Last year, when I did my taxes for 2009, my accountant and I made a not-so-shocking discovery. My three biggest expenses for the year — outside of food, utilities, and rent — were 1) cabs, 2) manicures/pedicures, and 3) wine. I made a vow to cut back on cabs as one of my New Year’s resolutions, but I’m not giving up my weekly manis and pedis anytime soon. As for wine?

Miss Arkansas’ Ventriloquism Act Isn’t Enough To Win Miss America Title


Saturday night’s Miss America pageant should have come down to three ladies: Miss New York, who was running on a gay rights platform; Miss Delaware, who suffers from alopecia and is bald; and above, Miss Arkansas Alyse Eady, whose talent was this amazingly bizarre ventriloquism act. Sadly, a blonde robot hailing from Nebraska won the coveted title. Boo. Hiss. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Sandra Bullock And Ryan Reynolds Are Not Lovahs, She Swears

“I think there will be a collective sigh amongst women across the United States when I say he’s not my lovah. He’s just an amazing friend for 10 years … but I don’t get his loving after dark.”

Sandra Bullock denied the rumors that she and newly single Ryan Reynolds are doing the horizontal polka when asked by Al Roker. I wish he had asked her if she’s seeing the same hairstylist as Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. [People] Keep reading »
