Kristen Chenoweth is dating The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka. I’m sure I can see the attraction, but considering all the hot tub hijinks on that show, I hope she’s had all her shots.
Evidently British civil servants are thinking a lot about gay sex. It seems that traditionally, British law requires that a marriage be consummated to be completely legal, and nobody is quite sure what “consummated” means for a gay couple or a lesbian couple. The law defines it for heterosexual couples as “complete penetration of the vagina by the penis, although it does not matter if a condom or ejaculation is involved.” They considered amending the law to remove the consummation requirement for all couples, but felt that any changes to heterosexual marriage would bring opposition. So what is consummation to you?
Denis O’Hare is returning to Law & Order SVU as Father Shea. It doesn’t sounds like Father Shea has a great time of it, being pulled from his car and beaten. “Returning” is slightly loaded here – O’Hare originally played Father Shea on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and the shows don’t typically mix like this.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are producing a ridiculous $55,000 handbag with prescription meds on it with artist Damien Hirst. Only 12 will be made, because there are only 12 people crazy enough to spend $55,000 on a handbag.
For the past few weeks, io9.com has been posting Fan Fic Fridays, where a story has been dissected Mystery Science Theater style. They’re discontinuing the feature because of fairly aware reasons for a Gawker blog. Mostly, they got a lot of feedback that while it might be fine to mock a Hollywood movie, picking on an unknown fanfic writer when you’re a giant media company is just mean.
From December 2 to February 15, Mana Contemporary in Jersey City will be hosting a rare exhibition of out artist Keith Haring’s larger artworks.

Quentin Tarantino has an explanation for why the song Frank Ocean wrote for Django Unchained isn’t in the movie. “Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention. So I didn’t want to cheapen his effort. But, the song is fantastic, and when Frank decides to unleash it on the public, they’ll realize it then.”
Adam Levine is not a fan of Honey Boo Boo. “Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f*cking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F*ck those people. You can put that in the magazine: F*ck those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that—like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting.”
