We thought meggings were the only bottoms Russell Brand owned, but, fortunately, he also owns gym shorts. A man has to keep his physique tight if he’s going to wear tights as pants. [London, 11/13/09] Keep reading »
Egyptologist Zahi Hawass is known for his outbursts. He reportedly speaks in Arabic while attending dinner events and other social gatherings so he can insult non-Egyptians, who he assumes don’t understand his language. And well-known celebrities aren’t off-limits. Earlier this week, Beyonce toured the Giza pyramids with Hawass, who reportedly became annoyed with her attitude because she didn’t show the pyramids the respect he thinks they deserve.

Kate Moss recently told WWD that one of her mantras in life that has helped her achieve success is “nothing tastes as good as thin feels.” A totally weird and disturbing quote on its own, I’m slightly surprised the fashion daily (and the Huffington Post, which picked up the story) didn’t know or point out that the saying is also a motto expunged by pro-anorexia groups on the internet. Seriously, look here, here, and here. Considering Kate’s image has long served as “thinspiration” for girls suffering from eating disorders, it’s disturbing to hear her validating the mantra, especially since I can’t see how anyone actually could find it to be inspiring in a healthy way. And guess what? Plenty of things taste better than feeling thin. Like the burrito I am stuffing in my pie hole right now. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“No disrespect, but no Amber Rose for me. Everybody has their past. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not judgmental at all. But I do like a certain amount of class.”
–Omarion responds to rumors that he secretly married a bisexual stripper, like Kanye’s GF. But just so we’re clear, by “class” Omarion means “no” to bisexuality, but “yes” to pants sagged so low you can see his undies and butt crack.
It sure seems like extortion is the new black. Today’s target: Cindy Crawford and her family. No, no—don’t jump to any Letterman-like conclusions—Cindy didn’t do anything wrong at all. Over the summer, her nanny played a game of “cops and robbers” with her then 7-year-old daughter, Kaia, and took a photo of Kaia in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, gagged and tied to a chair. The nanny had intended to tape the photo, along with a note that read, “the baby sitter went crazy and tied everyone up and they need your help!” to the front door as a joke. (Um, would this be funny? Not so much.) But instead, Edis Kayalar (above, right), a German fellow she had met at a bar a few months before, found the photo and stole Cindy’s phone number off the nanny’s cell phone. He called her and said that he wanted to return the photo because the fact that the girl was “in revealing clothing, bound to a chair and gagged” supposedly “bothered” him because he was a “good person.” Keep reading »
- Now Fergie‘s mom is defending Josh Duhamel, saying, “My daughter’s life is amazing and Josh is a great guy — that story is [bs] as far as I’m concerned. It was totally ridiculous and absurd and I’m confident their marriage will weather the media storm.” [Starpulse] — Yeah, they just have to grin, hold hands, and bear it.

- Dina Lohan has instructed her lawyers to speak with the Nassau County District Attorney’s office because she believes ex-husband Michael violated a protective order when he taped their phone conversations. [Dlisted]
The “Oprah Winfrey Show” has released a couple of clips from the interview with Sarah Palin, which will air on Monday. In one of the clips, Oprah asks Palin whether Levi Johnston, the father of her grandbaby, is invited to the Palins for Thanksgiving. The former Alaska governor replies:
“It’s lovely to think that he would ever even consider such a thing. Because, he is a part of the family and you want to bring him in the fold and kind of under your wing. And he needs that, too, Oprah. I think he needs to know that he is loved and he has the most beautiful child and this can all work out for good. We don’t have to keep going down this road of controversy and drama all the time. We’re not really into the drama. We don’t really like that. We’re more productive. We have other things to concentrate on.”
Well, so does Levi, Mrs. Palin, or haven’t you heard about his recent Playgirl shoot, hmm? But, really, can you imagine if Levi did join the Palins for Thanksgiving this year? I bet he’d have a hard time telling the difference between his son, Tripp, and Palin’s infant son, Trig. Awkward! Keep reading »
“No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting breast implants as a Christian. I think it’s a personal decision. I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where it says you shouldn’t get breast implants.
—De-throned beauty queen Carrie Prejean may also be surprised that the Bible doesn’t say anything about airplanes, the polio vaccine, pasteurized milk, or electricity, either. [Christianity Today] Keep reading »
