“Bridalplasty” Host Says Plastic Surgery Show Will Be “Cool,” “Exploitative”

MEMO:

TO: Shanna Moakler
FROM: The producers of “Bridalplasty”

We are super-psyched you are talking to the tabloids about something other than your dramz with Travis Barker. And we are happy you are plugging “Bridalplasty,” the new reality TV show you will host where brides-to-be compete in wedding-themed competitions and win plastic surgery as a prize, in OK! magazine. But we’d like to remind you, however, the first rule of extreme makeover shows is you don’t come right out and say it’s “exploitative.” That’s supposed to be on the DL! We are specifically referring to this quote: “Women will love it! … There are some good stories there, as well as some exploitative [ones].” Be careful saying stuff like that, Shanna: we would not want someone to think we take advantage of emotionally unstable women with body insecurities by putting them on television or anything. It’s best to just stick with quotes like, “It’s cool!” Next time, just talk up how every bride deserves a new nose for her big day, okay? [OK! Magazine] Keep reading »

An Ode To “The Flintstones” On Their 50th Anniversary


It has been 50 years since “The Flintstones” first premiered on ABC in 1960. It’s easy to forget about what a huge influence the Yabba-Dabba-Doo had on our existence, but those boneheaded cave-dwellers were the original gangsters of prime-time cartoons. Thirty years before we were quoting Homer Simpson, Fred Flintstone was our man with a plan. They graduated cartoons from Saturday morning to prime time! If it wasn’t for Hanna-Barbera’s contributions to society, we might have been forced to grow up and watch (gasp) un-animated shows, losing out on the genius that is “South Park” and “Family Guy.” And because it’s such a special time in history, we’re going to look back on everything “The Flintstones” have given us.

Anderson Cooper Announces A Daytime Show


Perhaps to lessen the blow of the fact that this is Oprah‘s last season, Anderson Cooper has announced that he is getting into the daytime television game next fall with a new show, which he’ll do in addition to “Anderson Cooper 360.” He said in a statement, “Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way.” And by ‘new way,’ we hope he means he’ll be just as hilarious as he was during his guest hosting spots on “Live with Regis and Kelly.” Check out the clip above where he thigh dances with Kelly Ripa.

Angelina Leaves “Jersey Shore”—Again

Ruh-roh. She may have joined the show thinking of herself as the Kim Kardashian of Staten Island, but last night Angelina left “Jersey Shore” — yeah, she left again — a broken woman. Or, as her cast mates call her, “the Staten Island dump.” Keep reading »

Mitchell And Cam Finally Kiss For The Camera On “Modern Family”

Blink and you might have missed it: The revolutionary first on-air kiss between “Modern Family” gay couple Mitchell and Cam took place last night, and it was about as steamy as a kiss between a grandson and his grandma. The bigger kiss in the scene was between Mitchell and his father Jay. As if to show that not all same-sex affection is the same (of course), Mitchell and his father peck before he and Cam do.
