So, mark your calendars, people! [After Ellen] Keep reading »

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.

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of April 5th 2010

Oh, television, you are a good companion. Thank you for always providing a good time and never talking back.

“Sunset Daze” Proves Old People Do Still Get It On

As evidenced by the amazingness that was “Jersey Shore,” when you take a group of semi-attractive, outgoing people, put them in a sun-drenched environment and add in loads of alcohol, crazy things happen—mainly lots of hook-ups, oodles of fights, and a seriously questionable hot tub. Apparently, the same is true whether we’re talking about a group of 20-something guidos or a gang of senior citizens. WeTV’s new show, “Sunset Daze,” follows a group of 60-plusers living in Surprise, Arizona—one of the biggest retirement communities in the country. And the cast of the show looks every bit as scandal-tastic as J-Woww, Pauly D and crew. There’s Gail, a 70-something former actress from New York with big hair that would make Snooki jealous. There’s Ann, an Irish ex-nun who talks about her sexual exploits and goes skydiving. There’s Jack, who goes by the nickname “Mr. Romeo” (take that, The Situation) because he’s single and ready to mingle. And there’s Sandy, a member of the Blue Thong Society—whatever that is—who has a matching tattoo with her daughter and always orders a “double Pinot Grigio.” I know I’ll be watching the premiere on Apr. 28. How about you? [NY Daily News, WE TV] Keep reading »

“Mad Men” Jostles For An Emmy For January Jones

“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 »

Look! A Lesbian Reality TV Show!

Rejoice all, because lesbians are hitting reality TV.

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 »
