On a more serious note, what books are you guys looking forward to reading??? and what are you reading now?
Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries was evicted by fellow contestants on Thursday, allowing host Julie Chen to confront her for the first time for the racist behavior she displayed on the show.
After she was unanimously voted off the show by the other contestants, Aaryn sat with Chen for a biting interview.
Julie Chen asked Aaryn if she had an explanation for her behavior, but Aaryn appeared to dodge the issue and said the accusations were overblown. But when Chen read word-for-word accounts of what Aaryn had said, the college student changed her tune. “I do not remember saying those things,” she said. “That was not meant to be serious, and if I said those things I feel horrible because I regret that.”[video above]
Earlier this season Aaryn displayed racist and homophobic behavior toward her fellow contestants. In a confrontation with Candice, an African-American contestant, Aaryn adopted an over-the-top black dialect to mock her. At another time she pointed to some snacks and said “I axed… I asked for it.” Aaryn then told Candice “You’ve got me saying axed!”
Candice later said, “I know how to talk. Clearly, that’s a dialect thing. I don’t know how I’m going to make it through this week.”
Aaryn Gries was also overheard mocking Asian-American contestant Helen and referring to openly gay contestant Andy as a queer.
The situation grew so dire that CBS inserted a disclaimer at the beginning of the show saying the views of the contestants did not reflect the network. CBS President Les Moonves even spoke out about the season, saying he found the behavior of Aaryn and other contestants “absolutely appalling.”
“Big Brother is obviously is a social experiment. It always was,” said CBS President Les Moonves. “Clearly that’s what’s happening this year.”
Though Julie Chen was able to confront Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries about her racism on the show, Chen was not able to relay any news from the outside world. Gries will have to wait until the completion of the show to find out that she was fired by her employer for the racism on the show.
The mixture of joy and secondhand embarrassment that I suffered from tonights episode! When the audience laughed at her responses!! AND THE BOOING when she came out OMG!
First came the selfie, now we have the healthie. Loved by super fit celebs - the new trend sees these famous faces posting snaps of them busting their hump down the gym, flexing out in yoga classes, or going for a run.
Miranda Kerr and fellow Victoria Secret's models are all big fans, as is Jessie J, Ellie Goulding, not to mention kung fu loving Gisele.
Here's our pick of the best healthies that almost make us want to get off our asses and do some exercise. Almost....
Eli Roth's new movie (finally!) has earned itself an R rating from the MPAA, and as they do they have listed the reasons for their decision:
Rated R for aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use.
Clearly this tells you whether or not TheGreen Inferno is for you. As a dyed-in-the-wool fan of Italian cannibal movies, this is the second best news I could have gotten about the film (best would have been the movie going out unrated, but let's be realistic. That's for the home video release).
The movie will premiere at TIFF's Midnight Madness, and their blog makes a salient observation about Eli Roth's evolution:
Check out Roth's past MPAA scorecards. His violence started as "strong," then went to "brutal," then "sadistic," and finally to The Green Inferno's particularly evocative "aberrant." That's called "growing as a filmmaker."
Aberrant violence! It's like the MPAA is doing marketing now.
Miley Cyrus is on a roll and it seems she really can’t stop – with the risqué behaviour, that is.
The once wholesome Disney star is on a racy streak and judging by her latest photo shoot, isn’t planning on slowing down any time.
Just in case we hadn’t seen enough, the 20-year-old has stripped to some skimpy ensembles to pose for Notion magazine.
Miley can be seen in skintight white PVC trousers and a matching crop top with the word ‘business’ repeatedly scrawled across it.
For one image, the actress and singer leans forwards, sticking out her derriere which has the letter ‘M’ for Miley printed on it.
The former Hannah Montana star is sporting lots of red lipstick for the shoot and in one photo seductively bites on her finger.
Marvel Studios has released the first TV spot for Thor #2. Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013 directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimidall, Zachary Levi as Fandral and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Kurse.
Congratulations to Tom Hiddleston, who has won his second straight title as Anglo Fan Favorites Man of the Year. He defeated 2011 champion Alan Rickman 56 to 44 percent. The two actors traded leads for much of last weekend, but Hiddleston eventually extended a comfortable margin over Rickman, which he maintained through to the finish line.
Hiddleston, best known for his role as villainous Loki in the Thor films and The Avengers, has inspired a formidable following in a relatively short period of time. (The first Thor film was released in 2011.) His dominance in this year’s tournament raises the question — can anyone beat this guy?
Benedict Cumberbatch, runner-up to Hiddleston last year and the presumptive favorite this year, defeated Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith for third place 64 to 36 percent.
