Getty ImagesSex sells everything from alcohol to burgers, and cable network HBO can vouch for the success of racy shows like "Californication." Their new series, "Hung," follows a down-on-his-luck high school gym teacher turned gigolo who relies on his below-the-belt endowment for help. It's a far-fetched premise, but MTV has decided to rip it off--despite it being completely inappropriate subject matter for their demographic. "Hard Times" is a new comedy series in production that follows RJ Berger, an unpopular 15-year-old with an "anatomical gift." After his "gift" is "revealed in front of the whole school," his social status makes a dramatic change. Wow, what a wonderful message you are sending out to teens, MTV!Read More »from MTVâ€™s â€œHard Timesâ€: Relying on phallic comedies for ratings
It's bad enough that the music network once known for playing music videos now airs crappy reality shows with zero substance 24/7, but when the network sets bad examples for kids and is downright inappropriate, we draw the line. Remember when MTV planned to run "Model Maker," the

INFphotoIf you're Jon Gosselin, it's never too soon to move on. The male half of "Jon & Kate" was spotted in St. Tropez, France holding hands with Hailey Glassman less than three weeks after his wife filed for divorce. Glassman is the the 22-year-old daughter of the surgeon who performed Kate's tummy tuck. The new couple went to Tahiti Beach for lunch, shopped at the Prada and Hermes boutiques and spent a day on clothing designer Christian Audigier's yacht. "They're having fun," said Audigier. "I'm taking care of them."Read More »from Jon Gosselin dating daughter of Kateâ€™s plastic surgeon
Fear not! The story just gets classier: Jon is now capitalizing on his fame and launching a children's clothing line with Audigier. Gosselin spent the weekend decked out in Audigier's Ed Hardy clothing to display his devotion, including $150 jungle-inspired jeans featuring two angry tigers on the butt. "People who wear our clothes are edgy and fashion-forward," says Audigier's marketing director. "They're in tune with pop culture and they like to take risks." Well, we suppose
Hit Dan BackA few weeks ago, a disturbing story broke that Morgan Freeman was maintaining a 10-year relationship with his step-granddaughter with whom he had a questionable sexual encounter when she was young. Yes, they are not related through blood, but Freeman is 72 and E'Dena Hines is now 27, which means she would have been 17 when they first... um... got together. Once Freeman's wife found out about their secret affair she filed for divorce, and now the Enquirer is claiming that once proceedings go through, he and Hines are set to wed.Read More »from Morgan Freeman to marry his step-granddaughter
"Morgan has led her to believe that he wants to marry her," says a family insider. Another source says, "Becoming Mrs. Morgan Freeman has been E'Dena's goal."

Peter Kramer/Getty ImagesToday Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary added about 100 new words, most of them reflecting pop culture and societal trends like "frenemy," "staycation," and "webisode."
The word "frenemy" has been in our vocabulary since we first heard the word used in an episode of "Sex and the City." According to the new dictionary entry, the term dates to 1977 and means "one who pretends to be a friend but is actually an enemy." Frenemies do seem to be mostly prevalent in female relationships, particularly when one woman is highly competitive with another. A frenemy may try to steal your boyfriend or friends, trash talk you behind your back, borrow and ruin your clothes, sabotage your outfit, make you look bad at work, try to make you jealous, or do anything else that might cause you discomfort or frustration.
Some famous frenemies:
- Heather Locklear and Denise Richards
- Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan
- Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder
- Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera
What do you get when you combine babies, "Rappers Delight" and roller skates? The adorable new Evian commercial that we can't stop watching. The video is quickly taking over the internet, and with good reason: it's cute (though perhaps a little bit creepy) and really funny. The ad claims it "supports the body's youth," because as we all know, nothing is better for the body than getting your recommended dose of H20.

Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesWe all know that stars have access to stylists, personal trainers, private gyms and personal chefs, but "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively claims she has no use for them. She's said before that she dresses herself, but now Lively says she puts no time or energy into looking good. "I do panic before I have to wear a really skimpy outfit, but I don't have enough willpower," says Lively in UK Glamour. "I had to do a scene in a bra and shorts for the first time in two years. On the day of the shoot, I ate a pork burrito, chips and coke. Afterwards, I thought, 'I probably shouldn't have done that.' But whatever."Read More »from Blake Lively joins countless celebs who claim they eat garbage and donâ€™t work out

ABC NewsMalia Obama, who turned 11 on July 4th, arrived in Moscow with her family this week wearing a $345 See by Chloe skirt. She'd just celebrated her birthday, and she is the daughter of our president, so we're not passing any judgment on the expensive item. The skirt is cute, and we know first lady Michelle mixes up her wardrobe with both high- and low-end items. But, this did get us thinking about how much people spend on their child's wardrobe.Read More »from Whatâ€™s the most expensive clothing item youâ€™ve bought for your child?
I remember the first expensive item my mother ever bought me. I was 14 years old when I got a white silk dress from Nordstrom to wear to my graduation. I attended this school from kindergarten through ninth grade, so it was a very special occasion, but I was floored when my mother approved the $200 price tag. I felt so important standing in front of a tailor for slight alterations, and the final result was gorgeous. I have many photos from that big day, and the dress, though now too small for me, still hangs in my closet. I'm hoping one day I'll

As the front woman for the mega successful hip-hop group, the Black Eyed Peas, Fergie is known for her sexy style, her edgy persona, and as she puts it, being "a little rough around the edges." But she's also a talented songwriter, a fashion designer, an actress and most recently, a wife. While taking on the role of new bride to actor Josh Duhamel, Fergie has decided to overhaul her raunchy onstage image. With even the First Family as fans, perhaps suggestive dance moves and dirty lyrics need to be toned down. Is the pop star we know and love going soft? Marie Claire gets the scoop on the work in progress that is Fergie.
She's adapting her image as she matures as an artist
"I wasn't trying to be a role model with The Dutchess," she says, of the stacked-heel seductress she evokes on the album. "But suddenly, seeing little girls in the audience with their moms made me think about what I do onstage a little bit more. I had to watch my mouth, because it can be filthy.
