I want to hate this costume because it doesn’t represent the ’90′s riot grrl scene at all (think: underground feminist punk like Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Bratmobile). But I’d much rather have my little niece go as a botched riot grrl for Halloween than Noah Cyrus‘ sexy witch with dominatrix boots get-up! [HalloweenCostumes4U] Keep reading »
Our photo service, Splash News, says this is a photo of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes shopping for Halloween costumes. Since we don’t see any costumes in this pic, we’re wondering what little Suri is going to be for Halloween:
- Baby Maverick from “Top Gun”?
- A princess? (She’s got the outfits for it!)
- Baby “Risky Business”?
- Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?

Poor Meg Ryan
. Her last big role was as a jilted wife in “The Women,” a role she’s reprising in the horrifically dumb-looking “Serious Moonlight.” When she learns her hubby (played by Timothy Hutton) is ditching her for a younger woman (played by Kristen Bell
), Ryan snaps and … duct tapes him to a chair so she can “seduce” him. Sounds like a lighter version of Stephen King’s “Misery,” which was pretty creepy. Domestic violence
-infused plot aside, the “Serious Moonlight” trailer loses us when Hutton’s character blames his wife for straying and says: “You haven’t needed me for years! You make more money than I do, you can fix anything, you can bench-press more than me.” Yeah, because you know those self-sufficient career women—they’re awful!
We know “Serious Moonlight” is supposed to be a WACKY comedy and all, but girlfriend needs to get herself some dignity both on screen and off. Come on, Meg Ryan, you can do better! Keep reading »
On paper, the new movie “Precious” doesn’t sound like much fun: It’s the story of a 350-pound, illiterate black
teenager impregnated for the second time by her dad and physically and verbally abused by her mom. It’s enough to send a girl galloping into the next showing of lighter fare like “Couples Retreat”! But the film industry buzz for “Precious”—from the illustrious Cannes Film Festival to this week’s cover of The New York Times Magazine
— says the film is not
to be missed. There’s even buzz about an Oscar for Mo’Nique
, who stars as Precious’ monstrous mother, as well as accolades for the rest of the cast, including Mariah Carey
, Paula Patton, Gabby Sidibe
, and Lenny Kravitz
. Keep reading »
Despite valiant human rights work on behalf of Angelina Jolie to make “the other woman” not look like a big ol’ skank, the truth is most people still think “the other woman” is … well, a big ol’ skank. And guess what, ladies?! There’s this awesome double standard where people shrug their shoulders at Mr. Married But Couldn’t Keep His Pants Zipped and say, “Boys will be boys,” while they give you the stink-eye, you home-wreckin’ ho! So you have your work cut out for you! Unfortunately, instead of hopping a cheap-o flight out of town to wash that man right out of her hair, some “other women” go a little bonkers when the man doesn’t ditch his wife.

Behold 9-year-old Noah Cyrus! Far be it from us to slut-shame a fourth grader, but would it kill ol’ Billy Ray and Tish to insist she be a little girl for just a while longer? It’s not too hard to say, “No, you’re not dressing as a sexy witch with dominatrix boots for Halloween!” Because God knows after pole-dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley‘s childhood is a lost cause.

How cute is Michelle Obama? She hobnobs with the Queen and the Pope, but via satellite on “The Jay Leno Show” this past Friday night, she owned up to being nervous appearing on live TV. (We think she did fine!) The First Lady plugged a support-the-troops PSA she filmed with Jill Biden and stuck around to impress the nation with her expert “Brady Bunch” knowledge. After the jump, Michelle dishes about first puppy Bo‘s fancy-pants first birthday party

Anne Hathaway‘s brother, Michael, is totes adorable. Too bad he’s gay! (And married to his partner!) This genetically blessed brother and sister made a splash together at the 18th Annual Empire State Pride Agenda Fall Dinner, an event to raise money for gay rights. [NYC, 10/2309] Keep reading »