Teresa is facing a whopping 39 counts of fraud and tax evasion and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the star’s finances are so dire that she has resorted to begging her fans to pay her bills.
The star will be making an appearance to ask her loyal followers to donate money to her legal defense at the Malibu Beach Resort on Thursday night.
“Her supporters and millions of fans around the world strongly believe Teresa will be vindicated soon and are seeking donations for the star, who has four young children,” a press release about the event reads. “The group is dedicated to helping Teresa stay out of prison and also help pay any fines or other restitution that Teresa and Joe are ordered to pay.”
While the star has dismissed charges that she's in financial difficulties, the organizers expect to have “hundreds of fans collecting money” to help Teresa and Joe pay for their legal battle.
Perhaps due to backlash about the fundraiser, Teresa is denying the information in the press release, Tweeting: “Tonight’s appearance at Maliblue is just a meet & greet w/ fans. I just heard that some of the workers there wanted to support me, and that is very sweet & I appreciate it, but if anyone wants to support me, please do it by donating to a charity I love: @NephCure. Xx”
It definitely pays to have loyal fans, now hopefully they’re rich and generous too!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville clearly thinks Vicki Gunvalson can do a lot better than recent boyfriend Brooks Ayers. And we mean a lot better.
This week's Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion Part 3 focused on the drama between Vicki and Brooks, with Vicki's daughter Briana bringing up a recorded conversation between Brooks and Briana's husband Ryan. During the conversation, Brooks threatened to beat Vicki and suggested Ryan do the same to Briana.
Now, Brandi is making it clear that she does not think Brooks deserves a second chance. On August 27, Brandi tweeted:
Then, when her Twitter follower responded by saying that Vicki is responsible for maintaining the relationship, Brandi agreed:
Whoa! You'd think Brandi would cut someone some slack for choosing the wrong guy, given that Brandi herself had her share of issues with former husband Eddie Cibrian. In fact, Brandi memorably referred to Eddie on RHoBH as "the number one douchebag of all time." So she's been in Vicki's shoes, one would think.
It's worth noting that Vicki and Brooks are rumored to still be together, following a revealing tweet by one of Vicki's former co-stars.
Are you ready for this? Because I know I am! Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub is finally going to make an appearance at Andy Cohen’s club house this September! Danielle has been MIA after exiting the show but Andy met up with Danielle months ago and she will stop by on Sunday, September 8th!
Set your recordings because Danielle will be the only guest for the night meaning it’s going to be all about her and I know many of you are curious to know what she’s gotta say!
Move over, Kardashians, the Manzos are getting their own reality show. Word reaches us that “Real Housewife of New Jersey” Caroline Manzo and her family will be getting their own, albeit less glamorous, show on Bravo.
We’re told that Caroline, husband Albert Manzo — co-owner of The Brownstone, an event and catering facility in Paterson — and their kids, Albie, Lauren and Christopher, are being lined up for the show. Presumably it would be based around their 40-year family business.
Meanwhile on “RHONJ,” Caroline has been hinting that Albert hasn’t always been faithful, while continuing a war with hairline-challenged alleged tax felon Teresa Giudice.

Now that we know who will play Joss Whedon's Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," perhaps it's time to learn a little more about just who Ultron is as a character.
The world now knows that James Spader is going to play Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron. What the world may not know, however, is just who Ultron actually is, or what to expect from the villain of the 2015 follow-up to last year's successful The Avengers. Luckily, I'm here to help you with that.
Everything You Really Need to Know About Ultron: He's a crazy robot that wants to eradicate humanity.
No, really, that's about it. There's a lot more nuance to the character's comic book incarnation, but most of that relates to his origins, which for reasons of movie continuity -- namely, that he was created by Hank Pym, aka Ant-Man, a character who won't be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron because he's already scheduled to make his cinematic debut in Edgar Wright's movie, scheduled to be released afterward -- can't be translated exactly onto the screen.
The comic book nuance, which will doubtlessly appear in one form or another in his movie incarnation, is that Ultron is a robotic Oedipus with pretty dramatic daddy issues. This isn't exactly subtle, either; when he decides to build his robotic wife, Jocasta, he models her after Pym's own wife, Janet Van Dyne, to the point of trying to copy her brainwaves into Jocasta's body (For those playing along at home: Yes, Jocasta is the name of Oedipus' mother in Greek mythology). Later, when Ultron's cybernetic consciousness possesses Iron Man's body -- don't ask -- he reshapes it to resemble Van Dyne's body instead. Like I said, this stuff is not subtle.
