SNL: Timberlake & Samberg Are Motherlovers

Justin Timberlake returned to SNL this weekend for his third stint as Super Host. Timberlake and Andy Samberg picked up where they left off with a Digital Short follow-up to their viral video smash, "D*** in a Box." With a little help from Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson, the two were able to kick up their really-not-ready-for-prime-time brand of humor just in time for Mother's Day. Uh, make that, "All Up Under The Covers Day." (Watch. Gag. Laugh. Repeat.)

Real Housewives Finale Feuds

Photo: Real Housewives of NYC Season 2 on BravoThe last episode of The Real Housewives of NYC aired last night, and let me tell you there was drama all around for everyone.

Let me break it down for you:

Jill had a meeting for her upcoming charity event. She reminds me of a Jewish grandmother because she is always providing snacks and food for all of her meetings. She says at one point, "I'm uncomfortable if you're not eating or drinking." I'm jealous, I wish I was there helping for a charity event and hanging with the girls.

However, nothing stays happy in the city for long...

Are They Sure It's Not Called 'The Curse' of the Sorcerer's Apprentice?

Lucky for Disney, this one wasn't their fault: See Full Story at NY Post

The Borrowed Blog: Weekly Roundup

  • Disney's new Nicholas Cage flick, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," took a horrible turn last night in Times Square. While filming a car chase scene at about 1:00 a.m. in rainy midtown, a stunt driver lost control of a Ferrari and slammed into the front doors of an occupied Sbarro Restaurant at 47th Street and Seventh Avenue. The NY Post has obtained video of the crash that left two people injured.

  • Two Hollywood hotties battled it out at the box office this weekend and the clear winner just happens to be this year's Sexiest Man Alive. Hugh Jackman led the pack as Wolverine, with his prequel to the X-Men trilogy, "X-Men Origins," taking in an estimated $87 million. On neighboring screens across the country, former "SMA" Matthew McConaughey debuted in second place, but with a disappointing tally of only $15.3 million in ticket sales.

  • Suffering from rumors of their own less-than-stellar sales, OK! Magazine may finally be jumping the shark and shifting their celebrity tell-tale tabloid format to more of a "lifestyle" mag.

  • broke the news that David Hasselhoff was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being found unconscious by his 16-year-old daughter in his Encino, California home. Hasselhoff is reportedly being treated for alcohol poisoning.

  • After storming off The Celebrity Apprentice last week, Joan Rivers returned to the show last night with no apologies and a fierce determination to win it all. The Donald, who's still basking in the renewed press Joan's antics have brought, fired both of her team mates, Jesse James and Clint Black -- leaving Joan to go head-to-head with her arch enemy, Annie Duke, in next week's season finale. Joan, still standing by her "Annie's like a Nazi" comment, even took to her Twitter page as yesterday's episode aired to tweet her dismay for Duke and Brande Roderick, who was also axed in last night's boardroom. The 3-hour live finale will air on Sunday, May 10th.

  • Photo: Jenny McCarthy looks stunning at the 135th Annual Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs
  • Our hat's off to Mine That Bird, the 50-to-1 longshot that won the 135th Annual Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on Saturday. Though it didn't take long for the thoroughbred's owner, Mark Allen, to learn that the winners circle takes you straight to the media spotlight before the celebratory champagne even loses its fizz. But since I don't have the energy to delve into a two-year-old Alaskan bribery scandal this week, I'm just going to run a picture of Jenny McCarthy in a big, pretty hat and call it a day. Hats, good. Bribery, bad. Mojitos always welcome.

  • And finally, our thoughts and prayers go out to David Cook and his family. The Season 7 American Idol winner made the sad announcement at Sunday's Race for Hope in DC, that his brother, 36-year-old Adam Cook, lost his long battle with brain cancer on Saturday.
David, at his family's urging, decided to keep his commitment to Race for Hope and ran in the 5k charity run instead of flying home to be with his family. Race for Hope is an annual fund raising event that benefits the National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. David spoke with WUSA just before the race and told his supporters, "My brother and I had an amazing relationship. His advice was always stay the course. There was no other place I would rather be than here."

To date, Race for Hope has raised over $1.7 million -- money that will go towards building awareness and raising vital funds for research and patient support. If you would like to honor Adam Cook, and support patients of all ages who continue to suffer from brain tumors, you can make a donation at
