#CCMA PREVIEW: Paul Scheer And Rob Huebel Interview The Real War Horse

by

To help get you all hot and bothered for tonight’s Critic’s Choice Movie Awards on VH1, here’s a teaser clip of co-hosts Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel sitting down with one of the biggest movie stars of 2011, the horse from War Horse, to hear about Hollywood straight from the horse’s very real mouth.

The video even contains an EXCLUSIVE first look at War Horse’s next film, a prison drama co-starring Michael Cera. I instantly now want to see this fake movie way more than actual War Horse:

Remember, Critics Choice Movie Awards coverage begins on VH1.com tonight at 6 pm Eastern, with our very own Michelle Collins coming to you live from the red carpet, and the show itself airs on VH1 tonight at 8:00!!!

And again, this isn’t just self-promotion – Paul Scheer & Rob Huebel are both super funny hosts and the CCMAs are a VERY COOL THING YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY WATCH. But, uh, so is everything on VH1! Right, bosses? Like Money Hungry, for example.

(Ok seriously, watch the CCMAs at 8. That’s all.)

Jessie J’s Pantsuit Vs Jessie J’s See-Through Dress In London

by (@hallekiefer)

We know what you’re thinking: “There is no way a pantsuit can beat a see-through dress, no matter how wacky or riddled with holes.” Hear us out! We’ll readily admit we’re still somewhat torn between the transparent purple gown worn by Jessie J to the Brit Awards Nominations today at The Savoy Hotel in London, and the amazing matching jacket and pants she changed into afterward. On one hand, Jessie’s pantsuit looks like a walking poster for Weekend At Bernie’s II with more exposed bra. On the other hand, you rarely see exposed granny panties and a leather jacket combined to such utter success. On the other other hand, how can we expect anything less than too much from our girl? Either way, we can all agree it’s still sort of weird to see the “Domino” singer without bangs. Which do you like better?

Top Chef Recap: Don’t Restaurant Wars With SEXAS

by

It’s Top Chef Texas Episode 10, “Restaurant Wars,” the most not really different from any other week anticipated challenge of the year! And this year, it’s a Battle Of The Sexes!!! The restaurants are gonna be so different! Girl Restaurant’s gonna be all like “Wahhhhh I like shopping for pink things I’m a restaurant” and Guy Restaurant is gonna be like “UGGHHH I’m tryna’ watch the RESTAURANT GAME, Restaurant Wife!” These restaurants are married and soo different (but they’re really two peas in a pod).

It’s at this point I should note that I’ve been extremely feverish the last three days and my memory of this episode is more than a little hazy, as is my current state of mind. No Quickfire this week, so let’s get to the ‘cappin!

And wouldn’t you know it, just seconds after the Guy Restaurant (Paul, Ty-Lor, Ed, Chris J) gets going, we have our first “what the hell is anything anyone ever does in Restaurant Wars?” decor shot of the episode:

Khloe Kardashian’s Parents Shut Down Those Paternity Rumors

by (@hallekiefer)

If those rumors about Khloe Kardashian’s paternity had you waking up every 20 minutes drenched in a cold sweat last night, don’t worry. It looks like that gossip is good and quashed by the only two people know for sure the identity of Khloe’s biological parents: Khloe’s biological parents. “I have never heard such crap in my life…get a life,” Kris Jenner raged on Good Morning America today when asked about allegations that Khloe was the product of an affair made by Robert Kardashian‘s second wife Jan Ashley and his widow Ellen. As Kris pointed out, “I mean I was there. I gave birth.  I know who the dad was.” Yeah, reeeeeeally hard to argue with the whole “I conceived and gave birth to her” thing, Jan and Ellen.

If that isn’t enough of a confirmation that Khloe is a full sister to Kim Kardashian, despite her height and the fact we can actually stand her, RumorFix dug up documents from Robert’ Kardashian’s annulment from Ashley in 1999. “Approximately two months after our marriage, I changed my mind,” Kardashian wrote about his decision not to have children with Ashley. “I decided since I already had four biological children, I did not wish to have any more.” As far as we’re concerned, that’s game, set, match, ladies. It would take a DNA test and some very invasive home VHS to convince us otherwise. Not that we wouldn’t thoroughly examine both of them, of course.

Kristen Wiig Gets Darren Criss’ Awards Season Vote

by (@shalapitcher)

Darren Criss’ new Broadway career is to blame for him missing last night’s People’s Choice Awards and won’t be at the Golden Globes this Sunday. But while he’s filling Daniel Radcliffe’s shoes in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, he’s also crossing his fingers for awards season wins for his co-stars on the big and small screens.

“Kristen Wiig is up for several awards and of course I’m rooting for her,” Criss told VH1 this week. The two recently starred together in the upcoming comedy Imogene, in which Criss plays a young Backstreet Boy impersonator who winds up in a relationship with Wiig’s character, a woman who’s been placed in her mother’s custody after faking a suicide attempt. Of course, it’s her previous down-and-out character in Bridesmaids that’s earning all the kudos this awards season: Bridesmaids won Favorite Comedy Movie at the PCAs, it’s up for Best Ensemble and Best Comedy at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards tonight, and she’s up for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes, where the movie is again competing for Best Comedy.

“I’m a little biased, but she doesn’t need my good vibes! She did a killer job in Bridesmaids,” Criss noted. “I think it’s tough to be a funny Hollywood lady. It’s a tough business, it’s a man’s business, comedy. It can be kind of tough. She’s risen above the ranks of many. I wish nothing but the best for her.”

