'Fear Factor' returning to your TV -- are you already nauseous thinking about it?

Oh, Michael Scott, so many things are happening in the pop culture world this week that have made us think of you. First, Donald Trump and Sarah Palin got themselves “a real New York slice” like you did when you visited the Big Apple, and now one of your favorite programs, Fear Factor, is getting ready to head back to television, as EW exclusively reported earlier today.

While there’s no word on whether a Todd Packer-fied mystery carpet will serve as a challenge or if original host Joe Rogan will return (presumably for midseason or next summer), other Fear Factor fans like Mr. Scott should be thrilled that the reality series is being revived by NBC. I, on the other hand, fear the Factor. Not so much for their crazy stunts in which willing (seriously, why?!) contestants dangle from high altitudes or reach excessive speeds, but because I simply cannot stomach all the gross-out gags. Gag being the operative word here.  READ FULL STORY

Baby, baby, baby, ew: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez share (another) awkward kiss

Sorry, Harold Camping, but this is what the end of the world looks like. Well, for tween girls, anyway.

During Sunday night’s broadcast of the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, Top New Artist winner Justin Bieber planted one on his ladyfriend Selena Gomez on live television, for all the world to see. Not only devastating his young female fans, but making people of all ages terribly uncomfortable. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Fear the chalk children

Much like the beginning of last week’s episode of We Should Have Live Cougars On Cougar Town, Travis was still hanging out in the dark mourning the loss of Kirsten. He hadn’t even been going to college. It was a Travisty. (See what I did there?) But breakups are hard. It took Jules a year to bounce back after she and Bobby split up, and it was the worst weekend of Bobby’s life.

Travis finally admitted that college might not be right for him after he was caught lying about being on spring break. So Jules gave him an ultimatum: Go back to college or move out and get a job. Travis knew his mom’s new tough love attitude wasn’t really her, despite her claim that she “tosses asses.” But who was she kidding? She couldn’t even let her son eat stale chips. Sure enough, Jules’ tough-love act didn’t last for long. Instead, she and Travis had a kite-flying, sandcastle-building day at the beach.

Colin Farrell in 'Horrible Bosses': Which stars do you still find attractive when they go 'ugly'?

Yesterday, the trailer for the upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses hit the Web, and while most people were buzzing about Jennifer Aniston’s very against-type role as a sexually harassing dentist (okay, people were probably talking about that scene in which she strips down, too), it was Colin Farrell (pictured left with Jason Sudeikis) who caught my eye. Not only because it’s so unfortunately rare to see him in comedies, but because they made him look so awful. It’s no easy feat: Look at the guy normally! Granted, he’s playing a sleazy dude you wouldn’t want to touch with a ten-foot pole, but will it deter any of Farrell’s fans? Part of me doubts it: There have got to be some folks who, upon seeing that Horrible Bosses preview, thought to themselves, “Yep, still hot!”

I, for one, am guilty of still being attracted to stars when they go “ugly.” Exhibit A: Ryan Gosling during the present-day sequences in Blue Valentine. READ FULL STORY

Donald Trump reveals his hair-care regimen: Lather, rinse, do not repeat

Looks like Mean Girls‘ Gretchen Weiners isn’t the only one whose hair is full of secrets.

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump finally explained how he gets his fine golden mane to look like that. While I could just as easily write jokes about Trump’s laughably non-Presidential coif, the comedy really writes itself here. Just read the excerpt from RS below in which you can absolutely hear Trump saying these things in his very Trump-like way. Or better yet, imagine Conan O’Brien saying it as Donald Trump. But, most importantly, never under any circumstances, should you follow this hair regimen, as it involves an hour of drying and watching Morning Joe. Also, it would make you look like Donald Trump:  READ FULL STORY

Julie's creepy TA from 'Friday Night Lights' stars in Lowe's commercial. Have you ever been unable to disassociate actors from their characters?

I can say with the utmost certainty that never before had I been upset by a hardware superstore commercial. Shopping for paint samples is annoying, certainly. But upsetting? Rarely.

