Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
In case you didn’t have cable in the ’80s you might have missed the wholesome, corn-fed blonde, Stacy Ann Ferguson, on my favorite show “Kids, Incorporated.” So what was little Stacy Ann up to between then and joining the Black Eyed Peas as Fergie? In an interview with The Sunday Times, she was dabbling in serious debauchery. Fergie says she went through a period of doing ecstasy and meth. She was also obsessed with East L.A. gangsta dudes, aka “cholos.” While I suppose that Fergie is telling the truth about her “dark past,” I’m thinking that she may have been going through what the rest of the known world calls “adolescence.” You know, that time in your life when you are confused about your identity and you make really poor choices, including experimenting with drugs, alcohol, and sex. Who is Fergie kidding? She is no hardened criminal or rehabilitated juvenile delinquent because she had a bad meth trip and slept with a couple of homies. She went to therapy, became a superstar, and now she’s married to Josh Duhamel. Yawn. [Popeater] Keep reading »
A recent Frisky meeting almost came to blows when it came to the subject of Ivanka Trump and her new business book, The Trump Card. In one corner, there was me — I get enraged like a Pamplona bull at the slightest whiff of nepotism. Donald Trump‘s daughter has a lot of nerve writing a business advice book, coasting through life with the last name “Trump”! But in the other corner we had sweet ol’ Catherine who said she really likes and respects Miss Trump. Ivanka may have been born Donald Trump’s daughter, Catherine said, but she’s still worked hard of her own accord! I wasn’t buying it.
I’ll eat my words today, though, after watching a clip of Ivanka on “Good Morning America.” I still think it’s silly that she wrote a business advice book, but I have more respect for Ivanka knowing she’s serious about following in her dad’s real estate footsteps. In this clip she explains how Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, called her up on the eve of her graduation and offered her the job “a million girls would die for” at Vogue … which Ivanka turned down.
Still … way to keep the torch of nepotism burning, Anna. Keep reading »
When I watched our own Kiki T. on “Tyra” yesterday I noticed something quite different from the last time I watched the show nearly year ago: Tyra was one skinny bitch! Huh, I thought, When did that happen? Didn’t she famously tell everyone to kiss her fat ass not too long ago? I thought she said she liked being curvy. This morning, new photos of the 5’10″ Tyra flaunting her new size-8 figure on a shoot around New York City have hit newspapers and blogs. Joining the ranks of Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and countless other female celebs who publicly claim to love their fuller figures only to then drop a bunch of weight, Tyra has recently lost 30 lbs. and is excited to show off her smaller frame. She especially likes showing it off nekkid: “I might be doing a little TMI — I always feel great when I don’t have clothes on.” Keep reading »
“With the gay movement, it’s personal. The same religious-right a**holes who took away my civil rights and put me in jail for a year because they don’t like what I do for a living have taken away gay rights. I know firsthand how it feels to have your civil rights stripped from you. P.S. lots of lesbians marched, too.”
- Rumor has it that Sean “Diddy” Combs has something going on with Dawn from Danity Kane, despite his committed relationship with Cassie and Dawn’s engagement to Que from Day 26. [Media Takeout] — Well, Cassie is proof that Sean doesn’t mind getting down with someone on his payroll.
- Although Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez have been dating since last November, the other Yankees’ wives and girlfriends reportedly can’t stand her and their cold shoulders have gotten the players involved. [Your Tango] — They’re wasting their time. It’s not like this thing between Kate and A-Rod will last much longer.
Vince Vaughn got engaged to Canadian realtor Kyla Weber on Valentine’s Day this year, but before you get all giddy with romantic clichés, he told Ellen DeGeneres that he picked that particular day so he’d never forget the date. “Valentine’s Day rolled around and I figured this is not a ship to be missed,” he said, before spewing out some more Shakespearean prose. “[It] worked out great because it would have been kind of weird to have talked about [getting engaged] and then skipped Valentine’s Day as if who knows when this thing is coming.” [People]
Be still, my heart. Fortunately, some famous men have more of a romantic streak. Read on for some actually sweet celebrity proposals! Keep reading »
“Couples Retreat,” the flick about four couples who receive couples therapy on a paradise vacation, killed it at the box office this weekend, pulling in $35.3 million by Sunday night, which is pretty impressive since critics have been slamming it. My brother even claims it was worse than “Joe Versus the Volcano,” which is the film to which we compare all bad movies. But neither success nor criticism can distract us from the most important question of all, which is, of course: Which cast members would we shun, shag, or marry? I cursed the day that I would have to shun any of these fine gentlemen, but, unfortunately, journalism is a cutthroat vocation and sometimes you’ve got to break some eggs to make breakfast.

Kelly Osbourne and her model BF, Luke Worrell, are the cutest couple evah! They’re so friggin’ butt crazy for each other we can’t even make fun of their matching hairdos. Hey, it looked fabu on both of them as they posed on the red carpet for The Hollywood Style Awards (whatever those are). [Los Angeles, 10/11/09] Keep reading »
