Jon & Kate Plus 8: Kate & Jon Gosselin in Happier TimesFINALLY, something smart outta the mouths of these two!

Jon and Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 have posted a statement on the TLC website today:

“During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible. We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many. Thank you.”

It seems the separated pair has finally come to their senses!

I really think Jon and Kate should’ve kept quiet all along.  I keep picturing their twins and sextuplets growing up and googling their parents, only to find all this hatespeech!

For the love of blog, no more noise, Gosselins!

Spotted in San Francisco: Cloris Leachman!

Posted by KAT in Dancing With The Stars, The Facts of Life

The Facts of Life: Cloris Leachman, George Clooney, & Co.OMG, you guys!  These Square Eyes just had a REAL LIFE celebrity sighting!

SPOTTED: Across the street from San Francisco’s Boulevard restaurant, CLORIS LEACHMAN!

This national treasure was getting into her town car whilst telling her driver, “I don’t wanna go home!”

A celebrated actress of film, television, and stage, Leachman is most recently known for her wacky stint as a celebrity contestant on Dancing With the Stars.

I, however, will always know her as Mrs. Garrett’s sister Beverly Ann Stickle on the hit ’80s series, The Facts of Life - see cast photo on your right (and yes, that IS a young George Clooney).

Further research reveals Clo was in town for the Gay Pride Parade here in SF, which went down this past weekend.

Shucks, maybe next time I’ll get up the nerve to say hello and tell her how much I love ClorisLineClo looked so feeble and perturbed, I couldn’t muster up the courage to get all up in her grill.

Daisy of Love: OMG! London Calling!

Posted by KAT in Daisy of Love

Man oh man, Daisy of Love just keeps getting better and better.  Last night’s episode had me convinced that DoL is the best reality series of all time.  Admit it, you agree.  Well done, VH1.

The episode started innocently enough.  Daisy’s diary announced that Flex and Chi Chi would be going on a date that day.  They hit the road and drive somewhere in the middle of the desert, where they’ll be off-roading for the day.  Each dude takes his turn taking Daisy for a spin.  Flex drives fast and crazy, which Daisy says turns her on (grody!).  Chi Chi predictably drives at a conservative pace, so as not to scare Daisy.  Snooze cruise - LITERALLY!

Then it’s Daisy’s turn to drive, and she ends up flipping the dune buggy!  This is why we love her, am I right?

Daisy of Love: Daisy & Flipped Dune Buggy

Now back at home, it’s 12 Pack / Dave and Sinister’s turn to hang with Daisy.  She sits them down at dinner, where Sinister tries his hardest to act confident to woo Daisy12 Pack / Dave, on the other hand, makes some weird references to heartbreaker London, the hottie contestant who had bounced on Daisy weeks prior cuz of shizz getting too real.  Daisy is visibly weirded out - but this doesn’t stop her from asking 12 Pack / Dave to join her up in her room for a nightcap.

Predictably, Sinister goes apeshizz over not being picked to make out and starts knocking over bunk beds and stuff.  Lame!

Up at the door of Daisy’s room, Daisy and 12 Pack / Dave have to step across Chi Chi to get inside her room.  He’s waiting to get some more time with her.  Daisy politely tells him goodnight, and takes 12 Pack / Dave inside to smooch. Chi Chi then straight up decides to get a pillow and blanket set up at the foot of the door to wait for Daisy’s make out sesh to end so he can hang with her.  What seem like hours pass and, after a while, he gives up.  Oy.  That man has got no self-respect.

Daisy of Love: Chi Chi Sleeping at the Foot of Daisy's Door

The next morning, Riki Rachtman lets us in on a little secret: he’s been in touch with London!  Apparently, our man London (my original pick for Daisy, might I add) decided leaving the show was a bad idea.  He still has feelings for Daisy, and had only left in the first place on account of being too weirded out with the reality TV thing - understandable.  Riki decides to let London come back to talk to Daisy - not because he thinks he’s the one for her, but because he sees that the situation needs some closure.  Good man, that Riki.

So!  London returns! And Daisy gets lost in his puppy dog eyes and agrees to consider letting him back into the house!  She tells all the guys, who are NOT happy with the whole situation.  Flex wonders why they don’t just bring back all 20 guys and just keep the cycle going.  Sinister refers to London as a “local band douchebag.”  Chi Chi doesn’t mind much and invites London to sleep in his room.  Ugh.

Chi Chi then goes up to Daisy’s room to let him know he supports her and all her decisions and blah blah blah will this guy give it a rest already?

Elimination time! Daisy tells London that, even though he doesn’t deserve it, he gets a chain and will be staying to fight the good fight for her affection.

