30 Rock’s Kenneth: Charm School Fiend

by

30 Rock - Jack McBrayer Jack McBrayer has just returned New York after spending a chunk of time in Hawaii, working on Judd Apatow’s forthcoming Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He says it was the best gig ever. “I’ll tell you what. I was up at 9, and by 10 I was on the beach with a Corona Light in my hand. It was like a month-long Corona commercial.”

If you can’t picture 30 Rock’s naïve page Kenneth with a beer, you’ve tacitly given McBrayer a compliment. Bobbing and weaving with Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan on the NBC comedy, the Georgia native brings a blend of innocence and jutzpah to his role of bumpkin-in-the-big-city. Along with other titles 30 Rock’s first season is now out on DVD. We spoke with McBrayer about Kenneth and the rest of the cast.

VH1: Tracy Morgan is going to host VH1’s upcoming Hip Hop Honors show. What should we expect?

JM: Oh my god. You’ve seen the episode of 30 Rock where he has to host “The Source Awards,” right? He’s wild as usual. I love working with him. It’s like having a kid brother – and I’ve never even had a kid brother. I’m actually going to see him this Saturday – we have a publicity thing to do. It will be like a homecoming – a very dysfunctional ghetto homecoming.

Jack talks about Charm, Conan, and recurring dreams… Read more…

The Rock Life Recap, Episode 6

by

RainbowWho knew a VH1 reality show could demonstrate the ever-widening class distinctions plaguing America? Who suspected that that widening chasm could be so typified by struggling (but not financially) upstart band Whitestarr? I did. In this episode, Rainbow struggles with feeling like a fish out of water. He doesn’t have a gorgeous mansion in Malibu, Mischa Barton for a girlfriend, or Roy Orbison for a dad. In fact, he doesn’t even have a house. His girlfriend supports him and he lives in a bus in Cisco’s driveway. To make matters worse, Rainbow even had to take a job – teaching kids to rock. The humanity.

We love this pic of the singer grinding with a large lady fan on his lap at a concert in NYC this weekend. Size means nothing when it comes to sexy dancin’! [TMZ]

Usher: Desperate for a Son
The newly married star reveals that he wants his soon-to-be born baby to be a boy so he can name him Usher (the fifth). Sounds like a good name, but will his control-freak wife let him have his way? [Us Weekly]

Brad Pitt Tackled by Crazy Fan

Brit: Rockin’ an Engagement Ring
Britney may be getting a lot of s**t for wearing a big rock on her engagement ring finger this weekend, but we totally get what she’s saying. She’s married to herself, ya’ll! Isn’t she lucky? [NYP]

Gisele’s Inappropriate Baby Gift
“The Body” tried to be nice to boyfriend Tom Brady’s ex Bridget Moynahan, purchasing a $1000 gift basket for the actress and her new son, fathered by Brady. Too bad a onesie with “Supermodel” written across it was included in the goodies. Gisele just can’t stop rubbin’ it in! [NYDN]

New York’s New Look

Admittedly, New York’s new look isn’t very different from her old one. She’s rocking new hair, a firmer bod and her breast implants look more…settled. That’s something, at least. The shot above is the first official promo shot for I Love New York 2, which is set to debut Oct. 8 on VH1. We bring it to you first and there’s more — check the gallery below for exclusive shots from the first episode. At the very least, do yourself the favor of checking out the nails Sister Patterson’s rocking. Clearly, the woman aims to terrify.

The Pick-Up Artist- Episode 5 – Recap

by

Holla back boy!

We’re naming Pradeep our Pick Up Artist of the week, given his meteoric game in this episode. We hate to admit it, but we were kind of impressed. But doesn’t the guy still probably want to head home? Let’s just say we wouldn’t shed a tear (like some other guys we know) if he packed his bags for good next week. He may have macked that chick at the coffee shop, but his moves – and stories – were way creepy.

Britney Drops Two New Tracks, Ya’ll!

by

britney083107.jpgIt’s finally happening! Two new Britney singles – Gimme More and Cold As Fire – from her next album have leaked, and it’s both exciting and totally freaky at the same time. One minute she’s all hot and sexy and the next minute she sounds like a cracked out chipmunk – but still both tunes are kinda catchy. We’re so desperate for a Britney comeback that we’ll take what we can get. If she wrote a kickass jam about her fugly hair extensions we’d probably be into it.

When not laying down tracks, the singer is also reportedly working her butt off with creeptastic magician Criss Angel on her VMAs performance. A source tells the NY Daily News that “Angel will guide Spears in and out of a series of mirrors, making it seem as though she vanishes and then reappears several times.” Dancers are also going to be attached to harnesses and propelled in the air so they appear as though they are flying. Brit’s already made out with Madonna, fondling a snake and danced in a sparkly, nude-colored body suit. She’s topped everyone else, but can she top herself?

Give a listen to her two singles and let us know what you think. Do the new tunes put you back on the Britney bandwagon?

Gimme More

Each week we gather the kookiest crap to come down the pike: seems like some stars will say anything. This week’s culprits include a beauty queen, a couple of singers, and a former cokehead. Only the best for you, dear readers!

“I personally believe the U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa or should help the Iraq and Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us.” - Miss Teen South Carolina, when asked in the Miss Teen USA pageant why 1/5 of all Americans can’t find our country on a map.
