This past weekend, as I was conducting an experiment to find out how many hours I could spend on my couch before developing sofa sores, I finally decided to watch a show called “The Wire.” Perhaps you’ve heard of it. The critically acclaimed show aired on HBO for five seasons and ended its run in early 2008. Better late than never! Ten episodes into season one, it is my new obsession and I want, nay, need, the full series on DVD so there is absolutely no lull as I make my way through the rest of the episodes. Omar, Bubbles, and Stringer Bell might miss me.
You knew we were obsessed with our food rakes and our chicky chicky parm parm after “Parks and Recreation”‘s Tom Haverford (played by Aziz Ansari) came up with a list of special Tom-centric food terms. And now we’ve got a whole bunch of new Tom Haverfordisms to memorize and incorporate into our food vocabularies. Gum? Chew Chew Trains. Light beer? Funky Soda. Dumplings? Lil’ Surprises, of course. Click to see several other Haverfoods after the jump! (And even more at the link.) [TomHaverfoods.com] Keep reading »
Can a person ever really change? Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s “Love Triangle,” is not so sure. I think for the most part, she’s right — that people change temporarily, but eventually return to their old ways. Changing or stopping that’s become a habit — whether it’s lying or cheating or smoking — requires an unwavering determination. How many of us have that kind of undeterred focus about the good things in our lives, let alone the bad things we’re trying to get rid of. That’s why you can’t love someone for who you think they can be, you have to love them for the way they are, because even though they may try and change, the chances of lasting success are slim. (Be sure to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network.) Keep reading »
Heather Morris, aka Brittany S. Pierce, has quickly become our favorite Gleek thanks to her awesome one-liners and killer dance moves. So when I saw that Esquire had posted a video called “How To Dance With Heather Morris,” I got kind of excited. I was picturing “Darrin’s Dance Groove” from back in the ’90s, thinking I’d get some of Heather’s patented “Single Ladies” dance steps broken down move-by-move. Instead, I got the above video of Heather shaking her groove thang in a skimpy leotard and teased-to-there hair. Hot, sure? But helpful, not so much. I think I’ll skip the humping the floor move for now. Keep reading »
“Brooke’s an open book. She’s not afraid to show who she is. She’s not afraid to tell the truth. And as a producer of the show, I love that for TV. I love someone who’s not afraid to show everything. We’ve been friends for years … Brooke doesn’t mind that [Charlie and I are] friends. She knows that I met him before I met her.”
—Paris Hilton talks about Brooke Mueller, who will be for her new show “The World According to Paris” what Nicole Richie was for “The Simple Life.” Brooke is, of course, Charlie Sheen‘s ex who he allegedly pulled a knife on during a Christmas day fight in 2009 and who more recently accompanied him and his goddesses on that trip to the Bahamas. We’re guessing Charlie’s recent meltdown will do for Paris’ new series what her sex tape did for her maiden voyage into reality TV. [People] Keep reading »
