“Project Runway” Returns For Season 7

“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 »

Big Shocker: “Jersey Shore” Cast Can’t Identify Joe Biden


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.

The Golden Globes Nominations Are In!

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 »

Hot Blog Alert: Third And Delaware Chronicles The Best Of “Roseanne” Fashion

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 »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of December 14th 2009

Television always gets a little glum this time of year—way too many shows have wrapped up until 2010. Lucky for us, there’s the season finales of “Nip/Tuck” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” not to mention a “Vampire Diaries” marathon and the hilarious “SNL” special, “A Very Gilly Christmas.” Holler.

“Dexter” Season Finale: Holy $%&@, WTF?!

After the jump, join me in expressing my total shock over the season four finale of “Dexter,” which aired last night on Showtime. There will be lots of spoilers, so if you haven’t watched the episode yet (what is wrong with you?!), don’t click any deeper. Seriously, this was one episode you do not want spoiled. Keep reading »

An Ode To Mermaid Girl: TLC Airs The Final Chapter


“Some people are the same and some people are different,” said Shiloh Pepin, aka Mermaid Girl, who was different, alright. She said a lot of profound things for a little girl with a flipper. I have been following Shiloh’s story for the last two years as a series of TLC documentaries captured her swimming ahead in spite of the many challenges she faced as one of three known people living with Mermaid Syndrome. I think the moment I fell in love with her was when she was being fitted for a custom wet suit and she turned to a woman in the shop and shouted jubilantly, “I’m a mermaid!” “Yes!” I thought. I’m a mermaid, too! Just without a flipper. I am awkward, unsure, and fumbling through life—we all are. But Shiloh was able to embrace … no, own, her challenges in a way that I am envious of. For that, the little mermaid will always in inspire me. Keep reading »

NeNe And Kim To Be Ixnayed From “The Real Housewives”?

Some very disturbing reality TV news reached my ears this weekend, and for the first time in a month, it has nothing to do with “Jersey Shore.” According to the New York Daily News and People, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak are very close to getting pink-slipped from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Supposedly, the two are making through-the-roof payment demands to participate in season three of the show, not to mention that their constant feuding has gotten on producers’ nerves. “Bravo has been taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta women about possibly joining the show,” says a source from the show. “They’re trying their best to keep the process under wraps, but they’re gearing up to make a major move in the third season.” One of the woman who was on the producers’ original wish list—Tameka Foster, the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Usher.

Jake Gyllenhaal Learns How To Separate, Looks Hot At The Same Time


OK, um, hello? Is it just me, or is this hawt? I mean, I had no idea that an octopus puppet on Jake Gyllenhaal‘s head could be so titillating. Something about the spread legs, and the on-top-of-Jake’s-head position, and the obsessing over the word “separate.” I feel like it’s all some kind of primal dialogue to which I am only partially privy. Where was Jake when I was watching “Sesame Street”? Probably not born yet. Sigh. Keep reading »
