After reading Pete Wells’ scathing — and hilarious — review of Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in The New York Times, EWers Denise Warner, Erin Strecker, and Lanford Beard jumped at the chance for a night in Flavor Town. So was it really as bad as Wells’ made it out to be? Well read our post-dinner conversation and watch our reactions to some of the food below! READ FULL STORY

Most mash-up videos that promise “every [insert line/action/moment here]” from a given television show usually have enough time to provide at least a little context for the lines, actions, or moments that are getting singled out. But when your goal is to feature every act of drinking ever on AMC’s Mad Men, it’s apparently best to crank up the zippy jazz and keep things moving as fast as possible. Check it out below and see what we mean: READ FULL STORY
The California sun is like a mythical creature that sucks the soul out of you. And after three hours on an outdoor red carpet and another three hours sitting through a largely predictable Emmy ceremony, the celebs and all their friends were ready for a little fun last night. EW hit up two of the hottest spots in town: Fox’s post-Emmys soirée and the legendary HBO afterparty.
First stop: Fox post-Emmys bash, held at Soleto
Located just minutes from the site of the Emmys — but a trek still worthy of a car ride, especially in heels — word is that this Fox bash was the first major event to be held at Soleto, a 3,000+ square foot space that opened this summer. By day it’s a pizza bar; by night, it’s a swanky maze of a venue that provided a nice mix of larger open spaces and slightly darkened corners for more intimate socializing. Spotted in a cranny? The pint-sized half of Modern Family‘s cast, who were all generally spotted in pairs. There was no breaking up that Emmy-adorned family. READ FULL STORY
'The X Factor': Britney Spears sings 'Happy Birthday' to L.A. Reid while America holds its breath (to blow out the candles)
Some people say it with flowers, but true superstars — who are goaded into reality TV filler stunts by lick-lipping producers who can’t wait to tap into that icing — sing it with cake. Here’s Britney Spears wishing her X Factor colleague, seat-dancing specialist L.A. Reid, a happy birthday. AND SHE’S SINGING!
L.A. first utters a low-toned “Oh my God” (at the fact that Britney Spears is serving a cake, seemingly of her own volition), then transitions to a more intrigued, upward-lilting “Oh my God!” (at the fact that Britney is really giving it her all with the singing). Watch a new American classic here: READ FULL STORY
Starting the day with eggs from Martha Stewart’s Bedford, N.Y., farm? Now that‘s a good thing. To preview her upcoming Cooking School, the domestic mogul hosted an intimate demonstration at her New York City HQ today.
Entering the event, I must admit that I feared even putting myself in the sightline of La Stewart would send me into a tizzy akin to Ellen DeGeneres in her hilariously chaotic 1995 Thanksgiving episode of Ellen. Then came the aforementioned eggs, the homemade jams (blueberry, raspberry, and cherry), and the caramelized grapefruit (with a candied blood orange garnish — obviously)… and let’s just say Martha knows that the way to ease the nerves is through a glorious food coma.

It isn’t every day I get a severed foot in the mail. Not since I moved out of New Jersey, anyway. (Only joking! I’ve never lived in New Jersey.) Anyhoo, yesterday I did receive a highly realistic but allegedly edible lower extremity to promote the release this Friday of Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the hugely successful zombie franchise which stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Boris Kodjoe, and Colin Salmon, amongst others.
Now, I could have taste-tested the said food myself. But, being a generous fellow, I thought I would gift it to our hardworking interns and let them report back. You can read their assessments — and view a selection of comical, fake foot-eating pics — below.
This summer, country singer Dierks Bentley had his 10th No. 1 hit with the footstomper “5-1-5-0,” which has helped keep the crowds rockin’ on his Country & Cold Cans Tour. Inspired by their, let’s call it enthusiasm, and the desire to give college students new music for their end-of-summer parties and fall football tailgates, he paid for studio time himself to record some new tunes. The result is his Country & Cold Cans EP, which includes four new songs — the title track, “Grab a Beer,” “Back Porch,” and “Summer on Fire” — and the radio edit of his similarly suds-soaked current single, “Tip it on Back,” from his album Home. “I think the fans will dig the sound. It’s a little grittier, a little different,” Bentley says. “There’s some hand clips, some beatin’ on things. It’s just fun for me to get a chance to do something different every now and then.”
Listen to our exclusive stream of “Back Porch” below. (Think of it as Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” for people who don’t live near a lake). Then, we asked Bentley to name five of his craziest summer memories. Lucky for us, he documented most of them — including an awesome band vs. crew Braveheart reenactment — in his web series, DBTV. Country & Cold Cans will be released Aug. 21 on iTunes. READ FULL STORY
Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!
What is your damage, Katy Perry? You’re making me feel like a hard old bitch.
Until yesterday my impression of you had been somewhat vague, a smattering of visuals and a strong if nonsensical set of aural hooks. If I heard your name, I’d think of rainbow sherbet , hot dogs that are really people, Snoop Dogg rolling a pair of sugarcube dice, and gummy bears come to life. Basically a child’s, or stoner’s, paradise. (If you did a “Downtempo Snaxxx Remix” of each hit single, by the way, you could easily corner another segment of the population.) I’m pretty sure I could pick your voice out of a police lineup, for crimes against candy. And without even trying, I somehow know all of your singles. Are there drugs in those? I hear them once and by the second go-round I’m BELTING them like some wall-licking beast.
