'The Bachelor: The Women Tell All': 'He didn't say Camila whenever he was in the ocean'

No he did not, Kelly. And that statement is why we have missed you around these parts. Well, that statement and your adorably random canine companion, Molly, who seems to be the best-behaved pup ever on television (though maybe not in the blooper reel).

Moving along, this year’s Women Tell All was a pretty decent mix of “sour grapes” — looking at you, Victoria — and the women who genuinely felt like they got to know Juan Pabs and therefore should defend him. Add in just a dash of lingering sexual tension between Sharleen and the man she left behind, and you can imagine what went down. And let’s not forget Kelly calling Juan Pablo out for his gay comments. Let’s just say, Sharleen put that fire out like it was her first kiss with Juan Pablo. So what did you think? Share your thoughts on the episode, and stay tuned later tonight for my full Bachelor: The Women Tell All recap, as well as Chris Harrison’s take on things.

'The Bachelor' overnight dates: 'I want to die if I have to hear 'It's okay' again!'

Cheer up, little “lady.” We all want to die sometimes. (For me it’s when I’m trying to get into a crowded F train and everyone’s pretending the car is full even though there’s clearly room in the middle but no one will step the eff in!!! Okay, rant over.) Anyhow, tonight’s Fantasy Suite extravaganza featured everything you expected — handwritten cards from a PA Chris Harrison inviting Nikki, Andi, and Clare to “forgo your individual rooms”; hot tub make-out sessions; and lots and lots of candles. But there was one surprise this evening: On Andi’s overnight date Juan Pablo did something so heinous, so reprehensible, so, so… selfish that she was forced to confront him before the rose ceremony. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over for Kristen’s full Bachelor overnight dates recap and Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes blog), but if you’ve seen the episode let me know your thoughts about the “shocking” “turn” of “events.”

'The Bachelor' hometown dates: 'I saw the sense of disapproval on my dad's face within the first five minutes'

Hometown dates can be rough, right rose lovers? I will say that the dad referenced above was my absolute favorite of the night. (Anytime a parent recognizes and addresses on camera the absurdity of the situation his/her child is in, I want that parent to win a medal and possibly a cash prize.) My full recap will be up later tonight, but in the meantime let me know what you thought of tonight’s four hometown visits. Who’s scarier — Clare’s sister or Ashley’s sister? How is it possible that Nikki’s parents are so nice, when she is so… not nice? How much did your heart break watching Renee’s reunion with her little boy Ben? Post your thoughts now! One programming note: Chris Harrison will be weighing in on both the hometown dates and exotic dates in one epic blog post tomorrow… so stay tuned for a massive hit of awesomeness.

Olympics recap: Ice Dancing With the Stars

By the power of high-speed lifts, a close hold, love from their moms, and quite possibly Disney movie mind-control, Princess Jasmine and Wiladdin Wonka a.k.a. Meryl Davis and Charlie White have become the first U.S. Olympic champions in Ice Dancing. Their training companions, the Vancouver gold medalists and non-Disney characters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada, settled for silver. And Russian youth sorcerers Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov took the bronze after Monday’s finals in the Iceberg Skating Palace — indisputably the Planet Mirrorballus of Sochi, Russia.

Davis and White earned a score so high, it hadn’t even been invented yet. Never before could Ice Dancing have conceived of a 195.52. It’s a totally new number. Was the competition fixed? Sure, maybe. I am no ice dancing expert. But I do know Tessa Virtue could have easily fixed her damn bun: READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' episode 7: 'Let's f---ing wrap this s--- up and go home!'

Oh, if only we could, rose lovers. But we’ve got several more weeks left of Juan Pablo’s “adventure” — and it’s clearly proving to be more than some of the “ladies” can take. Stay tuned for my full recap later this evening (UPDATE: Click over to Kristen’s full Bachelor episode 7 recap and Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes Bachelor blog), but if you’ve seen tonight’s episode, let me know what you thought of the surprise (though was it really?) departure of one of Juan Pablo’s favorites. Was it the right call, or did she — much like Gob Bluth — make a huge mistake? Also (mild spoiler alert) were you as shocked as I was to see Juan Pablo introduce his daughter Cameeeeeela to one of the women so soon? (For some reason I insist on hoping that the people who appear on this show will exercise good judgment, and every single season I’m disappointed.) Finally, which is a better comeback: “Do you sleep here?” or “Did you pay for it?” Tough call! Post your thoughts now.

