Orange is the New Black is the show to be talking about this summer, and its cast is the hottest group of performers in Hollywood. If you’ve been a diehard fan since season one, this is nothing new; you probably feel like a proud relative as you’ve watched this relatively unknown ensemble command the spotlight. They’re winning awards! They’re on late-night TV! They’re riding floats!
If you’re anything like us, you burned through season two of Orange Is The New Black at a pace you’re probably ashamed to admit. Although we’re firm believers that there’s 24 hours of prime OITNB viewing time in a day, and only 13 of those needed to watch the new season, we’re a little disappointed in our inability to stretch the show out over a longer period of time. What are we supposed to do now? In our overzealous excitement, we’ve left ourselves sadly OITNB-less for a full year, and all it took was one weekend.
Oh snap! Things are about to get a whole lot WASP-ier and a whole lot more dangerous on Best Week Ever‘s “The New Inmates Of Orange Is The New Black.” Orange Is The New Black‘s very own Taryn Manning is joining the cellblock as a familiar looking face–but a completely new character. Sure, she looks just like Pennsatucky, but that’s only because she’s Pennasatucky’s evil twin sister: New Hamsichusettes! Hold on to your pearls and beware of cardigans because it’s about to go down. How down? Real low down. So check out the clip above and be sure to tune in for an all-new episode of Best Week Ever tomorrow, Friday, October 18 at 10/9 C!
On the one hand, we could definitely get used to showing up at work everyday in what is essentially pajamas, without having to do our hair or makeup. On the other, we wondered if the stars of Orange Is the New Black feel they need to try extra hard to dress up off-screen just to remind us that they’re very pretty ladies.
We’re sure there are very nice people who go to the Dream Downtown Hotel and who do not then get arrested or have their photos plastered across gossip sites for otherwise undesirable reasons. But also, we’re starting to believe that we should relocate VH1 Celebrity’s headquarters to the downtown NYC hotel, just to eliminate the middle man. Taryn Manning — star of 8 Mile, Hawaii Five-O, Crossroads, and/or Hustle & Flow, depending on your demographic — was arrested in her room at the Dream last night after being accused of punching and kicking her makeup artist, according to TMZ.
In case you’ve been in a cave for the past three weeks, here’s a little recap of what’s gone down at Dream and its nightclub, Electric Room: Lindsay Lohan was accused of a hit and run; Robert Pattinson sat next to a person of the opposite sex and talked to her; and Lindsay and Dina partied and began the fight that ended in a 911 call. But on the bright side, Scarlett Johansson went there on Wednesday night, dressed down so that she was barely recognizable, and hung out with some friends, including Sam Rockwell. But then someone went and told the New York Post that it looked like she was “flirting” with LiLo’s friend, Domingo Zapata. Excuse us, while we go see about their lobby’s WiFi strength.

The cast of Sucker Punch are really having their day in the sun. Never mind that they were quite badly dressed at the movie’s premiere. Nylon magazine tied in their 12th anniversary party with Sucker Punch’s release, and the event drew a fair amount of young Hollywood out of their mansions. FYI, Nylon’s April issue has 5 different covers for each of the 5 stars. Jena Malone was M.I.A at the party, but Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Emily Browning and Jamie Chung held the fort. On the whole, there was better dressing all around than from the premiere. Guess the gang finally called their stylists.
The party also brought out its share of starlets. Seen on the carpet were Brittany Snow, Samaire Armstrong, Nicky Hilton, Dania Ramirez and the like. Kelly Osbourne made an appearance too.
