Okay. I’m going to try to stay calm and balanced in my argument against this idea. TLC has just ordered a reality show about a high school in Denver that caters to teen moms by providing day care and nursing facilities on site. Honestly? I’m trying to remain calm, but after years of watching MTV‘s 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom (and being totally obsessed) I’ve recently decided that the show is the absolute worst thing ever invented in the history of television and women and humanity. See? There I go. I’m usually kind of good at presenting a somewhat balanced, non-biased-ish argument, but I cannot with this one! I just can’t. I think these shows are the worst! That’s it! Total rant session going down inside. Oh, and deets about the new show.

Mike Senna is a total genius with a heart of gold, and he’s making children everywhere very, very happy. Well-known for creating an R2-D2 replica back in 2003, Mike took on another project a few years ago; bringing Pixar‘s robot WALL·E to life. Children and adults alike flock to see his spot-on re-creation (I know I’m planning a trip), but Mike had a special group of children in mind as he worked (and worked) on this robot over the last two years. Using the 2008 movie as his only blueprint, Mike studied frame after frame of WALL·E‘s movements and construction. The result? A real, live robot (sort of– it’s controlled by Mike) with ginormous eyes in which you can happily lose yourself. Meet Mike and WALL·E in the video; it’s so amazingly cray, I just had to share it with you guys! Also, you can learn more about WALL·E on Mike‘s blog, here.
And I know he probably gets this alot… but I reaaalllly want to know if his

A little while back we found out that Jenny AKA JWOWW had big plans to film her BFF’s labor and delivery. But now it’s looking like that event (at least in part) will be televised. The Jersey Shore spin-off show Snooki & JWOWW has just been renewed for a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. So everyone who was panicking about losing the two BFFs– or even enjoying the show in small doses (which I occiasionally do)– rest assured that your girls are comin’ back. Oh, and so is The Jersey Shore. Deets and the premiere date for the final season of Seaside highs (and lows), inside.
Yesterday, Trent brought us the news about the Humanitarian Day project via Beyoncé’s website. A little while back we’d be given that cryptic message where the singer simply announced the date “August 19.” But we now know that August 19 is World Humanitarian Day, and that the Queen B would like us to all participate with a simple act of kindness on Twitter or on Facebook. Today, in an effort to further spread her message (and that of The United Nations, with whom she has partnered), Beyoncé appears in a video, encouraging all of us to participate in this social campaign. Check it out, and mark your calendar for August 19. It’s fun to share gossip, but it’s equally fun to share good news and good vibes.
Remember those gorgeous pictures of Miley Cyrus that we saw yesterday? Well, even though she was nude in a couple of them, the pics she’s been tweeting lately are a bit more shocking… at least IMO. Some of you may know that Ms. Miley‘s been hitting up the gym like cray, especially for her Pilates classes. And apparently, it’s paying off. Check out Miley (and Miley‘s waistline) inside.

I’m not sure, but I think Matthew McConaughey has been slowly plotting a quiet but deadly industry takeover. This summer he’s starring in Magic Mike and the newly-released NC-17 crime thriller, Killer Joe. And now he’s managed to catch the eye of the great Marty Scorsese, whose next film, The Wolf Of Wall Street, is in its final stages of casting. It’s just been announced that Matty-boy is officially on, which means he may be officially retiring from his position as universal eye candy. But then again, that’s a job that doesn’t require a lot of commitment. He pretty much just has to show up, so he can probably keep the job even as he joins the ranks of crazy talented actors who’ve done a Scorsese flick. Everybody wins! Deets inside.
It took everything in me to not include any of those Jessica Biel pictures from the other day. Anyway, I found another one of her at a different Total Recall premiere and her dress was better than that pink one– although I still say that she looked pretty flawless. So there. Got my Jessica Biel fix.
Aside from Jess, my absolute favorite celeb photo of the week goes to Richard Simmons– you will surely die of laughter when you see this pic of him in the gallery… OMG. The best. And when you come back from your completely metaphorical death, check out Katy Perry‘s waldrobe malfunction by way of a lime green dress that she clearly borrowed from one of her stripper friends (hey, we’ve all been there… right?), and Rachel Zoe stylin’ and profilin’ with baby in tow. There’s also some pretty sweet Bieber fever, and a few prego chics who I gotta lurve. Even though I’m totally annoyed that they didn’t come hook me up with their galm squads back when I was pushing 40 weeks. I can forgive them, but I won’t forget. Elton John and Neil Patrick-Harris also appeared to be having the best week ever, with their fams out in St. Tropez. Check out these celebs and more in the gallery!
