A talking doll displayed in a Us shopping mall has sparked complaints after appearing to swear. The You and Me Play and Giggle Triplet dolls seem to say, "Ok, crazy bitch" when their sensors go off, reports NBC News. A Toys 'R' Us spokeswoman said: "Obviously we would not sell a doll that uses profanity. What you're hearing is just baby babble... There are no plans to pull it off the shelves." Grandmother Pauline Davis, who bought the doll as a last-minute Christmas present, vented her (more) »

The Film Miranda July’s debut film, You And Me And Everyone We Know, gained the writer/director a great deal of acclaim for its quirky but emotionally compelling nature. Her second feature The Future is a logical progression from her Sundance hit, presenting a more sophisticated and intellectual film. The story depicts an incredibly passive couple, played by July herself and Hamish Linklater, who become obsessed with the idea that soon they’ll be too old to accomplish anything significant. That fear leads them both on an attempt to turn things around, which, like their current lives, doesn’t go as planned. It’s a heart-breaking story that deals with the struggle for achieving personal satisfaction in a fascinating way. July also delves into the supernatural at times, including a »

Interview conducted November 15th, 2011 by Tom Stockman (who had not yet seen the film)
Born in Seattle, Washington in 1921,Carol Channing made her Broadway debut in 1941 in the show Let’s Face It, and she’s been on the stage ever since, landing the star-making role of Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in 1949 and originating the role of Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly! in 1964. Since then, the actress with the big eyes, red lips, blonde mane and bubbly personality has been a one-of-a-kind presence on stage, in movies and on television, still maintaining a busy schedule as she approaches the age of 90. Filmmaker and Tony-Award winning producer Dori Berinstein offers a fascinating profile of a singular talent in the documentary Carol Channing: Larger Than Life, which chronicles her life on an off the stage as she rehearses a new show while discussing her life in the theater, her four »

A larger-than-life wedding and a whirlwind divorce: Kim Kardashian's divorce could pass for the plot of a country ballad. And Wednesday night, it did just that. As Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley took to the Bridgestone Arena stage for Nashville's biggest night at the Country Music Association Awards, the four-time hosts addressed Kardashian and Kris Humphries with a tongue-in-cheek tune. Along with Emmy-winning Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, the country crooners sang, "I'm gonna love you forever." "Or 72 days," Stonestreet chimed in. "Amen." Kardashian and Humphries weren't the only couple at the butt of the hosts' jokes. Faith Hill »

Marlo Thomas is an actress who means different things to different generations. Baby boomers know her as Danny Thomas' daughter and the star of That Girl (a show that has come up recently as the foremother of shows like New Girl).
Gen X knows her as Phil Donahue's wife and the creator of "Free to Be You and Me." She's often seen as host of that show about St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital that seems to run at random times, pre-empting other shows I want to watch. (The cause is a worthy one, but the show makes me tired.) And for all generations in NYC, she is frequently on stage — most recently in Broadway's Relatively Speaking.
The 73-year-old Thomas is one of my celebrity encounters, although only people over 40 are duly impressed. She came to town for the world premiere recording of Songs of Wisdom from Old Turtle »

Hollywoodnews.com: “Sleepless Night” and “The Raid” were the two breakout hits from this year’s Midnight Madness program at the Toronto International Film Festival. Both were so popular, they’ve already triggered American remakes. But you want to know when you can see the originals, right? Of course.
So, good news. Tribeca Film announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to “Sleepless Night,” which will be released in 2012 on VOD and theatrically by Tribeca Film. Warner Bros. recently acquired the English-language remake rights to the film, which is directed by Frédéric Jardin.
“I am thrilled and honored to work with Tribeca for the North American release of Sleepless Night,” Jardin said. “It’s a superb opportunity for my film.”

