  • Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi

    There's controversy brewing in Italy these days, and it has nothing to do with Berlusconi or teenage mistresses. No, the cause of the consternation is the return of the Italians' long-lost cousins: the cast of MTV's Jersey Shore. Things didn't get any calmer on Monday, when one of the gang -- former Bumpit aficionado Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi -- had a run-in with the law. By which we mean she plowed a police car. According to news reports, Snooki and her buddy Deena Nicole Cortese were driving behind a police vehicle, which was their escort for the day. For reasons yet to be explained, Snooks...

    Tipsy Supermodel Estella Warren Needs Help Getting Home: Videogame

    If you were paying attention last week, you probably heard about model/actress Estella Warren's run-in with the law (which happened shortly after her run-in with a row of parked cars). Well, if you thought you'd heard the last of Ms. Warren, think again, because TMZ has made her the subject of a...

    Video: New Ad For Thor Parodies Volkswagen (But Leaves Acura Out In The Cold)

    Andy Warhol famously said that in the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. Thanks to the heady combination of reality TV and the internet, he's been proven right. The culture of instant celebrity is both a blessing and a curse. On the curse side: Rebecca Black and Speidi (who may have...

    New Fast Five Trailer: 2011 Dodge Charger Proves That Car Chases Make Movies Better

    Every so often, movie directors find themselves in a bind. Maybe their budgets get slashed. Maybe their scripts aren't quite as awesome as they first thought. Maybe they wake up and realize, "Holy crap, we cast VINCE VAUGHN." That's when they start scrambling, throwing everything they can at the...

    Charlie Sheen Shifts To An Even Smaller Screen -- As An App Developer

    Like the streets of his beloved Hollywood Hills, Charlie Sheen's life is full of twists and turns. The actor has a reputation for being a party boy, and his tumultuous life has been well-documented in tabloids and tweets. But Sheen's recent meltdown gave him the opportunity to reinvent himself --...

    Yikes: Kate Middleton Comes To Wed In Assaulted Rolls-Royce, Leaves In Di's Wedding Carriage

    Kate Middleton will arrive at Westminster Abbey for her April 29 wedding in the very same 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI that was recently attacked by protesters angry with Prince Chuckles and Camilla. And she'll leave the ceremony in the same wedding carriage that carted the late Princess Diana off...

  • The Lincoln Lawyer

    Good news: At a time when corporate marketing budgets are merely a shadow of what they once were, Ford will get a free ride in the new film, The Lincoln Lawyer. A Lincoln spokesman says that the company didn't spend a dime on product placement for the movie. Bad news: The Lincoln Lawyer features the Lincoln Town Car, which will drive off to that Showroom in the Sky later this year. The model isn't even widely available now, except as a fleet buy or special purchase. Worse news: The "gripping thriller" (Lionsgate's words, not ours) stars Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Phillipe, and Marisa Tomei...

    Relive The Thrill Of The 'Bullitt' Car Chase, At 1:32 Scale

    At last count, there were at least five reasons to love the internet: 1. [REDACTED] 2. Cat videos. 3. The Oatmeal. 4. The lovely and talented High Gear Media family. 5. The opportunity it provides crazy obsessive people to show off their handiwork. And in service of #5 comes news that graphic...

    VIDEO: Camaro With 30-Inch Rims

    Not much to say about this one, other than the fact that the "Underground Rim King" has outfitted a Camaro with 30-inch rims, and paraded it around. If you've ever wanted to see a Camaro on 30-inchers, take a peek at the video below. With that, all we can say is "enjoy." [Jalopnik, Underground Rim...

    Illinois Teenager Builds Snowstang

    Taking advantage of the recent snowy weather in the northern part of the country, 16-year-old Tom Murphy of Manteno, Illinois, decided to build a Mustang convertible out of the snow in hopes of making the point that he would like a real Mustang convertible for his first car. Murphy's dad joined in...