Daisy of Love: London, Flex, Chi Chi, Sinister, 12 Pack / Dave

Next up, 12 Pack / Dave gets the first chain, then Flex.  Then it’s time to decide between BFFs Chi Chi and SinisterDaisy decides to give Chi Chi the boot, because she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship, and because she sees him as more of a good friend.  Duh squared, am I right?

WOW!  So still in the running, we’ve got 12 Pack / Dave, Flex, Sinister, and…. London!  I think we can probs all stop watching now, cuz it’s…

Daisy of Love: London

London FTW!

SPOTTED: Gossip Girl-Inspired Anna Sui Collection

Posted by KAT in Gossip Girl

June 26th, 2009, 04:23 PM

Wahoo!  A few weeks ago I came across news that acclaimed designer Anna Sui would be designing a low-cost fashion line for Target inspired by Gossip Girl.  As a huge fan of Blair Waldorf’s wardrobe, I’ve been squealing to myself over this ever since.

Well today, the look book has been leaked!  Let’s take a look at a sampling of these Gossip Girl-inspired threads:

Blair Waldorf:

Anna Sui for Target: Blair WaldorfAnna Sui for Target: Blair Waldorf

Serena van der Woodsen:

Anna Sui for Target: Serena van der WoodsenAnna Sui for Target: Serena van der Woodsen

Jenny Humphrey:

Anna Sui for Target: Jenny HumphreyAnna Sui for Target: Jenny Humphrey

Vanessa Abrams:

Anna Sui for Target: Vanessa AbramsAnna Sui for Target: Vanessa Abrams

I’ve gotta say, I LOVE the Blair looks and will absolutely be picking up more than one piece once they hit stores.  Serena’s looks are too conservative for her and pretty dull, in my opinion.   Jenny’s dresses are too Hot Topic-y and look sort of cheap (a disservice to fashion-loving Li’l J!).  The Vanessa pieces are strangely orange and almost…vulgar?

Pretty decent showing overall, though, I’d say, despite not being 100% true to their characters.

The Anna Sui-for-Target Gossip Girl line will supposedly be in stores September 13 through October 17.  Get ‘em while they’re hot!

Michael Jackson Lends His Voice to The Simpsons

Posted by KAT in The Simpsons

June 26th, 2009, 10:42 AM

Michael JacksonAs Erin mentioned, we here at Square Eyes have been collectively mourning the loss of the King of Pop since news of his death broke yesterday afternoon.  I’ve been trying to come up with an appropriate tribute, and I think I’ve finally got something.

In 1991, Michael Jackson guest starred on The Simpsons, playing a big, goofy lookin’ patient named Leon Kompowski who Homer meets in a mental institution.

Leon/Michael goes on to visit the Simpson home and help Bart write a beautiful birthday song for his sister, “Happy Birthday Lisa.”  It really is a lovely song, one any sister would be get all verklempt over.

For some reason, I could only find weird choppety clips of the scene, but you’ll definitely get the picture.  Just try to hold back the tears whilst watching!

Yup.  Pretty amazing.

You can watch the episode in full here on blinkx Remote.  It’s the first episode of the third season, titled “Stark Raving Dad.”  It’s a great one!

All hail the King of Pop!

So You Think You Can Dance 5: Top 16 Elimination

Posted by ERIN in So You Think You Can Dance

June 25th, 2009, 11:06 PM

Asuka Kondoh so you think you can dancejonathan platero so you think you can danceIn the spirit of dance for tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance recap, we at Square Eyes join the world by giving a big R.I.P., “Shhhaa-mon!” and “Heeeee-heee!” to Michael Jackson. Much respect from Kat and I.

But life moves on and for this entry, it’s onto the results and videos from tonight’s elimination (clips from MJ’s):

First of all, the show opened with a group number that actually made sense. A “No noo! Too sexy!!” dance where everyone was copping a feel and that fused Ballroom and Hip Hop dancing to “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” by Pitbull. Thanks to Dmitry Chaplin and Tabitha & Napoleon for a simple storyline that I could follow. I’m still waiting for Mia Michaels to explain last week’s group number. (VIDEO)

Wow, so I guess they filmed this not long after MJ died today because Nigel speaks about Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson’s recent deaths and pays tribute to them. They go to break showing “Thriller” although it just left me wanting to see more than a few seconds - how about instead we fill the hour with Michael Jackson music videos? I digress. (VIDEO)

After commercial we dive right in and learn that (rightfully) Asuka & Vitolio are in the Bottom 3 and must DANCE FOR THEIR LIVES. Likewise, Janette & Brandon, Randi & Evan, Melissa & Ade and Jeanine & Phillip (pout) are all safe. I agree, even though I am not really a Phillip fan - they were much better than Karla & Jonathan and Caitlin & Jason last night. Sorry Jeanine, hopefully next week you can claw your way out from under Chbeeb’s shadow and get some recognition for your skills. (VIDEO)

