What We Know About The Oprah Winfrey Network So Far

You’ve got to have a stone-cold heart to not love Shania Twain. And maybe that’s why Oprah gave the country singer her OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) show called “Why Not?” A statement from the network said, “The show will follow Twain as she begins her climb back to the top, a personal journey filled with risk, revelations and unexpected adventures.” After her bestie snagged her husband, Twain fell in love with her bestie’s ex-husband Frédéric Thiébaud and has been traveling the world with him and her son, posting videos on her website of them sky-diving in Florida, riding camels in Egypt, and bike riding in London. I’m still reeling from her gorgeousness in the “That Don’t Impress Me Much” video, so I don’t know if I can handle my jealousy for a half-hour show. [People]

But really, I’m actually legitimately excited for Oprah’s network—sounds like there are some pretty awesome things going down. Here’s what we know so far. Keep reading »

Eva Longoria And The Rest Of The “Desperate Housewives” Brood Doubt Nicollette’s Lawsuit

And cue the Nicollette Sheridan backlash. Earlier this week, Nicollette filed a $20 million lawsuit against ABC, claiming that she was slapped by “Desperate Housewives” executive producer Marc Cherry in 2008 and that she was eventually written off the show over the incident. But according to Radar, ABC has come up with an eye witness who saw the whole incident unroll. The witness has signed an affidavit and has agreed to testify in court that there was no slap. Instead, this person says that Cherry patted Nicollette on the head while giving direction, which sounds condescending and annoying, but not abusive. “People on the show feel this is a nuisance suit,” a source tells them. “But if she makes the rounds of the talk shows, it could get ugly for Marc.” [Radar]

11 Questions We Want Oprah To Ask Rielle Hunter

And because we’re busy bodies super helpful, here are 10 questions that we’d like to see Oprah ask John Edwards‘ mistress. Keep reading »

Kelly Bensimon Does Some Old-Fashioned Shoe-To-Pavement Reporting

You know how Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” claims to be a writer? Well, until I peeped this video I assumed she attended swanky events, greeted her hosts, and afterward pulled a little blurb out of her behind for a niche magazine or website. Boy, was I wrong. I, like Kelly, know the pain of rejection when you’re hitting the pavement trying to report a story. But I often had to interview more nefarious subjects than those expressing their own street style. Catch the rest of the episode tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and don’t forget to hit up the Talk Bubble while you watch. Keep reading »

An Ode To “Kids Incorporated”

I found this clip of Stacy Ferguson (aka Fergie) when she was on “Kids Incorporated,” the show that was only like the most major inspiration of my childhood. I know you remember it, too. The plot was a little bit sketchy—a bunch of kids were in a rock band together and somehow were forced to face important issues each week like violence or drugs. All of this was interspersed with cheesy performances. But it didn’t matter that it made no sense—it was totally genius. Now I’m kind of laughing my ass off at this hee-haw version of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” but at the time that it came out, it provided me weeks of entertainment in front of the mirror with my hairbrush. It was even the first CD I ever purchased. When I was 12, my childhood dream came true when I actually got to audition for “Kids Incorporated.” Naturally I chose to sing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” I didn’t get the part … that vajazzling b**ch Jennifer Love Hewitt nabbed the role, but I eventually got over it and remained a loyal fan. After the jump a few more of my favorite clips from “Kids Incorporated.” Oh, the memories. [BuzzFeed]

The 10 Worst Bosses In Hollywood

Even though Edie was totally detestable on “Desperate Housewives,” something tells me that Nicollette Sheridan didn’t deserve the palm-to-the-face allegedly delivered by her boss, producer Marc Cherry. She’s currently suing the studio for damages and wrongful termination after Cherry killed off her character shortly after their kerfuffle. After Teri Hatcher also supposedly complained about Cherry’s abuse, he allegedly said, “I hope [she] gets hit by a car and dies.” Geez, he must be a great guy to work for.

Hollywood seems to be a breeding ground for tyranny and narcissism. Here are nine more of the scariest bosses in Tinsel Town. Keep reading »

Holler! “Jersey Shore” Season 2 Begins Filming

  • Get ready for some serious GTL, party people. The cast of “Jersey Shore” is in Miami for the filming of season two and their presence is hardly going unnoticed in South Beach. Yesterday, a full-scale mob gathered outside of the crew’s hotel. This season, the cast will have a security detail with them, which should mean—fewer fights? [NY Post]
  • Angelina Pivarnick peaced out of the first season by episode three, but she is back for season two. Just like the other castmates, she signed off Twitter earlier this week since MTV doesn’t allow the roommates to use cell phones or computers while filming. “This is my last tweet,” she wrote. “I just wanna say THANK U for all your love & support, ‘JS2′ is possible because of u. I’m gonna miss ….Lots of love.” Oh dear. The sound of her voice is annoying me already. [Zap 2 It]

Are Asian-Americans Headed To “Jersey Shore”?

A casting call was recently posted to Craigslist in L.A. asking for “interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘The Real World,’ ‘The Hills,’ etc.” An unidentified production company and network are looking to capitalize off the unexpected success of “Jersey Shore,” which debuted last year. This new show will no doubt have bigger-than-life personalities with weird nicknames and unique grooming habits. L.A.’s Koreatown might be the locale for this reality show since the production company is especially interested in individuals who know about or have experienced that neighborhood. This show could be the third “Jersey Shore”-like spinoff in the works — there’s “Brighton Beach,” which focuses on Russian-Americans, and “Sunset Daze,” starring nursing home residents.
