Sort Of Tacky And Rad At The Same Time

We’re a little confused. A friend sent this link and when we clicked on it, we came across this duvet for sale beneath the tag line: “The Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn’t have to!” The idea of sleeping under a chic, faux-cardboard box may seem a little, um, insensitive, but 30 percent of the profits go to a British charity for young homeless people. Sooo …. And we have to admit the print does look kind of cool. Up to you, folks. [$55, Dutch By Design] Keep reading »

10 Shocking Celebrity Threesomes

gerard butler threesome 102309 jpg
Just a few days ago, Gerard Butler was bragging to Alexa Chung that he is a fan of the threesome. Then, last night, after enjoying a dinner at New York’s Soho House, he supposedly left with Jessica Simpson and her hairstylist/BFF Ken Paves. So, uh, did a little something-something happen after? Yeah, that’s probably just wishful thinking. But here are celebrity threesomes that actually happened. Or maybe kinda sorta went down, according to rumors. [NY Post]

7 Phrases Men Love To Hear

And it’s not just women who want these things — men do too! Below are seven things you can say to a man, at any stage of your love life, that will leave him glowing. Keep reading »

The Ultimate In Halloween Face Masks

So, I’m late to this train, but apparently, every year, MAC Cosmetics asks their artists from around the world to submit their fantasy Halloween makeup looks that can be recreated for you and me. (Sort of a great way to put in minimal effort on the Halloween front—they paint your face and you throw on those randy cat ears you’ve still got kicking around from last year. An instant getup!) Check out a video on how they put together the makeup sheets, like the one above, into actual faces, on real-live people—after the jump! Keep reading »

Toenail Removal Surgery And Other Scary Athlete Behavior

Athletes take their chosen sports super seriously. I mean, that’s why I train year-round to be a competitive eater (I’ll get you yet, Kobayashi!). But as with anything, intense training can go to the extremes. According to The New York Times, some long-distance runners are getting their toenails surgically removed, rather than dealing with black and blue toenails or nails falling off slowly and causing pain. Seriously, some marathoners are having acid poured into their nail beds to do away with them permanently. One podiatrist said, “A lot of them look at their toenails as useless appendages, remnants of claws from evolutionary times long ago. I’ve heard them say, ‘Toenails are dead weight.’” Some of them even sport t-shirts that say “Toenails are for sissies.” [NY Times]

If you think that’s scary, there’s a slew of other tactics that athletes use to get ahead. Keep reading »

Celebrities Who’ve Been Banned For Bad Behavior

Lindsay Lohan has finally been un-banned from Avenue, the club where she famously (?) accused Justin Timberlake of cheating on Jessica Biel via Twitter. She went back to the club twice this week after she, as the New York Post reported, “besieged the management with calls and e-mails to let her back in, and she promised to be on her best behavior.” The behavior management includes abstaining from alcohol—she’s going so far as to send back drinks bought by other guests. [NY Post]

Celebs really have a knack for warming people’s hearts with their charisma and giant heads, but every once in a while, celebs get banned. Dun dun dun. Keep reading »

Should Mischa Barton Retire From Television?

I’m bummed. First, “The O.C.” killed off Mischa Barton in season three (naturally, season four was the show’s last), and now Mischa’s latest attempt at television glory, the CW’s ill-fated “Beautiful Life,” has become the textbook example of early cancellation. And thus, Mischa says she is done with television. “I think I need to back away from the whole TV approach,” she said. “That whole world of network television, probably isn’t, for me, a good idea now. I need to start reading for more serious roles.” But, Mischa, that’s only strike two! Give it one more shot. [Pop Eater]

It feels like we’ve heard this before, from other actresses who were tired of the stress of weekly production and seasonal uncertainty. Let’s see if leaving behind the small screen worked for them. Keep reading »

Madonna And Other Celebrity Neighbors From Hell

Central Park West resident Karen George is suing her co-op board because it has not reigned in her “neighbor from hell”—Madonna. George claims that Madonna makes an insane amount of noise, especially when she rehearses in her living space and the dance music literally vibrates the walls. The building super says Madonna’s been threatened with eviction. Um, who throws out the Material Girl? You’d think keeping her around would up property values enough that folks wouldn’t be so concerned about the noise? [All Headline News]

Interestingly, she isn’t nearly the only celeb we wouldn’t want to live next door to.

  • Istanbul is the latest of several cities (think L.A., Philadelphia, etc.) to jump on the Fashion Week bandwagon. New York, Paris and L.A. are gonna be pissed that other cities are copping their style! [Modelinia]
