“Dancing With The Stars”: Who We’d Like To See Next Season

Last night Nicole Scherzinger was the 10th star to claim the mirrored ball on “Dancing with the Stars.” The lead Pussycat Doll went up against Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and ESPN anchor Erin Andrews and came out victorious. Many predicted that Scherzinger would win from the start based on her spectacular performances and stage presence, not to mention her extensive dance history as a member of PCD. But Lysacek and Andrews gave her a good run for her money, bringing an enjoyable end to a season of controversy.

Was it me, or was season 10 the most exciting ever? Kate Gosselin‘s diva behavior, Jake Pavelka‘s cornball glances at Vienna Girardi, and Nicole’s spats with Pamela Anderson made it must-watch TV, not to mention Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s major snafu regarding Erin Andrews’ wardrobe. The show seriously picked the right contestants this time around. To help them out for season 11, here are the 15 stars we’d love to see do the rumba next. Keep reading »

Was It Better To Be A Woman In Jane Austen’s Time?

Sometimes I think it would be so much easier to be a woman in Jane Austen’s time. You know, like having only three dresses to choose from, communicating only by letter, and being told you will be married to your second cousin so you can inherit a big estate. That almost doesn’t seem so bad compared to that which is the modern dating scene. Sure, it may seem terribly anti-feminist (and kind of gross), but just think of all of the headaches you’d be spared. Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Bret Is Ignoring Doctors? The Travoltas Are Expecting Twins!

I don’t know if you guys realize this, but it’s almost summer. And if you remember what happened last summer, I’ll remind you delicately—stars fell left and right.

And who’s gonna be there when all this goes down? The tabloids. Hooray! And celebrities are like fairies—you have to believe in them. After the jump, the most interesting, maybe-true stories from this week’s tabloids. Keep reading »

“Peaches Christ Superstar” Gets A Revival

Maybe she was inspired by Green Day bringing “American Idiot” to Broadway? Or maybe she’s just the biggest Andrew Lloyd Webber fan ever? Either way, earlier this year electro-rapper Peaches had the genius idea to stage “Peaches Christ Superstar,” a one-woman-show based on the classic musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” featuring her accompanied by pianist Chilly Gonzales, at a Berlin theater. “Peaches will sing all roles including: Jesus, Maria Magdalena, the disciples and the pharisees,” the press release proudly announced. Only there was a big issue—the person who owned the German rights to the show’s music refused to license the songs to her. Evidently, he decided to turn the other cheek and the show went on. Peaches got rave reviews and sold out each and every show during a three-day run in late March. And now lucky Berliners can catch it again. The show is being brought back to the stage, running on May 31st to June 2nd. The teaches of Peaches, indeed. Now if only she’ll bring the musical to the US of A.

We Are So Over Kim Kardashian Bikini Magazine Covers

I couldn’t help but notice that of the six major tabloid magazines, three this week went with covers featuring a prominently placed Kim Kardashian in a bikini. That’s half. Life & Style is particularly into Kim bikini covers—I searched for less than three minutes and came up with four. Yes, Kim has an amazing body and I understand why she’s always half-naked on the cover of men’s magazines. But, uh, if you are the maker of a magazine whose primary demographic is women, how about giving us something different? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m A Miranda And I’m Proud

In elementary school, I was the only kid in my class whose favorite Ninja Turtle was Donatello. Later, I was the only one of my girlfriends who chose Jon Knight as her favorite New Kid on the Block. In other words, I have a thing for the runt of the litter. And the current runt of the pop culture litter is Miranda Hobbes, the one who nobody picks as their favorite “Sex and the City” character.
