The Latest Buzz on the Tubes [TV News]


Celebrity Apprentice‘s cast of crazies KILLS: Joan Rivers, Andrew Dice Clay, Dennis Rodman, T-Boz, and even that coo-coo figure skater Scott Hamilton! But this bit is troubling: Pro-golfer Natalie Gulbis had only nice words to say about her fellow cast members. Of the always salacious Joan Rivers, Gulbis told USA Today:”I thought of her when I picked out my outfits in the a.m. Is she going to put me on the ‘Worst Dressed List’ with this? Turns out she is just as sweet and motherly as can be.” Joan Rivers and sweet in the same sentence? Stop hiding under your visor, Gulbis. We see right through you and we cannot wait for the drama!

Amy Poehler’s ghosts of closets past: We knew Poehler had quite the sense of humor, but her top 10 sartorial no-nos of yore almost made us pee. A few of her more head-turning numbers: “Tuxedo jacket and hot pink cummerbund, with cheap pleather skirt and French braid. (Senior prom: ‘edgier.’)”, “White shirt, black pants, sequined glove and a ‘little’ bit of blackface. (Michael Jackson Day at school in fourth grade… no joke.)” Our fave, “Royal blue mermaid-style dress with giant, detachable sleeves. (Junior prom.)” We feel your pain, Amy. And you just reminded us that we need to DVR Parks and Recreation.

There may be hope for our once favorite zip-code-turned-vacay-from-hell: We totally gave up after watching two episodes of that lifeless mess that destroyed our beloved 90210 (you know, the good one where Donna Martin graduates). This week’s buzz suggests we may have a 90210 heroine, Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair, thanks to a two year executive producer/showrunner deal. Kirshner, a self-proclaimed fan of the superior original, “cut her bangs the same way as Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and even went to her prom in the same dress Brenda and Kelly (Jennie Garth) wore to theirs.” In short, she’s our kind of girl. “It has the potential to be an iconic, modern, stylish teen drama,” Kirshner told the Hollywood Reporter. Let’s hope her seven figure salary will inspire her. Suggestion: how about just re-casting the whole thing with some non-annoying characters sans the orange tans and soap star acting skills?

“Oh, I’m just a (Gossip) Girl”…: No Doubt’s highly anticipated reunion kicks off with, uh, an appearance on Gossip Girl. Who knew Gwen had a thing for everyone’s favorite snobby albeit fictional Upper East Siders? Is this just a product placement ploy for Gwen to get Blake Lively to don her L.A.M.B. clothing line? (She could do worse…) Although the context in which No Doubt will appear in the show is unknown (but they are, for some reason, covering Adam & The Ants’ “Stand And Deliver”), we’re not gonna lie… we’re kind of, really, “hey baby, hey baby, hey!”, um, excited.
