After The Shore: Our Predictions For The Cast Of “Jersey Shore”

Tonight is the final episode of “Jersey Shore.” Time to pack up the hair gel and put away the club gear—the summer of fun is over. Teardrop. Who will we look to for comic relief in the cold, winter months ahead? We’ve heard that our favorite pint-sized pickle lover may soon have her own reality show in the works as part of her plan to take over the Snookiverse. Snooki says nothing is set in stone yet, but she’s received offers from VH1 and some other networks. I hope this doesn’t mean she’s leaving the cast. It truly wouldn’t be the same without her perky little pouf. But alas, this is what happens with reality stars: They use TV to launch (albeit usually pathetic) careers of some sort. After the jump, our predictions for the fates of the other cast members. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

Jennifer Lyon Of “Survivor” Dies At 37

On Tuesday, “Survivor” contestant Jennifer Lyon, 37, died of breast cancer. She first noticed the lump in 2004 but didn’t do anything about it because she figured it was scar tissue from her breast implant surgery. In 2005, a few months after she placed fourth on the show, Lyon was diagnosed with stage-three cancer. She had a radical mastectomy, went on chemo and was prescribed drugs. Sadly, all that wasn’t enough. Many of Jennifer’s former competitors are calling her brave and inspirational. I personally think it’s pretty cool that even after she got really sick, she worked hard to raise money for breast cancer research so that others could have a better chance than she did.

Girl Talk: How “Intervention” Helped Me To Forgive

I was really young and naïve when I met Christian* at a nightclub. By “young,” I mean 18 and by “naïve,” I mean an inexperienced dater who thought men would only like me for my intelligence.

“Isn’t she beautiful?” Christian asked some other club goers in line. I looked behind me to see where the beautiful girl was. I certainly didn’t think it was me. But he pointed at me again. He was standing in the club’s entryway wearing big, Buddy Holly glasses, black leather pants, and reeking of “teen icon.” Then he smiled – a wide, devilish grin. With one hand, he offered me a lollipop; with the other he held a whiskey on the rocks. In fact, in the four years (on and off) that we were involved, Christian usually had a whiskey on the rocks. It was like his signature accessory. Keep reading »

“The Bachelor” Is About To Get Horribly Juicy!

If you thought we’d already seen “the most shocking rose ceremony ever!” on this season of “The Bachelor,” think again. Rozlyn Papa has already gotten the boot for an alleged affair with a producer, and bunny-boiling Michelle left before the rose ceremony because she and Bachelor Jake Pavelka couldn’t get past her total crazytown-ness in order to build a connection — but things are going to get even more dramatic as the season goes on. The Bachelor told Us Weekly that the best is yet to come. “Horrible. Awful. On a scale of one to 10, it nears a 10,” Pavelka told the mag, saying it created “devastation” for him. “It is juicy now. It is going to get a lot juicier.”

Jake’s characterization of this event confuses me. What could be both horrible and juicy? A contestant getting cancer is horrible; a contestant finding out she’s pregnant is juicy. After the jump, I hypothesize about what the hell might happen to make the world’s most boring “Bachelor” also the most, gulp, entertaining … (Warning: This post will contain possible spoilers.)

Erika From “The Real World D.C.” Admits She Lied About Cancer

One “Real World: D.C.” cast member might have a bit of trouble with the show’s “start getting real” part. The show’s resident “rocker chick,” Erika Wasilewski, revealed that she once lied about having cancer. When Time Out Chicago told Erika about nasty rumors they read online, she admitted that she faked cancer to get sympathy after her high school boyfriend broke up with her:

“Um, there is some truth to what you’re hearing. Yes, it happened. Yes, I regret it. If I could take it back, I would. I was going through some severe emotional problems at the time. I was lashing out and craving attention wherever I could. It was really destructive. I didn’t even realize I had a problem until my freshman year of college. At that point, I received help and I did take antidepressants. I weaned myself off with the guidance of my doctor, and I’ve basically done a complete turnaround.”

Lying about cancer is pretty low, but we’re happy the spunky Illinois native realized she had serious problems and got treatment. But will the terrible lies in Erika’s former life be revealed to her new roommates? We can only hope. [Time Out Chicago] Keep reading »

“True Blood” Spoiler: Things Are Gonna Get Gayer In Bon Temps

For a kind of backwoods Southern town, Bon Temps is pretty flaming. Things are supposedly going to get even hotter in the third season. We already told you that “True Blood” producers cast Theo Alexander as a gay vampire who’s known as the “King Of Mississippi.” There were also rumors that our favorite gay line cook, Lafayette, would be getting his own love interest. Then the drop-dead drool-worthy Alexander Skarsgard hinted that his character, Eric, would be gettin’ it on with women AND men in the next season, but he’s not the only main character steaming things up with another dude.

Michael Scott And David Brent Set For An “Office” Showdown

As a fan of both the American and British versions of “The Office,” I have on occasion wondered who would win in an arm-wrestling match—David Brent or Michael Scott. It looks like I might finally get my answer. Rumor has it that Ricky Gervais will be doing a guest spot on “The Office,” stateside, playing his infamous character. Writers, feel free to take that arm-wrestling idea. Or you could make it a dance-off. Either way, I’m curious to see which of these dudes’ characters is the more egotastically clueless in a side-by-side comparison. [The Independent] Keep reading »
