Let’s start with Carly Rae Jepsen who was the big winner last night at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto. As I’ve been mentioning, mostly in Smutty Tingles lately, I am not tired of that song yet. Still. Not even close. In fact, all I want to do is listen to it over and over again especially when I’m running which is why I have to resist the urge to just have it on repeat on my iPod. Full Story

There's a light “black market” trade on pilot scripts during the early months of the year.  As scripts are written and as they hope to get it to pilot and, later, a series order, the scripts get passed around, openly but unofficially, and everyone, including people who have nothing to do with the shows themselves, forms their opinions. Full Story

Here are Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds out in New York earlier this week picking up some groceries. Is that pie crust? Looks like it says Pie Crust, or Pie Something, on the box.

Before we get into this though, a quick word on the bullsh-t Pacquio/Bradley decision? Is the WBO bankrolled by the Chinese Communist government? It stanks just as badly of corruption and foul. Ok so last night in New York, Chris Brown and Drake both show up at a club called WIP. By the end of the evening, Brown’s chin was cut open, supposedly by a member of Drake’s entourage. Full Story
