Below, catch an exclusive extended preview of the upcoming 10 chapters of R. Kelly‘s “Trapped in the Closet” saga (set to hit DVD on Aug. 21). You may have seen the recap of the first 12 chapters (dubbed “Chapter 12.5″) that hit the Net a few weeks ago — that’s in the video below, but so are first-looks at Chapters 13, 18 and 21. Catch R. Kelly in old-man drag in the character of Randolph — yes, R&B fans, there is a Santa Claus. See our hero lead a gospel revival (bonus points: the “Closet” melodic template gets a choir-led upgrade!). Watch a Sopranos-inspired mob showdown.
It only gets nuttier. The clip below is full of choice dialogue — I can’t decide which is the better insult: “I hope a pigeon fly by here and s*** on your face,” or calling someone, “LL Fool J.” At least there’s no longer a question about R. Kelly’s intent: what’s below is so ridiculous that he’s clearly in on the joke. I mean, he has to be, right? Right?!?!

Every week we round up selections from the funniest, most obscene and brutal film criticism out there so that you don’t waste your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: Rush Hour 3 is tired, irritating, unnecessary and cruel. It’s also causing critics to have meltdowns. Now that’s the mark of a bad movie. See below.
“In Rush Hour 3, the latest installment in the popular action-comedy franchise, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker return as mismatched cops who find themselves . . . . Honestly, do you really care?” — Newsweek
“So lackluster that it’s not even worth searching out when it plays on television. The Rush Hour experience, which never attained anything resembling full speed, has come to a crashing halt.” — Reelviews
For a good part of last month, the Hollywood Hills were alive with the sound of…shrieking. And laughing. And crying. Sometimes one after another in an emotional avalanche. It could only mean one thing: New York was in town.
Now that the filming of I Love New York 2 has wrapped, we can give you this exclusive first look at the reality TV diva and her new pad. You can see that things are a little different this time around – for one thing, the guys are divided up and put into rooms based on how they were cast (there’s a regular casting bedroom, an Internet-choice room and a “Mama’s Boys” room for the boys Sister Patterson selected). For another thing: there’s a gazebo. For yet another thing: New York’s got a new weave! That’s even better than installing a Jacuzzi!
When I visited the set toward the end of filming, I watched New York on a double date (if you can call it that) out in her pool. Her temper flared, her tears poured, her cackling reached unthinkable decibels. Best of all: she asked on more than one occasion if her eyelashes were still on. New York in more false-eyelash drama? It’s good to be home.
Look out: I Love New York 2 premieres this fall.
Get Ready for Flavor of Flav 3!

The Return of New York!
Surely Amy Winehouse knew that if she penned a hit song about not going to rehab, she’d end up there eventually, right? It’s almost too easy. British gossip rags are reporting that after a stint at a London hospital on Wednesday for “exhaustion,” Winehouse checked herself into The Priory rehab center on Thursday, and is resting in a private wing. This comes after an alleged 3-day drug binge, in which a “friend” reveals that, “She was downing coke, pills and ketamine, vodka and Jack Daniel’s. Even Amy says she will be dead within one year.”
Or not, we hope. Let’s hope she gets rid of her demons in rehab. Then she can move on to dumping her big-mouthed friends. [DListed, The Sun, The Mirror. Image: Getty]
I Hate My 30s went all magical last night, as Corey, the boss’ assistant and resident cubicle nerd, professed his love for the Wizard Larry series of books. When he meets the books’ author, Carrington Witherspoon, she tells him that he resembles Acrimonious Immpe, Wizard Larry’s beloved chemistry professor. In the meantime, however, Corey’s just been served with divorce papers by his wife and has moved into his parents’ house. So he snaps and shows up to work in an Acrimonious Immpe costume, thinking that he’s a fictional character. (Any mockery of adults who read Harry Potter is not incidental.) Meanwhile, Travis, the office rocker, is having trouble identifying with his son Bickle. (Should he rent Taxi Driver? Of course!) But by reading Wizard Larry books to him, Travis begins to develop a relationship with his kid — and learns a thing or two that helps Corey out as well. We caught up with Corey and Travis. Interviews continue below. Read more…
