That’s Carrie Fisher in costume as Princess Leia, taking a break from filming “Return of the Jedi” to sunbathe alongside her stunt double. I bet she had interesting tan lines. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Precious,” “The Box,” “A Christmas Carol,” “Men Who Stare At Goats”

Thank goodness it’s Friday, because this daylight savings thing has totally killed any motivation to leave the house after 5pm. This will have to change, though, because new movies open this weekend and there are some good ones. If you’re in the mood to be an emotional mess, go see “Precious.” If you have ever wondered if you could take another person’s life in your hands, “The Box” is the movie for you. If you’re not a fan of goats but enjoy handsome men, “Men Staring at Goats” should work. And if you need a hand getting in the holiday spirit, go see “A Christmas Carol.” Your viewing choice is of course up to your discretion, but go see “Precious.” Oprah says so, too. Keep reading »

Parents Group Is In A Tizzy Over The “Gossip Girl” Threesome Episode

The Parents Television Council has asked CW affiliates not to air the much-anticipated threesome episode of “Gossip Girl” because airing the teen menage a trois would be “reckless and irresponsible,” said the group’s president Tim Winter in a statement Wednesday. The group says on its website that “the show conveys the message that sex is a tool used to manipulate people.” Although the promos for the “3SOME” don’t say who will be involved, some suspect that it will be the show’s top schemers, Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass, with another major character. The median viewer age is 27 years old, according to a CW spokesperson, a claim Winter said in his statement “doesn’t even pass the ‘laugh test.’” He said “Gossip Girl” is “expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers.” Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Actress & Comedian Erica Watson, Co-Star Of “Precious”

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working alongside a lady named Erica Watson at a dreary desk job. She’s one-of-a-kind: nice as can be, whip smart, hilarious, and just an all-around bundle of good vibes. It was a total bummer Erica and I lost touch after we both moved on to other jobs.

Then I randomly saw Erica performing at a stand-up comedy club one night last spring and when we reconnected, I learned her career has blown up. The Fabulous Miss Erica Watson has a small, but significant, role in “Precious,” which you might have heard has OSCAR written all over it.

But not only is Erica a star on the big-screen: she’s also been performing a one-woman stand up comedy show about body image called—get this—”Fat Bitch.” After wrapping up performances in New York City this fall, Erica will be performing in a Chicago run of “Fat Bitch” at the Chicago Center for the Performing Arts from November 19th-28th, 2009. (She’ll be back in NYC in February 2010—check Erica’s web site for more details.)

After the jump, Erica and I chatted about playing an abusive mom in “Precious,” freaking everyone out by naming her show “Fat Bitch,” and how Erica wishes she could be more like Santa Claus: Keep reading »

Will The “Real Housewives Of Orange County” Suffer Now That Everyone’s Broke?

While rumors flew all season that many of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” were broke, they did their best to keep the situation under wraps and downplay the home downsizing they were having to do. The women of Orange County, perhaps realizing that they need to up the dramatic ante, were more than vocal about their financial woes in last night’s season premiere episode. The worst off seemed to be Jeanna Keough, who you know as the brunette, square-faced former Playmate. A real estate agent who was once rolling in dough, Jeanna is now struggling to make ends meet, especially as she divorces her hubby. Not only does she reveal that she is moving into a much smaller house, she also gets a lecture on spending from teenage son Colton. “It’s weird to be in a place where you have to think before making a purchase,” she said. Awww, poor baby. But seriously, times are so tough for her that she’s leaving the show. Keep reading »

New Scientology Tell-All Reveals Tom Cruise’s Telekinetic Powers

Like many of you, I have long been curious about what kind of malarkey and tomfoolery is going on inside the cult Church of Scientology. What’s up with the uniforms? The audits with the weird metal rods? Xenu? And most importantly … is Tom Cruise really an extra-terrestrial? I’ve often found myself tempted to sneak inside a Scientology center with a hidden mic and snoop around like Nancy Drew, but my fear of alien abduction is far too strong. Well, no need to wonder anymore. Marc Headly, a former insider at the church, has written a tell-all book, called Blown for Good, about his 15 years of work with Scientology. And folks … you can’t handle the truth. Keep reading »

“Iron Chef America” Heads To The White House

The Food Network announced this week that it will air a two-hour “Super Chef Special” of “Iron Chef America,” which will feature First Lady Michelle Obama, White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford, and the White House Kitchen Garden. On Jan. 3, celebrity chefs Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, and Emeril Lagasse will be greeted by Obama and given their challenge: “create a meal for America using the White House Kitchen Garden’s produce as their secret ingredients,” the Food Network revealed in a statement. The teams will be Flay and Comerford against Lagasse and Batali. The four chefs will head to New York “Kitchen Stadium” with their produce for the battle, creating five dishes that show off their garden ingredients and “represent the ultimate American meal.” Chef Nigella Lawson, Olympic gold medalist Natalie Coughlin, and actress Jane Seymour will judge the battle.

Kristen Wiig Reads Suzanne Somers’ Sex Poems


“Three’s Company”‘s Suzanne Somers didn’t just fill out a pair of bell bottoms, she also filled a book with her sexy love poems. The blonde bombshell penned some real American classics by putting her own sex life into prose. But shockingly enough, much like her acting, Suzanne’s literary talent has gone unnoticed for decades. Well, that is until “Saturday Night Live”‘s Kristen Wiig resurrected this tome of bootylicious poetry for the New York Comedy Festival’s Celeb Autobiography reading last night. And the “Touch Me” chapter was chock full of horny ’70s life lesson gems like:

“Sometimes I wonder if there’s enough love to go around with all the pain and longing. But one thing is for sure: If anyone has any extra love, even a heartbeat, or a touch or two, I wish they wouldn’t waste it on dogs.”

Deep! Although, we bet the crazy dog massage lady would argue with that! [WOW Report] Keep reading »

The “Project Runway” Final 3 Are All Chicks

Project Runway” has been a little off this season, with the exception of amazing guest judges like Christina Aguilera and Milla Jovovich. Is the show’s formula feeling stale the sixth time around? Did the move to Lifetime ruin it? Or is this just the lamest cast ever? Last night, the five contestants were taken to the Getty Center and had to pick a piece of inspiration to base their garment on. Wait, that sounds familiar—didn’t they do that with the Metropolitan Museum of Art a season or two ago? Keep reading »
