Ryan Gosling — an actor who The Frisky has totally neutral opinions on — says that “Blue Valentine” is a film that couples should watch together, as it’s “a cautionary tale about what can happen to love if you ignore it and you take it for granted.” We happen to think that while the love between Gosling’s Dean and Michelle Williams‘ Cindy is far from perfect, the film itself is pretty close.

“We dated, very casually. He’s a very sweet, nice guy … the complete antithesis of what you’d imagine. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated… I don’t really like when men buy me ridiculous gifts, especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts. I really don’t like gifts from rappers in general, since I’m not a hooker.”
—Chelsea Handler finally comes clean to Piers Morgan that she and 50 Cent did date for a little while. Apparently, Fiddy showered her in expensive gifts and she wasn’t so into that. So she called things off. [People]

The world has gone Pippa Middleton crazy. Just as People splashed her on the cover along with the headline “Fun, flirty, and suddenly famous, the knockout sibling who stole the show,” the interwebs promised us topless photos of Pippa, this time sans bra. Here is the most scandalous of the new images, which show Pippa taking off her bikini top while on vacation in Ibiza. I don’t know. If this is the most scandalous image the paparazzi can get from a vacation to Ibiza, she may not be such a wild child after all. [Global Grind] Keep reading »
