    Carrie Underwoo see Mike Fisher s her equal, not her subordinate. So when the media refers to her hockey player husband as "Mr. Underwood," the singer is understandably upset.


    "It made me feel awful," the country music superstar, 29, says in the February issue o Allure "Somebody works real hard to make a name for themselves, a respectable name, and then it's 'Mr. Underwood.'"

    Canadian-born Fisher, 32, was called "Mr. Underwood" many times when he was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators in February 2011, according to the "Blown Away" singer.

    "He was drafted there, and that was the only team he had ever played for [in the United States]. He would have played and he wanted to play for Ottawa for his whole career. He had no say in any of it," Underwood says in her husband's defense. "[But] I love it that he's here."


    Underwood is in it for the long haul with Fisher, despite what doubters say.

    "We've seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families," she says. "People would say, 'Do you ever worry that? You know, he's an athlete, he's young, he's good-looking?' And I've never had to worry about him, because I've never trusted anybody so completely. Or I didn't know the true meaning of trust. He just. . . He just wouldn't do that."

    Though the "Before He Cheats" chart topper has often sung about heartbreak, the athlete makes her feel more loved than ever. "We want that person to be everything we've always wanted," Underwood tel Allur of her music. "If they're not Prince Charming, we try to make them Prince Charming. But Prince Charming does exist! I found one."

    SAO PAULO (AP) — A Brazilian judge has ordered bookstores to ensure that the erotic trilogy "Fifty Shades of Grey" is out of the reach of minors.

    Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos issued the order Jan 14 after he saw children in one of city's bookstores looking through erotic books, according to a statement issued by the Rio de Janeiro State Judiciary Department Thursday night.

    Eleven copies of the "Grey" series were among 64 books taken from the shelves of two bookstores because their content was deemed improper for those under the age of 18.

    Two days after the judge's order, the books were back on the shelves, but sealed and out of reach of minors, as Campos instructed.

    The judge based his decision on a law that says "magazines and publications whose content is improper or inadequate for children and adolescents can only be sold if sealed and with warnings regarding their content."

    E.L James' works were the most-sold books in Brazil last year, according to newsweekly Veja. "Fifty Shades Freed" was the top seller, followed by "Fifty Shades of Grey" and "Fifty Shades Darker."

    Although ordering books off the shelves is unusual, the move has not caused any major backlash or uproar in Brazil.

    Last year public libraries in several U.S. states pulled the trilogy from their shelves or did not order the best-seller at all, saying it's too steamy or too poorly written.

    As The Taste gears up for its premiere this Tuesday, the ABC promotional machine has peppered the entire country with ads containing the interesting-looking mugs of Anthony Bourdain, Ludo Lefebvre, and Brian Malarkey, as well as the sensual cannoli who calls herself Nigella Lawson. But unlike Malarkey, whose face looks like a glossy, perfect egg, Lawson and her curves are delightfully…human-looking. And this is on purpose.

    On her blog, Lawson revealed that she forbade the ABC promo team from photoshopping out any of her human imperfections, particularly her stomach.

    “Although it was very thrilling to think of being up on a billboard in LA and around the States, I was very strict and English and told them they weren’t allowed to airbrush my tummy out,” she wrote. “Wise? Hmmm. But that tum is the truth and is come by honestly, as my granny would have said.”

    Nigella, you woman person, you. We can’t believe you managed to convince ABC to leave you and your curvature alone. (If only we could say the same about Malarkey, who looks like he held a gun to a graphic designer’s head until he dialed up the saturation in Photoshop… or lived in Miami. Zing!)

    Need proof? Look at the poster below and bask in Nigella. Doctors say she’s the illest, ’cause she’s sufferin’ from realness. [ugh, i was so offended by that corniness that i debated deleting it from the post, but i decided against it.]

    A new controversy surrounding Madonna’s latest education project in the country which is the native home of two of her adopted children, raises many questions after Malawi education authorities on Thursday challenged a claim by Madonna’s organization, that her charity last year built 10 new schools in the poor southern African nation.

    Education Minister Eunice Kazembe said…


    “The schools Raising Malawi claims to have constructed were already in existence. Raising Malawi only built 10 classroom blocks and not schools. People should know the difference between the two.”

    In December Madonna’s charity in tandem with global non-profit buildOn, announced the completion of 10 schools, claiming they would provide education to 4,871 children.

