I didn’t cry when I got engaged (in fairness, I was so surprised and excited, I just couldn’t stop laughing), but I got a little teary when Ellen Degeneres announced her plans to marry Portia de Rossi. It’s about time! Keep reading »
A lot happened on last night’s season finale of The Office: Toby had his goodbye party, Michael “fell in love” with his replacement (who happens to be his own female equivalent), but found out his ex, Jan, was pregnant with a sperm donor’s baby, and Andy proposed to Angela just as Jim was about to pop the question to Pam — oh, and Angela and Dwight got busted boning on her desk after hours. Exciting stuff! In this clip, Michael talks to Jim about being in love with the new HR Director. Keep reading »
Seriously, I heart the New Kids, but their performance on The Today Show was a travesty of epic proportions. I mean, they never could sing, but now that they are out of practice, they really, really can’t sing. Especially Jordan. What the hell happened to him? And Joey Mac! I would shed a tear if I wasn’t so mortified for them. Keep reading »
On Showtime’s This American Life, NPR’s Robert Krulwich and his wife tell the same story but disagree on a few key factors, including whether Robert was actually present when his wife had an encounter with Jackie Onassis. Sometimes couples disagreeing can be cute, especially when they’re represented in cartoon form. My favorite part might be when they go from the present to a flashback and lose about 20 pounds off their round behinds. [This American Life via MentalFloss.com] Keep reading »
Oh Woody Allen, you perv. The director’s newest project, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, stars his current muse, Scarlett Johansson, alongside Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. By the looks of the new trailer, the film features much, much hotness, including a kiss between Johansson and Cruz. Let’s hope this movie is actually good. Keep reading »
Ahh, spring. Flowers, pollen, allergies, margaritas, tanning, blockbuster movies, dresses, flip-flops, fornicating…yes, fornicating. Is it true people are hornier in the spring? We sent our lovely Lori out to investigate. Keep reading »
So after the final tribal council is filmed, the Survivor final two join the other castaways at Ponderosa, the location where they all have to hide out until the show is finished and they head home. CBS filmed a lot of the action this season at Ponderosa and posted the footage online. After the final two joined them, Ozzy finally got a chance to makeout with Amanda. A lot. Keep reading »
Rihanna’s new single “Take A Bow” is not a song you’re going to be dancing to — unless you’re in seventh grade and find yourself swaying back and forth awkwardly with a scrawny tween boy. But Rihanna is so lovable and lovely that Nathan and I couldn’t resist watching the song’s video together. We agree that she’s fierce but want different things from her. Me? Well, I want to be her.
Nathan: Why is she looking at her nails?
Catherine: Her nails are too long. Like old lady nails. Keep reading »
I think we all know by now that The Hills is a semi-scripted reality TV show. Yes, the people are real. Yes, the cameras follow them through the course of their real life. But MTV also creates a storyline and manipulates the real life goings on to meet their storyline’s needs. This season, the story centered around “feminist hero” Heidi, as she took time away from her douchebag boyfriend Spencer so she could focus on herself and her career. On last night’s season finale, MTV basically told the viewers that Heidi had a decision to make between two very different choices — focus solely on her career as a event planner for Brent Bolthouse Productions in Las Vegas or go home with Spencer without even giving her boss notice. Guess which she chose?

No, seriously, that’s what Matt, The Bachelor, calls Shayne. Do I suck for thinking that’s kind of cute? Anyway, for once in the entire history of The Bach, I was actually surprised by the finale. Chelsea is the kind of girl who ALWAYS wins this show — the sweet, best friend-type with whom the Bach has a slow build to romance. As much as I was rooting for her, I wasn’t expecting my beloved Shayne to win. But she did! I have no clue whether she and Matt can actually make this relationship last, but I really am kind of psyched Shayne won. She was more than meets the eye that one, which is a lot to expect from the daughter of Lorenzo Lamas. Keep reading »
