The ultimate women’s entertainment fix – from new movies to reality TV to hot new music downloads.

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »

Jon Stewart Leading A March To Washington, And You’re Invited!

Jon Stewart wants to start a revolution—one dedicated to calming people down and ending the drawing of Hitler mustaches on people who aren’t Hitler. The best part? You can join him. Stewart recently announced on his show that he will be leading the “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington D.C’s National Mall on October 30th. “It’s real,” he promises. This “Million Moderate March” is Stewart’s effort to get the 80 percent of us that are politically unmoved to get the other 20 percent on both sides of the aisle to calm down, so we can all work on creating solutions, instead of shouting or doing nothing at all. So who is going to set aside their Devil’s Night to join the “Rally to Restore Sanity”? Me! [PopEater] Keep reading »

The “Real Housewives” That Bravo Evicted

The Salahis are finding themselves unwelcomed once again. Reports are saying that the couple have not been invited back to season two of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Bravo was hoping the attention surrounding the gatecrashing twosome would bring high ratings to the show, but now the network suspects that Michaele and Tareq are turning viewers off the series. I guess there is such a thing as too much self-promotion. [PopEater]

After the jump, other housewives who found themselves booted out when it was time for a contract renewal. Keep reading »

Behold, the poster for “Love and Other Drugs,” the flick starring Jake Gyllenhaal, as a womanizing pharmaceutical rep, and Anne Hathaway, as the woman who may be his match. These two are totally adorbs. Keep reading »

Princess Hijab, The French Graffiti Artist Who Draws Burqas On Subway Ads

This short film follows Princess Hijab, a graffiti artist who skulks around the Parisian subway system, scribbling burqas on commercial advertising with a black Sharpie. The Princess appears to be a woman, but like other street artists (Banksy, for example), the true identity is unknown to protect her from police. Keep reading »

Is “Hunger Games” The Next “Twilight”?

Though The Hunger Games has nowhere near the level of pop culture saturation as Twilight, the young adult trilogy is quickly gaining the same rabid fan base. But the similarities between the two fiction phenomenons end about there. The Hunger Games books present a world much darker than Stephenie Meyers’ land of glittery vampires and sullen girls. The story revolves around a post-apocalyptic society controlled by a greedy government working from a place called the Capitol. Keep reading »

8 More Changes “American Idol” Should Make To Shake Things Up

I am panicking about what “American Idol” is about to become. First, we find out that Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres are being replaced by J.Lo and Steven Tyler, who I thought was in rehab. And now they tell us that they are changing the audition process, too. The show announced that they are now accepting online submissions of which a few of the best will be chosen to move directly to L.A. Arrghhh! Too many changes at once! [Us Weekly]

But while they’re at it, here are some more suggested changes to shake things up. Keep reading »

Fall TV Guide: “Top Chef Just Desserts” Satisfies A Sweet Tooth

So, technically, I should have written a post yesterday about “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” when the show premiered. But Bravo plays its shows on repeat ad infinitum, so you’ll still be able to catch the premiere. One of the few depressing things about “Top Chef“—besides the fact that you can’t reach into the television and pull out the food—is that the chefs generally suck at desserts. And nothing is sadder than seeing a judge take a bite of a beautiful dessert only to have them spit it out in their napkin because it’s so salty. So I’m thrilled to watch a show where pastry chefs duke it out in the kitchen.

“For Colored Girls”: Watch The Trailer, See The Film

My mind was silent, but my heart was racing as I watched the trailer for Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls,” a film based on Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. The trailer seems so powerful that I no longer have any doubt that Perry handled this acclaimed work with care. Oh why can’t Nov. 5 be tomorrow so I can see this important film already? I’m going to read the original one more time to prepare myself. Will you see “For Colored Girls”? Keep reading »

“Bridalplasty” Brides Plan Weddings And Compete For Plastic Surgery Prizes

E! has tapped into women’s two most important goals in life — looking pretty and getting hitched — for a new reality show called “Bridalplasty.” Wedding planning and plastic surgery, what more could a gal want? Brides will make a “wish list” of plastic surgery procedures they desire before the most important day of their lives. The winner of a wedding-themed challenge, like writing vows or planning a honeymoon, gets to choose one procedure from her wish list as her prize with the results revealed at the beginning of the next show. The lucky grooms of these well-balanced ladies will not see the results until they lift the veil at the altar right before they exchange “I dos!” Because, really, if a man is going to latch onto the ol’ ball-and-chain for life, at least it should be pert, unwrinkled, and incapable of displaying emotion? Amirite? Keep reading »
