Fifty Shades of Grey
Ellen DeGeneres taped a side-splitting reading of E.L James' "mommy porn" novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Complete with props, Ellen wonders if she should paraphrase the book’s racier scenes. At one point she says “I don’t think he should use a spatula for that. If you go to Anastasia’s house don’t eat the pancakes. Don’t eat the pancakes.” Watch Ellen’s spoof after the jump!
On today’s Pop Confidential podcast Jamey Giddens, Luke Kerr, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels are joined by popular blogger Totally Tyler, author of Your Boyfriend and Other Guys I’ve Kissed: The Tails of Totally Tyler.
The gang and Tyler weigh in on the latest celebrity gossip, including: Brangelina’s engagement, celebrities showing out on Twitter and Jennifer Lopez saying no to Marc Anthony wanting her back.
The topic turns to the new Shonda Rhimes series Scandal. Jamey enjoyed Scandal, but doesn’t want to see Private Practice cancelled in favor of it. What does Tyler think of ABC’s Southern-fried soap GCB? Luke encourages fans to give The CW’s Ringer another try. Could Jillian’s beloved CSI: Miami be cancelled?
MDNA, the latest album from pop icon Madonna, posted the biggest sales drop in history. Tyler has a theory on what contributed to the drop and is ticked Jamey didn't buy the CD! The boy bands One Direction and The Wanted are feuding, yet the panel basically doesn't know they are.
The Hunger Games has captured big box office dollars, but Tyler doesn’t think the movie lives up to the books.
After refusing to buy an e-reader or tablet, Jamey finally gave in and decided to get a Kindle when he couldn’t find a copy of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey in bookstores. Reportedly, Universal and Focus ponied up $5 million for the movie rights to the book being called “mommy porn.” All this and much more on today’s Pop Confidential podcast!
The topic of sex came up on Monday’s episode of The View. Barbara Walters provided viewers with another “Astroglide” moment, much to the chagrin of Elisabeth Hasselbeck. During a discussion of modern women, “mommy porn” books like Fifty Shades of Grey and the new HBO series Girls, Walters pressed Hasselbeck vigorously about if she liked rough sex with her husband (Tim Hasselbeck).
The topic was punctuated by Whoopi Goldberg’s horrified facial expressions. Hasselbeck never actually answered Walters' question. Watch the clip after the jump! READ MORE
