Zac Efron’s Kissing Problems

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Child Stars,

Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer in New Year's EveZac Efron's on-screen kiss with Michelle Pfeiffer "wasn't very sexy."

The High School Musical hunk - who appears alongside the actress in new ensemble movie New Year's Eve - admitted locking lips with the star didn't go as smoothly as he had hoped, and he ended up having to "spit" on the floor right before the smooch.

"Those things are best to do spontaneous. Have fun and be in the moment. I definitely thought about how it was going to go down. In my mind, the way I pictured it, it was going to be perfect, very romantic, very leading man. Then of course, as we went to film it, right when I went to dip her, a huge piece of confetti went straight into my mouth. I didn't want to finish the kiss like that, so I spit and went for it. That's actually in the movie."

"It wasn't very sexy, but it was cute," Michelle added.

Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper in 2011

“I’ve already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously, but I think it’s Willow’s year to go down. In 2011, I want to offend a new Palin.”

Kathy Griffin was her usual energetic self on New Year’s Eve  -- minus loads of foul language -- when she co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. Her plan for the new year? To make Willow Palin regret using Facebook.

Griffin explained: “She’s called people a f----t on Facebook a couple of times. You don’t throw around the f-word without hearing from me about it.”

VIDEO: Snooki’s Ball Dropped Anyway

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Late Night, Reality, Specials, Cable, MTV, Video,

Viewers might have been confused on New Year’s Eve, watching the festivities as recorded by MTV.

Snooki was present in Time Square, along with her fellow Jersey Shore cast members … but wasn’t she supposed to be in New Jersey? The reality star’s ball drop did go on the air as planned -- because it was recorded the night before.

Snooki’s ball was removed from Time Square after officials decided that only one ball would be dropping in New York’s famous block. Instead, the Snooks was dropped in her own hometown of Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

You can watch the entire video above.

Snooki’s Ball Moved to Jersey for Ball Drop

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Late Night, Reality, Specials, Cable, MTV, News,

SnookiThere is only one New Year’s Eve ball that falls in Times Square -- and the city of New York is going to keep it that way.

The official ball drop will be officiated by Mayor Bloomberg and Dick Clark, a staple of the annual event.

MTV announced recently that Snooki, of Jersey Shore fame, would be dropping from a ball during their separate celebration, but the city wouldn’t have it.

Instead, Snooki has been moved, appropriately, to New Jersey. The ball arrived on scene early on Wednesday, with a large “Snooki” spelled out in lights affixed to it.

Who knows? Maybe New Jersey just started their own New Year’s Eve tradition.

Kathy Griffin’s Comedy: Out of Control?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Late Night, Reality, Specials, Cable, Gossip, Video,

!Warning! The following clip contains offensive and explicit language:

What was a routine New Year’s Eve segment turned into much more when hecklers, a live mic and were thrown into the mix. Since the camera had cut away to go to commercial during Griffin’s comments, it’s highly likely the comedienne thought she was off the air.

Does that make her comments okay? Either way, Griffin lashed out at a bystander in the crowd. While her comments were likely meant to be amusing, it’s doubtful the audience thought anything she said was funny. “Screw you!” The redhead screamed at an onlooker, not shown by the cameras, before she proceeded to make her vulgar comment (heard in entirety in the clip above).

Times Square Ball Flashes with Multi-Colored LEDs

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech,

Times Square BallReady for New Years Eve? It may interest you to know that finally the Times Square Ball has gone green on its 100th anniversary. Unveiled at Macy’s earlier this month, the ball is constructed of Waterford crystal,  is twice as bright as past ones, and will now have more color and energy-saving LED effects thanks to Philips.

Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance says, “It’s that same spirit of renewal and new beginnings that brings people here from across the globe, in person or in spirit while watching from home, on New Year’s Eve every year.”

We don’t know about that, but it certainly wouldn’t be a proper New Year without it. Have a good one, Gear Livers!
