This season’s cast of “Dancing with the Stars
” had me totally unenthused
, but I watched the premiere last night anyway, because I care about you that much. And I was pleasantly surprised by the standout dancer of the night—Ralph Macchio of “The Karate Kid.” (No, not Jaden Smith. The original “Karate Kid” kid
.) Ralph was so charming and debonair, adopting the air of a Brat Packer as he and his partner Karina Smirnoff did the Foxtrot and earned the night’s high scRalph Macchioore of 24. The hardest part for Ralph? “I have these orangutan arms, I call them, and the first thing Karina said was, ‘When they are done right, they are done fantastic, and when they are not, they will stick out,’” he said. “So I said to myself, every time I hit, I have to just go and reach … and I did it.” Wax on, wax off indeed.
Also, can we talk about how Ralph is 49? Dude is such a baby face. [EW] Keep reading »
I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully Maddow is flattered and doesn’t think Marc is a stalker. But even if he is … hey, it’s pretty catchy! [YouTube via After Ellen] Keep reading »
Behold, the trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” The rest of the interwebs is excited about it because Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz seem to have a love/hate flirtation going on as they search for the fountain of youth, even though Johnny has said Jack Sparrow is gay. I am excited about it because … it’s a mermaid movie! A genre that should be much more common. Keep reading »
Ugh, you know what’s more annoying for a gal than not
having a gay best friend? Having a gay best friend that’s a total disappointment in the fun, fabulous, and fierce department. Like, what’s the point of having a gay bestie who doesn’t want to drinking flirtinis, dance to Lady Gaga, or get mani/pedis? What’s the point of being a gay man — or having a gay bestie — if you’re not going to be a walking stereotype? (No, seriously, I am actually just disappointed I don’t have a disappointing gay best friend like the handsome Tyler Coates, above, whose Twitter/Tumblr I follow obsessively.) [Queerty

Earlier this week, a bitchtastic UCLA undergrad named Alexandra Wallace took to YouTube to complain about her Asian classmates. Because clearly the most sensitive time to do that is days after Japan has been destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami! But still, Alexandra griped about “hordes of Asians” UCLA lets in every year who don’t have “American manners” in the library.
Surprise, surprise, Alexandra Wallace is now leaving UCLA. Keep reading »
