“How do you wear all this leather and stay cool? I love that smell of the emissions.”
—Sarah Palin not only loves hunting. Apparently, she’s into motorcycling, too, even if she doesn’t get wearing head-to-toe leather in the summer. Palin is currently on a bus tour of the Eastern U.S., and yesterday headed to Washington, D.C., to participate in Rolling Thunder, an annual motorcycle rally for veterans that happens in conjunction with the parade on the National Mall. Folks, put on your helmets. It sure looks like we are in for a Sarah Palin 2012 campaign for the presidency after all. [Fox News] Keep reading »
“There are no secrets at our house. We tell the kids, ‘Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.’ They go, ‘Eww, gross!’ But we demand it.”
– Brad Pitt on how he and partner Angelina Jolie sneak away from their army of kids in order to get some alone time. I love that “kiss” really means “animalistic sex session” (that’s how Star once described the couple’s sex life, BTW). [USA Today] Keep reading »
Dame Helen Mirren is a very accomplished lady. In addition to the many parts she’s played, we can now add the role of “carnivorous plant” to her resume. This week, Helen unveiled her new namesake plant, the “Helen,” at London’s Chelsea Flower Show. The “Helen,” born and bred in Sri Lanka, is a rare hybrid from the genus Nepenthes, a breed of carnivorous plants known “tropical pitcher plants” because monkeys often drink rain water out of them. It’s all so very “Little Shop of Horrors.” Let’s hope the “Helen” doesn’t have a thirst for human blood. Bwah ha ha ha! [This Is London UK] Keep reading »
There’s some very promising summer TV coming our way, and then there’s some lazy, regurgitated shlock that makes me groan.
Why? Because some of the networks’ newest reality shows don’t just feature concepts we’ve seen before, but the stars are recycled as well. And we really didn’t even like some of them the first (or second, or third) go-round!

This past year, Lily Allen gave up the music biz and got into fashion. She opened a vintage shop with her BFF Sarah Owen, called Lucy in Disguise (get it?), and just now, have released a set of their own original designs.

“Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t and I’ve gotta give you like four million quid. Are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her first album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”
— Could Adele be any more relatable and down-to-earth? It turns out the hottest singer in the world right now hates paying taxes as much as the rest of us. (Don’t worry, she has an accountant!) It also sounds like Adele is super-generous with all the money she’s earned: she bought two homes in London for herself and her mom and set up trust funds for several cousins who are “young mums.” I love this woman.
