A&E’s Storage Wars: Another Staged Reality Show

Dave HesterStorage Wars, a show on A&E showing the fast-paced, risky, and often rewarding business of buying storage units, is a favorite of many during a television era defined by similar reality shows.

Today, news broke that Dave Hester, most likely the most despised cast member of Storage Wars, filed a lawsuit against the producers of the show. The suit claimed that Hester was fired for voicing his complaints of the show’s staging of events which included planting items in lockers for the cast to bid on, as well as fronting money for some members who were financially unable to make a bid.

Did Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift Have a Date?

According to Page Six of the New York Post, America’s young, shy, pop-country starlet may have went on a date with America’s favorite terrible quarterback. After reportedly “chatting it up” at a pre-Oscars party over the weekend, Taylor Swift and Tim Tebow were spotted together outside of a restaurant.

From NYP:

“After dinner, he walked her out,” a source told the website, adding that it was unclear whether the get-together was a date. “Then he walked back in to join two other people. I think they may both have been with their agents.”

If they are dating, hopefully T-Swift has already started working on songs for the break-up. What rhymes with “shitty quarterback?”

Kim Kardashian Looking to “Get to Know” Jeremy Lin

Probably should have seen this one coming.

First she went after America’s Boy Tim Tebow. She was rejected.

Now she’s going for America’s NBA-Player-For-A-Week-Or-Two, Jeremy Lin.

Kim Kardashian, America’s Big-Booty’d-Fame-Whore, is reportedly about to be “set-up” on a date with Knicks superstar point guard Jeremy Lin.

A “source” told MediaTO that Kardashian “thinks [Lin] is cute.” It also helps that she is friends with Melo’s wife Lala. “It’s going to be a double date,” said the source.

The whole story seems to be shady, a product of Linsanity. A source close to Kardashian told the Huffington Post, “this is not true and there’s never been any conversations about this.”

But didn’t they also say that her marriage to Kris Humphries was legit?

“A Warrior’s Heart”: Hollywood’s Lacrosse Love Story

Check your flows and grab your fiddle sticks, bros. It’s time to hit the movies to see the first true lacrosse movie.

“A Warrior’s Heart,” starring no one that you’ve heard of, hits theaters on December 2nd.

According to imdb.com, the plot of  A Warrior’s Heart is as follows:

In shock and denial over his Marine father’s death in battle, star Lacrosse player Conor Sullivan, always a maverick and a hothead, starts acting out in self-destructive ways that have his mom, Claire, at her wit’s end. But arduous training in a wilderness Lacrosse camp under the tutelage of his dad’s old combat buddy, Sgt. Major Duke Wayne, opens Conor’s eyes to the true meaning of maturity, sportsmanship and manhood…

A Warrior’s Heart promises to be the perfect mix between Dear John, The Notebook, and the game of lacrosse:

Tom Hanks’ Rapping Son

Thuggin' in a flannel!

Who would have thought that one of the greatest actors of our time, a man responsible for iconic characters such as Forrest Gump and Captain John H. Miller, is also the father of a wannabe rapper?

That’s right; going by the stage name of Chet Haze, Chester Marlon Hanks, with the help of his last name, is trying to climb to the top of the rap game.

He thinks outside of the box with his raps as shown through his remix of Wiz Khalifa’s hit Black and Yellow, a task that has never before been attempted. Haze, a student at Northwestern University in the heart of the thug-ish city of Evanston, Illinois, turned Black and Yellow into White and Purple:
