Click Chick: Honey Boo Boo gets raise, supports LGBT
Honey Boo Boo is getting a raise. And apparently, she and her family didn't have to ask. Honey Boo Boo stars with her family in the TLC reality show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." She and the fams will now earn $15,000-$20,000 per episode. The show has wrapped up for the season, but you can still catch the family's Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials. The star of the show is getting headlines for acceptance. During her "Uncle Poodle's" appearance on the show she said, "Everybody's a little gay." Her mom June's assessment of the uncle is a little less refined. Watch the discussion.
New Oscars Host: Well, Seth MacFarlane, the creator of and voice behind many of the characters on "Family Guy" will host the next Academy Awards. He has hosted the Writers Guild Awards and more recently "Saturday Night Live." I think he's going to be funny. Anyone's got to be better than James Franco. The Hollywood Reporter chatted with him about how he got the gig.
It's Neeson Season: That's the repeated refrain in Liam Neeson: The Musical. It's basically an homage video that sums up and pays tribute to Neeson's career. I have to say, it's pretty amusing and well done.
Caught on Camera: Country star Jason Aldean is saying he's sorry. This after photographers snapped photos of him playing kissy face in a West Hollywood, Calif., bar with former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr. The singer, who's been married for 11 years to his high school sweetheart apologized, according to People. On Twitter, he wrote, "I screwed up. I had too much to drink." But he added he left the bar alone. Kerr reportedly said she didn't know Aldean was married.
New on DVD: It's Tuesday -- time to break down what's new on DVD. The most notable: "Dark Shadows." It was a bit of a disappointment because it really didn't know what it wanted to be. But it had pretty good production design. There's also "People Like Us" starring Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks. Pine plays a guy with money troubles who needs to seek out a sister (Banks) he never knew to share an inheritance.
New Hollytots: Speaking of children, Drew Barrymore and her new hubby are the proud parents of Olive Barrymore Kopelmann. And Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James Toth to the world.
