Quotable: Candy Spelling Is “Happy” About Reuniting With Daughter Tori

Well, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. After a several-year estrangement, Tori Spelling and her mother, Candy Spelling, seem to have buried the hatchet and are working on their relationship. Says Candy to Us Weekly:

“We have been communicating. And we’ve taken it to a place that I’m very very pleased with. We’re handling it privately. I’m very happy to say that that’s how we’ll deal with it at this point. I’m so happy. That’s all I want to say about this topic — I’m happy.”

Who wants to place bets that this “private” matter becomes a major focus of Tori’s reality show next season? Keep reading »

“So You Think You Can Dance” Was Good For My Marriage

When I started watching “So You Think You Can Dance,” my husband gave the entire living room a wide berth. He’d hear Mary Murphy’s banshee-like glee at putting a dancer on the “hot tamale train,” and off to headphone land he’d go. But, summer had just started, my graduate school employment had just ended, and it was the beginning of the recession. TiVo meant I could watch the show whenever I wanted. There was no escape for him. Keep reading »

Quotable: Penelope Cruz Girl-Crushes On Meryl Streep And Sophia Loren

On Meryl Streep:

“There is nobody better than Meryl Streep. I watch her movies over and over again—I saw ‘Silkwood’ [1983] again a couple of weeks ago, and it made me just want to kiss her feet. We only know each other from seeing each other at awards ceremonies or those kinds of events, but whenever I see her, I always go up to her and start kissing her. I don’t even say anything—I just kiss her. She must think I’m some crazy person.”

On Sophia Loren, her co-star in “Nine”:

“She looks like a goddess. But she was always worried to see if we were eating enough. I was eating like a pig during that movie because I wanted to gain a few kilos. I was eating nonstop. But it was never enough for Sophia. She would say, “You’re not eating enough, and then you’re doing all this exercise! And I just saw Marion [Cotillard], and she left the table. That one eats less than you do—nothing!”

Today’s Lady News: France Suggests Forcing Quotas For Women In The Board Room

  • France has introduced legislation to bring 50/50 gender parity to French board rooms by 2015. All companies listed on the French stock exchange would be required to stock their boards with 50 percent women. The affirmative action-like plan would begin with women on 20 percent of board seats in 18 months and 40 percent of board seats within four years. Presently, women comprise only 10.5 percent of board members in companies listed on the French stock exchange. Norway enacted similar legislation in 2003. [Guardian UK]—I love this idea of diversifying talent by overcoming institutional obstacles with quotas. And by way of comparison, the percentage of female board members on U.S. Fortune 500 companies—considering it is the year 2009—is a paltry 15.2 percent. What do you think?
  • Hooray! There are lots of women on The New York Times‘ “Best Books of 2009″ list! Do you think the diverse offerings are helped by the fact that two of the Times‘ three daily book reviewers, Janet Maslin and Michiko Kakutani, are women? [New York Times]

Doctors Without Borders Gives Voice To Congo War Survivors


Doctors without Borders, the organization that goes to war zones and the forgotten ends of the earth to treat anyone who needs care, is bringing good of a different kind to the people they serve. A few years ago, NBC’s “ER” gave voices to fictional doctors and patients in Darfur, and now the real doctors are offering a voice to the people of the Congo. War has ravaged that country for nearly a decade, bringing with it poverty, cruelty, and disease. It’s been especially brutal for women, because child soldiers and career soldiers alike used rape as a weapon against the women. It was an event so big and awful, it’s been hard to see. That’s why Doctors Without Borders started Condition: Critical, a website which allows people to speak out about their experiences and for the rest of us to communicate back with our support.

Shun, Shag Or Marry: Notorious Cheating Athletes

Scandaltastic politicians aren’t the only ones who run around on their wives. These days, it seems every dude who makes a buck or two has to go gallivanting off into the night while his wife is asleep in bed. Don’t get offended, boys, I’m only stereotyping a little. Sadly, athletes seem to be some of the worst offenders. Maybe it’s all that testosterone or their obsession with scoring? Either way, all this Tiger Woods drama has reminded us that athletes are notorious for running around. But don’t fret, Tiger, you’re in good company … with Alex Rodriguez and Kobe Bryant, that is. After the jump, which of these players (pun!) we’d shun, shag and marry. Keep reading »

A New Way To Wax … Your Clothes?

Being a girly girl during winter is never fun. Seriously, when did tights ever become a “cold-weather fashion staple”? Do they do anything to keep you warm? No. So you have two options—shiver and bear it or pile on the layers, abominable snowman-style. Or, you can try waxing your clothes. Wait, what? Keep reading »
