Unlikely Style Inspiration: Charlie Kelly From “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”

This may be one of the unlikeliest Unlikely Style Inspirations ever, because as fans of “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” know, the character Charlie Kelly is an illiterate bartender who favors ripped thermal underwear and snacks on cat food. But as crazy as it sounds, there’s something endearing about this strange little man, and–dare I say it–something inspiring about his wardrobe of military jackets, scuffed up boots, beanies, and random graphic t-shirts. After the jump, a selection of apparel and accessories inspired by one of the weirdest dudes on TV… Keep reading »

Tonight: MTV To Air An Abortion Special “No Easy Decision”

Tonight at 11:30 EST, MTV will air the special “No Easy Decision,” in which teen mom Markai Durham of “16 & Pregnant” has an abortion. As first reported by Crushable, Markai got pregnant by her boyfriend James shortly after giving birth to baby Za’karia and decided to end the pregnancy. Two other young women who chose to have abortions will be depicted in “No Easy Decision” as well. According to Jennifer Armstrong at Entertainment Weekly, who exclusively viewed the special, “While pro-life critics will likely find fault with the show just for existing, no one can accuse the documentarians of making abortion look easy or fun.” Keep reading »

“The Dirty Girls Social Club” Author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez Alleges Racist TV Adaptation Of Her Book

Most authors would die to see their book made into a movie or TV show. But not Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez — not anymore. The author of The Dirty Girls Social Club got ahold of a script based on her book and was shocked to see that: 1) all the black characters were removed and changed to be of other races, and 2) all the Latina characters are sexually promiscuous, even described as “sizzling.” Seeing The Dirty Girls Social Club adapted on TV, she said, now “holds zero appeal for me.”

“The Dirty Girls Social Club,” in development with NBC, will be written by Luisa Leschin for Ann Lopez’s Encanto Productions (also known as Ann Serrano, as she is splitting from comedian George Lopez). Over a year ago, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez optioned the rights for her book to Lopez, who, with Alisa’s help, got a development deal with NBC. But the script adaptation she covertly saw when a “no one” within the company leaked it to her was so racist, sexist and overall offensive that Alisa wrote on her blog today, “I’d rather no show get made than to have my name attached to Luisa’s bastardizations.” Keep reading »

The Pauly D Show?

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.

You May Have Heard Of These Youngsters On The Jersey Shore?

Last summer we blogged the minute-by-minute excitement surrounding Snooki‘s indignifying arrest for public drunkenness on a Seaside Heights beach. As of January 6, season three of “Jersey Shore” will be on MTV and we can all watch this little meatball wobble around the boardwalk asking where the beach is and then face-plant in the sand. In this just-released trailer, we learn Ronnie gets a proctology exam (ew!) and Sammi starts some ish with Snooki’s friend Deena, and J-Woww, and Snooki, and Ronnie … Damn, this crap does not get any less entertaining!
