This week’s Life with Lo is all about bringing in the new year. I’ll share some advice for getting off to a great start by setting goals for yourself, staying motivated and leaving behind friends that may slow you down. I’ll also explain why I hate New Year’s Resolutions and the whole #newyearnewme craze. Check it out below!
Hold on to those Movember manes for a little longer gentleman, because #glitterbeard is running rapid on social media.
First came the “beardstache,” then the “man bun” and now the glitter beard joins our elite list of hunky grooming trends gone viral. Coined by social media duo the Gay Beards, who decorate their beards with ornaments, flowers and paint, the glitter beard literally consists of just two things: facial fuzz and a whole lot of sparkle.
This week alone, the trend instantly became a popular Instagram and Twitter hashtag as plenty of men jumped on the bandwagon, posting merry photos of their bushy bristles.
Just when America thought child actor/former blockbuster starlet/ art freak basket case Shia LaBeouf’s decision-making could not get any more peculiar, he decided to stream himself watching the bulk of his filmography for three days straight, a performance art project named #ALLMYMOVIES.
Yes, for 36 consecutive hours, we can all watch LaBeouf watch himself… in a frigid New York City movie theater…with buttered popcorn and Coca Cola…for no apparent reason.
Remember that ‘90s Jim Carey movie The Truman Show, in which Carey played this super nice, super normal guy unaware that every single second of his life has been filmed and broadcast to the entire world since before he was even born? This is pretty similar. Except that film was awesome and this is…different.
After a four-month long summer hiatus, CW’s Jane the Virgin came back with an adorable season 2 premiere last night full of two-faced nuns, certified sociopaths and of course, the most adorable newborn ever created.
When we last saw Jane, she had finally given birth to her cute little bundle of joy, a baby boy that she named Mateo. And not ten minutes after he was born, he was kidnapped by Sin Rostro a.k.a Jane’s baby daddy’s sister’s ex-lover, a criminal mastermind who gives delinquents plastic surgery so they can escape the law and start life anew.
They say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but let’s be real: it’s Autumn. Not just because of football or bold lip colors, but also because Cookie and the gang are back to fight once again over that multi-million dollar empire.
Yes, FOX’s Empire is that loud uncle at the barbeque who likes to make everyone uncomfortable by drinking way too many Heineken beers, while forcing them to engage in weirdo 90s dance moves such as “the bump.” Cringe-worthy, but extremely fulfilling nonetheless. So to celebrate its second season premiere September 23rd, a recap of all the melodramatic moments that pretty much killed us dead last season is in session.

Listen, y’all. I am hurt. I’m disgusted, mortified, traumatized, and confused. I know y’all are too.
I know if you all are like me, you are currently debating on calling the FCC to demand an answer for this threat to sanity being allowed to infiltrate our television airways every Thursday, and writing a strongly worded and emotionally loaded email to Shonda Rhimes asking how she could put us through the stress we encountered in this episode. Especially in the final two minutes.
Although I actually fell off my couch this week and I am still struggling to sort through my emotions, I still have to get you all through the foolishness of this episode.
Bear with me, good people, as the struggle ensues.
Funny girl comedian Amy Schumer hosted the 2015 MTV Movie Awards Sunday. Although this year’s awards show was pretty much an uneventful collection of presenter banter followed by yet ANOTHER win by Shailene Woodley, there were some major OMG moments along the way. The moment Vin Diesel briefly sang Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” to honor his late Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker. The moment John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars, got teary-eyed after Shailene Woodley dedicated her award for Best Female Performance to him. The moment Jennifer Lopez challenged the cast of Magic Mike XXL to give us all a little show, and Channing Tatum accepted. Good looking out, Jenny.

Earlier this week, Comedy Central announced that political jokester Trevor Noah will succeed current host Jon Stewart in late 2015, which many are pretty pumped about. But, for those who have no idea who this ambiguously tanned man in a suit is, here are five facts worth knowing about the entertainer.
1. He’s foreign: Don’t worry. He is NOT part of this weird 21st century pop culture British invasion America seems to be suffering from. Noah was actually born and raised in South Africa during apartheid when interracial relationships were illegal, which is pretty awkward considering his mother is a black South African and his father is Caucasian. As a result, Noah’s humor is primarily based upon global perceptions and ethnic material. Fun fact: this dude is crazy fluent in an absurd amount of languages including German, Japanese and Sotho…whatever that is.
It’s back! ABC Family premiered the unscripted prank show Freak Out during 13 Nights of Halloween. Now, the series is back with a vengeance. The show debuts bigger scares and even bigger reactions.
In each episode, an unsuspecting person or ‘mark’ is faced with their worst fears. You’re probably wondering who would set someone up to face their fears, but the culprits are usually the ones they love the most — their friends and family. Every prank is specifically catered to turn a normal everyday situation into someone’s worst nightmare. Freak Out captures each scenario, starting from the planning of the prank, until the mark discovers their worst nightmare is nothing more than a joke. Trust me, their reactions are priceless!
What sets Freak Out apart from other prank shows, like TruTv’s Impractical Jokers, is the fear factor that Freak Out brings to television. Not only are unsuspecting marks put in funny and embarrassing situations, but they are also scared out of their minds. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a spooky twist?
Catch Freak Out at 8:30/7:30c Wednesdays on ABC Family!
Just when you thought reality shows on VH1 could not get any crazier, a new series called Walk of Shame Shuttle debuted Wednesday night. The idea behind the show was introduced by former University of Michigan student, Kellyann Wargo.
