Move over, Monica Lewinsky, there’s a new scandalous teen intern in town. Okay, so Mimi Alford’s alleged affair with a president — John F. Kennedy — occured more than 40 years ago, but that doesn’t make it any less salacious. According to her new memoir, Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath, Alford, now 69, had an affair with the president when she was just 18. She claims just four days into her Press Office internship, she was invited to go for a swim in the White House pool. With the president.* And that’s when the notorious womanizer pounced.

Dream On: 14 Unbelievable Onscreen Couples

Call it the “Knocked Up” syndrome — when an attractive actress is romantically paired onscreen with a guy she’d never give a second thought to — but Hollywood has made quite a habit of casting unrealistic and unbelievable romantic pairs. Even before Seth Rogen made a baby with Katherine Heigl, stars like Woody Allen and Chevy Chase were casting themselves opposite knockout leading ladies. (Chase famously admitted that he wanted Beverly D’Angelo cast as his wife in the “National Lampoon”‘s series because she was so pretty.) And guys aren’t the only ones guilty of this (cough, Queen Latifah, cough).

Check out our list of wildly mismatched onscreen couples we just can’t believe.

Gap Launches New GapPure — But Will It Sell?

Gap is no longer the top of the mall fashion heap — but they’re hoping the launch of GapPure might help take up some of the slack they’ve lost. Seen as the natural extension of their GapBody line of underwear and yoga gear, GapPure consists of free-flowing slouchy separates — jersey-soft Ts and knits — meant to be your go-to weekend wear. How many times can Gap re-work the basic T-shirt, you ask? If GapPure is any indication, well, a lot.

But, at a price range of $24 to $68, will anybody buy? Can GapPure compete with the myriad loose-fitting Ts and tanks now available at the H&Ms, Uniqlos and American Apparels of the world — many of which cost half that?

Gap’s been floundering since creative director Patrick Robinson was fired in May 2011, and even before that, when their standard khakis and Ts seemed to have lost touch with a consumer now swimming in retail options. Will more low-end, no-risk apparel do the trick for the ailing company? [Fashionista]

Well, it’s pretty clear The Los Angeles Times magazine thinks it’s got the Best Actress thing on lock. And no wonder — look how amazing “The Help”‘s Viola Davis looks on the cover of their magazine. Inside, Davis elucidates the key to her acting skill — a tip gleaned from playwright David Mamet: “If you’re looking at an actor onstage with a cat, who are you going to look at, the actor or the cat? The cat, because the cat is just being a cat.” [ONTD]

Prada Goes For Gas Station Chic

This new promo video for Prada’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection is intended to show off the line’s newest glamorous designs. But the gas station setting makes me think of only one thing — the hilarious gas station gasoline fight in “Zoolander.” Probably not what Prada was going for … [YouTube]

Ugh, Die Antwoord. The South African band-cum-performance-art-project just bugs the crap out of me. It’s kind of “Gummo” for the 2010s, isn’t it? The way they mug around with stupid haircuts trying to be transgressive and weird. Well, tiny little Yolandi Visser and her partner in crime, Ninja, have just been tapped as the new faces of Alexander Wang. We should have seen this coming: their new video, “I Fink U Freeky” (don’t watch if you are at all rat or bug squeamish, trust), features the duo in Wang jumpsuits. [Pedestrian.Tv]
