Kristin Cavallari’s favorite celebrity news outlet is perhaps E! News. E! does not drag her into drama and shit, like Us Weekly does, and it was E! that first broke the news that Kristin was writing a book.* Kristin has done a lot of interviews with E!, including an E! Entertainment Special about her life, which I keep forgetting to post here. (It’s 22 minutes long.)
For some evil reason, E! devoted an hour of programming to Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt last night. The where-are-they-now special After Shock: Heidi & Spencer caught us up on two people we never wanted to hear from again (he gained 50 lbs., from eating pie and is in law school, she wants babies and is still distracted by shiny things).
Last night E! aired a special called Life After Anna Nicole: The Larry & Dannielynn Story, which was suposedly about Dannielynn, Anna Nicole's 7-year-old daughter, and the man she made her with, Larry Birkhead. Except it was more like a reality show pilot (seemingly constructed conversations and all), and it wasn't so much Dannielynn's story as Larry Birkhead's. That's disappointing because we've heard a lot from him, while Dannielynn has been sort of shrouded in mystery, despite periodical cameos in the spotlight (including modeling for Guess, just like her mom). The child barely said two dozen words for the entire hour. Still, a lovely kid. Clips of her—the real reason to watch the doc—are above.
E! is developing a reality show based on Rich Kids of Instagram called Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. Remember when E! used to send socialites into the woods before they were allowed to be famous? Update: The anonymous curators behind Rich Kids of Instragram emailed Gawker to note that they "are not associated" with this unscripted series. They did, however, promise a "major announcement coming in a few weeks." Does a lawsuit against E! count as major?
In February, the threat of HISTORIC, EXTREME SNOW whipped Weather.com into such a frothy euphoria that it combusted from within, vomiting broken mountain graphics all over its homepage. Now, the unbearable ecstasy of the final days of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy has driven E! Online—the relentlessly chipper, unnervingly dedicated sophomore class secretary of celebrity news—to the brink of insanity.
Have you ever watched a movie in which an inanimate object comes to life or a human being switches bodies with an animal and thought to yourself "I wonder what it would be like if that actually happened?"
Whitney Cummings' new E! talk show, Love You, Mean It, debuted last night and her first guest was Mindy Kaling. They gnawed the air at each other, swapped compliments and said "like" collectively over 40 times. I strung together all of the latter instances for the reel above. Many of us are guilty of this, myself included. Every time I catch myself doing this, I grind my teeth and one day soon I won't have any teeth and pronouncing a word like "like" will approach impossibility. I'm just saying, like, let's all be more aware of it.
Sunday night's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York featured a discussion between Kim Kardashian and her neanderthal then-husband Kris Humphries about having kids, which they ultimately decide to do. Right away!
On Thursday, Lady Gaga debuted the music video for her latest single, "Marry the Night." Directed by Gaga herself and clocking in at just under 14 minutes, the epic mini-movie begins with a defeated Gaga being wheeled on a gurney into the psychiatric ward of a hospital. "I'm gonna be a star," she says.
When Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from neanderthal Kris Humphries on Halloween after only 72 days of wedded bliss, many were shocked. But after watching tonight's premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, even someone as dumb as Humphries himself should be able to see that the marriage was doomed from the onset. To illustrate that point, I made a video of the episode's most contentious Kim vs. Kris moments, which you'll find above. [Kourtney and Kim Take New York]
For a segment on E!'s Friday night guilty pleasure Fashion Police, comedic warhorse Joan Rivers found a picture Jersey Shore tequila swiller Snooki tweeted of her and her cat and decided to make a string of rather amusing and absolutely crass double entendres about Snooki's pussy. This is why I love this show. Not only is Joan hilarious, but Kelly Osbourne laughs hysterically and seems shocked. If you can shock Kelly Osbourne, you know you said something really fucked up.
