It’s official—the first “Jersey Shore” cast member has been given their own spin-off show. The pilot for the new series was shot this fall and follows the life of one Pauly Delvecchio. “He’s distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed, and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with,” MTV’s head of productions explained. “We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.” I’d like to propose an alternate theory on why Pauly D is the first of the “Jersey Shore” crew to get his own show: Snooki and The Situation demanded too much money.

Back in November, we told you that Warner Brothers is making a new “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” movie, only without Sarah Michelle Gellar, who became a girl power icon on the TV show, or Joss Whedon, who created both the series and the 1992 movie. Naturally, this doesn’t have us Buffy-philes very happy. But some casting news could be the silver lining on a cloudy day. Apparently, Heather Morris—aka the amazing Brittany on “Glee“—is being courted for the role. “They’re considering me!” Heather says. “I found out and I almost peed my pants ’cause I was so excited!”
So how does Heather compare to her Buffy predecessors, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kristy Swanson? A full analysis after the jump. Keep reading »
“At dinner recently, a friend of mine went through the list of leading men I’ve kissed: Chris Noth, George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan, Aidan Quinn, Matthew McConaughey … I realized I’ve been very lucky. But my husband is very secure in himself. He knows he has nothing to worry about. To me, none of them compare to him – he’s really rather yummy.”
—Julianna Margulies of “The Good Wife” says she prefers making out with her lawyer husband to all the famous guys she’s had to smooch onscreen. Yeah, we kind of agree. Holy hotness! Where do we find one? [People] Keep reading »
Not to sound like Scrooge, but here’s yet another reason—besides the freezing cold, short days, and epic lines at every store everywhere—why this is actually not “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”: Television is notoriously sucky the week of Christmas.
