Gossip Girl: Chuck Bass Needs Love, Not Sex

Last night’s episode was a total re-enactment of the favorite teen movie “Cruel Intentions.” Blair was Kathryn, conniving bitch with a secret sexual side, Chuck was Sebastian, the bad boy with a secret good heart, and Vanessa was Annette, the do-gooder who the bad boy tries to persuade. There was a bet for Chuck to destroy Vanessa, and the reward being sex with Blair. Just like in the movie, there was a bet for Sebastian to destroy Annette, with a reward of sleeping with Kathryn. In the end, the boy wins the bet but decides he doesn’t want the girl. He wants more. Keep reading »

Whitney Port Arrives In New York

Whitney Port, formerly of “The Hills,” moved to New York a couple months ago to work for designer Diane von Furstenburg. Come Dec. 29, she’s back on MTV in “The City,” which is “The Hills” on the other coast. We hope this doesn’t ruin Whitney for us. She always seemed like the smartest, most-together cast member on “The Hills.” From the short preview above, it seems that Whitney will hang with socialite Olivia Palermo and be fought over by two cute boys.

What’s So Great About Rachel Maddow?

MSNBC has always been my news network of choice (sorry CNN, Fox News, and C-SPAN!) — I loved Tim Russert and was always an avid “Meet The Press” watcher, plus I generally just enjoyed the rapport between the network’s anchors, especially during election years. But after Russert’s passing my loyalty was kind of up for grabs again. Rachel Maddow has kept me a MSNBC loyalist — a frequent panelist on shows like “Hardball” and Keith Olbermann’s show, she recently scored her own show on the network at 9pm and has had HUGE ratings since practically the first episode. In fact, the number of viewers for that hour of television on the network has DOUBLED. Why? Keep reading »

Now that season five has ended, we still have “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” to get our weekly Tim Gunn fix, but now we have him whenever we want him because Bravo is selling a Tim Gunn talking bobblehead doll.

    This weekend Sarah Palin did Saturday Night Live and her Double-D doppleganger did a skin flick for Hustler called “Nailin’ Paylin!” So, how does the porn star stack up next to Tina Fey’s dead-on impression?

Sigh, if only we could solve all our diplomatic problems with a threesome. [Trend Hunter]

    Sarah Palin: The Most Sexist Of Them All

    This weekend, Sarah Palin finally made her much anticipated appearance on “Saturday Night Live”, showing up in two skits written just for her. To tell you the truth, it seemed like the show was actually laughing at Palin rather than with her — the second skit, featuring Amy Poehler rapping, was seriously pretty…insulting. Additionally, the “highlight” of the first sketch was when Alec Baldwin told Palin that she was “hotter in person.” Considering her campaign thought Tina Fey’s portrayal was sexist, it was very interesting that she participated in a comedy routine which only focused on her physical appearance. Personally, this just supports my theory that the most sexist treatment of Palin comes from Palin herself. Keep reading »
