Calling all shippers! What are your favorite fictional first kisses?

[Spoilers from Tuesday's The Mindy Project]

Mindy Kaling loves a good romantic comedy, so it shouldn’t have been a surprise that Mindy Project‘s winter finale last night culminated in a perfect rom-com moment: Danny kissed Mindy! And it was a longggg one! On a plane! After helping her try to win Cliff back!

I don’t know how I’m going to be able to wait until April to see what happens next. (Is Cliff going to be at the airport? Will Danny want a relationship? OMG what is Morgan going to say!?) Side note: Between this and her meeting with Ginsberg from Mad Men on an airplane earlier this season, I can’t help but feel like I’m getting on the wrong flights.

For fans of Mindy and Danny’s will they/won’t they tension, the moment has been in the making for quite some time. I mean, you don’t rush to the hospital in a season premiere for just anybody! And while there are debates to be had about whether you want those two together as a couple on the show right away or not, it got me thinking about some of my other favorite TV first kisses — because Mindy and Danny certainly ranks up there.

'Life-Size' is getting a 'modern' update. Let's plan it!

Break out that 100-watt smile: Life-Size, the Lindsay Lohan/Tyra Banks-starring television movie, is getting a sequel. Wait, what?

Tyra Banks responded to a question about the reboot on Twitter over the weekend (rumors have been circulating since 2012), writing, “Tis true, Love” and then linking to a Digital Spy article in which she’s quoted as saying, “I have a meeting today to go over the script! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing – it could be late 2014 or 2015. But it will be back – Life-Size will be back, better than ever…I’m under contract with Disney and I can’t talk about it at all, except that it’s coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern – a modern take.” (EW reached out to a rep for Disney, who didn’t return a request for comment.) READ FULL STORY

Michelle Obama shoots and scores during Miami Heat interview -- VIDEO

Michelle-Obama-the-Heat.jpg

The Miami Heat  may have to make room for a new player because evidently our very own First Lady has some skills. Michelle Obama had some of the Heat players over to the White House to record a PSA for Let’s Move, her organization that promotes healthy lifestyles for kids. In the video, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen talk about how they like to hydrate and eat food (great tips, by the way) as Chris Bosh pops up behind them drinking a tall glass of water. But the real excitement comes when Obama makes a slam dunk in a portable hoop held by LeBron James. Check out the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' episode 3

Chris-Harrison.jpg

Sunday night we celebrated all the love that’s been found on this show with our special Bachelor Love Stories. I enjoyed looking back at some of these older seasons and reliving some great memories of people who have become very dear friends of mine. Jason really said it best when he said he doesn’t think of The Bachelor as a show, he thinks of it as a family. I couldn’t agree more, my friend. I look forward to seeing all of these friends and more next Sunday night as another beautiful couple, Sean and Catherine, get married live on ABC. It’s going to be an incredible event. We’ve done several of these weddings but we’ve never done one live. I’ve been hoping that we’d do this ever since Trista and Ryan were married. And now, ten years and four weddings later we’re finally holding a wedding live on the air. You’ll see it and hear it just as we do, as it happens. It’s going to be a beautiful night and I can’t wait to celebrate with them.

Now let’s get back to the adventure that is Juan Pablo attempting to find love. Cassandra got the first date this week. It was a very simple date night for a couple of single parents. After cruising around in a water-car, the two headed back to his house for a nice dinner. (We used a different house for Juan Pablo this season because we needed more room for his little girl and his parents when they are all in town.) The meal Juan Pablo cooked was a Venezuelan dish his mom actually helped him make. Not sure if that’s considered cheating or just smart. Cassandra and Juan Pablo seemed to connect on a deep level, understand each other as single parents, and she easily got a rose. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: [spoiler] revealed!

Last week, Craig Thomas told me that we’d learn the names of Ted’s children in Monday’s episode, and as promised, the mystery was solved! The twist? That’s not the only big reveal in “Unpause.”

And we have an extremely drunk Barney to thank for that…

Robert Downey Jr. and Sting duet on 'Driven to Tears' -- VIDEO

If you thought Robert Downey Jr.’s brown eyes and his sense of humor were the sexiest things about him, you were wrong. Because the man can sang.

