Gotta admit, I wasn’t necessarily the hugest fan of Charlie on Lost — for starters, Dominic Monaghan played a Hobbit in those snoozeville Lord of the Rings movies (I have a similar prejudice against Elijah Wood for this reason). Second, Charlie’s character was kind of predictable with the heroin addiction and the “Claire, what about the baaaaaby?”-lines. But then Charlie turned out to be the ultimate hero in the final episode of last season and I totally cried. And then he started to seem hotter, especially in his brief “ghost” appearances this season. So when I saw that the image above (“Self-Portrait. Charlie.”) was part of an exhibit of photographs Monaghan has taken called “Happy Accidents”, I was totally won over by the lil’ guy. He’s cute, and he plays a good hero, and he takes nice pictures! Like the one after the jump, of Lost super hotties, Sawyer and Jack. Keep reading »
So, we’re basically on the edge of seats waiting for the bazillionth season of The Bachelor to premiere next week (this time the hottie is a Brit!), but have no fear, there’s plenty more matchmaking poop floating in the crackpot colander know as reality TV! The CW network is set to premiere Farmer Wants A Wife on April 30, a show that will follow one straw-chewing okie as he tries to find love among 10 city-slickin’ women. Question: Is the farmer rich? Because no city gal is trading in her Manolos for manure if there isn’t a little cash in it. Not to be cynical or anything. The show, sadly, is after one of our other most favorite shows, America’s Next Top Model, so it is possible that we will be lured in if there’s nothing better to watch.

Oh Eliot Spitzer, what were you thinking? The Governor from New York admitted yesterday that he had been linked to a prostitution ring and government officials are pushing for him to resign or risk impeachment. But what’s really got our goat is the fact that this is yet another case of a powerful guy with a solid family risking it all for a little fun playing doctor with a hooker. In an article in AM New York, a psychotherapist says that high-powered people with fast-paced jobs and responsibility like dangerous, illicit, illegal behavior because it gives them that rush that they can’t get from anywhere else, since they’ve developed such a high-threshold for mental and emotional stimulation. Okay, fine, get that, but why are they also so stupid? “All reasoning and respect for the law go out the window,” says Jonathan Alpert.

Hide your barely legal daughter, the Girls Gone Wild CEO is out of jail. After 11 months in prison, Joe Francis is as free as a drunk sorority girl at Mardi Gras. He posted $1.5 million dollars bond in Reno and will now stand trial for tax evasion in Florida. However that’s just the tip of the charges. What started as 73 indictments in Panama City for taping underage spring breakers has crumbled to only four felony and two misdemeanor charges and a civil suit by a group of seven women. The thirty-five year old millionaire claims the women lied about their ages and his lawyers promised none of their footage was used. He refuses to settle out of court because he insists his actions are all within the letter of the law and the judge was biased because his former business partner was the prosecuting attorney. So what’s our verdict? Legal mumbo jumbo aside, those chickadees did sign a contract in their urge to get on camera and now he’s paying the price for their 15 minutes. Sure it’s sad and gross that this is the way he makes his millions, but technically it’s legal. You can read the full sob story on Francis’ website. We doubt you’ll feel sorry for him — we don’t — but the whole mess seems like one enormous battle of the boobs. [Beijing News] Keep reading »
