Quickies!: Mary J. Blige Is “The One” And Farrah Fawcett Allegedly Had An Affair

Mary J. Blige teams up with Drake for her song “The One.” [OnSmash.com] — By far the most entertaining R&B/hip-hop video I’ve seen in awhile.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence say they support a second “Bad Boys” sequel but won’t make anything official until they’ve read a script. [Celebitchy] — Please, don’t do that.

Today’s Lady News: Guys Are Scared To Sleep With Lily Allen

Lily Allen told Elle UK that men are afraid to date her because their worst traits might end up in a song—like the guy whose crappy bedroom skills are immortalized in the song “Not Fair.” Ah, sucks to be him! “I wish I’d never written ‘Not Fair,'” Allen said. “You know, the thought honestly—really,…

Donatella Versace Brings Back Her Fave Old-School Label

Donatella Versace is going back to her roots (and it has nothing to do with her bleached hair). The blond fashionista and chief designer at Versace has announced plans to bring back Versus, the first collection she designed on her own for her family’s label. Versus first debuted in 1989 as the younger, chicer, and…

Fall Must-Have: Microwaveable Scarf

It’s a bit crazy how with all of our technological advances, you can still be freezing in a Gore-Tex coat. Leave it to a TV infomercial product to make up for the market’s lack of microwaveable scarves. Just place the fleece fabric in the oven for one or two minutes! Special inserts in the scarf…

Quick Pic: Dawnn Lewis Sighting

Dawnn Lewis, who played Jaleesa Vinson Taylor on “A Different World,” attended an L.A. Sparks game with an unidentified man. Dawnn isn’t often spotted, but if you’re a fan of cartoons, you probably hear her voice on a regular basis. [Los Angeles, 8/30/09]…

Potential Surprise Celebrity Guests At Fashion’s Night Out

From Anna Wintour’s imminent trip to Queens to stores staying open until 11pm (gasp), odd/fun news regarding Fashion’s Night Out is cropping up every day. But today brought with it by far the strangest new info. Apparently Rosie O’Donnell will be reading from Nora and Delia Ephron’s new book, Love, Loss and What I Wore

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of August 31st 2009

This week’s television forecast is … partly cloudy. There’s the season premiere of “Greek,” the HBO beauty-obsession doc “Youth Knows No Pain,” more drama with the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (duh), and a reprisal of “Glee,” complete with cast and crew commentary. But while there’s lots going on, we’re all kind of looking forward to…

Quick Pic: Bend It Like Ellen

While taping an interview with David Beckham, Ellen decided to add some (posh) spice to her show by surprising him with this spoof of his hot Armani spread. The episode will air later this week, but until then, I will kill time by Photoshopping myself onto half-naked Becks’ pecks. Swoon! [Burbank, CA, 8/31/09]…

Rumors Swirl That Chelsea Clinton Will Get Hitched Any Minute

All summer, folks have been speculating that Chelsea Clinton will be tying the knot with Marc Mezvinsky on Martha’s Vineyard. And the New York Post believes that it will be happening any second—a reporter saw a ginormous stage being built on the property Bill Clinton supposedly rented on Chappaquiddick island. [New York Post]…

Whitney Houston: The Greatest Album Of All?

I fell in love with Whitney Houston the first time I saw the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” video. I stuck with her forever, through “The Bodyguard” and “Just Whitney.” But circa 2000, we hit a bumpy road as her marriage with Bobby Brown got seriously rocky and the rumor mill seemed pretty convincing that…

Fashion! Disaster! Miranda Kerr Temporarily Blinded By Perfume

At a Victoria’s Secret “Heavenly Enchanted” perfume launch this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model and girlfriend of Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, was temporarily blinded when former “Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member Melissa Rycroft “accidentally” sprayed perfume in her face. Apparently Melissa felt really bad for handicapping the Australian model. [NY Post]…

Quick Pic: “O” Is For Outrageous

Karen O is a style icon to many, no doubt, but we just don’t really see this whole onesie diaper for grownups with extra socks and leggings look–which she sported whilst performing at the Reading music fest this weekend–catching on. [Reading, UK, 8/30/09]…

Steven Meisel Sure Likes His Models Dirty

What is going on with all this dirty chic nonsense? Craig McDean shot a huge spread for the September 2009 issue of W magazine highlighting the stylish side of homelessness (yeah, wtf), and now legendary photographer Steven Meisel has carried the theme over to Italian Vogue. In fact, Meisel shot not one, not two, but…

Rumer Willis Bakes Pies, Cries On Command

This morning, Rumer Willis stopped by the fourth hour of “Today” — otherwise known as the hour that Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee get drunk and talk to “stars” that aren’t famous enough to be on the show during the first three hours when more than just bloggers and unemployed people watch. Anyway, it…

Guy Skips Out On Bill, Then Steals His Date’s Car. WTF?

I was sure I had the trophy for “Worst First Date” in the bag, after I went out with a guy who, within the first five minutes of meeting, told me, “You’ve got great cans.” I felt like karma had worked its magic when, two minutes later, a pigeon pooped on him. But a woma…

Did You Wear Makeup As A Little Girl?

If you spend enough time in Sephora, you’ll see some disconcerting things, like booger-y children sticking their fingers in tubs of lip gloss, or gross grownups abusing their communal lipstick-testing privileges. But a few days ago while strolling around the makeup store, I witnessed a sight I’ve never seen: a woman (I assume she wa…

Quick Pic: Kim Kardashian, The Kween Of Darkness?

Kim Kardashian rarely looks like she could go by the name Azriel or Budgie. So I’m kind of digging her super goth look in this image from the September issue of YRB Magazine. What do you think? I might be reaching for some black lipstick of my own. [YRB Magazine]…

Crave: A.P.C. Karaoke DVD

Karaoke isn’t normally a classy affair. Dive bars, sloppy slurred words, vodka shots, and embarrassing photos are more like it. Leave it to A.P.C., one of our favorite French clothing labels, to make karaoke cute. Their new DVD offers instrumental versions of the standards: “Like a Virgin,” “Billie Jean,” and other hits by the like…

Creamy White Polish Is The Best End-Of-Summer Nail Shade

Normally, the Daytime Emmy Awards aren’t really my bag. I’m not a huge soap fan (Is she preggers with Sonny’s baby or does it belong to Jax?! OMG, is he really sleeping with Hope Brady?!) or a regular “View” watcher (except when Elisabeth goes off on one of her nutso rants), so to me, the…
