Dater X: An Unexpected (And Surprisingly Pleasant) OKCupid Run-In

Dater X: An Unexpected (And Surprisingly Pleasant) OKCupid Run-In

The other night when a number I didn’t recognize flashed on my phone, I decided to answer the call and was greeted with a cheerful, “Hey there, it’s Andrew.”

“Andrew?” I replied, clearly confused about who was on the other end of the line. “I’m sorry. Andrew who?”

“From the bar on Saturday night. You gave me your number,” he said, sounding slightly defeated by my forgetfulness.

And then it hit me. I knew exactly who he was. He was my OKCupid run-in. Keep reading »

This Man Has A Kardashian Family Phobia That Makes Him Vomit

“Ugh, if I see one more magazine with Kim Kardashian on the cover, I’m going to puke!” I’m sure more than a few people have found themselves muttering those very words, but when Mike Amess says it, he means it — literally. The most ridiculous story of the day award goes to The Daily Mail, which has outdone itself with their profile of Amess and his vomit-inducing fear of the entire Kardashian family. According to the Daily Mail, Amess breaks out into a “cold sweat” whenever he sees a Kardashian — although his fear seems especially focused on Kim — and “the sight of a semi-naked Kim even makes him vomit with disgust.” REALLY?

The 24-year-old from Exeter explains, “Just hearing the sound of the Kardashians’ nasal voices or catching a glimpse of them on screen makes me feel nauseous and shaky. My hands get clammy, my breathing gets heavier and I start sweating. Sometimes, I get teary and want to retch.” Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: The Benefit Brow Treatment

Benefit Brow Bar Test Drive

Jessica and I were invited to the Benefit Boutique in Soho to meet with “Project Runway” mentor Nick Verreos, “Under The Gunn” winner Oscar Garcia-Lopez, and Benefit global beauty authority Annie Ford Danielson. Annie unveiled the new Benefit apron designed by Oscar as we all discussed the little things that can transform how a woman feels about herself. When asked, I said that I feel like I look my best with defined eyebrows. Let me tell you, the beauty experts at Benefit take eyebrows very seriously. When they offered a full service brow treatment, I jumped at the chance to have a beautician tend to these caterpillars. Keep reading »

Here’s Jon explaining the meaning of the words “guilty,” “frustrated” and “amazed” and showing what they look like for Murray.

After the jump, check out another (freakin’ adorable) video with Jon Hamm and Murray all about the letter “O.” Keep reading »

Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Nice Hair, Conan

Am I the only who didn’t love “American Hustle”? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O’Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards.
