Not that I really care either way, but let’s say that Zooey Deschanel did get some kind of nose job, she’ll probably blame it on her deviated septum. It is the Hollywood way. Whenever a celeb gets a nose job, but doesn’t want to admit to have working done for the sake of having work done, this seems to be the reason. Yes, this is a legitimate medical condition. It basically means that the bottom, middle cartilage part of your nose (proper name: septum) is off-center, causing your nostrils to be different sizes.
My septum is deviated. Actually, yours probably is too. Stats say that about 80 percent of the population have deviated septums. It’s usually not serious. And if you have one, life will go on without you ever noticing it except maybe when you have a cold. In more extreme cases, it can inhibit breathing, cause frequent nosebleeds or chronic sinusitis. But mostly, it’s serves as a thinly veiled excuse to get a rhinoplasty. Click through to see all of famous peeps who attributed their nose jobs to deviated septums.

Today I saw Alex McCord (from “The Real Housewives of New York City”) and her husband Simon downstairs at the deli. Alex and I both were getting tacos so I took the opportunity to discreetly express my disappointment that she was no longer on RHONY. She said she doesn’t miss it. Just thought you should know. Let’s see what we’re wearing today!
We slather on tons of lotions and potions in order to get our skin glowing and gorgeous — and apparently women have been doing this since the beginning of time. Just ask Cleopatra’s eyeliner applier. But in the 1950s and ’60s, beauty treatments took a strangely Draconian turn. Our friends at Collectors Weekly dug up some of the most bizarre beauty devices from the era. We want to see if you can guess what women might have used them for. Take our quiz above!
So, the other day, this “cucumber sub” popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the “perfect low carb sandwich” and it made me, like, raging mad. My inner monologue went something like this (in Chris Rock’s voice): “That ain’t no motherfuckin’ sandwich!” I sent the link to Amelia who immediately shared my anger and responded with, “COME THE FUCK ON.” Soon Ami chimed in that she had similar food rage issues with Kraft Singles, and an Angry Foods slideshow was born.
