September 30: What Are We Wearing Today?

I think I speak for everyone when I say TGIFF! That's "Thank God It's F**king Friday," if you were wondering about the extra F. (If I ever put an extra F in an acronym, you can safely assume it's for f**k.) Anyway, let's see what we're wearing headed into the weekend!

Justin Theroux Gets Bolognied

Jennifer Aniston's neighbors do not seem to approve of her boyfriend, Justin Theroux. The actor, artist and writer often parks his BMW motorcycle in front of his lady's house. And apparently, when a neighbor walked their dog past the bike this morning at 8 a.m., it was covered in bologna. As in, someone had stuck…

Melissa McCarthy Plays Girl Talk Jenga With Jimmy Fallon

If I could pick anyone to play Girl Talk Jenga with, it would be Melissa McCarthy and Jimmy Fallon. I thought Girl Talk questions were spicier, though, like "Who do you want to play Seven Minutes In Heaven with?" I guess they have to keep it PG-13 on "Late Night." [Late Night With Jimmy Fallon]…

10 Great Paz De La Huerta Quotes & Photos

I gotta admit, I have a little bit of a girl crush on Hollywood Hot Mess Paz de la Huerta. I find her to be delightfully kooky. She's not afraid to wear a see-through dress while running errands or share her personal experiences with the masses, like the time the ghost of Elvis gave her…

Ron Jeremy Is Selling Rum Now

Diddy has his Circoc and Bethenny Frankel has her Skinnygirl Margaritas. And now Ron Jeremy has his own rum, Ron de Jeremy. (Yeah, we're not sure what the 'de' is about either. Maybe it just sounds classier?) The website Oh No They Didn't! saw Ron promoting the stuff at a college bar late last night.

Dating Site For Vegetarians Lets In (Gasp) Meat Eaters

I have been a vegetarian for, oh, most of my life. Yet, only once have I dated another vegetarian. I won't lie—it was very convenient. When we went out for dinner, we could always split dishes. And I appreciated not getting the verbal poking and prodding as to why I'm a vegetarian and what I'm…

Etsy Spotlight: Beautiful Bracelets That Just Happen To Tell Time

An understated timepiece in silver or gold is a classic accessory, sure, but it's also a bit predictable.

We've rounded up some of the most creative handmade watches Etsy sellers have to offer.

“Bridesmaids” Melissa McCarthy Is Designing a Plus-Size Clothing Line

Apparently winning an Emmy and being in one of the funniest movies of the year hasn't solved comedienne Melissa McCarthy's clothing woes.

9 Terrible Toilet Tales

A Washington, DC woman got caught with her pants down when the toilet she was using exploded suddenly. Apparently, a mechanical failure of epic proportions was triggered by her flush. She was rushed to the hospital with serious, not non-life threatening injuries. Well, this doesn't give me any sort of anxiety about flushing. At. All.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Snooki Has A Sammi Moment On “Jersey Shore”

In last night's episode of "Jersey Shore," Snooki learned some harsh truths about life. Namely, if you pull your dress up and show everyone your vagina in the club, your boyfriend will be angry at you. It's a lesson we all must learn sooner or later, I suppose. After the jump, the good, the bad…

Idris Elba As James Bond?

Idris Elba is full of surprises. The British actor was so convincing On "The Wire" as Stringer Bell, the Baltimore drug kingpin in business school, that the first time I heard him talk out of character, I was shocked to discover that he is very, very British. And apparently, Idris has his eye on a…

Campus Confidential: The Roommate

I suspect that it is a universal (and perverse) hobby of college upperclassmen and graduates alike to terrify rising freshman with cautionary roommate stories of horror. This past summer, it  seemed like all I had to do was mention the fact that I was about to start college and aforementioned upperclassmen/graduates would inquire about my…

Scarlett Johansson Responds To Nude Pic Scandal

"Just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy ... If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong ... It's an adjustment, but I think there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and finally you…

Behold, Adele’s “Someone Like You” Video

Adele's "Someone Like You" is the most gut-wrenching song ever. As in, I had to stop listening to it because it just brought me to a dark place. And now, following her bonkers performance of the song at the MTV VMAs, Adele has released the video for the song. It shows her walking along the…

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend’s Mother Controls His Life”

“David” and I have been together two years and we’ve been close friends longer than that. I have grown to love and care about him very much.

Split Decision Pie Pan

Newsflash: the holidays are just around the corner! That means it's ... pie baking season! But what to do if you can't decide what kind of pie to make? Apple or pumpkin? Berry or rhubarb? Mince meat or blood? (Kidding about that last one, as this is not medieval times.) Why choose? This Split Decision pie…
