Sigh. Tonight, after three long (beautiful, obsessive, mindblowing) months (spent watching livefeeds 24/7), “Big Brother” will crown the winner of its 15th season, awarding either GinaMarie Zimmerman (the Staten Island native who lost her job within the first few weeks for using racist language in the house), Spencer Clawson (the “redneck” from Arkansas, who made headlines for making a questionable pedophile joke on camera), or Andy Herren (a part-time college instructor, who is gay) with the $500,000 prize. Before that, the two finalists who won the first and second rounds of the final Head of Household competition will compete in the third round; whoever comes out victorious will choose who they want to sit next to in the final two, sending the last person to the jury. The jury will decide the winner. So, after watching the live feeds incessantly, who do I think will and should win the “most controversial” season of “Big Brother”? My thoughts, after the jump! (SPOILER ALERT: I reveal who won part one and part two of the HOH competition, so don’t click on unless you want to know.) Keep reading »

Has there ever been a more pleasantly surprising addition to primetime TV than Bill Nye, The Science Guy? I think not. Look at him during his first live appearance on “Dancing with the Stars,” all soft-spoken and dapper and trying to teach everyone about science. So cute! “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while,” he says, and then dances the cha-cha-cha to “Weird Science”. The judges didn’t love it — Len Goodman likened it to a waxing experience — and unfortunately Bill doesn’t seem long for the game… but man, if this wasn’t one of the most delightful 5 minutes and 16 seconds of my young life thus far. At least, until the judges started tearing him apart, at which point I started to feel like I, and he, might actually cry. Poor Bill. [Jezebel]

Hooray For Gay Rights & Feminism! Amber Tamblyn Will Play A “Debaucherous Lesbian” On “Two & A Half Men”
Charlie Sheen isn’t even on “Two and a Half Men” anymore, but his legacy continues— his legacy of womanizing, that is. I am referring to the newest “Two” character, played by Amber Tamblyn, Charlie Harper’s daughter who — wait for it — is also a womanizer.
Sure, it’s a sign of progress that an actress will play a lesbian on one of the country’s most mainstream of mainstream of shows. (Although I’m scratching my head as to why Tamblyn, who acts in abortion rights PSAs and edits the poetry section of BUST magazine, would join the cast.) But it’s just a little bit frustrating that as Charlie Harper’s kid, Tamblyn’s character Jenny is basically serving as a female stand-in for her womanizing father. There was a hole for a tomcat and they plugged it up with a lesbian character. Keep reading »
First of all, if you don’t follow Aaron Paul on Twitter, you must. He’s lovely and he always live tweets new “Breaking Bad” episodes with the rest of us normals (sigh, only two left). His regular use of the social networking platform has earned him a respectable million plus followers who hang on his every word. One of my favorite things to do is to look at his Twitter responses and find the one person who always – ALWAYS — has something inappropriately sexual and random to say. Click on for some of my favorites.
Well. That was … DARK. Last night’s episode of “Breaking Bad” was one of the most action-packed, upsetting, well-written pieces of television I have ever seen. Shit hit the fan in ways both expected and not. Without giving away any spoilers for those of you who haven’t watched yet — what is wronnnng with you?? — let’s review the seven stage of grief following “Breaking Bad”‘s most traumatizing episode ever, as expressed on Twitter.

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Laura Prepon is leaving “Orange is the New Black” midway through season two of the Netflix hit. It’s an odd move for the actress, who hasn’t exactly had a lot of work since her career-making gig on “That ’70s Show” ended. Why would she want to leave such a successful and talked about new show, especially when her role as Piper’s drug-dealing ex has become increasingly more significant? Well, some speculate that her decision may have something to do with her being a Scientologist. Prepon has been a member of the Church of Scientology since she began dating Chris Masterson (brother of her “That ’70s Show” costar Danny Masterson), who was raised in the Church. Keep reading »
