Remember that drinking game “I Never” that you probably played in college after a few shots of vodka or a 6-pack of Zima? Well, I miss it, and I want to play it with you right now (no Zima necessary … although if you have some vodka on hand, no one’s judging). I’ll start, and in the comments you can list a few things that you “have never.” After the jump, five things I never. Keep reading »

The cast of “The Breakfast Club,” minus Emilio Estevez and John Hughes (who died recently), got together on Monday night for a screening to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary. Ally Sheedy even brought her 16-year-old daughter to watch it with her. Wait. Has it really been 25 years since “The Breakfast Club” came out? I may be getting old, but this movie never will. It just so perfectly embodies the timeless quality of being a teenager. Don’t worry, we won’t forget about you. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Last night’s season premiere of “Glee” went by fast. Too fast, if you ask me. When the scenes from next week popped up, I was confused because I thought I’d only been watching for half an hour. We met Shannon Beiste, the new football coach and embodiment of the stereotypical female gym teacher, who is gunning to get her hands on both the Cheerios’ and New Directions’ budgets. We met Sam Evans, the new football star who rocked out to “Billionaire.” And we met Sunshine, who vocally battled Rachel with Lady Gaga/Beyonce‘s “Telephone” in the bathroom. But will the latter two be joining glee club? Doesn’t look that way—Vocal Adrenaline snags Sunshine while Sam just wants to play football.
But, we want more. MORE. So after the jump, some spoilers for the rest of the season. Keep reading »
Normally, I am not a sitcom girl. Something about the “set-up, set-up, joke” pacing has never worked for me. Not to mention the fact that 80 percent of sitcom plots are generated by one character not telling another character something and hijinx ensuing, whereas if they just said, “Hey, I broke the lamp,” the whole plot would fall on its face. Lame!
Of course, there are sitcoms that do do it for me. “How I Met Your Mother.” “Arrested Development.” “Community.” “Modern Family.” “30 Rock.” And I’m hoping to add “Better With You” to the list. Keep reading »
The first two episodes of “Hellcats
,” the new show based on my book Cheer!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders
, were all about the ladies—Marti (Aly Michalka) and Savannah (Ashley Tisdale
). But in tonight’s episode, we’re going to get the back story on Lewis Flynn (played by Robbie Jones), the Hellcats’ star base who, as we’ll find out, was once a Lancer University star football player. Keep reading »
At first glance, this 1990 track by rockers Extreme seems like a really sweet love song. But then you start thinking about it — what is “more than words to show you feel that your love for me is real”? A blow job? Anal? OK, fine, maybe I’m just a cynic. Keep reading »
If there were a competition this week of which gossip mag is the glossiest, People would easily win. I am pretty sure they shellacked each copy of this week’s issue before sending it to the stores. Unfortunately, the power to blind your readers doesn’t speak for the dirt you got inside. So after the jump take a peek at which tabloid dishes out the best gossip to feed your guilty pleasure.

JJ Abrams is pretty much a television god. He’s the genius who brought us the butt-kicking female CIA operative of “Alias” and the mind-bending intensity of “Lost.” So suffice it to say that there’s a lot of buzz surrounding “Undercovers,” his new series that premieres tonight. It’s about a pair of former CIA agents who’ve married, retired and started a catering company. They are called back into action to find a missing fellow CIA officer—whom the wife used to date.
