Last night’s episode of Survivor was filled with some very candid comments from Morgan McLeod. Among the gems was this: “I am used to things being easier for me and not having to work that hard to get things.” And this: “She is a bitter, ugly, old lady. And I think she hates me because I’m cuter than her and have always been cuter than her.” And this: “If any person in the world can decide to be ugly or cute, most would pick cute.” And — after she was voted out — this: “They can say whatever they want at Tribal, »

Pre-credit sequence. "That was a cool Tribal Council," Spencer announces to his fellow castaways as they return to Solarrion after Sarah's blindside. "I expect everybody to be mad," Kass says, but Spencer claims he's not mad, just not appreciative of the move on a qualitative level. Somewhat stupidly, Spencer blames Kass' decision on being steered by "her estrogen." "The No.1 rule of "Survivor" isn't 'Cater the person on top,' it's 'Wonder about the person on the bottom,'" Kass explains. She takes shelter with her new alliance, as her old alliance keeps peppering her with frustrated insults. "You talking strategy, just stop please," Spencer tells Kass. "So, I pissed off five people, but I gained five friends," Kass says, calling herself a free agent. I'm really not sure Kass understands "Survivor" at all. Or maybe Kass understands "Survivor" flawlessly and it's friendship she doesn't get? Dunno. She's Lump, »

Once again, we're facing some uncertainty as Thursday (March 20) night's "American Idol" results loom. After Wednesday's variably so-so performances, I can imagine a variety of potential eliminations. However, I remain uncertain on which singers would force the judges to use their Save. Probably Alex Preston and Caleb Johnson would be guaranteed saves. But who else? Malaya? Probably. Jena "Gina" Irene? Maybe. Anybody else? I'm not so sure. I'm using a J-Lo picture, because I know she's not going home and I also know she's performing tonight. I don't, however, know how to consistently spell "I Luh Ya Papi," but I know it's J-Lo's new song about her appreciation for the postseason exploits of David Ortiz. Also performing on Thursday? Something called Royal Teeth. Click through for the full recap! 8:58 p.m. Et. This week, I remembered that "Idol" was on at 9 and not at 8. I'm the true hero. »

Leave it to Biebs to get the Twitterverse all riled up. TMZ on Monday released video of Justin Bieber's six-hour-long deposition. The pop star was being questioned as part of a lawsuit alleging he ordered his bodyguard to attack a photographer. And while it's no laughing matter, people Tweeted comical reactions to the singer's behavior. An irritated Bieber, 20, is shown in the video getting angry when grilled about on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez. "Don't ask me about her again," Bieber said repeatedly before having to take a break. Another clip shows Bieber comparing the deposition to a Katie Couric or 60 Minutes interview. »

Uhhhhh ... guys? Where did Katherine just go?!
Instead of going gentle into that good night (which she didn't plan on doing anyway), the 500-year-old vampire was sucked into some dark vortex on Thursday (March 6) night's episode of "The Vampire Diaries." Yeah, not only is Katherine -- the best character on "Tvd," hands freakin' down -- dead, she's gone permanently. There is no second chance, no plan B, no loophole, no coming back from the dead or playing Passenger in someone's mind. Katherine is gone, ripped from this world, and sent ... not to The Other Side, but some kind of hell, according to executive producer Caroline Dries.
The introduction of this darker Other Side -- let's call it The Dark Side, for consistency's sake -- is interesting to say the least. It opens the door to so many new questions. First of all, why is Katherine the first person we've seen »

There's nothing like the bond between a mother and daughter—at any given time, one or the other always knows best. So, sure enough, Jennie Garth's eldest daughter, Luca, knew what she was doing when she bought her mom the self-help book S--t Happens So Get Over It for Christmas in 2012, just months after her parents' separation. "I thought, 'Are you kidding me? I can't believe she's so insensitive!'" Garth recalled to People while talking about her new memoir, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blond, available in hard copy and digital download March 4. But guess where that book is now? Yup, the living room coffee table. Garth and now ex-husband »
Sometimes kids say - and do - the darndest things. That's what Jennie Garth learned two years ago when her eldest daughter Luca, then 15, gave her a book for Christmas. The title? S--- Happens So Get Over It. "I thought, 'Are you kidding me? I can't believe she's so insensitive,'" recalls Garth, whose 11-year marriage to actor Peter Facinelli had ended earlier that year. The reality of that symbolic wake-up call (now displayed on her living room coffee table) was just what the actress, who's also a mom to daughters Lola, 11, and Fiona, 7, needed to move on with her life and rebuild her career. »

It only took two episodes of Star-Crossed for someone to utter the line we’d all been waiting for (and secretly hoping would kick off the pilot): “We’re from two different worlds.” To be fair, in Star-Crossed’s case, that is an accurate statement. Emery is from Earth and Roman is from Atria, a planet we know little about other than that it’s dying and yet somehow superior to Mars. Intergalactic drama, amirite?
But in watching Roman pull the “different worlds” card, I couldn’t help but be transported back to the second episode of The O.C. »

Shockingly, Coca-Cola’s beautiful ad celebrating American diversity provoked a storm of haters tweeting that all the non-English speaking voices in the ad should ‘Speak American.’
Coca-Cola aired their new commercial during the Super Bowl, titled “It’s Beautiful,” but it brought out the ugly side of a disgusting number of prejudice commenters on Twitter. The ad was a celebration of American multiculturalism portraying citizens from all different backgrounds — races, ethnicities, skin colors — as well as the first gay family ever to be shown in a Super Bowl ad. Scenes of Americans from all different walks of life were caught on film while “America the Beautiful” was sung in several different languages. It was a touching and inspiring representation of America’s exclusiveness, but the reaction proved that there are still far too many ignorant people out there.
Coca-Cola’s Super Bowl Commercial
We’re completely shocked by the Twitter reaction from the Coke commercial. »

Can you believe it's been 20 years since the Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan ice-skating scandal?! Two decades ago, Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly hired a man to break Kerrigan's leg so that she wouldn't be able to compete against Harding in the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit. Now, Harding is reflecting on the infamous scandal that many still blame her for. "I don't care," Harding told Access Hollywood when asked if she's bothered by the public's opinion of her in relation to the infamous event. "Everybody is entitled to their opinion, it was 20 years ago. [Gillooly and I] both have gone our separate ways. Get over it, okay? Its 20 years. I'm sure that »
Drinking Buddies is one of those easeful films one watches to compare the archetypes of the generation one lives in against one's life. When seeing the banality of middle class living inside the film, the viewer may question one’s own life lived instead of the empty ones on the screen: Am I this conceited? Why is my best friend so lazy? Does my beard make me look fat? But the images the film constructs aren’t strong enough to stop the inquiry from swelling to Barthesian proportions, and more spaces open to query what exactly one is doing with one’s life to be watching such a film. Why do people hi-five so much in the last fifteen years? Why do I hi-five? I’ve been to Chicago. Chicago looks like Portland in this film. Should I move to Portland or Chicago? Are microbreweries a metaphor for scrappy individualism »
