The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “True Blood” Season 4 Starts With A Bite

Last night’s season premiere of “True Blood” was as sprinkled with faerie dust as I ever could have hoped for. Since HBO decided to release the first six minutes of the episode weeks ago—which is kind of like the television equivalent of a drug dealer giving you your first dose free—I was wondering what tricks Alan Ball and crew would have up their sleeve. (If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT.) And this was the big twist: although Sookie is only in the faerie realm for a few minutes, she was missing from Bon Temps, Louisiana, for a year and two weeks. In fact, everyone—from sheriff Bellefleur to Bill to Jason—had presumed her dead. The joy of last night’s episode was catching up with all the characters we love and seeing where they ended up a year later, sans Sookie.

After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF of the episode. Keep reading »

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.
