Style Stealer: Olivia Munn’s Airport Chic

Olivia Munn was spotted leaving JFK airport with her man piece Joel Kinnaman yesterday, presumably on their way to someplace where totally beautiful people hang out. Munn's red carpet style is usually totally sub par, if you ask me, but she seems to have casual down. We love the bright red-yellow purse/sweater combo, and…

“Downton Abbey” Left The Manor For The Olympics

The cast of "Downton Abbey" -- both upstairs and downstairs -- attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where's the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn't dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And…

We’re Off To See Gary Busey

So this is what happens when you watch "Wizard of OZ" with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon too many times. The characters all eventually morph into Gary Busey. I need to click my ruby slippers together and get out of this fan art nightmare.  [Buzzfeed]…

Girl Talk: Redefining Vulnerability

“He smokes, which I find gross, but he’s planning to quit soon,” I complained to my roommate about Jason, the guy I’d been dating for about a month. “And did I tell you he doesn’t eat dinner? As in, he has no desire to eat past lunchtime. Weird, right? And he owns seersucker shorts –…

Ryan Lochte Gets All “Jeah” In Your Face

Gold medal Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is kind of the Brody Jenner of the sport. Which is to say, he's a total bro, right down to his hella ugly American flag grill, and ubiquitous use of the made up word, "Jeah." In this helpful video, Lochte explains all the many uses of "Jeah," and cement…

Woman Goes Topless In New York City In The Name Of Freedom

When most people see Moira Johnston walking through the streets of New York, they probably aren't thinking "freedom fighter," they're thinking, "That woman's topless." But to Johnston, politics and breasts go hand in hand -- although, truth be told, one is more preferable to actually hold. The 29-year-old topless dancer from Philadelphia may be baring…

Truly “Miss Advised”: Julia Allison Gives A Second Date Blow Job, Gets Dumped

Before I get into parsing the insanity of "Miss Advised"'s penultimate episode, a note about Emily Morse. Last night, as I was livetweeting all the action -- I am so dedicated, y'all -- I noted that I use Emily's scenes as time to refill my drink (multiple are necessary to get through this shitshow) or…

Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin Described As A “Mean Girl”

Today, The Washington Post ran a column praising 17-year-old Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin as a tenacious athlete. In fact, you could describe columinist Sally Jenkins' piece as gushing. So it's unfortunate in an otherwise awe-filled piece that Jenkins' made a poor choice of words (emphasis mine): This was her first Olympic gold medal attempt…

Rosie Huntington-Whitely Looks Like An Alien On The Cover Of Elle

Model/actress/whatever Rosie Huntington-Whitely is very pretty. But is she so pretty that she actually doesn't possess pores? Doubtful. Yet that's exactly what this Elle UK cover might have you believe. Huntington-Whitely is airbrushed within an inch of her life, giving the impression that her face is actually a strange spackled-on mask or a CGI Jame…

Dating Don’ts: Quit Trying So Hard (As Demonstrated By Two Contestants On Last Night’s Episode Of “Bachelor Pad”)

While watching last night's episode of "Bachelor Pad," I had two distinct thoughts: 1) Michael Stagliano is the only normal person on this show and 2) the worst thing you can do on a date is try too hard. I have been so, so guilty of this. I'm sure all of us have. But thi…

Put Your Pup’s Fears To Rest With The Thundershirt!

My pup Lucca presents herself as fearless, telling dogs twice her size who's boss, but the one thing that sends her cowering in fear is thunder and lightening. A summer storm -- and we've had a few of them so far -- sends her into a panic, seeking shelter under the bed, in my bathtub,…
