Quotable: Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg Majorly Spoils Key Moment In “Breaking Dawn”

“The childbirth—all the scenes, I feel—should be on screen. Would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that.”

—Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter behind all three “Twilight” flicks, talks about how they plan to take out a few gory details from the childbirth scene in “Breaking Dawn.” Now, I know I’m the only person on the planet who hasn’t read the book—but thanks for ruining it, Melissa. [People]

Frisky Rant: Danielle Staub May Have A Point

I’ve had a couple of days to process the “unbeweavable” episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” that aired on Monday night. In case you missed it, it came complete with name calling, hair pulling, broken boots, dirty accusations, police reports, and of course, subsequent lawsuits. But believe it or not, I’m feeling mildly sympathetic toward Danielle Staub. Maybe all of her fears about being attacked were not unfounded after all? Keep reading »

Hope Lindsay Lohan Doesn’t Get Picked Up For Gun Posession, Too

On September 3rd, whether or not she’s still in jail, Lindsay Lohan will be appearing in Robert Rodriguez’s new flick, “Machete,” along with Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez and Steven Seagal. Here is Lindsay’s poster for the movie—provocative, no? Though, interestingly, she was edited out of the trailer when she received her jail sentence. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Michelle Duggar Of “19 Kids And Counting” Wins Mother Of The Year Award

Oh, dear. TLC’s resident brood sow “19 Kids and Counting” star Michelle Duggar has received a “Mother of the Year Award.” Perhaps she is a fine mother to her children, but she is most famous for having many of them — which is not in-and-of-itself a marker of good parenthood at all. It’s silly to equate the idea of being a “good mother” with a having good child-bearing hips. (I’m not saying having lots of kids automatically makes you a bad mom — I’m one of five kids, after all — so don’t kick up a fuss!) I wonder what kinda message this sends to mommies who feel stressed with only one or two kids. Keep reading »

ZOMG! Did You Watch The SHOCKING “Hills” Finale?!

Well, I didn’t! But I saw part of the after-show and then some clips online and CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, but it brazenly hinted that the reality show may have just been fake all along! What?! So, during the final scene, Brody Jenner is waving goodbye to a car carrying Kristen Cavallari to the airport, when the background scenery behind him — featuring the Hollywood sign — starts to move. And then you realize, Holy crap, it’s a set! The camera pans away and we see Brody standing among a television set being broken down by crew members; and that car carrying Kristen? Well, it’s still there — she exits, gives the Brodester a hug, as the crew cheers and fist bumps. And that’s a wrap! What does it all mean? Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From M.I.A. To Sparklehorse and Danger Mouse

The record you have been waiting for is here. And M.I.A.’s M/\Y/\ takes her whole thang higher. (Pronounced hi-ya.) Plus, Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse (R.I.P.) finally got out of crazy litigation to drop their ultimate super group record, Dark Night Of The Soul. This might just be the first and last time I say, “Thank you, lawyers!” But seriously, the record is so amazeballs. No label could suffocate its awesomeness. Also this week, Morcheeba and Sun Kil Moon let us down gently. So, get those headphones on, because this rainy Tuesday (in NYC at least) just got the perfect soundtrack. Keep reading »

The YMCA Changes Its Name, The Village People Get Mad

After 166 years as the Young Men’s Christian Association, the YMCA officially changed its name to “the Y” this week. I guess they realized that lots of women and folks of assorted religions were using the facilities? Although, now what are they going to do with all the old folks in the locker room? Obviously, this change has a big effect on one specific group of people—the Village People. “We are deeply dismayed by today’s announcement from the YMCA that they feel a name change and a rebranding are in order after 166 years,” the band wrote in a statement. “Some things remain iconic and while we admire the organization for the work they do, we still can’t help but wonder Y.” Badum-ching. Luckily, they’ll be performing the song as originally written on tour this summer, so that you can still do the fun making-letters-out-of-your-body thang. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Being A “Club Girl” Is Now A Profession

The tabloids are chock-full of insider information procured from vague sources. And while some anonymous sources are no doubt actually friends with a star, readers are still left wondering who these tattletale BFFs are. Enter “club girls,” a small squad of statuesque young ladies who are hired by tabloids to befriend celebs while out at the hottest night spots, and then report back with any scandalous info. Yes, modern journalism has hit another low, allowing these girls to call themselves journalists when their real job description is to trick celebrities into trusting them and then sell their stories to the writers of gossip rags.
