'Better Call Saul' has a real-life billboard, working phone number

Fans expect a lot from Better Call Saul. Since the show takes place before, during, and after Breaking Bad, it’s got countless opportunities to showcase familiar faces (beyond Mike, who’s a series regular). Then there’s the smaller stuff: We want to see Saul with ridiculous hair, a bluetooth in his ear, and maybe a questionable massage appointment every once in a while. But as it turns out, Saul diehards have already gotten one of their wishes: the billboard. READ FULL STORY

A gif guide to Aviva's leg-gendary 'Real Housewives of New York' finale flip-out

It was the moment to which the Real Housewives of New York had been walking up all season: A prosthetic leg abandoned on a floor, a room aghast.

On Tuesday’s RHONY finale, cast member Aviva Drescher—who lost half of her left leg in a childhood accident—found herself under fire for allegedly faking illness to flake on group vacations, being too dependent on her husband, and possibly suffering from Münchausen syndrome. Outnumbered five to one, Aviva could barely get in a word edgewise (which says a lot when you’re the cousin of Fran Drescher).

So the Leggy Blonde did this:

Video: 'The Divide' star Marin Ireland shares your love of 'Soapdish'

Marin-Ireland.jpg

Those who watched last week’s twisty premiere of WEtv’s new scripted drama, The Divide, know that Innocence Initiative case worker Christina (Homeland‘s Marin Ireland) is full of surprises—for example, she drives around Philly singing along to Mos Def’s “Quiet Dog.”

“That was [writer/co-creator] Richard LaGravenese’s pick. He just had a feeling that that is exactly the kind of music she would listen to. Of course it’s like the fastest song in the world. They were like, ‘Can you just learn all the lyrics to this song? We don’t know what part we’re gonna use yet.’ So I was about, for two weeks, walking around Toronto rapping,” says Ireland, who made her own playlist to get into character (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wu-Tang Clan, and Eminem). “When we shot the scene, I had it playing in my ear, so there was all these guys standing around, and they can’t hear the track, they just hear me going, ‘Simmer down, simmer down, simmer down.’ [Co-creator/director] Tony Goldwyn calls ‘Cut,’ and they all just burst out laughing, and he’s like, ‘Let’s do that again!’ They went five or six times just to make a fool out of me, which was adorable.”

With the season already wrapped, Ireland promises some kind of resolution to the case of who really murdered the Butler family years ago. Having lost the battle to save the death row inmate convicted of the crime in the premiere, Christina has set her sights on helping his alleged accomplice, Terry Kucik (Joe Anderson), who’s serving life and has long claimed his DNA was found on the teen daughter because they were in a hidden relationship.

While fans wait to see how the drama unfolds—did I mention Christina’s father is also on death row for a crime she believes he didn’t commit?—Ireland was happy to lighten things up by taking EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test.  READ FULL STORY

You can't donate to Jon Stewart's CNN Kickstarter, but you can laugh at it

Lets-Buy-CNN.jpg

Bad news, everybody: Jon Stewart isn’t actually launching a Kickstarter campaign to buy CNN, despite what last night’s Daily Show might have you thinking.

The joke drive came up during a segment about Rupert Murdoch’s recent bid to purchase Time Warner. If the deal had actually happened—or if it does happen eventually—Time Warner would be forced to sell off its subsidiary CNN, since the news net’s work conflicts with that of News Corp’s own Fox News. (Though fans of both CNN and Fox would probably balk at the comparison.)

But who would buy CNN in this hypothetical situation? That’s where you come in. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All'

Chris-Harrison.jpg

You know the longer I do this show you’d think the less things would surprise me. Not so much. This Men Tell All was easily one of the strangest I’ve ever hosted, but in a really entertaining way. It all started with Ashley and JP, two people I love very much. It wasn’t enough just to catch up with them and find out what’s going on with the pregnancy and their new life together, oh no, we had to raise the bar and do a live ultrasound. When I heard we were going to attempt to pull this off I was a little skeptical, but I loved this moment. As soon as we heard that heartbeat you could really see JP and Ashley’s emotions and feel their love. It was a beautiful thing and I couldn’t be happier that they’re having a boy. I love being able to keep up with our former couples, but to have a moment like this was really fun. Seeing JP get tears in his eyes as he talked about having a son was priceless.

Listen: Kate Hudson shares her favorite 'Overboard' lines and so much more

Kate Hudson stopped by EW Radio’s “Bullseye” hour Tuesday to promote her new movie Wish I Was Here. Hosts Adam Markovitz, Tim Stack, and Tanner Stransky also got her chatting about so much more—dressing like a Game of Thrones Wildling last Halloween, why she gave up playing soccer, her mother Goldie Hawn’s best lines in Overboard, and her 10-year-old son Ryder’s friendship with Danny McBride. Listen to the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

Here's what to do when Walder Frey shows up at a wedding

The essential ingredients for a wedding, as any Game of Thrones fan knows: something old, something new, something borrowed, something definitely not red.

The Red Wedding, technically a celebration of the marriage of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey, is much better known as the site of one of the series’ most bloody massacres. So when Reddit user alip_93, a professional photographer, was hired to snap photos at the wedding of actor David Bradley’s daughter, he knew there would be a photo op with the guy who engineered the deaths of (spoilers) Robb, Catelyn, and many other heroes of the North:

'The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All': 'I had no idea you guys were kissing her so fast!'

Awww, Marquel—don’t feel bad, little buddy! You may have found yourself in the “Friend Zone” with Andi, but the “ladies” in the audience were truly digging your chocolate-chip cookie lapel pin tonight. (If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat—pun intended.) As for the rest of tonight’s Men Tell All? Well, other than that disturbingly TMI segment with Ashley and JP, the “shocking” “revelations” were “few” and “far between.” Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over for Kristen’s full Bachelorette: The Men Tell All recap), but here are a few of my (spoiler-free) highlights: Everyone attacking Andrew for his (alleged) remarks about Marquel and Ron; Andrew attacking JJ; Chris the farmer joining Andrew in his attack on JJ; a weird Canadian woman interrupting Harrison’s hot-seat interview with Chris; and the brilliant opening gag with the scarves. As for the Bachelor in Paradise teaser? I think it may have given me eye herpes. (That is to say, August 4 can’t get here fast enough.)

Watch outtakes from Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien's Tinder bit

Conan-Dave-Franco-Tinder.jpg

Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.
