“I had to make a tough choice whether to stay or leave because of work. I’d be faced with that decision again, but I would challenge myself to put love first … The opportunity would be so exciting. It’d be very difficult for me because I’ve never met a guy and been attracted right away. Usually I have several interactions and become attracted to their mind instead of the first impression. I might not be any good because I’d be drilling everyone.”
— Ali Fedotowsky, the woman who prematurely left “The Bachelor,” on the buzz about her being the next “Bachelorette.” But what if Jake were to ask her back before that happened?
“He was hurt by me leaving and I think he is with someone right now and happy, so I don’t know that I can imagine him coming back. But if he did, I would think about it. I really care for him. I don’t know how quickly we could move forward.”

We’re getting into those dark, drudging days of winter when all you want to do is hole up with a blanket with a warm drink and wait for spring. If humans were really as smart as we’re supposed to be, we would have initiated mandatory winter hibernation like the bears. But since we’re stuck trudging through snow and dealing with our sallow skin tone, we might as well take the opportunity to hibernate in a movie theater for a few hours a week, at least. This week brings a trio of dark thrillers with “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” and “Red Riding Trilogy.” Keep reading »

Nick Waters may be a superhero, as far as I’m concerned. This brave, 28-year-old Oklahoma boy survived watching 30 chick flicks in 30 days. The idea came to him last year when he and his wife, Nicci (Nick and Nicci … that’s a rom-com waiting to happen), were watching a garden-variety, painful chick flick together. Since he didn’t really get it (we don’t always either, Nick), he thought watching more was a surefire way to understand the opposite sex better. Nick took things a step further and decided to write about his experience on a blog, 30chickflicks.com. Keep reading »
Over the summer, we got more than a little bit excited when we heard a rumor that “Bridget Jones 3″ was in the works. Sources say the movie is happening. But will Bridget be the adorable, slightly plump woman we identified with in the first flick? Or will one of her diets have worked, and she’ll now be rail thin? Supposedly, and the source here is the National Enquirer so take it with a grain of salt, Renee Zellweger is hard-core pressing for the
later latter. According to the rag, she is nervous to put on weight for the role again—her doctors have told her it’s unhealthy. Also, Renee allegedly thinks the demise of her and Jack White’s relationship had to do with her extra pounds and doesn’t want to risk having it affect her relationship with Bradley Cooper. (Side notes: A) Does Jack White really get to talk about people putting on weight—Noel Gallagher recently described him as “Zorro on doughnuts.” B) Perhaps Bradley would like her a little curvier?) Renee supposedly asked producers if she could wear a fat suit rather than actually gaining the weight. And now she’s lobbying to avoid the issue altogether and play the role as she is. Producers, we BEG you not to let this happen. A skinny Bridget Jones just wouldn’t be the same. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Last night, while watching the women’s halfpipe finals, we noticed a strange phenomenon: Each competitor had a distinct pre-run ritual. American Kelly Clark’s, however, stood out. Before each of her two tries, she put her iPod on a particular song and sang along to it. Kelly’s personal karaoke session helped her win the bronze metal. Can you figure out what song she’s singing along to? We did some sleuthing and found the tune. Keep reading to take a listen. Keep reading »
This is way too much of a bulging good thing, but it’s sure to get viewers to notice the premiere of HBO’s “Hung” in New Zealand. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
