And the Worst Celebrity Baby Name of 2011 Was...

29 December 2011 8:40 AM, PST | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Celebrities tend to choose some very, er, interesting names for their offspring, but this year two names stood out: Bear Blu Jarecki, born to Alicia Silverstone, and Moroccan Cannon, born to Mariah Carey. Those two tied for the worst celebrity baby boy names of 2011 on a new BabyNames.com poll, ABC News reports. The worst baby girl name "award" went to Zuzu Audrey Peterson, daughter of a former Top Chef Just Desserts contestant. Poll respondents also didn't like the name Mirabella Bunny, daughter to Bryan Adams, or Kevin James' choice for his son, Kannon. But not all the names »

Yigit Pura on the Single Life, a Rainbow Sprinkled Torso and Other New Endeavors

19 December 2011 11:17 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It’s been a little over a year since San Francisco resident Yigit Pura won the first season of Bravo reality competition series, Top Chef: Just Desserts and was also voted fan favorite by the viewers. Since that television exposure Pura has been wearing many hats. While holding down his day job as Executive Pastry Chef with Taste Catering & Event Planning, he also signed on as a Bravo website blogger when the second season of Just Desserts aired in late summer. Plus, he appeared regularly at Lgbt-related benefits and fundraisers, and he's starred in a series of Cooking Channel videos with fellow gay pastry chef Zac Young.

Now, thankfully for us, he is shedding his shirt and being doused in rainbow sprinkles for a 2012 calendar benefiting Meals On Wheels.

To talk about the calendar and to see if there’s more television in his future, Pura put the oven on »

'Top Model' contestant Angelea joins the ranks of reality TV's most memorable disqualifications

8 December 2011 4:40 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Angelea Preston was mysteriously eliminated on last night’s America’s Next Top Model All-Stars finale, forcing the decisive panel in the show’s Greek finale to be reshot and prompting rumors that Preston was stripped of the title (Lisa D’Amato was named winner on the episode that aired). Preston joins a long line of reality participants ingloriously ejected from their 15 minutes of fame. Below, we run down some of the genre’s most memorable forced exits.

More disqualifications than hits?

Before the first live show even aired, American Idol had already disqualified a performer, Delano Cagnolatti, for his age. »

45 Reasons Why The Legend Of Zelda Could Be The Greatest Series Of All Time

20 November 2011 6:36 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

To celebrate the release of Skyward Sword, we take a look at why, The Legend of Zelda could be the greatest series in gaming history. From Skyward Sword all the way back to the very beginning!

1. Good Vs. Evil

“Light and Dark are two sides of the same coin. One cannot live without the other”

Each of the Zelda games follows a very traditional story line. Some may say over used, but there’s no doubt that this formula has worked for countless films, games and books.

The rise of a hero who must rescue the princess from the clutches of an evil villain, that threatens to destroy the land/world/universe.

This is the bare bones of fantastic story telling and has been used by the most popular movies in pop culture.

Zelda has Link, Zelda and Ganondorf

Star Wars has Luke, Leah and Darth Vader.

Even Back to the Future has Marty, »

Top Chef Texas' big mistake: copying lesser shows

10 November 2011 11:04 AM, PST | Reality Blurred | See recent Reality Blurred news »

Top Chef Texas has aired two episodes now, but I'm going to pretend that next week's is the first one, because otherwise I'd be ready to bail on this season because of produces' horrible decision to copy other elimination shows as it narrowed a large pool of contestants down to 16. The franchise is in a deep, well-worn, boring rut, as Top Chef Just Desserts' second season proved, so I can understand and appreciate the »

Top Chef Just Desserts: create your own episode by filling in the blanks of this increasingly formulaic show

19 October 2011 10:08 AM, PDT | Reality Blurred | See recent Reality Blurred news »

Top Chef Just Desserts is nearing the end of its second season--the finale is next week--and while I've been watching, I haven't been completely engaged or excited. Sure, they've had fun challenges, like the Willy Wonka one, and a few crazy contestants (though nothing like last season), but it just seems to lack the spark the first season had. When was thinking about why that's the case, it struck me that the show feels more »

Revenge Episode 4 Review: Public Humiliation for Everyone!

12 October 2011 9:13 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ve never made a secret of the fact that I’ve liked Revenge since the pilot, but this week’s episode completely cemented my love of this fun new drama. It’s true that it’s somewhat ridiculously easy for Emily to take down her enemies each hour, but who cares when it’s so much fun to watch? Not only that, but the most recent episode episode wasn’t just about setting up and taking down the conspirator of the week. It also built in a few additional mysteries, revealed some effective backstory and set up some interesting storylines going forward.

Let’s start at the beginning. Years ago, when Amanda Clarke was still a young girl after her father had been arrested, she was being evaluated by a court-appointed shrink by the name of Dr. Michelle Banks. Back then, Dr. Banks was visited by Victoria, who suggested that Amanda be institutionalized. »

Damon Wayans Jr. and Eliza Coupe Want More "Happy Endings" Onscreen Sex

12 October 2011 6:46 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

During the latest TCA, AfterElton had the chance-- make that pleasure-- of sitting down with several of the stars of ABC's Happy Endings. Last week we shared our joint interview with Adam Pally and Casey Wilson.

This week we have two of their hilarious co-stars, Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr. who play married couple Jane and Brad on the ABC sitcom.

It turns out this pair have nearly as much chemistry in real life as they do on screen. Check out what they had to say about their show getting picked up for a second season, Damon getting hit on by gay fans, Eliza's Ocd and more!

AfterElton: So Eliza, in addition to your work on Happy Endings, I'm also a big fan of you from your Scrubs days.

Eliza Couple: Aw, thanks!

Ae: And I want to know, how come you keep ending up with these wonderfully delirious characters? »

16 September 2011 12:35 PM, PDT | TV.com | See recent TV.com news »

We know most shows don't make their debuts until next week, but Sort-Of Premiere Week gave us plenty of things to like and dislike over the past 6.94 days. So here's our super-sized Sort-Of Premiere Week edition of "Swell/Hell," as we call it around the office.

AfterElton Talks "Just Desserts" With Gail Simmons and Johnny Iuzzini

24 August 2011 7:05 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Johnny Iuzzini and Gail Simmons

As the editor of AfterElton.com, I sometimes have to watch shows I don’t particularly care about and then interview those involved in making that program. Let's just say that sometimes it can be a bit of a chore. (Who said anything about Most Eligible Dallas? I didn’t bring that show up!)

Okay, maybe I did mention Med, but perhaps I shouldn’t speak ill of that particular show because it’s thanks to my having interviewed Drew Ginsburg, one of the “friends” on Med, that I stumbled into an opportunity to interview someone else from a show I actually like a lot. I'm speaking of Top Chef and the person I had the good fortune to interview was judge Gail Simmons, who also happens to be the host of another show I really like: Top Chef: Just Desserts. Even better, it wasn »
