Catherine Zeta-Jones has apologized after her Tony win for Best Actress in “A Little Night Music.” Jones isn’t sorry that screen actors swept the awards, but instead for the crassness of her acceptance speech. If you didn’t see it, the speech was a normal mix of surprise, modesty and frantic name listing, while trying to beat the walk-off music. As the orchestra began to swell, she blurted out to hubby Michael Douglas, “See that man over there? He’s a movie star, and I get to sleep with him every night.” Keep reading »

We’d like to think we had something to do with Isaiah Mustafa‘s fast rise to fame. I mean, we did interview him back when he was simply that “Old Spice guy.” But let’s face it, Isaiah’s comedic delivery and good looks are what got him noticed. NBC has inked a talent deal with Isaiah that will most likely land him on one of the network’s sitcoms. And he says NBC was a natural fit for him. “I grew up in that ‘Cosby Show,’ ‘Family Ties’ era, and kept that going even through college with ‘Seinfeld’ and ‘Friends,’ ” he said. “To me, they controlled comedy and dictated my life on Thursday nights. And I think that’s my strength, doing comedy.”
Big things are happening for Isaiah, indeed. Not only will he appear on the silver screen and the small screen soon, but he also will be featured in another Old Spice commercial, which is set to air in the next few months. [Variety via CNN] Keep reading »
Oh, joy: HBO is developing a comedy about a young woman’s quest for an orgasm, based on the memoir Thanks For Coming: One Young Woman’s Quest For An Orgasm, by Mara Altman. To be completely honest with you, I didn’t get very far into Thanks For Coming because I have a queasy stomach reading about the human body. But the book — and presumably the show — tells how Altman (the daughter of sexually liberated parents) lost her virginity at 17 and slept with a bunch of guys, but had still never experienced “the big O.” In her quest for an orgasm, she visited an “orgasm commune” and masturbated for doctors inside an MRI machine. “I’m very excited about the prospect of HBO adapting my book for a comedy series,” Altman, a former staff writer for The Village Voice, told Deadline Hollywood. “It’s not everyday that a dysfunctional vulva gets to move out of marginalization and into the limelight.” [Deadline Hollywood] Keep reading »
For a mere $1.095 million you can reside in the house where “Real Housewife of New Jersey” Danielle Staub leads her pathetic existence. Even though the house is “luxury” by normal standards, you couldn’t offer me all the Scooby snacks in the world to set foot in there. Even if I could actually afford it. A few reasons why after the jump. Keep reading »
Last night, “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl showed the true level of his crazy, repeating the phrase “I’m here to protect and guard your heart” 90,000 times and getting an ugly tattoo on his wrist to symbolize his intentions. During their one-on-one date, Ali questioned Kasey’s sincerity. We, on the other hand, totally believe that he is this in love with a girl he barely knows, and thus we are questioning his sanity. Which brings us back to the age-old question—how do “Bachelorette” producers vet the men?
Luckily, Jesse Csincsak—the guy “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas picked in season four—has teamed up with Radar to reveal the whole process. Keep reading »
Just as we suspected! Bravo officially confirmed today that Michaele Salahi, one of the White House party crashers, will star on “The Real Housewives of D.C.,” debuting August 5. Michaele, a blond socialite straight out of Central Casting, and her husband, Tareq Salahi, grabbed headlines internationally when they breached security at President Obama‘s first official state dinner. It turns out Bravo cameras were following the couple that night for the “Real Housewives” TV show. (The Salahis insist they were invited to the event). It was an embarrassment for the White House and Obama’s Social Secretary Desiree Rogers later stepped down. But no matter! Crazy people make for entertaining TV and that’s what matters, right? [People] Keep reading »
Lord have mercy, The Situation has released a “rap” song. Titled “The Situation,” the verdict is clear — he should stick to fist-pumping on the boardwalk.
Alas, this “Jersey Shore” juicehead isn’t the only reality star with musical aspirations. Who could forget Countess LuAnn DeLesseps from “The Real Housewives of NYC,” who recently released her single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”? (We’d prefer to forget about “Tardy For The Party” entirely.)
After the jump, I generously sacrifice my eardrums to investigate which reality show single sucks the hardest. Keep reading »
If you weren’t following my “Bachelorette” liveblog
last night, than allow me to recap the best ZOMG moment on the show thus far. After bachelor Kasey Kahl was denied a rose at the end of his one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky (though he wasn’t sent packing) because she felt he wasn’t being completely sincere, he felt he needed to do something BIG to prove himself. His off-tune singing came off as kind of creepy; his constant declarations that he was there to “protect and guard her heart” weren’t getting through to her — how to answer her call for him to just be himself? By getting a tattoo of course! Keep reading »
The “Lost In Translation”, “Marie Antoinette”, and “Virgin Suicides” director/screenwriter Sofia Coppola has polished off another gem: “Somewhere.” Stephen Dorff plays a disaffected A-list actor, Elle Fanning is his 11-year-old daughter, and Phoenix did the score. Dang, I would have paid $12 to see the trailer alone! Dec. 22 cannot come soon enough. Keep reading »