    Madonna said in a statement
    issued at the time

    “I am overjoyed that my commitment along with buildOn’s to help educate the children of Malawi has come to fruition.”



    Malawi’s education minister said the country wanted to “clarify any misconceptions that may arise.”

    Raising Malawi released a full report (PDF) on the BuildOn school project.

    'Kourtney stinks of B.O.!': Scott Disick laments his earth mother girlfriend's decision to give up deodorant while breastfeeding
    By IONA KIRBY

    kourtk

    Kourtney Kardashian has turned earth mother and only uses natural products and remedies.
    But one thing her nearest and dearest aren’t too happy about is her decision to ditch the deodorant.
    Khloe confronts Kourtney’s partner Scott Disick about the way her sister smells during a preview clip from the new season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.

    ‘Do you notice that there’s a little something with Kourt?’ Khloe asks as they enjoy a peaceful spot of repose on the balcony. ‘Like, the BO?’
    Scott immediately agrees: ‘Yeah, she reeks.’
    He explains the smell is just a result of Kourtney’s bid to stay all natural.
    ‘Only because she doesn’t believe in wearing deodorant because she thinks it’s bad for her breastfeeding or something,’ Scott says, which is met by a scream from Khloe.

    Blunt as always: Kourtney's sister Khloe broached the subject and asked Scott if he has noticed 'the BO'
    ‘It’s uncomfortable,’ Scott admits. ‘You don’t want to tell somebody you love that they stink.’
    But Khloe takes a typically blunt approach to the matter and says: ‘I just think, a little dab will do ya.’
    Khloe tells the cameras: ‘I’m not surprised that Scott knows. I got a whiff of her, and everyone should know. Typically I would tell Kourtney that she stinks, but Kourtney has a lot going on.

    Homeland fans will be seeing less of “Uncle Mike” when the Emmy winning smash returns next September.

    TVLine has learned exclusively that Diego Klattenhoff — who has played Brody’s army buddy and the “other man” in his marriage to Jessica — will not be back as a series regular in Season 3.

    Reps for Showtime and 20th declined to comment, but a source tells TVLine that it’s possible the actor could be back in a recurring capacity.


    The news doesn’t come as a huge surprise given that Homeland essentially wrapped up Klattenhoff’s story in the Season 2 finale. Curiously, Klattenhoff’s co-star, Morena Baccarin, is expected to return as a regular.

    The silver lining for Klattenhoff: He’s now free to jump head first into pilot season, where he’ll likely be a hot commodity.

    Homeland‘s third season launches Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9/8c.

    Michael J. Fox totally knows who Taylor Swift is, you guys.

    The iconic actor got in touch with our favorite country-pop heartbreaker to clear the air on a few not-so-flattering comments that he made about her at a recent book signing, and with that, the feud between two of the least-threatening celebrities on earth has come to an anticlimactic end.

    Here's how it all went down. Fox's son, Sam, was Mr. Golden Globes at the ceremony on Sunday -- meaning he carried the trophies on stage and stood around looking like a flashback to 1985, when the world was pure. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got a little fake-tipsy midway through the show, and Fey grumbled, "Taylor Swift, stay away from Michael J. Fox's son!"

    Take note: Swift and Sam have probably never met, because she did not win her category at the Golden Globes, and thus sparks did not have the chance to fly as he handed her a trophy. Also, she probably has no interest in dating him, because he works for a small startup company that helps farmers sell their crops, and nothing about that rhymes with anything catchy.

    Still, a reporter felt the need to ask Fox what he thought about Sam and Swift's hypothetical (read: completely fabricated) hookup.

    Fox didn't exactly say the nicest things about Swift. "No. No ... Just back off," he said. "I don't keep up with it all, but Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career ... I wouldn't even know who she was."

    Ouch.

    Obviously, Swift's army of fans rose up on Twitter against Fox. We're pretty sure this marks the first time in his long and storied career that anybody has disliked him, at all, even a little bit. He wasn't about to lose his place as the most adored actor ever, so he gave Swift a call to make things right between them. Swift tweeted out a signal to her fans to back down from their Michael J. Fox hate.



    And now, we can all forget about this until her next album comes out with a song titled "Think, McFly, Think (Before You Speak)."

    Is Britney performing in Las Vegas or not? Reports claim the deal is close to being finalized for residency at Planet Hollywood, but a source connected to the major hotel tells BreatheHeavy.com the bidding war is about her singing live.

