My how the Heidi have fallen. Former Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt came out today to bemoan their downtrodden situation, claiming they’re broke and fundamentally unemployable after their stint as villains on the hit MTV show. The couple gave The Daily Beast an interview during which they spilled behind-the-scenes secrets, put to bed the were-they-or-weren’t-they questions about their 2010 divorce drama, and generally demonstrated how sad the life of a washed-up reality star can be.

Is Jennifer Love Hewitt the worst actress of the last 25 years? Hewitt responds: 'Clearly, I need to learn French and go to Paris.'
It’s impossible to convert the subjective experience of artistry into an objective number-crunching ranking system. But that hasn’t stopped people from trying. Slate.com recently sifted through Rotten Tomatoes, the popular website that aggregates all the reviews of a film and grades them on a binary “fresh”/”rotten” critical scale, in an attempt to come up with the actors and actresses with the best track records in onscreen greatness. Get this: According to the study, Jennifer Love Hewitt has the worst track record of any movie actress in Hollywood. The conclusion derives from the fact that Hewitt has never starred in a film to earn a “fresh” rating.
When asked to comment, Hewitt released a statement to EW: “Clearly, I need to learn French and go to Paris to make some French films, since those seem to be the favorites of critics. And do they give trophies for this?” READ FULL STORY
I, like many of my high school ilk (or was that middle school? I’m too young to feel this old), used to worship the ground that Chad Michael Murray walked on. I used to live for the nights new episodes would air. (Tuesdays?) But of course this was back when it was on the nearly fully decomposed WB — or “the Dubs B,” as we in the suburban hood used to call it.
Over the years I lost touch with the One Tree Hill gang. Chad Michael Murray left, somebody apparently became a famous singer (it wasn’t Gavin DeGraw), and a whole lot of cross-pollination happened. OTH‘s rating are low but its fan base is high, and intense. Did I say intense? I meant crazy intense. READ FULL STORY
Many moons ago, it seemed like everyone on the Internet was clucking about Skins, MTV’s adaptation of a beloved British show that dramatizes the lives of teenagers gone wild. There was drug use! There was cursing! There was child porn, maybe-okay-not-really! As word of the series’s scandalous content spread far and wide, advertisers began to pull out of the show faster than you can say “She’s Too Young” — which only stoked the virtual fire.
But then a curious thing happened: Ratings for the teen drama’s second episode, which aired January 24, dropped sharply from 3.3 million viewers to 1.6 million viewers. In later weeks, that number got lower still… and subsequently, people stopped talking about Skins. Chances are that you had no idea the show’s season — and possibly series — finale aired last night.
So why did Skins start with a bang and end with a whimper? READ FULL STORY
Like that pimple on your chin you so desperately tried to extinguish before meeting your boyfriend’s mother for the first time, Kate Gosselin is baaaaaack! TLC has confirmed with EW that the much-maligned reality star is set to return with new episodes of Kate Plus 8 on April 4 — but, honestly, are you really interested in watching anymore?
We first tuned into Jon & Kate Plus 8 for the adorable factor: Eight huggable wee ones making mischief — how could we resist? Then there was the scandal factor: The divorce! The Ed Hardy! Holy midlife crisis! Then we watched Gosselin shimmy her way into disaster status, courtesy of Dancing With the Stars. But now, after drinking Charlie Sheen’s tiger blood and watching Lindsay Lohan defend her alleged sticky fingers, Gosselin feels like a scandal-prone reality star from a distant — and, somehow, much more innocent — time. (Sheen sees your divorce, Kate, and raises you a machete.) In other words: Hey, Kate Gosselin: 2010 wants its trainwreck back!
So, yes, Kate Plus 8 is returning this April, when TLC will air footage of Gosselin and the children traveling through Australia. But is there any way we’d still laugh at shots of her swimming with sharks, unless we portal back in time a year and a half? In this day and age, is her trainwreck simply not gruesome enough? PopWatchers: Will you watch Kate Plus 8?
