Xzibit! Paxil! Get Ready To Use These Proper Nouns In Scrabble

Hold on to your tiles, people. Scrabble has changed its rules. Starting in June, if you buy a new Scrabble board, proper nouns will officially be fair play in the classic word game. A Scrabble spokesperson explained that this is to “introduce an element of popular culture into the game.” They continued, “This is one of a number of twists and challenges included that we believe existing fans will enjoy and will also enable younger fans and families to get involved.” It’s the first change in the game’s rules since 1948.

So what names, places, and brand names should you start playing? After the jump, a handy cheat sheet. Keep reading »

An Ode To “Kids Incorporated”

I found this clip of Stacy Ferguson (aka Fergie) when she was on “Kids Incorporated,” the show that was only like the most major inspiration of my childhood. I know you remember it, too. The plot was a little bit sketchy—a bunch of kids were in a rock band together and somehow were forced to face important issues each week like violence or drugs. All of this was interspersed with cheesy performances. But it didn’t matter that it made no sense—it was totally genius. Now I’m kind of laughing my ass off at this hee-haw version of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but at the time that it came out, it provided me weeks of entertainment in front of the mirror with my hairbrush. It was even the first CD I ever purchased. When I was 12, my childhood dream came true when I actually got to audition for “Kids Incorporated.” Naturally I chose to sing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” I didn’t get the part … that vajazzling b**ch Jennifer Love Hewitt nabbed the role, but I eventually got over it and remained a loyal fan. After the jump a few more of my favorite clips from “Kids Incorporated.” Oh, the memories. [BuzzFeed]

Excerpts from Kate Gosselin’s Tell-All Book Tell Us … Nothing

It looks like Kate Gosselin shares secrets just about as well as she dances. For the few of you who didn’t see her latest performance on “Dancing With the Stars,” it was sort of like watching a poor interpretative dance about a stalled car. Now, it seems that Kate has also stalled on sharing anything too juicy in her new memoir, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Children on Love, Faith and Family, based on excerpts in Us Weekly. The upcoming book is a series of notes written to the different members of her extensive brood. The notes include reassurances to her children that just because she is busy being famous and getting new hairstyles, doesn’t mean that she won’t always be there for them. Unless she is flying out to L.A to dance. So basically, I Just Want You to Know is a snoozefest. Read on to see some of the most “interesting” excerpts from the memoir, but don’t prepare to be shocked. Keep reading »

Quotable: Johnny Weir Won’t Watch Evan Lysacek On “Dancing With The Stars”

“Evan is fine as a person. We’ve been competitors for years and years and years and that’s kinda the forefront to us being people to each other. I think he worked very hard and he deserved that Olympic gold medal and he does a good job. He does his work. But as a person I don’t really know him that well and we’ve never really made the effort to be nice to each other. And I won’t watch him [on 'Dancing With the Stars.'].”

The 10 Worst Bosses In Hollywood

Even though Edie was totally detestable on “Desperate Housewives,” something tells me that Nicollette Sheridan didn’t deserve the palm-to-the-face allegedly delivered by her boss, producer Marc Cherry. She’s currently suing the studio for damages and wrongful termination after Cherry killed off her character shortly after their kerfuffle. After Teri Hatcher also supposedly complained about Cherry’s abuse, he allegedly said, “I hope [she] gets hit by a car and dies.” Geez, he must be a great guy to work for.

Hollywood seems to be a breeding ground for tyranny and narcissism. Here are nine more of the scariest bosses in Tinsel Town. Keep reading »

Holler! “Jersey Shore” Season 2 Begins Filming

  • Get ready for some serious GTL, party people. The cast of “Jersey Shore” is in Miami for the filming of season two and their presence is hardly going unnoticed in South Beach. Yesterday, a full-scale mob gathered outside of the crew’s hotel. This season, the cast will have a security detail with them, which should mean—fewer fights? [NY Post]
  • Angelina Pivarnick peaced out of the first season by episode three, but she is back for season two. Just like the other castmates, she signed off Twitter earlier this week since MTV doesn’t allow the roommates to use cell phones or computers while filming. “This is my last tweet,” she wrote. “I just wanna say THANK U for all your love & support, ‘JS2′ is possible because of u. I’m gonna miss ….Lots of love.” Oh dear. The sound of her voice is annoying me already. [Zap 2 It]
