Okay, fine, I’ll admit it. I’m a little mad at The CW for canceling “Hellcats,” the show starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale as competitive college cheerleaders that happened to be loosely based on my book, CHEER!. That said, I’m getting over it because they are bringing two of my favorites—Sarah Michelle Gellar and Rachel Bilson—back to the small screen after years off the air.
After the jump, check out the network’s new offerings that we will absolutely be DVRing. Keep reading »
Thank you, Mr. Ghetto, for teaching us the latest dance craze, the Walmart bounce. Whatta whatta whatta whirl! It’s true! Da club is so over, the new hot spot to meet somethin’ is Walmart. It makes perfect sense. Everything a lady needs to stay sassy and classy can be found in the aisles of a Walmart superstore: grocery, boy shorts, lingerie, Massengill, and a cart to hold onto while she backs that thing up. One question: what exactly does it mean to have a “Louisiana purchase?” Please ‘splain. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Beyoncé debuted her “Run The World (Girls)” music video on “American Idol” last night and it’s the same-old Beyoncé motifs we know and (sometimes) love: scantily clad beauties declaring their independence and power through bellydancing. Queen Beyoncé’s got a court of statuesque handmaidens — and even a real, live lion. When a gang of nondescript male invaders penetrate her lady-sanctuary (no, that’s not a euphemism), Queen B challenges the blokes to a dance-off. I’ll let you guess who wins. Keep reading »
I cannot believe that “The Oprah Show” is coming to an end next week. Seriously, I’ve been watching since I was, like, eight and I always thought I’d make it onto her couch. I guess it’s time to let that dream go. Sigh. After 25 seasons, the Big O is filming her final three episodes. Insiders say the final shows will be over-the-top, star-studded extravaganzas. Like we would expect anything less. Celebs like Madonna, Maria Shriver, Beyonce, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, and Katie Holmes are set to appear. God only knows kind of tomfoolery will go down.

I love the adorable things Ellen DeGeneres has guests do when they’re on the show. Her latest brilliant idea? (Or at least, her writers’ latest brilliant idea?) While Colin Farrell was on the show to promote his new movie, a remake of the ’80s classic “Fright Night,” she and Colin dressed up in vampire costumes and hid in the studio bathroom, jumping out to terrify studio audience members. Cute. Also adorable—Colin’s reaction to Ellen asking him about playing a vampire. “It’s a novel idea in this day and age,” he joked. “When I heard they were making it, I was kinda like, ‘Oh Hollywood, what a bunch of unoriginal idiots. They’re going to destroy one of my favorite films. But then I read the script and I was like, ‘No. I like it.’” Hey, at least he’s honest. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Most networks want their own day for their upfront. But others don’t need to be queen for a full 24 hours—thus, Wednesday has become a catch-all day for presentations, which is strange because Friday appears to be wide open. Not only did CBS announce their fall television lineups this morning—TBS and TNT took their turns, too. And not to be left out in the cold, SyFy announced that they’ve picked up a new series, too. After the jump, the shows announced today that have me giddy to press the record button. Keep reading »
