Jon Gosselin and Nadya Suleman: Will They Or Won’t They Date On TV?

You know what’s far, far scarier than any horror movie you could rent this Halloween? The possibility that Jon Gosselin and Nadya Suleman might be doing a reality television special together where they date. In Touch Weekly reported this week that masochistic producer Bobby Goldstein, who was also behind “Cheaters” and “The Jerry Springer Show,” is working on said special, called “Jon – Kate = Jon + Octomom.” It features Jon “as he contemplates what hooking up with Octomom could really be like … He’s totally creeped out by the idea that if they got married, they’d have 22 kids.” As soon as the story about the show appeared, Jon and Nadya’s reps were quick to send out denials. But several insiders have now told NY Daily News that the show is actually happening. “Jon’s camp got scared because they didn’t expect the story to come out so quickly. They figured they would issue a denial now,” explained one mysterious insider. “Both Jon and Nadya are each looking to bring in at least $1 million for doing the show. Jon definitely wants to do the show.” Goldstein adds that he is currently shopping the show around to networks, to potentially air as a two-hour special on Super Bowl Sunday. Why that day—because together this pair has enough kids to make a football team? Also, will we even remember these two that many months from now? Here’s hoping the answer is a big fat “no!” [NY Daily News]

Kelly Kapoor And Erin Hannon Are Gonna Give Rihanna, Beyonce, And Lady Gaga A Run For Their Money

There’s a hot new girl group out of Scranton, PA, that’s inspired by “Rihanna, Katy Perry, J.Hud, and all the Kardashians,” and they might surpass all these influences if the rest of their music is anything like this first single. “The Office” characters Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) and Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper) are Subtle Sexuality, and the video for their debut song, “Male Prima Donna,” is out — and it’s awesome. Listen only if you want lines like “If you ever leave me again/I’ll down a bottle of baby aspirin” and “You’re cute but you think you’re blazin’ hot/You’re short but you think you’re not” stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The only thing hotter than this song is Kelly and Erin dancing around Dunder Mifflin’s warehouse in pirate outfits. [Subtle Sexuality] Keep reading »

Why Was “Top Chef” So Pervy Last Night?


Last night’s episode of “Top Chef” featured extra-special guest judge Natalie Portman, who forced the chefs to cook vegetarian food in a steakhouse (so cruel!). But they must have done something right, because when the judges sat down to eat, Natalie and Padma got a little frisky. Clip above! Keep reading »

Violence Against Women On TV Is Increasing

Do you scratch your head when people shriek about sex being too graphic on TV when someone is getting punched or shot before every commercial break? Yeah, me too. A new study by the Parents Television Council (granted, a conservative organization) should have everyone concerned. It counted over 400 acts of violence against women and female teenagers on prime-time ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox shows from February until May of this year. When the group conducted the same study five years ago, they counted less than 200 acts of violence against women. The PTC clocked an increase of over 120 percent for beatings, murder, threats and rape of adult women, as well as an over 400 percent increase against teenage girls. I don’t even know what to say about these stats. Keep reading »

How “Glee” Made Me Embrace My Inner Musical Theatre Geek

I must admit I’ve spent many years trying to keep my little secret, but I am finally ready to sing it out. I was a musical theatre (spelled “re” not “er,” you uncivilized fools) geek. From ages six to 18, I performed in nearly every musical known to man. I took voice lessons, I owned tap shoes, and I wore so much pancake base and blush that it made me break out regularly. When I was six, I landed my first big role in “Alice in Wonderland,” with my cute yet soporific portrayal of the Door Mouse. Keep reading »

It’s Lights On For “Friday Night Lights”!


Ever since that opening shot four years ago of mega-hot Tim Riggins passed out on his couch in his football uniform, I have been thoroughly and hopelessly addicted to “Friday Night Lights.” So I am close to despondent that, even though season four of the show premieres tonight on DirecTV at 9 p.m., I won’t be able to watch. See, I—like most television hounds—have standard cable, not DirecTV’s satellite service. Those of us who are DirecTV-less will have to wait until freaking January to see these episodes. Which is why I’m harnessing the power of the internet to ask—is there anyone out there who lives in New York City, has DirecTV, and is fired up to see what’s going down in Dillon, Texas, this year? I’ll bring mac and cheese and okra, and we can call it a tailgate party.

But that’s not why I’m writing. I’m writing because, assuming you’re anywhere near as obsessive about this show as I am, you’ll want some insider info on the new season. Keep reading »

Singer Monica Comes Back On The Scene With “Still Standing” Show

R&B singer Monica has been virtually MIA since releasing The Makings of Me, her worst-selling album to date, in Oct. 2006. She’s popped up here and there, making cameos at Atlanta-based events and on reality shows like “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is,” but in the fast-moving music industry, this hasn’t been enough to keep her relevant to the masses. So what does she do to generate buzz about her new album? Star in the reality show “Monica: Still Standing” on BET to chronicle the making of her next studio album, like so many other celebs have done. Genre overkill much? Keep reading »

Does “Gossip Girl” Make Anyone Else Nostalgic For The Good Old Days Of “The O.C.”?

I have a potentially major confession to make. While I find “Gossip Girl” entertaining and enjoy the mildly provocative characters—not to mention, Chuck Bass‘ beautiful face—the show actually makes me sad. See, I worshiped its predecessor, “The O.C.” The California drama was a victorious, witty, fast-paced and semi-authentic (if not clusterf**ky) portrayal of teenage life at its most dramatic. Though they are essentially the same show set on opposite coasts, the differences are enough to make me scowl disdainfully every time I hear, “That’s one thing I’ll never tell, xoxo, Gossip Girl,” while the Phantom Planet-scribed theme song “California” always made me feel infinitely warm and fuzzy.

Betty Draper, Mother Of The Year. No, Seriously!

Betty Draper doesn’t take any crap. Well, until she booted Don out of the house last season, the “Mad Men” matron took a lot of crap from her two-timing husband. Rather, stay-at-home suburban mom Betty doesn’t take any crap from her two oldest children, Sally and Bobby, and that brand of maternalism would make her practically an endangered species in America today. In nearly every episode, Betty sternly barks: “No,” “Go upstairs and play,” or “Don’t touch that”—and the rugrats actually listen. Keep reading »
