If you're looking for something freaky to watch for Halloween, Fox Reality has got you covered. Tonight they're airing the reality show There's Something About Miriam. The tagline is "6 eligible men, 1 beautiful model named Miriam, and an enormous secret reveal you never saw coming!" Spoiler alert: The secret is Miriam is actually a transgender man. The show originally aired in Britain in 2004. Above is the clip from the finale when Miriam reveals her secret to the winner.
Also on tonight, although there's no real Jewish relevance to it, is ABC's groundbreaking show Pushing Daisies. Think of it as a fun, whimsical Tim Burton movie on your TV set every Wednesday night. It's very good and in case you missed the first four episodes, ABC has posted them all online in their entirety so you can get ready for tonight's episode.
Jerry Seinfeld and the rest of the Bee Movie cast premiered their film last night in LA. With Seinfeld as a major part of it, this is sure to bee more than just a "B" movie.
Amy Winehouse gives credit to her husband for saving her life after she almost died of drug abuse. She better not be whining about her husband any time soon.
In an interview in last weekend's issue of Parade Magazine, Natalie Portman was more than happy to share some of the life lessons she has learned. Although at 26 years old, how many years of wisdom can she really have behind her?
The 41-year-old actress has apologized for making an inappropriate joke at last Friday's taping of NBC's "The Tonight Show."
Berry, who showed host Jay Leno photos of herself that she had distorted by using computer software, remarked that one snapshot — in which her nose appeared cartoonishly large — made her "look like my Jewish cousin."
After she made the comment, Leno quipped: "I'm glad you said it."
"I so didn't mean to offend anybody — and after the show I realized it could be seen as offensive, so I asked Jay to take it out, and he did," Berry told the New York Post for Tuesday's editions.
"What happened was I was backstage before the show and I have three girls who are Jewish who work for me," she said. "We were going through pictures to see which ones looked silly, and one of my Jewish friends said, `That could be your Jewish cousin!'"
"And I guess it was fresh in my mind, and it just came out of my mouth," said Berry, who was promoting her new film, "Things We Lost in the Fire."
It appears that Amy Winehouse can't help but to make headlines wherever she goes; On Saturday night she was arrested, and detained overnight in Norway for possession of marijuana.
David Copperfield has been forced to cancel upcoming shows in Southeast Asia, as the FBI search his Las Vegas warehouse, and a casino where he frequently performs. I don't think magic is going to help Copperfield out of this one.
Natalie Portman bares all in her first nude scene for the upcoming film, The Darjeeling Limited.
Sacha Baron Cohen , otherwise known as Borat, and his fiancee Isla Fisher were proud to announce the arrival of their new baby this past weekend. Hopefully the baby will grow to appreciate Cohen's sense of humor as much as we do.
Howard K. Stern went to court last week in his quest to obtain a rather large inheritance for Dannielyn.
Editor's note: In anticipation of the release this Friday of Jerry Seinfeld's much-anticipated Bee Movie, we are going to be posting Seinfeld related odds and ends all week.
The rewards that he has reaped have been substantial: Forbes recently estimated that he makes $60 million a year, primarily from his share of the syndication revenue “Seinfeld” still generates. (A representative for Mr. Seinfeld declined to confirm this figure.) His live touring and royalties from “Seinfeld” DVD sales also contribute to this sum.
Though Mr. Seinfeld may wear Nikes, he also lives in an exclusive residence on Central Park West, maintains a fabled collection of Porsches and travels to and from his stand-up dates by helicopter. In person he can be affable, but he doesn’t hide a certain earned arrogance. When one stunned onlooker at the Boathouse asked for his autograph, Mr. Seinfeld said, “Sure,” then kept walking straight to his table.
The first is called Desert Bayou which chronicles the moving of Hurricane Katrina victims to Mormon obsessed Utah and the culture clashes that ensued. Trailer highlight: Words of wisdom from Rabbi Shmuley.
The second trailer is for a documentary called For the Bible Tells Me So about the rocky relationship between religious zealots and the gay community. Looks pretty powerful.
Contrary to previous press reports, Sacha Borat Baron Cohen is not an Orthodox Jew who observes the Sabbath and holidays, as is evidenced by these pictures taken of him eating at a restaurant during the first day of Sukkot. At the very least he could've eaten in a sukkah.
Christian "media watchdog group" The Resistance is all worked up over the ultra-femme anchors of Fox News. The group's leader, Mark Dice, rants in an e-mail, "I see shorter skirts on the women of Fox News than I do on the prostitutes being arrested on cop shows." Fox responded, "We're always flattered to have everyone talking about us in one form or another."
Ok, remember way back when during the 2006 Sundance Film Festival you heard about this cool documentary film called The Tribe and it had something to do with the creator of Barbie being Jewish? Yes, that Barbie. You probably said to yourself, "Crap, I'm not going to Sundance. I'm not anywhere near Utah. When I'm ever going to see this thing?
Well, wait no more. Starting today, the film is being sold on iTunes for the bargain price of only $1.99. That's cheaper than a super grande half-caf mocha latte at Starbucks. That's cheaper than two super grande half-caf mocha latte at Starbucks.
Our favorite Jewish pop stars Evan and Jaron have just started to post a new song every Sunday for a year on their MySpace page. This first song of this cool project (known as "52 Sundays") is called "You Put Your Beautiful In Me" -- apparently a reference back to their high school days. (Full disclosure: We went to high school with them and we don't recall the corridors of Yeshiva Atlanta sounding like this -- although Evan did strum his guitar during Talmud class.) Anyway, the first single sounds pretty good. Enjoy.
