"What if En Vogue got back together ...?"
OMG OMG OMG!!! After the fiasco that was the failed Aaliyah biopic movie that aired on Lifetime last weekend, I was pretty certain that the only thing that could get me to tune in and watch their channel again would be the forthcoming Whitney Houston biopic movie (due out next year, surely to piss off the world again) … but I *JUST* found out that Lifetime will air on Saturday night a TV movie titled An En Vogue Christmas which tells the fictional take of the members of En Vogue reuniting to perform an Xmas concert to save a concert theater. As I understand it, former En Vogue member Dawn Robinson is planning to sue the network because she has been excluded from the movie … SO YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE GOOD/TERRRRRRRIBLE! OMG. An En Vogue Xmas movie with most of the members of En Vogue playing En Vogue. My head just exploded. I will deff be tuning in to watch this movie when it airs on Lifetime on Saturday night … WILL YOU JOIN ME?
Back in July we got an eyeful of the Warwick Rowing Team that decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia with their nakedness. Earlier this month, we were reminded of the great work they continue to do in this area of nakedness. Today we learn that the University of Nottingham Field Hockey Team has also decided to get naked in order to fight homophobia in sports and are sharing the video above of their equally hard and very important work. The video really speaks for itself. It’s probably wise to warn that the video is NSFW but in the fight for homophobia, we do what we must. Thanks for your efforts, guys. Please keep up the good work.
Prepare to Cry
Last week we learned the very sad news that MTV star of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge series Diem Brown lost her long fight with cancer and passed away at the far too young age of 32. Earlier this week, we read a lovely tribute written for Diem by her on-again/off-again boyfriend and fellow castmate on the MTV Challenges Chris CT Tamburello and today we get to see the 12 minute memorial video that was shown at Diem‘s funeral this week. The video has been released online by the family so that it can be shared with her legion of fans online. It’s a difficult video to watch, I’m telling you right now. Diem was a shining light in this world and she will be missed. Rest well, Diem, we love you.
Last year, Hostel director Eli Roth revealed that he directed unused music video footage the year before for Marilyn Manson that features Lana Del Rey that ended up being “so sick” that it sat “locked in a vault”. Today, we see that a portion of that previously unseen footage has made its way to the Internets. In the NSFW clip embedded above, we see a bit of disturbing imagery, including a scene where Lana Del Rey appears to be sexually assaulted (by, it looks like, director Eli Roth). This, folks, is what happens when Eli Roth, Marilyn Manson and LDR all decide to collaborate together.

With musical guest Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson
Cameron Diaz has a new movie to promote, Annie, and as such, she has been tapped as the guest host of Saturday Night Live this weekend. Cam will be joined by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson as the musical guests so at the very least, you must tune in to watch their live performance of their new song Uptown Funk. It’s highly unlikely that SNL will suddenly get funny this weekend but … one can always hope.
“I remember a lot of pain . . . "
For a few weeks now, Bill Cosby has been at the center of a firestorm of controversy in the wake of various women alleging that Cosby had raped them. These rape allegations have existed for years but they’ve recently come to the forefront after a stand up comedian made a joke a few weeks ago referencing the years of Cosby rape allegations. Then, one after the other, women have come forward to tell their stories regarding sexual abuse they say they suffered at the hands of Bill Cosby. Last night, model Janice Dickinson made an appearance on Entertainment Tonight to reveal that she, too, had been raped by Bill Cosby back in 1982. She says he drugged her before he assaulted her … which is something that Cosby used to joke about in his stand up routines. Wow. Netflix announced previously that Bill Cosby would be getting his own comedy special but, in the wake of these rape allegations, they have decided to postpone the special. Cosby, for his part, denies everything. Click below to hear Janice share her story, in her own words. More »
Have Courage and Be Kind
Back in May we got our first tease of the upcoming live-action Disney film Cinderella and yesterday, we got a sneak peek of the film’s first full-length trailer. Today, at last, we get to check out the just-released first trailer and get a really good look at the characters we all know and love as they will appear in this new film adaptation. Disney‘s Cinderella stars Lily James as Ella/Cinderella, Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine/The Evil Step Mother, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as Prince Charming and Helena Bonham Carter as The Fairy Godmother. It’s a classic tale that we already know, retold for a new audience. The look and color of this trailer reminds me a lot of Mirror Mirror, that horrible retelling of Snow White that came out in 2012 but I’m hopeful that Cinderella will turn out much better. What do you think of this trailer? I love Cate Blanchett as The Evil Step Mother but I totally rolled my eyes at seeing Helena Bonham Carter as The Fairy Godmother. HMMM. Do you love this … or nah?

Everybody Dance Now
The DVD/Blu-Ray version of Guardians of the Galaxy is on the way and in order to inspire sales of the release, Marvel Studios has released a portion of the gag reel that is included on the DVD/Blu-Ray (due out on December 9). Check out the embed above to watch Ronan accept Star-Lord‘s challenge of a winner take all dance-off. Sigh. If only this scene was included in the final version of the film. Sigh.
Back in July we first heard that serious discussions were underway for the production of a Sons Of Anarchy prequel series to occur after the current 7th and final season of the show finishes its run next month. Today we revive those hopes for a SoA prequel series thanks to a new interview with SoA actors Kim Coates and Theo Rossi. The guys appeared on Larry King Now to promote the final episodes of Sons of Anarchy and Larry asked them their thoughts on the possibility of a SoA prequel series. Watch the video above to see what the guys think about a prequel and the possibility that one of them might appear on the show.
