After compiling a list last month of the 20 sexiest ugly people, the editors at Nerve have just published a list of the 20 unsexiest beautiful people — “a shapely gang of cold fish for whom beauty is, sadly, only skin-deep.” The list includes the obvious names you’d expect to see on a list of people whose traditional good looks do nothing to spark even tinge of sexual charisma: Tom Cruise, Gwyneth Paltrow, and ousted Miss California Carrie Prejean, as well as a few debatable choices like Reese Witherspoon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck (I’m sure there are quite a few right-wingers who find her sex appeal downright magnetic). As thorough as the list is, I couldn’t help but notice some glaring absences of pretty obvious names. After the jump, my pick for ten more of the world’s unsexiest beautiful people. Keep reading »
Jon Gosselin decided that after all that family time he spent at the Reading, PA, compound, it was time to get the hell out of dodge and see the world a little bit. So, what did ol’ Jonny do? He called up his new buddy, Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier, and got himself an invitation to hang on his yacht in Saint Tropez. He also decided to walk around France hand-in-hand with his new girlfriend just two weeks after Kate filed for divorce. And if that’s not enough JG news, his girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is the daughter (she’s 22 years old) of Kate’s plastic surgeon. What a classy guy! Check out the couples posing for photos, at left, Hailey is in the button down and jeans. But wait! Apparently, the trip wasn’t all play… Keep reading »
- Debbie Rowe has reportedly given up her custody fight for Michael Jackson’s children, and it only cost Katherine Jackson $4 million! [NY Post] — She probably only wanted money all along.
- Molly Ringwald gave birth to twins, a girl and boy named Adele Georgiana and Roman Stylianos. [Dlisted]
- Mira Sorvino had a son after a potentially life-threatening pregnancy that endangered her and the child. [Us Weekly] — Modern medicine saves the day again.
Last week it was announced that Tara Subkoff, designer for the edgy, high-end brand Imitation of Christ, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and would be undergoing brain surgery. If she doesn’t get the surgery — which will require a year of recovery, during which she won’t be able to work — within two years, the tumor will be fatal. As a result, her friends — who include big time stars like “The Royal Tenenbaums” director Wes Anderson and actress Chloe Sevigny — are throwing her a silent auction art benefit (they’re asking for donations) tomorrow night in New York City to raise money to pay for the costly procedure.
Because Subkoff, it seems, does not have health insurance. My second response — after the initial, “Oh man, that’s sad” — was, “Umm, why the f**k not?” Keep reading »
Mel Gibson’s girlfriend has an achy-breaky heart. Last month we posted Oksana Grigorieva’s first single, “Say My Name.” Well the singer (?) has just released her first video, for the song “Beautiful Heartache.” And I have to say the video is a little random. Oksana sings about her heartburn while tango dancers whip across the floor, a knife thrower narrowly misses stabbing Oksana’s pencil-thin frame, and then her piano catches on fire? Oksana also sings about how she likes “the way you wear your skin.” I would say she wears hers a little stretched out with a touch of collagen. Witness the magic for yourself above. Keep reading »
Posh Spice Victoria Beckham may or may not be in the upcoming Sex and the City sequel. Ohmygod. Intel on this rumor remains fairly vague, so we can’t tell you much beyond the whisperings that she’ll be playing a fashion industry figure if she does, indeed, make an appearance. But lest we leave you hanging entirely, let’s engage in some wild speculation as to what various roles she might play. Fun, right? [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Our fave posh fashionista is ready for her closeup…well, as soon as she learns to act. That’s right, rumor has it that Victoria Beckham has enrolled in acting classes in the hopes of landing a coveted cameo in the “Sex in the City” sequel. She allegedly turned down a walk-on role in the first film because she was too busy rehearsing for the Spice Girls reunion tour. Translation: she’s a very bad actress. We know that she is a pro at being her thin and bitchy self (I would be bitchy too if I was that hungry), but can she hold her own with the likes of SJP? [Daily News]
After the jump, a look back at Victoria Beckham’s very slim acting resume. Keep reading »
One of the first things you learn about alt-girl favorite Tori Amos is that she was raped when she was younger. Anyone who listens to her chilling song, “Me And A Gun,” off her Little Earthquakes album knows that and Amos has been honest about her assault for years.
Recently, Amos bravely opened up to London’s Guardian newspaper for their “What I Know About Men,” feature, in which a famous woman shares her secrets about the opposite sex. But Amos’ heartbreaking piece may as well have been titled “How Being Raped Affected My Life.” It was only after giving birth to her daughter that she “claimed [her] body back” and through the love of her husband that she could have a healthy relationship with men.
