Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Bachelor Drama-Rama? Kate Gosselin Ditches Kids? A Hit On Jon Cryer?

Every Wednesday, the tabloids bring tragedy, intrigue, and lust into our lives. It’s kind of like modern-day soap operas, only instead of fictional story lines or made-up characters, they’ve cast celebrities you already know and love and pretend that it’s all 100 percent true. And since reality television has taken over for scripted drama, but real life is kinda boring, writers are forced to cook up dynamic story lines, and the line between what’s real and what’s fake is increasingly blurry. I’m not sure if gifting you with the most important stories is helping or hindering in our inevitable demise, but we are all just part of the system. So enjoy the tabs while you can. After the jump, this week’s big stories.

Sarah Palin Does Stand-Up On “The Tonight Show”

Sarah Palin may not think “Family Guy” is funny, but the former governor of Alaska tried to show off her funny bone with a stand-up set on last night’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Her potshots at the White House were lame, but she made a few good jabs at Alaska. I think we can all say that Palin killed! No, not really. I was just making a hunting joke. [NBC] Keep reading »

An Ode To Our Favorite Drunk “Housewives”

Bethenny Frankel had to do the unthinkable—film this season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” sans the sauce because she is pregnant. “Shooting this season without alcohol was a real achievement,” said Bethenny. “It was like being in the desert without water.” I’m a little disappointed that Bethenny will have to put down the Skinny Bitch Margaritas, since her drunken banter with Jill Zarin is my favorite part of the show. But as long as the rest of the ladies are still up to their shenanigans, I’m sure the show will still be excellent. [TresSugar]

In remembrance of the good times, we’ve rounded up some of the best drunken “Housewife” moments, both on and off the screen, from whichever city said good times went down in. Keep reading »

Justin Bieber Makes A 3-Year-Old’s Day/Life


Because we are not girls under the age of 12, it’s hard for us to wrap our heads around the insanity known as Bieber Fever. As a friend recently pointed out, “between the bowl cut, his last name and his weird head tick, he kind of reminds me of a Muppet baby.” True, but Justin is this generation’s answer to Jonathon Taylor Thomas, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Davy Jones, David Cassidy, etc, etc, etc. Luckily, the Bieb does seem like a pretty stand-up guy. Last night, while he was in Los Angeles celebrating his 16th birthday, he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel’s show to surprise Cody, the 3-year-old girl who spilled an insane number of tears in a YouTube video over the singer. (“I love Justin Bieber,” she wales. “I’m crying because I don’t get to see him all day.” If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out after the jump.) So Cody was pretty surprised when Justin magically appeared through the door. She jumped up to give him a hug. And offered him her hand in marriage. I guess she doesn’t know about playing hard to get yet? Keep reading »

Johnny Depp Has Put A Spell On You

When we saw the title of this post, “‘I Put a Spell on You’ Single & Video for Haiti, Feat. Johnny Depp,” we were like, what, our boyfriend can sing? But then we watched the video, and we were like, ah, no. In order to help post-earthquake relief and rescue efforts in Haiti, musicians Nick Cave, Mick Jones, Chrissy Hynde, and Mr. Depp got together to cover the Screamin’ Jay Hawkins track, “I Put a Spell on You.” Cave et al. do the singing, while Depp stands around watching the action, looking like a hot homeless guy, and then busts out his guitar and jams on it a bit. This ain’t your momma’s “We Are the World,” and we like it. [Racked] Keep reading »

Happy Hump Day: Here’s A Cat Battling A Static-y Balloon


This video could go either way — adorably funny or sort of sad. Luckily the old-timey piano music makes it the former. Enjoy! Keep reading »

Roger Ebert Gets His Voice Back


In 2001, film critic Roger Ebert was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer and over the years has gone through multiple surgeries and rounds of chemotherapy to battle the illness, including having a significant portion of his jaw removed. As a result, he can no longer eat or drink (he’s fed through a feeding tube) and cannot speak. A few weeks ago, Ebert was photographed and interviewed by Esquire, his familiar face having changed so much that many considered the image to be shocking. Ebert appeared on “Oprah” today with his wife of 18 years, Chaz, and the interview was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. Oprah asked the legend whether he remembers what the last words he spoke were, to which Ebert replied that he didn’t because he didn’t know at the time that they would be his last words. He said he hoped, however, that his last words were “I love you” to his wife, who Oprah credited with inspiring Ebert to go on living despite his very difficult circumstances. In the clip above, Ebert and Chaz hear, for the first time, a computerized voice (Ebert “speaks” by typing into a computer which says his words out loud) that has been created to match Ebert’s own voice, before his illness resulted in his loss of speech.

Do We Need More Socialites Behaving Badly?

If you love to hate Olivia Palermo from “The City,” then you are probably counting down the days until the premiere of “High Society,” Tinsley Mortimer’s new reality show on the CW. It follows trust-funder Tinsley and her other socialite friends as they party their way through the New York nightlife. The premise of the show is that Tinsley, the hardest working socialite in town, really wants to make it big with her handbag line. But the poor little rich girl is being held back by her socialite friends: Jules, the tantrum-throwing bitch; Paul the flaming rich boy; and Malik so chic, the eccentric socialite. But do we really have the stomach to follow socialites through their trials and tribulations during one of the worst recessions in history? The plot is so ludicrous and the characters so stereotypical that the answer might just be “yes.” With scorn. Hey, we all need someone to hate. Get your rotten tomatoes ready. Keep reading »

The Villainous Reality TV Show Winners We Loved To Hate

You’ve definitely already heard by now that Jake Pavelka proposed to Vienna Girardi on “The Bachelor” last night. Which wasn’t really surprising, but was certainly disappointing for those under the illusion that reality TV shows promising true love have any intention of delivering such. I suspect this will be drawn out for at least another three specials, leading to Jake ending up with Ali Fedotowsky, who’ll inevitably pick the wrong guy on “The Bachelorette.” [Reality TV World]

Vienna can now join a relatively long line of reality-show-winning villains who managed to mean their way to the top, much to viewers’ dismay. Keep reading »
