Quick Vid: See Spot Squat

If we had to pick one exercise we have the ultimate love/hate relationship with, it’d be squats. That’s why we were particularly impressed by this adorable dog who does them with ease. Seriously, the pooch could give Richard Simmons and Kim Kardashian a run for their buns of steel. (P.S. Urban dictionary has a totally different idea of what a squat dog is.) Keep reading »

Who’s America’s Sexiest Comedienne?

Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But it’s their wit, slapstick antics, and all-around hilariousness that stole our hearts. So while we wished they asked, “Who’s the funniest comedienne?” we decided to take a look at the current rankings. What we found may surprise you. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Brooke Hogan’s Album Cover Is Terrifying

Brooke Hogan posted the cover for her new album “The Redemption” on her website today, and it looks like one of those airbrushed kitty t-shirts you can buy at the beach. What’s with the wings? Who thinks that is a real skin color? And, uh, why is she unleashing this on our eyes, not to mention ears? [5/27/09]

“The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”: Danielle Staub Is The Ultimate Villainess

I was kind of skeptical about whether the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” would be able to bring the drama. After watching last night’s episode, I have no more worries. Sure, Jacqueline Laurita needs to get a backbone, and Teresa Giudice doesn’t seem to do much more than spend money, but Bravo hit the mother lode with Danielle Straub. Compared with the other housewives, including the ones in Orange County, Atlanta, and New York City, she is the ultimate villainess. Don’t let the coy smile fool you. Danielle, as one of the most divisive characters, had it totally right when she said, “You either love me or you love to hate me, there is no in between.” At this point, I don’t love or hate Danielle as a person, but I do love the drama she brings.

A New Ink Makes Tattoos Almost Removable


We’ve spent the last week laughing at Hayden Panettiere’s misspelled tattoo. Perhaps if her tattoo artist had usedInfinitink, she could have gotten that mess fixed. Infinitink is a new type of tattoo ink that uses small amounts of pigment to create the same look as regular inks. The big benefit? If you ever decide you’re not feeling your tattoo, it can be removed in one laser treatment rather than, say 12. [Time] Keep reading »

Celebs Come Out To Support Gay Marriage

Sophia Bush & Shanna Moakler

Yesterday’s ruling by the California Supreme Court to uphold Proposition 8 was a huge disappointment to us and other supporters of marriage equality. There were peaceful protests throughout the state, including in Hollywood, where celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Pete Wentz, and, yes, Perez Hilton came out to march. Hmm, wonder what Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was up to?

Mad Science: Ladies Talk Way More Than Dudes

Science has confirmed something we’ve known since middle school: Women talk more than men—about three times as much—plus we speak at a much faster rate than guys do. According to this study women spit out 20,000 words a day—that’s 13,000 more than most guys say in any given day. The reason? According to Dr. Luan Brizendine, author of The Female Brain, “Women devote more brain cells to talking than men.” She says we’re built to do this in the womb, while guys are wired differently.

Dr. Brizendine also has some other doozies for the age old Mars-versus-Venus debate. “Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road,” she says. Meanwhile, go figure, the part of the brain she calls the ‘sex processor’ is twice as big as in men as it is in women.

So do these findings mesh with the highly scientific research you’ve done in your life? Or does this sound totally right? Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Michelle Williams’ White Canvas Slip-Ons

While we think some celebs, like Michelle Williams, deserve more privacy in their lives, we’re secretly a little happy the paparazzi snap them as they go about their business so we can see what they wear when they’re not walking a red carpet. Michelle Williams always looks so cute and casually put-together when she runs out for coffee, and we love how her shoes look as though she’s walked 1,000 miles in them. Want similar sneaks? Pick a pair from the 10 after the jump, then wear them every single day this summer, making sure not to avoid puddles or mud. Keep reading »

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Movie Remake In The Works

You either are or love someone who is a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fan. For me, it’s my best friend AJ who once wrote “Buffy” fan-fiction and will never live it down. But in saying you’re a Buffy fan, everyone agrees it means you love the TV show, not the 1992 movie. (Which I argue was amazing purely on the basis of Luke Perry.) Yesterday, it was announced that a second “Buffy” movie is in the works—magical words fans of the show have been waiting to hear since it ended six years ago. But they were chagrined to discover that “Buffy” scribe Joss Whedon is not at all involved in this new project. Instead, the remake will be the brainchild of Fran and Kaz Kuzui, who produced the original movie. Oh, and Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be starring in this new flick. Nor will their be any Angel, Willow, Xander, or Spike in this new slayer universe. [HollywoodReporter] Keep reading »
