PopWatch Pet Peeve: Subtitles on English-speaking immigrants or just straight-up old people

Dear Reality TV,


Love, Annie

P.S. American Idol, you are just as bad.

Oh and speaking of pets, I think we all know who’s behind this…. READ FULL STORY

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 4 query: How much are you loving Latrice Royale?

Sharon Needles has been dominating RuPaul’s Drag Race in its first three episodes this season, and of course, there are other strong contestants, like Willam and Phi Phi O’Hara and some of the other sundry queens. But last night on the show’s new episode, “Women Behind Bars,” saw a star who was burning somewhat quietly really brighten up: Latrice Royale.

I’ve loved the big gal since the show opened — and I’ve been rooting for her — but she really turned it on last night in the main challenge, which found the ladies acting out a scene from the fake sitcom Hot in Tuckahoe. As Ru described at the top of the challenge, Tuckahoe was about “four best squirrel friends who keep getting arrested and sent to jail.” (The show looked cray-cray, but also like something I would watch… and enjoy.) Considering her prison past, Latrice was sure she was a perfect fit for the sitcom. “As soon as I saw that there was a prison guard,” Latrice said, “I knew that was the role for me.” And Latrice delivered, giving the camera such a load of facial expressions that the editors cut various shots of her lip-pursing into her group’s comedy scene. “Honey, you could do that for half an hour,” Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick told Latrice, of her perfect pursing, “and they would laugh.” She was successful largely because she just went for it and performed over the top, which is what works in television sitcoms. (To be fair, Dida, Willam, and Phi Phi did well, too — they all employed a similar balls-to-the-wall approach.)


'American Idol': Deandre Brackensick, Jessica Sanchez early frontrunners for hairography, cuteness

And they may look familiar! We remember silly vanilli Deandre Brackensick, 17, from last season of American Idol. The judges brutally cut him on the Green Mile after Hollywood Week, but not before we were treated to plenty of loving zoom-ins on his exquisite face and hair. In a way, all of us had won. Except Deandre.

Jessica Sanchez, 16, appeared on the first season of America’s Got Talent when she was just 11. These crazy kids!

They can both still wail even in their old age. The hair pair sang “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” with Candice Glover on tonight’s Las Vegas show. Watch that standout performance — and evidence of Deandre and Jessica’s former near-stardom — here.  READ FULL STORY

Westminster's New Top Dog: Malachy the Pekingese

If you missed the cutest three hours on primetime last night, there’s a new top dog: Malachy the Pekingese, Best in Show at the 2012 Westminster Dog Show. The first night of the doggy showdown featured the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding groups. Last night featured the Sporting, Working, and Terrier groups. (Click here for a gallery of the show’s top dogs.)

Malachy competed in the Best in Show group last year but lost to Hickory the Scottish Deerhound. But the Pekingese rose to the occasion this year, making him the first Pekingese to take the title since 1990. READ FULL STORY

Westminster Dog Show 2012 -- PHOTOS


Dog Show! Well, the 2012 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, to be exact. Yesterday the 136th annual Westminster festivities kicked off in New York City with judging in the Hound (including the basset hound, bloodhound, and the adorably named otterhound), Toy (poodles! pugs! pomeranians! the very luxurious Cavalier King Charles spaniel pictured to your right!), Non-Sporting (bulldogs, though somehow, not this one) and Herding (like collies, German shepherds) breeds.

Today’s judging, which airs on USA from 8-11 p.m. EST, will include Sporting, Working, and Terrier breeds and varieties, all leading up to the announcement of Best in Show. (In the meantime, you can watch a live feed of the show on the WKC’s website, sadly none of which includes the dazzling commentary of Buck Laughlin.)

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 3 query: Can Sharon Needles' domination be stopped? Vote in our poll!

Just let the above screengrab wash over you for a second: It’s simply sickening Sharon Needles realness from last night’s new episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, titled “Glamazons vs. Champions.”

Be honest: Have you ever laid your eyes on such magnificence in your life? Yes, you definitely are seeing quadruple images of the self-described “spooky, beautiful, and stupid” queen serving demented versions of Cruella de Vil and Marilyn Manson. And it’s amazing.

Sharon is pictured here because the biggest outcome from last night’s episode was, indeed, that Needles has solidified her place as a force to be reckoned with on the show — despite drawing the ire of other contestants (we’re looking at you, Phi Phi). SPOILER ALERT: The dark-and-twisty queen took home the crown in the infomercial-themed challenge, a mere two weeks after she pulled off the same feat in the show’s season 4 premiere.

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

'RuPaul's Drag Race' week 2 query: Was 'WTF' one of the most outrageous challenges ever?


Over three seasons, we’ve seen boatloads of lunacy on RuPaul’s Drag Race: Everything from dresses made from dollar bills and egregious shoulder flair to huge, raging queens that throw other contestants around and futuristic get-ups that look like they were ripped from the 2050 version of Cats. Last night’s episode, “WTF!: Wrestling’s Trashiest Fighters,” was centered around a ridiculous WWF-inspired challenge, which was pretty nuts and begs the question: Was this one of the series’ most outrageous challenges ever?

For sure. I think last night’s new episode will majestically go down in Drag Race history with those memorable hours mentioned above, as the 12 remaining queens found themselves putting together drag wrestling looks and then putting on an outlandish, drama-filled show for the judges — something they’ve never done before. “Tonight,” RuPaul told the gals before the main challenge, “you’ll be transforming yourself into wrestling’s trashiest fighters.” Yes: WTF. (Ru, your cleverness is always appreciated.)

All the evidence you need of last night’s challenge brilliance is in this post: Just look at the capture of Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels — excuse me, Latrice the Beast and Killer Kenya. It…is…beyond! These ladies really killed it the crazy department, putting on a show that kept me cackling all night. “Yesterday,” Ru dramatically told all the ladies after the challenge, “you changed the face of professional wrestling forever. I smell a spin-off!” WTF, indeed! It just seems devastating that such a spectacular pair — Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels — didn’t win the challenge.


Casey Abrams shaves beard for Inflammatory Bowel Disease awareness, completes transformation into Cabbage Patch Kid cop -- VIDEO

It’s an important milestone in any doughy young boy or doll’s life. Watch American Idol season 10 standout Casey Abrams (have his dad) shave his beard after the jump. Then tell me what frustrates you more — the kid’s complete inability to groom himself or his neglect to put Haley Reinhart on speakerphone?!
