Who is Lauren Schwab on Catching Kelce?

Catching Kelce is coming into the home straight — and one of the favorites to end up with Travis Kelce is Lauren Schwab. But who is she? Blonde bombshell Lauren — who Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis described as “wife material” — is a fitness instructor, gym owner and personal trainer. She lives in Los Angeles but grew up in Kansas and also spent time in Missouri growing up — the state she represents on the E! show.

Remember Gandhi? Baby Jake? Harlow?

On this day in movie related history...

1893 Mahatma Gandhi committed his first act of civil disobedience refusing to move from a whites only first class section of a train. He had a valid ticket, after all. He was forcibly ejected in South Africa's Pietermaritzburg Railway Station. This event and many others from his nonviolent revolution were reenacted by Ben Kingsley in Gandhi, Oscar's Best Picture of 1982. (You can cover a lot with a running time of 191 minutes.)

1909 Jessica Tandy is born. Steals Michelle Pfeiffer's Oscar 80 years, 9 months, and 19 days later.

1917 Rat Pack royalty Dean Martin is born. Centennial next year.

1928 Perpetually underappreciated and totally awesome director James Ivory is born. Later makes masterpieces like A Room With a View and Howards End. Where's his Honorary Oscar, AMPAS? He's 87 people get on that immediately.

1937 The original Bombshell, Jean Harlow dies suddenly at the peak of her fame at the age of 26. Where's her biopic?

The Real Danish Girls: Meet the Trans Pioneers Before Laverne Cox & Caitlyn Jenner

The Real Danish Girls: Meet the Trans Pioneers Before Laverne Cox & Caitlyn Jenner
Focus Features’ “The Danish Girl,” opening Nov. 27 in a limited run, stars Eddie Redmayne as Lili Elbe, a real-life pioneer in sex-reassignment surgeries that took place in 1930-31. Alicia Vikander plays Gerda Wegener, Elbe’s supportive wife.

In 2015, transgender people are in the news daily, but Elbe’s story was virtually unknown at the time. Reports of sex-reassignment were so rare that the world was shocked more than 20 years later to hear of Christine Jorgensen. She had been George Jorgensen from the Bronx but became a woman thanks to surgery — in Denmark, interestingly enough.

The New York Daily News on Dec. 1, 1952 ran a story headlined “Ex-g.I. Becomes Blonde Bombshell.” And people around the world began to realize that gender was not an absolute either/or fact. Jorgensen was the subject of stories in newspapers and the relatively new medium of television. So she did what any enterprising celebrity would

Largely Forgotten, Frequent Cagney Partner Remembered on TCM

Pat O'Brien movies on TCM: 'The Front Page,' 'Oil for the Lamps of China' Remember Pat O'Brien? In case you don't, you're not alone despite the fact that O'Brien was featured – in both large and small roles – in about 100 films, from the dawn of the sound era to 1981. That in addition to nearly 50 television appearances, from the early '50s to the early '80s. Never a top star or a critics' favorite, O'Brien was nevertheless one of the busiest Hollywood leading men – and second leads – of the 1930s. In that decade alone, mostly at Warner Bros., he was seen in nearly 60 films, from Bs (Hell's House, The Final Edition) to classics (American Madness, Angels with Dirty Faces). Turner Classic Movies is showing nine of those today, Nov. 11, '15, in honor of what would have been the Milwaukee-born O'Brien's 116th birthday. Pat O'Brien and James Cagney Spencer Tracy had Katharine Hepburn.

Grey's Anatomy Recruits Reign Hottie Giacomo Gianniotti for Top-Secret Role

Grey's Anatomy Recruits Reign Hottie Giacomo Gianniotti for Top-Secret Role
Grey’s Anatomy is about to be graced by royalty.

The venerable ABC medical drama has cast Giacomo Gianniotti — Aka faux “Lord Julien” on The CW’s Reign — to join the cast in a potentially recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively. An ABC rep confirmed the Italian actor’s casting, but provided no details about his character. (My guess: He’s a new intern.)

Career Watch: Cameron Diaz Is Back as 'The Other Woman,' But What's Her Next Best Move? (Clips)
Blonde bombshell Cameron Diaz is currently basking in the limelight thanks to her starring role in Nick Cassavetes' romantic comedy "The Other Woman," a so-far box office success that opened last Friday. Though this film has been eviscerated by critics for its woozy sexual politics, clearly audiences are happy to see Diaz again. (We'll see how the second weekends holds.) So with a potential hit on her hands, what's her next best move? Signature line: "I don't need a blackboard or a classroom to set an example." -"Bad Teacher"Career peaks. Diaz, 41, has been kicking around in mainstream comedies and dramas, and even indies, for two decades after cutting her teeth in the 1994 comic fantasy "The Mask" opposite Jim Carrey. Her true breakout, the Farrelly Brothers' raunch-fest "There's Something About Mary," followed in 1998. But she's delivered plenty of roles to remember. All frazzled hair and frittered nerves, Diaz

Kellie Pickler on 'Man With The Bag' for Cma Country Christmas 2013

Blonde bombshell Kellie Pickler is no stranger to the annual ABC special Cma Country Christmas. Her choice this year was her new single "Man With The Bag," a remake of the 1954 holiday tune by Kay Starr.

Kellie's version is bubbly, jazzy and a lot of fun. Above is an short Instagram of the performance. The video isn't great, but the audio is terrific. We'll post the full video as soon as we have it. "Man With the Bag" was released as a single by Pickler earlier this year, so if you were a fan of her Marilyn Monroe-esque performance, download it now.

