A British Company Tries To Ban High Heels For “Health” Reasons

One company across the pond is trying to pass a new policy that bans something sexist, dangerous and hazardous to women’s health: high heels. Oh yes, while most people think the British Trade Union Congress should be dealing with labor policies, the mostly male organization is currently tackling Christian Louboutins. They are drafting a ban on heels over one-inch tall. Keep reading »

No More Searching By Relationship Status On Facebook

Ever logged into Facebook and gotten excited about a new friend request, only to be greeted by a pervy stranger who is coincidentally also single? Well, those days are behind us ’cause Facebook has removed the option to search members by their relationship status. This is great news for those of us who want to use the site to meet … people we already know. But for those of you who looking to score a date (or whatever), Facebook isn’t leaving you too high and dry—there are still several Facebook dating apps that can help you sort through hotties. I am just so glad to see a social networking site listening to its members. I guess they finally learned a thing or two from Craigslist. [All Facebook] Keep reading »

Quickies!: Susan Boyle Likes Being “Short And Plump”!

  • Susan Boyle gets glam in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The singer comments on her fast rise to fame, but says she is not getting Botox and is fine with the way she looks – “short and plump.” [Us Weekly] – Thank you Susan for not giving into the superficial pressure of Hollywood! You rock.
  • Dr. Bailey, aka Chandra Wilson, will soon be pulling a double shift – Bailey will appear at Seattle Grace on “Grey’s Anatomy” and head over to Oceanside Wellness in the new season of “Private Practice.” Chandra will also direct her first “Grey’s” episode this fall season. [Entertainment Weekly] – Girl knows how to multitask!
  • Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is happy to be an outsider. At least that’s what she told People in an interview about her new “Melrose Place” character Ella, a girl “desperate for love.” Ashlee didn’t reveal too much, but spilled the show is packed with “jaw-dropping” moments. [People] – Hmm, I’m not sure how I feel about Ashlee playing a young teenager; she’s married and has a baby.

Sharon Osbourne’s Secret To Success: Be Ugly

I’ve always liked Sharon Osbourne. She looks like a woman who can hold her own—managing the career of her bat-biting rocker husband, caring for three rebellious children in the public eye, and not letting reality TV totally ruin her family. Sharon recently revealed that the fierce personality and hard work ethic that has brought her so far all came from … being ugly. Yes, in the new issue of Psychologies magazine Sharon says that her life would’ve been very different if she hadn’t been born fugly.

First off, I’m not sure I agree with Sharon’s diagnosis of her appearance. But even more than that, I’ve got some beef with Sharon’s beauty bomb. Keep reading »

Gallery: Elle MacPherson Supposedly Sucks In “Beautiful Life.” Duh. She’s A Model.

It’s not such a “Beautiful Life” right now for supermodel Elle MacPherson. It seemed like a no-brainer casting Elle as “Claudia,” an aging-model-turned-owner of the fictitious Focus Models Agency. But now the show’s producers are worried. Why? Because while Elle looks the part, she lacks acting chops. So much so that the show’s producers, including Ashton Kutcher, are supposedly scrambling to hire acting coaches to work with her and a few other models who aren’t nailing their parts. And they don’t have long to mess around—the show’s premiere is on September 16. Oddly enough, the one person producers don’t have to worry about, according to the Daily News, is Mischa Barton. Even fresh from her mega meltdown, the show’s execs are thrilled with her performance when compared to the others. [NY Daily News]

We’ll have to wait until next month to see if Elle can learn to act like a model. The results will no doubt be hilarious. Until then, here are some clips of other models who should leave their acting dreams on the runway.

Jessica Simpson Predicts Her Breakup In Glamour Interview

She should have knocked on wood. Jessica Simpson is on the cover of the September issue of Glamour, looking happy and chic. But, natch, the interview and photo shoot happened before Tony Romo told her that he didn’t want to be her Ken doll. So it’s interesting that, in the story, Jessica makes an odd psychic prediction about her life sans Romo:

“If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love him, and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today.”

Check out her other musings, after the jump. [Glamour] Keep reading »
