Pee Wee’s Back in Da Playhouse

Mecca Lecca High, Mecca Hiney Ho! Pee Wee has reappeared from pervert obscurity and is taking his Playhouse to the stage. Pee Wee, Jambi the Genie, Miss Yvonne, Pterri the Pterodactyl, and Clocky (minus Phil Hartman as Captain Carl, RIP) will be bringing the magic to the Music Box Theater in Los Angeles for 19 live performances in November. I know I’ll be there in wing-tip shoes and a red bowtie. I’m pretty sure “nostalgia” is the secret word. [Nerd Squared] Keep reading »

Anderson Cooper And “Real Housewife” NeNe Take Their Relationship To The Next Level


Anderson Cooper and NeNe Leakes truly heart each other. Their romance began a year ago, during the first season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Anderson appeared on “Ellen” and said, “I like to keep abreast of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ I don’t even know where to begin with NeNe. You have to sort of watch to enjoy the fullness of NeNe.” He motioned towards his chest. Keep reading »

Why Did The Real Housewives Of NYC Cancel Their Event?

A couple weeks ago, I got invited to an “amazing cocktail party shopping event”: “How To Dress to Land A Millionaire.” Ridiculous, right? But when I saw who was on the guest panel — Alex McCord and Ramona Singer from “The Real Housewives of New York City,” I knew I had to go. I even drafted a few questions I hoped to have the chance to ask the ladies. A week ago, I got an email saying the event had been canceled — well, postponed, technically, “until later in the fall.” Oh, noes! First, it was moved from Saks to some stuffy restaurant on the Upper East Side. Now, it’s postponed — perhaps indefinitely?! What do you think could have happened? After the jump, my nine best guesses as to why Alex and Ramona won’t be sharing their tips tonight on how to land a millionaire. Keep reading »

New MTV Show “Downtown Girls” Turns A Blogger Into A TV Star

It’s good to be on the interwebs. Shallon Lester, a New York Daily News gossip columnist-turned-blogger-turned-vlogger for DoubleAgent.com, has struck MTV gold. She’ll star in a new MTV “reality sitcom”: “Downtown Girls.” The show will chronicle the real-life exploits of five twenty-somethings in New York: a whip-smart vlogger/blogger, an aspiring lawyer, a chic boutique owner, a hip music executive, and a bride-to-be. It will bear no resemblance whatsoever to “The City” or “Sex and The City.” We swear. [Gawker]

“America’s Next Top Shorty” Contestants Announced

Wanna be on top? Well, these girls certainly do. The CW has released the names and photos of the 14 women who’ll be competing in cycle 13 of “America’s Next Top Model.” At this point, the show has gotten pretty formulaic. We know there’ll be a makeover episode where pounds of mascara will be washed away by tears. We know Tyra will demonstrate to the ladies how to smile with their eyes. We know that some fool will be late back to home base after the go-see challenge. But Tyra is shaking things up a bit this season on her super-popular vanity project modeling show. Only women who are between 5’2″ and 5’7″ were allowed to audition. In other words, they’re shorties, which is semi-revolutionary, since the fashion industry usually turns their back on anyone under 5’9″. Another big change? Paulina Porizkova won’t be sitting on the judge’s panel. Perhaps Kate Moss will be her replacement? Keep reading »

Kim Zolciak Admits To Hitting NeNe Leakes In “Real Housewives” Catfight

The ongoing she-said-she-said feud between Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes has a new twist. Kim has admitted to striking NeNe during an alleged brawl in April. Initially, Kim claimed NeNe choked her. Now, Kim has admitted that she smacked NeNe’s finger. She says she struck NeNe only after NeNe put hands around her throat. “I was not pleased with the stuff that’s coming out her mouth, but as far as putting your hands on somebody, absolutely not. I didn’t touch her first,” declared Kim, adding, “She put her hand in my face after she choked me the first time, and I smacked her finger out of my face.” Just say no to catfighing, ladies.

La Toya Jackson Could Join “Dancing With The Stars”

The sudden death of Michael Jackson has been the best thing to happen to his sister La Toya Jackson‘s “career,” apparently. She’s always wanted a career on par with those of Michael and Janet, but she lacks the talent. Now, La Toya could be one of the “stars” competing on the ninth installment of “Dancing with the Stars.” Reportedly, she’s been approached by the show and is in “serious talks.” At least her age-inappropriate attire will be appropriate for this venue. After the jump, our dream list of “DWTS” contestants. Keep reading »

Open Casting Calls: Keepin’ It Too Real?

A few weeks ago, “Mad Men” held an open casting call. Anyone could submit a photo of themselves dressed ’60s-style for a chance to appear on the show. Last week, New Yorkers were invited to try out for a role in “Sex and the City 2.” The roles that needed filling were for “fashion models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, urban club goers, gays and lesbians.” Today, we heard about an open casting call in Holland for “What’s Wrong with Virginia,” a movie starring Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. The studio says they’re looking for “real looking people of all shapes and sizes.” [MLive] Keep reading »
