Levi Johnston continued along the media parade route this morning, stopping by “The Early Show” with his mom and sister Mercede to discuss this whole Palin family debacle. Among the revelations? Despite what the Palin’s are saying, he did live under their roof even before Bristol got knocked up and Sarah tots knew he was stickin’ it in. Also, he hates it when people call his family white trash, and, oh yeah, he’s totally open to modeling! Clip above. Keep reading »
Eminem’s “We Made You” video pokes fun at celebrities who have made headlines over the past couple years — Bret Michaels for his skanky love search, Jessica Simpson for her weight (should Em really be throwing stones?), Amy Winehouse for her yellow teeth and general cracked-out appearance, Lindsay Lohan for dating Sam Ronson, and Kim Kardashian for her huge booty. The video even features the star of “Nailin’ Palin,” a Hustler porno spoofing Sarah Palin. Obviously, Eminem has been reading tabloids and watching reality TV during his time off, but it’s all in good fun, or at least Kim Kardashian thinks so. “I think this video is so funny! I am a huge Eminem fan and find it flattering that he would rap about me,” said Kim. “He’s a bit harsh about some other celebrities, but you just have to let it go and have a sense of humor. Personally, I’m honored.” The video is rather hilarious, but the song isn’t that funny, entertaining, or catchy when you don’t listen and watch. It just sounds like the usual Eminem fare updated for 2009. Kudos to Dr. Dre for a banging beat, though. Keep reading »
Dating coach Rachel Greenwald was on “The Today Show” this morning schlocking her new book, Why He Didn’t Call You Back. For the book, Greenwald conducted “in-depth” interviews with 1,000 men and in her interview this morning, she laid out the ten main reasons they cited for not calling a woman back. These aren’t so much “reasons,” it turns out, as they are 10 female stereotypes that scare guys away, because of course it’s never about the men and whatever issues THEY might have, but always about the mistakes women make and how screwed up they are. What’s the number one way to buck your particular stereotype and guarantee a call-back? “Be nice,” the dating coach instructs. Watch the full clip above for other insightful advice you never would have thought of on your own. Keep reading »
After the amazing brouhaha between Kelly and Bethenny on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York,” this week’s episode was a downright snooze fest. Watching rich, middle-aged white people play tennis is about as exciting as watching the paint dry in Jill’s new Liberace-inspired apartment, and with Ramona’s new “cool as a cucumber” M.O. when it comes to Simon, we didn’t even have the pleasure of seeing her get her feathers all ruffled when he showed up as her surprise opponent. At least we can always count on the LuAnne to say something utterly ridiculous. This time, her particularly doltish remark of the episode came when the C(o)untess was visiting a group of preteen girls to talk about the importance of self-esteem. When one pleasantly plump girl said she’d like to be a model one day, LuAnne asked her to stand up and without missing a beat, said, “Well, you have a beautiful face, and you know what? Losing weight is easy.” The C(o)untess: writing the book on etiquette one social gaffe at a time!
Anyhoo, check out this hilarious “Ode To The Real Housewives Of NYC” clip above. Let’s hope next week the ladies (including Simon!) are back to their normal insanity. Keep reading »
Just when I had convinced myself that I actually enjoyed the first season of MTV’s “The City,” Lauren, Heidi, Spencer, Audrina, and the rest of “The Hills” crew are back, like the back-stabbing best friends I never had. The season premiere featured a tearful Heidi and Lauren reunion, and Spencer beating up a kid who dared to tell Heidi he saw Spencer hitting on a female bartender. And what’s this I see on the season teaser…? Keep reading »
Oh damn, Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s ex and baby daddy, is on The Tyra Show right now and he and his family are spillin’ the beans! TyTy, of course, wants to assure everyone that this is a legitimate interview — that Levi and his family are not being paid to appear. Duh, you know they picked Tyra to talk to over Oprah or Barbara Walters because Levi’s sister is probably a big fan. Above, Levi says he’s pretty sure that Sarah Palin knew he and Bristol were gettin’ it on, then assures Tyra that he and Bristol were having safe sex. Well, most of the time. Is it weird that I am oddly attracted to the cute dummy? Another clip, after the jump… Keep reading »
Love your glasses! But seriously, you need to gain some weight back. I’m all for gettin’ heart healthy, cutting back on the trans-fats and the beer intake, but you’ve taken it too far. How do I know? Because with all the poundage, you’ve lost your ability to be funny. Your “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig this weekend was terrible and we can only blame the writers so much. Your delivery was awful! I mean, who’s ever heard of a funny guy who isn’t funny? I’m not sure why you lost your giggle-inducing talent along with the weight, but if you want to save your career, you’ll start chowing down on the McGangBangs FAST. Also, be careful with the roles you choose. Your cameo in “Superbad” was genius — your starring role in the upcoming “Observe and Report” is cause for concern. Not everyone’s terrible choices go the way of Jimmy Fallon, who somehow managed to score a late-night hosting gig despite “Taxi” and “Fever Pitch.” Oh and seriously, even if you hadn’t sucked on “SNL” this weekend, I still would be suggesting you trim back on the trimming back — you were cuter with a lil’ meat on your bones.
P.S. A clip of your “SNL” monologue is after the jump, for those who were lucky enough to miss it the first time. Keep reading »

“The Virgin Daughters” is a documentary directed by Jane Treays (which aired in the U.K. last year) that follows a group of fathers and daughters as they prepare to attend a Purity Ball in Colorado Springs. I’m not sure if or when it will air in the U.S., but you can watch clips online and feel the creepiness. Apparently, one in six girls in the U.S. makes a pledge to her father to remain a virgin until marriage. In the documentary, Treays interviews a family with five daughters, all of whom have or will make a purity pledge to their dad, who says that strong male figures are at the core of this tradition. Gag. His eldest daughter remained a virgin until marriage, but, get this, she also didn’t kiss or hold hands with her fiance until their wedding day. [Channel4.com] Keep reading »
