In her spare time, Claire Danes is married to Hugh Dancy, so she must be doing something right. Like really, really right. Regardless, I like Claire, even more so as of late, since she’s been out and about doing press for her TV show, “Homeland,” being generally funny and quirky and not at all like your typical Hollywood mouthpiece. She came out Monday night in Tribeca for the premiere of Hysteria, which her husband stars in, and chose a daring Narciso Rodriguez dress for the occasion. I honestly like that Claire isn’t afraid of taking sartorial risks — she almost never goes for basic, safe standbys, instead preferring edgier, more colorful pieces. This is a gorgeous dress any way you look at it but I just don’t know if it’s flattering on her, especially in the chest, where she’s small. What do you think of this dress on Claire: love it or leave it?
Celebrities seem to be practically required to launch their own alcohol lines these days, and Drew Barrymore is the latest to enter the game. Her Barrymore 2011 Pinot Grigio, already available in California and coming to New York next month, won a gold medal earlier this month at France’s biggest international wine competition, reports the New York Post—which also helpfully reminds us that Barrymore was an admitted alcoholic at the age of 13.

Beyonce has landed the title and cover of People‘s World’s Most Beautiful Woman issue, a fairly BS accolade, but hey, it’s the first time in nine years that a black woman has “won” so that’s something. Beyonce tells the mag that she does indeed feel beautiful, and more so than ever since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy. ”I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth,” she said of being a mom. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.” Aww, cute. [People]
Apparently the contestants on ”America’s Next Top Model” aren’t the only ones in need of a makeover. The world was shocked last week when Tyra Banks suddenly fired her team consisting of Nigel Barker, Miss J. Alexander and Jay Manuel … and now we know why.
“We reached a point, where were feel the show needs a new boost,” Tyra told Access Hollywood at the 2012 Matrix Awards in New York City on Monday. “It’s very difficult because I love my guys, they’re my guys,” she added. “They’ve been there since the beginning of the show.” Read more…
I am a little worried about the possibility of an impending apocalypse. Not only is Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi sober, pregnant, and excited to be a mom—but Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has a girlfriend. Yes, a girlfriend. You know, one of those people who you let keep a toothbrush at your place rather than calling a cab to take home approximately five minutes after you’re done smushing? Her name is Caitlin J. Wood. Here’s hoping that she has had a full STD screening, and enjoys cleaning out hot tubs. Keep reading »
TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” is everything I could have longed for in a show and more. I am like a kid in a candy store grappling with toilet paper consumers, rock eaters, compulsive nail growers, and even pee drinkers. OK, so the pee drinking episode was really hard to watch. But most of the others … absolutely compelling. So many odd obsessions, so little time. What are the chances they’ll start airing the show ’round the clock? Maybe they could feature Scarlett Johansson next season. Now that she’s off her strict “Avengers” diet, she’s going buck wild … with buffalo wings. “Oh my good [I am obsessed] with buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them … You will have to roll me down the red carpet next time you see me … I can’t stop eating them, I just can’t get enough.” That sounds like the makings of a great “My Strange Addiction” episode. I’m picturing ScarJo making covert excursions to sports bars and eating her wings secretly in the parking lot. Keep on clicking to see other celebs’ strange addictions. [Celebitchy]
