‘Dancing With the Stars’ recap: Four Score and Several Tears (May 14, 2012)
I’m so glad that I am not the only one who hated that jive. It wasn’t a jive at all. Even my husband looked up from his crossword puzzle (he likes to pretend he doesn’t like to watch the show) and said what dance are they supposed to be doing. I told him the jive and he asked “isn’t the jive supposed to be a fast dance?” If anyone but Derek had performed that dance they would’ve been crucified by the judges.
Channing Tatum on ‘Magic Mike’ manscaping, plus exclusive video from our cover shoot (May 17, 2012)
This is the hottest thing I’ve ever read.
I hope they have an alternate cover for this week. That mail lady is gonna start looking at me all weird.

I thought for sure we were going to see Aubrey’s unpixilized breasts.

Break me off a piece of Arrow please.

Conan rehashes ‘Tonight Show’ ‘mix-up’; Letterman calls Leno ‘a bit of a brat’ (May 18, 2012)
Good grief, these two need to LET IT GO and MOVE ON! It took me less time to get over my divorce!
‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ trailer: Kanye Kardashian? (May 17, 2012)
Franich, I usually hate Kardashian coverage but your Kardashian posts are always 100% hysterically funny. I hope you “recap” this season of Kardashian awfulness. I don’t even watch the show, i just read your stuff about it and am 10000% more entertained by you than I would ever be by the Kardashians.
“…while tracking the tale of an attractive alien girl-robot who falls into an arranged marriage with a basketball player named Frankenstein. Eventually, the girl-robot leaves her husband for a dashing young shoemaker named Kanye”
Darren responds: I don’t think I can recap another season of the Kardashians without going insane. My brain barely survived last season of “Kourtney & Kim-Kim Kannibalize Kroatia.” However, my editors don’t care about my sanity, so stay tuned for further developments.
What is the cast of ‘The Avengers’ really worth? (May 16, 2012)
by Adam B. Vary
Considering we probably wouldn’t have gotten an Avengers movie if Iron Man hadn’t done so well, I say Robert Downey Jr is worth every penny. Not all superhero movies succeed, and he took a chance on a potentially questionable one. Plus be obviously made some smart business decisions along the way.
If anything, Joss Whedon and the special effects might be worth the most of all!
Joss Whedon? PLEASE!!! The Wachowski’s… no ANYONE could’ve directed this movie. If Woody Allen would learn to film an action sequence HE could’ve followed the recipe on this one. Two parts Iron Man, one part Thor, one part Captain America. A pinch of Hulk. A dash of Hawkeye, splash of Fury, season to taste with Black Widow (thank you ScarJo’s boobs) bake under CGI for 2 and a half hours and BOOM! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the Avengers. I’ve seen it eight times already but I wouldn’t give Whedon too much credit.
Kim Kardashian’s brilliant IMDB bio: ‘Kim Kardashian is emblematic of the shallowness of American culture’ (May 15, 2012)
KK is the black hole of loss of morality in USA. When people like KK roam the earth, it means that the end days are here. She is the modern day equivalent of Sodom and Gomorrah.
This is the happiest I’ve seen the commenters on the Kardashian clan stories..
‘Missing’ series finale: How it ended (Sean Bean lives!) (May 18, 2012)
by Mandi Bierly
I didn’t watch this show, but hooray for Sean Bean finally living through something!
Skechers Shape-ups won’t make you look like Kim Kardashian after all (May 17, 2012)
Why would I want a pair of shoes “to look like Kim”, I’d BURN the damned things.
If you’re so hot that you don’t need to settle for looking like Kim, call me maybe?
Tyra Banks takes a stand against too-thin models — VIDEO (May 17, 2012)
Tyra also took the time during this interview to introduce one of her ”hip” new words, ”flawsome”, combining the words ”floss” and ”awesome”. Isn’t she so very clever??? Tyra please go somewhere, sit your corny behind down, and shut up. Thanks!
