Ariel Is Now Living With Her Older Sister
Ariel Winter is the 14 year-old actress who plays Alex Dunphy on ABC’s Modern Family. If you watch the show then you’ve surely fallen in lurve with the super-smart, super-snarky teen who plays daughter to Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen‘s characters. Unfortunately, Ariel has some very real family drama occurring in her own household. Her mother– who lost custody of Ariel‘s sister almost twenty years ago– has now lost custody of Ariel Winter, following allegations of physical and emotional abuse. We’ve seen what kind of damage a not-so-great mom can do to a young actress (shouts-out to Dina Lohan), so this is really a very scary, but ultimately hopeful report. Click inside to learn more.
Anne Hathaway, Anne Hathaway, Anne Hathaway
This Saturday night, Live from New York, Anne Hathaway will host Saturday Night Live for the third time in her storied career. And while these preview promo videos are usually not that great (sometimes cringingly bad), I think Anne‘s clips are fairly decent. The third promo is my fave so you’ll have to watch the video the whole way thru to see it but … I think you’ll enjoy. Set those DVRs for Saturday night, y’all. Here comes Anne, again … again.
Season 2, Episode 6
It’s Monday evening and my electricity’s back on, so it’s time to do the damn thing, Revenge style! Last week’s recap was totally cray, as per usual, and I hate that I didn’t get to read a lot of the comments right away. But Hurricane Sandy was putting in work, so what are you gonna do? This week we have just as much drama to make sense of, so click inside for more!

Nineties Nostalgia Can Be A Dangerous Thing
Just the other day we heard amazing news about the possibility of one of my favorite shows coming to theatres. PITNBRS Randal, Joan, Adriana, and Jennie all joined me in celebrating the “return” of HBO‘s series Bored To Death, and now we’re getting news about another one of my fave shows making a comeback. Except… I don’t know that I should be as excited about this one. Boy Meets World, the re-runs of which I still occasionally watch, may be coming back to television via a follow-up series on the Disney channel. The show would center on the daughter of beloved 90s TV couple Cory and Topanga. Sooo… Girl Meets World? I dunno y’all. But we have deets inside!

A little while back we found out that Emmy-award winning comedian Louis C.K. would be hosting Saturday Night Live and I was ridiculously excited to see how cray-cray things would get. But nothing could have prepared me for his opening monologue about old ladies he lurves, or the Abraham Lincoln sketch to end all Abraham Lincoln sketches. All this time I’ve been getting excited to see Daniel Day-Lewis in the upcoming biopic, but now I just wanna spend the rest of my life watching Louis C.K. perform all of his stand-up routines as the 16th president. Click the video above to see what I mean, and check out more videos from last night’s episode– including the best opening monologue ever, Fun‘s awesome performance of Some Nights, and the hilarious Hurricane Sandy address from Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Chris Christie.
Cody = The Genius Who Brought Us 'The United States Of Tara.'
Diablo Cody has changed a lot of lives over the last few years… and her name has gotten more and more recognizable as well (shouts-out to PITNBR cringefest). In 2007 she blew up (and won an Oscar) after writing the screenplay for Juno, and she went on to write the magic that was the Emmy-award winning Showtime series The United States Of Tara and Charlize Theron‘s 2011 flick Young Adult. Now she’s getting ready to bring a new single-camera romantic comedy series to my new favorite network, ABC. I’m pumped! Click inside to learn more!
Please, Gods, Let This Happen
If you ever saw a single episode of the HBO series Bored To Death, then this may be the best news ever. After three seasons, the perfect show (perfect!) was inexplicably cancelled and I haven’t been the same since… but true love never dies. And I’d like to think all of my longing has not been in vain, as Ted Danson (who starred alongside Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis in the show) is spilling some beans about a possible Bored To Death movie in the works.

Meet This Week's Hot-Person-Who-I-Didn't-Know-I-Was-Into-Until-Recently!
Do y’all remember when we watched the new trailer for 28 Hotel Rooms a couple of weeks back? And I was all like, ‘I think Chris Messina is hot but I’m not 100% sure…’ Well PITNBRS Sam, Ria, KiTX, Fifi4life, Tori, Kelly, Jessica, and Neicy all responded in the affirmative, each with their own unique experience in his hotness. Some people find him hot on The Mindy Project or The Newsroom, while others remember realizing how hot he was in shows like Six Feet Under and Damages. I also learned that he was in the movie Ira & Abby, which I can’t wait to watch. But FIRST I’m watching that new flick (28 Hotel Rooms), which is currently downloading itself into my life from the iTunes Store. While I’m waiting, I figured we could celebrate the hotness (and, okay, talentedness) that is Chris Messina. Everyone, meet this week’s Hot-Person-Who-I-Didn’t-Know-I-Was-Into-Until-Recently! And yes, I know we haven’t had a hot person since Christina Hendricks last month, but once I fell in lurve with her I got lost in a Netflix/Mad Men vortex, and was all distracted but I’m fine now. On to Chris!

"Ain't Nobody Gonna Run Me Off That ****** Show!"
A little while back we found out that Nicki Minaj was getting a three-part reality series event on E! I wasn’t sure if I could take more Nicki Minaj, but since I did catch a little show she had on MTV2 a while back (that was actually kind of cool) I was hoping this new show would give us a glimpse into the real life of Nicki née Onika Tanya Maraj. Today we get our first look at the show Nicki Minaj: My Truth via this 30-second trailer and it looks like something her fans will really enjoy. Cameras follow the pop star as she rehearses for her world tour, launches her perfume line, and prepares for the release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up. She also says some ish at the end that could very well be an allusion to her highly publicized beef with Mariah Carey. Peep the video above!
Nicki Minaj: My Truth airs on E! this Sunday at 10:30 pm EST. Will you be watching?
