Fox News Interview Dissolves Into Flirtfest


Here’s another example of the “quality journalism” that goes on over at Fox News. In a segment about finding jobs, anchor Ainsley Earhardt interviews Uri Man on advice for job seekers. Ainsley starts out on the right path, but is immediately sidetracked when Uri compliments her yellow ensemble. Uri returns to the topic, for a sec, creepily mentioning how he read about Ainsley and knows where she went to college. Then Ainsley comments on Uri’s pink shirt and flirts with him. Click above to watch the first date interview. We wonder if they did it after this segment? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of July 27th 2009

This week is shaping up for awesomeness all around in TV land. Jillian will finally pick her dude on “The Bachelorette,” though we have a sneaking suspicion that it will be Reid rather than the two she’s kept around for the finale. Diddy returns to make a band—this time, his own. “More to Love” and “Holidate” will both premiere.

“True Blood” Recap: Bill Compton Shows His Animalistic Side

On last night’s episode of “True Blood,” we finally got to see another side to Bill Compton, which had been hinted at, but never seen. Bill had always told Sookie that he wasn’t always such a gentile vampire, eager to mainstream. In a flashback scene that takes place in the ’20s, Bill and his maker/lover, Lorena, pretend to be French (hilarious!), Bill sings and plays the piano (even more hilarious!), glamor a couple into having a foursome with them, and then feed on the hapless lovers before screwing on a bed covered in blood. HAWT. Keep reading »

Mary Jo Buttafuoco Explains Why She Stayed With Lying, Cheating Husband

In 1992, a 16-year-old girl named Amy Fisher pointed a gun at Mary Jo Buttafuoco’s face and fired it. Amy had been having an affair with Mary Jo’s husband, Joey Buttafuoco, and his wife didn’t even know anything was going on until that day. Mary Jo survived the close-range gunshot wound, and she ended up staying with her husband for 10 years, while he reportedly lied about the affair and more. Now, Mary Jo has a new book, Getting It Through My Thick Skull: Why I Stayed, What I Learned, and What Millions of People Involved with Sociopaths Need to Know in which she discusses her former husband’s supposedly sociopathic behavior. Since there has been a lot of debate lately about why women stay in bad relationships, here’s a clip of Mary Jo explaining herself. From the sound of Joey’s statement in response, his ex-wife might get into trouble for pronouncing him a sociopath. [Good Morning America] Keep reading »

Cats Are Funny!

A lot of people up here in this website are dog people. Me? I’m a cat person. (RIP Kurtis!) I love this animated series, “Simon’s Cat,” in which a guy named Simon suffers the various hijinks of his feline friend. The cartoons are created by Simon Tofield, a British animator who has three cats: Hugh, Maisie and Jess. The online ‘toons have proved so popular that this October will see the publication of Simon’s Cat, the book. It takes a long time for Simon to create new animated webisodes because the process is so labor-intensive. In the latest installment, “Fly Guy,” Simon’s cat gets all obsessive the way cats do over a housefly, and his owner deals with the consequences. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

RIP: Alexis Cohen, aka Glitter Girl, From “American Idol”

Sad news. Alexis Cohen, 25, who got attention for her two auditions for “American Idol,” was hit by a car and killed in Seaside Heights, NJ. Cohen is memorable for both the copious amount of glitter she wore to her auditions, but also her, um, unique singing voice, which made her rank high among the worst, but most entertaining, “AI” auditions. I thought she was kooky and fun and had a lot of chutzpah for flipping off Simon Cowell. The police are calling her death a homicide and are looking for the hit-and-run driver. RIP Alexis.

Trailer Park: “Orphan,” “The Ugly Truth,” And “G-Force”

Summer is really great, but aren’t you sooo bored with all the nice weather and nature and crap? Yeah, we get it, it’s pretty out, now stop gloating you hussy season. I don’t need your vitamin D, sun. Give me artery-clogging movie-theater popcorn and one of those Coke slushies and I’m golden all year round. This week, consider adoption with “Orphan,” ponder the state of gender relations with “The Ugly Truth,” and check out “G-Force,” just cause isn’t it a miracle we haven’t run out of animals to animate yet?

“16 & Pregnant” Finale Shows What Life Is Like After Labor

Last night on the season finale of “16 & Pregnant,” Dr. Drew interviewed all six of the teens who gave birth in the show’s first season (it has been picked up for a second). Five out of the six girls ended up keeping their babies to raise, but it was the girl who gave her daughter up for adoption that had the biggest impact on viewers and Dr. Drew. Catelynn (along with her boyfriend/step-brother Tyler) showed an unbelievable amount of strength and maturity in making her decision to put little Carly up for adoption, emphasizing both before giving birth, after labor, and then again on the reunion that concentrating on what was best for Carly – not her own selfish desires – gave her the strength she need to see her decision through.
