While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed....

  • The female-centric sitcom wins again. On the heels of Zooey Deschanel's "New Girl" and Whitney Cummings' "Whitney" getting full season orders, CBS announces that "2 Broke Girls" is sticking around for a full season as well. [CBS]
  • Nasir "Nas" Jones can't recall who told him about it, but yeah, he's heard those rumors that Amy Winehouse's "Me and Mr. Jones" is about him too. [XXL]
  • The perfect treat to settle on the couch with as you watch those promised new episodes of "Arrested Development": A fantastically parodied Ben & Jerry's flavor called "Tobias Funke's I Just Blue Myself." If those shows ever make it to TV, we demand Ben & Jerry's put this blueberry ice cream into production post haste. [Vulture]
  • Soon-to-be-divorced star James Marsden is moving on to join Tina Fey and the "30 Rock" crew for a multi-episode arc. [THR]
  • Speaking of "Arrested Development" and "30 Rock"  - this Venn Diagram, intersecting those two aforementioned comedies with "Parks and Recreation," explains so much about why we heart them so. [SplitSider.com via BuzzFeed]

Happy 50th anniversary, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

Iconic actress Audrey Hepburn is no longer with us, and neither is the author who wrote the novella that started it all, Truman Capote, but the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" remains an integral part of our cultural memory, even 50 years on.

Half a century ago today the movie was released to an audience, who watched - as you can see in the trailer below - Hepburn's Holly Golightly step up to the window of Tiffany's, coffee cup in hand and wearing the little black dress that's since sold for just under $1 million.

She may not have been the Holly Golightly Capote envisioned, but Hepburn's portrayal earned the actress an Oscar nomination.

Zsa Zsa's husband plans to run for mayor of L.A.

In these civic minded times, Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, wants to take lead of Los Angeles as the city's mayor.

He tells CNN that he's running for mayor in 2013, and is planning to announce his intention via billboard either today or Thursday, depending on the weather. (Obviously, they couldn't put up a billboard in the rain, now could they?) Von Anhalt told CNN a full press release on his candidacy will be held on Friday at 11 a.m.

Von Anhalt explained that he'd like to run for mayor because he wants to take on L.A.'s problems with homelessness and unemployment. “People know me," he says. "They know I tell the truth even if it hurts.”

According to Von Anhalt, current Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa “is more of an actor now. He’s forgotten about City Hall.”

Method Man raps about Sour Patch Kids

Because there’s no better way to maintain street cred than putting out a song about candy, Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man has released a Sour Patch Kids rap.

According to Kotaku, the rapper’s video for "World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)" is in conjunction with the Sour Patch Kids-themed video game Sour Fling and upcoming game World Gone Sour.

In the song, Method Man raps about the chewy treats as mischievous "little dudes" that will "throw bleach in your laundry then unfold your origami."

"This ain't a candy rap, this is where the candy attacks."

What do you think of Method Man’s ode to the sugary snack?

'Glee' creators tell a 'Horror Story'

After the wildly successful "Glee," what does one do for an encore?

A twisted, not-for-the-kids horror television series, of course.

Before "Glee," executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk were best known for the FX series "Nip/Tuck," and anyone familiar with that knows it wasn't exactly family viewing, either.
