British boy band The Wanted performed a cover of Tori Kelly’s “Fill A Heart” on Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. The proceeds of the band’s cover will go to the “Child Hunger Ends Here” campaign.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker later tweeted about their performance:
Loved performing on DWTS. And it was for a real worthy cause. Visit childhungerendshere.com to make a difference x

Missing from the group was Nathan Parker who is still recovering from throat surgery.

Fox29 anchors Sheinelle Jones and Mike Jerrick couldn’t keep it together after interviewing Olympic swimmer and new reality star Ryan Lochte. I don’t blame them because how can you when you get answers like these: “I’m a man at night and I’m a man in the morning,” or, “There’s a mirror with a sink and there’s the bathroom.”
Oh bless you, Ryan Lochte. You precious thing. You’re really attractive one minute and then it’s all gone the next once you open your mouth. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in your new show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?
On an episode of TLC’s My Crazy Obsession, Eric Ducharme introduces the world to his obsession with mermaids. He doesn’t simply collect mermaid figurines, he becomes one. Ducharme has a large collection of tails that he uses to transform himself into a merman. Though he already is a certified scuba instructor, he typically free dives with his tail on and can go about 4 minutes underwater before having to surface for air!
This is one My Crazy Obsession that I don’t think is very crazy at all. Well, it’s not on the “I married the Eiffel Tower” level of crazy. I’m not going to lie, my 8-year-old self would be fangirling over Ducharme’s tail collection. I, too, was obsessed with mermaids (blame Disney) and even pretended I was one as I dolphin-kicked across the pool. Thanks to my vivid imagination, I learning how to do the butterfly stroke came pretty naturally. So four for you, Eric Ducharme! You live your merman life to the fullest!
Yes…you did not read that wrong. TLC ACTUALLY WENT THERE.
Just when you thought the series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was bad, TLC now has a show called “Best Funeral Ever.” Honouring your loved ones with the most epic funeral service ever, we see people carrying caskets through boxing rings and dance parties.
Yikes! I’ll have to admit this is pretty morbid, but I guess some people just don’t like doing things the conventional way.
That being said, if you could have a unique funeral…what would you have?
TLC has topped itself once again on the douche-0-metre with their new show Extreme Cougar Wives. Yes TLC, of Breaking Amish, Honey Boo Boo and Virgin Diaries. The new show follows “extreme cougars” who are sleeping with men a third their age.
Part of me is interested in hearing about these quirky couples who break the social norm but another part of me hates that TLC aka “The Learning Channel” is thriving off these reality shows that enable you to gawk at people who are different than you — rather just learn about and appreciate them. It’s not exactly the topics TLC covers that bothers me, it’s how they edit it all together in their glitzy package.
In the teaser, 76-year-old Hattie says: “My lifestyle is extreme.” Then she sits on the lap of a 25-year-old and later licks a popsicle and tells her date she enjoys being naked. While I appreciate their attempt at showcasing different relationships they always do it in such a cringe-worthy way.

Yes, the headline of this article may look deceiving but I assure you that it’s real.
While auditioning for Thailand’s Got Talent, this woman shocks crowds for not singing amazingly as a woman…and also as a man.
That being said, my mind is blown. You should try closing your eyes to listen to this song. It could very well be a duet!!
Maybe I’m a little confused these days, but when did calling someone Honey Boo Boo become a compliment? Have our standards become that low? Kesha tweeted Britney Spears her well wishes before last night’s premiere of The X-Factor, on which Spears is a judge, by jokingly calling her Honey Boo Boo.
Yeah, okay, the whole peer support thing it pretty cute — even if Honey Boo Boo is a six-year-old brat — but Spears’ reply was the clincher. Of course, her reference about Pepsi being her special juice is straight from The Book of Boo itself.
I try to reserve a no-judgment rule about what shows people watch, but I’m just saying, given the choice of watching a TLC brat and genuinely talented people on the old X, I’m going to take the latter!
BAMF Girls Club by Comediva is quickly becoming one of my new favourite shows. It stars kickass female characters like Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger, The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen and The Walking Dead’s Michonne… And then of course there’s Twilight’s Bella, but I don’t know if she’s earned the strong, female role model label (sorry Bella).
Anyway, two new episodes are finally out. The first involves the ladies setting down house rules and unsuccessfully trying to elect a leader. The second guest stars Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark, who got herself into trouble and is forced to spend a day with Hermione as punishment. Though personally, I’d love to spend a day with the witch!
If you missed the first episode, be sure to check it out here.
Third episode: Read more…
We first got excited about BAMF Girl’s Club when we saw the trailer back in July, depicting fictional heroines (and Bella) being awkward on the Comediva reality show. Episode one features Katniss, Bella, Hermione and zombie slayer Michonne, among others.
In this episode, the ladies move into their new home and drama starts right away when Lisbeth Sander attempts to make friends with Hermione. Unfortunately Lisbeth thinks “making friends” means researching all of Hermione’s sordid past actions and reciting them to her (will this come back to haunt the witch?).
Katniss Everdeen is a reality show pro and we’ll have to watch closely to see who she strategically chooses for her alliance (my bet is on Michonne and Buffy).
Then there’s Bella who pretty much gets upset by everything. Team Jacob will surely be shedding tears along with her at the end.

