It’s a beautiful summer day in Hollywood and the celebs are just waking up, yawning in their beds, blissfully unaware that the tabloids have smeared their lives all over their covers. Today there are baby bumps, drugs, breakups, and lots of gay things going town in Tabloidville. Luckily, we’re here to scan and condense it into delicious tabby soup. That sounded so wrong. Start slurping! Keep reading »
On Monday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” black sheep Danielle Staub attended a charity dinner at The Brownstone, the event facility owned and operated by the Manzo family. Caroline and Dina Manzo, of course, are fellow cast members on the hit Bravo show, and since the beginning they — along with Teresa Giudice and Jacquelina Laurina — have been at odds with Staub. Last season culminated in Teresa overturning a table and shouting that Danielle was a “prostitution whore,” the best grammatically incorrect insult, um, ever. Anyway, Danielle has been behaving super odd during this second season, seemingly continuing a “war” with the Manzos even though they seem genuinely bored by her antics. Danielle claimed to be scared of the Manzos and enlisted a parolee with a bad hairdo and a Hell’s Angel as part of her “entourage” for this charity event, which Danielle was clearly only attending to cause drama, not to actually raise money for a baby named Emanuela, who is sick with cancer. If Danielle Staub had any supporters following this week’s episode, people who think her intentions are good and not totally bats**t crazy, she won’t have any now that the people who were throwing the event are talking.

We are now less than two weeks away from the premiere of “True Blood
” season three, and after watching this promo I don’t know if I can make it. These two minutes are packed with some of the first sexy peeks at this season’s plot. Speaking of sexy, it looks like we might finally be rewarded with a steamy Sookie and Eric between-the-sheets session. The rest of the cast seems to have some raging hormones and issues of their own as well. Did I mention that Sookie and Eric might get it on? Yes? Keep reading »
MTV‘s newest reality show “Downtown Girls” debuted last night and finally we got to see for ourselves whether Glamour.com writer Shallon Lester and her pals are more or less annoying than “The Hills.”
What’s the verdict on “Downtown Girls”? It’s “Sex and the City“-tinged fluff full of model pretty women — but it’s a hell of a lot less awful than all of MTV’s other reality shows. And that counts for something … right? Keep reading »
In Kylie Minogue‘s new music video, “All the Lovers,” the pop star says all she wants to do is dance, but for Kylie that means floating on a giant mound of half-naked people pawing at each other and her. Maybe this is some sort of new dance? We’ll call it The Love Pile. Perhaps they were all inspired because Kylie herself is not wearing any pants in this video. Oh, and then a white horse shows up. It’s a little bit Victoria’s Secret, a little bit Spencer Tunick, and a little bit Greco-Roman orgy. Keep reading »
Back in 1985, cartoonist Alison Bechdel drew a “Dykes To Watch Out For” cartoon describing the three rules that govern whether or not she will see a movie:
- It has to have two women in it,
- Who talk to each other,
- About something besides a man.

OK, yes, I forgot to give you your weekly dose of what to watch yesterday. But have no fear—that had to do with me being lazy on the beach and was not at all a commentary on the television options for the week. Most scripted dramas are over for the season, which means get ready for lots and lots of reality TV. In addition to my new television obsession—”The OCD Project” (Thursdays, 10 p.m., VH1)—we are pumped that Aziz Ansari is hosting Sunday night’s “MTV Movie Awards.” And from the state that brought you “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and “Jersey Shore” comes a new series called “Jersey Couture,” which premieres tonight on Oxygen. After the jump, details and previews.

Our friends at The Gloss posted a blind item that has me begging for details:
“Which sexy CW star was fired from his previous high-profile gig following an ill-fated liaison with a network honcho’s daughter?”
My knowledge of CW stars begins and ends with “Gossip Girl,” but none of those guys had previous gigs that were high-profile. Someone on “One Tree Hill”? “Smallville”? “America’s Next Top Model”? (Nigel Barker, you cad!) If anyone’s got a better guess, tell us below. [TheGloss.com] Keep reading »
“There’s a whole recipe for how to make a Buffy. Take one cup Sarah Connor from the first ‘Terminator’ movie; one cup Ripley [from 'Alien']; three tablespoons of the younger sister in ‘Night of the Comet’; a few sprigs of ‘A Little Princess’—the book, not the movies; and a pinch of Jimmy Stewart for pain, because nobody does better pain. Bake those up. Once it’s cool, add a little Rosalind Russell from ‘His Girl Friday.’ All of this must be in a P.J.-Soles-in-Halloween crust. That’s very important.”
