Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi Host The 2nd Annual Saving SPOT! Benefit!

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi host the 2nd Annual Saving Spot Benefit

Hello, hostesses with the mostesses!

Animal lovers Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are already two of the most fun people out there, but especially when they’re hosting an event… an event that's close to their hearts that also benefits the welfare of our furry friends!

The couple was at the Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel to host the 2nd Annual Saving Spot Benefit, and they drew out the stars!

Celebs like Amy Smart, Jessica Szohr, Octavia Spencer, Aaron Sorkin, Allison Janney, Cristin Milioti and Hannah Simone were just some of the people there. But it gets even more fabulous!

The guests got to play in the puppy pen with cutie rescue pups, they enjoyed the Dylan’s Candy Bar buffet, and even got their fortunes told by California Psychics.

And all in the name of saving animals! Aww!

Ellen and Portia just get more wonderful all of the time.

Check out some more pics from the event (below)!

The Newsroom Isn't The Best Show On TV! But It Can Be In New HIGHlarious Video Parody!

Filed under: TV NewsHIGHlarious

Are you still hate-watching The Newsroom?

You're not alone. Yet.

LOLz!

Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama has been polarizing TV audiences for more than a year now with it's witty, back-and-forth banter and retelling of actual news stories that happened months ago, thereby making them barely topical anymore.

As smart as the show tries to be, a new parody video from Funny or Die may be even SMARTER!

In a shot-for-shot recreation from the opening scene of the pilot, the new HIGHlarious vid spoofs the rant that lead character Will McAvoy went on when he was asked why America was the greatest nation in the world!

When asked why The Newsroom is the best show on TV, the new "McAvoy" explains EVERYTHING that is wrong with the series in one long-winded diatribe that had us crying with laughter!

Because The Newsroom ISN'T the best show on TV. But it can be!

Ch-ch-check out the funny, fast-talking tirade…AFTER THE JUMP!

Will.i.am Accused Of Suing Pharell Over Two Small Words, But Denies That Claim In Statement To Us

Pharrell, Will.i.am (or his hologram) will see you in court!

That's right, Will.i.am is going mental legal over the fact that Pharrell has launched a new creative brand called "i am OTHER," which Will.i.am claims is too close and "confusingly similar" to the phrase "I AM," which he claims he trademarked.

In response, Pharrell had this to say:

Aaron Sorkin is going from The West Wing to West Side Story!

The Newsroom scribe was asked in a recent interview whether he would ever write dancing into one of his scripts, and he almost let the Cats out of the bag! He said:

"Well, I'm going to be doing a Broadway musical, and there will be plenty of extended dance sequences."

Wha?? But he disappeared from Houdini! What's he working on now? He said:

The Newsroom's Second Season Looks Really Surreally Cool! See The Trailer HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsOlivia MunnJane Fonda

STOP THE PRESS!!! Will McAvoy is back!!!

We're super stoked because it's time for the sophomore season of Aaron Sorkin's journalistic juggernaut, The Newsroom!

Ch-ch-check out HBO's first sand-filled look at Season Two (above)!

In case you haven't heard, breakthrough drama features Jeff Daniels and his cast of misfits striving to be the lone voice of sanity and integrity in the nightly news. They face a litany of obstacles along their way, from abysmal ratings to the big bad Jane Fonda!!!

Also starring mega-hottie Olivia Munn and funny-man Dev Patel, the show was one of 2012's best!!!

The Newsroom returns Sunday, July 14!

Aaron Sorkin Does A Simpsons Walk-On!

Filed under: TV News

Aaron Sorkin Does A Simpsons Walk-On

The Simpsons is getting a new writer — Aaron Sorkin!

Only the Social Network scribe won't be working behind the scenes… he'll be acting in a cameo role!

So will the writer be doing one of his famous "walk-and-talks" on the show? Nope! He won't even have legs!

No, the West Wing creator will reportedly just play a figment of newsman Kent Brockman's imagination, dissuading him from joining the FOX News team!

Basically, it will be everything he tries to say on The Newsroom, but in about 30 seconds… and funny! LOLz!