    The hotels fear that people outside of Britney’s fanbase would be disappointed by a lipsynched show,”lol even fans are dosappointed most of the time, lbr says the insider.

    Many tourists in town who see shows are an older audience; hotels fear Britney may not attract a big enough crowd.

    “The hotels are afraid to take her on because they feel people will demand refunds if the show is lackluster and lipsynched.”

    Source.

    Not only I am bisexual, but also bipolar, cause if this Vegas deal will force her to sing live, then I'm on board. I don't care if I won't be able to see her there, but knowing that she is putting some effort into it would give me enough life, tbh.

    There will be no new Elementary tonight (yesterday), a fact that I’m sure saddens all of you as much as it saddens me, but coming off of “M,” the series’ best episode to date, we could all use a few extra days to process the episode’s climactic events before jumping back into the action.

    “M” could represent a turning point for Elementary, moving it from being an above average procedural to one of the best dramas on network television. Aside from being an excellent showpiece for Jonny Lee Miller (I strongly suspect I’ll be pulling for him come Emmy season), “M” deepened Sherlock and Watson’s relationship, fleshed out Sherlock’s backstory in a meaningful way and set up an ongoing storyline that has the potential to fuel the series for years to come. Not too shabby for a single hour of television.

    While the episode was littered with interesting moments, from the introduction of Sherlock’s young informant to Watson’s heartfelt discussion with her therapist, there were three big moments that tangibly propelled the series forward and reshaped the parameters of the kind of storytelling we can expect from Elementary.



    Back in December, I speculated that Watson would choose to stay because “the work she does with Sherlock gives her a purpose.” Her love of his work has certainly been discussed numerous times since the series returned from its short winter break, but ultimately Watson’s reason for staying was far more complex than I anticipated it would be. In “M,” Watson was confronted with the full extent of Sherlock’s emotional damage and what she saw scared her.A man who believes his sober companion’s work is valuable because it prepared him to be clear-headed enough to exact vengeance is clearly not a man ready to be left on his own.

    Watson chooses to stay without financial compensation or support from Sherlock’s father because she realizes she is the only person Sherlock has. We are now dealing with two people who want to be a part of each other’s lives, rather than have to be. Of course, Watson is keeping up the pretense that she still works for Sherlock’s father, but the lie is a fragile thing as Sherlock tends to see through lies rather quickly.The moment that Watson definitively decided to change course and stay with Sherlock, the series made a clean break from the professional element of their relationship. To paraphrase a line from Casablanca, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful and emotionally messy friendship…





    Elementary‘s Sherlock has always been more emotional than other versions of the super sleuth. He doesn’t always deduce; he understands emotional motives as well as rational ones, and in some ways this makes him a stronger detective. As a man, he’s guarded, but not incapable of showing his rage or affection. However, knowing that did not prepare me for the moment when Sherlock bluntly informed Watson that he had “no intention of capturing M” and instead planned to capture, torture and murder him.

    Sherlock is supposed to be the “good guy,” but his actions in “M” were chilling. The depth of his pain over Irene’s murder suddenly swung into sharp focus. Sherlock, our hero, is still essentially broken and capable of committing truly terrifying acts. Yes, M is a truly despicable human being (albeit one played with unnerving style by Vinnie Jones) for so callously and brutally taking lives, and in exchange for money no less, but to see Sherlock take on the role of judge, jury and executioner without flinching added a new and frightening layer of emotional complexity to the character. The question becomes where does Sherlock go from here? And will Watson’s influence be enough to stop him when he comes face to face with Irene’s real killer?




    “Moriarty said you’re obsessed with puzzles. Well, he’s the best puzzle you’ll ever come across. If you kill me now, you’ll be killing the best clue you ever had.”

    The reveal that the “M” we were dealing with in the form of Jones wasn’t the infamous Moriarty wasn’t surprising. His use of brute force and football obsession didn’t fit with the classic image of Moriarty as a deranged intellectual. However, seeing Sherlock realize there was some unknown madman out there toying with his life was a goosebump-inducing moment. Just like in the scene where Joan decided to stay with Sherlock, there was a sense that we were witnessing the beginning of something special.

