“The Office”‘s “Seasons Of Love” Tribute To Michael Scott


I haven’t been a loyal watcher of “The Office” in a few seasons, but that didn’t stop me from totally tearing up while watching this tribute to Michael Scott from last night’s episode. My high school choir (I was not a member) sang “Seasons of Love” from “Rent” at my high school graduation and, damn, does that tune tug at the heartstrings (even when the lyrics are ridiculously altered). Next week is Steve Carell’s last episode — will you be watching? Keep reading »

Before She Was An Oscar-Winning Actress…

Penelope Cruz was a model with a pixie cut in Sassy magazine. Who knew? This pic, from a 1994 issue of the iconic teen magazine, also features platform Converse. Remember those? [via F**k Yeah Awesome '90s Stuff!] Keep reading »

Please, No: “Real Housewives” Husband, Simon Van Kempen, Sings “I Am Real”


Is this really happening again? Is another “Real Housewives” star trying to turn their 15 minutes of reality TV fame into a music career? Actually, no. A “Real Housewives”‘ star’s husband is following in the footsteps of Countess LuAnn, Kim Zolciak, and Danielle Staub. Alex McCord‘s hubby, Simon Van Kempen — both from “The Real Housewives of NYC” — has released his first song, “I Am Real.” It is just as Eurotrash as you’d expect from the banana hammock-wearing Aussie. Simon told PopEater that his style is similar to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and while I appreciate the reference — love Jarvis — I politely disagree. (Though I do think it establishes him as more of a gay icon than Sonja.) But what do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »

The Good, The Meh & The Amazing At Coach’s Benefit For The Children’s Defense Fund

Lordy, were the Hollywood clubs empty last night? It seems like every single famous female celeb in Tinseltown was at Coach’s “Evening of Cocktails and Shopping” to Benefit the Children’s Defense Fund. Except Lindsay Lohan, so I suppose the clubs did alright for themselves after all. Anyhoo, as this event was for a good cause, I found myself unable to critique anyone’s look as “bad,” per se. So, keep clicking to find out who looked good, meh, and amaaaazing

Sunny With A Chance Of Stripes

The ’70s are back in a big way this spring and summer and this cute little sundress from Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line for J.C. Penney has all the elements. The multi-colored chevron stripes on top give the illusion of a narrow(er) waist, while the vertical stripes on the floaty skirt elongate. We love the vintage vibe of the braided straps and brown belt, plus, we’ve never been able to resist a frock with pockets. Um, and it’s on sale? Consider us sold.

13 Hot Hollywood Actors Who Got Beefy For Roles

Ladies, allow me to introduce you to Chris Hemsworth, star of the upcoming film “Thor.” Which guy? You mean, is Chris Hemsworth the guy on the left or the right? Oh, he’s both. On the left, Chris before he beefed up for the role. On the right, Chris after he channeled Cartman from “South Park” and screamed “Beefcake! Beefcaaaaake!” into a mirror while pumping iron. In the end, thanks to a combination of stuffing his gut and lifting weights (if you’re interested in the details, read Men’s Health), Chris gained 20 lbs. of muscle. Look at those guns. Hot. [Huffington Post]

For the most part, Hollywood actors work out. Many of them have nicely maintained physiques on the regular. But even your average Hollywood hottie has to take the muscles up a notch for certain roles. Here are 12 other already drool-worthy actors who beefed up for their craft…