Of course, Glee is also nominated for Best Comedy Series at the Globes. But Criss isn’t too upset about missing the award show to perform as J. Pierrepont Finch on Broadway, calling it “a fine reason to not go to the Golden Globes. I’ll take that any day!”

Head over to CriticsChoice.VH1.com at 6 p.m./ET for our live red carpet stream from the CCMAs, then tune in to VH1 at 8 p.m. for the big show. Of course, keep it locked here for galleries, interviews, fashion analysis and more!

Would Tim Tebow And Katy Perry Be A Match Made In Heaven?

by (@hallekiefer)

See what we did there? According to the Daily Mail, rumor has it that Katy Perry‘s parents are dying to set up a meet-and-marry-our-daughter between Katy and devout Denver Broncos stud Tim Tebow at their church in Huntington Beach. Other than the fact that Katy isn’t even legally divorced yet, we could sort of see this happening. Tim’s got a good job, Perry seems to like ‘em sweaty and bearded, plus we wouldn’t kick Tebow out of bed for reading Psalms too loud, if you get our drift. Unless Tim was reading them, like, way, way, way too loud. We have to get eight hours of sleep or we look puffy.

His handsome muscliness aside, we could totally see Katy’s religious parents being drawn to Tim for his openness about his Christian faith (especially after a bad boy type like Russell Brand). “Katy’s mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again,” the Daily Mail’s source claims. “In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter.” Oh, sorry, wait? We couldn’t hear you over the awesomeness of Tim’s skin-tight football pants. What were you saying? What do you all think?

Check Out “Sh*t Jews Say” Because This Sh*t Will Never Ever Get Old!!!

by

The internet went crazy a few weeks ago for Sh*t Girls Say, a video about sh*t that girls say, which now has 10 million Youtube views and has spawned three subsequent Sh*t Girls Say episodes, as well as countless other more-specific imitators. Over the past three weeks, we’ve seen Sh*t Black Girls Say, Sh*t Spanish Girls Say, Sh*t Asian Girls Say, Sh*t Gay Guys Say, Sh*t White Girls Say…To Black Girls, and others that still get emailed to us on a near-hourly basis.

While this trend should’ve reached an internet critical-mass weeks ago, instead, it keeps right on rolling with new “Sh*t [BLANK] Say” videos every day, ranging from funny specific parodies (Sh*t Gay Guys Say To Their Cats) to videos that are very lame but will still easily top 1 million views just because they are about Sh*t being said (Sh*t Nobody Says).

Rather than continue to fight this clearly unstoppable trend, we went ahead and made our own wacky video, “Sh*t Jews Say”. We think you will find it hilarious and so true! Please watch and remember to share with all your friends of said ethnicity:

SO TRUE, RIGHT??? Y’ALL JEWZ KNOW WHAT I’M TALKIN’ BOUT!!!!!!

(Ok seriously, we done?)

Sinead O’Connor Thanks Followers After Desperate Twitter Plea, Suicide Attempt

by (@hallekiefer)

Hey, can someone in Sinead O’Connor’s life please get her help that isn’t limited to 140 characters? The “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer put out a desperate plea on Twitter last night, asking her followers for advice in her search for mental health services. “[D]oes any1 know a psychiatrist in dublin or wicklow who could urgently see me today please? im really un-well… and in danger,” O’Connor tweeted last night. “[M]e dont wanna leave me kids. or f–k up me work. im sorry worrying any1.. is just am sick and ireland s–t for finding help cant think of any other way.” O’Connor’s tweets come after the singer allegedly admitted to Britain’s The Sun that she had taken an overdose of pills while in L.A. last week. On one hand … oh, dear god. On the other hand, thank you to anyone and everyone who happened to be glued to Sinead O’Connor’s Twitter feed. You done good, guys!

The singer seemed to be in much better spirits after her initial despondent tweets. “[S]o they wus fab help too.. but u all amazing to send numbers and ideas and i love u all so much for that and am feeling much better,” Sinead wrote. When you think about it, if it wasn’t for that whole “Sinead O’Connor’s divorce announced two weeks after Sinead O’Connor’s wedding” debacle, O’Connor might not have collected the followers who pointed her to the help she needed. And at least she didn’t post it to Facebook. There’s nothing less helpful than a “Like.”

John Green Talks Fiction, Swedish Hip-Hop And A Fault In Our Stars Movie

by (@shalapitcher)

The more than 150,000 fans who preordered John Green’s novel The Fault in Our Stars got their signed copies on Tuesday. By today, they are probably wishing they’d also received a coupon for Sephora with their purchase, because seriously, those up-all-night-crying eyes are not a good look. The superstar YA author’s latest is a tearjerker of Jody Picoult levels: It’s about a girl, Hazel, who’s had terminal cancer in her lungs for years, and a boy, Augustus, who had his leg removed due to bone cancer. Luckily, though, it’s also a John Green novel, so there are just as many laughs as there are gutwrenching sobs.

“You have no idea how sad I wanted it to be,” Green told us on the phone on Monday, when we jokingly asked him if he ever wanted to write a “happily ever after” story. “My responsibility is to try to tell true stories. To me a true story is always hopeful, but never simply, uncomplicatedly happy.”

Just to be clear, by “true” he doesn’t mean nonfiction. Though the Looking for Alaska author was inspired to write TFIOS (as fans call it) after befriending a girl with terminal cancer, he is very careful to warn readers that the book’s Hazel is not his late friend Esther.

“There are a lot of particularly superficial similarities between Esther and Hazel. The main superficial similarity is that they’re both very empathetic people,” he said. “But in a lot of ways they’re very, very different, and since Esther isn’t here to defend herself, it was important to me to not claim a close association.”
