I felt a swell of pride when I heard about an intern at Grazia magazine after my own heart. This young genius, who was sent out regularly to buy fat-free lattes for the beauty department, revealed a little secret on her last day at the magazine. She had been buying them full-fat lattes all along. I can only imagine the look on their faces as they ran to the bathroom to vomit. This girl is a hero as far as I’m concerned. I hope interns of Anna Wintour types everywhere are listening because I can’t think of anything worse than being an abused intern. In fact, I have a checkered intern past of my own … [Guardian] Keep reading »

“I had a dream last night that my family and I were over my grandmother’s house (I live there with my grandma). My cousin and I were talking in the living room, and a blanket that was over the heater caught on fire. We rushed into the kitchen and screamed for everyone to get out. Everyone was luckily outside in the backyard when the fire broke out, so everyone got out safely. We stood back, and watched as our family’s home went up in flames. The fire started to flare, and we started running down the block. When we stopped to rest, we were all excited that we got out without harm. Then I started crying frantically because I realized I left my dog behind. I awoke in a cold sweat before I knew what to do next. What does this mean?” – Up In Flames
If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with Liberace and Vincent Price, and finally engaged in multiple, incestuous man-on-man kisses (with tongue). Interesting. He said in his opening monologue that every move in his career is calculated. What shall we, your adoring audience, take this to mean, Mr. Franco? Is pretending to be gay part of your “performance art”? Or could this just be a ploy to perpetuate rumors that you’re gay and confuse your fans? Stay tuned to the Franco gallery for the next clue.

Let’s start with Andy Samberg. I’ll never forget that wonderful evening in 2005 when “Saturday Night Live” aired a sketch called “Lazy Sunday” where two nerds rap about “The Chronicles of Narnia.” Only Andy was the dreamiest rapping nerd I had ever seen. With that Jew-fro and that sense of humor, he is certainly a contendah for my fave nerd eva! Word!
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that blonde, blue-eyed beauty Cate Blanchett went through a goth phase. Really? I mean, I went through one, too, but I never would have expected that from prim and proper Cate. When asked in an interview about how her beauty regime has changed over time, Blanchett admitted, “I’d go to bed with my makeup on if I’d been out. And I went through a big gothic phase, so my pillow was always covered in black mascara and white pancake makeup.” Never would have guessed.
After the jump, some more unexpected celebrity phases.

But Daniel’s not the only celeb who’s into getting nude for roles. After the jump, some more celebs who loved flaunting their birthday suits. Hey, if the part calls for it … why not?
We’ve all had a giggle fit at an inappropriate moment before, but sometimes it’s just dead wrong. I’m totally miffed by this video of a news anchor seriously losing her s**t as she reports on the case of Stephen Grant, a 37-year-old Michigan man who was convicted of murdering his wife, Tara Lynn Grant. But this is not your run-of-the-mill murder case. It’s completely psychotic. Grant dismembered his wife, chopped up her body, and deposited her bits and pieces in a nearby park. After maintaining his innocence for a while, Grant went on the lam and was finally captured with a Charles Manson-esque look in the eyes, in Michigan’s snowy Wilderness State Park. He was rushed to a hospital with frostbite and hypothermia, but once he was released, he made a graphic confession and was arraigned on Tuesday. OK, I am totally creeped out. Can anyone tell me why this news anchor can’t stop laughing? What am I missing? Did someone fart? I’m sure Tara Lynn Grant’s family loved this clip. [Fox News, Funny or Die] Keep reading »
