Ellen DeGeneres, daytimes reigning queen (Rip Oprah) regularly asks her hunky male guests like Josh Duhamel and Alex Pettyfer to remove most of their clothing. Now she has a shirtless man in residence, a hunky gardener named Nick who is there nominally to water her wall of fake flowers, but is really »

Jimmy Wong is going back to his YouTube roots. Jumping off his current turn in season three of Video Game High School, Wong has launched an Indiegogo campaign for Band Aid, a six-episode musical comedy series.

We don't blame Corey for this horrible, way-off-base bid on a recent episode of The Price Is Right. The announcer really shoved it in everyone's faces that the hammock comes with a "signature stand" that was "crafted from Southern Cyprus." That hammock is classy as hell. Just look at it! Still, it in no way deserves the guess that poor, poor Corey ventured to host Drew Carey. While most of the contestants placed the value around the $700-$1,200 mark, our hero Corey went balls to the walls with his bid: You read that right. $7,000. For a hammock. The woman next to him in contestant's row was like: And after the audience was stunned silent, Corey was »

"Are you saying you're going to start dressing up like a lady all the time?" Sarah asks her father, who stands before her in full feminine dress, hair and makeup. "My whole life, I've been dressing up like a man," her father explains. "This is me." This is the key conversation at the heart of "Transparent," the great new series — which couldn't be more timely in subject matter, form or distribution — that Amazon is debuting on Friday morning. (You can already watch the pilot here.) To Sarah Pfefferman (Amy Landecker), this is her father Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) standing before her in drag; to her father — who prefers to be called Maura — Mort Pfefferman was always the disguise. "Transparent" comes at a tipping point for social awareness of transgender issues. Earlier this year, the editors at Grantland took a pounding across the internet for publishing a story that outed a trans »

Drew Carey, Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are offering $10,000 as a reward for capturing a group of teens that poured a bucket of urine, spit, feces and cigarette butts on an autistic schoolmate. The incident was recorded as a pastiche on the Als ice bucket challenge which successfully raised money for research on Lou Gehrig’s disease. The teens used the autistic boy’s phone to record the act.
"He was embarrassed because he did not know what the contents were until afterwards, and then he didn't want anybody to know," the mother told the station. "They used his phone to tape it, and they put it up on Instagram."
