J. Law Kinda Slayed as Guest Host
As we learned earlier in the week, actress Jennifer Lawrence played guest host on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live and I am happy to say, she did a really fantastic job. Everyone knows that SNL has a pretty good track record of being NOT funny but every once in a while (and thankfully, moreso most recently) the show gives us a pretty funny ep … last night was one such ep. The show opened with a skit that poked fun at Lance Armstrong, Manti Te’o and Jodie Foster (who all gave us a lot to talk about in the past week) and then delivered a few skits that actually made me laugh. Click above to watch the opening skit and then click below to check some a few of my personal fave moments from last night’s show.
"Some of my best friends now are girls who allegedly dated me"
Out CNN reporter and talk show host Anderson Cooper opened up on his daytime talk show Anderson Live about his experience with dating girls when he was much younger. Like many gay men, Anderson dated girls in adolescence while he was trying to figure out his homosexuality. The clip is very candid and very cute … and will resonate with other gays, both men and women, who found that they tried to be someone they are not in order to fit in to the “norm”. I love that Anderson is finally out of the closet because he can have candid conversations like this openly, conversations that, I think, will do much to help normalize the reality that gay people exist in this country :)
Yes, I'm About To Get On Some Judgemental Ish Real Quick
Earlier this week we learned that All My Babies Mamas, a new reality show that was supposed to come to the Oxygen network, had been cancelled. I know thousands of people everywhere were rejoicing over this news, and while I think it was ultimately for the best, I was definitely a bit reluctant to completely dismiss the series right away. One thing that kept bugging me was that, although Shawty Lo and his 10 different baby mamas were pretty distressing to watch, there are sooo many other shows that are, IMO, just as bad. Enter MTV‘s Teen Mom. At the very least, we could argue that Shawty Lo was a man who was involved in his childrens’s lives. He def didn’t come off like Dad of the Year but at least he and his baby mamas all had custody of their kids! Jenelle from Teen Mom does not have custody of her first son. and if you ever watched the show you know that it’s probably a good thing (although her Mom, who’s raising little Jace, was pretty f’d up in her own special ways). Anyway, Jenelle recently got married and has just announced that she’s expecting a second child. So yeah. I have big plans to judge her and everyone else who supports her– including the folks over at MTV. Join me inside for more! Again, I warn you, I’m really about to judge these people. Okay. You’ve been warned. Don’t judge me back, lmao!

This is going to rule
Jennifer Lawrence will be the host on Saturday Night Live this weekend and NBC has released the promo videos for her episode. As you can see, she stars with newly engaged SNL player Jason Sudeikis in her promo videos and they make a pretty great team. These clips are funny, cute and a good sign that this week’s ep of SNL will be worth watching for sure!
"The Worldwide Exclusive"
Yesterday we learned that disgraced Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong agreed to a televised sit down interview with Oprah Winfrey where he reportedly confessed to doping/using performance enhancing drugs to cheat his way to 7 Tour de France wins.

The interview will be divided into 2 parts, with part 1 airing tomorrow night at 9PM ET and part 2 airing Friday night at 9PM ET.

3 Months Earlier than Usual
For the past 7 years, new seasons of Dexter have premiered on Showtime in early Fall … either late September or early October (depending on the calendar that year). This year, the 8th season of Dexter will premiere 3 months earlier in late June, which means we will be spending our hot Summer Sunday nights with our favorite serial killer. Even better … the head honcho at Showtime is giving us hope that Dexter season 8 won’t be the last season of the series … despite what we’ve been lead to believe. Could it be? We get Dexter even sooner AND we might get a season 9?! More »

Eyes See you
Back in November we got our first look at the first video teaser for the upcoming 3rd season of Game of Thrones on HBO. Today we get to see a new video teaser that doesn’t show us any new footage from the series but does remind us that the new season of GoT is coming. As you can see above, the video features the three-eyed raven from Bran‘s dreams … but you’ll have to watch the embed above to see what the bird gets up to. It won’t be too much longer now … Game of Thrones season 3 premieres on HBO on March 31.

Finally Coming Clean
Back in October we learned that 7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong was stripped of his 7 title wins after it was determined by the United States Anti-Doping Agency that he was guilty of cheating by using performance enhancement drugs/techniques. Today we learn that Lance has finally confessed to the allegations in a new interview with Oprah Winfrey that is scheduled to air this Thursday. At this point, we don’t yet know for sure exactly what Lance said in the interview and to what extent he “comes clean” but according to sources present when the interview took place, he does admit wrongdoing.
