Lynne Curtin is my second favorite cast member on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” probably because she doesn’t take herself or anything seriously. Last season, I kept wondering what made her so loopy and lackadaisical. This season, the mystery was narrowed down a bit. When she appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” programming executive and host Andy Cohen asked her if rumors of her mushroom habit were true. Lynne said they weren’t. But on last night’s episode, she took pain medications after having a face lift and seemed her normal self. (You can see all the weird moments in the video above.) The other cast members blamed her crazy, airhead moments on the meds, yet she was enamored by the possibility of wild mushrooms growing in the Florida Everglades. That seemed strange to me, and I suspect she’s on some feel-good stuff regularly, even when she hasn’t had surgery. What are your thoughts on Lynne’s far-out demeanor? Keep reading »
The second season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” the drag queen competition show, is coming soon and because this promo shot is so genius, you can be sure we’ll be watching. It’s a perfect spoof of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue. Sashay, shante. Keep reading »
In case you missed it — what is wrong with you?! — here’s a quick clip of our favorite “Jersey Shore”

There’s only a few hours left for MTV to change its mind and show Snookie getting punched on tonight’s episode — not because that would be entertaining, but because they’ve already showed it in a clip, so showing it in context would be the right thing to do. But I’m not holding my breath. Check back to this post at 10pm EST as I, along with special guest John DeVore, liveblog the latest episode of “Jersey Shore.” Fingers crossed my jumbo jar of pepperoncini came in the mail today.

“Launch My Line” not satisfying your “Project Runway” jones? Good thing PR will make a speedy return on Jan. 14 on Lifetime. And this time around the designers will be back in NYC, where they should be, instead of L.A. The 16 designers will compete for $100,000 to launch their line and a spread in Marie Claire. I think this is the most diverse cast to date. There are competitors hailing from the Ivory Coast, Dominican Republic, the Philippines, China, and Mexico. And, of course, our favorite mentor Tim Gunn will be back, as well as Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and Nina Garcia. And in case you’re sick of “America’s Next Top Model” re-runs, “Models of the Runway” will air immediately following “Project Runway.” [People] Keep reading »
Hmph. Well, this is mean. Jay Leno trotted out “Jersey Shore
” cast members Mike “The Situation,” DJ Pauly D, and Beloved Snookie on last night’s show and subjected them to an intelligence test! Well, OK, it was for his quiz show “Jaywalking,” only standing still in the studio instead of out on the streets. As you might have expected, the two guidos and one guidette weren’t exactly up on their knowledge of American history and presidential politics. So what was the point? To make fun of them? They shoulda turned the tables on Jay and asked him some questions. Like how to make sausage and peppers. And how many cans of hairspray it takes to make a pouf stand upright in a strong wind. Clip above! Keep reading »

The 2010 Golden Globe nominations were read early this morning from Hollywood by a supah-fine John Krasinski, Diane Kruger, and Justin Timberlake. Some of the nominees include Gabourey Sidibe for “Precious,” Meryl Streep for her roles in “It’s Complicated” and “Julie and Julia,” Joseph Gordon Levitt for “(500) Days of Summer,” January Jones and Jon Hamm for “Mad Men,” Courteney Cox for “Cougar Town,” (anyone else sorta shocked by this?) Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” and Drew Barrymore for the HBO miniseries “Grey Gardens.” The movie “Up in the Air” got more nominations that any other movie; “Glee” was the most nominated TV show.
When Emily Blunt was nominated for her role in “The Young Victoria,” Justin Timberlake chuckled, looked into the audience, presumably at Krasinski, who is dating Blunt, and said, “Oo-oh, somebody’s gonna have a good night tonight!” Oh, that Timberlake — always the entertainer. See the full list of nominees here. The 2010 Golden Globes will air Sunday, Jan. 17, 2010 on NBC. Keep reading »
Who woulda thunk “Roseanne,” that off-beat sitcom about a working class family fronted by the crass Roseanne and eternally plumber-cracked John Goodman, could provide such awesome fashion fodder? A rad new blog called Third And Delaware (the cross streets for the Conner family home) chronicles all the awesomely ’80s and ’90s sartorial moments from one of my favorite TV shows ever. Dan’s plaid! DJ’s colorful hoodies! Becky’s scrunchies and undercut bob! Roseanne’s OK Corral shirt and funky hair accessories! Nancy’s slut gear! Crystal’s suburban mom chic! And, of course, Darlene oh-so-on-trend grunge stylings. Screen shots are accompanied by hilarious commentary, like:
Just a hot second ago Becky was sporting the messy boy hair, and now all of a sudden she’s got an unbelievably amazing UNDERCUT? … It seems Becky spent her summer holiday growing out her choppy locks only to shave half of them off again. With this hairstyle she gets the look of a bowl cut without the hassle of having to brush all of that hair! Her neck is free to breathe, and she can pop her collar without fear of disturbing her incredible coif.
Let’s hope this site doesn’t spawn an undercut comeback. [Third And Delaware] Keep reading »
