Little Shop Of Helen

Dame Helen Mirren is a very accomplished lady. In addition to the many parts she’s played, we can now add the role of “carnivorous plant” to her resume. This week, Helen unveiled her new namesake plant, the “Helen,” at London’s Chelsea Flower Show. The “Helen,” born and bred in Sri Lanka, is a rare hybrid from the genus Nepenthes, a breed of carnivorous plants known “tropical pitcher plants” because monkeys often drink rain water out of them. It’s all so very “Little Shop of Horrors.” Let’s hope the “Helen” doesn’t have a thirst for human blood. Bwah ha ha ha! [This Is London UK] Keep reading »

The Dating Cycle Explained

It is difficult to break free from the vicious dating cycle, which is so perfectly summed up in this diagram. Like hamsters on wheels, we keep going in the hope that at some point someone wonderful will come along. Then we can break the cycle … hopefully forever. Until then, we just keep running.

10 Changes “The Bachelor” Franchise Needs To Make If They Want Us To Take Them Seriously

Am I really about to get involved in the latest season of “The Bachelorette” with Ashley Hebert, a girl who in my estimation, is not really ready to settle down? I say this because at the end of last season, when she and Brad Womack were getting down to brass tacks, she hadn’t even considered the idea she may have to move to another state to be with him. Red flag that she may not be ready for marriage. The show, while highly entertaining, has lost all credibility. Trista and Ryan Stutter’s love was a fluke that producers have been fruitlessly trying to replicate since season one. I suppose Jason Mesnick and Molly Melaney are still going strong as well, but not without their fair share of scandal. Brad Womack and Emily Maynard are already over (well at least I think they are). I can’t say I’m the least bit surprised. It’s gotten to the point where you expect every “Bachelor” couple to fail. The show has become more about bikinis and less about betrothal. “The Bachelor” franchise needs to make a few changes if they want us to start taking them seriously agin. After the jump, a few suggestions. Keep reading »

Chyna Phillips Wrote “Hold On” To Keep Herself From Becoming A Hollywood Statistic

“When I wrote ‘Hold On,’ I was 19 years old and was really at a crossroads in my life … I knew that if I didn’t make some really significant changes in my life, I’d end up being another Hollywood statistic. So those words – ‘hold on for one more day’ – were literally what kept me going because if I had to look at everything at once, I don’t think I would have been able to do it. But if I said, ‘just for today, I’m going to see my therapist. Just for today I’m going to not smoke a cigarette. Just for today I’m not going to hang out with that crowd,’ then I was able to handle it. I never imagined writing down words that were meant to help me, would help so many people along the way and become this iconic song.”

—Chyna Phillips on her 1990 hit “Hold On,” which is having a serious comeback thanks to the pivotal role it plays in “Bridesmaids.” Just in case you’re wondering, I have the tune on my iPod and I still find it inspirational, even if it is a tad bit cheesy. Sometimes you just need to be reminded to take it one day at a time. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Get Your Fortune Told By Miranda July

In honor of her upcoming film, “The Future” (which I predict I will love based on the trailer), Miranda July has created an interactive web oracle wherein she divines your future via a colorful spinning wheel. While she understands that we may be super skeptical of this new form of divination, she encourages us to remember that every form of fortune telling, including Tarot and astrology, even the Magic 8 Ball, had to start somewhere. I am always a sucker for a prediction, so I took a deep breath and clicked the spinning wheel’s button as instructed. It said something about me figuring out if I was oily like a rat. Hmmm. No, I don’t think so. Maybe this means I will wash my hair today? Yes, I believe a good shampooing is in my future. Wow! She’s amazing! I’ve opted to subscribe to her personalized divinations, which will now be sent directly to my inbox every Monday and Thursday. [The Future] Keep reading »

One Big, Happy Illegitimate Family

Say cheese! Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger took great joy in getting the entire family together for photo ops — the wife, the kids, the mistress, and the love child. That takes some giant balls right there. I’m wondering if Maria Shriver found this at all strange? Awkward family photo, indeed. [TMZ] Keep reading »
