Mary Carey might be our favorite Rehabber of either of the two seasons. There’s just something about her inherent combination of vulnerability and brashness that makes her so watchable. The clip above is a deleted scene in which the Rehab alum visits with the new batch and talks about her experiences. It’s not all roses — while she’s effectively done with porn, she isn’t exactly sober either (she rates herself as “60 percent better”). It goes to show that rehab isn’t a cure-all, but in the best-case scenario, it’s the start of an ongoing process. That’s reality for you.
Our scene-specific blog commentary on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew continues. Below, the doctor talks about the main points of the episode: Jeff’s despair, Tawny’s pseudo-self, Amber’s mom and that dramatic 911 call that concluded this week’s episode.
If you’ve read Rich’s recap of this week’s Episode 4 of Scream Queens, you’ll get the inside joke of this video trailer. This is an exclusive look at the parody “official trailer” from Reform School Zombie Squad.
A news story about the engagement of Flavor of Love/Charm School/I Love Money alum Brooke “Pumkin” Thompson’s engagement has been making the Internet rounds, but before you start believing in love after reality TV, check this: a well-placed, highly reliable source tells us that the engagement is fake. “Publicity stunt” is how our source described last month’s official announcement. He/she added that Pumkin is wearing a ring, but it’s “a promise ring…if you even want to call it that.” Pumkin has not returned our calls for an interview, and meanwhile we’re left wondering if this thing will be over before it can even start.
And really, can you even imagine Pumkin settling down after something like this?
Frankly, we don’t want to.
You remember what they did with fright flicks. Dragged ‘em through the mud of sarcasm and silliness. Well, this time around, the Wayan Brothers have their sites set on those mawkish, cluckish dance movies. Marlon, Shawn, Keenan Ivory, and Damien are spoofing everything from Hairspray to You Got Served in their latest laffer, Dance Flick. It’s scheduled or a February 2009 release.
They recently explained themselves, claiming that they watched loads and loads and loads of titles so they could aim their arrows perfectly at the bullseye. Our news team visited the set and came away with a feel for what the movie will be like. Read the story right here.
After withstanding the bashing of her dead mother over the course of two episodes (courtesy of Ki Ki), Lusty was accused of being crazy and sent packing by Real. Yep, things weren’t so easy on Real Chance of Love‘s busty babe, although she reflects on her time in “hell” with a surprising amount of humor. Below, Lusty talks about not letting the show break her down, the resentment she holds for Ki Ki, why she’d never cut a penis off anyone and how Real doesn’t really know the meaning of the worst “exorcist.”
It’s Taylor Swift‘s time right now. Her new Fearless has just been released, the New York Times and the New Yorker have have written thoughtful profiles of her, and our pals at CMT have made a new episode of “Video Replay” for her current hit, “Love Story.” Watch it above.
“Video Replay” has its guests explain their latest clips, and along the way in “Love Story,” the young blonde sensation lets us know that she “wrote a lot of visuals into the song” so it would make for a great video, and dodged a make-out scene suggested by her male lead because she was after a “sweet” vibe. Think she reached her goal?
- Victoria’s Secret hottie Karolina Kurkova has been accused of being overweight. Look at her bikini pics, and tell us what you think.
- Amy Winehouse: Still doing shots; still grotesque.
- Jennifer Aniston: “What Angelina did was very uncool.”
- Kendra and Holly hook up for lunch.
- Kelly Osbourne is engaged!

After watching this season of The Pick Up Artist, it’s obvious that Brian might be the show’s craziest contestant. He has made out with mannequins, admitted to practicing his kissing technique on ham slices, and coined more than his share of slang (“smokin’ balls,” anyone?). Turns out, Brian in real life is exactly like Brian on the show, and when we talked, our conversation had equal amounts ADD and TMI – that’s just how Brian rolls. Deep down though, he’s all about making friends with everyone. In fact, I think we ended the conversation with my promising to cook him dinner if he’s ever in New York. He may be off the show, but Brian’s not easily forgotten.
So tell me, what was it like meeting Mystery, was it exciting or did he just come across as a normal guy?
He was a bit different. When I first saw him I was like wow, he looks like a rock star. I thought we’d have to dress like him and I was like “I’m way too short to wear that trench coat,” and I didn’t know if I’d be able to pull off the Darth Vader goggles and cowboy hat.
Everyone else that I’ve talked to from the show says that you’re the one person they all definitely keep in touch with.
I pretty much get along with everyone and there really wasn’t like any major drama and it’s not like a show where you get voted off, it’s all based on performance so you can do good for three or four challenges and the next challenge you screw up and get kicked off.
