Lady Gaga Lifetime movie: Please, God no!... (Okay, when will it air?)

Lady Gaga has a new album and a new duet partner — why not a new made-for-TV movie?

Sources tell EW that Lifetime plans to develop Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story, as originally reported by Deadline. Points for the title, Lifetime, but this unauthorized project sounds like a failure before takeoff. It’s based on the (unauthorized) book Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga by New York Post scribe Maureen Callahan, and without Lady Gaga’s involvement, it’s likely the overcoming-obstacles montage is going to have nondescript pump-up music as opposed to, you know, one of her hits.

Now, Lifetime movies can go one of two ways: Either so bad it’s good (William and Kate) or so bad it’s horrific (pretty much everything else). Gaga clearly has an obsessively loyal fan base that’ll tune in out of curiosity, which I’m sure is what cable channel Lifetime is hoping. READ FULL STORY

Kardashians to co-host fourth hour of 'Today' all next week. Who else needs a drink?

Prepare yourselves: Next week on the fourth hour of Today, Khloe Kardashian will co-host with Hoda Kotb on Funday, Bruce Jenner on Boozeday, Kris Jenner on Winesday, Kourtney Kardashian on Thirstday, and Kim Kardashian on Dryday. But who will join me when I marathon the shows on KillMyselfday?

You gotta hand it to the Kardashians. If they’re not appearing in the news, they’ll literally make themselves appear on the news. First person to convince me there’s still hope for this world wins permission to destroy my television on Oct. 10.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger gives controversial, uh, 'advice' during 'Watch What Happens' visit

If you tuned in for the season 5 premiere of Watch What Happens Live Sunday night, you watched horrified host Andy Cohen listen to Millionaire Matchmaker‘s Patti Stanger giving advice making judgments and sweeping generalizations about the gay community.

While visiting the Bravo talk show, Stanger took calls from fans, including one man who asked what her feelings were on open, long-distance relationships. After giving a vague, not-entirely-helpful answer (“Long distance relationships are great because they go faster and are quicker to close to a serious [relationship], almost marriage”), Stanger then asked the caller if he was gay. Not that that should matter, right PopWatchers? If a straight person called with the same question Stanger would give the same response, right? Wrong! We are so very wrong. READ FULL STORY

'Abduction': Hilariously bad movie makes for fun moviegoing experience. It's the new 'Swimfan'!

There’s so much about Abduction, the new Taylor Lautner thriller, that’s appalling, fascinating, and unintentionally hilarious. Abduction is a pretty bad movie, but after my showing — set in a theater about half full (I’m being optimistic!) — pretty much everyone left in a good mood. In fact, I’d even recommend the film to most of my friends. It was bad in such a blatant way that it didn’t feel insulting, and it certainly wasn’t boring. After half an hour, I stopped paying close attention the plot, because it made no sense whatsoever and was riddled with holes, but the many jaw-droppingly awkward moments drew delighted ridicule from the audience. For all the wrong reasons, Abduction is sparkling entertainment. I’ll throw up a SPOILER ALERT here, but honestly, it doesn’t matter if I give anything away any major twists — you’ll be surprised by plenty regardless. READ FULL STORY

Man breaks his own leg to survive in canyon where '127 Hours' is set. Should some movies tell us to 'not try this at home'?

There’s a reason I’ll never work on a swordfishing boat, hike the Alaskan wilderness without food or supplies, or trudge up Mount Doom with a greedy little mutant hobbit in tow. It’s because film — and, in two of these cases, real life — has told me that these are very dangerous feats. Yet, it seems Hollywood still hasn’t convinced some people — one man in particular recently found himself mimicking one film’s petrifying premise. The Associated Press reports that 64-year-old Amos Wayne Richards survived four days alone in the Utah desert after breaking a leg and dislocating his shoulder on a hike — in the exact same canyon in which 127 Hours took place.

'Child Bride' Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison sign reality show deal. Do we want to get to know them?

If you’re an enthusiastic supporter of tweets like this (random excerpt: “…drenched in a soak ‘n wet white mini-T & pink panties…”) and this: (random excerpt: “…it’s gonna be a WOUGH ‘n WILD one!…”), then you will be very pleased to learn that “child bride” Courtney Stodden and former Dharma Initiative employee Doug Hutchison have inked a deal to star in their own reality show. (If you have avoided the Internet over the last five months, or happened to miss one of the most unsettling Good Morning America segments in recent history, know that then 16-year-old Stodden married the 51-year-old Hutchison back in May, resulting in a media frenzy over their 35-year age difference.)

Banca Studios will produce the project, and the head of the production company, Roy Bank, told EW that the show will be Stodden and Hutchison’s “chance to let people meet them… to hopefully let people get to know the real them.” But do people really want to get to know “the real them”? (I put this in quotes because, as a colleague recently expressed, Stodden could be mistaken for a 30-year-old. If the world is just, then all of this is just a cruel, sick joke.) READ FULL STORY

Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls leaves a bad taste in an American Family Association group's mouth

The American Family Association affiliate One Million Moms is vehemently against Fair Trade vanilla ice cream mixed with a hint of rum, fudge covered rum balls, and milk chocolate malt balls. That can be the only reasonable explanation for their crusade against Ben & Jerry’s latest flavor, the Saturday Night Live-inspired ice cream Schweddy Balls.

Actually, One Million Moms is calling for a boycott of the flavor for because of its “vulgar” title. In the opening paragraph, the group complains, “Schweddy Balls is the best they could come up with.” Valid point, “No one can resist my Schweddy Balls” would have been way funnier. READ FULL STORY

Best Headline of the Day: 'Nicolas Cage awoken by naked man with Fudgesicle'

Okay. I’M SORRY Nicolas Cage was Trespass-ed against years ago and had to live through a real-life home invasion by a naked man who loved Fudgesicles. That sounds terrible and the part about the leather jacket is not helping, either. But since this Reuters story produced my favorite sentence on the Internet today…  READ FULL STORY

Kate Gosselin lands on Anderson Cooper's RidicuList for her babysitter blowout, general awfulness

If this clip of Kate Gosselin garnered this kind of reaction from Anderson Cooper, one can only imagine/look forward to what Joel McHale will have to say about it. During last night’s Anderson Cooper 360, the silver fox wasn’t having it with dreadful reality TV mom Kate Gosselin and rightly placed her on his RidicuList. Only this time, no one was laughing. Not Gosselin, who was pissed off at her babysitter Ashley for… something; not Steve the Security Guard whose slice of “reserved pizza” (you can do that?!) was handed to him by the peasant hands of a lowly child; not babysitter Ashley who reached her breaking point with her harpy employer; and definitely not Cooper, who documented the Kate Plus 8 moment for his viewers with total contempt. His reaction at 2:39 really says it all, doesn’t it, PopWatchers? Watch the full clip below: READ FULL STORY