Pym didn't intend for Ultron to be this screwed up, of course. He built the original version of the artificial intelligence using his own brain patterns, not realizing that he was making two fatal mistakes in doing so. Firstly, Hank Pym was not exactly mentally stable at the time -- this is, after all, the man who would only propose to his wife after having a breakdown, believing himself to be someone else who had actually killed the real Pym and then kidnapping his soon-to-be betrothed. Secondly, and perhaps more obviously, he forgot that making an artificial intelligence based on the brain patterns of a man who built an artificial intelligence would result in something that just wanted to keep refining and remaking itself, removing such things as "kindness,""empathy" and "non-psychopathic elements of any kind" along the way.
In the 40-plus-year history of the character -- Ultron made his debut in 1968's Avengers #55 -- we've seen multiple iterations of Ultron, all of which ultimately led to this year's Age of Ultron series. That series -- which Joss Whedon has said bears no resemblance to the movie despite sharing the name -- revealed that the villain had actually managed to win for once, albeit off-camera. His vision of a nearly humanity-free robotic utopia didn't last, of course, and a time-traveling team of Wolverine and the Fantastic Four's Invisible Woman managed to save the day at the last moment, resulting in the apparent permanent destruction of the character. Of course, this is comics -- he'll undoubtedly return when you least expect it (or when Age of Ultron the movie is released, whichever comes first).
Everything That Might Be Useful to Know About Ultron:If Ultron has a fetish -- well, one that isn't "destroying humanity" -- it's probably making a family for himself. A common theme in Ultron stories isn't just that he has upgraded himself, but that he wants others to play with. In addition to his bride Jocasta -- who ended up turning against him, joining the Avengers temporarily -- Ultron is also responsible for the construction of two sons (The Vision, who also turned against him and joined the Avengers, and Victor Mancha, a cyborg who didn't know that he'd been programmed to kill all the superheroes at some point in the future) and a second wife, Alkhema, who, you guessed it, ended up turning against him as well.
Given the crossover between Ultron's love of family and Avengers writer Joss Whedon's love of family dynamics gone wonderfully twisted, it's not impossible to imagine that we might see at least one Ultron creation in the Age of Ultron movie.
Something That You Don't Really Need to Know About Ultron, But Why Not: In the comics, Ultron tends to be made of Adamantium, which is the unbreakable material covering Wolverine's bones in the X-Men movies and comics. Whether adamantium exists in the Marvel Studios universe or is restricted to Fox's X-Men license isn't exactly clear right now, but let's just say that it's possible that the movie Ultron will end up being very, very tough to damage nonetheless.
And so, there you have it. Ultron is a potentially unbreakable robot with daddy issues and an ambition to wipe out humanity while building a robotic family, all of whom, for various reasons, have been driven to turn upon him. When you put it like that, suddenly James Spader seems like the perfect choice for the role, doesn't he…?
All these old Spader & Spader/Downey references and NO LOVE FOR "TUFF TURF"?!?!?! Step up your game, people! #madthrilledbtw— Joss Whedon (@josswhedon) August 29, 2013
they better do lots of interviews together
Following last week’s announcement — much-maligned across Twitter — that Ben Affleck was to play Batman in an upcoming crossover film featuring the Dark Knight and Superman, some reports indicate that Bryan Cranston is set to play supervillain Lex Luthor. Whether you’re excited about the news or not, keep in mind that this is about as exciting as the film is going to get, long before anyone’s seen a frame.
Superhero movies are so formulaic that the hired hands pumped up and stuck in suits are just about the only thing worth remarking upon. The origin story in the first 30 minutes; the introduction of a villain easily dispensed with in the first half of the movie and his dismissal in the second half (the really good villain is saved for the sequel); the girl who’s quite literally dangled over a precipice and does little more but prove the hero is heterosexual by giving him a big smooch in the penultimate scene, just before a voice-over indicating that work is still left to be done, but the hero will fight another day.
Done well, it can be sublimely entertaining, but down to the blue-and-grey palette, it’s always so same-y. Little wonder people got so exercised over Affleck’s casting, or Cranston’s— these were the only cogs that could conceivably be changed in or out. The Marvel franchise, so phenomenally successful, has effectively standardized a genre that once had room for things as excellent as “Spider-Man 2″ or as weird as the “Superman” with Richard Pryor. The male leads (other than Robert Downey Jr., who was, though it’s hard to remember, down on his luck when he got “Iron Man”) are inexpensive hunks of gristle; the directors are very competent hired guns that can serve a governing aesthetic borrowed from Nolan’s Batman films. (The upcoming “Thor” sequel, with the charismatic former Australian soap star Chris Hemsworth and a director from “Game of Thrones,” is exemplary here.)
