The Curse Of The Lifetime Movie?

I’ve developed a theory. Maybe I am just overly paranoid, but there seems to be some kind of curse associated with starring in a Lifetime movie. The pattern is: be in a Lifetime movie and then things go down the tubes. Take, for example, former “American Idol” Fantasia Barrino. I knew that her Lifetime flick “The Fantasia Barrino Story,” in which she starred as … um … herself, would be a stinker, but are you aware of what’s become of her life since then? She’s broke, her $1.3 million mansion is allegedly in foreclosure, she’s dating a married man who works at T-Mobile, and she’s supposedly starring in an unscripted VH-1 reality show with Rudy from “The Cosby Show.” This is very, very bad, people. I’m starting to think this Lifetime curse is legit. [Celebitchy]

I Learned How To Dance From The Interwebs


Confession: my secret dream has always been to be a dancer. Harsh reality: I am a hot, awkward mess on the dance floor. Back in the day, I used to be the wallflower at the party watching other people get down … until one fateful night when, with the help of a little liquid courage, I got the nerve to cut loose and try some moves I had seen online. And I discovered a new way to tear it up—to rock the worst dance moves possible. Yes, I became the best-worst dancer at every party and received all the negative-positive attention so rightly owed to me. Who do I have to thank for the revelation? Soulja Boy, who taught me how to crank the “Superman.” Bonus points if you know what it means to “Superman that ho.” Thank you for your fine lyrics and hot moves, Soulja! But a dancer has to keep her moves fresh. That’s why I’m always cruisin’ the web for the newest dance craze that will help me keep my skillz sharp and ready for any dance-off in da club. After the jump, my fave internet dance crazes. Keep reading »

It Pays To Be The Mean Girl On “Project Runway”

Did you watch last night’s season finale of “Project Runway“? Yeah, I didn’t think so. I’ve been putting off writing about it all day because, well, it was kind of boring. With Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina competing, it seemed pretty clear that too-cool-for-school Irina was going to take the crown, despite maybe having knocked off her T-shirt from New York Magazine The preview for the episode tried to make it sound interesting by amping up a minor freak-out moment that Tim Gunn had backstage, worrying why everyone wasn’t lined up to get the show started on time. Carol Hannah dealt with her stomach bug. Irina half-accused Althea of stealing one of her ideas. Althea rolled her eyes. As the three women showed their collections, there were definitely some nice things, but, honestly, the only real highlight was seeing Jaslene from “America’s Next Top Model” stomping her bad self down the runway. In the end, Irina won. And it was touching seeing her Eastern European dad, who she’s said multiple times doesn’t think that a woman can make it as a fashion designer, get teary over her success. But all I can say is, I hope next season they figure out how to wake this sleepy series up. Keep reading »

Are Chick Flicks Misogynist?

According to our buddies over at Cracked, some chick flicks secretly hate women. Who’d've thunk it? After reading the list, we’d have to agree. Some movies for ladies really do appear to think less of women than you’d think. Take, for example, “Twilight.” Edward is a killer, and Bella … doesn’t really care? When Edward says he’d like to suck Bella’s blood, Bella replies: “I trust you.” Cracked’s Erica Cantin asserts: “Any girl with the self-esteem of a shoe would call it a day right there.” Find out the other anti-women chick flicks here.

Dispatches From Last Night’s Midnight Screening Of “New Moon”

I have never in my life heard as much squealing as I did during last night’s midnight showing of “New Moon.” While I thought that perhaps some Twihards old enough to legally drink would come out for the first showing, as I arrived at the theater with my posse of eight, circa 9 p.m., we instantly felt a little old joining the line of mostly 18-to-20-year-olds. Almost everyone in front of us wore a Twilight-themed shirt—most of them handmade—with slogans like “Bite Me, Edward” and “Taylor, Can I Feel Your Abs?” Others had dribbled fake blood by their lips or painted red dots on their neck, and one especially enterprising young woman came dressed as one of the Volturi, complete with a cape. At 10 p.m., the theater ushers finally let us all into the theater. And approximately every 15 minutes afterwards, someone would shout, “An hour and a half until ‘New Moon,’” or “Just 20 minutes left,” to thunderous applause and whooping. I won’t lie—there was an in-theater wave. And when the house lights finally went down, I think I heard tears coming from the girl sitting beside me. Soon after, the trailer for “Remember Me” came on, and the whole theater lost it. But, surprisingly, it was Taylor Lautner‘s first appearance on screen that got the biggest hoots and hollers of the evening.

But enough of the play-by-play. After the jump, my favorite overheard quotes of the night. Keep reading »

I Was Once A Die-Hard Soap Opera Junkie

When I read an essay on Double X by Willa Paskin called “General Hospital Is The Most Violent Show On Television,” I got a little sad. “General Hospital” is my show! Or at least it was, until I stopped watching regularly a few years ago, after 15+ years of dedicated viewership. The news that James Franco, celebrated thespian, would be appearing as a thug on the show has made deep thinkers and film aficionados suddenly take notice of the long-running soap. But Paskin did a truly fabulous job of summing up the appeal of “General Hospital” — the reasons why a serious actor like Franco might want to appear on it — and I felt jealous that I hadn’t written it myself.
