“I don’t know, she’s kind of cool, she’s spunky and she’s got a lot personality. It’s also the first time we had an actual professional woman as a bachelorette. She’s not a party planner, she’s a dentist! That’s a good step for us. I think it’s a cool good lesson for young ladies out there to see an accomplished woman still struggling to put the personal side of her life together. That’s something a lot of women can relate to. She will be a different kind of bachelorette!”
– Mike Fleiss, creater of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” on why Ashley Hebert was picked to be the next “Bachelorette.” Sigh. So many issues with this quote. For starters, Ashley is a dental student. Good for her, but technically she’s not yet a professional. Secondly, since when party-planning not an actual profession? I think the many successful, hard-working party planners out there — both male and female — would have a problem with that statement. [EW] Keep reading »
Last night’s season finale of “The Bachelor” was an incredible letdown. I felt pretty sure a few weeks back, when Brad Womack and Emily Maynard landed on their own private island and he broke into hives while trying to tell her how much he cared about her, that Emily would be his choice in the end. As expected, Brad let Chantal go in a burst of tears and then got down on one knee and slipped a big, glittering diamond on Emily’s finger. “I’ve wanted to tell you I’ve loved you for so long,” he said, before telling her she’s “the one.” Big duh.
But then came the “After the Final Rose” ceremony. Keep reading »
It’s 10pm—does LeAnn Rimes know where her fiance is? Because chances are, he may be at the Playboy Club. Eddie Cibrian has landed the lead role in NBC’s new pilot, “Playboy,” which sounds kind of like the network’s answer to “Mad Men.” The show is set in 1963 at Chicago’s exclusive Playboy Club and Eddie will be playing Nick Dalton, a lawyer and regular known for being something of a mob fixer.

Jessica Koussevitzky from Season 2 of VH1′s “You’re Cut Off!” is opening up about her time on the show — and explaining how the rich girl has changed for the better!
“Well it was really difficult being away from home and friends and family, so when you get back from an experience like that, you appreciate everybody and everything around you so much more,” Koussevitzky tells TooFab, “You really just cherish the moments with your friends and family. You realize how important they are to your day to day life.” Read more… Keep reading »
Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob? No way. And that more sophisticated version of the theme song? No thanks.
Watch the rest of the show after the jump. Keep reading »
Last night, during the results show of “American Idol,”
season eight runner-up, Adam Lambert
, took the stage to perform an acoustic version of his song “Aftermath.” I didn’t watch much of Lambert’s season of “Idol” but I do recall thinking he had great stage presence and a solid set of pipes. I also appreciated how out and proud he was about his being gay, especially given “Idol”‘s reach and influence — seeing someone like Lambert excel can do much to inspire a young gay teen who maybe feels ostracized at home and in his community. Acceptance is a primary theme in “Aftermath,” but I have to say I was especially impressed by just how good
Lambert’s performance was. I know I am late to the party, but I’m officially a fan. Keep reading »
