Usher Delivers A Hit With “OMG”

Stay Hydrated With A Stylish Water Pitcher

Actor Simon Baker moved over the weekend, and besides his sexy, spec-wearing face, we couldn’t help but notice how stylishly he stayed hydrated. Instead of wasteful (and potentially harmful) plastic water bottles, he sipped on tap water, flavored with slices of lemon, from a pitcher. Now we can’t wait til the next time we entertai…

“Fly Girls” Introduces Us To A New Acronym: IFB

Fly Girls,” the new CW reality show that follows a group of flight attendants, premiered last night, and boy was it a doozy. “The Hills” and “Real Houswives” feel scripted, but this show takes “reality” to another level of fake.
