So, David Blaine, the “magician”/endurance artist, is up to his familiar tricks again, this time hanging upside down in New York City for 60 hours. Why? God knows. But speaking of David Blaine and his enormous God-complex, did you know he’s a total modelizer? After dating awesomely mopey singer Fiona Apple in the late ’90s, Blaine has gone on to shag seriously NOTHING but models — check out the four on his roster, above (clockwise from left: Lonneke Engel, Manon Von Gerken, Josie Maran, and Mallory Snyder). Blaine is not alone — after the jump, fellow model-lovers, Leonardo DiCaprio & Josh Hartnett and their slew of leggy paramours. Keep reading »
I love award shows, so this means something coming from me — The Emmy’s sucked. And I’m not just bitter because Jon Hamm didn’t win Best Actor in a Drama Series for playing Don Draper on “Mad Men”. The best moment, by far, of the whole night was Tina Fey’s acceptance speech, but outside of that, the only thing I could muster up any enthusiasm about was the clothes. After the jump, ten looks that stood out, to go along with our poll below. Keep reading »
My relationship status is in limbo. Eight days ago I was engaged. Now I don’t know what I am. I’m not single, but I’m certainly feeling an aloneness that I haven’t felt in four and half years — it’s traumatizing and weirdly liberating all at once. During the first few days of this new stage of my life, I found it impossible to get out of bed, my bones ached, and I had a strong desire to sleep for the next 100 years. But since then I’ve discovered how to pick myself back up and offer to you 10 tips for surviving the first week of heartbreak.
10. Pop Pills: Obtained legally and under the advisement of your doctor, of course. Let’s face it, the first few days, it’s really hard to conceive of life being worth living. I don’t care if you’re all girl power strong and resilient — heartbreak can knock the wind out of any Calamity Jane. that’s why I can vouch for the effectiveness of a nice, doctor-prescribed dose of anti-depressants and sleeping meds to take the edge off. Sleep your ass off and after a couple deep dreams, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.

What if Katie Holmes posted homemade videos about her life on YouTube and gave the world a look inside one of the more mysterious marriages in Hollywood? That’s what the chick behind Don’tCallMeJoey has in mind when she films herself impersonating the former Dawson’s Creek star and wife of Tom Cruise — her resemblance to the actress is uncanny, as are her vocal inflections, and the result is hilarious. Check out the clip of “Katie” drunk, above, as well as others on her YouTube page. Keep reading »

I love to read the wedding section in The New York Times — it truly is the sports section for women, or the sports section for people with an interest in giggling over the cheesiness of strange couples and schmaltzy writing. Take the wedding announcement for the lovely couple, Tess Taylor and Taylor Schreiner (ZOMG, what if he took HER last name?), which had numerous passages that gave me a good guffaw today:
“Her family has a ramshackle seaside cottage in Maine filled with water-stained furniture and damp books whose pages fall out as easily as the leaves of an overcooked artichoke.”
Oof, descriptive! Keep reading »
Hypothetically speaking, let’s say your relationship status suddenly went from “HAPPILY ENGAGED” to “HEARTBROKEN AND IN LIMBO”. In addition to how absolutely crappy you might feel, your ring finger probably feels a little naked too, without the presence of its previous occupant, aka your engagement ring. Even if you’re not one of these suffering souls, there’s no reason why a lady can’t buy herself her own damn ring to wear on, yes, her left ring finger. After the jump, 10 rings that say “I love you, self” better than any rock. Keep reading »
