Earlier this year, Naomi Campbell entered Tyra Banks territory and started her own modeling competition, The Face. She even snagged up ANTM refugee Nigel Barker to host her Oxygen reality show. While it wasn’t a ratings juggernaut, it received positive reviews and was renewed for a second season. Personally, I loved it. Truth be told, I’d watch anything where Naomi Campbell shows off her beautiful BRF (bitchy resting face).
With Barker in tow, the legendary supermodel takes her show across the pond for a UK version. Taking over for Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova who sat alongside her on the US version, are British model Erin O’Connor and Swedish stunner Caroline Winberg. The three supermodel coaches will chose four girls each to mentor.
Over eight weeks, the three teams will compete in a series of real life fashion industry challenges for some of Britain’s best known brands including Marks & Spencer, i-D magazine and much more. The winner will become the face of Max Factor. The competition starts on Monday, September 30 on Sky Living. Check out the trailer below.
I don’t normally recap Dancing With The Stars, but since I’m enjoying this season so much, I thought I’d give it a try. There’s so many people I’m rooting for. Also, the fact the show airs only once a week now instead of two episodes, makes it much more manageable. I love that the performances and eliminations take place all in one jam-packed night. Much less unnecessary filler. However, the producers still manage to draw out the eliminations with their dramatic lighting and music.
The only thing I don’t like about the new format is the glitter pit replacing the celeb aquarium where the stars watched all the action from above. Also, was it necessary to move the judges to the other side of the dance floor? I digress. Check out week two’s performances below and find out who earned the unwanted distinction of being the first boot.
For all you Cher fans, today is your lucky day. The 67-year-old announced she’s hitting the tour to promote her 26th studio album, Closer To The Truth. Dressed To Kill will be her first tour in eight years, minus a Casesars Place residency in Las Vegas back in 2011. Her last full out road tour was called, ironically enough, the Farewell Tour. Guess it wasn’t a good-bye after all.
“The road is horrible but the concerts are great,” Cher told Today. “I understand why guys in bands tear up hotel rooms and throw TVs out the windows because it’s a very lonely place.”
Speaking of The Today Show, the “Woman’s World” singer performed three tracks to an adoring crowd this morning. In addition to her current dance hit, she belted out the classic “Believe” and “I Hope You Find It” which can be found on her new album in stores tomorrow. Check out the performances and concert tour dates below.
Season 5 of The Voice kicks off this Monday and as always, it begins with a group performance from the coaches. In the past, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green tackled hits from Queen, Prince, The Rolling Stones and Green Day. When Shakira and and Usher filled in, they joined Levine and Shelton on “Come Together” and “With A Little Help From My Friends” by The Beatles.
For the original coaches‘ first performance back together they’re rocking it out on the classic Joan Jett & The Blackhearts cover, “I Love Rock ‘N Roll.” For me, Christina steals the show. She looks and sounds friggin’ fantastic. Check out the performance below.
This movie is not for everyone. First off, if you’re obsessed with Ryan Gosling (as I’m slowly finding out half the man-loving world is) then you’ll want to see him as severe and lean and sexy as ever in this. Second, if you love Asian revenge movies (plays really), then BAM this is up your alley. Third, if you liked the film Drive by director Nicolas Winding Refn then you’ll love this because it’s basically Drive 2, set in Bangkok… with an equally amazing and eerie sound track. Oh, fourth, if you like violence: watch this.
Set in modern day Thailand, this is a revenge film about family honour and drug lord crime. The two protagonists are both severely flawed as they attempt to restore peace to their respective homes. Ryan plays the brother of a murdered child rapist who is tasked by the incredible Kristin Scott Thomas (whom you will remember from Gosford Park
Drop Dead Gorgeous but CERTAINLY not recognize) who acts as matriarch to this f-ed up family and who through horrendous guilt and near-incestual flirtation demands for retribution of her dead son. Ryan is pitted against a retired police officer who murders without shame the worst members of society in this vast asian city. There’s sword fights, massive gun shoot ups, beatings to death with bare hands and a lot of kinky sexy: if you’re into any of that, this movie is worth a look.
School is officially in session! With Jessica Lange as your teacher, you best be on your best behavior. Based on the new American Horror Story: Coven promo, she’s one big bad ass witch.
FX just dropped another video, but this one actually features footage from the upcoming spellbinding season. Along with Lange, we see glimpses of Angela Bassett as voodoo queen Marie Laveau and Kathy Bates as serial killer Madame LaLaurie.
The third season of the spooky series has a lot to live up to. Heading into this weekend’s Emmys, American Horror Story: Asylum leads the pack with 17 nominations. Even though season three is a war of the witches, expect to see a lighter tone than previous years. Along with the drama, there will also be lots of humor. American Horror Story: Coven premieres October 9 at 10 p.m. on FX. Check out the promo below.
Is it me or does this season of The X Factor seem more streamlined? There doesn’t seem to be as many awful auditions as in seasons’ past. While I know some enjoy them, I can do without. At this point, we’ve seen and definitely heard it all.
Check out Thursday’s auditions below. There’s a cutie in the mix that can do some serious damage if he improves. If you only have time to watch one, jump straight to Andrew Scholz. He’s not the second coming by any means, but at least he’s easy on the eyes.
Long before Housewives were synonymous with Bravo, the network relied on five stylish gay guys to bring in the viewers. The second Queer Eye for the Straight Guy premiered, it became a phenomenon, making Ted Allen, Jai Rodriguez, Thom Felicia, Kyan Douglas and Carson Kressley instant celebrities.
The Emmy award-winning show’s premise played with stereotypes that gay men are superior in matters of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design and culture. Eventually, the show shortened its name to just Queer Eye to include women and gay guys as the subject of their makeovers.
This October, Bravo is reuniting the Fab Five for a special titled Queer Eye Reunion: 10 Years Later. My silver fox crush Andy Cohen will host the special where the cast reflects on the ground-breaking series, reveal behind-the-scenes tidbits and give updates on their lives now. My personal favorites were Douglas and Rodriguez. Who were yours? Are you looking forward to the reunion? Sound off below.
