5 Reasons We’re Excited for “First Love, Second Chance”

A first love is a pretty freaking powerful thing. It serves as the opening chapter to the epic novel that is your love life. While most first loves aren’t meant to be forever, they usually leave behind some lingering and pesky “what ifs?” What if I should’ve stuck it out? What if that was the best sex I’ll ever have? What if he became rich and successful? What if he was the one? A new TV Land show, “First Love, Second Chance,” will be answering those questions for a few former couples. Each episode of the show, which will premiere March 10, reunites a single person with their also conveniently single first love, to see if they want to try again. The couple spends two weeks living together—one week at her place and one at his—after which they must tell the other if they are worth a second chance. It’s kind of like “Grease,” except with Dannys and Sandys who can’t sing. To us this sounds like a recipe for drama—in a good way. Here are the five reasons we’ll be watching “First Love, Second Chance.” Keep reading »

Do The Women On “American Idol” Really Have A Chance This Season?

I was so pumped to see the top 12 ladies perform last night on “American Idol,” especially since every other sentence out of the judges’ mouths during Hollywood week was, “The girls are the best ever this year!” After the teasers I saw, I was thinking they were right, that I’d have to hitch a plane to L.A. and stalk the Kodak Theatre. But last night was stank city! Even the girls that I was fantasizing about being great sucked. And the judges seemed like they were going easy on them in a first grade teacher to the slow student kind of way. But I don’t want to watch “American Idol: No Singer Left Behind.” Cut those awful bitches! Was it just opening night jitters, or do the girls this season really blow (in a bad way, not in a Randy Jackson slang kind of way)? I’m hoping for something better … like much better from the guys or else I may be watching this season just for Ellen’s jokes. After the jump, some of the girls I thought I’d be excited about and my review of their performance last night. Keep reading »

Carrie Underwood Gets Pooped On When Filming “How I Met Your Mother”

 

So when I heard that Carrie Underwood would be the next celebrity to guest star on “How I Met Your Mother,” I had no illusions that she’d be an amazing actress. But I wasn’t quite prepared for how, uh, off her comedic timing is in this sample clip. In the episode, which airs this month, she plays a pharmaceutical sales rep—in a flight attendant’s uniform?—who Ted totally falls for. Only she, of course, has a boyfriend. Granted, the line, “I’ve always been this hot — what’re you gonna do?” is a hard one to deliver without sounding like a dolt, but we still think Rachel Bilson would’ve rocked it. We just hope Carrie doesn’t turn out to be Rachel’s roommate—in other words, the mother. All that said, turns out Carrie was the perfect person to handle that adorable teacup piglet. “I got to hang out with the whole cast, dress up like a flight attendant, play a cavewoman and had a baby pig poop on me … that’s right … jealous?” she wrote on her blog of her experience on set. “I’m just glad I grew up on a farm, because I think I was the only one who knew how to hold and wasn’t afraid of a little piglet!” [People] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin To Guest Star On “The Secret Life Of The American Teenager”

In the most appropriate collaboration since “Tool Academy” with Dave & Busters, Bristol Palin has signed on to guest star on ABC Family’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” I haven’t figured out what the secret is yet, but I’m guessing it is about to have something to do with retroactive abstinence! Bristol will be playing herself in an upcoming episode, as a teen mom friend of Amy’s. I guess they will be bonding about how awesome not having sex is and how it’s super effective for preventing pregnancy. Bristol has said about her new gig, “I am thrilled to be on this show and to be part of a program that educates teens and young adults about the consequences of teen pregnancy. Regardless of what I did personally, I just think that abstinence is the only … 100 percent foolproof way to prevent pregnancy. It’s a hard choice, but it’s the safest choice and it’s the best choice.” Foolproof is such a funny word. It will be interesting to see whether a real-life teen mom can lend insight to our protagonist. And maybe baby Tripp will also make his acting debut? [ABC News] Keep reading »

Have You Seen Boner Stabone?

If you are a good child of the ’80s, you’ll remember Boner Stabone as the bad news next-door neighbor of the Seavers on “Growing Pains.” (Seriously, how did they get away with calling him that?) On a somber note, Andrew Koenig, the actor who played Boner, disappeared in Vancouver, Canada, on Valentine’s Day. His parents and other celebrities are taking to Twitter to find him. They are concerned that Andrew’s life may be in danger due to his severe depression. He was last seen at burlesque star Jenny Magenta’s house on V-Day. He was supposed to return to his home in Hollywood on February 16, but his cell phone has been turned off and no one knows his whereabouts. He looks a little bit different now than he did in the ’80s, but if you’ve seen Boner, please Tweet. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Betty White May Be Hosting “SNL” After All — Just Not On Her Own

Ask — nay, demand — and Lorne Michaels will listen, sort of. For the last month or so, fans of Betty White have been clamoring for the “Golden Girl” to host “Saturday Night Live,” and according to Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorne Michaels is game. However, he’s apparently not sure that White, who is 88 years old, will be able to carry the show on her own, so he’s supposedly assembling a roster of funny ladies to host together. Molly Shannon is on board, and Michaels is going after “SNL” alum like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as well. The idea of all these women on “Saturday Night Live” totally excites me, but I totally think White could pull off the hosting gig on her own. I mean, would Michaels not allow Clint Eastwood — who is turning 80 this year — to host on his own? Betty White, while up there in years, is a professional, and a hilarious one at that — I say she should get the coveted hosting gig all for herself, unless she feels like sharing.
