We saw a few photos of Jennie Garth this week looking really good for someone who’s currently going through a divorce — maybe a little too good around the eyes, if you know what we mean. Of course, that made us wonder how the rest of the original flavor Beverly Hills, 90210 gang is doing these days. They’ve certainly gone through a lot of changes since the first episode of aired in October 1990. Some, like Garth and Shannen Doherty, went on to have other successful series on TV (What I Like About You and Charmed, respectively). Others, like Luke Perry and Jason Priestley, didn’t exactly see their careers take off like we expected. Gabrielle Carteris and Tori Spelling have had a good run as moms, both on and off the air. And we’re still waiting to see when Brian Austin Green and wife Megan Fox will announce her bun in the oven. Regardless of where their careers are these days (where is it, Ian Ziering?), we are pleased to report that most of the former residents of that famed zip code are still looking their sunny, attractive selves. And since we began writing this post, that guitar riff has not left our heads, so we’ll always have that. Anyway, check out this gallery of the kids from Beverly Hills High School both back in the day and now.
After seeing her hanging out in London following her performance for BBC Radio’s One Hackney Weekend, it has come to our attention that the more dressed down Rihanna gets, the more we love her. Don’t get us wrong; we love when RiRi gets glam, like the hotness she brought to the MET gala. And of course we love a hyper-stylized pop star like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga as much as the next person. Frankly, however…we love a pop star who shuffles around in giant t-shirts, sweatpants and no makeup even more. It’s like the less Rihanna cares about what people think of her, the hotter she gets. Her flaws make her flawless, is basically what we’re saying. Does that make sense? We love you, RiRi? Who else would pair a sheer top with construction boots? Take a look at our favorite Rihanna I-Don’t-Give-An-Eff looks and see if you can possibly, possibly disagree with us:
So, Jenny McCarthy hasn’t aged in the last 20 years, right? That’s what we’re getting from Jenny McCarthy’s new Playboy cover, which has the Love in The Wild host posing as nude as the day she was born, or at least nude as the day she first posed for Playboy back in 1993. After her initial spread killed, Jenny went on to become a Playmate of the Year, as well as pose approximately 1,000 more times for the magazine. So…can Jenny McCarthy just pose every 5 or 10 years for the rest of her life? We as a society are ready for it. So ready.
“I’m really proud of it,” McCarthy told People about her fishnet-begloved August 2012 cover. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They’re really elegant. It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.” You know what else is surprisingly classy? All of Jenny’s previous Playboy covers. No, seriously, take a look! Personally we think McCarthy is the most jaw-dropping in her most recent photo (Photoshop skills notwithstanding), but take a look at her previous covers and let us know: which of Jenny’s Playboy covers is the smoking-est?
True Blood fan confession time: When I got my copy of Entertainment Weekly a couple of weeks ago, and it turned out that of 11 possible covers, I got the Christopher Meloni one, I was bummed. Why would I some crusty old Vampire Authority guy from Law & Order: SVU when I could have had Joe Manganiello or Alexander Skarsgard? This is obviously because I’ve never really watched SVU, nor did I catch Meloni as the bisexual sociopathic murderer on Oz. Because now that we’ve gotten over the tedious politics and religion of his debut as Roman on last week’s episode and returned to what we love about True Blood (sex and violence), I am please to report that I totally get it.
It almost would have been enough to see Roman’s nuanced handling of Eric and Bill’s betrayal and pledge to find Russell Edgington, nor his sexy bossman order to Steve Newlin. But it was the fact it is basically impossible to imagine Salome (Valentina Servi) wanting to get it on with a third partner after seducing both Bill and Eric. Who could live up to such a task? But yet, as Roman started to strip off his perfectly tailored suit and undo his cufflinks, while talking passionately of his mainstreaming movement, it was easy enough to get the picture. This guy might even be able to go pec for pec up against Alcide. We screencapped his sexiest looks from the “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” episode — with bonus Andy and Eric butt shots, for good measure, in the gallery below.
When Minka Kelly walked into the VH1 offices earlier this year, we kinda thought there was a real-life Barbie making a special appearance on Big Morning Buzz Live. But no, it was the actress, who was promoting her work for the Heart Truth campaign, to raise awareness for heart disease. So, better than Barbie.
