Tell us how you really feel, William Shatner.
In an interview with Joel Amos of Movie Fanatic, the veteran actor – and the man who originated Captain James T. Kirk – is asked about JJ Abrams helming both the updated Star Trek franchise and Star Wars franchise.
How does Shatner feel about the director?
“He’s probably the most talented director of that ilk we have,” Shatner says, adding, however, that Abrams has “gone too far” and is actually “being a pig” these days.
Already a father of two, Levi Johnston will soon commit to just one. Woman, that is.
The man best known for knocking up Bristol Palin will reportedly marry Sunny Oglesby this weekend.
In early September, Johnston and Oglesby welcomed a daughter named Breeze Beretta into the world. Yes, she’s named after the Italian firearms manufacturer.
Now, sources tell Us Weekly, they will take the step Levi was originally ordered by Sarah Palin planning to take with Bristol.
They will walk down the aisle in Wasilla on Saturday or Sunday.

Tina Fey is one unhappy comedian.
The 30 Rock star spoke last night at the Center for Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala in New York City, using the opportunity to call out Todd Akin of Missouri, Richard Mourdock of Indiana and other politicians who have remarked on abortion and rape over the past few weeks.
“I wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues,” Fey said. “But it seems like we can’t right now. And if I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, I’m gonna lose my mind.”

Julianne Moore won an Emmy for portraying Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change.
That did not sit well with the former V.P. candidate’s daughter Bristol Palin. Why?
“I don’t think she’s a good interpreter of my mom. I think my mom is way hotter than that,” she said. “I think she doesn’t have that accent. It’s kind of silly, but my mom’s awesome.”
Sure she is. Do you agree with Bristol (who’s been receiving white powder and death threats in the mail) that Sarah’s hotter than Julianne? Tell us below, who’d you rather …
Proving that no celebrity marriage is safe, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have announced their separation after nine years of marriage.
A rep for the couple says the split is “amicable,” though few other details are available at this time.
Arnett and Poehler were married in August of 2003 and are the parents of sons Archie, 3 and Abel, 2.
Arnett guest-starred on Poehler’s Parks and Recreation in 2010, while other shared on-screen credits for the pair included Arrested Development, Blades of Glory, Horton Hears a Who!, On Broadway, Spring Breakdown and Monsters vs. Aliens.

Ann Curry may be gone, but problems at The Today Show remain.
With ratings continuing to decline and the program losing out to Good Morning America on a regular basis, blame is starting to make its way all around to the show’s golden boy: Matt Lauer.
“Staffers and producers at the Today Show hold Matt Lauer responsible for the continued decline in the ratings because they hold him responsible for Ann Curry being fired,” a source tells Radar. “The staff wants Ann to be brought back and want Matt replaced with [weekend anchor] Lester Holt, but they know the odds of this happening are slim toMore >
With V.P. nominee Paul Ryan energizing the Republican base and Joe Biden trying to rile up … well, everybody, President Obama campaigned for reelection at the Iowa State Fair yesterday, making his case to voters the old-fashioned way:
Giving away free beers at the Budweiser tent.
Barack actually yelled to the crowd, “Hey, everybody who’s over 21, you gotta buy a beer!” Obama then bought 12 – two for himself, 10 for people in line behind him.
Obama’s appearance was a poorly-kept secret, drawing thousands of fans, and creating security nightmares at the Hawkeye State’s popular annual More >
Breaking up is hard to do, but sometimes, things change and you have to move on. So says D.L. Hughley in calling it quits with Chick-fil-A.
The comedian penned a letter to The Huffington Post confirming the split, saying he and the chain are “growing in two different directions.”
Mainly on account of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s stance against gay marriage, of course. Here’s what Hughley had to say about it…
Hughley said he felt forced to “choose between my heart and my stomach,” but had no choice, since “baby, lately you’ve been doing me dirty.”
“You’ve been speaking with a forkedMore >
With the Republican National Convention coming up this month, presidential nominee-in-waiting Mitt Romney is preparing to make the biggest decision of his candidacy.
Who will be his vice presidential running mate? No one knows.
The secretly-guarded vetting process offers few clues as to who Romney might run with against President Obama, but that hasn’t slowed the political world’s answer to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie rumor mill for one second.
A number of GOP All-Stars – former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Rob Portman (Ohio), Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.),More >
Former political figure/celeb Sarah Palin stopped by a lucky Chick-fil-A restaurant Friday to “support a great business” slash probably denounce gay people.
Palin Tweeted and Facebooked a picture of herself, former Alaska First Dude Todd Palin, at Chick-fil-A, looking happy to be at the Houston-area spot.
“Stopped by Chick-fil-A in The Woodlands to support a great business,” is her caption, no doubt in support of Chick-fil-A’s anti-gay marriage stance.
To be clear, Chick-fil-A’s founders have a right to their opinions, and by visiting there and posting the photo above, Sarah’s exercisingMore >
She didn’t even last one term as Governor of Alaska. She failed in her bid to become Vice President of the United States. At this point, she’s merely a Fox News contributor and the mother of a reality TV star.
So why does Sarah Palin remain so newsworthy? Russell Brand has a theory.
“The reason that Sarah Palin has been so long tolerated is that latent inquisition around her vagina,” Brand laughed yesterday during a Q&A session at the Television Critics Association press tour. “People want to f-ck her, don’t they? That’s why they tolerate the other stuff… The dick don’t lie!”
Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp is so unpopular, it can’t even beat a RERUN of Dance Moms on Lifetime. So it’s been pushed to 11 p.m., according to reports.
Lifetime will now be airing a new Dance Moms episode at 9 p.m. Tuesdays, followed by a repeat at 10 p.m. in Bristol’s old slot, then Palin afterward.
The season premiere of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp aired June 19 to abysmal ratings and worse reception from critics. It may be the worst show ever.
It eked out a total audience of 726,000 viewers, many of whom probably hated it pretty bad, and a meager 0.2 rating in the key 18-49More >
Lifetime has released some promotional pictures for Bristol Palin’s new reality show, and doggone it, she looks like such a grounded, normal mom!
Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp (get it?!) premieres on June 19 with two (!) episodes. Here’s one awesome reason why you should check it out, too.
Behold, Bristol riding a mechanical bull. She’s so fun!
This pic was taken, of course, during the infamous incident where Bristol was asked if she rides Levi like that (hilarious) and then got all up in the face of a heckler who said some really vile things about her mom (not hilarious).

Bristol Palin insists that viewers will see a more “normal” and “grounded” side of her on Lifetime’s new reality show, Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp.

“It’s just the root of my life and my family’s life and I think it will do well.”
Robin Roberts’ MDS revelation dominated the show, but the daughter of Sarah Palin sat down for a brief interview regarding her new program.

Jaclyn Swedberg has received the highest honor a woman who takes off her clothes for a living can receive: she’s been named the 2012 Playmate of the Year!
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and his son, Cooper, presented the busty brunette with the award at the Playboy Mansion this afternoon.
“Jaclyn was overcome with emotion and gratitude when giving her speech in front of Hef and her family,” a Playboy rep tells Us Weekly. “All in all, it was fantastic afternoon with family, friends, Playmates and past Playmates of the Year all in attendance.”
