VH1’s spoof show features Lance Krall as a dimwitted radio host who has some infuriating opinions and isn’t shy about expressing them. He also has a weekly blog here where he discusses his innermost thoughts. In this episode, Lance discovers a morphing tool on his friend’s computer, and decides to mock George Clooney, Vincent D’Onofrio and Adam Goldberg. His impressions? Surprisingly on-point.
Inna got the boot last episode. Did you forecast her fall?
Fallen but not forgotten
The lady with a large butt, Ms. Kim Kardashian, has revealed that she’s desperate to give bumbling Britney Spears a makeover. “I would love, love, love to give Britney Spears a makeover,” Kim said. “I think everyone wants to give her a makeover. But I think that she is so cute and sweet and has a great style. But it’s all fallen apart and it’s a mess now. I would love to bring her back to where she used to be.”
Sure, we all want to redo Brit’s look, but what makes Kim think she’s qualified to do so? Well apparently our dark-haired diva is a STYLIST. Who knew? We thought she just sat around all day and got paid. Kim divulged her career secret as a guest on The View, after Barbara Walters bluntly asked her why she was famous and what exactly she does. Her answer – which was actually quite articulate – is above. We know what Kim wants to do, but do you think Brit would look hotter with long dark hair, loads of makeup, and decked out in an ultra tight dress?
We all know lawyers are evil, right? If you’re having doubts, jump into this show, one of the most gripping cat ‘n’ mouse stories to come along in awhile. It positions Glenn Close as a she-devil attorney whose elaborate strategies never fail to put a mind-f*ck on her prey. Friend, foe – the relationships between the show’s principals are always in flux, and as Close manipulates a young apprentice to capture the Ted Danson‘s haughty Enron-esque CEO, the shifting set of morals beguiles as much as the who-done-it storyline. Factor in some intricate time-jumping tricks – this thing is one twisted labyrinth – and you’ve got one of TV’s better dalliances.
EXTRAS: THE COMPLETE SERIES
Ricky Gervais knows exactly when to pull the plug on a project, and the two short seasons of The Office and Extras gave both shows extra resonance. Jumping the shark is never an option. Because Extras’ initial run seemed fleeting, this box is a great way to revel in the nuanced quips that mark the great parade of indignities suffered by the star’s struggling actor, Andy Milman. From being fodder for David Bowie’s impromptu barbs to being irritated by a horny Daniel Radcliffe, Gervais’ skewering of the rich and famous is a modern classic. And of course Andy’s got more than a little pompous ass in him, himself. Extra points for featuring one of the tube’s ultimate stooges, Stephen Merchant (who helps Gervais script the hilarious shows).
Benji and Paris: Adventures in Horrible Fashion
Paris Hilton and Benji Madden fugged it up on the streets of LA in two serious fashion don’ts. There’s nothing cuter than a couple that embraces bad outfits together! [X17]
Britney Beloved on “How I Met Your Mother” Set
The entire cast of the ABC show is in awe of their troubled guest star, and only had wonderful things to say about Brit. Maybe she can make some real friends, for once! [Us]

No one brought to the stand has been able to pin last summer’s shooting on the rapper. Will she walk? [NYP]
“I was reminded again how incredibly brave and open those guys were. They just throw themselves into stuff,” Dr. Drew told me a few days after the taping Celebrity Rehab reunion late last month. Not that I needed reminding. I hung around backstage that day from early afternoon through the five-hour (!) finale shoot, and witnessed a group of people to whom sharing themselves comes as easy as breathing. Just try to get them to hold back!
Been craving your fix of celebrities rolling in mud and running up balance beams all in the name of losing weight and winning $100 grand? Good news – Celebrity Fit Club is back! Even better – the show – which sticks the stars in boot camp – is filling, delicious and calorie free! Sounds tasty, right?
Brit couldn’t pull it together to shoot a video for “Break the Ice,” so instead she’s grabbed a cartoon, laid the track over it, and has released it as the official video. Back when Korn dropped their “Freak on a Leash” clip — almost 10 years ago — the whole animated idea was fresh and hip. Britney’s take is just stale, and it’s not just her fault! The girl can barely leave her house, much less shoot something for a couple of days. But doesn’t she pay someone, somewhere, to make these decisions for her? Oh — maybe that’s what Sam Lutfi was for. Oh well. Enjoy Britney — cartoon weave and all — above.

While that headline might be another example of our penchant for hyperbole, the development geniuses at the CW have made us very happy today, announcing that they’re in the early stages of bringing back . . . wait for it . . . Beverly Hills 90210. They’ve already brought us the most entertaining teen soap ever in Gossip Girl (sorry, O.C.), which not only has introduced a whole generation of Teen Vogue readers to young women other than Rihanna and Lauren Conrad, but has also piqued interest coast-to-coast in the daily doings of Manhattan’s super-wealthy teens. Apparently they’re planning the same sort of take-over in L.A. No word as yet what, exactly, the new 90210 will entail, or whether any of the original cast members will be on the show, but it’s sure to be entertaining. We’d really like to see Brandon and Brenda Walsh, Dylan McKay, Kelly Taylor, Donna Martin and David Silver (and, sigh, Andrea Zuckerman, we guess) as they are now, in their mid 30s, struggling with early onset midlife crises, but maybe that’s just us. As soon as we know more, we’ll let you know.
A bunch o’ blogs freaked recently after pics of Nicky Hilton revealed that the socialite’s bod is looking a little bony these days, but the starlet is not having the rumors. Nicky spoke out about the hoopla at her recent fashion show, stating, “There’s no truth to any starvation, eating disorders, rumors. I think the press has been printing a lot of pictures of me from unflattering angles.”Peep the two pics of Nick above and decide for yourself. Even if she has gotten skinnier, the girl’s always been long and ultra-lean. Kinda makes you wonder how these girls get so gaunt, huh? [People]
