    R.I.P. Shirley Temple

    I'm going to guess that you didn't frequent movie theaters in the 1930's. Unless my grandmother is reading this, in which case, TURN OFF THE INTERNET! Where was I? Oh right! You can't talk about movies in 1930's, or any decade there after, without hearing about America's Little Darling, Shirley Temple.

    The child star who inspired your favorite childhood mocktail sadly died last night at 85.

    Look at the picture above. I know you've seen that face, those blonde curls, those dimples. She had dance moves that would make Michael Jackson look like a clumsy drunk. Temple was one of Hollywood's first child stars, topping the box office from 1935 until 1938. She was also credited with helping save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy, so you can thank her for Star Wars, The Simpsons, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and countless other movies and shows.

    She left the film industry in her late teens and went on to be the U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. (See? Not all child stars are doomed to self-destruct.) Temple is ranked 18th on the American Film Institute's list of greatest female American screen legends of all time (

    Now go check out these adorable gifs of young Shirley, and celebrate her life with her namesake cocktail!

    StePhest Colbchella '013

    This video might make the internet blow up, ladies and gentlemen.  It's Stephen Colbert dancing to the feel good jam of the summer, "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk, with, it seems, everyone in Hollywood.  From Jeff Bridges to Bryan Cranston to Henry Kissinger, all the stars are out as Stephen shakes his moneymaker.  I guess he didn't really mind that Daft Punk cancelled their appearance on his show.  Good old Stevie Colbert.  When life gives you lemons, make comedy.

    The Legend Of Bruce Vilanch?

    In the latest episode of our punk/prank/human graffiti show McMayhem, star Matt McManus runs around West Hollywood giving "kisses" to gay guys. (Hey, it's the title of the episode! -- Gwyneth Paltrow)

    In case you're unfamililar with the legend that is Bruce Vilanch, let's remind you:

    He is one of Whoopi Goldberg's BFFs.
    He was not only the head writer on Hollywood Squares, he was often CENTER SQUARE.
    He has written jokes for Bette Midler, Robin Williams and The Academy Awards, The Emmys and The Tonys.
    He did not think James Franco did a good job when he hosted The Oscars.
    James Franco did not like that Bruce Vilanch did not think he did a good job.

    Good cameo, McMayhem!

    Patricia Heaton Gets a Star On the Hollywood Walk Of Fame

    Congratulations, Patricia Heaton!

    Yesterday, Patricia Heaton, star of Everybody Loves Raymond, The Middle and our very own Versailles, received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame!

    I know for a fact that Patty is absolutely one of the nicest people you'll ever meet because she took time out of her ridiculously busy schedule last year to meet two My Damn Channel fans in Los Angeles! And she was nice to me, she was nice to them... she's just THE NICEST.

    So, congratulations on the big honor, Patty! Well-deserved.

    "Everybody Loves" Shacking Up With Mark

    You know, for a homeless guy, Mark Malkoff sure has a lot of cool friends.

    In this episode of Celebrity Sleepovers, Mark gets to crash with Phil Rosenthal, co-creator and Executive Produer of Everybody Loves Raymond.  Phil seems to be a nice enough guy (though he does have some pretty specific food and alcohol demands for Mark).  But things take a weird turn in bed.

    You'll know it when it happens.

    Ben Affleck's Diary - Golden Globes Edition


    Dear Diary,

    So. Hung. Over.  

    Haha, OMG, last night was one of the best, craziest nights of my life!  I didn't just win one Golden Globe, I won two!  How amazing is that?

    So the night started pretty much like you'd expect.  A little blow in the limo just to get the feeling right; I only do that kind of thing before big awards shows nowadays, unless of course I'm hanging out with Damon.  They don't call him "China White" for nothing.

    The red carpet is always the same.  I hate it.  I know I'm an actor and I should be used to the attention but I don't, I just don't.  Too many eyes on me.  I get uncomfortable.  I sweat.  I have dark thoughts.  Thank god I have Jenny with me.  I don't think I could have bared the prying eyes any longer if not for my beautiful angel protecting me on that red carpet.  I love you, baby.

    But once I'm inside the hotel, I come alive!  All my friends are there, the Mike's Hard Lemonade is flowing, and I'm feeling groovy!  Not worried about winning or losing at this point, just looking to have a good time and catch up with friends I haven't seen in a long time.  I mean, how often do I get to make fun of Anne Hathaway with Jennifer Lawrence?  Hathaway's mouth is freakin' huge, LOL!

