“Bridalplasty” Host Says Plastic Surgery Show Will Be “Cool,” “Exploitative”

MEMO:

TO: Shanna Moakler
FROM: The producers of “Bridalplasty”

We are super-psyched you are talking to the tabloids about something other than your dramz with Travis Barker. And we are happy you are plugging “Bridalplasty,” the new reality TV show you will host where brides-to-be compete in wedding-themed competitions and win plastic surgery as a prize, in OK! magazine. But we’d like to remind you, however, the first rule of extreme makeover shows is you don’t come right out and say it’s “exploitative.” That’s supposed to be on the DL! We are specifically referring to this quote: “Women will love it! … There are some good stories there, as well as some exploitative [ones].” Be careful saying stuff like that, Shanna: we would not want someone to think we take advantage of emotionally unstable women with body insecurities by putting them on television or anything. It’s best to just stick with quotes like, “It’s cool!” Next time, just talk up how every bride deserves a new nose for her big day, okay? [OK! Magazine] Keep reading »

If The Beatles Covered Lady Gaga


Usually when someone messes with The Beatles, I throw a fit. But this Beatles “cover” of Lady Gaga‘s “Telephone” — played by a Beatles cover band, I assume? — is so kickass that I wanna download it on my iPod. I’m pretty sure those green pants mean George Harrison gets to be Beyoncé. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Kanye Kills It On “Saturday Night Live”


Kanye West may be an ego-maniacal douchebag, but boy, did he redeem himself musically on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Performing “Power” (above) and “Runaway” (after the jump) on a glowing white stage, backed by over a dozen ballet dancers, Kanye killed it. Seriously, Mr. West, STFU and stick to what you’re good at — because when you do, you blow people away. See his other performance, after the jump… Keep reading »

An Ode To “The Flintstones” On Their 50th Anniversary


It has been 50 years since “The Flintstones” first premiered on ABC in 1960. It’s easy to forget about what a huge influence the Yabba-Dabba-Doo had on our existence, but those boneheaded cave-dwellers were the original gangsters of prime-time cartoons. Thirty years before we were quoting Homer Simpson, Fred Flintstone was our man with a plan. They graduated cartoons from Saturday morning to prime time! If it wasn’t for Hanna-Barbera’s contributions to society, we might have been forced to grow up and watch (gasp) un-animated shows, losing out on the genius that is “South Park” and “Family Guy.” And because it’s such a special time in history, we’re going to look back on everything “The Flintstones” have given us.

Trailer Park: “The Social Network,” “Let Me In,” “Freakonomics,” “Case 39,” “Barry Munday”

As we’re coming up on Halloween, the movie theaters are being flooded with horror movies. As if the world wasn’t a scary enough place, for the next month, you can sit in a dark room with strangers and watch the blood splatter!

Go out there and see a movie — at the very least it will remind you that life could be worse! Keep reading »

Lady Gaga & Katy Perry Want You To Keep Your Seat Belts Securely Fastened


Would you be more or less likely to pay attention to the flight safety instructions on an aircraft if the stewards were dancing to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry while doing it? Personally, I would have popped a Xanax by this point and be out cold. [via Crushable] Keep reading »

Anderson Cooper Announces A Daytime Show


Perhaps to lessen the blow of the fact that this is Oprah‘s last season, Anderson Cooper has announced that he is getting into the daytime television game next fall with a new show, which he’ll do in addition to “Anderson Cooper 360.” He said in a statement, “Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way.” And by ‘new way,’ we hope he means he’ll be just as hilarious as he was during his guest hosting spots on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” Check out the clip above where he thigh dances with Kelly Ripa.

Happy Birthday, Julie Andrews!

Happy 75th birthday to Julie Andrews. I don’t care how old she gets or how many parts she’s played, she will always be Mary Poppins to me. Here’s a little spoonful of sugar Julie Andrews style for you this Friday afternoon. Just remember: “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. Find the fun and SNAP! The job’s a game.” Thanks for the reminder Ms. Poppins! If only I could clean my apartment by snapping my fingers like that. I’d have a much better attitude about everything. Keep reading »
