The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh: The LACMA Art + Film Gala

I think the LACMA Art + Film Gala is the West Coast's version of the CFDA Awards -- everybody looks totally flawless, and they're all wearing fashions that are sort of high concept and adventurous. It probably also helps that this year's LACMA Gala was sponsored by Gucci, and practically everyone wore Gucci to the…

The 9 Most Unintentionally Scary Movies

It's happened to all of us: you go to a movie expecting a thoughtful drama or lighthearted romp.  No one warned you — it was all a sick trick to expose you to a vision as bloodcurdling as any "Saw" sequel. Two hours later, you stumble into the lobby, unsure whether it's tears or your last…

Gwen Stefani Pulls A Sue Ellen Mischke

As hard as I tried to write something original about this outfit Gwen Stefani wore to the Vogue CFDA Fashion Fund show, I finally realized that like so many situations in life, it's best summed up by a "Seinfeld" quote: "So we got an attractive woman, wearing a bra, no top, walkin' around in broad…

Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: Meeting Mama Clark, Closing In On Dexter & Wearing Brody Down

I feel sort of sorry for "Dexter" and "Revenge." Compared to the mind-blowing awesomeness that is "Homeland," these two otherwise fantastic shows are kinda limping behind. Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying both of them, but they're basically just a tasty appetizer before an incredibly exciting, satiating meal that is "Homeland." And, frankly, that…

We Don’t Want To Break Up, We’re Just Ovulating

A new study done at UCLA explored women's changes in behavior toward their mates during ovulation. As you may guess, it was erratic, because lots of bizarre things happen to us when we're ovulating. Like, we're better at spotting snakes. "A woman evaluates her relationship differently at different times in her cycle, and her evaluatio…

Connie Britton Pens Op-Ed On Romney’s Use Of “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts”

"Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show -- the women we are in real life -- are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions.

Joss Whedon Endorses Mitt Romney … For The Zombie Apocalypse

Joss Whedon is probably best known for creating "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Angel" and "The Avengers." He's also an ardent supporter of the zombie apocalypse, whether it be the fast moving zombies of "28 Days Later" or the slow, stubborn zombies of "Night Of The Living Dead." Either way, Joss wants more zombies. And that'…

Girl Talk: My Awkward Sober Sex Life

This is how it begins. He asks me to stand before him in my lace underwear, high heels, hose and bra. He sits in a chair and watches closely as I disrobe, making approving noises, even winking to put me at ease. “Turn around please,” he says and then, “Yes, right there. Stop there.” Eve…

I've put together this handy Hurricane playlist, filled with songs about, duh, hurricanes and rain.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Is Dita Von Teese Correct That Men Like Watching Women “Get Ready”?

Last week, burlesque star Dita Von Teese had me scratching my head at something she said in an interview with Into The Gloss. Dita, who is publishing an offbeat beauty guide soon, was giving tips on how to "sexify" getting ready so it turns on your man. She explained: "In my book, I’ll have all…

“Long Island Medium” Channels Legendary Skater Harold Hunter

Well, this is weird: "Long Island Medium" Theresa Caputo wandered into a New York City skate shop on last night's episode and channeled skateboarding legend -- and "Kids" star -- Harold Hunter. Hunter, a controversial figure in the downtown scene (who died in 2006), supposedly wanted to let the dudes in Wampum Skate Shop know…

The Soapbox: On Disney’s First Latina Princess

"Disney is releasing a Latina princess soon, mija," I declared to my daughter as we drove away from her school and on our way to pick up her dad. "Good!" she said firmly. But of course, I rarely let that be the end of any conversation. "Why good?" I probed. What followed was a discussio…

This Week In Insanely Pricey Celeb Purchases…

In case you had forgotten that celebrities are not just like you, we have a bunch of recent evidence for you: Madonna’s daughter Lourdes turned 16 recently, and as we all know, 16 is a big deal.
