'Project Runway': Best stinkface of the night?

Project Runway consistently serves up some of the most vile/awesome stinkfaces on television. Last night’s episode, which had the contestants designing for evil overlord Nina Garcia, was no exception. Vote below for the week’s best.

Some context: Contestant Olivier (bottom right) has just learned that Bert, who is sitting directly next to him, didn’t realize he was in the room. It happens! READ FULL STORY

Adam Carolla in hot water over anti-gay comments; GLAAD issues statement

Another day, another comedian in hot water.

Anti-gay comments made last week by Adam Carolla on his Podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show,” prompted GLAAD to speak out against the radio host today in a release that accuses him of “gross intolerance.”

The organization reports on the incident in a press release, writing: “In his rant, he also told LGBT people to ‘shut up’ because they are ‘ruining his life’ by speaking out about equality. He went on to say that members of the LGBT community should stop using the letters ‘LGBT’ to describe themselves, and should instead use ‘YUCK.’ Regarding transgender people, Carolla at one point asked: ‘When did we start giving a sh–t about these people?’”

Carolla told EW via his rep, “I’m sorry my comments were hurtful. I’m a comedian, not a politician.” READ FULL STORY

'Dirty Dancing' remake: EW.com reader outrage heroically captured in 15 Baby faces

Within minutes of our announcement that Kenny Ortega has signed on to directDirty Dancing reboot, many of you had already echoed my own reaction to the news. (EWWWWW.com.) It struck me violently in the face that perhaps the horror of this situation can best be expressed by the original Baby, Jennifer Grey herself.

“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” –Sarah  READ FULL STORY

When did you stop watching 'Desperate Housewives'? And will you come back?

The news yesterday that Desperate Housewives impending eighth season would be its last was greeted by my brain with a small but pungent whooshing sound. Like: Pffffffshhhhhh. I think it was the sound of my synapses struggling not to care, and failing.*

Because the fact of the matter is that while I abandoned this show during the George W. Bush administration, I still hold Susan, Bree, Lynette, and Gabrielle in a messily designed but still rather plush corner of my heart. It remains an all too rare event when a television show revolves around that many (relatively) fully realized female characters and becomes a true cultural phenomenon. (The others: Sex and the City, Golden Girls, and, um…) Also, and this is probably more important, the show at its best was fun, a confection of soapy, sappy, silly, and sassy that felt unlike anything else on TV.

And then the second season began, with its deadly Betty Applewhite, locked-my-son-in-chains-in-the-basement storyline, and the air began to leak out of the balloon. READ FULL STORY

'Project Runway': Let's Hear It for the Side-Eye

Anthony and Bryce made no attempt to mask their disdain for immunity-happy Bert on the runway after last night’s turn-a-pet-store-into-fashion challenge. Dude didn’t even try!

Would Bert’s look have been better if he had tried? Hard to say.

Twitter fail: When celebrities think you care too much

As a journalist on the periphery of the outskirts of the periphery of the celebrity kingdom, I can tell you that famous people are better and smarter than us common folk. Their stories are better, their teeth are brighter, and their smell… delightful. So when I make the commitment to follow a bold-faced name on Twitter, I expect to be enlightened, entertained, or at least belittled in some way. For the most part, they don’t let me down. But occasionally, I’m left feeling empty.

Take, for example, Hugh Hefner. READ FULL STORY

Kat Von D cancels tour, says 'I suck.' Well, that explains it!

What?! No! No. This simply cannot be. Brace yourselves for this one, PopWatchers. Kat Von D, the latest inductee into the Official Jesse James Heartbreak Club (OJJHC) has cancelled her LA Ink promotional tour, following yesterday’s Good Day L.A. storm out. Before you start breaking things in understandable fits of rage, know that Von D offered a detailed explanation regarding the sudden cancellation on her Facebook page, in a lengthy post entitled “What can I say? I suck.”

Oh. Okay, Kat. That explains everything. The beleaguered Von D went on to apologize for yesterday’s drama, and expressed the heavy weight she’s been carrying since she began her relationship with James last year. To be fair, it can’t be easy being one fourth of a love quadrangle that includes a beloved movie star and a fetish model with a noted fondness for Nazi attire.  READ FULL STORY

'The Smurfs' scores 0 on Rotten Tomatoes. So... how much do you love your children?

No one is expecting The Smurfs to threaten Woody, WALL•E, or Shrek's place on the Mount Rushmore of animated films --
we've seen the trailer after all. But early critical reception for the Sony Pictures Animation film has been more grouchy than Gargamel, with the animated film scoring a perfect zero on Rotten Tomatoes. [Update: After a luke-warm endorsement from the New York Times, The Smurfs has risen to a 19 percent RT rating.]

Which begs the question: How much do you love your children?

Kat Von D isn't having it with 'Good Day LA,' you guys.

Despite the fact that she announced her split from fiancé Jesse James over Twitter on Tuesday and the season premiere of her reality series LA Ink – which airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. on TLC – -was going to chronicle their now-defunct engagement, Kat Von D really didn’t want to talk about the break-up. At least, not with the fun times gang over at Good Day LA.

After Jillian Barberie and Co. showed a clip from the new season of LA Ink that featured Von D showing James one of her (many) tattoos, the 29-year-old stormed off the set (or as she explained on Twitter, “I walked out because of your disrespectful intro you guys ‘snuck’ in.”) Von D also tweeted, “Dear Good Day L.A, Thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion and respect for each other never fails to disappoint me.”

Still, the abrupt walk-off and tweet stunned the Good Day LA anchors (who, as The Soup will often happily point out are, if nothing else, serious journalists). READ FULL STORY

'Glee' casting shake-up: Part 2. When is the right time to say goodbye to high school?

When it was announced earlier this month that stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith would be leaving Glee after season 3, not only did it make sense (their characters will be graduating from high school, after all) but it felt as though Ryan Murphy was making some concrete decisions to move the show forward.

Then came the news at this weekend’s Comic-Con from the show’s co-creator and exec producer Brad Falchuk that the trio won’t be leaving after all. “It was never our plan or our intention to let them go,” Falchuk said at the Glee panel, adding, “They are not done with the show after this season.” He also stated, “Graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don’t say, ‘We’re gonna let you go.’” READ FULL STORY
