The current cast of “Glee” including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be replaced in 2012.
The musical TV hit, set in a high school, has taken the world by storm since it first aired in 2009, and has made stars of castmembers including Michele, Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.
But to maintain the series’ realism, creator Ryan Murphy has decided the current class should graduate in 2012 and leave the show for good. Read more… Keep reading »
Smell-o-vision sounds like something that could only happen in the year 2030, but it could actually be a reality … pretty soon. Samsung has commissioned researched at UCSD to make a device that attaches to your television and produces scents. The device has a 100×100 matrix of wires that burn in different patterns to create specific smells. They recently tested the technology on perfumes and found it was pretty accurate. The question is: do you want to smell what’s onscreen? I mean, would smelling the burnt rubber really bring watching a car chase to another level? As Gizmodo points out, this would inevitably be used by advertisers to make you crave, oh, just about anything. Awesome or scary? [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
I have a new favorite contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” one who I think rivals Prince Poppycock in grandeur. His name is Steve Retchless and he is a “pole-fessional.” In other words, he’s a pole dancer. “You don’t usually think of males in pole dancing,” said Howie Mandel after his intro. Steven’s response? “That’s why I’m here.” And yes, he was pretty freaking awesome dancing to Katy Perry’s “E.T.” I even like the way this dude fell. While one judge x-ed him quickly when he dared do a split, I’m so glad Sharon Osbourne and Nick Cannon stood up for him. “Talent is talent. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing high heels,” said Nick.

Back in April, we told you that Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, and Danielle Staub would be teaming up for a new reality show. And now, we finally have the details of what this show will be—VH1′s “Famous Food.” Oh, but the series has even more fascinating characters—Ashley Dupre (i.e. Eliot Spitzer’s favorite call girl), Vincent Pastore (of “The Sopranos”) and two members of Three 6 Mafia, you know, since it’s hard out there for a pimp. Together these seven will be … opening a restaurant on the Sunset Strip with the help of the famed Dolce Group. One lucky winner will become an actual partner in the venture.
The first clip of the show has been released, and it focuses on Heidi (actually, so does the second). It leads me to ask many questions… Keep reading »
This just might be my favorite Entertainment Weekly cover ever. Since Sunday night brings the “True Blood” season four premiere, EW has issued three covers featuring Anna Paquin posing “American Gothic”-style alongside Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Maganeillo, and her real-life husband Stephen Moyer. My fave is this Alexander one, because both of them have such perfect expressions. My least favorite has to be the Joe version, which you can check out after the jump. In real life, Alcide is the character I lust after the most—just not in those overalls. But nevermind what I think, pick your favorite after the jump. Keep reading »
“I’m not Finn Hudson. I’m lucky on so many counts—I’m lucky to be alive. I had a serious [drug] problem. I did a stint [in rehab] but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing. I stole a significant amount of money from a family member and I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. [Fessing up was] the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years. I was done fighting myself. I finally said, ‘I’m gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I’m doing this.’”
—Cory Monteith of “Glee” tells Parade Magazine that he was an out-of-control teenager who did lots of drugs and skipped school often. How interesting that now, at age 29, he plays one of the most goody-two-shoes characters on television. Does this make anyone else want Finn to fall off the deep end next season?
