Our very own Pete Holmes sent us this hilarious animated short pulled straight from his stand-up routine. You can watch it now, but I’m warning you: you may never look at pinatas the same way again.

You thought Sean Preston, Suri and Shiloh were a big deal? Those are just cabbage patch kids compared to the star power of this shocking, sensational pregnancy announcement!

See the big news for yourself after the jump!

It’s June 22nd; What’s up?


office jim pam.jpgThursday night has become Windfall night. I like the show for 2 reasons: (1) it’s the only decent replacement show I’ve seen in the past few weeks, and (2) Watching Luke Perry on a Thursday night makes me a little nostalgic. If only Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering joined the cast I’d be a happy guy.

Beyond Windfall, I’m not sure what else to watch. The Office is re-running last season’s pivotal “booze cruise” episode (a must see for Office fans), while MTV has new episodes of Making The Band 3, Run’s House, and Pimp My Ride. Also on: Gameshow Challenge on CBS and a So You Think You Can Dance? results show. But what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!

Celebrity MySpace Sleuths


confirmed.jpgForget solicitation and child pornography, the biggest problem with Myspace is that it’s cluttered with fake celebrity pages. How am I supposed to know what’s Nicole Richie’s real myspace page with all those cheap imitations out there? I mean I know this and this aren’t real, but this one and this one may be. But how can I be sure? Well now there’s a way: Confirmed Celebs Only . This myspace page was created to help celebrities and their stalkers eliminate cheap imitations.

The page features pictures of celebs like Adrianne Curry, Stephen Coletti and various porn stars holding signs that bare their real myspace addresses. You can also check for real celebrity myspace pages added to their friends space. And if you have a celebrity myspace page that’s questionable, you can submit it to be checked for authenticity, here. I know there have been some great inventions in the past 100 years, but seriously this is up there with sliced bread and body shots.

EXCLUSIVE: BWE Interviews K-Fed For Chump Change!


Today we hit the streets to attend a Times Square promo event for Virgin Mobile, who is trying to get the message out about the power of the penny, and the importance of saving it from irrelevancy – with the help of Kevin Federline! K-Fed gave a moving speech and answered some hard-hitting one-on-one questions with yours truly, including an “explanation” of why he wasn’t feeling so charitable last weekend in Miami. Virgin CEO Richard Branson didn’t make it to the event due to “plane troubles”, which is ironic since he OWNS an airline. But Kevin more than made up for his absence!

After you watch, if you’ve ever had something you always wanted to say to Kevs, but previously had no way of getting in touch, he invited everyone to send a text message to his “personal” cell phone number at 310-876-4210.

SIZZLER: The Coreys Make TV Comeback, Strong Argument for Tivo


coreys.jpgI’m going to throw some movie titles out there and I want you to tell me what they all have in common: License To Drive, Dream a Little Dream, The Lost Boys, Dream a Little Dream 2, Last Resort. Give up? They all have great buddy chemistry. Oh and 2 Coreys. It looks like some visionary producers finally remembered the sparks that Corey Haim and Corey Feldman generate on screen, because the two are signed to create a new comedy series called,
The Coreys. The show centers on fictional versions of the real life 80’s heroes and follows bachelor Haim as he “shakes things up” for married, conservative Feldman. I know what you’re thinking: The last great Corey project I watched late one night on Skinemax was Blown Away also starring Nicole Eggert. How will anything top that? Well rest assured Corey fans, this show’s going to top everything this odd couple have ever done together. Except of course, the mountains and mountains of blow.
