The best 'Potter'-inspired stuff money can buy

If there's one thing a decade of "Harry Potter" has taught us, it's that the fans' obsession knows no bounds.

From Pygmy Puffs to an original oil painting of Mad-Eye Moody, we've rounded up some of the wackiest - or maybe the best - "Potter"-inspired stuff. Check it out in the gallery above.

'Dark Knight Rises' teaser poster hits Web

'Dark Knight Rises' teaser poster hits Web

We've got a year to go before "The Dark Knight Rises" swoops into theaters on July 20, 2012, but there's already a teaser poster available to whet your appetites (as if you'd need that).

The poster bears nothing more than the Batman symbol outlined by buildings presumably in Gotham City plus when the film is slated to arrive, but that's likely because we already know the cast by heart.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, "The Dark Knight Rises" will star Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and "Inception's" Tom Hardy as Bane.

Back in April, studio Warner Bros. revealed that Hardy's "Inception" co-stars Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are also part of the cast, with Cotillard playing an employee at Bruce Wayne's company, and Gordon-Levitt playing a Gotham City cop.

The men think pink on 'The Bachelorette'

The men think pink on 'The Bachelorette'

Ashley welcomed us to Taiwan on last night's edition of "The Bachelorette," calling it a part of Asia that few people know about.  That comment seemed a bit odd, given how many "Made in Taiwan" items I've seen in stores.

Chris tells the six remaining suitors that it's the 100th anniversary of Taiwan, so it's very important that they're here (This is Taiwan's prize for reaching the century mark?). There will be three one-on-one dates this week, as well as a three-on-one date. The one-on-ones will not have roses in play.

The first one-on-one date went to Constantine, who made it to the final six despite saying about seven words an episode. Ashley says her relationship with Constantine is running kind of slow. Actually, it's so slow that Ashley has to buy Constantine his ticket for their train ride to a Taiwanese village.

Another book on the way from Snooki

Another book on the way from Snooki

Snooki's book part deux is on its way.

Simon & Schuster has confirmed the company will publish a second book from "Jersey Shore" cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. "Gorilla Beach" will be a follow up to Polizzi's first book "A Shore Thing," which ended up on the extended New York Times bestseller list.

According to the book's description, the new novel's action will center on Giovanna "Gia" Spumanti and her cousin Isabella "Bella" Rizzoli who "are going to have the sexiest summer ever."

Hmmm....that plot sounds familiar. The second novel is slated for release in May 2012, just in time for the summer reading lists.

Zooey Deschanel fires back over 'cow' comment

Zooey Deschanel fires back over 'cow' comment

Zooey Deschanel is biting back at an L.A. Times opinion piece that suggested the actress came across as a "snobby cow" in a recent interview.

Talking to USA Today about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's attendance at Saturday's BAFTA event, Deschanel seemed to fret that the downtown L.A. area where the black tie gathering was hosted was too rundown for the regal couple. "I just don't want them to see the worst of L.A.," she reportedly said.

When writer Patt Morrison saw that comment, she accused Deschanel of looking down her nose at the district.  "I cannot apologize enough to Ms. Deschanel that in some places the sidewalks do not smell like Jo Malone candles," she wrote.  (Reading this prompted me to familiarize myself with Jo Malone candles, which I learned are "the easiest and most evocative way to create a luxurious ambiance.")

What's the verdict on Pia Toscano's 'This Time'?

As promised, Pia Toscano's single "This Time" has arrived.

It's the former "Idol" contestant's first single from an upcoming album that's expected to drop later this year, now that she's signed with "Idol" mentor Jimmy Iovine's Interscope.

The track, which Toscano performed last week on the "American Idol Live" tour, premiered on Ryan Seacrest's radio show yesterday, and it's all about a woman who's decided that this time will be the last time for a no-good lover.
