Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: The Situation's Rough Week

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino

It's been a really rough week — a double whammy — for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, the fourth star to be shown the door on Dancing With The Stars. Sorrentino stormed off the set Monday night after the judges called his Argentine Tango "a terrible mess," upset because they didn't appreciate the dangerous lifts he pulled off with his pro partner, Karina Smirnoff. But he was equally upset that his other hit show, MTV's Jersey Shore, featured him in an extremely unflattering light, slapping his cast mate, Snooki, after he asked her to leave a club, and she refused... read more

Watercooler: Glee Duets It Right

Cory Monteith, Lea Michele

For the second week in a row, the Tuesday night treat that was rapidly going from a hit to a "huh?" nailed it with an episode that had — wait for it — actual plot. No Britney numbers. No forced guest stars. No reasons to check out.

It's amazing how satisfying a show can be when the characters we invested in a year ago get to do something more than set-dress a stunt... read more

30 Rock Cast Prepares to Go Live

Jane Krakowski

NBC's hit comedy 30 Rock will air two live episodes — one for the east coast, one for the west — this Thursday, and Tracy Morgan promises that the audience can expect the unexpected: "Somebody gonna get pregnant!" the star joked.

Tina Fey and company have been working tirelessly over the past week to convert Studio 8H in Rockefeller Plaza, currently home to late night staple Saturday Night Live, into the world of 30 Rock, including Jack's office, Tracy's dressing room... read more

It's sad but true: There's no simpler route to celebrity these days than to be a kid who has a kid. Bristol Palin survived another week on Dancing With the Stars after trotting out her baby, Tripp, for an at-home segment — right before doing a sexy rumba with partner Mark Ballas in front of her beaming parents. (So much for advocating teen abstinence.)

Immediately afterwards, in the seemingly endless finale of MTV's top-rated Teen Mom, the quartet of titular baby mamas... read more

Guest Review: Jackie Collins Takes on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Well, well, well. Isn't this what we've all been waiting for with baited breath?

First of all, no Beverly Hills babe would ever stoop to being called a housewife. How plebeian. How gauche. Hollywood wives please, far more glamorous! And I should know, since I wrote the book about the sleek, groomed, ambitious, social-climbing wives of Hollywood icons. But let's examine the women in question on this new Housewives franchise. They might be affluent, pretty (with a definite nod to various surgical procedures), but do they represent Beverly Hills? They sure give it a big try.

First off, there's Kim and Kyle Richards, sisters who were once child actresses and whose current claim to fame is that they are Paris Hilton's aunts... read more

Martha Plimpton Shines on Raising Hope

Raising Hope

When people see Martha Plimpton, they often think, "Oh, that girl," as in the gawky teen who climbed into the caverns with Mouth, Chunk and the kid with all the cool gadgets in The Goonies. "I turned 14 on that movie," she says. "We had no idea there would be reunions and T-shirts and fan sites 25 years later!"

But while her peers hit rehab and the reality-TV circuit, the daughter of actors Keith Carradine and Shelley Plimpton became a rare thing for child stars — a character and stage actress. She filled her read more
