Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy have finally decided on a name for their newborn son — Bingham Hawn Bellamy! “Bing” for short, naturally. I’m suddenly nostalgic for the days when we thought it was strange that Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter after a piece of fruit. I suppose Bing isn’t as strange a name as, say, “Pilot Inspektor” (that’s the name of Jason Lee’s kid), and there are famous Bings in the world, like Bing Crosby. I love that his middle name is in honor of his Grandma Goldie. Bingham … Bing Hawn Bellamy … I’m warming up to it. Thank god. Anyway, little factoid for the new parents — the URL “Bing.com” is already taken. Bummer. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Last night, Ryan Gosling was on “Late Night with David Letterman,” and he had nothing but compliments for New York women. “Some of the prettiest women I have ever seen in my life live here,” he told Dave. “Also because it’s so hot they appear to you like some kind of mirage and they are all screaming into their cell phones.” Which brings me to STORY TIME. A couple weeks ago, Simcha — y’all remember Simcha, right? — texted me the following: “Your man is at Whole Foods!” Naturally, I knew she meant The Gos. I happened to be about, oh, 12 blocks away from the Whole Foods in question and considering that I have been frothing at the mouth for a Gosling sighting, I wasn’t about to let this opportunity slide. “Follow him,” I texted back. “I am on my way.” And I took off running. Well, running, and then walking fast because my side kept hurting, all while Simcha sent me text updates on Ryan’s journey through the grocery store. “He’s buying fruit!” “Now he’s in the fancy cheese section.” Keep reading »
Time for some real talk. We love summer, but the bane of our existence come July is one thing — sweat. Specifically, sweat pouring from places our deodorant stick usually doesn’t see — under our breasts and beneath our derrieres. These curves come with a price — a damp, sticky one. One recent summer day saw us applying Speed Stick to our underboob region in a fit of desperation — that’s when we realized we needed something more hardcore. Enter Silky Underwear Dusting Powder by LUSH, which is designed to keep those sexy lady areas dry and comfy. Because there’s nothing more uncomfortable or unsightly than two half moon-shaped sweat stains under your girls.
A restricted clip/trailer for “Friends With Benefits”
(above, opening July 22) has me curious about something — have you ever f**ked and chewed gum at the same time? Excuse my French — Justin Timberlake
and Mila Kunis
drop the f-bomb a lot in the trailer above, so I’m just getting into the spirit. Anyway, they also are seen doin’ the nasty while both smacking on gum. I can only imagine that this is going to be some sort of minor plot point in the film, as I don’t know of anyone that actually thinks it’s a good idea to chew gum and hump at the same time. Am I crazy? Keep reading »
“Planking” … “cone-ing” … interweb trends move so quickly one can hardly keep up. The latest is “owling.” It’s exactly what it sounds like. You perch on something like an owl and try to look wise and bird-like. Fairly simple. This is exactly the kind of trend I can get into. I mean, I’ve been doing variations of “owling” for years, only I haven’t documented it. It’s usually been done in the interest of annoying my little brother. See above, me “owling” in the Frisky office. I enjoyed it a bit too much. Seriously, you should try it. [WOW] Keep reading »
