R.I.P., Leslie Nielsen


Sad face. Leslie “Don’t Call Me Shirley” Nielsen died this weekend from complications from pneumonia. Apparently, Nielsen was a science-fiction movie actor before he discovered his comedy genius in the classic “Airplane!” and went on to make spoof flicks like the “Naked Gun” and “Police Squad!” Sigh. Those movies are totally what I watch when I’m feeling depressed—the humor is so silly and deadpan, it’s impossible not to laugh. We’ll miss you, Leslie. [EW] Keep reading »

You may not know Rich Cronin, the frontman of the late ’90s group LFO, by name—he never hit it as big as some of his fellow boy banders.

Anna Nicole Smith Look-Alikes Wanted For New Reality Show

There’s only one look that works for clothes by Frank Rodriguez, Anna Nicole Smith‘s personal designer: buxom and blond. But since Anna Nicole is dead, Rodriguez is heading to TV land for the next best thing. He’s searching for an Anna Nicole look-alike to fill his pink, bedazzled dresses. The reality show competition will be shot documentary-style and castings will happen next week in L.A., according to producers. Judging from Anna Nicole’s fashion choices before her death, it does take a special woman to carry off his designs. But it also seems Rodriguez, who was often featured on “The Anna Nicole Show,” wants to get his mug on the tube again. And airtime is the only incentive for the would-be look-alikes because there’s no cash prize for the winner. She/he might not even be paid for the modeling work. I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s extremely creepy to not only associate your business with your dead friend, but then also to search out someone who looks like that friend in order to make money.
