“The Office”‘s “Seasons Of Love” Tribute To Michael Scott


I haven’t been a loyal watcher of “The Office” in a few seasons, but that didn’t stop me from totally tearing up while watching this tribute to Michael Scott from last night’s episode. My high school choir (I was not a member) sang “Seasons of Love” from “Rent” at my high school graduation and, damn, does that tune tug at the heartstrings (even when the lyrics are ridiculously altered). Next week is Steve Carell’s last episode — will you be watching? Keep reading »

Please, No: “Real Housewives” Husband, Simon Van Kempen, Sings “I Am Real”


Is this really happening again? Is another “Real Housewives” star trying to turn their 15 minutes of reality TV fame into a music career? Actually, no. A “Real Housewives”‘ star’s husband is following in the footsteps of Countess LuAnn, Kim Zolciak, and Danielle Staub. Alex McCord‘s hubby, Simon Van Kempen — both from “The Real Housewives of NYC” — has released his first song, “I Am Real.” It is just as Eurotrash as you’d expect from the banana hammock-wearing Aussie. Simon told PopEater that his style is similar to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and while I appreciate the reference — love Jarvis — I politely disagree. (Though I do think it establishes him as more of a gay icon than Sonja.) But what do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »

No Drinking! “Jersey Shore” Cast Given Rules To Follow By Mayor Of Florence, Italy

How do you say “UGH!” in Italian? Because that’s what the entire country of Italy said when they learned MTV’s “Jersey Shore” would be filming its fourth season in the beautiful and historic city of Florence. The mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, has drawn up a list of rules that Ronnie, Snooki, and pals must obey when they begin filming there next month. Because we know that will keep them in line.

An “Extreme Couponing” Scandal


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.

You Could Have Donna And Kelly’s “Beverly Hills, 90210″ Beach Apartment

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 »

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Second Generation Of “Friday Night Lights”

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 »
