Boys to Men – Mission: Manband Episode 4 Recap

by

Mission: Man Band
Last night’s Man Band was a cruel exercise in humiliation. When Miss Kate forced the guys to perform at the Orlando Magic half-time show against their will, that was one thing. Everyone was expecting to be booed. And booed they were. But when Miss Kate pointlessly, antagonistically made them listen to radio jocks tear their performance to shreds the following morning, that was something else. And when she made them watch a tape of the show, that was the camel that broke the straw’s back. Read more…

Sure, he might rollerblade around the pool, get overly excited about pantry sizes and seem kind of like maybe girls aren’t his thing, but Joe W. has fully absorbed the teachings of Mystery and integrated them into his lifestyle. He was the only individual to come near to kissing someone during Episode 4’s bar challenge (Kosmo doesn’t count), and he’s by far the dreamiest nerd in the herd, which makes him our Pick Up Artist of the Week.

DMX Accused of Abusing Pit Bulls

by

dmx.jpgCould animal abuse be the new DUI for celebs? It’s completely horrible and wrong, yet more people seem to be doing it. DMX is the latest star to possibly get nailed for mistreating pit bulls, after 12 pups were removed from his Arizona home in poor condition. Police also removed a large number of weapons from his crib, and a search of his backyard turned up the charred remains of at least one dog.

The rapper’s attorney defended DMX, stating that “He loves and lives for his animals.” But this is not the first time her client’s name has been associated with abusing dogs. In 2002 the Ruff Ryder pleaded guilty to charges of animal cruelty after a 1998 raid of his house turned up thirteen neglected pit bulls. Seeing as this case comes on the same day as football star Michael Vick’s guilty plea in the dogfighting case against him, it kinda makes you wonder – when did hurting animals become the cool thing for these stars to do?

Miss Teen South Carolina is Pretty and Dumb

by

Please PLEASE watch the above video of Miss South Carolina competing in the Questions portions of the Miss Teen USA pageant on Friday night. Her stupidity is pure genius. Seriously. Mario Lopez is a true U.S. American hero for not laughing in this girl’s face. You can chalk some things up to nerves, but not this. The question would have been better answered if she had just held the mic up to her brain so the audience could hear the sound of tumble weed blowing through her head. [DListed]

We know she’s not the most perfect mom, but is feeding your kids soda and Cheetos illegal? A custody hearing about the kids was held this morning between Britney and Kevin’s lawyers, as well as a lawyer for the Los Angeles County counsel. TMZ also reports that, “We do not know the specifics of the allegations but we’re told the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is conducting an active investigation.”

Oh man. No wonder poor Brit wants to haul her ass to London. Though these pics of Britney smoking around her kids sure ain’t helping her win any Mom of the Year Awards. [TMZ. Image: Getty]

Vick Pleads Guilty, Condemns Dogfighting

by

SickMichael Vick‘s star continued it’s crash course today, as the Atlanta Falcons quarterback officially plead guilty to the federal dogfighting charges against him. Vick will be sentenced on December 10th and could face up to five years in prison. After the hearing he apologized to his teammates, coaches, and the Commissioner of the NFL, took “full responsibility” for his actions, and claimed to have found religion as a result of the dog drama. He also said, “Dogfighting is a terrible thing. I reject it. I totally ask for forgiveness and understanding as I move forward to better Michael Vick the person, not the football player.”

Better late than never, right?

by

owenwilson.jpgActor and notorious ladies man Owen Wilson was hospitalized in Los Angeles early yesterday afternoon, and word on the information highway is that the actor was admitted after possibly attempting suicide. Reports allege that Kate Hudson‘s former flame slit his left wrist and ingested numerous “unidentified pills.” His family, including brother Luke Wilson, were spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday night, where the actor is reportedly being treated.

“I respectfully ask that the media allow me to receive care and heal in private during this difficult time.”

Rock on TV – The Shortlist

by

lohan.jpgJonesing for music on your television set? Don’t know what to watch? Love to see your favorite musicians tied up in absurd plots? Well, then, you’ve come to the right place, rockers! Check out our shortlist below. For more extensive listings, read VH1’s Rock on TV schedule daily.

A Prairie Home Companion, Monday, 9:30 AM (EST), HBOZ: We know, we know. You haven’t gotten quite enough of Lindsay Lohan lately, what with her recent trip to rehab. A thoroughly peroxided Lohan plays the suicide-obsessed daughter of Meryl Streep in the cinematic dramatization of the beloved NPR radio show.

The Gilmore Girls, “Girls In Bikinis, Boys Doin’ the Twist” Monday, 5PM (EST), FAM: Looked to as the death knell of indie culture, this was the moment the Shins came out of their (possibly scoliosis afflicted) shell and rocked this WB original series’ spring break episode. The performance by beloved, bespectacled indie outfit was more revolutionary than the Flaming Lips playing the Peach Pit on 90210. See also: Garden State.
