Robert Pattinson On Every Talk Show Couch Imaginable

Earlier in the week, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner made the talk show rounds. But with “New Moon” opening tonight at midnight (yes, I’ll be there), it’s time to send out the big gun—Robert Pattinson. Last night, he did “Letterman” and this morning he stopped by “Today.” Check out the clips below.

This Isn’t The First Swine Flu Outbreak We’ve Had

The above documentary by CBS’s “60 Minutes” discusses the swine flu epidemic of 1976 and the federal government-sponsored inoculations that possibly caused 500 people to get Guillain-Barré syndrome, a neurological disorder that causes the body’s immune system to attack the peripheral nervous system. At first, sufferers feel a tingling sensation in the legs,…

Jenna Jameson Made It Possible For Female Porn Performers To Say “I’m Not Gonna Do It In The Back”

Today’s “Oprah” focused on the porn industry and how more women are watching adult films these days. While the show’s highlight, for me, was seeing journalist Lisa Ling’s reaction as she watched a sex scene being filmed, Oprah’s interview with former porn star Jenna Jameson, who is now retired from the industry, wa…

When In Rome: Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi “Parties” With 200 Italian Women

When Muammar Gaddafi went to speak at the U.N. General Assembly in September, he drew controversy — he was protested, shut out of local housing, and his nearly two-hour speech was disparaged in the news. But the Libyan leader may have found a new way to speak his message to the people.

An Incontinent Beaver Gets An “Early Show” Correspondent In the Eye

Being an “Early Show” correspondent must be kinda rough. In addition to having to wake up hours before the sun, you have to have big hair and a huge smile plastered on your face at all times, except when you’re delivering a sad story, at which point you have to assume serious face. Oh,…

I love Serena Williams. And I love her even more after watching this clip of her on “The Daily Show” last night, where she teaches Jon Stewart how to dance if he wants to pick up the…

Rihanna Has A Fun Interview With Alexa Chung, For A Change

Rihanna was a guest on “It’s On With Alexa Chung” today, and Alexa was able to give the girl a break by moving the conversation past the domestic violence she experienced at the hands of Chris Brown. Rihanna talks briefly about the spike in calls to domestic abuse hotlines after her “20/20″ interview, but…

Chris Brown Says He’ll Never Put His Hands On A Woman Again

Chris Brown sat down with Sway at MTV to discuss his assault of Rihanna on Feb. 8. He tries to portray himself as a changed man who is learning from his actions, even going as far as to say that he knows for certain he’ll never assault another woman and enjoys learning to control…

John Krasinski Shares How He Proposed To Emily Blunt

When a couple gets engaged, the first thing people want to know is what the ring looks like, the second is how he proposed. We’ve already seen Emily Blunt’s engagement ring, and today, John Krasinski told the ladies of “The View” how he asked her to marry him. John’s proposal was old school:…

Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Remember, remember the Fifth of November. This was the day that Guy Fawkes was thwarted in his attempt to explode the British Parliament in the 17th Century (and was caught, tortured, and killed). Our friends across the pond celebrate and commemorate with bonfires, burnings in effigy, and such. This side of the pond, I’m…

The Case Of The Porn Star Vs. America’s Sweetheart

You know those stories that are just sad all around, the ones in which no one really wins? The story of former adult actress Janine Lindemulder battling to regain custody of her 5-year-old daughter, Sunny, from Sandra Bullock and Jesse James looks to be one of those stories. Lindemulder was recently released from prison,…

Hopefully Kanye West Won’t Interrupt Taylor Swift On “SNL” This Weekend

My favorite “country” music singer, Taylor Swift, will be hosting and performing on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and the promo pays tribute to the Kanye West debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards. Yes, this incident was rather amusing and ridiculous, but I’m gonna be a little annoyed if there are multiple…

Jaleel White Is On The “Road To The Altar”

We don’t often witness the planning of a wedding from the groom’s perspective. There’s no male equivalent of the bridezilla (though “go-getter grooms” are supposedly on the rise), and the level of involvement of the groom is usually up to him. “Road to the Altar,” a mockumentary-style web series, is different though, taking a…

Scientology Leader Shows His True Crazy On “Nightline”

This weekend, “Nightline” ran a special on everyone’s favorite topic, the insanity of the Church of Scientology. The whole thing was actually pretty boring. (Martin Bashir interviews drive me crazy. Why does he insist on doing the crinkled brow, “I’m really listening to you” thing, followed by repeating what the person just said with…

Quickies: Joan Collins Is Bringing Glamour Back To The U.K. & Beat Up A Kardashian

Joan Collins is taking British women to task for their lazy grooming on her new makeover show, “Joan Does Glamour.” [Jezebel] — Gosh, I want her accent.

Drugs, Alcohol, Celebrities And Television Can Be A Deadly Combination


Jet lag? I think not. In this 2007 interview to promote “ER” in Australia, John Stamos was clearly wasted out of his mind. In fact, the first word out of his mouth was “vodka.” He followed it up by reading the host’s lines off the teleprompter and making crude gestures. Two years later,…

Vanilla Ice Hawks Beer In South Africa

I’m not exactly proud of it, but there was a time in my life when the mere mention of the name Vanilla Ice would make my pulse quicken. That time was 1990, when I wore out my cassette of To The Extreme. A few years later, Vanilla was a musical footnote who made the…

Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Nip Pic Isn’t What You Think

Clearly, “The View” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck never saw the episode of “Seinfeld” where Elaine sent a Christmas card with an accidental nip slip to everyone she knew, prompting the famous line, “Your whole life, you go through painstaking efforts to hide your nipple and BOOM, suddenly hundreds of people get their own personal shot…
