“[The ring is] beautiful, and it’s real diamonds. Like 1.5 karats or something. The funny story about that is before I’d read the script, props had to measure me for a ring. So she came in and was, like, ‘I don’t know how to do this without giving anything away, but we still have to do it.’ I didn’t want to think about what it might mean. Until I read the script, I wasn’t believing anything.”
— One of our Celebs To Watch, Jessica Paré, might say she was just as surprised as you were that Don Draper proposed to his secretary, Megan. (Um, spoiler alert?) But the truth is that the “Mad Men” props department spilled the beans when they came by to measure her ring finger. [AMCtv.com] Keep reading »

Hey dudes, it’s Tues! Which can only mean one thing (well, unless it’s also Mardi Gras): new jams! This week Shakira is going “Loca”; Bo Burnham has got some words for us; Mt. Desolation is good company. And the Kings Of Leon rise and shine at Sundown. So, get those headphones on and let’s get into the groove after the jump! Keep reading »
Barack Obama is all about science. And on December 8th, he’ll be appearing on “Mythbusters,” the Discovery Channel show that debunks urban legends using elaborate scientific testing. (My fave episode answered this question: Will jumping in a falling elevator really save your life?) In Barack’s episode, they’ll be looking into whether Archimedes could have set fire to the Roman float using just a mirror in the sun.
We’re excited to see Obama on a great TV show. But this one is kind of random, no? After the jump, 10 more television appearances we’d like to see Obama make. Keep reading »
Mama grizzlies stick together. While Sarah Palin films her TLC reality show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” with Todd, Piper and her niece, McKinley, a real-life mama bear and her cubs emerge from the woods to catch salmon. But then another bear — clearly a Democrat — comes along and mama bear lays a fuzzy smackdown. “I love watching these mama bears,” Sarah says. “What I see in that is what a mom would do, too. Anything and everything, laying down her life for her kids.”
Next on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”? On a visit to the Wasilla dog pound, Sarah is charmed by an actual pitbull in lipstick. [Mediaite] Keep reading »
Recognize that pretty face from “Mad Men“‘s Sunday night season finale? That’s because she’s Cassandra Whitehead, who appeared on Cycle 5 of “America’s Next Top Model.” Cassandra infamously stormed off the show after Miss Tyra cut her long brown locks into a short ‘do. After appearing on “ANTM,” she went on to have parts in “Fast & Furious” and “One Tree Hill,” and won $500,000 on the game show “1 vs. 100.” Cassandra’s proof that the most successful “ANTM” alums aren’t always the ones who come out “on top.” After the jump, the most successful (and notorious) “ANTM” contestants. And tell us who your favorite is.
Last night’s “Dancing with the Stars” brought a very special surprise. Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas dancing in monkey suits while doing the jive to the theme song from my favorite old TV show, “The Monkees.” See the girl monkey who can’t quite keep up? Yeah, that’s Bristol. I wonder if Sarah Palin watched the performance and felt like she was back in Alaska, watching grizzly bears fight? [Newser] Keep reading »
It was only a matter of time — like, say, 20 years — before southern rap would inevitably pair itself off with ’90s Hawaiian shirt comedy “Weekend at Bernie’s.” This track from rappers I.S.A, “Movin’ Like Berney,” encourages listeners to dance like the film’s eponymous dead guy. Your move, Andrew McCarthy
