This girl wins the prize for Best Reaction of All Time. At first, you’re bummed that this girl on “The Today Show” could care less that she won a spot as a kid reporter, as she adopts a blank stare that goes on forevs. But then the tension starts to build … and she starts breathing harder. Then all of a sudden it’s so much more than you expected, and omigod, the screeching. I dare you to not smile. You simply can’t do it. I want to put her in a room and tell her she’s won stuff all day and then bottle that air and sell it to sad people. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

unSweetined, Jodie Sweetin‘s book about her drug addiction and recovery, officially hits bookstores tomorrow, and the former “Full House” star spoke to Matt Lauer on “Today” this morning. As we know from reading an excerpt from the book, Jodie was still using when she began touring the country, warning college students about the dangers of using drugs. The day before she caught a flight to speak to students at Marquette University, she had partied for hours, drinking alcohol and using ecstasy and cocaine. She even bought some coke, which she hid in her makeup compact, on the flight. Keep reading »
Mariah Carey visited “Today” this morning to promote her just-released album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. She even brought along her own crystal-encrusted microphone and mic stand, as only a true diva does. Listen to her piercing high notes (and watch the accompanying hand gestures) in the video above. She sings the 1984 classic “I Want to Know What Love Is” with a children’s choir. [Today] Keep reading »
First, we had to swear off “The View” when we found out that Kate Gosselin and Meghan McCain would be sitting down at the table with Joy, Whoopi, et al. Now, “The Today Show” is gonna be off limits, too. Guess who they’ve hired to be a special correspondent, reporting a story per month? Jenna Bush. Yep, the Bush twin who made underage drinking an artform and who consistently drove her secret service detail batty. Here’s what Jenna, who also managed to squeeze a book deal out of the whole being-a-former-president’s-daughter thing, had to say about her new gig. “It wasn’t something I’d always dreamed to do. But I think one of the most important things in life is to be open-minded and to be open-minded for change.” Uh, Jenna? Your puppy didn’t just die—you just got the ultimate cushy gig hosting on one of the most popular shows on television. If you’re not feeling it, I could find you, uh, thousands of broadcast journalism majors who’d be down. [People] Keep reading »
Kate Gosselin‘s “Today Show”
“Today” spoke with Sarah Palin while she was on a fishing trip in a remote village in Alaska just three days after her strange and sudden resignation. She said that after she was tapped to run for VP last August, everything changed. Now, Palin is sick of playing political games. Will she run for president in 2012? “I don’t know what the future holds,” She said. “You can’t predict what the next fish run’s going to look like, much less what’s going to happen in the next couple of years. My focus is on my state still, and it always will be. And my family and what is best for them.” So, that’s not a no? Keep reading »
Meet Isabella, a modern-day Lassie. This golden retriever adopted three Bengal tiger cubs after their mother abandoned them. That’s right, tiger cubs. While raising her own litter last year, Isabella also weaned cubs Nasira, Anjika, and Sidani and became their surrogate mother. The alternative animal family was so unbelievably adorable that enough people flocked to the Safari Zoological Park in Kansas and the zoo was saved from shutting down. But all good things must come to end. Now that the tigers have grown up a bit, they must say goodbye to their “mother.” It’s true, tigers are instinctively predatory and dangerous so it is safer for Isabella to be separated as the cubs grow, but I wish it wasn’t so. Even the zoo’s owners Tom and Allie Harvey have chronicled the animal family in a book called Tiger Pups and are gearing up for the tigers’ first birthday celebration. Should be a purrrrrfect party. Yeah, I know that was bad. [The Today Show] Keep reading »
This morning on the “Today” show, Matt Lauer hinted that the Duggar family would be on Monday’s show to make a big announcement. We are just sitting on the edge of our seat in anticipation! What could the news be?! We have a few ideas…
- Michelle got her tubes ties and/or Jim Bob got a vasectomy — they just can’t afford to get pregnant again in this economy.
- The couple is pregnant with their 19th child.
- The eldest Duggar son, Josh, and his wife, Anna, are expecting and Michelle and Jim Bob are going to be grandparents!
- The family is going on tour as a modern-day Partridge family.
- Jim Bob, who served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003, is announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. If he gets elected, their new show will be called “The Duggars Go to Washington,” and their kids will attend Sasha and Malia Obama’s school.
