Nicole lives in Los Angeles and spends her time embarrassing herself. Yeah that’s right, embarrassing herself. You know that girl you see at bars pretending to do the breast stroke on the dance floor, or that girl that starts a kicking contest with her equally “unique” friend, Stacy? Or perhaps you have seen her ducking behind air to hide from a celebrity after she’s been caught staring. That’s Nicole and she can run as fast as Flash Go

'The Kids Are All Right' – A Movie to Stand Up To Summer Blockbusters

7/12/2010 11:17am EDT
Fortunately for some (and unfortunately for others) summertime is synonymous with huge blockbusters at the theater. Two hours filled with action, romance and millions of dollars spent in special effects and stunt work certainly make going to the movies a bit harder to pass up.

However, there are other non-blockbuster movies that deserve a little love this summer. One such movie is ‘The Kids Are All Right’ directed by Lisa Cholodenko and starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. Consider this movie the story of a modern family trying to navigate through the complexities of l...

Jon Gosselin Rethinks His Life, Gets A Back Tat

Jon By the Pool
“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”

Ok so this isn’t 'The Godfather' but that quote does apply to arguably America’s most hated dad, Jon Gosselin.

For the most part, the media has been focused on Kate Gosselin and her short-lived stint on 'Dancing with The Stars', as well as, her alleged affair with her body guard and the continuous rumors of diva-sized demands. But, despite her jaded and at times bitter exterior, the public seemed to almost sympathize with her for being a single parent to eight young children with a very questionable father. In the face of such challen...

Jennifer Love Hewitt Loves Her Body, Unless There's A Supermodel Nearby

Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Love Hewitt has had a rough couple of years. She’s recently single, her show, 'The Ghost Whisperer' has seen better days, her new book, 'The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt, I’m a Love-aholic' has been panned by critics, and she’s also battled against the media’s intense and often cruel obsession over her weight. And apparently, Love isn’t immune to Hollywood’s most rampant disease, Celebrities-Say-Stupid-Stuff-itis, so it looks like the good times are going to keep on coming for her. Yes, more common than Hit-Bottom-junctis, Love has contracted Celebrities-...

'American Idol' - A History Of Never Getting It Right

5/27/2010 3:50pm EDT
Lee DeWyze
Last night’s American Idol finale brought exciting performances from veteran acts, visits from past contestants and of course, an awkward speech from Paula Abdul. The night also brought about a new idol in Lee DeWyze but his victory over Crystal Bowersox begs the question, did American Idol crown the right contestant last night?

Of course, the answer to that question is largely subjective but Bowersox did appear to be the season’s favorite. Simon Cowell, in all of his omnipotence, said early in the season that Bowersox was the one to beat. Not too long after that episode, Cowell even went ...

What 'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Lacked – Unpredictability

“Dancing With The Stars” is a great idea for a television show – get a handful of some famous faces, pair them with professional dancers and dress them up in sparkly outfits while they get harsh criticism filled with double entendres. As season 10 came to a close last night, it’s clear that audiences have really grown to love this formula as the show’s ratings top the juggernaut that is “American Idol”.

However, here’s one complaint – the celebrities with the dancing experience always place the highest! Ok so DWTS is a show based around competitive dancing. It’s like the free market where ...

Tito Ortiz & Jenna Jameson Are Back Together & Hollywood's Other Dysfunctional Couples

Jenna Jameson & Tito Ortiz
If you're like most Americans, Mother's Day can be a day for touching sentiment, love and over priced brunches. If you're Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson, it's apparently a day to show off your crazy and dysfunctional relationship. Just this past Sunday, Jameson and Ortiz were snapped walking hand in hand enjoying a beautiful Mother's day on the beach with their twin sons.

For those of you who can't keep up, Ortiz was arrested on April 26, but fast forward only a few short weeks to May 9, Mother's Day, and now the once alleged wife beater and prescription drug addict are back together and ...

'The Joneses' Review: Demi Moore& David Duchovny Give Us A Reason To Go To the Movies This Weekend

Review: The Joneses
This morning you probably got ready to go to work by putting on your work clothes, eating breakfast, grabbing your purse or your wallet, and maybe driving yourself into the office. After work today you’ll probably go home, change into your “going out” clothes, call your friends, and head out to blow off some steam. What if someone told you that everything you did this morning from picking out your clothes, to making your breakfast, to choosing where you’re going wasn’t entirely your choice? What if everything you decided to buy was instead a product of a new kind of marketing technique cal...

Jesse James Nazi Photo Was Only A Joke For His Jewish Mentor

Jesses Nazi Photo Was Only A Joke For His Jewish Mentor
Jesse James is in a whole mess of trouble and so far, his apologies and explanations are falling short. James has become America’s newest Tiger Woods for cheating on his wife, America’s newest sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, with strippers, former models and an alleged white Supremacist. That alone should be enough problems for one man to handle but there’s a cherry on top of the Jesse-James-Is-Screwed-Sundae and that’s a photo of him wearing and a Nazi officer’s hat, placing two fingers above his lip to mimic Hilter’s mustache all while saluting the camera.

James has since released a public...

April Controversy In GQ: Shia LaBeouf And Rielle Hunter's Provocative Interviews

Shia LeBeouf GQ
GQ can count on one thing next month, not just the tax deadline, but the controversy that next month’s magazine is going to stir up. For starters, coverboy Shia LaBeouf dishes on everything from new girlfriend Cary Mulligan, reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, and finally Michael Douglas’s family problems.

Sharing cover story duty is John Edward’s former mistress, Rielle Hunter, in a provocative photo spread that has already generated a lot of backlash and harsh words for and from Ms. Hunter.

Looking every bit the dashing Wall Street trader from the upcoming film, "Wall Street 2," Shia L...

Sandra Bullock Accepts Her Victory & Failure With An Oscar & A Razzie

Sandra Bullock accepts the Oscar
It’s official - Sandra Bullock is just cool, really cool might we add. She’s is a bonafide Hollywood star with a legitimately successful career (*cough, ahem Paris Hilton) punctuated last night with her Oscar win for Best Actress in “The Blind Side”.

Last night, Sandra recast herself as a critically acclaimed thespian capable of outshining the mighty Meryl Streep as well as Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan and Gabourey Sidibe. Factor in a Razzie acceptance speech and we’ve got someone worthy of the world “cool”.

Sandra entered into a selective group of actors this year for being nominated f...
