'Dancing With the Stars': Derek Hough on dancing with Jennifer Grey and shirtless paparazzi snaps

derek-houghImage Credit: MAP/Splash News; Adam Larkey/ABCDance pro Derek Hough, 25, and his partner Jennifer Grey, 50, earned the top spot on last week’s Dancing With the Stars season 11 performance premiere with a Viennese waltz set to “These Arms of Mine” (a song featured on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack). Below, Derek checks in for his weekly grilling.

Derek, where are you going in this photo? Do you think the rule “No shirt no shoes no service” does not apply to you?
We were actually at rehearsal and I was super sweaty and needed to change my shirt. Jennifer had hidden my clothes, though, so I was forced to walk out to the parking lot to my car for a change of clothes without a shirt on. I will get her back though. Someday, when she least expects it.

Are you aware that your belt is not exactly doing its job here?

As long as my pants are not on the ground, the belt is succeeding. READ FULL STORY

Ian Somerhalder (a.k.a. the Sexy Beast Champion) talks 'Vampire Diaries' season 2

ian-somerhalder-vampire-diariesImage Credit: Patrick Ecclesine / The CWThe Vampire Diaries has been good to Ian Somerhalder: It earned him a spot on Entertainment Weekly’s 2009 list of TV’s Best Bitches and the title of Sexiest Beast in this summer’s popular EW.com bracket game, which saw readers rack up more than 1.5 million votes while whittling the 64-deep field down to his devilishly delicious Damon Salvatore and Twilight‘s saintly sensitive Edward Cullen. Shortly after his victory last month, we caught up with a humbled and grateful Somerhalder, who was already feeling the pressure that comes with the crown…

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations on Damon being named the ultimate Sexy Beast.
[Laughs] That is so cool.

What would you like to say to the people who voted for you?
Thank you, thank you, thank you. It makes you realize the dedication of the fans, how much fun they’re having and how much fun they make us have. It’s the fans who are making the success of the show happen. We can’t thank them enough. We’re just doing the acting leg of it. Season 2 is starting [Sept. 9, 8 p.m. ET, The CW], and we’re gonna try not to suck. Wow, that’s a terrible pun. Let me reword that. You finish the first season of the show, and everyone worked their asses off, and the season went really well, and people liked the show. But then season 2 comes up, and you realize, whoa, we have more of a responsibility now. The heat is really on now. We cannot do a bad job. So, we are committed to making this a better year of television than last year. So that’s what I want to tell everyone: “Thank you, and literally, we’ll try not to suck.” [Laughs] READ FULL STORY

'Prison Break' creator, McG plot pop-culture savvy private eye drama for ABC

Magnum-PI-simon-and-simonImage Credit: Everett CollectionThis could be awesome: McG and Prison Break creator Paul T. Scheuring are developing I, PI – an hour-long drama about a private investigator who learned everything he knows about his chosen profession from favorite childhood shows like Magnum, P.I. and Simon & Simon, and subconsciously emulates the TV sleuths on the job – for ABC. A rep for Scheuring confirms he’s writing the pilot script, which McG (Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation) is hoping to direct if it gets picked up. I’m loving this for multiple reasons: 1) McG also helmed the Chuck pilot, to which I imagine I, PI will have a similar irreverent tone. 2) It sounds like a role tailor-made for someone as charming as Castle‘s Nathan Fillion — and who doesn’t want to see more of that kind of man on TV? (I’m feeling Friday night, not because I’d want ABC to bury it, but because it’s the kind of show I’d want to watch at the end of a week that’s left me too exhausted to go anywhere but my couch. I suspect other viewers old enough to remember Magnum and Simon & Simon are working just as hard.)

Based on the little information we have, who could you see playing the PI if it gets a pilot order? And what inspiration would you like him to draw from Thomas Magnum and Rick and A.J. Simon? Magnum’s short shorts, no. Rick’s penchant for heavage, yes. (Magnum was set in Hawaii and Simon & Simon in San Diego, so we expect the guy to have picked a locale in which he can tan.) For inspiration, we’ve embedded the pilot of the shows below. Head to Hulu to watch full episodes of Simon & Simon and Magnum, P.I. Suddenly hoping for rain this holiday weekend? READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' recap: 'I just drank cigarettes.'

jersey-shore-episode-6Image Credit: MTVWhen last night’s episode began with Snooki taking off her sombrero just long enough to vom her cigarette into the bushes while accidentally mooning the camera, you probably figured you and Jersey Shore were in for a quiet night. (Maybe you opened up a bottle of rosé, or turned on some light jazz.) After that act of splendid debasement, Shnookums decided she needed a bed with a man in it. First, she tried Pauly’s bed…but it was too hair gel-y. Second, she tried The Situation’s bed…but it was too six-packy. Finally, she tried Vinny’s bed… and it was juuuussst right. Little did Snooki realize that Vinny is DTS, which means “Down to Snuggle” and is “STD” backwards. Smushing ensued. By way of play-by-play, Snooki gifted us this nightmare: “It’s like putting a watermelon in a pinhole.”

