We all have our limits when it comes to the height of our heels. I’m prone to wearing more extreme shoes, I suppose, because I’ve been short since forever. I stopped growing when I was 13–my mom blames it on me becoming vegetarian at that age–and in order to not seem too midget-y, I took to wearing heels early on. I’m only five feet tall without shoes on, so my feet have adapted to wearing unreasonably high heels over time–even though they often make my friends cringe. My highest pair of heels maxes out at around 5 inches and they’re perfectly comfortable, because I’ve learned that it’s often not the heel height that makes shoes suck, but the slope of the arch that creates the most pain. Too extreme an arch and your foot will constantly be sliding forward into the toe of your shoe. That’s why I love a shoe with a small platform on it–it helps soften the slope and make the shoe infinitely more wearable. But everybody’s different. I have friends who can’t bear to walk in anything but flats. Others that wouldn’t be caught dead without their stilettos on. So tell us: What’s your take on high heels? How high is too high and what’s just right for your feet? Keep reading »

Remember “Romancing the Stone,” the 1984 flick starring Kathleen Turner as a romance novelist who heads to South America to bring home her kidnapped sister and ends up getting into all sorts of shenanigans with Michael Douglas? Well, NBC is developing the concept into a series. Only, this time around, said woman will be looking for her missing brother while teaming up with a hot dude for weekly adventures.
And it appears that “The Blues Brothers” will be getting a small-screen treatment, too. Keep reading »
“My mom pretty much forced me to do this show. She did the same thing to Kim and now she’s doing it to me. [My mom told me] always smile and be yourself and let people see a side of you that they’ve never seen when they watch our show.”
—Rob Kardashian explains why he decided to sign on for “Dancing with the Stars.” Because his mama, Kris Jenner, told him to. Wait a second, Kris also strong-armed Kim into doing the show in 2008? Why did both of them listen to her? Kim, if your mom told you to
jump off a bridge participate in a truly embarrassing ’80s music video, would you do that too? Oh. [Wet Paint]
After the jump, Carson Kressley on his big fear for the show. Keep reading »
“There’s not enough space in this article. Not even enough pages in this magazine! The truth is, most celebrities are doing the same things most other people are doing every day … work, have dinner, hang out with your friends when you can, try and keep up with the crazy world we’re living in and squeeze in some zzz’s. There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating. Most of it’s just bulls**t, however entertaining.
—Jennifer Aniston‘s response to Glamour magazine asking her if there are any tabloid rumors she’d like to set straight. I’m kind of glad that, while pointing out that tabs make stories out of nothing, she does find it entertaining. I am now picturing her rummaging through Us Weekly and Life & Style cracking up at the stories she sees about herself. [Glamour] Keep reading »
