You probably know actor Bill O’Malley as Kurt’s currently comatose dad on “Glee.” And while he knows that all the Gleeks are desperate to find out if he makes it or kicks the bucket, Bill would rather talk about the project he is bringing to life on the side. When O’Malley isn’t listening to the sweet serenades of New Directions, he is writing and producing the upcoming Showtime series “Shameless,” which will star William H. Macy and premiere in January. No musical numbers are involved.

After a successful ladyflower extravaganza hosted by Betty White last spring, on Monday, November 1, “Saturday Night Live” will air yet another ode to the vag. The “Women of SNL” special will blend both new and old, mixing classic clips with new material from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and others. Yay … I think? I would watch two hours of these ladies clipping their toenails. (Call me, Tina.) But at some point, “SNL” should not need these specials. The show should just have lots of funny women comics and writers all the time. Hire a funny black lady so damn Kenan Thompson doesn’t keep having to wear a dress and lipstick, you hear?

“They wanted Todd to be on the show. I think that would have been cool to see, too. But here Bristol is… doing something all new … [If I were on the show], they would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine. In fact, when Bristol said, ‘I don’t know how to dance,’ I told her, just think of it as learning some basketball plays.”
—Sarah Palin lets it slip that “Dancing with the Stars” originally wanted Todd Palin for the show before they set their sights on Bristol. And she also shares the dancing advice she gave her daughter. I guess mommy doesn’t know best. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
For the honor of Grayskull! Last week, the DVD collection of “She-Ra: Princess of Power” was released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the show. And yes, this will be what I’m getting every woman on my holiday gift list. Though episodes will also be available on iTunes and Hulu, I want the DVD extras.
She-ra, without her sword in hand, was Princess Aurora, the twin sister of Prince Adam, aka He-Man. Keep reading »
I know this question has been burning a hole in your hearts for the past few weeks: Whatever happened to Dave Good and Natalie Getz, the pair who won “Bachelor Pad“? Well, they are no longer together, which seemed pretty obvious to anyone who watched the final episode. They opted to share the $250K grand prize, so each walked away with $125K, which translates to $90K after taxes. Natalie, as she promised, is spending her loot paying off her student loans. She’s also using the cash to found a celebrity stylist firm, which is tragic considering that the girl’s favorite item of clothing is the tutu.
But Dave has far sillier plans for his money. Keep reading »
