Gunman at Discovery Channel!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Holy crap! This is a scary situation! There is a gunman in the lobby of Discovery Channel HQ in Silver Spring, Md. The guy is a former employee, Asian, and apparently has already fired his weapon in the building. No one has been reported to be injured, but the suspect appears to be wearing an explosive device of some sort strapped to his chest as well and holding someone hostage.

Hopefully the authorities are able to change the channel on this situation before anyone gets hurt and the guy makes a bigger mistake than he already has.

UPDATE: Police have shot the gunman, believed to be James J. Lee, and all the hostages are safe. He apparently was criticizing the network in his efforts to save the planet and back in in ’08 made had following statement on a website registered in his name:

“These guys have been very sneaky and deceptive as to their contribution to the planetary problems. Just look at their ‘new’ show about saving the planet, Planet Green, to me, it’s just another show about more PRODUCTS to make MONEY, not about actual solutions. We can’t let them get away with doing it anymore.”

Violence is never the answer.

Teenage Dream Come True

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Looks like Katy Perry‘s Teenage Dream has come true, as her album has soared to number one on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. Funny enough, this is the first album by a female artist to make it to number one since Ke$ha reigned the charts back in January. Why is that funny? Because I feel that Ke$ha and Katy Perry are the two artists that have received the most hate on our site by writers and readers alike, yet the charts show that most people are buying their albums when they reach number one.

Katy Perry beats her own record of previously peaking at #8 on the charts with her 2008 debut album, “One Of The Boys,” which featured the hit, “I Kissed A Girl”. In her opening week, she’s sold 192,000 copies of her album (Have you seen them in STARBUCKS!? – I’m sure that helped!) Fantasia is at number two with “Back To Me” and Eminem has moved down to number three with “Recovery“.

I’m still crossing my fingers that Peacock is released as one of her singles from the album and that she makes a video for it as well – or better yet, uses this one.

The Amazing Race 17: Meet The Teams

In: Patrick, TV Shows

As the summer comes to an end, it’s that time again for a trip around the world and a new season of The Amazing Race – the 17th Season to be exact – almost as many as Survivor! We begin with 11 teams and the last team to arrive to each of the destinations after a series of challenges may be eliminated.

We have a mixture of couples, mother/daughter, father/daughter, best friends, and a few other random relationships comprise the assortment of the competing pairs this season.

The Emmy Award winning show premieres this new season September 26th, 2010 and it’ll air every Sunday at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT.

Shall we meet the teams?

Katie Seamon (left) & Rachel Johnston

Relationship: Volleyball Partners
About: Katie (23) and Rachel (24) play volleyball together and…look like sisters to me. They both are obviously fit, but talk too much and can get flustered easily. This could be their downfall, but if they keep they cool, perhaps they’ll be able to bump, set, spike their way to the end!

Meet the rest of the teams after the jump…

Jazmine Sullivan: “Holding You Down” Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

If you’re not a fan of Jazmine Sullivan yet, what are you waiting for? She’s arguably one of the most underrated R&B singers in music today. I’m still reeling that Sullivan was robbed at at 2009′sGrammy Awards. Her single “Bust Your Windows” was (and still is) on heavy rotation on my iTunes library. I wasn’t the only fan of this song. Mercedes (Amber Riley) did a kick ass version of the track for an episode of “Glee“. This chick is amazing, and I adore her to death, and so should you.

Jazmine’s new urban jam has the potential to crossover and become a huge hit. It’s already climbing up the Billboard charts. “Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles)” is the lead single from her upcoming sophomore album, “Love Me Back“. It samples Nas’ “Affirmative Action”, which sampled “Hard to Handle” by Etta James. Not ringing a bell? Listen to the track, and the beat will sound familiar for sure.

