On last night’s episode of “True Blood,” Lafayette returned to the grill at Merlotte’s, Sam and Daphne bonded over being shapeshifters (though we still don’t anything about its connection to her big scar), and Mary Ann moved into Tara and Sookie’s house because that big ol’ mansion she was living in? Not hers. Meanwhile, in Dallas, we found out why Eric is so concerned about finding Godrick — it turns out, Godrick is his maker! Also, Godrick is totally the world’s first twink. Sookie decided she’d have to infiltrate the Fellowship Of The Sun to find out if they’ve got Godrick, but little does she know that Jason is one of them now. In fact, Jason is in so deep, he got a handy from Sarah, the preacher’s wife, in the bathtub as a reward for being such a devoted soldier of God! Clip above. Keep reading »
“Twilight” groupies who can’t stop—won’t stop—at prowling Forks, Washington, for Edward and Bella, rejoice! On August 10, a weekly show with the news and gossip about “New Moon,” the next flick in the “Twilight” saga, will debut on ReelzChannel. Executives say they “Twilight Weekly: Spotlight” will be the first-ever weekly TV show about an upcoming movie. Whether this staves off or revs up the next deluge of Robert Pattinson/Taylor Lautner obsession until it comes out in November remains to be seen. [NY Times]

There’s really no sense in trying to goad you into going to the movie theater this week, because you already know what’s there. In fact, you’ve been waiting in anticipation for months, crossing the days off calendars. It’s epic. Not only is “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” out now (approximately eight months late), but “500 Days of Summer,” which seemingly took 500 days to arrive in theaters, is out, too. If you’re not already waiting in line, you’re too late. Get ‘er done. Keep reading »
Everyone at The Frisky is a hardcore music lover and our tastes range from Taylor Swift and M.I.A. to Sleater-Kinney and Jenny Owens Young. Perhaps the only time we were more passionate about music was when we were in our teens and dreamed of starting a band. Jessica Hopper knows all about that teenage desire to rock and has written The Girls’ Guide to Rocking, giving teen girls today what we would have killed for back in the day. The book promises to teach readers “how to start a band, book gigs, and get rolling to rock stardom.” Keep reading »
I’ve been waiting for this day for months. “(500) Days Of Summer,” which is guaranteed to be my new most favorite movie, is in theaters today! Sadly, however, I’m under the weather and likely won’t be getting off my couch to go see it tonight, as planned. Sniff. But the film, starring eternally adorable Zooey Deschanel and uber hottie Joseph Gordon Levitt, is hardly the first indie chick flick. After the jump, five you may have missed that don’t star Sandra, Reese, or Katherine. I know what I’m renting from Blockbuster tonight! Keep reading »
MTV‘s “16 and Pregnant” was a hot mess last night. Catelynn and Tyler are really sweet, smart, loving, mature kids who want the best for their baby, but their mom and pops are pretty screwed up. Mom is a drunk driver; Tyler’s dad is an ex-con. And, their parents are married. Yeah, Catelynn and Tyler are boyfriend and girlfriend, soon-to-be teen parents—and step-siblings. Wait, is this “Jerry Springer”?
Watch the kids tell their parents their choice is to give their daughter up for adoption because they both want to go to college—and how their parents try to convince them to raise their baby in this bats**t family instead. [MTV] Keep reading »
Surprise! Bravo’s barely publicized “Watch What Happens: Live” premieres tonight. Since you probably haven’t heard about it, let me fill you in. Andy Cohen, Bravo’s Senior Vice President of Production and Programming—a.k.a, the guy who hosts all of the channel’s reunion shows—takes the reigns Thursdays at midnight for a live run down of his favorite weekly moments in pop culture. The half-hour show will include “Bravolebrities” and A-list guests, claims Bravo’s website. Honestly, this show sounds a lot like “The Soup” or “Best Week Ever,” only with our Bravo faves like Danielle Staub.
