Michelle Obama talks exercise regimen and does push-ups during 'Ellen' visit, puts us all to shame

After watching the clip of First Lady Michelle Obama impressively doing push-ups during her visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show without so much as breaking a sweat, I’m starting to think we may have to add one more totally awesome woman to this gallery. Somehow unfazed by Mrs. Obama’s enviable arms and her admission that she works out as early as 5:30 in the morning and for as long as an hour-and-a-half every day, host Ellen DeGeneres still challenged the First Lady to a push-up contest. Check out the full clip below to see who won. And then drop and give me 25. (Comments, of course! Twenty-five comments.)

Ryan Kwanten's upcoming appearance on 'New Girl' -- PHOTOS

Who’s that boy? (Who’s that boy?) It’s Ryan Kwanten! Of course, that’s no surprise to fans of New Girl that the True Blood star is stopping by the show, as it was announced last month that the Aussie actor would be making a guest appearance. Kwanten will play a handsome fellow (naturally) named Oliver that Zooey Deschanel‘s Jess wants to have a one-night stand with, despite the fact that they have nothing in common.  (Power through it, Jess!)

Earlier this week, photos were released from Kwanten’s episode and while we still have to wait until Feb. 14 to watch the Valentine’s Day-themed ep, here’s what we gathered from these sneak peek photos:

Jess has once again used her adorkable powers (read: giant-scared baby eyes) to bag a hottie. But, a deep v?! What would Cece think?

Channing Tatum practices saying his name in 'Saturday Night Live' promo -- VIDEO

Considering he’s starring in no less than five movies this year alone (Haywire, The Vow, 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) you’ve got to wonder if there’s anything Channing Tatum can’t — or won’t — do at this point. (Well, aside from beating Gina Carano in a brawl. Though to be fair, no one can do that.)

While the increasingly busy star (is he the male answer to Jessica Chastain?) is adding first-time Saturday Night Live host to his resume this weekend, the handsome every(where)man revealed he is actually incapable of some things in his SNL promo. Turns out, Tatum can’t imitate the Dirty Dancing lift quite as perfectly as Ryan Gosling did in Crazy, Stupid, Love. and even he has trouble pronouncing his name. (He can, however, say Bon Iver correctly. Respect.) Watch the spot with Choo-Choo Something and Fred Armisen below:

Jes! Sofia Vergara tops AskMen's Most Desirable Women of 2012 list

Modern Family stunner Sofia Vergara jumped from No. 3 to the coveted No. 1 spot on AskMen.com’s annual Most Desirable Women list, which can only mean one thing: Men really, really, really desire…The Smurfs. Yep, that’s precisely what it is. Smurfs. Vergara’s Modern Family costar Eric Stonestreet reacted to the news on Twitter by posting a photo of himself with the MDW alongside Jesse Tyler Ferguson with the tweet, “If @SofiaVergara is the most desirable women in the world, then @jessetylerand I win.”  Vergara herself  told the website, “I am so honored to be AskMen’s most desired woman this year. A big thank you to all the men who desire me.” But let’s all pretend Gloria responded to the news, which probably would have sounded a little something like this, “!!!!!!??????!!!!!”

'The Voice' to feature Prince medley: Which songs should the four mentors sing?

It’s been a little over six months since The Voice unleashed the radio beast that is “Moves Like Jagger,” and yet we’re still tapping our toes to the infuriatingly irritating beat of the summer ( …and fall …and winter) hit. So I have high expectations for season 2′s musical follow-up, which may come in the form of a Prince medley.

People reports that Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine — otherwise known as The Voice‘s chair-spinning mentors — will be singing a string of hits from the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince on the reality series’ second night back.

'Bachelor': The skinny-dipping isn't the only thing upsetting me

Last night’s episode of The Bachelor was controversial because Courtney broke ranks and sought Ben out on another girl’s date night to make good on her earlier proposal that they go skinny-dipping. When I asked Ben about that decision before the season began, having just seen it teased in a promo, he said he compartmentalized his relationships with the women and didn’t compare them. “So if more women wanted to go skinny-dipping with me, they should have asked… and I would have gone,” he laughed. “Those are things you do when you’re trying to get to know someone and you get in a relationship.”

I laughed, too, because I didn’t know how foolish Courtney would make the other women — who seem to show each other more respect than she does — look. Some fans are coming down on Ben for agreeing to go skinny-dipping with Courtney when that many women were left. If it had happened on a sanctioned date, I wouldn’t have had a problem with it. (I mean, other than the fact that Courtney appears to be manipulating him so she can keep saying “Winning!”) I’m just as disappointed in ABC for running all those promos that made it look like the women either saw it happening or found out about it right away. A rep for the network says neither it nor the ladies can comment on when the other women catch wind of it. We’ll just have to tune in. (At the very least, it will certainly make the Women Tell All interesting now that they’ve definitely seen it.)  READ FULL STORY

Want to see Kristen Bell lose her mind over a sloth? Oh yes, you do. You really, really do.

Celebrities, they’re just like us!  I mean… doesn’t everyone totally lose their mind when presented with a sloth on their birthday?

Today the lovely Kristen Bell appears on Ellen and tells the story of her 31st birthday present from her boyfriend, Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard. The Veronica Mars actress apparently has always had sort of a thing for the furry folivores, and when she heard that Shepard had a surprise for her, she said she knew that it just had to involve a sloth. “I didn’t know how to process that … my entire life has been waiting for this moment, waiting to interact with a sloth,” she says.

Paul Brittain's best 'Saturday Night Live' moments -- VIDEO

Let it out, Paul Brittain fans. EW broke the news: After spending a little over a year with Saturday Night Live, the featured player has exited the show “to pursue other projects.” Effective immediately, the cast member will no longer appear in any new episodes, which means you definitely won’t see this week’s host Channing Tatum interact with the wonderfully weird Lord Cecil Wyndemere. Thankfully, everyone’s favorite displaced Lord got in one final appearance during the Charles Barkley episode (pictured). Watch the moment below in which Brittain’s tiny, whimsical Wyndemere made the NBA giant break: READ FULL STORY

Stephen Colbert gains back control of his Super PAC from Jon Stewart, raises over $1 million

“The PAC is back, baby!” After regaining control of his Super PAC from the clutches of Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report host and current President of Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Stephen Colbert, announced on the Super PAC’s website that as of Tuesday morning, the Colbert Nation “has brought in a staggering $1,023,121.24.” (“My accountant explains to me that is a number far above ‘one,’ ‘two,’ ‘five,’ or even ‘many,’” Colbert noted in the statement.)
