How Much Detergent Should You Use?

Carl Paladino - Just The Kind of Man You DON'T Want As Govenor!

The New York Times reports that Paladino has been angry over press inquiries about the daughter he fathered during an extramarital affair with a former employee 10 years ago. Paladino has intimated, without providing evidence, that Andrew Cuomo -- whom Paladino trails in the gubernatorial race -- had affairs of his own and that the media have not investigated.

On Wednesday, Dicker questioned Paladino about his criticism of Cuomo. Tempers flared to the point that Paladino's aides separated the two men.

"I want to know why you sent your goons after my daughter, Fred. You send another goon to my daughter's house and I'll take you out, buddy!" Paladino says in the grainy, ill-lit video, recorded on a bystander's cellphone.

If you ask me, Paladino started this whole mudslinging fest by going after Cuomo and calling him names. I mean come on Carl, grow up already. And a bit of advice for you, if you are going to sling mud make sure that it doesn't blow back and slap you right in the face. If you can't take the heat that you created in your own kitchen then get the hell out of politics all together.

Beyonce Spotted At A Block Party

Beyonce sure knows how to liven up a block party. That was the case this month when she traveled to West Orange, NJ to visit husband Jay-Z's mother, as pointed out by our pals at Hello Beautiful.

Beyonce spotted the party on the same street as her mother-in-law and immediately joined in, leading the group gathered in 'The Wobble' dance (think the Electric Slide but much cooler).

The Wobble is based off of rapper V.I.C.'s 2008 single and Beyonce sure knows how to perform it.

Brad Goreski Leaving Rachel Zoe - Do You Just Die?!

Brad Goreski, the nerd glass-, bow-tie-, suspender-wearing associate of super stylist Rachel Zoe, announced yesterday that he would be parting ways with his guru Oct. 1, according to People. The two say the split was amicable, and Zoe went on to explain: “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.’ I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me.” Goreski said he broke the news to Zoe a month ago after realizing now was the time to break out on his own.

No word yet on what Goreski will do next, but what I do know is, if there’s another season of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project to come, it’s going to have a bow-tie-shaped hole in it. This past season was already lacking without Taylor and the mostly mute Ashley and Jordan didn’t help, so it’s hard to imagine what will be compelling about the show besides shots of Zoe’s fabulousity.
Goreski’s next project should be somehow involve Zoe’s hair and makeup artist, Joey. Those two would shut it down, right? (You heard it here first!)

Are you surprised by Goreski’s exit? What do you think he should do next? Sound off!

Caprica - Brings on The Cylons...

It’s great that Caprica wants to distinguish itself from the show that gave it life, Battlestar Galactica, but would it kill them to toss in a few more toasters? Apparently not, since the second half of the prequel series’ first season (premiering Tuesday, Oct. 5, at 10 p.m.) will feature a major uptick in Cylon activity—as evidenced by the first-look image above and exec producer David Eick’s exclusive quotes below.

“Daniel Graystone’s creation—the early-model Cylon known as the U-87—emerges as a critical story point,” reveals Eick. “Due to the bad PR Daniel has endured since his prized creation, the Holoband, [was blamed for] the emergence of terrorist cells on Caprica, Daniel shifts his company’s focus to the perfection of artificial intelligence and its proliferation throughout the culture as the ultimate `helper’: Never gets tired. Never asks for a raise. Never quits on the job.

“Meanwhile,” Eick continues, “Joseph Adama and his brother Sam—using their organized-crime muscle to seize control of Daniel’s company—see an altogether different purpose for the U-87s: to sell to the highest bidder, no matter how violent their agenda might be.”

Bottom line: If you’re a BSG fan on the fence about Caprica, now would be the time to start tuning in.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I - Movie Posters

I don’t know if I’ve ever been as invested in a movie as I am Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. I’ve already teared up reading about the cast talking about how it looks like a war film with the massive destruction done to Hogwarts. The new posters, featuring Harry, Hermione, and Ron on the run with their wands drawn and the tagline “Nowhere is safe,” preys upon that intense reaction (which was echoed by more than one reader).

They’re dirty and bruised and looking over their shoulders in a way no teen should ever have to. We’ve built such a relationship with those characters over seven thick books and six films that I almost feel like this will be a new 3-D experience. An emotional one. We’ll have the urge to reach out to help them — or run. Check out Harry’s and Ron’s posters below. Effective marketing?

Comedian Greg Giraldo - Dead at 44

Comedian Greg Giraldo — well-known for his work on such programs as Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil, several Comedy Central roasts, and NBC’s Last Comic Standing — has passed away. Both Comedy Central and NBC confirmed the comedian died Wednesday in a New Brunswick, N.J., hospital, just days after being hospitalized, reportedly for a prescription pill overdose.

This afternoon, Comedy Central released the following statement: “The tragic news of Greg’s passing hits us very, very hard. Greg has been a close member of the Comedy Central family for years, injecting his energy and wicked sense of humor into countless projects. The comedy community lost a brother today. Our thoughts are with his family.” Giraldo appeared as a judge during the seventh season of Last Comic Standing, and this afternoon, the producers of that program also released a statement: “Greg was one of the most talented comedians of our time. He was truly brilliant. His work will surely continue to influence and inspire us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Tony Curtis dies at 85

The rare Hollywood star whose off-screen character was often more colorful than his on-screen ones, Tony Curtis has died at the age of 85. He passed away at midnight Wednesday night at his home in Nevada. The actor suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and was hospitalized in mid-July after he had trouble breathing.

Curtis lived a life that could easily have been made into a movie. Born Bernard Schwartz and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., to Hungarian immigrants, Curtis completed only one year of high school, spent two years in the U.S. Navy, and learned to act on the GI Bill, which led to a contract gig with Universal Studios. Graduating to bigger parts in films like 1952′s Son of Ali Baba and 1953′s Houdini, Curtis made a point of working in several genres.

As a result, his best-known films ranged from historical epics (1960′s Spartacus) to edgy noir dramas (1957′s Sweet Smell of Success) to farces (1959′s Some Like It Hot). But for every classic on his resume, he also appeared in more than his share of flops. He only earned one Oscar nomination in his seven-decade career, for the 1958 crime drama The Defiant Ones.
Curtis’ personal life was filled with great turmoil: He married five times; his first, and most famous, marriage was to actress Janet Leigh, with whom he appeared in Houdini after they had wed. The union lasted 11 years (the two divorced in 1962) and produced two daughters, the actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis (Trading Places). Tony Curtis had a rocky relationship with all of his children, including his eldest son, Nicholas, who died at age 23 of a heroin overdose in 1994. Curtis himself was arrested for marijuana possession in London in 1970, and spent a month at the Betty Ford Clinic in 1984. Even into old age, he never lived quietly. “Eighty f—ing years old. I don’t feel any different now than I did when I was 30,” he told Esquire in 2006. “Dying, I just don’t feel like it.”
