The Worst Yearbook Moments Ever

Yearbooks capture the most awkward moments of our lives. I can hardly open mine. During my senior year, I decided it was a good idea to get dreadlocks, a decision forever immortalized in my National Honor Society photo. Terrible? Definitely. But even my worst yearbook moments pale in comparison to these horrors. Keep reading »

    First Dog Bo Beanie Baby Selling Out

    After the election, toy company Ty started selling dolls named for first daughters Sasha and Malia. Then they got in trouble because Michelle Obama didn’t want her kids used for profit. Now, we wonder how she’ll feel about Ty using the family dog, Bo. The company introduced a black and white beanie baby dog named Bo two days after the real Bo arrived at the White House. They’re selling out at stores around the country, and a portion of the profits goes to local animal shelters. Some eBay sellers are asking as much as $139.95 for the toy Bo. We suggest you buy a real shelter dog with the money instead. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

    Bravo’s “NYC Prep” A Lot More Boring Than “Gossip Girl”

    Bravo decided to combine “Gossip Girl” and “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and the result is “NYC Prep.” On this reality show, which premieres June 23, cameras will follow five wealthy teens as they navigate Manhattan’s social scene, shop, apply for college, and work on charity events. They lead lives unfamiliar to most New York kids — or adults, for that matter — despite Bravo’s claims to the contrary. What will be familiar to you are the I’m-not-in-the-cool-crowd feeling you had in high school because your parents didn’t consider how their features would mesh into one face and didn’t see fit to replace your silver spoon with a Black AmEx. “Gossip Girl” is fun because it’s fiction, and the characters, although teens, deal with adult issues. I don’t think “Gossip Girl” would have been a success if we had to watch Jenny Humphrey sketching and sewing her designs or Blair Waldorf filling out her Yale application. “The Real Housewives” is entertaining because it provides all the fun of gossiping without the guilt. “NYC Prep” will have to bridge the gap between making teen life entertaining to adults and ensuring the kids don’t become too adult-like in order for this show to be successful. And Bravo has to get these kids to stop ending every statement with an inflec-tion? Keep reading »

    What Will Farrah Fawcett’s Obit Picture Be?

    As you’ve probably read, Farrah Fawcett has terminal cancer and isn’t doing well. While Fawcett and those around her are praying for a miracle, it’s likely she’ll pass away soon. But what photo of her will they use for her obituary: something glamorous or less so? The one of her posing in a red swimsuit is her most famous, but it doesn’t exactly seem appropriate.

    According to a study of obituaries in the Plain Dealer, the number of “age-inaccurate” photos accompanying obituaries has more than doubled since the late 1960s. In 1967, about 17 percent of obituary photographs in the paper showed the deceased at least 15 years younger than they were when they died. In 1997, it was 36 percent. Keith Anderson, an assistant professor of social work at Ohio State University said the results reflect society’s views on aging and appearance: “Our findings suggest that we were less accepting of aging in the 1990s than we were back in the ’60s.”

    Yep, we’re all afraid of getting old. When someone dies, you don’t want to think of them at their worst. Instead, you want to remember the good old days. It’s likely that this is even more true of Hollywood stars, especially those who are most well-known for work they did earlier in their lives. [LiveScience] Keep reading »
