NO REST FOR THE WICKED


The fine line between who's scamming who is blurred even further on this week's Ringer. Wedding plans, corporate espionage, twice the baby drama, and Mr. C in a towel all make for a fast-paced episode...and don't forget about Xerxes!

THE HILLS ARE ALIVE


After being demoted to guest star and essentially written off the show, Trevor Donovan brings the sexy (and gay) back to 90210 this Spring. Rejoice, and let the wild speculation begin!

BEIN' GREEN & GOLD


HAPPY OSCAR SUNDAY!

The 84th Academy Awards are now mere hours away. Somewhere here in Hollywood, Team The Artist is no doubt practicing their speeches...and if they're smart, planning ahead with an Edible Arrangement to send to George Clooney tomorrow. 

The real Oscar buzz this year (for me) is of course that Darren Criss will be performing "Rainbow Connection" with none other than Kermit the Frog for E!'s red carpet pre-show. The Muppets may not get to perform their Academy Award-nominated song "Man or Muppet" during the telecast, but I'll take this as a consolation prize - along with Kermit and Miss Piggy as presenters. 



But seriously, I'm not sure who to be more envious of. Sure, it's for two completely different reasons - but this is a tough one. Meeting Kermit remains to this day one of my life aims, but Darren Criss is also a one-man swoon factory. At the same time, I don't know that Mr. Criss could get those magnificent arms to flail like the Muppets' fearless leader can. I guess I'll just have to settle on this being a match made in Zip and a Kick! heaven. 

In all fairness both The Descendants and Penelope Ann Miller's The Artist have managed to escape my eyes this season, but I'm sure I'll get to them in the coming weeks. And while it's a goddamn shame that dire financial straits have reduced the show to being broadcast "Live from Hollywood & Highland Center" rather than the Kodak Theatre, I'm still somehow looking forward!

After all, even elderly wisecracker Billy Crystal seems guaranteed to deliver a more entertaining show than the inexplicably disastrous Franco & Hathaway. Muppets forever! Darren Criss 'til he gets old! YAY OSCARS!

DRIVING MISS FARRELL


Bridget enlists Solomon to help her figure out Siobhan's motives, and finds yet more surprises and heartbreak. Shiv intends to take down Andrew as well as all of Martin/Charles, but Tyler may not be willing to help her for much longer. Juliet meanwhile proves to be just as manipulative and vindictive as any adult on this show.

HEARTS & MINDS


Known for an abundance of sugar and the occasional massacre, Valentine's Day is here once again! I've always been of the mind to enjoy this day, as commercial and sometimes mis-focused as it can be. Love it or hate it, I hope you can enjoy today with me...even if it's only for a few minutes!



I decided to make my own valentines this year, because I felt that some of my favorite media wasn't getting the proper attention. The internet proceeded to beat me to the punch with posting various pop culture DIY cards, but mine are "niche". Print 'em out and share with the ones you love/like/tolerate!

And now a warning: Look out for Cupid, gang! Be sure you think with both your heart AND your mind today...especially if there's champagne involved! Now get out there and love someone.

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH


Bridget's casual detective work pays off this week, sending Siobhan into damage control...and potentially out of the country. Juliet's champagne-dependent mother arrives to "support" her maybe-victimized daughter, and Henry gets a whole lot more than he bargained for after bringing Agent Machado back to New York.

A LIVELY DEBATE


Blake Lively shares her thoughts on family planning in the upcoming issue of Elle, and inadvertently opens herself up to a world of controversy over her use of the word "tranny". Is an apology inevitable?