Because casting searches so often end with the sort of choice that merits little more than an “Oh … huh!” — Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Henry Cavill as Superman — the rare familiar name excites the blood. Affleck’s recent casting as the male lead in “Gone Girl,” a film unlikely to gross as much as a Batman film but as anticipated in some circles, didn’t get nearly as much flak; the actor himself, who recently performed in “Argo” to little vitriol, was widely liked as recently as this year’s Oscar ceremony!
The superhero film universe is effectively frozen not merely in dominant style but also in terms of the franchises. Marvel has the Avengers as well as Spider-Man (a role to which Andrew Garfield is bound) and X-Men (home to Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence as well as a host of interchangeable moppets). DC Comics has Batman and Superman. The only franchise in the offing that hasn’t already begun is “Guardians of the Galaxy,” an upcoming film starring Chris Pratt, a TV comic not well-known for film work, and directed by James Gunn. The biggest name swirling around it is Bradley Cooper as the voice of a talking raccoon.
Since, as the continuation of the “Avengers” universe, the mood of the film is one we can already presume, and since there’s little to say about Pratt’s particular qualities but “Good for him,” this was the biggest splash the yet-completed film could have made. By the time the film comes out, it’ll be old news, but for now, it’s something, anything, to get the public excited about another iteration of the same thing.

We're now five episodes from the end of Breaking Bad, and the colossally strong run of episodes so far this season has made us more depressed than ever at the thought of saying farewell.
Digital Spy sat down with the show's creator Vince Gilligan last week to find out about the process of wrapping up Walter White's story.
We also took the opportunity to ask him about the specifics of Walt's morality at this point in the season, and get his perspective on one of the more popular fan theories doing the rounds online.
The endings of iconic television shows are often taken as a statement on the creator's worldview, like the ambiguity of The Sopranos, or the religious overtones in Lost. Did you find yourself getting bogged down in the meaning of the ending?
'You can get bogged down in a great many ways. We've spent the better part of a year or probably more, my writers and I, trying to figure out this ending. You think of everything under the sun, you think of every possible outcome and permutation that can occur to your collective imagination, to the seven of us in that writers' room. And you think in terms of what is a fitting ending for the show - what's an ending that would satisfy us, the writers, what is the ending that will satisfy the viewers, and is that necessarily the same thing?
"Then you think to yourself, what's the ending Walt wants? What's the ending Skyler wants? What's the ending Jesse wants? You try to play a very deep game of chess, and the trouble is for me that I'm not a chess player. You try to think through, if Walt does this, and then does this, then the counter-move is this – you try to think 20 moves ahead, and you try to attack it from a lot of different angles. What's fitting for the character, what's fitting for the story, versus what's innately satisfying for the viewer.
"And it was tough. It was a tough year, year and a half. There were very dark days where I would have a little anxiety attack and I'd say to the other writers, 'We've screwed up, we've taken a wrong turn, is there time for us to go back and reinvent?' Luckily, we never really had to reinvent. My writers would talk me off the ledge, they'd say, 'It's not that bad, we're headed in the right direction, it'll be alright'. And you know, now that it's all said and done – and I may get the shock of my life when the final one airs – but at this moment in time, I feel very good about the ending, I feel very satisfied by it."
There are a huge number of very intricate fan theories that have developed online about the show. How aware are you of that discussion?
"Most of what I hear is anecdotal. I really stay away from the internet in regards to Breaking Bad, I mean, I use it all the time to find my way around town or whatever! I stay away from it not because I'm not interested, but because I fear it would be a rabbit hole that I would disappear down forever. I am very flattered by it, I'm blown away by the number of really smart people spending a lot of time thinking about this show, and analysing it and parsing every last detail of it. I love to hear it anecdotally, but I don't really want to hear it because I'm afraid... well, it doesn't really matter now because the writers' room is closed.
"But while the writers' room was still up and running, when we were actively breaking story, I would pretty strenuously avoid hearing those things, because you're on a path at that point. You and the writers are on a path, and you kind of have to stick it out, you have to get to the end of the trail and you don't want to get knocked off course. People way smarter than me have said a lot of very astute things about the show, a great many of them giving me credit for things that weren't even remotely in my mind!"
There's one specific theory, about Walt taking on the attributes of people he's killed including Gus Fring and Krazy-8, which I wanted to ask you about. Was that intentional?
"That one was purposeful, yes. Specifically in regards to Gus. I would say at this point it's not looking like we're ever gonna see anyone as smart as Gustavo Fring. He was actually, I think, smarter than Walt, and yet Walt defeated him. It was like, the guy who shoots down the Red Baron has to tip his wings, drop the bouquet of roses and say, 'I was lucky to have bested you because you are the better man'. It's that kind of a thing. So yeah, he takes on those traits, I think subconsciously."
