TLC’s new hit show isn’t about a family with a whole lot of kids
. Nope, it’s about: coupon clippers. But not just any coupon clippers—obsessive couponers who save hundreds of dollars in a single trip to the grocery store … but then live their lives among their collected non-perishables. Which makes them just a step above hoarders in that the insane amount of clutter they’re living in is new crap rather than old, decaying crap. Ahhh, but there is already a scandal with this new show. J’aime Kirlew, who was shown on the series buying 70 newspapers in order to procure 70 copies of a coupon that made mustard 39 cents a jar in addition to other over-the-top penny pinching behavior, has been accused of coupon fraud.

From freshman year on, Donna Martin and Kelly Taylor of “Beverly Hills, 90210” called their Venice Beach apartment, with its white decks and blue awnings, home. But apparently, the abode whose exterior we saw so often wasn’t actually an apartment building—it’s a single family house. Oh, and it also isn’t in Venice Beach—it’s actually located in Hermosa Beach. Did I mention that the house is for sale and could be yours for $9 million? Come on—this is the place where Kelly brought Tara to stay after they checked out of rehab. Not to mention where Donna finally lost her virginity to David. I mean, this place deserves historical landmark status. Any takers? [People] Keep reading »
The first season of “Friday Night Lights” was sort of like a Rorschach test for its straight, female viewers: do you want a Jason Street, a Tim Riggins, or Matt Saracen type? Knowing whether you gravitate toward the popular guy, the bad boy, or the underdog tells you a lot about yourself. But over the years, the original “FNL” characters moved on. (Most recently: Riggins to jail.) And with the fifth and final season of our favorite show beginning tonight on NBC, we thought it was time to pose the question with the show’s new class of football players. So: Vince Howard, Luke Cafferty, and Hastings Ruckle—who would we shun, shag, and marry? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Tracy Morgan took a seat on the estrogen-soaked couch of “The View” yesterday. He and Sherri Shepherd have a special relationship since she plays his wife on “30 Rock.” While watching a clip of the sitcom where Tracy got to show off his revenge body, Sherri shared a little secret. “Every time he came out, he would stuff something in his pants,” she said. Tracy did not approve. “That wasn’t stuffed!” Tracy insisted. “No. No. That’s me. You know I’m magically delicious.” And it only got funnier from there. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
This week, “The Oprah Show” featured Pat Benatar and Avril Lavigne doing a duet of “Love Is A Battlefield,” a song that remains relevant after all these years. Pat seems to be winning the “war” seeing as she’s still with her husband of 30 years. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about Avril. [Oprah] Keep reading »
If you lived anywhere near my apartment building, you would have heard a dramatic scream of “Noooooooo!” circa 9 a.m. this morning. Why? Because I read that Leah Messer and Corey Simms of “Teen Mom 2“—aka the couple I dubbed the most inspiring on television—have split after just six months of marriage. Apparently, it was Leah who did the leaving, moving out of their family home after a series of fights over money. Yesterday, she was spotted at her local courthouse and a clerk confirmed that, while she hadn’t filed anything, she had picked up divorce or custody papers.
This news makes me very, very sad. Keep reading »
