Pretzel Crisps Strikes Again With New Ad Campaign

Remember a few months ago, when Pretzel Crisps debuted their “new look” with ads touting that “you can never be too thin”? And then remember how they pulled those ads after the blogosphere flamed the company for using pro-anorexia language to cheekily sell their product? Well, Pretzel Crisps has a new ad campaign and the company seems to have changed its tune and is now thumbing its nose at critics. “We’re thin and stacked so lose the old bag,” the ad campaign’s slogan, plays upon an offensive trifecta — you can never be too thin, too busty, or too young. Weak. My hummus shall miss using you as a vehicle, Pretzel Crisps. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

8 Celebs Who’ve Been Blindsided By Divorce

Actress Laura Dern was apparently totally blindsided when her hubby, Grammy winner Ben Harper, filed for a divorce this week. The two have been married since 2005 and have two kids together. Meanwhile, Harper claims in the legal documents that they’ve been separated since January, but friends of the couple say they’ve been traveling together all year and were intimate maybe as recently as last week. I’m not sure why family friends know their love-making schedule, but how hard is it to have a sit-down before filing divorce papers? I guess Hollywood is all about the dramatic exits? [TMZ]

After the jump are a few other celebs who’ve been blindsided with divorce papers.

Daniel Radcliffe Is Single And Ready To Mingle

“I’ve been in relationships from the age of 14 and now I’m single. I said to a friend the other day, ‘Dude, I’m doing a show with dancers. I’ve got to be single.’ He was like, ‘Don’t sleep with anyone in your own show. That’s a mistake.’ It’s good advice. But I’m not sure I’ll stick to it.”

Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t think he’ll be able to help himself from getting down with his sexy co-stars when he appears in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway this spring. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

10 Super Awesome Forgotten Celebrities

Some people come into your life and make a lasting impression. Others you might only vaguely remember as making you feel a certain way. I remember feeling immediately exhausted every time Kimmy Gibbler entered a room on “Full House” because she was always yammering on about something and causing trouble for D.J. Tanner, who was obviously the sane one. Since the show ended, Andrea Barber went to Whittier College, married Jeremy Rytky, and has two kids. And now she’s on Twitter. She also occasionally hosts Drag Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood, which is pretty cool. [Twitter]

Every time I hear a “Where Are They Now?” story, I immediately think of other people I’m curious about. So I’ve rounded up nine more forgotten celebrities!

Trailer Park: “Life As We Know It,” “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story,” “Nowhere Boy,” “Secretariat”

I haven’t been everywhere, but I think it’s safe to say after all the bizarre weather patterns last week that it is finally fall now! It’s also that wonderful month when drug stores turn into creepy candy cornucopias and the movie theater is flooded with horror movies. This week, there’s actually a bunch of exciting movies coming out! In honor of what would be John Lennon‘s 70th birthday, his biopic, “Nowhere Boy,” is in theaters. There is also the “talk to your friends about the fact that you made them godparents” fable, “Life as We Know It.” We find love in a psych ward in “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” And then there’s a prison movie (“Stone”), a horse movie (“Secretariat”), and two horror movies (“I Spit on Your Grave” and “My Soul to Take”). Now go to the movies! Bring some candy corn. God knows there isn’t enough corn in your diet. Brought to you by the American Corn Growers Association. Not really though. Keep reading »

At this point, Sandra Bullock has been everything from a bus driver to a beauty queen to a Southern football mom. But there’s one place she hasn’t been—space! So thank goodness she’s in talks with Warner Bros. to star in “Gravity” alongside Robert Downey Jr.! The two will play astronauts and Bullock’s character will apparently struggle to “survive an avalanche of space junk.” What’s space junk? [People]

Anyway, this will be Bullock’s first role since her Oscar-winning performance in “The Blind Side” and she’s beat out some heavyweights. So in honor of the negotiations, I’ve rounded up my ten favorite space movies! I’ll bring the Tang!
