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.

Girl Scout Leader Embezzles Cookie Fund

Talk about stealing from the cookie jar. In Dayton, Ohio a former Girl Scout troop leader, Tamara Jo Ward, was convicted of taking $28,000 over the course of five years from the bank account where her troop stored their cookie money. Using a debit card, she used the money to pay her bills, buy groceries, and even go on vacation. But she got caught. And yesterday, she was sentenced to cough up $20,000 in restitution. Ward’s going to have to be a tough cookie to deal with all of those angry girl scouts. Maybe they should make a new badge in her honor? Something with the scales of justice embroidered on it?

Anna Wintour Won’t Put Rihanna On A Vogue Cover After Leaked Nudie Photos

It’s no secret that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the Darth Vader of fashion. (Remember that “60 Minutes” segment where she fessed up to telling Oprah to drop twenty pounds for her 1998 Vogue cover and then called chubby Minnesotans “little houses.”) But Anna has reached a whole new level of meaniness. According to Rihanna’s close friend, Wintour had been talking to Rihanna about doing a Vogue cover for weeks. At the Met Costume Gala on May 4th, Wintour supposedly told RiRi that Vogue “absolutely loves her and really wanted to work with her.” But as soon as nude photographs of Rihanna (maybe?) were leaked on the internet, Wintour stopped returning Rihanna’s calls.

Get Your Rocks Off: The Perfect Summer Playlist

I’ve finally got a base tan, which is how I know summer is almost here. To celebrate, I’ve put together a kick ass summer playlist of old and new jams that act as the perfect accompaniment to frosty Coronas, gossip mags, and a day at the beach. And check out the playlists our girls at Lemondrop put together for gals planning on hitting the asphalt for a summer roadtrip — “99 Luft Balloons” AND “Forever Your Girl”? Hell yes. Keep reading »
