Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of November 23rd 2009

It’s Thanksgiving week, and you know what I’m thankful for? My grotesquely oversized television. And thankfully, there’s lots of amazing stuff to watch this week, from the new show “Find My Family” that’ll make you cry like a baby, to the season finale of “Dancing With The Stars,” which will have you standing up and cheering—well, at least if Kelly Osbourne wins. But you know what I’m most looking forward to when it comes to the boob tube? Friday’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” marathon, “Chillin’ With Dylan,” on SoapNet. Don’t even bother calling me during the day, mkay? Keep reading »

WTF? Oprah Teams Up With The “Secretary” Screenwriter

Poor Oprah. Girlfriend is having a total midlife crisis! First she quits her cash cow of a TV show; now she’s hiring the screenwriter who wrote sadomasochism spectacular “Secretary” to work on a project together. Yep, you read that right: Oprah’s Harpo Films has teamed up with Erin Cressida Wilson — who wrote all those jerk-off-worthy spanking scenes in “Secretary,” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader — to pen an hour-long series pilot for HBO. According to Variety, the show will be about a woman who ditches her “seemingly perfect” husband and kids in Santa Monica for the “underbelly” of Los Angeles, where she fulfills her “secret fantasies and desires.” Frankly, the words “Oprah Winfrey” and “spanking” appearing in the same paragraph makes us want to ralph. But we must admit we are intrigued about what these two ladies will cook up. [Variety] Keep reading »

Jon And Kate Get A Big Step Closer To Divorce

Do you guys realize that it’s been five whole days since we wrote about either Jon or Kate Gosselin? I know you appreciated the vacation. And sorry to break the streak, but there were big happenings in Gosselin land over the weekend. On Saturday, the former couple began mediated arbitration. The day got off to a photo-op-baiting start when Jon showed up with a dozen long-stemmed roses for Kate, supposedly still under the guise of wanting to reconcile, though he’s continued his relationship with Hailey Glassman. Kate refused the roses, of course. Then the two sat down at a table with assorted lawyers and mediators and talked through issues like child custody (Jon is expected to give it to Kate), dividing up their assets, and child support. Arbitration was scheduled to continue today, but things went so smoothly on Saturday that today’s session wasn’t necessary. The arbitrator should have a decision on all these issues within a month, which means the two could ring in the new year as singletons. And maybe we won’t have to pay attention to them anymore? Please. [People] Keep reading »

The Best Ice Skating Routine Ever!


This skater, seen practicing for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, can really spin and she has an unusual trick up her sleeve. If ice skating were really like this, I’d find it interesting, rather than predictable. Keep reading »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Backflips On A Meh Episode Of “SNL”


Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and while it was an improvement over January Jones’ epic failing the previous week, the episode was meh. The best moments were definitely JGL’s singin’ and and dancin’ and back-flippin’ in the opening monologue (above), as well as his turn as Jason Mraz on “The Mellow Show,” featuring an appearance by Dave Matthews as Ozzy Osbourne, after the jump.

Don Draper Is A Doll

Do you want Don Draper? Don’t we all? A New Zealand ad agency tasked with promoting “Mad Men” — apparently, the show’s not a hit there — created this very special Don Draper doll out of a Ken doll. “See him drink, pitch, & philander,” the box promises. It’s so cute when it’s tiny. [Vulture] Keep reading »

The Curse Of The Lifetime Movie?

I’ve developed a theory. Maybe I am just overly paranoid, but there seems to be some kind of curse associated with starring in a Lifetime movie. The pattern is: be in a Lifetime movie and then things go down the tubes. Take, for example, former “American Idol” Fantasia Barrino. I knew that her Lifetime flick “The Fantasia Barrino Story,” in which she starred as … um … herself, would be a stinker, but are you aware of what’s become of her life since then? She’s broke, her $1.3 million mansion is allegedly in foreclosure, she’s dating a married man who works at T-Mobile, and she’s supposedly starring in an unscripted VH-1 reality show with Rudy from “The Cosby Show.” This is very, very bad, people. I’m starting to think this Lifetime curse is legit. [Celebitchy]

After the jump, several more stars who have fallen prey to the Lifetime curse. Keep reading »

It Pays To Be The Mean Girl On “Project Runway”

Did you watch last night’s season finale of “Project Runway“? Yeah, I didn’t think so. I’ve been putting off writing about it all day because, well, it was kind of boring. With Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina competing, it seemed pretty clear that too-cool-for-school Irina was going to take the crown, despite maybe having knocked off her T-shirt from New York Magazine The preview for the episode tried to make it sound interesting by amping up a minor freak-out moment that Tim Gunn had backstage, worrying why everyone wasn’t lined up to get the show started on time. Carol Hannah dealt with her stomach bug. Irina half-accused Althea of stealing one of her ideas. Althea rolled her eyes. As the three women showed their collections, there were definitely some nice things, but, honestly, the only real highlight was seeing Jaslene from “America’s Next Top Model” stomping her bad self down the runway. In the end, Irina won. And it was touching seeing her Eastern European dad, who she’s said multiple times doesn’t think that a woman can make it as a fashion designer, get teary over her success. But all I can say is, I hope next season they figure out how to wake this sleepy series up. Keep reading »
