Hey, have you guys heard of “kiss-feeding”? I don’t have a kid so I always feel “WTF?!” when I hear about, um, interesting parenting methods and my response to kiss-feeding was definitely “WTF?!” Allow me to explain: kiss-feeding is where the parent chews up food and then spits it in the baby’s mouth, like a mother bird would to her lil’ chick. Alicia Silverstone is a kiss-feeder and she posted a video of her feeding her 11-month-old son Bear this way on her health food site TheKindLife.com. Some people are freaking out about it; I wouldn’t say that I am freaking out, but I guess I’m sort of, like, why? I get that without a full-set of teeth, Bear can’t chew solids, but isn’t that what Gerber’s etc. or — in the case of parents who make their own baby food — blenders are for? I’m pretty sure Alicia Silverstone can afford a blender. Anyway, kiss-feeding seems like something done in ye olden times, before blenders were invented. I really don’t want to be judge-y, so what say you? [Fox News]
Is there ever going to be a chink in Zooey Deschanel’s cool armor? On a recent appearance of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” she revealed her ties to my all-time favorite television show, “Twin Peaks.” Her mother, Mary Jo Deschanel, played Eileen Hayward, who you may remember better as Donna’s (Lara Flynn Boyle) mother. As if that weren’t enough, Zooey’s father directed a bunch of episodes. So she basically grew up on the set. I was willing to overlook Zooey’s perfect bangs, her closet full of vintage dresses, her indie music career. I was willing to chalk it all up to good luck and good genes. But this I cannot overlook. She grew up romping around the red room, playing patty cake with the log lady, having burgers at the Double R Diner. Not fair! I’m incredibly jealous. There, I said it. [Buzzfeed]
“Don’t lie–you have to remember it! The single best thing about honesty is that it requires no follow-up. Every lie is something you’re responsible for as long as you want to keep it going, and few of them merit that mental storage space.”
– Rachel Maddow tells O magazine about her favorite piece of advice. Let’s just say I’m not lying when I say I’ve got a raging crush on Rachel Maddow (who has a new book out today, by the way). Love. Her.
So, Nickelodean star Victoria Justice did something really awesome with her outfit here. Rather than going with a basic jacket and jeans combo, Justice picked an accent blazer and paired it with a basic shirt and jeans. I love this colorful striped blazer and think it’s a great spring piece. Would you wear something like this?
Lily Collins is the star of the new fairy tale-inspired movie “Mirror Mirror.” She’s also the daughter of adult-contempo singer Phil Collins, but thankfully didn’t get his looks. Instead, she’s got a total Audrey Hepburn vibe, working the red carpet in a variety of gorgeous designer looks. Lily seems to love Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel — and exudes a more classic vibe then some of her young contemporaries (ahem, Miley Cyrus). Check out some of our favorite Lily Collins’ red carpet moments after the jump!
Like most “Mad Men” fans, I was not sure about Don Draper boning, then abruptly marrying, his new secretary, Megan. I wasn’t surprised he got under Megan’s skirt so quickly, of course. But given Don record of getting the golden ticket and then discarding women, I puzzled over why he saw Megan as a keeper.
Sunday night’s episode let us see that it’s not just Megan’s beauty drawing Don in. She’s sweet with his kids. She knows how to manipulate him in his pissy moments. They seem to share a slightly sadomasochistic sex drive. She’s upbeat and positive and unlike his ex-wife Betty, she’s a career girl. (Well, a budding one, anyway.) It’s easy to see how Megan makes him feel young again. Call us officially “Team Megan.”
It seems like Megan will be sticking around — at least for awhile, Don is still Don after all — so let’s take a closer look at Jessica Paré, the 29-year-old (ukelele-playing!) French-Canadian actress who plays her onscreen. Keep reading »
