Jon Gosselin comes to grips with Reality, resembles rational human being

Jon Gosselin: Unlikely voice of reason?

It’s hard to believe the idea that Gosselin, the former reality-star-in-the-throes-of-a-midlife crisis and unofficial Ed Hardy spokesman, could be someone we’d actually have to listen to again, let alone agree with, but here we are, PopWatchers. Gosselin recently sat down (in what appears to be the waiting room of a dentist or dermatology office) with RumorFix.com to share his thoughts on his ex-wife’s determination to keep herself — and their kids — in the spotlight for financial reasons, as their recently-canceled show Kate Plus 8 draws to an end.

Now, brace yourselves, it all sounds entirely logical and seems kind of sincere. Michael Lohan, your former douchey protege hath betrayed you! Seriously this guy just said these things:

“Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids. People work normal jobs. And things work out.”

“To rely on reality television… that’s a misnomer. Reality television is not a career. Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family.”

“I have my kids, I have my custody, I pay child support … I don’t have a farm on 24 acres… and the kids seem to have a good time at my house.” (Maybe he let them eat their pizza without guilt and berating? So there, Steve the Security Guard!) READ FULL STORY

Bryan Buckley, the director behind Krasinski-Baldwin New Era ads, explains how the rivalry came to be

As any fan of the long-rivaled Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees can attest, those New Era commercials that pit John Krasinski (the Sox purist) and Alec Baldwin (the Yankees diehard) against one another perfectly encapsulate the trash-talking banter and deep-seated contempt that the followers, even friendly ones, of the two teams feel towards one another. In fact, Bryan Buckley, the director behind those ingenious ads, sees the spots as almost a metaphor for the generations-spanning rivalry. “It’s always been interesting to me that [the commercials] are in black and white,” he tells EW. “Because that’s exactly what the rivalry is: Black and white. You either go one way or the other: Red Sox or Yankees.”

While Krasinski and Baldwin both stand strong on which side of the battle line they fall on, the actors (and real-life friends) were more than happy to step up to the plate and work together once more (they first collaborated on the 2010 comedy It’s Complicated) to represent their respective teams. Buckley, who has worked on other memorable promos over the past few years, including the oft-repeated “What Happens in Vegas” campaign, spoke with EW about how the wildly popular New Era ads featuring the two stars came to be and why its struck such a chord with baseball fans… and even some of the players!

Alec Baldwin fires up the NY/Boston rivalry by torching tickets (and his apartment)

In the name of Yankees pride, Alec Baldwin had punched John Krasinski in the face and humiliated his It’s Complicated co-star on the Yankee Stadium jumbotron. But things get a lot more heated in the latest commercial from New Era caps. After a particularly painful New York loss to the hated Red Sox, Baldwin finally burns his fingers by going too far. Take a look below as Baldwin gets his karmic due for torching a full-house of treasured Red Sox tickets. READ FULL STORY

Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain are at war

I apologize in advance that this post will not feature a video of Deen and Bourdain wrestling to the death in a big-ass vat of butter. Nope, all that happened is that Anthony Bourdain called Paula Deen “the worst, most dangerous person in America … plus, her food sucks” in an interview for TV Guide. The No Reservations star also slammed Deen’s fellow Food Network chefs Rachael Ray (“Does she even cook anymore?”), Sandra Lee (“I hate her works on this planet, but she is not someone to be dismissed, clearly.”), and Guy Fieri (“I look at Guy and I just think, ‘Jesus, I’m glad that’s not me'”).

First of all, can we just revel for a second in “I hate her works on this planet?” Thank you. Seriously, who knows how many other galaxies Sandra Lee is ‘botting out on right now.

Deen has fired back with a viscous stream of cholesterol and words!  READ FULL STORY

The most ridiculous item of the day: Piers Morgan, Keith Olbermann feud on Twitter

In today’s edition of grumpy older men, Piers Morgan and Keith Olbermann are trading jabs over… well, everything at this point.

To be fair, Olberman poked the bear yesterday when he tweeted a snide remark referencing Christine O’Donnell’s recent walk-out on Morgan’s show: “Who walks out on @PiersMorgan tonight? I’m betting on…the audience (as usual).” READ FULL STORY

Bill Paxton to duel with Kevin Costner in History's 'Hatfields and McCoys'

History’s miniseries The Hatfields and McCoys: An American Vendetta has lined up Bill Paxton to play Randall McCoy opposite Kevin Costner’s “Devil” Anse Hatfield. Those who remember the dueling westerns known as 1993’s Tombstone (in which Paxton costarred as Morgan Earp) and 1994’s Wyatt Earp (starring Costner in the title role) may get a special kick out of that. I’m now dreaming of a miniseries filled with Tombstone actors in one clan and Wyatt Earp actors in the other. For those of you unfamiliar with the Hatfield-McCoy tale, here’s a history lesson from the network:  READ FULL STORY

Dane Cook settles Louis C.K. joke-stealing feud on 'Louie'

Dane Cook guested on last night’s episode of Louis C.K.’s FX series Louie in a must-see for any devoted fan of stand-up comedy who followed the two comics’ passive-aggressive feud over joke-stealing. When Cook became a rock-star comic a few years back — in 2000 and six, according to Cook — insiders charged that a few of his jokes resembled bits from Louis C.K.’s act. The backlash was harsh, as Cook points out after Louis swallows his pride and asks his rival to help him secure Lady Gaga tickets for his daughter.

Cook doesn’t let him off easy, saying, “The one thing that really just gets to me is the whole thing about people saying I stole the joke about the itchy a–hole, because I get an itchy a–hole… a lot. So for you to think you’re the only person who got an itchy a–hole in America. I mean, that’s bulls—.” Watch the surreal, NSFW clip after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus gets inked for the gays, starts a Twitter war

Miley Cyrus has gone on record in support of gay rights in the past, but this time she went with a decidedly more permanent statement. Last Friday, the singer tweeted a photo of her new tattoo, an equal sign on her right ringer finger, with the caption “All LOVE is equal.” In a year where the “It Gets Better” videos have served as a very formal, very scripted (and, yes, very powerful) beacon of the gay rights landscape, Cyrus’s subtle nod is a quirky (and dare I even say refreshing?) political affirmation. If nothing else, she is, in her own way, breathing new life into the debate with the kind of nonchalance that only an 18-year-old can. Unfortunately for Miss Miley, announcing her new art didn’t turn out to be all peace, love, and rainbows.  READ FULL STORY

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

Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris get into a war of words. But we only have one word for it: Whyyyyy?!

There is nothing worse than getting caught in between a couple, post-break-up, while they go back and forth with their “he said, she said” routine. (Actually, getting caught in between this would be worse. Way worse.)

So imagine our discomfort when Crystal Harris stopped by Howard Stern’s XM radio show on Tuesday to plant irreversible images in our head bash the boat captain/magazine mogul. In addition to claiming that she’d never seen Hef naked because the 85-year-old rarely takes off his clothes (here’s an artist’s rendering of what he would probably look like), Harris said that sex with Hef only went for “like, two seconds.” The 24-year-old, who said she wasn’t turned on by the Playboy founder (jowls just aren’t for everyone) then meticulously articulated her post-traumatic Hef disorder for listeners, “Then I was just over it. Was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just, like, walked away.”

But Hef wasn’t going to take this lying down (not unless he had an orthopedic mattress or it was time for his 2 p.m. nap). READ FULL STORY
