We always knew we liked Al Roker. That charming smile, that warm laugh, that total lack of filter. We also knew we were leery of gastric bypass surgery. Turns out, we were right on all accounts, as evidenced by the fact that…um…Al Roker accidentally pooped his pants at the White House. While that’s certainly better than intentionally pooping your pants at the White House, it’s both amazing and shocking to hear the Today Show weatherman admit to going Code Brown with the President of the United States in the next room. Apparently it all started after Al allegedly ate something outside of the dietary restrictions set following his surgery. “And as I’m walking to the press room, I think I gotta pass a little gas here. So, I’m walking by myself, who’s gonna know, only, a little something extra came out,” Al admits to Dateline‘s Dr. Nancy Snyderman. “I pooped in my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew.” Not. Horribly. Not horribly, but enough that everyone in the free world would one day know.
When we included Ryan Lochte on our 10 Things We’d Like to Leave Behind In 2012, we were only referring to medal-winning, Speedo-filling, grill-sporting, 30 Rock-cameoing Ryan Lochte. We enjoyed that Ryan Lochte immensely! We just felt like we’d had enough of him. The part of us that selected him as #12 on our 12 Celebs Who Dominated 2012 list must have known something wonderful was a-brewin’. That something is an E! reality show entitled What Would Ryan Lochte Do? You know, like those bracelets that ask What Would Jesus Do? So, so great. We really underestimated this guy. Plus we’re finally going to find out exactly how many pools Ryan has peed in!
“How deep is the pool of Ryan Lochte? It turns out, very deep.” E! wisely asked today while announcing the new six-episode series. The show will follow Lochte in and out of the water as he trains for the 2016 Rio Olympics, as well as manages his fashion line, interacts with his friends and family and (be still our hearts!) spends his spare moments “looking for the right girl.” This man’s life could not be more perfectly-suited for a reality show. Plus you know there’s a cavernous warehouse already filled with Jeah! t-shirts somewhere. E! just saved themselves some money right there.
The dreaded Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag have been back in the spot light for about six seconds, and they’re already up to their pathetic attention-getting attempts that are about to make us burst a blood-vessel with rage. Trust us, we’d rather not be writing about them, but it’s a slow news day and we have a quota to fill. Their return to reality TV with Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother prompted us to do a retrospective of the pair’s low-lights last week, and now Spencer is clearly pretending that someone “stole” his phone is threatening to leak “intimate” photos of Heidi. But from what we’ve seen, it’s stuff like her doing laundry and drying her nails. Not really the kind of intimate that most people have in mind.
Spencer was supposed to have his phone taken away as he entered the BB compound, but he was seen on live feeds of the show using the device. “Listen, tweeps, keep calm and carry on. This is perfectly explainable. I have been allowed to tweet as a plot device in the season,” he (or somebody…) posted to his feed soon after. And that’s when all of the mysterious “thievery” and “leaks” and other things in quotations started to occur. “Just a taste of what’s on my phone,” reads the caption on a photo of a perfectly safe-for-work shot of Heidi wish a fresh manicure. “Surely, the tabloids would have a field day with the contents of my phone, their cup o’ tea…. Thanks for the concern. No hacking here. Actually it’s good I found my phone. Contacts, pictures, all sorts of things some1 might want.”
We all remember what happened to Ryan Gosling‘s character at the end of Drive, don’t we? (He drives up to Heaven, right? Did we interpret that last shot wrong?) The Place Beyond The Pines trailer seems to have the potential for even more violence than that, what with all the bank robbing and the motorcycle death cage and such. Even Blue Valentine left Gosling’s character basically destroyed, albeit in an emotional sense. We were hoping to get a Crazy. Stupid. Love. to break up the brutality of Ryan’s career trajectory, but instead we got the teaser trailer for Only God Forgives, Gosling’s new Thai kickboxing movie. Oh yeah, he’s gonna get punched in the eye for sure.
As short as the teaser is, we only need to see 20 seconds of director Nicolas Winding Refn‘s new thriller to know it is as gritty and teeth-shattering as all of Gosling’s recent films. Did we mention the upcoming movie stars Ryan as a “gym owner who has to take out his brother’s murderer — or perish himself.” Yeah, we wouldn’t blame Ryan if his next film was, say, Smurfs 3: This Time It’s Smurf-onal. Just to give his fists a break.
Shame on us forgetting the piercing blue eyes and adorable smile of Kyle XY star Matt Dallas. Happy 2013 to us. Oh, and to Dallas too. Apparently he rang in the new year by both publicly announcing his engagement and the fact his beloved is a man in one convenient tweet! “Starting off the year with a new fiance, @bluehamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!” the actor gushed along with a photo of his musician boyfriend. On top of that, Matt’s tweet also introduced the world to the cutest dog alive and his little monkey friend. What can’t 140 characters do?
If we may be blunt, we’re pretty sure that many men have wondered what it’s like to be in bed with Heidi Klum. And in her new interview with Marie Claire, she gives us an answer: Terrifying! OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. The former Victoria’s Secret angel and current super hottie opened up about her private night time activities to the magazine, and admitted to being a bit on the wild side.
“It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes – to do things outside of the norm,” she says. Wait wait wait, did Heidi Klum just admit to being a fan of furry costumes? That’s how we choose to read that. “Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring,” she goes on. Please Heidi, we prefer the term ‘bland.’ “If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while.”
Whoa now, Heidi! Sure it’s a little racy, but it’s nowhere near as bad as some of these celebrity bedroom over-shares. Prepare yourself for some real pearl-grabbers and head on down to the gallery below!
Our friends at NickMom know a thing or two about throwing kids’ birthday parties — and not in an annoying Martha Stewart-y kind of way — so we think this depiction of what’s probably going down at Blue Ivy Carter’s first birthday party has to be on the money. Check out the rest of it here.
You know we’ve been obsessed with Amber Rose’s adorable baby bump photos for months, but the pics she posted this weekend from her baby shower blew the rest away. Not only is she still incredibly cute for someone in her eighth month of pregnancy, but she is rocking a dress that we immediately want. It’s part of designer Jeremy Scott’s Adidas Originals collection, shown above on the runway. The most remarkable thing is how much better it looks on preggo Amber than on the skinny model.
Also great is this pic of Amber and Wiz Khalifa opening presents together. Read more…

2013 is only a week old, but Christina Milian is already making a stab at earning the “Hottest Twitpic of The Year” honor! The multi-talented star shared her new years resolution to get in shape along side by super sizzlin’ swimsuit photo. “This will be my body by spring! You ready?!” she captioned the apparently vintage snap, posted in honor of Throw Back Thursday. But time definitely diminish its hotness, that’s for sure! “I’m determined to have this body back,” she assured her followers. Although we have to say, we’ve seen some recent bikini photos of Christina lately, and she still looks pretty much just like that. Head on down to the gallery of her photos two-piece photos below and you’ll see what we mean! Maybe her new years resolution should be to easy up on herself a little bit, huh? Can someone get her Jennifer Lawrence’s number? Maybe they can coach each other through it.
