Properly Portion Your Pasta

In my house, however much pasta you make, you must eat! (This, I believe, is the unofficial slogan of Italy.)

11 Lingerie Looks That Won’t Get You Laid

Just say no to lingerie that accomplishes the opposite of its intended effect. Like this Psychic Friends Network look that debuted at at Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College lingerie design competition.

Love It Or Leave It: Jennifer Lopez’s Dangerously Short Dress?

Jennifer Lopez wears some absolutely fantastic things, but the singer and American Idol judge is not what I would call the arbiter of good taste: she likes her clothes short, spangly, and as skintight as she can manage without bursting a blood vessel. I mean, can you blame her? This week, J.Lo brought boytoy Casper…

Adam Levine Calls Himself A “Promiscuous Bimbo”

“I’ve always felt a little misrepresented in the world. I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe I was kind of a bimbo … I was the dude that was naked all the time with girls, and that’s fine, no problem with…

Evening Quickies: Kathie Lee Gifford Accidentally Asks Martin Short About His Dead Wife On-Air

Kathie Lee Gifford accidentally asked Martin Short about his wife, who has been dead since 2010, on-air.

Air Force Mamas Photographed Breastfeeding In Uniform Called A “Disgrace”

Apparently some people are pissed off about a photograph of two Air Force servicewomen, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, breastfeeding their children in uniform, calling it a “disgrace.” What, soldiers aren’t supposed to have boobs (or babies)?

Andy Samberg Squeezes His Sizable Bulge Into A Tiny Pair Of Shorts

Well, hello there, Andy Samberg. I had no idea the “Saturday Night Live” star and member of The Lonely Island — who was photographed filming “Grown Ups 2″ — was so groin-heavy. “Dick in a Box”? More like “Dick in a Shipping Container.” [Photo: FameFlynet]

Style Stealer: Ali Larter’s Floral Frock