    And then the ceremony starts and Tina and Amy totally are killing it and next thing you know Jodie's speech is totally confusing me and I'm hoisting a best director statue!  So thrilling.  Like, of course I said that winning doesn't mean as much as being mentioned in the same breath as the other directors nominated but we all know that's a load of bullshit.  You play to win the game, simple as that.  Maybe DeNiro will start taking my calls now that I've finally won a globe.  

    More Mike's Hard and kisses with Jenny and then Argo wins best picture.  The best.  Night.  Ever.  Standing onstage with all of those talented people looking at all of the drunk A-listers applauding me is like standing atop Mount Olympus as Zeus bathes you in the golden tear drops of Helen of Troy.  Boner city, LOL.

    After that we went to the after party and I don't even think I can even write down an account of the debauchery that transpired.  Let me just say Clooney doesn't always get naked, but when he does, you KNOW it's a good night.  And then let me say John Goodman doesn't always get naked, but when he does you know we're heading to White Castle sooner than later.  I know, so Hollywood, right? ;)

    Okay I need to take some Advil and get in the hot tob with my Golden Globes.  It's been so amazing.  I love the me that I am.  I love Jenny.  I love movies!!!!  Haha, ok, ok, bye for now diary.



    PS - Arkin's head isn't the only thing that's bald :-p

    Ben Affleck's Diary


    Dear Diary,

    Jennifer tells me not to worry but I am mad.  The Oscar nominations came out today and I didn't get nominated for Best Director!  Snubbed.  I mean, Argo was nominated for Best Picture and I'm proud of that - but I wanted to be nominated for Best Director!  It just kind of hurts that the Academy didn't think my work was worthy of a nomination - and also, I dunno what they're playing at, but that guy Michael Haneke was nominated and he isn't even an American - and neither is Ang Lee!  What's up with that?  I'm American, born and raised.  I'm from BOSTON, damnit!  I think the Academy should show some respect - Jenny agrees with me on this, too.  She's the best :) Hi, baby! I know you're reading this!

    Damon came over with some Mike's Hard.  We sat in the den and talked about the Oscars and then Matt popped in Good Will Hunting again…Always the bridesmaid, never the bride, I guess.  I mean, we both wrote the script, but I wasn't "Will"; I wasn't the star, I didn't get nominated for Best Actor, Matt did.  It's OK though, he means well.  Jenny reminded me that Matt's new movie Promised Land got bad reviews and that made me feel a little better.  I know he's my friend, but sometimes I can't help but smile when a movie of his tanks a little, LOL. 

    After that I kinda just hung out around the house for a while.  I'm trying to learn how to play "Hold On Loosely" on the guitar but I just can't get it.  The chords hurt my fingers and I got frustrated so I just stopped and went to the computer and played Bejeweled while a "Cheers" re-run played on a tv in the background.  Eventually Jenny came in and gave me a hug and that made me feel better, so I got up and the two of us went to an ice cream parlor to get sundaes.  Unfortunately a dude with a camera was there trying to get pictures of us so I had to pull a knife on him (don't worry, I didn't have to stab him).

    Somehow, Jenny and I were able to sneak out the back and we drove up to our favorite lookout spot in Malibu. As the sun set, I held my likable and charming yet still-able-to-kick-some-a** actress wife and couldn't help but wish I were holding a best director academy award statue instead. Sorry, baby. I know you're reading this :(

    After about 40 minutes we were ready to head home and now here I am writing this entry.  All and all it was an OK day.  I didn't get nominated for Best Director but there's always next time.  And who knows, maybe we'll win Best Picture!  I have to count my blessings. 

    Your friend,

    The "RuPaul's Drag Race" Connection

    Have you seen the latest McMayhem video, "Kisses For Gay Guys?"

    Turns out, Matt McManus has previously had some professional help learning how to be especially charming to this crowd...

    ...because he was Manila Luzon's "drag sister" Fuschia in the "Jocks in Frocks" episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, season three!

    Manila Luzon herself shared "Kisses For Gay Guys" with her Facebook fans over the weekend. Manila stars in the newest season of RuPaul's Drag U, which premieres TODAY on Logo. If Matt McManus is any indication, Manila's students will be in very good hands.
