During a visit to The View today, actress Annie Potts star slammed Newt Gingrich, who earlier called her new show, GCB, an example of the entertainment industry’s “anti-Christian bigotry.” Potts began tamely, musing, “I don’t know what all the fuss is about.” But it took very little prodding from co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to get her going.

Jon who? Though currently embroiled in the most important semi-feud between two ridiculously attractive people since Sarah Hyland made fun of Lea Michele that one time in September, Kim Kardashian proved that she was totally over Jon Hamm by tweeting a smiley picture that gratuitously peddled her own hams. “Can’t sleep tonight…” was the winking caption she put on an Instagram photo boasting an impish grin that totally suggested the opposite. Who looks that happy when they’re suffering from sleep deprivation? I’m going to guess that Kim got at least seven hours last night.
Upon further research, evidence has emerged suggesting that Kim’s tweet was actually — get this — promotional. You see, the long-awaited Kardashian Kollection lingerie kollection has hit Sears, and the super-skintastic ad campaign was posted on sister Khloe’s website yesterday. “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!?” Khloe wondered. “Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL.” READ FULL STORY
Not a “Mad Man,” so much as a “Mildly Miffed Man” (doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it?). Jon Hamm has responded to the reaction from Kim Kardashian regarding a statement he made to the U.K. edition of Elle. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” Hamm told the magazine. “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly…. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.” (We have no idea what he could possibly be referencing.)
Kardashian took offense to the statement and spoke her mind on Twitter, telling followers, “I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless.” (As of press time, there’s still no reaction from “Paris Hilton…or whoever.”)
So how did Hamm address Kim’s umbrage? Find out below.

You’d think that by now Kim Kardashian might be used to this sort of thing. After all, the ubiquitous reality star has earned her fair share of criticism about everything from her 72-day marriage to her offensively exorbitant lifestyle to her family’s general terribleness. Having already been called a ‘f—ing idiot’ by Daniel Craig, Kim should have suspected that other classy, handsome Hollywood gents might feel the same way. In fact, in an interview with Elle UK Jon Hamm found the same words for her. (And Paris Hilton, for that matter. Remember her, you guys? Guys?)
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” the Mad Men star told the magazine, adding, “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly….It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

It’s impossible to read Elisabeth Moss‘ revealing interview with The New York Post‘s Page Six magazine without hearing traces of Peggy Olson in there. (It’s also impossible to get over that revealing cover. Yowza. Game, set, point, Stan.) When the Mad Men actress opened up to the magazine about her painful divorce from Saturday Night Live and Portlandia star Fred Armisen, her surprisingly blunt statements about him sounded not unlike a well-executed Peggy remark at one of her male counterparts.
While Moss said her split from Armisen was “so hard to talk about,” the 29-year-old still got out one biting strike about her ex. “One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person,’” Moss said of the SNL star who has mimicked the likes of President Barack Obama, Lawrence Welk, Joy Behar, Prince, and the late Muammar Gaddafi, adding, “To me, that sums it up.” Joan would be proud.

During a visit to The Today Show on Thursday morning, professional rich guy/television personality Donny Deutsch shared his feelings on Star Jones’ return to The View on Wednesday. While Deutsch and Jones were visiting the show to appear on their “Today’s Professionals” segment, he used the first few moments as a platform to talk about the uncomfortable View reunion.
“They ambushed her,” Deutsch said of her first visit to the show since her controversial exit from the talk show nearly six years ago, “It was cruel what [Barbara Walters] and Joy [Behar] did to her.” Deutsch continued, “I felt like I was watching mean girls in a seventh grade cafeteria pick on a vulnerable girl. They went at her… .I don’t know if they’re doing this for ratings…. I think they owe her an apology.”

You knew it was only a matter of time. Charlie Sheen finally stopped holding his tongue on the issue of his former sitcom Two and a Half Men. He called into TMZ Live yesterday and said bluntly, “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending they’re not completely adrift.”
Moments later, Sheen clarified that he wasn’t personally attacking Kutcher: “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.” Admitting he had been watching the show, he added, “It’s kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking good care of it.” Check out more of Sheen’s cutting remarks against the writers in the clip after the jump.

Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler have been exchanging brassy, barbed banter for years. This week saw the two comedians rekindle their feud in the last couple of days, and wouldn’t you know Howard Stern is at the center of it all? It started Monday when Handler appeared on Stern’s Sirius XM radio show. He asked how she felt about Rivers, and Handler stated combatively, “Joan Rivers? What the f— do I care about Joan Rivers?” She rolled her eyes as she mentioned running into Rivers and her TV costar daughter Melissa recently, then said, “I don’t think about either one of them. Ever.”
The Joan & Melissa stars wasted no time in personally responding, stopping by Stern’s show the next day, describing Handler as a comedian who “made it on her back,” a “drunk,” a “whore,” and “not a genius.” Oh, but there’s more! See what else the “ladies” had to say about one another in the (obviously) NSFW clips below. READ FULL STORY
Where Paula Deen goes, Anthony Bourdain seems to follow…and so does a big ol’ serving of controversy.
Shortly after the news came down this morning that famed food personality Deen confirmed that she has Type 2 diabetes, Bourdain — who’s famously had a beef with Deen in the past — made an oddly coincidental and cryptic comment on his Twitter feed, likely referring to his rival’s latest revelation. “Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business,” Bourdain wrote, “so I can profitably sell crutches later.”
TMZ picked up on the tweet, but Bourdain hedged his response to Deen on Twitter later in the day: “For the record: Never called anybody a “diabetic scam artist”. TMZ’s words. Not mine.”
The tweet likely refers to the fact that Deen officially announced her affliction while also touting her new Diabetes in a New Light Web site and products, thus capitalizing on a disease that — one could argue, and it seems Bourdain certainly is — she helped further in America with the comfort food she teaches the television masses to make. Not to take Bourdain’s side, but all that fried chicken, mac and cheese, and sticks of butter definitely weren’t preventing diabetes in any way.
Bourdain’s bad blood with Deen dates back to last summer, when he called her the “most dangerous person to America” and said that she’s “proud of the fact that her food is f—— back for you.” Deen responded, naturally: “Get a life.”
Love him or hate him, does Bourdain have a point? Is it sick that Deen is profiting from a disease she seems to endorse? Are you Team Bourdain or Team Deen in this feud?

Comedian Bill Maher sparked a Twitter war this week with a post he wrote skewering quarterback Tim Tebow and his fervent religious beliefs following the Denver Bronco’s Christmas Eve loss to the Buffalo Bills. “Wow, Jesus just f—d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them,” Maher tweeted.
Tebowing – getting down on one knee to pray in a crowd no matter what else is going on – has been an easy target for ridicule, sparking an Internet meme and becoming part of a Saturday Night Live sketch. Tebow was even immortalized in song by some creative ESPN editors. READ FULL STORY
