Why don’t you do something? The 2013 Do Something Awards took place on July 31 in Hollywood, Ca. hosted by Sophia Bush and Jason Dundas.
The event is aimed at showcasing celebrities and young activist that have a positive impact on the world, shaping it into a positive place. It is the one of the few awards show honoring charitable work in Hollywood instead of patting celebs on the back for recording a hit album or a successful role in a movie. Even Jennifer Hudson mentioned that Osbourne was there to address important matters instead of critique who was best dressed of the night. Clothing and style had no importance for the stars that were radiating positive energy. The energy that impacts the world towards goodness.
Honoree Jennifer Hudson held back tears while being honored her Do Something award for being co-founder of the Julian D. King foundation. The foundation is named after her nephew that was brutally murdered in Chicago and provides much-needed school supplies to school children from low income families.
“I wasn’t going to cry, but I’m a cry baby so I can’t help it,”she said in her acceptance speech. “It just shows how much it warms my heart to see so many blessed and from our blessings in honor of my nephew…It’s one thing to be a celebrity, but it means nothing if you can’t help somebody. ”
Other celebs honored for their charitable work included Patrick Dempsey, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, LL Cool J, and Kelly Osbourne.
“These days celebrity is almost synonymous with spoiled rich brat. A couple more tantrums in front of paparazzi and we’ll be there 100 percent so it’s nice to be recognized as a human being trying to put some positivity out there in the world, as a guy who hasn’t forgotten where he came from and as part of a group of us not living up to the brat title.” explained LL Cool J. LL recieved an award for his work with summer camp Jump & Ball as wll as his work with Chrysalis, an organization that helps homeless people gain employment.
Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson was recognized for his “labor of love” Tie The Knot, the marriage equality advocate group he founded with his husband Justin Mikita last year. “I am obviously honored every time [our show] gets any sort of recognition, but this is definitely more special to me personally. It doesn’t feel like work. It feels like something that I have to do, something so integral to who [I am]. To get an award for something that is in your veins is really moving. We are very lucky as actors to have the platform that we have to be able to bring attention to so many worthy causes.”
The host, Sophia Bush changed four times and stayed happy and radiating all night, despite a choke up when acknowledging friend Cory Monteith’s tragic death, earlier this month.
“I don’t know how to phrase it because you don’t want to say you’re expecting that from anyone, but sadly I think there are some people who we watch as they sort of unravel, and if something like that were to happen, you’d be sad but not necessarily shocked,” Bush said. “You’d just be so sad that they never got help.”
Bush mentioned that the tragedy was in the fact that Monteith actually reached out and received help for the substance abuse. “It’s, I think, more emotional for the people who knew and loved him because he was working toward that,” she said. “He had just gone to get help.”
But it wasn’t until Daniel Maree, for Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, an organization he created to amend the “stand your ground” law in Florida following the Trayvon Martine case.
To lighten up the mood, Sara Bareilles and Fitz and The Tantrums performed.

The Bachelor Fantasy Suites Promo – Peter’s Final Three Are Having a “Slumber Party”
It’s fantasy suites on The Bachelor Season 24 baby, but there’s a lot of drama ahead as Madison informs Pilot Pete (Peter Weber) that she’s a virgin.
She also gives him quite the ultimatum: she’s not going to stick around if he sleeps with anyone else. She does realize he’s the “windmill guy,” right?
Peter immediately lets her know that he has been intimate with another contestant. “I’m not going to lie to you,” he says as Madison walks away.
If that’s not dramatic enough, the producers pulled a fast one on the last three standing contestants — Hannah Anne, Victoria F, and Madison — and forced them into a “slumber party.”
“Apparently, all of us will be living together during Fantasy Suite week,” Victoria Fuller says in the promo. “So awkward.”

Bachelor Nation’s Guide to Every Premiere in 2020 Including ‘The Bachelorette’ and ‘BIP’
The Bachelor franchise has taken up the “can’t stop, won’t stop” mantra in 2020.
By February 2020, ABC announced two spinoffs of the iconic reality dating series.
We wanted to help you keep track of it all, so we created this handy dandy Bachelor Nation guide for you.
The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart (April 13, 2020 premiere)
While so much focus has been put towards the upcoming Bachelorette season, a new Bachelor spinoff titled “Listen to Your Heart” is set to premiere beforehand on April 13, 2020. The gist of the plot finds 20 single men and women living under one roof and not only trying to find love but also a singing career. The official description teases that passionate singles will go on Bachelor-style dates that focus on their shared love of music, there will be musical challenges, and best of all, there will be live performances judged by “the biggest names in the music business,” which apparently boils down to Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers (how did they not bring Jedd Wyatt for this?!). Find out more about the spinoff here!

The Bachelorette (likely May 2020 return)
As Peter Weber’s season 24 of The Bachelor nears a close, there’s plenty of talk concerning the upcoming Bachelorette. (Plenty of folks are also freaking out because it doesn’t seem like there’s a clear frontrunner either. Our Bachelor expert weighed in on this and picked her top 5 choices so read them here.) Based on previous seasons and when they premiered, the 16th season of The Bachelorette will likely return this May 2020.
The Bachelor Summer Games (likely July 2020)
Similar to Bachelor Winter Games, the Summer Games spinoff follows singles competing in Olympic-inspired sports while searching for love. Since producers are drawing inspiration from the Olympics, it’s safe the say it’ll parallel the sporting event and air sometime between July 24 and August 9. However, since Bachelor in Paradise usually premieres in August, it seems June-July might be the best month for Summer Games. More info on the spinoff here!
Bachelor in Paradise (likely August 2020)
Following its debut in 2014, Bachelor in Paradise has remained a hit. If singles competing in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette didn’t find love the first time around, there’s always a second chance as Paradise invites them back for another shot. So, yeah, it’s entirely possible Mykenna, her facial expressions, and her empowering speeches to herself will be back sometime in August.
The Bachelor Winter Games (TBD – looking at 2022)
ABC launched Winter Games in 2018 to coincide with the 2018 Winter Olympics (the actual sporting event). In this spinoff, singles spent time in Vermont looking for love and competing in Olympic-themed sports. Since the Olympics air in the summer in 2020 and ABC is opting for Summer Games, it’s likely they’ll skip this until the 2022 Olympics.
The Funniest Tweets and Memes About Netflix’s New Show ‘Love Is Blind’
Reality shows about people finding love are a dime-a-dozen.
But aside from The Bachelor franchise, no show has taken the world by storm like Netflix’s series Love Is Blind.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen people on your social media rave or tweet about how strange the show is.
And it is, as is every reality TV dating series about people who are willing to marry someone after briefly meeting them or never seeing them in person.
But look, it doesn’t make it any less addicting.
The premise of the series is unique in that people (contestants looking for love) meet and talk with potential suitors in “pods” where they don’t see each other in person. The whole point is for them to connect with each other based on their personality without looks influencing the situation.
Following their brief meetings, they have 10 days to propose to someone, and following that proposal, they finally meet.
We follow their relationship in the real-world until it’s their wedding day on Day 40 of knowing each other. Who said you can’t hurry love clearly never dated in 2020.
As I said before, it’s addicting and the whole world cannot stop watching.
Here are the best and funniest tweets from the series:
Absolutely no one:

If I produced Love Is Blind I would lock down the pods halfway through the speed dating and turn them into escape rooms.
