Sharknado 2: The Second One premiered last night on Syfy and it was exactly what you’d expect—times two. Giant sharks swirling around a giant tornado terrorized unsuspecting humans, but this time the weather phenomenon stormed the streets of the Big Apple. Needless to say, Lady Liberty was not pleased.
With a nightmarish take on extreme weather, last year’s Sharknado got our vote for best shark movie of all-time. With its sequel — creatively titled Sharknado 2: The Second One — premiering tonight, it’s time to look at the scariest sharks to roam the streets of Hollywood. Read more…
Get your final dose of celebrity news today with Last Lap. Alec Baldwin stands behind his rant against police, Miles Teller is ready to give fans Whipflash, and Tara Reid sees something scary in the weather forecast.
The Gossip Table dishes about our TLC movie, which premieres tonight, Tara Reid hits out at Jason Biggs, and we wonder if a villain from the Thor flicks will soon get a spin-off.
It’s safe to say that summer 2013 was definitely Sharknado season, with the campy Syfy movie dominating Twitter (not to mention our DVRs).
And since the flick starred Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, two of the top hotties from the ’90s, we were wondering how many other teen idols found themselves gracing the guilty-pleasure realm of TV movies. Check out our gallery of other young stars who went a slightly cheesy route.
It’s Easter time, which means people all across America are hitting the drug store to get their Paas on in time for Sunday. It’s also a time where kids all over the nation head to their local shopping mall to get in some quality time with the Easter bunny, a practice that seems to excite and terrify children in equal measure. In fact, we count ourselves among the frightened lot, as this is the time of year when giant, anthropomorphized rabbits tend to haunt our nightmares. It seems that other pop culture icons feel similarly about bunnies, creatures that seem “cute and fuzzy” (to quote One Crazy Summer) on the outside but we all know they harbor an evil, ravenous thirst for human blood on the inside (or so we fear). To wit, here is Best Week Ever’s countdown of the Top 10 Most Terrifying Bunnies In Pop Culture History.
Taylor Swift is holding hands with Harry Styles of One Direction, Lindsay Lohan is partying down and stealing the sweatshirt of Max George from The Wanted. Boy bands are back in a big way, and they’re stealing some of the brightest lights in tinsel town! But then again, who could blame them with their cool hair and cool clothes and…other cool guys with cool hair and cool clothes around them. Gah, sometimes is really does pay to travel in groups!
Tay and Lilo are definitely not the first famous ladies who have been swayed by the charms of a boy-bander. And chances are high that they won’t be the last either! Sure, everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but remember that time he hooked up with Jenna Dewan? They obviously didn’t last, but we guess she made out ok in the end by marrying Channing Tatum and all. Before her punch-filled love triangle, Halle Berry stepped out with New Kid on the Block Danny Wood. Joe Jonas can count Camilla Belle and Taylor Swift among his suitors, whereas Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus preferred his brother Nick. Head down to the gallery below to see the boy-band hookups that you totally forgot about!

It’s safe to say the best part of Halloween is checking out everyone’s costumes, especially celebrities — they’ve got mountains of money, they dress up for a living, they should really be the best at this, right? Unfortunately, some celebs are blessed with both an overabundance of creativity and a lack of good decision-making skills, and there’s a fine line between really great and successful costumes and weird, played out and awful ones. Between Aaron Carter‘s pimp suit (played out and weird for a 14-year-old) and Perez Hilton‘s interpretation of Lady Gaga (weird and awful) there’s no shortage of odd getups. Here are 20 that probably should have never, ever happened.

Someone get Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan a pen, a piece of paper and someone to take notes for them, because they both have to go lie down for a little while! As has been made clear from recent events/arrests, these ladies need to learn the best way to leave a party. Fortunately for them, Tara Reid is teaching and school is in session. TMZ has video of the American Pie star drunkenly tumbling over a parked motorcycle in St. Tropez, taking down herself and a friend before sheepishly wobbling back to a yacht. On one hand, the video goes from funny to uncomfortable to sad in a microsecond. On the other hand, hey, Tara’s not in a car! And if she was walking to a car when she ran into a motorcycle, at least she never got there!
As delightful as it is to see any celebrity stumble into a pile of bike parts and waving limbs, the whole thing takes on a more sober meaning when you remember that Reid went to rehab less than three years ago. On a related note, is it us or is Tara’s life nearly identical to that of 30 Rock‘s Jenna Maroney? Yacht parties aside, remember when Tara got married to Zack Kehayov in 2011…only to reveal later that the marriage wasn’t technically legal? Or the fact that she’s constantly hanging out with Jedward? Just don’t let that woman near Mickey Rourke. Or any more motorcycles.

When P. Diddy throws a party, everyone comes. When Diddy throws a party on a boat in Cannes, you’d better believe that they’d come pouring in. He’s like the entertainment ring master and really knows how to make a splash — pun, intended. A clutch of celebrities dropped in for the bash, most of them casually barefoot. High heels and wooden planks don’t go particularly well together. Spotted wearing black were Michelle Rodriguez and Benicio del Toro, the latter of whom kept trying to dodge cameras. Adrien Brody was relaxed in jeans and a jacket, while Kelly Brook made two wardrobe changes — one while arriving, and one while onboard. Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Nicky Hilton added starlet glamour, and we’re pretty sure Tara Reid would like to be included in that group. Kim wore a gown that generously showed off her curves, of course. Head on over to the gallery to see the stars in action.
