“Clarissa Explains It All” Coming To A TV Screen Near You

Happy unbirthday! (Unless of course it is actually your birthday.) TeenNick has announced that they will be bringing back some of our favorite TV shows involving plaid in a new programming block that will air nightly from midnight to 2 a.m. called “The ’90s Are All That.” The series in the block that has us most excited, naturally, is “Clarissa Explains It All,” the show where Melissa Joan Hart navigated wacky parents, a megalomaniacal brother and a crush on her skater neighbor, Sam, all while looking amazing in brightly colored DIY outfits. But we’re also pumped for “The Adventures of Pete and Pete,” the show about two brothers with the same name which featured the coolest tattoo on an underage character ever—Pete’s dancing mermaid. Oh, and “All That” will be returning too, which means we can scope Nick Cannon way before he met Mariah. In other words, sleepless nights just got a little less dismal. [EW] Keep reading »

Julie Taymor No Longer Directing “Spider-Man: The Musical”

Making fun of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”—the musical version of the classic comic book tale that, at $65 million, is the most expensive production in Broadway history—has become something of a blood sport here in New York. And this week brings the news that the play—which has injured multiple cast members and been almost universally panned by test audiences—is shutting down for several weeks for a major overhaul. Apparently, visionary director Julie Taymor is no longer sitting in the director’s chair. It’s unclear whether she quit in protest or was fired. “Taymor is out. She’s left the building,” a source said. Keep reading »

No Movie Is Safe From Becoming A Remake

Lately, we’ve been noticing that no movie from your childhood (or your parents’ for that matter) is safe from being remade. “Annie” is being rebooted with Willow Smith in the lead role and new songs by Jay-Z. Warner Brothers is currently working on a remake of “The Bodyguard,” the Whitney Houston classic. Kate Winslet recently rocked period garb for a reimagining of “Mildred Pierce.” Oh, and did we mention that “Dirty Dancing” is getting the remake treatment, too? Sometimes, remakes are a great idea. Other times—and let’s be honest, usually—we wish filmmakers would leave good enough alone. So, we decided to steal a play from New York Magazine and make an Approval Matrix of all the movie remakes. After the jump, the details on these movies. In the comments, sound off on any movies you think we’ve wrongly categorized. And let us know where you’d place the remakes we didn’t include.

Joan Rivers Waterboarded By Her Grandson


And they say kids today don’t watch the news. The amazing Joan Rivers took a moment to play with her grandson, Cooper, and his friends on her new show “Joan Knows Best?” And what game did they want to play? Waterboarding, of course! “We tie you up. We put this on your head and then we spill water on you,” Cooper explains. Joan finally agrees. “Lay her down on the grass of death,” yells Cooper. It’s no doubt the same sentiment some celebrities feel after Joan skewers them on “Fashion Police.” [PopEater] Keep reading »

Michaele Salahi Booted From “Celebrty Rehab” For Having No Addiciton

The lord giveth and taketh away. (Yeah, I pre-apologize for that intro line—it’s in poor taste.) Last week, we learned that Tareq and Michaele Salahi—the White House party crashers who ended up on “The Real Housewives of DC“—would be checking in to “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” for its new season along with Bai Ling, Michael Lohan, and (surprise!) Amy Fisher. But alas, Michaele has been sent home. Why? She apparently isn’t addicted to anything. Keep reading »

Willow Smith Is A 21st Century Girl


Willow Smith isn’t waiting for the sun to come out tomorrow. She has dropped her new video for “21st Century Girl,” which takes her to the desert, where she turns sand into a butterfly and runs with wolves. Well, until she pulls some buildings into place and peels away the desert to reveal a city street. I was admiring how amazing her yellow puff sleeve top looks with that red Galliano-esque skirt when I remembered that she is actually a 21st Century Girl—born on October 31, 2000. And then I just felt kinda old. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Avril Lavigne’s First Post-Brody Jenner Album

Confession: I love karaoking Avril Lavigne songs. I mean, “He was a sk8er boi/ she said see ya later boi?” The girl is obviously a genius. Okay, okay—in her defense, that was a song she penned at age 17 when everything seemed so complicated, even though it wasn’t really. Now, nine years later—after a divorce and a year dating Brody Jenner—I’m sort of curious to see what the Canadian rocker/pop star sounds like. Her new album still boasts tracks like “4 Real” that have me a little scared it’ll be more of the same, but I’m crossing my fingers that there will be a bit of growth on this new one. So consider this a recommendation with a heavy wink.
