Babies these days. They’re so different from when I was one. Moons ago, when I was a drooling, waddling blob of cuteness, if you handed me a magazine, well, truth be told, I probably would have tried to eat it. Today’s babies? They don’t eat magazines. They just think of them as nothing more than broken iPads.
Check out this video of an adorable baby trying to use a magazine like an iPad. Welcome to the future, my friends. Read more…
The tabloids have been rife with rumors of Ashton Kutcher having an affair with a younger woman — maybe two. According to reports, Kutcher partied his booty off at a San Diego tech convention, getting down and dirty with two women, the weekend he and wife Demi Moore celebrated (or perhaps didn’tcelebrate) their sixth wedding anniversary.
So far Demi and Ashton haven’t commented, but if the rumors are true, none of us are probably terribly surprised. After all, celebrity marriages crumble all the time. But what does surprise me — though of course it shouldn’t — is the way the media is portraying a possible split as inevitable because Moore is older than Kutcher. She is 48. He is 33. And one of the women Kutcher supposedly cheated with is 23. Read more…
I love a trippy psychological thriller full of raw talent even more than I like mint chip ice cream on a hot September day, and that’s saying a lot. And in this regard, the upcoming film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” looks right up my alley. I’m ready to gobble it down.
The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister to the Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she looks to be pretty mesmerizing is this role. Olsen plays Martha, and the film follows Martha’s schizophrenic narrative between past and present — past being the time she recently spent living on a farm in an abusive cult and present immediately following her escape from the brutal cult, living with her sister and brother-in-law, who know nothing of her time with the cult, and trying to reconnect in normalcy and come to terms with the terrifying things that happened to her on the farm.

I’ve dealt with an annoying neighbor or two in my day. Know how I handled it? I quietly resented them from inside my apartment until their atrocious habits became so unbearable, I was eventually forced to move out of my sun-drenched abode. The healthy way. So, I’m kind of in awe of the guy who was so fed up with his neighbor, he advertised an orgy at his house on Craigslist. Genius! Terrible!
Forty-four-year-old Philip Conran couldn’t take his neighbor’s antics anymore. So he advertised, for all the Internet to see, a massive sex party at said neighbor’s house. And people showed up! One dude apparently even went to the wrong home, groped a teenage girl, and was arrested. Not cool.
But now Conran’s paying for it. He’s been sentenced to three years of probation and 200 hours of community service. And he also has been ordered to pay for the neighbor’s house alarm system. Is anyone else dying to know what this neighbor did? Read more… Keep reading »
Ever since he seemed to string ex-gf Jessica Simpson along, I’ve thought Dallas Cowboys player Tony Romo was kind of a schmoe. But now that’s all water under the bridge, and he’s happily married to Candice Crawford. I guess there are a handful of people out there (in Texas, most likely) who are really intrigued by his relationship with his now-wife, because he recently spilled to local Dallas news about the proposal. He admitted he was “a little nervous,” but then, “You see her start to cry, and you know you made a great decision.”
Hmmm. Let me get this straight: He thinks the fact that she bawled when he said, “Will you marry me?” means he was wise to propose? Huh?? I don’t see how the two add up.
Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against women who end up crying when their guy (or gal) gets down on one knee. Read more… Keep reading »
This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I’m loving it.
It’s a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town — and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer. Love it!
My favorite secret is the one about highlighting the cupid’s bow of your lip with a cream base. I would probably use a bit of undereye concealer there, which would be just a tiny bit lighter than your normal skin tone. Read more… Keep reading »
In Norwalk, Ohio, Chrissy Houtz had a stranger take a picture of her while she was nursing her newborn son at the city pool, and they passed it around like a “wanted poster.” She was harassed and told to stop, but after speaking with Ken Leber, the Norwalk Parks and Recreation Superintendent, who promised to retrain employees to uphold Ohio state law which protects her rights, she thought she could go back to the pool and nurse in peace.
She was wrong.
Again, Houtz breastfed her now 1-year-old son Moses at the pool and, again, was harassed. Several families apparently complained, saying it was “disgusting.” Funny enough, Ohio law not only allows breastfeeding wherever the mom is allowed with the baby, but they’ve got a law which you would think would make this topic totally moot.
They allow women to be topless anywhere men can be. Read more… Keep reading »
And so it begins, the frenzied media wars to get the first Casey Anthony television interview. The race to get Casey’s story is so brutal, in fact, that it involves lies, shady deals, cover-ups, and loads of speculation. But Casey’s totally used to all that.
One freelance TV producer Al Taylor already claimed he made a $1 million deal for the first interview. However, Jose Baez, Anthony’s lawyer, denied this claim — from his, eh em, NBC-funded hotel room in NYC, where he’s said to be holed up playing negotiator in the battle of the big TV networks, including NBC, ABC, and CBS, who all want that first interview.
Yep, all your favorite networks are competing to make Casey Anthony rich. While networks say they don’t pay for interviews, there is apparently a heap of money in offering to license photos and other material that can pay big bucks. Gross, right? This whole American way of making undeserved people rich in America is so disgusting, but it’s no one’s fault but our own. Read more… Keep reading »
Labor already has a terrible reputation, so when Miranda Kerr said her natural, drug-free birth was so painful, she thought she was going to die, most people probably were not terribly surprised. And while I am sure it was intense (because duh), it does not do women any good to hear all the time how awful labor is.
It is not just to spare pregnant women, either. Our culture as a whole seems to have this idea that labor has to be terrible. We all have to curse and yell and scream and cry and eventually, even those of us who prepared for and planned a drug-free birth, will beg for the epidural.
It is simply not true. Now, I am well aware that I had textbook simple pregnancies and extremely easy labors, which makes me unable to comment on medical intervention. Certainly, when it is needed, it is wonderful. The point is, it is not always needed. And labor is not always a screaming mess of pain. Read more… Keep reading »
Oh Gwyneth Paltrow, you silly fishmongering crack-smoking goop. You so crazy! In case you haven’t heard Gwynnie’s latest advice on how to live a fabulous, toxin-free existence, Her Paltrowness recently announced that she’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t?
Personally, I love that Gwyneth said she prefers crack to Cheez Whiz. Everybody’s pointing to this latest comment as further proof of Paltrow’s warped sense of reality, one where even mere commoners such as ourselves have access to kiddie couturiers and private macrobiotic chefs, but I disagree!
