Tori Spelling's Reality Show Ends With Producers Fabricating Tweets

After getting off to a bumpy start, True Tori never managed to fully convince people of its authenticity. So perhaps it's fitting that last night's "reunion" episode rang just as false as the rest of the season, with a little bit of staged drama, fake viewer-submitted questions from nonexistent Twitter accounts and… » 6/04/14 2:20pm 6/04/14 2:20pm

B-List Celebrity Book Covers Are All the Same: They're 'Having It All'

Candace Cameron Bure (aka D.J. from Full House aka the woman who definitely was not going to win Dancing with the Stars this season, not with Olympic skater Meryl Davis in the mix) is just trying to explain how she works at Balancing It All.

Did Tori Spelling Fake a Cheating Scandal to Land a New Reality Show?

Tori Spelling's new reality show True Tori is supposed to document—practically in real time—her marital problems with estranged husband Dean McDermott, who checked into rehab after it was reported in Us Weekly that he cheated on her.

Gwyneth Files Restraining Order After Creep Lies His Way into Her Home

Uuuuuugh, celebrity life is such a nightmare. All nightmares all the time. I mean, I know it's "worth it" because you get to use Richard Branson's outdoor shower and take unlimited naps probably and also you can use one of those gas station ATMs with the extra fee and not give a fuck. But UGH. Because creeps are… » 4/22/14 8:15pm 4/22/14 8:15pm

Dean McDermott Admits to Cheating, Tori Says It's 'Never Enough Sex'

As I've mentioned before, I have an intense and irrational attachment to the marriage of Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, based on one flu-riddled binge-watch of Tori and Dean: Inn Love. So I have very complicated feelings about Dean admitting (on camera, on the pair's upcoming reality series True Tori) that he… » 4/11/14 8:00pm 4/11/14 8:00pm

I'm Very Upset About These Tori and Dean Cheating Rumors

I feel like I'm the only person on earth who watched every episode of Tori & Dean: Inn Love—which was the 2007 reality show where Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott attempted to open a bed and breakfast while Tori was 97 months pregnant with their first child—because every time I reference it and go up top for… » 12/26/13 4:50pm 12/26/13 4:50pm

The $296,133 Christmas: A Financial Tally of Celebrity Gift Guides

In the business of taste-making, holiday gift guides provide an important moment for celebrities with lifestyle brands to communicate their style. But given that celebrities tend to be super rich, are they really the best people to turn to when it comes to shopping lists? How in tune are they with their target demos?… » 12/20/13 4:15pm 12/20/13 4:15pm

Oh Wow, Gwyneth Paltrow Sometimes Eats Things Besides Lawn

As you probably know, Gwyneth Paltrow and Shrek have many things in common, one of which is that they were both in Shakespeare in Love. Another is that they are both like onions. A layer of Gwynnie was peeled away when she revealed to British Cosmopolitan that she has occasionally imbibed things that the rest of us… » 7/06/13 11:30am 7/06/13 11:30am

Lindsay Bluth's Face Overshadows Arrested Development Comeback

It seems like everyone who binged on Arrested Development's Season 4 the moment it hit Netflix (i.e. the entire Internet) has been sipping on some hot ham water and talking about how different Portia De Rossi's face looks on the show. As is often the case in these situations, plastic surgeons were called upon to… » 5/30/13 9:00am 5/30/13 9:00am

See You At The Peach Pit! Donna Martin Graduated 20 Years Ago

These days, there is nothing quainter than the idea of being suspended from graduation ceremonies for being drunk, but it (almost) happened to poor Donna on Beverly Hills, 90210 twenty years ago today. For me, the ultimate Donna episode is almost definitely the one where she catches her mother cheating on her father… » 5/11/13 3:30pm 5/11/13 3:30pm

Jon Gosselin's Ex Is Gonna Be in That Girls Reality Show You Won't Watch

Unfortunately for, uh, all citizens of Earth, the Girls reality show is apparently underway: ABC has picked it up and already chosen a star, a 25-year-old publicist named Hailey Glassman whose achievements include, hand to God, dating Jon Gosselin and being on an episode of My Life is A Lifetime Movie. She's also… » 2/08/13 9:00am 2/08/13 9:00am

Elizabeth Taylor Had a Threesome With JFK and Another Dude in a Pool

In the age of designer drugs and Twitter and cell phone pictures of celebrities grinding with each other to music composed almost entirely of beeps, there's something classy about an old-school Hollywood scandal. Even Lindsay Lohan's sordid exploits can't match those of Elizabeth Taylor, whom Lohan depicts in the… » 10/11/12 9:00am 10/11/12 9:00am
