Quickies: Joan Collins Is Bringing Glamour Back To The U.K. & Beat Up A Kardashian

  • Joan Collins is taking British women to task for their lazy grooming on her new makeover show, “Joan Does Glamour.” [Jezebel] — Gosh, I want her accent.
  • Emma Thompson has accused Exeter University in Britain of being “too white and middle class” after her adopted son from Rwanda made allegations that he was racially bullied during his time there. [The Daily Mail]
  • A sexual assault victim was denied health insurance because she was given anti-AIDS meds after her assault. The insurance company said her taking the medication raised too many health questions. [TrèsSugar] — This makes perfect sense — on Mars.

From “Melrose Place” Ashlee Simpson Should Move On To …

For those of you who’ve been watching the rebooted “Melrose Place,” you no doubt get a little giddy every time Ashlee Simpson-Wentz‘s character, Violet, appears onscreen. Violet is the daughter of the now-dead Sydney Andrews who’s majorly sketchy—on the last episode she seduced Sydney’s old lovah, Dr. Michael Mancini, and then gave him a heart attack by showing up as his nanny and threatening to tell his wife about their backseat escapades. With Ashlee, it’s hard to tell if (a) she’s a really bad, spazzy actress or (b) if she’s actually a really good actress who’s nailed playing a girl who is nutso, off-balance, and incredibly awkward in social situations. I’ve been inclined to think it’s the former, but you never know. Sadly, Ashlee’s ride on the show has come to an end. Keep reading »

The Cast Of “Glee” Prepares To “Vogue”

You know when two good things are put together and it becomes this super-sized amazing thing? Think chocolate and peanut butter or grilled cheese and tomato soup. Well, get ready for the television equivalent. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Madonna has given everyone’s favorite new TV show, “Glee,” carte-blanche rights to use her songs. Rumor has it that, early next year, there will be an episode of the show featuring only Madonna tunes. Oh, the possibilities are endless. Rachel singing “Cherish,” or Mr. Schuester giving his version of “Human Nature.” And, hopefully, Kurt will get a shot at “Vogue.” [EW] Keep reading »

Carnie Wilson Lets It All Hang Out … Again

I have seriously had enough of playing voyeur to Carnie Wilson’s ultra-public weight struggles. I liked her in Wilson Phillips and on her short-lived talk show. But then came the live broadcast of her gastric bypass surgery (gross!) and her appearance on “Oprah” to talk about it. Next was “Celebrity Fit Club,” two autobiographies, a spread in Playboy, and a gig hosting “The Newlywed Game” on the Game Show Network. But that’s not all, folks. In a move that I can only describe as seriously tacky, Carnie will be starring in her very own reality TV series on GSN called “Carnie: Wilson: Unstapled.” The show will follow her life as a working mother trying to lose 50 pounds of baby weight. Carnie, noooo! We’ve already seen the inside of your abdominal cavity—what else do you want from us? We get it. You have battled with obesity and come out the victor. We are happy for you. You look great! Please move on with your life. You no longer need to use your weight as a gimmick for success. [Google News] Keep reading »

Oink, Oink: A “Dancing With The Stars” Swine Flu Outbreak

Swine flu is now officially the enemy of everything that is good. First it infected Rupert Grint and The Backstreet Boys. Now, there’s been an outbreak of H1N1 on the set of (gasp in horror) “Dancing with the Stars.” First, dancer Derek Hough got it. “I was sicker than a dog,” he said, divulging that his fever reached 105 degrees. “My whole bed was drenched because I sweated so much. I had to sleep in the bathtub. I’ve been sick a thousand times but something was different about this—I literally couldn’t walk or move.” Next, he passed it on to fellow dancer Mark Ballas, who wore a mask to keep from spreading his germs to partner Melissa Joan Hart. Others in the cast are trying their best not to pick it up. “I’m living off of Emergen-C right now,” said Lacey Schwimmer. Ditto for Aaron Carter. “I’m a hypochondriac—I hate, hate getting sick. I use hand sanitizer every five seconds,” he said. Please, swine flu, leave our dancing reality television alone and go pick on someone your own size. [CNN] Keep reading »

If Holly Montag Has A Drinking Problem, Then So Do I!


On last night’s episode of “The Hills” there was a totally laughable subplot involving Speidi staging an intervention for Heidi‘s younger older sister, Holly. Holly, you see, had a couple of shots at a party, spent a few minutes talking to Brent Bolthouse about art (oh noes!), and then did the robot. These three things, apparently, are evidence of rampant alcoholism. Somebody get Ken Seeley on the phone! But seriously, far more problematic, in my opinion? Spencer‘s cowboy hat. Also, maybe Speidi’s time would have been better used counseling his sister Stephanie, who was busted for a DUI last weekend. Keep reading »

Am I The Only One Who Cannot Wait For Sex Rehab?

No, I’m not checking into sex rehab. I am waiting with bated breath for the premiere of VH1′s “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew.” Tracking the recovery processes of sort-of-stars addicted to crack, crystal, and booze wasn’t enough for VH1′s hardcore audience, so the shock-reality network is heading into raunchier terrain with a show that takes the same peeping Tom approach to those addicted to sex as they attempt to shake their compulsions. Boning! Who knew it could be so addictive? After the jump, the D-listers who can’t stop humping and have asked for help. Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of October 19th 2009

As it gets progressively colder and more blustery by the day, your television is probably seeming far more appealing than it did in the glory days of summer. Luckily, there’s tons of great stuff for you to watch. This week, Wil Wheaton returns to the small screen, the “Glee” kids bust a move, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” say adios, and “My Super Sweet 16″ gets a horrifying makeover. Keep reading »

Cyndi Lauper, Bret Michaels, Sharon Osbourne Make For A Rockin’ “Celebrity Apprentice 3″

Donald Trump isn’t so good at keeping secrets. The cast for “Celebrity Apprentice 3″ is supposed to be under wraps, but paparazzi photographers totally caught these famous business wannabees walking down New York’s 15th Street shooting the opening credits. And, uh, I never thought I would say this, but I can’t wait for the premiere. This season’s cast is amazing—like “Dancing with the Stars” caliber. Cyndi Lauper, Rod Blagojevich, Bret Michaels, Sinbad, Sharon Osbourne, chef Curtis Stone and baseball legend Daryl Strawberry—it’s way more surreal than “The Surreal Life.” And we just heard that, until an hour ago, Cyndi and Sharon were waiting tables at the Burger Heaven on 63rd Street, where they’d created the day’s menu. Meanwhile Bret and Curtis were doing the same at the franchise on 53rd, and maybe charging $100 for a platter? Ooh. Ooh. I know what should happen. Maybe Bret and Cyndi will hook up “Rock of Love” style? That’d be really sweet. [NY Post, Midtown Lunch] Keep reading »
