I am not the world’s biggest Good Charlotte fan. But, man, am I loving this video for their song “Last Night” because “Double Dare” was so awesome! I especially appreciate that Marc Summers pushed past his extreme OCD to once again gaze upon the giant nose with all the boogers you have to rummage through to find the flag. Da Nose was the best.

Last night, after the disappointing revelation that Brad and Emily are probably not going to live happily ever after, speculation instantly began on who would be the next “Bachelorette.” Would ABC go with the obvious choice, Chantal O’Brien, the gorgeous brunette who was Brad’s runner-up? That theory were quickly shot down during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On the show, it was announced that Ashley Hebert, the sweet dental student Brad sent home from Cape Town, would be the new “Bachelorette.” [CNN] Keep reading »
Noah and the Whale are the kind of cute British boys who wear suspenders, strum ukuleles, and name themselves after their favorite indie movie. (Which would be “The Squid and the Whale,” directed by Noah Bumbach.) Oh, and did we mention the whistling? Their new album, Last Night on Earth, sounds much more produced in a studio rather than recorded in a beach house basement by guys playing with slinkys in between takes. Overall, it has a bit of a Tom Petty vibe, which is strange considering the whole British thing. Still, they give the sound a whimsical spin, naturally.
Last night’s season finale of “The Bachelor” was an incredible letdown. I felt pretty sure a few weeks back, when Brad Womack and Emily Maynard landed on their own private island and he broke into hives while trying to tell her how much he cared about her, that Emily would be his choice in the end. As expected, Brad let Chantal go in a burst of tears and then got down on one knee and slipped a big, glittering diamond on Emily’s finger. “I’ve wanted to tell you I’ve loved you for so long,” he said, before telling her she’s “the one.” Big duh.
But then came the “After the Final Rose” ceremony. Keep reading »
A few weeks back, Jimmy Kimmel
—and Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel, Sofia Vergara, Lindsay Lohan, and Eva Longoria—introduced us to Hottie Body Humpilates
. Now Anna Faris, Amanda Seyfried, January Jones, Kristen Bell, Zoe Saldana, Heidi Klum, Neil Patrick Harris, and many others have convinced us to try Kimmel’s “Jim Miracle Diet.” The plan? Jimmy eats four-fifths of your food, so you don’t have to! Love Scarlett Johansson
explaining she tried everything to lose weight, even “hiring a trainer to smack the food out of my hand.” And sorry, but that Jessica Biel
“before” photo is the funniest thing I’ve seen today. Though it is kinda early. [NY Post

It’s 10pm—does LeAnn Rimes know where her fiance is? Because chances are, he may be at the Playboy Club. Eddie Cibrian has landed the lead role in NBC’s new pilot, “Playboy,” which sounds kind of like the network’s answer to “Mad Men.” The show is set in 1963 at Chicago’s exclusive Playboy Club and Eddie will be playing Nick Dalton, a lawyer and regular known for being something of a mob fixer.
