Who We Would Cast In “The Carrie Diaries”

Sex and the City 2” shook me free of my Carrie/Samantha/Miranda/Charlotte addiction. These days, I can’t even watch reruns of the show without getting flashbacks to that awful Abu Dhabi market scene. And yet, I’m kind of interested in the prospect of a TV show based on The Carrie Diaries, Candace Bushnell’s prequel to the show. Apparently, The CW is interested in optioning the property, and are gunning for Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage—the dream team behind “The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl“—to produce it.

This actually makes a whole lot of sense. The CW specializes in excellent trashtastic high school series. Not to mention that this one would different from “Gossip Girl” since Carrie grew up in suburban Connecticut. And hello, Carrie went to school in the ’80s, so I am picturing lots of neon and lace gloves. Keep reading »

Jennifer Lawrence Records Song For “The Hunger Games”

Surprise! Jennifer Lawrence is not only stunning and an amazing actress who got an Oscar nomination right out of the gate; the girl apparently has pipes, too. Like Robert Pattinston did for the “Twilight” soundtrack, Jennifer has recorded a song for her movie, “The Hunger Games.” The song is called “Rue’s Lullaby” and she worked with Danny Elfman and producer T-Bone Burnett, the guy behind “Crazy Heart,” on it. And T-Bone says she rocked. “It was beautiful,” he said. “She did great. She’s singing great.” Might we see a musical in her future? Or perhaps she and Rob can start a superband?

Russian Unicorn: Bad Lip-Reading Michael Bublé


Lip-dubbing — videos in which people mouth the words to songs — is so last year. I’m all about Bad Lip-Reading! The jokesters behind this trend dub their own lyrics — based on what it looks like the artist is singing by (badly) reading their lips — over popular music videos. Check out their bad lip-reading take on Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet,” which they call “Russian Unicorn.” So much better than the original, I gotta say. [YouTube] Keep reading »

“Quirky Girl”: The Other Side Of The Manic Pixie Dream Girl


The Manic Pixie Dream girl — every woman kinda sorta wishes she could be her, every guy kinda sort wants to bang her. Right? If you’ve got a festering love/hate relationship with Zooey Deschanel’s character in “(500) Days Of Summer” — and other relentlessly quirky girls like her — then you’ll appreciate this Funny Or Die spoof featuring Teresa Palmer and the drool-worthy Aaron Paul. Because sometimes quirky is just crazy. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Maggie Gyllenhaal Discovers A Vibrator In “Hysteria”

The time before the invention of the vibrator is a dark period of world history which I prefer not to think about. But imagine, ladies, if you will, a period when all of a woman’s problems were attributed to “hysteria,” a vague pathological affliction which doctors found could best be cured by applying pressure to a woman’s most delicate regions. A suffering woman could be relieved of her hysteria by hand, of course, but the world needed a device to get the job done more quickly. “Hysteria” premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and stars Hugh Dancy as a young doctor in Victorian England and Maggie Gyllenhaal as his boss’s daughter, who knows at the root of all these hysterics is a need for pleasure. God bless electricity, that’s all I have to say. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Danielle Staub Says Reality TV Made Her Suicidal

Disclaimer: You may want to flog me for what I’m about to say, but I must say it. As a person who has suffered a serious bout of depression, I have the utmost empathy for anyone who is suicidal. But I just have to question Danielle Staub‘s motivation for doing an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” in which she says that she was suicidal after appearing on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” It seems a little like she is trying to capitalize on Russell Armstrong’s suicide because, in true form, she jumped at the opportunity to force herself into the spotlight. Now, if I’m wrong about Staub’s motivations, then I’m sorry. But why would she share her suicidal thoughts with her kids? And why would she tell us about it? Why, if she thinks the pressures of reality television contributed to her depression, would she continue to be part of that world? (She is currently a cast member on Vh1′s “Famous Food”). Something about her confession doesn’t sit right with me. This woman needs to sit down with a professional, not “ET.” [ONTD]
