Ellen, Chris, Julia ... then NPH
Last week we learned the brilliant news that actor/showman Neil Patrick Harris signed on to host the 87th annual Academy Awards next year but today we learn that Neil wasn’t the Academy‘s first choice for host. In fact, he was the 4th choice for the gig … behind Ellen DeGeneres (who was the first choice, who was reportedly BEGGED to host again) and a couple of other funny folks. Personally, I think NPH is the ONLY choice to host the Oscars next year but, apparently, the Academy believed otherwise. More »

This baby slays all
Ever since we allowed Blue Ivy to reintroduce herself at the MTV VMAs, I feel like the world has been a better place. Few things have brought me greater joy than those Vines of her dancing to Mama Beyoncé‘s Flawless. And now we have this amazing behind-the-scenes video that shows us some of the serious work that went into Beyoncé‘s Video Vanguard performance. But the best part is listening to Blue‘s sweet voice as she talks to her mom at the 3:48 mark. Peep the video for more!
Mrs. McConaughey, FTW
You know it’s been a special kind of day when it’s 8:30 PM, and your eyes are hella blurry. But… blurry eyes or no— we must talk fashion! I believe I am the only person in the universe who loved what Lena Dunham wore to the Emmy Awards… and I liked what Amber Rose wore to the VMAs. And on that note, I’m ducking out of here before y’all have the chance to disown me, LOL. Peep the gallery for more!
P.S. Okay, but my favorite dress that I’m not embarrassed to say I loved was Lizzy Caplan‘s—wowza! Oh, and Camila Alves who always slays all.

It's a ...
Last May it was rumored that actress Hayden Panettiere and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko got pregnant and today, we not only learn that the rumor is true but we also learn the sex of the couple’s baby … which was accidentally revealed on the red carpet of the 66th annual Emmy Awards last night. Hayden confirmed her pregnancy a few days ago when she accepted The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but, as I understand it, intended to keep the sex of the baby private until it was born. While talking with E! News last night on the Emmys red carpet, Hayden accidentally let slip the sex of her incubating fetus. Click below to see Hayden rockin’ her bump on the red carpet and find out if she is having a girl or a boy. More »
"He made us laugh"
Last week we learned that comic/actor Billy Crystal was tasked with delivering the memorial speech for the late Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards this year and last night, he did just that. Billy‘s memorial to his dear friend Robin was heartfelt, funny and full of love. I had a feeling when he started speaking that his speech was going to make me cry … and it did. Click the embed above to watch Billy Crystal deliver this loving speech about his late friend … OUR beloved friend, Robin Williams.
While Beyoncé was busy SLAYING the MTV Video Music Awards with her amazing performance and family, mama-to-be Kelly Rowland was also in the building doing a little promo work of her own. Kelly walked the red carpet to show off her growing baby bump and as you can see below, she was a vision of beauty. Kelly was seated right next to Jay Z and Blue Ivy in audience and enjoyed a front row performance when Beyoncé was on stage … and therefore, got to see little Blue Ivy‘s performance up close, too. It really looked like Kelly had a great night last night. More »
