“There’s definitely a culture barrier that people don’t understand. In Latin culture, there are many words you can say to a woman to tell her that you care about her: falling in love, loving her, needing her. Those words might not have a translation in English. Te Quiero [I like you], Te Quiero Mucho [I like you a lot], Te Adoro [I adore you], Me Encantas [McDonald's translation is "I'm Loving It"]. These mean something to Latins, but they don’t mean the same to Americans. I’ve learned that “love” is used a lot in the States for everything: I love that burger, I love my shoes, I love a friend. To me, if it’s overused, it loses meaning.
Former “Bachelor” Juan Pablo Galavis told People that he still hasn’t told his girlfriend Nikki Ferrell that he loves her. The two are currently starring on VH1′s “Couples Therapy,” in which they work out the many, many issues they have with each other on national TV while he continues to be THE WORST, surprising exactly no one. Sure, they’ve been together a pretty short time to already have so many things to talk about in therapy, but Juan Pablo has already displayed an array of dismissive, commitment-phobic behaviors, like refusing to propose to Nikki on the “Bachelor” finale, actively hiding from the L word, and referring to Nikki as a “regular friend” (his words) to his daughter. For real, Juan Pablo’s daughter apparently doesn’t even see Nikki as his girlfriend. Keep reading »
Of the many icy, headband-wielding women who have traipsed across our screens in television history, Blair Waldorf is by far one of the most legendary. While “Gossip Girl” has long finished filming, Blair’s freakishly coordinated clothing and conniving power plays still linger in my heart. She may be a bitchy control freak, even a bully, but she never pretends to be anyone but herself, and that’s what makes her my favorite Upper East Sider. Every teenage “Gossip Girl” viewer could relate to the fact that no matter how hard Blair tries to create a veneer of perfection, she still struggles with feelings of inadequacy against her sunny, effortless BFF Serena. The self-awareness that separates Blair and Serena is ultimately what makes Queen B so superior. Serena continuously sees herself as some kind of compassionate goddess, oblivious to how selfish her every move is, while Blair is proudly self-serving and a never-ending fountain of grim-but-true wisdom. So, apropos of nothing (okay, maybe it’s to balance out all the attention Serena’s real-life counterpart Blake Lively has been getting lately), here are some of Blair’s most striking zingers after the jump.

There’s not much that needs to be said about this, aside from the fact that someone should get Kristen Bell a trophy for Wife Of The Year.
The “Veronica Mars” star got VERY up close and personal with her husband Dax Shepard’s ass when he decided it should be shaved for a nude scene in “This Is Where I Leave You.” Hesitant to let a stranger see his “forest in the valley,” he put his wife up to the job, and she obliged. Dax explains to Conan O’Brien that not only did Kristen get all up in there with an electric razor, but she sang a little tune while she was at it like a real sport. Check out the video and try really hard to not get a visual of the scenario.
So, what do we think of Beyonce’s new hair. besides the fact that it’s obviously a wig and no doubt will be gone tomorrow? I am digging the ’50s style of the baby bangs, but I’m distracted by how it looks like her hair is hovering around her head rather than coming out of it. See what I mean? Anyway, speaking of baby bangs, baby Blue Ivy was photographed clutching the gold version of my exact same Eiffel Tower keychain (mine is silver-colored, Blue’s is probably solid gold). Blue Ivy and I (and every other tourist in Paris) have so much in common, aren’t you jealous? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
