Newsflash! Conan O’Brien has announced the name of his new show, which will be debuting on TBS on November 8th. Apparently, he did not take our suggestion of “Coco’s Fun Hour.” Instead, he went for the very simple “Conan.” However, he told New York magazine that this was not his first choice. “I wanted one word that captured my essence, and ‘Oprah‘ was already taken,” he explained.

I finally got to watch “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion, part one. Holy crap! I still can’t believe there’s more to come. No wonder Teresa is allegedly demanding that producers double her salary. Being on that show is like going into a war zone.
There’s so much to discuss! Like, for starters, why were they talking in secret NJ code the whole time? It was a full hour of trying to decipher the many meanings of the word “bitch,” the tenor of each raised eyebrow and the shade of angry behind each guttural growl. After the jump, we investigate the meaning behind Danielle’s comment about Teresa’s “nephew” and all the Dina drama. Keep reading »
Apparently, Bravo wants to make it so that you’re never able to do anything but watch “The Real Housewives.” In addition to the Orange County, New York, Atlanta, New Jersey, and DC incarnations of the show, they have a new entry in the franchise starting on October 14. The city of choice? Beverly Hills. The houses are enormous, the jewels are over-the-top blingy, and the kids are insanely pampered with $50K birthday parties.
Out of all the crazy fan products out there, this “Twilight” toilet decal is among the more deranged we’ve seen. (Seriously, the bathroom is a place where you leave all relationships at the door.) But, for “New Moon” die-hards, they can now go pee with Robert Pattinson staring them right in the ass (or, if you stick him on the inside of the lid, guys will go full-frontal).
We were going to end this post by making a joke about how people who deck out their toilet might as well just make their bathrooms completely “Twilight”-themed. Until we realized that, yup, you can get shower curtains, hand towels, and even toilet paper in the drama’s theme. Images after the jump. [GalleyCat/Mediabistro] Keep reading »
If life imitated art for the cast of “90210,” then that would be a catty, messed-up mix of individuals. Luckily, star Jessica Lowndes is picking the most productive part of her character, Adrianna, to emulate: her music career. In a recent interview, Lowndes said that in the next season, Adrianna will be all about the music. Which works well for Jessica because she just spent her summer working on an album. Lowndes traveled to London, New York and Italy to record and her first single, “Falling in Love,” is set for an October 25th release date. [People]
Lowndes has competition, though. Several other TV stars have current or upcoming releases as well. Keep reading »
It’s T-T-T-Tuesday! And if you like chicks who rock, then you’re going to be super psyched because the badass sisters of Heart have finally released new jamz. It’s quite possibly the best album name ever too: Red Velvet Car. That’s a whole lot I want! Also, Jenny Lewis and her boyfriend, Johnny Rice, make beautiful music together, and for once I’m not trying to use that as a double entendre. Plus, Radiohead drummer Philip Selway goes solo. So, get those headphones on because we’re gonna get into the groove after the jump! Keep reading »
Movie lovers are feeling itchy and checking for bites now that it has been reported that several movie theaters in Manhattan and the home to the Toronto Film Festival have been plagued with bedbugs. But movie executives are feeling fine and think they can turn this recent scourge of annoying insects into cinema gold. A shelved 2004 screenplay about burrowing bedbug-like killers seeking blood from a small town is now in production talks once again. Meanwhile, the rest of us are perplexed at why anyone would want to relive this all-too-real infestation. Just thinking about it makes us squirm. [Empire] Keep reading »
