Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Ami Angelowicz
It’s only 9 a.m. — is it wrong that I feel like imbibing a Bloody Mary while I blog away? I’d like to think not. A drink before noon every once in a while is not such a bad thing, right? There are some fabulous females on television who make me feel A-OK about daytime drinking. According to them, any time of day is the right time of day for a cocktail. Carpe diem! It’s Happy Hour somewhere. After the jump, our favorite daytime drunks. That is said with the utmost love and respect, of course. Cheers!
What is it about “Angry Birds?” I wouldn’t know because I don’t have an iPhone. I know, I am the one of the last humans without one. Embarrassing. I’m still hooked on Snood. Maybe I should ask Amelia, who is probably playing “Angry Birds” as we speak. I hate to use the “A” word, but I think it might be appropriate in her case. The woman is a little bit … well … addicted. But she’s not alone in her struggle. Many other celebs (and non-celebs) have confirmed their feverish obsession for the game being called “the next Pac Man.” There are even rumors about movie and television versions of the game. Click through to see some celebs who have a little bit of an “Angry Birds” problem.
Before Mia Wasikowska was on the map as one Hollywood’s hot up and comers, she was in the ballet studio 35 hours a week. She thought she would be a ballerina, but now she’s glad that her fate took a turn. “Dance is about perfection. It’s about the line of your ankle, the ideal weight, minute things that most people don’t notice but that dancers are trained to see and spend hours obsessing over in front of the mirror … Dancers are kept in a perpetual state of pre-puberty, and for young girls in particular, that type of pressure breeds insecurities. You can become so obsessed with the smallest details—it was a good thing for me to get out of,” she told Black Book Magazine.

I know you have been laying awake at night wondering where Prince William and Kate Middleton will go on their royal honeymoon. Well, Prince Willy may have given their destination away. “I love scuba diving. I have always wanted to dive the [Great] Barrier Reef,” he revealed while on a humanitarian visit to Australia. He also hinted that he would like to return, perhaps on his honeymoon. Proof enough for me. I will start collecting Australian travel postcards to put up on my new Prince and Kate fridge.

“Now I use an electronic cigarette, I know it’s ridiculous, but it’s helping me not to actually smoke real cigarettes. You feel like you are smoking, and you get to exhale but it’s just water vapor and not nicotine. I’ve been doing it for six months. Smoking sucks!”
– Katherine Heigl on her electronic cigarette habit. Why is she even trying to pretend like she didn’t get the idea from Allison DuBois on her infamous episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills“? At least Katherine realizes it’s ridiculous. Do I smell (well, they actually don’t smell) an emerging celebrity trend? E-cigs are the new cigarettes. Who’s gonna be puffing on one next? I heard Lindsay Lohan was trying to quit… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
My way of paying tribute to the extraordinary Elizabeth Taylor will be to shut myself in for a weekend, put on a fabulous frock, douse myself in White Diamonds, and watch some of her best films. After the jump, 10 films for my Liz Taylor movie marathon. Popcorn and cookie dough encouraged.
Eighteen-year-old high school senior, Keith Yearwood, is ready to reveal his true identity as the adorable baby on the cover of the 1994 Notorious B.I.G. album, Ready to Die. For many years, the baby with the big afro was speculated to be one of Biggie or Diddy’s children. Not so much. Yearwood was hired through a modeling agency. He was paid $150 for the two-hour photo shoot. His full afro is what landed him the gig. “It’s an honor to be on this album,” he says. Clearly, he’s not into rocking big hair anymore.

LeAnn Rimes wishes no ill will against Brandi Glanville, the woman whom she nabbed Eddie Cibrian from. In the wake of flying Twitter bombs — allegedly from fake accounts — the ladies had no choice but to hold out the virtual olive branch. Just to prove that the fighting was truly behind them, LeAnn released a peace treaty via Twitter:
As a collective unit, Brandi and I would like all negativity to cease toward one another. We have communicated and have a direct understanding that we are ONLY ourselves on Twitter and have no other accounts that try to destroy one another. Please for our families’ sake stop the hate now and let us live OUR lives. We don’t need opinions or outside help in order for that to happen. Thanks, LeAnn and Brandi.
Well, that settles it. Good work, LeAnn and Brandi. Somewhere Eddie Cibrian is drinking a beer. Click through to see some more feuding celebrities who buried the hatchet. [Huffington Post]
I was lulled to sleep many a ’90s eve watching alternative music videos (yes, actual music videos) on MTV’s “120 Minutes.” The network announced this week that they will be resurrecting the show and its legendary host, Matt Pinfield, as a monthly program that will air on MTV2. Pinch me. Am I dreaming? No, it’s really happening. It’s about damn time. After the jump, some more of our favorite things from the ’90s that are getting the second chance they deserve.

According to The Knot, one out of four women surveyed were not satisfied with the way their S.O. proposed to them. Complaints about their proposals included that it wasn’t romantic or original enough, that it was too over-the-top, or that the dude came to the party sans ring. I would predict that these 25 percent also turned out to be the most irritating of bridezillas. A proposal is just a moment and sometimes moments don’t go as planned. The point is the lifelong commitment you’re entering into, right? But what do I know, I’ve never been in a proposal situation. How about you? Were you satisfied with the way your proposal went?
