'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.

Not-famous Shia LaBeouf out-weirds himself at 'Nymphomaniac' premiere

In case you haven’t heard, Shia LaBeouf isn’t famous anymore. And he’s serious about it. Well, as serious as a guy with a bag on his head can be.

At the Berlin premiere of Nymphomaniac, the forthcoming Lars von Trier film which has made headlines because of its explicit content, LaBeouf walked the red carpet sporting a paper bag with the phrase, “I’m not famous anymore” written on it. Neither the bag nor the phrase are anything new for LaBeouf, who has worn the accessory before and used the phrase frequently on his Twitter account in the past weeks.

The stunt comes after the actor walked out of a press conference for the film earlier in the day, per THR.

In all honesty, we think the actor might be onto something; can you wish upon a bag and make it come true?

Throwback Thursday: Check out this amazing 'N Sync fan book

This I promise you: You’ve never seen ‘N Sync like this.

Over the holidays, I discovered a long-buried fan book (above) hidden away at my parents’ house. ‘N Sync: Everything You Didn’t Know About Justin, JC, Lance, Chris & Joey is an unauthorized 1999 book by Devra Newberger Speregen and a treasure trove of “intel” about the early days of the band, “fun” facts you may not have known about the guys, and cheesy pictures and language that remind us all that the late ’90s were a very weird time, indeed.

Nearly every sentence in the goofy book is a winner, starting with the opener: “The music rocks, the band rules, each babe is severely crush-worthy. Is it any wonder ‘N Sync is everything? And now this, too: For your reading ‘n-joyment, an ‘N Sync-lo-pedia of facts, favorites, and fun stuff you never knew.”

Did you know Justin hoped Ross and Rachel would get back together on Friends (!)? What about the fact JC was “bored” during Titanic? Do you remember anything about the group’s road pug, Busta? It’s all included in this fun trip down memory lane, but the best part of the book may be the “bytes”: 100 ‘N Sync facts culled together from online chats with fans, publicist tips, and, honestly, probably just some wishful thinking on the writer’s part. From favorite M&M colors to memorable fan interactions, the book is a preteen dream — One Direction merchandise has nothing on these tidbits.

I’ve dug around a bit, and this book doesn’t seem to exist anywhere online — which is a collective loss for us all. For grown-up Justin Timberlake fans, the whole thing is way too fun not to share. Below, check out a few of the cheesiest revelations — as well as some photos Timberlake and Co. likely wish hadn’t survived Y2K. READ FULL STORY

You go, Lindsay Lohan! Actress posts 'Mean Girls' reunion pic -- PHOTO













Four for you, Lindsay Lohan.

It’s exactly what you wanted, Internet. Mean Girls co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Daniel Franzese (DAMIAN!) met up for dinner this week, and Lohan posted the photographic evidence on Instagram, alongside the message “@whatsupdanny #soquiche #werknyc ❤.” Franzese regrammed the pic, alongside his own message: “Sexy #regram from @lindsaylohan a Classic NYC moment after an amazing dinner at #BodegaNegra You can’t sit with us!”

Franzese: Solid Mean Girls reference. Lohan: Stop trying to make quiche happen. It’s not going to happen.

Ready to feel old? It’s been nearly 10 years (!) since Mean Girls hit theaters and introduced you to two hours of quotes you’re still regularly using in conversation.

We just hope Damian finally got his pink shirt back.

'The Bachelor' episode 5: 'I either live, or I die, or I poop my pants'

Well, one out of three isn’t bad, I suppose. Though I think I can speak for all of us when I say the day some poor girl soils herself during a rappelling date on The Bachelor is the day the Internet can die happy. If you watched tonight’s episode — in which Juan Pablo took the remaining “ladies” to Vietnam for some livestock rides and field work — let me know how you felt about this leg of the Bachelor’s “adventure.” (Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight. UPDATE: It’s live, along with Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes Bachelor blog.) Certainly more drama than we’ve seen so far (I’m looking at you and your “bucket list,” Clare!) and also a bloodier rose ceremony than usual. Who will you miss the most? (Me, I’m just pining for the long lost Accent Table of Doom.) Would you rather have to rappel into a place called “Hell Cave” or wear a silver braided headband for a week? And why does Cassandra think there are no farms in the United States? Post your thoughts now!