Village people, she’s cutting our books with an exacto knife, masquerading the brutal massacre as craft time!! I call MURDER. Where’s my pitchfork?
In a new DIY craft project, reality show star Lauren Conrad shows you how to take innocent little books and gut them so you can create trendy looking storage units for your extra mascara tubes and waxing kits. This way, people won’t see your oh-so-embarrassing collection of reading materials hidden inside the box (Fifty Shades of Grey, Cosmo) and instead mistake you as a literary genius.
It saves space and it makes you look smart. But I have to ask you Lauren, what did the books ever do to you? And what will Lauren Conrad’s Crafty Creations destroy next week? Retro VHS copies of Brat Pack movies? The thought…

This week, we see the Jersey Shore roomies be less than supportive of Snooki and her little meatball, J-Woww’s dad who surprisingly looks like an English professor, and Jionni try to kick Roger in the head.
Here’s what I learned on this week’s episode of Snooki and JWoww ”Sober party of one.”
1. Ouch, J-Woww! I get the Jersey Shore cast being less than supportive about Snooki’s big news. It is Snooki after all, the girl who blacked out on the very first night back in Season 1. But J-Woww’s supposed to be her bestie. You can’t join in with the teasing, you have to back her up. But she was arguably the worst, calling Snooki “miserable” and saying that watching her makes her not want to have a kid. Ouch, I really felt for Snooks with that one.
2. The gay friends Joey: These guys were so great, but Nicole’s Joey was the best. He took one shot of Patron too many and was completely wasted. He had J-Woww spray tan his butt, hit on Roger while slurring his words, and managed to flip the couch over while still sitting on it. Also, the fact that he looks like a guido lumberjack but sounds like David Beckham is comedy gold.
3. Roger needs to get laid: I’m getting really tired of him talking about how much he doesn’t get laid/his dick/his venereal disease history. Enough already. I know he’s all about being the funny guy, but it seems that especially when he’s drunk, he’s a bit of an oversharer. And the fact that tonight, he was sitting right next to J-Woww’s father? Disrespectful. Maybe if he and J-Woww smushed a little more, he wouldn’t be so obnoxious.
Coming soon to Comediva, a new reality show called BAMF Girls Club starring your favourite badass teen heroines, including The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger and Buffy the Vampire Slayer… oh and then there’s Twilight’s mopey Bella Swan. The most needy, possessive heroine of them all.
You can only imagine the drama that unfolds with Lisbeth Salander trying to pierce any submissive girl’s nose she can and Michonne slashing anyone who looks like a zombie (ahem, Bella).
The show was written by Vicki Toro and directed by Emily McGregor. My predictions? With Katniss and Michonne’s new pact a schism will split the group. Katniss will be called fake and she’ll eventually turn to alcohol. Hermione will erupt over dirty dishes that Lisbeth refuses to clean, and Bella will cry in a corner and eventually leave the show so she can be with Edward.

