Friends With Benefits: Awesome When It Works, Even Though It Usually Doesn’t

Full Disclosure: I was asked by our sponsor to host a discussion where two bloggers provide the male – the uber masculine gentleman, ahem, cad behind The Superficial – and female perspectives – that would be moi – on having “friends with benefits.” (If you haven’t figured out what the movie is yet, here’s a hint: I would have sex with both of the stars and not just because I am a wee bit slutty.)

Mariah Carey’s Daughter Doesn’t Like Her Photo Being Taken

The word on the street had been that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were looking to sell the first photo of their twins, Morrocan and Monroe, to a tabloid for $200K. Maybe they were mad at that lowball offer—I mean, Angelina and Brad got $14 million for theirs? Because over the weekend, Mariah posted a photo of Monroe on Twitter along with the caption, “#dembabiesruntings -This is baby Monroe saying ‘no pictures dahhhhling’ at 7+1/2 weeks..oh dear.” Man, that little palm is adorbs.

Love At First Stroke: OPI’s “Play The Peonies” Nail Polish

It’s been years since I’ve fallen in love with a pink nail lacquer. I usually prefer variations of gray, which are season-less, or some sort of red, which a friend says has become my signature. But I was curious about the new, limited-edition Nice Stems! by OPI collection of shades of pink, from pale frosty pink to rich fuchsia. I was initially drawn to “I Lily Love You,” because who doesn’t love a tint of pink with flecks of glitter? But last week, I wanted something new, so I tried “Play the Peonies,” a soft, frosty pink from the same collection. And what do you know? I fell in love. Keep reading »

13 Top-Secret Celebrity Weddings

15 Top-Secret Celebrity Weddings

This morning, we told you that actress Carey Mulligan (“An Education,” “Shame”) married Marcus Mumford, of the band Mumford & Sons, in a super-secret ceremony this past weekend. The twosome had only been dating for about five months when they got engaged — not that they ever officially confirmed their plans to wed. (Something else I didn’t know until today — the two were childhood pen pals! Is that not the cutest?)  So it’s no surprise that their wedding, held in a barn on a working farm (would you expect anything else from one of the Mumford boys, I mean really?), was kept completely hush-hush. We assume that’s why we weren’t invited anyway. [Huffington Post]

Carey isn’t the only celeb who’s gotten hitched in secret. We’ve rounded up a slew of other hush-hush celebrity marriages to which we also weren’t invited.

Florence Henderson Got Crabs From The Then Mayor Of New York

“I was lonely. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it. Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata. He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship.”

—We suspected that Florence Henderson, aka Carol Brady, led quite the swinging life in the ’60s and ’70s when we found out about her shenanigans with Barry Williams, aka Greg Brady. But in her new memoir, Life Is Not A Stage, Florence reveals that she once had a one-night stand with New York mayor John Lindsay, even though she was married at the time. And, uh, brought home a little souvenir. Eek! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Remembers Dog With A Tattoo — Would You?

Jennifer Aniston debuted her first tattoo this weekend, cursive script on the side of her foot spelling out “Norman.” Norman was Aniston’s dog who died in May at the age of 15. I think this is such a lovely tribute. I have long thought that eventually the only other ink I would get (besides the vaguely regrettable Chinese characters on my back) would be my dog Lucca’s name. I love her and want her with me always, just as Norman is now always walking with Jen. Okay, now I am tearing up. RIP Norman! Is a tattoo of a pet’s name something you would ever get?
