Quick Vid: Christina Aguilera Cries Happy Tears

Well jeez, melt my cold, dead heart, why don’t you Xtina? The singer opened up to E! News about her relationship with her husband, Jordan Bratman, and describes how growing up without a positive male role model makes her appreciate him even more as a partner and father. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Taking Woodstock,” “The September Issue,” “My One And Only,” “Fifty Dead Men Walking”

Yes, summer is ending and it’s time to retire the flip-flops. Tragedy. Thankfully, there are several promising movies coming out this week, and they’re a great way to distract yourself from the fact that beach visits and hungover work days will quickly become a ghost of your past. Back to the grind, to the wool sweaters, to raking leaves, and making soup. But forget all about those things because this week “Taking Woodstock” will revoke the summer of love; “The September Issue” will remind you that fall means shopping; “My One and Only” will make you thankful you’re not George Hamilton’s mom, and “Fifty Dead Men Walking” will make you happy the ’80s are over. Now go choose your own adventure! Keep reading »

You’re OUT: Five Reasons Why “Project Runway” Is Over

Daniel Vosovic, “Project Runway” season 2 runner-up and “All-Stars” winner, tells NYMag.com’s “The Cut” that being on “PR” again was a “mind f**k.” He goes on to explain, “It felt like a weird summer camp. Four years later everything was the same — same stage, same crappy lights, Heidi’s pregnant again. It’s like I had never left.” That may be true of the “All-Stars” reunion (which aired last week) — which brought together some of the show’s biggest personalities and best designers — but the new season of “PR” is rapidly proving it’s not the same fabulous, edgy, and fashion-forward show now that it lives on Lifetime.

I’m just gonna say it. “Project Runway” — you’re OUT. Here are five reasons why. Keep reading »

Kidnapping Victim Found Alive 18 Years Later

Let’s start Friday off on a happy/incredibly disturbing note, shall we? In 1991, Jaycee Dugard, 11, was kidnapped and presumed dead. This week, a woman walked into a police station in the Bay Area and told officers that she was Dugard, now 29. She had been kidnapped and kept a prisoner in the backyard of Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender and religious fanatic, and his wife, Nancy. Garrido had raped her repeatedly over the years, fathering two children, now 11 and 15. Dugard and the girls were kept in tents and sheds in the Garridos’ backyard and police suspect that this week might have been the first time she or her children had left the compound. The three have since been reunited with Dugard’s family and the Garridos will be arraigned today. [LA Times] Keep reading »

L’Chaim: Grover And Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In “Shalom Sesame”

Oy gevalt! How psyched are we that Jake Gyllenhaal, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, and Debra Messing are helping Grover out in a 12-part series called “Shalom Sesame,” a Jewish version of “Sesame Street.” The show will teach bubbelehs about Jewish culture, complete with a visit to Israel to check out important landmarks. The show has been done before in 1986 and 1990, with stars like Joan Rivers, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary Tyler Moore. The premiere of the new version will be circa Hanukkah 2010. I’ll totally be breaking out the Manischewitz, matzo, and macaroons for that one! Now let’s see if I can convert, marry a nice Jewish boy, and produce some half-Jewish babies in time for the launch!

Chris Brown Goes Clubbing After His Sentencing

Not that he’s doing anything right, but a few hours after Chris Brown was sentenced for assaulting Rihanna, he celebrated by heading to a Los Angeles club where he jumped up on a booth and did an impromptu performance of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” One club goer said, “He not only sang, but danced his ass off. He didn’t seem to care at all that everyone was watching him. He was in a totally good mood, just hanging out with his buddies.” [Contact Music]

Well, of course he was in a good mood—he got out of this mess with no jail time, just 1,400 hours of community service and domestic violence classes. We think it was kinda tacky to make a scene after getting off easy for committing a heinous crime, but plenty of stars have found other ways to act inappropriately after escaping the clutches of the law.

Working Girls Work The Runway

When hookers in Brazil want to protest discrimination, they take to the seams. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, prostitutes in Rio de Janeiro walked the runway as models for Gabriela Leite’s Daspu label (“daspu” comes from the slang term “das putas” or “the whores”). The former prostitute started the label four years ago “as a way for prostitutes to gain regular income while also fighting preconceptions of people affected with AIDS.”

“Daspu gets rid of prejudice,” says Leite. “It opens paths for the citizen whore.” Keep reading »

Crave: Gap Striped Lounge Leggings

We love shopping for “lounge clothes” — you know, the duds you throw on the second you walk in your pad after a long day at work. Lounge clothes are different than pajamas because, in theory, you could go outside in them and not look like you just busted out of a mental institution. These Gap leggings technically can be paired under dresses or long tunics, but because of the purple stripes (which are likely to clash with, um, a lot), we think they’re a little more appropriate for lounging comfortably (they’re mega cozy) on your couch while watching a “Real Housewives” marathon. But if you happen to trot outside to grab a beverage, no one will glance twice. [$11.99, Gap] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Now This Is How You Punish A Cheater!

Why didn’t we think of this? Apparently, this guy’s wife busted him sending nudie photos to someone else via text message. As punishment, she made him stand on a heavily trafficked corner in their hometown while wearing this sign. Brilliant. [Self Preservation] Keep reading »
