MacGruber: The Movie?

The next big movie to come out of the Saturday Night Live arsenal will be MacGruber, a MacGyver parody often showcased as two minute skits on SNL. Will Forte and Kristen Wiig will be reprising their roles for the film.

The basic premise of the film is, “MacGruber is brought out of retirement as a monk in Ecuador by an army colonel who needs his help to bring down the evil Cunth (Val Kilmer), who long ago was responsible for the death of MacGruber’s wife. Ryan Phillipe (yes!) is onboard as well, as Piper, an army officer assisting MacGruber. Jorma Taccone, who created the character, will direct,” reported New York Magazine.

BIGGEST LOSER
"Dance Your Ass Off" has you Movin' & Losin'!

Dance Your Ass Off, the new Oxygen reality show, has contestants moving, grooving, and losing, in order to win it all!

DYAO is hosted by Tony winner for Hairspray, Marissa Winokur, who serves as a plus size role model, with her healthy, toned yet voluptuous bod, attributed to her expertise in dancing. Here’s how the show works: 12 overweight individuals are chosen and given a personal trainer, dance partner, nutritionist, and doctor to help them overcome their obesity. Each week they must rehearse a dance number with their partners and perform it in front of 3 professional judges who give them an overall score. This score averaged with their total percent bodyweight loss score for the week, gives them their competitive score that can either make them stay in the game or go home. Oh, and along with the personal gratification of winning and being the most physically fit, there’s also a $100,000 prize!

BILLY MAYS
TV Pitchman, Billy Mays Dies at 50

What a sad week we shared with the deaths of some of the most well known people in the world. It started with Ed McMahon, next was Farrah Fawcett, then Michael Jackson, and now Billy Mays.

Majority of people know who Billy Mays is, and if they don’t then they probably do not own a television set. Billy Mays was on so many commercials pitching products such as Orange Glo, OxiClean, and Kaboom. He became a pop-culture figure with his booming-voice, friendly demeanor, and distinctive beard. He reminded me of Al Borland (played by Richard Karn) from Home Improvement.

CHARLIE'S ANGELS
The Beloved Farrah Fawcett Dies at 62

I am sure by now everyone has heard about the tragic death of a great icon. No, I am not talking about Michael Jackson, though that news is incredibly sad, but about the death of Farrah Fawcett at the age of 62. The former Charlie's Angels star passed away Thursday morning at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, nearly three years after being diagnosed with anal cancer.

AUDRINA PATRIDGE
Audrina Has Her Own Show

Yes, it is true. Audrina Patridge from MTV's The Hills has her own spin-off. Great, because we didn’t get enough of watching spoiled rich girls from Laguna Beach, The Hills, or The City.

BREAKING NEWS
Jon - Kate = DIVORCE

It’s official. Jon and Kate Gosselin publicly revealed their “separation” on last night’s much anticipated episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8, but before it even aired, People.com got a hold of some legal evidence of their actual filing for a divorce. SHOCKER!

TLC announced that they will be taking a “production break”, although rumor has it that the next episode is scheduled to air on Aug 3rd. I’m sure TLC is fighting this matrimonial turmoil so that they can keep their ratings at their all-time high!