That is, until I saw a commercial for Lowe’s that involved actor Gil McKinney. Sure, in the ad he’s just a dude looking for some affordable lawn furniture with his significant other, but all I could see was the creeper T.A. from Friday Night Lights who has been corrupting our dear Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden, pictured here sucking face with said culprit). As soon as I recognized the actor, it was hard not to think, “How can you be buying furniture at a time like this? Don’t you know what you’re putting the Taylor family through? Have you no shame, sir?!” I’m sure Mr. McKinney is a swell fellow in real life, and it’s certainly a testament to his skills as an actor (any FNL fan can attest they got bad vibes from him immediately), but I instantly saw Derek the Creeper T.A. when I saw him. (Sadly, the commercial has not yet made its way onto YouTube yet, so you’ll just have to wait patiently to see it on the old-fashioned television. Fight the urge to rewind!)

I’ve actually had this happen before, though. As I noted in the trailer for the upcoming Mandy Moore flick Love, Wedding, Marriage, as soon as I spotted actor Michael Weston, it was jarring. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': The Cobbs can get through anything!

The headline says it all. The Cobbs can get through anything! I know you’re (probably) not a Cobb, but I have faith you can make it through this recap. So let’s chat “sorry, we still cringe at the title” Cougar Town.

Kirsten was officially planning her move to Chicago. Since locking her to a pipe with a chain was not a valid option, Travis furthered his plan to propose with his great-grandmother’s ring. I must note the rejected plans: 1) Skipping the ring altogether and putting a baby in her. 2) Pimp-whacking her over the head. Yeah, a proposal was really his only option. READ FULL STORY

VH1's 'Famous Food' will show 'celebrities' like Heidi Montag, Danielle Staub launching a restaurant. I wish Gordon Ramsay was involved.

VH1 — creator of “celebrity”-reality shows that the world watches but didn’t ask for — has a new project in the works. Famous Food, premiering in the fall, will give Heidi Montag, Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Danielle Staub, Bachelor doucheboat Jake Pavelka, “singer” Ashley Dupré, and The Sopranos‘ Vincent Pastore, and two rappers from Three 6 Mafia a chance to launch a restaurant. With their collective skills — and hopefully a bucket of Clorox — the 10-episode series will see if they have what it takes to launch a restaurant aptly named Famous Food. After the restaurant’s opening, two experts will decide who is most deserving of a partnership stake.

The only thing I see missing here? Gordon Ramsay. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': 1-855-PENNYCAN. Penny Can!

Cougar Town has been on a way-too-long hiatus so ABC could air Mr. Sunshine in its place. Instead of sunshine, this produced a rather dark, stormy cloud in my life. And while I’m in favor of Courteney Cox’s previous TV husband getting another chance at primetime, I curse the former Mrs. Chanandler Bong for making Cougar Town a distant memory in my TV-centric life.

But because ABC decided to slap out of it and air TWO new episodes this week, I’m willing to let bygones be bygones. ABC, you’re forgiven. Plus, they gave the all-new episode the coveted post-DWTS slot (“Hi Dance Fans, please still be there”). So grab your oversized wine glasses so we can chat about Monday night’s “Walls.” READ FULL STORY

Steve-O of 'Jackass' fame has written a book. What is the proper way to enjoy it?

Stephen Glover, a.k.a. Steve-O, a.k.a. the grinning, tattooed dude who rose to fame as a crash test dummy/circus freak on Jackass, just pulled off one of his most dangerous stunts to date: He wrote a book (with journalist David Peisner). According to the back cover of the advance copy that has arrived in my mailbox, Professional Idiot: A Memoir (June 7, Hyperion) gives you a peek into the life and hard times of the skateboard punk-turned-clown college grad-turned Jackass star, who wound up “routinely risking his life with sharks, lions, tigers, or bears, stapling his nut sack to his leg, or diving into a pool of elephant crap” and spinning out of control in his apartment as he “drank, snorted, huffed, smoked and swallowed drugs around the clock” until his Jackass coconspirator Knoxville led an “an intervention in which eight men forced him into a psychiatric ward against his will, and ultimately saved his life.” (Let’s all take a moment to absorb everything that happened in that sentence.)

Now, I’ve seen the Jackass movie trilogy, the television series, and MTV’s harrowing docu-special Steve-O: Demise and Rise (which chronicled his descent into madness before finding sobriety), but I’ll admit that I’m still interested to glean more insight into his carnivalesque, self-destructive world. That said, we’re talking about a Steve-O book here, and I think we owe it to him to do something appropriately crazy with this book. Herewith, some options:  READ FULL STORY
