Second chances on 'SYTYCD'

On Thursday night’s results show - which opened with a tribute to dance legend and director of The Ailey School Denise Jefferson, who died Saturday after battling ovarian cancer - the judges were feeling extra charitable.

After Lauren, Kent and AdeChike found themselves safe from elimination, Robert and Jose performed solos in an attempt to stay in the competition. Billy, however, didn’t take the stage, despite being cleared by the doctor.

There are two ways of looking at this situation:

Eminem comes to the defense of Taylor Swift

He’s had choice words for everyone from Britney Spears to Christina Aguilera to Mariah Carey over the years, but now Eminem is coming to the defense of Taylor Swift.

In the August issue of Spin magazine, the outspoken rapper reflects upon the 20-year-old country queen’s infamous moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards in which Kanye West, 33, interrupted her Best Female Video acceptance speech, saying that Beyonce deserved her award.

“He shouldn’t have done that, man. I mean, she’s a little girl,” Em, 37, told Spin.

Who's seeing 'Salt' this weekend?

Who's seeing 'Salt' this weekend?

“Salt” is probably one of the most anticipated films of the summer. Not only have the trailers promised a solid, engaging action drama, but it also heralds the return of Angelina Jolie as a badass who takes no prisoners.

Critics are offering plenty of prior warning about the inconceivability of the plot, but some were able to look past any plot problems and enjoy the ride.

As The Hollywood Reporter puts it, “While preposterous at every turn, ‘Salt’ is a better Bond movie than most recent Bond movies, as its makers keep the stunts real and severely limit CGI gimmickry. This is a slick, light summer entertainment that should throw considerable coin into Sony's coffers while re-establishing (if it needs re-establishing) Jolie's bona fides as an action star.”

'Sweet Valley' twins are back...and much more adult

The heroines of the "Sweet Valley" franchise, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, are ready for a comeback. The book "Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later" is set to hit shelves in early 2011.

The original "Sweet Valley" books chronicled the girls' lives in the often idealized, always ridiculously melodramatic town of Sweet Valley, California.

Francine Pascal created the world of "Sweet Valley," which included several incarnations, including "Sweet Valley University" and "Sweet Valley Kids" (chronologically, they were all over the map). This resulted in, quite literally, hundreds of books. Merchandise and a couple of TV series existed as well.

Whedon and Abrams enter the great 3-D debate

Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams came together for a meeting of the minds at Entertainment Weekly's "The Visionaries" panel at Comic-Con, something of a "dream come true" panel for fans of both writers.

When the subject turned to Hollywood's new fascination with 3-D movies, the duo had a little disagreement.

While Whedon said he’s " totally into it,” Abrams isn’t as in love.
