Tim Gunn Rooted For Mondo, But Is Cool With Gretchen Winning “Project Runway” Because She’s Poor


Well, this is interesting. In the video above, Tim Gunn is asked what he thought about the “Project Runway” finale, in which Gretchen was awarded the top prize. Tim explains that host Heidi Klum asked him who he thought should win and he agreed with her that Mondo was the best choice, but that Heidi couldn’t get Nina Garcia or Michael Kors to budge. In the end, Tim agreed with some random woman in a deli, who told him that Mondo would succeed no matter what, while Gretchen needed the money. And that, my friends, will go down as the real reason Gretchen, who everyone hated for her attitude and hippie dippie designs (except me), won “Project Runway.” Keep reading »

Fertility Expert Says 20-Something Women Should Freeze Their Ovaries

When it comes to baby-craving, I am a complete lady cliché. I remark that my own ovaries are rotting between bites of huevos rancheros at brunch. I joke about having a back-up plan that involves “accidentally” getting knocked up by someone handsome, successful, and smart. Just this morning, I got an email from a pregnant friend, who is due any day now, telling me she was having minor contractions and I got teary-eyed. So, when I read the headline “Women ‘should freeze ovaries in their twenties’,” I felt the urge to mentally flagellate myself for being nearly 31 with only Trader Joe’s mac ‘n’ cheese in my freezer. Fertility scare tactics work like a charm on me. But not this one! Keep reading »

10 Countries That Have Elected Women Into The Highest Office

This week, Brazil got its first female president, Dilma Rousseff, who was formerly the energy secretary and chief of staff to President Luiz Inácio da Silva. Taking 56 percent of the vote, Rousseff said, “I hope the fathers and mothers of little girls will look at them and say, ‘Yes, women can.’” It seems trite to be all “girl power!” about this, but I get kind of giddy when a lady is elected into a country’s highest office. A handful of South American governments are being run by women now, and there are women in top political offices around the world. We’ve rounded up some of them up after the jump.

10 Celeb Hotties Who Look Better Buzzed

There’s no doubt that Justin Timberlake has gone through a big style transformation over the years and he’s never looked hotter. But his hair has been through the ringer too — remember the tight, white boy curls? The cornrows? Eek. My favorite Justin ‘do is definitely when he keeps it short and shaved and lucky for me, he recently broke out his razor and buzzed his locks for a movie role. He’s just one of many male stars who looks better with a shaved head. Here are nine others — do you agree?

Judd Apatow’s Hilarious Video For American Jewish World Service


I’ve never been a huge fan of charity videos because they’re so dramatic and subsequently always make me cry. I cry at the babies playing with flies. The sad-eyed dogs. The animals in cages faintly crying. If Sarah McLachlan is playing in the background, I’m already bummed. But Judd Apatow has gone a totally different route with his video for AJWS, the American Jewish World Service. I literally laughed out loud several times and it actually made me want to support them because they made a good case and didn’t mess up my mascara. Keep reading »
