Kathy Griffin To Televise Pap Smear

April 16th, 2010 8:37am EDT
Kathy Griffin
Outrageous comedienne Kathy Griffin is set to test the limits of decency on TV again by televising a pap smear.

The redhead is making the intimate cancer check a public viewing event at the Palomar Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday - and she'll be filming it for her My Life On The D-List reality TV series.

She tells Eonline.com, "We tried to do it in a somewhat classy fashion... but no legitimate news place would let us do it in an even somewhat serious way. So I said, 'Screw it! They can't stop me from doing a pap smear on my own show.' You will not be seeing the actual part of the hoo-ha...

2010 Grammy Awards Fashion (Photos)

February 1st, 2010 12:10pm EST
2010 Grammy Awards Fashion
Gold and beige were hot colors at last night's Grammy Awards. Beyonce looked fantastic in a form-fitting Stephanie Rolland gown, while Katy Perry wore the same shade in a dress by Zac Posen, complete with gold flowers. Sexy "Tik Tok" pop star Ke$ha wore a flirty gold fringed dress. Carrie Underwood took the stage in a strapless gold gown but wore a white dress with an asymmetrical neckline on the red carpet.

Fergie stood out in her electric blue and gold dress, which had a hint of Egyptian flare. Taylor Swift was one of our top picks of the night in a blue sparkly floor-length Kaufman F...

Where Would Lady Gaga, Lil' Wayne & Others Be If They Started Via 'American Idol'

January 12th, 2010 12:34pm EST
Lady Gaga
It has been said that the American Idol process is much more grueling than other, more traditional ways of making it in the music industry. But then again, so many of those other ways include years of singing back-up or bussing tables to make one's own demo, and even still connections and marketability mean more than talent.

With American Idol, marketability is also very important, but what once might have been years of performing, rejection, rehearsing, revamping an image, rinsing and repeating is condensed into a thirteen week boot camp, if you will. In honor of the show's ninth seaso...

Fearless Females in Comedy

November 18th, 2009 11:23am EST
Leslie Mann
Buried under a mountain of dick jokes and sweaty, hairy men, the one shining go-to for laughs in Universal Studios' "Funny People" was supporting actress Leslie Mann. No stranger to the boys' club, Mann is a graduate of the "Apatow School" but has proved herself to be more than a worthy opponent when stealing scenes - regardless of whether or not the man behind the camera was in her family (the two have been married since 1997). Though she has been in this business for almost twenty years, Mann has only been getting the critical acclaim she so richly deserves in the last few.

Mann can be...

WTF Couple: Kathy Griffin & Bristol Palin's Ex Levi Johnston At The Teen Choice Awards

August 10th, 2009 10:38am EDT
Kathy Griffin & Levi Johnston
Levi Johnston, 19, and Kathy Griffin, 47, arrived at the Teen Choice Awards together in Universal City, California, yesterday. What do you think of the odd couple? What's a teenager doing with a woman like Kathy? Is he milking his 15 minutes of fame? Is Kathy cougar material? This bizarre match doesn't seem right. See more photos after the jump...

Kathy Griffin Vs. Chelsea Handler: Who’s better?

June 12th, 2009 1:12pm EDT
Kathy Griffin Vs. Chelsea Handler
Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler may possibly be the two funniest women on television right now. Both are known for throwing humorous jabs at celebrities and talking endlessly about celebrity gossip. Griffin and Handler also have successful TV shows which capture the essence their humor. Their outrageous opinions and takes on celebrities and pop culture keep fans (straight and gay) tuned in every week. And if you've seen their Stand up, you know how offensive these ladies can be. Both are talented at what they do, but who's better?

A Profile/Interview with Actor/Producer/Talk Show Host Ryan O'Connor

December 7th, 2008 12:13pm EST
Ryan O
Ryan O'Connor is a tough man to pin down. When I first approached O'Connor to do an exclusive one-on-one interview, it was for my "Break-Out Internet Star" piece, but his busy shooting schedule, coupled with awareness events around the election did not allow it. Still, I pursued onward because I knew I had to lock him down now, so I could say I "knew him when." And O'Connor was eager to chat and excited about his "first real piece of press," but as we got into the meat of what makes him and his show tick, I began to realize just how media savvy he must be because in rescheduling, he did no...

Spotlight On Extras Who Made It Big As Actors

December 2nd, 2008 10:18am EST
George Clooney
Sometimes an actor comes along who just has a certain something that makes you want to stop and watch. He may just be in the background - where the job, really, is to be natural but not cause any attention to themselves or take away from the action in the forefront of the scene - but his magnetism may be enough to draw the eye over and back, making the viewer want to know more about the character he is supposed to be playing.

Chances are, however, if audiences are noticing this guy so are producers and casting directors, and soon he may be rewarded with a few lines here and there, bum...

'The Cho Show': Korean of the Year: Episode 1 Recap

August 22nd, 2008 11:21am EDT
Margaret Cho
The late 11pm start time for the first episode of "The Cho Show" on VH1 seemed to me to be an exciting harbinger of edgy, wickedly profane comedy to come. It all started promisingly enough: Comedienne extraordinaire Margaret Cho opened her new reality series with hard rock, a funny bit about Jack Black and his only towel (you had to be there) and a flash of her va-jay-jay - suitable and desired for a late-night crowd. Then something truly unexpected happened: Margaret became mundane.

The usually outrageous Cho is not only restrained in this series opener, she's downright neutered. Her ...

Separated At Birth? Stars Who Look Like Other Stars

Idina Menzel & Penelope Cruz
Ever hear the theory that everyone has a twin? Some believe that each and every person has a double somewhere on Earth. Whether that theory is true is debatable. However, it's uncanny how some celebrities resemble each other. Sometimes it's an obvious trait: similar hairstyle, body type or facial features. Other times it's more subtle: similar roles or names.

Whatever the reason, the following stars have something about them that makes them look like another famous somebody. And that's not always a good thing.

Summer TV Preview: Forget the Beach, Cable Is The Place To Be

May 30th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Law and Order CI
While the cable networks still lag far behind the broadcast networks in the ratings department (well, four of them anyway), they have made great strides in terms of matching, and often times exceeding, the big dogs when it comes to quality original programming.

At no time of the year is this trend more evident than in the summer. While the broadcast networks are unsurprisingly going with a bevy of unscripted fare (including entirely too many reality competition shows), the cable networks are once again proving to be the place to turn for quality, original, SCRIPTED programming.

Previously filmed in Los Angeles, it's Saturday night. Never quite catching on with the same fervor as its New York competition, MADtv has still carved a niche for itself appealing to a younger demographic who favor repeat characters and dead-on celebrity impersonations over topical sketches. Like Saturday Night Live though, "MADtv" has had some fantastic cast members during its 13-year tenure as well as some real clunkers. Why focus on the bad though when we can celebrate the good. Some of these actors have gone on to mediocre careers; others still remain stuck in obscurity. Here are the ...

'Survivor' Fantasy Cast: Who Would You Strand On An Island?

I'm an avid fan of "Survivor." I have been since the first episode of the first season. What's not to love? With the amount of scheming, deception and backstabbing, I always found myself thinking of people that I would want to see wasting away on "Survivor." This list usually included people that I intensely disliked because the experience can be tough on some people.

I have assembled my list of celebrities, historical figures and fictional characters that I would love to have on my island. The latest season had 16 people, so that's the number I'm going with.
