Ricky Martin Blazes New Ground In More Ways Than One

Posted Mar 30th 2010 at 09:08 PM by Mike Ryan

Just when everyone had pretty much stopped asking, Ricky Martin finally announced that, yes, he is gay. On Monday, Martin announced via his Web site, "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am." In a way, it's quite admirable that he never made his sexual preference public knowledge (even though, you know, it was) before he was good and ready. Once...

Celebrity Cheaters Need to Rethink Their Technology

Posted Mar 29th 2010 at 08:45 AM by Mike Ryan

As the trend of public figures, like Jesse James and Tiger Woods, destroying their public images with their own typed or recorded words continues, we got to thinking that today's technology has made it all but impossible for a public figure to not eventually be caught doing something unseemly or be extorted. So why does it still happen? We decided to investigate, and even spoke with the magazin...

'Dog' Chapman Analyzes Aniston's 'Bounty Hunter'

Exclusive: We had the chance this week to attend the New York City premiere of 'The Bounty Hunter' starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.

Do Any Sitcom Families Even Like Each Other?

This past week, 'The Today Show' featured reunions of some of our favorite television families such as 'Eight is Enough' and 'The Partridge Family,' though, without two of the biggest stars from each respective show -- Adam Rich and Susan Dey. A planned 'The Brady Bunch' reunion was scrapped all together because of a supposed conflict between Eve Plumb and Maureen McCormick. Are there any past s...

Why Betty White Shouldn't Host a Full 'SNL'

Posted Feb 25th 2010 at 04:45 PM by Mike Ryan

The word on the street is that Betty White will, at least partially, be on 'Saturday Night Live' ... though not in the hosting role that many had hoped. With a major Facebook push to thank, the concept of Betty White hosting 'SNL' is a great one on paper, but the logistics of it actually happening are a little more complicated. While we're confident she's enough of a consummate pro to pull off a f...

On Friday night, during the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, a new version of 'We Are the World' was unleashed upon, well, the world, in an effort to raise money for Hatian earthquake relief. The original song, released in 1985, raised money and awareness for humanitarian aid in Africa. That original song went on to become a powerhouse of cultural significance. The new version? The cause...

Is 'Undercover Boss' Too Exploitative of Employees?

Posted Feb 9th 2010 at 05:15 PM by Mike Ryan

When you think about it, the corporate environment is kind of a weird place. Socially, it almost works like a miniature version of society as a whole. In other words: Anyone who is positioned in the upper levels of management hierarchy is, in that particular company, treated like a celebrity. Let's say the head honcho's name is -- as in the case of Sunday night's premiere of 'Undercover Boss,' ...
