And The Prize Goes To … The Most Rewarding Trivia Experience

Last we asked you to tell us your most rewarding trivia experience in exchange for a Smithsonian Channel swag bag. And boy, do a lot of you spend your time drinking and answering trivia. But, Bitsy Ravenclaw won the prize for this story because even we had to consult the dictionary after reading the story …

“A bunch of friends and I were playing Cranium one night just for the hell of it and one of our trivia questions was ‘What is the difference between inflammable and flammable?’ When the rest of the team geared up to say that they meant different things, my friend Craig and I shrieked ‘Wait!’ and without looking at each other we quoted Dr. Nick: ‘Inflammable means flammable? What a crazy country!’  It took another minute or so to convince everyone that despite the quote’s Simpsons origin, we were indeed correct. It was, we won, Simpsons humor FTW!”

Frisky Rant: “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Reunion Was Annoying

I’m a die-hard “Housewives” fan and haven’t missed a season since the O.C. women came on the scene five years ago. And even though I’ve never met any of the ladies (and don’t really want to), I feel that I know a great deal about their lives. That’s why I was so annoyed by some of the viewer questions and comments and the behavior of some of cast members. I’ve never been one to send an email to Bravo, so I’m just going to rant here.

MTV Wants The “Jersey Shore” Cast Sober

MTV is continuing its efforts to rein in the cast of “Jersey Shore.” Last month, it was rumored that MTV was limiting the Seaside Heightsers to two appearances a week. Now, they’ve apparently whittled that number to one. And … they’ve asked the cast not to drink at said appearances, which is kind of like asking a fish not to get wet in the water. But, apparently, it’s working. In Boston over the weekend, J-Woww stayed sober at a party, saying, “MTV doesn’t want [the cast] to drink.” But she’s not playing by all the rules, of course. “She is booking some stuff ‘under the radar’ and has seven appearances next week,” said a source. “North Carolina, Florida, Buffalo and Cancun were a few of the places she mentioned.”

Wait, I still can’t get over the no alcohol part. MTV did see the show, right? Without booze, it would be boring as all get out. Let’s just say that “gym, tan, laundry” minus the partying is far less interesting. Keep reading »

“American Idol” Contestant Michael Lynche Made Kara DioGuardi Cry

Kara DioGuardi wasn’t the only one crying after Michael Lynche’s phenomenal rendition of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” last night on “American Idol.” I hate to admit it, but I had to bust out the Kleenex, too. The other men can learn a thing or two from this dude. Holy crap. “Idol” just got exciting. Keep reading »

Boob Tube News: New Shows For Gabourey Sidibe And Keri Russell

After a glorious evening of television (a great episode of “Lost“! The lesbian kiss on “90210″!), I was pleased to read today’s entertainment news and see that … there’s lots more exciting stuff headed to the small screen soon. After the jump, the “Jersey Shore” kids head to South Beach, Keri Russell gets a new show, and our girl Gabourey Sidibe signs on for an edgy cable series. Keep reading »

The Barbie-fication Of “Mad Men”

For those of us who have dreamed of sleeping with Donald Draper, we may soon have our chance — courtesy of Mattel, that is. The toy company has announced that it will be manufacturing Barbie versions of several “Mad Men” characters, including handsome Mr. Draper; his wife, Betty; his partner-in-crime, Roger Sterling; and everyone’s favorite office siren, Joan Holloway. Mattel will be making 7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll to be sold in specialty stores and on AMCtv.com and BarbieCollector.com in July, when the show begins its fourth season on AMC.

Chateau Marmont: The TV Show?

Whenever stars are in the mood for mischief, they head to the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, to the Mercer in New York, or to the Standard in Miami. These hotels are all owned by one man—Andre Balazs. And interestingly, he is currently developing a fictional TV show about the goings-on at a hotel where the rich and famous regularly lay their heads. Alek Keshishian, the man behind Madonna‘s “Truth or Dare,” is producing the series, so we know it will be scandal-tastic. But can we be sure the plot lines from the show happened in real life? “Andre is always discreet, so we would never know if any of the story lines are based on real events,” a source told the NY Post. “But it will be fun watching the show and trying to guess.”

After the jump, some Chateau Marmont/Mercer/Standard rumors that we hope will make it onto the small screen. Keep reading »

A Murderer Charms A Woman On “The Dating Game”

Apparently, Ryan Jenkins wasn’t the first alleged killer to finagle his way onto a dating show. In 1978, Rodney Alcala appeared on “The Dating Game.” A good looking dude with long, curly hair, he was Bachelor #1. Host Jim Lange introduced him as, “a successful photographer who got his start when his father found him in the dark room at the age of 13, fully developed. Between takes you might find him skydiving or motor-cycling.” Contestant Cheryl Bradshaw liked that. “What’s your best time?” she asked him. Alcala answered back, “The best time is at night.” Alcala was charming, and Cheryl picked him out of the three guys. Later, though, she refused to go out on an actual date with him.

Good call, Cheryl. At the time of his appearance on the show, Alcala had been convicted of raping an 8-year-old girl 10 years earlier. And a few months after the show, he graduated to killing. He abducted and murdered a 12-year-old girl, and killed four more women in total. He was only found guilty of these crimes last month. He’s currently representing himself to try to avoid the death penalty. Keep reading »
