Watch The “Mad Men” Cast And Crew Sing “Bye Bye Birdie”!

Hey, there’s a reason the cast and crew of “Mad Men” aren’t in musical theater! But if you can ignore how they all sound like a cat slowly dying, it’s pretty cute. And yes, somebody gets naked. (It’s not Jon Hamm, unfortunately.)

If The Frisky subjected you to a video of us warbling a show tune off-key, which one would you want it to be? Tell us in the comments! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Eva Longoria And The Rest Of The “Desperate Housewives” Brood Doubt Nicollette’s Lawsuit

And cue the Nicollette Sheridan backlash. Earlier this week, Nicollette filed a $20 million lawsuit against ABC, claiming that she was slapped by “Desperate Housewives” executive producer Marc Cherry in 2008 and that she was eventually written off the show over the incident. But according to Radar, ABC has come up with an eye witness who saw the whole incident unroll. The witness has signed an affidavit and has agreed to testify in court that there was no slap. Instead, this person says that Cherry patted Nicollette on the head while giving direction, which sounds condescending and annoying, but not abusive. “People on the show feel this is a nuisance suit,” a source tells them. “But if she makes the rounds of the talk shows, it could get ugly for Marc.” [Radar]

Justin Timberlake Wants To Be Your “Friends With Benefits”

Usually, this story would just be about Justin Timberlake landing a role in a new film called “Friends With Benefits.” But there is a bigger issue here, other than questioning whether JT can successfully act in something that isn’t “Saturday Night Live.” See, Justin’s “Friends With Benefits” is just one of three projects currently in the works with the same title. You’d think this title would’ve been used already, since the term has bopped around our lexicon for years, but it hasn’t. It looks like the entertainment world can use a little help deciding whom to bestow the coveted title to. Read on and decide who you think deserves the prize. [Deadline] Keep reading »

Kelly Bensimon Does Some Old-Fashioned Shoe-To-Pavement Reporting

You know how Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” claims to be a writer? Well, until I peeped this video I assumed she attended swanky events, greeted her hosts, and afterward pulled a little blurb out of her behind for a niche magazine or website. Boy, was I wrong. I, like Kelly, know the pain of rejection when you’re hitting the pavement trying to report a story. But I often had to interview more nefarious subjects than those expressing their own street style. Catch the rest of the episode tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and don’t forget to hit up the Talk Bubble while you watch. Keep reading »

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.

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

kate gosselin photo

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 »
