The ultimate women’s entertainment fix – from new movies to reality TV to hot new music downloads.

Donny Osmond Wins “Dancing With The Stars”

Who would you expect to win a dancing competition—the 51-year-old teen idol who drove the ladies crazy in the ’70s, the 30-year-old chantuese behind “Ghetto Superstar,” or the 25-year-old newly svelte rock princess? Well, surprise! Donny Osmond has upset Mya and Kelly Osbourne on “Dancing with the Stars” and earned the right to take home the mirrored disco ball trophy. We’re thrilled; largely because we just didn’t see it coming. Nor did his sister, Marie, who should have been all about Team Donny after her less successful turn on the show in 2007 that included a collapse on camera. But while she gave Donny a makeup bag for good luck, she said that Mya was the most talented finalist. “A little bit country” that.

After the jump, a look at Donny’s best moves on the dance floor. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How Jordan Catalano Ruined My Love Life

“Love is when you look into someone’s eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside, to their soul, and you both know instantly. I always imagined I’d fall in love nursing a blind soldier who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits.”

Angela Chase of “My So Called Life” said lots of words to live by, if you were an awkward, 15-year-old sophomore in high school in 1994. Which I was. And I was especially fond of her deep musings about love or, more specifically, her musings about Jordan Catalano. If Angela could go for Jordan Catalano, then so could I, I thought. Well not him exactly—but an alternative him. Sure, it seemed a tad unrealistic considering that no remotely hot guys went to my high school. And even if they did, they would never look twice at me, the bookish, alternative, theater girl. But still, I believed. Keep reading »

Is Leighton Meester The Next Mariah Carey?


Leighton Meester has been working hard on launching her singing career, providing guest vocals on other groups’ songs (Cobra Starship’s “Good Girls Go Bad“) and performing at the opening of American Eagle’s flagship store in New York City last week. Now, she’s trying to get a holiday song stuck in our heads à la Mariah Carey. I definitely prefer this seasonal tune to her upcoming album’s first single, “Somebody to Love“; however, we all have “All I Want for Christmas Is You” in our heads 15 years after it first came out, so I’d say Mariah still holds the top spot.

The Muppets Do Queen And It Is Beautiful


It’s a well-known fact that Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the the hardest songs to sing and until this very second, I didn’t think anyone but my beloved Freddie Mercury could pull it off. I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to have The Muppets sing this classic rock song, but they should be given a prize or a medal or perhaps be knighted by the Queen. I particularly like Beaker’s contribution — mee-mee-mee-mee! [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Is Adam Lambert The Victim Of A Double Standard?


As we mentioned yesterday, after his AMA performance in which he kissed a guy and simulated oral sex, Adam Lambert‘s performance on “Good Morning America” this morning was swiftly canceled. Instead, Lambert was interviewed on the CBS morning show, “The Early Show” (who scooped him up to perform after ABC gave him the boot) where he talked about the “double whammy” of being a gay man in show business. Lambert said that with his “background in theater,” he just got “carried away” with his sexually-explicit performance, but he didn’t feel he owed anyone an apology. “I’m a performer, not a babysitter,” Lambert said as he explained it was never his intention to offend anyone.

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Rihanna To Adam Lambert

Today is not much of an indie day. Nope, today is a day for big, huge, mega-blockbuster releases from the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Shakira, and Susan Boyle. Why? So that they’re in stores, sitting on the new releases shelf, on Black Friday when people storm the doors of Wal-Mart, hopefully not trampling people their way to big discounts. So if pop is your thing, congrats! And if it’s not your thing, come back next week. Keep reading »

Horror: Italian Group Tries To Cancel MTV’s “Jersey Shore” Show


We knew this was going to happen: an Italian-American organization in New Jersey has complained about MTV‘s newest reality show, “Jersey Shore,” because of offensive, stereotypical language it uses to describe Italians. In a promo for “Jersey Shore,” the voiceover promises the beach-going partiers will “keep their hair high, their muscles juiced, and their fists pumping all summer long.” Apparently, a reputation as the “hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos” is not something that the group UNICO National would like to enforce.

New Favorite TV Show: “Dinner With The Band”


Friends, I have found my new television obsession—the Independent Film Channel’s “Dinner with the Band,” which conveniently airs on Tuesdays (tonight!) at 11 p.m. The concept is simple. Tattooed chef Sam Mason invites a different band each week to his New York loft. He shows them how to make a souped-up version of their favorite tour food and, while things cook, the band plays a set. The reasons the show does it for me: A) Sam is way hot, regardless of his mustache situation, B) because the bands he invites are great, from Kid Sister to Les Savy Fav and, C) you get to discover some rockin’ new tunes and cook stuff at the same time. Also, since we’re dealing with bands, there is a high instance rate of tight jeans. My DVR is already set. Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: Taylor Swift’s Biggest/Tiniest Fan


When I have a child, I am going to strongly consider lulling them to sleep with the same song every single night so that I can record them performing said song from memory and put the video on YouTube. This little girl has all of the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me,” specifically, her performance of the song at the MTV Video Music Awards, memorized, right down to the “Thank you New York!” shout out at the end. My uterus is singing along. Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of November 23rd 2009

It’s Thanksgiving week, and you know what I’m thankful for? My grotesquely oversized television. And thankfully, there’s lots of amazing stuff to watch this week, from the new show “Find My Family” that’ll make you cry like a baby, to the season finale of “Dancing With The Stars,” which will have you standing up and cheering—well, at least if Kelly Osbourne wins. But you know what I’m most looking forward to when it comes to the boob tube? Friday’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” marathon, “Chillin’ With Dylan,” on SoapNet. Don’t even bother calling me during the day, mkay? Keep reading »
