Jessica Simpson Surprised To Find That “Fat” Women Are Considered Attractive Elsewhere

Jessica Simpson makes her long-awaited return to TV on March 14 when “The Price of Beauty” debuts on VH1. On the show, Jessica explores the question: What makes women in different countries feel beautiful? This is the same program with the theme song written by Jessica’s maybe-boyfriend Billy Corgan, that required $25,000 worth of hair and makeup for Jessica per episode, and had her storming down the runway at the Olzem Suer fashion show in Paris.

Do you think it’ll open people’s eyes and change our perspectives about beauty — or will it simply be another chance to watch Jessica acting silly on television? [via NY Post] Keep reading »

Brandy’s Drawn On Alien Eyebrows

Is that Spock? All Brandy is missing are some elf-ears and she could pass for the bazaarly-browed alien alum. It’s not bad enough she’s promoting a new reality show on VH1, she has to do it looking like her eyebrows are scared of the rest of her face? Girl, grab a kleenex, wipe wipe wipe, and hire a professional to pencil those bad boys in. Keep reading »

Paula Abdul Walks The “VH1 Divas” Stage In Ellen DeGeneres’ Converse Sneakers


Last night, VH1 held their annual “Divas” concert, featuring Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, and Jordin Sparks, even though attaching the label “diva” to these gals is questionable. During the show, which coincidentally took place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music right down the road from my apartment, host Paula Abdul made a funny. She dressed up as Ellen DeGeneres, who’s replacing her as a judge on “American Idol” this season, and imitated her dopest dance moves, grooving her way over to a replica of Ellen’s set. “Why y’all staring at me? Can’t a girl try out a new job?” she said. “All kidding aside—nothing but love Ellen. And I wish you the best of luck on the new gig. And you gotta call me if you have any Simon problems because, well, I know him best.” Keep reading »

You Know You Want It: “Tool Academy 2″

Ah, “Tool Academy.” Quite possibly one of the most awesomely awful shows on TV — and I mean that in a good way. Dedicated to seeking out guys who act like tools and sending them off to Tool Academy for an inner and outer makeover with their fed-up girlfriends, VH1′s reality dude show is one of my favorites. Why? I do not know. I guess there’s something deeply appealing about seeing total jerks being turned into better men. There are too many guys out there with spray tans, spiked hair, and man thongs for this country not to need a show like this. In any case, as it turns out, there’s a “Tool Academy 2″ on the way! And this season actually looks more obnoxious. Check out the latest batch of tools here. Premieres August 31. Keep reading »

These Singers Are Not “Divas”

VH1 is bringing back its “VH1 Divas” concert series Sept. 17 after a four-year hiatus. But don’t get too excited yet. Some idiot over at the network thinks Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele should join the ranks of Mary J. Blige, Cher, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, who have all been honored on the broadcast concert before. These four young singers, however, are not divas — they’re not even on their way to becoming divas! Keep reading »

VH1 Gets Spicy

VH1 must be starting to think it’s the Spice network, because two of their just-picked-up shows star well-seasoned hip-hop veterans. Sandra Denton (you know her as Pepa of Salt-n-Pepa) and Rozanda Thomas (a.k.a Chilli from TLC) are each getting their own reality shows where they try to find the man of their dreams, a la “Rock of Love.” Both shows are currently untitled, so I’m looking forward to seeing how VH1 will try to spin the two identical ideas in different directions. Interestingly, the two shows are coming out of different production companies. Which makes me wonder if VH1 signed on for both so that I could have fun making spice jokes? [Variety] Keep reading »
