  • Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have split after six months, renewing our faith again that there is a God and he does want Amelia to be with her one true love. Ryan supposedly precipitated the break, telling friends he needed “time to think.” Naturally this means he flew to Cape Town, South Africa by himself and went out with a blonde German model.

Stylist-to-the-stars June Ambrose debuts her new reality show, “Styled By June,” on VH1 on March 19,  and she seems considerably less awful than Rachel Zoe. In the past, she’s styled muckety-mucks like Jay-Z, but I’m not sure why we’re supposed to care about her “star clients” Mischa Barton, Da Brat, Shanna Moakler, and  Jaleel White (aka Urkel). Rachel Zoe had A-listers like Anne Hathaway and Demi Moore on her show, just saying. But at least, unlike Rachel, who just hammers that boho-chic thing over and over and over again, June Ambrose is super-quirky. She wears both a bowler hat and a top hat in this one trailer.

It’s probably basically the same show, though. Whatever, I’ll watch this. [Essence]

I would never speak ill of Dita Von Teese. Ever. However, I cannot endorse the dress that the burlesque performer wore in Australia when she launched her Von Follies lingerie line at Target. (It’s only Down Under. Booooo.) It looks like Dita’s lacy bra is trying to escape out of her J.Lo-cut dress on purpose! If your name is anything other than “Dita Von Teese,” how can you possibly wear a dress like this without constantly being stopped by well-meaning folks telling you they can see your bro? I’m more pro-Wearing Lingerie As Outerwear than some other ladies on The Frisky staff, but the escaping bra is a confusing look.

But other than that … rock on, Dita.

  • Don Draper might not have such discriminating taste, but Jon Hamm does. In April’s issue of Elle UK, he says “stupidity is celebrated” with Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian and “being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” I’m not thrilled he only named ladies here — cough The Situation cough — but his sentiment is nevertheless swoonworthy.  [Daily Mail UK]

Today’s Lady News: GA Lawmaker Compares Women To Cows & Pigs

  • A Republican state representative compared women to livestock earlier this week, while he spoke in favor of criminalizing abortion after 20 weeks. Speaking to the restriction on abortion even when the fetus isn’t expected to live, Terry England said, “I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive — delivering pigs, dead and alive. It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.” Yes, your reproductive health care was just compared to that of a barnyard animal.  [Raw Story]
