Earlier this month we learned that MTV has decided to dedicate the upcoming season of The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II will be dedicated to castmembers Diem Brown and Ryan Knight, who both passed away after the season wrapped filming production. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the new season of the show. As you may know, Diem‘s illness resulted in her early exit from the show and we get to see a bit of that at the start of this trailer. The rest of the trailer looks pretty standard so, yeah, it should be a great season. Battle of the Exes II will premiere on MTV on January 6 at 9PM.
Yesterday was a pretty quiet day for me, even tho I did go out last night to meet up for a much overdue dinner hang with my friend Tamar. I haven’t seen her since she moved into her new place but she has been crazy busy getting resettled into her new place. When last I saw her place, it was a crazed jumble of boxes. Over the last few weeks, Tam has transformed her new place into a beautiful home. After we chilled for a bit at her place, we grabbed a bite to eat on Abbot Kinney. After I got home, I got to watch a preview of my friend Darion on his new Bravo TV show Friends to Lovers? and that was my night. More »

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is featured in the new issue of Elle magazine UK and altho the issue isn’t out just yet, the magazine is giving us an early look at his appearance in this new issue. Jamie looks insanely good, as usual, in the photo below from his spread and in his interview, he opens up to the magazine about his first visit to a real life sex dungeon. I guess the guy would go to any lengths to get into a movie character like kinky Christian Grey. Elle has also released a behind the scenes video from Jamie‘s photoshoot which, sigh, you just have to watch. More »

In early October we learned that two of my favorite bands of all time — The Smiths and Nine Inch Nails — were among the nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I am saddened and very disappointed to pass along the news today that neither group made the final induction cut into the Rock Hall‘s Class of 2015. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Lou Reed, Ringo Starr and others — including Green Day — have been announced as inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame … which is great news for those acts. I really had my heart set on both (or at least one) The Smiths and NIN getting into the Rock Hall in their first year of eligibility but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. That said, I am beyond ecstatic that both Joan Jett and Lou Reed are finally in. More »
