Jennifer Lawrence Shuts Down Rumor That She And Liam Hemsworth Hooked Up While He Was With Miley Cyrus
On Monday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Bravo daddy Andy Cohen graduated from stirring the pot between reality TV stars and moved on to the big leagues of stirring shit between A-listers! After asking Jennifer Lawrence to respond to rumors that Miley Cyrus’ song, Flowers referenced “a secret fling” that JLaw had with her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth while he was in a relationship with Miley. She was quick to deny deny deny.
The whole Hot Slut of the Day feature started with paying tribute to hotness from the past, and I usually only made humans HSOTD but threw in the occasional cartoon character and 80s toy. But when I started to make animals HSOTD, the entire Hot Slut game was changed, and it’s never been the same since! Three animals have won the highly coveted (emphasis on “high” because you gotta be high to covet that shit) Hot Slut of the Year: Spaghetti Cat (2008), the late great Freya (2022), and STAINS (2009)!
The Aughts were the golden era of reality shit shows because you couldn’t turn on the TV without a new one hitting you in the face. It’s Me or the Dog was a British reality show that debuted on UK’s Channel 4 in 2005. It was like a dog owner’s answer to Supernanny. It followed dog trainer Victoria Stillwell as she went into homes to help humans responsibly train dogs who weren’t acting right. The show was a hit and came to Animal Planet in the US in 2008. STAINS starred in the 13th episode of season one in January 2009, but before the episode even aired, he became a breakout star when a preview clip on YouTube of his hypnotic cupcake eyes went viral. Victoria was using the cupcakes to teach him restraint, but to us viewers, it looked like she was cruelly taunting him! Victoria should’ve been immediately put into handcuffs for animal abuse. Since all of us would probably widen our eyes like, “Is this trick serious,” over being teased with cupcakes, everyone embraced STAINS, and he became a breakout star.
2009 was a big year for STAINS (and no, his humans didn’t capitalize his name like that. I did that so his name could match his capitalized eyes). STAINS became an instant meme, and The Soup, where I discovered him, made him their Entertainer of the Year. STAINS is most likely in heaven now, and yes, heaven is definitely a giant plate of all the cupcakes he can eat. The original post is after the cut.
Who’s That Girl isn’t only a 1987 Madonna song and movie; it’s also what I screamed when I first laid my eyeballs upon the glittering ginger goddess, and Alabama rose that is Phoebe Denise Price. Long before Dlisted was even a tickle in the internet’s ballsack (just nod and pretend that made sense), PP was ruling Hollywood! GoFugYourself was one of the first blogs to give Phoebe a much-needed stage on the internet, but I fell in love with her while going through photo agency websites and noticing how much they covered her. I had to know who she was and quickly discovered that she’s a WORLD-RENOWNED supermodel (no citation needed), a bona fide Hollywood star (see: her role as Customer with Car in an episode of The X-Files), and fashion icon. PP is fun, over-the-top, and gives a fuck while not giving a fuck at the same time. So I wrote about her over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, so much so that readers began to send me disturbing and offensive emails like, “Stop posting about Phoebe Price.” And yes, those readers now lie in a plot in my brain labeled “dead to me.”
As a birthday present to myself in 2007, I made Phoebe Price Hot Slut of the Day. And Chicken Cutlets ended up winning Hot Slut of 2007, becoming my favorite HSOTY winner ever. PP proudly wore the HSOTY crown, but as I mentioned in my goodbye announcement post, she re-branded Hot Slut as Hot Babe. An activist! Speaking of, here’s one of many favorite PP stories. The year was 2008, and a little unknown fashion brand called Channel or Chennile, or something, was having a party at their store on Robertson in West Hollywood. PP graciously agreed to give that no-name brand some attention by gracing their small party with her superstar presence. But some uneducated PR girls blocked her from getting in, claiming she wasn’t on the list. It is the understatement of understatements to call this The Crime of the Century! PP wasn’t having it and vowed to sue Chanel if they didn’t immediately apologize to her. Behold, the Norma Rae of Not Being On The List!
About a second later, Phoebe declared victory when she discovered that the Chanel store on Robertson had closed:
Okay, in actuality, that store was just getting renovated at the time. But the Chanel on Robertson did end up closing this year. They were obviously so shaken up and paralyzed with embarrassment over being called out by Phoebe Price that it took them 15 years to finally put a Going Out Of Business Because Phoebe Price Called Us Out sign on their window. The power of Phoebe Price truly is like no other!

If you spiraled into a whirlpool of sadness over the news that robohost Ryan Seacrest was leaving Live with Kelly and Ryan because you can’t get enough of his unsettling eyes staring at you through the TV screen, I need to tell you to get help. But I also need to tell you that you don’t need to be sad anymore since Ryan got yet another TV gig. Ryan will take over as host of Wheel of Fortune when condescending porcupine Pat Sajak retires next year. The good news is that it looks like Vanna White will be back! Vanna reportedly hasn’t gotten a raise in 18 years and makes $3 million a year compared to Pat’s reported $15 million a year. So hopefully, when Ryan Seacrest makes his debut on WoF, we won’t be able to see him because we’ll be blinded by the sparkles shooting off the diamonds that Vanna bought with her raise money – TVLine
Somebody check on Nicholas Hoult immediately because he’s lost out on another big role since David Corenswet (aka the projectionist from Pearl) is the new Superman, alongside Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane – The A.V. Club
Move over, Chet Hanks! There’s a new humiliating relative of Tom Hanks in town! The Oscar winner’s niece, Carly Reeves, had a full-blown on-camera meltdown on the ABC reality show Claim To Fame, bellowing in nepo baby agony after being booted off the show on the season 2 premiere, screaming, “I should have more camera time!” and went on a frenzied tirade so chaotic it made Chet look well-adjusted.
