Quotable: Don’t Count Out Buzz Aldrin On “Dancing With The Stars”

“Walking on the moon was a piece of cake. This is a challenge! I’ve probably neglected my Lightfoot Louie on the dance floor, but I always have a lot to learn. I didn’t take up skiing until I was 50 … I come from strong Swedish stock and have been pretty good shape for a while. I walk pretty fast in the airport.”

—Buzz Aldrin on why he thinks his odds on “Dancing with the Stars” are better than we gave him [People] Keep reading »

The Premiere Of “The Real Housewives Of NYC” Was, In A Word, Grating

Midway through last night’s premiere of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” I noticed something funny. My heart was beating faster than normal and my breathing was shallow. I felt like I had just had eight cups of coffee back to back, and that the caffeine was surging its way through my body. In other words, I felt really stressed out. Why? Because the show was basically just a compilation of fights between very aggressive, annoying women over very stupid things. Things started with LuAnn De Lesseps grilling Ramona Singer because her husband had, months before, dared to mutter the word “countless” under his breath in her presence and the whole thing was SO UPSETTING. From there, Ramona totally flipped out, oscillating between chihuahua going for the throat bite and Buddhist monk in touch with the pulse of the universe. A few minutes later, Bethenny Frankel went to meet LuAnn for coffee—where LuAnn picked another stupid fight over a comment Bethenny had made last season about paying for LuAnn’s surfing lessons. And that was really just the tip of the fight iceberg. Keep reading »

Why I’m Voting For “American Idol” Contestant Crystal Bowersox

The ladyfolk really redeemed themselves last night on “American Idol.” I was impressed by Lilly Cole’s rendition of “A Change Is Gonna Come.” I was moved by Katelyn Epperly’s crooning version of Coldplay’s “The Scientist.” And I am still a fan of resident oddball, Siobahn Magnus, who devoured Aretha Franklin’s “Freedom.” But there is one contestant I am totally in awe of … Crystal Bowersox. As many of you know, the men and women switched nights this week because Crystal was severely ill in the hospital. They didn’t tell us why, but it sounded very serious. All she said was, “I’m a tough cookie.” Food poisoning? A heart condition? Cancer? Keep reading »

Did Jake Have A Girlfriend The Entire Time He Was On “The Bachelor”?

Jake Pavelka comes off as pretty much the most genuine guy on the planet. But one woman, who’s keeping her name under wraps, says that he’s a liar, liar, pants on fire. She claims that she and Jake were together when he left to film “The Bachelor.” She says that, while Jake claims his life’s passion is flying planes, he really wants to be an actor and was hoping to forward his career by doing the show. The day after Jake returned from filming, she says he called her and said he still loved her. He also said that the women on the show, including Vienna Girardi, meant nothing to him and that he was forced by the producers to propose. Radar has the first interview with this woman. “When you get down on one knee and propose marriage to someone, I take that very seriously,” she says. “The fact that he did that exclusively because he was instructed to do that, it disappoints me so much.” Keep reading »

Jessica Simpson Discusses John Mayer And That “Mom Jeans” Fiasco With Oprah


On yesterday’s episode of “Oprah,” Jessica Simpson responded for the first time to John Mayer‘s blabbermouth statement to Playboy — that she’s like crack in the sack. He, for the record, apologized to her in writing (email or text, we wonder) and she has not and doesn’t plan on accepting it. Good for her! After all the rumors about Jessica still pining away for Mayer, it’s nice to see her standing up for herself, but also seeming disinterested in his smarmy ass. Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore” Brings More Guido Flair To The Best Picture Nominees

Zach Galifianakis Is Going To Rule So Hard On “SNL”


Over the weekend I had a dream about Zach Galifianakis that gave me a tingle in my lower parts. Ever since, it’s been hard to think of anything else. I don’t know what it is about him — his beard, his cushion-y physique, his hilarious charm maybe? — but I am seriously crushing. I can just look at him and laugh. Which is why I am so super excited for Zach to host’s this weekend’s episode of “Saturday Night Live.” Maybe I’m building it up too much, but I think we’re in for one of the funniest episodes ever. Yeah, I said it. Keep reading »

The NYC “Housewives” Aren’t Interested In The Countess’s Classless Crap

From the looks of this video and one more after the jump, “The Real Housewives of New York City” aren’t taking any crap from Countess LuAnn de Lesseps. They’re finally comfortable in front of the cameras and aren’t seeking approval anymore, so they—Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer specifically—are finally telling the C(o)untess what she can do with all her criticisms and so-called etiquette. Check out another video after the jump. Keep reading »
