Girl Talk: Going To Las Vegas For My 21st Birthday … With My Dad

When I was about 10 years old, my dad made me promise that—as soon as I turned 21—the two of us would go on a father/daughter trip to Las Vegas. The pact stipulated that it would be just him and me making our way to Sin City—it would not include any kind of boyfriend, or buddy, and certainly not my mother. At the time, 21 seemed like fiction to me. I was still figuring out multiplication tables and it was hard to think a decade ahead to a time when I would no longer be belabored by math and old enough to drink and gamble as well. But at the same time, even at 10, I understood my father was serious, and that a large amount of trust was being entwined in this promise. Keep reading »

10 Stars Whose Relationships Went South Once They Found Success

Tabloid magazines should have a mandatory pause in their work day to silently appreciate all the fodder the Kardashian sisters continue to create for them. The most recent story, which I’m sure we’ll all be seeing in big yellow letters soon, is that Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have broken up, again. Since Bush’s Super Bowl win, the couple has been caught up in a tide of rumors over possible marriage proposals and baby gossip, but it seems that all that conjecture can be put to rest. Bush has made it clear that the two will never make it down the aisle because Kardashian is “too ambitious.” The Saints superstar is supposedly looking for a woman to stay at home and keep things in line. Which leads me to wonder why he even dated poor Kim in the first place. After all, this is a girl determined to make a name for herself between the show, exercise tapes, diet program, cupcakes, fragrance, clothing, and skin care line. Kudos to Kim for not sacrificing her success in exchange for settling down. [Gawker]

It is unfortunate to see a successful young woman denied love just because she is out there getting things done. It is a breakup trend that is ever present in the dating world, and one that celebrities can get hit by, too. Take a look at some leading ladies who have had their relationships come to a not-so-nice halt just as their careers went on the rise.

Wizards Are So Hot That They Set Hogwarts on Fire

A pyrotechnic malfunction? Please. Something tells me that a rambunctious Twihard is behind this. Last Friday, the set of the infamous “Harry Potter” wizardry school, Hogwarts, caught fire. Rumors erupted in London tabloids that the whole set was completely destroyed and that precious Daniel Radcliffe was filming when the blaze started. Both of these “facts” are luckily false. None of the primary cast was on set at the time—they were filming one of the final scenes for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” where the students of Hogwarts band together to fight off the evil Voldemort—and the fire was quickly contained by the studio fire brigade. Somewhere in the elaborate process of making all the students’ wands alight, a firework went haywire. The damage is said to be minimal and shouldn’t cause too much of a disruption in filming. So you should probably start planning your midnight premiere costumes now, since you have less than a year until the Nov. 19 release of the first half of “Deathly Hallows.” Personally, I had a pretty wicked Hedwig costume for “Half Blood Prince” that I might need to break out again.

What Is Pedal Pumping And Why Is Michelle McGee Doing It?

So along with being a homewrecker, possible white supremacist, and Sandra Bullock‘s least favorite person in the world, Michelle McGee can add another title to her skanky and bizarre resume: pedal pumper. Sounds kinky, right? Keep reading »

What’s So Special About Being 17?

I just turned 21, and to me that is the climax of birthday celebrations. I am now legally allowed to do almost anything in the United States—except rent a car, for some reason. The landmarks and rites of passage of adolescence have all been crossed out and I am now in the bright, glaring headlights of adulthood. And that is scary. As I look back at the past 20 years, I remember all the major life events: Disney World, learning to ride a bike, first kiss, prom, high school spring break, welcome week of college. I have waved my arms above my head and gone “Woooooo!” through all of these essential life events, and now I am left with my hands in my pockets wondering what to do next. Like many people I find the best way to deal is to procrastinate, and one easy way to do this is to just dote on the past and obsess over what part of life I would like to go back to. For some reason, I keep going back to junior year of high school, when I was 17. And I don’t seem to be the only one. Keep reading »

Nerd Girl Porn: 10 Sexy NASCAR Drivers We Want To Take On A Ride

NASCAR isn’t my favorite. Basically, I think it’s a “sport” that consists of a bunch of cars making the same set of left-hand turns for about three hours and sometimes making each other explode. But what Will Ferrell’s “Talladega Nights” and the numerous redneck jokes don’t let you in on is that some of the drivers are smoking hot. Plus, between the bonanza of ads that cover the drivers’ cars and the huge cardboard checks that are handed out after races, these guys are loaded. A few forward-thinking glamazons have figured out the untapped fountain of foxiness that is NASCAR and you should, too. Here is a sampling of NASCAR’s sexiest, so maybe next time you will pay a little more attention when the race is on. Or maybe not. I can only ask for so much.

Do Co-Stars Who Get Steamy In Magazine Spreads Always End Up Together?

Tabloids have been salivating at the potential for a Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler romance since the two beautiful people started working together on their upcoming film, “The Bounty Hunter.” Yesterday, photos were released of the pair on this month’s W magazine cover. Gerard and Jennifer’s (Jenard’s?) backwards straddle is a little more than suggestive—it’s pretty much sex with clothes on. And it’s extra tantalizing considering that Brad and Angelina posed for an infamous W cover together in the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” days, before they went public with their romance.

Let’s take a look at other co-stars who’ve gotten cozy in a magazine cover shoot, and see whether they ended up together.

Loose Lips: Robert Pattinson Should Be Scaring Women Away With The Things He Says

Out of all the “Twilight” stars, Robert Pattinson seems to be the one who has been sucked the furthest into the fame vortex. Mr. Edward Cullen has become a subject of obsession for tabloids and Twihards across the globe. Pattinson hysteria has reached the point where his face is on a variety of strange products and the actor is being bombarded by fans and paparazzi to the point where he got hit by a car while fleeing from them. As a counter strike to all this deep-seated infatuation, Pattinson seems to take any chance he can to say something so stupid or bizarre that it should send women running the other way. But because Pattinson is some strange aphrodisiac, the ladies won’t leave, no matter what he says. In a recent appearance on “The View,” Pattinson was asked about dating an older women. He replied, “I think Betty White is probably one of the sexiest women in America … She’s vibrant; it’s sexy. I think the more age the better.”

Great for Betty White—a bummer for those of us not carrying an AARP card. Keep on reading for some other off-kilter Rob quotes. Keep reading »
