While attempting to tighten a cap on a jar of oil on “Good Morning America,” chef Jamie Oliver loses his grip, spills some oil, and sends the cap flying. Oliver feigns embarrassment, then find out what happens next! Watch it … Keep reading »
The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me. After hearing her perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album, Heart That’s Beating (due out on April 9), I couldn’t wait to meet her. I sat down with the Aussie—who used to perform under the name New Buffalo and who wrote Feist’s mega-hit “1, 2, 3, 4″—over some French toast at The Old Pecan Street Café. And she was just as lovely and ethereal in person as she sounded in church. Keep reading »

When I was about 10 years old, my dad made me promise that—as soon as I turned 21—the two of us would go on a father/daughter trip to Las Vegas. The pact stipulated that it would be just him and me making our way to Sin City—it would not include any kind of boyfriend, or buddy, and certainly not my mother. At the time, 21 seemed like fiction to me. I was still figuring out multiplication tables and it was hard to think a decade ahead to a time when I would no longer be belabored by math and old enough to drink and gamble as well. But at the same time, even at 10, I understood my father was serious, and that a large amount of trust was being entwined in this promise. Keep reading »
My fascination with “The City” ebbs and flows, but for some intangible reason, I always drift back into it. Maybe it has something to do with the facts that Olivia Palermo fascinates me (she kinda reminds me of Fallon from “Dynasty”), it’s always interesting to see the behind-the-scenes at Elle
— Joe Zee is so charismatic! — and when Kelly Cutrone shows up, the thin story line gains some edge. Mostly, it’s one of those fashion reality shows that works
, despite its flaws. Season Two doesn’t begin until Apr. 27, but I’m jammin’ on this preview. Looks like I’m in for a few more episodes. [MTV

Since we met Patti Stanger a mere two years ago, we’ve fallen in love with Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” We don’t always agree with the advice she doles out Tuesdays at 9 p.m., but her brutal honesty is irresistible — even if it requires her to say some harsh words about a girl’s hair, or give an overly confident dude a dose of reality. As Patti’s business has grown, so has her staff. Destin Pfaff started off as the office manager of the Millionaire’s Club (a job he found on Craigslist), but he’s moved on to bigger and better things. Not only is Destin now the COO of the company, but he’s also the most successful male matchmaker Patti’s ever had.
And now’s your chance to ask Destin anything. Do you want love advice? Are you curious about the man himself? Tell us what you’d like us to ask Destin, and we’ll pick our three favorite questions for him to answer. Keep reading »
As those of us longtime fans of “Saturday Night Live” know, turning a five-minute skit into a two-hour movie can be either the best idea ever or the worst. Really, there doesn’t seem to be much middle ground when it comes to “SNL” films. Next month, “MacGruber,” the latest of the “SNL” flicks, hits theaters. In case you missed the skit on the small screen, Will Forte plays MacGruber—a spoof of the ’80s TV detective MacGyver. The film, based on some kind of far-fetched nuclear weapons plot, will also star Ryan Phillippe as his sidekick, Kristin Wiig as his love interest, and Val Kilmer as the villain. I must admit I’m a wee bit nervous. Is this film really a good idea? [Moviefone]
To help you judge, after the jump we acknowledge the “SNL” movies that were true hits. And some miserable misses. Keep reading »
There seems to be a massive fail in celebrity couplings lately, with actresses leaving their husbands and husbands collecting grody mistresses. But what will this mean for tabloid town? It’s gonna be a musical chairs of alleged lovers and wife-swapping, that’s what. It also means that the trashiest of journalistic endeavors have become approximately 42 percent more interesting. And because you only care just enough, we’ve saved you the time and money and read all the tabloids for you! And we’ll take those paper-cut penalties, just because we care. Keep reading »
Almost as soon as Jake Pavelka stood up from asking Vienna Girardi to marry him on the season finale of “The Bachelor,” one of his exes started saying anonymously that Jake only did the show for fame, that they were in touch during filming, that he was contractually obligated to propose, and that he had called and said he loved her after he returned from filming. Now, said girl has decided to go public. Her name is Tanya Douglas and she is 24. She met Jake when she flew on one of his flights and he slipped her a note with his number. She says the two started dating in 2008 and broke up when he went on “The Bachelorette.” They got back together when he returned.
After the jump, the juicy details she revealed in this week’s Life & Style.
