Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Never Lose Another Pen

I live in constant fear that one day I will open a kitchen drawer or a hall closet and every pencil, pen, and bobby pin I’ve ever lost will come tumbling out and I will die, because you guys, I lose a staggering number of writing utensils and bobby pins every day. For example, yesterday I very mindfully placed 3 new pens and 5 bobby pins in my purse. Today there are none. While I can’t say for sure that keeping a zippered pencil pouch in my purse would help remedy this problem, at the very least it would be cute. [$10.50, Madame Cupcake] Keep reading »

Quickies: “Botox Mom” Says She Was Lying & Rashida Jones In Lingerie For “GQ”

  • Kerry Campbell, the mother who said she gave her her eight-year-old daughter Botox so she could compete in beauty pageants, now claims she made everything up. In fact, she says her name isn’t even Kerry Campbell! A woman named Sheena Upton claims she is an actress who was offered $200 by The Sun, a tawdry British tabloid, to “play the role of Kerry Campbell” for an article. Upton/Campbell’s daughter was removed from her home by Child Protective Services, then returned after the girl was examined by doctors. Media outlets who interviewed Upton/Campbell, like “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition,” are now scrambling to figure out her true identity (and the rest of the truth!). [TMZ]

Brad Pitt Always Loved The Chaos Of A Big Family

“I know it seems extreme from the outside, but I’ve always kind of operated this way. When I know, I know, and why mess around? I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it – this left some indelible mark on me – if I was ever going to do it, that’s the way I was going to do it.”

Brad Pitt talks about going from zero kids to six kids, three biological and three adopted, all in the span of just a few years. During a press conference for “Tree of Life,” Brad said he’s always wanted to have a big family. Oh, and he also let it slip that he and Angelina Jolie are hoping to do another movie together. Here’s hoping they go for a fresh idea rather than, say, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith 2.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
