How High Is Too High–For Your Heels?

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 »

Morning Quickies: Jake Gyllenhaal’s Exes Are Laughing At Him

  • Jake Gyllenhaal must have heard a ringing in his ears recently: Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift had lunch together last week and dished about their mutual ex. “They talked about how vain and self-aborbed Jake can be,” a source told Us Weekly. “They laughed about it.” Poor Jake. [US Weekly]
  • Remember that hair salon I wrote about yesterday that depicted domestic violence in one of its advertisements? Someone vandalized it. Fluid in Edmonton, Alberta, was tagged with the message, “This is art that is wrongly named violence. That was violence that was wrongly named art.” [The Gloss]
  • Some women just aren’t that into oral sex. [xoJane]

“The Blues Brothers” And “Romancing The Stone” Getting Rebooted For TV Shows

For the past few years, ’70s TV shows like “Charlie’s Angels” and “Hawaii Five-O” have been the thing to reboot for TV shows. But now it feels like ’80s movies are having their moment. 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 »

Rob Kardashian’s Mom Forced Him To Do “Dancing With The Stars”

“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 »

When Celebs Pen Irate Letters

When Celebs Pen Irate Letters
Have the editors of The Daily Mail seen Eliza Dushku wield a stake ? They made the mistake of pissing her off last week when they published a piece lampooning Hayden Panettierefor participating in a convention where fans were charged “the princely sum” of $30 for an autograph. The newspaper speculated that Hayden must be in financial trouble. The story also mentioned a few other stars—like Tom Felton of “Harry Potter” as well as Eliza—as being there, too. And Eliza was not too pleased. She wrote the following letter to the editor:

Dear Sir, I write to you because the piece of your paper that concerns me was anonymous. The piece was 27th August titled “Are times that tough Hayden?” ridiculing and attacking the actor Hayden Panettiere for participating in a Toronto Expo fan gathering where fans are charged money (Oh shock! Oh shame!) in exchange for autographs, signed pictures, and the chance for a bit of face time with their favorite celebrity. My dear editor, how does Hayden’s action differ from what you do for much of the content of your “news” paper? Yes, you will have to tell me where you think you get off attempting to diminish a young actor who is attempting to reach out to fans in one of the only practical ways provided by the entertainment industry, an industry your paper is a part of and largely dependent on. It is particularly shoddy that the author scoffs at Hayden’s lack of “Harry Potter” or “Spiderman” fame while leaving himself unnamed as “Daily Mail Reporter.” Talk about being a parasite! Seriously, Sir, for shame.” [Daily Mail, Bleeding Cool]

After the jump, more stars who’ve written irate letters.

Jennifer Aniston Would Need A Few Hours To Set Straight The Tabloid Rumors About Her

“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 »
