Bride Saves Family From House Fire While Still In Her Wedding Dress

Most of the time, we hear bad things about brides — they’re dressing their friends in unflattering polyester blends, or freaking out over a misplaced zinnia in a bouquet. But get ready for a bride who’s a real American hero. Last night, Georgette Clemons was leaving her wedding reception when she saw smoke coming from a nearby house. She ran in and saved an entire family, which included pulling a woman out from the heavy smoke who didn’t want to leave without her animals. By the time the firefighters arrived, Georgette was outside, folding up her blackened wedding dress. Okay, please tell me someone is starting a comic based around a bride superhero. Her garter belt could become a slingshot and her veil, a parachute! Seriously, we have a best-seller on our hands. [Yahoo!]

Style Stealer: Kate Bosworth’s Little Denim Vest

Kate Bosworth showed up at the airport yesterday for a flight to London, and she looked better than we do, even on a good outfit day. A fancy skirt and a gray T-shirt is one of our favorite combos, but it was Kate’s denim vest that really caught our eye. We’d long thought this hard-to-pull-off piece belonged only in the closets of people still stuck in the ’80s or — if it’s really tight and worn with nothing underneath — loose women. Kate’s denim vest is neither dated nor trashy, and it adds a little toughness to an otherwise tender outfit. Keep reading »

Dating Amelia: Everyone’s Got Advice

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of advice. Solicited, unsolicited, much of it from female friends, most of it contradictory. Many of my female friends are in relationships, including my four closest girl friends, two of whom are married and two who are headed in that direction. They all are living vicariously through my “dating adventures,” though I’ve tried to tell them that it’s about as exciting as a bowl of oatmeal.

People give advice based on their own experiences. What works for them has got to work for you too, right? Like following a cake recipe, if you follow the right steps, you’ll get the end result you want. Except dating is nothing like baking and there’s no “right” way when it comes to matters of the heart. I watched “He’s Just Not That Into You” this weekend (out tomorrow on DVD) and if there’s a takeaway from that movies it’s this: everyone has a dating tale that is an exception to another person’s rule. Which is why all of the advice I’ve been getting has been making my head spin. Keep reading »

Gallery: When Celebrities Wear Douchey T-Shirts

Yesterday, “American Idol” alum and Tony Award Nominee Constantine Maroulis kicked off the Broadway Summer Softball League’s 55th season by singing the National Anthem. But according to his shirt, Maroulis was celebrating something else, too. He proudly donned a baseball-tee that read, “Hooray For Boobies.” Um, ew? We have to give the famous Simon Cowell scowl to this shirt.

We thought the days of the message t-shirt were behind us. Alas, no. When we took a look around Celebuland, we noticed lots of other stars sporting ironic, obnoxious, and plain old WTF tees. Get ready to cringe.

Bruno 69′s Eminem At The MTV Movie Awards

Last night’s MTV Movie Awards were pretty good — host Andy Samberg was delightfully random, “Twilight”‘s Kristen Stewart dropped her award and looked vaguely like she was on something, and Robert Pattinson was predictably hot. But by far the best moment was when Bruno (aka Sasha Baron Cohen) flew over the stage to present an award, ass exposed, and landed crotch first in Eminem’s face, in the “69″ position. Though this was likely staged, Em’s reaction was priceless. Keep reading »

What’s Pro-Life About Murdering Doctors? Abortion Doctor Killed In Kansas

Dr. George Tiller, who, among other things, administered abortions at his Wichita, Kansas women’s clinic, was shot and killed today in front of his church. He was one of the few doctors who stilled performed late-term abortions, and his clinic was the target of many anti-choice protests over the years, including a previous attempt on his life in 1993. He was 67-years-old. A suspect is in custody. [CNN]

Some anti-choices groups have condemned the killing, while others have taken the opportunity to continue to condemn him, saying, “George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God.” Keep reading »

Gallery: Hollywood Goes To Broadway

Phylicia Rashad, otherwise known as Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show,” made her debut in “August: Osage County” Tuesday night on Broadway. Rashad is playing “Violet Weston, the brittle, uncensored drug-abusing matriarch of an Oklahoma family,” according to the New York Times. Wait, isn’t the rest of the Weston family white? As a result of some “nontraditional casting, Ms. Rashad inherits a white stage family of three daughters, a husband, a sister and other relatives.” Well, if anyone can pull that off, we bet it’s Phylicia.

Lately, it seems like lots of actors have been making their way from Hollywood to Broadway. Here are some of our favorites who’ve given the stage a shot.
