Let the awkwardness begin! Watch Annie and Darren's Comic-Con 2011 Longest Hug Challenge

There are many contests at which I could NOT beat my esteemed colleague Darren Franich. Arcane superhero-sequels trivia, tennis (probably?), knowing anything about comic books whatsoever. But could I possibly whip this overachiever’s skinny ass if the competition was called See Who Can Awkwardly Hug Comic-Con Fans the Longest? Press play below to find out! READ FULL STORY

Heat wave! Classic moments in pop culture melting

I’m melting, PopWatchers, melllllllllting. That’s because today, on the concrete island of Manhattan, it is roughly 10,000 (give or take a few thousand) degrees outside. If the Big Apple looks extra shiny today, it’s only because the unforgiving sun has turned us into sweaty, smelly, cranky puddles of our former selves.

Still, New Yorkers (and everyone else around the country suffering from these oppressive temps) are hardly the first to fry faster than an egg. Of course, there’s arguably the most famous moment in pop-culture melting, the aforementioned cries of the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz, but what about some of the other classic moments in liquefying? Here’s a rundown of some of the best: READ FULL STORY

Ryan Gosling: Tell me, Jimmy, have you even been in a Turkish bath?

Ryan Gosling continues his talk show tour for Crazy, Stupid, Love, and last night’s visit with Jimmy Fallon was another memorable stop. He brought his “muppet” dog George (who insists on having a Mohawk; when the hair starts to grow out George becomes a jerk, Gosling insists) and recounted a visit to a Turkish bath in his new home, New York City. Watch it below. In short: It was a painful experience that resulted in Gosling licking his masseuse’s belly after it went in his mouth (“Don’t judge me, but you know how when you eat something weird your brain sends your tongue to investigate?” he asked) and a lot of tipping.

In the second clip, Gosling attempts to explain his new movie. READ FULL STORY

'Lost' actor Doug Anthony Hutchinson and teen bride Courtney Stodden talk to 'GMA'. So this is love?

During their oh-so-unsettling appearance on Good Morning America on Friday (they were doing this to try and help their image, correct?) Lost actor Doug Anthony Hutchinson and his 16-year-old wife, aspiring model/singer Courtney Stodden wanted us to know their love is as real as her “head to toe … R-I-double L” body. And not only are they rilly, rilly in love (the two claim their courtship began online, which was monitored by her mother), but Hutchinson is really just “51 going on 21.” (You’re getting warmer, guys!)

Of course, that wasn’t reason enough for some of the people closest to Hutchinson. While Stodden’s family gave their blessing, Hutchinson’s mother and brother have cut ties, as well as his manager and agent, who have dropped him as a client since the wedding. And despite harsh words from the Internet, death threats, and Stodden having to leave high school because she was being bullied about her looks, the couple are going to power through while they shop around for a reality series and Hutchinson writes — wait for it — a children’s book series.

You can watch the full clip below, in which Stodden tells Lara Spencer how marrying Hutchinson would be nothing more than a convenient “blessing” to help her career, and Hutchinson explains how he didn’t go to jail for their relationship. Now, some fair warning, PopWatchers: You can’t un-see the faces Stodden makes at Hutchinson from 4:48-4:57, so view at your own risk. READ FULL STORY

Why, Rob Lowe? Why?!

Oh no! Rob Lowe is totally going through with playing accused wife-killer Drew Peterson in an upcoming Lifetime thriller, and look at what they’ve done to him! The Parks and Rec star lit-ruh-lly looks like a cross between Sam Elliott and my dad. I mean, I love my dad. I might love Rob Lowe even more. But our overall analysis of People.com‘s exclusive photo of “Drew” from Untouchable? EWWWWWW.com. Plus, the 47-year-old (or 42 on TV, much to Chris Traeger’s dismay) is not quite pulling off age 57. Good for him?

You guys. What if Rob Lowe WAS YOUR DAD? Stew on that for the weekend.

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.)

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

'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
