Parks and Recreation‘s Donna aka the terribly funny Retta is probably Twitter’s funniest live-tweeter. Each week the actress blesses fans with shocked reactions, quick wit and unforettable commentary. When VH1′s Kate Spencer bumped into her on the red carpet of the PaleyFest 2014, the ultimate TV fan festival, she tested Retta’s Twitter knowledge of the show and had her provide one-word and one-tweet reviews. She offers up thoughts on Orange is the New Black, Scandal and The Walking Dead. And let’s be real, hearing Retta review each show is just like watching her live feed on Twitter. She’s exactly the person you want to watch TV with because she knows exactly how you feel.

Justin Bieber isn’t your normal child star. The singer turn mega star lives in a world all of his own. VH1 goes inside the fabulous life of the singer which includes leopard-painted cars, pet monkeys, and more shoes than Carrie Bradshaw. Oh what a life! Thanks to his recent tour, he has nearly $150 million to spend on just about everything he could need. Well, everything outside of staying out of legal trouble. (But that’s another story!)
Ahead of the release of The Single Moms Club, a film written, directed, produced by and starring Tyler Perry, we thought it was worthwhile looking back on all the Tyler Perry Productions (TPP) that came before it. In total, Perry has produced 16 films (including SMC) from the ongoing Madea franchise to stand-alones, such as Temptation and Why Did I Get Married? All of the films have been met with varying degrees of praise and success. But who has actually sat down and watched all of them? Inspired by that question, I decided to review all of Perry’s film in order to grade and rank each film.
To see how they fall in order (from worst to best), flip through the gallery above. For a more in-depth, critical analysis keep on reading!
Just how fabulous is the life of Nicki Minaj? In short: Pretty fab! The rapper is the subject of this week’s episode of The Fabulous Life Of... and the show digs deep into her lavish lifestyle. For instance, did you know she drops upwards of $16,000 on a dress? And that’s just to walk to red carpet. Then there are the shoes, which cost nearly $3,500 a pair. What?! That’s more than last month’s rent! Don’t even get us started on the cars, the trips and her obsession with fried chicken.
By now, everyone knows Lena Headey for her two onscreen personas: Queen Gorgo of the 300 franchise and Cersei Lannister of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Both are tough female characters that has Headey swinging swords, lashing tongues, and tempting men but ultimately one is the badder bitch.
On one hand you have Cersei Lannister. Headey’s character on HBO’s Game of Thrones is the former queen of King’s Landing. She’s ruthless, ill-tempered, full of pride and lives on a diet of wine and bitter contempt for those less fortunate than her. Then there’s Gorgo from 300. The queen of Sparta, now a widow, is a fierce leader with little regard for the city-states in Greece. Her main focus is maintaining the spirit of her former king and husband, Xerxes.
Ahead of the premiere of 300: Rise of an Empire, we ask Headey to pick who is tougher, sexier and would win in a fight.
Ahead of the premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-reality series, we wanted to take a closer look at her career (and personal) recovery. While most view the time around the release of I Know Who Killed Me as her big breakdown moment, troubles for the actress started shortly after the success of Mean Girls. Lohan was under a microscope. After collapsing during the making of Herbie: Fully Loaded and getting into a string of car accidents, her her star started to diminish. Suddenly everyone was wondering if she was worth the effort or even all the unwanted attention. Since then, Lohan has been struggling to bounce back and erase any memory of the past decade with a series of comeback attempts.
After getting engaged last October, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally set a wedding date. Kardashian will walk down the aisle on May 24, just weeks before Baby North’s first birthday. Of course, new details are already pouring in about the upcoming nuptials. Here’s what we know:
When you live the life of the rich and fabulous, money hardly means a thing. Just ask Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who we affectionately know as Kimye. The two are among entertainment’s most powerful couples. Their combined wealth lets them bounce around the world, spend thousands at dinner and drop millions on an engagement ring. In the premiere episode of the return of The Fabulous Life Of…, the show breaks down just how lavish life with Yeezus is.
The battle between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair continues to heat up. While The Gossip Table reported that the actress skipped the magazine’s annual post-Oscars bash, she wasn’t the only to opt out of the event. Paltrow’s publicist pulled his long-reaching strings and convinced Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock to pass on the event. That’s right, GOOP’s got power.
Every year, there are always one or two Oscars snubs (and upsets) that really hurt. In years past, it was Argo‘s Ben Affleck not getting nominated for Best Director, Sidney Poitier for In the Heat of the Night, or Jimmy Stewart’s emotional turn in Vertigo. This year, it was Oprah Winfrey‘s riveting performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Say what you will about the film, but there was no discounting Winfrey’s turn as Gloria Gaines. She carried the film but, sadly, could not do enough to earn the movie a single nomination at this year’s Academy Awards.
But that’s where we come in. With Oprah out for The Butler, we decided to recast her in several of this year’s Oscar-nominated films. Damn the Academy! If they don’t want to recognize her for that role, then we’ll put in everything and see if they can get away with it. Because let’s face it: Every movie is made better with Oprah in it.
