Do you know what day it is? Yes, it’s October 3rd, Lindsey, but most importantly, it’s the 10th anniversary of the night we were introduced to the white-picketed world of Wisteria Lane—and the ladies who live there—on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. From that infamous “Pilot” episode (which garnered 21.6 million viewers, the best showing for ABC in a decade at that time), all of us were instantly hooked on the bizarrely brilliant characters and drawn into their world of lies, scandal, death, desperation and, ahem, the seduction of one smokin’-hot gardener.

Sinead, is that really you? Yesterday, Irish songbird Sinead O’Connor had the Internet buzzing when she released her new album cover showing the singer trading in her Irish hipster look for slick rock-and-roll dominatrix getup — and she’s never looked better. Gone is Sinead’s trademark buzzcut; in its place is a black skin tight leather dress topped with a sexy cropped wig. The “Nothing Compares 2U” chanteuse’s 10th studio album, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss is due for release on August 12th.
Besides branding a fierce new look, O’Connor is also very passionate about the album’s title. On her official website she posted: “Originally, I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase “I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss” and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss, and I think Sheryl’s campaign is a terribly important one. ”

After what seemed like a lifetime of anticipation, AHS creator Ryan Murphy finally gave us a glimpse at Season 4, when he took to Twitter to reveal that the next iteration of the anthology series will be subtitled “Freak Show.” While very little is known about the upcoming season, EW.com just revealed a few other morsels that are quite delicious.
