Earlier this week we learned the somewhat surprising news that the blatantly anti-gay company Chick-Fil-A has decided to stop donating funds to anti-gay organizations. Honestly, I felt the reversal was too good to be true but I tried to keep an open, optimistic mind. Today we learn that it seems like we’ve been duped. CFA owner Dan Cathy has NOT confirmed that his company will stop funding anti-gay organizations and has, in fact, participated just this past weekend in a fundraising event that raised money for an anti-gay organization. Despite the hope that the company has seen the light, it appears that they are just trying to find new ways to continue their homophobia in the shadows. More »

For years I’ve been wondering if Rashida Jones‘s immense sex appeal is something anybody else is picking up on. And apparently, yes. People are picking up. Finally. The Parks And Recreation actress (also famed for her roles in The Office, The Social Network, and most recently Celeste & Jesse Forever), is featured in Flaunt magazine and she’s so ridiculously sexy it’s awkward… mainly for that Miranda Kerr photo shoot we posted earlier. Get your oohs and ahhs on, inside!
Wow. What a bizzy day it’s been already around here in LA. After a few days of notsomuch to share in my TV Guide posts to OMG so much to share, I’m just really happy to have so much to talk about today. Last night was a fun night. David and I shared a quite birthday celebration together, which was very nice. I also got to hang out with Ollie in person and via Apple FaceTime as well. I also spent part of my night chatting with Emma and Darion on FaceTime, which was a lot of fun. Today, my iPhone 5 arrived just before the Space Shuttle Endeavor flew overhead here in LA on its arrival in SoCal where it will remain on display in a space museum. SO MUCH GOING ON and it’s only midday for me. OY! More »
It’s no secret that Amanda Bynes is a bit of a mess these days. From a DUI arrest, to multiple hit-and-run accidents, to a suspended license, to an impounded vehicle, to very bizarre behavior in public … her life has been a veritable circus for the past few months but, really, she’s been on a downward spiral for at least a year, maybe longer. As a result of all of the drama in her life, the people who work for her have decided to jump ship … jump sinking ship. In one fell swoop, Amanda‘s agent, her publicist and her lawyer have all decided to dump her as a client. Dang. More »

Ummmm, nobody talk to me right now! I am having a jam session of epic proportions, lol! We’ve heard some of the awesome a cappella songs from the upcoming movie Pitch Perfect (like No Diggity and that crazy Bruno Mars/Nelly mash-up), but today because we are PITNB and because our readers are the absolute friggen best (and they totally heard PITNBR nicole‘s secret wish for a soundtrack) we get first dibs on the complete Pitch Perfect soundtrack before its digital release on September 25! The amazing selection of medleys and mash-ups comes to you courtesy of the Tony award-nominated Avenue Q director Jason Moore and seven-time Grammy award-winning duo The Underdogs. I’m not gonna lie y’all, I skipped right to their rendition of I Saw The Sign, lol. But now I’m listening to the whole thing and it is so crazy fun! Flo Rida never sounded so good… and the Like A Virgin/No Diggity… riff-off is gonna have y’all pumped. I promise.
Enjoy! And let me know if you have a favorite track. I absolutely cannot pick one right now. Good times.
