Brittany “Bre” Scullark, an “America’s Next Top Model” Cycle Five semi-finalist, was arrested in NYC yesterday for disorderly conduct. She argued with a woman in a Starbucks who claimed Bre had taken her laptop and wouldn’t give it back. Bre claims she wasn’t trying to steal the woman’s laptop. She thought it belonged to a relative who was with her. When the woman asked for it back, Bre became rowdy and spewed a string of expletives and insults, insisting the laptop belonged to her family member. The police were called, and she was taken into custody and issued a summons. Bre will go before a judge at a later date, but this isn’t the first time she’s over-reacted. You may remember the time she poured out another model’s Red Bull because she suspected her of eating her food, during her cycle of “ANTM.” Sadly, Bre isn’t the only “Top Model” with bad manners. In July, we learned Caridee English is a complete slob even when she’s subletting. [TMZ] Keep reading »
Handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff has won over shoppers for years now with her popular “morning after” purse, which is pretty much the perfect bag. So when Minkoff recently expanded her empire to include a small collection of clothing, we were naturally excited. Her fall ready-to-wear line has just been posted on Shopbop, and the designs are fairly strong—although, obviously the power piece is that incredible purple pleated blazer (can’t say we’ve seen a lot like it). The rest of the collection includes tops with buttons and zippers that are placed in ways mirroring RM’s handbags, as well as some softer items like a vintage-y polka dot blouse and a floral robe dress.
Only thing is, the collection is expensive. Like, really expensive. Perhaps Minkoff just knows that if her cult clients put down for a bag, they’d be just as pumped for clothes as well. What do you think? [Shopbop.com] Keep reading »

Unlike her mummy Courtney Love, Francis Bean Cobain is clearly no media whore. The two partied down together in lower Manhattan at the Marc Jacobs show after-party (the same one where Lady Gaga basically went on stage naked). [NYC, 9/15/09] Keep reading »
And I thought Elizabeth Taylor and Larry King had been married a lot of times? Turns out that Wok Kundor of Malaysia has them both seriously beat in the playah department. Wok is 107 years old, so, granted, she’s had a lot of time to play the field. Still, she’s been married a whopping 22 times! Her current husband, Muhammed, is 37 and they’ve been married for four years. But, because he’s off to the city for a few months, Wok is now hunting for husband #23 (maybe Michael Jordan?) in case he decides to leave her. “I realize that I am an aged woman. I don’t have the body nor am I a young woman who can attract anyone,” she said. But aww, Muhammed swears he isn’t going anywhere and can’t dream of a life without her. I don’t know, Wok—looks like you found a keeper. [CNN]

It’s no secret that most celebs hate the paparazzi following them and interrupting their private lives. Some get so annoyed with the paps that they occasionally turn the lens on the photogs. This really isn’t a productive move because no one will pay top dollar for a photo of some random person. But photos of celebrities doing their best paparazzo impression are really funny. Have a bit of a snicker as you check out the gallery of these 12 annoyed celebs.
When I was a freshman in college, I developed a huge girl crush on a senior who lived in my dorm. I blindly soaked up everything she told me. So, when she said, “The one piece of advice I can give to you is start using eye cream now,” I ran out the next day and purchased an anti-wrinkle potion, and dutifully slathered it on every day. While I didn’t see any difference, it apparently has the potential to speed up aging in young women, reports the Daily Mail. Keep reading »
After years of envying Kate Moss‘s seemingly infinite closet and Gisele‘s parade of bang-able boyfriends, a girl would be right to think the hardest part of a model’s life is choosing whose yacht in Ibiza to sunbathe topless on today.
But a few years ago, “America’s Next Top Model” began to peel back the layers of the modeling industry (well, with a weird, Tyra Banks-ian spin), and then a blogger called Tatiana The Anonymous Model chimed in on Jezebel about her take on a model’s life. But the piece de resistance on the Ugly Side Of Modeling canon is Hungry: A Young Model’s Story of Appetite, Ambition, and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves by plus-size model Crystal Renn.

Stand-up comedian and author Aaron Karo rose to fame as a college freshman at the University of Pennsylvania, where he began writing down what he called “Ruminations,” small observations about the universal truths of college: the dorm rooms, the friends, the food, the classes, the beer pong … and the women. (A sample “rumination” from September 2000: “You know what a great moment in college life is? Those two seconds. The two seconds when you first wake up at 3 p.m. after a hard night of partying. Because in those first two seconds you haven’t yet remembered that last night you threw up on your floor, punched a cop, and hooked up with an ugly chick. Savor those two seconds as best you can.”) One email to his close friends was forwarded to their friends, and to their friends. What started as a funny late-night email grew to an email newsletter, which grew to a stand-up comedy career, which grew to three published books. Keep reading »
