So Whitney has left the sunny shores of California and moved to the glitzy Gotham that is New York City. Things are about to get real, right? Or, at least, a lot more fake-real than they were before? Uh, no. The City is a pale shadow of the car-wreck glory that is The Hills, and we've got a breakdown of what exactly is it that The City lacks and The Hills has got. We never thought we'd say this, but we miss the hell out of LC.
Check out our Hills vs. City Gallery!
The Screen Actors Guild Awards were given out last night, and while the winners weren't all that surprising, there were some genuinely awesome moments during the broadcast that deserve recognition. However, since we're fair and balanced pseudo-journalists, we'll also tell you the worst moments, the ones that made us hate celebrities and awards shows and the world. And since we love criticizing celebrities' wardrobes, we'll do the same thing with their outfits! Hit the links below to see them both.
Most of the time we complain about characters on shows that we just hate with a passion and hope would go far, far away. But occasionally shows could be livened up by the reappearance of an old character (and no we don't necessarily mean the dead ghost ones, Denny). Hence the reason we're pretty psyched that George Clooney finally decided to bring back his hunky Dr. Doug Ross to ER (which is the only acceptable reason for them adding on extra episodes) before the show signs off. So we've compiled another list of characters that need to return to their old posts, stat.
For years, Star Trek and Star Wars have maintained a safe distance from each other, only meeting up in fan-made mash-up videos on YouTube. But in this new age of hope, a bridge has been built, and that bridge's name is George Takei. The actor who played Sulu in the original Trek series and in six feature films will be voicing a character in this Friday's episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a first for both franchises. We sat in on a Q&A with the actor to find out what it was like on the Dark Side of sci-fi, as well as what's coming up for him on Heroes.
Ever since he came across the pond from England, Tim Roth has had a long and varied career in Hollywood, from his early days as a Quentin Tarantino favorite to his Oscar nomination for Rob Roy to his high-profile transformation in last summer's The Incredible Hulk. While he has done the occasional TV project, a desire to stay in one place for a while was part of his decision to tackle the role of Dr. Cal Lightman, a deception consultant who can read people's faces like they were books. Backed up by a team of human lie detectors, Roth will be solving crimes every week on the new Fox show Lie to Me (Wed. 9pm), and we jumped at the opportunity to ask the man formerly known as Mr. Orange about the science of lying and why there are so many Brits on our televisions nowadays.
So Bravo decided to experiment with a "To Be Continued" on The Real Housewives of Orange County a couple of weeks ago, leaving us all tied up in knots wondering if that drunk gold digger would hook up with that sober Real Houseson or not until this week. It was all very dramatic. She was wasted and telling him he was very cute and he was basically acting like the date rapist-est date rapist who ever date raped, begging her to make out with him even though she's drunk and engaged, OH NO! So whatever, this stupid show is stupid and who cares if these idiots make out and everything, but cliffhangers are an amazing tactic and Troy was on instead of Nip/Tuck for some reason, so I tuned in last night.
