Happy 4th of July weekend, everyone! You're probably at the beach, grilling meat over an open flame or lighting fireworks right now, but if you're not, check out these videos and vote for your favorite in our weekly poll. Then go outside or watch a baseball game!
Last week, Ben Bailey from 'Cash Cab' was in the bathroom when he won Best Gameshow host at the Daytime Emmys. This week's BET Awards gaffe tops that: a contest winner was reading the winner of the People's Choice Award, and everything went haywire. First she announced Chris Brown had won, then Rihanna, and finally Drake, who came on stage to accept the award. A BET rep later said the mistake was his fault, and as it turns out, Brown was the correct winner. Awkwarrrrd.
If Anna Graceman is next Jackie Evancho, then 'America's Got Talent' contestant Cindy Chang may be the next Susan Boyle. A 42-year-old homemaker, Chang had always wanted to be a singer, but her parents dissauded her from trying. After she rocked the house with an amazing operatic performance, they might be questioning their advice.
After rumors swirled that 'Two and a Half Men' would actually kill of Charlie Sheen's character, Jimmy Kimmel hit the streets of LA asking kids for advice on how the show should do it. Suggestions included throwing him in a fire ant pit, blowing him up with a bazooka and a knuckle sandwich. Mildly disturbing and hilarious, kids!
Political reporter Mark Halperin put his foot in his mouth and paid the price for it Wednesday on 'Morning Joe,' when he said President Obama acted like "kind of a d***" at his press conference. Halperin was suspended immediately by MSNBC; the clip is fascinating on a number of levels, particularly watching how everyone else on set reacts as they realize what he said is way out of bounds.
Every now and again, a clip comes along that perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the 'Real Housewives' franchise. This clip of Sonja discovering that her toilet -- which has been clogged for two weeks -- is clogged with a Blackberry, is one of them. What else can I say here? Let's hope she upgraded to an iPhone.
