On Tuesday night, Katie Couric sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to talk about where she’s going from here. She discussed her new talk show but also said that she has a new reality series in the works. “I’m particularly excited about that. That’s what clinched the deal for me,” she said. “Because, you know, I thought people really deserved an inside look at my life because it’s so fascinating,” Cut to a promo of “Kate Plus 80.” “Okay you little monsters, dinner time,” Katie yells into a bullhorn, before slingshotting pasta and spaghetti sauce all over a big group of kids. “You get what you get and you don’t get upset.” Who knew she had good comedic timing?

“It’s so funny how different life could have been. I went to so many auditions. I remember my audition for ‘Heroes.’ I went in right after Hayden Panettiere … I mean, I haven’t been around very long. I can’t expect everyone to have seen ‘The House Bunny.’ Oh God. I am having such waves of internal embarrassment, which now I’m admitting on a tape recorder. This is so one of the things I should keep in my head.”
—Emma Stone looks yowza in yellow on the cover of Elle and, inside, talks about her quick rise to fame over the last few years. How fascinating that she could have been Claire on “Heroes.” Basically, I just love that Emma hasn’t let her status as an It Girl go to her head. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Is it almost the year 2030? I certainly hope so, because I plan to be traveling a lot that year. The hotel chain Travelodge has published a study about what we can expect our hotel sleep accommodations to be like in the future. Here’s what we have to look forward to according to engineer Ian Pearson:
We will be able to replay our favorite dream from a menu just like choosing a movie. Also, we will be able to link into dreams with our partner or family and friends and enjoy a shared dream experience. Remote virtual love making would allow individuals to ‘connect with their partner’ while away from home, although lenses could be worn to adjust how their partner looks.

It’ll be about a year until we get to see Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator,” which is based on the romance novel written by Saddam Hussein. But today the Huffington Post brings us the first image of Sacha’s newest alter ego. In this flick, Sacha plays a Saddam-esque dictator who travels to New York City when a lookalike goat herder assumes his rule. As the log line for the movie reads, it’s the “heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” What do you think—does Sacha look like he could rule a country with an iron fist here? I love that he’s channeled Marge Simpson, both on his head and his chin. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
