Poor Amelia is still stuck without power or internet, so I feel like it’s my duty to pick up the slack on the cute celebrity baby beat til she’s back online. So, to fulfill our quota for the day, here’s a picture of Rachel Zoe’s big, serious baby Skylar Berman toddling around Kitson Kids. Just look at those little slip-on sneakers! Too freakin’ cute.

Once upon a time, a man in northern China named Jian Feng married the girl of his dreams, and soon his beautiful wife gave birth to a baby girl. And that’s where this fairytale ends, because Feng took one look at his newborn daughter and declared that she was extraordinarily ugly. Since Feng believed that his ridiculously good-looking DNA could never have contributed to a less-than-lovely child, he accused his wife of cheating on him. Now here’s where the story goes from depressing to crazy: Feng’s wife hadn’t cheated on him, but she had concealed another soap opera-worthy secret. Apparently before she met her would-be husband, she had undergone $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to alter her appearance. Feng was so enraged with this turn of events that he filed for divorce and sued her for the equivalent of $120,000 for convincing him to marry her under false pretenses. And here’s where the story goes from crazy back to depressing: Feng won the case.

It seems like every day another Republican politician is bloviating about the definition of rape as if he, a middle-aged man, is the true authority on the subject. As Tina Fey said so perfectly in her speech at the Center for Reproductive Rights, “If I have to listen to one more grey-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, I’m going to lose my mind.” I mean, we currently live in a culture where a chart is required to keep track of which male politicians claim rape cannot cause pregnancy and which ones believe it is simply part of God’s comprehensive plan to inflict devastating sexual violence on women and populate the earth with the fruits of their rapists’ loins.
Instead of patiently explaining to these men why they have no reason, no right, and no qualifications to mansplain these serious issues to me, I’m going to take a page from their playbook and blindly, confidently, and erroneously explain a few things to them. Because obviously, as a 27-year-old woman, I am an expert on the following things… Keep reading »
As hard as I tried to write something original about this outfit Gwen Stefani wore to the Vogue CFDA Fashion Fund show, I finally realized that like so many situations in life, it’s best summed up by a “Seinfeld” quote: “So we got an attractive woman, wearing a bra, no top, walkin’ around in broad daylight? She’s flouting society’s conventions!” No word yet on how many car accidents she caused. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

If you’re planning to hole up in your apartment this weekend to seek shelter from the SNOWICANE, well, there’s no better time to put on a favorite movie and do some DIY beauty treatments. I’m pretty excited to try this chocolate facial, partly because it’s packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients like cocoa, honey, and coconut oil, but mostly because it’s totally lickable.