As part of MTV’s “GYT: Get Yourself Tested” campaign, the network is teaming up with one of the fastest growing social networking applications out there, foursquare. For those who don’t know foursquare is, it’s a web and phone app where you tell your friends where you are and been by “checking in“. If you check in at a particular location enough times, you become the mayor of the establishment. Some businesses even have specials if you’re the mayor of their location.

foursquare also allows users to receive scout-inspired merit badges for a range of check-in accomplishments. These include “Jobs” for visiting three Apple stores, “Gym Rat” for hitting the gym 10 times in a month, “Jetsetter” for being at 5 different airports and “Crunked” for checking in 4 or more times in a single night, to name a few. I’m not the super diligent at checking in and the number of badges I earned illustrates this. I only have a measly 11.

Back in March, we gave you a preview on the rumored cast for Bravo’s next installment of its successful “The Real Housewives of…” franchise. In anticipation of its October 14, 2010 premiere, the network released the first official photos of the “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast and accompanying trailer.

While the DC spin-off has been of a let down so far (though I have a feeling it’ll pick up in next few weeks), I have a hunch these ladies from the infamous zip code will make for great television. First, these hookers are loaded and when there’s that much money involved, you know there is lots of drama. Like The Notorious B.I.G. said, “Mo Money, Mo Problems“. Seriously, these ladies live in humongous mansions. It’s like senior citizen “90210” meets “Dynasty” for the new millenium with a reality TV spin.

Commence Dragulation: Mommy Dear… Fiercest!

In: Alex, TV Shows

Sorry for the delay in posting about this week’s Drag U, but I’m a busy business woman so let’s jump right into it.

Door!

This week’s episode was all about stressed out mothers and their need to get their sexy back.  We first met Janet (paired with Shannel), a 44 year old full-time mom  who, after the death of her sister gave up her singing career on the verge of releasing her first album.  Then we met April (paired with Pandora Boxx), a 40 year old mother of 5 who was uber stressed out and didn’t leave any time for herself.  And finally we met Angela (with Morgan McMichaels), another 44 year old with 5 chilens runnin’ around who had given up on herself to take care of her husband that is on dialysis.  You could tell all three women really did love their families, but just needed some time for themselves.  Enter the Dragulator.

Janet’s Dragulation was Dee Dee Tee, a rocker chick with an awesome mohawk that my best friend Scott would die for. April was given the name Sarah Tonin with kind of a 50s housewife/Stepford wives outfit.  She didn’t love it (and neither did I) and said that she was in the kitchen enough during her everyday life so why would she dress up in an apron as her drag ego.  Made sense.  Next up we saw Angela’s alter ego Damita Jo Mama.  The name – amazing.  I was hoping for a little bit more of a diva outfit, but the name kind of made up for it.

SYTYCDC Season 3: Top 20 Eliminations

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Here we are. Another Tuesday and another couple is going home. We begin the show with a Bollywood routine choreographed by the choreographer of Slumdog Millionaire. I loved the colors of the routine and the use of the stage however, the routine as a whole felt juvenile to me and lacked difficulty. I did enjoy this routine more than last weeks though and I’m sure the nation will agree with me.

Leah joins the dancers on stage and thanks the choreographer and we get ready to discover this week’s bottom couples. We start off with the first 5 couples: Jeff and Charlene, Mackenzie and Nathalie, Claudia and Yonni, Jonathan and Kloe and Jessi and Julia. Leah introduces the recaps of last night’s performances. Jeff and Charlene are safe as well as Tommy D‘s favorite Mackenzie and his partner Nathalie. Claudia and Yonni are the first couple in the bottom 3 and Julia and Jesse find themselves safe. The remaining five couples join Leah on the stage and we begin the second recap of last night’s performances. The couples include Jera and Kirsten, Sebastian and Danielle, Denys and Amanda, Bree and Edgar and Shavar and Janick. Jera and Kirsten find themselves the second couple in the bottom. Sebastian and Danielle are safe as well as Denys and Amanda. Which couple remaining would join the bottom three. With the shock of the evening, the krumpers Shavar and Janick stay safe and unfortunately for Bree and Edgar, not enough of Jamaica’s population voted for their Dance Hall performance.
