Each week, Hollywood gives us something to whine about, and the week ending Dec. 1 was no different. We could make a drinking game out of this week, but that would be too dangerous. Instead, we'll stick to the usual formula: varying levels of alcoholic respite depending on how bothersome the week's issues are. Is your biggest complaint this week a flimsy one? How about a light cocktail to take the edge off? Got a real bone to pick with a celeb or entertainment entity this week? Go ahead, grab a drink that'll put hair on your chest. Here are the week's entertainment stories that are forcing us to seek a bubbly or boozy refuge. And maybe an idea or two about how you should wash them down.
Take the Edge Off with a Little Baileys On Ice
The Girls Premiere is So, So Far Away
And this trailer is just making the wait even harder. Is it January yet?
Lindsay. Seriously. Quit It.
Girl cannot stay out of trouble. And now she’s punching people. We wouldn’t even bother to mention her millionth tumultuous week, but it’s driving us nuts.
Aww, Poor Emily Owens M.D. Gone So Soon?
The CW’s touchier-feelier version of Grey’s Anatomy didn’t last too long, but Dr. Emily was so sweet! Poor thing. She never did figure out how to cure that butterflies-in-her-stomach issue.
Let Loose and Spike Your Hot Cider
Friday Night Lights the Movie? Nope.
We chatted with FNL alum, Zachary Gilford, and as he sees it, doing an FNL movie just doesn’t make sense. This would be more depressing, but he’s got a point.
Britney’s Pulling a Madonna, and Not In That Wonderful, Millionth Reinvention Way
B, we still love you and we’re stoked you’re doing your thing on The X Factor, but that faux British accent in your “Scream and Shout” video with Wil.i.Am. is embarrassing.
Uncle Shawn Won’t Be Coming to Thanksgiving
At least, as far as Rider Strong knows. He’s not been asked to join the sequel series Girl Meets World with his former co-stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel.
Let’s Forget This Ever Happened And Skip the Cider Part of the Spiked Cider
We Have To Talk About Two and a Half Men Again
Every time this show starts to quiet down, something else pops up and demands our notice – whether we like it or not. This time, it’s Angus T. Jones and his claim that the show is “filth.” Not cool, dude.
Chris Brown Is So Unfazed By The Internet’s Anger That He Picked a Fight With a Woman on Twitter
Yoko Ono Has Lost Her Mind.
Do your pants not make the crotch area explicit enough? Do you want to know exactly where you shouldn’t put your hand if you want to avoid making a stranger angry? Buy these crotch-grab pants! They’ll show you the way!
