Judging “American Idol” Guest Judge Victoria Beckham


Welcome all, to “American Idol” season nine. Will this season be the death rattle of “Idol” or a spectacular rebirth? It’s the first season after Paula-gate and the last season before Simon quits. For the auditions shows, Victoria Beckham, Mary J. Blige, Joe Jonas, Neil Patrick Harris, and Katy Perry are stepping in as guest judges—all leading up to Ellen DeGeneres taking Paula’s abandoned chair. We are all on pins and needles waiting to find out if the new mix of judges will be pitch-perfect or pure cacophony. Last night the show premiered in Beantown with the usual mix of talentless freakazoids, manipulative human-interest contestants, and the Hollywood-bound few. Eh … if you’ve seen auditions once, you’ve seen them all. But I was less interested in the contestants and more interested in the bobblehead known as Posh Spice, who said judging “Idol” was a “dream come true.” The producers tried to edit Posh to be the kind and compassionate guest judge, but all I saw was weird robot bug eyes and a blank stare. Especially with that crazy headscarf on. Did anyone else notice how she just repeated whatever the other judges said? Plus, she swiveled in her chair the whole time. She must have been too hungry and self-absorbed to come up with original critiques. Keep reading »

OMG, Is This What Brides Sound Like On Wedding Message Boards?


This is all kinds of hilarious: Comedian Giulia Rozzi reenacts posts from brides-to-be on a wedding message board where they’re talking about engagement ring size. It’s kind of long, but worth watching till the end—or at least until the woman who takes belly-dancing classes appears. [The Message Board] Keep reading »

Ode To The Late-Night Shake-Up


Conan and Leno may be the center of the current late-night shake-up, but that isn’t stopping the other late night hosts from having a little fun with the situation. Last night Jimmy Kimmel did an impeccable Leno impression while Chevy Chase did a terrible Conan. Letterman made sure to get in a few jabs at his former (and soon-to-be-again) biggest competition, and Craig Ferguson has some choice words for the peacock network causing all the commotion. By the way, what do you guys think of Conan’s letter and how neither he nor Leno seems to think any of this is their fault? I agree that NBC is jerking them around, but if either of them had decent ratings, none of this would have happened. Call me crazy, but in my book the responsibility for making a show successful lies mostly with the host. If the host is boring or unlikable, there’s not a lot the network can do about that.

Grace Coddington Is The Coolest Cat Lady We Know


Our favorite flame-haired fashion hero Grace Coddington made a quick appearance on “Martha Stewart” yesterday in what looks like some kind of cat episode. (True story: Our dog-loving friend showed up because she thought the show was all about Grace, then was horrified to find out that all the audience members had their cats on their laps and the segment wasn’t about fashion at all.) Still, hearing her chat about her book The Catwalk Cats kind of makes us want to pick up a copy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Coming Soon: “Dear John,” More Emotional Pornography From Nicholas Sparks


Every single time I see the trailer for “Dear John,” a new tearjerker based on the book by Nicholas Sparks, two things happen. My chest starts to ache and my brain wallows, “I wish this movie was starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams!” Actually, the film stars Amanda Seyfried, whose coolness you probably recognize from “Big Love,” “Mamma Mia!” and “Jennifer’s Body,” and Channing Tatum, a hot piece of ass (with a burnt d**k). The story is about a young couple that falls in love just before he ships off to war and they keep their relationship alive via letters. It looks cheesy and heart-wrenching, if it’s even possible to be both at once, and I cannot wait to see it when it opens on Feb. 5 and have my emotions messed with. After all, Sparks’ novels all have sad, depressing endings and while I haven’t read this one (or any of them, I just see the movie versions), I expect it will be tragic too. But don’t spoil it for me, OK? Keep reading »

What Ever Happened To The Kids From “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”?

Oompah-Loompa, Doompity Doo. I’ve got an exciting update for you! If you weren’t obsessed with “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”—the 1971 version, not the Tim Burton remake—when you were a kid, then you probably weren’t born yet or maybe you lived in a remote cave. Weird kids, candy galore, a magical factory with little singing orange men? What’s not to like? I drove my parents crazy, watching the VHS tape no less than four times a week, learning all of the songs. I still do a great rendition of Veruca Salt’s “I Want the World” British accent and all. I begged my parents for lick-able wallpaper (anyone know what a “snosberry” is?), and tried to chew as much gum as Violet Beauregarde—I hid Hubba Bubba under my bed so I could pop a piece in before bed. I’m not ashamed to admit that I still watch the movie about once a year just to stay young at heart. I’m waiting for the film to lose its appeal, but so far, it hasn’t. I mean … there’s a chocolate freaking river! That’s why I was so psyched to see that Celebuzz tracked down the kids from the film. Aren’t you just dying to know where their Golden Tickets led them?

“Bachelor” Castoff Says Her Personal Life Isn’t Anyone’s Business


On last night’s SHOCKING episode of “The Bachelor,” something interesting happened. When it was revealed that Rozlyn had an “inappropriate” relationship with an ABC staff member, her defense was: “I don’t think my personal life is anyone’s business.” At first, I snorted. But then I realized she had a point. Even Chris Harrison, the show’s host, seemed taken aback. “The Bachelor” is about the search for love, a vital part of one’s personal life! What in the hell was Rozlyn trying to say? Keep reading »

Anyone Wanna Join These Swingers In Bed?


I don’t know a whole lot about the wild world of swingers, but I’m thinking that Lyn and Linda from upstate South Carolina (is that a real geographical location?) aren’t getting too much action from their personal video ad. These good-looking swingers with fashionable feathered hair are looking for fun, friendly people willing to join them in bed. Gay, straight, bi, newcomers—they want anyone to join them. But they’re totally not desperate. And you can tell by their enthusiastic delivery that they’re just about as fun as it gets in the sack. Any takers? [BuzzFeed]

Drag Queen Responds To Gay Rumors: “I Slept With Tiger”


Songwriters are often inspired by love, or hot naked bodies doing the nasty. Drag supah star Jackie Beat was touched by Tiger Woods, metaphorically speaking, and her “I Slept With Tiger” spoof to “Eye Of The Tiger” is an instant American classic! [Daily Freak Show] Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of January 11th 2010

Hold on to your seats (er, couches?) people, because this is a big television week. You’ll probably want to cancel your plans tonight so that you can watch the 100th episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” the episode of “The Bachelor” where Rozlyn gets booted for scamming on a producer, and the premiere of “Let’s Talk About Pep.” Oh, plus this week also brings the season premieres of “Southland” and “Project Runway.” After the jump, all the details.
