8 Celebs Who Stayed With Their Pre-Fame Loves

It’s super cute when famous people have long and happy relationships with people they met before they made it. That’s why we were kind of OK with T.I. marrying Tameka “Tiny” Cottle last Friday in Miami. They’ve dated off and on for eight years and already have two kids together, so it’s pretty obvious they aren’t jumping into things. [People]

In celebration of marrying a normal person you’ve known for a while, we rounded up a few other celebs who’ve taken this path.

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” Finale!

Finally. Arguably one of the best seasons in the “Bachelor” franchise comes to a close tonight, with Ali picking between super sexy Roberto and sweet momma’s boy Chris. Or, you know, NOT. It’s kind of nice, for once, not knowing what’s going to happen, huh? Even better, on the “After the Final Rose” special, Frank comes back to talk to Ali face to face. I am verklempt. See ya at 8 p.m. EST! Keep reading »

Salon Columnist’s Terrible Advice For Domestic Violence Victim

Thanks to our girl Judy McGuire for calling my attention to the latest advice column from Salon’s Cary Tennis. A woman writes to Tennis that she’s “in a loving but violent marriage” in which her husband has “only” beat her up a couple of times, including the time he punched and stomped her while she was pregnant. She’s writing to Tennis because she’s upset that the domestic violence hotline she called advised her to leave her husband and she wants to know her other options. Shockingly, Tennis offers her an alternative to getting the f**k out and never looking back, but first he indulges in a little rambling prose.

“In this fictional world you are safe. So I can speak to you one soul to another. I can grant you the freedom to see yourself as the object and creation of your own limitless imagination. Then you are free to inquire: What do you want, O dish thrower? What do you want, O restrainer, kicker, puncher? What is it that you are hungry for?”

Miss New York Wins Crown With Gay Rights Platform


Meet Miss New York 2010, Claire Buffie. Like many beauty queens before her, Claire has selected a platform to run her campaign for Miss America on, only she hasn’t selected a topic that’s as palatable as, say, “breast cancer research” or “education.” No, Claire won her state competition — and is competing for Miss America — on a gay rights platform, calling for equal treatment of gays and lesbians. As Drew Grant writes over at Crushable, this is especially awesome considering most beauty queens are “pigeonholed as the Carrie Prejean anti-gay-sex/pro-secret-porn-tape type.” Claire is the first woman in the pageant’s 100-year history to be campaigning on this issue and it’s a personal one for her; her sister is a lesbian. In this interview with MSNBC, Claire says she isn’t worried that the controversial issue — and her progressive views — will harm her chances at taking the crown. She says the Miss America organization is “looking for a woman who is intelligent and compassionate, and who is working every day diligently in her community to effect positive and lasting change, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.” [Crushable] Keep reading »

Christina Hendricks’ High School Yearbook Photo

Before she was red hot Joan Holloway on “Mad Men” and known for her trademark red locks, Christina Hendricks rocked a super dark ‘do, heavily hair sprayed bangs, and a dark pout. I can’t decide if her high school look was more “chola” or “goth” … what do you think? [Best Week Ever] Keep reading »
