While some see Oprah’s fire walk as a publicity stunt to save OWN’s plummeting ratings, I see it as a sign that she hasn’t changed at all. She’s still the badass that took over daytime television and she intends to stay that way. She wouldn’t be Oprah if she didn’t come onstage with a wagon of fat, or live as a colonial woman for a week, or go on a road trip with Gayle, her not-lesbian lover. That is what Oprah does. She goes big. She makes noise. She goes to Anthony Robbins’ “Unleash Your Power Within” seminars and walks on hot coals to prove that those who achieve greatness take action. I refuse to hate on that. Mind over matter, girl! Show those coals who’s boss! [Limelife]
Wow. Adriana Lima has revealed how she preps for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and it sounds … sucky. Adriana works out with a trainer every day, lifting weights, boxing, and jumping rope — which sounds normal for someone whose body is their livelihood — but beginning three weeks ago, she’s been exercising twice a day in preparation for the show. And that’s not the worst of it: Adriana regularly sees a nutritionist who measures out exactly what she must consume to stay alive but also keep her thin. This tasty diet means nine days before the show, Adriana cuts out solid food entirely and survives off of protein shakes. Twelve hours before the show, she stops consuming liquids. Keep reading »
Oh, to be that Fudgesicle. Sorry, anyway, Ryan Gosling has been in Austin, Texas this week, filming a movie with Rooney Mara; while he was there, he attended the city’s Fun Fun Fun music festival. He was such a sought-after photo subject that a new Tumblr blog was created just for fan and paparazzi pics of Ryan having fun (fun fun). There are a plethora pics, but these six stood out to me.
Dear Jared Leto,
J-Rod, let’s talk. I’ve followed your career and your cheekbones and your 1000-yard stare ever since you were a flannel-wearing, illiterate teenage wastrel on “My So Called Life.” Your turn as Jordan Catalano — (“Y Kant Jordan Read?,” never forget) — the frustratingly vacant love interest of Angela Chase (remember how darling Claire Danes was before Latisse?) broke a million teenage girl hearts. Which is why I find it especially egregious that you’ve grown up to be the Jared Leto that you are today. The douche-y, guyliner-wearing Jared Leto that fronts MTV2 mainstay band 30 Seconds to Mars and insists on dressing like an utter and complete tool.

If there was ever any doubt about Dr. Drew Pinsky’s legitimacy as a doctor, let this video be proof that we should continue to hold him in the highest esteem! Dr. Drew invited underage bride Courtney Stodden and her old-as-f**k husband, Doug Hutchison, on his show, “Lifechangers,” recently, to defend their pumpkin patch PDA. But while they were there, Courtney also wanted to put some rumors to rest — namely that her enormous breasts are real and not implants. (Courtney is a big proponent of the natural look, as you can see from the buckets of eye shadow, frosted lip gloss, and spray-tanned abs.) So, Dr. Drew pulled out the exam table he has available at all times because he is a doctor, and had an exam conducted on stage. Courtney even wore one of those paper gowns! The verdict: her boobs are real. Case closed! I can’t wait until next week’s pap smear. So educational.
