Have we mentioned that tonight’s episode of Best Week Ever also happens to be its 100th? Also, have we mentioned that Mel Gibson got a DUI and said a bunch of stuff about hating Jews that has destroyed his credibility and possibly his career? If you missed these memos, check out this clip of BWE panelists Christian Finnegan, Sherrod Small and Jessica St. Clair rapping about Mel with Matt Lauer on the Today Show to promote tonight’s special episode, which you will tune into on Vh1 tonight at 11pm.
After making a name for herself as a rite of sexual passage for every hair metal has-been with a hit song between 1983 and 1989, Carmen Electra is using her pseudo-celebrity sex appeal for a much greater purpose: selling “the world’s first weight loss beauty pill”. So if any of you ladies have low self-esteem, feel fat and ugly, and are willing to do whatever is necessary to conform to the unrealistic expections society has placed on your appearance, there are now drugs you can buy that will magically transform you into a sultry sex object for eyeliner-wearing unemployed rockstars, just like Carmen Electra! This miracle drug is available for $49.99 a bottle, and can be found right next to Anna Nicole’s TrimSpa at any store selling useless products that don’t work. Side effects may include nausea, night terrors, mental retardation, manic depression, anorexia, bulimia, nymphomania, syphillis, herpes, loss of dignity and respect, low self-esteem, sex tape appearances, constant burning sensations, and ending up in a ridiculous marriage to some guy with lots of tattoos whose entire vocabulary consists of the words “dude”, “party” and “rock”. But you could also enjoy the same successul results of the product’s very first customer – Pamela Anderson Lee Rock!
Congratulations to the graffiti artist who took it upon himself to honor Mel Gibson‘s favorite town with an official “Welcome to Melibu” sign. Let’s celebrate with a cocktail, yes? (Image via Splash News)
Best Week Ever airs its monumental 100th episode tonight at 11 on VH1. All week long we’ve been sharing 100 seconds of our five favorite subjects from the first 100. Today we’ve finally arrive at Number 1. But In Case You Missed It, here’s the list thus far:
5. Paris Hilton
3. Lindsay Lohan
What a line-up. But now it’s time for #1. Here she is… our favorite celebrity of the first 100 episodes. The one and only Miss Britney Spears.
It’s Friday, and it’s summer, and you know what that means: A news update for the most enjoyable summertime show, Project Runway!
- The recently disqualified Keith Michael* insists that just because he happen to have some illegal instructional design booklets, and just because he happen to think he’s better than Gandhi, does not mean that he is a dirty, dirty liar.
- Michael Slezak at Entertainment Weekly claims to be the biggest Project Runway fan. (Cut to me removing my Tim Gunn facemask Scooby Doo-style and looking pissed.) But the man does bring up a good point: ENOUGH WITH THE GROUP CHALLENGES!
- Wednesday night’s grande scandale pulled in Bravo’s biggest ratings in history. It was also the most watched basic cable show of the night, beating out PAX’s Supermarket Sweep and TV One’s 227 rerun. David Ruprecht will have his revenge, Bravo.
- Tim Gunn compares our favorite show to cilantro. Speaking of which, you’ve got a piece of Project Runway in your teeth… no, higher… little lower… look, just go to the bathroom, you’re nauseating me.
*Ed. Note: The nickname assigned to Keith a few weeks back, “Jude Kinnear” (a reference to his resemblance to Jude Law and Greg Kinnear) has been stricken from the record. Why? Because she’s a real person.
Frankly I’m surprised that The Hoff has been able to make it through this many episodes of America’s Got Talent sitting idly at his judging table, having his abundant talents woefully ignored as a parade of non-Hoff amateurs pollute his stage with their pathetic excuses for an act. Last night it finally became too much for His Royal Hoffness, and like the calvary arriving at the last minute to save the day, The Hoff rode his trusty steed KITT onto the stage to show America what “talent” actually means. At the conclusion of his song, the show’s producers were so moved by the sheer power of The Hoff’s performance, they declared the contest to be over on the grounds that The Hoff has more talent in a single molecule than American has in its entire history as a country.
