Some Racist Lady Yelled At Baby North West On A Flight

Kim Kardashian’s recent, unusally enlightened statement about becoming more conscious about racism wasn’t random: it was actually sparked by a verbal racist attack against her biracial one-year-old daughter, North West, by a first class passenger on an airplane. The passenger started yelling about Kim’s sexual relationships with Black men, including North’s dad, Kanye. Ick,…

Style Stealer: Gwen Stefani’s Slouchy Jumpsuit Is “Top Gun”-Worthy

I obviously cannot get enough to jumpsuits this summer, especially super comfy looking ones like the flight suit-esque onesie Gwen Stefani was wearing last week in Los Angeles. My feet have a hard time abiding towering stilettos like the strappy L.A.M.B  numbers Gwen has got on, so I’d probably wear it with flats instead, but…

Keira Knightley Would Like You To Know That “Love Actually” Is A Cinematic Legend

“It’s obviously the greatest movie ever made.”
I adore “Love Actually,” and I will never understand why it’s attracted such a legion of haters, but I think Keira Knightley is going a bit too far in saying it’s best movie ever. In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” interviewers mentioned film critics’ long-lasting conundrum over whether…

The image of Nigella Lawson with her then-husband’s hands around her throat is seared into my memory. If you remember, back in 2013, Lawson and businessman/art gallery owner Charles Saatchi were seated in a London restaurant, arguing, when he placed his hands around her neck as if to choke her. A photographer happened to catch…

Kristen Wiig And Bill Hader Play Messed-Up Brother And Sister In “The Skeleton Twins”

Kristen Wiig knocked it out of the park with “Bridesmaids,” proving that she could fill movie theaters by running on funny. But contrary to what a lot of ex-“SNL” stars might do, she hasn’t just made the same comedy over and over again. She played slightly more serious roles in “Friends With Kids” and “The…

The Soapbox: Why I Don’t Love Pope Francis & Am Remaining A Lapsed Catholic

Fun facts about me: My mom’s whole family is Catholic going back centuries. It’s part of our family legacy – the Veteri Ponte (shortened to Vipond) were Catholic barons in England, and depending on who was ruling and whether they were Anglicans or Protestants, we had our land granted and taken away over and over.

Life After Dating: What Relationships Can Teach Us That Being Single Can’t (And Vice Versa)

After being in a relationship for 10 years, Nick and I have gotten pretty damn good at dealing with relationship-related issues.

Why Did It Take “True Blood” This Long To Give Us Hot Sex Between Eric And Jason?

I stopped watching “True Blood” last season because the things I liked (Eric, Eric’s bare ass, Lafayette, Pam) were failing to make up for the things I didn’t like (Sookie, Bill, Sookie’s DERP face, Sam, Alcide speaking). Summer TV blows, though, so I decided to give the show another shot since it’s its last seaso…
