This clip shows CBS journalist Serene Branson completely unable to pronounce any of the words she's trying to say as she slurs her way through the incomprehensible Grammys report. The Telegraph reports that Branson was hospitalized out of concern she might've suffered a stroke on-air, while the New York Daily News reports that she was examined by EMTs and sent home.
Untucked: RuPaul's Drag Race, the behind-the-queens companion show, returns Monday night at 11:30PM on Logo, after the RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3 premiere at 10:00PM. Untucked is the all-access pass to the drama that you didn't see on the runway -- the backstage catfights, conflict and tears. One thing is for sure, the savvy ladies of season three came with one resounding goal – to win!
The ever-present cameras continue to roll backstage in the Interior Illusions Lounge, as the ladies unwind – and come unhinged. As the competition intensifies, some contestants devolve from "queen" to "mean". Who will crack under the pressure of competing to become America's Next Drag Superstar? RuPaul narrates as the trials and tribulations unfold in thirteen episodes of the returning companion series.
Billboard Queen Angelyne has put her condo in the Bu on the market with a short sale asking price of $575,000. That's right, puppies, she may be the queen of Hollywood, but Angelyne is a resident of Malibu and for whatever reason – or reasons – is having trouble making her mortgage and has to sell up and get out.
Even more difficult to endure than her unbearable but not unexpected decorating habits (click picture to enlarge) is to imagine what may become of the ungracefully aging Angelyne now that she's going to have to vacate her premises in Malibu. Will she wind up in some one-bedroom rental in an ugly and outdated apartment building in Koreatown with peeling paint and a family of 19 next door? Will she end up stuck out like a dog on fire in Van Nuys? Or will one of her rumored benefactors install her in a quintessentially LA-style crib above Hollywood Boulevard where she can cruise up and down the tourist-laden streets in her pink Corvette while out-of-towners and locals alike hoot and holler their bemusement and adoration? That's what we hope will happen. We might not be able to stomach Angelyne's day-core – and we really can't stomach Angelyne's day-core – but we love her. The woman managed to carve out a wee niche in life, on her own whackadoodle terms, that didn't exist before she carved it out. There's something to be admired about that. At least we think so.

...Well that's what I think it must be about every time I drive past the billboard. For those not in the know, a "morning glory" is British slang for an erection on awaking from a night's sleep, or "Nocturnal Penile Tumescence", if you want to get technical. Or 'morning wood' for y'all Americans.
Googling the movie tells me it's about feuding anchors on a morning TV show, but I'm going to continue thinking it's about Harrison's Ford's schlong, thank you very much. I wonder if the movie will keep its original title for release in the UK?
Having spent the first 10 years of my life under the iron rule of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, it's impossible not to take a little bit of morbid pleasure in the UK media death watch that is surrounding her ailing health right now. Never has there been a more hated political figure – even as kids we were taught to despise her. At school we used to chant Thatcher, Thatcher, Milk Snatcher!,in reference to her outlawing free milk for school children, and I totally remember rocking out to some anarchist punk song called "We Won't Pay The Poll Tax!" with the neighborhood kids, even though we didn't have a clue what it was about.
Look, the fact is that you're going to see this video somewhere in the next day or so, so it may as well be here. I'm not sure what gay hipster fight, "filmed outside of a club called rhondas at el cid in los angeles (silverlake) around 4am," says about the ever-expanding nature of the YouTube fight video genre, but I would like to point out that the comment, "I used to have this fight on vinyl," represents YouTube fight video criticism at its most elegant and succinct. Please enjoy. Or recoil, that's also an option. (via The Awl and Dlisted)