After the break-up of a great band, the subsequent solo releases need to balance everything that is needed for a great record: sounding fresh, different and inventive without alienating the fans that you left behind. An example of a solo that was not so successful was Liam Gallagher’s post-Oasis band Beady Eye, which took all the worst parts of Oasis and made an album out of them. Their first album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ was incredibly dull, even disappointing the charts by only reaching number three in the charts. Over six months later and Liam Gallagher’s brother and Oasis band mate, Noel Gallagher is releasing his first album under the name ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’
When ‘High Flying Birds’ first starts it sound not too dissimilar from Oasis songs such as ‘The Masterplan’ and ‘The Importance of Being Idle’. The ‘oh so familiar’ soft Manchurian voice »

Bianca continues to be confrontational and think everybody hates her because she's a threat. Must be Wednesday.
Flag football. Awesome. Brittny Gastineau and Julie Henderson are there. Brittny is a socialite and Julie is a "fiercely real" supermodel. The teams are filled out by the eliminated girls, then some NFL players - Julian Edelman from the Patriots, Jahvid Best from the Lions, Kareem Jackson from the Texas and Dante Hughes from the Chargers. Angelea is beside herself. You and me both, girl.
The stupid Tyra twist is when a flag is thrown, you have to immediately strike a pose for the photographer. You win a spread on Tyra's website and some jewelry. The winning team splits $5000 between the two charities represented »
Take Me Home is, in the simplest form, a road movie. It tells the story of two strangers who find themselves at less than desirable points in their life, and take off on a cross-country road trip from New York to California.
Sam Jaegar, best known for his role on the television show Parenthood, is the writer, director, and (along with his wife Amanda Jaeger) star of the film. I recently got the chance to have a conversation with him about how he came to make this project, the perils of wearing many hats, and the beauty of filming the United States.
William Bitterman: First of all, thank you for taking the time to sit down with me today. It’s pretty cool, I realize you be very busy.
Sam Jaeger: Oh no, it’s my pleasure.
WB: And I guess I’ll just go ahead and let you know, »

Anna Faris (who is great) stars in a new movie called 'What's Your Number?' (which is the opposite of great). In a world that we -- as humans -- like to pretend makes sense, often we are forced to face paradoxes such as this one. But we will. Together. You and me. Right now. So, with that, here's an answer to every question that you could possibly have about a terrible movie called 'What's Your Number?'

The fan-favorite film, which was nominated for four Oscars, was directed by Vincente Minnelli (An American in Paris) and co-stars Margaret O’Brien (1943′s Jane Eyre) and Mary Astor (The Maltese Falcon).
The movie offers a slice of Americana as it deals with the lives and loves of the irrepressible Smith family during the year of the St. Louis World’s Fair.
“The Boy Next Door,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “The Trolley Song” are a handful of the standards from the film, which was one of the two highest-grossing MGM theatrical releases of its time.

Question: Can you give me some really good stuff about what is going to happen on Gossip Girl? —Saloni
Ausiello: Good stuff coming your way in 3, 2, 1… The show is pulling out “all the stops” for its milestone 100th episode in January, according to executive producer Josh Safran. “We want to honor the [fact] that it’s the 100th episode,” he says. “We know that we are very lucky to be coming by it, and »

Cable TV has a tradition, I think begun with The Sopranos, where the second-to-last episode of any given season is the one where the serious sh*t goes down. In other words, the penultimate episode is usually the ultimate one, at least in terms of awesomeness.
That’s certainly been the case with True Blood in seasons past. And from this latest episode, it seems to be a pattern that now continues, with several storylines neatly tied up in a pat 50 minutes. And then something else happens that’s so surprising, I’m still trying to get my head around it.
All that and some brilliant Pam one-liners made this an episode to remember …

It is little surprise when reality pop, manipulated by Simons Cowell and Fuller, dominates the pop charts in the runup to Christmas. But with August not even out, their iron grip is tightening earlier than ever this year.
ITV alumni look to be holding the singles and album double this weekend. Original Pop Idol winner Will Young is expected to score a No 1 album with his new collection Echoes, while former X Factor runner-up Olly Murs should achieve his second No 1 single with Heart Skips A Beat.
Meanwhile, Joe McElderry, who beat Murs but lost out in the real world, having been dropped by Cowell after failing to fly commercially, is likely to score a No 2 album. McElderry's resurgence comes after winning another ITV talent show, Popstar to Operastar.
Tomorrow's album chart will be the »

London, Aug 24: Liam Gallagher has dropped his High Court writ against his estranged brother Noel after the older sibling offered an olive branch during a webchat.
Noel is said to have apologised during a web chat for the launch of his new single 'The Death Of You and Me', which brought about an end to all the differences between the two brothers.
Oasis frontman Liam heard Noel admit that his brother's doctor's note for the cancelled V festival gig at Chelmsford in 2009 due to laryngitis did exist, thereby urging him to move on.
"For the record, it is a fact that he was diagnosed with laryngitis. »
