Quotables: What Would Deb Do If She Found Out About Dexter?

“Would I be okay with it if I found out Dexter was a serial killer? I don’t know. I’m glad it’s not up to me. I feel that that decision is in the writers’ capable hands and they will justify it, and it will be the hardest thing I’ve ever played but I look forward to doing it. Is there room for it? Certainly. My instinct today is she would put her handcuffs on him. But it changes from day to day.”

- Jennifer Carpenter discusses her character’s feelings on her beautiful serial killer of a brother.

I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely LOVE Dexter. I would say that I live for it for about 12 weeks every fall, but really I just ripped through the entire series last winter at an alarming pace.  Like I remember on New Year’s Day this year I laid in bed with my best friend and watched the last eight or nine episodes of season five – the one with Julia Stiles, the saucy minx – and that’s how I knew this year was going to be a good one.

What do you think would happen if Deb found out Dexter’s secret (and don’t try and pop in with spoilers from the books, it’s a little different)? Regardless, can you imagine the tension that’s almost guaranteed to flood the sixth season?  Do you guys care about Dexter at all?  We have a lot to talk about here, friends.

Selena Gomez Is OK, I Guess

Yesterday, we heard that Selena Gomez was taken to the hospital and stayed overnight for testing.  There was no word on what exactly was wrong with her, and there’s still no word, but it looks like she’s going to be all right:

A source tells E! News that Selena Gomez is “on the mend” and she is going to be “OK.”


And that’s not all…

After cancelling her performance at the Santa Monica Place mall this afternoon, we find out that it has been rescheduled for Monday afternoon.

That’s all we get.  That, and Selena’s perfect boyfriend, Justin Bieber, skipped a hockey game to go see her.  I mean, it’s not like we’re entitled to know what exactly is going on in any celebrity’s personal life, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that I have a lot of curiosity in my soul, and some of you suggested she could be pregnant with a Bieber baby, and if that’s the case, then I’m sorry, but I need to know right this very minute.

Happy Birthday, Hugh Laurie!

In case you didn’t know, some seriously awesome people were born in the month of June.  I was born in June.  Sarah was born in June (her birthday’s on Monday, you guys, don’t forget). Jason Isaacs was born in June.  And if all of those awesome people who celebrate birthdays this month isn’t enough to convince you of June’s glory, let me just tell you that the divine Hugh Laurie was also born in this month – on this very day, in fact!

When we celebrate birthdays here, I usually like to include a photo gallery so we can all look back and smile.  I would do that with Hugh here, but I feel like he has a special brand of beautiful that doesn’t translate incredibly well though photographs.  And that’s why I’m going to show you some of my favorite clips so you can see his magic in action.  Enjoy!
