All I Want For Christmas Is A Beach Vacation

According to today’s New York Times‘ Business section, travel is expect to be down — way down — this holiday season and last minute deals on airfares and hotels could dip just as low. This is bad news for the economy, but great news for people like moi, who hate all the over the top cheer of the holiday season. I’d like nothing more than to escape the twinkling Christmas lights and street clogging shoppers and spend my holidays lounging on a beach with a cocktail in one hand and a gossip magazine in the other. And with the promise of doing it on the cheap, I just may. Keep reading »

    Bands We’d Like To See Reunite

    Did you hear? No Doubt is reuniting! I didn’t really realize they had officially broken up — I thought Gwen Stefani was just taking a few years off to make solo records — but I have to say I am kind of excited about this. Their last record, Rock Steady, is one of my favorites and I think it’s far better than much of the ear-assaulting nonsense that Gwen turns out on her own. “This s–t is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S”? More lie “this song is s$%t, S-$-%-T.” In any case, this reunion talk has got me thinking about the other bands and groups I would like to see come back together for one last hurrah. My dream list, after the jump. Please feel free to add yours! Keep reading »

    Breaking News: Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt Eloped

    I guess that would make sense, since no one they invited to their wedding (if there was anyone to invite) would come. [Perez Hilton]

    Update: According to an Us Weekly cover story, complete with photos (hmm, this elopement sounds super duper planned out), Heidi says, “The minute we said our vows, I couldn’t stop crying.” And of her disapproving mother? “I called her right before the ceremony, sort of hinted that something that happened, but her reaction was to ask me if we were breaking up! I told her it might be something else, and she said, ‘Well, if you ever plan on getting married just know that your stepdad is really upset that you want your father to walk you down the aisle. She was starting so much drama, it kind of pushed me toward wanting to get married without that. I don’t know when I’ll tell her.” Uh, how about before it’s plastered across magazines in her local grocery store? [Us Weekly]

    The Breakup Diaries: Five Ideal Rebounds

    I am almost — oh hell, really — ready for my first post-heartbreaking split rebound. Some are surprised I’ve ever waited this long, but, frankly, I’m nervous about even kissing someone new, let alone, um, other stuff. Vaguely excited though too — I was, after all, going to go the rest of my life only being with the same person (which was fine by me!) but there is something oh so thrilling about the unknown. That said, unless you have a heart made of pure steel, the rebound requires much caution — the last thing you want is to A) end up falling in love so soon again, B) have someone fall in love with you, or C) cause further life drama. After the jump, five of the safest — but still exciting! — rebound types… Keep reading »

    Behind The Scenes Of “SNL” With Justin Timberlake

    “Saturday Night Live” occasional does these “behind the scenes” interviews with their guests and I just came across this one, from a week ago, when Justin Timberlake made an appearance (well, two) on the Paul Rudd hosted episode. He’s even funny unrehearsed. Oh Justin, why do you insist on being so perfect? Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Michelle Williams On Heath Ledger

  • Michelle Williams on Heath Ledger: “It’s a strange thing to say, because I’m at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It’s just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone. In some ways it gets worse. That’s what I would say.” [Us Weekly]
  • I think it’s pretty obvious at this point that David Spade has an enormous penis with magical powers, because this time he’s managed to seduce Nicolette Sheridan. [DListed]
  • Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is shooting a spread for Playboy. Oy, really? [DListed]
  • Has Amy Winehouse finally come to terms with and admitted her marriage to Blake Incarcerated is dunzo? [Perez Hilton]

    Liveblogging The Season Finale Of “True Blood”

    Oh lordy you guys. Is it Sunday? Yes! That means we have only 30 minutes before the season finale of “True Blood” airs. I’m super excited to find out if the killer is really Rene, if Sookie truly chooses Sam over Bill, and who in the hell that naked lady in the middle of the road was. Also, just to warn you, but I pulled an all nighter in Atlantic City this weekend and just finished watching “The Notebook” a few minutes ago, so my mind is a little loopy and my emotions are kind of raw — this could be the weirdest liveblog ever.

    Five Ways To Look Better In Photos

    Here’s the thing. I think I am an attractive girl. But I am NOT photogenic. Like, every picture of me that looks good is accompanied by 20 others where I look busted, no joke. And because I am a tad vain — it’s okay, I admit it — I am always trying to figure out how I can look less droopy, gimpy, and awkward in photos, that way when Tyra Banks sees me on the street, she’ll know I am “America’s Next Top Model.” After the jump, five techniques that work.
