Eddie Cibrian, star of NBC’s new fall drama The Playboy Club, is, one must admit, an excellent model for Charisma, a luxury home brand that includes bedding, robes, bath rugs, and towels. For the fall 2011 campaign, he was photographed in bed, of course, and while those shots are worth looking at (check them out here, along with a behind-the-scenes video in which Cibrian is half-naked but hearing compliments like, “Look at those sheets! Ohmygod!”), it’s the bathtub shots that make me happy. I love when male celebrities agree to be photographed in a bathtub because it always feels so random even if it isn’t. See: Colin Firth and David Boreanaz. Therefore, I’m adding Cibrian’s shoot to my list of Great Pop Culture Moments in Bathtubs, which, my editor Mike Bruno said I could blog “only if you include the ‘When Doves Cry’ video, which starts with doves opening double doors to a purple misty room containing Prince in a tub. As Morris Day would say, ‘So sexy!'” So, we have that. What else should be on this list? Other colleagues have nominated Fatal Attraction, Scarface, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Pretty Woman. Off the top of my head, my submissions would include:

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
This morning, the name and bottle for Taylor Swift’s first “signature scent” hitting stores in October were revealed. The name Wonderstruck comes from a lyric in one of her songs. “I wrote the lyric, ‘I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home,’ for the song ‘Enchanted’ about the first time you meet someone,” she says in a release. “A fragrance can help shape someone’s first impression and memory of you. It’s exciting to think that Wonderstruck will play a role in creating some of those memories.” That’s the best justification we’ve heard for a celebrity scent in a long while.
Per the announcement, the actual scent, which Swift developed with Olivier Gillotin of Givaudan, was inspired by her favorite memories and smells. “The flawless beauty of freesia, apple blossom and raspberry spark a swirl of vibrancy and feminine allure…. In the heart, a sweet surprise of blissful vanilla is embellished by airy, sun drenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus…. Notes of golden amber and sandalwood are woven with a kiss of lush peach.” READ FULL STORY
I live in L.A. now, PopWatchers, so naturally I’ve become a completely different person. Last week, in a stunning departure from the norm, I allowed STRANGERS to manhandle my neglected fingernails and got a manicure over at The Painted Nail. Don’t worry, there was a work reason! The salon doubles as the set for TV Guide Network’s reality show Nail Files. (The new series, from Jersey Shore exec producer SallyAnn Salsano, scored with 1.1 million viewers and triple digit increases among female viewers when it premiered June 22.)
Salon owner Katie Cazorla, 33, is severely wacky — but in a great way, because at least she’s not faking some act for TV. “I thought reality TV shows were for slutty girls who have no self-esteem and like to drink. I love to drink but I’m not gonna have cocktails and make out with some random guy in a hot tub. That was my 20s.” Below, Katie offers up five reasons — one for each finger — to tune into episode 4 tonight (10 p.m. ET/PT).
5. (pinky) “I bust out an old school gymnastics move for Candace Cameron. I used to love DJ and Stephanie Tanner from Full House! Have you seen her? She’s like a size zero. How does she do that?” READ FULL STORY
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.
What’s the best email subject line we’ve read today? “Nick Offerman’s beard saves the planet.” The Parks and Recreation star, a.k.a. Ron Swanson, has teamed up with Budweiser to promote its “Grow One. Save a Million” campaign, which encourages men to grow beards as awesome as his — and therefore conserve water — in advance of World Environment Day (this Sunday, June 5). According to Budweiser, on average, a man uses 5 gallons of water every time he shaves. The company hopes enough men will take the pledge to put down the razor to save one million gallons of water.
“The only thing manlier than growing a big, burly beard is ripping a big, burly beard off of a charging grizzly with your bare hands,”
Swanson Offerman says in a release. READ FULL STORY
