Over the last few months, the Old Spice Guy has become the most popular commercial pitchperson since the “Where’s The Beef?” lady. That’s why we’re so excited that he decided to reply to our inquiry about whether or not he does community service wearing just a towel in video form. So, the question remains: Will he actually be attending the 2010 VH1 Do Something Awards next week? You’ll have to tune in on Monday, July 19 at 9/8c to find out!

I woke up on Saturday morning with a raging hangover and twelve American dollars burning a hole in my pocket. I took care of my hangover the way I always do –hair of the dog! — but struggled for a few minutes figuring out what I could do with those twelve American dollars. After a few minutes of researching what I could procure for my moneys, you know what I spent it on? One adult ticket to go see Predators! Seeing as how I’m a sucker for both creature movies and nostalgia, I figured it would be a good way to kill a few hours (and save some money on my electrical bill for the air-conditioning I would’ve used). So I made my way over to the local multiplex, plunked down my cash and spent the next 90 minutes with my good buddies Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Laurence Fishburne, and, of course, the Predators.
However, when I left the multiplex a few hours later, I couldn’t help but feel like I didn’t quite get my money’s worth. Not just because I spent an additional five American dollars and fifty American cents on a 72 oz fountain drink, mind you, but because I felt like the film’s marketing campaign led me, the consumer, more than a little astray. If you’re interested in my tale, I encourage you to follow along. However, please note, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS.
Sources tell Best Week Ever exclusively that LeBron James, the King of Vitamin Water, met up with Lindsay Lohan, the Queen of Coke, mere moments before his ESPN special last night. We’re told that the two had a secret heart-to-heart outside of the Boys & Girls Club in Greenwich, CT, a meeting during which Lohan counseled James on how the notorious nailbiter could best visually express his inner feelings during such an emotionally intense moment. Thanks to the keen eye of our own Lauren Deiman, we can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that King James delivered a not-so-subtle message to the city of Cleveland via his fingernails last night. Stay classy, LeBron!
Over the last few weeks, Steve Carell has been running around telling everyone who’ll listen that next year will be his last on The Office. At this time, it remains unclear whether or not Carell actually means it or if his very public comments have simply been a negotiating ploy to force NBC into handing him a giant, Charlie Sheen sized paycheck. Either way, the Peacock Network has no plans to shutter Dunder-Mifflin’s Scranton branch. So if Michael Scott departs for greener pastures, who will take over as the big bossman? Well, if producer/writer/star Mindy Kaling has her way, it will be Dwight! As she tells Michael “Raisin Bran” Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly:
“I’d love to see Rainn Wilson in that position. Dwight has become so nuanced — you actually care about him now. I think if [we did a good job laying the groundwork] this coming season, he would be a fantastic boss. But that’s my dream, it certainly hasn’t been approved by people that are more powerful than me and who make those kinds of decisions.”
For those of you out there who love shaking your booty while simultaneously keeping up with the latest Internet memes, this has been quite the year for Internet Dance Crazes. In the first six months of the year alone, Major Lazer taught us how to dagger, hundreds of Surra de Bunda videos began popping up on YouTube, and a gang of rambunctious, well-endowed teens invented the Dick Slang. Now, thanks to the benevolent Internet gods, we can all start learning “The Rick”! Granted, it’s not a dance you’ll necessarily want to bust out at the next wedding reception you frequent, but depending on your crew of friends (and your level of drunkenness), it might just go over like gangbusters at the afterparty.

Impossible to say! But when we spoke to disgraced Real Housewives of New Jersey (and recent sex tape) star Danielle Staub at The Sorcerer’s Apprentice red carpet on Tuesday night, that’s exactly what she claimed. “Jillian has a song coming out that actually has Justin Bieber in it,” she told us, before adding that “It’s produced and also written by Lori Michaels and it’s called ‘Whatchu Talkin’ About’.”
Hmmmm. We’re not accusing Staub of lying, exactly, but we do have our doubts that this will actually come to fruition. First of all, why would a huge megastar like Justin Bieber collaborate with a virtual no-name like Jillian Staub? This isn’t like the time when a (washed-up and possibly drugged out) Dallas Austin agreed to sit in a studio with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak while she awkwardly warbled a few notes in exchange for a huge payday. Second, her claim’s plausability is slightly undermined by the rumors that Staub (the mom, not the daughter) is involved in a same-sex relationship with the songwriter in question.
Speaking of which, VH1 News also asked Staub about her burgeoning relationship with Michaels. See what she told us below.
That Sarah Palin is a wily one, isn’t she? Today, she released a video to YouTube that all but explicitly states her interest in running for president in 2012. In it, she talks about her distaste for the “fundamental transformation” that she thinks our country is going through, how being a “mom” gives her a deeper window of insight into this country’s problems than any man could possibly have, and how the time is approaching for “common sense conservative women to get things done for our country.” All good rallying points, we suppose, but being that she’s Sarah Palin, she couldn’t resist the opportunity to mix a few animal metaphors into her carefully crafted, one-minute and fifty-second long video. What else did you expect from someone who introduced the concept of lipstick-wearing pitbulls into our lexicon?
Something pretty amazing happened on television on Monday night. It wasn’t something that rattled the Celebrity Industrial Complex to its core, nor did it really move the ratings needle for the network that aired it. However, that doesn’t lessen the quote-unquote “importance” of Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi‘s very ugly and very compelling televised breakup (the highlights of which can be seen in our short clip above). My interest in the matter isn’t because I cared about them as a couple, or even as people, really; rather, the fascination lies in the bold way that Vienna rebelled against the two-headed publicity machine of ABC and People magazine, along the way creating one of the most real moments that’s ever happened on a reality television dating show.
rnrnAfter negotiations between Sony Pictures and Spider-Man director Sam Raimi broke down in January, the studio decided to shutter the whole Raimi/Tobey Maguire/Kirsten Dunst triumvirate and start fresh. They hired the promising yet largely unproven 500 Days of Summer director Marc Webb to helm the reboot of the most popular superhero franchise of the last decade and, just yesterday, finally landed on their lead.
