If you caught the premiere episodes of Tori Spelling’s new comback, So NoTORIous, you may have noticed the "reality-based sitcom" had more than a few recognizable characters.
In the show’s second episode, Tori, joins a hollywood cult-religion call "Whole" that’s eager to welcome celebrities into it’s fold. But it’s main celebrity representive is an actor named Mark Berry who sports a midlife crisis jacket, a short stature and a beard (and not the kind that grows on your face).
The character of Berry is a closeted gay man who loves his faux girlfriend but loves hooking up with other guys in the "Whole" sauna even more. Since it is a show based on reality, we assume Berry is inspired by some spiritually-obessesed, vertically-challenged, sexually-perplexed Hollywood celebrity, but we just can’t place our finger on who…
You probably don’t remember HBO’s Hardcore TV from the early 90′s, but thanks to the miracle of the Internet, you can check out their long-lost sketch that pre-dated the recent "mash-up" trend by about 13 years: Raging Bullwinkle!

In 2004, Avril Lavigne and Hilary Duff were engaged in a gossip-generated feud. While the two had never met in person, they exchanged blows via press interviews.
Hilary said Avril needs to appreciate her fans more and Avril called Duff a mama’s girl.
But when the pair finally hung out this past weekend, two years after the feud, instead of swapping insults–the former rivals swapped hair-color. Too bad for their matching pop-punk boyfriends they didn’t swap anything else.
KFed works hard for his money. A wacky DJ in Dallas challenged Kevin to a dance off on that Dance Revolution game that the teenage kids at the mall seem to love. You have to watch the video if you want to see Kevin work for a paycheck for the first time EVER. I think he has a future in competitive video game dancing. Maybe he should quit his non-existant day job and get on that.
I don’t know if anyone’s been checking out the official McDonald’s website lately (and really, why would you?), but it would seem that unhealthy, processed, barely-edible food is not just for white people anymore!
Judging from the primary navigation on the left hand side of the "fun new website" (click the image on right to see for yourself), the Golden Arches goodness can now be easily enjoyed by the following people:
Homeless and/or Alcoholic
The Morbidly Obese
Mexican Grafitti Artists
Hippies (and Spanish-Speaking Hippies)
Asians Who Will Admit To It
And worst of all, Bloggers
Also, don’t forget to click through their downright bizarre "Premium Coffee" promo. Apparently their Ad Wizards are now getting as high as the people who eat there.
Even in a skirt, Tony’s all man.
How ya’ doing with your NCAA tournament pool? Yeah, same here (thanks a lot George Mason). Well, if you didn’t predict Florida and UCLA going at it tonight, or if you could care less about Florida and UCLA going at it tonight, do I have the tournament for you.
Band Madness. 512 bands going head to head, NCAA tournament style. You vote for the better band, the more popular one moves on. The best thing about it? One, you can listen to the artists, two, that annoying dude by the watercooler isn’t going to ask you stupid questions about who you picked and why, and three, you’re not going to lose $20 after you pick all the wrong guys. It’s pretty genius, actually. Take that, sports fans. [Play it here]
If you’re anything like me, you’ve always wanted to watch a show about Rosie O’Donnell on a cruise liner filled with gay families. Well you’re in luck because, thanks to our friends at HBO, this Thursday you have that chance.
"Ms. O’Donnell said what she wanted to do was simple: to
provide a relaxing place where nobody would stare or ask stupid
questions about two lesbians bringing up a family, or two gay men with
a bunch of kids and not a woman in sight…An uglier side of life intrudes when the ship docks in Nassau and is met by protestors with signs like "We don’t welcome sissies in the
Bahamas," and shouting, even at the cowering children."
Will this Brokeback Boat of Love be able to navigate through the murky waters of ignorance and intolerance? Be sure to tune in Thursday to find out for yourself.
According to cult expert Rick Ross, Lindsay Lohan has committed herself to Kabbalah. While she had previously been spotted sporting the red string, the actress has confirmed that the religion means more to her than just a fashion statement. When asked about her involvement, the actress replied: â€œYes, I am looking into Kabbalah. All of us need something. You just have to grab on to whatever can get you through."
We thought that’s what Wilmer was for. He may rely on as many celebrities for his own success but at least he’s got something to grab on to.
Christian Finnegan celebrated his birthday the way many a 14-year-old girl would have loved to have spent theirs in 1998– with Carson Daly. Lucky bastard. Watch Christian’s hilarious stand-up performance here, then go wish him a Happy Birthday. Just make sure you’re not wearing a Red Sox hat when you do. That’ll make sense after you watch the clip.
Happy Birthday Christian!
