“True Blood” Season 3 Poster Foreshadows Sam’s Future

The latest “True Blood” teaser poster foreshadows the next shape Sam Merlotte will assume. We saw the dog in season one, the fly in season two, so we’re guessing he’ll appear as a bull in season three. Keep reading »

Who Will Be David Duchovny’s New Love Interest On “Californication”?

When last we saw “Californication”‘s Hank Moody (David Duchovny), he was being hauled off to jail after a fight with love Karen that spilled out into the street. So it’s no surprise that when the Showtime series returns for its fourth season later this year, Hank will have a new love interest. Who is it? Find out! Keep reading »

Bye-Bye, “Betty”

It’s such a shame that almost as soon as Betty Suarez ditched the braces, plucked her eyebrows and started wearing funky ensembles that were cool rather than weird, “Ugly Betty” is over. From episode one, I loved the show. Part of it was that, when the series began, I was an associate editor at Jane and appreciated that, while incredibly hyperbolic, the portrayal of Mode wasn’t that far off from what I witnessed on a daily basis. Sure, I never donned a poncho, but there were definitely moments when I, with my dreams of being a “serious” journalist, felt grossly out of step with the world around me. And having served as an editor-in-chief’s assistant for two years, I really liked how the show captured that intense bond between editors and assistants in a much more real way than, say, “The Devil Wears Prada.” As the show progressed, I loved how Betty started to come into her own, landing an assistant editor gig and breaking hearts along with way.

But I wasn’t exactly sure what to make of last night’s episode. (If you’re waiting to watch it, I would stop reading now.) Keep reading »

Dating Don’ts: Valuable Lessons Gleaned from Reality TV

reality tv photo

Let’s face it, the best thing about reality TV is its ability to make ourselves feel better about our own lives. Bumming ‘bout your bubble butt—hey, at least you’re not as large as the peeps on “The Biggest Loser.” Angry your boyfriend cheated? Jerry Springer will make you grateful he was banging some coworker, and not knocking up your mom.

Oddly enough, most of these shows seem to be trying to deliver a message or lesson. The problem is that there’s a huge discrepancy between What They Want You to Learn (WTWYTL) and the Actual Lessons Learned (ALL). Luckily, I’m here to translate.

“The Hills” Stars Say No Way Adam DiVello Groped Heidi Montag

Just as Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman issued a joint statement saying that “Desperate Housewives” producer Marc Cherry had never been anything but professional to them and has only fostered a positive working environment, the cast of “The Hills” has found themselves in a similar situation. On Tuesday, Life & Style reported that Heidi Montag was planning to sue the creator of “The Hills,” Adam DiVello, over an incident that took place at a photo shoot last month. A source told the magazine, “Adam came up to her from behind and grabbed her with one hand on her stomach and one hand directly on her butt cheek. Heidi had six bodyguards with her. They took his hand off her and moved him away from the situation. …Heidi started bringing security to the set because she felt Adam was getting a little creepy. He was very touchy-feely and she insisted he wouldn’t stop asking her to strip down to a bikini for scenes. Adam wasn’t on set much for six seasons until Heidi got her new boobs. And now he shows up everywhere.”

MTV says they have conducted an investigation over the incident and that “the allegations made against Adam DiVello are completely false and without merit.” Keep reading »

Kirstie Alley’s 17-Year-Old Son Is Engaged … And She’s Happy About It?

While there’s certainly no “right” age to get married, I am going to go out on a limb and say that there is one wrong one—when you are 17. True Stevenson, Kirstie Alley‘s son, is not out of high school yet and he is engaged to his girlfriend. Even stranger, Kirstie is excited about this. “I feel good because they’re really in love,” she told Ellen DeGeneres yesterday. “True’s very … he’s got a level head. He’s a good guy. He’s very monogamous, and he’s very sweet with her.”

Yes, True seems pretty awesome on A&E’s “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life.” He regularly sports an AC/DC shirt and busts out great lines like, “They don’t rag on Rosie O’Donnell like they do on you and she’s way more of a b***h.” But he is hardly ready to walk down the aisle. Keep reading »

Quotable: Madonna Not So Gleeful About The “Glee” Madonna Episode

Madonna doesn’t have a TV and has no idea what ‘Glee’ is. The show did ask her if she wanted to make an appearance in the much-hyped Madonna episode. She said ‘no thanks’ and, to be honest, she would rather they sing an Elton John song than butcher one of hers.”

—An anonymous “friend” of Madonna‘s, who says she is none-too-excited about next week’s Madge-themed episode of “Glee.” Supposedly, she’ll make a cool $100K in royalties from the episode, though. So, you know, Rocco’s allowance for the month. [PopEater] Keep reading »

On “Intervention,” A Young Woman Snorts Drugs With A Tampon Tube

I used to watch A&E’s addiction series, “Intervention,” religiously. After a while, though, I couldn’t take it anymore. I appreciate the struggles of addiction, but the stories are so often so heartbreaking. Watching people in the throes of intense addiction is agonizing. Every once in a while, though, I tune in again. This Monday, I watched an episode featuring Ashley, whose drug-addicted mother handed her over to her aunt and uncle when she was a child. She became addicted to black tar heroin and Xanax after her grandfather died. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.

Jane Lynch Vogues As “Glee”‘s Sue Sylvester


I must admit, I only watched my first episode of “Glee” last night and was totally amused. But after catching this preview clip from next week’s Madonna-themed episode, I might have to become a loyal viewer. Jane Lynch, who has wowed me in all the Christopher Guest movies and plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on “Glee,” does “Vogue,” dare I say it, almost as entertainingly as Madge herself.
