'Two and a Half Men' - 'Tinkle Like A Princess' Recap

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 2nd 2010 9:02AM
Holy hoochey-mama! Looked like the old Charlie Harper was back by the time all was said and done. For a while there, it wasn't a certainty. Charlie had all the symptoms of a Woody Allen schlemiel as 'Two and a Half Men' ventured into territory that seemed out of kilter. It was like the Kubler-Ross five stages of grief. Fortunately, acceptance for Charlie was just a bender away. More on that and the $18,000, too, after the jump.

Danny DeVito on Always Sunny exploits and Christmas DVD - TCA Report

Danny DeVito and the gang from Always Sunny
Before I spoke to Katey Sagal at last night's FOX party, I ran into Danny DeVito, who was conveniently wearing a It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia hat, just in case people had no idea what show he was there to promote.

We talked a little about Asbury Park, NJ, where he grew up, but then the subject turned to his current show, and the new holiday-themed DVD subtitled It's A Very Sunny Christmas. The DVD will be a never-before-seen feature-length episode where the gang spread Christmas cheer with their usual blend of inappropriate humor, uncomfortable situations and general mayhem.

DeVito mentioned the DVD as he talked about the exploits his character, Frank Reynolds, will be up to this year. "It's off the charts. I'll tell you, Oh my god. There's an intervention; I'm over the top they come in and intervene. I go to a frat house and have lots of fun there. We have a Christmas DVD coming out that's off the charts, doing everything we can't do on television. It's like basically sex, and drugs and rock 'n' roll. Anything we want."

ABC Family's Greek -- is it really that easy to get a drink?

ABC Family's Greek - Dobbler's
One of my guilty pleasures this summer has been catching ABC Family's Greek on Monday nights. It has its flaws for sure (like last night's episode, which was downright silly), but it's laid-back fun. However, one thing that I can't get over is how easy these college kids, most who are not even in their Senior year yet, are able to so easily enter a bar and drink up to the point of total drunkenness.

Moral Orel: Nature Part Two (season finale)

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 14th 2007 10:03AM

moral orel(S02E20)

This is an early review.

This two-parter really made me hate Clay Puppington, and I don't think I can say that about any other cartoon character. Hell, Cartman from South Park has done tons of horrible things, even indirectly killed people, but watching Clay treat Orel so poorly and so dismissively made me want to break off his frail, wire-supported arms.

Drink like Danny DeVito!

by Anna Johns, posted May 1st 2007 4:41PM
danny devitoDanny DeVito has found a way to capitalize on his headline-grabbing appearance on The View last year. Remember the video? DeVito was pretty obviously drunk while on the morning gabfest, and admitted that he was still pretty tipsy from a wild night with George Clooney. Specifically, DeVito said he was drunk on limoncellos, shots of a sweet, lemon liqueur.

Now DeVito has decided to sell his own line of limoncello, called Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello, which he launched at a wine festival in Florida yesterday. According to Wikipedia, limoncello is pretty easy to make as it's just sugar, water, lemon rinds and alcohol. Danny's is 60-proof, which means nothing to me since I don't know anything about alcohol.

I always like when a celebrity can make a joke of themselves, but this drunken incident on The View didn't really seem like that big of a deal. Or, has my memory just faded because all sorts of other horrible things have come from The View since then?

Check out the jingle. It's hilarious!

FOX Reality creates first Web-only series

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 17th 2007 1:01PM

wineThe FOX Reality channel has created a new series specifically for the Web called Nightclub Confessions. Each episode will run about ten minutes and feature club goers in Southern California revealing deep, dark secrets. The episodes will begin airing on the FOX Reality channel's site on May 30.

If you liked HBO's Taxicab Confessions, it sounds like you'll probably also enjoy this series, which pretty much uses the same format of getting drunk people to speak candidly about themselves. Of course, these people are made aware that their confessions may be shown on both the Web and television (an hour-long version of the series culled from the Web clips will air on the FOX Reality channel on June 30). The Web version of the series will be somewhat racier than what makes it to television.

FOX Reality will be installing the confession booths in select bars and nightclubs this weekend.

Prison Break actor charged with manslaughter, DUI

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 9th 2007 10:29AM
lane garrisonLane Garrison faces prison time for a car crash that killed a 17-year old girl. Garrison, who played "Tweener" in 14 episodes of Prison Break, was apparently drunk when he crashed into a tree in December. Riding in his SUV with him were two 15-year old girls and a 17-year old girl, who died in the accident. Garrison is also being charged with injuring the other two passengers and providing them with alcohol. For all his infractions, the maximum sentence he could face is six years, eight months in prison.

