(Another) Quote Of The Day: How Sparrow Got His Name

“It reminded me of the Johnny Cash song ‘A Boy Named Sue.’ My worry raising a son in Hollywood is what will he have to struggle for? I wanted to give him a name that he’s going to have to stand up for. I love it; I think it’s a beautiful name.”

– Joel Madden on why he and Nicole Richie named their son “Sparrow” to People. I have to say, I kind of love this explanation. What do you guys think? [The Hollywood Gossip] Keep reading »

Blondes Don’t (Always) Have More Fun

You know those T-shirts that say “Blondes Have More Fun”? They make me sort of wistful. For a hefty portion of my life, being blonde was a significant part of my identity, one that was hard to give up. I was born blonde and remained naturally so until junior high, when my hair started to darken with puberty. That’s when I took to the bottle — the bottle of peroxide that is. I associated being blonde with being pretty, feminine, and fun. In junior high I did not feel particularly pretty, feminine, OR fun, but I really wanted to be, so dying my hair — lighter … and lighter … and lighter — was my way of grasping for those qualities.

Porn Star Savanna Samson To Play Liz Lemon On “30 Rock”

We’ve already told you about the “30 Rock” porn spoof, but now the for-realz TV show on NBC has hired a porn star to play Liz Lemon. Wait, Tina Fey is leaving the show?! Hardly. Mega-famous adult film actress Savanna Samson will play the porn version of Liz in tonight’s episode, titled “Into the Crevasse.” According to Ace Showbiz, “the synopsis from this week’s episode does not indicate clearly any storyline concerning a Porn Liz. It says that Tracy and Jenna both have reason to be angry with Liz and are determined to make her life miserable. Liz has to find a way to regain order over her life and the show.” Hmm, guess we’ll have to watch to find out! [Ace Showbiz] Keep reading »

Stefan From “Top Chef” Needs A Date

If you watched last season’s “Top Chef,” you either loved or hated Stefan Richter, the snotty German who rubbed a lot of the other chefs the wrong way. Personally, I loved his arrogance and the fact that his food looks delish. He came close to winning in the finals (and probably should have), but his priority now is winning the heart of a special lady. He’s part of a series in Time Out New York spotlighting single foodies. So what does Stefan look for in a woman? Well, she’d better be a drinker. “If you don’t drink, forget it. Food culture is wine. I would never date a chick who doesn’t drink.” Sounds just like … me!

The Cutest Wedding Invite Maybe Ever

This is just a portion of the completely epic invitation to Jill and Matt’s wedding. The whole thing is about a foot and a half long and tells the entire saga of their relationship, from meeting at work to dating long-distance for seven years to eventually landing in the same city. It’s sort of storybook, and I love the simple presentation and the use of different fonts. But one question — did they have to use custom envelopes? View the full invite here. Keep reading »

If Holly Montag Has A Drinking Problem, Then So Do I!


On last night’s episode of “The Hills” there was a totally laughable subplot involving Speidi staging an intervention for Heidi‘s younger older sister, Holly. Holly, you see, had a couple of shots at a party, spent a few minutes talking to Brent Bolthouse about art (oh noes!), and then did the robot. These three things, apparently, are evidence of rampant alcoholism. Somebody get Ken Seeley on the phone! But seriously, far more problematic, in my opinion? Spencer‘s cowboy hat. Also, maybe Speidi’s time would have been better used counseling his sister Stephanie, who was busted for a DUI last weekend. Keep reading »

The Perfect Way To Save Face After Getting Drizzunk

You know when you drink way too much, do something stupid, and then have to face down the people you did said stupid thing in front of the next day? Evidently, peeps were having the same experience back in 9th century China. A form letter was recently found in western China, created by the Dunhuang Bureau of Etiquette, which made it easy for public officials to excuse themselves after drunken escapades. The translation is poetically amazing:

“Yesterday, having drunk too much, I was intoxicated as to pass all bounds; but none of the rude and coarse language I used was uttered in a conscious state. The next morning, after hearing others speak on the subject, I realized what had happened, whereupon I was overwhelmed with confusion and ready to sink into the earth with shame.” [Neatorama]

Human beings came up with those brilliant words over 1,020 years ago, and we still don’t have floating space condos! We don’t even have eloquently scribed form letters anymore, do we? I guess that’s because we’ve been too busy drinking ourselves silly and looking for creative ways to get out of work. So, we haven’t really had the time to invent anything good? Let’s all give this a try and see if people are as forgiving as they used to be. First round’s on me! Keep reading »
