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.

This weekend I became a kick-ass photographer. Well, at least it looks like I did. I downloaded this super awesome app for my iPhone called CameraBag for $1.99 and it turns even the most dull iPhone photos into gallery-quality awesomeness (well, almost). Simply upload one of the images and then change the way it looks… READ MORE »

No, Jessica Simpson hasn’t (completely) lost her mind and isn’t sacrificing herself to the hair-extension gods. Rather, the ditzy blonde had friend and hairdresser Ken Paves film her as she gives herself a little ear-candling treatment. Supposedly, the process is a natural way of clearing out the nasty wax and gunk that clogs your… READ MORE »

Someone fetch the smelling salts! I knew the “Sex Rehab” doctor was hiding something under those tight T-shirts and button-downs. [Hawaii, 12/20/09] … READ MORE »

This weekend I went to see “Avatar,” James Cameron’s epic movie that has been, like, 12 years in the making. Originally I had no desire to see this film. Though I love a good sci-fi movie (I’m a proud “Star Trek” nerd), the trailer made it look hokey and I couldn’t for the life of… READ MORE »

It’s exactly a week until Christmas and if you’re lucky, this is your last week at work until the holiday. But since most of us aren’t, there is still an easy way to get away for a while. Yup, you guessed it; go see a movie! This week, most people will be clamoring to see… READ MORE »

“My first reaction was, ‘You’re killing the mother of the show! You’re killing the woman who’s suffered more violence than anybody!’ She suffered more violence than Dexter ever suffered. Dexter witnessed the death of his mother, but he didn’t suffer any physical violence. Rita was beaten and raped by an ex-husband on a regular basis,… READ MORE »

OK, Tiger Woods I totally get, but throwing in an ol’ Gloria Allred-inspired character in “Tiger’s Wood” seems a lil’ harsh. To the viewers I mean. [TMZ] … READ MORE »

Last week, I set out to interview “Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger. My plan was to go in, impress her with my wife-ability, and be home in time for wine and “Parks and Recreation.” So I’m still not sure how, an hour later, I found myself sitting on a bar stool, roped into speed dating by the… READ MORE »

In case you missed it — what is wrong with you?! — here’s a quick clip of our favorite “Jersey Shore” girl, Snooki, gettin’ her freak on in last night’s episode. … READ MORE »

There’s only a few hours left for MTV to change its mind and show Snookie getting punched on tonight’s episode — not because that would be entertaining, but because they’ve already showed it in a clip, so showing it in context would be the right thing to do. But I’m not holding my breath. Check… READ MORE »