  • Jennifer Aniston on The View
    Jennifer Aniston, The Accidental Honda Spokesmodel

    Jennifer Aniston dropped by The View several days ago, and the interweb has been in a minor tizzy every since. Not because of anything she said, of course; Aniston isnt' exactly the kind to raise eyebrows with wacko pronouncements. (You want that, you book Jennifer Love Hewitt. Even better...

    Rahm Emanuel Saves Chicago From Winter Storm, Knocks Katie Couric Down A Peg

    On Tuesday, Vanity Fair's Juli Weiner published an article entitled, "Rahm Emanuel Should Be Personally Rescuing People During the Chicago Blizzard". (You have to hand it to VF: they know how to put the "b" in "subtle".) Weiner's argument was basically that the mayoral candidate needed to get out...

  • Kenny G from Audi's new campaign for Super Bowl XLV

    Not so long ago, Kenny G was a major threat to the civilized world. Sleepy, innocuous notes rolled out of his saxophone and onto the world's airwaves, lulling us all into a false sense of comfort and security. Things could've gone terribly wrong, but Kenny's unearthly talent was, in fact, his own undoing: his music was so relaxing that when Kenny finally got around to issuing orders for world domination, we were all too sleepy to obey. It took Ace of Base to wake us up again. A decade or so later, Kenny G has returned -- this time, thankfully, as a punch line. Audi has tapped Mr. G to play a...

    Career Counseling For Oscar Night Losers

    "Oh, it's an honor just to be nominated." That's what they say on Oscar night, all the nominees in their borrowed finery, shuffling past the paparazzi and self-proclaimed fashion police. (Seriously, why does Ryan Seacrest get to comment on anyone's outfit?) But deep inside, we know they're nervous...

    2011 Detroit Auto Show Celebrity Sightings (And What They Mean For You!)

    Pundits say that the economy is on the mend and that customers want to spend. (Sadly, they don't often say it in rhyme.) But while the recession may be behind us, there's still something not-quite-right about this year's Detroit Auto Show. Sure, we've seen fog machines and the mandatory strobe...

    It's been a busy week on the news feeds -- thanks in part to the many, many gizmos dropping trou at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    11 Celebrity Predictions For 2011

    Now that the confetti has settled (and the stomachs, too), it's time to get down to serious business: psychic predictions for the coming year. We brewed ourselves a pot of coffee, blended in the dregs from the vuvuzela that doubled as a champagne flute on Friday night, and chugged it with a couple...

  • Karolina Kurkova and the Mercedes-Benz CLS

    It's hard to believe that another year has come and gone. It seems like just yesterday we were writing about Lindsay Lohan's trip to rehab, and now, we're writing about...well, Lindsay Lohan's return to rehab. There's something comforting about that consistency, don't you think? And so, in the retrospective spirit that invariably comes at the end of the year, here's a totally official and scientific list of your favorite posts from 2010. Just to make it interesting, we've put them in reverse order. Is the suspense killing you yet? #10 Video: Victoria's Secret Angel Karolina Kurkova Vamps With...

Last time we saw Bret Michaels...well, we haven't actually seen BM around here, though we did catch him taking a spin at the Tonys. Apparently, both have recovered well enough to help shill the 2011...

    Video: OMG Fabio Is Alive And He's Hawking Electric Cars

    The life of a model/actor is hard. "Oh, right", you say, "lying on a sofa and staring vacantly into a bank of cameras is way tougher than military service or manual labor or having no job at all." But hey, we've seen All About Eve and Valley of the Dolls and America's Next Top Model. Like Gina...

    Sometimes, we get press releases that make us die a little inside. We'll receive an email about new air-fresheners or nutria-trimmed seat covers or those seriously creepy car lashes, and it'll make us super-sad -- not because of the products themselves, but because some poor PR newbie, fresh out of...

    Ke$ha Sounds Pretty Hungry

    Earlier this week -- maybe Wednesday? -- Ke$ha was filmed leaving some restaurant or club or other place with a well-stocked bar and a velvet rope. Ordinarily, we'd be inclined to rag on the alleged singer and her orthographically challenged ways. However: (a) The girl has apparently eschewed Range...
