There was a time not so long ago when famous folk wanted to create the illusion that they were NOT “just like us.” Grace Kelly was never photographed buying jumbo packs of toilet paper! Audrey Hepburn describing where she was the day Aunt Flo first came to visit? HA! Nowadays many female stars, like Jennifer Love Hewitt, are eager to overshare about their private bodily business.
If only JLH had taken a cue from Audrey Hepburn (who she once played in TV movie), we wouldn’t have had to endure news of her vajazzling habits for the last two years. At this point, we’ll never forget that she’s responsible for the ridiculous trend, which involves encrusting one’s pubic area with crystals. But we really wish she would stop talking about it already. At last week’s Upfronts for “The Client List,” she told red carpet reporters that she was vajazzled for the special occasion: “I’m full of good energy [down there]” she told anyone who would listen. Ugh. Make it stop. From bikini waxing and colonics to anal bleaching, here are some other examples of crazy celeb TMI. [Celebitchy]
Are you dissatisfied with your eyebrows? Would you like to replace your measly sperm-shaped squiggles with, say, the lush, well-groomed brows of one Kim Kardashian? Well, now you can — there’s organ transplants, there’s hair transplants, and now I introduce to you eyebrow transplants. Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic in Redondo Beach, California, an expert in hair transplant and replacement surgery, (down by the ocean, it was so dismal…) developed an innovational procedure called “uGraft” that uses a patient’s leg or arm hair to fabricate a whole new eyebrow. Lest you suffer mental images of sliced-off skin and sewn-on strands, let me tell you how the good doctor goes about this: using no scalpel, stitches, or incisions, Dr. Umar practices a specialized “single follicle extraction and transfer” technique. Apparently, the most requested eyebrows belong to Kim K. Lovely eyebrows they are, but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to get this procedure any time soon, thanks. [The Stir]
We knew that pole dancing had gone mainstream when soccer moms started talking about it, and we all remember when Miley Cyrus took a stab at it during the 2009 Teen Choice Awards. Since then, pole dancing continues to seduce women by the truckload. The latest celebrity to express her love for the pole? Emma Watson, who has supposedly taken up pole dancing on the set of “The Bling Ring” to learn how to dance like a stripper. Even though she never thought she’d like it, a source tells the UK’s Sun newspaper that Emma is “amazed with the results because it has toned her body so well [and] finds it quite liberating.” Our little Hermione is growing up! Read on to hear why more stars love the pole. [The Sun UK]
Maybe you love Andy Samberg and co.’s weekly “Saturday Night Live” Digital Shorts. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you have gotta watch this clip if only to catch Jon Hamm thrusting his pelvis in Justin Bieber’s teenage face.
As if we needed any additional reasons to adore the extremely adorable Carey Mulligan, here’s one more: the starlet placed her Met Gala dress on eBay yesterday, with all the proceeds from the auction going to Oxfam America. The custom Prada dress (constructed of silver and gold metal paillettes, if you recall) began at the modest price of $500 and is currently at $1,050, but considering the listing doesn’t close until the 19th, there’s a good chance the bids are going to skyrocket. Of course, I don’t know how many people could actually fit into Carey’s teeny-tiny gown, but how amazing would it be to hang that shit up in your house? It’s almost as good as going to the Met Ball yourself. Almost. Pssst — Carey, I know you’re all about keeping your private life private and I respect that, but girl, we want to see your damn wedding dress! [Racked]
