Whenever Winona really loves something, she refers to it as “Dream Life Status.” Dream Life Status seems like a pretty fitting way to describe what it might be like to hang out with “The Artist” star Uggie and Walking Handsome Eyebrows actor Ian Somerhalder. I just watched Somerhalder in the all-together terrible movie “Rules of Attraction” (I don’t recommend it, but I totally recommend it, if you know what I mean), and he is dreamy. He and Uggie met and hung out (sadly without me) at the Genesis Awards, the Humane Society’s award show to raise public awareness about animal issues.
Earlier this month, Jennifer Aniston popped into a vintage lighting store in New York City and dropped $20,000 on lights for her LA mansion (meanwhile, in Real People Land, we’re debating whether or not to drop 30 bucks on a lamp from IKEA). Obviously $20K is nothing when you’re a super rich celebrity like Aniston, who earned an estimated $28 million last year. Jen’s not the only celeb flexing her buying power.

“The more I got naked, the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it. After a while, it was like, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ I just started being a little more daring with it. It was just knowing my body is what it is under clothes or outside of clothes.”
– Rihanna tells Britain’s Women’s Fitness magazine about the confidence-building effects of stripping down for music videos and photo shoots. While most of us don’t have the desire or the means to flaunt our bods so publicly, the overall message of being comfortable with your naked self is definitely a universal truth. [People]
January Jones has a tip for staving off exhaustion as new “mum” — placenta pills. The “Mad Men” star told People about her slightly unorthodox health regimen:
“I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas and with placenta capsulation … Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re only the only mammals who don’t ingest out own placentas … It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all mums!”
Hey, if it works, why not? I guess it would swallow some placenta if it gave me the energy I needed to exist on very little sleep. The only thing I’m bothered by is January’s use of the word “mum.” Have her placenta pills made her British? Also, can she please tell us who Xander’s daddy is already?

I’m not sure if I’ll actually watch “The Carrie Diaries,” The CW’s upcoming show about “Sex and the City”‘s Carrie Bradshaw and crew as teenagers, but I am officially impressed with the styling on the show. This first photo of AnnaSophia Robb in costume as young Carrie is pretty damn close to how I imagine the world’s highest paid and most self-absorbed columnist would have looked in her early years. (In other words, not that different from how she looked in her thirties.) [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
