Blake Shelton incited a major Twitter war over the weekend and was eventually forced to apologize for a tasteless joke and a string of insults… all because of a fake turtle’s death.
It all started on July 27 when Shelton wrote: Does anyone know if the Eastern Box turtle is protected in Oklahoma? If so I didn’t just swerve to the shoulder of the road to smash one…
NPR blogger Barbara J. King quickly responded in shock, asking the country music superstar: That turtle’s life meant something- was your tweet a bad joke? Why would you be so cruel to a living being?”
From there, it wasMore >
Despite Nicki’s and Kacie B.’s best efforts on last night’s episode, Courtney Robertson won a spot on The Bachelor season finale alongside Lindzi Cox.
Who will he propose to March 12, Lindzi or Courtney? Does the former have any chance against the Black Widow, or is she destined for heartbreak?
The Bachelor spoilers page on THG has all the latest on that subject, but judging by comments Ben himself made in his weekly blog, it’s a toss-up.
The rose-giver told People the following:
On Lindzi: “She is always up for anything, and that is a really attractive quality. Speaking of attractive,More >
Kids. They say such absurd things.
Some more than others. In this case, a youngster turned an innocuous knock knock joke into a genuinely awkward moment, turning off a cute girl in the process.
Watch the exchange below:
The transcript as we best understand it:
Boy: Superman on what?Girl: I have no possible idea… that’s all I know of the joke.Boy: Might be on a hotdog?! [smiles deviously]Girl: Yeah … [scoots away from future 40-Year-Old Virgin ASAP]
Well played, guy. Or poorly played, depending on your viewpoint.

Mariah Carey’s weight loss is the topic of the new cover story of Us Weekly.
The slimmed-down singer had plenty to say about the prior week’s too.
She appeared to make a comment about Kim Kardashian’s divorce at a press conference for Carey’s introduction as the new face of Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig).
“I’m a real person, I’m not putting on a fake face for Hollywood,” Carey told the crowd, then spoke about her marriage to Nick Cannon, with whom she has twins.
“Sometimes we really make each other mad, and that’s why we aren’t divorced after four months,” she cracked, as the crowd audiblyMore >
The games began, and quickly got nasty, as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills assembled for an uber-competitive Game Night at Dana Wilkey’s this week.
THG breaks it down, +/- recap style!
Alliances are drawn and things spiral out of control at Dana’s Game Night party and it’s a disaster almost from the beginning. First off, it’s boring as all get out because no one will talk to one another. Kyle and Brandi are the first guests to arrive.
Kyle is still fixated on Brandi’s use of the c-word last week at the barbecue and the fact that her four year old peed on the grass. Minus 5 Kyle. GetMore >
Perhaps fed up by repeated references to bands and TV shows jumping his kind, this four-foot spinner shark decided it was time for some aerial acrobatics.
In a video amazingly captured by Orlando Sentinel photographer Jacob Langston, the giant fish can be seen showcasing serious vertical leap and hang time.
It happened in the blink of an eye, but pay attention and you’ll clearly see it clear a stunned New Smyrna Beach surfer just off the coast of Florida:
As unreal as this clip is, it’s a fairly common occurrence, and spinners, whose teeth are made for munching smallMore >
In the end, it doesn’t even matter that Lindsay Lohan’s failed alcohol test the other day even occurred. Probation department personnel shouldn’t have even been testing her, the judge ruled, and alcohol is legal. Case closed.
The judge letting her off the hook wasn’t a miscarriage of justice – it was actually the probation department that screwed up. Still, LiLo is adamant that she did NOT drink alcohol and wants to clear her name (a tall order).
Her excuse? It was just Kombucha tea … obviously.
Lohan has been telling friends she’s been drinking her favorite beverage again – it alreadyMore >
Jersey Shore’s third season ended not with a bang, but with a thud. After 13 weeks, we’re as exhausted by Sammi and Ronni as the reality stars themselves.
There were many fun, hilarious times in Season 3, but the enduring image will be that of a couple so desperately in love … and so loathsome of one another.
As always, THG breaks down some of the top Jersey Shore quotes and scenes in our official +/- recap below. For the last time until Italy, let’s DO THIS:
Breaking up is hard to do. For you. It’s REALLY hard for these idiots.
We pick up where we left off last week. OMG, Ron and Sam areMore >
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi debuted her first foray into writing this week, showing off A Shore Thing a book about the tanned lifestyle of a Guidette.
The book is a “fictionalized” tale of Snooki’s own exploits on the shores of the Garden State.
The main character “Gia” is a “carefree, outspoken party girl” that party’s all around the Jersey Shore while looking for Guido love.
If you don’t want to pay $24 for the book, here’s just one chuckle inducing excerpt that have begun circulating around the web:
“Gia danced around a little, shaking her peaches for show. She shook it hard. Too hard. In
Both Amber Rose and Ashley Greene took time away from their busy love lives to attend the ESPY Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles last night.
Kanye’s ex-lover has been spotted getting cozy with Reggie Bush over the last couple weeks. He was also a guest at the ESPN event and forced a smile when he was featured on the big screen as host Seth Meyers cracked this joke:
Welcome to the ESPY Awards, where the worlds of sports and entertainment come together. It’s like a Kardashian sister’s bedroom.
Meanwhile, Greene is rumored to be dating actor Brock Kelly. He was nowhere to be found,More >
