The World Cup is over. Which means—sniff, sniff—there’s a serious hole in our
pants television hearts. So what should we fill it with? Luckily, there’s lots of good stuff happening on the small screen this week, from the big fight on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” to the series finale of “The Hills.” Plus, check out new shows “Covert Affairs” and “Mary Knows Best,” which follows a psychic mom and her family. Hawt. Keep reading »
Admittedly, I’m not the most devout “Gossip Girl” viewer. But, I don’t remember anybody getting preggo last season, do you? Did Vanessa have a bun in the oven? Is Dan paying for NYU by becoming a manny? And how fake does that plastic baby doll look? [7/12/10, Astoria, NY] Keep reading »
Back in 2007, “Bachelor” viewers were shocked when lame-oid Brad Womack decided not to choose either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas in the final episode. Uh, didn’t he get that memo about the point of the show? DeAnna was totally heartbroken, but picked herself up and became “The Bachelorette.” Only she and her final choice—Jesse Csincsak—didn’t work out, either.
Now, DeAnna has found love for realz. And oddly enough, it happened because of “The Bachelor.” One of DeAnna’s good friends is Holly Durst, a contestant on “The Bachelor” who was let go by Matt Grant. (Bizarre side note: she also dated Jesse.) Holly later got together with Michael Stagliano, who tried to win over Jillian Harris on “The Bachelorette.” Holly and Michael decide to set up DeAnna with Michael’s twin, Stephen, and—shocker—it worked. DeAnna is currently home in Georgia, planning her wedding to Stephen, which will apparently be going down very soon. Before she left for the trip, Stephen tweeted, “The love of my life leaves me today to go home to Georgia : ( .” [Radar]
There’s something oddly inspiring about seeing someone who was crushed on “The Bachelor” find love in real life. After the jump, other folks who went from heartbroken to giddily happy in a very short time. Keep reading »
During its first season, “Glee” dedicated episodes to Madonna and Lady Gaga and, hey, they were two of the funnest episodes so far. So Ryan Murphy is hoping to make mega-pop-star lightning strike again. After months of rumors, it is official: the gang will be doing a Britney Spears-themed episode. Personally, I think this is awesome. I would love to see Sue Sylvester take on “I’m a Slave 4 U,” or to see Rachel emote to either Finn or Jesse St. James that they’re “Toxic.” Not to mention that Britney herself could make a guest appearance. After all, her role on “How I Met Your Mother” as Abby, the receptionist in love with Ted, got huge ratings and essentially cleared the way for her “Circus” comeback.
But this has got me wondering — is “Glee” gonna ever give a male legend an episode’s worth of love? Wouldn’t a Prince, Lionel Richie, or David Bowie episode be amazing? Or they could even pick a classic band—might I suggest The Cure or The Clash? Who would you like to see get a full episode on “Glee”? Keep reading »
Since going solo from The Killers, easy-on-the-eyes lead singer Brandon Flowers has released the first single, “Crossfire,” off his forthcoming album, Flamingo, due out Sept. 14, and his costar in the video is the superhuman hottie Charlize Theron. While pretty Flowers sits around looking mopey and feeling kidnapped, Theron the Amazon slays attacking ninjas without even looking at them, tosses about some deadly throwing stars, and steals away with her man-booty. At one point, you expect a Spider-Man kiss between the two, but, sadly, it doesn’t happen. Maybe they couldn’t afford Charlize’s kissing-on-film rate? Tragically, we may never know how this love affair turns out if they don’t make a sequel. [Just Jared] Keep reading »

I guess it’s been a crazy heatwave in the rest of the country, while it’s a chilly 64 degrees out here in Los Angeles. So, while I go to movies two to three times a week because I’m addicted to them, you guys are probably desperate for an escape from the heat. But I shouldn’t have to tempt you with air-conditioning and delicious buttery popcorn to get you to a movie. Some of this week’s movies are decades in the making and deserve some attention! There are a lot of slightly to very terrifying films on the roster, including “Predators,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” and “[REC] 2″ and there are two slightly less scary, more hilarious movies with “Winnebago Man” and “Despicable Me,” which I totally thought came out last week. Whoops! Keep reading »
