The cast and creators of Friends have long maintained that a reunion will never happen. Never say never as the saying goes. Slowly we’re inching ever so close to that Friends reunion.
We’ve seen a combination of pairings of the former Friends on various shows. Courteney Cox appeared on Matthew Perry’s now-canceled Go On. Both Jennifer Aniston and Cox appeared together on Cougar Town and Dirt. Lisa Kudrow reunited with Matt Leblanc on Web Therapy and also popped up on Cougar Town. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the first time we’ve had three of them appear together since the NBC show went off the air.
Aniston called Cox and Perry to help promote her co-hosting stint on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. In the promo clip, Aniston arrives at Perry’s house for advice since he’s co-hosted with Ellen previously. She mistakenly calls him David [Schwimmer] and jokes about his canceled show Go On. Soon after Cox pops up and also has problems remembering names. She refers to Jen as Lisa [Kudrow]. Check out the video below which also features DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi making brief cameos.
It’s purely speculative at this moment, but how friggin’ awesome would it be if this actually came to fruition. According to Vulture.com, American Idol execs are contemplating replacing at least one, if not all the judges, with former contestants. The site claims that both Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson have been approached while Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert are also rumored to be in the running.
In my dream world, a Clarkson-Hudson-Lambert trifecta would be EVERYTHING. Not only do they all have successful post-Idol careers but each would bring something different to the table. Kelly would be the nurturing down-to-earth motherly one, while Jennifer would be Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj combined- divalicious and sassy. Need I say what Adam would bring- glamor and pure gayness. In addition, each had a different journey on the show. We have a winner, runner-up and someone who was eliminated way before their time.
FOX needs to make this happen. This could be the direction needed to save the show. Clearly high-priced talent hasn’t done the trick. The show’s massive ratings decline this season resulted in FOX losing the 2012-2013 TV season in the coveted 18-49 demo to CBS for the first time in eight years.
It’s fascinating how a simple video concept can be the most mesmerizing sometimes. At face value, there’s not much to Maroon 5′s latest music video “Love Somebody.” It features Adam Levine getting hot and heavy with model Emily Ratajkowski. The two slowly unveil their painted bodies by touching and caressing each other. Hopefully, Levine’s real life Victoria’s Secret girlfriend doesn’t get too jealous. Things get rather steamy. The track is the fourth official single lifted from the band’s multi-platinum selling album, Overexposed.
Once again, director Rich Lee delivers another visually captivating piece. If you’re not familiar with his work, a few of my favorites include videos for Nicole Scherzinger (“Don’t Hold Your Breath”), The Black Eyed Peas (“The Time (Dirty Bit)”), Michael Buble (“Haven’t Met You Yet”) and Fergie (“Clumsy”) to name a few. Check out his latest creation below.
Just a day after FOX made the official announcement, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio joined Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell at the judges table. The two fresh
women arrived on their first day of their new gig on time. I couldn’t say the same for Cowell.
Three beautiful ladies and Simon is the one who’s taking the longest to get ready. In actuality, the Brit judge kept the three ladies waiting due to traffic problems as a result of flooding caused by heavy rains in the area. The FOX reality show began its first day of filming Season 3 in Charleston, South Carolina on Tuesday May 21.
As the ladies waited for their boss, Kelly joked, “Ooooh, I’ll be Simon,” as she plopped herself in his seat. When Cowell finally arrived, he asked the audience, “Is it a coincidence that when I arrive, everything gets better?” That cocky Brit ;)
Speaking of seating assignments, I was a little surprised that Rowland received the coveted spot by Cowell. Given his chemistry with Lovato, I thought she’d remain in her slot. Perhaps, during the audition process the show will play around with the seating arrangement to determine the best fit. Check out more photos from the first day of filming below.
How’s that for a bold statement? Carmen Electra isn’t playing around with her “girl power party anthem.” The 41-year-old former Baywatch actress returned to music after a 20-year hiatus with “I Like It Loud” released last year. The uber-catchy dance track hit the #25 spot on Billboard’s Dance Club Play Chart. Hoping to continue her musical comeback, Electra is releasing a provocatively-titled second single “Bigger D**k” or the more radio-friendly named “Bigger Stick.” Here’s what Electra has to say about the single’s message.
“Lets face it, it’s been a ‘mans world’ for a long time now, but not anymore. Women are coming up and taking over, and ‘Bigger D*ck’ speaks that in a fun, cheeky way. It’s a metaphor, obviously. All in fun, not to be taken too seriously.” – Carmen Electra
Personally, I like “I Like It Loud” better but “Bigger D**k” is a sassy single in its own right. It reminds me of an updated version of Gillette’s 1994 single, “Short Dick Man.” Anyone old enough here to remember that track? If not, I’ve embedded it along with Carmen Electra’s new single below.
In all honesty, I have no idea if Josh Duhamel even traveled to Russia for the photo shoot. All I do know is that the 40-year-old actor looks smoking in his editorial for the Russian version of InStyle magazine. And that’s all that matters to me.
Photographer Yu Tsai snaps Duhamel in a variety of looks, ranging from casual to formal attire. Whether on the beach, lounging in a hammock or riding a really tiny motorbike (I’d ride bitch), Joshie works every piece to its last thread. Check out his entire spread for the publication below. PS. If we have any Russian-speaking readers on the site, I’d love a translation of the cover. Please and thank you.
Bringing in over 35,000 people a year to view the best of the years’ LGBT films, Toronto’s Inside Out Film Festival is here and begins in just two shorts days. So why attend this year? I have a lot of reasons and there is a lot of great films out this year.
Let’s start with a couple of fantastic parties. Firstly, the opening Gala is this Thursday at a brand new venue, 2nd Floor, where we can expect some great DJ’s and a great dance party to start off this great week. Secondly, Wrong Bar is hosting Peaches After Party where the lady herself will be DJing after the screening of her film. Thirdly, NEXT Thursday, Buddies is hosting a Cineoke party where you can come sing your heart out, and being an avid karaoke(r?), I plan on busting a few tunes. With parties and receptions in between, this all leads up to the closing Gala at Hotel Ocho Sunday June 2nd. Now, enough about the celebrations, let’s get to some films. Here’s three films I’m looking forward to:
Since I recapped the premiere of Dancing With The Stars Season 16, I thought I’d bookend the season by quickly discussing the finale. Another reason I wanted to write this post was to publicly pat myself on the back for doing a pretty good job with my pre-season predictions.
With exception to Dorothy Hamill (how was I supposed to know she’d injure herself week two?), I correctly guessed the first five eliminations. In addition, two of Season 16′s finalists were in my predicted Final 3. My track record with DWTS was a million times better than American Idol this season and I don’t even recap the dancing competition. Enough stroking my ego, let’s get to the results.
