Andre Holland of NBC’s 1600 Penn, and the new movie ’42,’ is a hot guy. He says he’s never considered himself to be particularly hot, but the following information proves that he is:
1. He is attractive.
2. He speaks a little French.
3. He was born on December 28, and shares a birthday with Denzel Washington. (another hot guy)
4. He was shy as a kid, and looks ever so adorable when he discloses that information.
5. Just listen to the man’s voice.
But Andre didn’t just stop by Daily Shot to talk about being hot. He just wrapped the first season of 1600 Penn, in which he played White House Press Secretary Marshall Malloy. He’s also promoting the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,’ which comes out on April 12. He plays Wendell Smith, a sportswriter who influenced the decision to bring Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers as the first African American player in Major League Baseball. “It’s the best role I’ve done to date, “ he said, “the most special thing I’ve done.”

- It’s very possible that one of your favorite outfits isn’t doing you any favors. Tim Gunn tells Ali that there are a handful of popular clothing items that can make you look five pounds heavier than you actually are.
Tim’s number one crime against fashion is the Capri Pant. “It’s the pant that cuts you off right at the widest part of your calf!” he says. “It makes you look visually shorter, unless you’re long and lean and have a great figure.”
And don’t get him started on the Capri Pant’s cousin, the Cargo Capri. Because when you add pockets to capris, “you’re not only shorter, you’re wider!”
Next on Tim’s no-no list: Floral prints. While they are very on-trend this season, Tim warns that you should weigh your options carefully. If you’re a petite size, or on the other hand, if you’re larger than a size 12, “it’s very dicey, because they’ll overwhelm you.”
Another problem look? Skirts with hems that fall between the knee and the ankle. “It’s not only an instant route to l...Read More »
We’ve heard a lot this week about the Miley Cyrus video where she’s dancing around in unicorn onezie.
Now, the dance she’s doing is called ‘twerking,’ which is a new word for a lot of people. But it’s not a new dance—by some accounts, the term came out of southern rap in the mid-nineties, and the dance started popping up in music videos in the early 2000s.
Different people argue about who, exactly, coined the term and where the dance was first performed. But if this is the first you’re hearing about it, you should know Miley’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to twerking. The genre already has it’s superstars, such as the two Atlanta women called the Twerk Team, whose online videos showcase some expert-level, gravity-defying moves. (Parental discretion advised.)
Here at Daily Shot, we decided that Ali could give Miley Cyrus a run for her money, so we called Rhythm City from America's Best Dance Crew. Director, Alonzo Williams, said he knew just the girls to help Ali o...Read More »

When’s the last time you looked up someone hot on Facebook? Before lunch? There are about 900 million people on Facebook and, according to recent research, about a third of them use it to stalk.
“I think part of the problem is we need to stop calling it stalking,” Yahoo! Shine’s Piper Weiss tells Ali. “I think we have to call it practical research.”
Think about it: if you’re about to go on a date with someone you don’t know very well, a Facebook profile or a twitter feed can give you some good conversation material. “I actually think it's sexy to completely admit to someone that you've checked them out on the internet,” says Piper.
For example, say you love air hockey or a local band. If your crush plans a fun date around those activities, it’s kind of romantic, right?
Of course, there’s a line. If you’ve already been dating for awhile, “It's cool to 'like' things that they're doing, it's cool to tag them in things,” says Piper. But don’t overdo it. You don’t ne...Read More »
Justin Bieber fights with the paparazzi, Amanda Bynes gets her faced pierced, and Lindsay Lohan….well, she does what she does. Do you ever look at these young celebs acting out and think, “Where are their parents?”
So when Caroline Manzo,The Real Housewives of New Jersey matriarch, stopped by to talk about her new book, “Let Me Tell You Something,” Ali asked for her tough love take on young Hollywood.
You’d think Caroline would want to get all New Jersey on Lindsay Lohan, who was just sentenced to what will be her sixth rehab stint. But no. “I’m sorry, I just wanna give her a hug,” Caroline said. “Nobody hugs her.”
Justin Bieber, who grabbed headlines Monday by walking through airport security with no shirt on, has been on a tear of outlandish behavior lately. Caroline prescribed some firm but kind parenting for him. “I’m Mrs. Beiber? I’m taking my son away from social media and I’m taking him for a little R&R right now because I think he’s starting to slip,” said C...Read More »
