Have mercy! 'Full House' band Jesse and the Rippers will reunite on TV Friday

Like many a late ’80s/early ’90s rock band, Jesse and the Rippers faded into obscurity long ago. The group’s original frontman was dishonorably discharged from the band back in 1994 due to “commitment issues.” Though he moved on first by founding a new band called Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, then by managing up-and-coming teen group Girl Talk, he could never quite recapture the spark of his “Forever” days.

Sources say that a 50-something Jesse Katsopolis can still be found in San Francisco, where he lives off his wife’s salary (she’s currently the head of programming at Channel 8 News) while struggling to keep the Smash Club open. Much of the couple’s funds are sucked up by their now-22-year-old twins Nicky and Alex, who have proved utterly unemployable. The whereabouts of the other Rippers have remained unknown… until now.

That’s because Jesse and the Rippers — a.k.a. John Stamos and a bunch of dudes whose names you wouldn’t recognize — are set to reunite this Friday, July 19 on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. People confirmed the news shortly after Stamos posted this mysterious video on his Instagram page:

PopWatch Confessional: I took Chris Harrison's dating site At First Sight for a test drive

I was bouncing around on ye olde Interwebs today when I noticed a tweet from Bachelor Pad enemy No. 1 Chris Bukowski informing the showmance-franchise’s beloved (and super-dreamy) host Chris Harrison that he’s joining Harrison’s new dating app At First Sight. My first thought: Why can’t the (semi-)newly single Harrison himself be the one setting up a profile?* My second thought: I gotta see this thing in action!

Keep reading as I take At First Sight for a spin — and send a gentle nudge to a few other celebs I’d like to join me in my “journey” to love online.

'Sharknado': Another Syfy disaster film gone horribly right

We’ve I’ve seen it all—Dinoshark, SharktopusMega Shark Versus Crocosaurus, Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus. But to all Syfy television leeches’ delights, The Asylum managed to plug new variables into its inexplicably successful science-fiction-monster-attack formula. Thursday’s premiere was simply disaster times three: a natural disaster, an oceanic creature capable of disaster, and a Hollywood disaster (but you’ll always hold a special place in our hearts, Tara Reid).

SPOILERS AHOY!

There Should Be a Sequel: 'Troop Beverly Hills'

Cigars… vapes… cookies…

I really wouldn’t mind a sequel to the 1989 Shelley Long vehicle Troop Beverly Hills. The most cherished movie of my childhood is no cinematic masterpiece, so this would hardly be sacrilege. I figure if this is really gonna be the film most often running through my head like a skunk on a misdirected trail (oh, the shame!), the story may as well continue. So sack up, hobos, and pour some wine into that stew: It’s cookie time. Again.

'The Bachelorette' episode 6: 'If James gets a rose tonight, I think the group is going to collectively s--- themselves'

Well, that would almost be worth tuning in for, wouldn’t it rose lovers? But (and spoiler alert if you haven’t yet watched) Michael’s dire prediction did not come to pass, thankfully. It was still a rather dramatic evening, though, as accusations were made and denied (repeatedly), tears were shed (and not just by Des), and cameras were forced to chase the Bachelorette and her date down a secluded alley in Barcelona where Drew had dragged Des for a “private” make-out session. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight — where, by the way, I will be griping excessively about one particularly painful cut Des made at the rose ceremony — and in the meantime let me know how you’re feeling after tonight’s leg of Desiree’s “journey.” Did she send the right guys home? Will Zak ever stop taking his clothes off? And at this point are there any imperfect places to fall in love left on earth? Post your thoughts now!

Middle-aged beauty queens compete in TLC's 'Crown Chasers,' see their gowns -- EXCLUSIVE

Step aside Toddlers & Tiaras, there’s a new crop of (middle-aged) contestants threatening your reign.

On July 10, TLC will unveil Crown Chasers, a reality special set in the pageant world that will follow five women aged between 30 to 50 as they vie for the title of Mrs. Colorado Golden Queen. The contestants might be much older than their T&T counterparts, but rest assured they manage to throw just as many tantrums. Expect to see a whole lot of name-calling, backbiting, and bickering about very dramatic things like getting de-friended on Facebook. And of course, quite a few garish gowns.

Check out an exclusive sneak peek of some of the ladies, including contender Jocelyn Morrow above, in their evening wear gowns, and then hit the comments to let us know if you plan to tune in to watch the show. READ FULL STORY

Paula Deen on 'Dancing With the Stars'? Ugh, no.

Rumor has it that as Paula Deen gets phased out by an unforgiving real-life America, she could have a place in alternate-universe America on Planet Mirrorballus. Dancing With the Stars has approached her before, and considering the show’s magnetism for controversial “stars” like Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin, the Twinkie Pie pariah could be a perfect fit for the ballroom.

Would I want this polar opposite of a hidden gem to join the show? READ FULL STORY

Backstreet Boys prove that without them, you're still 'Incomplete' with a hilarious 'Late Show' appearance

Quit playing games with my heart, Backstreet Boys!

The Boys stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday night to participate in the Top 10 segment — and if you ever belted out “Larger Than Life” with an assist from a hairbrush, you’re going to be seriously charmed. How did it take us so long to highlight this video? It’s completely unmissable: The boys’ category is “Top 10 Backstreet Boy Lyrics,” but this time around, the words are a bit more risque than your junior-high self probably remembers. (“Am I sexual? Yeah-ah” still takes the cake, however.) These guys touch on everything: Men’s Wearhouse, Justin Bieber’s monkey, the NSA — all with their signature, swoon-worthy five-part harmony.

I don’t care who you are or where you’re from, you must watch below: READ FULL STORY

A look back at Channing Tatum in 'She's the Man'

Congratulations are in order for Channing Tatum. He’s got his likely summer blockbuster, White House Down, opening today; he’s been killing it on the press front (Channing all over your Tatum is now a real-life phrase. Congratulations!) and I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a kid more than watching him adorably dance with co-star Joey King on Good Morning America. But he wasn’t always such an A-list stud (Or, more accurately, A-list; he was always a stud). Back in 2006, Tatum was best known for a little teen comedy called She’s the Man.

She’s the Man is, 100 percent unironically, one of my all-time favorite movies. I’m not saying it should have won an Oscar, but when it comes to a film I can watch over and over again, Amanda Bynes dressing up as a dude to prove that ladies are just as good at soccer as the boys, muttering weird catchphrases while her hot roommate/crush Duke (Tatum) parades around in a white tank top while school president David Cross — surely collecting a paycheck! —  makes everyone uncomfortable is a romp that can even find the laugh lines in systemic gender inequality. Plus, the whole thing is based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Highbrow!

I’m bringing this movie up today because it’s where the White House Down star got his leading-role start (He’d previously had small parts in things like Coach Carter and  Havoc). He may now have successfully moved on to bigger things, but I’ll never forget the sensitive hunk who fell in love with his roommate. Below, five incredible Tatum-specific moments from She’s the Man (and yes, many of them are shirtless). A star is born!