As I previously mentioned, I get bored very easily. One of my favourite cures for boredom is TV And since I get bored easily, I watch it A LOT. I watch it at work and at home and when I can’t watch it, I think about what my life would be like if it were being watched on a weekly basis by millions of people. This, of course, makes me paranoid that I’m being watched as part of some weird and unbelievably boring Truman Show. Then I realize the ratings for a show like that would never survive today’s competitive prime time schedule. Maybe they’d put me on during the day.
Anyways, if my life were to be broadcast by satellite to other incurably bored people like myself, I think I’d want it to be a comedy. I like the idea of being part of a light-hearted satire where all serious conflicts in my life can be solved in at least 20 minutes. There would, however, have to be some changes I’d need to make to my life in order to make it reality show friendly.
Five things you need for your life to be a reality show (alternate title: why my life is not a reality show):
1. The first thing you have to do is choose a small group of people (between four and 20) for whom your entire life will revolve around for roughly six seasons and a movie. These people may irritate you or make it impossible to live a normal life, but that won’t matter as long as your audience is entertained. Read more…
Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca pissed the entire Internet right off today and is supposedly receiving death threats after she was snapped by controversial photographer Tyler Shields destroying and burning a $100,000 Birkin bag.
The photos were meant to be artistic and Tyler wrote on his blog: “For the people who don’t know a Birkin is the most sought after bag in the entire world there is a waiting list and some of them can run upwards of $100,000. This is the red Crocodile Birkin VS the red $200 chainsaw and 4 dollars of gasoline!”
After the intro he asked the following questions: “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom… Would you want this bag? Are you sad to see me destroy it?”
The photos appear to be a promotion for the current reality show “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” though he posted similar photos in January of a pair of Christian Louboutin’s meeting their demise with drills. The comments range from calling the stunt a narcissistic show of their own excesses to “fucking spoiled rich fuckers.”
Others praised the art and claimed the negative commenters just don’t appreciate the message, which is kind of fuzzy to me in the first place.
One thoughtful commenter noted the bag is a piece of art itself, made by high skilled and often underpaid craftspeople. Tyler and Francesca burning it and claiming it’s art, is just fraudulent.
Does it make you want to watch the Eastwood’s show more or less?

Not to stereotype, but MTV reality stars and contestants aren’t usually the cleverest of the bunch. We’re used to seeing them savoring 15 minutes of fame after spouting off offensive rants, engaging in drunken fists fights or canoodling in an unhygienic hot tub.
I was still surprised to see this clip of Emily on “The Challenge The Battle of the Exes,” imitate her partner Ty by smearing Nutella on her face. On this season, cast members team up with people they previously dated. Emily and Ty dated during their season of “The Real World: D.C.” and broke up after Ty hooked up with another girl.
Apparently Emily was raised in a cult and was sheltered from the world (for real) and said she had never even heard of the term “blackface.” But that still doesn’t excuse her behaviour! Also, if you have to ask if it’s racist, it probably is!
I actually can’t watch this entire clip without shielding my eyes so I’m in awe if you can make it through the whole thing.
Ayanna, from My Strange Addiction, is addicted to growing her toenails and fingernails. From what I gather (I listened to the audio), the addiction started when she was 24 and she calls her toenails her babies. “I will fiercely protect them at all costs,” she says.
Unfortunately day to day activities are impossible, she even has to walk sideways on the stairs. She also can’t wear shoes or socks or play sports with her grand kids.
SallyAnn Salsano, the mastermind behind the hit reality show Jersey Shore, is focusing on your newest trash t.v. fix on Vh1.
Titled Mama Drama, the show will feature five mother-and-daughter pairs living in the same house. But it’s not just any mother and daughter, the moms are actually obsessed with staying young and dressing like their kids. In short, cougars with their cubs.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Salsano says the house can get pretty chaotic.
“This show is emotionally and visually stimulating. You can’t stop watching. These characters are real and raw and don’t apologize for anything,” she says.
I can’t imagine a show like this without any fighting, hair pulling, bitch slapping, tacky weaves and inappropriate dresses as short as their tempers.
This coming January, curl up on the couch with your mama and get ready for some drama. Mama Drama premieres January 1 on VH1.
Another star that’s spending too much time chattin’ bull on Twitter is living legend Cher.
Her transgendered son Chaz Bono was eliminated on Dancing With the Stars last night and Cher has some mean words to say on Twitter.
She tweeted: “Congratulations Chaz I’m SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Quest & u Followed your Star but your mom “could cut a bitch!….
Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out! To the Gentleman? I didn’t know who u were b4 which I guess is a blessing!
Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT ! As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man!”
If I were Bruno (the grumpy old judge on the show who called Chaz a “little penguin”) I would apologize immediately. I’m trying to picture Cher “cutting a bitch” and it doesn’t look pretty!
Britsol Palin got more than she bargained for last night when filming her reality show. While riding a mechanical bull (we are not kidding) a man yelled, ”Your mother’s a whore.”
He also shouted, ”Did you ride Levi like that?”
Bristol confronted the man, and he called Sarah “evil” — and Bristol replied, “Is it because you’re a homosexual and that’s why you hate her?”
The man responded, “Pretty much … and why’d you say I’m a homosexual?”
Bristol shot back — “Because I can tell you are.”
Either way, she does ride a mechanical very well.
