Deena Nicole Cortese
The Jersey Shore crew's newest housemate, Deena Nicole Cortese, hit the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards and revealed a few tidbits about adjusting to of the house of hookups—and fame.
"Oh my God, it's surreal!" Cortese, originally an off-camera pal of Snooki's, told TV Guide Magazine about her newfound fame, which she's already experiencing months before she makes her official debut on the reality series. "I have fan pages already, and people Twittering me, and I'm just like 'I just got out of the house two days ago!'"

Let's not be too harsh on Chelsea Handler. It wasn't all her fault that the VMA's stank this year.
No, there was a lot wrong with last night's show. First off, about 90% of the performances were autotuned monstrosities — none worse than Best New Artist zygote Justin Bieber, who took to a stage outside of L.A.'s Nokia Theatre for a mall tour-caliber rendition of his hit, "Baby," which sounded like he was singing through an airplane propeller. Kid was more dubbed than a Godzilla movie...
Masi Oka, Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan
Heroes alums Masi Oka (Hiro) and Jack Coleman (Noah "Horn-Rimmed Glasses" Bennet) have landed fun new gigs on CBS procedurals, both as characters named Max. "I'm playing an odd little man named Max Bergman," says Hawaii Five-0 addition Masi, who'll begin recurring in Episode 4. "He's brilliant at two things — being the Honolulu medical examiner and playing the piano, which he does in his autopsy-room office to help him think."
Meanwhile, on The Mentalist, Jack pops up...
Anna Paquin and Dennis O'Hare
"When am I not in trouble?" Sookie quips to TV's hottest werewolf, Alcide, when he arrives back on the scene after a long absence. She's not kidding. This damsel is in perpetual distress.

Question: I'm starting to think Elisabeth Moss is going to have a major problem to deal with next summer: deciding which Mad Men episode to submit for Emmy consideration! Peggy has always been one of Mad Men's most complex and intriguing characters, but this season it just feels like Moss and the writers providing her material have been stepping it up more and more in each episode. I can't decide which Peggy moment has been my favorite so far this season: her dabblings in '60s counterculture, her moving reaction to the news of Trudy Campbell's pregnancy, her clever takedown of the horrid new art director, or any of her scenes with Don in the heartbreaking "The Suitcase" episode. What really is blowing my mind is that we're only about halfway through this season of Mad Men. If it's this good already, I can't even imagine how great the climactic episodes are going to be! I just wanted to check in and see if you have been enjoying Peggy lately as much as I have been...