    In one scene, Elementary dove head first into the murky waters of the Holmes-mythos, and at the same time signaled that it would no longer be a pure procedural with tiny scraps of serialization thrown in for good measure. The specter of Moriarty won’t be leaving anytime soon, and neither will Sherlock’s thirst for revenge against the man who took the life of the woman he loved (allegedly– yes, I’m sticking with the Irene’s not dead theory for the time being).Elementary will still tell episodic stories, of course, but the overarching plot will always be simmering just below the surface– and if this episode is any indication, that can only mean good things for the series.

    fringe1

    When Fringe airs its series finale tonight (8 p.m. EST on Fox), it won’t just mean a conclusion to the five-year run of stories about Olivia, Peter and Walter’s Weird Science Adventures; it’ll mark the end of an era for science fiction on broadcast television — for the foreseeable future, at least.

    While the close of the series doesn’t mean an end to openly genre shows on the Big Five networks (ABC, CBS, the CW, NBC and FOX), the ones that remain either skew more magical/supernatural (Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Supernatural) or pride themselves on a more grounded approach to the theoretically fantastic (Revolution, Arrow). But in terms of pure sci-fi TV, there isn’t much left to carry the torch after Fringe closes up shop.



    It wasn’t always like this, of course; Some of the most well-known and well-loved modern science fiction has come from broadcast television throughout the decades, from The Twilight Zone through the various Star Treks, Babylon 5 to The X-Files and Lost. Indeed, when Fringe launched in 2008, it was just one in a raft of new shows from the genre that year alongside Dollhouse, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and the remakes of Knight Rider and Eleventh Hour (Also running at the time, the aforementioned Lost and the second season of NBC’s Chuck). In following years, science fiction fans were also treated to V, FlashForward, The Event and Terra Nova, as well, as networks tried to fill the gap left behind by the end of Lost in 2010.

    Of course, most of those shows faded within a couple of years or less thanks to low ratings and — let’s be honest — less-than-stellar creative choices (FlashForward and The Event, I’m looking at you). Ultimately, what appears to have killed off science fiction on mainstream broadcast television is the fact that mainstream broadcast viewers don’t really want to watch it anymore. Or at least, not as much as they want to watch reality shows, procedurals where a man with black hair and a blonde woman fight crime, or sassy sitcoms, all of which are cheaper for the networks to produce and don’t involve nearly as much explanation to viewers tuning in for the first time.

    It also doesn’t help that broadcast television doesn’t have to offer science fiction anymore; there are countless cable channels around to fill that need, even if Syfy does seem to be cutting down on the number of sci-fi shows it originates – although I remain hopeful about the upcoming Defiance.

    The unfriendly atmosphere towards the genre makes something like Fringe all the more rare, and all the more important, in its strange way. It’s a show that lasted longer than most believed it could — Fox has, after all, cancelled cheaper shows with higher ratings in the past — and was proudly, almost stubbornly, obscure and given to wonderfully insane plot twists to throw its soap operatic elements in new directions when the viewers least expected it. Few shows, for example, have managed to keep a Will-They-Won’t-They relationship dynamic going by rebooting the timeline or swapping one of the characters for her own parallel world doppelganger, much to my eternal sadness. That has to be something worth appreciating.

    Over its five year run, Fringe offered both the best and worst of science fiction television. It was far from perfect by any means, with sudden changes in direction or plot twists that happened so quickly you could get whiplash, with a tendency to purposefully overlook obvious plot holes or make dramatic leaps of logic if there was the possibility for a moment of cheap emotional tension to be mined. What it remained, however, was a show worth all of the disappointments and frustrations it doled out on a regular basis.

    Consistently entertaining even in its worst moments, the series was a collection of alternately hilarious and fiendishly inventive stories that balanced easily-identifiable and sympathetic personal drama — a son trying to rebuild his relationship with his absent father, a woman struggling to balance her professional and personal lives –with increasingly spectacular and surreal high stakes that scaled up from an endangered airplane full of passengers to the very survival of the human race.

    Although it launched as something akin to a contemporary X-Files – an admitted influence in the show’s creation, alongside the movies of David Cronenberg, The Twilight Zone– Fringe quickly developed its own identity thanks in large part to the presence of Walter Bishop, a character who managed to be both heartbreakingly tragic and endlessly comedic within the same moment, played pitch perfectly by one-time Australian soap opera star John Noble. With his combination of manic energy and deep melancholy, Walter brought a humanity to the show that gave its Weird Science Of The Week formula a heart, and gave viewers who could have been turned off by cross-dimensional shape-shifting assassins and time-traveling environmental terrorists a reason to keep tuning in.

    Not that the show hid from its own geekishness, what with its sneaky DC Comics easter-eggs, starring role for Leonard Nimoy and, well… this.

