Welcome to the Twilight book club! WARNING: Do not read the following post if you would not like to know what happens in the second half of the book.
I gotta say, it was hard to put the book down. There was so much action from chapter 13 through the end that I stayed up reading it until 1am. Keep reading to see our discussion, then tell us what you think in the comments! Keep reading »
This Friday, Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the call girl whose hotel trist with then-New York governor Eliot Spitzer led to the sex scandal of the year, will appear on ABC’s “20/20” for a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer. If Spitzergate went down six months ago, why is Dupre talking now? Last week, the state of New York declared it wouldn’t be pressing charges against the Love Gov, meaning it’s unlikely Dupre will be charged for her part in the scandal, which frees the former escort to make her case to the public. On the same day, a lengthy profile of Dupre will appear in People. In excerpts from the interviews posted online, it sounds like the 23-year-old is looking to make apologies and mend her ways.

One of the biggest shockers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season finale was the breakup of Kim and Big Poppa, after only seven months of dating. We can’t believe she thought he would propose to her. We’re going to assume that he dumped her because, let’s face it, Kim had no reason to end things with her sugar daddy. We think the best prescription for this heartbreak and budget-ache is for Kim to jump right back into the dating pool. Check out who should be Big Poppa II after the jump. Keep reading »

Will Big Poppa make an appearance? Will NeNe find out who her real father is? Will Lisa or DeShawn suddenly become interesting? I cannot wait to see how this hot mess ends! Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of “The Hills” served two purposes — to make us psyched about next week’s big “ZOMG, Justin Bobby and Lauren Conrad hooked up?!” scandal, and to show that Justin Bobby does indeed have a softer side. In the clip above, he surprises Audrina with a gift! A t-shirt! So romantic! And he wants her to wear it “with no bra please, thank you.” Well, that was a step, at least, JB. Anyway, a teaser for next week’s climactic episode, after the jump… Keep reading »
In the first few episodes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” we noticed that the women, especially Lisa Wu Hartwell, always greeted each other by addressing each others beauty. They say, “Hey beautiful!” or “You’re so gorgeous.” At first we thought this was a fluke, that they’re just not used to cameras following them and are pulling for dialogue, but these exclamations have lasted through the season finale. We think it’s kind of sad that mothers who purport to be elite society with their own clothing/jewelry lines, charitable foundations or singing careers have to base their worth on physical attributes. We’re not saying these women aren’t beautiful, we just think they’re (supposed to be) much more than that. I have a girlfriend who has an adorable daughter. I mean, she’s so cute it hurts to look at her. But whenever I see her, I always say, “Hello, beautiful, intelligent girl.” I don’t want her to grow up thinking she’s valued just because she’s pretty. I know another six year old who bats her eyelashes to get what she wants. This girl is also highly intelligent, but she’s already learned to use her beauty, not her mind, to satisfy her wants. The real housewives are too old to change, but we’re comforted by the fact that we can stop this cycle with the little girls in our lives. Keep reading »
The gloriously gorgeous Nate Archibald is back and he brought a good storyline with him! The Captain, aka Nate’s father, is back and he has secret plans. While Nate is initially surprised that his dad wants to make a life with him and his naïve mother, he eventually finds out the truth with Vanessa and the FBI’s help. Extortion and kidnapping? Excellent work, writers of GG! To think Nate’s own father would basically hold his wife and child for ransom, is so terribly sad and pathetic. I’m glad Nate put on his big boy pants and turned him in. He is now truly the man of the family. Tear! Keep reading »
