The Must List: May 30, 2008
1. MADE OF HONOR
Yes, Patrick Dempsey’s movie sounds a lot like My Best Friend’s Wedding. But now that Grey’s Anatomy has hung up its scrubs for the season, how else will you get your McDreamy fix?
2. THE BACHELORETTE
DeAnna Pappas may have been rejected twice by season 11 Bachelor Brad Womack, but we won’t spurn the weepy Southern belle — we’re already hooked on the ABC reality series.
3. OFFICE MAYHEM, by Juliette Cezzar
Embrace your inner Jim Halpert and learn how to prank your office mates, courtesy of this handy cubicle survival guide.
4. ANGRY ON-CAMERA MELTDOWNS
See Bill O’Reilly and other TV personalities throw bleep-free, profanity-laced tantrums on the air. (youtube.com/watch?v=t-dnhztjLdY)
5. ‘SHORT CIRCUIT’ on DVD
Number Five is alive…and he looks good 22 years later! Ally Sheedy and the straight-talking, pancake-making robot get the special-edition DVD treatment.
6. ”LEAVIN’,” Jesse McCartney
Remember — everyone used to laugh at Justin Timberlake, too. Just sayin’.
7. AUDITION, by Barbara Walters
Flirtations, affairs, adultery — oh, my! Never have we been so interested in a 76-year-old’s sex life. It’s all detailed in the newswoman’s memoir.
8. THE REAL WORLD: HOLLYWOOD
Six weeks into the MTV show’s scandalous 20th season, one houseguest has been shipped off to rehab while another nearly got arrested. There hasn’t been this much drama since, well, season 19.
9. SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE
If you’re going through Dancing With the Stars withdrawal, kick up your heels with Fox’s toe-tapping series. We give it a Mary Murphy scream of approval.
Cruise tries to retool his image with an official (self-congratulatory) website. The verdict? We’re still laughing.