    Behold what is essentially a 90-second love letter to Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations, which not only made it into a recent episode in the first place, but was one of the most important scenes in the episode in question. This is how weird and wonderful Fringe – and science fiction television as a whole — could be at its best. Despite its frustrating moments, Fringe will be missed after tonight, particularly in the absence of a network sci-fi show ready to thrill, amaze and amuse its viewers even half as much. See you in the next life, Gene.

    3.2 million viewers tuned in to OWN for the first airing of Oprah's bombshell interview with Lance Armstrong on Thursday.

    It was the second highest-rated telecast for the young network, according to a statement from OWN on Friday. The interview's second airing at 9 p.m. PT drew an additional 1.1 million viewers, for a total of 4.3 million viewers watching the interview that night. The 9 p.m. airing came second to the March 2012 telecast of "Oprah's Next Chapter" with Whitney Houston’s family, which drew 3.5 million viewers.

    Thursday's interview was also the highest-rated weekday telecast for OWN in the key 25-54 demographic.

    All eyes were on Oprah and Armstrong this past week, as news that he confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs leaked.Oprah said that the interview was "the biggest" of her career, and was widely praised for her questioning.

    Thursday's interview — which brought in premiums for advertising time and put OWN in the limelight — is the latest sign that the network is finally gaining traction. Oprah declared that OWN had finally "made the pivot" in September, after it initially struggling to gain traction and several big shake-ups in programming.

    The only reason the network is finally seeing any kind of boost is because Big O is back on the screen.

    Robert Pattinson and Naomi Watts will not be coming to theater near you anytime soon.

    At least not together, that is.
    The two are signed to costar along with Jude Law in a Queen of the Desert, a period piece about British writer, traveler, archeologist and spy Gertrude Bell.

    "It's still a way's off," Watts told me last night at the Luminara and Mulberry Project dinner for her Sundance Film Festival movie, Two Mothers. "I don't know yet. Hopefully, it will happen. I just can't travel again right now because I did a lot of traveling last year. It's been a big year and it's time for me to be home with the kids."
    And speaking of kids, in Two Mothers, Watts and Robin Wright play best friends who fall in love with each other's teenage sons.
    "These are two great female characters fill of complexities who are dealing with that midlife point," Watts said. "It's definitely an unconventional love story."

    "But it's not just about sex and their ages," she continued. "It's about this kind of unit that has worked so well together and it's the end of their school life. They're about to head off to university. The nest is emptying."
    Watts' son is played by 29-year-old Twilight star Xavier Samuel ("He looks much younger on screen," Watts said) while Animal Kingdom actor James Frecheville, 21, plays her young lover.
    Watts, 44, says she can relate to her character. "I understand loneliness and the fear of that and she's someone who has suffered and is afraid to be alone," she said. "She has this wonderful friendship and I can relate to that side—two women who are almost co-dependent with each other and they could go through ups and downs of a high level and still come to the other side of it."

    In much less, well, deep news, Watts said she doesn't have her Oscar dress picked out yet (she's nominated for her work in The Impossible).
    She and her sister-in-law stylist are talking "to a few designers" right now.
    "It's kind of endless hours that you have to put into it, in terms of fittings and second fittings and more," Watts said. "That's why I love this festival. You just slip in and out and it's no nonsense. I love that we can schlub around and not worry about frocks."

    HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. Singer Katy Perry and singer-songwriter John Mayer could be looking to settle down and have children, a source told More magazine.
    The source, whose name was not reported, said the couple are getting more serious about their relationship.

    "John has given her the confidence to jump out of the rat race. With John, she feels like herself. She wants to nest. She's gained a few pounds, is taking a much-needed break from work and perhaps is even getting her mind and body ready for pregnancy," the source said.

    Actor Russel Brand, Perry's ex-husband, had previously hinted that the reason the two divorced is because she was too career-oriented and didn't want children, Entertainmentwise reported Friday.
    "She's young, successful and dedicated," Brand said in an interview with Howard Stern. "[The reality is] you can't fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea of marriage and having children."
    Mayer has a reputation for dating and dumping some of Hollywood's hottest stars, Entertainmentwise said.

    "John really likes the fact that Katy is so independent and not needy and clingy like the other girls he's dated.
    This is the first time John's felt so strongly about a girl. She's played her cards perfectly," the source told More magazine. ''They really do bring out the best in each other. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he proposed.''
