The bad news: my beloved brown Tara Jarmon riding boots, which I bought in Paris four years ago and wore into the ground, have been retired. The good news: this means I get to hunt for new boots to replace them! Click onward to see the brown boots in varying heights, heel heights, and styles that I found, some as low as $30 friggin’ bucks. I ain’t lying.
If you grew up watching “Sesame Street” — uh, who didn’t? — I’ve got the documentary for you. “Being Elmo” is about Kevin Clash, the man behind Elmo, arguably one of the most popular “Sesame Street” Muppets of all time. Clash aspired to work for Jim Henson since he was a kid, even making his own puppets in high school. This is the story of how he made that dream come true. I was never the biggest Elmo fan (Grover was my man!) but it is undeniable how popular the character is with children; he embodies, as Kevin says, “pure love.” “Being Elmo” hits theaters on Oct. 21.

My first thought when I saw this adorable video of a little boy watching “The Empire Strikes Back” and learning that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s dad: Is this an old home movie of John DeVore as a kid? Alas, it is not, but it might as well be. Looks kind of like him and I’m pretty sure John felt just as shocked. [i09]
Teen bride Courtney Stodden wants to make one thing clear; her body is all natural, baby. The 17-year-old — who recently debuted her first song, “We Are America” — staged a photoshoot on the beach with geriatric husband Doug Hutchison this weekend. Clad in only a white bikini, Stodden frolicked in the waves, got a piggyback ride from Doug, and did some canoodling in the sand. So romantic! So sensual! Such a s**tshow! [Celebuzz]
Jason Biggs, we hardly knew ya. The “American Pie” actor (seriously, is he known for anything else?) is having his dirty laundry aired by none other than his own lovely wife, Jenny Mollen. Mollen wrote an essay for the Playboy owned website, The Smoking Jacket, revealing how she and Biggs hired a prostitute for his birthday.
So my husband and I got a whore. I’m hoping, unless you’re some sick depraved dissolute of a person, this isn’t the kind of thing you hear everyday. If it is, f**k you, I thought it was pretty gangster. So, ok, where do I begin? I wanted to do something special for his birthday, isn’t that how all these stories start?

There have been some good “Saturday Night Live” hosts (Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm) and some bad (January Jones). There have been far too many mediocre hosts to count. But count Melissa McCarthy among the rare celebrity hosts (like Justin Timberlake) that can actually hold her own among, and at times outshine, the show’s cast. As the host of SNL’s second show of the season, McCarthy nailed each and every sketch, from her opening monologue (above) which saw her “dancing” alongside “Bridesmaids” co-stars Kristin Wiig, to a skit in which she played a desperate-to-please taste tester at a focus group. Check out some of our favorite moments in the video clips above and then cross your fingers that she ends up hosting again, sooner rather than later!
