“The Celebrity Apprentice” — Who Trump Rejected Before It Even Started

Obviously, I will be rooting for NeNe Leakes in the soon-to-start season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Donald Trump has announced the new cast, and it’s pretty awesome: in addition to NeNe, there’s Meatloaf, David Cassidy, Dionne Warwick, Latoya Jackson, Jose Canseco, Richard Hatch of “Survivor,” Garey Busey, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Rinna, Niki Taylor and Star Jones. But what’s even more interesting is who Trump didn’t pick. “We turned down 35 to 40 people,” Trump says. “We really qualify people.” [People]

So who got the big N-O? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

Deena Nicole Coins New Term: “Female Backpack”

Every now and then, in-between the fights, tanning sessions, and hot tub hookups, “Jersey Shore” gives us a something valuable. Like last week, when Vinnie showed us that it is possible for a guy to turn down sex if he knows he’s not on the page with the girl who’s offering it. This week, a nugget of wisdom came from newcomer Deena Nicole Cortese. While the girls discussed whether Sammi had gone to the gym with Ronnie, Deena said, “She’s probably sitting there watching Ronnie lift … She’s Ronnie’s backpack. She’s a female backpack.”

In a succinct, two-word phrase, Deena totally nailed what feels so off about Sammi and Ronnie’s relationship. Keep reading »

Paris Hilton Reality Television Show, Take Three

Paris Hilton has taken more rides on the reality television carousel than, oh, pretty much anyone. And she is ready to hop on once again. First came five seasons of “The Simple Life.” Then MTV’s “My New BFF,” with its UK and Dubai versions. And just when I thought maybe Paris had matured enough to not place herself up for public spectacle any longer, a new Paris show has been announced, Oxygen’s “The World According to Paris.” But don’t worry, guys. This time we’ll get the real Paris. “When I did ‘The Simple Life’ I was playing a character that I created, and I had no idea it would last so many seasons, so I had to continue doing that character, so I think people assume that’s really how I am,” Paris says. “But when they see this new show they’re going to see the real me.” Oh, the suspense.

Little Girl Resists Eyebrow Wax On “Toddlers & Tiaras”


Fifty percent of the time while I’m watching “Toddlers & Tiaras,” I have my thumb poised over the “call” button on my cell phone, ready to dial Child Protective Services. This clips falls under that 50 percent. Watch a pageant mom force her 5-year-old daughter to get her eyebrows waxed and then curse humanity. Keep reading »

Chris Harrison Defends His Rose Counting On “The Bachelor”

“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You know that. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. One of us is going home.’ It’s really about setting that moment. It’s silly. There’s really no way I can explain that it’s not silly.”

—Chris Harrison semi-defends his job on “The Bachelor” after Ellen DeGeneres points out that he doesn’t really need to step in and say, “Ladies, it’s the final rose,” because, hello, it’s pretty obvious. [People] Keep reading »

Ain’t Nothin’ But A “Glee” Thang, Baby


Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith, and several other familiar “Glee” faces teamed up for this Funny or Die spoof, “Ain’t Nothin’ But A ‘Glee’ Thang.” It’s reasonably funny, though I think it would have packed a lot more punch if Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg had made an appearance (hey, Snoop did the “Oh Sookie” video), or if the teens in the intro were sipping on gin and juice. That said, I do like the bit where Sofia Vergara gushes about Jane Lynch, which sure feels like a make good for the time her “Modern Family” co-star said Jane didn’t deserve her Emmy. And I also appreciated the random diss on AT&T in here. True dat. Keep reading »