During her pre-performance interview, Pickler was talking about her favorite holiday foods and she had an interesting answer -- "fried okra." That sounds delicious to us, but her husband Kyle Jacobs wasn't quite sure what to make of that. Heh.

Two New International ‘Paranoia’ Posters Surface

A further two international posters (one German and the other Australian) have arrived from the thriller Paranoia. It is led by rising Aussie and Thor’s brother Liam Hemsworth, in the story of greed and backstabbing in the world of big business. Legally Blonde and 21 director Robert Luketic is at the helm with superstars Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman co-starring and reunited for the first time since Air Force One. Blonde bombshell Amber Heard also appears as welcome eye candy in this macho world of chest puffing and dick measuring (although thankfully not in the literal sense (we think?).

The high stakes thriller Paranoia takes us deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception. The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other.

Big Brother 14 Week 3/Week 1 Review - Kill Me Now...

Big Brother 14 Week 3/Week 1 Review - Kill Me Now...

Remember when Big Brother used to be exciting and lived up to their motto of 'Expect the Unexpected?' Well, after tonight's little switcheroo, I don't see the Big Brother that I revolved my entire summer around returning anytime soon, or rather my excitement for said show. Now, Big Brother's ominous motto of 'Expect the Unexpected' has become a joke of itself... and not a funny one that. But you are not here to read my whining. So let's get to tonight's "gamechanging" episode, and I use gamechanging lightly.

As the night began, the HGs were running around reacting to Shane's decision to put Frank on the block instead of Danielle or one of Mike Boogie's lesser liked players, like Ian. The move sent Mike into ass-kicking mode, but Frank told his mentor to chill out and trust Shane's

Big Brother 14 Week 3 Pov Competition & Ceremony - The Night the $#*% Hit The Fan

Big Brother 14 Week 3 Pov Competition & Ceremony - The Night the $#*% Hit The Fan

Tonight's Big Brother episode was a testament to how live feeds don't necessarily hold the same excitement as an actual Big Brother episode can entail. While I knew the outcome of the Pov ceremony and the chaos it caused in its wake, the editing and confessionals enhanced that knowledge threefold. However, it still didn't help deter my utter horror of the Coaches becoming players this week, because let's face it: it's going to happen.

After nominations were given, Janelle rallied her troops together to encourage them to show no ill will towards Shane for his nominations. Joe was hella pissed, while Ashley was distraught, but got over it. Janelle later went to speak to Britney, who explained that Shane's reasoning for nominating her players was backlash for Janelle and crew splitting from Britney's crew after week one.

Brooklyn Decker: I'm not great looking

Brooklyn Decker doesn't think she looks 'that great in person'. The Sports Illustrated model-turned-actress insists she isn't as attractive in person as she appears in her photo shoots and she didn't enjoy seeing herself on the big screen in her new movie 'What To Expect When You're Expecting'. The 25-year-old blonde - who stars in the film alongside Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison - told the New York Post newspaper: 'I have a glow, but it's good make-up. I cover up spots. Jeez, I'm not all that great in person ... And seeing myself all blown up on-screen? Times a million enlarged? My face looks like it's been PhotoShopped. It's unnerving.'

Blood of the Vines: Forbidden Planet

Randy gets cosmic.

If you want to see where everybody got the ideas for their science fiction films of the past half century, watch “Forbidden Planet.” This movie is out of this world. In fact, it was the first film to be set entirely on a planet other than Earth. It’s not unusual in Tinseltown to find folks operating on a plane of their own, but a planet of their own was simply unheard of in 1956.

The special effects – groundbreaking stuff that became an industry standard – were nominated for an Academy Award. The Oscar was won by The Ten Commandments that year. Another 1956 space flick was nominated for the short subject Oscar – “Gerald McBoing-Boing On Planet Moo” – but it didn’t win either. It was beaten out by “Mister Magoo’s Puddle Jumper.” Aah, the scales of justice can tilt harshly.

The eerie electronic score was so far ahead of its time,

Alice Eve beams into Star Trek sequel

Blonde bombshell Alice Eve is the first new cast member officially announced to Paramount's next Star Trek movie. But who will she play in the sequel?

If you're a Trekkie, then your mind has already raced ahead and cast Eve as the new Nurse Chapel. However, the source that broke the casting news also is quick to report that Eve's character is supposed to be a new addition to the Trek universe. That would rule out her playing Chapel or a younger Carol Marcus, love interest of James Kirk, both of whom were blondes.

While Eve is the first official casting break, there's also the rumor that Benicio Del Toro and his camp are weighing an offer to play the new bad guy in the next Trek film. Also, Variety states that there's a third important role to be filled, likely an older comrade to Del Toro's villain.

55th BFI London Film Festival: ‘Poupoupidou (Nobody Else But You)’

Poupoupidou (Nobody Else But You)

Director: Gérald Hustache-Mathieu

Screenplay by Juliette Sales and Gérald Hustache-Mathieu

In French with English subtitles

How much do you really know about cinema’s most famous blonde? Director Gérald Hustache-Mathieu’s Poupoupidou isn’t a biopic of Marilyn Monroe, but certain details about the life and death of Martine Lingevin, aka Candice Lecoeur, aka cheese poster girl “Belle de Jura” may seem very familiar.

That title is a reference to “I Wanna Be Loved by You”, Marilyn’s famous number from Some Like It Hot. The opening credits seem to be taking their cue from Bert Stern’s Vogue photos – diaphanous top, nipple, bare flesh. It’s just the tip of the iceberg for cinephiles – an appropriate metaphor for a movie set in a snowbound town in Eastern France.

Poupoupidou is one of those films in which the two leading characters never meet because one of them is already dead.
