We’re going to leave it up to the pundits to predict which of the many new shows presented at this week’s network upfronts will rise to the top come fall TV season. All we know is, we may have re-watched the clip of Stephen Amell doing pull-ups in the CW’s Arrow about 10 times this morning. (Sorry, lost count.) Point is, there are a whole lot of new faces for us to ogle — and about as many returning ones we’ve been longing for — on the schedules that were announced this week.
What the hell is going on at 666 Park Avenue (ABC’s new drama)? We can only tell that Vanessa Williams is still devilishly hot, and Dave Annable and Rachael Taylor have the kind of sex appeal that might entice us to sell our souls too. We are squealing with delight at the return of Felicity boys Scott Speedman AND Scott Foley to TV this fall — Speedy’s a naval officer in Last Resort, while Foley’s one of the siblings competing for his father’s fortune in the Fox comedy The Goodwin Games.
Vampire Diaries alum and Lady Gaga ex Taylor Kinney gets extra dirty as a firefighter in NBC’s Chicago Fire. We’re also thrilled to see Smallville’s Kristen Kreuk get her Linda Hamilton on in the CW’s Beauty and the Beast reboot. (That’ll have to do for re-imagined faves on the network, since The Carrie Diaries won’t debut until midseason, grrr.) This season has its share of hot doctors — Jordana Spiro and Zach Gilford in The Mob Doctor; Mamie Gummer, Justin Hartley and Aja Naomi King in Emily Owens M.D.; Mindy Kaling in The Mindy Project; Justin Bartha in The New Normal; Lucy Liu in Elementary, and Justin Kirk (as a vet) in Animal Practice. There are superstars, like country singers Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere in Nashville, and there are those just struggling to survive, like Revolution’s Billy Burke and Tracy Spiridakos. Let’s not forget the updated versions of TV’s favorite professions: detectives (Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock Holmes in Elementary, Kevin Bacon in The Following) and lawyers (Janet Montgomery in Made in Jersey). But like we said, enough talk for now. It’s time to enjoy this eye candy before we have to pick and choose who gets the DVR love at the end of summer.

Way before Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, music’s reigning queen of crazy style was also the queen of disco! Donna Summer was known not only for her sultry voice and lusty hits like “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff,” but also for her unmatched wardrobe. Her live performances, music videos and spots on top shows like Soul Train were always a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Today we lost a glittering legend whose dance floor smashes could wake you up better than a cold shower and a hot coffee! So to pay tribute to the divine Ms. Summer, we’ve compiled a list of her 20 most outrageous outfits ever. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go listen to all 17 minutes of “Love To Love You Baby.” And, of course, “Last Dance.”

Snooki’s little meatball in the oven is showing, and it’s adorable as you might expect. “In love with this. Shows off the bump perfectly,” the Jersey Shore star tweeted with a photo of herself looking quite svelte, with the exception of said bump, in a black floor-length dress.
We’re happy to see that in addition to giving up tanning while she’s pregnant (as evidenced by a “pale” pic of herself she posted last week), she’s also consented to wear dresses that fall below mid-thigh once in a while. This might be because she’s still enjoying the benefit of her pregnancy cleavage.
Snooks and fiance Jionni LaValle are expecting their baby in late summer, so we look forward to plenty more bump photos to come.
Oh, and what about making things official with Jionni? She talked to Life & Style about her wedding earlier this month, saying that Pauly D would DJ, and promising that she’d televise the whole thing. “I show everything in my life, so why not show the wedding?”

The 65th annual Cannes Film festival kicked off in high style today, as celebs from all around the world descended to the coastal town with their finest clothes and accessories. Eva Longoria and Diane Kruger both made big entrances in huge Cinderella gowns with trains that could stretch all the way to Paris! Jessica Chastain’s dress was a little more streamlined, but definitely drew attention with a plunging neckline. The dudes cleaned up pretty nicely as well, with action stars Bruce Willis and Chris Pine rockin’ the tuxes, but Sacha Baron Cohen (predictably) stole the show when he rode down the red carpet in full Dictator regalia while on the back of a camel. Sure it’s pretty in-your-face, but at least it’s better than drowning Elisabetta Canalis for publicity, right? We’ll go with yes. Check out more incredible styles in the gallery below!

We all raised our eyebrows when we learned that Elisabetta Canalis went from dating Hollywood king George Clooney to…Steve-O. We won’t flat-out say “downgrade,” but one of those guys just hosted the president and the other got famous by shooting bottle-rockets out of his a–. Just sayin’. And now it looks like Elisabetta is continuing her questionable dating record with Admiral General Aladeen. The Italian supermodel was seen getting cozy with the brutal dictator on-board his fabulous luxury yacht off the coast of Cannes today. Paparazzo snapped photos of the pair slathering each other in tanning oil and sipping champagne, but then something must have gone horribly wrong as the pair began to fight on the deck. Aladeen’s gun-wielding henchmen escorted her away, and moments later they threw a suspiciously body-sized bag over the side of the boat!
Before you call the police, we have it on good authority that the whole incident is just another one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s publicity stunt to launch his latest movie The Dictator, which opens wide today. Sexy, subversive and wildly offensive? Yeah, that sounds like something the Borat star would be mixed up in. So it’s all a joke! Right guys? Right..? Hey Clooney, do you think you could give her a call and check in. We just want to double check. Thanks. Check out the whole incident below and judge for yourself!

