“I am absolutely heartbroken. For those of us lucky enough to have known him, Adam radiated a contagious exuberance for life and also personified the very definition of a true friend. To say that he will be missed beyond words is an understatement. My heart goes out to his loved ones.”
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.

And cute. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
I’ve expressed my love of Taylor Jacobson, one of Rachel Zoe’s styling associates who is often called “crabby” by people who don’t understand her deep personality. But I’m not choosing sides in the Taylor-Brad debate because Brad Goreski is just as lovable in his own way. And the fact that Brad’s a guy doesn’t mean I can’t cop his style: We already have a love of plaid and bow ties in common!
Stacy Haiduk from “The Young & The Restless” arrived at the Daytime Emmy Awards with a special friend for a handbag. We knew taxidermy-inspired accessories were kind of “in,” but we didn’t realize they were red carpet appropriate… [Los Angeles, 8/30/09]
UPDATE: According to DListed:
The creepy cat of my nightmares is actually Stacy’s co-star on the “Young and the Restless.” Stacy plays Mary Jane, a crazy bitch who thinks her dead cat is real.
