The New “Teen Moms” On The Block

While you were busy hating on Amber Portwood, MTV announced its cast for “Teen Moms” season two. They are Janelle, the party girl who clashes with her mom over taking care of her son; Chelsea, the beauty school hopeful who is moving in with her best friend; Kailyn, the girl who dreams of college and juggles two jobs; and Leah, the former cheerleader with twins. I personally am most excited for Leah—her episode of “16 and Pregnant” was so touching and gave me the best cry I’ve had all year. Keep reading »

Why We Love To Hate Amber Portwood

I remember when gossip columns devoted space to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Now we’ve got Amber Portwood, the young woman on “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” who Star magazine says is pregnant with her second baby. Amber is already the mother of a 2-year-old daughter, Leah, with ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Star says she’s dating a cage fighter named Clinton Yunker and “is hoping that the child is Shirley’s nonetheless.”

There’s no escaping the “Teen Mom” girls now. Just admit it: it’s dirt cheap for paparazzi to photograph them, so they are claiming tabloid domination. And while Catelynn and Tyler (who gave their kid up for adoption) are the couple who tug our heart strings, you couldn’t avoid Amber if you tried.

And that worries me. Keep reading »

The “Jersey Shore” Crew Is Back. And The Third Time’s The Charm?

It seems like they just left our TV sets a few short days ago, and now the “Jersey Shore” crew will be back on January 6th. This time, they’re back in Seaside Heights, a development the guys are excited about because, as Vinny put it, “Jersey girls are a little bit easier.” I’m most excited to meet Deena Cortese, who says she and Snooki are like “two little meatballs.” Awww.

Hugh Jackman’s Zip Line Snafu On “Oprah”

Yesterday, Oprah did an ode to Australia, filming live from the Sydney Opera House. Hugh Jackman was one of the episode’s guest stars and he had a high adrenaline entrance—zip lining from the top of the Opera House down to Oprah’s stage. While the stunt went great during rehearsals, while actually filming, Hugh hit the brakes just a little too late, and swung up into the lighting rig, hurting his right eye. Paramedics rushed on stage and Oprah yelled, “Cut!.”

Chris Colfer Tackled People When He Found Out About His Golden Globe Nom

“I’m so excited I’ve been tackling everyone I’ve seen on set today whether I know them or not! Ashley Fink sent me a hysterical text message. She said she was excited that I was nominated but she was more excited for ‘Burlesque.’”

Chris Colfer on his reaction to his being nominated for a Golden Globe for the role of Kurt on “Glee.” Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, and Jane Lynch were nominated as well. I’m thrilled for Chris whether he wins or not. I’ve really appreciated his work as the lone out-of-the-closet gay teen at McKinley High. [Movieline] Keep reading »

Dita Von Teese To Commit Striptease

“CSI” just got a whole lot edgier. The show has confirmed that burlesque super star Dita Von Teese will guest-star on a January episode of the show. She will play an old-Hollywood, femme fatale type who gets up close and personal (striptease per chance?) with Sanders, played by her real-life friend Eric Szmanda. “Her character is absolutely unlike what she seems. Prepare to be tantalized and tormented,” says the executive producer. Oooh! It’s so “Black Dahlia.” The film noir plot possibilities are endless. I shall be watching. [EW] Keep reading »
