There’s A Show Called “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” About Gyspy Teen Brides

Don’t let anyone tell you reality TV shows are a scourge on American television. We may have “16 & Pregnant” and “Jersey Shore,” but the UK has “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.” Apparently in its second year, “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” follows teen brides from Europe’s gypsy clans, the Romany and the Travellers. Generally speaking, gypsies tend to live nomadic lives and travel from place to place. Last night’s episode featured 17-year-old Josie and 19-year-old Swanley, who married in July only five months after they met. Had you pressed the “mute” button, however, it would be difficult to tell Josie and Swanley were having a gypsy wedding: she wore a fluffy white confection of a dress and a garter, her bridesmaids were decked out in Spanish-style fuchsia dresses, and a priest performed the ceremony in a church. (You can see some over-the-top wedding looks from stills from the first season of “My Bit Fat Gypsy Wedding” on the Guardian’s web site.) And despite the stereotypes that gypsies live on the streets, or travel around in caravans, Josie lived inside a house. According to the Daily Mail UK, the most “gypsy” thing about the bride and groom on “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” is their unconventional-mixed-with-completely-conventional lifestyle. Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway And Kanye West Both Set To Play Gay

What do Kanye West and Anne Hathaway have in common, other than being A)) human and B) famous? Well, they’re both getting ready to play gay characters. According to Ryan Murphy, Anne has just signed on to appear on “Glee,” playing Kurt’s lesbian aunt. Apparently, she dreamed up the part herself. “She’s already created [her role],” said Murphy. “She wants to play the lesbian aunt of Chris Colfer. Because everyone needs a lesbian aunt.” Here’s hoping she gets together with Sue Sylvester. [MTV]

Meanwhile, Kanye West is rumored to be taking on his first major acting role, in a movie about a gay jazz band in 1939. Keep reading »

Emmy Rossum Talks “Shameless” Sex Scenes

“It doesn’t make sense that the character would wear a bra and care at all about what she looks like when she’s having sex. Sex is meant to feel good, and she wants to feel good. Her life is so s**tty in so many ways. Some people use alcohol, some people use gambling–and some people use sex.”

– Emmy Rossum explains why she’s been willing to go nude-ish in sex scenes for her new Showtime series “Shameless.” I couldn’t help but think of Sarah Jessica Parker when I read this quote. SJP famously refused to go nude or topless for her “Sex and the City” sex scenes — Carrie Bradshaw always kept her bra on. [Vegas Magazine] Keep reading »

“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.
