'Jersey Shore' Hurricane Sandy benefit: Donate dollars, get a call from Snooki

Gym, tan, rebuild New Jersey?

It doesn’t have quite the same ring as GTL — but that’s the goal of the Jersey Shore cast’s upcoming “Restore the Shore” benefit, which airs tomorrow at 11 p.m. on MTV. The network just announced a slew of new details about the event, revealing that it’s no ordinary telethon.

Instead of urging viewers to call in their donations in hopes of speaking to a celebrity, “Restore the Shore” asks donors to send in money via their Indiegogo site. MTV stars from shows like Awkward, Teen Wolf, and, of course, Jersey Shore will then personally call donors during the fundraiser to thank them for their contributions. READ FULL STORY

Taylor Lautner's Madame Tussauds wax figure will not be shirtless

taylor-lautner-clay.jpg

Two years after Robert Pattinson’s wax figure was unveiled, Taylor Lautner is finally getting his due. Madame Tussauds New York will unveil Lautner’s wax figure on Nov. 15 at 11 a.m. ET. Pictured is the clay sculpture that artists used to create the mold and cast of his head. We have definite stubble. As for what clothing Lautner will be immortalized in, the press release says he’s “styled in a tailored charcoal grey suit and black dress shirt with an open collar.” I suppose that’s more timeless than a soft charcoal grey T-shirt underneath a soft black leather jacket, which could be removed in the summer months to showcase his biceps. Not that I’ve given this any thought.

Your Hidden Gems of Election 2012!

CNN definitely coordinated its “true blue state” shade with the exact color of Anderson Cooper’s icy hot eyes, right? RIGHT?

Who says EW.com’s Hidden Gems franchise needs to be limited to Dancing With the Stars coverage? Usually me, but I’m feeling democratic today. I’ll be compiling fun screenshots of election coverage throughout the night, so go ahead and send in the screen gems — noteworthy quirks that are not necessarily the main focus of the telecast — you notice yourselves.

'N Sync replaces Justin Timberlake with Matthew Morrison in Halloween photo

Merely 12 days after Justin Timberlake banned his boy band from his wedding, the boys are striking back. While attending Glee star Matthew Morrison’s third annual Halloween bash, Lance Bass and J.C. Chasez posed with a JT-becostumed Mr. Schuester. Seems innocent enough, right? Wrong.

Meet Kay D'Arcy, the 79-year-old action hero who can kick your butt

You don’t know the name Kay D’Arcy. But you will. Like most aspiring actors, she moved to Hollywood over a decade ago and struggled for years to make it big. Over the protests of her family, D’Arcy kept at it and finally got her break with a Kickstarter project known as Agent 88. Now she’s on the brink of stardom. The catch? She’s 79 years old.

D’Arcy is the subject of a new profile in the Los Angeles Times chronicling her meteoric rise to fame as the octogenarian Jackie Chan. In the upcoming web series Agent 88, she plays an assassin who keeps her weapons in her hair and can deliver a mean roundhouse kick (seriously). It’s superb timing, really — as we reported back in September, there’s a female Expendables project in the works, and who better to lead it than D’Arcy? Here are the top three reasons she’s perfect for The Expendabelles:

Penis enlargement, Twitter pranks and a love child: A brief history of lawsuits involving Justin Bieber

For most, turning 18 means being able to buy lottery ticket or vote. For Justin Bieber, it meant he became the target of a wealth of lawsuits ranging from the strange to the, um, very strange.

Take this latest case: TMZ has obtained a copy of a lawsuit filed in Michigan wherein a man claims that Bieber purchased a penis enlargement with a stolen credit card. And that’s not even the craziest part! He also impregnated the man’s “daughter” Selena Gomez on his “Canadian bear rug,” gave Gomez an STD, and used the man’s stolen American Express card to pay for an abortion.

In honor of this surprisingly detailed lawsuit, we’ve compiled a timeline of all the legal action involving Bieber.

Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show: Who should guest star with her?

As Beyoncé herself has now said: It’s Countdown to Touchdown.

Beyoncé will officially (via a killer image on her website) be the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII. This isn’t Queen Bey’s first time around the biggest football event of the year – she sang the National Anthem before the game in 2004.

This is a great decision both from the Super Bowl organizer’s perspective and viewer’s: After the infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2004, the Super Bowl people (sports talk!) have played it safe with Talented Old Guy choices such as Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones. Last year, things got a little more risqué – Madonna kept things fun, but her special guest M.I.A. got some feathers ruffled with a misplaced middle finger. Beyoncé is the perfect choice: She’s “down with the young people,” but she is also the consummate professional who isn’t going to swear or do any other kind of ratings stunt. With moves like these, she has no need to.

Of course, while Beyoncé is a show all by herself, we couldn’t help but think of who else might be showing up. See our five best guesses – and suggest your own – below. READ FULL STORY

Is 'Laughing Joe Biden' the Democrats' 'Big Bird' moment?

Sorry, Big Bird. The Internet is leaving you for an older man.

After last night’s Vice Presidential debate, the Internet and the media have found new fodder in the blinding grin of the nation’s 69-year-old Vice President Joe Biden. The veep’s exaggerated guffaws and smirks at Paul Ryan’s assertions and figures arguably drew as much or more attention as the substance of the candidates’ conversation. (The Internet has already gifted us with Twitter accounts like @LaughingJoeBiden and @MalarkyJoe.)

While supporters were thrilled his aggressive demeanor, Biden’s critics found him rude and cranky, combining for an Internet buzz not dissimilar to what happened to Big Bird last week after Mitt Romney said during his Debate that he would cut funding for PBS. (Remember when @FiredBigBird was a thing for a hot second? PBS supporters came out in droves, while Michelle Malkin declared the next morning that Democrats were “hiding behind Big Bird.”) READ FULL STORY

'Teen Wolf': Colton Haynes to exit?

The rumor mill continues to churn upon reports that Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes, who plays Jackson on the MTV drama, is exiting the show after contract negotiations fell apart.

For its part, the network denies all reports, telling EW, that there is “absolutely no truth that Colton is being pushed out or that he, or any cast member, is being replaced. We love Colton and look forward to his returning with the entire cast for season 3 of Teen Wolf.”

Adding fuel to the fire is Haynes himself, who tweeted a suspiciously-timed, out-of-context statement. READ FULL STORY