Garrison is currently out on $100,000 bail and is banned from driving, drinking or visiting bars. Garrison's lawyer says a plea bargain is in the works, where the actor will "accept responsibility for his conduct."

Celebrities + drunk driving = news?

by Paul Goebel, posted Feb 20th 2007 10:29AM

Bearded Mel GibsonThis week Ray Liotta was arrested for drinking and driving. With so many stars getting taken in for DWI's it makes you think that maybe Hollywood is suffering from a severe alcohol problem. But upon closer look, it's clear that folks like Ray Liotta, Nicole Richie and Mel Gibson enjoy paraphrasing the popular bumper sticker... They get drunk, they drive, their expensive lawyers and publicists get them off the hook and do damage control...no problem!

Did Rachael Ray bad mouth Oprah?

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 24th 2007 1:21PM

rachael rayTMZ reports that back in 2005, a drunken Rachael Ray made some ugly remarks about Oprah, the woman who helped launch Ray into the spotlight. Then again, Ray may have done no such thing. That's pretty much the gist of the article. Careful readers will note that none of the sources are named, so I guess that's why it's called celebrity gossip. If Ray did indeed get drunk at an event in Century City and made racist remarks about the portrait of Oprah from Beloved that hangs in Harpo Studios, or referred to Angelina Jolie as a "backdoor c**t," it was muttered before people started filming embarrassing celeb moments with their camera phones. Now all we have is speculation about what someone may or may not have said two years ago.

If it makes Ray feel any better, I once called my little brother a "stupid doody idiot head" when I was five. I've always regretted saying it, and I hope no one was taping me, because I'd really hate for something I said when I was drunk to haunt me years down the road.

I was an alcoholic five year old. I forgot to mention that.

Rosie vs. Trump is out. Rosie vs. Simon is in.

by Julia Ward, posted Jan 23rd 2007 2:05PM
Simon Cowell poolThe wheel of publicity spins round and round. On January 18th, Rosie O'Donnell complained on The View that American Idol's judges were too harsh. She described them as "three millionaires, one probably intoxicated." Really, much like her remarks about Trump's hair, that description of the show doesn't seem that far out of line with the general public's perception of American Idol or, at the very least, of Paula Abdul. Nevertheless, Simon Cowell felt compelled to reply. Rosie's remarks "smacked of 'I'll have a go at Donald Trump - good for ratings. That died down, so now I'll do American Idol.' Next week it will be, 'I don't like the dresses on Dancing with the Stars.'"

Now, Rosie is on a show whose entire conceit is to gab it up on the pop culture and current events of the day so it really shouldn't surprise anyone that she moved from Trump's Miss America moralism to American Idol. I just hope Rosie doesn't respond to Cowell with some weird comment. That's one playground news cycle nobody needs. It would be so much easier if he'd just pull her pigtails, and she'd just step on his GoBot.

Paula Abdul's "technical difficulties" - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 12th 2007 7:13PM
paula abdul seattleWith each new season of American Idol, Paula Abdul seems to lose a little more of her ability to communicate. The woman hasn't spoken in a complete sentence for years. If she makes it to season 10 of American Idol, she'll be communicating by waving her arms and grunting.

This year, I think we're in for a doozy on Paula's part. She was on a Seattle FOX affiliate this morning to promote the next season and, well, and there's no doubt about it: the girl was slurring her speech. Like, drunk-off-her-ass slurring. And she was leaning back and forth a lot, like Stevie Wonder at the piano. A rep for Abdul told People that there were "technical difficulties" with the sound dropping out, presumably of her ear piece.

Judge for yourself after the jump:

Sex and the City bad influence on Lohan

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 28th 2006 3:46PM

Lindsay LohanYou just can't make this stuff up. (You might have to register first to read the article.)

Lindsay Lohan says that the girls of Sex and the City are to blame for the way she lives her life, that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall and the others taught her that settling down with one man wasn't the thing to do, that she should play the field and sleep with a bunch of different people.

Also: she drinks a lot because she used to watch Cheers all the time, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous made her crave a big mansion, and CSI made her want to become an expert in forensics.

The most terrifying news I got from the article above is that Lohan has a younger sister, Ali, who is also becoming an actress. Oh, great. I guess the gossip columnists and bloggers will be kept in business for at least another ten years. Parents, lock up your sons.

12 oz. Mouse -- I've been converted

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 1st 2006 2:05PM

12 oz mouseI've said it here many times, and I'll say it again. I would much rather have Adult Swim offer a variety of choices even if that means some of the shows don't turn me on personally, as opposed to only offering programs I enjoy. Furthermore, Adult Swim does what many networks don't do, which is allow shows time to find an audience. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't, but the end result is more choices, and that's never a bad thing.
