Got a Tip? Help us Beet Off!

10God Save Us All

Vh1 has combined the casts of Rock of Love, I Love New York and Flavor of Love into one show brilliantly titled I Love Money. They’ll compete for $250,000.

It’s like RR/RW Challenge, except with the people who are actually way, way trashier.

I mean, I’m not gonna watch it, but I’m sure there’ll be some fun clips coming through my inbox to run.

9Jenna Hager Says Ellen Can Use the Bush Family Ranch for Her Wedding

I love that Ellen went there.

While interviewing the Bush daughter and her mother, First Lady Laura Bush, for her television show, Ellen brought up the topic of Jenna’s recent nuptials. (Side note: for reasons I don’t understand, I have used the word “nuptials” more often in the past two weeks than in all the rest of my life combined.)

Observes DeGeneres: “So, the ranch was a great place to get married – it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures or bother you, really.”

“Yeah,” concurs Hager, “that was really nice” – which prompts DeGeneres to ask, “So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?”

“Sure,” replies an obliging Hager.

“Okay, great,” says DeGeneres.



Man, I can’t imagine Jenna wasn’t prepped for a question like that.

The show airs next Wednesday.

53Nobody’s Watching Grey’s Anatomy Anymore

Hey, remember Grey’s Anatomy? That show with the doctors and Patrick Dempsey and that one anorexic chick who looks about 30 years to old to be an intern? I guess it’s still on TV, it’s just that nobody’s watching it.

Grey’s audience was down 23% this year, and it dropped out of the top 10. The season finale last week averaged 14.8 million viewers, an all-time low for the series. Granted, these are still HUGE numbers (for comparison, Gossip Girl only averages 2.2 million viewers) , but they’re nothing compared to where the show used to be.

Why did you guys stop watching Grey’s?

23Things I Am Embarrassed to Admit I Enjoy

The smart marketing folks over at New Line have created a little application that allows you to “hack” into Carrie Bradshaw’s MacBook and snoop around.

It’s insanely fun. At least, it is for me, because I love the rush that comes with looking at something I’m not supposed to be looking at. Even when that something belongs to a fictional character and is a part of a worldwide marketing effort. I’m so easy to brainwash.

But here’s where it gets really cool — it’s actually a game! The characters IM you, and you chat with them for a bit, and then they ask you a question, and you have to snoop around Carrie’s computer to find the answer!! If you get all four questions right, you get access to Carrie’s hard drive, which has additional teaser clips and cool little notes. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, but then I kicked some ass.

I know, I know. I’m way too old to think this is cool. But I think it’s cool. So there.

37Lil’ Bow Wow Scores Role on Entourage

How cute!

I’m sorry, but everything Bow Wow does is cute to me. He will eternally be 10 years old in my mind. Like if he ever gets a DUI I’ll probably be like “Lil’ Bow Wow thought he could drive drunk! Isn’t that just adorable?!”

Anyway, Bow Wow scored a recurring role on season five of Entourage, which, I’m pretty sure, is scheduled to air sometime in 2016. He’ll be playing a stand-up comic who E takes on as a client.

In fact, it seems like Bow Wow is going to be focusing more on acting all-around.

“After 16 years in the music industry and six successful albums, I’ve decided to shift my energy to something else I’m passionate about, acting,” he said. “I’m going to try to be the next Will Smith.”

Sixteen years in the music industry! He’s 21! Craziness.

9Will Someone Please Water the Models?

CariDee English is the latest in an unending string of starlets to be taken to the hospital for “dehydration.”

Just hours after posing for this photo, the ANTM winner was taken by ambulance from Shrine, the new club at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut, to the hospital.

“CariDee did go to the hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning to be treated for dehydration,” her rep confirms. “She called to be taken to the hospital. She is fine and back to work in Los Angeles.”

Ugh. She called to be taken to the hospital? She totally freaked out and thought she was overdosing.

CariDee recently split from her longtime, non-famous boyfriend, and has since been linked to Tyson Beckford.
