Long live 'Bachelor Pad'! (An open letter to ABC)

BACHELOR-PAD

Dear Sir or Madam,

Why do you hate me? Nay, why do you hate the more than 4 million fans who willingly spent two full hours of their lives (or an hour and 15 minutes if you FF through commercials) every Monday night last summer watching the reality show equivalent of herpes searing indictment of our fame-obsessed culture known as Bachelor Pad? You must loathe our very existence; I can think of no other reason that you would choose not to put the Pad on your schedule this summer. READ FULL STORY

'Boy Meets World' star Danielle Fishel poses for Maxim to promote her upcoming Disney channel show

Danielle-FishelHigh-school-aged Topanga would certainly disapprove. Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga on Boy Meets World and will be reprising the role on the upcoming Girl Meets World Disney Channel reboot, has posed for Maxim.

While the pictures are pretty NSFW, the accompanying Q&A is fairly PG. She talks about the origin of the name Topanga: “Michael Jacobs says he was driving down the highway when production called and said, ‘We need a name for this character!’” she explained. “He happened to be driving past Topanga Canyon, so he said, ‘Topanga.’ He says that if they had called him two miles later, I would’ve been named Canoga, which is the next exit.” READ FULL STORY

Further proof that everyone needs to stop making Harlem Shake videos

Harlem Shake videos aren’t just played out — they’re also potential career-killers.

Up to 15 gold miners in Australia were sacked recently when their mine’s owner saw their take on the YouTube sensation. Apparently, dancing shirtless in an underground mine shaft is a safety violation — even if you’re wearing a helmet. Suddenly, “Gangnam Style” parodies are starting to look almost tolerable by comparison.

Worse still, some of the folks who were canned didn’t even appear on camera; they were punished simply for watching their coworkers dance. Australian gold mines officially equal the puritan town from Footloose. Here’s the video that caused all this trouble in the first place:

Nicki Minaj's 'Idol' eye rolls are really irritating

Nicki Minaj eye roll 'American Idol'

Perhaps threatened by the high-impact stage presence of Mariah Carey’s boobs, Nicki Minaj has begun to fancy her constant side-eyes as two more main characters on American Idol (read EW’s full recap here). Can she please cut it out and cede the spotlight to the real stars of the show — Keith Urban’s highlights? So rude! Oh, or the contestants. That’s right.

See this devastating performance in action below…. READ FULL STORY

'Law & Order: SVU': Chris Brown/Rihanna episode is one of the show's biggest bummers

There are two kinds of people who watch Law & Order: SVU — those who are legitimately captivated by its lurid storylines and hyper-competent characters, and those who enjoy the show as an example of ridiculata at its finest.

Unfortunately, members of the second camp may find themselves disappointed by last night’s episode, “Funny Valentine” — a tale of love and hip-hop that’s all too familiar to anybody who’s ever gaped at an upsetting Instagram photo. Sure, moments of absurdity crept in here and there; for example, here’s the exchange that led to the show’s version of Brown’s infamous pre-Grammys assault:

Fake Rihanna [after catching Fake Chris Brown flirting with a backup singer]: “I can’t leave you alone for five minutes without you getting trashy?”
Fake Chris Brown [menacingly]: “Who you steppin’ to?”
Fake Rihanna: “You! With this… beef cookie.” [She gestures toward the backup singer] READ FULL STORY

The Onion draws ire for offensive Quvenzhane Wallis tweet -- UPDATE

Well, this ought to harsh your Oscar buzz.

Shortly after last night’s Academy Awards ceremony ended, America’s finest satirical newspaper crossed the line on its Twitter page, as is its wont — but this time, there weren’t many people laughing. The Onion targeted 9-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhané Wallis, joking that the diminutive star (and future Little Orphan Annie) isn’t quite as sweet as she seems. [UPDATE: The Onion has apologized for the joke. See their mea culpa below.]

Here’s the tweet; beware of crude and offensive language.

Happy birthday, Rihanna!

Happy birthday, Rihanna!

Grammys: J. Lo saves Adele from hydrangea huckster with a quick disco jerk of the thumb

Adele-Grammy-Crasher

Crisis averted! As if oozing Angelina Leg in a stunning Hefty Sack wasn’t heroic enough, Jennifer Lopez ended up saving Adele from a sure-to-be-obnoxious encounter with Grammys crasher Vitalii Seduik — the same Ukranian TV personality who tried to make out with Will Smith on the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere and gifted Madonna those absolutely loathsome hydrangeas! Seduik somehow got onstage as Adele came up to accept the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance, but luckily J. Lo was there to throw him a scathing “Set Fire to This Pain in the Ass” glare and then shoo him away with a quick jerk of her thumb. Behold an international hero at work in the short clip below.

The Melissa McCarthy dilemma: Where'd you go Sookie St. James?

Melissa McCarthy has more than one setting, but you wouldn’t really know that from her recent slate of film characters.

Ever since she made a splash–and earned an Oscar nomination–with her Guy Fieri-inspired bridesmaid, McCarthy seems to have set herself up to repeat a certain type of role: loud, crass, and obnoxious. Her next three projects, including the new-in-theaters Identity Thief and June’s The Heat are all described as raunchy comedies, and she has a few more projects in the works with her new production company that sound as though they will go that route as well.

She can do much more than these roles might suggest–Gilmore Girls fans already knew that.
