The Snuggie: The Perfect Winter Onesie

Currently, my most favorite infomercial is for the Snuggie which is basically an adult (well, they make ‘em for children too) onesie. According to the infomercial, it’s perfect for wearing around the house and to outdoor winter sports games. It is literally the most heinous and stupid thing you could ever wear, but I have to admit it looks comfy. I would take mine up a notch with some Uggs. Keep reading »

“Intervention”: Nicole Is NOT Walking On Sunshine

Some people are addicted to heroin. Others have a constant craving for sex. My vice? A&E’s “Intervention.” I watched the episode about Allison, who huffed computer duster, like, 10 times (“It’s like I’m walking on sunshine!” she crowed while sucking on the stuff). But last night’s episode redefined “out of your mind.” Nicole has an eating disorder, but she’s not your garden variety bulimic or anorexic. She “eats” only by feeding tube, which pumps liquid food into her stomach. She hasn’t swallowed in 14 years. Keep reading »

Carrie Bradshaw Is Dead

Once upon a time, Carrie Bradshaw was a role model for women across America, and “Sex and the City” promised a Manolos and men-filled life. Even after the show was canceled, it lived on in reruns, and the movie version brought lady viewers back in droves. Now, though, the recession promises to finally put to bed women’s “Sex and the City” pipe dreams, or so says Vanity Fair, when one male writer takes a ride on the “SATC” bus tour. From a sad visit to the sex shop where Charlotte bought her Rabbit vibrator to the Magnolia Bakery cupcake-eating gaggle of female tourists who ragingly recount every single episode, some women are still desperately trying to hold on to “Sex and the City” escapism, instead of sinking into the reality of the great 21st century depression. By the end of the tour of this female fantasyland that never really existed: “We all realize what an obsessively ridiculous, embarrassing, empty, and needy exercise this has been.” Us, too.

Guy Gets Dumped Via His Blog


“Sean recorded private webcam conversations with his girlfriend and put them on his blog. When she finds out, things go from bad to worse.” I’m not going to spoil “Dumped” by saying too much about it, but suffice to say it’s about a guy who gets dumped, and it has a surprising twist. Thanks to Kasia at Current for sending it. Keep reading »

Jon Stewart Doesn’t Understand Why Mike Huckabee Hates Gays

Happy Day Without A Gay! Jon Stewart made his feeling about gay rights and gay marriage known on last night’s “Daily Show,” where he tore guest Mike Huckabee a new one. Nicely, of course. Clip above! Keep reading »

“J**z In My Pants” = Our New Jam

Last night’s digital short on “Saturday Night Live” was a music video for the song “J**z In My Pants” from Andy Samberg and his “band” The Lonely Island. Molly Sims, Jamie Lynn Sigler and, honorary “SNL” cast member, Justin Timberlake, make appearances too, and it is gross/hilarious/highly groovy. Keep reading »

Britney Spears To Appear On Project Runway?

In case ya’ll missed it, Britney’s birthday was this week, and rumormongers duly noted that Heidi Klum showed up at Britney’s birthday bash. What does it all mean? It could be that Klum is courting the beweaved one for an appearance on an upcoming season of “Project Runway.” Which would certainly be, um, interesting. “‘Heidi’s smart: she knows that Britney can do wonders for a show’s ratings, there’s been a lot of drama at ‘Runway’ — it would be huge for her to get Britney,’” a source stated. On the other hand, Brit-Brit would certainly make for a unique fashion icon. Perhaps contestants could create fashions based on Brit’s many moods. Frap-toting, pink-wigged lunatic with a British accent. Bald-headed in a hoodie, armed with an umbrella. Postmodern school girl gone wild, redeconstructed. The possibilities are endless, really.

Nip/Tuck As Wack As Ever

I’m a die-hard “Nip/Tuck” fan. Those LA plastic surgeons and their plastic patients — they’re all so strange. I love this surreal new promotional spot for the upcoming sixth season, which premieres on FX on January 6, 2009. The forthcoming episodes will include guest star Rose McGowan as plastic surgeon Teddy Lowe, reuniting her with her “Charmed” costar, Julian McMahon. If the promo is any forecast of what the sixth season holds — with its synchronized plasticized ladies dancing around with surgical scalpels and syringes — I’ll be tuning in for sure. Keep reading »

Paul Rudd, Beyonce, & Justin Timberlake Show Up For The Gayest “SNL” Ever

Last night’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” was the gayest in the show’s history. From man-on-man kissing skits to Justin Timberlake appearing as a unitard-clad dancer in a Beyonce video shoot (see clip above), “SNL” seemed to be saying, “Gay community, we love you.” Now doesn’t JT have nice stems?

Then Beyonce went and put on this weird bionic hand glove and performed the HELL out of “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”, doing nearly the entire “Mexican Breakfast” dance routine. Clip of THAT after the jump… Keep reading »

Top Chef Is Back!

Top Chef” is back on Bravo, y’all! I’m so excited. I think it’s one of the best reality TV competition shows and unlike, say, “Hell’s Kitchen,” these chefs are actually insanely talented. Well, from what I can see. It’s not like Taste-O-Vision has been made yet (get on that, scientists). After the jump, I break down some of the stand out contestants and what I think they’ll be known for this season. For the record, you should probably take my recommendations on who is going to win the show and start placing bets. You see, I predicted on episode one of this season’s “America’s Next Top Model” that Analeigh would win and she’s now in the final three — if I had only trusted my instinct and bet on her at Bodog.com, I could be on the way to winning, like, $1000. So trust my instincts. Keep reading »
