"Clueless" became a pop culture phenomenon when the film hit theaters 20 years ago, making phrases like "whatever" and "as if" part of the mainstream vernacular. 

Mike Wilber takes a look back at the movie that set fashion and slang trends for the young 90's generation. 

"We’re on the set of Clueless right now" 

Hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since the release of clueless! 

The movie made Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash and Brittany Murphy the envy of every girl, playing high school students in Beverly Hills with fashions to match! 

Mona May, costume designer, "All these are for Cher our main character, she wears only designers from Paris" 

Alicia Silverstone, actress, "I'm not into fashion at all, but for Cher it's the important thing in the world for her"  and then, of course, there were the unforgettable lines that became part of every teen's vernacular, "I don't think so," "whatever," "that was way harsh Tai," "you're a virgin who can't drive,"  sadly, Brittany passed away in 2009, but her co-stars have gone on to have successful careers. 

Alicia Silverstone, "Cher is extremely unique" 

These days Alicia has become a kind of lifestyle guru with her website "the kind life" and has written two books.  (nats: clip)

As for Paul Rudd, he's done well in the acting game, starring in "Antman" and we got him to talk "Clueless" as he got a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. 

Paul Rudd, "Would I want to do it again? I think I might be a little too old for the part now."

Caitlyn Jenner Lane? Towns Could Consider Renaming Streets Honoring Bruce Jenner http://kobi5.com/news/national-world-news/item/caitlyn-jenner-lane-towns-could-consider-renaming-streets-honoring-bruce-jenner.html http://kobi5.com/news/national-world-news/item/caitlyn-jenner-lane-towns-could-consider-renaming-streets-honoring-bruce-jenner.html Caitlyn Jenner Lane? Towns Could Consider Renaming Streets Honoring Bruce Jenner
(NBC News) Caitlyn Jenner's debut earlier this month created a question for some cities and towns: What should happen to streets named for Bruce Jenner?

Three cities — two in Texas, one in Tennessee — have streets honoring the famed Olympian.

Officials in Olympic Heights, a small community in Austin, said in a Facebook post that if residents of the community want to change Bruce Jane Lane to Caitlyn Jenner Lane "the board has no issue." The board said that the switch was not being actively pursued, though.

And at least a few residents don't like the idea.

"Thank you for not pursuing it. Bruce was the Olympian, not Caitlyn. What a headache it would be if we all had to change our addresses," Alicia Bribiesca Lemon said in a comment on the Facebook post.

Ouch! Don't take the Kylie Jenner challenge http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/ouch-don-t-take-the-kylie-jenner-challenge.html http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/ouch-don-t-take-the-kylie-jenner-challenge.html Ouch! Don't take the Kylie Jenner challenge

(KGW) It's a disturbing new trend. And hopefully it'll stop as soon as it started.

On Sunday night, #kyliejennerchallenge popped up on Twitter.

What's happening is that kids are trying to plump their lips up to look like Kylie Jenner's.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians lil sis has said that her pouty look is natural.

And one "natural" way to get the look is to put your lips into a small glass and suck in as hard as you can. It causes the lips to briefly swell, just as they might with a cosmetic injection.

The problem is that it also can cause serious pain, bruising and scarring around the mouth, as you can see from photos and videos popping up online.

Survey suggests people who love grilled cheese sandwiches have more sex http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/survey-suggests-people-who-live-grilled-cheese-sandwiches-have-more-sex.html http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/survey-suggests-people-who-live-grilled-cheese-sandwiches-have-more-sex.html Survey suggests people who love grilled cheese sandwiches have more sex

Do grilled cheese sandwiches lead to a better sex life?  Probably not.  

But dating and social-networking site 'Skout' asked 4,600 users all kinds of questions about the sandwich, to figure out what it might say about them.  

One of their findings: people who love grilled cheese sandwiches have more sex than people who aren't so fond of the greasy grub.  

They found 32 percent of grilled cheese lovers have sex at least six times a month.  

That's compared to 27 percent of those who don't like grilled cheese. The survey also found grilled cheese fans are more charitable, more adventurous, and more likely to travel.

Fan scratched Adam Levine on stage http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/maroon-five-fan-steals-the-show-at-concert.html http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/maroon-five-fan-steals-the-show-at-concert.html Fan scratched Adam Levine on stage

Taking a look at what's trending on Google right now, a fan stole the show at a Maroon 5 concert and took a piece of Adam Levine with her.

Not all Maroon 5 fans have moves like Mick Jagger, this week at a concert in California a fan got a little too friendly, running on stage and bombarding Adam Levine. 

The voice coach took it in stride and spoke to the crowd after the song.  The experience made it harder to breathe for the front man and maybe even harder to hear. 

Levine says the girl cut him on the ear with her fingernail.

"The Voice" heats up http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/the-voice-heats-up.html http://kobi5.com/news/entertainment/item/the-voice-heats-up.html

(NBC)  "The Voice" moves into its playoff round tonight as 20 artists begin vying for America's vote.

At age 15, Sawyer Fredericks is the youngest contestant among the Top 20. He's on a team with three other teenagers and a 22-year-old coached by Pharrell Williams, who doesn't look for typical artists.

"He's really allowing me to be myself on the team, just keep my originality," Fredericks says.

The "senior" singers onstage are Joshua Davis and Tonya Boyd-Cannon.  They round-out Team Adam's tribe of soul-singers and balladeers.

Team Christina is loaded with powerhouse divas and one "divo" with a sky-scraping falsetto. Former opera singer India Carney has had lots of training, but nothing like "The Voice."

"I'm learning every day. I don't think they understand, but they're teaching me a whole lot," she says.

Four-time champion coach Blake Shelton thinks he's got a few aces up his sleeve with a team that includes one country crooner and two women who have felt the sting of failure.

"I know how to accept disappointment," says Sara Potenza.  "I don't know how to accept success, but I'm trying!"

They'll all give it their best shot before a live audience tonight.
