Twitterverse Rallies Around Their Beloved Feathered Friend
I know I’m a lil’ late with this one, seeing as how there are already a million blog posts on the best Big Bird memes, inspired by last night’s first 2012 Presidential Debate. However, I’m just now getting to watch the debate, so you can imagine the look on my face this morning, having not watched it and having no clue why ‘Big Bird‘ was the new ‘Invisible Chair’. But I totally get the joke now! And it’s either really funny or really sad that of all the crazy ish that was said last night, Big Bird is mainly what we’re all focusing on. Well, okay… that’s unfair. Truth be told, lots of people are offering real, productive criticism that isn’t even sarcastic or tongue-in-cheek or anything. Kudos to the guys at NPR; looking forward to reading this article about why Presidents suffer in the debates and this one about all the lies both candidates told, after I share these Big Bird tweets with y’all :)
"I thought we resolved it yesterday but ..."
Oh shizz, things are heating up between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey … AGAIN! One day after the two of them got into a screaming, cussing match during American Idol auditions this week, the pair called a truce the day after (yesterday). As I understand it, the ladies were able to work together successfully without things getting out of hand … that is, until TODAY happened. Barbara Walters shared on The View today that Mariah told her personally that Nicki threatened her with a gun (which was reported yesterday). Nicki caught wind of this and went OFF on a tangent on her official Twitter profile earlier today … in fact, she’s still tweeting. Click below to watch video of what Barbara Walters said Mariah told her then read the tweets that Nicki posted in response. It’s crazy, people. More »

The Photographic Evidence Is Really Piling Up
Over the last few days there’s been hella buzz about Rihanna and Chris Brown… as in, more than the usual amount of buzz. And I was willing to ignore the first handful of rumors, but now the evidence is kind of overwhelming. We saw Chris and Rihanna smooch at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, but that could have been a friendly smooch. Earlier in the summer Rihanna admitted to still being in love with him, but maintained that they were only working on their “friendship.” Now multiple sources (and multiple PICTURES) are confirming that the two have been everywhere together, sometimes openly, as if they’re not even trying to hide it. And maybe they shouldn’t have to hide their relationship… right? Or wrong? Click inside to see the pictures and learn more.

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Is Not One Of Them, Sadly
Okay so last week, it actually happened. I actually sat down, remote in hand, and went cray-cray on my DVR. Although my old Sarah Lawrence professors wouldn’t be especially impressed, I’ve been saying for ages that I have no idea what’s going on with television and it’s been getting annoying. When I watched the 2012 Emmy Awards I was so clueless, but also so excited to start watching some of the shows that I saw being celebrated. So last week I recorded the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, Modern Family, Scandal (duh), Vegas, Chrissy & Mr. Jones, and a show hella PITNBRS kept mentioning to me, Revenge. It’s been intense, lol! Oh, and I also tried my best to make it through an entire episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. More on that, and five reasons you totally shouldn’t kill your TV this week, inside!
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
You know… it can be really hard being a celebrity. There’s paparazzo. Bloggers. And $250,000 manicures that you don’t actually have to pay for. Lol. Okay. Celebrity’s a trade-off, and Kelly Osbourne recently got a free manicure of epic proportions, but she still had to pay for it. Fans and Twitter followers were outraged when Kelly tweeted about her Emmy Awards manicure. Click inside to find out what a $250K manicure looks like. Hint: it looks a lot like a $30 manicure, but that’s not the point!

Her Dress Remained Intact
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara was spotted leaving her North Houston hotel in New York City and she looked pretty awesome. The actress has been making headlines recently for suffering a wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions at the Emmy Awards. Although, Sofia may not have been suffering so badly, since she was the one who put herself on blast, tweeting a Twit pic like no other, lol. I’ll admit, I’m just now recording the Emmy award-winning Modern Family on my DVR; I’ve never watched before but Sofia had me cracking up so hard over that pic! And I’ve heard so many good things, I just gotta watch. Oh, and photogs also caught Sofia arriving at Kmart in NYC where she’s getting ready to launch her own line, which you can see here. Like I said, Sofia looks amazing (the hair, the gold bangles, etc.) and that smile is sooo infectious… but my fave part of the pics is the little kid in the white shirt tryna holla at Sofia on the sidewalk, lol! Peep the gallery for more!
