Brody Jenner’s Video Diaries

I have no idea how I missed this, and special thanks to Beet reader Mike for pointing me in the right direction. As part of their “Win a Date with Brody Jenner” contest, Brody has been maintaining “video diaries” for Us Weekly (or, more accurately, someone at Us sat down with him for a 5-minute interview and they cut it up into like 20 “diary” entries). I’ve embedded some of them here. You can view them all here. You can also check out the videos of the 12 finalists in the contest here.

Drew Barrymore To Do CoverGirl Campaign

This is Drew’s first major beauty campaign. According to CoverGirl brass, “We partnered with Drew because she emulates the iconic image of CoverGirl with her fresh, natural beauty and energetic yet authentic spirit.” Drew is an especially appropriate icon because she smokes weed, and, if Kirsten Dunst has taught us anything, it’s that weed is for winners.

Also: yellow is totally the new black.

Emme the Fat Model!!! There You Are!!!

Remember this chick? She was the first (and only?) plus-size model to make it big. She had her own show on E!, I think. I just remember getting drunk a lot with my college boyfriend and watching her on TV, and we thought she was just the funniest thing ever. Like, “Hi, I’m Emme. The fat model.” That was her whole gig. “I’d probably be hot if I were thinner, but you’ll never know! Because I’m Emme, the fat model.” Oh, man. I wondered what happened to her. She showed up at the Brick Awards at the Nokia Theater in NYC last night. I had to post the pictures.

I Will Be Watching The Real World Again

Damn you, MTV!!! DAMN YOU TO HELL!!!

Just when I thought I’d finally outgrown The Real World, so proud of my newfound maturity and adulthood and ability to casually bypass reality shows about teenage alcoholics and the problems they consistently fail to attribute to their alcoholism and all the sex they have with each other in hot tubs and the forks they throw at one another and …

Oh, damn you, MTV.

They’re reuniting the cast of The Real World: Las Vegas.

Yes, that’s right. Alton. Irulan. Steven. Trishelle. Brynn. Arissa. Frank. Back together. Back in Vegas. They’re even storing them in the same Palms penthouse they had before (remember this is the crew that put The Palms on the map — no one had even heard of Ghostbar before it became their hangout). Filming begins this month, five years after season twelve of the series last filmed. And, as a friend reminds me, there is now a Playboy club in the Palms, so that opens up a whole new world of opportunity for this crew.

This is genius, MTV. Really, truly genius. Way to reel back in all us late-twenty-somethings who were finally beginning to wriggle free of the grasp you’ve had on us since before puberty. You win, MTV. Uncle. I will watch. I will make it my life’s work to watch. I haven’t got a choice. Hell, I’ll probably end up liveblogging the episodes. And I will love every minute of it. Sigh.

LC Dishes on the Sex Tape

Well, not dishes, exactly, but certainly laments.

“My friend started reading the item to me, and I literally could not breathe,” she says. “I thought she was joking when she started telling me.”

“Honestly, they videotape my life five days out of the week. I don’t need additional footage, you know?” she says, when asked if she really did make the tape.

Lauren claims that someone planted the rumor specifically to hurt her, and people are starting to look at Heidi and Spencer as the front-runners. Lauren claims Heidi hasn’t even called her. “This has literally been, like, the worst week ever, and someone who’s supposedly my friend didn’t even call or text me.”

Heidi and Spencer both deny planting the rumor.

Is The Hills even filming right now? I think they’re on hiatus, which is just so sad, because it would be awesome to have all this caught on tape. Killer ratings. I hope MTV got a camera crew in there as soon as this news broke. I mean, there’s a big part of me that feels really horrible for Lauren in all this, because I think she’s probably a genuinely good kid who got thrown into a crappy situation, but then the other side of me — the one that started a gossip blog in the first place — gets all excited and can’t wait to watch this whole thing play out.
