Jane Lynch Opens Up About Her Addiction To Cough Syrup

Jane Lynch is pretty damn good at playing at playing tough-as-nails, no-nonsense characters. And it’s no wonder, because she’s fought some pretty hard battles in her life. In addition to alcoholism, the 51-year old actress has recently opened up about an addiction to NyQuil cough syrup. She turned to the medicine, which has similar properties to alcohol, after giving up drinking over twenty years ago. “Though no longer drinking Miller Lite I was in need of something to soothe me,” she writes in her upcoming memoir, Happy Accidents. “The fact that NyQuil had alcohol in it was not something I acknowledged at all. I still considered myself on the wagon.”

She says that her problems escalated during a ten month stint acting in a Broadway play. “I was miserable the whole time,” she continued. “I’d close the drapes, take a swig of NyQuil, toast with a simple ‘bye bye’ and go into a deep sleep.” But the real breaking point came after a night of partying with the cast. “I smoked myself into oblivion that night. I still felt like crap and even lonelier that I had felt before.” She credits the incident with making her go to Alcoholics Anonymous, and she’s been sober ever since. And now that she’s wed her longtime partner Lara Embry, it’s safe to say that she’s indeed gleeful.

Rihanna Rocks Shorter Than Short-Shorts Shorts

She may be bad, but she’s certainly good at it. Rihanna took to the stage at England’s V Festival over the weekend in shorts that redefined short-shorts. The sassy singer is known for her provocative (some would say “risque”) concert attire, so these booty shorts could be seen as downright demure by her sizzling standards. Maybe she was meeting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for tea afterwards. Riri completed the ensemble with an unbuttoned denim shirt knotted at the waist, creating a Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island look. Provided they ever opened a Gilligan’s Island themed strip club. Check out more of the leggy look in the gallery below!

Snooki And Ron-Ron Have Dueling Vegas Pool Parties

We guess the Jersey Shore cast didn’t get an invite to Kim Kardashian‘s wedding, but it looks like they had a pretty awesome weekend anyway! Shore-sters Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Snooki each had their own pool parties in hip Vegas hotels. Maybe they just learned that tans don’t just come in booths and bottles?

Ron-Ron’s poolside shindig was held at the REHAB club in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Upon entering he paid tribute to one of his JS mates by stripping off his shirt and showing off some killer abs that would put The Situation to shame. This certainly ain’t no shy Ronnie! Once he got inside, Ronnie was reportedly chatting it up with numerous bikini’d babes. What’s Sammi Sweetheart gonna say!?

Snooki’s pool bash was help at the WET Republic pool in the MGM Grand hotel. The poofed one rocked a very Hot Topic-y coverup look with red ‘n’ black stripes and a studded belt overtop her animal print bikini. Grrrrr, pickles beware. Snooki seems to be having a blast out west, and is even finding time to create a new dialect. “Vegas killz me lmao,” she tweeted. “N don’t correct my english cuz I say what I want n I make up my own languagez, bitches. :)

Reese Witherspoon Looks Glam With Fam At The Beach

Reese Witherspoon spent the last few days on a Hawaii getaway with her family, and the R and R has done her some serious good from the looks of it. The blonde bombshell was all smiles in a sexy plunging one-piece suit as she hit the beach, and even got a little bit frisky with her new husband Jim Toth as they splashed in the waves. Let’s hope her kids Deacon and Ava weren’t watching…

See more fun in the sun in the gallery below!

How Many Muppets Gave Their Lives To Make Rihanna’s Top?

We were baffled to come in this morning to find pictures of Lady Gaga looking (gasp) shockingly normal (and hot) as she caught some waves in Mexico. But thank god Rihanna stepped up to the bizarro fashion plate and knocked a homer way out of WTF Park. Riri showed up to the London launch of her new scent ‘Reb’l Fleur’ today wearing what appears to be a top made of shaggy Muppet fur. What would (platonic) Muppet lover Jason Segel say!? Are you diggin the (errr…) risky look, or do you think she should throw it in Oscar’s trashcan? Get a closer look in the gallery below!

Josh Groban Gets A Guest Spot On The Office

The producers of The Office are really pulling out all the stops to try and fill the vacuum left by Steve Carell. Guest stars are like CPR for elderly sitcoms, and the end of last season was loaded to the brim with big names, including Will Ferrell, Kathy Bates, Ricky Gervais, Will Arnet, Ray Romano, and more. Plus James Spader has been tapped for a recurring role on the show, but as Dunder Mifflin’s new CEO and not Carrel’s replacement, as previously assumed. And it looks like the parade of guest stars is about to continue with Josh Groban.

