Maybe I should start reading the National Enquirer more often. They may have been right about John Edwards being the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby. Last August, Edwards confessed that he’d had an affair with Hunter, his campaign videographer, and went on to divulge way too much information on ABC’s “Nightline” about their trysts. But he’s always held fast that he couldn’t be the father of Hunter’s now 18-month-old baby because they were done before the baby was conceived. North Carolina news station WRAL says inside sources have told them that Edwards is close to stepping up to the plate and admitting he’s the baby’s father. Poor Elizabeth Edwards. I’m not sure which is worse—having a husband who cheated and denies having a love child or having a husband who has a love child. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Armor-like clothing and jewelry seem to be having a moment right now. Denim brand Acne is slated to offer a pair of armored jeans in its spring/summer 2010 lookbook. The polished plates on the knees, thighs, and calves will protect you if your heel catches and causes you to tumble to the sidewalk — or if a jealous friend kicks you in the shins. We’d like to know whether they make your legs sweat, or if the armor is somehow breathable. [via NY Mag] Keep reading »
Jack, why are you lying on the sidewalk? I understand that you are on vacation in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France, and I am sure you are feeling very relaxed, indeed, and I hear that the mechanics were working on your boat, but a public nap? Well, you are Jack Nicholson. So, I guess that means you can do whatever you want. [Splash News, 8/11/09] Keep reading »
Here’s a shocker. It looks like Bernie Madoff, the guy who cheated thousands of people out of $65 billion, cheated on his wife, Ruth. Sheryl Weinstein, a 60-year-old bottle blond, claims she had an affair with Madoff. She’s written all about their hotel trysts in her book, Madoff’s Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie and Me, which comes out on August 25.
According to The Daily Beast, Madoff often had lunch dates with Weinstein. On the way out, he’d tell his secretary, “She’s a pain in the ass, but I have to go out with her for lunch,” to cover his tracks. Aww, what a charmer. Keep reading »
Cops were called to the Gosselins’ house in Pennsylvania last night when Kate showed up unexpectedly. As Jon and Kate have mentioned to anyone who will listen, one of the unique ways they’re navigating their divorce, besides letting it play out in front of millions of people, is by keeping the kids in the house and taking turns staying with them. When it’s not Jon’s turn, he can be spotted gallivanting around with young women practically half his age. When it’s not her turn to stay with the kids, Kate, perhaps to her credit, tries to remain as close to them as possible, even if it means showing up at the house unannounced. Keep reading »
Rich and famous Hayden Panetierre says she can’t get a man because of all the media attention she gets.
“It’s very, very difficult and people have no idea what they do to peoples’ relationships. They destroy them. The paparazzi and the public. The public wants to read about your personal life, and the paparazzi give it to them by nosing into your personal life and saying things that are just not true and horrible.”

The potential threat of having your love life exposed on the internets is no one’s aphrodisiac. After the jump, the worst relationship dealbreaker jobs on the planet. Keep reading »
Did you know that designer greats Coco Chanel and Valentino Garavani didn’t achieve fashion icon status on their own? As it turns out, French designer Madeleine Vionnet was more than a little responsible for their massively successful couture feats. Not only did she reshape the fashion world with the “invention” of the bias cut, cowl neck, halter top, and handkerchief dress, she helped create a truly progressive style for women in the early 20th century. You know how French women always look gorgeous, modern, and like they never try too hard? That was her. Keep reading »
