I can’t say it enough, how proud I am of my friend Dan Levy who created Schitt’s Creek. And wrote it. And stars. And is the showrunner. PS. Dan is only 31. I hate him! While I obsessively watch him, week after week, because I need everything he wears in every f-cking episode. Next time you hear someone say “black is boring”? Introduce them to the way Dan styles a character. Full Story

If Madonna thinks he’s hot, are you still giving me sh-t when I say I think he’s hot? Probably. But I’m telling you, if you just look at him and you don’t think about WHO HE IS, he’s hot. No? Fine. We will agree to disagree. Anyway, time for JB’s weekly appearance on Ellen. Full Story

Finally. A legitimate challenger to McGosling, Rachel and Ryan! People kept asking Genie Bouchard about Justin Bieber during her breakthrough year. Sh-t, even I asked her about it.
