The New York Times Wedding Announcements Are Amazing

I love to read the wedding section in The New York Times — it truly is the sports section for women, or the sports section for people with an interest in giggling over the cheesiness of strange couples and schmaltzy writing. Take the wedding announcement for the lovely couple, Tess Taylor and Taylor Schreiner (ZOMG, what if he took HER last name?), which had numerous passages that gave me a good guffaw today:

“Her family has a ramshackle seaside cottage in Maine filled with water-stained furniture and damp books whose pages fall out as easily as the leaves of an overcooked artichoke.”

Oof, descriptive! Keep reading »

Slideshow: Non-Engagement Rings

Hypothetically speaking, let’s say your relationship status suddenly went from “HAPPILY ENGAGED” to “HEARTBROKEN AND IN LIMBO”. In addition to how absolutely crappy you might feel, your ring finger probably feels a little naked too, without the presence of its previous occupant, aka your engagement ring. Even if you’re not one of these suffering souls, there’s no reason why a lady can’t buy herself her own damn ring to wear on, yes, her left ring finger. After the jump, 10 rings that say “I love you, self” better than any rock. Keep reading »

    DJ A.M. And Travis Barker Seriously Injured In Plane Crash, Four Others Dead

    This is some sad news. DJ A.M. (real name: Adam Goldstein), best known as Nicole Richie’s ex-fiance, and Travis Barker, of the band Blink-182 were involved in a very serious plane crash early this morning in South Carolina. Both are being treated for serious burns, but are alive. Unfortunately, four others in the private jet were not as lucky, and were killed with the plane crashed and caught fire. One of those killed was Chris Baker, Barker’s assistant. The group was flying on the private jet in an effort to get back to California quickly after Goldstein and Barker played a show because Baker had just found out his wife had gone into labor. Barker promised to get him home as quickly as possible to be with her — freaking tragic. The two pilots, as well as Barker’s bodyguard, were also killed. Barker and Goldstein are being treated for their burn injuries and are in critical, but stable condition. [DListed]

    UPDATE: Apparently the note above about Chris Baker’s wife being in labor is total poppycock. Keep reading »

    Slideshow: Sarah Palin & Other Tanorexic Stars

    When I heard that VP-nominee Sarah Palin installed a tanning bed in the Governor’s Mansion in Alaska, I was simultaneously amused and appalled. But Palin isn’t alone. There are tons of celebrities who are STILL fans of visiting the tanning salon despite all the research which shows how dangerous the practice is — of course, some of them do indulge in the much safer spray-tanning craze, as well. Either way, the color their skin turns is hardly what you’d consider…flattering or particularly natural and healthy-looking. Check out the color samples above — those are the actual skin colors of celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton — with the imaginary names I’d give them if they actually bottled it in fake tanner formula. Check out all the celebrities with an obsession for having a bronze glow, after the jump… Keep reading »

    Quote Of The Day: Aubrey O’Day On Period Sex

    “There was some new guy I was dating, and it was the first time we were going to go there, and he was weird about it. So I ask [adult film star] Jenna [Jameson] for advice and she’s like, ‘Honey, it’s just a little war paint, who cares?’” — Danity Kane’s Aubrey O’Day in Complex [Dlisted] Keep reading »
