“Just so all my fans know, I’m getting to the bottom of this. It’s the first I’ve heard of this. Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the third time. I find this very contradictory. I love you all!!”
—LeAnn Rimes’ tweeting a response to Shape editor-in-chief Valerie Latona’s apology to readers for making the “terrible mistake” of featuring a “husband-stealer” on the cover. See Latona’s response after the jump. Keep reading »
I was sick this Halloween, so I missed all the fun. I couldn’t even get it together to put together one of my lazy costumes. So this year I am living vicariously through the celebs. Click through to see celebrity Halloween costumes like Kim Kardashian as Little Red Riding Hood. Let’s hope she made it home without getting eaten by a wolf.
After reading Betty White’s recent interview in Parade Magazine, I’ve decided I want to live inside her head. She talked about how much she loves Cadillacs, and how she always names them after birds. Her current Caddy is named “Seagull”—her previous ones were named “Canary” and “Parakeet.” Oh, and her dog is named “Pontiac.” So cars are named after birds and dogs are named after cars. Just go with it, Betty! I wonder what else she names? [Parade] Keep reading »
Celine Dion and René Angélil have finally decided on names for their twin princes. We had some suggestions for them, but I guess they didn’t like them? From here on out, their sons will be known as Eddy and Nelson. Eddy is named after Eddy Marnay, the man who produced Celine’s first five records. And Nelson’s namesake is Nelson Mandela, whom the couple met during Celine’s South African tour. That’s a pretty big name to live up to. [People] After the jump, some more celebrity kids and their namesakes.
“Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks is a beautiful and busty working actress. But yesterday the star was mistaken for a working girl. She drove a prospective John mad when she took a break outside of a pawn shop while filming her new movie, “Drive.” He approached her and asked her how much she charged before he was swiftly escorted away by the crew. I wonder if he asked her to play secretary? In all fairness, she does kind of look the part for this film. [WWTDD] Keep reading »
Oopsie! It’s two days until Halloween and I haven’t lifted a finger to try to find a costume. Yes, I am that person who could care less about dressing up for Halloween. Don’t judge me, I’m just lazy about that kind of stuff. I am like some kind of rare-blooming plant. About every 10 years I get inspired and some amazing costume springs forth. But once All Hallow’s Eve has passed, I’m back to being lazy again … for the next 10 years. My official Halloween motto is: When in doubt, wear a snout. I’m thinking about this lovely elephant snout for the party I’m going to on Saturday. Only $2.99! Thoughts? You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money prepping for Halloween. Click through to see some costume options for the lazy proud – many of which I’ve actually rocked in the past. [Halloween Adventure]
While in captivity in North Korea, Current TV reporter Laura Ling thought she would never be able to start the family she always wanted. Thanks to the efforts of many, including Bill Clinton, who escorted her back to the land of the free, her dream has actually come true. On Wednesday, Ling and her husband welcomed daughter Li Jefferson Clayton into the world. Her first name, Li, is in honor of Laura’s sister—Lisa Ling. Awwww. And Jefferson? Well, that’s because she is so grateful for Bill Clinton’s help—Jefferson is Clinton’s middle name. (And Clayton sure sounds similar to Clinton.) A baby named after Bill Clinton? Sweet, but kind of weird, right? [People]
