Y’all, Keke Palmer is about to make history by becoming the youngest talk show host of all time on a new daily BET show. This also marks the first time I will be watching BET on the daily. Someone in programming there is doing something right, because Being Mary Jane is also eminently watchable, and now this. Full Story

Have you exercised your nostalgia muscles this early on a Wednesday? No? Get ready. This is an interview about the series finale of Dawson’s Creek in a series of creators talking about finales. It's very enjoyable.  Kevin Williamson has always been honest about how writing is fun and also hard for him, how he has to get deeply involved in series and then leave them. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

"I won't be doing the new show in character, so we'll all get to find out how much of him was me. I'm looking forward to it." – What Stephen Colbert told The New York Times about succeeding David Letterman on Late Night. Apparently there were a lot of people who called for the job the day Letterman announced he was retiring. Colbert was one of them. And when CBS was interested too, he insisted that they clear it with Dave so that he could get Letterman’s blessing. Letterman obliged. At least that’s the story they’re giving the public.

SO curious what Colbert looks like without the “character”. That was probably the most common question yesterday, right? Who IS Stephen Colbert? And can the real Stephen Colbert handle the standard operating procedures that come with network television? He’s pretty selective about the guest content on The Colbert Report.  Read Full Intro

Man, that happened FAST. Kind of makes you think some wheels were already turning, and when, in the wake of David Letterman announcing his retirement the entire nation yelled as one, IT SHOULD BE COLBERT, they cemented a deal that was already in the works. Full Story

Saturday, April 5, 2014 Dear BFF Anna Kendrick, Tonight you hosted SNL! I was a little worried about your sartorial choices, because I love you so much but you know that you sometimes have odd clothing situations.   But you started the show in a little girl princess dress that actually works. Full Story

One of the very first pieces I ever wrote for this site was about Mandy Moore. It was called What Will It Take and I remember because A) We were in Paris, and B) because of the look Lainey gave me like “good luck with this uphill battle trying to get people onside”. Full Story

Yesterday during the taping of his show, David Letterman stunned his audience by announcing his retirement. He’s been on late night television for thirty-two years, the last twenty-one of which have been behind the desk at The Late Show with David Letterman. He broke Johnny Carson’s record in 2013 to become the longest-running late night host, and he stuck around long enough to outlast his rival, Jay Leno, which I’m sure is not coincidental. Full Story

Here’s Katie Holmes on the NY set of her new television pilot, now titled Dangerous Liaisons. When I first wrote about this – click here – that’s what I mentioned when I learned of the show’s premise: Ann (Katie) is a sweet socialite who is organises charity balls and would never hurt anyone until Rufus Sewell and his wife make a bet to bring her down and ruin her marriage, prompting her to start learning how to play the game. Full Story

When Nicole Richie's AOL webseries #CandidlyNicole came out, I was all for it (see here and here for a refresher). At the time, I wrote that all the things that she's done in her career - bratty socialite, BFF of Ebola Hilton, fashion designer - are things we (and by "we" I mean those of us who like our celebrities with a bit more cache) frown upon. Full Story

The summer of 2007 was HOT. One of the great things about Toronto  summers is that they are sultry all day and all night. The temperature doesn’t change at all, and so days and nights flow into each other in a way that’s gorgeous and exciting. The other thing I remember is that my friend Matt got us watching How I Met Your Mother at lunchtimes. Full Story

THERE ARE SO MANY SPOILERS. YOU KNOW THIS. THIS IS THE JUMP AFTER WHICH THERE ARE SPOILERS. SERIOUS ONES. A friend of mine recently started watching The Good Wife. She’s behind – just finishing Season One. So when Sunday night happened, I told her to stay off Twitter (and seriously, Lara, go read something else). Full Story

Sarah Michelle Gellar posted this photo of herself with husband Freddie Prinze Jr yesterday on Twitter to celebrate 200,000 followers. Look at his face! That’s the Zack Siler expression! It gave me a pang of nostalgia for the 90s. They’ve been married 12 years now, a Hollywood eternity. Full Story

Here’s someone we haven’t heard from in a while. Check out Alexander Skarsgard who IS NOT DATING ELLEN PAGE, though there was a very hardcore group of people who desperately wanted to believe this, leaving the gym yesterday. True Blood usually premieres in June. They’re almost half way through shooting Season 7, the final season of the series. Full Story