Iron Man himself recently joined Sting on stage for a duet of “Driven to Tears.” The two shared a mic in front of a very happy crowd as Downey showed off his soulful, sultry, and downright shocking vocal chops. Needless to say, if I were building a band of Hollywood actors, he would officially be my lead singer. And Johnny Depp would be my guitarist. Actually, that would make for a great reality show.

Watch Downey and Sting duet below:

Beyonce writes essay: Gender equality 'isn't a reality yet'

Beyoncé is a grown woman, which means she’s begun to lend her voice to important causes.

For a long time, Beyoncé’s only public cause was BEYONCE!, which consisted of dancing and singing all over the world without ever really giving opinions about non-entertainment issues. Even her involvement with the First Lady was mostly just more dancing. But as anyone who listened to last month’s Beyoncé knows, Queen Bey has clearly decided the time has come to get a few things off her chest that aren’t sparkling bustiers — which brings us to her new short essay.

The Shriver Report is a “groundbreaking investigation into the millions of women who are doing it all and barely scraping by…It combines research, analysis and ideas from the nation’s top academic institutions and think tanks, essays by leading thinkers, stories of real women struggling with our modern economy, and a comprehensive poll,” commissioned by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress. In addition to everyday women and expected participants such as Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sheryl Sandberg, included in the 400-page report is a brief essay, “Gender Equality Is a Myth!,” by one Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

Golden Globes: Play our drinking game!

Will Jennifer Lawrence make a charming speech? Will Amy Poehler crack you up? Will Ricky Gervais drunk-rush the stage, demanding what he sees as rightfully his?

It’s anyone’s guess what will go down tonight during the Golden Globes, often noted by the attendees as the most fun and laid-back awards show of the year. After all, this is the one — according to Amy Poehler’s monologue from last year’s ceremony — “Where the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people from TV.”

Since you won’t be heading to the Globes this year, PopWatch has broken down all the likely phrases and jokes you’ll be hearing when your favorite ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take to the Globes stage tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Obviously, PopWatch cautions you to celebrate responsibly. Pace yourself; this whole show is — oh my God, it’s three hours long, and that’s not including any pre-carpet gown judging you partake in.

'Parks & Rec' 100th episode react: Leslie decides on next step with help from special guest star

An unexpectedly emotional 30 minutes of Parks and Recreation found the show grappling with what the next step would be for all of its major characters. For some, like parents-to-be Ann and Chris, the answer was sweet and obvious: They’re having a baby boy! For others, like Tom, the show set the groundwork for him to move in a different, perfectly right direction in his new, self-created position as business liaison for the Parks department. And for others, like Ben and Leslie, the next step isn’t quite so clear yet — but that’s okay, too. Jennifer Barkley even said so!

It was the 100th episode of the show Thursday, and it was a welcome and long-awaited return for our favorite public servants. Parks picked up with Leslie’s last day as City Councilor, and she was coping well with having to give up her life-long dream job. Just kidding! She was, of course, a wreck, but managed to put on a brave face while showing  Ingrid de Forest (Kristen Bell) around. The two even managed to do a split-second duet before Leslie realized she really doesn’t need to feel worse about herself today. (Cross-promotion missed opportunity: Bell could have sung a little Frozen!) READ FULL STORY

'The Spoils of Babylon' premiere: Extrapolations

Ooh, now this is a weird show. IFC’s new well-stirred and visually striking vat of star soup has Will Ferrell as Eric Jonrosh, the “Author-Producer-Actor-Writer-Director-Raconteur-Bon Vivant-Legend-Fabulist” behind The Spoils of Babylon, an epic miniseries based on his own epic novel. Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire play the kids of Tim Robbins’ oil tycoon. Eventually Maguire’s character Devon marries a mannequin… voiced by Carey Mulligan. Even the most successful fabulists have to cut costs sometimes.

I can already tell that one must really be in the right mood to enjoy this six-episode miniseries — but I was! The format was so unexpected and I love how they created an entire production within the show. (If you’re looking for a TV show that will remind you to revisit Boogie Nights, this is the one.) It’s so exaggeratedly dumb that it can seem brilliant — and if a scene or dialogue seems lame or dragged out beyond comprehension, well, that’s just raggedy old Eric Jonrosh for you. Blame him! These poor actors are just trying to do their jobs.

Read EW’s Spoils of Babylon review here, and check out some of my favorite absurd moments from tonight’s two-part premiere, below:
