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.

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest spokesmodel for Emporio Armani men’s underwear and if these ads, uh, support anything, it’s that boxers are so last year. [Just Jared] … READ MORE »

Everyone’s favorite hatemonger, Pat Robertson, has been up to his usual tomfoolery lately, blaming the devastating earthquake in Haiti (which has killed more than 100,000 people) on a “pact” the nation “made to the devil” when it was emancipated from French rule. Well, our friend, comedian Sara Benincasa, is majorly fed up with Pat’s… READ MORE »

Happy Hump Day! Let’s speculate about another wild rumor, shall we? This one via BuzzFoto:If this is true, it’s just plain crazy. We hear that this ‘married couple’ is involved in more of a business arrangement than a romance. It’s not that unusual, since people have been using marriage for many things throughout history. We… READ MORE »

Despite what Us Weekly says, Jessica Simpson and aging rocker Billy Corgan seem to be hanging out still. This photo — plus one more, after the jump — were posted on Twitter and show the pop singer staring rather adoringly at her baldy beau. This makes about as much sense to me as ice in… READ MORE »

In an effort to drive unemployed people totally insane, The Daily Beast has compiled a list of how much celebrities get paid to Tweet. We already told you that Kim Kardashian makes at least $10,000 every time she tweets about a company. And let me refresh your memory: You were majorly bummed out about it. READ MORE »

I want to retire the word “fierce” as much as anyone, but sometimes there is no better word to describe Rihanna.

How’s 2010 going for you guys so far? I think it’s totally going to be the best year ever and I haven’t felt that way since … 2000? And it’s not just because everyone’s quitting their jobs, which means we have a better chance of stealing them. It’s not even because LiLo is super optimistic,… READ MORE »

It is now an entrenched cultural truth: A desirable woman in her 30s could meet someone, date for a while, enter a relationship, spend Thanksgiving at her boyfriend’s parents’ house, rent an apartment together, adopt a pet, wash his skivvies for years and still: Long-term commitment is not guaranteed.

I’ve had this pop culture fantasy for awhile. Wouldn’t it be awesome if ABC took a bunch of rejected “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants, stuck ‘em in a house together (with a hot tub, natch), turned on the cameras, and let them run wild? Oh wait. I can stop wondering. BECAUSE ABC IS ACTUALLY DOING THIS. READ MORE »

Because the New York City Health Department hates friendship, they are waging a war against salt. They’ve already gone after trans-fats and fast food, so it was only natural that they took on the last factor that determines whether something tastes good. They’re encouraging restaurants and national companies to voluntarily lower their salt content, with… READ MORE »

Some random blogger decided to equate the sites they liked/disliked/used over the last year with various types of food and drink. Apparently, The Frisky is like an appletini. I am cool with that analogy, because at least there is booze involved. Click here to see the full list. [BuzzFeed] … READ MORE »
