Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we learned Pete’s spunk was just as potent as ever. Oh, and Peggy is our hero. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Don’t Mess With Faith Evans

  • Faith Evans, wife of dead rapper Notorious B.I.G., has an autobiography out, and in it she explains how she once found Biggie in bed with Lil’ Kim. “I grabbed some chick out of the bed and started beating her ass. At some point, the chick’s wig came off in my hand: It was a short, cropped wig. I stopped throwing punches for a minute to get a good look at the chick I was beating up. It Lil’ Kim. She was completely butt-naked, yelling as I pushed her around the room. ‘So you’re not f–king her, right?’ I screamed at Big. ‘Yeah, you not messing with her anymore right?’” Um, wasn’t Lil’ Kim’s entire album, Hardcore, about being Biggie’s mistress?

    Barack Obama Picks Joe Biden As His Running Mate!

    I got the text message from the Obama camp, by the way, at 3:30 AM. On a Saturday, peeps? Really? Anyway, Joe Biden is not quite as hot as Paris Hilton or as funny as Ellen or as fist-bumpin’ as Michelle, and he doesn’t have a vag, but he does have the foreign policy experience that Obama is lacking. Time to give them a nickname! JoeBama? BamBi? BarackIn? [CNN] Keep reading »

    Chick Flick Fever: Sarah Haskins Is Just Like US!

    “There are three comedies coming out this fall aimed at women,” she says. “You have seen them all before. But you will see them all again.” Ain’t that the truth. Keep reading »

    The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?

    ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Gwen Stefani Pops Out A Little Zuma

  • Gwen Stefani FINALLY popped, after the longest pregnancy in the history of celebrity knock-ups. She and husband Gavin Rossdale named the little boy Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale. It is impossible for me to come up with a better joke than Michael K at DListed, who wrote, “Zuma Nesta Rock sounds like a planned community in Arizona.” So true. [DListed]

    Poll: Does The Term “Wife Beater Tank-Top” Offend You?

    A couple weeks ago we did a post on this awesome, but expensive tank-top/garter combo from Kiki De Montparnasse — because the tank was the kind with the ribbing, I used what I thought was the most common term for the tank itself. A wife beater. Last night, I got an email from a reader which read:

    There is absolutely no reason for a website for ladies to be using “wife beater” as fun slang! Ladies in the know also call them boy beaters — I don’t appreciate that either but take note of the language you use and accept. It influences our culture!

    Star Couplings: Jessica Simpson Calls Carrie Underwood A Liar

  • Jessica Simpson was asked on a radio show about Carrie Underwood’s assertion that Tony Romo still calls her — Jessica said that she and Tony laughed about it and that she knows it’s not true because she checked Tony’s call log. Girlfriend, he can delete any evidence you know? [Perez Hilton]

    Crave: Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

    Pearls are timeless and ribbon is so girly. But for some reason, when you put the two together, they kind of a have a rock ‘n’ roll edge. This necklace from Wink would look amazing with a white wife beater tank, jeans, and heels. Kind of like Jackie O, gone bad. [$58, WinkNYC.com] Keep reading »
