  • Find Out Which Show Was Cancelled!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    "Futurama" has been canceled . . . AGAIN.  Comedy Central has announced that they're NOT renewing it for an eighth season, so the current season is its last.

     

    The second half of Season Seven premieres June 19th.  There will be 13 more episodes before the series finale on September 4th.

     

    Fox originally canceled "Futurama" in 2003 after a four-season run.  Comedy Central brought it back in 2007, with four direct-to-DVD movies that later became its fifth season.  Since then, they've aired two additional seasons.

     

    The show's creator Matt Groening is hinting that this might NOT be the end.  He says, quote, "We've been in this situation before and it's tempting when you're doing episodes that are as good, or better, than anything you've ever done to continue doing it.

     

    "It'd be a shame if we all went our separate ways . . . we would love to continue.  We have many more stories to tell.  But if we don't, this is a really great way to go out . . . I think these episodes are the best ones we've ever done."

     

  • True Blood Spoilers

    This is via Perez Hilton. MAJOR True Blood spoilers! You have been warned!

     

    This is possibly the most unspeakable, devastating and hopefully blasphemous, false thing we have ever heard.

    But we think it's for the best that everyone be prepared, in case for some cruel reason it does turn out to come to fruition, that reports have surfaced that suggest that on the upcoming sixth season of True Blood, one of the show's most beloved characters may be meeting their untimely demise.

    SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ FURTHER UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR HEART CRUSHED INTO SMITHEREENS!

    throne

    Rumors have been circulating that in the sixth episode, Alexander Skarsgard's supremely sexy Viking Vampire Eric will meet the TRUE DEATH!

    And worse yet, there have been some SERIOUS hints that this isn't just a vicious internet lie!

    Alcide the Werewolf, AKA Joe Manganiello, recently revealed:

    “We’re getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I’m sure they will continue to do that.”

    It doesn't help, either, to know that the episode following Alexander's rumored last is titled "The Funeral!"

    SOB!

    All we can do is pray that this is some cruel trick to throw the show's fanbase off-track!

    We can't even deal with considering anything else but that right now! It would just be too much for our heart to take!

    What do U think?? Would U be sad to see Viking Vampire Eric go?!

  • Save Money By Doing THIS!

    Super lazy 28-year-olds who don't own a single pot or pan are RIGHT.  It IS a good idea to eat every single one of your meals out.

    According to a new study, based on the way food prices have gone up in the past decade, you're not really saving money by cooking at home anymore.  Eating out costs around the same . . . and might even be cheaper.

     

     photo dinner2_zps43874645.jpg

    Based on estimates from the USDA, the cost of food for a family of four has gone up 38% since 2003.  Back then, it cost $601.50-a-month to feed a family.  Now it's up to an average of $830 on the low end . . . and $1,257 on the high end.

     

    That's anywhere from about $28 to $42 per day . . . and you can probably eat cheaper than that at fast food.  Of course, it would be WAY less healthy than what you're cooking . . . but you're not saving a FORTUNE by cooking at home.

    The study also found that if you try to make a 10-ounce ribeye steak, soup, salad, and a vegetable, it costs you $2.53 more per person than eating that exact same meal at Outback Steakhouse.

    And if you make seafood alfredo, breadsticks, and salad, it's costs $3.79 per person more than eating that same meal at Olive Garden. 

  • Cat Recovering From Strange Addiction

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    A cat living on nothing but McDonald’s burgers and fries for a year and a half is now up for adoption in New Zealand.

    The black and white tom, nicknamed “Frankie” by the McDonald’s staff in a suburb of Hamilton, NZ, had been abandoned as a kitten. The hungry stray took up residence in the fast-food restaurant's parking lot, where he would beg for food from cars as they came through the drive-through. But his health started to deteriorate and the McDonald’s staff took notice.

    That's when Jessica Watson, a field officer with the local SPCA and regular customer, spotted Frankie and took him into her care. Watson said she grew worried when she saw Frankie's face was swollen and his coat was matted.  She says he became so addicted to junk food he initially refused to switch to a more nutritionally balanced diet. But after a couple of weeks of inside living and good nutrition, he’s now clear-eyed and shiny-coated. And if you think Frankie would be super-sized Watson says, “He wasn’t overweight. McDonald’s wouldn’t meet the nutritional requirements for a cat.”

  • Do You Know Who I Am!?

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    Oh no! Reese! Don't be that girl!

     

    Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth were ARRESTED early Friday morning in Atlanta.  He was popped for DUI, and they took Reese in for disorderly conduct.  Here's what happened . . .

    Police saw a car weaving sometime after midnight Friday, so they pulled it over.  Jim was driving, and Reese was riding shotgun.

    As the cops were dealing with Jim, Reese started getting impatient and agitated.  One of the cops says, quote, "She began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer."

    He says he told Reese to sit down and be quiet.  Once her husband was placed under arrest, Reese got out of the car.  The cop told her to get back in, but she said she was a U.S. citizen, and was allowed to, quote, "stand on American ground."

    So he tried to take her by the arms, but she resisted, and said, quote, "Do you know my name?"  When the cop said no, he didn't need to know her name, she replied, quote, "You're about to find out who I am . . . You are going to be on national news."

    At that point, she was cuffed and arrested.

    As for Jim, he told police he'd only had one drink several hours earlier.  But they gave him a breathalyzer test and he blew a .139 . . . which is significantly higher than the legal limit of .08.

    Reese was booked under her given name, Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon.

  • Kid Kicked Out of Talent Show!

    Posted by Kristen Flowers

    A first-grade student in Michigan was banned from performing his “body fart” act in the school talent show.  It’s a talent only a mother could love, and Erich Henze’s mom, Emily, certainly does- in a recent local TV news interview, she said that her son’s skill is “real funny” and didn’t think twice about signing her son’s permission slip to participate in the show.  But the seven-year-old’s act, in which he makes flatulent sounds using various parts of his body, was deemed inappropriate by the principal.  Emily Henze disagrees with the school’s decision and says she thinks prohibiting Erich from performing his talent sends a message that it’s not ok to be yourself.  Forget the school talent show- Erich is on his way to becoming famous on YouTube.

    According to a new survey, one in four guys say they want their wife or girlfriend to get some type of cosmetic surgery. 

     

    But only HALF of those guys . . . one in eight . . . are brave enough to TELL her that.  Here are the five procedures guys want their partners to get most:   

     

    1.  Liposuction

     

    2.  A breast enlargement. 

     

    3.  Dental surgery to fix her teeth.  (It was a British survey.  Just sayin'.)

     

    4.  A nose job.

     

    5.  Botox.
