Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour. I’m excited about rewatching both “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Hey Dude.” I watch the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” on SoapNet most afternoons, and get secretly excited when I see girls in babydoll dresses and/or Doc Martens on the street. But, unfortunately, MTV is trying to bring back back the things I don’t miss about the decade. Prime example: “Beavis and Butthead.” I thought this show was funny for approximately two episodes, and then even though I found it uber-grating, I had to endure another year of every guy at school doing “Cornholio” impressions in the hallway. Still yesterday, the show’s creator Matt Judge appeared at Comic-Con to talk about the reboot of the show, which will begin airing on MTV in October. Judging from the clip above that premiered yesterday, it’s just as obnoxious as I remember.
Slightly less offensive—MTV2 is bringing back “120 Minutes” starting July 30. Keep reading »
My roommate tipped me off to the new Lifetime reality series, “Dance Moms,” featuring emotionally abusive dance dictator, Abby Lee, a bunch of overzealous stage moms, and some young dancers whom I predict will spend many of their adult years in therapy. Now that Eden Wood has retired and Mackenzie appearances are over for the season, I’m over “Toddlers and Tiaras.” I need a new show to fulfill my quota of watching the many ways in which parents can screw up their children. Ya know, in case I ever decide to reproduce and need a tutorial on what not to do. “Dance Moms” oughtta do the trick. I’ve watched two cringe-worthy episodes so far and I suggest you do the same. Deliciously awful. [My Lifetime] Keep reading »
Actress/country singer Courtney Stodden, 16, and Doug Hutchinson of “Lost,” 51, can’t stop talking about how in love they are. After stopping by “Good Morning America” last week, they sat down for an interview with E! Online. Many things will strike you as odd about this clip, aside from Courtney’s strange mugging with gritted teeth, as if she were going to inhale her husband like a tube of GoGurt. For example, the two talk about their sex life. Doug explains, “Courtney was Christian and saving herself for marriage. I’ve got to say, if there’s only one caveat to the ocean between our age difference, I wished I was a virgin when we met.”
At which point, Courtney starts laughing hysterically. “It’s fine that he wasn’t! It’s all good!” she says. “He’s a tiger!” Keep reading »
“The wedding was Secret Service style insane. The crew was completely inconvenienced—there was no cell phone or email. I said thank you so much because if this [wedding] dress gets on the Internet, I’ll die! I had to be locked into the dress to protect it.”
—Kristen Stewart talks at the Comic-Con panel for “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” about the most highly anticipated moment in the flick, the wedding scene. (Well, perhaps the sex scene is just as anticipated, as parts of it have been leaked online.) It’s so crazy that her wedding dress has been guarded like a state secret. At least we know how her hair will look? [People]
People can’t stop asking Kristen about the wedding scene at Comic-Con. Another quote after the jump. Keep reading »