James Franco has a Valentine's Day card for you

James-Franco-Instagram.jpg

Most cheesy Valentine’s Day cards featuring a celebrity or movie character are made by people impressed with how they can force movie phrases into pickup lines. (Here’s looking at you, Bellatrix Lestrange.)

Today, James Franco took out the middle man and made his own corny/sleazy card, uploading the above photo to Instagram alongside the message, “I’m down for 127 hours with you, girrrrrrrllllllll (boyyyyyyyeeeee).”

Never forget: James Franco was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for 127 Hours. Also never forget: He hosted the Oscars that year, something he would probably like you to forget.

While I appreciate that Franco doesn’t discriminate in his V-Day lovin’, I can’t help but wonder: Is 127 Hours really the best film of his for sex puns? He cuts off his own arm at the end of that movie! No thank you. Surely there are better Valentine’s Day messages based off Franco movie titles. Just off the top of my head, James, we’ve got: READ FULL STORY

Google celebrates Valentine's Day with help from 'This American Life'

Google-Doodle.jpg

Google’s Charm Offensive is strong on Anna Howard Shaw Day Valentine’s Day.

Today’s homepage Doodle (in the United States, at least) is decked out in candy hearts — you know, the kind you gave to your crush (and everyone else in the class) when you were 8.

Click on any of the hearts, and you get to hear one of six short ‘n sweet stories from real-life lovebirds describing how they fell in love. The snippets come from public radio’s This American Life. They hit a bunch of different tones, but the funny ones may be the best. Take “Crush,” for example, in which a teenage girl declares:  “This one time I sneezed … and he goes, ‘You know, you have a really cute sneeze.’ … I was all day on that sneeze comment. I must have told every one of my friends.”

Love is a battlefield. Break out some chocolates and give all the stories a listen on Google’s homepage.

What WON'T Meat Loaf do for love? Now we know! -- VIDEO

Who really shot JFK? What happened at Area 51? Where do ships go in the Bermuda Triangle? These are all great mysteries of the world that you will never have the answers to — unless you’re Nic Cage in The Rock and you get a hold of some microfilm full of state secrets.

Until today, we all assumed “What won’t Meatloaf do for love?” was another one of those gaping holes in public knowledge, nagging at you as you fall asleep at night. What did Meat Loaf mean when he sang, “I’ll do anything for love, but I won’t do that?” I mean, other than the obvious that. The that that no one would do for love? That. Well, today, friends you are Nic Cage and this big secret has been painstakingly discovered by Ali Wentworth on Yahoo’s Daily Shot. Natch.

Throwback Thursday: Lindsay Lohan covers 'Edge of Seventeen' and reminds us all of 2005

Just like the white winged dove sings a song just like she’s singing, so does Lindsay Lohan.

It’s easy to forget that once upon a time, Lindsay Lohan was not only an actress but also a singer — not only belting pop tunes in her family-friendly movies (“Ultimate” was really fun!), but also releasing two albums that gave us such songs as “Rumors” and the sob-fest “Confessions of A Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” (Ugh. That video is still a knife through the heart.)

But often forgotten among those is a cover of the Stevie Nicks classic slow burner “Edge of Seventeen,” which Lohan recorded as part of her 2005 album A Little More Personal (Raw).  Happily, as of today, it’s forgotten no more! Lohan performed a karaoke version of the the song this week in New York City. TMZ  — which got the footage, naturally – reports the impromptu show was for a birthday party. (For New York Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon, of all people.)

The video isn’t the best quality, but Lohan looks happy and sounds pretty good — which, given her history as the human embodiment of exhaustion,we’ll count as an entry in the ‘Win’ column. Is she testing the waters for a new album, perhaps? Or maybe we’ll be treated to a musical performance or two on Lohan’s upcoming OWN reality show, which premieres next month.

Check out the karaoke footage below: READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' episode 6: 'I like a man in pink'

Well who doesn’t, right rose lovers? I also like a man who doesn’t think that throwing sheep poop is a proper date activity, but we can’t always get what we want. Confused? Then you probably haven’t watched tonight’s episode, in which Juan Pablo takes the “ladies” to New Zealand, where mild drama (and poop-throwing) ensues. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click for Kristen’s full Bachelor episode 6 recap and Chris Harrison’s Bachelor blog), but if you’ve just finished watching this leg of Juan Pabs’ “adventure,” I need to know what you think about the following things: Kat’s truly heartbreaking story about her earliest memory; Andi’s very waterlogged one-on-one date; Ogos; Sharleen’s cry face; and that whole group date poop-throwing situation. Also, be sure to place your bets now on who would win in a catfight: Nikki or Clare.
