According to an internal Fox memo, the network and Macy’s were “already discussing wardrobe and choreography” and picking out a float for the “Glee” cast to ride on when the store told them the offer would have to be rescinded because “it did not want the Fox series…getting a big fat plug on NBC’s parade broadcast,” according to The Washington Post. A network insider claims the department store had worked out the deal before consulting NBC. Keep reading »
Blow-up dolls have feelings, too, you know. They’re not simply inanimate objects that lonely men can have their way with. At least that’s the premise behind the Japanese film “Air Doll.” Based on a manga, “Air Doll” tells the story of an inflatable sex doll who magically comes to life and explores the world after her owner leaves for work each day. She even starts dating a man she meets in a video rental store. The movie, which was shown at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, isn’t available on Netflix quite yet, but we’ve already added
it to our queue in anticipation of its U.S. release. Keep reading »

has majorly grown on us since her days as a sort of bratty kid on “The Osbournes.” Now that she’s on “Dancing with the Stars
,” we’re getting to see a side to Kelly we never knew existed! Last night, she admitted to loving musicals and being disappointed that she didn’t get to play the lead in “Chicago” on stage because she “couldn’t dance.” Watch the clip above to hear how “DWTS” has done wonders for Kelly’s confidence, then watch her and partner Louis Van Amstel do the Charleston — and prove the people who said she couldn’t dance wrong — after the jump.

Today was a great day! Two of the people I would most like to have sitting at my table at a dinner party appeared on TV together! That’s right, our own Astrosexologist, Kiki T., appeared on “Tyra”!

About three weeks ago, 27-year-old “Mad Men” scribe Kater Gordon won an Emmy for the episode “Meditations in an Emergency,” which you know as the one where Betty Draper does the deed with some dude in the women’s powder room of a Manhattan bar. Kater was kind of like Weiner’s personal Peggy Olson. She started off babysitting his kids, but after the two started talking television, he hired her as his personal assistant. During season one of “Mad Men,” she became his writer’s assistant and by the end of season two was given the opportunity to co-write the season finale. For season three, she was promoted to full-fledged staff writer. But, surprise, Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Kater has been fired. “We think [Kater's] done a great job, particularly for someone whose career has progressed so quickly,” a show insider told Finke. “Now, however, Matt has reluctantly decided that their relationship has reached its full potential. There’s absolutely no doubt that Kater will continue to have unprecedented success in her career as she spreads her wings.” [Deadline] Keep reading »
