That tossled hair, the crystal blue eyes, those reportedly fake eye lashes. Ah swooon….as if all that weren’t enough, High School Musical Heartthrob Zac Efron is now dishing on his favorite types of kisses! Efron spoke with J-14 magazine, and gave its pre-teen readers a lesson making-out. “Be respectful of the other person and don’t just get on in there and grope all over the place.” Apparently, Zac’s favorite lip locks occur when he’s “taken it nice and slow.”
Zac’s least-favorite kisses? “When girls rotate their tongues around your mouth like a washing machine, that’s not a good idea.” Also: “Go easy and take your time. Don’t try to swallow the person by opening your mouth so wide!” Zac declined to comment on whether Lil Wayne was gentle, and how girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens rates.

Tara Reid, that sexy sack of plastic and peroxide, is all up in arms about accusations that she is anorexic. Speaking recently to OK! Magazine, she said: “I’m not too thin. I go up 10 pounds, I go down 10 pounds. I was thin for a movie that I just finished [the upcoming horror film Vipers]. Now they’re going to see me and say I’m too fat because I’ve gained 10 pounds… I can’t win!”
Er, we’re still going to say you’re too thin. But that’s not what we’re most concerned about here, amazingly enough. What traumatized us more than Tara’s gaunt look, is her recent choice of outfits. Her cheesy throwbacks to 2002 aren’t helping her look. Trucker hat? Tattoo-themed pieces? Belly jewels? We know her straight-to-DVD salary can’t afford her a stylist, but how about just a friend who tells her what NOT to wear. Or at least a mirror.

Pretty much everything that comes out of Tyra’s mouth is comedic genius. She takes herself – and everything she does – so seriously, that it only accentuates the campiness of her endeavors. So it’s hard for us to feel any sympathy when she complains about the hollowness of her personal life. Tyra is the new cover girl of this month’s Essence, and she dramatically unleashes her woes to the mag in her interview. “I’d go to work [on 'The Tyra Banks Show'], and women would be crying in my arms,” she reveals. “But then I’d go home and put my key in my door and … nothing. No friends, no husband, no children. I feel so full when I’m at work but so empty when I come home.”
That’s funny, because when we come home we feel totally full after we leap into Tyra’s virtual arms and watch her show on our TiVo. We’d suggest that she spend less time worry about our vaginas and more time fretting over hers, but then we’d be lost without her. It’s a vicious cycle.
Everyone’s talking about The Wire this week. The first episode of the final season premiered last Sunday, and the battles of Baltimore (corners, schools, newsrooms) are on lots of tongues. If you’re not down with the HBO gem, there are lots of ways to ramp up. Here’s a four-minute distillation of a four previous seasons. Here’s a way to hear the new CD compilation that corrals the music and dialogue. Here’s a list of Marlo Stanfield‘s favorite tunes. If you want to read what’s on creator/producer David Simon‘s mind, this should do.
Who’s your favorite character?
Well, we feel stupid. Last night we feel asleep giddy with the thought of running into Britney at our local Starbucks here in the Big Apple. Brit leaked the news that she was heading here to NYC, when she really hopped a flight – with paparazzi plaything Adnan Ghalib – to Mexico. Wow, punked by Britney! If only she applied those smarts to getting her life in order, she’d probably be doing okay. But you know – priorities! Apparently Brit was spotted buying fake Gucci bags and checked into a hotel, only to check out later that night, of course. Now, no one has any idea where the pair is. How about rehab?
Nice to know that the rump we loved in 2007 is the rump we’re going to love in 2008. The Kardashians show is off the air right now, but we plan to deliver as much KK buttosity as possible. In these ever-loving shots, Lady Kim is at some Slim Fast festival in LaLa Land. Maybe K sip the stuff, but we know that rear will always be round.

Season 7 of American Idol premieres next Wednesday and Thursday on Fox, but evidence in the press suggests that contestants might not have as long a shelf-life as Kelly Clarkson’s career would have you believe. Case in point? Katharine McPhee has split from RCA records, joining her fellow castmates Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard in being without label representation. Wikipedia notes that there are rumors of her courting another major label (or vice-versa), but there’s no word on any of that yet. Still, she’s in markedly better shape than down-and-out former Idol contestant Jessica Sierra, who’s on VH1′s new show, premiering tonight, Celebrity Rehab. Couple all that with Sanjaya exhaustion, and we’re beginning to wonder: Has the Idol phenomenon lost its luster? Maybe it’s just us, but we’re kind of wishing pop music would go back to its much less democratic state, with nepotism and Berry Gordy in charge.
