Serena Williams Teaches Jon Stewart To Dance


www.thedailyshow.com


I love Serena Williams. And I love her even more after watching this clip of her on “The Daily Show” last night, where she teaches Jon Stewart how to dance if he wants to pick up the ladies. (Scoot forward to :45.) She also reveals that she and Venus often have dance-offs. Glad to see the whole U.S. Open line judge incident hasn’t stuck with her. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Caught On Tape: A 26-Year-Old Falls On Subway Tracks As A Train Arrives — And Lives!


Now, I’m not judging—who hasn’t been there?—but 26-year-old Sophia Hartdegen sure looked rip-roaring drunk when she fell off the platform and on to the Boston subway tracks on Friday night, just as a train appeared in the distance. Lucky for her, a Transportation Authority employee just happened to be on the platform too and called the subway driver, Charice Lewis. Lewis pulled the train’s emergency brake and it stopped just short of the station—literally inches from Hartdegen. Lewis told the CBS “Early Show” that she got out of the train cab, and thought, “Please God, let this woman be OK.” And she was. Hartdegen just smiled up at her. Totally how a sober person would react. [AP]

Will Cough Drops Find The Inner Cougar In Any Mom?

Don’t you just wish Don Draper would step out of the TV screen and teach some advertisers a thing or two? This weird cougar mom ad for Halls cough drops (cough drops?!) is a case in point. It gets your attention, but the cougar mom/cough drops connection just doesn’t make any sense. And not in a good, absurdist, this-could-be-an-“SNL” skit way.

Memo to advertisers: just because cougars are “hot” right now doesn’t mean jokes about older women and sex can be made to sell any thing. Keep reading »

Miss J Reveals He’s A Father On “Tyra”


“Runway diva coach extraordinaire,” Miss J. Alexander, who is promoting his book Follow the Model, was on “The Tyra Show” yesterday and gave what was actually a totally refreshing and interesting interview. I was surprised, frankly, because Miss J plays such a caricature on “America’s Next Top Model,” and I didn’t expect to see him drop the flamboyant antics in favor of getting real. He revealed to the audience that he’s a father to a young boy, who was conceived after he and his ex-boyfriend both donated sperm to a female friend who wanted to have a child. While his sperm didn’t take (the ex’s sperm did), he’s very involved in young Alex’s life. It was fabulous to get a glimpse into the real Miss J. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Speaks Out Against The Stupak Amendment

  • In this video clip, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) speaks out against the health care reform bill’s Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which limits how private insurance companies can offer coverage for abortion. More conservatively inclined Democrats voted for the House of Representative’s version of the health care bill this past Saturday night only after the Stupak-Pitts Amendment was included. The video is a little snoozy at first, but 45 seconds in, Sen. Gillibrand gets to the good stuff about why Stupak-Pitts isn’t good for our reproductive rights. [YouTube]
  • Speaking of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has said today that the Senate has the 60 votes needed to block the controversial bill when it makes its way to there. Let’s hope so. [Huffington Post]

Rihanna Has A Fun Interview With Alexa Chung, For A Change


Rihanna was a guest on “It’s On With Alexa Chung” today, and Alexa was able to give the girl a break by moving the conversation past the domestic violence she experienced at the hands of Chris Brown. Rihanna talks briefly about the spike in calls to domestic abuse hotlines after her “20/20″ interview, but then we get to hear about the lighter side of her life — how she chooses her tattoos, what it’s like working with Ne-Yo, and how a fan can get her look. You know, the fun stuff someone her age should be concerned with. I’m sure this interview was a nice reprieve for Rihanna. Keep reading »

First Look At James Franco On “General Hospital”


OMG, my DVR is soooo ready to start recording “General Hospital” again! “GH” and I have been broken up for a while now — I just could not get behind Carly #3 or #4 — but with James Franco making his big daytime debut on the show next Friday, I’m ready to go back to Port Charles. By the looks of the preview, Franco is totally channeling “smell the fart acting” (a term coined by Joey Tribiani on “Friends”), testing out dramatic pauses and slightly over-the-top line delivery, all typical of great soap opera performances. However, are they giving him a love interest in Maxie Jones? Say it ain’t so!

As for why Franco wanted to be on the show in the first place? Apparently, my theory that he’d been watching the show with his grandma since he was a kid isn’t true. “General Hospital” executive producer Jill Farren Phelps said, “he had heard [soaps] are hard and thought it would be fun to try.” Plus, he liked “GH”‘s ongoing mob storyline. Ugh, James, it was SO much better in the late ’90s. But anyway. Will you be watching “General Hospital” for James Franco? Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Wale To Echo & The Bunnymen

This week, I’ve got some sad news, people. Gerhardt Fuchs, the drummer from Maserati and !!! (pronounced chk-chk-chk) — aka my favorite band — died tragically over the weekend. It was a horrible elevator shaft accident; you can read all the gory deets of how his attendance at a fundraiser went horrible awry. We join the long list of music lovers who would like to send their condolences. Fuchs was a beat maker and a very talented guy who was too young to die. (34!) Tear.

But it’s new release Tuesday, and new jams always make us feel better. So let’s take the latest tunes for a spin, shall we? This week it’s all about newcomer Wale hip-hopping his way into our hearts, legends Echo & The Bunnymen giving us classic cuts, folk singer Pieta Brown putting out her first EP, and Switchfoot and Flyleaf keeping alternative rock rockin’ on. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

Hilary Duff Is The Highlight Of “Gossip Girl”‘s Threesome


So the “Gossip Girl” threesome finally happened and, lemme tell ya, the triple kiss makeout sesh I had freshman year of college was more climactic. I didn’t watch the episode, but was sex just implied and the only thing viewers got to see of this three-way was a little smooching? The only reason, really, to click on that play button is to see Lizzie McGuire french a chick, seriously. Keep reading »