Regrets over Ron/Hermione pairing?! An open letter to J.K. Rowling

Dear J.K. Rowling,

Hello. I wish we were speaking under better circumstances, like I was congratulating you on the completion of the long-rumored Marauders prequel, but instead, I’m quite upset with you at the moment.  Your comments over the weekend that you might do things differently when it came to the romantic pairings of the golden trio in Harry Potter ignited a firestorm of fandom wars that had been mostly put to rest over the past few years, as readers went from arguing over who Hermione should wind up with and started caring more about whether Peeta and Katniss were a good match.

You said Ron and Hermione were only together in the books because of “wish fulfillment” on your part, and that it had “very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it.” And you spoke about how you wish you could do things differently. Um, what? You’re dropping this info in 2014? What am I supposed to do with this information NOW? I can’t just ignore it! (Also, I probably owe some Harry/Hermione shippers an apology for calling them delusional from about 2003-2007.) READ FULL STORY

'Life-Size' is getting a 'modern' update. Let's plan it!

Break out that 100-watt smile: Life-Size, the Lindsay Lohan/Tyra Banks-starring television movie, is getting a sequel. Wait, what?

Tyra Banks responded to a question about the reboot on Twitter over the weekend (rumors have been circulating since 2012), writing, “Tis true, Love” and then linking to a Digital Spy article in which she’s quoted as saying, “I have a meeting today to go over the script! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing – it could be late 2014 or 2015. But it will be back – Life-Size will be back, better than ever…I’m under contract with Disney and I can’t talk about it at all, except that it’s coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern – a modern take.” (EW reached out to a rep for Disney, who didn’t return a request for comment.) READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' episode 3: 'Juan Pablo's head was in her crotch for 20 minutes'

Now that I’ve got your attention… well, I’m not really sure what to do with it, seeing as tonight’s episode was actually relatively tame, especially compared to all the drama surrounded Juan Pablo’s careless comments this weekend. That said, this leg of Juan Pablo’s “adventure” did include bikinis, bungee jumping, repeated use of the word “baby,” and a soccer ball flying at Sharleen’s face. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight, and in the meantime share your thoughts on everything that went down in episode three. Should there be a pool party instead of a cocktail soiree every week? (My vote: YES!) What’s more romantic: Making out behind a concession stand or making out while dangling upside down from a bridge? And will Molly ever get a one-on-one date? Post your thoughts now!

Peter Pan proposes to Wendy...and she says yes! -- VIDEO

It was a fairytale beginning for Sandor Sturbl and Lilly-Jane Young, who currently play Peter Pan and Wendy in Peter Pan: The Never Ending Story, an arena version of the musical currently touring in the U.K. An audience in Glasgow got a bit more than they bargained for from Peter Pan and Wendy.

“We were just about to sing our final song of the night when the music suddenly stopped,” Young told The Daily Record about the performance in Glasgow. “I thought it was a technical hitch and was starting to panic when Sandor turned to the audience and said, ‘Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is usually the moment when Peter Pan gives Wendy a kiss. Lilly-Jane is the love of my life. She’s from Glasgow and performing here means the world to her. That’s why I want to ask her to marry me.’”

Here’s hoping Captain Hook doesn’t crash the wedding. Check out the video — where the bride-to-be gets pretty emotional — below:

Kids give their parents a puppy for Christmas -- 'Lion King'-style: VIDEO

These five siblings took a page out of Disney’s The Lion King to give their parents something special in a very memorable way. The present: An adorable new puppy.

The presentation: A full-scale “Circle of Life” reenactment, complete with interpretive dancing, elephant impersonations, and a recreation of the moment when Rafiki holds Simba up for all of Pride Rock to see. (Though we’re pretty sure the vocalists in the film aren’t actually singing “edamame, penguins and pajamas.”) Check out the home movie below.
