Who Would Meryl Shag?

Saucy little minx Meryl Streep hit up “Watch What Happens Live” for a rousing game of Shun, Shag or Marry with her ex-costars. The options were Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman. Personally I would have chosen Redford to shag and that offer will remain open until he’s dead. [Bravo TV]

Mom From "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" Loses 240 Pounds

If you’ve ever seen the film adaptation of Peter Hedges’ novel What’s Eating Gilbert Grape you’ll remember Darlene Cates. She played the matriarch of the Grape clan, Bonnie Grape, a woman who’d ballooned to more than 500 pounds and relied on her kids to take care of her. Cates, who’d never appeared in films prior to “Grape,” has a compelling back story. She was spotted by “Grape” director Lasse Halstrom after she appeared on an episode of “The Sally Jessy Raphael Show,” about people who were homebound because of their weight.

In a recent interview with The Dallas Morning News Cates revealed that after the movie, her weight continued to  be an issue. In 2011, she spent much of the year in the hospital, suffering from weight-related complications. But recently, Cates lost more than 240 pounds, and is down to 331 pounds. She’s looking forward to acting again, but refuses to take roles that lambast or ridicule overweight people. Cates still has trouble walking, but says that she no longer suffers from diabetes and has started doing physical therapy. Here’s hoping we see her on the big screen again soon. [Huffington Post]

Our latest "Toddlers & Tiaras" muse. Watch »

It took me all of 10 seconds to fall madly in love with “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the “Toddlers and Tiaras” spin-off about Alana Thompson, the 6-year-old pageant hopeful known for her one-liners and love of Go-Go-Juice, and her self-described redneck family. While I was already enamored with Alana after seeing her on “Toddlers and Tiaras” last year — for being, essentially, the opposite of everything the pageant world wants their living dolls to be — but “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” sold me on the entire Thompson family. What Alana, June, Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, Chubbs, and Chickadee lack in traditional etiquette and higher education, they make up for in love, acceptance, and family values. Keep reading »

5 Reasons You’re Going To Love “Gallery Girls”

I’ll admit it. I was pretty skeptical of Bravo’s newest reality confection, “Gallery Girls.” Although I do love a good “Real Housewife” or two, it’s not exactly life-changing television. But “Gallery Girls” surprised me, after watching the pilot and fourth episode. The show follows seven girls, all trying to make their own way through the NYC art world. Some want to be photographers, others art sellers and some just aren’t quite sure. Sound familiar?

So here’s why you’re going to love it. Or at least why you have to catch the pilot, airing August 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and decide for yourself. Read more…

"I Pee Gold ... When I'm A Little Dehydrated."

America’s favorite flippered himbo, Ryan Lochte, proves he has a sense of humor about himself and the ability to read a teleprompter in this Funny Or Die video about peeing in pools. I’m a little nervous about his upcoming book, 50 Shades of Yellow, though. Sounds too kinky for me. On another note, where can I get one of those “JEAH!” hoodies? Need. [via Tres Sugar]

All The Things Michael Phelps Can Do With His 22 Olympic Medals

Michael Phelps must be running out of space for all 22 of his Olympic medals. Poor dude. Pleated Jeans came up with some ideas for alternative uses for all those medals. I vote for accessorizing with them. He could make a really fashion forward belt. [Pleated Jeans] [Art: Pleated Jeans]
