Beauty Test Drive: Smooth Away Hair Removal Pads

I really hate shaving my legs. Then again, does anyone actually enjoy this activity? No matter what, I end up with a few nicks and bleeds. As for Nair? No way I would put up with the smell. And waxing? Forget it. Ouchy. So these doo-dads piqued my interest while I was in the drugstore the other day. (And weirdly, I realized that Smooth Away has been doing a ton of advertising in my neighborhood with posters at bus stops. Guess I was swayed.) But really, who isn’t interested in whether these things really work or not? The verdict, after the jump!

Famous Friends Reflect On DJ AM’s Death


We’re very sad over the news that DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his apartment this weekend. The New York Police Department has released new details on what went down—Goldstein was supposed to be heading to Las Vegas to DJ a party, only he never made it to the flight. Two friends that were supposed to travel with him called the police when they still couldn’t reach him 16 hours later. The police went to his apartment and busted down the door. They found him in bed, in sweatpants—next to bottles of prescription pills and a crack pipe, which is extremely sad because he’d been sober for more than a decade and had just wrapped an MTV show called “Gone Too Far” where he helped inspire drug addicts to overcome their addictions. See an interview he did about the show above. [People]

We aren’t the only ones sad about his death. DJ AM used to date Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore, and was a fixture on the celebrity party circuit. Here’s what people of note are saying about his death. Keep reading »

365 Days In Paris: You Say Goodbye And I Say Bonjour

I can’t believe I leave for Paris tomorrow. I haven’t slept in two nights. I’m so wired. The past week has been a complete whirlwind. Between packing, last-minute doctor appointments, and taking care of arrival details, I’ve also been organizing tons of goodbyes. I’ve lived in New York City for most of my life (I was born here and grew up in Manhattan), so I didn’t think I’d feel sentimental about leaving this city that feels so normal. And normalness, as you may know, is my pet peeve these days. But all of a sudden, I do feel a pang of sadness, not so much for my surroundings, but for the people in them. My whole family is here, and we’re very close. My biggest fear is that I’ll come back from Paris a year later to find everyone’s changed. Who knows—by the time I return, Big Sister could have a baby, or my parents could suddenly be old. Keep reading »

Over-Excitement On “The X Factor”

A contestant on the UK’s largest talent search show “The X Factor” got a little, shall we say, over-excited when his turn to sing, uh, came up. Steve, an unemployed 50-year-old man, sang “It’s My Party” while his daughters looked on in horror backstage. “I don’t know what’s happening,” uttered one as she tried to shield her eyes from the growing bulge in her father’s pants. “I could tell you were having a good time up there,” said Simon Cowell when Steve finished his song. But the best line of the evening went to judge Louis Walsh — otherwise known as “the judge who isn’t Simon Cowell” — who quipped, “I just don’t think you have the full package.” Maybe not … but he sure was close.
