“There’s a virtual party going on right here, a celebration to last throughout the years. So bring your TV smarts and your laughter too. And Bravo’s gonna celebrate this party with you. C’mon now!” That’s enough Kool and the Gang, but what I’m alluding to is the new Bravo Talk Bubble, a site that hosts a virtual viewing party during some of the network’s popular shows, like “The Real Housewives of New York City” and “Top Chef.” You can log into Twitter and other social media outlets to vent your frustration at the Countess or tell Jill to get over her issues with Bethenny.
WIN THIS! One lucky winner will be able to get their Bravo fix even when they’re not in front of a TV or computer screen. We’re giving away a Kindle from Bravo. You’ll be able to read your favorite Bravo cast members’ books, like Jill Zarin’s Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love, while on the go. This way you’ll never miss a Bravo moment. But you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us what would be the first book you’d download and why by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 8. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner on Friday, April 9. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!

“Mad Men” takes care of their own. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Elisabeth Moss will be entered as a “best supporting actress” nominee for the Emmys so that January Jones can be nominated in the “best lead actress” category all by her lonesome. Sources tell THR that a “best lead actress” Emmy has eluded Jones twice before and since the Emmys allows candidates to submit for their own categories, the folks behind “Mad Men” want to give Jones her best chance. Bummer for Elisabeth Moss, though! She might be a frontrunner for the Emmys’ “best supporting actress” category, but still, this is how catfights get started.
But can someone tell us the really important information here: What about Christina Hendricks?! [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
Rejoice all, because lesbians are hitting reality TV. No, “The Real Housewives” franchise didn’t pick them up, but Showtime is doing a reality series called “The Real L Word” based on the network’s “The L Word,” which followed a group of hot gay women in West Hollywood. The big question: will the reality version be as good as the scripted version? Answer: it could be even better. After the jump, meet the cast. Keep reading »
Entertainment lawyer Phaedra Parks (pictured left), who we told you about in February, will indeed join the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for season three — and she’s pregnant. But a more famous “housewife” will get some camera time too. Model Cynthia Bailey, who has appeared on the cover and pages of Essence, has also been confirmed as a new face on the hit Bravo show. Cynthia is the ex-wife of actor Leon, so I’m hoping his fine ass will make an appearance on the show at least once. And supposedly, one of the original “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will make a mid-season exit. Scandal! [The Young, Black & Fabulous]

Posing for Playboy is the quintessential beauty stamp of approval for some women. But some bunnies still get nervous in front of a cute guy. Check out how Kelly Bensimon goes from calm and collected to flustered once she realizes she’s attracted to her interviewer. Their exchange and the way he asks her on a date makes me think of her as an actual human (as opposed to an evil robot). You can watch the full episode tomorrow on Bravo at 10 p.m. Keep reading »
Like any fangbanger worth her salt, I can think of one or two VILFs — i.e., vampires I’d like to f**k. There’s Eric … Bill … Heck, on the right night I’d even have a go at Pam — if only for access to her bitching wardrobe. Anyways, check out HBO’s latest poster to advertise the awesomeness that is “True Blood,” which returns June 13. Plus, there’s a season three promo teaser after the jump. Keep reading »
Last night I watched my very first full episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” For the most part, I was bored. Pamela Anderson was shockingly awesome — I knew the bitch could run in slow-mo, but who knew she could dance?!; I cringed
the minute Jake Pavelka took the stage with his poor man’s Tom Cruise grin; and I felt sort of sad that Buzz Aldrin wasn’t, well, any good. But the best moment of the night occurred during footage of Kate Gosselin’s rehearsals with her partner, Tony Dovolani. The two got in a tiff because Kate was being a bossy beyatch, treating her dance instructor as if he was one of her kids, and he wouldn’t stand for it, storming off until she shut her pie hole. It was basically awesome, especially as Kate made vague comments about another man leaving her. (Oh wah, Kate, you don’t want Jon’s Ed Hardy-branded ass anyway.) Kate and Tony made up in the end and Kate crowed about neither of them being quitters after dancing a mediocre jive. Whatever. If these two keep bickering, I’ll keep watching. [YouTube
