They’re ba-aaaaaa-ck! “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is returning on Sunday, March 6, and this season looks just as bleached-blonde and silicone-stuffed as the ones of yore. There are bikini modeling shoots. There’s lesbian cast member, Fernanda Rocha. Let’s meet her, after the jump! Keep reading »
Was Fox in cahoots with Kleenex for last night’s “American Idol” episode? Because the brand of tissue might as well have been the episode’s unofficial sponsor, considering the simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story shown during the last 10 minutes. (The rest of the episode, save the weirdo who participates in Civil War reenactments with the hippie dad, was basically throw away.)
A few years ago, after dating for six years, Chris Medina proposed to his girlfriend Juliana. Two months before their wedding, Juliana was in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury. Their wedding was put on hold and Chris, along with Juliana’s mother, is his fiancee’s caregiver. “I was about to make vows just two months from the accident – through thick and thin, ’til death do us part, for better or worse,” he said. “What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?” Chris told his story to the judges and then sang “Breakeven” by The Script, saying that making it through to Hollywood would give his fiancee something to be happy about. After hearing him sing — which he did well, thank goodness — the judges invited Juliana into the room. Steven Tyler leaned down to whisper in her ear, in a moment that seriously had me heaving with sobs, “I just heard your fiancé sing. He sings to you all the time. I could tell. That’s why he sings so good because he sings to you.” That’s love, y’all. Keep reading »
Nineteen-year-old Scout Willis recently sat down with step-dad Ashton Kutcher to perform a song they wrote called “My Sober” for a YouTube vid. It’s a sweet little ditty and I like the simplicity of Scout’s voice over Ashton’s humble guitar strumming, but I’m sort of distracted by the fact that theirs is technically a parent/child relationship. I mean, he looks like he could be her boyfriend or older brother, especially decked out in that football jersey. It weirds me out. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Because we haven’t witnessed nearly enough of the mundanities of the Kardashians‘ lives, E! has a brand new series called “Kourtney and Kim Take Manhattan” that premiered on Sunday. The show follows the two sisters as they open up a Dash boutique in Manhattan. I thought I would rather bang my head against a wall than watch, but I’m noticing an interesting dynamic emerging between these two. Kim and Kourtney couldn’t be at more different life stages—Kim has vowed to remain single for the year and has her mind on dudes, dudes, dudes, while Kourtney has a baby and a boyfriend who, if the previews aren’t deceptive, is going to propose soon. And like happens in so many friendships and sister relationships, the two bump heads over their relationship status. Mainly in the way the two want to spend their time outside the boutique.

It’s like a story from … well …”Oprah.” Yesterday Oprah Winfreyintroduced to the world a long lost sister, Patricia, a single mother of two. In 1963, Patricia — whose last name was not revealed — was put up for adoption in Milwaukee by their mom, Vernita Lee. At the time, Oprah was nine-years-old, living with her father in Nashville and had no idea her mom was even pregnant.
So, how did Patricia come to find out she’s related to the most famous woman in the world? Keep reading »
