You think that idiot rocker Cliff Poncier has completely effed things up with Janet Livermore in “Singles” until he turns it out in the elevator scene by complimenting her hat and saying “bless you” when she sneezes. It’s every former grunge girl’s fantasy.
Britt Reid is the hard-partying heir who eventually transforms into the superhero Green Hornet. Seth Rogan recently revealed his real-life inspiration for Britt’s character. “We kind of based him off a male Paris Hilton, as embarrassing as that is to say.

Miss Delaware, Kayla Martell, one of the ladies competing for the Miss America title this week, believes she has a leg up on her fellow competitors … her baldness. Suffering from a rare form of alopecia, Kayla started losing her hair in her early teens. “By the time I was 13, my hair was out completely. The thought of getting a wig never crossed my mind at all. My mother first brought up the suggestion and brought home this awful brown wig. I don’t know why, because I’m naturally blond and everyone in my family is blond.
