Candace Cameron Sorta Opens Up About Bulimia

“It’s a very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over. … It wasn’t about me trying to lose weight. It was all about emotions.”

When Should A Child Give Up The Pacifier?

Salma Hayek-Pinault and her adorable daughter, Valentina, were photographed taking a stroll on a beach in St. Barts. But what I found interesting is that 3-year-old Valentina still sucks on a pacifier. Now, I have never read a parenting book and don’t have any children, but I thought that most parents would try to wea…

The Rundown On Reese’s Engagement Ring

We are officially jealous of Reese Witherspoon. We’re getting information on the ring Jim Toth offered her and damn, is it awesome. The timeless design by William Goldberg features a square-cut 4-karat diamond and pave diamond band. While the diamond may look standard, it’s anything but. Apparently the cut was inspired by a diamond once…

Girl Talk: I Had A Breast Reduction

I was never one of those little girls who begged God to give her boobs. If anything, I desperately wanted them to stop growing. By the time I hit middle school, I was strapping them down into a sports bra that made it look I had a uni-boob around my chest like a tire. I…

Amber Portwood Allegedly Makes $280K A Year

In November, we reported that the ladies of “Teen Mom” make $60K to $65K per season, which comes out to about $5,000 per episode. We argued that this was chump change in comparison to the alleged $80K Lauren Conrad made per episode in her final days on “The Hills.” But apparently, our numbers may have…

Kanye’s Leaked “Monster” Video: Sexy Dead Girls, Decapitated Heads, And Other Violence Against Women

Kanye West’s unfinished video for “Monster” has leaked online and it’s a disgusting display of gratuitously sexy dead women. In the opening shot, dead women in lingerie hang from nooses made of chains; the camera lingers on one’s stiletto heels. In a later scene, Kanye lies in bed with two lifeless models, moving…

Lesson Learned: Probably Not A Good Idea To Call 911 After A Bad Mani

OK, we get the disappointment and annoyance when you get a crappy manicure. Most of the time, however, we just shut up, begrudgingly hand over the 15 bucks and live with it. That’s not the case with one Florida woman who decided to call 911 after something (it’s not quite clear what) went wrong during…

What Makes A Woman Girlfriend Material, According To Men

When it comes to getting a man to settle down with you, we’ve all heard advice like “hold out on sex” or “be unavailable.” But if that worked, nuns, Olympic athletes, and frigid work-a-holics would be like dude catnip. So, clearly, we need to go straight to the source to find out what makes a…

Michelle Williams Will Watch “Brokeback Mountain” With Her Daughter

“I was just an actor who happened to be lucky enough to be in the right place, and it was the place where I met Matilda’s father, and that is a lot. It was a lot. And it will be a lot for Matilda too, when she gets around to watching it. I will watch…

Fashion Flashback: Window Shopping

I love everything about this 1968 photo, although the woman’s stern expression has me a little puzzled. Surely she had a good excuse (gender oppression and the Vietnam War come to mind), but if it had been me standing in front of that gorgeous skirt in the shop window, I guarantee you I would have…
