In this week's compilation of pop culture crap, Dr. Oz and Oprah pop the world's biggest pimple, Wendy Williams deep fries one of her wigs, and Michaele Salahi tries her hardest to cry.


1.) Oprah pops world's biggest pimple.
Sure, it was a fake pimple, but that didn't diminish the excitement of one audience member who is a self-confessed pimple-popping addict.

2.) Wendy Williams deep fries wig.
It only made sense, really.

3.) Bill Cosby is still a grump.
But Patti LaBelle refers to his behavior as "special."

4.) Foundation fail.
The prize for this week's challenge on ANTM was a shopping spree in one aisle of Wal-Mart (remember this is the "high fashion" cycle!), and Kayla was sure of the fact that her skin tone was "classic ivory."

The punchline came immediately after she said that, when it was obvious that she chose the wrong foundation color.

5.) Junk/Drunk
The two words basically sum up the entire Jersey Shore experience.

6.) The Situation tried.
The Situation was kicked off DWTS this week, but not for a lack of trying…new hairstyles and makeup.

7.) Drug dealer wins case on Judge Judy.
She was beyond weird. It should be noted that both litigants—the heroin addict and her pusher—are from Lynn, MA (where my husband spent his formative years). The town is famous for its crime rate, which inspired this well-known poem:

Lynn, Lynn, city of sin
You never come out the way you went in
Ask for water, they give you a gin
the girls say no, but always give in

8.) "All terrorists are Muslim."
This morning on Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade weighed in Bill O'Reilly's appearance this week on The View. Has he never heard of Timothy McVeigh? Or the most recently hijacked plane?

9.) Andy Cohen's closet.

10.) Michaele Salahi desperately tries to cry.
The Real Housewives of D.C. reunion episode wasn't all that exciting, but worth the hour just for Michaele's attempt at sadness. It's unclear if she's unable to actually express such an emotion due to Botox or due to the fact that she's just a crappy actress.



Ah the Salahi's...I must admit I am a bit obsessed with them. They never cease to amaze me with their delusional (non)explanations. Last night reunion show was more of the same and I can't wait until next week when they actually get to the White House issue...though I imagine we will just get more non answers.

With regard to Michaele's entry on this week's list we also saw this on her announcement on TV that she has MS. Both then and on last nights episode she makes this little crying face, pushes her lips together and shakes her head, indicating that she is so upset she can't speak. There are never any actual tears and there is no transitional period. When you get really upset it takes a minute to bring yourself back to normal. Michaele's MO is to make the tearless crying face and then the very next second be smiling her "plastic-not-fantastic) barbie doll smile. This indicates to psychologists, body language experts and anyone with a drop of common sense that the emotion is not real. But boy does she try!
