Soap Star Continues Sapphic Love Story On The Web

“Guiding Light,” TV’s longest running soap opera, will air its final episode on Sept. 8, thanks to bleak ratings. Still, like all soap operas, “GL” has its die-hard fans, many of whom have been obsessed with the storyline surrounding “Olivia” and “Natalia,” two suburban moms played by Crystal Chappell and Jessica Leccia. “Otalia,” as they’re known — soap opera fans started making up hybrid names long before “Bennifer” and “Brangelina” — are the soap’s first and only gay couple. They have never shared a romantic kiss on screen, likely because the conservative company Procter & Gamble, which produces the show for CBS, won’t allow it. Chappell says she was so sad about letting the character and the storyline go that she pushed to have it brought over to “As The World Turns,” another CBS soap, or onto the web. Procter & Gamble refused, so Chappell has taken matters into her own hands. Keep reading »

“Savage Love” Sex Column Might Become A Show On HBO

Dan Savage, sex advice columnist extraordinaire, recently blogged that he is shooting a pilot this Thursday for a possible HBO show based on his column, “Savage Love.” The idea of the show is to examine current events and cultural trends through the lens of sex, he explained. Guess HBO just doesn’t feel right with “Sex and The City” gone, huh? Keep reading »

Meghan McCain Gets A (Temp) Job!

Who else is sad that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is taking the next few months off from “The View” for maternity leave? (She had her third child this month.) I am, mainly because Lizzie helps instigate some of the show’s most entertaining brawls, and it wouldn’t be fair to expect Sherri Shepherd to up the crazy in her absence. Thank goodness “View” producers have hired Meghan McCain to cover for Hasselbeck. She’s going to do a three-day guest spot starting September 9. Also on board is former Fox News anchor E.D. Hill, who called Barack and Michelle Obama’s infamous fist bump a “terrorist fist jab.” Wait, should Hasselbeck be worried that “The View” might find a permanent replacement?

The Bizarre World Of Venezuelan Beauty Pageants

When Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez, 18, was crowned Miss Universe, she got so excited she could barely keep the crown on her head. It’s the second year in a row that a Venezuelan has won the tiara, and the sixth win since the pageant began. So why all the wins? Because in Venezuela, beauty pageants are kind of like a national sport. After the jump, the insane details of this pageant-obsessed culture. Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: Lisa Is An Instigator

I’m a little disappointed in the behavior of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast members. On last night’s episode, all the women came together for the first time this season. NeNe had arranged for a private tour of a King Tut exhibit that had come to Atlanta. Kim showed up, and I think the only reason she did was because you can’t exactly have a show about five women if they’re never around each other. She latched onto newbie Kandi because Kandi genuinely reserved judgment about her until they had a chance to meet and talk. While they were chatting, Lisa made fun of Kim’s singing and tried to convince NeNe and Sheree to interrupt the conversation. This is why Lisa is an instigator. She tried to get the beef going once again at a museum exhibit. Remember, Lisa was the one who told Sheree about NeNe’s song last season, and we know that was partly to blame for the feud between NeNe and Kim. Keep reading »

Quickies!: Amy Winehouse Is A Dancing Queen For TV?

  • Amy Winehouse might compete on “Strictly Come Dancing,” the British version of “Dancing with the Stars.” An insider said the series’ producers are hoping the show will be able to compete with rival show “The X-Factor,” which has inked deals with several high-profile celebrities. [Celebslam] — I might have to move to London to see Amy on live television. Imagine all the laughs.
  • Lindsay Lohan is too “jaded” to play the role of a sexually curious teen, say a film’s producers. [Female First] — This chick might not work in Hollywood ever again.
  • Have you ever wondered who Hollywood’s most famous trippers are? These celebrities have admitted to LSD use. [The Daily Beast] — Dan Rather? I’m shocked.

A Totally Hilarious “Real Housewives” Spoof

Bonnie Hunt and Niecy Nash spoofed Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” on “The Bonnie Hunt Show” last year. Although the video is from 2008, it’s still hilarious, especially given what we know about NeNe and Kim’s friendship. Bonnie is a dead ringer for Kim, but Niecy will always be Niecy to me.
