Girl On Girl: Can Someone Tell GLAAD 50 Cent Isn’t Worth It?

Someone needs to tell the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) that 50 Cent isn’t worth the time it takes to call out his bigotry. And he certainly doesn’t deserve the effort required to launch a full-fledged campaign against him.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, 50 Cent took to Twitter last week and, in an angry tirade against Perez Hilton, dissed the entire LGBT crowd. He wrote: “Perez Hilton called me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his but still made me feel better. ” After this Tweet about women, he was already heading to the top of my list of “People I’d Like To Meet … And Knock Out,” and after this one, he took the #1 slot.

Extremely Thin Girl Cast — And Then Cast Off — “America’s Next Top Model”

Before Cycle 15 of “America’s Next Top Model” even began, much fuss was made about Ann, a tall and gawky contestant with the most narrow waist in the world. But after last night’s episode, it’s clear that the model to truly be concerned about is Anamaria, 19, who, at 5’10″ and 110 lbs., thinks she needs to be “leaner” and is on a “calorie-restricted diet.” Though Tyra and crew cast the beautiful but extremely underweight and sinewy blonde on the show — after seeing her in a bathing suit during casting, mind you — her thinness became a strike against her in last night’s episode, as the models were photographed in barely any clothes. I, for one, found the whole thing extremely uncomfortable — should Anamaria have been cast in the first place? Did Tyra and the producers have an obligation to intervene? And — SPOILER ALERT! — did they do a disservice to her and the viewers by eliminating her from the competition as soon as they “realized” her thinness was a problem and that it reflected badly on them?

David Schwimmer Directs A Movie About A Rape

When I heard that David Schwimmer had directed a movie premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, I assumed it would be a humorous documentary about paleontologists or a romantic comedy about a guy named Russ who’s in love with a woman named Bachel. But I was surprised to see that Schwimmer’s movie is neither of the above. In fact, “Trust” is about maybe the last topic I would’ve guessed Schwimmer would be interested in—rape. Keep reading »

Quotable: Aly Michalka Was Initially Skeptical About Auditioning For “Hellcats”

“It’s funny because I didn’t even originally read the script. It was called ‘Cheer’ and I thought, ‘What the hell? I’m not doing that!’ I called my agent, who I love, but was like, “Dude, what is going on here? You know I am fighting stereotypes!” I don’t want to be the pretty, preppy girl that most people see me as. Then I sat down and was literally shocked at how good the script was. I really wanted to be Marti, I was immediately attracted to her spirit, her sarcasm and the fact she was this little fighter. But I assumed the studio would want me as Savannah because in the script she’s a blonde, preppy Texas cheerleader. Thankfully they saw me for Marti.”

—Aly Michalka of “Hellcats,” the new CW show based on my book, Cheer!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders, talks about how she was initially skeptical about auditioning for a show about cheerleading. So glad she came around. Make sure to watch the show’s second episode tonight at 9 p.m. (EST) on The CW. It’s on right after “America’s Next Top Model.” [NY Post] Keep reading »

I’m Too Distracted To Say Anything Important About Angelina Jolie And Johnny Depp’s “The Tourist”


Angelina Jolie! Johnny Depp! The trailer for their movie “The Tourist” is out and, dudes, I dunno, you would think I would be all about this movie because, hello, Johnny Depp, but I am distracted. Distracted by Angelina’s weird accent. Where is she supposed to be from? Distracted by Johnny’s oddly bloated face. And that beard. Ick. Distracted by the fact that I am not distracted by an overwhelming sexual desire for Johnny Depp. Just distracted. Keep reading »

Who Is Prince Poppycock?

Is anyone else miffed about how a baroque drag clown made it to the season finale of “America’s Got Talent”? By day, he’s a humble aspiring performer, John Quale, who works in a metal shop. By night, he transforms into his alter ego, Prince Poppycock, who sings opera-inspired songs in elaborate hair and makeup. I don’t get it. But America seems to. You can’t make this stuff up. Watch out Lady Gaga—Prince Poppycock may be prancing your way. Keep reading »

Meet Sir Patrick, The Leprechaun Hoarder

I didn’t think it was possible for “Hoarders” to get any better than it was last season. Wrong! I was catching up on a few episodes from season two and they’ve taken the show to a whole new level—they’ve found an entire family of hoarders! But no one has blown the lid off my head like Sir Patrick, who just goes by Sir. He’s a minister, spiritual healer, and self-proclaimed leprechaun who calls his home Camelot. A few more things you need to know about Sir … he drives with a life-sized porcelain doll sitting shot gun in his car and that braid that you see him wearing is fake. I also got the impression that he may be a pedophile when he started crying about the little girl next door who passed away and how his collection of 500 dolls is to commemorate her. Noooooooo! Watch the full clip of Sir Patrick here. I highly recommend you watch the entire episode and the entire season. Nothing has ever motivated me to clean my apartment more. Keep reading »
