Ellen DeGeneres, the ruler of daytime talk shows, has allegedly come out against Kris Jenner and her desperate attempts to continue her Kardashian brand via a talk show, which many people aren’t entirely crazy about. The National Enquirer has made a claim that Ellen is outraged over Kris’s explosion onto the scene, and the fact that her first airings did extremely well might be to blame for the minor dose of jealousy. But what apparently has Ellen even more bothered is the fact that Kris doesn’t take the role of talk show host seriously, that she doesn’t truly care about her guests but only the ratings she’ll garner.

On July 28, a police officer responded to reports of a burglary in progress at a home in LaGrange, Georgia. At the front door he discovered a sweaty, disoriented woman who claimed she had been traveling from Mississippi to find a “Walking Dead” actor, who she described as “her man.” Read more at The Stir…
That’s right folks, the reality TV judge we love to hate (and love to love) is going to have a little one of his own to give his branded form of “constructive criticism.”
The 53-year-old is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, 36. The two have been friends for a while, though they aren’t technically together. In fact, Cowell’s baby mama, rumored to be 10 weeks along, is still married to real-estate mogul Andrew Silverman. Before you’re too quick to judge the couple, don’t forget about new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who conceived before Kim’s divorce to Kris Humphries was actually finalized.

You probably know Wesley Warren Jr. as the man with the 132-pound nut. At first Warren didn’t want to undergo surgery for his scrotal lymphedema, but found it to be the best option for his health and safety. After all, wearing an upside-down hoodie to cover your ball in public, watching TV while resting your junk on a milk crate, and having your scrotum overtake your penis to the point that you lose your ability to control your pee is no way to live. Not to mention the severe anemia and depression Warren suffered due to his condition. In April of this year, he finally underwent a 13-hour procedure to remove his giant scrotal mass. Keep reading »
People are pretty technology-happy these days. We pore over rumors and specs on technology websites, we stand in line to get the newest gadgets, and we beat up people who dare own phones a couple years out of date. New technology isn’t just anticipated, it’s damn near fetishized. Witness the growing trend of “unboxing,” YouTube videos dedicated to providing loving, tender footage of someone delicately taking a new product out of its packaging. Look them up if you want, but maybe make sure there’s no one else in the room when you do it; they’re seriously almost pornographic. Read more at Cracked…
I’ve been willfully chained to my television for the past week, tearing through episodes of Jenji Kohan’s latest, “Orange Is The New Black” — and I highly recommend you do the same. For the uninitiated, this is the story of Piper Chapman, a bougie, well-meaning white lady who is plopped into a minimum security prison for a year to serve time for a brief incident as a mule for her drug-trafficking ex-girlfriend. I was reluctant at first to watch this show, my mind clouded with the memory of the last few seasons of “Weeds,” but after some urging from a trusted friend, I settled in and was instantly hooked. Here’s why.

Glory, glory! Today, SyFy announced that there will, indeed be a “Sharknado” sequel.
“Every once in a while, there is a perfect storm – on television. The fans are clamoring for a sequel. Or perhaps it will be a prequel … What we can guarantee is that ‘Sharknado 2′will be lots of fun. We’ll be announcing more details very soon. But we didn’t want our fans to worry they wouldn’t get their fill of more shark fin, I mean, fun next year,” said the EVP of SyFy programming.
As if that weren’t good enough news, SyFy is now accepting title suggestions for “Sharknado 2.” You can Tweet them to @SyfyMovies using the hashtag #Sharknado.
Unrelated, but totally related, this page of a screenplay about Squid-Shark-Alligator hybrids (written by an eight-year-old at summer camp) was posted on Reddit last night. SyFy, I think we’ve got a winner here. “Sharknado 2: The Attack Of The Squarklligators.” Jeremy London could star in it. Guy needs a comeback performance. You can see a larger photo of the image on the right after the jump. [Gossip Cop; Dangerous Minds]

When Nick and I moved, we sold our TV, and for the past couple months we’ve been toying with the idea of living a TV-free life. It was nice for awhile, but soon we realized we had turned into that special breed of hipster who says “I don’t watch TV,” but spends, like, six hours a day watching Netflix TV shows on their laptop. We love TV. So sue us. Last week, we decided to stop squinting at our laptops and bought a new TV. Since we didn’t have a table to put it on in the living room, we were like, “Hey, let’s put it in the bedroom for now! We can snuggle and have movie nights!” And yeah, that didn’t really work out.

Since the season finale of “Kitchen Nightmares” aired, it seems like the show is all anyone’s been talking about. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you must have been away from your computer all week or you live in a remote yurt in the woods. I’ll give you the briefest of brief updates and you can do the rest of the heavy lifting yourself if you’re interested. Spoilers after the jump. Keep reading »
Let’s play a game of “My Strange Addiction” Would You Rather. You go first. Would you rather drink blood or drink pee? You have to pick one, “neither” is not an option.
While you think about your answer, let’s take a moment to remember Carrie from last season, the woman who had been drinking her own urine — as well as using it to bathe, moisturize, and brush her teeth — for four years because she believed it helped send her cancer into remission. So, that’s your first choice.
Now, I’ll tell you about Michelle, the blood drinker who will be appearing on the March 20th episode. Just to clarify, she does not want to categorize herself as a vampire, she is simply someone who enjoys blood quite a lot. Keep reading »
