It’s time for a vacation, right? I’ve got an idea for ya. Why don’t you rent the house the “Jersey Shore” kids stayed in for their wild summer in Seaside Heights? Currently, the house will run you $3,500 a night, but come May—when beach season rolls around again—that will go way up, to $6,500 a night, reportedly three times what the house rented for in the pre-reality show days. But think about it: You and your honey could get close in the hot tub, which presumably has been scrubbed down since the summer. You could make a big Italian meal like “The Situation,” cuddle like Ronnie and Sammi, or see if you can master the duck phone a little better than Snooki. Sure, it’ll be freezing out, but you don’t actually have to leave the house. Heck, it’s not like the crew went to the beach more than once all summer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
The only thing I can say about this show, “Hotter Than My Daughter,” is that it’s wiggity, wiggity, wiggity wack. The concept is pretty simple: The show follows a mother/daughter pair where the mother likes to wear as little clothing as possible while the daughter is a bit more conservative. Take Sharon and her daughter Kobie in the preview above. Sharon may have three children and is about to be a grandma (Kobie is pregnant), but that doesn’t stop her from showing off the surgically-enhanced goodies. Keep reading »
Yesterday, I told you about some shows on the horizon that sound like serious stinkers. So it’s only fair that, today, I tell you about one that sounds truly awesome. Adorable Zooey Deschanel has signed on to do a new HBO show based on the book I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie, by Pamela Des Barres, whose conquests included Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Don Johnson, and loads of other famous ’60s musicians and actors. Zooey is executive producing the show, along with one of the producers behind “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” And supposedly the show will make use of archival ’60s footage, along with frequent orgy scenes. We’re expecting “Secret Diary of a Call Girl” gone rock ‘n’ roll. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Meet Alexis Neiers, the quintessential L.A. party kid: Her mom is a former Playboy Playmate, her dad was the director of photography on “Friends” and she lives on a pretty street in Westlake Village with her mom and a party girl pal, 20-year-old Tess Taylor, a Playboy Cyber Girl. Neiers and Taylor hit up L.A. night life hot spots so much that E! offered the girls a reality show, “Pretty Wild,” airing this March.
If things had gone differently for Neiers, “Pretty Wild” could have set her on a course to become the next Paris Hilton. But this is where the story gets weird: Neiers and friends are actually “the bling ring,” a group of 18- and 19-year-old burglars who Los Angeles police have linked to multiple burglaries of celebrities’ homes, including Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox, Audrina Patridge, and Orlando Bloom. Now, Vanity Fair reports, “Pretty Wild” is not so much about the L.A. party scene as it is following Neiers’ seems-to-be-destined path to jail. Keep reading »
While scanning entertainment news today, I couldn’t help but notice that—wow!—there are some truly heinous television shows in the works. The first offender, ABC Family has picked up a series called “Melissa & Joey” starring Melissa Joan Hart as a high-powered local politician and Joey Lawrence as her manny. Don’t get me wrong—I loved Melissa Joan Hart on “Clarissa Explains It All,” but did she have to go and do what sounds like a lame version of “Who’s the Boss” with a guy whose catchphrase was really only a sound?

Did you watch “Kell on Earth” last night? I did, and I’m officially hooked, even though the last thing I need is to add more television shows to my DVR queue. The PR power house is straight up, unafraid to show what the fashion industry is really like, and brutally honest. Working in fashion, I have an understanding of just how public relations work, but I honestly had no idea that Kelly lived and worked in the same building. It seems like a love/hate relationship — perfect because it provides additional time to spend with her daughter, but stressful since her work and home life collide. Last night, we had a quick peek into Kelly’s apartment, and it’s full of great finds — and surprisingly, lots of pink. First, I’m in love with Ava’s white bed against the white exposed brick, and the Baroque chairs in Kelly’s kitchen are a fancy touch to spruce up a simple NYC kitchen. All I know is, I’m saving this image of her living room in my inspiration folder for my next apartment, because those silver accents look amazing decorating any simple white wall. A couple more after the jump… [Casa Sugar] Keep reading »
4 8 15 16 23 42. These numbers will only make sense (err, be recognizable?) to “Lost” fans and I needed something to grab your attention since you’re probably losing it a little in anticipation of tonight’s season premiere. This is the sixth and final season of the polar bear and time travel-tastic series, which means that it’s (presumably?) time for the writers to start tying up all the loose ends. So what will be happening this season? There are a zillion theories out there. After the jump, we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting.
