Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

“Look, this is an industry that perpetuates the concept of whoredom. I mean, you take some 16-year-old laying on the floor in chains like she’s been gang-banged by a bunch of Russian businessmen—that’s called an ad campaign. But when it happens in real life, we freak out. I mean, ‘Oh my God, a woman had… READ MORE »

So, it isn’t Hump Day, but this blind item just can’t wait until then. All the talk this week will be about Goat and Pillow, but as they weren’t married, this is just a breakup and division of assets, both live and inanimate.

One of the reasons I love OKCupid — not that I’m online dating anymore — is that they do all these studies on their users’ tastes and habits and release the results, which are often fascinating.

This is not exactly what I would call “good PR” for the R&B star-turned-girlfriend-beater. Say cheese! [Paris, 1/21/10] … READ MORE »

Once upon a time, before he was that creepy guy in lots of awesome movies, or leaping across the screen in the “Weapon of Choice” music video, or demanding “more cowbell” on “Saturday Night Live,” Christopher Walken was a young, gorgeous dancer. “Wow! Wowie-wow-wow-wow!” indeed. … READ MORE »

I adore Jane Lynch. If she’s involved in a movie or TV show, you know it’s not going to be that bad, because at the very least you’ll be watching a great actress with brilliant comedic timing. In the past 10 years, she’s had 114 roles, which is more than most actors could ask for… READ MORE »

Everyone calm down! Us Weekly has consulted the “experts,” and they have concluded that despite the fact that her parents dress her like a little boy, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt will probably not have serious gender identity issues. PHEW. That was a close one. … READ MORE »
