Toddlers & Tiaras
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be pageant queens!
Toddlers & Tiaras returned last night for its third season and once again, we got a peek into a world where the wild things are spray-tanned, over-indulged and just plain awful. None more so than the little slice of Hell known as Makenzie. Four-years-old, finger-wavingly disrespectful and physically abusive toward her own deluded mother, this little monster made the Real Housewives look like Seventh-Day Adventists.
OK, single ladies, help me out: Do you really have "ex-swaps"?
Watching the premiere of MTV's new reality peep show, Downtown Girls, Tuesday, we saw the show's quintet of horrifically named gal pals (what exactly is a Shallon, Gurj and Klo anyway?!) gather their former mattress giants ...

While we all know that Charmed was about the bewitching Halliwell sisters and the Power of Three that kept them cooking for eight seasons, those of us who have been lucky to feast on the amazing Charmed —The Complete Series edition are fast realizing that Brian Krause's Leo was indeed the man of the mansion. So when the chance orbed in, ya'll know I was more than happy to chat with the original Whitelighter for a spell. Check it out after the jump.
Transformers and 300
So you have a list of people to buy for and no idea what to get them, right? Been there, suffered through that. And children, I can only offer you two options: piss off a bunch of friends over Thanksgiving so you don't have to get them anything, or head to the DVD section. Because nothing says "I put more thought into this than you deserve" than a movie starring some of their fave TV faces. And they're so easy to wrap!

The real livewire is last year's champ, Christian Siriano, the dazzlingly talented and delightful designer whose Emmy-nominated season hits shelves next week.
