Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa and Fabio go 'Mano a Mano'

Yesterday, Fabio challenged old Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa to an Internet duel — appropriately named, “Mano a Mano in el Baño” — to determine who is the ultimate Old Spice Guy. After single-handedly resolving the NFL lockdown (or so he claims), Mustafa accepted. As of noon today, the dueling beefcakes have been puffing out their formidable chests in an attempt to one-up each other on the brand’s YouTube channel.

Facebook temporarily suspends Roger Ebert's account after Ryan Dunn tweets

Roger Ebert’s Facebook account was shut down briefly this morning after people complained about his posts regarding Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who died Monday morning in a car accident along with his friend Zachary Hartwell after a night at a local West Chester, Pa., bar. “Facebook has removed my page in response, apparently, to malicious complaints from one or two jerks,” tweeted Ebert, “Facebook! My page is harmless and an asset to you. Why did you remove it in response to anonymous jerks? Makes you look bad.”

Facebook reinstated Ebert’s account after about an hour, and a spokesperson for the social network said the discipline action had been an error. READ FULL STORY

Roger Ebert chides Ryan Dunn for drinking and driving: Too soon?

Hours after Jackass star Ryan Dunn and another passenger were killed in an early morning car accident in eastern Pennsylvania yesterday, film critic and habitual tweeter Roger Ebert posted the news of his passing, with a link to the local NBC News report. Moments later, he followed with, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”

Though the West Goshen Police Department’s accident report made no mention of alcohol as a cause of the accident, Dunn had posted a photo on his own Twitter account just hours before the crash that showed him and two friends drinking at a local bar. Though the manager of the bar told CNN, “He didn’t seem to be intoxicated at the time he left,” there’s no denying that Dunn was drinking and driving. READ FULL STORY

Michael Bay on Megan Fox's Hitler remark: Spielberg said, 'Fire her right now'

You don't have to be Dale Carnegie to know that you shouldn't compare your boss, who can fire you, to Adolf Hitler. So when Transformers vixen Megan Fox told Wonderland magazine in 2009 that
her director was like the infamous Nazi mass murderer, well, she was inevitably replaced for the franchise's upcoming third film. Now, Bay is admitting the obvious, telling GQ that Fox's departure had everything to do with the führer furor:  "She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg]

said, ‘Fire her right now.’ ” READ FULL STORY

Eminem has now dissed all celebrities; nation yawns

Eminem’s at it again with the celebrity disses in “A Kiss,” a track off his forthcoming album Hell: The Sequel. But are they even that bad, compared to some of the more ridiculous s— he’s doled out? Below, I’ve listed some of the Chrysler enthusiast’s more egregious celeb disses. And it’s not even all of ‘em! (I know you guys have been on the edges of your seats waiting for my opinions on Eminem.)

Lady Gaga (“A Kiss”)
Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office
She’s already a male lady
Wouldn’t f— her with her d—
The verdict’s in.

She must be heartbroken about that! READ FULL STORY

John Krasinski whiffs in latest Red Sox/Yankees prank against Alec Baldwin

The second-place Boston Red Sox open up a three-game set against the first-place New York Yankees tonight, which means two things. One, that a man wearing a Big Papi jersey in Penn Station this morning better be faster and tougher than the real Big Papi, or he won’t make it anywhere near the Bronx. And two, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski are due for Round 3 of their New Era shenanigans. Recall that last we saw the It’s Complicated co-stars, Baldwin had punched Krasinski in the face and urged him to get plastic surgery. So I don’t blame Krasinski for seeking revenge by billboarding Baldwin’s pooch. But much like the old Boston Cheers gang, who were always outclassed and outmaneuvered in their ongoing rivalry with Gary’s Old Towne Tavern, the Office star might be in over his head. This dog don’t hunt. READ FULL STORY

Jay Leno accused of lifting joke from Fox News program

Some say that Jay Leno hit bottom during his failed primetime show and the subsequent Conan O’Brien imbroglio. Which is really saying something for someone who used to crack skulls with Pat Morita. But now, he’s being accused of stealing jokes. From Fox News.

On Saturday night’s Red Eye, a wee-hours Fox News show hosted by Greg Gutfeld, ombudsman Andy Levy pointed out that Leno had made a joke on Thursday night that used virtually the same set-up and punchline as one Levy said on the air earlier in the week. Both bits were pegged to the news in California that a court ruling would require the state to free thousands of inmates from its prisons, leading both joke tellers to mention how this was great news for the Oakland Raiders! Hey, now! READ FULL STORY

David Letterman celebrates Oprah's last show with Top 10 list, dramatic reading

There are a multitude of reasons to mourn the loss of Oprah’s television show. High on my list is the inevitable demise of the long-running “Pat & Kenny Read Oprah Transcripts,” David Letterman’s dramatization of Oprah, courtesy of two grizzled stagehands. Last night, the duo tackled an episode with Martha Stewart discussing a spicy grilled cheese sandwich, and it was “very ha-cha-cha.” GawkerTV has the clip here, and click below for Dave’s Oprah-themed Top 10 List, in which he just couldn’t help himself.

Lee DeWyze and Nigel Lythgoe snipe online over 'Idol' finale

While Scotty McCreery was crowned the new American Idol Wednesday night, last year’s champion, Lee DeWyze, seemed lost in the background of the Nokia Theatre. His fans vented online, but the show’s executive producer Nigel Lythgoe explained on Twitter that DeWyze himself had declined a more prominent role. “I was so upset Lee DeWyze wouldn’t present the winners trophy to Scotty,” he wrote. “Especially as he’d been on the show this Season. I guess he was shy.”

But DeWyze objected online, claiming that he wasn’t really asked to be part of the finale, writing, “Just for the record… I was not asked to be involved in the Finale. READ FULL STORY

Zach Galifianakis rips January Jones: 'Everybody's going to forget about you in a few years'

On “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis,” guests can expect to be treated rudely by the insecure host. But there doesn’t seem to be anything inspired or playful about Galifianakis’ recent remarks about Mad Men beauty January Jones. After a writer from ShortList.com mentioned that Jones had named the Hangover star as the “most naturally funny person she’d ever met,” Galifianakis basically scoffed. “If I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other,” he said. “It was crazy. I was at a party — I’d never met her — and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f—ing be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?” READ FULL STORY
