Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

Heidi Montag went on David Letterman last night and totally gave her side of the story on the whole Lauren Conrad sex tape thingy. Strangely, suddenly we kind of believe her!

The Daily Show did a segment on abstinence-only education and suggested a fun activity for those holding onto their chastity. Dry-humping! Oh and our new favorite word for our vag since va-jay-jay is so 2007? Shame-cave! [Feministing] … READ MORE »

It’s easy to forget that evil, mean Simon Cowell was once a young, impressionable, and innocent nine-year-old. Tara Miller called up during American Idol last night to remind Simon (and the millions who watch the show) that she remembers him from those days — they shared their first kiss at the bottom of… READ MORE »

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are engaged! He’s 11 years younger! We suspected she might be engaged when she wore that big rock to the Tribeca Film Festival — one tiny note, however. The ring looks exactly like the ring Nick Cannon gave to his ex-fiance Selita Ebanks. Hmm. [Us Weekly]