The remaining 3 couples are up next - 2 will be in danger. Last night I said it should be (love ‘em as I do) Karla & Jonathan and Caitlin & Jason and… I’m RIGHT! That means new couple Kupono & Kayla are safe to run to the pit of “we are the champions” contestants this week. I’m relieved that all of my favorite couples are safe! (VIDEO)

Meanwhile, as our Bottom 3 prep to DANCE FOR THEIR LIVES, we watch a group of pint-sized (and adolescent) tykes called the Rage Boyz Crew do a Hip Hop routine choreographed by Tiffany Burton. Cat squeals a lot over how adorable the leading lil boy is and I agree! Was the dancing phenomenal? No, but they were energetic and entertaining to watch and that’s good enough for me. (VIDEO)

Ok, let’s watch the solos! First up is Asuka who does a rather sloppy-frantic ballroom solo. In general, I feel she’s the weakest of the Bottom 3 gals, and she didn’t redeem herself  tonight. Next is Vitolio, who I thought was fab. I just love his jumps and extensions. So…sinewy. Then it’s Karla with an interesting and compelling Contemporary piece, although her nerves seem to surface because she wobbles on some spins (hey, there’s the standing split move she always does again!). Finally, it’s dimpled-delight Jonathan who has a tough task with salsa-ing solo through his number. Actually, I was pretty impressed and thought he didn’t *just* look like a Ballroom dancer - he mixed things up and did some tumbling too. (VIDEO)

Commercial, yada yada, and our final Bottom couple is up! Caitlin does her usual limber-acrobatics-filled solo, which is no longer as novel to me as in her first audition…but I think she’s better than Asuka. Our last solo of the night comes from golden boy Jason. I don’t remember much of it. A lot of jumps and rolling around on the floor going on. I’m still not on-board with him and think his solo was the weakest. (VIDEO)

Off go the judges to deliberate and we get a performance by The Veronicas singing “Take Me On the Floor”. And this is me fast forwarding. (VIDEO)

ELIMINATED: Asuka Kondoh and Jonathan Platero (VIDEO)

Well, I’m cool with this elimination and - hello! - as I dared to dream last night, we now have Karla and Vitolio as new partners! Fingers crossed that they’ll be a good match and can explode and amaze us next week! They’ve got the potential!

Cat announces that on Monday, FOX will (for the first time everrrr) re-broadcast the American Idol Top 13 episode featuring the music of Michael Jackson. Hmmm, is it a touching tribute or shameless excuse for ad dollars? Discuss.

I’m gonna go listen to the sweet sounds of “I’ll Be There“, close my eyes and shake my head in mourning. Peace y’all.

Lou Diamond Phillips FTW; Speidi’s Lost Pizza Ad

For those of you keeping score…

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Outta Here!: Lou Diamond Phillips

It’s Lou Diamond Phillips for the win on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

But the real winners last night were the American public, who were treated to an other visit from Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who returned to the jungles of Costa Rica all the way from The Hills to see the show off.

“They have increased my value of celebrity, I found out, so I owe them all greatly,” said Spencer.

And as an added bonus, a Pizza Hut advertisement featuring Speidi have surfaced on the Internets!  The following clip was supposed to air during I’m a Celebrity, but the pair didn’t last on the show long enough for the ad to make sense.  Here’s a couple of dummies hawking a pizza pie:

Thanks to Pink is the New Blog for uncovering this gem.

What’s next for Spencer and HeidiNothing to do with E!, that’s for sure.

Michael Cera to Rule Facebook?

Posted by KAT in Arrested Development, Even Stevens

June 25th, 2009, 10:59 AM

Michael CeraThe people have a right to know: WHAT is Arrested Development’s Michael Cera up to RIGHT NOW?

He’s up for a role in the upcoming film The Social Network!  Get THIS: they’re making a movie about the rise of Facebook and our guy Michael Cera is up for the role of awkward head honcho Mark Zuckerberg!

Shia LaBeoufThe movie is to be based on an upcoming book called “The Accidental Billionaires.”  The script was supposedly written by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin, and the whole shebang will be directed by The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher.  Sounds way better than you expected, right?

Who else is up for the part besides Cera, you ask?  None other than Shia LaBeouf!  Now if you’re thinking LaBeouf’s not geeky enough, take my advice and don’t let that bad boy image he’s workin’ on fool you.  Dude was just about the hugest nerd on the planet on the Disney Channel’s Even Stevens in his youth.  Don’t forget your roots, LaBeouf!

May the awkwardest man win!  My money’s on Cera, no doubt.
