'SNL' alum Victoria Jackson pays a visit to Occupy Wall Street. Hilarity ensues?

Celebrities have been visiting the Occupy Wall Street protests for the last few days now, with the aim of supporting the effort and cheering the demonstrators.

Former Saturday Night Live star Victoria Jackson, however, had a different reason for going. In a lengthy YouTube video, Jackson — a born-again Christian and outspoken Obama critic — traveled to downtown Manhattan to, in her words, “ask the protestors what they’re protesting. I think they are against capitalism and I think capitalism is a great thing.”  READ FULL STORY

Boxing hobbits! Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan 'beat the s--' out of each other at Fantastic Fest -- VIDEO


A couple of weeks back, Fantastic Fest organizer Tim League spoke to us about his then upcoming debate and boxing match with bare knuckle pugilist James Quinn McDonagh, star of the Austin, Texas fest’s selection Knuckle. What League neglected to mention (the swine!) was that another of the night’s bouts would feature Lord of the Rings co-stars “Relentless” Elijah Wood and “Domineering” Dominic Monaghan.

That’s right, on Saturday, Frodo and Merry stepped in the ring to first argue the merits of World of Warcraft and then, in the words of Wood, “beat the s— out of one other.”


'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

The 2011 Miss Universe Pageant: 10 Awkward Utterances During Swimsuit Competition

Congratulations to Leila Lopes from Angola, who was crowned Miss Universe 2011 in last night’s 60th anniversary competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil!

I had every intention of compiling 10 Adorable Andy Cohen Faces for this post (he hosted along with Today anchor Natalie Morales). But as soon as the bikini catwalk started, I knew that the standout moments of this major television event were, instead, the 10 Most Awkward Swimsuit Competition Utterances — made by the well-intentioned but ohhhhhhh so corny skybox commentators Jeannie Mai and Shandi Finnessey. Body shots for everyone and my official ranking here: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch PSA: Please stop using Pink's 'Raise Your Glass' in every trailer

During my sixth consecutive hour of watching Friends on Nick at Nite (despite making me feel very old, this addition to their line-up is quite enjoyable), I started to lose my patience. And not just with the way Ross pronounces “karate.” Rather, it was because every single commercial break featured the preview for Anna Faris’ upcoming calculating-your-sexual-partners comedy What’s Your Number?. The movie itself doesn’t bother me. (In fact, Faris’ English accent-turned-Borat imitation is pretty amusing.) It’s the fact that Pink’s ubiquitous track has found its way into yet another rom-com trailer.

The tune, which dangerously started to veer into overexposed, overplayed territory when the Warblers got their hands on it last season on Glee, took the express lane to the land of Dear God, No, Not Again (“Who Let The Dogs Out?” welcomes you!) when it was featured in no less than three trailers for female-driven flicks.

LIFE names 'The Worst Accents in Movie History.' Rough week, in'nit Anne Hathaway?

One Day could very well turn out to be the most distracting movie of 2011. Either you couldn’t get attached because you’d read the book and knew the shocking, twist ending that was coming or you didn’t know and were so blindsided you had a hard time enjoying the rest of the film. But, there’s been an even bigger diversion that’s kept people for falling for the weepy, big-screen adaptation of David Nicholls’ best-selling novel: Anne Hathaway’s shaky British accent.

The folks over at LIFE would have to agree. In their list of “The Worst Accents in Movie History” they argue that Hathaway’s Emma is supposed to hail from Leeds, but the actress seemed to have picked up a whole bunch of regional dialects and compiled them into one super-distracting allegedly British accent. Of course, she’s hardly the only star to miss the mark completely when it comes to speaking in a foreign tongue. READ FULL STORY

Help! Selena Gomez and her 'Love Song' earwig

I can’t get Selena Gomez out of my head. And I really, really, really want to. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing against the Disney pop princess or her inane dance song “Love You Like a Love Song.” I just seriously want to stop hearing/humming/even-partially-liking it.

But if you’re a parent of a tween girl like I am, you’ve probably spent a fair amount of time with the family TV stuck on the Disney Chanel, which manages to play the video for the song what feels like countless times over the course of an hour. READ FULL STORY

Kings of Leon's woes: Can a band's troubles stop the music for you?

Over the past few years, the biggest problem for Kings of Leon and their fans, besides some pesky pigeons, was having songs that were too catchy and too popular. There wasn’t a time when you didn’t hear “Sex On Fire” or “Use Somebody” on the radio, and for followers of the band of brothers (and cousins) that was just fine.

Of course, things aren’t so majestic in the Kings’ court lately. Besides a battle earlier this year with Glee creator Ryan Murphy, the Grammy-winning rockers have fallen on hard times, following lead singer Caleb Followill’s recent “unfit” performance in Dallas, Texas. The controversial July 29 show, in which Followill, claiming that he felt “hot,” wandered off stage and didn’t return. (KOL’s spokesperson released a statement that said Followill was “suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion.”) READ FULL STORY

The 'Cars 2' conundrum: Is Mater really Pixar's Jar Jar Binks?

Unlike most adults who went to see Cars 2 this weekend, I was there for one reason and one reason alone: To count how many planes, trains and automobiles kicked the can (for the record, it was eight cars and one very unfortunate boat.)

But, while I wasn’t in tow with a sugared-up youngster wearing full-on Lightning McQueen gear, I can safely say I wasn’t the only grown-up having a tough time getting through the flick. To be fair, it wasn’t for lack of eye-popping scenery or adult-friendly jokes (the nods at Japanese culture were pretty inspired) because they had plenty of that to go around…and around…and around…

Rather, it was sitting through a sequel that followed sweet, but dopey sidekick tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy, in excessive Southern drawl) around the globe for a series of misunderstandings (he’s mistaken for an American spy!) and hyuck-hyuck scenarios (he mistakes Wasabi for pistachio ice cream!) that tested some mom’s and dad’s good humor. You can practically hear the groans from adults sitting through that growing louder than a revving engine, no? READ FULL STORY

Fill in the blank: Heidi Montag is a world-class...


You may look at Heidi Montag’s cartoonishly sexualized body and dismiss it is as the mere product of a frightening number of plastic surgeries. You couldn’t be more wrong. Montag works hard to look the way she does, harder than maybe anyone who’s ever lived. She told Us Weekly magazine that she’s spent the last two months working out 14 hours day. “I’ve been working out from, like, 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. for two months now,” she told the magazine. “I’ve been working out really hard because I had this pool party and I was like, I have to be in shape.” READ FULL STORY
