The 1989 Shelley Long luxury vehicle Troop Beverly Hills turns 25 today, which means 1) You’re even older than you thought, and 2) It’s high time Phyllis Nefler — troop leader to us all — receives the (likely waist-cinching) sash of Wilderness Girl patches she has always deserved. Join me on this stroll down memory lane before those stinkin’ Red Feathers swarm in like poisonous water moccasins and corrupt the route!

The Glee kids hit the big 100th episode milestone this week, which means it’s time for a look back. Remember when Rachel thought she was pregnant? Remember when Brittany had a web series titled Fondue for Two? Remember when there was a shooting at McKinley? NEVER FORGET.
Even a casual viewer of the show knows this musical dramedy goes through plot faster than the Glee kids go through crushes on each other. We don’t know what’s in store for the McKinley kids as they all become Broadway stars in New York (RIP, Smash!), but we do know there’s very little the show hasn’t already explored.
Below, test your memory about all the crazy things that have happened at one point or another — and see if you can spot the few things that never actually took place. Good luck!

By now, we all know about Shailene Woodley’s quirky, environmentally-friendly tendencies — she gathers her water from fresh springs when she can; she brought Jimmy Fallon a bag of herbs last week on The Tonight Show. But that’s only the beginning.
Woodley is more magical nymph than Hollywood starlet; even Jennifer Lawrence’s relatable clumsiness can’t hold a candle to Shailene’s lovable kookiness. So after reading the Divergent star’s latest awesome interview, we decided to compile the Shailene-iest quotes she’s ever given. Check out what the offbeat actress has said about eating clay (yes, for real) and giving up Instagram below:
This is worse than wearing sweatpants: Mean Girls isn’t getting a Tina Fey-penned sequel!
Despite some hopeful speculation from fans recently, Fey confirmed the news to Extra on Wednesday, saying, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.” (Mean Girls 2, the 2011 TV movie sequel with a whole new group of girls, is best not mentioned.)
Like any good twenty-something, I love the movie, but the “no sequel” news is totally for the best. There’s no way people wouldn’t be disappointed by whatever they came up with, and now, fans can just continue to watch and love the original as the perfect high school satire that it is. For those that would like a little more, all hope isn’t lost: Fey is directing her energy towards a possible Mean Girls musical (which she told EW about last year in her EW Interview).
Since Fey has made it clear we aren’t going to get Regina and Gretchen’s High School Reunion, just for fun I went ahead and pictured where the whole fetch gang is now, 10 years post-high school. READ FULL STORY
Oh man, rose lovers. I mean, where to begin? So… many… thinks… about Juan Pablo’s “adventure” and his “decision” between the two “ladies”… But I don’t want to get ahead of myself here. We’ve still got a whole After the Final Rose to get through, which will no doubt include lots of tears and tension — and, of course, the reveal of the next Bachelorette! (Please let it be Molly….) Stay tuned for my full recap of the finale and ATFR later tonight, but if you’re still reeling from what went down at the Proposal Platform and need a safe space to vent, hit the comments section below.
Are you ready to get your head back in the game?
Zac Efron might be. Over the weekend, a reporter for E! asked the actor if he would ever return to the sacred (?) halls of East High — home of Disney’s High School Musical franchise. And instead of shooting down the rumors, Efron replied, “We’re all thinking about it. I continue to see all the guys from High School. Every time we do…there’s just this look between us.”
Right off the bat, I’ll acknowledge that while this isn’t a “no,” it’s also not confirmation of a reunion. But also: At this point, would a reunion be the worst idea? It’s not exactly surprising that Efron may be in, even though a year or two ago he wanted to graduate from East High for good. (UPDATE: When EW asked Disney Channel for a response to Efron’s comments, they sent this statement: “Everyone at Disney Channel takes pride in knowing that our wonderful ‘High School Musical’ cast has fond memories about their days as ‘Wildcats,’ and that each year, new audiences are introduced to the movies through our telecasts around the world, but we have no ‘new news’ to report.”)
If Efron did decide to return and give us “Scream Pt. 2,” it’s easy to see the rest of the cast following suit. They wouldn’t even have to carry a full movie: For a long time, Disney was developing a fourth High School Musical for TV. (And no, I’m not talking about SNL‘s High School Musical: New Senior Class.) The movie, called High School Musical: East Meets West, supposedly would have starred a new cast, and would have told a West Side Story-esque story about East and West High. (Real talk: What was Troy and Gabrielle’s love if not a millennial, significantly less high-stakes version of Maria and Tony?) The project keeps getting pushed back, but it hasn’t been canceled — Disney just put out Teen Beach Movie instead. But what if it got revved up again — and the original HSM gang came back for a little alumni number? (Efron has long said he would consider doing something like that.) READ FULL STORY
Cheer up, Lupita Nyong’o — at least your embarrassing “before they were famous” video is coming out after you won your Oscar.
Prior to capturing our hearts in 12 Years a Slave, Nyong’o starred as Ayira in the 2009 raunchy MTV Kenyan soap Shuga. The soap was actually a hit and was broadcast across 40 African countries. In addition to the typical relationship drama one might expect, the show also tried to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS. It went on to win a Gold award in May 2010 at the World Media Festival in Hamburg, Germany, in the Public Relations Health category.
Watch a trailer — which heavily features a young Nyong’o before she became a fashion icon — below: READ FULL STORY
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.
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.