The pop-opera crossover heartthrob (and mom favorite) will appear as the brother of Ed Helm‘s character, Andy Bernard. Andy is a passionate a capella singer, so we have our fingers crossed for a hilarious in-office duet! Groban has been flexing his comedy muscles lately, playing  a small but memorable role as Emma Stone’s douchey boyfriend in this summer’s Crazy Stupid Love. The flick starred none other than Steve Carell, so who knows..maybe that’s how Josh got the Office job in the first place. We’re excited by all of these famous faces showing up around Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, but we just hope the show go the Love Boat route and drive the guest stars into the ground.

Kirsten Dunst Wants You To Know That She Has Big Boobs

After a period out of the limelight, Kirsten Dunst is back to the big leagues with her award winning performance in Melancholia. But enough about acting and films and all that stuff. Kirsten recently sat down with Elle magazine and reminded us all that she has big boobs. You know, in case we forgot while she was away. And she also wants you to know that she has no body issues whatsoever, you guys. Zero. Do it up, girl!

Kiki strips down for some nude scenes in Melancholia, but apparently she didn’t stress or obsess over it one bit. “I didn’t work out beforehand, it was all very natural.” In fact, she seems to love her body more than we’ll ever love our first-born. “I don’t have any real body issues. I never really overeat, I shed weight in the summer, put it on in the winter.” She’s even embraced her imperfections, including ones we’re pretty sure don’t exist. “I love my snaggle fangs,” she says. “They give me character and character is sexy.” Does she have snaggle fangs? Is that a thing?

And, of course, here’s your helpful boob reminder. “Yes, I do have big boobs. People don’t realize because I cover up a lot, but they are there. Big boobs.” If you’ve ever seen the Spiderman movies, we’re pretty sure you realized. There’s been much written about Kirsten’s battles with depression, so it’s good to see that she seems so much happier! Keep it up, lady.

Kim Kardashian Uninvites 50 Wedding Guests To Fit Camera Crew

Life ain’t always easy for a bride-to-be. Just ask Kim Kardashian, who now has the awkward task of uninviting 50 guests from her wedding to Kris Humphries. But it’s nothing personal, you guys! It just looks like there isn’t enough room for all of her friends and the film crew for her four-hour reality show special. So rather than cut down on camera angles, some of Kim’s peeps are getting the boot. Can we get a sad trombone?

The happy Kouple are reportedly getting married at the Sotto Il Monte mansion in Montecito, Califorina. But according to sources, the local fire marshal wasn’t happy when he learned that a massive production crew and camera equipment would also be roaming the 10.9 acre estate. After much back and forth, the marshal demanded that Kim trim her list. With just two days to go before the big day, that’s probably gonna piss some people off. But hey, at least they can watch the blessed union in TV, right?

Despite the guest list trauma, Kim and her Klan looked radiant last night at the launch of their Kardashian Kollection clothes line in Los Angeles. Check out more in the gallery below!

Muppets Table Read Moved Jason Segel To Tears

It’s not every day that a talking piece of felt can make a grown man weep. But that’s exactly what happened to at the first table reading for the upcoming Muppets revival. The film was a labor of love for its writer and star, Jason Segel, a massive lifelong Muppet fan. And hearing Kermit the Frog speak the words he’d written got Jason all soaky around the eyes. “We did a table reading, and they’d brought the puppets for the first time,” he explained to HitFix.com.  “We’re all just sitting at the table, and all of a sudden they brought out Kermit and he said the first line that I had written.” And then it got real for the How I Met Your Mother actor. “I just lost my sh-t a little bit. I started crying at the table read and I had to awkwardly ask them to stop filming. It was emotional. He’s been my favorite since I was a little kid.”

Segel spent four years writing his script for the Muppets reboot, and recently spoke to Collider about the emotional collection he sees between kids and the creatures. “I wish you guys were over there so you could see how a kid reacts to those puppets,” he gushed. “It’s one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen. The puppeteer just instantly disappears. You can see the guy standing there with a puppet on his hand and he’s talking, and the kid is looking directly at the puppet.” Jason still gets floored by the Muppet Magic.  “Every time it happens it reminds me of why I wanted to do the movie. It’s a truly beautiful thing.”

Lindsay Lohan Kinda-Sorta-Almost Surfs


We can’t actually say that these are pics of Lindsay Lohan surfing, because she really only gets up on one knee. But still, that’s a hell of a lot closer than we’ll ever get to hangin’ ten, so we’ll give her some serious props. The stunt is actually for a photoshoot, but she fills out a wetsuit nicely as she tackles the waves on the beaches of Malibu. It’s definitely a change of direction from Lilo’s gruesome Tyler Sheild’s shoot that hit the streets yesterday. Check out more of Lindsay’s surfin’ safari in the gallery below!
