I’m Sarah Silverman, B*tch!



Sarah Silverman is tapped to fill the Dave Chappelle sized hole in Comedy Central’s heart. According to Reuters, the show is called The Sarah Silverman program and will premiere in the summer. Also, she will play a “character — also named Sarah Silverman — whose absurd daily life will be told through an array of scripted comedic scenes and songs.” Joe Franklin can’t like this development.

God Save the Queen



Beautiful Brooke Burke has managed to see beyond the Burger King’s shiny plastic veneer to fall for a man who will make her a queen.  Detractors say, she’s only using him to make a Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch spokesperson Darius Rucker jealous.   Check out more pics from Burger King’s paparazzi parody.

Anna Benson Cashes in Her Chips



Watch out Nick “the Greek” Dandalos, Anna Benson is coming after you:

Benson could find herself getting plenty of face time on ESPN in the coming year. Not during baseball games, but more likely during one of the network’s ubiquitous poker broadcasts. The wife of Orioles pitcher Kris Benson has been polishing her game by playing nearly every day, whether online, on her cell phone or even live and in person. She also recently signed a deal to endorse and promote a fledgling poker Web site. "I’m still a young little poker player. I’ve got a long ways to go," Benson said. "It is a thrill to me. They call it a sport now, so it’s kind of cool for me to come in and be my own type of an athlete.”

She learned how to play from Rickey Henderson and Bobby Bonilla.

Dr. Pepper Gets Knocked Off



Check out this site decidacted to keeping a database of Dr. Pepper Knock-Offs across the country. If you want to save a few pennies consider drinking the no-frills Dr. Pepper Taste Alikes like Dr. Shaws (only available in New Hampshire), Doc Shasta (available Lawrence, Kansas) or Dr. Smooth (avaiable in Chicago)

But if you want the real thing, I recommend: prune juice, sprite and a good stir.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Billy Corgan Pro Wrestler???


The Smashing Pumpkins were rumored to headline Coachella this year, but since they’re not, we’re going to share with you this classic clip of Billy Corgan’s appearance on ECW, nearly getting his pumpkin smashed for being a "devil worshiper" (wrestling fans don’t like devil worshippers). 

Say It Isn’t Not So!



We’re not stupid. We know that reality TV distorts reality to tell good stories. Please, I think VH1 alone has dedicated at least three days worth of Awesomely Bad programming to the matter. We get it, and we tolerate it. However. Today. Today I hit my breaking point.

Ashley Parker Angel and the Case of the Pillar Candle



If you’ve been watching MTV’s new reality show, There and Back about former boy-band member Ashley Parker Angel’s struggle to reclaim musical success. In the past few episodes, Ashley has had to ask his mother in law, his record label and even his neighbors for money to pay the rent.

What the so-called reality show is not exposing is the real reason why Ashley’s in the hole. In last night’s episode, every room in Ashley’s house-even the backyard- was decorated in pillar candles. That’s $15 a pop at pottery barn. I suggest Ashley cuts back on his candle habit before it burns him even more

A BWE Oscars Drinking Game



While you’re watching the Oscars, take a drink every time someone mentions “courage” or “bravery.” I know the show isn’t until March, but I have a feeling you’ll need the time to build up your tolerance.
