Last week, we asked you to share what book you’d download first if we gave you a Kindle, provided by Bravo. Our list of must-reads has multiplied enormously after reading your responses, but our favorite comment came from MSK:
I would download Pride and Prejudice (it’s a classic so I can download it for free — a working student can take all the help she can get!). It’s been my favorite book since I was old enough to read books that included words bigger then “see,” “Jane,” and “run.” There has never been another character like Elizabeth Bennett nor another fictional couple like Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I have read this book a dozen times (not to mention drooled over Colin Firth in the A&E adaptation like a hundred times), and will continue to read it over and over again. With a Kindle I would no longer need to worry about wearing out the pages!
Sure, it’s super pretty outside and you could be hiking, frolicking through meadows of spring flowers, or lying on the beach. But then you’d look like you’re stuck in a commercial for anti-depressants. I don’t recommend depression, but isn’t it nice to just sit in the dark sometimes, letting salty popcorn dissolve on your tongue and giving your brain over to a picture show? And this week, you can catch some love capers with “Date Night,” bond with rockers with “When You’re Strange,” get stressed out about what’s next with “After.Life,” break up the hard way with “Breaking Backwards,” experience San Fran gangster life with “La Mission,” or be glad you’re not a pregnant teenager staying with her dead boyfriend’s family with “The Greatest.” And don’t those sound better than being tan and happy?

This just in! Robert Pattinson has been cast to play Kurt Cobain in the new biopic “All Apologies.” R-Patz landed the role because Courtney Love—who has casting approval on the flick—wouldn’t have it any other way. “Robert has been calling and e-mailing her non-stop,” a insider told The Sun. “He is her number one choice to play Kurt.” So who will play Courtney? She is pulling hard for Scarlett Johansson, though obviously Lindsay Lohan would be the perfect choice with her bleached blonde hair, husky voice, and substance issues.
While many folks are probably up in arms about pretty boy Pattinson playing Kurt, we actually think that it’s great casting. Here are 10 reasons why. Keep reading »
And, sadly, we have yet another link between a reality TV show and a murder. Bruce Beresford-Redman is a well-known producer who’s worked on shows like “Pimp My Ride” and “Survivor,” and is currently working on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” He and his wife, Mónica, went on vacation to Cancun, Mexico, this week with their two children. On Tuesday, Bruce called the police to say that Mónica had gone out shopping the day before and had never come back. Yesterday, her body turned up in the sewer of the resort where they were staying, the Moon Palace. While Bruce has not been charged with anything and is not an official suspect, he has been held in Mexico for questioning as a “person of interest.” Keep reading »
It’s a concept only the dudes behind the giz hair gel scene in “There’s Something About Mary” could come up with. The Farrelly Brothers are hard at work on their latest flick—it’s untitled at the moment, but will be a collection of 17 short films. One of the films that started shooting this week has a pretty amazing cast—Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet. The concept of the short? Hugh and Kate are out on a first date—so far, so normal. Only, Hugh’s character has testicles that are located on his chin. Yes, on his face. And no one seems to notice besides Kate’s character, who for some reason doesn’t run? It sounds pretty out-there, but everything Kate touches is gold in our opinion, so we’ll give it a chance. Other shorts in the movie will star Gerard Butler, Naomi Watts, and Justin Long.

You’ve got to have a stone-cold heart to not love Shania Twain. And maybe that’s why Oprah gave the country singer her OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) show called “Why Not?” A statement from the network said, “The show will follow Twain as she begins her climb back to the top, a personal journey filled with risk, revelations and unexpected adventures.” After her bestie snagged her husband, Twain fell in love with her bestie’s ex-husband Frédéric Thiébaud and has been traveling the world with him and her son, posting videos on her website of them sky-diving in Florida, riding camels in Egypt, and bike riding in London. I’m still reeling from her gorgeousness in the “That Don’t Impress Me Much” video, so I don’t know if I can handle my jealousy for a half-hour show. [People]
But really, I’m actually legitimately excited for Oprah’s network—sounds like there are some pretty awesome things going down. Here’s what we know so far. Keep reading »
Thankfully, the evening news program “Dateline” has stepped in to keep a steady stream of spoiled-child dumbassery flowing freely! Friday at 9 p.m. (EST), “Dateline” will air a spot on the Hollywood “bling ring,” which is the group of Los Angeles teenagers — including Alexis Neiers, pre-reality show — who allegedly broke into the homes of actors and actresses to steal their clothes, money and jewelry. (You can read more about the Hollywood “bling ring,” and how they got busted, here.)
