Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
I recently posted an ad on Craiglist selling a beautiful, twice-worn pair of Christian Louboutin pumps that my ex gave me as a gift. (I’m selling them because they pinch my feet and, frankly, are just a reminder of our failed relationship, where he was willing to shell out the big bucks, but not emotional availability.) Check out one of the responses I received, after the jump… Keep reading »
He speaks! Alleged Rihanna beater, Chris Brown, finally spoke out this weekend on allegations that he assaulted his pop star (ex?) girlfriend, releasing the following statement:
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.
Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else.
Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”
Okay, let me see if I’ve got this right. Chris is remorseful for “events that transpired,” so remorseful, in fact, that he needs God’s help, but much of what the media has reported about those events is “wrong.” It’s likely that the rumors that Rihanna gave Chris herpes or vice versa are total crap, but what about the alleged assault itself? Is that wrong too? Keep reading »

Based on the series of chick lit books by Sophie Kinsella, “Confessions Of A Shopaholic,” is the story of adorable, but bumbling “journalist,” Rebecca Bloomwood, who has a serious shopping addiction that has left her in major debt. This movie, as we’ve noted, hit theaters at a seriously awkward time — WE’RE IN A RECESSION, ZOMG! Hardly the most appropriate time for a film about a woman who has a romantic attachment to stores and the wares they sell. Maybe the producers hoped the movie would be “relatable” to the millions of Americans who are having rough times themselves. After all, Rebecca’s credit cards are declined! Rebecca is being stalked by debt collectors! Rebecca cannot afford her rent! It’s just too bad that the account cancellation notices paving Rebecca’s yellow brick road of woe lead back to Bloomingdale’s. Keep reading »
ChinaDaily.com ran a strangely generic story on the “5 Things Men Should Know About Women” (Only five? really?), which included, saying thank you when she’s doing all the housework, offer money and dependability, since the others things women look for in a partner — looks, smarts — are things you “can’t” control, and, uh, make sure she gets checked for heart disease. Um, okay. To supplement their list, I’ve come up with ten random things men actually should know about women, after the jump… Keep reading »

Attention Chris Brown‘s lawyer. You should probably get your client on the horn and tell him that when he facing allegations that he assaulted a pop music princess, he shouldn’t be responding to those allegations via his Facebook. According to the New York Post, Brown updated his private Facebook page yesterday, changing his status to “single” and putting up the message, “You’ll begin to see her true colors. Believe it!”
It’s safe to assume he’s referring to Rihanna, which is further confirmation that she was the female involved in the alleged incident and that she and Brown are definitely OFF for now. As we await updates from, you know, the police, I am going to befriend Brown on Facebook so I can keep further tabs on his online alerts. Like he can reject me, BTW, considering he needs all the friends he can get right now. Who else is there? Jordin Sparks? [NY Post] Keep reading »
“I had a stalker while filming a movie in Spain last year. She stood outside of my apartment every day for weeks – all day every day. I was so bored and lonely that I went out and had dinner with her. I just complained about everything in my life and she never came back. People get bored of me in, like, two minutes.” — Robert Pattinson
“I couldn’t eat, couldn’t drink for two weeks — great diet in a weird way…. I got it and then I’ve been single ever since. … I did it for myself. I always wanted to get one.” – Drew Barrymore on how her tongue piercing has affected her physique and her love life
