Reasons Dolly Parton agreed to rap in an Afro wig on Queen Latifah's talk show -- VIDEO

1. By the time she realized Queen Latifah didn’t mean “gift-wrapping,” it was already too late.

2. She’s seen The Wedding Singer one too many times.

3. If she hadn’t, the Queen would have invited that tramp Jolene to guest star instead.

4. Miley told her it would be a great idea.

5. She lost a bet, maybe?

All local news reacts the same way to Mike Myers baby announcement -- VIDEO

Dear everybody: Your joke isn’t as funny — or original — as you think it is.

Conan O’Brien pointed out as much on his show last night, noting that every local news anchor in America made the exact same movie reference when noting that Mike Myers and his wife are expecting their second child. And no, it wasn’t a “mini me” remark.

In the 29 (!) clips compiled below, each newscaster’s enthusiasm for the bit varies wildly — from “I’ve never even seen Austin Powers and therefore have no idea what reference I’m making” to “Saturday Night Live, here I come!” Watch the Conan compilation below: READ FULL STORY

Dear 'Revenge': What is a love rhombus? PopWatch investigates!

When a colleague came over earlier today and asked if I’d seen last night’s Revenge promos teasing a “love rumpus,” I thought to myself, “That’s ridiculous and brilliant, and I have no idea what it means. Also, people don’t use the word ‘rumpus’ enough.” But after re-watching the promos, I realized what they were getting at: Emily Thorne is deciding amongst (not between — that implies two) three elligible men, including her fiance, her ex, and her true love. Spoiler: They’re all smokin’ hot.

I went back to my colleague and explained my discovery, which caused us to watch the promo for a third time. That’s when we finally understood that it wasn’t talking about “the Hamptons’ hottest love rumpus” — it was talking about “the Hamptons’ hottest love rhombus.”

'Reign' react: Teenagers go a courtin'

Sorry, Sleepy Hollow: Reign saw your headless horseman and raised you a French court complete with a supernatural spirit protecting a young! sexy! teenage! Mary, Queen of Scots as she works her way through the social and political minefield that was royalty at the time.

History buffs are sure to be disappointed by The CW getting into the politics of 16th century French court (Francis II of France was not so much a stud as he was sickly), but for those of us who are looking for an over-the-top costume drama by the people who brought you 90210, welcome to your new favorite show.

The premiere showcased Mary’s (Adelaide Kane) arrival at court, and — just like in high school — it’s hard to be the new girl. She meets up with her Anthropologie-dressed ladies in waiting, and awkwardly meets the Dauphin of France, Francis. (Toby Regbo)…and his hot half-brother Bash (Torrance Coombs), who looks like a Vampire Diaries castoff who already has an Oscar in smoldering.

Donald Trump has a star on the Walk of Fame... but Kim Kardashian never will

Sorry, Kanye — the Hollywood Walk of Fame doesn’t think your girl qualifies for a star of her very own.

The rapper recently declared on Jimmy Kimmel Live that his main squeeze Kim Kardashian deserves a square of sidewalk on Hollywood’s most famous footpath. Unfortunately, a representative for the landmark recently told the New York Daily News that the Walk has no category for reality stars: “They’re not giving a performance, it’s just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV,” Walk of Fame vice president for media relations Ana Martinez explained. “We honor people who’ve acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And it’s the same with music, people who maybe have gold records.” (For the record, Martinez told EW the same thing in 2011.)

Surely you can see where she’s coming from — the Walk can’t just be handing out stars all willy-nilly. Mickey Rooney only has two! And clearly, only the most important entertainment luminaries are rewarded with stars on the Walk — you know, like these past recipients:

Please respect Kim and Kanye's privacy as they discuss their sex plans on Twitter

“My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy,” Kim Kardashian told DuJour magazine earlier this year, in a cover interview that accompanied her pregnant bikini photoshoot. “I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything. I’m shifting my priorities.”

Pause for a moment to let that really sink in.

Then please refer to Exhibit A: a photo that Kim posted on Instagram about seven hours ago. Spoiler alert: If you’ve ever wanted to see every contour of the reality star’s famous butt, unshackled by the pesky millimeter of fabric that just barely hides it from view on a normal day — well, then today is your day, my friend:

This Tim Gunn supercut doubles as a vocab lesson -- VIDEO

Tim Gunn, of the Tim Gunn Save, is simply the best. The Project Runway mentor and woolly balls enthusiast has delighted us season after season with his wit, relatability (fans are still clutching their pocket squares after last week’s ghastly trip down the NYC subway stairs), and genuine commitment to the contestants. And he’s taught aspiring fashionistas so many words. Consternation! Sturm und drang! WHITE?! Throw ‘em together along with his signature “Make it work!” and lilting “desiiiign-errrs” and it’s like a sweet, vaguely bitchy but ever-loving symphony.

Season 12 ends tonight, but here’s a Tim Gunn supercut you can put in your pocket and carry around forever. (Your phone is in your pocket. Egregious!) READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Elizabeth Berkley finally channels Jessie Spano in an 'I'm So Excited' jive

Have my 17 (SEVENTEEN!) seasons of watching Dancing With the Stars just been validated? Don’t you dare answer that realistically. On tonight’s “Most Memorable Year of My Life” show (read our full recap), Elizabeth Berkley Lauren paid homage to the finest and fiercest caffeine pill dance party in television history: Jessie Spano’s “I’m so excited! I’m so… scared!” breakdown in a 1990 episode of Saved by the Bell.

Young Jessie and A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez, visiting from the Extra! set nearby) could never have predicted…that Zack Morris would be tweeting @ them, 23 years later, as they re-proclaimed their love in a televised ballroom! (Last part did not happen.)

Revel in the nostalgia/weep for humanity below. Don’t be scared! You need it to study. Here’s the video: READ FULL STORY

Kanye West on Kimmel: Epic rant to clarify last rant

After Kanye went on a Twitter rant following Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof of his BBC interview, the two agreed to talk it out on Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. And in true Kanye form, he went on another epic rant to clarify his last rant.

“We had a big dumb fight on Twitter but he was nice enough to come on tonight,” said Kimmel, who tried to cut the tension by opening with accessories. He asked about Kanye’s outfit (“Ralph”), was he wearing a new grill (“No, they’ve been in my mouth for three years”), before showing a clip of the skit that started it all (even Kanye was smiling!)

“The truth is, the main reason I did that is because I like to see kids curse,” said Kimmel who admitted he didn’t watch the entire BBC interview. Both assured us this wasn’t a publicity stunt. READ FULL STORY

Marilyn Monroe's X-rays are being auctioned off

Yes, you read that headline right. We now have proof that Marilyn Monroe was the sexiest woman to ever walk the earth: More than 50 years after her death, people are still willing to spend money on her facial X-rays, which are being auctioned off at Julien’s Auctions.

According to Vanity Fair, six facial X-rays of Monroe’s have surfaced. Dated June 7, 1962, they hit just one week after her 36th birthday and two months before her death. So why was she getting X-rays? Monroe had complained of “tenderness” in her nose, so she was taken to see plastic surgeon Michael Gurdin. Although he didn’t claim to see any breaks at the time, a medical professional for Julien’s Auctions thinks there could have been a hairline fracture.