So far, so silly. But viewers, what followed was a true tale of humanity, of misunderstood motives, of sister turning against sister. It was a tragedy of errors. READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' recap: Smashes, ashes, Ron falls down. And Sammi's babies wrote her a letter

Jersey-Shore-boysImage Credit: Emily Shur/MTVWelcome back to Jersey Shore, bitches! This week, the stage was set for the attention to hone in on Snooki and her long-distance “boyfriend” Emilio, who lives in a bar. But Sammi — that bitch! — swiped the spotlight as usual because her dysfunctional relationship is playing out in the correct (U.S., but not mental) state. Ronnie’s been creeping and the girls have decided Sammi should know. But instead of just telling her, Snooki and JWoww decide to type her a letter in a “cybr cafe” because they are apparently study-abroad students in the late ’90s. They plan to drop the letter in her “drawww” (drawer) to avoid conflict, which should definitely work because why would Sammi suspect that a letter hidden in her bedroom might have come from inside the house?

I was thinking J&S should have considered mailing the letter, but it is probably dangerous to assume that they know their own address. And how would they find a stamp? They’d probably need to drive to the airport or something. And who has the time? It’s an hour-long show. Join me for more insightful Jersey Shore commentary — and screengrabs! — after the break. No grenades, okay? Show some respect for the house. Love you bitches. READ FULL STORY

'Dating in the Dark' photo recap: Coming together

Even if you stuck it out for two more hours of ABC’s Bachelor Pad, chances are you immediately changed the channel during the promo for 10 p.m.’s dazzler, Dating in the Dark. It’s okay! I would have done the same thing in an alternate life in which I was not self-punishing and insane. You know the drill. New cast each episode; three guys and three girls feel around in the darkness and occasionally converse to see if they like each other’s “personalities.” Dating in the Dark is a total crapfest that can best be recapped via pictures. Ironic, don’t you think? Because they’re in the dark.

'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night' trailer: Do not touch the face!

Having not read the Dylan Dog comic book series, I can’t comment on whether the film, starring Brandon Routh as the “ace detective of the undead,” looks like a solid adaptation. I can just say that as Routh’s Dylan Dog fights to keep order between the worlds of vampires, werewolves, humans, and zombies, I hope they all respect the beauty of that face and leave it the way they found it. Also, watching the trailer (below), the body shop scene gave me a Beetlejuice vibe, while the vampire baddie Taye Diggs plays led me to believe that he really wanted to be in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie (the graveyard has a similar feel, no?) and TV series but wasn’t clever enough. That said, they had me at the shirtless shot. READ FULL STORY

Lunchtime Poll: Dress you up in 'Mad Men,' 'Glee,' or 'Jersey Shore,' all over, all over (your real pecs)

It’s a landmark day for fashion! There’s a Glee-inspired juniors line from Macy’s launching this weekend, Jersey Shore Halloween costumes are available for pre-order RIGHT NOW, and Mad Men‘s 10-day charity auction — including dresses worn by Betty, Joan, and Bobbie Barrett (ugh) — begins today.

I’ll phrase today’s Lunchtime Poll in the style of its inspiration, Heathers (which I probably should have been doing this whole time):

That’s pretty very. Now check this out. You win five million dollars from Publishers Sweepstakes, but on the same day what’s-his-face gives you the check, aliens land on earth and say they’re going to blow up the world in two days unless you spend all of it on hoodies from Macy’s, skanksuits à la Snooki, or dresses from Mad Men. What would you do?

Vote below and let us know if our readership is as trashy as we suspect!

'Vampire Diaries' exec producers endorse Ian Somerhalder in our Sexy Beasts Bracket Game

sexy-beast-Alex-IanWith polls set to close at midnight ET in their section of EW’s Sexy Beasts Bracket Game, The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) has a commanding lead over True Blood‘s Eric Northman with 61 percent of the vote in their quarterfinal match-up. We happened to be chatting with Vampire Diaries exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec this afternoon, and gave them the update. They both (eventually) endorsed Damon and explained why Katherine (Nina Dobrev) will be a contender after the Sept. 9 season 2 premiere (“Katherine in a bra, episode 1, tune in”)…

Entertainment Weekly: Damon is beating the pants off of Eric in our Sexy Beasts Bracket Game.

Julie Plec: [Gasps] Oh, we have made it!

Kevin Williamson: What?

Plec: [Explains Sexy Beasts Bracket Game to Williamson, she voted last round] Ian is beating Eric. I love it. By the way, Eric — hot.

Williamson: Eric who? From True Blood? Ohmygod. I’m sorry, I’m voting for Eric. I love Ian, but I see him everyday. [Laughs] I don’t see Eric. I can vote for Eric, right? READ FULL STORY

Lunchtime Poll: Beast-Beast or Human-Beast?

A very hairy debate has heated up in today’s Sexy Beast matchups post. Our commenter-beasts are roaring at each other within the PopWatch castle walls — shaking their manes, baring their fangs, chasing their own tails as old as time! Even I don’t know what that means.

The question: Which variation from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is hotter: Beast-Beast or Human-Beast? The answer has been so obvious to me (Beast-Beast!) for two decades that it pains me to even ask. But ask I shall, because I am truly intrigued by those of you who find Human-Beast more attractive. Explain yourselves! And before you do, please note that a quick IMDB search indicates that Human-Beast’s name was “Prince Adam” (?!) and that the weird line above his obscenely unbuttoned homeless-resortwear blouse is not an eyelash on your computer screen or a lame tattoo intended to humorously offset his one strand of jagged hair. Nope. It is cleavage. There it is.
