  • Laverne Cox became the first openly transgender Emmy nominee today, receiving a nod for her work in “Orange Is The New Black.” In a celebratory statement, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said, “Today, countless transgender youth will hear the message that they can be who they are and still achieve their dreams — nothing is out of reach. Laverne’s success on a hit series is a clear indication that audiences are ready for more trans characters on television.” Damn straight! [The Wrap]

  • The website for Farrah Abraham’s new frozen yogurt shop was hacked today resulting in an oh-so-graphic GIF from her “Back Door Teen Mom” sex tape. Oh dear. [Starcasm]

Move Over NYC/Atlanta/New Jersey/Beverly Hills, Because Here Come “The Hotwives Of Orlando”

Move Over NYC/Atlanta/New Jersey/Beverly Hills, Because Here Come “The Hotwives Of Orlando”
"Get your finga outta my face.”

From the same people who brought us such ah-mah-zing mockumentary series as “Burning Love” and “Newsreaders,” comes a new show about female empowerment and the betterment of mankind.

SIKE!

It’s about completely vapid Florida-based housewives who wear tacky dresses, drink too many mojitos, and prefer their men like their chocolate—rich. It’s called “The Hotwives Of Orlando” and, judging by the trailer, it’s going to be our next dose of Hulu-prescribed Prozac. Keep reading »

9 Reasons You Should Binge On "Orphan Black" Before Season 2 Starts
Here are nine reasons you need to be all over this BBC show. Read More »

The Emmy Awards are bullshit. I just need to say that. They are boring and they often play it safe and they are the award show I am least excited to watch, but STILL. I am disappointed. Dismayed even. Why? Tatiana Maslany should have been a shoo-in for a nomination for Best Actress in a Drama for “Orphan Black.” The fact that she was overlooked is a goddamn TRAVESTY. But I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the same folks who rewarded “Frasier” and “Two and a Half Men” year after year would be too simple-minded to understand the brilliance of Maslany’s bevy of fabulous performances on the BBC show, which just ended its second season.

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching "So You Think You Can Dance"

Of all people in the world, my jock-y, mainstream, but also book-nerd boyfriend was the person who got me into watching “So You Think You Can Dance”. When I told him I hadn’t seen it, he scoff-laughed and said, “You’re gonna watch it,” then proceeded to wax poetic about the show and how he wishes he could animate. I thought I was just going to be humoring him, but after spending the entire first episode of season 10 going “DAAAAAMN” at the dancers’ auditions, I was hooked.

And it turned out he was right to be as enthusiastic as he is — there are a million reasons to love it. Here are some of the best. Keep reading »

Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Neil Young, Performs Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” With Crosby, Stills & Nash

Jimmy Fallon Impersonates Neil Young, Performs Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" With Crosby, Stills & Nash
Crosby, Still, Nash & Neil "Jimmy Fallon" Young!

Neil Young is on my list of sacred musical artists, but I have to hand it to Jimmy Fallon — his impersonation is damn near flawless. Last night on “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy donned a ratty bobbed wig and brought out special guests Crosby, Stills & Nash for a reunion of sorts, performing, of all things, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” Why? Because WHY NOT. This is the second time Jimmy has paid tribute to Neil — in 2012, Bruce Springsteen joined him in full ’70s-era Boss regalia on “Late Night” and the two performed Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair.” Check that out over at Idolator!
