I can’t begin to count the numerous ways I am on the edge-of-my-seat excited for the new Harry Potter movie. The number one reason (besides the obvious fact that I am obsessed): “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” is going to be one massive snog fest! Keep reading »
Add another tick to the list of why Oprah is the best human ever. The media giant is taking all 100 employees from her TV production company, Harpo, plus their families, on a 10-day cruise around the Mediterranean. Four years ago, she brought all of her staff to Hawaii and this year they’re headed to Italy, Turkey, Greece, and Malta. Lucky! As if working for Oprah wasn’t already cool enough, the free trips are definitely the cherry on top. [Daily Mail]
After the jump, three more celebrities who give their staff jealousy-inducing perks: Keep reading »
I am not a vampire, though my reactions to the sun might make you think otherwise. Tragically, I have a mild allergy to the sun, so beach holidays aren’t really my thing. I tried to fight the fates for a while and burned and blistered my way through the Caribbean and Miami. But after my last hospitalization in a remote Mexican hospital run by old-school nuns and with chickens running about, I decided to embrace my paleness and flock to find others of my kind. Due to all the hoopla about bikinis, beach hair and self-tanner, I neglected the possibility of locales that didn’t require a beach bod or SPF-100—until now.

Summer lovin’ is in the air, which means you’re probably wearing sundresses and snogging in parks and sharing Dippin’ Dots while the sun beats down on your tan shoulders. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’re accidentally making s’mores every night and avoiding dates because you “have to wash your hair.” This is why movie theaters are awesome—you can eat in the dark and no one cares if you’re dressed like a homeless person. Go see “My Sister’s Keeper,” “Cheri,” “The Hurt Locker,” and if there’s time or you’re trying to bag a nerd who’s into loud noises, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Keep reading »
The war on Michelle Obama continues. This time it’s not her looks that her critics are attacking, but her sobriety. According to The National Enquirer, “Michelle Obama – cracking under the pressure of being First Lady – is drinking way more than she should, friends fear.” Oh really? The tabloid lists “close sources,” “friends,” and “insiders” who have lined up to tattle on Michelle’s excessive drinking habits which include: “overindulging during (her) date night” with the President in New York City on May 30th; knocking down “a glass or two of champagne” on a private jet and downing “two martinis during dinner at the Greenwich Village restaurant Blue Hill.
” That doesn’t exactly qualify for a membership at Alcoholics Anonymous, otherwise we’d be seeing her there, but the National Enquirer must have different standards. [via I Hate The Media] Keep reading »
