Trailer Park: “Predators,” “Winnebago Man,” “Despicable Me,” “The Girl Who Played with Fire”

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 »

This Miley Cyrus Spoof Is A Real Gas


I don’t know about you, but I think “Farting In The U.S.A.” is way more entertaining than Miley Cyrus‘ actual “Party In The U.S.A” video. Thank you, DJ Timbo, for this fartastic ditty. Back-end blow-out? Bottom burp? A belching cloud? Bwahahah! Fart jokes are always funny. Always. [BuzzFeed]

Quotable: Bethenny Frankel’s Wedding Planner Explains How He Made It Happen

“I’ve never planned a wedding in four weeks, so I think short of putting Dixie cups on the table, we did a fabulous job. I was very pleased with it and I think viewers have seen all the hard work and now they’re going to see the pay-off. … I called [the Four Seasons] 20 times a day and literally was begging them. How we got it, I still to this day am not sure how or why they said yes. They did, that’s all I care about. After that, I was like, ‘Fine. The world could crumble down around me. I could care less. I got her venue.’ … For all the times that Bethenny threatened me, Cookie, her dog, took the action.”

—Shawn Rabideau, aka Bethenny Frankel‘s wedding planner who looks disturbingly like Buster Bluth, talks about how he pulled off Bethenny’s dream wedding in 30 days [PopEater] Keep reading »

“Vampires Suck” Looks Like It … Sucks


I’m still reeling from the atrocity that was “Date Movie,” but now Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg are back to make fun of “Twilight” and all the other fangy movies and TV shows with the flick “Vampires Suck.” I’m not sure why they wasted all that production value on churning out these movies. But even more so, I’m annoyed at how out of control they’ve gotten. Is it really necessary to parody like 40 movies at once and insert a zillion pop culture references? What does “Alice in Wonderland” have to do with vampires? And why do the actors look more like the actors from “Twilight” than the actors from “Twilight” look like themselves? I’ll admit that the Black Eyed Peas joke made me chuckle, but it just seems silly to parody a movie that is already so ridiculously silly half the time. That paper-cut scene actually happened! That’s not parody. That’s just mimicking. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Tonight Is The Night Bethenny Pees In The Bucket!


Tonight is the big night on “Bethenny Getting Married?” Yes, we want to see how the wedding unfolds, which housewives are invited, and what they’re wearing. But what we really, really want to see is the scene we’ve been looking forward to all season—when Bethenny pees in a bucket in her wedding dress. “How many minutes from now until I can pee?” she asks her wedding planner. “Maybe 35 minutes,” he responds. Bethenny freaks. “The baby’s head is on my bladder,” she says. “The bathroom is exactly where the guests are. In order for me to pee, I have to walk through my guests in my wedding dress. I can’t walk through the guests, ‘Hey everyone, just stepping to the loo.’ Let me just lift my leg and then walk down the aisle.” The solution? Watch it above. I would’ve driven the girl to the nearest fast food restaurant or bar, but hey, that’s just me. Keep reading »

“Put A Ring On It” Kind Of Gives Me The Sads


A reader sent me a link to the pilot episode for a new web series on weTV.com called “Put A Ring On It,” a show that covers real-life, over-the-top marriage proposals. “I think you will really like this one,” she wrote, “a guy calls a team of proposal experts to help him freeze time for his proposal.” Intrigued, I watched the clip, but I can’t say I share the same enthusiasm as the reader who sent it to me. Sure, I love a good proposal story as much as the next person, but there’s something a bit icky and disingenuous about turning what should be an intimate moment into entertainment for other people (says the girl who’s watched every season of “The Bachelor/ette”). We aren’t talking about a proposal that happens to be videotaped and slapped on YouTube; this is a real production with a team of “experts,” including a stylist, a techie and a relationship guru, as well as producers, and multiple cameras. And while there’s certainly nothing wrong with a big production, in this case the sentiment seems to get lost. Maybe the guy was just nervous — he’s not only proposing, after all, he’s performing a role … for a show — but where’s his excitement? Where’s the love? I guess I’m just not feeling it for “Put A Ring On It.” Are you? Keep reading »

Daughter Wants “Artsy” Footage Dad Filmed Of Her Breasts Out Of NYU’s Archives

When Emma Tamburlini was 11 years old, her father, the late Pop artist Larry Rivers, began videotaping her and her sister every six months, naked or topless, and talking about their budding breasts. He edited the footage into a 45-minute film about his daughters called “Growing.” Rivers planned to show “Growing” as part of an exhibition, but his wife, Clarice, who appears in the film with his other teenage daughter, Gwynne, stopped him. At 16 years old, Emma became anorexic. “It wrecked a lot of my life actually,” she says of her father’s filming.

Today, Emma Tamburlini is 43 years old and attempting to stop New York University from including “Growing” in an archive of her father’s artwork. NYU purchased all of Larry Rivers’ work from the Larry Rivers Foundation, which has refused in the past to destroy the tapes at Emma’s request. After buying the archive from the Larry Rivers Foundation for an undisclosed price, NYU has only pledged to keep “Growing” private throughout the daughters’ lifetimes but is still discussing how the matter should be handled. Emma Tamburlini and her mother believe the films should be returned to the family. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Auditioning To Be A Disney Princess Helped Me Find My Inner Girly Girl

Disneyland photo

I was never the little girl who dreamed of being a princess. While other kids dressed up in pink chiffon and glitter, I fashioned three-piece suits out of garbage bags and pretended to be a lawyer defending my Babar doll in a custody dispute. So when I got the chance to audition to be a Disney Princess at Disney Hong Kong, it wasn’t about channeling some childhood fantasy. I knew I would be faking it. Or so I thought. Keep reading »
