After months of campaigning and more than one million presidential ads, with 274 electoral votes to Republican running mate, Mitt Romney's 203, and thanks to the swing state of Ohio, President Obama has been re-elected to a second four-year term.
President Obama promised his thrilled supporters "that for the United States of America the best is yet to come."Obama appeared before thousands of cheering Democrats to the beat of Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed and Delivered" after securing his strong electoral lead.
He also congratulated his opponent Mitt Romney and said, "In the weeks ahead I am looking forward to sitting down with Gov. Romney to discuss how we can move this country forward."
If you hit the hay before the prez delivered his acceptance speech, you can watch it here:
Spoiler alert! 'Mad Men' is going tropical for Season 6 when Don Draper and his wife Megan, aka Jon Hamm and Jessica Pare take Hawaii. Brady Bunch did it. Full House did it. And, yes, that’s right, “Mad Men” is participating in the long TV tradition of a Hawaiian vacation.
Based on a series of pictures posted on Daily Mail, the characters of Don and Megan Draper look to be enjoying their time in The Aloha State, drinking tropical drinks and reading “The Inferno” on the beach. They are both wearing brightly-printed, retro swimsuits in the photos.
Though an exact date's yet to be announced, we can’t wait for the sunny, ocean and rainbow filled season premiere.
First came controversial couple, Ben Flajnik and model, Courtney Robertson. It wasn't much surprise to fans since there was a lot of speculation while their season of Bachelor was filming. Though, we still had hope and Robertson admits, they did too, that their love was real but just didn't work. And, to Flanjik's surprise, photos of Robertson canoodling with Emily Maynard's season cast-off, Arie Luyendyk appeared on the net just days later.
Regardless, their courtship did suprisingly last longer than single mom, Emily Maynard's and entrepreneur, Jef Holm. There's no doubt that America was rooting for these two but alas rumors of the Bachelor sweetheart's supposed infedality no doubt put a spoil to their seemingly authentic love.

Patti Smith, the Bohemian Queen, is adapting her memoir, Just Kids for the big screen. The book was released two-years ago and there’s been nothing but buzz about the roles of Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe (Smith’s partner) since the project was first announced.
Apparently, Ms. Smith has a pair of leads in mind and her choices might just surprise you – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. But, don’t judge, her reasoning is pretty spot on. Stewart is "not conventionally beautiful," and Pattinson is "a bit shy, and a bit stoic."
So, who else is in the running? She mentions Mia Wasikowska, and even suggests Saoirse Ronan. As for Mapplethorpe, we think James Franco could be a sweet match.

Two-months after news broke that Kristen Stewart cheated on her hearthrob boyfriend of three-years Robert Pattinson, the couple are reportedly back together. Just like Edward and Bella, the couple might just have what it takes to have eternal love just like their on-screen characters.
When Pattinson finally started accepting Stewarts calls, he started to change his tune, according to Us weekly reports. "He started thinking nobody else would understand his life," his rational voice told him not to toss a three-year relationship for one infidelity." "They have a very deep connection," explained a source.
Anyone who’s read the sexy and controversial Fifty Shades series has their own theory on who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. At first, I was certain that Josh Duhamel and Anne Hathaway were ideal but then I read about another potential pairing that took my big screen cake, Ryan Gosling and the doughy wide eyed English actress, Felicity Jones of Like Crazy. In my book (literally), these two would make sequel after sequel magic. Buh-bye K-Stew.
According to reports, Gosling is a lead candidate to take on the dominant, S&M sex driven character. Though author E.L. James insists, no ones been chosen yet. James also says she may or may not have someone in mind for the steamy role, but declines to name names as she insists it’s far too early in the process.

Are they or aren’t they? On and off-again couple, 2011’s Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper and the
modelesque, Zoe Saldana were spotted leaving the ArcLight Dome Theater in Hollywood on Saturday night. Saldana in a rare for her, casual ensemble with Cooper’s arm wrapped tightly around the actress.
Cooper, 37, and Saldana, 33, were first spotted together back in January after co-starring with one another in The Words.
Britney Spears (whose music video for "Oops! … I Did It Again" took place on Mars) recently tweeted at NASA's rover "Curiosity," which landed on the red planet August 5th.

MarsCuriosity: "@britneyspears Hey Brit Brit. Mars is still looking good," adding, "Maybe someday an astronaut will bring me a gift, too. Drill bits crossed ;)"
There might be a potential new couple alert in the making. Singers Katy Perry and John Mayer, were recently spotted leaving the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles after a dinner date.
The two crooners are said to be taking it slow, according to sources, and have been chatting on the phone and going out on dates.
Both have had rough relationships in the past with high profile partners. Perry was recently divorced husband Russell Brand and Mayer has dated Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and Taylor Swift, all whom have had their relationships targeted in the tabloids due to Mayer's candid way of speaking about his lady loves.
We just hope these two don't do anything stupid. The last thing Hollywood needs is another relationship disaster!
