I know I really shouldn’t be surprised that last night’s season finale of Fox’s More to Love left me with feelings of shame and outrage (and a side serving of “Hey, dude got it right!”). After all, the opening montage of bachelor Luke’s hometown visit kicked off with images of heifers lazily grazing in a field. Really, Fox? REALLY, you thought we wouldn’t notice you trying to sneak random bovine imagery into your plus-sized dating show? (Insert purse-lipped head-shake here.) READ FULL STORY »

Classically trained pianist Oksana Grigorieva somehow got Hollywood bigwig Mel Gibson to direct her first music video, Evening With Daddy. It might have a littlesomething to do with her carrying Gibson’s eighth child. So this video was disturbing right from the title (As Slezak pleaded, “Please tell me it’s not a romantic ballad sung to Mel. Please.”) Actually, it seems to be about music freeing her soul; if the lyrics “let the music take me home” are too obtuse, then Hollywood director Mel rams home the message with some not-so-subtle shots of Oksana being trapped in a bird cage and then pushing a piano over a mountain. The video was shot earlier this year in Mexico City, either before Grigorieva had a baby bump (she’s currently said to be about six- or seven-months pregnant) or with a lot of CGI to get a stomach thatflat. There are a few lyrics that could be interpreted as a timely response to becoming tabloid fodder as Mel’s new squeeze after the end of his 28-year marriage: “A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do now/Can’t nobody judge me ’cause it could be you now,” Grigorieva sings.
What do you think: Can Mel’s baby mama sing? Are you digging Gibson’s music video direction? Or are you too distracted by those lingering shots of her ankle tattoo to notice much else?
Dancing With the Stars‘ Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff have called off their engagement. It was Breaking News to People.com, and newsworthy enough for an Update by E! Online’s Marc Malkin, who reports that the duo will fulfill their obligation and dance together at this month’s Emmys (but have now requested separate dressing rooms). With EW’s Dancing With the Stars expert Annie Barrett out of the office, I thought I’d be able to get through the day without having an actual conversation about the break up. Jessica Shaw and I, however, just had an impromptu meeting in the ladies’ room about it (her initial response: “Duh”).
Have you found yourself chatting about Maks and Karina’s split? Tell the truth in the poll below.
P.S. Despite Annie’s “How Do I Live Without You, Maks?” video, made when her occasional collaborator announced his engagement last January, she had wished only the best for the couple.

Congratulations are in order to actress Milla Jovovich and sci-fi auteur Paul W.S. Anderson, who, People.com informs me, got hitched last night in a small sunset ceremony at their Beverly Hills home. The couple met when Anderson was directing Jovovich in 2002′s Resident Evil, which researchers believe may be the first time that a successful real-life romance has resulted from a movie based on a video game about zombies.
In addition to those warm congratulations, I should also offer a brief apology-slash-cautionary tale: When I first read this headline, I thought for a second that it said Jovovich had married There Will Be Blood‘s Paul Thomas Anderson, and I was all, “How could he do Maya Rudolph like that?!” Needless to say, Paul W.S. Anderson and Paul Thomas Anderson are in fact two completely distinct people who happen to share an occupation and a near-identical name. They probably get that a lot. Sorry, dudes!
So, don’t make the same mistake I did. Know your Paul Andersons. And share your well-wishes for Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson in the comments below.
When a friend said last night on Twitter that Kathy Griffin had taken Levi Johnston — teenage father of Bristol Palin’s son Tripp — as her date to this year’s Teen Choice Awards, I thought I had to be reading some sort of joke. But apparently this is a thing that actually happened.
So weird. Since when is former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s former future son-in-law a red carpet celebrity? I can’t tell if Johnston meant this appearance as a self-aware gag about extending his 15 minutes of fame — in which case, pretty funny! — or if he’s genuinely trying to position himself as someone Hollywood should care about. The fact that he was in town for a Vanity Fair photo shoot suggests the latter option, which is sort of tragic, but I’m guessing the answer is a little bit of both. READ FULL STORY »
Brad Pitt’s mug graces this weekend’s issue of Parade magazine. The biggest news off the accompanying interview will no doubt concern the sex he and partner Angelina Jolie may or may not be having in the “secret stone grotto” of his pool, but I was just as interested to see Pitt once again speak up in support of gay marriage. He reaffirms his 2006 promise not to get legally wed until everyone can and says, “They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment.” READ FULL STORY »
Okay, so it might not be the most earth-shattering news. Rumors about Cox and Arquette’s return had been circulating for the past month. And the pair appeared in the previous three Scream films, so what would keep them from starring in a fourth? But still, a Scream film without the Cox-Arquettes would be a little like an American Pie sequel without Eugene Levy, no?
Are you excited for the fourth Scream film? For Arquette and Cox’s return? Or is there another Scream alum you’d prefer to see back in the game? All must be revealed on the message boards below!
I do not care if it’s Aniston, Jen
Or a plastic doll whose name is Ken
Or that actress who plays Bridget Jones
Or if he’s dining all alone
He starred in Alias, so I don’t hate
But as for who’s sharing his dinner plate?
Check the box marked “TMI”
Or the one that’s labeled “Le frown, le sigh”
I do not care who dines with Bradley
But suspect I’ll keep on hearing, sadly
Jennifer Love Hewitt is writing a dating guide, The Day I Shot Cupid, that will be published in March 2010. According to the release, "she will reveal a surprisingly wicked sense of humor as she explores the new landscape of modern dating and offers up a wide range of practical tips, from text-flirting and IM-ing to what men and women really want, and how to start over after a breakup."
Now, I know what you're thinking: Do we really want love advice from a woman who's dated Joey Lawrence, Carson Daly, John Mayer, and now her Ghost Whisperer costar Jamie Kennedy? Well, at least the fact that none of them are A-list keeps her relatable. (She has been known to work the merch table at Kennedy's stand-up gigs — and has bedazzled the T-shirts he sells.) Maybe it's all those tears she's got me to shed on Friday nights (I'm incredibly vulnerable when I'm tired), but I think she just might be honest enough to get me to read this book if I'm sent one for free. "Throughout my career, there has always been so much written about my love life. Some true, but mostly made up," she says in the release. "I thought it was time to share the real story of what I’ve learned navigating the dating waters. Hopefully, in addition to having a good laugh, women reading this will learn from some of my hard lessons.”
What would Hewitt have to share to get you to pick it up and take it to the café in Starbucks and then leave it on the table?
