These days everyone loves the American version of The Office so much they’re forgetting the original version came from across the pond. So to even the score, the Brits have taken an American TV creation and made it their own.
Check out the British Apprentice. The show, which takes place in London, has the same premise as the original and the same six figure salary grand prize. But instead of The Donald, they’ve got Sir Alan Sugar– a British entrepreneur with a net worth of 800 million pounds and a business selling "set top boxes and personal video recorders." Any guesses as what will replace Trump’s trademarked "You’re Fired"? How about "My good boy, you’ve been cordially asked to leave."
The cast members of Big Love were on The View yesterday, and Joy Behar thought that the morning show was an appropriate forum to ask Chloe Sevigny about the oral-sex scene from The Brown Bunny. It’s incredilby awkward and Behar was totally out of line (and really stupid). Sevigny handled it graciously, but Bill Paxton seemed pretty upset and stands up for her. Word is that he was really pissed after the segment.
Also, you may have also missed the video of Behar hanging with a bunch of male strippers. Luckily, we just happen to have it for you!
Check out TV Land’s Desperate Housewives re-imagined with the stars of classic TV. If you’ve ever wanted to see Barbara Eden wash a car or thought Charo and the Beav would make a steamy couple, you’re TV Land’s target audience. The video was created for the network’s awards show–the biggest night in Hollywood next to the Ace Awards.
Finally, everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the sex lives of the stars of Project Runway. Finally.
Check out this Nerve interview, where Alexis Tirado gets down and dirty (in a literary sense) with Daniel Franco, Diana Eng, Zulema Griffin, and last but not least, Jay McCarroll.
Just to give you a taste of what you’re in for, here’s one of the best quotes from Jay’s interview:
Do you really believe in open relationships?
Yup, because there are people you can be friends with but don’t want to f**k. And then there are people you can be friends with and
f**k. And then there are people you can just f**k. And there are women
you can f**k. And men you can f**k. There’s all sorts of people you can
f**k. And all sorts of people you can have friendships with. Or deeper
relationships. Or cuddle with. Or petting relationships. . .
The man’s a poet. Read it all right here. You’ll never watch Project Jay the same way again.
Sharon Stone is the latest American celebrity to visit Israel. In recent years, the embroiled nation has had to take time away from their political struggles to play host to stars who come for selfish reasons . Whitney Houston visited in 2003 to find inspiration for her Christmas album. While Madonna visited Israel in 2004 to observe the Jewish Holiday and garner strength for her world tour.
But when Sharon Stone visited a women’s economic conference this week, she brought only new-found hope for the turbulent nation. After talks with world leaders and peace-keeping think tanks, the actress presented a solution for region: She has offered to "kiss just about anybody for peace in the Middle East". The UN plans to deliberate this tactic with a closed screening of Basic Instinct 2. More pictures of her tour of duty (thanks to rosiedemario) after the jump…
Easily the funniest thing I’ve seen all week (and that’s including the cheerleader who wouldn’t stop cheering). The emotional final scene of Seven… re-enacted by stuffed animals.
Watch it here. And is it just me, or is the stuffed monkey slightly more expressive than Brad Pitt? I think it is.
Bill Paxton and Chloe Sevigny were taken off guard on The View, and it seems they weren’t too happy about it:
We hear Paxton and Sevigny went ballistic yesterday on the set of "The View" when co-host Joy Behar brought up that infamous scene in the indie flick Brown Bunny where Sevigny pleasures Vincent Gallo.
Though the actors masked their fury from viewers, Paxton is said to have exploded off-camera. According to one source, he even vowed never to appear on the show again.
Sevigny has frequently discussed the scene from the controversial 2003 film, but Paxton apparently didn’t want her to have to relive it on a daytime talk show.
He really takes his TV-husband duties seriously, and good for him. That question was completely out of left field and stupid, even for Behar. Apparently, the exchange was edited out for west-coast viewers. See the video.
