'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Meryl deliver the best almost-kiss of 2014

DWTS-RECAP.jpg

Hollywood is in the business of chemistry. It’s all about casting the right actors, making sure the relationship feels believable, and then crossing your fingers that what you think you see translates to the screen. And then there are reality competitions, where chemistry rarely matters unless your name is Adam Levine or Blake Shelton.

Take Dancing With the Stars, for example. Viewers tune in to watch celebs potentially embarrass themselves on the dance floor with a professional partner they’re probably decent friends with, but we don’t expect much more than that. And then, once in a while, like a unicorn sighting, something magical happens and reality TV makes casting agents’ jobs look easy. Enter Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. READ FULL STORY

Which Beyonce rumors did we make up? -- QUIZ

By now, we all know that Beyoncé is part of the Illuminati… or is she?

When video footage of Bey’s sister Solange kicking Jay Z was released, conspiracy theorists everywhere had the new fodder they’ve been looking for: An opportunity to make up more rumors about what’s really going on in Beyoncé‘s life.

Beyoncé is no stranger to these nutty theories. In fact, there are so many out-there ones that we’ve gathered together the most popular and sprinkled in our own completely made-up, baseless rumors about Queen B. Warning to all the gossipmongers out there: Nothing below is true. (Probably.)

Lance Bass pretends to be a singing fish on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Just what we’ve always wanted: Lance Bass as a Big Mouth Billy Bass.

Jimmy Fallon opened his suggestion box Wednesday night only to find an entirely reasonable request: that someone pretend to be Big Mouth Billy Bass live on The Tonight Show. The right man for the job was, of course, former ‘N Sync-er Lance Bass. Hopefully this means Bass Pro Shops will be stocking their shelves with Big Mouth Lance Basses ASAP.

Pete Holmes spoofs Sherlock Holmes -- VIDEO

Sherlock Holmes doesn’t have quite the detective skills we think he does — but he does have a pretty impressive imagination.

Comedian Pete Holmes plays Sherlock in a spoof of the BBC series that stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson), revealing that the famous detective actually has horrible deduction skills. In the video, Holmes’ Sherlock makes assumptions about James Watson’s (Matt McCarthy) life based on things like the kind of phone he has and the shoes he’s wearing which all end up being completely wrong. Maybe he was just having a bad day?

Check out the parody from The Pete Holmes Show below:

Russell Crowe and Ricky Gervais live-tweeted their drunken evening together

What do Russell Crowe and Ricky Gervais have in common? An affinity for alcohol and Twitter — preferably at the same time.

Recently, Crowe and Gervais had a few drinks together. As any child of Instagram/Twitter knows, that can only lead to one thing: Drunken photos. Only when these guys post them, millions of people are watching — and their future job prospects don’t plummet. Sorry, kids.

Most of their conversation is below, minus a few deleted tweets from Gervais, which you can see on Buzzfeed.

High schooler tries to get out of finals with Twitter

Kids these days!

The latest trend among high schoolers is to try getting out of finals using Twitter. Unfortunately, that method isn’t as effective as they may hope.

Andrew Muennink, a senior at Texas’s Round Rock High School, recently sent out a photo with art teacher Cindy House. The two are shaking hands in front of a whiteboard reading “15,000 RTs and no art final” — meaning, of course, that if Muennink’s photo was retweeted 15,000 times, he’d be safe from the test.

The Breaking Bad star, who’s currently playing President Lyndon Johnson in Broadway play “All the Way,” went on The Tonight Show Monday and played a game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon.

Met Gala's six most polarizing dresses -- POLL

'Scandal' or the White House? Tony Goldwyn visits D.C., and we compare the Oval Offices

James Franco posts almost-nude selfie on Instagram, deletes it

Today in James Franco news: The actor posted a suggestive selfie on his Instagram… and then quickly deleted it.

Franco’s no stranger to selfies — if you follow him on Twitter or Instagram, you know that he posts a variation of him lounging around in bed shirtless basically every day. But this one had the added element of his boxer briefs pulled down slightly so he could rest his hand on his, uh, Green Goblin.