We’re sorry things didn’t work out for the actress’ short-lived series, Charlie’s Angels, last fall. Maybe we still couldn’t picture sweet Lyla Garrity — the girl who got Tim Riggins to go to church on Friday Night Lights, for heavens sake — as a tough crime fighter. That’s silly, though, because clearly Minka, who turns 32 today, is a grown lady, not a demure cheerleader. We bet she’ll have better luck convincing us she’s first lady material when she plays Jackie Kennedy in Lee Daniels’The Butler next year. In the meantime, let’s all celebrate her b-day with her 20 hottest looks.
Oh come on! We knew we were never going to own bikinis like Kate Upton does, but now she has to take one-piece swimsuits too? People had almost forgotten the legacy of Pam Anderson, and now Kate’s busting out a red one-piece in Vogue Spain. Couldn’t you have stuck with those terrifyingly small bikini bottoms you were rocking for awhile, girl? Soon everyone else is going to have to start wearing those old-timey striped swimsuits with built-in shorts from the 1920s to avoid comparison. Why did we type that? Now Kate knows what she has to look good in next!
Of course, as “la novia nueva de America,” Kate’s Vogue Spain shoot is only one of approximately one billion photoshoots we’ve seen so far this summer where the Sports Illustrated model has demonstrated her complete mastery of the swimsuit. There’s her patriotic GQ spread, there are those Terry Richardson photos that somehow manage to look way too wholesome to be shot by Terry Richardson, there’s her own bathing suit line. What other swimware could Kate possibly dominate next? Oh no…if she makes wearing a giant Tweetie Bird t-shirt she won at Six Flags over a bathing suit sexy, so help us god…
Today Abraham Lincoln gets reborn on the silver screen as you’ve never seen him before in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! We’re pretty pumped to watch Honest Abe kick Dracula’s ass, but those blood sucking fiends aren’t the scariest part of the movie. It’s downright eerie how much star Benjamin Walker resembles the 12th POTUS! Those steely eyes, the bushy brows, the Amish beard…it’s all there!
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve assembled the 20 most scarily accurate celebrity portrayals of historical figures. Some rely on insane prosthetic and makeup, like Anthony Hopkins taking on the great Alfred Hitchcock. Others like Jared Leto and Charlize Theron just do totally nutty things to their body. And some, like Denzel Washington as Malcolm X, are just born with it. But no matter how they got there, the end result is always unforgettable. Take a look in the gallery below!
We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge andRobert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
Celebrity couples come and go, but we know one famous duo who will survive until the end of time (or at least until their contract runs out). Of course we’re talking about Snooki and JWoww! From the moment these two exploded out of the small screen in a cloud of hair, booze and spray tan goo, we saw that those two had that certain special something. Sure, the Situation has his abs, Pauly D has his blow-out, Ronnie has his Ron-Ron Juice (fun fact: it’s not steroids), and Vinny has his…err, we’ll get back to you. But Snooks and JWoww possessed something greater: complete and total failure to give a f—.
We’re glad someone finally wised up and gave these two dynamos their very own spin-off reality show, the aptly titled Snooki & Jwoww. And even better news? It premieres tonight! So to mark this momentous occasion, we’ve made a little scrapbook documenting their friendship. If we were making an opening credits montage to their new show, we’d use these priceless pix. Is there a female equivalent of a bromance? A “femance?” A “sister-mance?” Meh, we’ll get back to you on that one, too. But whatever it’s called, these two have it. So head on down to the gallery below to see the 25 most hilarious moments brought to us by Snooki and JWoww. Enjoy!
Nick and Drew Lachey called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning to announce that 98 Degrees would be reuniting this summer … for just one show, on August 18 at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Disappointed that it’s just for one show? Or, um, disappointed that this is 98 Degrees reuniting and not ‘NSYNC. Aw, these guys can’t catch a break, even more than a decade after they formed in the shadow of those other beloved boy bands. But then again, maybe it’s time to give the Lachey brothers, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons another chance at your teen-girl screams. After all, they probably aren’t content to rest on their laurels, so they’ll be trying harder. And that Nick has aged quite nicely, wouldn’t you say? You keep making those movies, Justin Timberlake. Continue your mindmeld with the New Kids, Backstreet Boys, we’d like to celebrate the very hotness of the “Thank God I Found You” singers.
