has released the video for “Best Thing I Never Had,” and normally, I am all about new Beyoncé videos. But I’m not so sure about this one. It starts with B standing around in bridal lingerie, awkwardly singing to an ex. As the video proceeds, we see Beyoncé and said ex at prom (where he dances with another girl) and Beyoncé at her wedding with the ex in attendance (wearing a pair of bad glasses) as she belts out lyrics like, “Thank god you blew it/ Thank god I dodged a bullet.” Now, I love the sentiment of this song. But really—a woman is singing to her ex
on her wedding day? Who came up with this concept? Also, I don’t recommend rolling around in the grass in a wedding dress. Just sayin’. [D-Listed

We used to schlep our stuff to the beach in a regular canvas tote bag that never really had adequate space. Then we came across Fashionable Notes’ Beach Bag, which has made beach-going a more practical and easy experience. The Beach Bag is large enough to hold a couple of towels or large sheets, a magazine and a book, a water bottle, and a sandwich and snacks with room left over. “Beach Bag” is stylishly printed on the side of the bag with water-based ink. The inside is coated with a vinyl-like product that’s easy to clean, and there are rubber feet at the bottom so the bag doesn’t actually rest in the sand. Now, we have to stop ourselves from going to the beach just to show off our Beach Bag.
My relationship with Joe Manganiello goes way back. It started when he appeared in a bit part on “How I Met Your Mother.” Wow, that guy is hot, I thought. A few years later, the same gorgeous face appeared as a heartbroken werewolf on “True Blood” with a prediliction for taking his shirt off. I swooned. Joe has yet to make an appearance in the two episodes of “TB” season four that have aired so far, which is highly disappointing. So today, when I caught a glimpse Joe’s cover of Muscle & Fitness magazine, it was the first time we’d come face to face in months. And I freaked. That perfect, perfect specimen has gotten—gulp—way too muscle-bound for my taste. Put down the weights, Joe, put down the weights. Keep reading »
Though I’m rarely seen in public without makeup, even I realize the ridiculousness of wearing a full face of makeup on the beach. I was fully on Team No Beach Makeup … until last Monday. After a day of relaxing on the sand and in the sun, I looked haggard. My eyes were sunken with small bags, and my skin was oily and shiny. Luckily, I had sunglasses and a hat to hide my mug. But it made me reconsider my stance on beach makeup. Here are the makeup and accessories that will keep you looking beautiful at the beach and on the way home. Of course, if you’re actually going swimming, which I hardly do, then forget the makeup, but make sure you have these accessories at hand.
