Mariah Carey measured her eight hours on HSN this week in "moments." She had a "dual moment," a "full-on evening moment," a "push moment," a "genius moment," a "transitional summer moment," a "fragrant moment," and a "retro moment of gypsy whatever," among them. We've collected many of her "moments"...
The Daily Show put an ingenious reel together of CNN's Don Lemon expressing bewilderment at various on-air quirks and soft-news segments (stuff like how much it would cost to enroll in the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry or a guy who dresses as a devil to illustrate just how hot it is outside). The segment, "CNN Anchor Don Lemon appears to not care for CNN," courtesy of The Daily What, and it's hilarious...
On Monday's Hoarders (9/8c, A&E) we meet Ron, who seems like a garden-variety hoarder until he reveals that he keeps an open flame on his stove "at all times." He reasons that it helps warm the house, and that it's not a fire hazard because it can't reach any of the thousands of pieces of paper he has crammed in his house.
Beavis and Butt-Head
MTV has unveiled the first footage of the new season of Beavis and Butt-Head, which is set to return in October with its first new episodes since 1997. Watching this is like going home, if your home is a place full of doofy chuckling where people say "bunghole" regularly...
Almost everything Tyra Banks says is nonsense, but she really outdid herself on Thursday's episode of Good Morning America. Sitting down with Robin Roberts, Banks immediately started spouting off about her upcoming young-adult novel Modelland, which sounds exactly what you'd get if you crossed Harry Potter with America's Next Top Model. Within 30 seconds, she was using the made-up word "Intoxibellas" and describing the single, giant golden eyebrow she was wearing as a "smize" (which is Banks' made-up portmanteau that means "smiling with your eyes"). Maybe a smize is what you use to smize in Modelland? It's one of those noun-verbs (like "iron" or "Swiffer"). At least Banks' nonsense is versatile...
Below is an amusing Paris Hilton interview from Wednesday's Good Morning America. She's confronted with the idea that the famous-for-being-famous celebs of contemporary pop culture that she helped indoctrinate and sometimes befriended (like Kim Kardashian) have eclipsed her reach. She's asked about the anemic ratings of her unpleasant Oxygen show, The World According to Paris. Finally, when anchor Dan Harris wonders if she worries about her "moment having passed," she looks at her publicist and leaves the hot seat.
That's all telling. But what would have been even more telling would have been to air the "long, heated conversation with Hilton and her publicist" that Harris describes...
Jenna Fischer, Jay Leno
The Office's Jenna Fischer gave "the exclusive" on the sex of her baby to Jay Leno (and by extension, the world) on Tuesday's Tonight Show. In the clip below, you can see her tell him that she'll be having a boy come September, and that she saved this information just for Jay. Aww...
Jennifer Lopez appeared on HSN to hawk her new Love and Light fragrance two weeks before she announced her split with Marc Anthony — although in retrospect, she may have been signaling it. We put together the video montage below of J.Lo handling the question of Anthony during her six hours on live TV on July 2, and while none of these jump out as clear indicators of imminent divorce, together they paint one uncomfortable picture...
As a DJ played Justin Bieber's hit "One Less Lonely Girl" during a Malibu, Calif., wedding reception, the singer happened to be walking by along with girlfriend Selena Gomez — and decided to crash.
"We heard a party so we decided to just come. So let's party," Bieber said on the disc jockey's microphone. Bieber and Gomez hung around a few minutes to take photos and meet the bride and groom.
