at contract signage? (Note to self: must look up.) Keep reading »
“I remember watching it as a kid, with Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore, and going: ‘Why is the f**king Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do?’ I liked Tonto, even at that tender age, and knew Tonto was getting the unpleasant end of the stick here. That’s stuck with me. And when the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to — ‘eliminate’ isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in ‘The Lone Ranger,’ but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”
—Johnny Depp talks about his reinterpretation of “The Lone Ranger,” which will be directed by Gore Verbinski, the man behind the camera for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. The twist on the classic “Ranger” story? That Johnny, who is actually part Native American, will play Tonto, the lead role. The secondary role, The Lone Ranger, has yet to be cast but both Ryan Gosling and Armie Hammer have both been rumored for it. We say: yes! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Pauly D and The Situation arrived at the airport last week with their bags packed, ready to head to Florence, Italy, to film season four of “Jersey Shore.” But they were told to hang tight as production has been postponed for a second time. (It was postponed the first time around as the cast held out for more lucrative contracts.) Apparently, Italians aren’t too hyped about hosting our favorite fist-pumpers. First, the mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, drew up a list of rules for the cast: they cannot be filmed in bars. They cannot drink in public. They cannot portray Florence as a drinking town. And they can only positively feature Italian culture.
But now he’s getting more antagonistic. Keep reading »
“I shouldn’t be saying this but he was kind of a brat [on the set]. He was very nice to me, but he locked one of the producers in a closet and he put his fist through a cake that was on the craft service table.”
—Marg Helgenberger of “CSI” tells French magazine Le Grand Direct Des Medias what it was like to have Justin Bieber co-star on the show last year. Well, I personally just had to spit out my orange juice reading this. I totally believe it. After all, Justin is known for his pranks. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
The world was thoroughly enchanted with Pippa Middleton‘s butt in her white maid-of-honor dress at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding. And naturally, people want to see more of her … body. Vivid Entertainment has apparently offered Pippa $5 million to shoot a single explicit scene in a porno. Vivid president Steven Hirsh says he was even more enticed by Pippa after seeing the “Girls Gone Wild”-ish photo of her dancing in her bra with an equally drunk, undressed chap. “After seeing photos of you having a great time at a party, I decided to offer you a role in one of our upcoming movies,” Hirsch wrote.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kempner
When Jon Hamm shirtless is not the best part of the movie, you know it’s a good one.
That’s my summary of “Bridesmaids” in one sentence.
But of course, there’s more to say… Keep reading »
If I learned anything from Bon Jovi in the ’80s it was that an object’s slipperiness had a direct correlation with that same object’s relative wetness. But more importantly, I learned that we should never say goodbye.
However, following through with such a sentiment — never say goodbye — is much more difficult than scrawling it across your bulging crotch on an 8-by-10 -inch glossy for a hysterical groupie.
The truth is, we have to say goodbye — especially in television — no matter how complicated, emotional or difficult that might be. Some say goodbye too soon, some hang on far too long, and some depart at just the right time. It’s our job to make peace with those goodbyes. Read more… Keep reading »
