Crave: CND’s Colour & Effects Nail Polish (Win It!)

We’re not math whizzes, but we do know that having seven nail polish bottles in our bathroom means we can paint our nails seven different colors. Soon, however, nail polish arithmetic will get a whole lot more complicated thanks to CND’s upcoming Colour & Effects line. With 50 Colours available — from Brilliant White to Blackjack, and everything in between — along with 15 Effects (variations on pearly, shimmery, and glittery) to layer underneath or on top, there aren’t endless possibilities, but there are hundreds more than we can count on our uniquely manicured hands. [$9 - $11, CND]

We’re giving five readers a bottle of Oil Slick and a bottle of Sapphire Sparkle from CND’s Colour & Effects line (which doesn’t even hit salons until later this fall!), but you have to work if you want your nails to look good. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Aug. 28 through Thursday, Sept. 3 — will be awarded with a set. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Beauty Test Drive: Diorshow Iconic Mascara

Generally speaking, I’m happy with my mascara. Fiberwig and I have been through a lot together and it’s remained pretty true, never smudging and leaving me raccoon-eyed when I’m going for smoky-eyed. But every once in a while, you’ve just got to try something new. When I received a bag of Dior goodies to road-test the other day, I knew the time had come to betray the mascara that’s seen me through everything from first dates to weddings. (Other people’s weddings, that is…)

I felt a little dirty at first, as I swiped on the Diorshow Iconic mascara, wand clenched in my sweaty, guilty hand. Then something amazing happened. Keep reading »

Jaycee Lee Dugard: Her Kidnapper Calls A Reporter And Her Stepdad Appears On “Today”


Holy creepy. Last night, Philip Garrido, the man who allegedly kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard, kept her in a compound in his backyard, raped her, and fathered her two children, called a reporter from jail. Listen to the recording above. He says, “In the end you’re going to find the most powerful heart-warming story.” Yeah, somehow I just don’t think that’s gonna be the case. Happy Friday! More info on this horrific case, after the jump… Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: A Coke-Dealing Boyfriend & A Serial Monogamist

“I met my current boyfriend about six months ago and there was an INSTANT attraction. At first he was perfect: he would make time for me, we would go out and do things together. He wasn’t like any other guy I’ve ever dated — he was polite, open-minded, caring, funny, and RESPECTFUL. I was the one to kiss him first…he even waited longer than I wanted to have sex with me. Here’s the thing though: he’s a coke dealer. As the relationship has progressed, we’ve broken up and gotten back together numerous times and though we’re together now, and I can honestly say that I’m in love with this man, I hate what he does. We don’t hang out much and he blames it on his “work.” I see him MAYBE once a week… is that normal for people who have been dating for eight months? He tells me he’s going to quit his job one day, but I’m not sure, and I can’t push him to quit because, to him, it’s a nice way of making money. I know he sounds like a loser, but I’ve never been with anyone like him before and I can’t stay away from him. Should I just leave a person who I love and care about because of what he does, and try to find someone with a respectful job?”

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: Kim Still Can’t Sing In Public

Kim has latched onto Kandi like I predicted she would. Really, I can’t blame Kim for wanting to become close to Kandi because it’s difficult to be on a show if you’re not friends with any of the other four women. Kim visited Kandi at her studio and actually convinced Kandi to produce “Tardy for the Party,” the song she and NeNe created last season, but Kim refused to sing the song in front of Kandi. Chances are, Kim, if you’re too shy to sing with others around, then you’re not a singer. Meanwhile, Lisa and NeNe were in L.A. visiting Lisa’s family. Please tell me NeNe and I weren’t the only ones shocked to find out Lisa’s mom is black and her father is Asian — I thought it’d be the other way around. NeNe met a great part of Lisa’s Asian family members because it was her grandmother’s 92nd birthday. The best advice of the night was when Lisa’s grandmother said she slathered Vaseline all over her face throughout her life to keep wrinkles at bay. And it really works. Grandma didn’t have one wrinkle on her face. I’m too scared of acne to try it, though. As it turns out, Lisa did visit the grave site of her older brother Meho, but I still don’t get why that was such a priority for her other brother. If she didn’t want to go, she shouldn’t have been forced. Sad, sad Sheree didn’t have a big part in last night’s episode. She’s planning another Sh*t by Sheree fashion show, but for some reason Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss look-alike models aren’t showing up for her auditions. I wonder why. Keep reading »

How ‘Bout These John Galliano Lace-Up Platforms?

The arctic chill of Russia is what inspired John Galliano’s Fall 2009 collection. From balloon-y peasant blouses to full-skirted wool coats, everything echoed an Eastern European winter. Everything except the shoes, or more to the point: these shoes. Besides the furry pom-poms, nothing about Galliano’s Fall 2009 lace-up boots says winter. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them. They’re available in an array of colors, but our favorites are the red (here) and purple. Loving don’t mean buying though. These pretty pom-poms are sure to set one back a pretty penny: several hundred (over a grand?) dollars worth. [Fab Sugar] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan’s “Comeback” To Be Televised?

Remember that time in 2008 when Dina Lohan told TV Guide that she didn’t want Lindsay to appear on “Living Lohan” by saying, “Doing reality TV would almost be taking a step backward as far as her career goes.” Isn’t that a hoot?! Because a year and only one casting in an ABC Family movie later it seems that Lindsay is ready to take a giant leap backward for mankind. Keep reading »

Gallery: Minka Kelly And Derek Jeter Are Getting Hitched, Plus Other Secret Engagements

According to the New York Post, Yankee Derek Jeter and actress Minka Kelly are “secretly engaged.” Supposedly, the wedding is going to take place in the fall, when baseball season is donezo. Minka’s rep is totally denying the rumor, but then again, she denied the fact that they were dating in the first place. [NY Post]

We still don’t get why celebrity couples are so secretive. Check out some other celebs who kept their engagements on the DL.

Child Abuse Charges For Phoenix Family Who Abandoned Their 8-Year-Old Girl After Rape

Finally, some good news to come out of this sad story: Phoenix police will pursue felony child abuse charges for the parents, Liberian refugees, who abandoned their eight-year-old daughter in July — after she was allegedly gang-raped by four boys — because they were ashamed.

The boys, ages 10 to 14, who are also Liberian refugees, allegedly lured the eight-year-old girl to a storage shed, by promising her chewing gum, where the alleged assault took place. When the parents learned their daughter had been raped, they apparently told police they did not want her to return home. She has been living in protective custody since the incident.

Ditching their kid is not the main reason police are pursuing abuse charges, however. According to the Associated Press, the young girl and her family have been referred to Child Protective Services in Phoenix five times since the girl was four years old. Altogether, past reports (including several times the young girl was found by neighbors or police to be wandering around the neighborhood by herself stealing or begging for food) could comprise felony child abuse.
