Kellie Pickler Shaves Her Head To Support A Friend Undergoing Chemotherapy

Country star Kellie Pickler (right) shaved off her signature bright blond hair yesterday to show support for her childhood friend Summer Holt Miller, a 36-year-old mother of two who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will begin chemotherapy this week. The two women appeared on “Good Morning America” this morning to discuss Pickler’s buzzed locks and raise breast cancer awareness. “If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it,” said Miller. What a brave and beautiful display of friendship. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

“Nobody wants to talk about their weight. For me, I have had to come to a place where I am comfortable with myself. I’m a mom now, and get to be a role model for this beautiful little girl … I feel like everybody can do what I am doing. I’m not a supermodel. My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancĂ© and herself.”

Jessica Simpson, pop star, entrepreneur, and new mom to baby Maxwell, responds to USA Today‘s questions about losing her very famous baby weight. Now, don’t get me wrong, the article also contains the usual stats about her Weight Watchers points allotments, and I know she’s being paid ungodly sums of money to lose the weight, but still, I thought this quote was actually really thoughtful and inspiring, even. As someone whose never-had-a-baby body looks a lot like Jessica’s post-baby body, I’ve been very interested to see how the media–and more importantly, Jessica herself–handles her weight loss process. I’d love to hear more about her journey to find a healthy weight under massive pressure, but with her “new body” being unveiled on Katie “Eat A Sandwich” Couric‘s show next week, I’m afraid my hopes aren’t terribly high for a positive and honest conversation about body image and self-esteem.

“I will admit that the day a bigger group of the cast did get together really was amazing. We were in an old set and hearing some of those voices together. I think everyone involved was kind of dumbstruck by it. It really wasn’t supposed to happen in a way; shows don’t ‘come back.’ And this was the moment we realized it had.”

Mitch Hurwitz, mastermind behind the Greatest Show In History, “Arrested Development,” describes the feeling on the set as the cast reunited to film 10 new episodes that will air exclusively on Netflix. While Hurwitz carefully sidesteps any spoilers (“We have this new JarJar Bluth character so there’s no way anyone will be disappointed”), there are a ton of other fascinating gems in his interview with Vulture, including details about Gob’s Segway and the beyond-exciting revelation that the the show might be coming back for more than 10 episodes. Be still, my Bluth-loving heart! [Vulture]

“You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you’re getting married — especially when it’s with someone they haven’t met yet! My mom is a huge fan of Avril’s, so putting her on the speaker phone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing.”

–Nickelback frontman/Canadian dreamboat Chad Kroeger reveals to Hello! Canada that his parents hadn’t met Avril Lavigne prior to the couple’s surprise engagement. Other revelations from the ChAvril cover story? Apparently Chad has yet to visit Avril’s hometown of Napanee, Ontario, but is excited to make the trip and eat at her favorite pizzeria, while Avril is busy planning the wedding, which will be “a huge celebration.” If that ridiculously large rock on her finger is any indication, this wedding will be visible from space.

Can We Talk About Guys In Tank Tops?

Dude Looks: Bold Socks
There's nothing sexier than a well-chosen sock. Read More »

It’s officially September now, which means it’s time to reflect on how we spent the dog days of summer. Did you have a good summer? Did you make boozy popsicles? Did you smile broadly while wearing a sunhat the size of a Mini Cooper? If so, good work! Want to know what I did this summer? I saw a lot of men wearing tank tops and I had complicated feelings about it.

Seriously though, I think 2012 will go down in history as the Summer Of Men’s Tank Tops (SOMTT for short). I mean, men have always worn tank tops, but this year the trend really caught on, and suddenly sleeveless shirts became a totally legitimate clothing option for regular dudes, not just mega hipsters and Nickelback fans… Keep reading »

This photo reminds me of some kind of “Count the trends!” game you might find in a fashion-themed issue of Highlights magazine. I’ve counted nine so far: bralette, geometric necklace, tribal prints, mixed prints, peplum, layers, mini skirt, pencil skirt, sheer fabric. Am I missing any? Also how in the world could you ever wear this in real life? [Sheer Pencil Skirt with Printed Peplum: $37, ASOS]

Take A Tour Of Gloria Steinem’s Fabulous NYC Apartment

You won't believe how much she paid for it!

As Gloria Steinem walks Oprah through the beautiful and elaborately decorated NYC apartment she’s lived in since 1966, it’s hard to imagine that until recently, she treated it as a temporary home. “For years and years and years I lived out of cardboard boxes,” says Steinem. “I was brought up to think you didn’t make a home [without] husband and children–you didn’t make it for yourself.” We’re glad she finally settled in, because it’s fascinating to get a glimpse into Steinem’s home life, from the travel mementos and feminist artwork to the living room where she launched Ms. Magazine. The sprawling apartment is worth millions now, but you won’t believe how much she paid for it when she and five of her single pals bought it in the late 80s (hint: it was less than a quarter of the price of Avril Lavigne’s wedding ring). Yep, time to cry. [Refinery 29]

If you’re anything like us, your wine-drinking skills probably merit a trophy or two (examples: Most Improved Pallet and Best Balancing of Wine Glass On The Edge Of The Bathtub), so why not give yourself that trophy you deserve, in the form of a quirky DIY wine cork? If you still have your t-ball participation trophies floating around the attic, great, but if not, you’ll be able to find cheap (and delightfully flamboyant) trophies at your local thrift store for a buck or two. The only other supplies needed are a fresh cork and superglue. Oh, and some Merlot to sip while you get crafty. [Country Living]
