The season finale focuses on toys 'so ugly they're cute'
It seems that there are people in the world with more storage space and more free time than the rest of us, and these are the people of "My Crazy Obsession" (season finale airs tonight on TLC at 10:00 p.m.). In this episode, we meet Michelle, who loves troll dolls and spends up to three hours a day hunting for them online, playing with them, and sticking them in odd parts of her house. No, I'm not making that up.
Watch a clip of the 'Harold & Kumar' star's latest project
I had a chance to talk to Kal Penn at the premiere of his new show, "Big Brain Theory: Pure Genius," and found that the "Harold & Kumar" franchise and "House" star as well as former Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement (say that ten times fast) has some, as you might expect, big ideas. The show (which airs Wed. at 10:00 p.m.) challenges 10 real-life rocket scientists, engineers and brainiacs to solve tricky problems and, on occasion, blow up stuff, all while living together. Here's what Penn had to say about doing battle with stupidity, why girls are underrepresented on the show, and why STEM classes count.
The show is currently niche programming, but should it be bigger?
Last night I was watching the season finale of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and marveling at how much better at being Tyra Banks RuPaul is than, well, Tyra Banks. Over the years, "America's Next Top Model" has become a campy parody of itself, which isn't such a bad thing. Banks clearly understands where fashion and performance intersect, and she's not above some knowing self-parody.
What was Zooey Deschanel thinking?
I was willing to cut Kim Kardashian a lot of slack while she was pregnant. No matter what anyone says, walking around looking like a misshapen lollipop can make one feel like a pretty miserable fashion don't. But when Kim decided to wear matching gloves with her sofa print dress at the MET Museum Costume Institute Benefit, all bets were off. Luckily, she was just one of the stars who looked truly off at the punk-themed event -- and the rest of them didn't have crazy hormones and another human being living inside them as an excuse. Here's a look at the 10 worst looks on the red carpet.
J-Law kept it classy, while Katy Perry went for wacky
I don't know who had the brilliant idea of holding a fundraiser for the MET Museum Costume Institute with a punk theme, but it was either a stroke of brilliance (so many stars dressed so, so badly!) or just bad PR (if there is such a thing). The A-listers who got it right either embraced the theme whole-heartedly or just wore whatever the heck they wanted to wear, which is really more of a punk rock attitude, if you ask me. Here's a look at what some of the best dressed at the benefit wore, including Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Miley Cyrus (yes, that isn't a typo) and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The TLC show is set to return on July 17
The 7 year-old everyone loves to hate (or love, or a little of both) is back with all new episodes of TLC’s series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on Wed. July 17 at 9:00 p.m. Averaging 2.3 million viewers last fall, the controversial show returns with the latest from the proudly farting, burping and mud diving family.
Next week's season finale could be a hit or a massive miss
In this penultimate episode to next week's supersized finale, it seems that the Initiative's latest plan to create fear and chaos is afoot with a city-wide blackout. I just wish the rest of the episode made as much sense as this gutsy move. While some characters seemed to be reciting dialogue from previous episodes (Victoria still doesn't want Daniel to marry Emily? Le sigh), others seemed to be rushing to ridiculous conclusions.
This episode is all about Neverland, but it may not be the place you recall
Is everyone excited about Bae's new/old adventure? Obviously, major spoilers ahead if you haven't seen the episode, so you may not want to read after the jump just yet. If you like "Once Upon A Time" mythology, I think this episode is one worth seeing for yourself.
The clones bump into trouble when Vic and Paul crash Alison's party
It's one thing to host the neighborhood potluck party and run low on chips and wine glasses. It's quite another to muck things up by leaving your freshly tortured husband tied up downstairs, then having your clone's ex popping in to demand a cut of the scam he thinks must be going on, then have another clone's ex (who is now the previously mentioned clone's, um, buddy) stop by. I think we can all agree that it's not easy being a clone. Or having a potluck for the neighbors when you are one. It's a shame, really, because you'd think things would be a lot easier having many "yous" on hand, but, as Homer Simpson once learned, there's always a price.
Fighting, screaming, crying and a pet pig are all coming soon
As we hear in the promo for the new season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" (premiering June 2 at 8:00 p.m.), sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to get better. Although I'm really not sure that this group of loons can get better. Heck, I'm not sure we want them to get better. What's the fun in sanity?