Megan Fox is such an effortless sex symbol, we knew a little setback like her battle with Transformers director Michael Bay wouldn’t hold her back for long. As the face of Armani Eye Prime and the butt of Armani Jeans, it’s no wonder Megan tops many “hot” lists. Her curvacious body and baby blues caught the eyes of her husband Brian Austin Green back in 2004 on the set of Hope & Faith, one of her first big TV roles. She’s a rebel too. With eight tattoos and a great pucker, some have pegged her as the next Angelina Jolie. She’s apparently getting rid of her most-known tattoo though, a portrait of Marilyn Monroe. We also hear she may be pregnant. We know for sure that Megan can pull off a great pair of thigh-high stockings while rolling in bed, like her new Sharper Image ad. Today’s Megan’s 26th birthday and we’d like to wish her a big happy birthday by giving you 26 of her steamiest looks. Enjoy!

As the little sister of a pop icon, of course Janet Jackson had it in her genes to be a star. She began her career at the tender age of 10 appearing on her family’s variety show, The Jacksons. Then broke away from the Jackson clan when she appeared on the television series Good Times. But it soon became apparent that acting wasn’t the only talent Janet possessed, and she signed a record deal in 1982. Janet exploded as a true pop star when her third album Control reached the top of the charts with such hits as “What Have You Done For Me Lately” and “Nasty,” while her hot ensembles and killer body made her a sex symbol. Twenty-five years later, Janet still busts a move on her tours and is one of the leading black actresses in Hollywood in films like Why Did I Get Married Too? and For Colored Girls. Today Janet turns 46 years old, inspiring us to take a stroll down memory lane to just where Janet’s success began. Here are 46 pics of her from little Janet to Ms. Jackson through the years.

Is it really “side boob” if 94% of your chest is visible? Can it be called a ‘nip slip’ if your dress was never designed to cover your nipples anyway? Speaking of nipples. where … where are they? They are going to have to make a Men In Black IV just to get to the bottom of these mysteries! Germany’s Next Top Model contestant Micaela Schaefer took to the Men In Black III red carpet in Germany wearing what appears to be unspooled VHS tape tied to a necklace. We are always telling people to belt it. We’ve just never been referring to Halloween streamers they bought at the party supply store!
Other stars like Will Smith, Josh Brolin and Nicole Scherzinger also attended yesterday’s premiere, not that you’d know it. Seriously, how is it that Micaela here can wear what amounts to an electrical tape gown in public and not be immediately escorted off the premises as the rest of us would? We need answers! Someone get us Tommy Lee Jones, a black suit and one of those dealies that erases your mind! On second though….just the mind-erase dealie. We’re way too lazy to travel through time for this…

Although Kristen Stewart can glam it up like no other on the red carpet, it’s no secret that she’s much more at home in a pair of jeans and sneakers. Then again, aren’t we all? The only difference is that Kristen can make a vintage t-shirt look just as Vogue-y as a zillion dollar Monique Lhuillier dress! Whatever the occasion, the actress has made a habit of changing out of her high style gowns (or suits) into something a little more chill as the evening goes on. Last night was no different as Kstew ditched the sheer Marchesa she wore to the Snow White And The Huntsman premiere in London for a more rock ‘n’ roll jeans and leather jacket. She reportedly partied until 5 AM at Quo Vadis Private Members Club along side fellow SWATH star Charlize Theron and “boyfriend” (!) Robert Pattinson. Rock on, Kristen! Check out some of her best dress up/dress down looks in the gallery below.

We had two thoughts when we first saw Gisele Bundchen’s fantastic cover for the June/July issue of Vogue Paris: 1) Damn, we really need to get in shape for summer, and 2) whatever happened to the Coppertone Girl? Of course that was once our minds regained the power of words after processing Mrs. Tom Brady’s fantastic-yet-sandy backside. Imagine the effort that went into that sand placement. There’s no way Vogue would leave that to chance. They probably added each grain piece of piece until they had it exactly to their specifications. It’s like the sexiest mosaic that the world has ever known. The fact that we didn’t even realize she was topless really speaks to the mystical power of Gisele’s booty. We love how she stares down the camera with a look that definitely says, “Yes, I’m covered in sand, but my bottom mustn’t be disturbed.” Who knows what other pix can be found under the cover? We’ll have to wait a few more weeks until the mag hits the streets to find out!
