What could Downton Abbey, Jersey Shore, and Real Housewives possibly have in common? As we exclusively previewed Tuesday, Downton was just the latest TV series to be parodied on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Last night’s PBS spoof Downton Sixbey, named after Late Night‘s Studio 6B, was indeed a Classic — if only for the surprise cameo by an SNL favorite as the alterna-version of Lady Edith. But who will be the heir to Downton Sixbey? Find out below. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Kim Kardashian (61-70 of 108)
Khloe Kardashian takes a lot of krap. On SNL, she’s been lampooned as the K-sister who’s neither smart nor pretty. She’s also regularly ridiculed for being person-sized, unlike Kim and Kourtney, who wear lentils as hats and hang glide with a Dorito. But we at EW have always believed that Khloe is the most likeable member of her family — or the most tolerable.
Case in point: A relaxed, smiley Khloe stopped by Ellen today. She proceeded to charm us with an Ashley Judd-ian defense of her body, as well as quips about her sister’s brief marriage (“I feel like they’ve been getting divorced longer than they were married”). Khloe also weighed in on the unholy alliance of Kim and Kanye West. Though she “likes” Kimye as a couple name — oh, Khloe, just when we were starting to warm to you! — she was reluctant to say too much about the relationship: “I think they’re cute together,” Khloe told Ellen Degeneres. “But honey, I don’t know. You’ve got to get her on the show and ask.”
Watch Khloe talk Kimye — and get in a few bonus digs at Kris Humphries — below, then tell us: Are you prepared to like a Kardashian? READ FULL STORY
Kimye: It might be the most annoying A-list power couple moniker since Bennifer. Despite Kanye West’s over-the-counter ode to Kim Kardashian, the reality star kept mostly mum about her relationship with the bombastic rapper during a visit to the Today show this morning, save to say that they’re longtime friends and “You never know what the future holds or where my life will take me.”
Oh yeah, and The Hunger Games (the movie she saw on a reported date with West) was “really interesting.”
Jon who? Though currently embroiled in the most important semi-feud between two ridiculously attractive people since Sarah Hyland made fun of Lea Michele that one time in September, Kim Kardashian proved that she was totally over Jon Hamm by tweeting a smiley picture that gratuitously peddled her own hams. “Can’t sleep tonight…” was the winking caption she put on an Instagram photo boasting an impish grin that totally suggested the opposite. Who looks that happy when they’re suffering from sleep deprivation? I’m going to guess that Kim got at least seven hours last night.
Upon further research, evidence has emerged suggesting that Kim’s tweet was actually — get this — promotional. You see, the long-awaited Kardashian Kollection lingerie kollection has hit Sears, and the super-skintastic ad campaign was posted on sister Khloe’s website yesterday. “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!?” Khloe wondered. “Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL.” READ FULL STORY
Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli's split hits reality: Can they learn from other failed-on-reality-TV relationships?
90210 vet Jennie Garth and Twilight star Peter Facinelli announced their divorce yesterday after 11 years of marriage. The divorce will be dealt with on new CMT reality show Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country, slated to premiere April. But how? To be sure, Garth and Facinelli are not the first reality TV couple to fail in front of a camera. What can they learn from those the split before them? READ FULL STORY
Not a “Mad Man,” so much as a “Mildly Miffed Man” (doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it?). Jon Hamm has responded to the reaction from Kim Kardashian regarding a statement he made to the U.K. edition of Elle. “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” Hamm told the magazine. “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly…. It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.” (We have no idea what he could possibly be referencing.)
Kardashian took offense to the statement and spoke her mind on Twitter, telling followers, “I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless.” (As of press time, there’s still no reaction from “Paris Hilton…or whoever.”)
So how did Hamm address Kim’s umbrage? Find out below.

You’d think that by now Kim Kardashian might be used to this sort of thing. After all, the ubiquitous reality star has earned her fair share of criticism about everything from her 72-day marriage to her offensively exorbitant lifestyle to her family’s general terribleness. Having already been called a ‘f—ing idiot’ by Daniel Craig, Kim should have suspected that other classy, handsome Hollywood gents might feel the same way. In fact, in an interview with Elle UK Jon Hamm found the same words for her. (And Paris Hilton, for that matter. Remember her, you guys? Guys?)
“Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” the Mad Men star told the magazine, adding, “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly….It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

Amnesty International's Secret Policeman's Ball: Statler, Waldorf, Blue Steel, and comics' picks for Funniest Person Alive
The British invaded Radio City Music Hall for the American debut of Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball. The comedy benefit has been raising money for AI since 1976, when Monty Python alum John Cleese co-created the series. The celebrity-saturated roster made for a packed Music Hall as several American faves (plenty of Saturday Night Live stars, Rashida Jones, Paul Rudd, Sarah Silverman, to name a few) plus big-name Brits (Russell Brand, Eddie Izzard, and John Oliver) took the stage. Epix broadcast the event live last night, and it will be available on their site tomorrow. Until then, we single out a few of the night’s best moments and share the stars’ picks for Funniest Person Alive. READ FULL STORY
When I clapped eyes on the Kardashians’ topless blue jeans ad today, my mind immediately circled back around to an image that I’ve held near and dear to my heart for going on eight years. Behold, at right, the worst picture in America’s Next Top Model history. Suffice it to say, competition has been strong. This season alone, show creator/host Tyra Banks forced the girls to pose with relish-and-mustard-dripping Pink’s hot dogs and another in a giant bowl of Greek salad. And still, this picture is just horrrrrrrible. It is the posing equivalent of a 10-car pile-up. READ FULL STORY
