Snooki and Jwoww appeared on Elvis Duran’s show on Z100 this morning and, my, they are such nice young ladies when they’re sober.

Kohl’s Ups The Designer Collab Stakes With A Little Help From Narciso Rodriguez

Designer collaborations with fast-fashion department stores make me sad.

Confession: Last night, I read the New York magazine piece, “I Just Want to Feel Everything': Hiding Out With Fiona Apple Musical Hermit,” not once, but three times.

Olivia Wilde And Stephen Colbert Have An “Act Off”

Last night, Olivia Wilde was on the “The Colbert Report” to promote her new film, “People Like Us.” While that movie looks like a total snooze and I can’t co-sign on Chris Pine’s stupid eyebrows, Olivia seems like a totally rad lady.
