Evelyn Lozada Shuts Down “Basketball Wives” Reunion Show

Sorry, “Basketball Wives” fans, but VH1 has pulled the plug on the show’s upcoming reunion special.

According to reports, producers at the network canceled the season five reunion because Evelyn Lozada refused to participate. Sources say the reality star bailed “because she’s sick and tired of talking about her split from ex-husband Chad Johnson” and she knew “the break-up would be the biggest topic on the reunion show.” Read more at Hello Beautiful…

  • CBS is cooking up a reboot of the witchy nighttime drama “Charmed,” which debuted in 1998 and only went off the air seven years ago. Can we cool it with the reboots, people? Aren’t there any new ideas in Hollywood anymore? [TVline]
  • Blake Shelton is slamming rumors that he and wife Miranda Lambert are “having a baby, divorcing, cheating and feuding with Cher” as total BS. [US Weekly]

Join Us! The Frisky Will Live Tweet During “Modern Family” Tonight

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching season five of “Modern Family” religiously since it premiered a month ago, and have since developed an unhealthy addiction to the Dunphys.

Something else I know? I need input when I have life-changing questions like What kind of bra is Sofia Vergara wearing that makes her boobs sit just below her chin like that? and Is Eric Stonestreet the most convincing straight guy to to play a gay guy in the history of TV?

That’s where you come in. Keep reading »

7 Female Masturbation Scenes That Weren’t Too Hot For TV

The CW could have made television masturbation history if its new pilot for 16th century-based castle drama “Reign” had aired as planned.  But unfortunately, the scene was so explicit that it made the press blush. In the uncut version, handmaid Kenna diddles herself in a stairwell only to be discovered by the King of France, who offers to assist her with the task, obviously.

So as not to outrage the Parents Television Council, the network made an executive decision to edit the scene down to nothing more than innuendo — a quick cut to the King’s hand reaching for Kenna’s privates. Womp, womp, womp. Maybe someday network TV will grow a large enough pair to show a handmaiden pleasuring herself, but for now, we’ll have to rely on cable TV.

Live Tweet With Us Tonight As “Glee” Says Goodbye To Finn/Cory Monteith In “The Quarterback”
Tears!

Get ready for heartbreak, Finchel fans. The most dreaded/anticipated episode in “Glee” history is here, and I, for one, have stocked up on Kleenex, because I will become a snot monster at exactly 9 p.m.

Tonight, “Glee” says goodbye to Finn Hudson in a special tribute episode to Cory Monteith, who passed away in July from a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol.

downton abbey college course

Stuck in a senioritis rut? Would a class on “Downton Abbey” make you stop texting during a lecture? Camden County College in New Jersey is now offering a course called “Downton Abbey: Life In A Country House.” At first I wanted to laugh, but it actually sounds really interesting. The course covers things like “The Inheritance Problem: Marriage, Women And Property” and “Technology Intrudes: Lights, Phones And Cars.” Surprisingly, this isn’t the only “Downton”-focused college class available: Oakland University in Michigan also offers a course which meets at Meadow Brook Hall, a country-style house built in 1928. Students taking “The World of Downton Abbey: Revolution, Rebellion And Re-Creation” get to snack on scones and tea during class. But one important question: will they learn how to give a well-timed withering insult a la the Dowager Countess? [Vanity FairDetroit Free Press]

Fox Picks Up John Mulaney Sitcom: Get To Know The Comedian And “Saturday Night Live” Writer

John Mulaney

I like to think that Louis C.K. set the scene for other stand-up comedians to take over our televisions, one sitcom at a time: his uniquely-formatted single-camera show, “Louie,” is one of the best, most interesting things in entertainment right now, and is as ground-breaking today as it was when it first aired in 2010. But on the more traditional end, stand-up comedian and “SNL” writer John Mulaney’s eponymous series, “Mulaney,” has just been picked up for a full series run by Fox after being developed — and then dropped by — NBC. Said Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly of the venture, “John is one of the sharpest and most skilled next-generation comedic voices out there, who also happens to be surrounded by the best of the best on this new show.”

The comedy, which will be executive-produced by “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels (this bodes well!) and directed and written by Mulaney himself, stars his character as an “aspiring comedian who comes of age under the influence of his boss (Martin Short), his roommates, and his neighbors.” This news is exciting for a few reasons — firstly, John Mulaney is HILARIOUS. He’s also young (31) and adorable, which will make him a welcome addition to any TV lineup. But I’ll stop objectifying him for a second and move on to the more important things. Read on for more on John Mulaney, and check out some clips from his stand-up and interviews … Keep reading »

Rebel Wilson’s New Sitcom “Super Fun Night” Is Super Unfunny

Rebel Wilson in "Super Fun Night"

Well, that’s a disappointment! As much as we — and everyone else, because come on, who doesn’t love Rebel Wilson? — wanted the actress’s new show “Super Fun Night,” which premiered last night, to be the new best thing ever, the actuality of the show is more like our worst fears for it realized. The ABC sitcom takes the super funny, super adorable, super charming Wilson and turns her into a sort of punchline of herself whose main preoccupation is, “HEY GUYS, DON’T FORGET THAT I’M ALSO SUPER FAT.” It’s just a waste of a talented, multi-faceted comedienne’s breadth of humor and genuine ability. Like, how many Spanx jokes does a 22-minute pilot need? Four. The answer is four. Jezebel provided an excellent, if depressing, compilation of every fat joke from the first episode, and not only are they abundant to the point of superfluity, they’re also, well, not funny. (Furthermore, they stripped Rebel of her Australian accent, which unlike unfunny fat jokes is an actual crime against humanity.)

Is Naomi Campbell Getting Her Own Talk Show?

Watch out, Wendy Williams, Naomi Campbell may be catwalking her way through! Word on the street is the British supermodel may be getting her own talk show.

During a recent interview with Vogue.com, Naomi’s representative said she’s currently in negotiations with “a major U.S. network.”

“I can confirm that there are offers on the table,” the rep said. “But I can’t elaborate further at this time due to ongoing negotiations.” Read more at Hello Beautiful…

To Celebrate The Emmys, Richard Simmons Cosplayed As Daenerys Targaryen

There is really nothing I can say about how Richard Simmons—who, in addition to being a pop culture fitness icon, co-starred in one of the best “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” sketches ever, just FYI—took to Twitter during the Emmys to post pictures of himself cosplaying as characters from “Game of Thrones”, “Breaking Bad”, “American Horror Story”, and “Behind the Candelabra”. Literally nothing. My brain is just going ??!?!??!??!??!?!. It’s so beautiful. Read more at The Mary Sue…
