Project Runway: Welcome To The “Jungle” Of Teamwork

We’re Not In Love [From Left]: Kelli and Daniel’s Hussy Loves Dolce & Gabbana Ensemble; Blayne and Leanne’s I Heart Old Navy Look; Terri and Suede’s Boring Boho-Chic Outfit.

Last night on Project Runway the designers had to create a work outfit that could transition to night for Brooke Shields’s character on Lipstick Jungle. Besides receiving immunity for the next challenge, the winning designer would also have the ultimate prize of Shields wearing the outfit during season two of Lipstick Jungle. They had 30 minutes to sketch and then Shields picked six designers from the remaining 12 to head up a team of two. Keep reading »

Doc Gets Slap On The Wrist For Unauthorized Sterilization

Last year, Dr. Shirolyn Ruth Moffett delivered a baby by Cesarean to a woman in Berryville, Arkansas. I know you’re probably thinking, “Big whoop!” But the shocker is that Dr. Moffett decided to perform a tubal ligation at the same time without the woman’s permission. Dr. Moffett claims she feared the woman’s uterus would burst if she became pregnant again. Not only did the doctor not have authorization, but she didn’t tell the woman after the procedure and made no notation in the woman’s medical chart. Officials at St. John’s hospital, where the procedure took place, stopped Dr. Moffett from seeing any patients after they became aware of the situation. But regulators at the Arkansas State Medical Board feel a reprimand is more appropriate for the offense and voted last week to allow Dr. Moffett to keep her medical license. “I know now that [it] was a mistake,” she told the Medical Board. “I had not made this kind of error my whole medical career. I was appalled.” Officials at St. John’s issued a release expressing surprise at the Medical Board’s decision. And I have to say I’m equally as appalled. I would think performing a tubal ligation without permission would be enough cause for revoking a medical license, but the fact that Dr. Moffett tried to keep it a secret makes the situation that much worst.

    Five “Philias” That Freak Us Out & Five That Don’t Sound So Bad

    I once dated someone that had a thing for pretty feet. It didn’t really bother me because he usually only admired my feet. But sometimes, especially in the summer, he would introduce me to someone and ask, “Doesn’t she have pretty feet?” This would freak me out because beauty is subjective and I didn’t want so-and-so thinking, “Uh, not really.” So today, I came across this really funny diagram of sexual fetishes and started thinking about the ones that aren’t too bad and the ones that would totally freak me out.

    Crave: Klein Canvas Tool Bag

    OK, so call us crazy, but this tool bag would make the chicest handbag because it has the same classic shape as some high-end purses, it’s just more unexpected. Made of rugged, durable canvas and moisture-resistant vinyl, this tool bag would make the perfect everyday purse because its natural and cognac colors go with pretty much everything. Although we’d caution against loading it up with non-essentials, because the steel-framed opening will add weight. We’d feel so chic wearing this with a floral summer dress.

    Brooke Hogan, I’ve Got Some Advice For You

    Yesterday, Brooke Hogan continued her quest for attention by posting phony mugshots on her MySpace page. Not only is this kind of pathetic, but it’s also a little insensitive to her brother Nick, who is serving time in jail for a 2007 car crash that severely injured his friend. So I realized that it’s time to have a little chat with Brooke, since it seems her parents’ divorce has left her to guide her own career. Keep reading »
