Did I Do That? From Sitcom Kids To Grown-Up Stars

Why can’t the world let Jaleel White be great? The man formerly known as Urkel complained to People today that he feels limited by his sitcom past. “I’m very versatile, but somehow I didn’t earn the tag of being called a versatile actor,” the former Family Matters star says. “I’m still chasing that one Vanity Fair tag that says, ‘This guy’s a versatile actor.’ I accept it. It’s fine. But for me, it’s like what do I have to do to get that [acknowledgment]?”

Luckily for White, those different and exciting roles could still be just around the corner! Your career doesn’t have to end when those highwaters get too tight to wear! Check out our gallery of sitcom kids, from Leo DiCaprio to Raven-Symone to Sarah Jessica Parker, who successfully made the transition from adorable youngsters to adult film and television stars. And hey…don’t lose the faith, Jaleel.

Boardwalk Empire Recap: Diff’rent Strokes

On a show with so many boobs and so many murders, it was really only a matter of time before someone got murdered by boobs.

It’s Boardwalk Empire Season 2, Episode 4 entitled “What Does The Bee Do?” And if by “Bee” we mean Gretchen Mol’s “bee-oobs,” then the answer to that question is “they cause The Commodore to have a stroke.”

Waaaaaittttt aaaaaaaa minnuuuuttttteee… A high-ranking but generally mean-spirited antagonist suffered a crippling stroke in the middle of sexual passion? That seems awfully familiar…

So just how powerful is Naked Gretchen Mol? Here’s a handy diagram (NSFW):

Joe Manganiello: Hanging Out With Magic Mike Co-Stars Was “Like Spring Break”

Joe Manganiello has the hunk thing down (tall, dark, so very, very handsome), but he’s also really fun to chat with. We caught up with the True Blood actor right after winning Breakout Performance at the Scream Awards, and he filled us in on Magic Mike, his upcoming project with director Steven Soderbergh. Also known as That Stripper Movie Starring Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum. Rawr.

The actor raved about the film — “It’s gonna blow minds” — and his co-stars. “It was like Spring Break,” he said of their time together. “They are the greatest group of guys.” When I asked if the Pec Posse (you like that?) visited any strip clubs while shooting in Tampa, Joe told us, “I didn’t, but a lot of them did.”

He wouldn’t name names, but we have some guesses. Who are yours? Watch the video below the jump.

Mariah Carey’s Babies’ Backs … And Guess The Other Celebrity Offspring!

Aww. We’re going to have to wait until Friday to see Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s babies, Moroccan and Monroe, from the front on ABC’s 20/20. And that’s when we’ll apologize to little Roc and Roe for forgetting about them while we’ve been counting down the days until Babyonce is born. We didn’t mean it!

In the meantime, we’ll distract you with pics of other super-cute celeb offspring. And to see just how much you know about famous kids, we’ll leave their names off until the very end. No peeking!

Kathie Lee Makes Fun Of Jersey Shore Cast In Front Of Jersey Shore Cast

The existence of Jersey Shore is puzzling to many people, only because one would think that the novelty of East Coast “guidos and guidettes” might have worn off by now. But, no, people continue to eat up the finely-produced adventures of Shnooky, Jwho?, Michael Situation, and Deena DeVito as they binge drink, speak English poorly, and do everything in their power to decimate the image of the Italian American.

Consider Kathie Lee Gifford, resident crankypants, who had the gaul — THE GAUL! — to say in front of DeVito and Sammi Sweet Tarts that she can’t tell the cast members apart and that,  basically, who cares about these people and why are they on her show?

The Situation Allegedly Kicked Out Of Apple Store For Cutting In Line

If you’ve been watching this season of Jersey Shore, you know Mr. Mike Sorrentino has accumulated quite a number of enemies on his Hate List. He can go ahead and add the names of Apple’s security team to that lengthy scroll, because Gizmodo reports that allegedly The Situation was kicked out an Apple store. The fact that this is nowhere near the most embarrassing thing Mike will do this week is…chilling.

Despite what you’re thinking, the Situation’s prompt removal was not due to his compulsive need to start bar-wide fight fights nor his tendency to scream, in graphic detail, the nuances of his hook-up with Snooki. No, the reality star was instead trying to butt in line for a new phone. “One of my former Apple compatriots just kicked The Situation out of an Apple store for trying to cut in line for a 4S. HE IS MY HERO,” Laurenn McCubbin tweeted. At least the Situation didn’t respond the way he usually does to a challenge: by smashing his head against the wall. Those Apple stores are almost all glass; the whole thing would have shattered like a dropped Christmas ornament.


Lights, Camera, Naptime: Harry Belafonte Asleep On Live Television

Cut Harry Belafonte a break, you guys. He’s 84 years old, a living legend for his work in film and music and as an activist. And he’s about to be the focus of an HBO biopic and a new autobiography, so when he does interview junkets all day long, he’s bound to get tired and close his eyes for a moment because, you know what? He’s tired! He’s lived for eight decades! Leave him alone! You’d be exhausted, too!

But, man, the control room is probably a mess right now. You just do you, Belafonte! Daylight come and you wanna take a NAP! YOU DESERVE IT!

Crazy how not-alive he looks, right? Who knew Harry Belafonte slept in “coffin” position? #themoreyouknow

Chloe Moretz’s Mom Won’t Let Her Buy Expensive Clothes

Chloe Moretz chatted with us about her style icon status at the Scream Awards this weekend. The teen star was very humble when we informed her that she’s already a fashion favorite on the red carpet. “I’m very eclectic,” she said, when describing her personal style. The actress also doesn’t spend her movie money on Chanel bags and Louboutins. “My mom doesn’t really let me buy anything expensive,” she said with a pretend pout.” This coming from the mouth of the star who, according to, has around $4 million in the bank. Instead, Chloe tells us, she’s a vintage and Urban Outfitters kinda gal. That only makes her cooler in our eyes!

Chloe’s mom, are you reading this? Please bow forward while we place this Best Mom of the Year crown on your head. The entire Moretz clan is in on the awesome family act, because Chloe was escorted on the carpet by her older brother Trevor Moretz. Chloe teased us when we complimented his fashion sense. “Ooooh are you hitting on my brother?!” joked the down-to-earth star.

No. Maybe. Okay, yes. Yes we were. Check out pics below of the fierce fashionista at Saturday’s Scream Awards and Elle’s Women in Hollywood event last night.

Jessica Alba And Her Daughters Search For The Great Pumpkin

New mom Jessica Alba took her daughters to Hollywood’s famous Mr. Bone’s Pumpkin Patch yesterday to stock up on some Halloween spirit. In fact, this is Jessica’s second trip to the patch this week, taking home a whole cart full of pumpkins each time. This lady is clearly into Halloween! Or maybe she’s searching for the epic Great Pumpkin of Charlie Brown lore. The actress got a hand from 3-year old Honor Marie Cash, who looked like she was having a blast out in the field. Newborn Haven Garner Warren was confined to her baby stroller, so she was slightly less help to the pumpkin selection process. But still, we’re sure she had fun too. Check out the not-so-spooky Halloween cuteness in the gallery below!
