Jim And Pam’s Wedding Dance


OK, SPOILER: If you haven’t watched last night’s special episode of “The Office” yet where Jim and Pam get married, you may not want to watch this clip or read the rest of this post. Although, seriously, if you were such a big fan, wouldn’t you have found a way to watch the show by now? Anyway, in what might have been the best fictional wedding ever, Jim and Pam’s guests re-enacted the infamous JK wedding dance that became a YouTube sensation earlier this summer. No worries for the happy couple, though, who managed to sneak away an hour before the ceremony and marry in a very secret, very private wedding aboard the Maid of the Mist (and if you happen to get a little misty watching, well, you’re only human). Clip above. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Ellen Page Mocks Hipsters In HBO’s “Stich N’ Bitch”

Brooklyn hipsters need more positive encouragement like I need a hole in the head. But I’m still thrilled my girl Ellen Page is writing a comedy for HBO about mankind’s most poser-ific social group. The “Juno” star, along with Alia Shawkat from “Arrested Development” and Sean Tillmann (aka musician Har Mar Superstar), will write and produce Stich N’ Bitch, a show about two hipster girls who move from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Silver Lake, Los Angeles in a passionate quest to be artistes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, any of the three actors might star in the show but no roles have been cast yet. Oh, pretty please, Ellen? I can’t imagine anyone else I want to watch suffer for their art.

By the way, for those of you who aren’t in the know, Stitch N’ Bitch is a series of knitting how-to books written by Debbie Stoller, the editor-in-chief and publisher of Bust, one of our favorite mags. Great name, ladies! [The Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Dudes Say Don Draper Is The Most Influential Guy Of 2009

Guess who AskMen.com readers voted the most influential man of 2009? Don Draper, who, technically, is a not a “real” man but a fictional character. Sure, I love me some hot Hamm every Sunday night, but, at the end of the torrid hour, I realize that “Mad Men” is just a television show and that Don Draper is just a caricature of a man struggling with his own demons, unwilling to face his problems head-on. So why are guys so obsessed with Don, to the point that they treat him as an actual person? Keep reading »

Meredith Vieira Throws Herself At Hot Navy Pilot Who Wants To Be A Millionaire


Being married didn’t stop host Meredith Vieira from throwing herself at a handsome Navy pilot who appeared as a guest on “Who Want to Be a Millionaire?” Max Shuman showed up in uniform to compete on the game show, where he seemed to be blindsided by Vieira’s nonstop, cougar-esque advances. “You are one handsome guy — woah!” Vieira solicited the clearly embarrassed Shuman. The host went on to make suggestive comments as the Virginia Beach, Virginia pilot attempted to answer his questions. “I’m a old horny woman!” she declared. Uh, yup. Poor Max.

Sob! Tom DeLay Leaves “Dancing With The Stars”

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay made his debut on “Dancing With the Stars” with the cha-cha and made our hearts beat to the rhythm of “Wild Thing.” But now, at the urging of doctors and ABC producers, DeLay will withdraw from the competition after being diagnosed with stress fractures in both feet from dancing. He reportedly wears foot braces when he’s not in the ballroom, but the samba he performed Monday seemed worth the discomfort to him. “What’s a little pain when you can party?” DeLay said before his last dance. Take care of your feet, Tom. We want you well enough to dance the Texas two-step for the season finale. [NPR] Keep reading »

Am I Pumped For Pam And Jim’s Wedding, Or Scared It’s The End Of “The Office”?

I’m way excited for Pam and Jim’s wedding on “The Office,” Thursday night. Almost as excited as a bridesmaid who knows she’ll be getting some from the best man. Of all the sitcom romances I’ve seen over the years, theirs is the most real, the most subtle and the most fulfilling. They’ve survived five seasons of working in the same office and their love makes even more sense now. They both broke up with fantastic people to be with each other, bought a house together at peak market value, and are still happily paying the mortgage together. They psyched us out last season when they called off their last-minute elopement at the last-last minute, when the joy of Café Disco reminded them of how much they love cheesy celebrations. To seal the deal, last season’s final episode revealed that Jim’s bun is in Pam’s oven. And now, thanks to sneak previews galore, we know that Pam and Jim are bringing all their office mates to Niagara Falls for a one-hour destination wedding special.

But am I excited … or scared? Keep reading »

We Will Be Able To Watch DJ AM’s “Gone Too Far” After All


It was tragic when DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, died of a drug overdose in late August, relapsing after more than 11 years of sobriety. One of the horrible wrinkles in the story was that he’d recently filmed a TV series called “Gone Too Far” for MTV, an “Intervention“-style show where he helped addicts down the path to recovery. After a lot of consideration, MTV has decided to air the show after all, starting next Monday at 10 p.m. “Adam felt strongly that by doing this series, he could help other addicts who were at a crisis point to get sober,” his family said in an MTV statement about the decision. “It is our hope that through airing the show that people will get to see the side of Adam that we knew and loved, not just the celebrity DJ, but the honest and caring person who gave so much of himself to help others.” Check out the final interview Goldstein did about the show, above. Get ready to choke up when he says, “Part of me is like who am I—I’m a DJ—but I have to remember this person is going to die and their family has been allowing this to happen.” [ABC News]

What do you think—does Goldstein’s death add a whole ‘nother level of poignancy to the show or is airing the show terribly morbid?

The New TLC Show “My Monkey Baby” Looks Bananas

There are special people out there in America who want to fill a parental void but don’t actually want any children. Instead of adopting a traditional pet like a dog, cat, or goldfish, these people spend as much as $5,000 to adopt a monkey, often a capuchin monkey that can grow up to 22 inches and 9 pounds. The monkeys are basically toddlers that will never grow up. An estimated 15,000 monkeys live as surrogate children within American families. TLC is currently featuring some of these families on “My Baby Monkey,” which originally aired in Britain. (You can watch videos here.)

Many of the “parents” were empty nesters before adopting their monkeys, or they had experienced troubling childhoods and didn’t want children of their own. Now, these people don’t treat their monkey children, which are sometimes referred to as monkids, like pets. Instead, the monkeys are allowed to eat at the dinner table, wear makeup and designer clothes, have their own decorated bedrooms, and get transported around in baby carriages. Keep reading »
