TLC is branching out from its typical fare (“Jon & Kate Plus 8,” “17 Kids and Counting,” “Trading Spaces,” etc.) with a show that’s still family oriented, but a little more on the sexy side. With “Mother Knows Sex,” the channel will follow Patty Brisben, a Midwestern housewife, churchgoer, and mother of four, as she and her family run their business. Brisben and Co. have made millions from Pure Romance, a company that sells sex toys at Tupperware party-like gatherings at people’s homes. How does a family that works together in the sex industry get along? What is it like to discuss dildos with your mother? We’ll find out when “Mother Knows Sex” debuts Feb. 1 at 10pm EST.

Originally, I was a little bit mocking of the fact that Beyonce got the honor of singing the song for President and First Lady Obama’s first dance at the Inaugural Ball last night — but that woman brought it. Above, the first couple dances to Etta James’ “At Last” and Barack even throws in a twirl or two. Amazing. Keep reading »
As Patrick Swayze courageously battles cancer, his legendary spirit has lifted lots of Americans…literally. Thanks to the “Dirty Dancing” Lift Machine, lucky fans have been getting “Baby”-ed. Over two decades after Swayze splashed around with Jennifer Grey, making every girl swoon with jealousy, regular folks have experienced the “Time Of Their Life” and completed the glorious dance move immortalized in the final dance of the flick. While the machine won’t accidentally drop you in the water during practice like Swayze, we’re already wet from the idea of this romantic gesture, albeit mechanical.

Every time I’m wearing a short dress and getting out of a cab, I have to focus on how to exit the car gracefully without exposing my own so adorable Forever 21 undies. The video about will help, but something tells me Britney, Lindsay, and Paris need it way, way more. Keep reading »
The thing is, I think Ann Coulter does survive on hate fumes… Keep reading »
Remember when we told you that Joaquin Phoenix was giving up acting to pursue a music career? We assumed he was going to do something within the rock genre, considering his success playing Johnny Cash — but by the looks of his first performance, he’s into hip-hop instead. “After all the years of reading scripts and reading lines, this is my chance to do something straight from the heart and put it out there,” he told People. “When I was young I liked punk rock music but then I discovered rap. I love the storytelling aspect of hip-hop.” I’m not sure the storytelling of hip-hop likes him, however…clip above! Keep reading »

Amelia and I both watched all four hours of “American Idol” Tuesday and Wednesday. It was a lot to handle, especially because they show so many terrible people and the judges are cruel to them, but we had to see whether there are any crush-worthy contestants. While he doesn’t compare to Josiah Leming from last season, Anoop Desai, a 21-year-old grad student from Chapel Hill, NC, is kind of charming in a geeky way. However, word on the street is that he doesn’t make into the top 50. We’ll be sussing out the cute-Idol situation again once the contestants get narrowed down next week. Keep reading »
