HBO Developing Comedy About One Woman’s Quest For An Orgasm

Oh, joy: HBO is developing a comedy about a young woman’s quest for an orgasm, based on the memoir Thanks For Coming: One Young Woman’s Quest For An Orgasm, by Mara Altman. To be completely honest with you, I didn’t get very far into Thanks For Coming because I have a queasy stomach reading about the human body. But the book — and presumably the show — tells how Altman (the daughter of sexually liberated parents) lost her virginity at 17 and slept with a bunch of guys, but had still never experienced “the big O.” In her quest for an orgasm, she visited an “orgasm commune” and masturbated for doctors inside an MRI machine. “I’m very excited about the prospect of HBO adapting my book for a comedy series,” Altman, a former staff writer for The Village Voice, told Deadline Hollywood. “It’s not everyday that a dysfunctional vulva gets to move out of marginalization and into the limelight.” [Deadline Hollywood] Keep reading »

You Couldn’t Pay Me $1 Million To Live In Danielle Staub’s Old House

For a mere $1.095 million you can reside in the house where “Real Housewife of New JerseyDanielle Staub leads her pathetic existence. Even though the house is “luxury” by normal standards, you couldn’t offer me all the Scooby snacks in the world to set foot in there. Even if I could actually afford it. A few reasons why after the jump. Keep reading »

What Is The “Bachelorette” Vetting Process?

Last night, “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl showed the true level of his crazy, repeating the phrase “I’m here to protect and guard your heart” 90,000 times and getting an ugly tattoo on his wrist to symbolize his intentions. During their one-on-one date, Ali questioned Kasey’s sincerity. We, on the other hand, totally believe that he is this in love with a girl he barely knows, and thus we are questioning his sanity. Which brings us back to the age-old question—how do “Bachelorette” producers vet the men?

Luckily, Jesse Csincsak—the guy “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas picked in season four—has teamed up with Radar to reveal the whole process. Keep reading »

White House Party Crasher Michaele Salahi Confirmed For “Real Housewives of D.C.”

Just as we suspected! Bravo officially confirmed today that Michaele Salahi, one of the White House party crashers, will star on “The Real Housewives of D.C.,” debuting August 5. Michaele, a blond socialite straight out of Central Casting, and her husband, Tareq Salahi, grabbed headlines internationally when they breached security at President Obama‘s first official state dinner. It turns out Bravo cameras were following the couple that night for the “Real Housewives” TV show. (The Salahis insist they were invited to the event). It was an embarrassment for the White House and Obama’s Social Secretary Desiree Rogers later stepped down. But no matter! Crazy people make for entertaining TV and that’s what matters, right?

The Situation Vs. The Countess: Whose Single Sucks Worse?

Lord have mercy, The Situation has released a “rap” song. Titled “The Situation,” the verdict is clear — he should stick to fist-pumping on the boardwalk.

Alas, this “Jersey Shore” juicehead isn’t the only reality star with musical aspirations. Who could forget Countess LuAnn DeLesseps from “The Real Housewives of NYC,” who recently released her single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”? (We’d prefer to forget about “Tardy For The Party” entirely.)

After the jump, I generously sacrifice my eardrums to investigate which reality show single sucks the hardest. Keep reading »

Krazy Kasey Gets A Cheesy Tattoo For “Bachelorette” Ali


If you weren’t following my “Bachelorette” liveblog last night, than allow me to recap the best ZOMG moment on the show thus far. After bachelor Kasey Kahl was denied a rose at the end of his one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky (though he wasn’t sent packing) because she felt he wasn’t being completely sincere, he felt he needed to do something BIG to prove himself. His off-tune singing came off as kind of creepy; his constant declarations that he was there to “protect and guard her heart” weren’t getting through to her — how to answer her call for him to just be himself? By getting a tattoo of course! Keep reading »

“Somewhere”: Trailer For The Next Sofia Coppola Movie To Love

The “Lost In Translation”, “Marie Antoinette”, and “Virgin Suicides” director/screenwriter Sofia Coppola has polished off another gem: “Somewhere.” Stephen Dorff plays a disaffected A-list actor, Elle Fanning is his 11-year-old daughter, and Phoenix did the score. Dang, I would have paid $12 to see the trailer alone! Dec. 22 cannot come soon enough. Keep reading »

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” On June 14, 2010

Got a case of the Mondays? Cheer up — another episode of “The Bachelorette” is on tonight and it’s going to be a doozy! According to the preview, tonight’s episode is the one that hints Kasey — that’s the guy who sort of sounds like he might be partially deaf, although so far it’s gone unnoticed by everyone but us — proves his love to Ali by, um, trying to kill himself? Or something? All I know is that there’s a very dramatic declaration and then one of the bachelors says something about him being crazy and then there’s a flash to someone’s wrists all bandaged up and then there’s AMBULANCES. If this turns out to be, like, Kasey slipped and fell while going to get his rose and cut his wrist on a thorn, I am going to be pissed. Not that I want anything to happen to Kasey, of course, I just don’t like “Bachelorette” previews being far more dramatic than the actual episode. So, yeah ABC, don’t disappoint! See you — and my handsome lover Roberto — at 8 p.m. EST! Keep reading »
