What Do You Remember About Your Worst Breakup?

Sept. 14 marks the year anniversary of my ex deciding to take a break from our relationship. (Which means it’s also the one year anniversary of his relationship with his subordinate! Congrats, you two!) Can you believe I’ve been writing about this s**t for a year? Even though it feels like it went by in the blink of an eye, I also realize it took a while to realize how much better off I am; there were definitely times where I felt like I would never feel happy again.The thing is, I remember so many details about that day. First I had brunch with my friend Lise from high school at Thor on the Lower East Side. I had eggs Benedict; she had an omelet. Then I went to a little shop a couple blocks away (I still shop there) and I bought a dress — black tank-style, with a red, cream, and black abstract flower pattern on the skirt. I went to get my nails done — OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark was the shade. Then I went to Whole Foods and I bought stuff to make for dinner. I was going to cook some weird combination of sausage, red peppers, feta cheese, and whole wheat pasta based on a dish my friend Teri had concocted. I never actually made it that night, of course. All of these details are ingrained in my brain, but I suspect I’m not alone in remembering so much minutiae from the day of my worst breakup. What random details do you remember about the day of your worst heartbreak? Keep reading »

“Twilight” Porn Spoof Is For Hardcore Fans

Jon & Kate Plus XXX
The Gosselins get the porn spoof treatment. Ugh. Read More »

Vampires, virgins, and porn are an obvious trifecta, so it should come as no surprise that a major adult film company, Devil’s Film, is putting out a “Twilight” porn spoof. Mega popular porn star Jenna Haze stars in this hardcore send-up of the emo vampire movie, out Oct. 15 (beating “New Moon”‘s arrival in theaters!). Getting Haze to star in your porn is like getting, oh, Kate Winslet to do your little movie because it gives it instant credibility. As for the plot? No word yet, but something tells me Edward probably shares his blushing Bella with the super horny Cullen clan. [Examiner, Film Drunk] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Brad & Taylor Actually Do Love Each Other!

I basically had a hernia when I encountered Brad and Taylor (from “The Rachel Zoe Project”) while out and about at Fashion’s Night Out. The twosome were having a grand ol’ time — The Zoe was nowhere to be found — and there didn’t sem to be any of the trademark tension seen on the TV show. In fact, Taylor couldn’t wait to plant one on Brad’s cheek when I begged them for a photo. Highlight of my evening. (Style Note: Brad was wearing his signature bow tie and white patent leather wing tips. Copycatting him ASAP.) [NYC, 9/10/09] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan’s Super Boring Voicemails Leaked!


Poor Lindsay Lohan. Girlfriend just can’t catch a break. Her latest stroke of bad luck? Lindsay once posted her phone number on her “secret” Facebook profile (i.e. totes not a secret) and then somebody managed to guess her voicemail password. In fairness, it wasn’t clever — 1234. Anyhoo, so here’s a snippet of LiLo’s recent VM’s. They are rather boring, save for the one where her douche dad calls and holds the phone up to the car stereo as most douchey dads from Long Island are known to do. Listen above. Keep reading »

New Puma iPhone App Has Women Stripping Down As The DOW Crashes?

I’m confused. What does a sportswear line have to do with the stock market? Puma is advertising its new line of bodywear for women with an iPhone app that shows women putting on and taking off Puma-branded clothing … as the DOW rises and falls? Here’s how it works. The Puma Index app — which will get you 20 percent off at Puma if you show it at the store — features three lovely models dressed in varying amounts of Puma gear. When the DOW rises, they put on more clothes; when the DOW falls … and falls … they strip down to reveal the Puma bodywear they have underneath. Oh, and they jump on trampolines. “We’ve seen a lot of branded applications and a lot of them play it too straight down the middle,” Antonio Bertone, Puma’s Chief Marketing Officer, told CNBC. “We thought that if we could do this right and have models take off clothes when the market was going down, this could really work.” So, in theory, app users want the market to crash, right? Because what would ultimately happen if it just kept going lower and lower? “They’ll be in their bra and underwear having a pillow fight.” Check out the video demonstrating how the app works, after the jump … [CNBC] Keep reading »

Kathy Griffin Does Kate Gosselin

They share the same initials and are both on the D-list, so it’s no wonder Kathy Griffin was happy to impersonate Kate Gosselin for a sketch that aired on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Kathy didn’t really try to be Kate so much as she focused on tearing her a new one. Job well done! Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Drew Barrymore And Ellen Page Are Smooching Besties

“Ellen has such a beautiful body, and I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wearing anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever …. [Ellen] was in her frickin’ bra with an open jacket and hot pink shorts, skating around the rink with red lips and … she was sexy as a mother … a feral creature. It was great.”
