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. But never fear, I have scoured the listings and come up with the TV happenings you won’t want to miss.

“What’s happened with that is all very complicated. There are a lot of emotions. I’ll probably have to go to therapy at some point. But I love Vincent. The film is tragic and beautiful, and I’m proud of it and my performance. I’m sad that people think one way of the movie, but what can you do? I’ve done many explicit sex scenes, but I’m not that interested in doing any more. I’m more self-aware now and wouldn’t be able to be as free, so why even do it?”
—Chloe Sevigny talks to Playboy about her infamous not-at-all-faked BJ scene in “The Brown Bunny,” and how it’s led her to pull back from doing sex scenes. More on how that affects her role on “Big Love” after the jump. [Playboy] Keep reading »
I know what I’ll be doing Friday, January 21, 2011, at 10:30 p.m. EST: watching “Portlandia,” duh. “Saturday Night Live”‘s Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein will star in this IFC sitcom mocking the too-PC-for-their-own-good residents of Portland, Oregon. Of course, it’s not actual Portlanders who are being made fun of, but the types of people who dumpster-dive for fruit (ew) and “put birds on things.” [YouTube via IFC] Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
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.
