Sarah Jessica Parker said she and the “Sex and the City” movie producers are trying to make the sequel recession-friendly, a tough task because “SATC” is all about luxury and fine living. To help out, we’ve put together a few ideas. If SJP and Darren Star use our suggestions, we expect to see “The Frisky” in the movie’s credits. And a pair of Manolos. Keep reading »

Selling Plastic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgeons have always seemed like the used car salesmen of doctors — they profit off women (and men) not liking parts of their bodies and being willing to pay to change them. But have you ever wondered if these crafty folks try to charm and sell patients on treatments that they hadn’t considered before? Melanie Berliet, a Vanity Fair writer, went undercover to test her hypothesis that plastic surgeons try to sell additional procedures to patients that they don’t “need.” The 5’9″, 120-pound 27-year-old, who wears a size 34B bra, went into the consultations under the guise of wanting breast augmentation. Surprisingly, the three surgeons had different reactions to her physique, but all of them recommended procedures she hadn’t originally asked for. Find out the deets, after the jump… Keep reading »

Book Smart: Oscar Reads “Milk”

Gus Van Sant’s biopic “Milk” is nominated for Best Original Screenplay, but writer Dustin Lance Black drew heavily on “The Mayor of Castro Street,” Randy Shilts’ 1982 biography of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official, played onscreen by the fiery Sean Penn.

Something that sets this movie apart from the pack of plain old biopics is its use of actual archival and documentary footage. But Black also took some liberties with the story—here’s a rundown, so you don’t get caught revising Wikipedia with “facts” from the movie that are as real as Bernie Madoff’s money. Keep reading »

    Cosmo’s Orgasm That Killed!

    Cosmopolitan’s bread and butter is teaching women how to sex things up, in a billion different ways, which is precisely why we were shocked to read this cover line on their March Issue: “An Orgasm Almost Killed Her!” with the laughable tag, “We Are Not Kidding.” Are they biting the hand that feeds, or has their crack team of journalists finally found a dark side to doing it?

    You Should Listen To Steve Harvey’s Dating Advice

    I would never in a million years have thought I would take dating advice from Steve Harvey (I couldn’t watch his TV show), but he was on “Today” this morning promoting his new bestselling book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, and he actually sounded like he knew what he was talking about. The only thing I’m not sure about is his suggestion that we wait 90 days before giving a guy any “cookies.” By cookies, I think he means sex. If you were dating a guy and didn’t do anything physical for three months, wouldn’t he just up and leave? Keep reading »

    The Atlanta Housewives Put The NYC And OC Housewives To Shame!

    Instead of enjoying the season premiere episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City” last night, I just kept thinking about how much I missed the Atlanta housewives. The New York housewives, and Orange County for that matter, have nothing on those ladies. Let’s face it, “Atlanta” brought the drama in its first season… Keep reading »

    Jay McCarroll’s Eleven Minutes

    Jay McCarroll, the fashion designer who won the first season of “Project Runway,” is the focus of a new documentary that arrives just in time for New York Fashion Week: “Eleven Minutes.” Why 11 minutes? That’s how long his first fashion show will last. The cameras follow McCarroll behind the scenes as he works to live up to the expectations that reality TV bestowed upon him and at the same time expose the insanity that is the fashion industry, of which McCarroll says: “It is the dumbest industry.” Dumb or not, the doc, the cast of which includes the delightful Kelly Cutrone, is a mostly hilarious, sometimes moving look at what it takes to make it — without compromising yourself. The bigger question, of course, is whether McCarroll or any of his reality TV show peers will be able to turn their 15 minutes of fame as reality stars into stars in the real world. Keep reading »
