Two “American Idol” Performances That Actually Inspired Me


I cringed a little when Ryan Seacrest announced last night that it was “Inspiration Week” on “American Idol.” It’s something they started a few years back to coincide with their “Idol Gives Back” charity mission. Although I think it’s a nice concept, the performances usually stink. The cheese factor goes way up and originality factor goes out the window as the contestants struggle to make their song moving and meaningful. Blech. For the most part, that’s exactly what happened on last night’s show—it was full of songs that I had to fast forward through, like “I Believe I Can Fly.” Pleasekillmenow. But there were two performances that actually inspired me. One in particular had me cuddled up with my box of Kleenex. I can only describe Crystal Bowersox’s rendition of the gospel hit “People Get Ready” as legendary. Keep reading »

Whee! Gabourey Sidibe Is Hosting “SNL” This Weekend!

Judging by these promos, Gabourey Sidibe‘s hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” is going to involve a lot of guns and Andy Samberg with his pants off. (But hopefully not so much high-pitched screaming.) But you know what this means, guys? There’ll actually be a black woman on “SNL” — not just Kenan Thompson in lipstick and a wig. Keep reading »

What’s So Funny About Gwyneth Paltrow Getting Punched In The Face?

I have a sense of humor. I really do. I even defended evil, bad, un-feminist Tina Fey when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” recently. But, sorry Onion News Network, I don’t crack a smile at this fake news clip, “Iron Man 2 Buzz Heats Up Over Rumors Gwyneth Paltrow Gets Punched In Face.” What, exactly, is funny about the idea of Gwyneth Paltrow getting punched in the face?

Quotable: Matthew McConaughey Overshares About Daughter Vida’s Conception

“After the show last year my lady and I — Camila — went back to the hotel and conceived the little lady who is now our daughter. I promise you me and Camila are going to try not to get so lucky this year. Two is enough. We’re flush for awhile.”

– Matthew McConaughey at Sunday’s — yeah, I know, late to the party — Academy of Country Music Awards. Thanks for sharing, Matthew. Could he be any more Wooderson? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

OctoMom Brings The Crazy Train To Oprah


Yesterday, Oprah brought the OctoMom’s Crazy Coo-Coo Bananas Show to our living room, spending the hour with Nadya Suleman and her brood. In the clip above, one of Nadya’s toddlers “riverdances” (to quote Michael K.) all over one of the octuplets, until Suleman finally notices and declares the baby-stomping “not OK.” Then Suleman coerces her older son Elijah into going to school by telling him Child Protective Services and the police would come to take him away if he doesn’t. Think long and hard about that one, Elijah. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Quick Video: Gisele Sells Soccer, Her Legs


The FIFA World Cup is coming up and someone had a brilliant advertising idea to get people watching: hot women. Totally original, we know. But how else do you explain a mini dress-clad Gisele Bundchen repping the games? Yeah, she’s Brazilian and probably actually likes soccer, but clearly the real hope is that, when love of the sport itself fails, love of Gisele’s legs might save the day. [Modelinia] Keep reading »

Jenna Bush And Bill Clinton Talk Wedding Planning


I wasn’t the biggest fan of “The Today Show” handing Jenna Bush the coveted role of correspondent. But yesterday, she did an interview that was kind of cute … with Bill Clinton. “I’m sure this is a rarity, a Bush interviewing a Clinton,” she said. “They joke that you’re my grandfather’s stepson because he talks about you more than anyone else in the family.” The two talked Haiti and, of course, wedding planning since Chelsea is getting hitched soon. “The only part of the planning I do is pay the bills,” said Bill. “But I’m participating. Chelsea’s been good enough to include me in the decisions they’re making … I admire my prospective son-in-law. I’m happy about that, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. I just hope I can keep it together when I walk her down the aisle.” Aww, Bill Clinton. Kinda sleazy dude; adorable, proud papa. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: Do Beautiful People Only Date Beautiful People?

Wendy is stuck at jury duty this week and will hopefully — knock on wood! — be back tomorrow or Thursday. Until then, here’s one of her best Dear Wendy columns.

I acknowledge and accept that I’m not a perfect 10. But what drives me nuts is that people keep telling me I’ve got no chance of finding love with someone who is hot or hotter than me. Why can’t I go for it? Why does someone like me have to settle for less? Only beautiful people can be with beautiful people? If you’re not perfect in looks, you don’t deserve anything hot? I tell people what I want and I’ve had enough experiences to say I’ve earned the right to know what I want and be selective instead of the whole “as long as they’re alive” approach. So, please, in your opinion, do you think the beautiful people can only be with the beautiful people? — Not a 10

Kate Gosselin Does The Swim On “Dancing With The Stars”


Sorry folks, but I am officially obsessed with watching Kate Gosselin‘s sad “Dancing with the Stars” routines. Last night, she and partner Tony fox trotted to “Don’t You Forget About Me” from “The Breakfast Club.” And it was … well, let’s just say that a blow-up doll would have brought more energy to it. I kind of love Carrie Ann’s comment that the dance was like “the Charlie Brown teacher’s. It’s like wah wah wah wah wah.” Please let her get voted off soon. For her own sake. Keep reading »