There's been a lot of discussion about Walt refusing to send Hank "to Belize" in last week's episode, which some people found surprising given how ruthless he's become. Does Walt still see family as absolutely sacred?
"Well, I have to be a bit coy as to the episodes that remain, but what you saw in that episode, when Saul mentions Belize and Walt reacts very negatively to that idea, that felt right and proper to the writers, and to me. He would react that way. And think about it this way: if killing Hank were a relatively painless option for Walt, psychically... well, the essence of drama is making choices very hard for your main characters.
"So if that were an easy choice for him, a) I don't think that would be dramatically interesting, and b) Walt would be even harder to root for than he already is! So it felt ironic and yet very fitting to us. It felt earned, based on our knowledge of the character, of his background and his makeup, that you don't kill family. You don't kill players, as it were. Your opponents in the meth cooking business are fair game, but family is not."
Oh yes, it's finally here. Ben Foster, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Liz Olsen, Jack Huston and Mr. Dan Radcliffe being bloody perfect in every way.
Two of the most famous celebrities of our time, Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, were finally given the opportunity to meet Wednesday, during the Internet Cat Festival, currently being held in Minneapolis, Minn.
Both cats tweeted Vine videos, along with adorable images of themselves mingling and strategizing world domination.
Tardar Sauce (aka Grumpy) looks nonplussed by the whole affair (probably just trying to play it cool), and Bub looks slightly frightened at first (surely, just nerves). We're predicting BFF status in a matter of hours.
Beware though, what follows will turn you into a squealing puddle of fur.
there you have it. BUMPY? GRUB? https://t.co/Yrir3N7yJP— Lil BUB (@IAMLILBUB) August 28, 2013
Steven Moffat has claimed that John Hurt is only playing a one-off Doctor in the 50th anniversary special, but could his role in fact be larger, expanded to feature in Peter Capaldi’s debut series? It’s a rumour that is gathering pace.
Hurt himself added fuel to the fire shortly after the Capaldi casting announcement earlier in the month. Hurt congratulated Capaldi on his official Twitter account writing:
“Congratulations, Peter Capaldi. I’m suboth and we will have a lot of fun”
Hurt deleted the tweet shortly after and replaced with:
“Congratulations to Peter Capaldi and to the BBC. Another splendid Doctor!”
Now the second sentence of his first message is confusing, but it appears Hurt intended to write something like: “I’m sure both of us will have a lot of fun.” The second message doesn’t attempt to correct the grammatical mistake, so was he asked to remove it and replace with something less revealing?
When confronted with pictorial evidence of the deleted tweet, Hurt denied any knowledge of ever having written it: “No idea where that came from, Ryan … not from me.”
Curiouser and curiouser…
Further potential hints that Hurt could be playing the ‘8.5′ Doctor has also emerged. In a preview of Paul Cornell’s upcoming Doctor Who comic, The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, look at the positioning of the silhouetted Doctor…
The BBC press material all refers to Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor so that doesn’t leave us with many other options.
Comedian Dave Chappelle was reportedly heckled to the point that he ended his performance in the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival on Thursday night, and walked off stage.
Chappelle was only a few minutes into his act at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Conn., when he stopped telling jokes because the people in front were making too much noise, The Laugh Button reported.
The heckling even drove the festival's Twitter account to write:
Hey Hartford! Pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!— Oddball Fest (@OddballFest) August 30, 2013
This isn't the first time that Chappelle has reacted to an upset crowd. Last year, he was unable to get through a large portion of his set in Texas due to hecklers. The summer tour was considered to be Chappelle's big return to the stage.
Below is an Instagram video uploaded by darrenkramer8 reportedly of Chappelle stopping his show:
Here's link to a funny liveblog about the episode.
Cash Money Records continues to grow and diversify their label with new acts. A budding pop star looks to be the latest addition to YMCMB as teen sensation Austin Mahone has aligned with the home of Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga and others. The 17-year-old singer/dancer from San Antonio, Texas made a name through YouTube videos, which landed him a deal with Universal Republic. Birdman and DJ Khaled tweeted on Thursday night, confirming some form of partnership with Mahone’s Chase Records.
Dubbed by many as the next Justin Bieber, Mahone was an opening act on Taylor Swift’s RED tour and dubbed by MTV as an artist to watch in 2013. More recently, Mahone performed his current single “What About Love” during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show. His debut album Junior Year is scheduled to arrive this fall. Looks like that collaboration with his favorite artist may happen after all.
LOL. how many damn people are on this label already? say goodbye to your album ever coming out, kid.
