Will Marilyn Monroe Bring Michelle Williams Oscar Glory?

The New York Film Festival announced that the new Marilyn Monroe biopic “My Week With Marilyn,” which follows a production assistant’s week on set with the icon right after tying the knot with Arthur Miller, will get top billing at the festival this year. The festival’s head of programming changed the schedule, moving the film to the opening slot after seeing Michelle Williams‘ performance. “After seeing Marilyn Monroe so often portrayed in films as a caricature, it is a pleasure to see this complex personality and unique on-screen presence portrayed so well by such a talented actress as Michelle Williams,” he said. The coveted centerpiece slot is often a predictor of a future Oscar nomination. I wouldn’t be surprised if the lovely and talented Michelle were headed that way. She looks completely transformed in these first look photos. I can’t wait to see her take on the icon. Even though we’ve seen so many do it before her. [ONTD]

Girl Talk: I Always Ask The Big Questions

Can you see yourself with him forever? I asked myself just, oh, the other day.Yes. Yes I can. I had asked this question of myself a few months ago too, but about someone else. The answer was the same. And about six months before that. Same question, same answer. Did I mention I’m currently single?

This week, I read Dater X’s latest column with great interest. The idea that maybe we should be asking ourselves bigger questions — “Can I see myself marrying/spending my life with this person?” — about the people we date is not a foreign concept to me. I ask myself that question almost right away with nearly every single person I date; and, with a few exceptions, my subconscious usually answers “yes.” At least at first. Keep reading »

Multi-Function At Its Best

We love multi-function products, but never have we come across a hair product that does the job of 15 other products in one! And that’s exactly the reputation of Black 15in1. This hair product supposedly increases shine, hair color retention, diminishes frizz and split ends, and protects from heat styling and UV rays. Plus, Black 15in1 contains healthy ingredients like marigold flower extract, Keratin and licorice extract, a UVA/UVB protector. It’s also TSA-approved and a favorite among celebrities. So, you might not be able to travel as often as your favorite celebs, but you can give good celeb hair while you truck to work with Black 15in1.

Keep Your Hands Off Her “Food Baby”

I often get a post-meal pooch, especially after I’ve shoved down, say, a foot-long hoagie. The bloated, pregnancy looking pouch that used to be my stomach is a phenomenon commonly referred to as a “food baby.” Sometimes I call mine “the bagel” because if I squeeze it, it looks like a bagel. I know this is something women love to joke about to assuage their guilt after totally pigging out or to express their discomfort at having to unbutton their pants after an eating marathon.

But, apparently, “food babies”are a real problem for some. Keep reading »
