Our top moments of the week:
15. Orange You Glad You Did This? Award:Now that Anderson Cooper has come out of the closet about his admiration for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, it's only fitting that they go out on a proper date. On his new daytime talk show, theJersey Shore star takes Cooper for his first spray tan. "I had no idea that Mr. Anderstand had muscles," Snooki says, as a sheepish, shirtless Cooper undergoes the process. "So when he took off his shirt, he had, like, a huge peanut muscle. Cool." Cooper, at least, seems pleased with the results: "Wow! I've never had a tan line like that." Does anyone speak Guidette? Please tell us that a "peanut muscle" isn't what we think it is.

Yes, everyone knows deep down that Colbert isn't really like his truthiness-loving persona, but he refuses to break. "I forgot for a moment; I'm so sorry," Gore explains. "You forgot what? You have completely lost me!" Colbert exclaims, before putting air quotes around Al Gore's name and bidding him adieu.
13. Least Self-Aware Reality Show Contestant (a highly competitive category): Look, we all find overconfident reality-show contestants infinitely entertaining, but when it crosses over into the delusional, a line must be drawn (see No. 11). On the Big Brother finale, Adam is peeved that Rachel took Porsche instead of him to the final two, but tells Julie Chen that the fiery redhead, who eventually won, made the right choice for herself. "If I was in the final two, I would've won," he says emphatically. For what exactly? Being useless in practically every single challenge? Ambling through the whole season without any game plan whatsoever? Shaving your beard? Knowing90210 trivia? In that case, yes, Adam, yes, you definitely would've won. Read More...
