Not many starlets would talk about pee on “The Tonight Show.” But then again, not many stars would ditch fake-baking in Hollywood for composting at an Oregon eco-village. Ellen Page dropped facts about composting — apparently if you build it right, it doesn’t smell! — and announced how she and her eco-village pals… READ MORE »

I thought the first half of this trailer for “K-Town” — the new reality show starring Asian-Americans who party-hard in L.A.’s Koreatown — must be a joke.

Sen. Vitter was on Rush Radio 99.5 in New Orleans… READ MORE »

Earlier this week marked the 50th anniversary of the classic novel To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. In the past half-century, Scout, Jem, Atticus and, of course, Boo Radley have charmed millions of readers (if not necessarily high school English classes) with their tale about coming of age, family, and racism in the South.

We spoke; MAC and Rodarte listened. After my post yesterday about the MAC/Rodarte makeup collaboration which I think tastelessly names new nail polishes “Juarez” and “Factory,” MAC has released a statement to NYMag.com’s fashion blog, The Cut: … READ MORE »

Italians, you won’t be the only ones stereotyped on the boob tube: “K-town,” a new “Jersey Shore”-style reality show randomly produced by male model Tyrese, starring party-hearty Asians, has begun filming in Los Angeles’ famed Koreatown. Months ago, “K-town” posted a casting notice on Craigslist for Asian-Americans “with lively, strong and unique personalities” who love… READ MORE »
