'Clueless' actress campaigns to be on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Her plastic surgeon may not want her doing any activities where balls fly at her nose, but dancing? That should be okay.

Clueless alum Elisa Donovan has started a campaign to be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. Donovan — who’s probably still best known as Amber in the 1995 movie — tweeted out a link to a Facebook group, “Help Elisa Donovan get on Dancing With the Stars,” over the weekend, acknowledging she’s game.

The Facebook group, which has over 1,500 Likes so far, explains, “We all loved her as Amber in the pop-culture hit Clueless, and now Elisa Donovan, who is a mom and a blogger for People.com, is ready to compete on Dancing With the Stars. Please LIKE this page to support Elisa getting to get on the next season.”

Is it possible Donovan is jealous of fellow ‘90s alum Elizabeth Berkley, who’s currently rocking season 17 of the show? Whatever! Donovan has some dancing experience as well – just check out this Night at the Roxbury clip, below. If Donovan can move like that with Chris Kattan, just imagine what she could do with an actual dancer. READ FULL STORY

Clueless star Stacey Dash defended her Twitter endorsement of Mitt Romney yesterday on CNN’s Piers Morning Tonight after receiving extreme backlash on social media.

The former Single Ladies actress said, “I really don’t understand the fury. … But you know what, you can’t expect everyone to agree with you.”

Dash said she was “saddened and really shocked” by the racially charged firestorm, which included tweets such as “You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice, you poor beautiful idiot.” READ FULL STORY

Dionne a Democrat? As if! 'Clueless' actress Stacey Dash takes heat for endorsing Romney

Democrats outnumber Republicans in California’s 30th congressional district — which represents rich L.A. suburbs like Santa Monica, Malibu, and Beverly Hills — 48 percent to 26 percent, according to the Los Angeles Times. But there’s one high-profile resident of the Fightin’ 30th who isn’t afraid to voice her support for Mitt Romney: Dionne Davenport, fashionista and graduate of Beverly Hills’ Bronson Alcott High School. Or, at least, Stacey Dash, the actress who played Dee in the big screen and TV versions of Clueless.

Fresh off the pages of EW’s Reunions Issue, Dash made waves yesterday when she tweeted a Romney endorsement. “Vote for Romney,” she wrote, calling the candidate “The only choice for your future.” Dash included a photo of herself posing against a giant American Flag backdrop at the end of her message.

The reaction on Twitter was swift and snarky.  READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: The casts of 'Arrested Development', 'Clueless' and more get back together in the Reunions Issue!


Are you ready for your yearly dose of pop-culture nostalgia? Entertainment Weekly‘s third annual Reunions Issue brings together ten of your favorite TV and movie casts, from The Larry Sanders Show to Breaking Away. To top it off, fans of Arrested Development, Melrose Place, and Clueless can celebrate their pop-culture favorites with special collector’s edition covers, which are available to buy individually. Here’s a sampling of what to expect:

Clueless: The high school satire may have evolved into a coming-of-age classic, but not every cast-member was immediately smitten with their character. Alicia Silverstone recounts her first impression of Cher: “I thought, ‘Who is this girl?’ I had nothing in common with her at all. I thought she was a materialistic, annoying little bitch.” She and co-star Donald Faison also admit that they didn’t immediately get most of the now-famous slang in the film. Says Faison: “I had no idea what the hell I was saying. What the f— is a ‘Monet’? What’s ‘going postal’ mean? And when they explained to me what it meant, I thought, ‘That’s really messed up!'”

Pop culture's best and worst teachers: Who makes the grade? -- POLL

Great teachers are all alike, in a sense — they’re mentors, role models, lifelong inspirations. Terrible teachers, on the other hand, are all awful in different ways. Some are drunken burnouts, while others are obnoxious frauds or sexually amorphous jerks who invite their personal BDSM slaves to perform lewd acts in front of their fourth graders. (Okay, that last one is probably limited to South Park).

Still, TV shows and movies are filled with characters who exemplify both poles. And in honor of back-to-school season, PopWatch wants to know who you think deserves to be at the head of the class — as well as who needs to have their teaching certification revoked, pronto.

The rules: These polls focus on teachers, so school administrators (sorry, Principal Belding), librarians (ditto, Rupert Giles), coaches (adios, Sue Sylvester), headmistresses (good riddance, Matilda‘s Trunchbull) and guidance counselors (you too, Mr. Russo from Freaks and Geeks) weren’t eligible for inclusion. Otherwise, though, it’s anyone’s game. Will you exalt Mr. Feeny and denounce Professor Umbridge, or celebrate Dead Poets Society English teacher Mr. Keating while pooh-poohing Ms. Halsey of Bad Teacher? The choice is yours and yours alone — but here are your options. Don’t worry; we made sure to show our work.


Style and Design: The 'Clueless' fashion comeback, Adam Levine's faux facial hair and more

Alicia Silverstone feeds her infant son, baby-bird style. Ugh, as if! -- VIDEO


Michael Bay isn’t the only person determined to sully your memories of the ’90s. A few days ago, Clueless star Alicia Silverstone wrote a blog post about sharing breakfast with her son. Sounds cute and harmless — until you get to this part: “I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his.”

Wait. Stop. Rewind. Cher Horowitz feeds her kid by spitting her already-chewed food directly into his mouth? I’ve heard of locavorism, but this is ridiculous.

While playing her most famous role, Silverstone advised girls to eat in front of the boys they liked, since “anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.” I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, “Maybe not anything.” Check out a video of the feeding below — if you think you can stomach it.
