What’s my latest guilty pleasure? Well, that’d have to be Dexter, the wonderfully grotesque Showtime drama about a forensics expert who doubles as a serial killer while no one is watching.

I can’t lie to you — because it’s winter, I am going into hibernation mode. While I am camped out in my warm winter den (aka my bedroom), I have spent much time watching the show. But I have merely been catching up…I just started watching it three weeks ago.

The show has been grabbing the attention of some Hollywood related people as well. Today, Michael C. Hall, our loveable serial killer, received a Golden Globe for best actor in a tv drama. Also, John Lithgow was awarded a Golden Globe for best supporting actor in the show.

According to the Associated Press, Lithgow said, “”I’ve had the most wonderful time creeping out the entire country for the last six months.”

Indeed, the show is creepy. Some people may find themselves grossed out, but unable to look away, while others may find the show’s concept utterly disgusting and refuse to watch. I’m in the first category….and looking forward to season 5 of the serial killer everyone loves.

On Tuesday, a major 7.0 richter scale earthquake hit Haiti’s small city of Port-au-Prince. Now, just two days later, many celebrities in the entertainment industry are reaching out their hands and their wallets to help in the ongoing relief efforts.

Some of the big names lending their time to the earthquake’s victims are Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt, Anjelina Jolie, and Wyclef Jean,  just to name a few.  Pitt and Jolie contributed $1 million towards the funding for emergency medical operations in the areas most desecrated.

Others, like Oprah Winfrey and Shakira, have asked fans to start donating their money to organizations like the American Red Cross to help with earthquake relief.

According to an article in the Associated Press, ‘Viacom Inc. announced Wednesday that it was setting up a $500,000 matching gift program, with donations going to the Red Cross. The Walt Disney Co. also announced it was contributing $100,000 to the Red Cross.’

Chris Martin of Coldplay asked people to donate to a charity called Oxfam, which deals with helping countries fight poverty and injustice. Since the announcement of the earthquake, the group of 14 different organizations has been focused on helping the people of Port-au-Prince.
