Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

I didn’t need a crystal ball to predict that the CW’s updated version of “Melrose Place” was going to be kind of awesome. It seemed like Laura Leighton, aka Sydney, was going to be the major player on the show—she was sprawled out in a chaise lounge in the center of the show’s cast promo pics, which was confusing because any “Melrose” addict knows that she died in a car crash on her wedding day back in the ’90s. Turns out that she only faked her death, with the help of Dr. Michael Mancini, and now has come back to be Melrose Place’s landlord. She was already, of course, sleeping with one of Melrose’s tenants, David—conveniently, Michael’s son. But then, just a few minutes into the episode, Sydney was floating face-down in the infamous Spanish-tiled pool. She’d confessed to David that she’d done something “really, really bad” and no doubt she’ll become this show’s version of Laura Palmer—the season will be about figuring out who killed her. Was it Michael, who wanted to keep her from telling his wife that they’d been boning? Was it David, who was pissed she was also getting it on with his dad? Keep reading »
For a group that can kind of be no fun sometimes, PETA sure manages to make some hot and provocative commercials. This spot, called “Cruelty Doesn’t Fly,” features Pam Anderson as a bad-ass TSA employee screening passengers before they head to their flights. Only, she won’t let anyone through wearing leather or fur. Instead, she strips them down. The most unruly passenger — whom she not only screens, but, um, has to discipline as well — is Steve-O. Andy Dick appears too, though he’s surprisingly well-behaved. The racy commercial was supposed to be shown on screens in New York’s three airports, only CNN Airport Network execs felt it was a little too over the top. They told PETA that showing the spot would be “particularly sensitive because children make up part of the demographic in airports.” What do you think—should PETA be allowed to air the ad? Or should they be focused on saving Aubrey O’Day’s dog instead? [Starpulse] Keep reading »
“The Tyra Show” came back for its fifth season yesterday! Perez Hilton (barf) stopped by as the first guest. But the main event was Tyra Banks, who is usually weaved to within an inch of her life, hosting the whole show with her natural hair.
Unforch, Tyra’s real hair is anticlimactic—i.e. she’s not bald. Underneath those weaves and extensions she sashays down the red carpet in, she has regular, boring, shoulder-length brown hair. On yesterday’s show, though, she may have straightened it or had a relaxer in it or something, because it was not kinky in the slightest—which kind of defeats the purpose of her saying “It’s my real hair!” Doesn’t it?
Anyway, during the show, her hairstylist, Oscar, blow-dried and curled her natural ‘do, while she chatted with three women who have some serious issues about their real hair. One of her guests was a biracial woman whose white mom didn’t want people to know she had a black father. This evil mom shaved her daughter’s hair off as a kid because she didn’t want a “nappy-headed baby.” Keep reading »
- Some guys in Asbury Park, New Jersey gave Whitney Houston a tribute by performing her song “Million Dollar Bill.” [The WOW Report] — I would have guessed they were on Fire Island, not in Asbury Park.
- Days before Demi Moore chastised Perez Hilton for publishing suggestive photos of her daughter Tallulah Willis, 15, Perez promised Tyra Banks on her talk show that he’d stop making derogatory statements towards minors. [Starpulse] — Perez must have been waiting for the episode to air before he changed his ways. Or maybe his ghostwriter had no idea the promise was made?
- Matt Damon said he had the “funnest” time gaining weight for his starring role in “The Informant.” [PopEater] — I still love you, Matt, even if you don’t have the best grammar.
Last week we confessed our earliest celebrity crushes, and a few of the desperate ways in which we tried to get their attention. But George Clooney’s #1 fan takes the cake. In the video above, George is taking questions at a press conference at the Venice International Film Festival, where he’s promoting “The Men Who Stare At Goats.” Skip ahead to about 1:25 to hear (and briefly see) a male Clooney fan strip off his shirt and declare his love for the actor. Clooney handles the outburst with his usual debonair class. DListed] Keep reading »
