Our Wednesday night felt colder and more alone than usual this past week, when we realized Project Runway wasn’t going to be on the air for another few months. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do a quick wrap up of all the things you should take a look at:
We’d also like to announce the OFFICIAL WINNER OF THE “SHOW US YOUR GUNNS” CONTEST to be…. JEFFREY SEBELIA, who rings in with 58 votes. Michael (29 votes) didn’t even come in second! More people voted (32 to be exact) that Tim/Santino (Tim-tino?) did a better impression, and some refused to vote at all. So, once AGain, congratulations to Jeffrey, and thanks to both guys for being good sports about the whole thing.
Guys, anyone with an Internet connection knows that Paris Hilton hasn’t been tight-lipped about anything since she was about sixteen.
If only this Madonna was the one on Oprah this week- it would’ve been so much more interesting.
Congratulations to Katie Krome for submitting our favorite entry in the Oprah’s Boob Tube photoshop contest.. And thanks to everyone who sent in something. We’ve included a few more of our favorites below.
Meatloaf appeared on this morning’s Today Show to promote the third installment of Bat Out of Hell. And if ever someone looked like they were dumping a 55 pound load in their pants, it would have to be this guy. He seriously doesn’t hit a single note — except for the most important note, the high C that is Showmanship. Just promise us you’ll stick around for the end where the guy seriously loses it and gets up all in some leather girl’s grill.
As millions of grown men and women prepare themselves for a weekend of excessive drinking while parading around in costumes that are either a) incredibly slutty, b) obnoxiously cliched or c) purposefully tasteless, we here at BWE would like to take a moment to make a simple request: This Halloween, please, whatever you do, don’t dress up as The Crocodile Hunter.
Are we urging you stay away from the Steve Irwin duds because it’s “too soon”? Absolutely not. Nelson de la Rosa, an 18-inch tall Dominican actor who was famously paraded around by Pedro Martinez during the Boston Red Sox 2004 Championship run passed away five days ago; if you want to dress up as him, you’re more than welcome (and honestly, we’d love to see how you pull it off.) But if you hit the town as our buddy Steve, you manage to pull off the rare double whammy of being both obnoxiously cliched AND purposely tasteless. And that’s never good. Not even with the “clever” addition of a stingray hanging out of your chest. Sorry, pal.
So stay away from the Crocodile Hunter this year. Unless, of course, you decide to whore it up and go out as The Slutty Crocodile Hunter. Three wrongs do make a right.
Borat has been surrounded by a lot of controversey lately, but luckily Madonna has come to his defense by going on Oprah to tell the world about this misunderstood man. Check out this clip from BWE editor Rob Vernola.
We get a lotta crap for reading the NY Post, New York City’s premiere trashy tabloid. Sure, they have the political intelligence of a 4th grader in the Third Reich, and fine, their political cartoonists are kinda sorta gay bashy, but we don’t go there for the real news. We plunk down $.25 each morning to read the junky stuff: Page Six, the Pulse section, Marmaduke. Which is why we were dismayed — DISMAYED — to see that our favorite paper put one of the least deserving actresses on the cover today for no reason. Sienna Miller. Sienna Miller, on the cover of our celebrity bible! We were, to say the least, steamed. It seems like the Post needed our guidance.
So we compiled a list of Things We Would Rather See on the Cover of the NY Post Other Than Sienna Miller — check it out after the jump!
Can’t wait till Tuesday to hear the new K-Fed album (wait… seriously, you can’t? What’s wrong with you?) AOL music is hosting a Kevin Federline listening party where you can stream the full album AND get some insight as to what all of the songs are about. Hear Kevin opine over how “League Of My Own” is a look inside exactly how he feels about “the industry,” and how “Dance With A Pimp” is about “loving women.” And make sure not to miss the song where he says “things that people don’t know” about him, “World Is Mine”. Now in the interest of full disclosure, I should probably mention that I didn’t actually listen to any of the above songs or the audio descriptions. Come on. I’m not a sadist.

Prior to Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars attacking hobbits and bloggers at the mtvU Woodie Awards at the Roseland Ballroom here in NYC Wednesday night, there was the calm before the storm on the red carpet, and yours truly had a great time catching up with Beck, Lady Sovereign, my man Ghostface Killah, Gym Class Heroes, The Subways and more assorted artists who didn’t feel the need to show everyone how tough they could be while wearing guyliner. Check it out!
