First there was “Jersey Shore,” then there was the UK’s “Geordie Shore” and now Italy is cashing in on its trashiest citizens. A new show called “Tamarreide” has been airing since mid-June, focusing on young “tamarri,” which translates to “sleazeballs.” Instead of a beach house on the boardwalk, the Italia Uno network put eight “tamarri” under the age of 24 in a tour bus outfitted with sleeper sections, a kitchen, and a “sex suite.” According to The Daily Beast, one cast member, Marika, is a 22-year-old pole dancer and another, Manuel, 25, is a male stripper. In each episode, they visit a different Italian city like Rome or Florence, stay in a luxury hotel, and act like, well, sleazeballs. Who knew spray-tans and hair gel would be popular worldwide?

Last night on “The Bachelorette,” Ashley Hebert headed to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to whittle her cadre of men down from 11. Thanks to some Muay Thai boxing, a surprise elimination and some Ashley freak outs, it was a pretty darn entertaining episode. After the jump—the good, the bad, and the head-scratching moments.

Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything. Luckily, it is my full-time job. So from now on, every Monday, I’ll be bringing you a cheat sheet of what’s coming down the pipeline this week so you shall never feel lost again.
After the jump, the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, the movies you need to see, and much, much more. Keep reading »
Hollywood these days is all about positioning and spin, and—what can we say?— it’s made us more than a little jaded. In this new column, we will share some of our most out-there theories about what’s really going on in the celeb-u-verse. Now, keep in mind that none of this is based on fact or even on the testimony of anonymous sources. They are purely hunches, and we could be totally and completely wrong. That said, we would not be super surprised if, some day, it came out that a few of our theories were right.
I believe I’ve uncovered the hidden agenda of this season of “The Bachelorette.” Ashley Hebert doesn’t give a fig about finding love. And she doesn’t actually want to become a dentist, even though she’s in school for it. It seems to me that she’d be more interested in becoming a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.” The evidence after the jump. Keep reading »
“I now have the time to be committed to the nurturing of this network. The vacation I thought I was going to have is kind of over, at least for the time being. I have committed everything I have to this cable venture. I wouldn’t bet against me … I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me and I am going to make that happen, people. I don’t just want the interview. I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson.”
—Oprah tells The Hollywood Reporter that she is now 100% in over at OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. Her biggest dream for the station? Getting OJ Simpson, who is currently in prison for kidnapping and robbery, to tell the truth about what happened to Nicole Brown Simpson. If anyone can make it happen, it’s the Big O.

We love Kate Hudson. But even moreso, we love her mama, Goldie Hawn. So I am pretty darn excited that Goldie has signed on for a new prospective HBO series called “The Viagra Diaries,” about a woman who, when her husband has a midlife crisis and leaves her at 65, is left single for the first time in three decades. The show is being executive produced and written by Darren Star, the man behind “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Sex and the City.”
This is exciting on so many levels. Keep reading »
