Shania Twain Asks “Why Not?” On OWN

In: Donovan, TV Shows

When Oprah Winfrey first revealed her arsenal of shows premiering on OWN, the one I was most excited about was Shania Twain’s reality show. Since OWN debuted, I’ve really enjoyed Lisa Ling’s show and the Behind The Scenes look at Oprah’s final season of her hit daytime talk show. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about Gayle King’s talk show nor the Mark Burnett “Search for the Next TV Star” competition. Both are huge snoozefests if you ask me. Hopefully Twain’s foray into reality will not only be a big hit, but also an entertaining watch.

OWN released a sneak peek of Twain’s new series called “Why Not?” and it looks good. It doesn’t have the reality cliches of catfights, drunken rants or other juvenile drama we’ve become accustomed to, but instead it features real genuine raw emotion. The series will chronicle Shania’s emotional journey from heartbreak to get back on top (where she belongs). The Canadian country superstar had her world turned upside down, when her marriage ended with Robert “Mutt” Lange due to an affair he had with Twain’s best friend. Shady, shady, shady. As a result, Twain went through a personal downward spiral into darkness.

Get Your First Look At Harry Potter’s Final Chapter

In: Donovan, Movies

It’s almost here. The Harry Potter saga which inspired a new generation to read and a successful string of movies, is finally coming to a close. The first half of Harry Potter’s final chapter, hit theaters in 2010 while the second installment is set to premiere this year. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 isn’t hitting a cineplex near you until July 15, 2011 in both 3D and in 2D, but we’ve got your first look at the film.

In this brand new featurette, the director and main cast share a few tidbits about the highly anticipated film. While the cast is being interviewed, some never before seen footage from the film is shown. I just have two words to say. AHHHHH and MAAAZIIIIIIIIIG. From the looks of it, the studio didn’t spare any expense and loaded the film with thrilling and eye-popping action sequences. A fitting way to finish the series, if you ask me. Check out the exciting footage below.

Can You Out Dance Kylie?

In: Donovan, Random Reads, Totally GAY!

When I first saw this, I immediately knew I had to write about it. It totally reminded me of one of my good friends from Seattle. He knows who he is, and for the sake of his anonymity let’s call him Stan (LOL). At New Years, I had a few Seattle friends come visit and stay at Hotel Bridon (Brian & my place). Prior to going out each night, we’d all play a few rounds of Kinect Dance Central for Xbox 360 while getting our predrink/prefunk on. Just like singing, our dancing became more fluid as we became more intoxicated. Anyway. The Seattle boys instantly got hooked on the game and a few of them bought the game when they returned home.

I should probably mention that when we first played, my Seattle friend “Stan” was probably the most enthusiastic about the game, but sadly was the most stiff. I ain’t throwing shade, I said it to his face and he knows how I feel. Anyway, a few weeks later when I visited Seattle, his skills madly improved and I complimented his newly developed dance moves. I’ll give credit where credit is due, which brings me to this video.

Which Wonder Woman Costume Is Hotter?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Newly minted Wonder Woman Adrianne Palicki made her debut as the iconic super heroine yesterday. In a Warner Bros. photo release, Palicki modeled the re-imagined costume for the crime-fighting DC Comics character. When I first heard David E. Kelly (Ally McBeal, The Practice) was taking a more serious and less campy route than the 70s classic, I was a little worried. C’mon, it’s Wonder Woman. She pirouettes into her costume, flies around in an invisible plane and has a truth-inducing golden lasso. There’s absolutely nothing serious about that.

In Kelly’s version, “Wonder Woman is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life,”. LOL. By day, Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince works at Themyscira Industries where Cary Elwes (The Princes Bride) plays her boss. Elizabeth Hurley is also part of the reboot. Her character runs a pharmaceutical company that manufactures drugs to make people stronger. Yeah, this totally sounds more “serious”.

Sports Stud: Alexandre Despatie

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

This sexy 25 (almost 26) year old French diver from Laval, Quebec is this week’s Sports Stud. His name is Alexandre Despatie. He’s been the world champion at the 1m and 3m springboards from 2005 to 2007, and is the first ever (and so far only) World Champion in the 1, 3, and 10m platform categories. That’s pretty amazing! Go Canada! Speaking of which, he’s also the 36x senior diving champion. You know, no big deal. LOL.

His story began when he began diving at 5 years old, and caught the attention of the world at 13 years old when he won a gold medal on the 10m platform at the Commonwealth Games in 1998, getting into the Guinness Book Of World Records in 2000 as a result.

Fast forward through several medals and accomplishments, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he got the silver medal in the 3m springboard and in 2010 he won 3 gold medals for Canada at the Commonwealth Games. This sexy diver is definitely a frontrunner for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London for Canada. You may recognize him for some of the broadcast coverage he did during the 2010 Winter Olympics while taking a little break from training. Can’t wait to cheer for him next year!

Renee Zellweger & Bradley Cooper Breakup

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

After dating for over two years, Renee Zellweger (41) & Bradley Cooper (36) have allegedly called it quits, according to People Magazine. Neither of their reps have commented on the split.

This seem peachy up until February, when they both were at a Pre-Oscar party but weren’t by each others sides. The rumors started circulating. In 2010, Cooper gushed about Zellweger while promoting their film (“Case 39″ – shown in the picture above): “I can’t say enough about her. I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her.” In addition, Zellweger skipped out on the Golden Globes in January to be with Cooper, as his father had just passed away.

In anticipation of I Love You Phillip Morris’ DVD release date on April 5th, we’re holding a contest to give away DVDs to three lucky winners before it hits store shelves. The film stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in the shockingly true story of one of the most brilliant and unsung con artists of all time – Steven Russell – who, after pulling off some of the most jaw-dropping scams, ends up in prison where he meets the love of his life Phillip.  The film was released theatrically to critical acclaim and Carrey’s dynamic performance as Russell has been lauded to be the best of his career.

Since Jim Carrey’s character met the love of his life in prison, we thought we’d use that theme for our contest. Describe the strangest situation you met a significant other and it could score you a free DVD. We’ll be giving one copy of the movie to the strangest entry. In addition, we didn’t want anyone who met their loved ones via conventional means to be left out, so we’ll be giving away the other copies to two winners picked randomly. That’s a total of 3 DVDs. Enter today and see if you have any leftover Irish luck from St. Patty’s Day.
