“There’s a virtual party going on right here, a celebration to last throughout the years. So bring your TV smarts and your laughter too. And Bravo’s gonna celebrate this party with you. C’mon now!” That’s enough Kool and the Gang, but what I’m alluding to is the new Bravo Talk Bubble, a site that hosts a virtual viewing party during some of the network’s popular shows, like “The Real Housewives of New York City” and “Top Chef.” You can log into Twitter and other social media outlets to vent your frustration at the Countess or tell Jill to get over her issues with Bethenny.
WIN THIS! One lucky winner will be able to get their Bravo fix even when they’re not in front of a TV or computer screen. We’re giving away a Kindle from Bravo. You’ll be able to read your favorite Bravo cast members’ books, like Jill Zarin’s Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love, while on the go. This way you’ll never miss a Bravo moment. But you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us what would be the first book you’d download and why by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 8. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner on Friday, April 9. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

“Mad Men” takes care of their own. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Elisabeth Moss will be entered as a “best supporting actress” nominee for the Emmys so that January Jones can be nominated in the “best lead actress” category all by her lonesome. Sources tell THR that a “best lead actress” Emmy has eluded Jones twice before and since the Emmys allows candidates to submit for their own categories, the folks behind “Mad Men” want to give Jones her best chance. Bummer for Elisabeth Moss, though! She might be a frontrunner for the Emmys’ “best supporting actress” category, but still, this is how catfights get started.
But can someone tell us the really important information here: What about Christina Hendricks?! [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
It’s Easter and Passover weekend, so if you’re religious, you’re probably hoarding Easter eggs or subsisting on matzo. I like to pretend that I am both Jewish and Christian, so my diet involves melted Cadbury eggs over almond macaroons. I’m for sure going to hell. But since there’s still time for us to be forgiven for our many sins, why not take a break this weekend to go see a movie? There’s not really a consistent theme with this week’s movies. If you’re feeling high school hormonal, go see “The Last Song”; if you’re cursing your God, look for “Clash of the Titans”; if you just got scorned by a man, “Vincere” and “Bluebeard” would both work in opposite ways; and if you’re sick of your own family, spy on a different one with “The Thorn in the Heart.” Keep reading »
If there ever were a moment to speed up time, now would be it. I need June 11 to get here stat because that’s the day “The A-Team” movie premieres. I rolled my eyes when I heard a 2010 version of the hit show was in the works. But when I saw the cast — Liam Neeson as Col. John “Hannibal” Smith, Bradley Cooper as Lt. Templeton “Faceman” Peck, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson as Sgt. Bosco “B.A.” Baracus, and Sharlto Copley as Capt. “Howling Mad” Murdock — I thought this could be good. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, I know it’s going to be great. It has everything a girl could want in an action flick: rebellion against the military, creative prison breaks, and things that go boom. And looking at “The A-Team” poster above, I really think the actors capture the original characters rather well. Check out the trailer after the jump and tell me what you think. Keep reading »
Rejoice all, because lesbians are hitting reality TV. No, “The Real Housewives” franchise didn’t pick them up, but Showtime is doing a reality series called “The Real L Word” based on the network’s “The L Word,” which followed a group of hot gay women in West Hollywood. The big question: will the reality version be as good as the scripted version? Answer: it could be even better. After the jump, meet the cast. Keep reading »

We here at The Frisky are big Janelle Monae fans. She’s got a style and sound that’s indisputably all her own. Her latest video, “Tightrope,” is no exception. It’s Beyonce meets Lady Gaga meets Rihanna meets Little Richard meets Lil’ Kim — or something like that. Clocking in at a solid five minutes, the video takes place at the “Palace of the Dogs” insane asylum, where dancing is prohibited on account of its magical qualities. We recommend joining Janelle by standing up in your cubicle and shaking a leg or two. TGIF! [YouTube] Keep reading »
