sure can rumba. She was pretty great last night—ending her routine with a split and getting a score of 47. Yes, the judge’s pervy comments in regards to her are starting to wear on me. (“For me perhaps, a little too much clothing,” said Liam. ““I can only think of sex, sex, and more sex,” said Bruno. Get your chin off the floor, dudes.) But I still hope she can catch up to Evan Lysacek. Keep reading »
Here’s a guaranteed recipe for cuteness: Take one part adorable singing kids from the famed P.S. 22
chorus, add another part cute college guys from an Ithaca a cappella group, add a dash of catchy, indie music … say, Owl City’s “Fireflies,” for example, mix them up, and voilà! A treat so sweet it might make you puke butterflies and rainbows. [YouTube

This week on “Pretty Wild,” our “bling ring” buddy Alexis Neiers is planning little sister Gabby‘s Sweet 16 party with her pal, Tess. It’s just your average 16-year-old’s birthday party: a red carpet, a “Gabby-tini,” pole dancing, catered Italian food.
But somebody wants FONDUE instead, damn it. “This is my 16th birthday!” Gabby shrieks. “Not some kind of whore party!”
Methinks this girl is going to make some guy very, very happy someday. [E! Online] Keep reading »
This weekend, I finally got my hands on a copy of The Gentlewoman, the new UK-based women’s style magazine from the company behind Fantastic Man. It’s definitely a departure from most fashion glossies, with long, in-depth conversations with women: some well-known, some I’d never heard of, but all fascinating. While talking about their lives, a couple of them mentioned making compromises in order to get what they want from work and life. Keep reading »
Spring has fully sprung but just because it’s nice out doesn’t mean you’ll be able to pry me from my couch. There is way too much going on with my TV friends this week. This week, we have the premiere of “Tough Love Couples” and “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business.” We have episode two of the great new series “Treme.” We have the series finale of “Ugly Betty.” But perhaps most exciting … the return of “Glee.” Keep reading »
“It’s the best audience ever. You guys enjoy the music, you get into it, and you’re not afraid to let go and express yourself. That’s what I want from an audience. I recently did a show where the crowd was just standing there, staring at me with their camera phones up, YouTubing me or whatever the heck they do now. I was like, ‘This is crazy! I need vibe!’ I’d so much rather have you guys jumping up and down, waving your arms in the air.”
– Jennifer Lopez explains to The Advocate the difference between performing for a predominantly straight audience and a gay one. But I’d like to suggest that the “straight” crowd was only trying to get footage of J.Lo’s most recent fall. [Starpulse] Keep reading »
Taylor Momsen hasn’t won many supporters on The Frisky with her self-absorbed remarks about not being a role model and having no time to care about Haiti. So it’s not surprising that her bad attitude has affected her relationship with the “Gossip Girl” writers. As a result of creative differences, Taylor’s character, Jenny Humphrey, will be absent next season for an unspecified number of episodes, according to an insider who spoke to EW.com. Taylor has also confirmed that she’s done with the program. The writers seem to be cooking up something extra big for Little J during this season’s finale, but something tells me the character will be back at some point. Keep reading for my ideas on how they can get rid of Taylor, but still keep Jenny waiting in the wings for another big moment. Keep reading »
I am not sexy.
That could be the takeaway if you’d been a fly on the pole — er, the wall — at my first pole dancing class this weekend. There are a great many talents I have in this world. But strutting sexy and swirling around a pole are not some of those gifts. Keep reading »
Sometimes I think that the way to create world peace is to get all the world’s leaders together — a few terrorists too, like Osama — and throw them in a room with a ton of puppies. Despite their differences and occasional desire to blow each other up, who among them doesn’t love puppies? I bet Osama isn’t even immune to the giggle-inducing joy of a wet puppy kiss. And really, how can you continue to be pissed and evil and vengeful when you’ve got a puppy crawling over your face? Just an idea. Happy Monday (and National Pet Month), y’all! Keep reading »