In honor of this week being the 100th episode of Best Week Ever, we got up the courage to ask Fred Graver, our show’s creator and Executive Producer, to shuffle his own iPod and share the first five resulting songs so you might get some idea of what kind of music a pop culture legend of his stature enjoys listening to, and he even took the time to say a few words about the songs! We just so happen to think the five songs he came up with are the five greatest pieces of music ever recorded, but we also happen to enjoy getting paychecks. Decide for yourselves, then list the results of your own shuffle in the comments section!
“C’mon C’mon”, Von Bondies – My wife has this as the ringtone on her cell phone. She says â€œSome girls are Bond girls, Iâ€™m a VonBondies girl.â€
“Madama Butterfly”, Giacomo Puccini – I went through a big â€œI have to learn what Operaâ€™s all aboutâ€ phase about three years agoâ€¦ I found out I really love opera. And yes, thatâ€™s MARIA F*CKING CALLAS singingâ€¦
“Like A Hurricane”, Neil Young – Hey, iPodâ€¦ youâ€™re on a roll! You ever get a shuffle that seems to be in a really interesting groove, and you think â€œdonâ€™t hit fast forward, because youâ€™ll lose the mojo?â€ Iâ€™m in one of those right now.
“Things”, Paul Westerberg – I love the poppiness of this, and then the underlying cynicism. Itâ€™s a song to a girl telling her that thereâ€™s things the guy wonâ€™t ever tell herâ€¦ ever.
“Blues For Allah”, Grateful Dead – I swear, I didnâ€™t make this upâ€¦ and now Iâ€™m a little embarassedâ€¦ my #5 is almost 21 minutes long!!! And yes, I spent a huge chunk of my college years as a deadheadâ€¦ (ED NOTE: We had no idea there was a hippie in our midst, though it does explain all those wacky colors in the show.)
Wednesday night the whole gang here at Best Week Ever celebrated our show’s 100th episode (airs tonight at 11pm) alongside celebrities, wannabe celebrities, wannabe wannabe celebrities and a whole bunch of other awesome people at Marquee Night Club here in Manhattan (we heard Lohan goes there sometimes). If you’re jealous that you too didn’t get to spend a free booze-filled evening watching Christina Applegate and Chloe Sevigny get themselves photographed while trying to avoid all the junior publicist-types who like to drunkenly inform them of “how awesome” they are, you’ll be so very delighted that photographers were on the scene to capture the magical irony of celebrating our 100th episode with the same kinds of people we spent the first 99 making fun of. Some of our favorite pics, along with captions fondly remembering the fun, are available for your viewing pleasure after the jump. More thumbnails can be seen here and here, or check out some video at TMZ.
Website Gayz of Our Lives (no relation to websites “All My Gay Children” or “Gayneral Gayspital”) has received exclusive pictures from Pam Anderson and Kid Rock‘s nuptuals in St. Tropez. Unsurprisingly, Pam makes the ideal blushing bride, and Kid Rock absolutely reeks of… charm. Yeah, that’s it. Charm. We think the pictures tell a beautiful story, and have put them together to form a beautiful narration of the wedding events. Peruse the photos for yourself, sip some Hypnotiq out of a empty breast implant, and take a free trip to Romance Island, courtesy of Best Week Ever.
Will Ferrell is a genius. I don’t think you can debate that. If you head over to Cracked’s list of the 10 Best Will Ferrell Skits of All Time and somehow manage to watch them all without laughing, I don’t want to know you. Just go away.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby comes out tonight, and it’s guaranteed to be great because it’s a Will Ferrell movie. Remember, there’s a difference between Will Ferrell movies and movies Will Ferrell does. Old School was a Will Ferrell movie, Bewitched was not. Anchorman was a Will Ferrell movie, Melinda & Melinda was not. See what I mean? Talladega Nights is totally a Will Ferrell movie and that’s why it’s going to be incredible (and even if it isn’t, everybody you know will start quoting it anyway).
So what are YOU going to see this weekend? Vote NOW!
